I am leaving ReBrick, as my time here has been a maternity cover contract. Thursday the 31st of July is my last day. So I wanted to write a proper goodbye to all you amazing people!

Man, has it been wonderful to work with all you guys. Seriously. You are the best. First of all, your bookmarking is amazing. You find all the coolest stuff. And I love the tone on ReBrick. You all respect each other and the builds you bookmark. That’s just cool! I’ve had the time of my life hanging with you ReBrickers.

I was hanging out with Shakespeare the other day, and he told me: “To build or not to build… That is the question” (I might be paraphrasing).

Anyway, no offense to the old bard – but I think he’s wrong. No question about it… Keep building. And bookmarking. And generally making awesome LEGO creations!

As the sun sets slowly in the west I bid you a fine farewell!
