My 3D Lego Gallery
I have made 3D legos as a hobby for a long while now, and I have never really taken it seriously until recently when I found out that people were interested in the stuff that I was making. I thus took it upon myself to make sure that I would build not just more 3D Lego stuff, but I would also ensure that people pay actually to see them. It is quite a good venture, and so far, I can not complain from all the revenue that I have been getting from this.
It is truly inspiring work and especially to get to see kids being happy at the kind of things that I can do with the legos is just brilliant. To put a smile on a child’s life and to see how changed they are after seeing what I can build is just beyond words for me and I always feel honored when I have them in my gallery. I also get to give them words of encouragement and tell them that you can be anything that you want to be if you just set your mind to it. If someone told me that I would be making a fortune out of this hobby, I would have laughed at them, but now it is true.
It usually takes a lot of work to put together the 3D legos, but I finally do it, and since it requires perfection, I have to spend a lot of time on a single piece. On an average day, I might get actually to build two legos but this mostly also depends on the size of the thing that I am making. Whether it is a house, a pet, vehicle, boat, a person or even a lego train, it just depends on how big the thing is going to be and that determined how much time I will put into it.
If am building something big like maybe a life size person, then that might take a day to complete. But despite all the time that I put into making this stuff, it’s just amazing to see the income that I generate. The smile that I get to put on people’s faces is also quite encouraging, and I couldn’t ask for more. All these stuff that I build in this store of mine is just amazing, and a lot of people don’t know that this all started out as a hobby. Now I can build anything that I want and make something that is not just brilliant, but it is also remarkable.
When I took all my savings and invested in this, my wife thought that I had gone mad, and I probably would have ended up in a mental institution if I hadn’t made the first lego of her. I bet that got me off the hook, and she let me continue with what I wanted to do. I don’t think that I would have just let her off the hook if she had made a Lego of me, okay maybe if it was the same size as the Statue of Liberty, then and only then would I have excused her.
I started out with a few pieces and gradually worked my way to more and by the end of the first year, I was getting frequent visitors, and that is when my wife thought about people paying to see this stuff.
I was at first skeptical as I just wanted to show people my marvels but when my wife instead that I do as she had said, I had no choice. She can be a lot persuasive with her meatloaf, and I am one meatloaf addict. She suggested we start at $5 and see what the response would be and fair enough, people were still coming to see the legos. Especially the Lego trains, a lot of people love this, and I made sure that each week I would make a new one at least once.
I draw inspiration from a lot of things to make my 3D legos, but mostly it’s about the things that we love the most. I have found a lot of joy, as well as a good paycheck to myself at the end of every week and I just can’t think of anything else that I’d rather do.
