It's a new year. Time to de-stash and re-stash. But this is no ordinary de-stash swap. This is a scavenger hunt.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Find at least ten items from the list below already in your stash. You are not to go shopping for this one; it's all about purging your crap for the new year (and, of course, getting someone else's crap in return, because we all know the universal truth that someone else's crap is always more interesting).

Please have fun with this and leave it loose. Let your partner decide how to interpret the definitions. It's just a fun way to paw through all your crap, maybe pet some of your favorite things, and let go of a little of last year's crap to make room for new crap.


  • Something sparkly / shiny / blingy
  • Something paper
  • Something squishy
  • Something rubbery
  • Something hard
  • Something soft
  • Something you can tie in knots
  • Something that is an unusual color
  • Something written
  • Something photographic
  • Something from a toy or game
  • Something you can sew
  • A tool of some kind
  • Something you made
  • Something you never finished
  • Something metal
  • A container of some kind
  • Something that has nothing to do with crafting
  • Something older than you are
  • Something altered
  • Something you have to alter
  • Something postal
  • Something silly
  • Sender's choice (only 1 of the 10 can be this, please)

Now that is a good long list, so it should be easy to find these things if you poke around a little!

How you send it is up to you, but since this could be a largish package, I'm going to discriminate and make this US only. (Sorry, international crapsisters!)

Please include some kind of note or label indicating which item is which on the scavenger list.

So, to recap: 10 items, from your stash, to 1 partner, with a note or label, US only.

New year, new crap!
