In 2006 I started dating E.J. Bocan III, a guy obsessed with LEGO® bricks. In 2008 he gave me an enormous engagement ring (pictured above) — I said yes! In 2009 we had a tasteful LEGO® themed wedding and I started my business, AbbieDabbles. Growing my business has been an incredible journey. I had always considered myself a “crafter”. I like to sew, make candles, wood burn, embroider, bake, etc. etc. etc. After I married E.J. I was surrounded by LEGO®, literally. The bricks became a new “craft medium”. I named my business AbbieDabbles. because I *dabble* in many mediums. After a few years of dabbling my focus became creating with LEGO®. Being able to utilize my own creativity, be my own boss, travel the U.S., and ship my items all over the world has been extraordinarily rewarding. The LEGO® fan community is incredibly supportive and I have made more new friends than I can count. I hope you enjoy my products, and if you ever make it to a convention we can make a real-world connection. I <3 my job!
