The Build: January 2018

New Year, New Theme

Grace, Kirsten, both

If you stopped by yesterday Melody told you we were working on the very first build of the new year.
Some of our previous builds were pretty elaborate, but we thought to start with something simple.
But made the new theme really obvious! (giggles)
Are you ready to see it?
Ta da!
So if you haven't guessed, the theme for this year is cars or vehicles. 
Each month we'll have a different mode of transportation incorporated in the design. Not this big though, you may have to search for it.
Of course, we also have to represent something for the month in the design. It's snowing today, so we went with a snowman and the husky pup.
And January is Melody's birthday month so the top is purple for her. 
Can you see who is in the car with Andrea and Olivia? Here's a closer look.
That's our January build. We hope you like it.
Hey, Kirsten, do you know what else happens in January?
Well, it's National Tea Month.
True, but today is National Trivia Day. 
This is a bit of information I'm sure Steampunk Addie knows...actress Nichelle Nichols was going to leave Star Trek after season one, but a conversation with Martin Luther King Jr. convinced her to stay.
That's awesome! I'm glad she did she's my favorite from the original series.

Hope you are staying cozy today no matter where you are!

Warm wishes!
