Excellent idea! I would like to do this too. Reminds me of my "Creativitiy
Class". The instructor loved to bring in strange objects that were
unfamiliar to us and have us draw the object being used. I had forgotten all
about that - I'm going to have to dig in the garage and see if I can come up
with something strange. :-)
