Its so simple that it doesnt really need instructions. Ill add some commentary just for fun!
Start with a $2 defunct vintage toaster from local thrift store.
Stare at it questioningly...4 seconds
Walk to office...5 seconds
Grab magnetic clip from desk...3 seconds
Rummage through cards...10 seconds
Attach clip to card...2 seconds
Walk back to toaster...5 seconds
Stick magnetic clip to toaster...1 second
TOTAL TIME...30 seconds
Okay, it might have actually happened in the span of 2 minutes or so, but you get the picture, right? Easy peasy!!
Prop it in the sunlight for a sunshiny photo op!

It's so simple that it doesn't really need instructions. I'll add some commentary just for fun!

This is seriously the easiest project ever. It's so easy that I was hesitant to even post it on JMS because of all the creative and work-intensive projects that people do here. Then I remembered that we are all part of one supportive junking family. I knew you guys would appreciate the project simply because it involves junk.

While this project is über simple, I just realized that the message displayed is actually quite powerful. It only has two words..."question everything"... but that phrase means a lot. I view questioning as the key to critical thinking and self awareness. Displaying this simple quote on this crazy little toaster will be a great reminder to continually keep an open mind to new ideas and personal growth.


Who knew junking could be so inspiring?! JMS members know!
