Team Sammy - LEGO Bedroom

After Make-A-Wish Arizona called last September and asked me to help with their wish request for a LEGO room I cried with snot and all.
Some of that was hormones.
But most of it was fueled by the fact that I was snuggling my healthy, happy three-month-old baby and I couldn't imagine the heartache that parents must endure when their child doesn't get to be healthy.

And of course I said yes.

We finished the room last Saturday.
For Sammy.
An eight-year-old who has shown cancer who's boss.

Months ago I started plotting and counting LEGOS for his custom name art.

The double-sided Emmet pillow was stitched last week.

And the mural.
The mural.
That grew continuously from Wednesday night up until 45 minutes before the reveal on Saturday.

And all thanks to help from my family and volunteers from Make-A-Wish Arizona...who didn't get enough wish making in during their 8-5 shifts so they came to paint with me in the evenings.

Everything is awesome.
Everything is cool when you're part of a team.
Everything is awesome,
When you're living out a dream.


I couldn't be more grateful to have been a part of this team.
Team Sammy.

Here are a few more photos from the reveal and one of the news clips. The custom built in bed/dresser/desk combo was done by Thunderbird Custom Design and I can't even explain how fantastic it is. Perfect finish. Soft close everything. Soft close!
