As a great stocking filler prezzie at Christmas my parents gave me this little guy to make as they know my love for these little minions and my love of Lego. This kit is actually made by Loz® and is called Diamond Blocks and before you get stressed at the similarity to Lego, I should tell you that these are tiny at a mere 5mm tall! They are adorable! So, he has been on my workspace this week…

I thoroughly enjoyed following the instructions and putting him together layer by layer. This got a bit tricky as the pieces are so small but I persevered and after re-starting a couple of times, got into the swing of it and started concentrating a bit more!  It took a long time to build but it was great fun and lovely to do something a bit different. Check out this mini time-lapse video of the build…

I love that I remembered to take step by step photographs to make my first ever vlog (okay, its short but baby steps remember!) I am very chuffed with it and super proud of myself! 🙂

I love the little connecting round pegs for his little arms!

Isn’t he great! He brought a lot of fun to my day and it was actually very therapeutic and I found I came up with more creative thoughts and ideas once I gave myself some down time without any pressure. I am no way affiliated to the company and am not getting paid to review them; I just love this little guy and wanted to share! 

What would you make out of little bricks if you could build anything? How do you create downtime to improve creative thought? I would love to hear all about it!

    No way! This is sooooo cool! I love time-lapse and stop motion videos…and you’ve inspired me to do something similar for an upcoming blog post. Eeeek! Thanks for blowing me away with your creative ways (as always) Rachel! And that minion really is the bee’s knees.

      Haha! Thank you so much Lauren! It was a lot of fun making him and putting together all of the tiny pieces (all nd a little frustrating at times!) I am so glad I took photos at each stage, which made me think of the timelapse! Can’t wait to see your post 🙂
