Xmas 12 of '17

Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi?
Nefarious Gingerbread Men, Snow Wolf or Rosy Cheeked all sound good. In Whipped Soap, Pumpkin Butter or Hair Oil all sound good to me! Any of the available Winter update in candles works, too.


Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened?
Paintbox, any of the Winter edition in bar soap or wax melts. I don't have a burner, but they smell nice just placed around the house, too.

Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink?
CP isn't my thing.

Do you have feelings about fruitcake? We're talking whiskey soaked homemade fruitcake, not a brick in a festive tin.
We like fruitcake so much in our house, we make our own

Any strong nail polish and/or makeup preferences?
I love super sparkly nail polish. Multichromes, foils and glass flecks are my favorites. I don't really use any other makeups.

Pomanders?
I love making these, they make the house smell super Christmas-y

Savor?
This store was my introduction to whipped soap, and I love them! Honey Love Dust is a favorite, and I'm interested in trying Hot Coffee, and Jade

Perfectly Posh?
The BFF face polish or Don't Be Bitter Baby hand creme (they have good hand creme)

Favorite animals?
I like them all, but especially cats, bats, octopi

Weird question, but it's on my mind: Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff?
Not a strong preference, they're all good. My only note would be that we're not super snackers, so food stuffs as accents (particularly chocolate and coffee) are super welcome, but not necessarily as the main component.

Would you be interested in one of the Colorpop pallets? Anything else from Colourpop?
I don't really wear makeup except nail polish

Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3?
We like tradional (as in medieval/Renaissance) music, Irish carols, or 30's through the 50's. Bing Crosby, Burl Ives, that sort of thing is welcome, too. MP3 as we don;t have any way to play CDs atm

Do you like toffee or fudge?
Love 'em both, especially homemade


Are you interested in anything from my etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com...winklentwilight(bags, stuffies, hats, fingerless mitts, lefse cozies...)

Love the bags! (Well, I like the mitts, too, but I usually make my own). The drawstring bags are particularly good. Cats, bats, octopus fabrics are all gorgeous

How do you feel about amigurumi (little crochet stuffies...animals, characters, ornaments, etc.)?
I think they are adorable

If I were to crochet you something wearable, do you have any preferences? Do you like hats, scarves, gloves, other? And would you prefer something fun and whimsical (e.g. fox face hat or owl mittens), something delicate and pretty (e.g. lacy wraps or scalloped boot cuffs), or just something like a basic, no frills beanie or cowl? Do you have a Ravelry account and a list of favorite patterns?
Lacy things or slippers. I never wear mittens or scarves.
What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics?

Primarily coffee, I love dark roasts, single origins when I can get them (particularly African/Indonesians, please no Costa Rica). Flavored coffees are okay, too, particularly holiday flavors. We don;t have a grinder, so ground for a home espresso machine, if you can...but we can sneak grind it at the grocery store if necessary.
I like tea, but practically never drink it.
Cocoas and ciders are great!

What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc?

Holiday scented candles are good, as are decorated unscented candles

Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen?

Definitely! Middle Eastern and Asian spice blends particularly

What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for?

That's a hard one. I bought an old school sewing machine (complete with table!) awhile back, and I haven't used it because I don't have anything for it...but that's because it's all in storage. I was starting to get into sewing when my other machine broke. But sewing supplies/accessories/books would be welcome. Nothing really "new" in my life, aside from that.

We do a lot of baking and holiday good ridiculousness around here...house specialties include lebkuchen (flourless, they're mostly nuts, spices, candied fruit), marzipan, butter caramels (flavored or plain), shortbread crisps, and savory cheese shortbread. Any of these sound appealing?
I confess I'm not a huge fan of lebkuchen, but the rest of the house is so it will be appreciatedly consumed by someone if it's in the box. The only marzipan I'm familiar with is the plastic-y commercial stuff that give s me a headache. I'm down with trying homemade if it's different (like homemade fruitcake vs commercial). The rest is all an unqualified yes!

What are your top places to get a gift card from?

Ummmm...anyplace that sells yarn. Lab or Post, Sock Dreams, etsy, HoG...ebook retailers, like Kobo.

Which holiday symbols/themes do you like the best (or least)? Such as Santas, snowflakes, reindeer, etc.
We like Country (rustic) Christmas, Victorian and homemade (I think that was covered in the ?aire. Not so fond of the very plastic and mass produced looking items.

Do you like puzzles?
I don't really have the patience for puzzles. Plus I'm pretty sure the cats would disappear/eat some of the pieces, or our husky would sweep it off the table with his big, fluffy tail.

Do you have a strong preference for numbered packages vs randomly picking with maybe a few hints along the way?
Whatever makes my partner happy.

Are you jonesing for any particular BPAL right now? Anything you are just dying to try, even just a sniffie?
Ummm....I miss some of my bottles in storage, but aside from that, no (sorry, am I a broken record yet?)

How do you feel about the following flavors/ingredients:
Coconut? It depends. I love coconut in thai food, and I have coconut flakes in my chia pudding...I really enjoy coconut popsicles and coconut cream pie. I would probably enjoy the coconut chips I see everywhere. But I loathe macaroons and most baked other baked goods with coconut.
Mint? Again, it depends. I really like mint when I like it...but I don't always like it. It's partially a mood thing
Lavender? I like lavender plants, and I enjoy it as an accent scent (or flavor), but it quickly becomes overwhelming.
Rosewater? Oh, yes
Cardamom? Please!
Candied citrus peel/marmalade? I candy my own citrus peel, and we don;t really eat much jam/jelly/marmalade, but I'd love a good curd.
Anything to absolutely avoid? Meat and meat by-products

Would you like anything crafted for the storage or transport of the BPAL? (Travel imp containers, boxes for 5mls, bottle cozy, etc.)
Probably not a cozy - I have mostly imps and rollerballs (less likely to spill). But a good imp container would be nice. Something to keep them upright so they don't leak
If so, do you prefer them to be plain or decorated? Either or!
If decorated, are there any motifs or art that you'd particularly like? Nightmare before Christmas, Victorian gothic, steampunk, celestial

*A note on my wishlists - there are some items on my wishlists that are up there as placeholders and inspiration for me (like Pinterest, but for etailers) so I know there's some sold/no longer available items.

12 Days of Christmas 2017

Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi?
Not really familiar with their products, but Bathing Dust in Cozy Pumpkin does look pretty spectacular. Maybe a soft bubbling scrub in Honeysuckle Lemon Curd? Butterbombs in Sleepy Time?

Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened?
Bath Streusel in Figs in Honey, The Queen is Dead, or Fairytale. Scrub in Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground or Perdita.

Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink?
Not familiar with them, but maybe a scrub in Ginger Crème Brûlée or Winchester House Kitchen?

(The general theme from above: I prefer scrubs and bath soaks. Not really into soap or scented lotions.)

Do you have any feelings about fruitcake?
Can't say I have enjoyed it in the past, but I have never had any homemade. So I'd be up for sampling, as long as it could be made without raisins or dates.

Any strong nail polish and or makeup preferences?
Nail polish should be at least 3 Free (no DBP, Formaldehyde, or Toluene). Favorite finishes are matte, flakie, and duochrome. Not into metallic/foil.
I have sensitive skin, I don't really wear much makeup, and I am really picky about what I do use, so probably best to avoid that. (That being said, I love Lush's tinted lip balms, mascara, and eyeliner, and Benefit's cheek & lip stains)

How do you feel about pomanders?
Really love them actually! Clove and citrus is the smell of the holidays to me.

How do you feel about savor soaps?
Don't know this brand, but see general product type preferences above.

Or Perfectly Posh?
Not familiar with this one either.

Favorite animals?
I am a lover of animals in general, but especially foxes, cats, sugar gliders, armadillos, bison, and river otters. Also, I'm a big fan of cryptids...kitsune, griffins, jackalope, phoenix, etc.

Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff?
No real preference regarding consumable or not, but I agree with the preference for objects to be handmade over "plastic-y, store-bought, mass-produced stuff". So if more consumables make that easier for you to do, I'm cool with that!

Would you be interested in one of the Colorpop pallets?
No thanks.

Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3?
Nah, I'm set with holiday music.

Do you like toffee or fudge?
Toffee--absolutely. Fudge--if it is dark chocolatey, and especially with nuts

Are you interested in anything from my etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com...winklentwilight
Yes! I would get a ton of use out of one of those drawstring project bags. And I have a soft spot for weirdo monster amigurumi, so wouldn't mind one of those either. =)

How do you feel about amigurumi (little crochet stuffies...animals, characters, ornaments, etc.)?
I make them and I love receiving them, especially mythological creatures/monsters and little animal or fandom ornaments.

If I were to crochet you something wearable, do you have any preferences? Do you like hats, scarves, gloves, other? And would you prefer something fun and whimsical (e.g. fox face hat or owl mittens), something delicate and pretty (e.g. lacy wraps or scalloped boot cuffs), or just something like a basic, no frills beanie or cowl? Do you have a Ravelry account and a list of favorite patterns?
I love hats and fingerless gloves, and like both silly and pretty styles of things. I'm 44sunsets on Ravelry as well, and have a couple of favorites bundles there that I will probably add more too in the coming days!

What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics?
All of the above. I like all kinds of tea and herbals except rooibos. I prefer light or medium roast coffees. I love cocoa, especially dark chocolate and mint. Love cider, both alcoholic and non. For booze, I prefer scotch/whiskey/bourbon and beer, but the only thing I really wouldn't be into is tequila.

What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc?
I prefer jar or tin candles to tealights/pillars/etc. For scents, I like citrus, fir or other woods, sage, lavender, fig, and fruit with cardamom, cloves, or other spices. More on the herbal and earthy side than vanillic or floral.

Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen?
Absolutely. Anything from baking mixes to savory seasoning mixes.

What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for?
Hmmm...I've just started doing some beading/jewelry making. So tools (crimper, loom, bead mat, size 10 beading needles) or seed beads or beginner kits.

We do a lot of baking and holiday good ridiculousness around here...house specialties include lebkuchen (flourless, they're mostly nuts, spices, candied fruit), marzipan, butter caramels (flavored or plain), shortbread crisps, and savory cheese shortbread. Any of these sound appealing?
Those all sound amazing, but especially marzipan or savory cheese shortbread!

What are your top places to get a gift card from?
Lush, Etsy, Starbucks, Amazon

Which holiday symbols/themes do you like the best (or least)? Such as Santas, snowflakes, reindeer, etc.
Snowflakes and stars, snow covered landscapes, candles and evergreen boughs, fair isle and plaid, festive deer and foxes and other woodland animals. Love Nightmare Before Christmas. Not so into Santa, angels, or snowmen.

Do you like puzzles?
I do. Alas, I don't have a good place to do jigsaw puzzles currently, but I love logic puzzles and other puzzle games.

Do you have a strong preference for numbered packages vs randomly picking with maybe a few hints along the way?
No strong preference

Are you jonesing for any particular BPAL right now? Anything you are just dying to try, even just a sniffie?
Really, anything from the American Gods series. I want to smell them ALL and it kills me that they are unimpable!! (I bought The Carousel as a gift, so got to test that before sending it on, but any other scent from that line would be welcome.)

How do you feel about the following flavors/ingredients:
Coconut? Like it best toasted, but good either way.
Mint? Only combined with chocolate.
Lavender? Love!
Rosewater? Also love! Flower-flavor all the things!
Cardamom? Yup.
Candied citrus peel/marmalade? Grapefruit is my favorite, but all citrus is good.
Any other flavors to absolutely avoid? No dates, raisins, or bbq or onion flavored things, please.

Would you like anything crafted for the storage/transport of the BPAL? (Travel imp containers, boxes for 5mls, bottle cozy, etc.) If so, do you prefer them to be plain or decorated? If decorated, are there any motifs or art that you'd particularly like?
I'm good on travel imp containers, but could use some sort of home imp storage solution besides "throw them all in a box". Also, a box that could safely protect one or two 5mls for travel purposes would be nice. I'm set on home storage for 5mls. Fine with plain, but I also dig paisley or lunar motifs and fae (like Froud) or animal art on my storage.

12 Days of Christmas 2017

12 Days of Christmas 2017 -- you can also read my answers from Switch Witch and 13 Days of Halloween 2017 in my blog if you want.

Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi?
I'm super sad that my Rose City pumpkin butter is almost gone (and I don't see it on the site anymore - it was rose and patchouli.)
* Snow Wolf, Turkish Delight, would love of a sample of Haus Amber and Nefarious Gingerbread Man. (Pumpkin Butter and any of the scrubs.)
* Pomander, Fir Boughs and Incense, Serenity (butter bombs)
* Candy Cane, Butterscotch (lip balm)
* For perfume only, the birthday ambers are on sale and I was wanting to try Amber & Rose, Amber & Incense, or Amber Noir. The Fall Black Musks are killing me, I love black musk. I'm most interested in Black Musk & Nag Champa, Black Musk, Leather & Rose, Black Musk, Anise & Vanilla. I've never smelled their black musk though, so I hope it's good!

Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened?
Sorbetto or bath streusel only: Winter Stories or Figs in Honey. (no lotions or soap please.) I do love her goat milk body cream and wish she would make the lavender honey scented again. There are plenty other of scents on there I'd love too.

Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Scent wise: Black, Black Marshmallow, Black Vanilla, Black Velvet, Black Widow, Broomstick, Come-hither, Cozy Blanket, Fear of Ghosts, Genevieve, Lipstick Stains, Marshmallow, Monster in the Walls, Naughty, Sensory Deprivation Tank, Stanley Hotel, The Upside-Down, Vanilla on the Rocks, Vanilla Rose,
- Product wise: ShampPink shampoo, dermabrasion sample, I'm 29 serum, either the coco mango or the voluptuous body butters, linen spray, sugar scrub. No perfume please.

How do you feel about pomanders?
They smell good - I used to make them for people.

How do you feel about savor soaps?
No bar soap for me please. I am not really a fan of whipped soap either, but I do like sugar scrubs so I added some of those to my etsy wishlist. I added some whipped soap too, but mostly for the scents that I liked, not for the whipped soap itself.

Or Perfectly Posh?
No thank you.

Do you have feelings about fruitcake? We're talking whiskey soaked homemade fruitcake, not a brick in a festive tin.
So I've only ever had one fruitcake that I liked -- cherry almond fruitcake (with pears, marzipan, and amaretto.) I usually beg my mom to make me one every year.

Any strong nail polish and/or makeup preferences?
I don't usually wear nail polish (except for BPTP polish!) but I have some on my etsy list that changes color (I'm a sucker for color changing things) and I'm really intrigued by ilnp. (Raven, Abyss, Moonstone, Birefringence, Westwing, By Nightfall, Ava, Walking Home, Missed Calls, Deja Vu....) Makeup wise, I only wear prescriptives foundation and powder. I love black eyeliner that won't smudge or smear (I've been using Stila smudge stick and kat von d tattoo liner but both of those still run a little.) I just got two lippies in another swap but I can always use more (light 'blue leaning' plums/rose.) I don't wear brown, yellow, gold, beige, or cream. I'm into silver, black, grey, purple, blue. Sometimes reds/greens but not often. I have a ton of loose eyeshadows but rarely wear them. I could use some good mascara.

Favorite animals?
Not in any particular order: Bats, pibbles, friesian horses. Mythological: hippocampus, unicorn, gargoyles/grotesques, toothless.

Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff?
I have a strong preference for things that are useful as opposed to things that just sit. Games, shirts, foods, yes! (no bar soap please.)

Would you be interested in Colorpop?
The only palette that calls to me is the Yin to your yang. For lippies, I like Ice Cube, Sauce, Baewatch (ugh, I hate the name though), and the Amethyst crystal balm. Black eyeliner.

Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3?
No thank you.

Do you like toffee or fudge?
Fudge yes, but no nuts or anything in my fudge. Love butterscotch or peanut butter! Plain chocolate is awesome too but my mom makes that, as well as toffee, every year.

How do you feel about amigurumi (little crochet stuffies...animals, characters, ornaments, etc.)?
I like them! (We make and sell them on our etsy store.) My most favorite one ever was a pit bull amigurumi that was gifted to me.

If I were to crochet you something wearable, do you have any preferences? Do you like hats, scarves, gloves, other? And would you prefer something fun and whimsical (e.g. fox face hat or owl mittens), something delicate and pretty (e.g. lacy wraps or scalloped boot cuffs), or just something like a basic, no frills beanie or cowl? Do you have a Ravelry account and a list of favorite patterns?
I really don't like most crocheted wearables, I prefer knitted. I am on Ravelry as misstwilight and I do have some bundles under my favorites called "make for me." Please don't make anything out of my general favorites.

What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics?
Lately I have been mostly using the keurig to make coffee and tea (or using cold brew coffee.) I do have some coffee beans and tea on my amazon "edibles" wishlist. I like black tea, especially flavored or cinnamon, and mint tea - especially with licorice. (I hate chamomile.) I love sweet hard cider, especially JK Scrumpy and Ace's pumpkin cider. Ghiradelli Double Chocolate cocoa and Vosges Parisian drinking chocolate are my favorites. Alcohol wise, I like just about everything but mostly things like amaretto, baileys, kahlua, sinfire, vanilla vodka, marshmallow vodka, etc.

What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc?
Vanillas, spices, woodsy, smoky, incense, marshmallow, patchouli, resins, tobacco.

Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen?
I'm probably pretty good on spices since I don't cook much.

What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for?
Probably my altar. I could use an altar cloth and some other items.

We do a lot of baking and holiday good ridiculousness around here...house specialties include lebkuchen (flourless, they're mostly nuts, spices, candied fruit), marzipan, butter caramels (flavored or plain), shortbread crisps, and savory cheese shortbread. Any of these sound appealing?
Nothing with nuts please. (It's a texture thing - I like nut butters though.) We do caramels too but I'd love to taste yours, especially flavored! Mmmm savory cheese!

What are your top places to get a gift card from?
ooh, hard to say. Smellies wise: BPAL/BPTP, Moonalisa, Nocturne Alchemy. Food wise: Panera, MOD Pizza, Qdoba/Chipotle, Trader Joes Otherwise: Amazon, Twisted Fiber Art, The Loopy Ewe, Paradise Fibers, Fresh from the Cauldron (etsy), Teeturtle, ThinkGeek, Costco. I'm sure I could think of more but really anywhere would be a treat.

Which holiday symbols/themes do you like the best (or least)? Such as Santas, snowflakes, reindeer, etc.
KRAMPUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also snowflakes.

Do you like puzzles?
I play a lot of puzzle games on my ipad but I don't do anything that requires me to hold a pen/pencil and I no longer do jigsaw puzzles (no place to put them, all of our tables are covered in other projects like cutting boards for fabric, sewing machines, etc. plus one table to eat at.) I went from a huge house, to sharing a basement, to having one small room, so my stuff is pretty crammed in here.

Do you have a strong preference for numbered packages vs randomly picking with maybe a few hints along the way?
Nope. Either way is fine.

Are you jonesing for any particular BPAL right now? Anything you are just dying to try, even just a sniffie?
Beautiful Macabre, Mummies of Mexico City. (for sniffing)

How do you feel about the following flavors/ingredients:
Coconut? I like coconut chips and toasted coconut, coconut oil for cooking, coconut sugar for baking, but I'm not really a fan of things like mounds or almond joy.
Mint? I love mint tea (especially combined with licorice root.) Mint frangoes are sometimes good, but otherwise I'm not a huge fan of mint and chocolate, it has to be something I'm in the mood for.
Lavender? I love lavender everything. We made lavender vanilla liqueur this year, as well as cordial for lavender lemonade.
Rosewater? Also made rose petal liqueur, rose jam, etc. Nom!
Cardamom? Yes.
Candied citrus peel/marmalade? My mom received some homemade candied orange peel in a recent ravelry swap and they were SO GOOD. Yes. (not a fan of marmalade though.)
Anything to absolutely avoid? flavor wise, I'm just having a hard time thinking of what to absolutely avoid beside things like mincemeat, pecan pie, lutefisk, things with nuts or marshmallows (texture, not flavor), etc.  
Would you like anything crafted for the storage or transport of the BPAL? (Travel imp containers, boxes for 5mls, bottle cozy, etc.)
I use ammo boxes and mint tins for imps and I have tons of boxes (both travel and storage) for bottles, so I'm good there. I wouldn't mind wall display type things for BPAL though! Like nail polish racks or coffin shaped shadow boxes with bpal sized shelves? Someday I am going to order the BPTP wall sconce for bpal bottles.
If so, do you prefer them to be plain or decorated? Either or!
If decorated, are there any motifs or art that you'd particularly like? I love celtic knots (ravens, dogs, horses, ferrets, just knots), swirly things, nightmare before christmas, bats, corvids, gargoyle/grotesques, skulls/calaveras, eye of horus/ankhs, krampus. More on the darker/gothy side.

2017 12 Days of Christmas Answers Etc.

Updated 11/11/17

Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi?
I am not terribly familiar with Haus of Gloi, but the bubbling scrub and pumpkin butter looks good and the Blood Orange Marshmallow scent sounds right up my alley, as do a lot of the yule scents.

Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened?
Winter Stories, O Tannenbaum - soap or scrub.

Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink?
I don't really use CP.

Do you have feelings about fruitcake? We're talking whiskey soaked homemade fruitcake, not a brick in a festive tin.
Personally, I love it and am happy to receive any festive fruity bread product.

Any strong nail polish and/or makeup preferences?
Personally the brighter and sparklier the better for all of it. Except blush. I don't wear blush at all.

How do you feel about pomanders?
I definitely enjoy them!

How do you feel about savor soaps?
I do like what I've tried - I would probably be more into the soap scrubs or whipped soap than the soap itself.

Or Perfectly Posh?
I know nothing about this brand at all. But if something looks like I'd like it, I'd be happy to try it!

Favorite animals?
Bats, owls, spiders, frogs, cats, dinosaurs, cephalopods...not the most Christmassy of critters, but I am a sucker for cute animals in santa hats.

Weird question, but it's on my mind: Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff?
Not really.

Would you be interested in one of the Colorpop pallets? Anything else from Colourpop?
I tend to prefer shadow crayons to pressed shadow and honestly none of them really pops out at me, no pun intended. I am curious about the liquid lip color, though.
Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3?
Yes! I'd prefer CDs or Amazon music - I especially like rock and roll versions of classics.

Do you like toffee or fudge?
Fudge, absolutely. Not a big fan of toffee.

Are you interested in anything from my etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com...winklentwilight(bags, stuffies, hats, fingerless mitts, lefse cozies...)
I absolutely love all of the stuffies! I really like the geeky print project bags, but don't have a lot of use for them, unless they were modified to be more like a handbag.

How do you feel about amigurumi (little crochet stuffies...animals, characters, ornaments, etc.)?
I think they are adorbs!

If I were to crochet you something wearable, do you have any preferences? Do you like hats, scarves, gloves, other? And would you prefer something fun and whimsical (e.g. fox face hat or owl mittens), something delicate and pretty (e.g. lacy wraps or scalloped boot cuffs), or just something like a basic, no frills beanie or cowl? Do you have a Ravelry account and a list of favorite patterns?
No ravelry account. I would especially love something fun and whimsical, a shawl or really big scarf would be especially cool.

What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics?
Please NO cocoa. Honestly, I'd probably prefer no tea at this point as well, as I have way too much of both. Coffee would be great - I have a grinder and would be particularly interested in seasonal flavors or local roasts. And I LOVE mulled white wine and mead and cider.

What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc?
Candles and other home scents are among the things I really do not need more of this year, sorry.

Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen?
Yes please! Garlicky, spicy, are good.

What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for?
Not that I can think of, but if I think of anything as I see other people answer, I'll update.

We do a lot of baking and holiday good ridiculousness around here...house specialties include lebkuchen (flourless, they're mostly nuts, spices, candied fruit), marzipan, butter caramels (flavored or plain), shortbread crisps, and savory cheese shortbread. Any of these sound appealing?
Every single one of them. *makes nommy hands*

What are your top places to get a gift card from?
Starbucks, Amazon, any B&B store you think I might like.
Which holiday symbols/themes do you like the best (or least)? Such as Santas, snowflakes, reindeer, etc.
I tend toward animals in silly Santa hats, snowmen, honestly, I like it all, but not country kitchy.
Do you like puzzles?
Yes! I love puzzles - jigsaw, little figity logic puzzles, all of them.


Do you have a strong preference for numbered packages vs randomly picking with maybe a few hints along the way?
I don't have a strong preference one way or another, so whatever your whims dictate.

Are you jonesing for any particular BPAL right now? Anything you are just dying to try, even just a sniffie?
My wishlist is pretty up to date, so there's nothing additional I really desperately want at the moment.

How do you feel about the following flavors/ingredients:
Coconut? I like it - I prefer it with creamy flavors and textures - so coconut cupcakes or coquito are amazing, not such a big fan of coconut macaroons.
Mint? I love peppermint this time of year.
Lavender? Yes!
Rosewater? Sure - I tend to like floral flavors.
Cardamom? Yes please!
Candied citrus peel/marmalade? This is one of my favorite things. Unfortunately, I am on medication that forbids grapefruit, which is one of my great sorrows ( but worth it not to migraine every day, alas).
Anything to absolutely avoid? Dill outside of pickles, BBQ or smoky flavors (I like actual BBQ, but I dislike it out of context and "smoke" flavor just tastes gross to me), blue/veiny/stinky cheeses. Really intensely bitter flavors (my 7 year old likes darker chocolate than I do).

Would you like anything crafted for the storage or transport of the BPAL? (Travel imp containers, boxes for 5mls, bottle cozy, etc.) If so, do you prefer them to be plain or decorated? If decorated, are there any motifs or art that you'd particularly like?
Not really. I don't need bottle storage, unless it comes with a magic spell that will magically organize the bottles that are all over my bedroom (I have an entire art cabinet for them, I just need to put them in there). A small imp cozy for travel wouldn't go amiss, but definitely not one of my priorities.

Random Questions:
- On a scale of 1-5, how organized are you? 1   - Where, outside of the U.S. would you love to visit? (if you're international, this can be anywhere): Tokyo   -Where, inside of the U.S. would you love to visit?: Anywhere I'd get to see wild wolves & bears, so probably Yellowstone?   -Favorite City in the US/World?: In the US - New York (I've only been there & Orlando). In the world: Bologna (with Edinburgh a close second)   - Do people tell you that you act older, younger, or your age?: Younger   -If I gave you a toy gun with flashing lights, would you hide and start shooting people from around corners OR would you thank me on the IGI thread and then quietly donate it (a niece, Oxfam, Goodwill, wherever)? (there are no wrong answers for this, so don't be afraid to answer honestly): Thank and quietly donate   - What animal do you feel like the most?: Left Shark. An actual animal...probably a domestic cat
- Your favorite feature about yourself: I quite like my hair   - Do you live in a neighborhood or in the middle of nowhere? In a village, about 20 minutes from a city   -Have you ever thought, "oh, I'm going to get myself one of those one of these days" but then never do? List 1 under $10 and 1 over $10. Under $10 - some cute stickers Over $10 - a ban.do agenda, or similar big planner   - How do you feel about boi witches?: I'm not sure what it means, but I'm sure I feel fine about them   - Do you like garage sales (boot sales)? No, I hate haggling   - I like to slather my food in : Any available condiment, but if it's appropriate then ideally buffalo sauce & blue cheese sauce. Here in the UK, I put mint sauce on pretty much all meats, to everyone's horror   - State fairs or carnivals? I like them (not sure if this is a choice question or a yes/no one)
- You throw caution to the wind and runaway to join a traveling circus. What job would you want ( a main performer, a side show, a behind the scenes spot, etc) and why? I think I'd want to be a clown as I'm terrified of them, it might be a sort of extreme exposure therapy.

- What mythical or fantastic race of creatures (dragons, unicorns, griffins, elves, dwarves, faeries, etc.) do you most identify with? I don't know much about mythical creatures but I always thought it would be fun to be like Puck, the sprite in Midsummer Night's Dream - mischievously meddling in other people's affairs.   - Imagine that you're given a shoebox-sized time capsule, and you are asked to put any number of items in the box that symbolize who you are. The items can be may be anything you can imagine, and money is no object, but they must fit within the box. What do you choose? Notebook & pink gel pen, a few paints, a four-cheese pizza (probably a calzone, so it'll fit), a GPS watch, a sprig of lavender, some fancy bath oil, my kindle, some shells from my nearby beach, a ticket to my local comedy club, one of those classy little cans of gin & tonic.

- Do you need storage boxes/bottles/containers? Decorated or Plain? I always need more containers of any sort. Decorated or plain, I don't mind.   - The world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours? Helicopter up to Edinburgh with my husband and have pancakes at my favourite cafe. Then fly to Tuscany, where a Maserati would be waiting for us. Drive round Tuscany looking at the scenery until we arrive at Bologna at lunchtime. Have cotoletta bolognese and some good wine for lunch, then spend the afternoon wandering the streets looking in little shops etc. Go to a deli and buy some really good meats, cheeses, bread and wines, and spend the evening on a private balcony overlooking the city. So basically, I'd eat.
- Do you like steampunk & if so what kind of steampunk item would you most like to receive? I do! I love the aesthetic and I've read a few stories/seen a couple of steampunk films, I'd be open to anything.   - Do you have an Etsy shop? No   - Would you like to receive baked goods, if so what kind? Ideally not, I'm a bit funny about baked goods in the post   - What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions? This might have come across in previous questions, but I'm basically obsessed with art/pictures to do with cities or the night sky, or ideally a combination of the two. Just as an example, this is one of my favourite prints that I have, and I love Jeremy Mann's cityscapes. I also really like art/crafts depicting the moon, either realistically or more cartoony.

Paintbox addendum

Just a note to my Switch Witch, should you be considering my comments about the Paintbox Weenies: I think I put in my questionnaire that I don't/can't use scrubs. Would love soaps or lotions in any scent mentioned though, or even wax tarts. Or just a gift card. Not sayin anything, just sayin. hehe

Twi's dried apples? Yes
Greenwoodtree's Fudge? Yes, regular chocolate, plain or with walnuts

I'm less fond of the burnishing glaze, it's too oily and is messy

10/3/17

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/ I'll update my on forum wishlist!

10/1/17

Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
Surprise me. I avoid bar soap but anything else would be lovingly sampled.

Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com see below answer re: strobe cosmetics

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)? I would probably enjoy samples but I prefer MAC makeup and I'd probably never use all I own, it's a serious hoarding situation to be honest. We're talking in excess of 250 lipsticks alone...

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff? Love it!

Would you like to get some favorite recipes? I am a disaster as a baker but I love to look at recipes anyway.

Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut?

SW 2017 Witch Specific Questions!

The thread has gotten pretty overwhelming, so I'm going to put Q's you've asked directly ( or Q's I think you might want to know the answer to) in this blog entry for your convenience.

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/   The Unicorns are ADORABLE but I don't need any more stuffed animals, really.   otherwise, the fingerless gloves all look lovely, and I could use some for work(the office is ALWAYS freezing).
Color/design wise, the "SFO Sky" mitts caught my eye.       - What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?   Goodness, this is hard. I think...   The Last Unicorn
Tiki King
?? Maybe De Sade?   This is hard for me because at this point I've gotten most of my holy grails (Glowing Vulva) and the really expensive DC/LE's don't appeal to me. I went on a BPAL hiatus for 5 years and I'm not really interested in tracking down all of the stuff I missed. I'm open to trying new things, but I'm not super crazy about tracking down much older stuff.

I've always wanted to try the Clockwork Couture scents (Male and Female).

I'd also LOVE to try the "Burning Books SN" that was released recently. But it was super limited I think, so it's probably hard to track. Still, those might give you ideas on what I like.

But, more than that, I now know that I absolutely need to get more Dorian, from like... two years ago.
I'm not sure if you're aware of the kerfluffle with Dorian. It went out of stock last year and just recently has come back. I have half of a very old bottle (12 years!) and while it's AMAZING, it's not quite the Dorian I remember. Right when it went OOS last year I wanted to buy a fresher bottle.

When it came back recently, I snagged a bottle but..it's not the same...at all. it's a lovely scent, but it's not Dorian.

On the other hand, a friend of mine has a bottle from about two years ago, and THAT is the scent I remember. So now...I'm on the hunt for Dorian from around 2012-2015.
 
- What are some things you do NOT want to receive?   Hm. I'm not opposed to much. Nothing edible that's not gluten free.
Things without a purpose (trinkets, etc). Trying REALLY hard to de-clutter.
Jewelry/Clothing/Home Decor/ in the colors of yellow/pink/orange.  
- what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
Surprisingly, there's only a few I feel really strongly about and really think I want, but quite a few that I'm very curious about and would really like to sniff and get a decant of. There's only one or two I'm really interested in a bottle of. I attached a text document so it doesn't clutter up the email too much.
I feel really bad about how long that is; please don't think I want or expect all of that. If you are able to get "sniffies" or half decants of anything, I am more than ok with that!


The ones I MIGHT be interested in a blind bottle of would be "Violent Gesticulations" ( for the scent description and the title) and " Chiroptophobia (Fear of Bats) "

I bought a decant of the Dead Leaves and Black Musk HG from the Trading Post, but there's (kind of thankfully) not much from the BPTP Halloween Update that I think I'm interested in.

Re: Scrivener and Writing Software, I can technically use Mac and PC, and I use Scrivener on both. I have a MacBook for work and I keep Scrivener on it in case I have a sudden fit of inspiration at work.
But all of my personal systems are PCs so it's probably safer to get me software for those.


Re: are you planning on moving any time soon, say within the next year? I've been wanting to move out to the Pacific NW for years now, and I'm currently trying to find a new job, and would be open to moving out to the PNW. This is part of my personal push to be more productive; I'm trying to find a new job AND finish a novel.

But that being said, realistically? I don't know if I'll be moving within the next year. So let's say that answer is a "probably not moving in the next year". (I guess I could win the lotto, which would have a greater chance of happening than me finding the perfect job and moving out there in the next year).

does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/

I've tried some of their scents before,as freebies from other trades and sales. I'm really interested in the "burnished glace", in any autumn scents you think I might like, based on my preferred scent notes.

10/3/17

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/
I ordered half-decants of all the perfumes (OMG, they all sound so good!) and a sample of Deserted Theater because I’m a sucker for that kind of thing. Can’t wait for reviews!

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)?
Nope.

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?
I like Aggretsuko, but I’m not super into the fandom.

Would you like to get some favorite recipes?
Sure! I especially like one-pot or slow cooker meals because I’m a lazy bitch.

Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut?
I don’t have any use for snuggly scarves anymore, sadly, and I prefer long scarves for general fashion purposes.

http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store
Danse Macabre is nice.

Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things?
Definitely! DdlM isn’t really my style, but more Halloweeny stuff definitely would be!

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?
A lot of the lip balms sound great, but they appear to all be sold out. Interested in the French Vanilla, Lavender Lemonade, and Lemon Creme.


9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
Yes to a 2018 day planner or cute notebooks! Other stationery wouldn’t get used much, I’m afraid.

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson
OMG, A Mother Most Macabre is so, so perfect. I’d LOVE that as a print. I also really love The Yellow Wallpaper, The Fortune Teller, Hades and Persephone IV, Jack O’Lantern, Masque of the Red Death, Mother of Dragons, The Plague Doctor, and many others. God, her artwork is so incredible, isn’t it?! I’m so glad to own some of her creations on BPAL bottles. <3

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
Some scarves, but I’d much rather have a scarf handmade by my Witch if zie is so inclined.

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)
A scarf or shawl would be great! Chain mail sounds really fantastic; if my Witch is so inclined, I’d love to see some samples so I can get a better idea of what they look like.

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?
I’d love a City Mug from my Witch’s city!

Anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.
YES! Butterscotch or nutless chocolate would be my preferences amount those three. Storebought fudge is good too. All your fudge is belong to me.

Do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)
YUM! Yes to all the spicy things.

What would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
I ordered half-decants of all the Single Notes and a few other things, and eventually I want to get bottles of Hallowe’en 1914 since I missed out last time, Pumpkin Spice Snake Oil, Cardamom Cream Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Chypre, and maybe backups of October and Samhainophobia.

9/24/17

Do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
I don’t collect them per se, but I do have a bunch and make sure to save the ones I don’t already own. All mine are already packed up, but I’d be happy to check for you once we’re settled, Witch, if you have some you’d like to offload.

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
I LOVE Howling Pig Ranch!

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
The last question reminded me how much I love pigs! I also love cats (especially black cats, but I love all kitties!), dogs, dolphins, otters, wolverines, whales, and sharks.
Mythological creatures: I used to LOOOOVE “sea serpents” when I was a kid. Still do. Unicorns too.

Would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)
Ooh, I like Depeche Mode, but I’m not a big enough fan to warrant major swag - a pin would be cool, though; I’ve been wanting to add more to my denim jacket (patches too!)

Switch Witch 2017 questions

Scooby Doo? I am somewhat neutral, but my kids all like it.

How do you feel about indie makeup- I love it, but I also create it (I am Back to the Earth), so none is needed

Hand-painted BPAL box: would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? I adore boxes and tins of all sort, the more unique and unusual, the better.

K Beauty: No

Cocoa Pink: nope

Haus of Gloi: no

Moonalisa: Again, nope. Generally too many synthetics, though I have wondered about their soap as I can never find an ingredients list.

LUSH: I love a few things from them, but stick to their 100% natural stuff.

Future Primitive: Nothing stands out to me from this company

Nui Cobalt: Ooo, their soy candles look interesting

Sihaya and Company:
I love their boxes, and their jewelry is beautiful. I would not use the candles though, as I stick to veggie or soy wax.

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
I would love to learn silversmithing, and stone cutting. I would also like to expand my glass blowing abilities at some point.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? Coffee: whole beans or ground? Flavor and roast preferences? Tea: Chai, chai and more chai!! Not a fan of green tea, but I am open to just about any other organic, natural tea (no artificial flavors, please). Coffee: whole bean, organic, usually espresso. I love trying new organic coffees. Current favs are Kicking Horse, Equal Excange, The Organic Coffee Company, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
I do! I really adore cute washi tapes, and I also use a ton of the little gift bags and whatnot for my swaps & sales.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
I would love animal statues made from natural materials, like wood, or brass or something. Stuffed animals not as much, but I would make an exception for the right one.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
No thank you.

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
Tester would be nice, but neither one grabs me too much

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?
Yes, yes, and yes! I am trying to eliminate plastics, and incorporate reusables as much as possible. Anything having to do with homesteading, wilderness, survival, and minimalism will be greatly embraced

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanner?
Calendars always get put to good use around here. Dayplanners, not as much.

If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
I am pretty open

What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
sure?

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson
Oooo, such awesomeness! How have I never discovered this artist before? Definitely some fun stuff.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
They are kinda pricey, but they have some really neat stuff, for sure.

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)
For sure! Open to just about anything, though we could always use more washcloths. Just pure cotton though, no wool, silk, or synthetics, please.

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?
I do not collect anything from this company

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch
Probably not

do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)
I like spicy stuff up to about medium-hot, but am not big on potato chips.

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
Cinnamon Chai Cupcake!!!

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
Nothing specific, though the unicorn is super cute

Japan: No, thank you

Hand knit: Love it! Just cotton though, organic preferred. I do not use silk or wool, and am trying to also cut out acrylic and other synthetics

Poetry: sure

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
Absolutely! Again, no silk/wool/synthetics though

Favorite gemstones?
malachite, garnet, amethyst, rainbow moonstone, fire agate, moldavite, ocean jasper.... there are really so many, I just love stones.

Witchee, I have a small but awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does any of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
I am always open to natural, handmade soaps, and soy or veggie wax candles! No honey, beeswax, propolis or other animal derivatives though, please.

Witchee, I'm about to place an order with Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? I am totally good on cosmetics, so no thank you

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Probaby Loli-Dragon, Love Low, and Gingerbread, red Fruits & Sweet Jam

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Dirt scented anything, anything made with animal based materials, edibles that are not 100% natural and vegan

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
I love animals soooo much, so almost any critter would be a hit, but I do have a special place in my heart for chipmunks and dragonflies. I am also very big on fairies and dragons, but would probably like just about anything based on a mythological creature.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
I do not drink, so probably not

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
No animal products, please

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
For sure, but I have an allergy in my household, so it could not have citric acid or other sub-ingredients much past fruit and sugar.

Harry Potter fans and what house/s do you belong to?
Harry Potter is pretty cool- I do not collect the merch myself, but my teenage daughter (who is apparently a Slither-Claw) would be over the moon about it.

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? Oh, I would just love some organic cotton socks! I keep putting off buying them. Also open to bamboo, but no wool or synthetics, please. I really like Sock Dreams in specific, they are not organic or anything, but they have some super fun stuff. I usually wear mid calf, or knee socks, and do not like the really low cut ones.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Absolutely open to partials!

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap?
Oh, I love Cellar Door so much. I want like, all of their soy candles.

Sure!

Switch Witch 2017 Questions

I'm going to keep all the ketchup here for my witch

Here are my amazon wishlists: http://a.co/5jItXeq
http://a.co/0AQ8TmF
http://a.co/b4i25d4

Here's my etsy wishlist - it gives a good sense of my tastes as does my pinterest
https://www.pinterest.ca/rbecksf/
https://www.etsy.com/ca/people/rebeccafoley4/favorites?ref=hdr

10/1/17

Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
I love candles and soaps (animal product free if possible please - except beeswax, I'm alright with that). I love hot sauce so new hot sauces I'm always open to as well!

Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com
Some of those lipsticks look amazing!!!!   I've been toying with the idea of a vampy dark red, so Royal looks really intriguing (https://smoldercosmetics.com/collections/lips/products/royal)

As does this https://smoldercosmetics.com/collections/lips/products/libby-liquid-matte-lipstick-coming-soon-smolder-cosmetics-x-ashley-rosales

Loose pigments aren't my favourite because I'm usually a disaster and manage to spill them everywhere. I'll use them if I get them but I don't go out of my way to get them.

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)?
Those eyeshadows are all gorgeous!!! I may have mentioned I don't wear a huge amount of makeup so I rarely buy any new things that are fun, but if I were given some I'd have an excuse to play more. I don't wear super dark or bright colours often because I'm so pale and wear brights so infrequently that I feel super awkward wearing them. But interesting neutrals, greens, and coppers usually get worn.
How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?
HK really isn't my thing. Adorable but not really me.

Would you like to get some favorite recipes?
ALWAYS!!!! I love cooking and baking so much so if people are willing to share their favourites I'm always down. Have I mentioned my obsession with cookbooks. I think it gets a little out of hand sometimes but I love them despite my inability to follow a recipe while cooking (don't worry I follow things to a T when I bake).
Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut?
These pieces are beautiful but not really my style.

9/30/17

Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list
There's surprisingly nothing that I NEED to have but cozy pumpkin, Grimoire, hex, and pumpkin eater all sound very lovely.
9/26/17

Halloweenie update of doom scents that I'd be interested in:
Pumpkin Spice Perversion!!!! Holy smokes! I love pumpkin spice scents and combined with Perversion it might end me.
Singularly At Ease - I'm intrigued by this scent. I'm not really that into baked good scents, but the tea note is interesting.


What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
​Cake Smash - I'm still regretting not picking it up in my first order.
​Severin - yes I'm insane, but I love tea and leather notes!
Casanova - I still have an imp of this but rarely wear it because I can't get more.


What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Animal products - that includes bones and things. Even when sourced from naturally deceased animals they creep me out a little.
Other than that and things containing allergens for me I'm not terribly picky. Although I should note that if an allergen slips by it's no worry because I'm sure my boyfriend would enjoy food that I can't eat.

9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
​I love them, but I'm super pleased with my current one.
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
​I don't do a lot of things that are super cutesy, but I'm open to colours, images, and patterns.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
I'm pretty good on that front I think. Unless you find something super nerdy

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson
Gosh, her work is beautiful too! I could possibly use some prints but am having difficulties choosing.
9/24/17

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
I do not collect them. I haven't made a lab purchase in a long while either

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
Wow those are so beautiful!!!

I particularly like:
https://www.shannatrumbly.com/paperprints/beeting-hearts
https://www.shannatrumbly.com/paperprints/the-cosmos-keepers-1

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
I love raccoons. I know love for trash pandas is super weird but I love them anyway.

I also love horses, owls, and peacocks.

As for the mythical, I've always loved unicorns, dragons, and phoenixes.
would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)
​No thanks

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
​Take a Knee sounds great!

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?
​Nothing that I can think of.

9/23/17

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
​I'm well stocked on the three wick candles which are the main things I get from there other than soap, but I usually make soap decisions on the fly.

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like?
​I've mentioned lots of crystals down below, but really anything that you think might feel right is appreciated.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
​No pumpkin for me please, chocolate zucchini on the other hand is delicious, but depending on where my lovely witch is from may not fair well in the postal system.

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Peanut butter, or peanut butter chocolate chip.
Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)
​I could always use a muscle rub. I'm nearly always in some sort of muscle discomfort - so I'd use the heck out of that.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
​Those sound amazing but alas with an alcohol allergy not the greatest idea

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
​I'm well stocked on honey for the moment.

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
​I love jam. As long as there's no pineapple I'm down.

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
​That sounds amazing!!! I love all of those things.

I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.
​I do love a good dehydrated apple so I'd be open to that.

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases?
​I'm good on bags, I usually use things until they die, and nothing's dead yet (fingers crossed things stay that way). Same with pillowcases.

9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
Not really my thing - I've never been into apple cider that much.

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
I LOVE baths!!! I'm less found of oils in the tub (because I'm lazy and hate cleaning the bathtub more than I have to) but love salts and things that fizz or bubble.

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?
I have a Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017 version). It has a boring black case on it right now. I'm totally open to a new nerdy case for it, but I've found finding cases for it to be difficult. I also have a Microsoft Surface which I could use a nice case for but currently do not have.

9/21/17

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
​The caramel apple lollypops sound delicious but I can't seem to find an ingredient list - if there's dairy its a no go (but then again if it only might contain dairy I'll be fine but actual dairy in food gives me hives).

Are any witchees into coloring books?
No, I've had multiple people try to get me into them for de-stressing (because I'm a fairly stressed out person) but I find them stressful because I feel the ned to colour them in perfectly.

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
This is genius! https://www.animicausa.com/shop/Moby-Lid-Silicone-Lid/tpflypage.tpl.html
And holy crap there's so much cute stuff there!

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
​I don't really need new dishes nor do I have the space

9/20/17

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?
​YES!!!!!! I love all the Broadway shows! I want to see Hamilton (yes I'm super basic), I'd love to see Phantom live, Funny Girl is one of my all time favourite musicals, I also love Wicked, Book of Mormon, Spamalot, Chicago, and tons more.

My first musical ever was Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. And the only musical I've ever seen that I didn't enjoy much was Cats (I just really dislike Memory).

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
​Can't think of anything specific but con stuff is always cool!

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
​This is my question so I don't think I really need to answer it. LOL.

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
​Some of those infinity scarves are absolutely gorgeous!

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
​Not online ones, I have a few favourite local boutiques to Edmonton but

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!
Knitted or crocheted sweaters (I'm currently working on my first crocheted sweater - it seems to be going alright at the very least). I love the look and feel of over sized grandfather like sweaters, both cardigans and over the head ones.

​I also am always entranced by jewelry. I love gemstone pendants so I'd probably pick up the ones that felt right for me. I used to only gravitate towards stones for love and self-love but honestly I'm in love and happy so I don't feel the need for that I've been struggled with a lot of fatigue lately so maybe some root chakra grounding stones would be useful/what I need to gravitate towards.

The last thing I'm always drawn to at art/craft shows are body products. I love small batch, handmade lotions and soaps.

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I LOVE think geek. So basically anything from any of my fandoms would make me happy Actually, I'm pretty happy in general, think geek stuff would just make me extra happy.

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
​Not that I can think of.

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)
Nope.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
Nerd. Bascially that's my decorating style anyway, but I just like to mix and match fandoms in my decorating.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
​I was literally just talking about this with the BF the other day. I bake and cook a lot and said I really should have an apron to complete my domestic goddess thing. By no means am I actually a domestic goddess, but we joke about that all the time since I'm almost always trying out a new recipe, or crocheting something like a baby blanket or hats for all the babies in my life right now.

So after I rambled with that ridiculous story, I would definitely be open to a cooking apron, preferably something with a pocket in the front, but could be nerdy or cute. But really an apron could be very useful.
BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll)
Not really my thing.

9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
​I have a love/hate relationship with socks. I often don't like wearing them around the house because I love bare feet, but my feet are also always freezing so I should wear them more frequently. That being said I always love wearing knee high/over the knee socks with boots, I prefer not to have true woolen socks as they're a little itchy. I should note I have large calves for my size (I'm usually a size 10ish - but slowly losing weight but my calves are still large at about 16 inches circumference) so socks with cool patterns often look awful on me. I do love a good textural pattern like cabling on socks though. In my regular shoes I prefer ankle socks, but those get taken off the moment I'm in the door basically.

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
I would be - a good used bookstore is such a magical place.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
​I'm totally down for that!

So what are your favorite fandoms?
​There are too many to list so I'll pick the BIG ones. Mass Effect, Doctor Who, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, and Alien.
9/17/17

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
I Love lavender so much! I'd be down for lavender anything.

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
​I read tarot and oracle cards (not particularly well and only for myself). I haven't been looking for anything specifically but I do love pretty tarot or oracle decks

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
​For sure - I think they're super neat - years ago I had an astrology birthchart done by greenwoodtree and it was amazing!!! I'd totally be open to a new one now that I'm about to turn 27.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
​Nothing that I can think of in particular right now.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
I do love a good soap. That lavender pumpkin soap sounds divine (I'm only food allergic to pumpkin, topical is fine - my chronic illness is super weird). So does the pumpkin chai latte. That place seems amazing - really I'd be down to try anything

https://cellardoorbathsupply.com/collections/bar-soaps/products/lavender-pumpkin-bar-soap
https://cellardoorbathsupply.com/collections/bar-soaps/products/pumpkin-chai-latte-bar-soap

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?
​I love gemstones! I don't have any rose quartz for some reason, because I haven't quite found the right piece for it yet. I love the amethysts I have, a green adventurine pendant, smokey quartz. I also love the look of selenite. I really do just like gemstones of all types though

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
​I much prefer understated jewelry, simple pendants, small rings. Gaudy and chunky aren't really my style. I hate large stones on rings and things that can get caught on things. While I enjoy a large gemstone pendant the rest of my jewelry is very minimalist.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
​Pirates are cool but I don't have an obsession or anything.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
Disney is super cool!

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
HUGE Potterhead!!! I'm definitely a Ravenclaw, although my boyfriend and I are in a constant debate about how Gryffindor I am (I think I'm not, he says I am because it's pretty brave to move across the country by myself, twice, for school). He's a Hufflepuff, and I'd say Hufflepuff is my secondary house if I had to choose.

How do you feel about chokers?
I love how they look, but hate how they feel. Maybe I'm just not wearing the right kind?

9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
​I don't really have room in my condo for that

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?
No, but I LOVE trader joes!! Their chili lime dried mango pieces are the greatest! I'm down for any vegan snacks from there But unfortunately no pumpkin as I'm allergic.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I LOVE cooking and baking!!!! I'm always open to interesting spices and flavourings. As for kitchen gadgets/utensils, I've gotten into making pies recently, but I don't have a pie lifter.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
​Not that I can think of

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
​I'd love to see the name of my witch if s/he is willing to tell me because I'd like to thank them properly.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
No thanks - I'd totally lose stamps.

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? I have a kitty! Merlin loves toys on sticks, and stuffed things. He's very easy to please

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
​I've never really liked Nocturne Alchemy - something in their carrier oil does weird things on my skin.

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)
Zip Line and Wednesday's Child is Full of Woe perfumes sound amazing!!!
Basically any claw polish - I LOVE painting my nails
UGH Massage oil - that stuff is the greatest and I've run out of mine!
TKO Massage oil - what a great sleepy time scent!

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
​I'm a huge gamer!!!! I'm a console gamer (ps4). Currently my boyfriend and I are obsessed with Destiny 2 and are playing that almost every night together.

I also LOVE Mass Effect (my boyfriend recently got me a stuffed grunt to go with my Garrus pop figure in my living room), Dragon Age, Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Legend of Zelda. I'm itching to get my hands on a Nintendo Switch which has been very difficult but when I finally buy one I know my time will be taken up by Breath of the Wild.

There are some games on my Amazon wishlist linked above if that helps

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy!

I love knitted and crocheted scarves, but I live in Edmonton where it feels like winter lasts for 8 months and it gets down to -30 celicius regularly meaning that the beautiful eyelet and lacy scarves aren't as practical here. But really I love scarves and will find a use for any kind. I really love infinity scarves in particular though

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
Allergic unfortunately

Like booze? What kinds?
Ditto above

Like Wine? What kinds?
Ditto above

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
​Not really my thing but they sound pretty cool.

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?
Rocky Horror Picture Show is a staple as is Practical Magic.

I don't really like horror films, although I won't say no to a viewing of Carrie or Alien.

Fan-merch is totally fine by me
9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
That soap maker looks super cool. Everything looks great but I avoid goats milk in things because of the whole vegan thing, but the body oils look lovely:
https://littleseedfarm.com/collections/all/products/organic-essenitial-oil-body-lotion-alternative(in citrus or lavender)
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
​I love cats so I always have an affinity for the traditional black cat imagery.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
I love candy, from the super cheap to the specialty kind. I also love chocolate although sometimes it's difficult to get some without milk (if it says may contain milk I'm find but I do avoid ones with milk in the actual ingredients).

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
​Nothing I can think of thanks.

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
Not my thing either.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
​I have really long hair but don't really do a lot with it other than ponytails, braids, and wearing it down. If you find something that will help me do more with it I'm totally into that. Plus I'm in the middle of growing out my bangs and it's driving me wild!

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
​Jams and candy are always good bets for me. I don't really need anymore honey though - I've got a great local supplier when necessary.

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
​I love subscriptions but have never gotten any myself. I know vegan cuts does a beauty box and a food box, and there's some cool looking yoga ones and underwear ones, but I've never made the dive into them. They seem super cool though!

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
I don't really dress up - I haven't done anything special for Halloween in years. Although this year the plan is to hang with my boyfriend and his friends like they usually do.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
I use Spotify all the time. I'm rarely not listening to music.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
​I prefer physical books but will read online sometimes as well. I love books in general but do not tend towards horror with the exception of Poe and I have his full collected works.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
​I'm a candle and diffuser person. I don't have any specific desires for either, but I'm not adverse to them either. But the diffuser oils need to be pure essential oils for my machine.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
​I'm always down for more yarn but other than that I'm not the biggest crafter, I sew but not particularly often anymore.



9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
​I don't know enough about things from Japan to make any requests.

How do you feel about nail wraps?
Never tried them, but they look super cool!
if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
​I love all knitted/crocheted things, I have a drawer at work dedicated to sweaters and arm warmers because my office is so bloody cold all the time. I prefer darker colours, jewel tones and/or neutrals but I'm pretty open. I love scarves and arm/handwarmers in particular. And socks. I'll never say no to a great pair of socks.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
​River Song from Doctor Who was my gut choice because she's so confident and sexy, two things that I'm not very good at being. Plus I have a major crush on Alex Kingston.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
​I don't actually know if I would go anywhere. Don't want to start a paradox and all that.

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
​I honestly don't know.

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best.
Her work is beautiful! I'm down for anything!

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?
No thanks - they wouldn't get enough use for me.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
​Not that I can think of

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
​I can't think of a spell I need to do right now. I'm in a pretty good place.

Do you like poetry?
In song lyrics yes, but other than that not so much.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
​I do have a lot of nerdy things around my apartment to begin with - other nerdy friends would not be turned away.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
​I love yarn - I've never made anything with super special yarn but since I've really gotten into crocheting I'm always down for more yarn.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?
​I'm always in support of places that promote safer sex and are sex positive. That or donations in the name of public health initiatives are great. Please do not donate to the Goldwater Institute for me - my PhD research focuses on their organization a little and I particularly dislike them.

Please provide wishes from the last two updates?
TBA


9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
​I once got a beautiful soap in a jar from there - it was amazing!!!! I'm always down for more or trying new bath and body products

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
​I can't think of anything specific right now.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?
​I do dabble in podcasts - I really like Make Out With Him, Sawbones, Stuff you Should Know. But I'm not into any of them enough to love merch.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
​I love Nui Cobalt!!! They have the most beautiful talismans, I'm open to anything from there - except earrings because my ears are too sensitive to wear earrings.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
I love a goo candle, but shipping to Canada may be very pricey.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
THOSE ARE GORGEOUS!!!! I love nail polishes and I don't have any holos or chromes because I often just wear solid crème colours.
9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
​I love stationary - I don't use stickers very much, but I love good notebooks/journals and pens!

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Or Haus of Gloi?
​I've never tried Cocoa Pink but again open to try. I love Haus of Gloi - their pumpkin butters are amazing!!! I love moon dog from them and am definitely willing to try almost anything.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
Unfortunately there's no where to put it in my condo and it can't go on the outside of my front door due to condo regulations
Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
​I love lush - that lip tint looks nice as does that black cat bubble bar.

9/7/17

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update?
​I've never tried any Moonalisa - I'm open to trying anything though

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground? Not a coffee fan
- Flavor and roast preferences?
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors?
- Loose leaf or tea bags?
- Anything specific you don't like?
- Are you in need of any gadgetry?
​I LOVE tea!!! I have an obscenely large collections - and I'll drink almost anything. I prefer loose leaf, but will not turn up my nose at bagged tea.

The only types of tea that I will not drink are things with pineapple (obviously due to my allergy) and chamomile (it makes my throat itchy).

I like the ghost one and the little tree guy
9/26/17

The unicorns are cute, the slouch hat is nice, and the owl fingerless gloves too
What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Tiger Lily!!!! , Shroud, Yew Trees

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
I don't think this will be something I would get, but no real bones or fur or animal parts, wet specimens, things like that. That would completely squick me. Like I said, I don't think I would get something like that, but worth mentioning.

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store
Ok, yes, I admit, the Lestat one caught my eye
Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things?
I've been seeing lacy eye masks in several stores recently. Not ure if Claire's has them, but they're pretty
Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?

9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?

I liked the one called "Toil and Trouble"
Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
Some of the wall hangings were pretty
Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.
plain chocolate with walnuts is my favorite
do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)
I like spicy but not too much -think chiptle or poblano pepper, not habanero

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
I updated my wishlist, but Chocolate Chai Cupcake, Pupmkin Spice Cathedrdal, a couple others I can't think of right now

9/24/17

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
Not really, but I do sometimes keep one or two if I like the art
Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
Oh wow, there's several that I like on there! Tiger Lily, Pomegranate Prince, Wishing Adeline and the Shooting Stars, Heart Hill Forest
Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
Hedgehogs, as I mentioned in my ?aire, I love hedgehog all the things! Owl is my spirit animal, and I like dragons, unicorns, and gryphons.

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)
I answered this in the thread too. I couldn't go when they were here because I had no money for a ticket, but I collect keychains,/pendants/pins from each DM show I've been to. It's been a different thing from each tour, so I'm not sure what they'll have this time around, but a keychain or something like that would be really loved!

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
I think I'd like SN: Bluebonnet, since I have family that was affected by Harvey. I might like to smell Take a Knee and Flor de Maga, but they are not must-haves for me.

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?
I'm always open to ideas in that direction, but I'm nowhere near living that way yet!

9/23/17

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
I use Wallflowers, they have some cute Halloween ones right now. Any of the pumpkin scents, of course, also, Japanese Cherry Blossom, Sweater Weather, Lavender Eucalyptus are favorite scents too.
I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like?
All the crystals! All of them, you hear me? Seriously, I kinda collect stones and crystals and I love them all. If one speaks to you, go for it!
Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
​Yes please!

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Chocolate chip, no nuts
Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)
Sounds interesting, but I'm good right now, thanks
Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
Sounds intriguing

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
I think I'm good on honey right now

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
I don't use jam much, but a small jar would be appreciated

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
I'd be willing to try it, but I don't know if I would want a whole jar.

I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.
I like dehydrated fruit.

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases?
Bags are always appreciated

9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
Sure, sounds yummy!
do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
My apartment tub is small, so I never really take baths.
What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?
I have a Google Pixel, I have a case for it, but I would really like one of those cases that are meant to go in your purse that look like a checkbook cover or billfold kind of thing. Might be a bit pricey for the swap, though.

9/21/17

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
Well, I love pumpkin spice, so those lollys sound kinda cool. I don't eat a ton of candy though.
Are any witchees into coloring books?
This was my question, so yes!

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
There's a lot of super cute stuff there, but nothing in particular stands out

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
There's just me, so setting for 8, obviously! LOL, I'm kidding of course. Like I said, just me, so 1 setting would be lovely.

9/20/17

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?
Well, Hamilton, I've never seen or heard it, so I'd like to. And I love Hedwig and the Angry Inch, but I don't have the soundtrack (either the movie or the stage production).

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
BPAL's Broadway sounds lovely, and if there are any con exclusive Funko pops.

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
A cowboy, maybe?

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
There's a lot of cute stuff on that site. There was a smallish crossbody bag.

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
I can’t think of any

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!
I need something to hang on a wall. I would also probably gravitate toward furniture right now, but I don't expect my witch to send me a chair or coffee table!

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I like ThinkGeek, but nothing is jumping out at me right now

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
I seriously love midCentury Modern. But I also love heavy Southwest colonial wood and metal pieces, sort of a southern gothic thing, which is probably different from what others think of southern gothic. But I also am pretty minimalist with my decorating too, I start to get anxious when I have too much “stuff” lying around.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
Nope, I don't use aprons

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll)
That is kinda cute

9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
Yep, I love socks. I susally only wear them in fall and winter, but I love trouser socks for work, in brown black and grey, with different patterns, and ankle or knee socks for casual with designs on them. Like I have a pair with hedgehogs, And I always get a pair of Halloween socks from Target. And I have a pair that says “Carpe the Fuck out of this Diem” Stuff like that. The really short ones though, that just come up over the ankle bones, tend to slip down into my shoes.

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Absolutely! Share the book love!

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Absolutely! Share the BPAL love!

So what are your favorite fandoms?
Firefly, Buffy, Supernatural, MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

9/17/17

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
Oooh, lavender wand!

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
I read Tarot. I have several decks, and I covet several more. The ones I covet the most right now are pretty pricey though (The Tessera Oracle and the Last Unicorn Tarot on Kickstarter), but there are some on my Amazon wishlist, under “Occult Books”. Oops, forgot I made that list private. I moved them out into the main wishlist. Also, the Golden Thread Tarot here: https://labyrinthos.co/products/golden-thread-tarot-deck-cards

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
Sure! Someone once compared getting a reading done to going out to eat. You can do it at home, but it's nice to have someone else do it for a change. It also can give a little insight you may miss, being too close to the issue.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
I can always use chime candles, of any color.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
Dead Man's Bones, Haunted Woods, Moonrise Bonfire, October Road, Pumpkin Chai Latte, Samhain Hard Cider – I've never heard of this shop before and whoever thought of this question is an evil enabler, lol

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?
I think I covered this in my questionnaire, but Smoky quartz, carnelian, garnet, tourmaline

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
All of the above, Depends on my mood.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
Yes, but I don't really cosplay. Possibly because I haven't got a decent costume.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
Moana all the things! Also Maleficent but cartoon Maleficent, not Angelina Jolie Maleficent

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
Ravenclaw. Luna is my homegirl.

How do you feel about chokers?
No thanks.

9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
The banner is cute. I like vintage, or vintage-looking 60s and 70s stuff, like “popcorn” decorations and the Beistle cutouts. These are things I grew up with. I know they can fetch a pretty penny though. Examples: http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAIR-OF-HANDMADE-MELTED-PLASTIC-POPCORN-HALLOWEEN-DECORATIONS-WITCH-PUMPKIN/352170862367?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D47507%26meid%3Dc9f9d5aeed6e4a54991abeaadd6188cb%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D352114387532&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850 And

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?
I live right up the road from one, and love pumpkin spice all the things. So no need to get me anything special from Trader Joe's

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I am very poor cook, so anything that could help in this department would be nice!

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
I like seashells and sandollars, things like that.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
No thanks


9/14/17

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?
I don't live with any animals or small humans

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
Vampire Vanilla Bat

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things) My wishlist is pretty up to date on scents. I covet the Last Unicorn Pendant though

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
Not much of a gamer, but I do play World of Warcraft, so I like cute WoW stuff

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy! Any of those are gorgeous, but I especially like the leafy one.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? - Yes, I do enjoy a good beer. Hefeweizens, chocolate stouts, blondes. I really don't care for IPAs, though. I tend to drink a lot of local breweries - Michigan has several, so the most mainstream beer I've had in a looong time is Bell's Oberon. I like ciders, too. Strongbow and Crispin are my favorite commercial brands.

Like booze? What kinds? Yep, Vodka and whiskey are my go-to's of the hard liquor variety. TIto's and Jameson's for preference.

Like Wine? What kinds? This too. (My god, I sound like a lush, lol.) I prefer pinot noir and malbecs in reds and pinot gris/grigio in whites. Not too fond of blush or sparkling wines.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors! That sounds fun. I wouldn't really know how to attach them, but I have wanted to do some wilder color in my hair for a while, and this sounds like a fun option to add color without a dye job

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies? I don't make a point of watching them, but I like the classic monster movies like Dracula and the Wolfman. I like newer classics like Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic. I love the Evil Dead series, Bruce Campbell is groovy. Fan-made merch would be fun.

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
ooOOooo they have liquid soap! And Rosemary Patchouli sounds right up my alley!
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
I like all the classics: ghosts, black cats, pumpkins, skellys, witches, etc.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
I do eat candy, just not a whole ton of it. I think I mentioned the Halloween SweetTarts in the ?aire. Local treats would be fun. I like chocolate, caramel not so much.
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
No thanks

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
I had no idea what this was, so I had to google it. If my witch spent the kind of time involved in making some thing like that, I would love it
Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
Things like this tend to fall right out of my hair, it is baby-fine and even though I like them (especially bugs for some reason. I have a couple of sparkly bug hairpins and barrettes) I almost never use them because they always fall out.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Any and all. Local stuff is always fun!

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
I don't feel like I'd have time to devote to a subscription magazine, but there are a few boxes that might be fun. I remember seeing one for tea before, and Darby Smart has a mystery DIY box to do crafts with. Also Pusheen Box cos everyone loves Pusheen!

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
Um, probably not. Well, there was a matte deep indigo blue lipstick in the most recent Avon catalog...
How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
I still listen to CDs a lot. And the CDs I really like I rip to my computer. I do have an Amazon Prime so I have Prime Music too, but mostly CDs.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
I have a Kindle but I prefer actual books. A scary classic horror book would be great!

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
I do all of the above. Incense is mostly used for ritual use. Candles and wax tarts are for fun. My wax tart burner, however, is a small Pyrex bowl on an electric candle warmer. It works, but it ain't pretty. Oh - also I use B&BW Wall Flowers. They had a couple of really cute Halloween-themed light up ones I saw. And I saw a really cute Halloweenie candle holder at Target too.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
I am pretty good on these. However, I'm a beader. I can always use Beadalon, crimps, and clasps.

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
Aggretsuko is my spirit animal! Also, I love the San-X Nyanko. I call them "food kitties." They kind of look like the kitties from Neko Atsume but they are dressed up as food, like this: https://mooglegurl.deviantart.com/art/Nyanko-Burger-and-Friends-121408036

How do you feel about nail wraps?
I don't do my nails
if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
I have never had anything handknit, and I covet it all! Not allergic to any fibers that I know of.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
OK, there is a book I love, called Waking the Moon by Elizabeth Hand. The main character is called Sweeney Cassidy, and her two best friends are basically earthly incarnation of the Goddess and her lover. But it's not all love and puppies. Think more Cybele and Attis. Anyway, Sweeney doesn't really understand it, but she knows she loves her friends, and to see something real, and dark,and huge like that to to try to stand up to it - she really spoke to me.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
OK, obscure book reference again. Time Cat by Lloyd Alexander. It's a kid's book, about a boy and his cat. Cats have nine different lives they can visit. They go to Ancient Egypt, Roman Britain, Feudal Japan, Pre-Christian Ireland, Germany During the Burning Times, Peru during the Conquest, and Colonial America. I'm missing a couple. Anyway, this would be almost my ideal time trip.
If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best.
I've always loved the Sugar Skull pendants
Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
This would be really nice, but wouldn't it be hard to get measurements and such?

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?
Since I haven't settled on a costume yet, probably not. Maybe some generic things that could be used for multiple costumes.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
Yes, For emotional healing, for letting go, for unburdening

Do you like poetry?
Yes, some

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
Sure!

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
It would be wasted on me, I'm afraid. I've never learned to do anything with yarn.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?
Someone did this for e i a previous SW, and it meant the world to me. My charities of choice are the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.

Please provide wishes from the last two updates?
Liliths and Weenies are in my wishlist


9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
Mama Didn't listen So I told the Bees, Owlett's End,
Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
Anything quintessentially British - something from Boots, or a Tube Keychain, or Earl Grey tea
Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?
I probably would want to read Welcome to Night Vale, but I've never listened to any of the podcasts. I find podcasts kind of hard to listen to.
Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
I could definitely use a Money Candle!
Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
Sisterhood of the Moon
ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
I must be non-hip or something, cos I really am not into the holo or glittery nailpolishes. I just like a plain creme color.
9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
I don't much use this kind of thing, but I do really covet an Oberon Designs journal one day

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Or Haus of Gloi?
Sure, try me in my favorite scents - things with vanilla, patchouli, sandalwood, frankincense
Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
I have one now, but the ones that were pictured were cute

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
Honestly, I always wait for the Lush Christmas Collection. Love me some Snowcake!

9/7/17

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground?
- Flavor and roast preferences?
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors?
- Loose leaf or tea bags?
- Anything specific you don't like?
- Are you in need of any gadgetry?
I drink tea, I don't really drink coffee. I can do bags or loose tea, I have a couple of different things to do loose leaf in. Like all kinds but prefer black or green. No gadgets needed at the moment.

9/6/17

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
Everyone can always use moar storage, right?

I have not tried anything,not sure I'd be into anything
What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever...
I just got my first smartphone this year, so any apps that are fun or useful would be appreciated

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
Zoinks! Jinkies! Scooby's groovy, but Scrappy needs to go home.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
I don't really wear a ton of makeup.
I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
I might be interested in a sample, it looks interesting.

9/4/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1
They're adorable but I can't fit TeeTurtle

Notes I like - the rambling essay

Notes I tend to like:

When in doubt: Chocolate. Or vetiver and violet. Or tuberose.

Gourmand (Almond, Bread, Butter, Dark Chocolate, Cream/milk, Honey, Maple, brown sugar)
Snacks (Almond, Apple, Cucumber, Malt, Nuts)
Citrus (Esp. Bergamont)
Florals (Cotton, Elder, Lavender, pale Roses, Violet, Water lily, Ylang-ylang)
White Florals (Esp. Tuberose, or Magnolia)
[with all florals- I prefer them greener ]
Aquatic (Kelp, sea spray, commercial "ocean" "rain" and "water" notes- I love the smell of the natural beach and ocean)
Green[/i & Spices (Vetiver, cooking herbs, Tomato leaf, tea, some peppery notes)

Other stuff: rum, skin & white musks, corn (sweet corn, not fritos)

Literally every other fragrance group else not specified is kinda of a mystery. I know they're largely base notes. I'm pretty sure I can't smell some of them at all. (Example: I can't smell sandalwood very well! Same with Paprika. Weird, right?)   ----   Please see my Dislikes for my allergies
