I was taking some bottles and cans out to my in-law’s garage for recycling when I saw a bunch of tall cardboard boxes to be discarded. In a creative burst I was downstairs with a box cutter, tape and markers starting to build a castle for my nieces and nephews. Two hours and a few beers later, my father-in-law, brother-in-law and I had created this very unique surprise for the kids. These moments are what fuel my creative fire and I hope to connect with that spark more often this year.
