One of the biggest (if not THE BIGGEST) perks of my job is seeing things come to life. I feel like a lot of people have those perks- scientists, artists, builders... their ideas at some point turn into something tangible.
It's no wonder the Disney creators assigned names to all of their little sketches. They made teapots, candelabras, rugs, and clocks come to life! It's why the anticipation of Disney World is so exciting for kids- because the Mrs. Potts that they've seen on paper and a TV screen for so many years--? You get to see her, shake her hand and even take pictures with her!!!
So when I get an idea in my head I sketch it out on paper, pass the sketch along to the builder or fabricator, and wait... hoping that it will come to life so I can experience my grown-up Disney World moment.
Months went by as the house continued to evolve... plumbing, tile, wallpaper...
I realize that it's easy to love seeing things come to life when you miss all the work in between! So props to all of you who can build, fabricate and construct. I have no idea how you do it but I continue to be amazed... And I'm thankful for people like you. In this case, a special thanks to Mike for making my Disney dreams come true!
