Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime is hosting a year long challenge which is... sublime... as you'd expect with such a studio name. The challenge is named 'Focusing on Life' and every week Sally is sending a prompt on what should we focus the following week.
This week's prompt is 'Connections'. I thought hard about what to immortalize for this subject and I came back to the same one, over and over again.
By now you probably know I have a 10 year old boy. When I was his age my favourite 'toy' was... Lego. I've played Lego for as long as I can remember ~ so I never had troubles playing with the boy :) Which boy, of course, has a favourite toy: Lego. His idea of playing is dumping the 2 large bins (I mean *large*) right on the floor in the living room and start building (I am quite sure most of you are in the know when it comes with stepping on the pesky little plastic blocks... while wearing no shoes... ).
This is what he had on the floor a couple of days ago (today it's all in one pile again, I imagine the base is under some renovations... or maybe he heard about the shutdown, who knows?! :) )
Connecting thousands of minuscule plastic pieces ~ into characters, or buildings, or weapons, or machines...
Connecting little people with each other: in groups that are friends or foes ~ and always helped by some well trained and equally well love dogs (I am quite sure Star Wars didn't have dogs; our version of Lucas' quest to conquer the world can't miss the man's best friend!)
Connecting all the people, machines, weapons and buildings in one big base (it covers about half of our living room at any time)
Connecting the bases together through communications: computers, dish satellites and all sort of electronics I do not know the name of (although I have been patiently explained over and over).
Thank you for visiting our floor base today :) And if you'd like to see more connections ~ please make sure to check the rest of the group, I'm sure we'll have tons of fun today (as we do every week).
P.S. I am going to post the winner of the giveaway tomorrow!
