I had some fun with Emmet this month, finding new places to stash him for my Instagram series ‘The Continuing Adventures of Emmet’. My awesome husband did some animation magic on one of my builds and I built an entire set (Family House #31012, 2013) from online instructions. It was extra fun to try and figure out how to replace pieces that I didn’t have in my own collection.

I re-created my first Lego Set (#230 Hairdressing Salon, 1978)…and added Emmet. I didn’t get much Lego as a kid as it was considered a ‘boy toy’ back then. I think I got this one because the theme of hairdressing salon was one of Lego’s first attempts at marketing to girls. It worked!

Below is me in my happy place. Every weekend, I like/need to spend some time touching and creating with my brick friends.
The Vollkswagen T1 Camper van (set #10220, 2011) is one of the hardest builds I’ve done. Really fiddly. This was my second time at building and Emmet joined the party.
I have a thing for building toilets. Who knew? Here’s Emmet sitting on the toilet from Lego Friends (set #41038 Jungle Rescue, 2014).
Some fun with the kid displaying the First Order Special Tie Fighter (set #75101, 2016)
And a cool MOC by my son!
