I think it's especially hard when you give handmade gifts to someone who doesn't craft themselves.  Most of the time they just can't understand the time and effort you put into it for them, and how much more it sucks if they don't enjoy it.  Hopefully your fun project will help you out of that!  Smiley

I hate when handmade gifts aren't received well =/ I'm about to test that again with the two projects I just started and finished today lol. Definitely a last minute decision but my bf asked me to make these for his brother's wedding (tomorrow!). He's giving a best man speech and parts of it refer to legos - his brother is a huge lego nerd - so I thought it would be hilarious to gift his brother an oversized lego at the end of the speech. I put the scissors in the picture so you can get an idea of the size of this thing lol.

Also to accompany the giant lego piece, I made this sweet lego portrait for the couple. Done in acrylic paint, watercolors and pen. Based off images found online.

I love Lego, spent countless hours building stuff with my brothers and our dad. The oversized piece is cute, but the painting is amazing, I'm sure it will be well recieved Smiley

I'm not a lego nerd at all, but I'd love that picture if I was getting married!
