Colossal Castle Contest XII

Hi all,
First up, I just wanted to apologize for my six month hiatus. I've been blogging about LEGO for nine years now, and from time to time I've just gotten a bit run down and distracted from my family of blogs. However, in the meantime, I'm constantly going through Flickr, Brickshelf, and other sites, and probably every day I bookmark a few more things that I keep meaning to post. I've gotten a couple of nice notes asking where I've been, and I guess it's time to come back. Also, during the year I save up LEGO books to review as people are getting ready for Christmas, and want to get those posted. And so, back to blogging. Hopefully I won't have too many interruptions in the near future. I've certainly got a backlog of great creations to feature.

Okay, there are lots of great either recently completed or ongoing. I can't say I'll go back and feature everything from the last six months, but I'd be remiss if I didn't feature my favorite. I'm an admin at Classic-Castle and we're currently holding our annual contest:

Contest: Colossal Castle Contest XII
Hosted by: Classic-Castle
