SheppiesGrandma: Hello from WV

edited March 2012 in Introduce yourself
Hello from Northern WV! I am an older LEGO fan who discovered the hobby only a year ago. I very much enjoy building a LEGO neighborhood. I am learning how to make more complex projects, with multiple levels and all VERY colorful! Building is therapeutic for me. A wonderful way to relax and share with others.

    Welcome @SheppiesGrandma, it can be a very relaxing hobby, assuming you never check your credit card statement. :)

    Hi there, and welcome to the wonderful world of Lego!

    Hopefully there will be shows you can attend (and exhibit) close to you. That is one aspect I really enjoy - showing creations (or just assisting with a show), and then talking to the public about it (they're usually in awe!).

    I would like to attend the Brick Fair show in VA in August. I'm rather shy about showing my creations, as they are still very simple compared to several I've seen.

    Welcome to Brickset @SheppiesGrandma!

    We've all got to start somewhere with our creations so you shouldn't feel shy or embarrassed about them. Mine or nasty looking. All I can say is I have very polite friends.

    Welcome to Brickset. :o)

    Flump6523, why do you think your creations are nasty looking?

    ^^ As someone who has collaborated with you on a model Mr Flump, I take exception to that. Your building skills are just fine, you did a stellar job on our castle, most of the structural stuff in fact, while I did mostly faffy little bits. And your determination to always attain perfection is admirable, even if it does make you occasionally grumpy.

    Sorry sheppiesgrandma for hijacking your thread. Don't be afraid to share your models, it's only by practising and feedback that we learn and improve, though I agree it can be daunting at first.

    Welcome to Brickset, by the way!

    LostInTranslation, what are the various ways to share one's models?

    Welcome SheppiesGrandma, I'm in southern WV, Huntington area. Not sure of any Lego clubs nearby but there are some in Ohio and Ky.

    not that i know of, i know there are collectors about, due to the condition of "felt up" minifigure packs, and the swapping out of minifigures from sets.
