I’ve made up for not being able to come up with an annual Winter Village MOC or a store display this year, by making a Christmas Party MOC instead. You can check it out over on Flickr.
Also on Flickr is a little story in the form of a comic strip, which took quite a while to put together. You can have a look, but be warned that it uses trademark SilentMode “humour” – so it may not be to your liking.
(To provoke you, here are the pages.)
