Scavenger Hunt Journal

For this swap you will need a journal or note book of some kind with sturdy paper. At least 50 pages. Something you will be able to turn the pages into pockets as needed. To make the pocket pages you can simply cut one page in half and glue or tape 3 sides to a second page and have a pocket . You can also use paper clips as needed. Now the reason for these pockets will be to have some place to store the items you are going to be hunting for. These things are going to be small and mostly flat items. These treasures that you will be finding or will be something you already have in your art stash. This swap should cost you only for the journal and postage. You will have one item to find daily. Also you will have to write a bit about where you found your item and why you picked it. You will have 1 partner for this swap. Feel free to add any extras you want to with your items. We all love extras : ) also please decorate the journal a little. Make it pretty for your partner.

You will have all of October to work on this journal. so have fun with it.

The first page of the journal should be a short bio page. Number and label the pages. No need to follow the list in the order I have it BUT you must have all items on the list in it.

Hi, On the ones where you need to print out pictures, can these be pictures we have found in a magazine or book also? I don't have access to a printer. Also, could I make this as an envelope journal, rather than making pockets in a journal? I think that would be fun.

LunaMoody 08/25/2011 #

Yes these can be pictures you found in a book or magazine. And sure you can make a envelope journal.

So scared to be flakes on :// but I will join in hopes I get a good journal in return as I will be sending out. Great idea I just hope all who join keep their word. Even get confirmation on sending so you have proof just a little piece of advice :)) my last 2 BIG swaps I got one really late and the other flaked :// . But I will have so much fun doing this :)

Wingy 08/26/2011 #

i just joined this swap...printed out the list...and my mind is already racing to see what items i think of ;)

TraySeeH 08/26/2011 #

I would love to join, but the last two journal swaps I joined, I got flaked on. So very hesitant. Will keep watching though.

lttleetoile 08/28/2011 #

I'm a little nervous because I can't do at least one of the prompts... I don't have moon, stars, and sun stamps. If it's ok with my partner, can I do outline print-outs?

LunaMoody 08/29/2011 #


print out images will be fine but they must be black and white only!!! That way at least they are like stamped images : )

lttleetoile 08/30/2011 #

Great, I will watch until it gets closer, then join!

Wingy 09/ 2/2011 #

YIKES...the one that i am having trouble with is this one:::: Day 6 - list of 10 different things that happened on the day you were born.... any suggestions??? thanks

LunaMoody 09/ 2/2011 #

Wingy that's a easy one google what happened in the world on the day of your birth.

HannahsMommy07 09/ 6/2011 #

I want to make sure I do this right ... I make the JOURNAL for my partner and fill it with all these things right???

LunaMoody 09/ 6/2011 #


Yes that is exactly what you do : )

LunaMoody 09/ 6/2011 #

You will probably notice the swap page looks changed. No worries though I only made the list a little easier to read. I didn't change anything about the swap.

morgainegeiser 09/ 7/2011 #

I am a little hesitant too, as I have been flaked on the last two journal swaps and then had a partner I sent to out of the country both times, cost me some bucks. Going to try one last time and hope for the best.

tex82 09/ 9/2011 #

This will be super fun!

Thank god can be printed "stamps" for 6 different stamped images of moon, stars, suns I dont' have any!

siouxx05 09/10/2011 #

As this is international, things like leaves and flowers cant be sent.. Would pics be ok for that bit, or do you have another suggestion?

tex82 09/10/2011 #

of course can be send. I already send leaves to Romenia. And was just inside the envelope. Now will gonna be inside a envelope inside a book. Just don't send drug leaves.

HannahsMommy07 09/13/2011 #

I have already been working on mine ... just anxiously (oh I need better patience0 waiting on a partner!!!!

Wingy 09/13/2011 #

i still can NOT find 10 things that happened the day i was born..i found a few..but NOT 10...i have enjoyed making this journal.. its fun so far ;)

LunaMoody 09/15/2011 #

Wingy it doesn't have to be major things that happened. Example name a famous person born the same day. Or something from the news that day

cazmae55 09/19/2011 #

I would like to join this and realise time is fast running out for sign up. My concern is for the feathers section as over here in New Zealand feathers real feathers are a no no and will be seized by our customs. Let me know soon pls. Cazmae55

LunaMoody 09/20/2011 #

cazmae55 you can use fake feathers

LunaMoody 09/20/2011 #

I added 1 extra day to sign up just to give everyone who is interested a chance to join

cynaemon 09/21/2011 #

Okay, I have signed up. I hope I can find all of this stuff. Some of it looked kind of hard.

Wingy 10/ 3/2011 #

Almost done.. I almost want to keep it for myself lol lol lol this has been FUN!!!

ShellyLynn816 10/11/2011 #

I love this idea, wish I would have seen it in time to sign up! Just a note on the sending leaves and such out of the country it is illegal because of bugs and such that can travel on real leaves. I would avoid it so you don't cause harm to the environment. Especially with things like ash trees...

Wingy 10/14/2011 #

OMG i am going to the postoffice today to mail mine out to my buddy ( morgainegeiser ) ....i hope she likes what i put together..

tex82 10/27/2011 #

to help people to find their birthday facts and to see how (in)significant we are http://www.7billionandme.org

LunaMoody 10/31/2011 #

You don't have to send real leaves. Fake ones are ok as long as they look as real as possible

Wingy 12/ 3/2011 #

I never recvd the one coming to me

tex82 02/27/2012 #

Resent today. It seems my first one get lost.
