Natural Things Swap. It was loads of fun and I'm looking forward to another one in the future.
In an effort to share some of the fun with everyone, I've taken photos of some of the objects exchanged and created a quiz in which you try to identify the objects.
Every person who attempts the quiz (and yes, swappers are allowed to enter), is entered to win the prize (more on that in a second). Each object you correctly identify will earn you an additional prize entry. There are 8 objects to identify, so if you can identify them all correctly, your name will be in the prize drawing 9 times.
The quiz will be open for one week. Next Friday I will reveal the identity of the objects, so make sure you check back in then.
