So, recently, I have gotten addicted to, which is basically a place where you can sign up with other people from across the interwebs, to swap cool things. So far, I’ve swapped ribbons and embellishments and papergoods and tons of ephemera-type stuff. It’s really cool, and I’ve gotten to communicate with some really cool people–some from right up the road near Charlotte, NC, and some from as far away as Austrailia.

Now, I’m participating in a digital swap, which includes a photo scavenger hunt. I thought I’d host it here!

1. My Pet. This is my favorite picture of Sake, my cat. He likes having his belly rubbed, and this picture just cracks me up.

2. Something in my favorite color. Blue is my favorite color, but I don’t have a lot of pictures of blue things. But here is a picture of the scoreboard from Cameron Indoor Stadium, home of the Duke Blue Devils. This is from when the women’s basketball team beat Carolina at home to cap the regular season and remain undefeated.

3. Clothing I regret buying. I actually don’t have any pictures of this. I rarely buy clothing I regret. And when I do, I usually return it, or sell/donate/give it away to friends. I don’t let it stick around too long.

4. Something that represents freedom to me. I love this picture, and I can’t think of anything more free than hiking alone in such beautiful country.

5. Me or someone I knew dressed up for Halloween. I have two hilarious pictures for this and I couldn’t decide which to use, and since I didn’t have a picture for #3, I figured I’d post them both. The first is of my friends MS and BJ, who hosted the party where this was taken, and made the perfect Mario and Luigi, SUPER MARIO BROTHERS!!! The other is of one of my former RAs, CQ, who is dressed up as a “One Night Stand”–my favorite costume ever.

6. An activity I enjoy doing. I love doing decoupage and other crafts. These are the Christmas ornaments I made this past year, using those skills.

7. Something circular. This is the “Magic Swings” ride at the old Pavilion Amusement Park in Myrtle Beach. I used to go to this park as a kid all the time, and I took this picture a few weeks before it closed, when my parents, brother, and I went back for one last hurrah.

8. Something that will make me laugh. I love this sign. It’s actually still up here in Durham, and I laugh and say “God Bless the South” every time I drive past it.

9. The weather today.

10. Me. This is my all-time favorite baby picture of me. I just love it, and I still have that bunny. His name is BunBun. And I don’t think I’ve changed all that much. You can definitely tell this is me when you see the picture.

Hope you enjoyed these pictures, and to my Swap-bot buddies, welcome!
