Okay so we have heard of the Enchanted forest swap we had recently, so I was playing with the idea of ' The Dark forest' swap.
I'm playing around with the idea in my head at the moment and thinking along the lines of
Trolls, witches, ravens, spiders, giants, goblins, old houses, wolves- werewolves.
can you think of others, would love to hear ideas!
thinking of hosting this a bit down the track, like late august, early September.
Who's  willing to come and play in the dark forest???

You have too many good swap ideas!  It's not fair, we only have 5 swap slots!  I'd be up for this one, if I have a space!

MEEEE! haha Cheesy
And I have to agree, you have so many fun & wonderful swap ideas that I keep having to remind myself that we are only allowed 5!  Cheesy

I always remember being so scared as a kid watching Wizard of Oz when they were in the forest with the spooks and oh yes, with the apple tossing trees!  But then again I also got spooked with Fraggle Rock with the "Deep deep, dark dark, deep, dark woods!"  Cheesy And now I read S. King for bed time. Roll Eyes

Yes!  Please!!! 
I LOVE the dark/twisted/spooky themes!  Especially if they aren't always meant to be portrayed that way!

I am on the fence, only because I may have to be in the states for a few weeks soon.  I should know more about that in the next week or two... Grin

Not sure what's going on...I just know I was never planning on hosting this swap.  I have another swap I'm going to open some time this year...but it's not like this swap at all.  I may have said something in jest, that got interpreted as serious...that happens some time...but I'm not into orging this swap, so no harm done as far as me Grin

EDIT:  Still not clear about what happened, but I want to make it very clear, I would never discourage ANYONE from running a swap that they proposed.  The idea that anyone would use my name to discourage a new swap orging has been frelling with my brain all day.  So....just wanted to be perfectly clear who ever used my name to discourage  Alittlemusthave from orging did not have my blessing to do so

What were you thinking for the items themselves? Like, one large, a medium and small, etc. This reminds me of the movie Legend. It is so much a dark enchanted forest. The evil things, all covered in glitter. Teehee. I'm not a huge glitter fan, but I think in this case, (and heavily glued down) it would work. Grin

Please host this! Would new swappers be allowed? Please host this even if they're not, because the gallery would rock.
