Fidget spinners are all the rage these days for kids. Now you can make your own from LEGO! King Philbert, a.k.a. Philip D. Barket, has come up with this simple but clever LEGO design for one.

A celebration of the spring equinox (in the northern hemisphere at least).
To commemorate St Patrick’s Day this year I built a little shamrock.
Hope you remembered to wear green!
Happy Pi Day! March 14, or 3/14 as Americans write it, is a day to celebrate all things mathematical. For Pi Day this year I designed a LEGO clock face using the first 12 digits of pi instead of 1-12.

Throughout the first 24 days of December I had been posting about the Advent Calendar and Christmas Build-Up models. Each day I designed and built a MOC (My Own Creation) using the parts leftover after building each day’s Christmas Build-Up model, and while some of them are holiday themed, most were not. So I have created instructions if you want to build them yourself.

After the flurry of activity on my blog in December for the Advent Calendars you may have wondered why I disappeared… well the reason was I took a vacation to Australia right after Christmas!
I spent New Year’s in Sydney, did lots of sightseeing, and ended up at Brickvention in Melbourne. I’ll be posting the travel photos soon on a new travel blog I’m going to be starting, and will post a link to it here when it is live so you can check those out if you want. But the photos from Brickvention are now available online, and here they are! (Click images for a bigger one, or see links at the bottom to Flickr albums.)

Our final entries are Santa Claus (City), a baby polar bear stalking a fish (Friends), and Snowbacca (Star Wars). The final model from Christmas Build-Up is also Santa Claus, with an assortment of gifts. I built a sleigh and Rudolph with the leftover parts.

Day 23 of the Advent calendars – just one more to go – gives us two sleighs (City and Star Wars) and a snowman (Friends). For Christmas Build Up, I realized today I screwed up a week ago and each model since the 14th has been off by one day! So today I made up for it by building Day 14, and then used leftovers to build a MOC of a kid on a sled.
