The Pocket Scavenger app encourages you to use your phone or tablet to actually interact more with the world around you. After completing a scavenge you can upload it to the map and see what scavenges are going on nearby, and share your finds through Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr before embarking on a new hunt.



Now featuring 16 new prompts and four different covers to choose from, Wreck This Journal encourages you to engage in "destructive" acts—poking holes in the page, making an ugly drawing, painting pages with coffee, and more—in order to engage more fully in the creative process.

Keri Smith's books will inspire you to create, destroy, explore, beautify, and make a mess. Color outside the lines. Celebrate mistakes. Look at the world in a new way.
