I love all the traditional trappings of Christmas but this year I thought it would be fun to explore the darker side of the season.

Think the Nightmare Before Christmas, Krampus, a yule tide Junker Jane, possessed toys under the tree.

This is not an anti-Christmas swap. It's just meant to be a fun, creative outlet where we can do some ghoulish dark crafting!

I figured I'd throw this out there.  I'm not really into SUPER creepy stuff.  I like strange/weird with a holiday twist.  I am NOT interested in traditional Christmas.  I like off-beat, random, snarky, mildly creepy/suggestive, and definitely character mash-ups. But, super scary/horror Christmas is too much the other way. Like...I'm not into horror/bloody.

I just couldn't tell from the description how "dark" the concept is for this swap.  I'd consider myself a "light dark"...so "gray"!  I don't hate on a wide-open Q, but this one leaves a lot [for me] to interpret.

Is anyone else maybe inspired by this, or thinking along the same lines?  If not, no worries, and I'll wait to see if something else opens up.  Some of the fun in crafting and really being inspired by what you are making and not every swap is for every person.  The fun is in finding a good fit, yeah?!
