The Green Ember | Book Review

Let’s start where ancient wisdom tells us not to and judge this book by its cover. If I didn’t know anything about S.D. Smith‘s first children’s novel or about Story Warren Books, the cover would’ve been enough to convince me to give it a chance. Zach Franzen‘s art is warm and crisp, inviting viewers to explore the world of these rabbits with swords. Okay, so only one rabbit has a sword on the cover. Not the point. The cover art is superb! That’s the point. Young ones will enjoy finding more of Franzen’s art throughout the book as well.

Kramer Chapel Instruction Manual

I’ve uploaded a PDF of my Kramer Chapel instruction manual (click the link below) so that all ya’ll LEGO/Concordia Theological Seminary/architecture enthusiasts can build your very own custom churchly office decor. One thing though, you’re on your own when it comes to acquiring the LEGO bricks necessary for this build. When I was selling these kits I purchased bricks from both lego.com’s Pick a Brick store and bricklink.com. Ebay is also a useful resource. I recommend buying only new bricks, you know, ’cause no one wants a dirty and dingy desktop Kramer Chapel made from used pieces. But, of course, it’s your call. Hey, you might even already have all the pieces necessary. So download the manual and get busy constructing your very own Eero Saarinen masterpiece.  I hope you have as much fun building your Kramer Chapel as I had designing it. 🙂 Kramer Chapel Instruction Manual
