August!! That’s the date stamp on my last post! Time flies…
If anyone is checking in here looking for the latest issue of The Brick Collectors Magazine, I’ve got good news and bad news. I was due to publish the last issue in September, and, well, obviously that didn’t happen. I had an issue prepped and very close to completion, and then my “real” job once again interfered. I’ve taken on extra hours, which is leaving me many hours short of having time for magazine publishing.
The good news is, I do have an issue very close to being done. It’s a realistic goal for me to get it finished and out to you.
The bad news is, I don’t see my schedule allowing for regular release dates any time soon. I love putting the magazine together and I don’t want to completely abandon it, but at this point it really needs to stay a hobby without regular demands on me.
I hope you’ll still come by and continue to enjoy the magazines as they are released, and I apologize that I can’t seem to stick to a schedule. As soon as I win the lottery and don’t have to work, I promise I’ll be much more dependable.
Until then…we’ll keep you updated with our LEGO adventures as often as we possibly can. Thanks for your patience!
There isn’t a whole lot of time left to participate, but this is a neat challenge with great prizes! ReBrick is hosting a challenge to build a space-themed LEGO Friends model. You can read the guidelines here. You do have to be 16 years or older and have a ReBrick account. I wish I had more time to work on this, but I have a very busy week ahead. See if it can inspire you!

I decided it was time to update the family photo. Our son has now graduated from “shorty” legs to real legs, although I kept him sitting down in the photo so he’s still shorter than I am. Look how little LEGOGirl has grown… *sigh*
This sample of our minifig collection is a nice tour through LEGO Pirate history.
