It’s LEGO time again in Squirrel Hill

The Squirrel Hill location of S.W.Randall Toyes & Gifts is holding its annual LEGO design competition. In the adult division my entry is up against some other really cool models. Nicholas entered as well, in an even more hotly contested age group.

I won’t ask you to vote for our entries specifically, but please do stop by the store and vote for your favorites.
Voting is open only until the end of June. (I’ll post pictures sometime after voting closes.)

Diamond in the Rough

Diamond in the Rough - a LEGO model of a crystal cave

The toy store in my neighborhood, S.W. Randall Toys & Gifts, runs an annual LEGO contest. This year, my diorama, Diamond in the Rough, won third prize in the Adult category.

The first and second place winners were models of beloved local landmarks. I’ll keep that in mind for next year! 🙂

(I’m not complaining: there’s nothing wrong with playing to your audience’s interests, and they were good models, too.)

My scene was inspired by these pictures of giant crystals. (Not diamond, alas.)
