Everyone has participated in a scavenger Hunt at some point in their life. This swap is based on the book The Pocket Scavenger by Keri Smith. Every 2 weeks, we will do a new part of the swap.

Each part, you will find something and then alter it. Every part of the swap, the item(s) and alteration(s) will change.

You will take the item(s), do the alteration(s), send it to your partner with a note with where you found the hunted item(s), your ID and swap name.

For this swap, the item to find is: the number 5 and the alteration to do is: add something shiny.

These directions are very open, so use your imagination. Anything goes!

I had someone ask before what I meant by one of the alterations, and this is my answer to anyone who has the same question...

This is seriously up to you! That is what is so interesting in this series - to see how others interpret the item AND the alteration!

To take it out of the book I have based this series on (Pocket Scavenger by Keri Smith), "These alterations will allow you to create something entirely new... The alterations are where your genius will come in. Each alteratio will be interpreted differently by each person. There is no right or wrong or good or bad in terms of how the alteration is performed. You might love the results; you might find them interesting. That is part of the fun - not knowing what will occur."

Does it have to be the NUMBER 5 or can it also be 5 dots or birds or 5 whatevers

I just went to Amazon to look up The Pocket Scavenger and ended up ordering 3 of her books...wow...sounds like a good way to spend the winter!! I'm signing up for this swap right now, too!
