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.)

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.

Day 18 is 75% of the way to Christmas! Have you done all your shopping? Anyway today City gives us a cookie baking firefighter, Friends gives us a Christmas tree, Star Wars gives us a nanoscale model of Jabba’s Palace, and the Build Up model is a micro scale van. I used leftover parts to make a bunny wabbit.

The 17th day of the Advent calendars gives us a kiosk (City), a couple of gifts (Friends), and a walking droid (Star Wars). In Christmas Build Up we get… I have no idea. But I built a wishing well with leftover parts from it.
