This page is dedicated to all the people out there who know the sweet feeling
of finding a brand new style of block or an old style in a new colour.
I have been collecting LEGO« bricks since I was a toddler, 34 years ago. Since then, I have added many more pieces to my collection, which now takes up a substantial part of my living and recreation rooms, and I have turned my husband into a LEGO« junkie as well. What a wonderful hobby to share!
As a child, I was a terrible builder. I spent most of my time finding pieces for my brother, assembling sets, or combining sparkly bricks into interesting shapes. It was not until I rediscovered LEGO« bricks in 2007 that I truly began to build. My projects quickly went from basic to very detailed, and my structures (houses, churches, etc.) became larger and more elaborate. I now enjoy the challenge of creating wheelchairs, lawnmowers, etc., that will suit the minifigs in my displays.
My favourite type of LEGO« is the minifig, those small people who populate the LEGO« world. I have hundreds of these friends and always delight in finding one that has a new feature. My favourite sets are those that have a medieval theme, classic Star Wars sets, and city sets, especially vehicles and construction.
I run a LEGO« user group called the Adult LEGO Alliance. We meet to share new sets and MOCs we've built, but we also volunteer at LEGO« events, providing judges and displays and offering our building expertise.
My only real pet peeve with LEGO« Group is the way they market certain sets, such as Friends or Belville, to girls while all other LEGO« sets are considered to be for boys. I remember as a young girl that some of my favourite sets were my fire station, my space rover, and my airplane. Sure princesses are cool, but so are pirates, construction crews, and trolls.
