Happy Valentine’s Day 2019

This year, for Valentine’s Day, I decided to make something for my wife rather than go out an buy a trinket. A few months ago, I had written her a poem which I posted here as a Minifigure Monday rhyme. I thought it would be nice for her to have that poem framed on her desk so that she can have a reminder of how much she means to me. So, I went out and I found another set of the Minifigures that I used in the post. I bought a shadowbox frame that could accommodate the Minifigures. Then, I made a background by painting some watercolor paper yellow, and stamping it with a painted LEGO® plate in red. I added a little scrapbook paper to accent the background, and a sticker of a LEGO® brick. As I mentioned, the poem was an original one that I wrote a while back, which was:

Contemplate a LEGO® Brick

Contemplate a LEGO® brick,
It will stick through thin and thick.
Plastic that will not degrade,
With bright colors that won’t fade.

I am like that LEGO® brick,
But it is to you I stick.
You and I will not degrade,
My love for you will not fade.

ValentinesWeb

The end product for my wife’s Valentine’s gift this year.

So, yes, I gave my wife LEGO® for Valentine’s Day. But, I think she loved it. And, yes, I know I am a geek.

Until next time,

-Tom

Minifigure Monday – Dream there was a window here…

Dream there was a window here…
(An original LEGO® inspired poem from True North Bricks)

Take a step outside your door, and walk down the street.
Contemplate what came before, underneath your feet.
Dream there was a window here, through your paradigm,
And today could disappear, for a look through time.
Flipping through the centuries, as you’d read a book.
All the planet’s memories, just for you to look.
What stood in this very spot, but ages ago?
Would you look, or would you not, would you want to know?

This poem was inspired by the LEGO® Woolly Mammoth from the Arctic Mobile Exploration Base set.

A Minifigure once said: Coffee…

I recently saw The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part. You can read my review of it if you click here. The film has many memorable moments, but one quote really stood out for me. I couldn’t help myself, I had to draw this picture and post this up beside my coffee machine at work. You can bet there is a coloring page of Lucy coming in the near future too 😉

Until next time,

-Tom
