These crayons really didn't lend themselves well to this little construction project - the engineering properties of balancing 'round on round' quite naturally was a bit tricky! ;) Adaptation and a couple of trial and error attempts eventually yielded this structure. The spirit of innovation relies on experimentation and opportunities to fail as a vehicle for success.

Whenever there are a couple of ideas floating around in my head, such a visual and the ensuing process are valued and encouraging. Setting up failure as the 'end' prevents learning and the opportunity to create in a realistic environment. Let's keep building! Naples, FL


  1. Very creative and fun shot! And very well done as well!

  2. Now you are ready for a log cabin! This is fun - and a way to build on ideas.
