i find that jar-of-stuff-to-make-other-stuff quite compelling.

I know--it's like a big, bright jar of toys, isn't it? And I don't think I would make anything from it; I think I'd just put it on my desk to be inspirational and look awesome.

Ooh, I could make my own jar-of-stuff, couldn't I?

cosmo has a small tin with various items in it: a part of a zipper, some tiny balls we found (probably from an air gun) a snap, a flat, plastic yellow flower, etc. we call it "the little things" and he enjoys just spreading them out now and then, and looking at them, playing with them, arranging them. then we put it back. when we find small random junk, on a walk or something, we stick it in with the little things. that jar reminds me of a glorified version of that.

That is an AWESOME idea! We are absolutely going to start our own jars of little things tomorrow.

I'm most excited about starting my OWN jar.
