I have the cottage to do, but saving that for when my son comes for Christmas.
I have absolutely loved reading this thread and seeing all of the photos of people’s tables: they provide inspiration and ideas to borrow for next year.
My wife told me to not get any ideas after showing her your Santa's Workshop.
The mosaics started me off... I saw some pictures of mosaics by Katie Walker and I was really inspired to use her designs into a whole moc. As soon as I saw her Christmas star design, it made me think of doors to Santa’s Workshop and the whole thing started from there...
Thanks for all the comments!
I had never thought of using cheese slopes before and the best part was that I had (as we all do) literally hundreds of cheese wedges lying around.
It is strange how builds evolve out of one initial starting point.
I have a seller I'm working with right now who has several boxes of sets. Trying to clarify the price, but if I can get it, I'd be the owner of, among many many other offerings, two #10193 Medieval Market Village sets and could easily incorporate them into my village.
@monkey_roo the lady with the red dress, she's got a brown hat on (reminicent of Dr Zhivago for me) is that just somebody's hair turned the other way or is that a piece?
@LuLego Amazing, love how you started from mosaics to the whole shebang, love the little scenes too.
This is our finalised WV. Already posted a picture of the mountain on the WIYLS thread, but this is the whole thing in low resolution picture. More and full resolution pictures on my Flickr Winter village album
And there's a little video of the train going round too. Would love to get a setup where I can film what the train sees, but I've not got the technology.
@omnium good luck, maybe you can get the whole family involved (grandma, grandpa, boozy auntie Susan?)
My layout this year. Not the best image, but you get the picture! (At the far right is Santa’s workshop and the snow vehicle)
This is amazing.
is there an inside to the building?
hopefully thats the flicker album :)
I have a confession: I had this photo saved on my photo stream when I built mine! When I googled ‘lego santa’s Workshop moc’ back in the summer yours is the first picture to be seen.
Yes, that was the idea. I wanted to keep all our Christmas sets together. Before, they were hard to keep organisated and looking presentable, rather than a jumbled mess.
But I didn't want to mix them up too much. So the giants overlook the little people in Winter Village. :)
Oh and sharing some pics, too :)
This is a topic I’ll certainly miss discussing after the holiday.
Already looking forward to next year’s builds.
Thanks to all who shared photos.
When can we start predicting next year’s winter village prediction?!
@EKSam, what did you use to light your scene?
It's looking like I might be able to pick up the Village Market, sealed, for $100. Fingers crossed!
Since my display was a bit more of a winter display this year, the nice advantage is it will stay up through January.
I just used the LED pucklights from Costco. Although not pictured, I also added the tiny strings of LED lights from target.
But on the other hand, I get to put everything back together next year! I even suggested to my better half to simultaneously build a set each for next years' (basically this years, but who cares) iteration. My suggestion was met with a condescending smirk.
Guess I'll just be happy she lets me collect and even display out in the open, then. ;)
Next up (after some more deconstruction): #10260 Downtown Diner and #60175!
Yesterday, I found a part of a reddish-brown clip after finishing up zip locking Santa's Workshop... Guess those pieces have a name that they break, but it's a first for me. Fortunately I've got some replacements in my inventory, and hope it'll remain the one piece that breaks whilst deconstructing.
The MOC's too and hopefully next year I will be able to make them even better.
