    We all have things that keep us up at night, worries, fears, anxiety! Now is the time to put those things to rest in our art! I'm asking all of you to step inside our crazy heads and make something out of what scares us. Can be anything from the dark (menacing thing it is)to clowns(sinister under that makeup!), from sharks(Jaws, hello?!) to bunnies (cute and fluffy? I don't think so!)...show us what you find creepy in your own medium. NEWBIES WELCOME!!

    All mediums welcome, all member types welcome!!

    US residents please send a self addressed postage paid envelope with username and swap name on it.

    International residents, send a self addressed envelope with your username and swap name on it, I will pay whatever postage is needed.

    Please send in cards that you - yourself - would be happy to receive. If you feel you cannot make the due date, let me know. No hurried cards here!!

    I'm afraid to see what you guys come up with!!

    I'd join, but I am afraid of swaps. I think it's called Swapaphobia.

    I went into Wikipedia to find the proper names for all my fears - like felinofopia is really "Ailurophobia". Where did THAT come from?????

    Anyway, the Wikipedia "List of Phobias" is so HUGE, it gave me phobiophobia.

    PS. Elena,
    GREAT Clown. Is he going into the Swap, or staying home to terrorize you?

    I wonder if they list a fear of blood-sucking insects, or a terror of poison ivy, in any official lists?...

    They list Trypanophobia as a fear of needles drawing blood and/or injections and Entomophobia as fear of insects, so Trypanoentomophobia should be close.

    My girlfriend is a Traveling Vampire (Red Cross Blood Collection) and she says she has radiophobia. Maybe that is why she watches so much TV?

    Say, I think the idea of getting out our phobias was to help get RID OF THEM, not give us nightmares. Good luck Elena!!

    God knows that clown gave me nightmares, lol. Yeah, speaking of weird phobias and their names...what about fear of big fish, whether shark or not...or deep water you can't see through? Yeah, I am just that strange! It'll be interesting to see what odd phobias some of the players have.

    Some of things that REALLY terrorize, are not even phobias.
    For example, what about a fear of Cancer? That is NOT an unfounded, irrational fear. That is very, very real.

    Oh, my Cards went postal this morning. Let me know when they invade your nightmares. Do you have a locked box to store them in??? Better get one

    OriginalYouth, are you wanting to join or just adding a bit of humor, lol. Lord knows with all this fear we need it!
    VickiZ - I will keep my eye out for your lil travelling nightmares! And yes, I have a cold dark LOCKED place to keep them until I am ready - if I ever will be - to divvy them up.
