cardboard box birthday party

This is one of the most unique and fun ideas I have seen for a birthday party from Hello Lucky. It is really perfect too, as we all know one of the favorite things toddlers like to do is play in empty cardboard boxes. The mom got the inspiration for this party when she saw her twin boys playing in a Huggies box. I thought about this mom being inspired when next coming across this great quote via Marvelous Kiddo.

“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.”
