Dislikes - 2017

Known fragranceallergies:
cinnamon / cassia
olive pollen/fruit (Anaphylaxis bad)
sage

General dislikes:
Incense
COCONUT (I despise anything 'tropical coconut'/suntan lotion/Piña colada)
Dark musks (white & skin musk OK)
Crystal sugar notes
Red fruits that turn into "fruit punch"

Iris & Orris get powerfully amped on my skin & give me a headache   Mind, I'll like anything I'm not allergic to if balanced well with the right things. That said, I will never like these:
Brimstone
Snake Oil (and all of its derivatives in the snake pit)

I adore larimar but it's hard to find and kind of expensive.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? yes

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.

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? Samsung Galaxy 3 phone, 2 kindles (a Fire and an old Keyboard).

What are some things you do NOT want to receive? really, I don't need knick knacks or stuff that needs dusting. I don't need makeup, I have plenty. Jewelry is great, but I don't get to leave the house much anymore so feel kinda bad about getting new ones.

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 I like Fitzgerald in Paris and the Reader. oh, and Starman!

Any love of pirates or SCA?
--only as far as "Talk like a Pirate Day" and dressing up for the local Ren Faire. I always wanted to join the SCA but when I had the energy, I didn't have the money or the time. Now I might get the money together, but instead of 3 kids I have 2 aging parents so no time or energy now either.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
--a Jane Austen tenner from the UK.
Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
--My grandfather used to send us covers of the new releases when I was growing up, until he retired. He was postmaster of his town for almost 50 years.

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!

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?

--I wish I could speak in person with Eleanor Roosevelt, because she embodied the spirit of giving and humanity I'd like to emulate in my own life.
If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
--Eleanor Roosevelt, Molly Ivins, and Hillary Clinton. I think we could have some interesting conversations while we tried scents.

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 love Alicia's work, especially the earrings! She always puts them on sterling silver leverbacks for me because my hands can't handle the little stoppers which prevent the hook types from coming out of my earlobes. I like silver earrings best, and nothing longer than 1-1/2 to 2" at the most.
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?

--a Jane Austen £10 note.

my favorite 2-cup tea pot has a huge chip on the spout, and it's no longer made. So I'm kind of looking for another. It's hard finding a truly small teapot, though.
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?
--a small wooden box, decorated or not as my Witch decided, but just large enough for 7-8 bottles, would be wonderful.
Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
- What are your faves if you are?
- If you aren't would you like to try something?
--no, thanks.
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...
--Hamilton.
9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
--Not a big fan, but if I had to liken myself to a character, it would be Thelma.
How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
--I really don't use much make up, mostly a little Elf charcoal eyeliner because I seem to be losing my eyelashes.

Switch Witch '17: Still Happening (i.e., Part 2)

Witch!

Hopefully you've seen my first entry.
I've decided to make a second entry since that first one was really long.
So here goes...


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 just got a Samsung Galaxy S7... as in, yesterday! Before that, I didn't even have a smartphone. I have some kind of iPad through work, but I don't know exactly which type. And I'm really tired now so I'm probably not going to measure my laptop right now, though I think I did in my SW blog entry from last year. I can try to update this entry with information about the work iPad and my laptop's measurements. But I had to get kind of a goofy case for my phone yesterday because the store only had 3 in stock. I looked at cases on etsy and I like these 3: Geometric, Geometrical, Mountains. So anyway, interested....

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 don't think I'd use a dice bag or pencil bag, but the other things sound nice.

Let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.
Sure.

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
I personally would eat everything but the peach, but my husband would like it, so any of these would be fine.

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
Sure.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
Sure, but small amounts.

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.)
Definitely.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
Zucchini, as pumpkin would have to have something else going for it too since I'm not the hugest pumpkin fan ever. I'm actually curious to try chocolate zucchini bread because I only make a "very zucchini" type that has 3 cups of zucchini in it and no chocolate.

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?
Not sure. Wouldn't mind something paperweight-ish (I just mean like, something that would sit by itself on a table rather than only looking good with a bunch of other similar stuff) if you see something you think I'd like.

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
Okay, I took a look. I like the Mentha stuff decently, you could get me the bar soap, lip balm (not lip shine or lip tint, those don't work as well for my purposes), or bodywash/shower gel (I forget which one it's classifed as, but I'm sure you know what I mean).
Other thoughts: candles: would try spiced coconut, lavender cedar, or clove varieties bodywashes/shower gels: almond milk, cocoshea coconut, cocoshea honey, magic in the air, sensual amber, french lavender & honey


Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
Too tired to look up my past answer to this that I usually just copy and paste every year. I think I say hedgehogs/bees/deer/foxes if I remember right (can update if I left something out). I also like axolotls lately. I don't usually want stuff with mythological animals unless I link to something specific or you see something very like something I've already shown interest in, BUT... the mascot of my new (since 8/1/17) workplace is the unicorn. Trying to roll with it, I got a shiny necklace that said "UNICORN" like a nameplate or something but then I broke it the first day I wore it to work. The thing is, we're supposed to be like tough intimidating unicorns and not cutesy delicate ones (and the color scheme is like a medium blue and white, not like a fun rainbow). So I kinda felt like I had to mention that since mythological animals were brought up.

Ten Thousand Villages:
contessa earrings
panorama earrings
dynasty earrings
cats tea towel
dish carrier
coconut soap
dove garland

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)?
The categories mentioned don't particularly appeal to me, but some of the tote bags look nice, like performers, dark unicorn or cats of ulthar.

I already talked about stationery, but I can answer a couple of other questions that were related:
Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
We have several wall calendars in the house so that's a thought. I'm not really into ones with inspirational messages or cute animal photos if that helps.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
Sure, those would work, I use them both at home and at school.


Weenies are live! anything you are lusting after?
Yes, a few! I am going to get myself decants of I Heard Many Things in Hell, The Mournful Influence of the Unperceived Shadow, and Nebulaphobia.
Dear Witch, You could get me decants (or even half-decants, honestly because I'm mostly just curious about these) of (in rough order of how interested I am): Cinnamon Chai Cupcake Pumpkin Spice Snake Oil Pumpkin Spice Cathedral Pumpkin Spice Opium Poppy Dead Leaves, Coconut, & Champaca Dead Leaves, Tuscan Leather, White Amber, & Mimosa Blossom Dead Leaves, Violet Candy, & Sugar Crystals


What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Well, you asked for it. Our Lady of Pain (I have a bottle already, still about 75% full, but haven't been able to locate a backup because they get snapped up super-quickly) Goth Queen (might even be for sale on the forum right now because there's a sales post that mentions it, but I haven't been able to look because the sales post also mentions the word "lace" and apparently pages with that word are blocked at my work ) The Laughter of Loki (all I have is a decant that I paid about $10 for... I wish I wasn't too hipster-y to get this when it came out)


Freshly released! Who wants it? I can't be the only one! (Ask Baba Yaga by Taisia Kitaiskaia)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1449486819/
Hmm... maybe. I think I used to read this column on the Hairpin website back in the day.

And... it looks like I missed a couple of pertinent questions somewhere along the way:

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
I guess two if possible so that my husband could join the fun. But if you find something that there's just one of, that'd be fine too.

Starbucks collectibles:
I don't think I've ever bought anything from Starbucks other than drinks, though once in awhile I admire the tchotchkes. But I don't think I really need/want any of that stuff right now unless you find the thing that you know is absolutely perfect for me or something. I'd use a Starbucks gift card though... I mean, I only go once a month or less, but am always surprised by how much the drinks cost since I only get fancy stuff there as it's an occasional treat and not an every-day sort of thing.

*Just a note that I edited the Bath & Body Works question above*

*Also, I thought of some possibly-under-$10 things I'd like... I think I said I'd come back to that in my original questionnaire. I just finished up a jar of Penzey's Taco Seasoning, but maybe I'd go for their Bold Taco Seasoning next time instead... it's pretty inexpensive still. Another small thing I need is page flags to use to mark recipes. Currently I just tear up post-its but obviously it'd be nicer/easier to have something that was already in small strips to use.

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?
Yep, the interesting lip balms seem to be sold out right now. Out of the sold out ones, Earl Grey, Lavender Sweet Orange, Sweet Milk & Clove, and Vanilla Coffee sound cool. For currently-available, I guess I'd pick Orange Clove.


Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update?
Cool, it's finally up! I kept checking earlier and seeing "page not found" and wondering if it was just me. So, I'd try the whipped soap in Blood Orange Marshmallow, Ghost Puffs, or Spider Silk I know the Butterbombs go ridic-fast but I'd be into Amber Vanilla, Leaf Pile, or Sleepy Time Finally, Cathedral Park sounds like a nice candle


​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?
VioletChaos! I've had the pleasure of being VioletChaos' Witchee twice already, so I doubt this question is for me this time, but... I think I've already been pretty clear about wanting to try local honey and liking soaps and candles. Not sure about the BBQ or hot sauces... being a Texan, I'm kinda well stocked already when it comes to those two condiments. Even so, if there's a barbecue sauce that you are sure I'd love, I'll give it a try.

​Witchee, I'm about to place an order with Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com
Desert Nude, Sensual, and Sterling dusts look pretty nice. But I only wear eyeshadow a handful of times a year and already own several colors, so I'm not sure if it would make sense for me to receive them?

Witchee, would you be interested in anything from Strobe Cosmetics (?
Druid looks pretty neat, as do Fit for a Queen and Sea of Ghosts. But... see my prior answer about how often I actually wear eyeshadow.

Also, How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?
Fine I guess. I've been buying HK merchandise occasionally for 20+ years at this point, so I don't need a bunch more of it, but one or two interesting things would be fine.

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/
Sure... I'd just decided on a couple of decants to get for myself (and maybe a bath bomb), but realized I'd sort of overlooked the Pomegranate Clove bath oil, which could actually be really nice. So that's a thought!

Would any witchees be interested in NASA swag?
Wouldn't mind a shirt or magnets. I also remember my husband really liking things that said "Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory" if that helps.

The new 13 isn't so much my thing, but the Lunacy sounds very nice. Trouble is, I don't really wear the super-foodie scents that I have, even when I love them. So it probably wouldn't make sense for me to have a bottle, but it would be cool to try a decant.

Switch Witch Help, Halloween 2017

10/5/17

Would any witchees be interested in NASA swag? I'm now super-close to Marshall Space Flight Center and will be visiting the space center with my kiddo pretty regularly. If so, what would you like? Clothes, a mug, magnets, a plush Snoopy wearing a flight suit? Thanks, but I already have plenty of NASA swag.

Does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/ Perhaps a Whipped Soap in Wail of the Banshee, Jack and the Devil, or Witch’s Cottage.

10/3/17

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/ Perhaps the Crimson Pumpkin Floss or Purple Pumpkin Floss perfumes. I don’t use hair glosses, atmo sprays, or bath oils.
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 any of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market? They all sound interesting.

Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com Probably not, since I virtually never wear cosmetics (thank you heat & humidity). Plus these look like I’d have to do some work mixing and assembling.

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)? Not the glittery stuff, but the Bay of Dragons collection looks interesting. The problem is that I don’t wear eyeshadow because of the Florida humidity.

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff? Unmoved. ‘Way back in 1979 my college roommate was into Hello Kitty, and I thought I was too old for it then.

Would you like to get some favorite recipes? Perhaps. As I’ve mentioned, I’m doing essentially no cooking at the moment, but if I ever get started cooking again, it might be nice to have some favorite, tested recipes.

Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut? Not really my style, I’m afraid.

9/30/17

Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list The scents all sound at least a little bit interesting. I use Haus of Gloi’s Whipped Soap once in a while. The Bathing Dust looks interesting. And hey!, there’s a tote bag!

9/27/17

How do you feel about

these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions Cute, but not something I would want.

9/26/17

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/



None of those specifically, although I like Twilight’s work and have bought a cowl from her.

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs? The only one I am sort of looking for is Monastery in the Mountains. (There’s a sad tale there of the imp I stepped on before I had a chance to try it.)

What are some things you do NOT want to receive? A live puppy, kitten, cockatiel, bearded lizard, or other pet.

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 They’re nice, but the only one that appeals to me is The Reader.

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? No, thank you, I'm highly unlikely to wear them.

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors? The ones with orange flavors/scents might interest me. Fortunately, they seem to be sold out of pretty much everything that appeals to me. I’m still looking for a good lip balm now that Haunt is on indefinite hiatus. I like that these do not have beeswax in them.

9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? I seem to have already loaded up on 2018 calendars and planners.
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? I’m a sucker for stationery, but I don’t care for the cute (kawaii) type. I like Crane & Co.’s correspondence cards and similar items.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads? Office supplies are another weakness of mine. I might use Post-It note pads, but I already have enough cubes to last me a lifetime (as opposed to the standard pads that I could keep in a desk drawer at work).

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 Nothing particularly catches my eye, although I don’t dislike her work.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/ Not particularly, although I know it’s for a good cause.

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) Probably all of these materials except for the duct tape. dishcloths? Knitted or crocheted. Scarf/shawl? Yes. Hat? Probably not. They tend to cause bad hair days for me. Bag? Yes. Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.) See my questionnaire for color preferences.

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 don’t really collect Starbucks gear. But if you come across one of their Chinese Year of the Rooster Bearistas from earlier this year . . . . .

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch. That would be good. I like chocolate and butterscotch. I don’t much care for nuts in fudge.

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 a lot of spicy foods as long as they have some flavor other than just the heat, and aren’t so spicy that they wipe out all other flavors and make my mouth go numb.

What would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus??? I haven’t taken the time to study (or even glance at) the Weenies.

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? It’s more like I allow them to accumulate. I wouldn’t claim to collect them.

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ Nice enough, but mostly not my thing.

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? Orcas, cats (domestic, most wild species, especially Scottish wildcats, Pallas cats, snow leopards, tigers), dragons

Would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!) No, thank you, not my thing.

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)? So interested that I think I’ll just place an order. (Sorry . . . . .)

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? Now I feel guilty for not doing any of this.

9/23/17

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/ I generally don’t use Bath & Body Works products.

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? Probably more in the form of specimens than tumbled stones. Arfvedsonite, larvikite, or any of the Greenland stones (nuummite, thulite, tugtupite). See also my answer to the favorite gemstones question on the questionnaire.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? Perhaps, and I’d probably prefer Pumpkin to Zucchini.

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? Classic Toll House cookies (chocolate chip), with real butter, real vanilla extract, and real chocolate chips. Also seven-layer cookies.

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 might be able to use some. I do use Badger Balm’s muscle rub regularly. But I recall reacting to Tiger Balm (skin quickly started turning red).

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur? Not particularly, or only a small amount.

Want some honey from the bees on our property? Sure local, known-not-to-be counterfeit honey is fine. Just not a whole lot because of the sugar.

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. A small amount. (Again, concerned about the sugar.)

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. Perhaps in small quantities. I usually don’t eat chilies straight (as opposed to disguised in a salsa or other dish), and I’m leery of garlic because it really sticks with me after eating.

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. That would probably be good, although I have to be cautious of dried fruits because of the concentrated sugars.

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I might use a pen/pencil bag or tote bag. I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases? No, thank you.
9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm Probably not.
Do you like to take baths? Yes, although I usually take showers. if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above? Usually salts or foamy things. Not oils; I hate cleaning up the tub afterwards.

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 don’t need any phone or laptop sleeves, decals, cases, etc.


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, pumpkin spice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc? See’s is also my favorite, but I did not care for last year’s Caramel Apple Scotchmallow – the regular Scotchmallow is better, in my opinion. Pumpkin spice truffles might be OK. No lollypops, please, I usually don’t get around to eating them. My regular favorites are Dark Butterchew, Butterscotch Square, Raspberry Cream, Orange Cream, Apricot Delight, Dark Cocoanut, Butterscotch Chew, Scotchmallow, and Tipperary.

Are any witchees into coloring books? I have not gotten into them, no.

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)? Not really.

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household? One, for me.

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? When it comes to Broadway musicals, I tend to be somewhat of a traditionalist. Give me some Rodgers & Hammerstein (The King and I, The Sound of Music, South Pacific, Oklahoma!, etc.) or Andrew Lloyd Webber (Evita, Cats, Starlight Express, The Phantom of the Opera, etc.). There are also other classic musicals that I like, such as Lerner & Loewe’s Brigadoon, My Fair Lady, and Camelot; and Annie Get Your Gun. CDs or merch would be OK; I do admit to buying a t-shirt when I saw Wicked last December.

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there? I haven’t checked out the BPAL/BPTP items yet, and I can’t think of anything else I’d like from NYCC.

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? Nothing that I’m aware of.

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)? Not really.

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items. Pelindaba Lavender (listed on my questionnaire). Lola Frocks (too pricy for this exchange). If you’re in northwest Washington state, Earthenworks Gallery and The Wood Merchant in La Conner are good.

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! Handcrafted jewelry with unusual stones or enamelwork, or perhaps beadwork. Kinetic sculpture, the kind with ball bearings that fall down through a variety of different paths. Wooden boxes made from exotic woods. Or maybe handcrafted wood furniture, since money is no object. Handcrafted, leather-bound journals (http://ionahandcraftedbooks.com/ , http://www.mindseyejournals.com/ ).
9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com I generally like Think Geek’s stuff, although there’s a fair amount of it I wouldn’t use. I have bought from them before. I don’t have this one yet: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/hugl/?rrec=true&pfm=Recs_NoSearchResults_hugl_1 .

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? Nothing comes to mind right off.

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...) Nothing comes to mind.

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. English Gentleman’s Library: floor-to-ceiling, built-in, wooden bookcases (full, of course), leather Chesterfield sofa and chairs, a scattering of tables & a desk, lots of lamps, probably a fireplace, and a few paintings, or at least one over the fireplace.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? I already have a fair number of aprons and tend not to use them, but a cool new apron would be nice. I don’t have a crafting apron and might be able to use one.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) Not really.

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? Yes, I wear socks, mainly crew to mid-calf length. As I put on my questionnaire, I have large calves so a lot of knee-high and higher socks won’t go over them. I mostly stick to cotton with just a little stretchy stuff mixed in. I avoid acrylic, just because. Non-scratchy wool (merino, etc.) is fine. I’m sure that bamboo would be OK, I just haven’t had any socks made with that material.

Would you be open to previously-loved books? As I said on my questionnaire, I’m really picky about the physical condition of my books. I’d prefer them in like-new condition.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? That would be OK.

So what are your favorite fandoms? I don’t really have any fandoms, although Harry Potter stuff would not be taken amiss.

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! Lots of things from Provence that I’d like, starting with lavender. I also like Provencal-print textiles.

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 already have way more Tarot and Oracle decks than I need. I received a set of runes in a past swap, but if you find another futhark set in a neat material other than amethyst (which is what my current set is), I don’t thing that two sets of runes is too much. I also already have a scrying mirror, which I’ve never gotten around to trying.

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? Perhaps.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? Yes, if you come across some nice crystals, or a nifty hand-crafted wand, or something from Nui Cobalt Designs.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? Perhaps. Some of the fruity-scented ones sound interesting.

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones? Just so I don’t contradict myself, here’s what I put on my questionnaire: High-quality tanzanite, amethyst, ametrine, smoky quartz, garnet, fire agate, opal (white, black, fire), pearls, morganite, chrome diopside, sapphire (all colors), moldavite, pink or blue or black (or watermelon) tourmaline, andalusite, spessartite, pietersite, kunzite, apatite. Or in other words, nearly all of them!

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? I love jewelry, mostly mid-range in size. I tend not to wear very tiny pieces or extremely large ones. And although my inner magpie is drawn to flashy and gaudy, I tend not to actually wear those pieces.

Any love of pirates or SCA? Pirates, no, not really. SCA, perhaps, although I haven’t been around them since my college days. That was a very long time ago.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? Not off the top of my head – plus, I live only an hour and a half away from Disney World.

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? Not a Potterhead, although I love the books. I’d probably fit best in Ravenclaw; I haven’t done any of the sorting quizzes.

How do you feel about chokers? Not for me, not to wear. I would feel too literally like I was choking. (Yes, I have experience with past rounds of choker fashionability.)

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? Perhaps. Probably moreso for the vertical type.

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? The closest Trader Joes’s is about an hour and a half away, so not really close. I might be interested in the seasonal pumpkin goodies.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? I don’t really do any cooking or baking at the moment. I’d like to, but it just doesn’t happen. I don’t really have anything on my kitchen wishlist at the moment.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? Nothing in particular that I can think of, unless Ocean City has good salt water taffy.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice. I honestly don’t have anything to suggest.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? Yes!!!


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? No kids or pets.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? Probably, although I haven’t looked at the update yet. I placed my last order the day before the Halloween scents went up, primarily to avoid even more temptation.

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) I haven’t looked at the Trading Post site in a while, so I can’t say.

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? Not a gamer, so nothing to suggest here.
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? n/a

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)?
Simple eyelet scarf OK Chevron scarf Meh Lacy and fuzzy No. I’d snag the heck out of it. Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Perhaps Leafy! Nice, but still at risk of snagging.

Like beer? No. What styles most appeal to you? Gose/Gueze is about the only type I can drink. I just flat-out dislike other styles.

Like booze? Somewhat What kinds? Got any good craft distilleries nearby? (And maybe some of their merchandise would be the best bet – mailing/shipping booze is so problematic.)

Like Wine? Yes! What kinds? Mostly red – Pinot Noir, Syrah, Meritage blends. Does vintage port count?

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 something I’d use, but they sound intriguing. Plus my hair is short, so if they fell any distance at all they’d be much longer than my hair!

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 have any Halloween movie favorites, although I’ve heard so much love for Practical Magic that I wouldn’t mind getting a DVD of it to check it out.

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ Perhaps. I tend not to use sugar scrubs or liquid soap.

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? I like pumpkins, ravens, leaves/branches, etc. – nature-type things. Definitely not anything gory, and I don’t like a lot of the hag-stereotype-witch things.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? Dark chocolate is my favorite. I am diabetic now, so quality over quantity is the way I should go. (And no, don’t go the sugar-free route. In my opinion, those tend to be inferior quality and I’ve heard horrid things about the side effects of a particular non-sugar sweetener. Look up the reviews for the sugar-free gummi bears on Amazon.) And specialty chocolate definitely intrigues me.

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? Desk toys interest me, although I’m not interested in fidget spinners.

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? I haven’t got into zentangle as a practice, but if someone were to do a nice art piece, I would probably like it.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? As I put on my questionnaire, if anything my hair spits out hairclips and ornaments. I’m not sure I could get a fascinator or mini hat to stay in place, although I love the idea.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? Yes, all of the above.

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? I already have several subscription boxes coming. And asking for a renewal on my Crone’s Crate would be a bit much.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? Black lipstick, perhaps. I think my Portland Black Lipstick Co. one has dried up and died of old age. I probably wouldn’t use any of the other things.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? Generally on CD, although I think I still have my old 8-track player around here somewhere. I almost never use streaming services, and I don’t trust electronic downloads (iTunes, etc.) to stay accessible.

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? Physical books, definitely. Kindle format only if the book is not otherwise available. And please, no scary horror books (or true crime, either).

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? Probably candles first choice, then wax tarts. I tend not to get around to burning incense. I don’t have a favorite brand or scent. The wax tarts burner, incense burner, or essential oils diffuser might be useful. I’m not really into Halloween décor and suspect that a Halloween-themed candle holder would not get much use and would devolve into clutter.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? Probably not, since I tend not to find the time to use them. The exception might be a watercolor set and some good watercolor brushes.



9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? I adore fukuro obis and Hasui woodblock prints. (OK, those are a bit extravagant.) Some of the unusual flavor Kit Kat bars might be interesting.

How do you feel about nail wraps? I wouldn’t use them.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? Probably a cowl or scarf. Maybe handwarmers. I almost never wear knit hats (they lead directly to a bad hair day for the rest of the day). Jewel tones would probably be the best choice, although black might not be bad.
- would you use knitted washcloths? Maybe. a scarf? Perhaps. Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? No allergies or sensitivities, although I wouldn’t wear scratchy wool and I avoid acrylic.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? Perhaps Minerva McGonagall, since she’s very good at what she does and is well-respected, not to mention that she has a good moral compass.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? Perhaps Fifth Dynasty Egypt, to see the pyramids while they’re still relatively new and before the Old Kingdom collapses. Or maybe Minoan Crete, to see what their civilization was really like (Knossos or maybe Thera before the eruption). Or (long shot) the cities of the Silk Road at the height of their power and wealth – e.g. Kashgar, Khotan, Merv, Samarkand, Balkh, Bukhara, etc. And of course to see Stonehenge in use by its builders.

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would [you] invite? I’ll have to keep thinking about this. One of them would probably be Coco Chanel.

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 bought a fair amount of E&A items, but don’t have anything in particular on my wishlist at the moment.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? An infinity scarf would probably be the safest – more likely to fit!

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? Not really, since I don’t do cosplay.

9/10/17

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

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? Maybe. If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? Protection, prosperity, and health are possibilities.

Do you like poetry? I like the idea of poetry, although I seldom read it. There’s some more on this topic on my questionnaire.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? Handmade critters or stuffed animals, perhaps. Not custom repaints.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? I probably wouldn’t have a use for it since I don’t knit or crochet.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? Sure. I support Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. I also support Children of the Night and Doctors Without Borders. A wildlife or conservation group might be good (but not Greenpeace or Earth First). And no animal rights activist organizations like PETA.

Please provide wishes from the last two updates? I haven’t really looked at the last two updates.

9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/) The bar soap, bath grains, body whip/butter, In The Buff Body Polish, or whipped soap might be interesting.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get? Some goodies from Hotel Chocolat.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? I haven’t found the time to get into podcasts.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? I like pretty much everything that Forest does.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)? Those look moderately interesting.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/ They look fascinating, but I never get around to putting nail polish on.

9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. I’m a sucker for stationery, but not the cute stuff. I don’t like kawaii. I do like Crane & Co. bordered correspondence cards.

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? Not really.
- Or Haus of Gloi? Yes, I use their stuff occasionally (not the perfumes or hair oils).

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? Yes.

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like? I hadn’t seen it, but I don’t use Lush products. I go in the stores occasionally, but nothing ever persuades me to actually spend money on it.

9/7/17

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? Yes, and I already placed an order soon after the update was posted.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground? Either.
- Flavor and roast preferences? Probably straight-up coffee, not flavored. Not too dark a roast, don’t want it to taste burnt.
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? Oolong, black, white, or green are all good. Probably not herbal. I usually like fruit flavors.
- Loose leaf or tea bags? Either
- Anything specific you don't like? I’m not sure about rooibos.
- Are you in need of any gadgetry? Maybe another tea ball. A tea bag holder to set used tea bags on.

9/6/17

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? That would be nice.
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? Probably something that holds bottles.

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks) I’m not really into using K-beauty products, although I’m in the group on Facebook (I may yet take the plunge).
- What are your faves if you are?
- If you aren't would you like to try something? I seem to be pretty set in my ways with regard to the products I use.

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 seem to be falling down the traveler’s notebook rabbit hole. I have plenty of notebooks, but haven’t bought many inserts. Some quality watercolor paper inserts in size A5 or A6 would be nice.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? After my time. Doesn’t mean anything to me.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)? I don’t mind indie make-up, it’s just that I don’t wear make-up on a regular basis.

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/ Perhaps. It depends on how much effort (and equipment) is required to brew it.

9/4/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1 Not really.

- I love bags. Hip bags, dice bags, tarot bags, especially. I could use a new duct tape wallet...mine finally broke down after five years.

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?

Switch Witch 2017 Questions and Answers

9/4/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
Oh, yes, so much so that I already pre-ordered an embarrassingly high number of them. (And then backed the Unstable Unicorns card game on the Kickstarter!) How did I not know about this site before?!? I’ve bought some of Ramy’s designs from shirt.woot.com before, but to have a choice of so many more! I foresee a lot more purchases in my future. I’m not sure exactly what size or style would work best, so I ordered three different variations to figure that out. If my tees arrive before the end of the SW round, I’ll update with the correct size here.

9/5/17

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
I would be open to trying it, but my coffee maker doesn’t have a permanent gold filter and the FAQ says not to use a paper filter, so I guess it isn’t meant to be.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
I like indie makeup, but I’ve ordered a lot of loose eyeshadows from Shiro and other indie companies in the past, and I end up never using them. For some reason, about the only loose eyeshadows I use are the ones from Sugarpill, and I don’t use those anywhere near as often as I use pressed eyeshadows. I get really excited about new loose eyeshadow but when it comes to daily use, I tend to stick to pressed. I rarely use blush and I just bought a new one from Besame that should last me for years, and I don’t use highlighter (although I covet those cool unicorn ones).

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
I enjoyed it when I was a kid, because I liked anything with ghosts and monsters and stuff. The only interest I have in it now is that I have the book “Meddling Kids” by Edgar Cantero of my list of things I’d eventually like to get from the library and read.

9/6/17

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 haven’t really gotten interested in any new things, but I have been watching a lot of card making demos on YouTube lately (especially the ones from Lawn Fawn), so I’m starting to branch out into doing more than just stamping, like making pop up box cards. I’m loving the new Lawn Fawn Haunted House add on dies for their Scalloped Treat Box, so I just had to order both so I can try my hand at making some cool Halloween treat boxes!
( )

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
Not really my thing.

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?
I don’t really need any more containers, but if my Witch made one for me, I’m sure I’d love it! A small
wood box would probably work best.

9/7/17

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update?
Oh, gosh, so many things look good! I’d be interested in the 4in1, dusting powder, hair conditioner, either of the scrubs, or the Maple Sugar or Dark Rum & Ginger lip butters. Scent-wise I’m interested in Carnival Cakes or Witch Wood, or maybe Conjuring Room or Durga or Witches Milk.

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 only drink tea and hot chocolate, never coffee. I like flavored teas (spicy, minty, occasionally fruity), and I’m good with either tea bags or loose leaf. I’m not a big fan of rooibos. I don’t really need any more gadgets, but I wouldn’t say no to a cute tea infuser.

9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
I’ve already got more notebooks that I can use in my lifetime, but washi tape, stickers, fun pens, or notepads would be cool!

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
My former Witch Jenjin introduced me to Cocoa Pink last SW round, and I would love to get more of their clarifying shampoo and the Shine+ or Shine Sweetie conditioner. The smaller sizes would be great. Scent-wise, there are SO many that I’d be interested in trying, but I’m especially dying to try the Marshmallow Fireside and Flowerbomb scents. Since I’m curious about so many of the scents, maybe it might be better to get one or two in a trial dram of perfume instead? I’m most interested in the following: Spicebomb; Candyfloss; Twist of Lime; Cozy Blanket; Fear of Ghosts (Phasmophobia); Grapefruit Sugar; or Triple Vanilla Dream. Or maybe you have a favourite you think I should try? I’m open to just about anything except banana.
Or Haus of Gloi?
If the bar soap gets restocked, I’d be interested in the Moon Dog, Cozy Sweater, or Honeysuckle Lemon Curd. Jenjin was also responsible for my introduction to HoG, gifting me a soft bubbling scrub in Moondog during last year’s SW round. It was really nice, so I wouldn’t mind trying another bubbling scrub (the smaller 2 oz size would be perfect) in Cozy Sweater or Honeysuckle Lemon Curd, or maybe even Depravity.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
Oh my gosh yes! As long as it’s not too thick to fit between my front door and the storm door, a Halloween wreath would be perfect!

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733?(Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
I’m not a big Lush fan.

9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
Rook & Raven soap or bubbling sugar scrub look nice, as do the Festival, Indian Temple Attar, and Sylph soaps.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
A postcard would be great, or any little touristy thing (magnet or bookmark, perhaps) that you think is an appropriate reflection of where you are. Also, if you happen across any magazine articles or news clippings or such about Marc Almond, I would love to get them! I’m a huge fan, but he’s not very well known at all over here, so there’s never any press coverage. He’s releasing a new album this month (already pre-ordered on iTunes!), so if that leads to any press coverage in print, I’d love to get copies.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?
Nope.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
I think all the spells and magikal oils and such would be wasted on me.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
Sisterhood of the Moon sounds nice, as does Tortuga.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
I’m a total sucker for a strong holo, and I’ve been meaning to try ILNP polishes for a while now (I even have Black Orchid in my Etsy favourites), but have never gotten around to it. Maiden Lane, Walking Home, Missed Calls, 1Up, Caesar, Lime Light, Sticks and Stones, Mona Lisa, Deja Vu, Extra Credit, Black Orchid, Charmed all look gorgeous (well, they ALL look gorgeous, but those are my favourites), and I’d love any one of them.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
I’d like to give needle felting a try.

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
Probably not. I’m not really suited for doing ritual types of things.

Do you like poetry?
Some, I suppose, mostly as a byproduct of liking the writer - Leonard Cohen or Edgar Allan Poe, for instance.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
Handmade critters and stuffed animals definitely! I’d love something like that made by my Witch for me! This seems like a good time to mention my ceaseless coveting of cute (and creepy cute) amigurumi figures….

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
No thank you, I don’t do any yarn crafts.
Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?
Sure, if any of the causes or charities I listed in my questionnaire suit you!

Please provide wishes from the last two updates?
There have been so many updates recently that I’m not quite sure which are the last two, but from the eclipse update I’d like to try just a small decant of Mabel or maybe The Curtain of the Temple was Torn in Two.

9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
I know this is coltostallion’s question and I’ve already been partnered with her in a previous swap, so I’m sure she won’t be my Witch, but just in case whoever is my Witch is also wondering about my answer, it’s pretty much anything, really! I read/watch a lot of manga and anime, so I’m kind of intrigued by most things Japanese, and there are so many super cute things from Japan! I’m especially fond of maneki neko stuff, and anything related to one of the manga or anime series I like would be super cool. I’m sure I’ve listed them all at various times in various questionnaires, but right now the ones that spring to mind are Psychic Detective Yakumo / Shinrei Tantei Yakumo, Adekan, Pet Shop of Horrors, Ghost Hunt (Akuryou series & Akumu no Sumu ie), The Ancient Magus’ Bride / Mahou Tsukai no Yome, Library Wars / Toshokan Sensou, Black Butler / Kuroshitsuji (especially anything with Grell and/or Sebastian!), Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok / Matantei Loki Ragnarok, Hellsing, Demon Prince of Momochi House, Love Stage!!, Maid-sama!, and Ten Count. Stationary, Hello Kitty, any cute stuff would be welcomed and loved. I do have a Japanese market in my area, so I’m generally set on Japanese candy and treats, but they no longer have two things I used to get - Pocky with white chocolate and a “mystery” Puccho (I think that’s what it was called) - so I’d be happy to get more of either. Coltostallion sent me a bag of delicious chocolate cookies, but all I really know about them is that they came in a red bag with a cartoon cat in a spacesuit (?) on them, and the only thing written in English on it is Sittori Chocolate. If you recognize what I’m talking about from that description, I’d love to get some more! Also, I got a couple of eel pie cookies in my first Kizuna subscription box and they were delicious, so it’d be great to get more of those. Oh, I would especially love a postcard or souvenir from your part of Japan - something specific to your hometown or where you’re living now or one of your favourite places would be really cool to get. I think a mix CD of your favourite Japanese pop songs or the like if you have them would be fantastic, too.

How do you feel about nail wraps?
I have small nails that are generally short, so nail wraps are pretty much wasted on me. Small nail decals work much better.

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?
Handwarmers would probably get the most use. Best colors would be black, magenta, lime green, or purple, but I’m open to most anything. I would also definitely use knitted washcloths! I’m not allergic to any fibers, unless you’re knitting in tufts of cat or rabbit fur. I’m not particularly sensitive to any fibers, but I really like bamboo and fibers of that softness and smoothness. Smoother and softer is just generally nicer than chunky and scratchy.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
I’m absolutely terrible at answering these kinds of questions, so I’m just going to be totally flip and shallow and say some ancillary character hanging around the police station in the TV show Broken Badges. Just because I just got the series on DVD and I’m really enjoying watching a young Miguel Ferrer in the role of the main cop character, especially when he’s strutting around in a black leather jacket. Thinking about old TV shows also got me thinking that it would also be neat to be a random vampire in the show Forever Knight, just hanging around The Raven and watching/listening to LaCroix for hours.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
I’d like to go back and spend some time around Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe, then I’d like to spend some time traveling to various concerts throughout the last couple of decades and see Gene Pitney, Leonard Cohen, Heaven 17, Images In Vogue, Lords of the New Church, and as many Marc Almond shows as I could. I could probably spend a few years in the1980s just going from concert to concert! It would also be fun to go back to the early 1930s to see movies on the big screen and read the fan magazines and all that to experience the actors I like during their lifetimes instead of decades later.

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would you invite?
This is another one of those questions that I'm terrible at answering. Honestly, any 3 famous people that I would want to meet, I would probably be too awed and overwhelmed by to actually enjoy a meet and sniff. I get very nervous meeting new people, and it’s even worse when it’s people I admire for any reason. If we can consider famous people no longer living as fair game for this question, I do think it would probably be very interesting to get Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft all together in one room. I think it would also be fun to get their impressions of some of the BPAL blends inspired by them and their works.

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.
The Halloween Batty necklace! I really like the Spirit of Imbolc ring also. The Apparition and Spectre necklaces are cute too.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
Sure! Something hand sewn by my Witch would be really cool! A small stuffed animal or something like that would be great, or maybe a standard pillow case or small pillow made from a fabric with a neat print?

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?
Nothing comes to mind right now.

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
The Bearwalker Beer Bar looks good - cinnamon/vanilla/nutmeg sounds fantastic! The Cocoa Spice, Vanilla Bean, and Grapefruit Lemon also all sound really good. I love trying new soaps by local soapmakers!

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images?
Definitely bats! I love rats and owls and other Halloween-ish critters too, but I prefer my spiders to be cute rather than overly realistic. I like jack o'lanterns and skeletons and witches and ghosts and haunted houses and everything.
Any to specifically stay away from?
I can't really think of anything that you'd need to stay away from.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
I definitely do eat candy! My favourite Halloween candy is Reese's peanut butter pumpkins, and I like the York peppermint batties too. Really, though, most candy, Halloween or otherwise, would be lovingly welcomed.

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?
Zero interest in Fidget spinners, and I can’t think of any desk toys that have caught my eye. I’m not automatically opposed to frivolous things, though.

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

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
Not really. I have fine, limp hair that’s really not suited to those types of things. Anything I try to clip or tie in tends to slide out pretty quickly.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams, candy?
Local candy would be fun. I'm pretty well stocked up on jams, especially as I don't use them all that often, but maybe a tiny sampler size jar? I don't eat honey, although if the honey seller has beeswax candles, I'd be interested in that. A postcard from your locale would be awesome, if you don't mind revealing it early! (I promise I won't try to figure out who you are from your location, if you want to keep your identity a mystery for a while!)

Are you interested in any subscription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
Hmmm, I'm pretty much already subscribed to all the magazines I'm interested in, and most of the subscription boxes I'm interested in are pretty spendy (plus I'm already subscribed to the two I wanted most, the Neko Box and the Kizuna Lifestyle box). Maybe if there's an inexpensive box for cruelty-free makeup and other products?

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? I've never gotten the hang of fake eyelashes, and I have a few sheer black lipsticks already. I wouldn't mind getting an opaque black lipstick, but I don't think it would get a lot of use. Nail-wise, Halloween nail decals would be great, but they'd have to be kind of small, as my nails are usually pretty short (so all those cool nail wraps are wasted on me).

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
CD, vinyl, iTunes, or cassette. I might even be able to dig up an 8 track player if I needed to! I remember those days.....

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 can do Kindle in a pinch (using the Kindle for computers), but I vastly prefer actual books. I wouldn't mind being surprised with a classic horror book, or a horror anthology!

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?
Candles or incense would be best. Dark Candles is about the only brand I can think of for candles, but I also like beeswax candles in general, and I'm definitely open to other brands too. Spicy scents are best, and vanilla is good too. I have a wax tart burner that I never use and some nice essential oil diffusers, but a Halloween themed or pretty incense burner would be nice, and I'm a sucker for Halloween themed candle holders.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
Sure! Stamps, dies, ink pads, cardstock and other papers, stickers, cross-stitch patterns, floss, glass etching stencils, and various other related supplies would all be welcomed with open arms.

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?
I’m not a gamer.

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!
Both the Leafy and Chevron are neat-looking and different from any other scarf I have.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
I like mostly porters and stouts, and I like the chocolate-y ones better than the more coffee-y ones. This time of year I also really like trying various pumpkin beers.

Like booze? What kinds?
I’ll try just about anything, but I’m partial to flavored vodkas and schnapps (ginger, peppermint, cinnamon, etc.).

Like Wine? What kinds?
I do like wine, and again, I’ll try just about anything. I do tend to buy mostly moscatos and whites, but my favourite wine is a fairly cheap Catawba from a local winery.

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!
No thank you, they’re not really my style.

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 generally tend to dig out my box sets of Vincent Price and Bela Lugosi movies around Hallowen, and especially the Poe adaptations with Price. I try to always watch the Corman/Price version of The Raven at least; it’s a silly movie, but I love it. Earlier this year I bought a box set of the classic Universal horror movies (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, etc.), and also the House of the Long Shadows (with Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and John Carradine), and haven’t taken the time to sit down and watch any of them, so I’m going to add them to the list for seasonal viewing this year. I guess I would be fine with fan-made merch, but I’m really not into fan-made drawings or paintings. If they made something with the poster art or stills from the movies, that would be good - I’ve seen some cool jewelry like that on Etsy, for instance.

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 do not.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
I doubt they would work on me, but nonetheless, I’m still interested in at least trying Bela and Vincent, and to a slightly lesser extent, Christopher and Peter. I’d also be interested in trying any of the following: Black Cat, Boogieman, Vanilla Vampire Bat, Vampire Chocolate Bat, Hallowcats, Hex, Mummy Tomb Incense, or Pumpkin #29.

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)
Spinning on Graves and Wednesday's Child Is Full of Woe (as I am a Wednesday's child myself, I might not have been able to resist this one even if it hadn't sounded like a scent I could really like, so I'm quite excited that it does!). I'm planning to grab a bottle of each along with some CD stuff I've been wanting; I'm just waiting to see what wins the Lunacy poll before I place my order. From the Trading Post Etsy, there's nothing I want a full bottle of, but I wouldn't mind trying decants of the Pumpkin Orange and Dragonfly & Dragon hair glosses.

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?
That's a very pretty banner! I like the traditional style fractionally more, but either type would work.

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 do live near a Trader Joe's, so I'm all set. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin anyway, with the exception of their pumpkin muffin mix, which I buy and stockpile for use throughout the year.

Do you have use for warm handknitted scarf, hat and/or mittens?
Fingerless mittens would come in handy for the cold winter days ahead.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
Um, no. I am terrible in the kitchen. Using that pumpkin muffin mix I mentioned earlier is about the extent of my baking, and I do even less cooking.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
Nothing comes to mind.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
I’m going to agree with what some other people have said: a reveal if you’re comfortable with that! I leave everything else entirely up to your whims.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
I would be happy to get one. I don’t really formally collect stamps, but I do tend to accumulate and keep stamps that I think are pretty or interesting.

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?
Garnet and labadorite are my favourites, but I'm pretty much open to any gemstones. I love gemstones and have a small collection of various loose faceted stones.

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
Probably discrete and elegant, but I don't mind a little flash either.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
Not particularly.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
The Haunted Mansion is probably the only thing I care about at Disney World.

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
Nope. Haven't read the books, haven't seen the movies.

How do you feel about chokers?
I think they look beautiful on others, but they're not for me. I don't like things tight around my neck.

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!
A postcard would be lovely!

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 am not, mainly because I lack the discipline to sit down and learn. I find tarot and divination interesting, but I’ve not been able to commit to taking the time to study and learn it. I do have a lot of oracle decks and some tarot decks, but that’s because either I liked the art or they were gifts.

Would my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
Yes! I don’t really have any burning questions to ask, though, so it would have to be a more general type of overview - maybe that sort of thing is better suited to an astrology reading than a tarot reading? I don’t know, but I’m open to either.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
Nope. I’m not a practitioner.

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 love socks! I like crew length best, but I wear anklet and no-show socks when my outfit requires it. I love bamboo socks, but I'll wear just about any fiber - when it comes down to it, if the sock is the right colour or has a neat design, I'll wear any style or fiber. I love Halloween socks, Hello Kitty socks, socks with cute animals (bats, octopi, foxes, raccoons, etc., etc.), socks with cute patterns (I have a pair of socks with a macaroni and cheese pattern that I absolutely love!), those comfy spa socks from Bath & Body Works with the cute animal designs, and more.

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Absolutely!

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Again, absolutely! In fact, partial might even be better, because I like to try lots of different things, but I almost never go through full bottles of anything. The only exceptions to that have been Dorian, Midway, and Mantle of Venus (that last one only because I superstitiously wear a little bit of it every time I go anywhere).

So what are your favorite fandoms?
I’m not hugely into any fandoms any more, but I still like to occasionally pick up stuff related to Mystery Science Theater 3000 (Joel era), Supernatural (with focus on Dean), and various anime/manga (Black Butler has some cool merchandise - either Sebastian or Grell (or Sebastian/Grell), and never ever Sebastian/Ciel! For other anime/manga I follow, see the answer above about things from Japan). I’m not sure if they count as “fandoms”, but I like the old classic horror movies and actors, and I’m interested in the pre-code movie era and actors from that era and shortly after.

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek?
I have always liked the idea of having zombie flamingoes on my front lawn, but they’re still kind of expensive even on sale. The Cat Fairy Lights are cute!

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
Nothing much, except that I realize that I forgot to include Red Dwarf in my list of favourite TV shows. I did a whole series re-watch this spring, and I’m really looking forward to Season XII coming out later this year.

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...)
Well, I suppose one thing is that I really don’t change. If you read my posts from previous SW and other swap rounds as part of your stalking, I’m sure you’ll notice that I kind of say the same things over and over again. If I liked something years ago, I most likely still like it today. My levels of enthusiasm may vary over time, but once I’m interested in something, I’m generally interested for life. I’ll get interested in new things as I discover them, but I never discard the old ones, and I’ll go back to them from time to time. This week I’m obsessively watching a tv show from the early 1990s that I liked back then, and earlier this month I was focused on a different show from the mid-80s. I don’t know if this is at all helpful for you to know or not, but it’s something that came to mind while I was working on answering questions.

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.
Either Halloween all year ‘round or 1930s starlet boudoir complete with fancy vanity/dressing table and plush velvet lounging couch.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
Not really. I have two already, one I made in high school home ec and one that my mom decorated with a cross-stitch design and gave me as a gift, and I almost never use them. I just never really have occasion or reason to put on an apron.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll)
No, thank you. Random dolls don’t interest me, and I would much prefer animals to people types when it comes to crafted (knitted/crocheted/sewn/etc.) figures.

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?
I don’t.

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
I don’t really know what they’ll have there, but if you see any cute little trinket or inexpensive merch related to any of the anime or manga I’ve listed before as among my favourites, or from another one that you think I would like based on the ones I listed, I’d be happy to get something like that. It looks like both Funimation and Viz Media (home of the Shojo Beat imprint) will be there, so I’m thinking they may have some cool stuff related to their various properties. I just checked the guest list out of curiousity, and oh, I’m a little jealous - Jackie Earle Haley, who I loved as Guerrero in Human Target, is going to be there, not to mention Bruce Campbell and Jeffrey Donovan!
NYCC scents: Apple scents don’t appeal to me, so there’s nothing I’d be looking to get.

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
Again, really no idea what they might have there, but if you see something that you think I would like, I’ll leave it up to you!

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
Not really.

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
Do etailers like Sick on Sin and my new found potential love Tee Turtle count? Those are what spring to mind for me with this question. I'll think about it some more and update if I come up with anything else.

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!
The things that tend to catch my eye and make me wish that money were no object tend to be the woodwork, quilts, and jewelry. I’d probably go for a polished wooden box inlaid with a nice design in varying colors of wood, especially if the body of the box were cherry wood or perhaps a dark wood like ebony. Alternately, I’ve seen some mirrors in wood frames with beautiful inlaid designs at the Ann Arbor Art Fair in the past that may very well have ended up being mine were it not for the price. I’d also love a quilt with a fun design - bats or general Halloween or frogs or something cute like that.

9/21/17

See's Candy. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?
The orange & chocolate wafers, orange krispys, and caramel apple scotchmallows all look good, and I wouldn’t mind trying one caramel apple lollypop!

So, question: Are any witchees into coloring books?
I do like coloring books, but at this point in time, I already have more than enough (some people might even say too many!).

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
Just one would be fine. I don’t have a matching set of everyday dishes; I have one each of a bunch of different patterns, and only two plates that actually match. I wouldn’t mind a second setting to use in case a friend came over, but really, one is quite enough.

9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
No thank you. We have lots of cider mills in the area, so there’s never any need to use powdered mix instead.

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 do like to take baths, but I hate cleaning the bathtub. I like things that fizz as long as they don’t discolor the bathtub and don’t leave a ton of oil behind, and I tend to use the BPTP bath oils only as an after bath moisturizer.

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 an old-style non-smart flip phone and don’t own a tablet, and I don’t really want to stick anything permanently to my laptop, so I guess the answer to the last question is no thanks.

9/23/17

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
I like the Marshmallow Fireside candles, but I still have 3 of the 3-wick candles, so no need to get any more. I don’t know if they make smaller candles in that scent, but I would be interested in getting some votive size or single-wick size if they make them. Also, I can always use more of the PocketBacs. I use them multiple times a day, every day. I like warm vanilla sugar and similar scents, most of the fruit scents, and mint scents. I stay away from the “clean” and beachy and aquatic scents.

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 like garnets and labadorites best, also green amethyst or peridot, but really anything sparkly and pretty works for me! I have all kinds of stones and crystals that I’ve picked up just because they look pretty. I also really like those little round crystals, like little crystal balls, of any colour.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
Pumpkin bread sounds good.

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips, peanut butter, or snickerdoodles.

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.)
No, thank you.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
Definitely, especially the rose petal!

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
How cool that you have bees! I love bees, but I don’t use honey, so I’m going to say no thanks on this one.

Would you like homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
Sure! Rose petal sounds cool, and blackberry and cherry sound yummy, so any one of those would be great. If you make different sizes, small jars are better than big jars, because I don’t use jam all the time.

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
No, thank you.

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.
No, thank you. Apple season is going strong around here, and I tend to prefer fresh to dehydrated.

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?
Pillowcases would be fun! Maybe something Halloween seasonal, or Hello Kitty, or with cute animals?

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
I’m boring and always buy the same calendars every year: a frog wall calendar for my kitchen and a German word-a-day desk calendar for my bedroom. So I’m good on calendars, but I know there are some cool anime calendars out there in the world, so if you happen to run across a calendar (any size) featuring one of the anime I’ve listed as among my favourites, I would definitely find a place for it!

If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
I like stationery with cute animals or Halloween sorts of images - bats, ghosts, ravens, spooky trees, that sort of thing.

What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
I have nearly a lifetime’s supply of colored paperclips and staples and other desk stuff, so unless you find a post it pad that seems perfect for me, I should already be all set.

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
I like the artwork, but I don’t feel the need to own any of it. If she had a selection of postcards or something small like that, I’d be interested, but I didn’t see anything like that on the site.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
There’s a Ten Thousand Villages store in my area, so I don’t need anything from them.

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.)
I love chain maille! I’d definitely be into receiving something chain maille! A small crocheted, sewn, or felted stuffed toy that you made would also be great!

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?
No thanks. I don’t have any interest in SBUX and I’m already overwhelmed with mugs. I’m about 2 or 3 mugs over the storage capacity of my cupboards already.

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.
The biggest, most enthusiastic YES! possible to homemade fudge! Just plain old chocolate fudge is absolutely perfect. Chocolate fudge is one of the best treats ever.

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)
Sorry, I don’t really like spicy foods.

9/26/17

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
I don’t really need anything, but those owl mitts are very cool!

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
There’s nothing I’m really dying for. I’d like a back-up bottle of Sri Lankan Lime single note, I’ll always take more Midway, and I’d love if I could get another bottle of Shub-Niggurath that matches the straightforward spicy ginger-ness of the first bottle of it that I bought when it first came out (the second one I ordered later was nice enough, but it just wasn’t the same), but it’s not like I’m desperately in search of any of those.

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Taxidermy or pieces of dead things (the one exception would be bones in owl pellets, which are fun to dissect).

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
The Swan is pretty, but I don’t need a print or anything else featuring it.

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?
Probably not the masques or DDLM style stuff, but I’m open to other things.

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/If so, which products/scents/flavors?
I love clove soap, so I’d be very interested in the Oatmeal Clove soap! The Blood Orange and Meyer Lemon also sound nice. I really don’t need any more lip balm, but the Cherry Gingerale is intriguing nonetheless.

9/27/17

How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions
I’m not really a doll person; when it comes to little collectibles, I gravitate more to animals. I ended up collecting the entire line of last year’s Hello Kitty Series 1 Costume Collection blind bag figures, and now I’m most tempted by the Pusheen Halloween blind boxes (Surprise Plush! Series 4: Trick or Treats!

9/30/17

Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list
Nothing on the list is really calling out to me.

10/01/17

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’m always up for new bar soaps! I like candles, too.

Witchee, I'm about to place an order with Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com
Oooohhh, the eye dusts are so pretty! I don’t think I’d ever use anywhere near an entire container, though. It’s too bad they don’t seem to have sample sizes, because I’d be interested in trying the Moon Stone, Gold Lime, or Jade loose glam dusts. (Well, ok, I’d be interested in trying just about any of them, but those would be my top three.)

9/26/17

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/ Ah Misstwilights lovely knitting--no thank you again due to knitting forever and a day.

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs? uh well ummm so many precious scents. Scent wise I think I would be happier making it easier for my witch by picking something in the GC like Defututa {just cracked open my last bottle} or Snake Oil... I think I have listed all the recent unimpables in an earlier question

What are some things you do NOT want to receive? I think cosmetics which were asked about various brands. I rarely wear cosmetics {except for nail polish I have a lot of nail polish} and have a ton of it.

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 No thank you although the reader and music connection are very evocative.

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors? As always body butter is a good bet--vanilla, unscented, lemon in that order


9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or day planners? I use my online calendar exclusively
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? I tend to like stationary generally speaking. I cannot think of something that I particularly dislike although sometimes that grumpy hausfrau with coffee in hand gets to me. I guess I don't like grumpy cat either. I don't like grumpy.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads? yes on paperclips. I also covet page nibs or book darts

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 I am entranced by The Yellow Wallpaper print especially since I have The Yellow Wallpaper {and other stories} on my lovely amazon book wishlist. yes I have read it but it was decades ago.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/

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.) Yes I approve of hand made things. Dishcloths, bags etc more than something else

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

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch. sounds delicious and like not something I am able to eat right now

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) Well this is my question and obviously I am addicted to the suckers and wouldn't mind more in my life

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus??? I answered this on forum


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 tend to put them in a drawer then send them off into the wild in a mad fit of destashing. Repeat. I did recently get a sticker and it had drops of something on it so is kinda ruined and wish I had a pristine one but for some reason it isn't at hand so I cannot describe it

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ Wise One Whispers, Nostalgia, Corvid Love,

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? I love elephants ... My daughter loves cats as do I .... I collect bird things I personally own 6 Amy Ruppels and my daughters {and therefore grandsons} last name is Byrd so I sometimes look for bird type things to gift them.

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!) I love Depeche Mode

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)? I am interested in the two coffee scents they released a wee back... also Flor de Maga

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 have, on my Amazon wishlist, several items for kitchen which I consider homesteading type of things--I want to make my own soy milk so a nut bag and my own tofu so a tofu making kit. That sort of thing.

9/23/17

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/ I swear they come out with scents that I think sound nice after they are discontinued but I don't shop there so that is why.

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? those little fossilized shell looking things always grab my eyes when I see them at cons.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? zucchini

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? I like cookies in general. Oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, peanut blossoms {kiss in middle}, shortbread cookies etc. My oldest cookbook is from 1965 and is all cookies all the time. A gift from my mom and her 1st cookbook purchase once she moved to United States because she too loves cookies.

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 probably could but it sounds scary!

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur? Those both sound super delicious.

Want some honey from the bees on our property? I am avoiding honey dear witch but I wouldn't say not to a gift from your property. My dad was a beekeeper and I know that not everybody abuses their bees.

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. ACK! Cherry, Rhubarb, Peach all sound delicious. I have never had blackberry or rose petal.

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. Also sounds good

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 think the apple crisps sound super delicious.

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 would've a project bag. Thanks Shari

9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm yes

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above? yes on baths and especially yes on all three of these but most definitely on oils.

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 iPhone6 and no cover on it because I hate otterboxs which is what my husband got me when we got the phone. I spend much time on Society6 looking at cases.

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? I want some pumpkin spice lollipops. Due to this question I have found out there are no Sees candy stores within a 6 hr drive. Boo!

Are any witchees into coloring books? I don't color although I love colored pencils. I suppose I would color if I had a coloring book

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)? oh I used to window shop here all the time but nothing jumped out at me.

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household? 4


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? I do enjoy musicals ala old movie musicals. My kid was just watching Phantom this Sunday evening so I know he would appreciate some of that.

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there? the plethora of apple is a huge no for me. However there are plenty of GC items on my wishlist. Also Dorian is supposedly in stock at those things but not on site.

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? I am covetous of the Monstress books

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.

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! Historically speaking I would gravitate towards pottery and baskets. Some weaving appeals to me as does woodwork.
9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com I would have to get back to you on that.

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? I totally forgot what I put on questionnaire because I was mind boggled by time I was finished with it.

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...) I love elephants... and cats... and I think I said that.

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. Ugh I am torn between minimalist because that clean starkness appeals to me and baroque because rich velvets and curlicues. Call me conflicted.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? I used to have this cute little apron that was a patchwork from other things in the 80's ... tied around waist and was the cute flared retro looking thing. I keep looking for a new one but I am picky-no ruffles, mid weight so not too thin, and of course I am plus sized.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) Yes that is adorables {plus children plus grand children}

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 do wear socks. I knit after all. I need the anklet/hidden in shoes type for walking. My youngest prefers non hand knit knee highs and my middle and husband are spoiled by hand knit socks usual mid calf affairs. I am a wool freak.

Would you be open to previously-loved books? yes

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? yes

So what are your favorite fandoms? Soooooo. Re the fandoms. I read and watch almost exclusively fan type of things. From Star Trek as a child with my dad to Buffy as a new mom and Dr Who all the time BUT I don't get fandom. I read sci-fi/fantasy especially geared towards YA {vampires/werewolves, MockingJay} Vampire porn romance is good too. My husband and I go to the local science fiction/fantasy convention and have even been to world con. My husband thinks it is funny my smells of choice are so obviously fan based because I don't get dressing up or breaking down into minutia things I enjoy. I enjoy other people costuming of course. But my eyes glaze over when people say and in this episode plot twist/hole blah blah. I don't care. I just enjoy the stuff. So I am not sure how much fan inspired anything would appeal to me. Unless you are talking Totoro then all bets are off. Maybe plusheen. Oh and I like moon and star things but those are fandoms. Well maybe Totoro and Plusheen are fan things but hey.

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 do like lavender --I would love a lavender sachet or neck bolster/pillow to help me chill at night

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? No. I have a ton of decks I don't use. I like them for arts sake. My husband collects them as well. Since our tastes are different we do tend to have different collections

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? I had my natal chart done once but for some reason cannot find it anymore. It was done over 20 years ago and would love to have it done again. My husband studies Tarot from a historical vantage point and we both collect decks for arts sake more than divination {although he has several books on wicca so hmmmmm}

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? no

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? These links are going to make me broke as no joke. yes

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones? As an Aries I am supposed to say diamonds but no. I like sapphires, garnets, emeralds, tigers eyes, my black pearls, hematite, smoky quartz.

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? Well I don't think anything I own is gaudy. I like both large and clunky and discreet depending upon what it is and my mood. I once purchased battery operated earrings in Vegas and they flashed on and off but I swear they were not gaudy. I like wide rings or stacking rings.

Any love of pirates or SCA? not particularly

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? My niece works at Disney World. She always picks up a few things for me as Christmas gifts. But for some reason I don't have any Jack things. I have pink mouse ears ornament and special jewelry cases but nothing gothy... I am not sure my niece sees me the way I see me.

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? You know I have done this sorting several times, enjoyed the movies but never read the books. See note along top regarding fandoms

How do you feel about chokers? I only wear chokers or really long/lariet type of things that get lost in my cleavage.

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? These are so clever!

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 do live near a Trader Joes. I am headed there this weekend myself. May update.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? YES! I love to cook. I have cookbooks and cooking gadgets galore on my Amazon list. Please note I do not expect anybody to buy stuff on my list it just happens to exist for sake of husband. I also am interested in a black salt that makes things taste like eggs? And other spices.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? shells

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice. oh lord I really am looking forward to spoiling my witchee more than thinking about what I want but I do want so many many things. I think I will be easy to please.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? They made Eclipse Stamps? Get Out! Where do I find them...


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 have 2 younglings living at home. One is in college and the other is a Cat Love {hence my excite about link to tee shirts as first question because Cats} and is into Anime. Apparently there is a difference between Korean and Japanese manga. And Stuffed Animals. Black Butler books are what I got her for christmas last year.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? I am not familiar with them really. I did get a few samples of their scents and remember liking them but I don't remember what they were. I am a floriental gal so ambers, a bit of citrus and spicy florals. Think Shalimar. Plus Jasmine Hoar. I also like sweet scents vanilla, marshmallow, sugared roses etc. But more Shalimar than sweet. Also spicy foodies are good.

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) TKO massage oil, most bath oils that fit my scent profile {Morocco, Snake Oil, Luxuria and Casitas if it ever comes back in stock}, I am tempted by Themyskyrin Princess even tho it contains the headache inducing death note of headaches leather, most of the pups appeal to me tho I have more hair gloss than I can use. Candles yes. Erebos is a favorite spray and I think I like the Fainting Couch as well.

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?- I am not a gamer. I play Don't Starve on Steam with my kids. I got my kids into DnD and Necromancer and my youngest plays Minecraft so there you go.
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? I knit myself and have made Wisp and given it as gifts. Simple eyelet scarf YES Chevron scarf YES Lacy and fuzzy YES Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Looks clunky :-( but would be nice in other yarn? Leafy! Not my favorite.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? Strawberry hard cider/ale/beer with a definite sweet strawberry vibe not the hops harshness.

Like booze? What kinds? sweet ones-I want to try the vegan Baileys, Frangelico is a favorite

Like Wine? What kinds? yes sweet or desert wines. My husband finds them undrinkable but whatevs. I don't drink his swill ;-)

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! I have never worn any.

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 think I have an annual movie we watch. When the kids were little we did but it was something on disney and I forget.

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ I only use hand crafted type of soaps being a former soap maker myself. I think I mentioned being prone to eczema so the cold process soaps are naturally better for my skin than commercial soaps.

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? Cute/Sexy witches not the warty crone witches and moons and bats but no skeletons. Kitch-y cute

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? I eat candy but just recently transitioned to being vegan so not sure how much chocolate-y goodness I can eat. I do not mind sugar being non vegan but the milk chocolate and caramel and toffees are gone from my life. Mores the pity because those were my favorites.

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? I have a few thumb fidget puppets--the things that collapse when you press on bottom. They need replacing since they are really old and my children tore of giraffe ears and sadness.

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? I had to google that! Yes to somebody else's art.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? I like barrettes and clips. Pretty standard I guess.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? Honey is out due to Vegan bit and I think candies can be tricky but I am happy to try something local to my witch.

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, tipsy? I have a subscription to a nail polish box -Baroness X. Due to my Asian beauty fixation I have heard they have mask subscription boxes but I haven't tried any yet.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? not really

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? I -tunes or radio/online streaming

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? Actual paper books. I am fond of mysteries.

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 am a candle person. I like foodies for candles or amber type of things that invoke warmth to me. I don't burn incense because it bothers my kids. I no longer own an oil diffuser.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?



9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? I already mentioned my Asian Beauty fixation. I am sure there are tons of cute notebooks and plushies to be had.

How do you feel about nail wraps? No

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 would love a washcloth or two ... I don't knit with cotton or linen and those items usually are cotton or linen. I am a knitter. Blue and white work best for household things.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?

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 do like her jewelry and favorited a card.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? I am particularly fond of wrap skirts. Unfortunately I am of the larger variety so even tho I *think* they are simple to make there is some yardage involved. But I am a huge fan of slow fashion. In my dreams I would be a sewer and able to fully participate in Seam Allowance which calls for 25% of your wardrobe to be hand made. Not necessarily by oneself I hope! https://www.averbforkeepingwarm.com/blogs/seam-allowance-take-the-pledge-and-make-your-own-clothing/6145998-seam-allowance-pledge-to-make-25-of-your-clothing I also appreciate little bags and such.

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? I am sure my child would appreciate them but I don't dress up either for halloween or for cons.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? I have been knitting for over 42 years and really just don't do other crafts. I do have some spindles and a book on tatting. Some beads but I don't really do them. I do wish I could sew and have asked a friend to teach me.

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? yes--I find myself in that middle aged filled with regret, how did I get here, angry mode. A wee bit of peace would be nice. Job hunting mojo even better.

Do you like poetry? Yes. Currently coveting Rupi Kaur, both her current and upcoming books are on my Amazon shopping list.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? I have a few plushies.... just a few. Not too many.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftiness? I do have several patterns on my wishlist on Ravelry. I think Ysolda dominates right now {her last two vests are in my queue} and I appreciate most natural fiber yarns in the lace to fingering weight. I love shetland yarns and stockpile those.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? Yes. Southern Poverty Law or Planned Parenthood.

Please provide wishes from the last two updates? Oh so very very many. Valuable, Powerful, Deserving, The Drunk Astronomers, The Sun in Anger Swore, Clemence, The Best Lies all sound interesting and covers the last 4 updates I think.



9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/) Dear me, whipped soap-I have never tried any, whipped body butter, and plain ol body butter! What is this madness?

Are there any UK things you'd like to get? Yes. I sometimes order books from UK because the illustrations are different. I covet dead or red mary jane shoes but I wouldn't dare dream of shoes. Also yarns because in my head the other side of the pond is flooded with lovely yarns. I am sure knitters from overseas feel the same way.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? I don't really listen to podcasts. Occasionally I go online and listen to The Political Junkie. I am more likely to read the websites than listen to podcasts. For example I follow Reading Women on insta, and get their newsletter inboxed to me but do not listen to their podcast.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? Generally candles, soaps and body creams are safe bets. I am a bath taker as well.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)? Yes! Sisterhood of the Moon and Ghosts of Elliott City {less the first dirt one. Dirt Bergh}

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/ I own several ILNP. I purchased their Fall Neutrals collection last year. I covet some of their reds {stopping traffic!} and more neutrals. I am not a huge chrome or mega fan.

9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. I think washi tape is adorables. I like colored pencils and pens {purple!}, and blank notebooks or lined notebooks or gridded notebooks. Oh Okay. Send me all the notebooks

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? I have never tried them but I have eczema and any body butter, whipped or otherwise, from practically anywhere is appreciated always.
- Or Haus of Gloi? I am a huge fan of their pumpkin butter which I normally purchase in the unscented version

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like? I had not. Of those the Bewitched bath bomb and Black Rose lip tint

9/7/17

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? So Many lovely sounding scents. Mind boggled.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? I rarely drink either but I like both. And of course hot chocolate
- Coffee: whole beans or ground? I prefer ground but my husband prefers beas
- Flavor and roast preferences? hazelnut, french vanilla--those sweetie types. Medium roast I guess.
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? Flavored. Orange spice used to be my jam. I do like various types rooibos, green, etc. Flavors.
- Loose leaf or tea bags? bags
- Anything specific you don't like?
- Are you in need of any gadgetry? If you are called to send me loose tea one of those tea balls... I used to have one but it disappeared so I have been strictly bag ever since. But I am not opposed to loose teas.

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? I do enjoy tins. I have a lovely Honey Altoids tin I won in a FB contest. It is perfect for carrying around some imps.

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks) ME!
- What are your faves if you are? I am wicked into toners. I have a wee collection of them. On my current covet list are the ceramide containing toners recently blogged about by Vanity Rex. I am very interested in trying various masks I have read about on blogs. Most masks are inexpensive so I don't order just them because nope to the free shipping and my toner and lotion habit means I tend to push my budget without adding on an extra item.
- If you aren't would you like to try something?

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... Asian Beauty, interested in making my own tofu, transitioned to Vegan diet this year after spending 30 years as an off and on again Vegetarian.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? I like Scooby... who doesn't? I am not sure how I feel about scooby themed things tho... I am a weird fan and will make a helpful post regarding my fandom

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)? I am interested in the Ritual de Fille stuff {mainly lipstick} and buy tons of indie nail polish. I have never utilized loose pigments and don't wear many cosmetics generally speaking. Nail polish, mascara, lipstick is my usual look

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/ Man this stuff sounds interesting. Yes now that you ask I would

9/4/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts? https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1 these are super adorable. My youngest loves cats and I totally am shopping here for her {and maybe my witchee depending upon his/her answer} and me too

SW 2017 Ketchup Questions - Complete up to Sept 20th!

Whew!

SW 2017 Follow Up Questions:


9/19 - 9/20

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

For me, regarding the question on "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."

I couldn't think of anything until now. So my answer to that would be:

Under $10: a charcoal or clay face mask, or something similar to deep clean pores and/or a nice pore refining/minimizing mask

Over $10: cute/gothy/artsy small cosmetic bag (around 4" x6"ish). I've been wanting and meaning to get one for my make up in my work bag but never manage to get around to getting one (or finding one I like) This might also be under $10.

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...)


I love German Shepard Dogs, and my girl of 13+ years passed away in 2014. I still miss her. I used to collect GSD stuff but now I limit to really special/amazing pieces.

I've recently (past 2 years?) discovered my love for Corgis. I've been wanting one for a while but LIFE got in the way and now I'm not in a position to have one.
I adore them though.

I'm a cancer survivor. (Hodgkins Lymphoma). This has changed me and my life in many ways, some good, some bad. It's something I'm still working through.

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.


Victorian Goth, with a large dose of Spooky elements (think Haunted Mansion but a bit more elegant) with hints and nods to fantasy/RPG/nerdy elements

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek?
Boy, am I! I have a wishlist
http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/gimme.cgi?wid=81d582188&icpg=wishlist_share_81d582188

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
I have one, but I don’t wear it often because it’s a little too small. I really could use one, preferable utility but utility and cute is nice. Both cooking and crafting (or, I could use one for each)

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 like the idea of fun socks in theory but find I don’t really wear them much in practice. I DO use knee highs to wear with my big ol’ gothy boots, but I’m not sure I need new ones yet. I have to wear sneakers 99% of the time due to really screwed up feet so I don’t get to wear fun shoes very often to go with the fun sock. All that being said I kinda do want more stripey knee highs, and would welcome comfy “house socks”. I don’t have a fiber preference.

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Yes!

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
No problem there at all either.

So what are your favorite fandoms?
e I don’t really “Super-Fan” About anything. Ever. But there are fandoms that I really like so here’s what I can think of:

I’m a fan of Monster High and the new MLP (don’t laugh!), I like Harry Potter but not a huge super fan.
Does Disney’s Haunted Mansion count as a fandom?
Disney in general
Star Trek (pre-JJ Abrams) and Star Wars.
D&D/DragonLance/Forgotten Realms



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!
Nothing from France that i can think of. I like lavendar but it can get a bit overwhelming/sharp to me. But anything with a nice soft lavendar would be nice!

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 use Tarot for writing actually (both as inspiration and to help me understand my characters and world better). I’m often on the look out for new cards, and i find it’s history fascinating. But I don’t really use Tarot for actual divination...

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? Hm. Maybe!

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? No.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
Honestly, i’m a little over whelmed at looking at so many new e-tailers and bath and body sites! I do love artisanal soaps and would like to try new companies and products. The Halloween and Fall collection look really interesting so surprise me! You can see my preferred scents in my main survey and can probably tell based on other scents I’ve picked.

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones? Garnets and bloodstones and Onyx (or Jet). I also like Hematite and tourmaline. Any of the semi precious stones that are dark red, dark purple, blue, dark green, and even tigers eye.
I’m also writing a story that uses Ametrine, so it might be nice to have a pendant with that.

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? I tend to prefer themed, or elegant. Anything unique, but tend to prefer not anything too chunky or gaudy.

Any love of pirates or SCA? I enjoy the aesthetic and idea, but not really super crazy for it.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? I am a fan of ANYTHING Haunted Mansion, but i do have an AP for Disney World.

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? I am always torn between Syltherin and Ravenclaw

How do you feel about chokers? Love them. Don’t wear them enough.

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?
Nah. Not really my style.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? Yes. If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year? If you can find any gluten free, sure! It's difficult to get to my TJ's.


Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
Yes! I love specialty salts and oils (like infused). I’ve long wanted to buy “nice” spices, but never get around to it or can justify it to myself.


I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? No thank you

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

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?
The Kitties will never say no to treats. The two orange oafs (Famine and Squeaker) and Ivy cat have no treat preference. Squeak will eat damn near anything.

Our girl Pest (short for Pestilence) sadly has kitty cat IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disorder) and can’t have any treats with chicken, beef, or grains. We’re not 100% sure what sets her off, but those three seem to be at the top. Any “allergy” treats should be ok, and she can have venison and duck. Unfortunetly, we can’t find many treats that she likes.

ALL of the kitties love cat nip.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
I’m not super familiar with NA, but it seems their food stuff works very well with me, whereas many others do not.
I think decants might be preferred at this time if possible.

I hadn’t looked at their update until now and this is what caught my eye:

Witch Fog
Deathly Delights
Bela
Vincent
Vampire Chocolate Bat
Hallowcats
Enchanting Mermaidens
Every Pumpkin counts

Hex
Vampire Vanilla Bat
Headless horseman
Sisters of the Moon
Curse: Mummy Tomb Incense
Black Amber Rose burgandy

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)
Yes! I’m interested in trying various
Liliths (preferably decants): Wednesday's Child is Full of Woe
My Little Themysciran Princess
Zip Line

Also nail polishes of:
Gothic Black
Bilquis
Laura
Shadow Moon

HG (can be decants, I don’t use a lot of HG):
La Roue de Malheur
Coconut, Vanilla Bean and Tiare
Dorian
White Tea and Sage

Atmos sprays:
Okiya
Lich’s Lab

Misc:
(Super Wishlist items.)
Triple Dagger Bracelet
A little lunacy ID case
Bat Woman ID case
Triple dagger IMP case


9/13/17

Are you a gamer?
Yes!
If so, what games are you currently playing
Errr. I tend to be a casual player of video games, and will play a bit and then leave it alone.
Right now I’m playing Hearthstone, RIFT (the MMO), Armello, and various Zelda games on the DS

I also like casual hidden object games
Also currently playing several D&D tabletop RPGs. I have a wizard, a sorcerer, and a druid characters.

Also a big fan of board games/RPG/Strategy games.

and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
Anything Zelda. It’s more nostalgia for me, but a favorite.

If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
Steam and Gaming Amazon wishlists are in my original survey

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf

Yay! I like the style and the lightness of it works well for Florida.
Chevron scarf

Not a fan of that many colors/multi color. Might be nice in monochrome, or chevron strips
Lacy and fuzzy

The delicate weave would make a really neat etheral fairy type shawl or capelet. Could also see this in black/dark red as a gothic fairy look.
Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping)

I already have a lot like this.
Leafy!
Ohhh! This would work well for a druid or fae look (both of which I am a fan). I’d love to do a druid or fae cosplay one day..and this would work! SO yes, I like it.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? I used to love dark, rich, bitter beers. Unfortunately, these are no go on a gluten free diet.

Like booze? What kinds? Liquors, yes. No beers. Prefer Gin, but a good vodka is nice too. I don’t like super sugary drinks, but i do like craft cocktails and fun or unusual flavors. I love a good smokey mezcal (although i can’t drink it straight), but prefer only silver tequila. I like whiskey, but i’m finding that it often sets off my gluten response.

Like Wine? What kinds? Mostly Reds, but I don’t know too much about wines. I like smokey, oaky, vanilla, berry flavors, but don’t like too dry (if that makes sense). I like Pinotage and tend toward red blends. I’m a pretty big fan of the “Apothic” 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!
Yes! I love falls, but never got around to getting myself a pair. They were always a bit intimidating, either the cost or putting them in. I do have thin hair, which makes it difficult to secure them.

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 have to admit Hocus Pocus is the family favorite, every year must watch. I like a lot of the older Halloween movies, but not a huge fan of most horror. Aside from being open to ANYTHING Hocus Pocus themed, there’s no merch I can think of.

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/

Looking through the site there’s a lot I’d like to at least try(sample sizes?). The elasticizer serum, the soap bars (skincare set might be nice to try), charcoal scrub, lip salves, and even the beard oil for the S.O. (his goatee is also stiff!)

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? Since Halloween and Fall are among my favored seasons and decor, it’s easier to state what I don’t like/what to stay away from. I really don’t dig Halloween stuff that is: gorey/excessively gory/gross/disgusting (but anatomical type items, like diagrams, skulls, etc are very welcome) and anything really kitchsy and silly. I kind of hate silly Halloween stuff.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
I really like unusual, specialty and “foodie”/”Artisinal” candies. (E.g. Vosges) But..as always, they gotta be gluten free, which is difficult. Chocolate is my favorite candy. My favorite non-chocolate candy is gummies.

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?
Not at this time.

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? I think it’s cool in theory but I’m not sure I’d actually do it and not sure about the art...if the colors worked, maybe?

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
My hair is super thin, so most clips don’t work with in. I’m a fan of fasincators and mini hats (like on a headband)

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Honey! I also love local jams, as long as they’re gluten free. Really, any gluten free food.

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
Probably not. When it comes to makeup and jewelry I can be very selective. I know what i like. I do like the idea of some of the more unusual prescription services, but also am trying to cut down on “things” in the house. There WAS a Disney Haunted Mansion box that was making rounds a while ago that I would’ve bought (it sold out by the time I was aware of it) and I might be interested in a (gluten free) foodie box or books.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? Probably not. While I am gothic and tend to prefer halloween make up, I’m also kind of particular and much of the halloween costume make up doesn’t apply well or look good on me. The only exception is nail stuff. I LOVE halloween nail effects.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? Anymore, Pandora and Spotify are how I listen to music. I can still play CDs, but mp3s on a USB work too.

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?
Both. I like that Kindle books don’t take up space, but when it comes to any kind of reference material, I prefer being able to flip through. I don’t really dig gore horror, but I AM a fan of “classic” fantasy, sci fi and horror. I tend to prefer Lovecraftian type horror.


Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Yes. All of the above.

Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home?
I used really love “Dark Candles” but haven’t bought from them in a while. I am a fan of Yankee Candle too, but would like to support small, indie businesses.

Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders? Yes! I lost several of my holders across multiple moves when I was younger. I had some really neat halloween tart burners and diffusers that were lost.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? Yes! Well, kinda. I already have a lot, and have put myself on a buying hiatus buuuut if someone were to find something neat and fun (and related to what I already make) well then i wouldn’t say no.



9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
If possible, any gluten free goodies. I went to Japan before I was gluten free, and i miss all the fun baked goods, and candy. (I really miss kit kats!)

How do you feel about nail wraps? I’ve never used them! I did discover press on nails that actually looked good recently. As long as the wraps are easy to put on, I’d love to try.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? Handwarmers! Or even, wrist warmers! I live in Florida, so hats and scarves just don’t get used much, but my office is ALWAYS cold. I do also love hoods and cowls, even if I don’t get to use them often. Colors: black, dark "jewel tones" (deep/dark reds, purples, blues, greens), also blue/greens. No pastels please.

- would you use knitted washcloths? Probably not. Don’t use washclothes really.
a scarf? In the winter, so not often. I wouldn’t mind a very light, gauzy scarf or cowl.
Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? Not that I know of.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
Polgara. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polgara_the_Sorceress) She's beautiful, confident, a bad ass and has a sharp tongue.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? The future. I’m a spoiler (not for others tho)...anxious to know how things end. There are parts of the past that would be interesting to see… the time before man, the beginning of man, the domestication of the wolf (no really!). I’d love to see cities like Rome and Babylonia...cities that were bastions of civilization and technology (At their time).

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
Beth, Ted, and Lilith.


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.
Yes.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? Sure! I live in Florida, so items that are breezy and cool are a plus. I love dresses and skirts, and I like the look of “deconstructed” or altered tshirts.

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?
Although I am always looking out for new accessories and odds and ends for costumes and crafting, there isn’t anything specific that immediately comes to mind

SW 2017 Additional Q&A (Ketchup!) Part 1

Questions from 9/4 to 9/10:
(I can get the formatting for my answers to paste nicely so you can also see my answers here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1h4GB1X3sLuS7IhMiOe9RdV7LpHQVbL5IMq0AfDWEimQ/   I'm still working on it!)
  9/10/17

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

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? Maybe? I love the idea of spells and magic, but must confess, my heart and full belief isnt in it. I do love rituals and things with purpose and intention. If I were to receive or pursue something like this it would be for purposes of: creativity, insight/wisdom, career prosperity (I hate my job, and dont really want to pursue the Career I have a Masters in. Id love to be a full time writer, but it doesnt seem to be possible) and general financial prosperity,

Do you like poetry? Ehhhh Im very very particular about it.
Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
Maybe? Im trying to reduce things in the house that dont serve a purpose: stuffed animals, statues, etc. But, if its an especially creative or novel interpretation, or something that I really love (wolves, bats, science-y) I would be interested and make an exception.


Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? Yes, but! Knitting and yarn craft is at the bottom of my to do craft list.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? Sure!
In addition to the charities listed in my initial survey, I also support the American Diabetes Association.

Please provide wishes from the last two updates?
Im good on most of the updates. There are some things from this years Liliths that Im interested in trying (decants would be preferred):
BPAL:
Cemetary Creep
Daybreak
Do All the Good You Can
The Goddess of Mischief
Spectral Flower Girl
Vampire Princess

BPTP:
Wednesday's Child is Full of Woe
My Little Themysciran Princess
Zip Line




9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
Short answer: Yes! Ive never heard of them before, and browsing the site, theres a lot I have interest in. I feel like it would be too much to list everything, so lets just say Id love to try something!
I have dry skin, especially on my hands, so I cant have enough high quality lotion.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get? Nothing in particular that I think of, though I do love a good tea!

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? I dont absorb information well in the audio channel, so podcasts and audio books dont really work for me.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
Theres so much to see! The jewelry designs overall are lovely, so anything in my preferred colors (and without nickel) would be lovely. Nothing in particular stands out to me.
The candles, oils and teas all look and sound lovely, but Im not deeply into magickal rituals so I fear I wouldnt use them properly.


Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
Yes. All of them. I mean, I dont expect all of them,but everything on this link sounds amazing. If I had to chose one, the scent of Sisterhood of the Moon is especially good.


ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
Holos, Chromes, Glitter...yeah! I just ordered Americas New Gods Becoming Thunder and Zorya P nail polishes from BPTP so I dont need holos or glitter in those tawny golds. I would love any polish in a shimmery/glittery/holographic dark puple, green, red, black and grey.


9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
Yes! I recently started handwriting letters to friends and doing correspondence. I also really just love fun paper and pens and noteboos.

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Or Haus of Gloi?
Ive never tried Cocoa Pink, but would love to!
Of Haus of Gloi, their perfumes dont work well on me and the whipped soaps are drying on me, but I am interested in bubbling scrub, the pumpkin butter and candles.

HoG scents from the Halloween collection Im interested in: Samhain, Hex, Grimoire, Spider Silk, The Horseman.   Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
Yes! I used to make them myself but find them to be a huge pain in the ass. I used to have a raven feather wreath that has long since been too damaged to keep and I miss it.

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
All of the bath bombs sound interesting, but I dont take baths TOO often. The lord of misrule especially. The other bath bombs LOOK neat but without scent description Im not sure.

All of the soaps look great, and the black rose lip tint in the container.

9/7/17

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update?
I didnt even know about it until now! Oh my goodness. Ive never tried Moonalisa, so I just listed the Halloween scents that sound good to me.

Here are the scents Im interested in:
All Hallows Eve
Bayou mist
Blue ASpic 2015
Cassandra's Cauldron
Conjuring Room
Dusty Attic
Gilded Bat
Haunted Home
Mabon
Mad Heriot's Parlor
Sweetgrass amd S,ple

All of the scents from the "Green Witch" Collection

And the forms:
Alcohol perfume, argan oil sprayable shine, butter rich cream, cocoa cream, misters(!), room spray, soap bars, candles, perfume oils

Of course, I dont expect all of them! But those are what sounded interesting to me, and that I would use. I am especially interested in the misters.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground? Ground, because while I have a grinder, its not the best.

- Flavor and roast preferences? Medium to Dark roast preferred. I dont like flavored coffees too much because most of the time, it just tastes bitter or funny to me. I find I prefer African coffees. Really loving cold brew lately.

- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? Any all. I love tea. It just has to be gluten free (some teas contain barley/malt).
- Loose leaf or tea bags? Either, but I have strainers for loose leaf
- Anything specific you don't like? When it comes to tea, I dont think so

- Are you in need of any gadgetry? A nice grinder for coffee would be nice. It doesnt have to be expensive, just good enough to be consistent

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?
Yes, please! I have a small box, but a large box, or small tin for imps would be perfect!

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
- What are your faves if you are?
- If you aren't would you like to try something?
I havent gotten into the K-Beauty trend yet, so dont know anything about brands. Im a little hesitant to go outside of my usual skin care products, as my skin can be sensitive, and I cant have anything with wheat, barley, malt, rye or any of its derivatives. Wheat protein is often used in face lotions..

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 finally started cosplaying! Ive always wanted to, and finally did it! Ive also been interested in board games for a while, but this past year I was really able to get into it, buying, playing, and researching games, including deck builders. Ive recently discovered the joy of fountain pens, and am starting to do handwritten correspondence.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? Not a fan tbh.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
I love supporting indie brands, especially if they are female run. But, I have a LOT of eyeshadow already, and still havent gotten the trick of using loose shadow. Im starting to get into highlighters and lipstick now. Glittery and iridescent is a plus.

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
Ive been really interested in this stuff for a while now, actually! I love my coffee, but I thought it might be a nice change.

9/4/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1

Eep! Yes pls!
I kind of love all of them. I use Halloween to shop for my every day clothes, honestly.
I tried to narrow down to the ones I like best: Spellbound, Howl at the moon, Murder of Crows, Testing Witch Face, Wake me When.., Something Wicked, Tis the Season, Kitten of Death

Hello Witch! I look forward to meeting you!

Here's my answers from the original questionnaire, for your easy reference:
Switch Witch 2017:
SW 2017 Initial Questionaire Answers - Public

Forum Name: HonorAlexandria
Full Name: Jessica Wunder

====================
Basic Info

Pets: 4 cats! Pestilence, Famine, Squeaker, and Ivy.

Organizations/Causes/Activities (Things you belong to or causes you believe in):
Not an active member, but causes/organizations I believe in and support
American Cancer Society, Defenders of Wildlife, ASPCA
BPAL
Favorite BPAL oils: (in no particular order) Absinthe, Embalming Fluid, Dorian, Whip, Black Lace, Glowing Vulva, The Last Unicorn, The High Ranking Courtesan, Tiki King, CP: Insects, Dusky Shroud, Morocco, Haute Macabre, As Above, So Below, DeSade
Favorite notes: all Musks, rich woods, rich vanillas, teas, leather, night-blooming flowers, amber, oakmoss, tobacco, chocolate, coffee (but BPALs coffee note doesn’t usually work for me), roses (but my skin amps this, so have to be careful), “green” notes, aged patchouli
Favorite non-BPAL perfumes: No particular perfumes, and I haven’t tried many non-BPAL, but in general I like what I’ve tried from Possets and NaVa. Oh! I do REALLY love NaVa’s “Nag Champa Seahorse”
Least favorite notes: Jasmine, cedar (I like it but it turns to pencil shavings on me), powdery-notes, ozone (I love it but it doesn’t work on me), cassia carnation, anything powdery
Least favorite non-BPAL perfumes: I haven’t tried too many outside of BPAL. Haus of Gloi perfumes tend to be kind of plastic-y and don’t last long on my skin.
If Beth made a custom blend for you, what would the notes be, and what would you want the label art to look like?
This is a hard one. I have a lot of ideas for scents I’d like to try. But if I had to pick one(especially one evocative of me) it might be something along the lines of:
Dark musk, black tea, Leather and Oakmoss, sweetened with vanilla amber, black rose and a touch of sugar, and a hint of cognac. (Would that even work?). I’m not sure about the art. The teenager in me would want a darkly beautiful sorceress type woman. Adult me isn’t so sure.
Lifestyle
Style/home decoration style:
Dark colors/black. Gothic, Halloween and fantasy elements, themes, motifs. Skulls, bats, ravens are all great. I don’t really like goofy, kitchy or silly Halloween decor. Silly pumpkins are cute, but not around my house. Dark woods and metal are preferred colors. Also! I love coffee. A lot.
Favorite decorating colors:
Black, silver, dark woods (mahogany, cherry, etc), dark purple, dark reds
Things you collect: Wolves, BPAL (hah!), Fantasy related items, Coffee. Used to collect Monster High dolls but I’ve stopped. Trying to keep “items” down as our living space is small.

Artificial sugars and sugar substitutes (this includes sugar alcohols, splenda, etc).
Favorite flavors: Coffee! Vanilla, chocolate, berries, citrus, cream
Favorite foods/drinks:
Foods: uh. Most anything. Love different kinds of cheeses, and a good charcuterie/fruit, cheese, meat plate will make my evening. Fresh fruits. Tacos! Sushi.
Drinks: Coffee. Cold brew coffee is my favorite. Also teas (especially iced). Sangria, and any light, fruity refreshing drinks. Don’t like things that are very sugary. I’m a fan of craft cocktails, with Gin being my standard go to. I like whiskeys, but have to be careful as some are not gluten free.
Favorite authors/genres:
Genres: Fantasy, YA fantasy, some Sci Fi, Manga. Any books on writing or reference books for writing are high on my list too (As I’m attempting to write a novel and doing world building). Mythology reference. Science books.
Authors: This is hard. I don’t know that I can list favorite authors. There are authors I’ve read a lot of, and authors that I haven’t read much of but want to read more of. I’m also terrible at remembering names. Here are the ones that are at the forefront of my mind/reading list at the moment. I’m providing these partially to give an idea of what I read in general. Feel free to make suggestions/extrapolate/show me new authors based on this:
David Eddings( I own almost all of his books), Weis/Hickman(DragonLance), Terry Brooks, RA Salvatore, Neil Gaiman, JK Rowling HP Lovecraft, Diane Duane.

Reading wishlists:
Fiction: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/XLIWKO1C39KY/ref=cm_wl_list_o_4

https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/181NPXFMN8RN/ref=cm_wl_list_o_6
Least favorite authors/genres:
Stephanie Meyer and E.L James.
Otherwise there’s not any that stand out in my mind. I think GRR Martin has good ideas, but is not a very good writer.
Religious and Westerns would be the only genres I can think of that I have no interest in reading. Oh, and self help type books.
Books/authors you'd like to read, but haven't yet:
Brandon Sanderson, Mercedes Lackey(have read some, but not much, want to read more),Garth Nix(The Old Kingdom series). Also old classics fantasy sci-fi (War of the Worlds, The Time Machine etc. There’s a lot of classics I haven’t read!) I’ve never read the Wheel of Time series and I’m not sure how to feel about that.
I’m interested in the new Marissa Mayer book (Heartless) as I liked her previous serious.
Recently, I’ve been curious about the “Red Queen” series by Victoria Aveyard and “The looking Glass Wars” by Frank Beddor.
How do you feel about receiving gently used books as gifts?
No problem!
Favorite stores (including clothing stores):
Hard to answer, especially for retail stores I don’t really have any absolutely favorite stores. I’m kind of all over the place. I shop at Target a lot (sadly). I am a big Starbucks and Teavana fan. Sephora and Ulta are favorites. Yankee Candle, Hot Topic, Lunchbox, and BlackMarket mineral are places that I sometimes will find stuff I like.
Favorite online stores (including B&B stores):
Another hard to answer. I use Amazon A LOT these days. Some online stores that I like (and wish I could shop at more): Pyramidcollection.com, BPAL/BPTP of course, ThinkGeek, Villainess, Heavy Red, Retroscope, Black Milk, UrbanDecay,, Threadless, TeeFury are some that come to mind.
I don’t expect to get things from these places, some of them are pretty pricey. But it does give an idea of my style and things I like.
I’ve been interested in Paintbox Soaps, but have yet to try them.
Magazines you subscribe to: None
Magazines you like, but don't subscribe to: None
Favorite movies: Favorite” questions are so hard for me, because I have a bad memory. This is more “films I remember enjoying”: Wonder Woman(!), Avengers (and pretty much all of the Marvel films), the LOTR films, Crimson Peak, Disney films (especially the “Renaissance” films: The Little Mermaid through Atlantis), Star Wars, Star Trek (not the new franchise), Jurassic Park (yes, the original) ?? I don’t know!
Favorite TV show(s): Agents of Shield, Lucifer, Once Upon a Time (Seasons 1-2 at least), Dark Matter, Sherlock, Librarians
Hobbies/crafts done: Paper crafting, scrapbooking, jewelry crafting, painting, knitting, sewing (Starting to do cosplay) a little bit of everything!

Allergies (specifically B&B related): Nickel. Wheat/Gluten (in some lotions and hair products)
Other things to avoid: None.
Tub, shower or both? Both, usually shower.
Favorite bath & beauty products: Loved the BPTP soaps when they were available, and the Villainess produts. I haven’t experimented much with indie BB products but I do love “fancy” soaps and such. I would like to try new products!
Clothing Style/Fave garments: I tend for comfy and basic, although I do really love elaborate styles (I just don’t have the time). For reference, much of what’s in the Pyramid collection fits my every day style. Lip Service is a reference for my night/club/going out style. Love skirts, bell sleeves(And bell bottoms), I love dresses and skirts, but I’m not really into “girly” styles. (If that makes sense).

https://www.pinterest.com/girlnamedwinter/
https://www.etsy.com/people/WunderWolfDesigns/favorites
Favorite clothing colors/colors to wear: Black is a favorite.I am “goth”. Dark jewel tones, gray, blues/greens, and some earth tones are my next preference.
Type(s) of jewelry worn: I don’t wear much jewelry day to day, but I do like having pieces for going out, and more recently for costume pieces (cosplay, and belly-dance).

I prefer silver, or silver colored metals (steel, platinum, etc).

Jewelry - gold or silver? Silver! No gold.
Do you have any allergies to metal? Nickel! I can wear jewelry containing nickel for small periods of time, but not more than a few hours so I generally don’t buy it. Steel and Sterling Silver are best.

Favorite gemstones: I love garnets and onyx. I seem to prefer the gemstones and minerals that are less favored and non-precious: tigers eye, malachite, tourmaline, opal, etc.
Sock/Shoe Size: 8 women, wide
Random Questions:
- On a scale of 1-5, how organized are you?
3? I like to organize things, and the idea of being organized. My home, however, does not reflect that. I do love lists and list making
- Where, outside of the U.S. would you love to visit? (if you're international, this can be anywhere)
London, Germany, Scandinavia and New Zealand are my “travel here next” destinations.
-Where, inside of the U.S. would you love to visit?
Seattle again. New England. I also love the idea of visiting the different biomes in the US; deserts, forest, coastal areas.
-Favorite City in the US/World?
Not sure. I haven’t visited enough to say! I did really love Seattle and the Northwest coast in general.
- Do people tell you that you act older, younger, or your age?
Older, all my life. My mother used to say I was 12 going on 21.
-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)
Both! I’d mess with the cats, friends, coworkers first for a little bit. Then donate it. I’m trying to not have so many little things that don’t have a purpose. Our house is smallAnd of course, visit the IGI to thank.
- What animal do you feel like the most? Wolf
- Your favorite feature about yourself:
Physically: My cheekbones and eyes. Before I gained weight, my waist and hour-glass shape. (Curse you corticosteroids!).
Personality: My dark humor. My ability to be both pragmatic and creative.
- Do you live in a neighborhood or in the middle of nowhere?
Neighborhood.
-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.
I can’t think of anything right now, which means I will as soon as I submit this.
UPDATE!
Under $10: a charcoal or clay face mask, or something similar to deep clean pores and/or a nice pore refining/minimizing mask

Over $10: cute/gothy/artsy small cosmetic bag (around 4" x6"ish). I've been wanting and meaning to get one for my make up in my work bag but never manage to get around to getting one (or finding one I like) This might also be under $10.

- How do you feel about boi witches?
I’m still not even sure what is meant by this…
- Do you like garage sales (boot sales)?
Sometimes good for rare finds or deals,but I get a bit squicky about buying second hand furniture and such.
- I like to slather my food in …:
Nothing. I do like sauces and condiments, but nothing I use all the time.
- State fairs or carnivals?
Carnivals!
- 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?
A performer, I think. In this fantasy world I am pretty and talented enough to BE a main stage performer. While I’m an introvert and very self-conscious, I do enjoy performing.
At the same time, I enjoy being behind the scenes and “running the show”. Either would work.
- What mythical or fantastic race of creatures (dragons, unicorns, griffins, elves, dwarves, faeries, etc.) do you most identify with?
I love elves, but I myself am not very elf-like. In terms of identifying, I am most likely a Dragon. Or a Were-Wolf
- 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?
(I’m terrible at these things) Coffee, one of my coffee mugs(maybe my NanoWriMo cup, or one of my Halloween mugs), the tag from my German Shepherd Sascha(who has now passed away), one of my shiny d20, a wolf statue/figurine/image, a leather bound journal/spellbook, a beautiful writing quill, a zebra 201 pen (my favorite functional pen to write with), one of my favorite Fantasy books(David Eddings The Belgariad, perhaps, or Terry Brooks Magic Kingdom for nostalgia), A Diane Duane Star Trek: TOS novel, silver DNA charm, a “magic ring” (said anything we could imagine. I wish I could have a magic ring), My Nintendo 3DS loaded with all of the Zelda games, a beautiful shimmery black bellydance hip scarf, a map of the Universe (or at least the known Universe so far

- Do you need storage boxes/bottles/containers? Decorated or Plain?
Yes! Either - boxes, containers, bags. Decorated or plain.


- 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?
Write! Escape to a cabin in the middle of the woods, preferably during fall, with no internet (but basic amenities: electricity, hot water, coffee) and work on my writing (and perhaps some photography)
- Do you like steampunk & if so what kind of steampunk item would you most like to receive?
Yes! I’m not sure what I’d most like to receive though. My Steam Punk wardrobe, accessories and paraphernalia is very very small. Really, anything would be great, whether jewelry or even steam-punk life-accessories (USB keys, etc).
- Do you have an Etsy shop?
Yep! Although it hasn’t been active in a little bit.
WunderWolf Designs:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/WunderWolfDesigns
And, for reference, my etsy favorites and wish list:
https://www.etsy.com/people/WunderWolfDesigns/favorites
- Would you like to receive baked goods, if so what kind?
While I’m supposed to stay relative low-carb, I wouldn’t mind a surprise. That said I love baked goods, but they must be gluten free, which includes being made in a gluten free facility. I’m very sensitive to cross contamination. So homemade baked goods aren’t something I can do (unless you are also celiac and have a completely gluten free kitchen). Companies like Outrageous baking (http://www.outrageousbaking.com/ ) with dedicated kitchens are fine.
- What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions?
????
Notes (Here's where you can add additional information you'd like your Switch Witch to know!):
Shirt size! Medium/Large, although I am a bit large chested (38DD).

I hope this doesn’t sound presumptive (although the instructions said wishlists are helpful!) but for reference, here are my various wishlists. These are wishlists from all over my interests (so there are some pricey items). I certainly am not suggesting any of these items are purchased, but rather I hope they give an idea of what i’m interested in, like, etc.

Hand warmers/fingerless gloves would be okay, a lap blanket would be great though.   - would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
I probably would use both. I cannot do wool stuffs or hemp, itchy fibers make my skin red.   If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
This is such a hard question! I would be Jadzia Dax from Star Trek DS9, she was symbiotically fused with a Trill so even when she dies she will love on in Dax. Also, she is one badass mofo.   If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
The future, like where we are doing space travel and exploration. I want to live in the beautiful far future with peace and no money and replicators and instantaneous short travel.   If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
Felicia Day, Anne Bishop, Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I think it would be fun   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.

Not currently, no.   9/10/17   Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
Want to start sewing, I even have a machine, but nothing to use it on, no notations, etc.   Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
Sure. Needs to be breastfeeding safe if tea. Help finding myself, confidence, anti anxiety, making friends are all good ones.   Do you like poetry?

Yes, yes yes yes.   Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?

2017/2018 Update Notes and Bottle Love

Fatherhood 2017 -

0-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Vanilla cake with sprinkles and red velvet cupcakes, with a touch of climbing wisteria and sparkling apple cider.

I would sniff a decant of this, but I don't see myself needing a bottle.

A CUTE KID
Pale lavender and Tahitian vanilla with a smudge of chalk dust and a pop of strawberry bubblegum.

Bottle - I'm not sure about the bubblegum, but I love the lavender used in Liliths!

LIKE FATHER, LIKE DAUGHTER
Pomegranate cotton candy.

I love the bottle art but I'm not a cotton candy person, though I do like pomegranate. Sniffie territory.   MORNING IN THE CITY OF ANGELS
Sunflowers and California poppies, vanilla-tinged oak bark, and a spill of sugary breakfast cereal.

I'm not sure I'd enjoy this one.

MY LITTLE THEMYSCIRAN PRINCESS
Rich, sweet, valiant amber, coconut milk, honeyed saffron, gleaming gold-gilded leather, and sweet olive blossom.

Decant - Leather gives me pause,

SPINNING ON GRAVES
Dorian and lavender mist, crushed grass, cypress leaf, and a drop of clove.

I think I'd try a bottle of this one? Clove gives me serious pause, but I did like the clove in Mabel this year so...maybe. Dorian and Lavender in the same bottle is bliss usually, though, so I'd half-bottle for sure...but might blind bottle.

THE PILLORY
Caramelized rum ice cream with a splatter of berries.

Pass.

WEDNESDAY’S CHILD IS FULL OF WOE
A little kid’s interpretation of a gothy goth perfume: sugared clove and vanilla patchouli with cacao, dried Avignon rose petals, and a bit of black cherry.

I'd want a half-bottle of this one...maybe a fb based on reviews.

ZIP LINE
Brown leather and bourbon vanilla with honeyed oudh and cinnamon buns.

I'm generally not a leather person but this one does have me curious. I'd try a decant.

Motherhood 2017

Admete
Driftwood and sea salt submerged in a marine layer, a touch of sweet carnation, bright neroli, and a sandy strip of kelp.
This is one I labeled as blind bottle it. Sounds pretty awesome, though I'm not always an ambergris fan.   Apocalyptic Horseprincess
Crushed mint and neon lime, sour candy powder, and wild plum.
Pass.   Babys First Con Panel
The scent of the soft pretzel we hid in our backpack, plus a bit of leftover chocolate chip cookie.
Pass.   Brunch Witches
Pumpkin pancakes and berries in cream.
Pass.   Cemetery Creep
Marble-white musk, orris root, and vanilla blossom.
I'm super curious...I'm just afraid the orris will go baby powder. Otherwise...half bottle or decant.   Closet Raid
This is the scent of generations of children raiding their parents closets: my grandmother and mothers Chanel No. 5, my father and grandfathers Lilac Vegetal, my Snake Oil, and Liliths lavender blossoms.
This one is definitely on my check-reviews radar. I think a half-bottle would be great, or possibly a full bottle based on the reviews.   Dancing Among the Tombs
Osmanthus and jasmine, Spanish moss and dandelion, Snake Oil and Dorian.
Yes, yes, yes. Bottle.   Daybreak
Last nights lavender drops and a whiff of Pickles vanilla coconut pupper shampoo.
Blind bottle!   Do All the Good You Can
Madagascar vanilla and sweet patchouli with Yule pine, white fig, and almond blossom.
Pine gives me SERIOUS pause because pencil shavings/hamster bedding. However, if reviews come back positive I want a decant.   Do You Like Clowns?
Raspberry ice cream and a smear of black cherry lip gloss.
I'm watching reviews, but generally not my thing. I'd try a decant though.   Ego Sum Lux Mundi
Frankincense and myrrh with golden amber, green apple pulp, and white pear.
Curious, but going to hold off on it, though I would not say no to a decant.   Gas Masks and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails
Cotton candy and jellybeans with sugar cookie crumbles and vanilla frosting.
Pass.   The Goddess of Mischief
White lavender and sweet amber, green oudh, and inky musk.
I don't know what to make of green oudh or inky musk! Even so, I think a decant or half bottle.   Heck on Wheels
Red velvet confetti cupcakes and bubblegum.
Cupcake scents have been going plastic on me *cries* so pass.   Huntress
Funnel cakes, baked apples, and strawberry cream.
Mebbeh a decant? Not sure I'll enjoy it.   Little Photojournalist
Cathedral incense and rock candy.
Pass.   Paying Her Respects
Star jasmine and tobacco leaf.
I love star jasmine but I tend to amp tobacco so...hesitantly watching reviews. Decant maybe.   Pew! Pew!
Blue raspberry slushy, a bowl of strawberries, and microwavable popcorn
Pass.
Poke!
Coconut and red currant, red musk, and a pop of surgical steel.
Thinking about blind bottling this one. HB at a minimum.   Potamides
Honeysuckle and honey, water lilies and white sage.
Considering blind bottling this one too. Honeysuckle has been doing it for me and my mom said "Oh I bet it smells like the old lake place!" so, nostalgia factor.
Snowball Fight!
Snowballs and vanilla ice cream.
I'm hoping for a Snowblind! Bottle!   The Spectral Flower Girl
Black lilies, red roses, and babys breath.
Sounds like it could go Old Lady on me. Pass...but I will stalk reviews just in case...   Storyboard: Julius Caesar
Macerated myrrh, rose petals, and iris with frankincense and a splash of blood.
Pass.   Storyboard: The Tempest
Ivy and lime rind, marigold and moss.
Pass   Valuable, Powerful, Deserving
Golden amber, vanilla oudh, and orange blossom.
Haunting reviews hardcore. Hoping it's a hit so I can get a bottle.   Vampire Princess
Blood musk and lavender with bourbon vanilla, plum oudh, black patchouli, and Romanian wildflowers.
It has me curious. What's a blood musk like? I tend to rock bourbon vanilla. I think maybe a decant is in order, or a half-bottle.   Winter at the Capitol
The hope and valor of iris blossoms twined with chrysanthemums bold fearlessness, violets vigilance, oleanders caution, and white and red roses for unity.
Pass because violets.

  9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
- I am a planner addict! I like for my calendars to have moon phases. Dayplanners I prefer month view to week/day view.
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
- I love stationery! No dislikes I can think of. I love fancy pens and beautiful artwork/paper pads.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
- Yes!

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
- Oh, she has beautiful work!! A tote, mug, or phone case would be cool

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
- They have so much, I'm not sure where to look! I think this falls under the same category as the other similar website down in questions there; I have worked at World Market for so long, I'm kind of jaded on some of this style of "global" product. I like baskets, bags, purses, etc, but can be kinda finicky with the 'look' of it, if it looks too mass produced I'm less enthused by it.

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.)
- Oh for sure! I would love more tiered/decorated triangle shawls. I like woven wall tapestries like by Rachel Esperanza of WitchWeave and also have some knitted dragon-scale arm warmers on my Etsy wishlist. Chainmaille items would be cool too given my RAMPANT love for Renaissance Faire

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?
- Nope

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.

- Sure


9/24/17

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

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? At work, I sometimes get access to things like plastic free food containers, unpaper towels, beeswax food wrap, etc. for free. If that's something you could use (for your or your witchee), let me know.
- No

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
- I collect them but don't keep track of what I have or need. I think they're great fun and am going to eventually put them into one of those collage frames on the wall!

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
- These are quite lovely! As I said in regards to fanart, I may not have much to do with prints yet since I don't have anywhere to hang them. I also really like She Paints With Blood, she is a local artist whose prints I'd love to collect!

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
- Bats, cats, dogs, wolves, bees, unicorns, dragons

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)

What kind of crystals would you like?
- ALL THE GEMSTONES

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
- Either

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
- Chewy and soft! I like snickerdoodles and peanut butter cookies, but chocolate chip ones are good too!

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.)
- Omg, always.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
- These all sound divine!!!!

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
- Yissss gimme the honey

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
- Ohh, rose, peach, and strawberry rhubarb all sound divine!

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
- Hmm, I probably wouldn't use these, I'm pretty traditional with my pepper use

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.
- Yum!

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
- Yes, all!

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 Galaxy S7 and an ACER 11.5" Chromebook! I can always use phone cases and I have my laptop covered in decals of all my nerdy fandoms-- so little stickers and decals will find a home there!

9/21/17

So, question: Are any witchees into coloring books?
- Yes~! I have so many coloring books but hardly ever color, but I love how pretty they are and sometimes they make really cool fandom ones as well. I have a few of Johanna Banford ones and I think they're beautiful and fun. Maybe someday I'll make more time to use them, it's very therapeutic!
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?
- Everything looks delicious! I love orange, apple, and salted caramel candies the best.

9/20

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
- Business as usual, here, any fandom stuff is great! Licensed OR fan stuff since I love supporting artists, but I prefer items I can use-- like pencil boards or book marks-- to just fanart prints, which I wouldn't have anywhere to put and look at.

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
- What a great cause!! I love the copper bracelet and triangle earrings, batik leggings (I'd be a size M-L for most leggings) and the rings. Some of the little baskets and bowls are cool too but after working at World Market they are kinda similar to what I've worked with for over a decade!
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?
- I love musicals but haven't been able to see many in person! I really like the soundtracks from the Broadway Lion King,Phantom of the Opera, Rent, and Wicked; I was a big fan of Cats as a kid, haha! I don't know that there's anything merch-wise that I'd want, but I don't have any CDs (actually at all, even though I have a CD player in my car, lol) so that would maybe be an idea (or even burned CDs with sing-along music!)

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
- Other than "everything"?

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
- Not really

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 typically have country/rustic chic decor in my main living areas. When I had a crafting area I decorated it with lots of earthy/natural/fairy/fantasy style decor, it was my favorite place in the house but I currently don't have access to it since my boyfriend moved in and now it's half taken up by his kids' room. Someday I'll have a fun pretty area to decorate again. I'd like to get some cool gothic and witchy style cabinets and boxes for my altar area when I get a space again.

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
- I didn't list anything for wishlists for BPTP aside from everything, but for the record I am a L in their shirts (M in beloved tissue tees) and love them. I already own Bitches Love Unicorns, Live Deliciously, and a few other older designs from the grab bags, but kind of like collecting them. I've also been lusting for a pair of yoga pants (I love the Belladonna one).
- In other clothing news, because I'm currently shopping for clothes online and am thinking about it, I am a M-L in leggings and have been really into leggings and tunics this year.

9/19/17


Are you interested in anything from Think Geek?
- I love that site! I don't do a ton of shopping/browsing on there but I'm a sucker for all things nerdy.

9/18/17

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
- Yes! I have no problem with books with obvious wear.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
- Love em! I like to try out lots of things and don't mind if it's not full, or decanted.

So what are your favorite fandoms?
- No order: Harry Potter, Marvel, Disney, Hunger Games, Firefly, Stranger Things, Star Trek, My Little Pony
Socks: Do you wear them?
- Yes!

Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
- Not really. I tend to wear really goofy socks. My job requires a work shoe at all times so I wear socks summer and winter there, and usually get ones with fun or goofy logos and patterns on them so I have a little secret in my shoe. <3 Work socks are usually crew, but I also wear knee high, ankle, and those ballerina-flat style ones. I like fuzzy warm ones in winter, and nerdy themed ones!

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!
-Oh, I'd love lavender for spellwork. I don't use it much for cooking! But if you find thyme, oregano, provencal herbs, etc, I'd be down for all those for cooking!

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?
- Yes yes yes! I read runes and use a pendulum. I have a book on runic palmistry that I find fascinating and would love more palm reading material. I also have been interested in 'witches runes/staves' (they're not Nordic runes, I see them often and I'm not sure if they're an actual system or an arbitrary symbol set) and oracle pins. I also own the Earthbound Oracle. In Tarot I'm less versed but trying to learn it! I currently have The Illest Tarot and The Fountain Tarot. Although I am getting a bit of a "gotta catch em all" with Tarot, I don't have any specific sets on my wishlist. **Edit** except the TrueBlack Tarot kickstarter which is too expensive for a Witch gift but if you like Tarot, my Witch, go look at it!!

Would my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
- Yes!! Either would be nice. I'm especially into astrology/natal chart reading, though.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
-Allllllll of them. Seriously, even if I have it, I need moar. All the magic things! Anything involved with the goddesses Hekate, Brigid, Morrigan, Freyja, or Odin, Coyote, Loki, or even general ones. I am into hoodoo and rootwork, and am a gem fanatic. I'm working on amping up my herb collection. Any magickal teas, candles, etc. I love Nui Cobalt's candles and need all of them. I should still have a lot of TALs on my etsy wishlist (jennevieve59).

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
-Witch, I'm sure you've realized by now that I'm aggravatingly amiable. "Yes! But I've never tried it so I'd like anything!" lol, sorry, My Witch. <3

(for no reason I switched here between questions in bold and answers in plain, to vice versa. Sorry, I'm just dumb...)
9/16/17

How do you feel about chokers?
I am really into chokers this year! I've been wearing multiple-- and multiple necklaces-- in tandem together. Necklaces are this years' stacking rings for me

This has also sort of been mentioned but what are your favorite homemade treats? Popcorn balls? Candy apples? Pumpkin Cheesecake?
Oh nomm! Caramels and fudge, probably. <3 But candy (caramel) apples too!

Favorite gemstones?
So many! Labradorite, hematite, tiger eye, moonstone, sunstone, citrine, druzy, turquoise, garnet... the list goes on!

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
I wear both, but most of my pieces are larger.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
Oh yes!! Both, I am an avid Renaissance Fair attendee and costumer <3

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
EVERYTHING

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?
Those are SUPER cute!! I would love any style! I love Ween decor!

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 somewhat close to one, but have never been!

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I cook and love fancy spices, oils, salts, etc. I don't need any more kitchen gadgets or utensils, unless they're too cute to pass up (I'm a kitchen-stuff-hoarder.)

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
No

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
I love the surprise, there's not anything specific that I'd love. I'm sure I'll love whatever I get!

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
Oooo that'd be neat! I rarely use stamps, though

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?
Yes! I have dogs and cats. The dogs prefer treats to toys because their favorite game is "sleep on mama," but the kitty loves toys, lasers, and catnip.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
I don't follow most other perfume brands, so this would fall under the same category as other scents; I love to try new things and might find an unexpected favorite!

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)
Oh I love anything BPTP! Here's some picks from the new releases:
Fatherhood: My Little Themysciran Princess / Spinning on Graves / Zip Line
Puppers: Ella / Lola / Pa-Pow / Pickle

Any, though I don't like mint, cinnamon, or licorice flavors very much

Like Wine? What kinds?
All

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!
I don't know if I'm smart enough to use them? Hahaha My hair is so short right now it's probably not something I would use.

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?
Hocus Pocus, The Witches, The Worst Witch, Practical Magic, the Craft, Rocky Horror Picture Show... well, I watch these all the time, but they're Halloweenie. I love fan made merch for any fandom/nerd stuff! I like horror movies but don't watch them often.

9/12/17

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?

I'd be happy to receive any of the Activism blends, as well, and-- as always with me-- I'm open to trying anything because I often love things I don't think I would based on notes alone! My collection is mostly older scents, so anything new would be fun.

Switch Witch fall 2017, part deux

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?-not really a gamer, I play a few things on my Kindle Fire for fun but not sure if there is any merch there,
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? love em all. Just because I knit and crochet does not mean I don't love to get yarny gifts from others. Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy!

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? nope. Tried many kinds. Do not like beer. Now hard cider, that I love. Strongbow Golden Apple & Woodchuck Fall are my faves.

Like booze? What kinds? rum, bourbon, Jack. I like them in coke and such.

Like Wine? What kinds? sweeter, mostly. Moscato on the white side, and Sweet Walter red, are my faves. Don't like dry.

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! huh, never thought about it. I would love anything my witch makes.

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 try to watch Nightmare Before Christmas, Young Frankenstein, and Rocky Horror! And anything from those is welcome. I caution however that I don't have much time for cleaning with full time caregiving, so knick knacks and dust catchers, while appreciated, will probably be put away so they don't have to be dusted. lol

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ I posted this question, lol. I buy this at my local Kroger actually.

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? I like Dia de los Muertos, and fall non-Halloween-specific, simply because that way they can stay up from Sept 21 to the weekend after Thanksgiving. lol

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? candy yes! preferably chocolate, but also like those Sweettarts skulls and bones, lol. Reeses, Kit Kat, Snickers, Twix, teeny Hershey bars, I could go on and on.

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? not really, thanks

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? sure! I am not good at it but I try, would love to see somebody else's.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? sparkly rhinestone bobby pins are the only thing I can think of that i use.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? yes please

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? don't know much about them.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? not really, as I won't get out again this year to use them.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? cd's, Pandora

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? Kindle or actual=yes like them both. Any books are welcomed.

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 have a good wax melter and a good incense burner. I like all of the above. I love Super Tarts wax melts the best--https://shopsupertarts.com/
Here's the scent list-- https://www.facebook.com/notes/super-tarts-and-sassy-soaps/scent-descriptions/595981633802121/
Ones I want to try include Catwoman, Deadpool, Gamora, Ballgame, Luke and Leia, Saw, Texas Chainsaw, Red Rum, Butterbeer, Giles

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? of course. I make stuff.
 
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? a door banner would be neat!

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? yes but it might as well be on the moon. I can't go anywhere without taking mom anymore and that makes trips short and hurried of necessity. I would love anything they have.


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? one of my cats likes catnip but I make her a mouse every now and then. The other could not care less.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? yes! I would like backups of Jack's Halloween Oudh and Sisters of the Moon.

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) will check when I get time

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I don't think so

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 like short socks- like the kind that comes only up to the ankle or just below. No fiber preference!

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Yes

Yes
So what are your favorite fandoms?
Disney everything, Hannibal (the TV show), Harry Potter

I LOVE lavender everything!
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?
Not really into divination

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
That would be cool... I don't really know what time I was born, though.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
No

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
I am in too much of a rush right now to look at their specific offerings but I am always open to trying new soaps.

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
Chunky and kitschy
Any love of pirates or SCA?
Not particularly
Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
I asked this question because I am going to WDW in a few days! Sooo I will be buying a bunch of stuff myself, haha.
Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
Yes. SLYTHERIN!

How do you feel about chokers?
No thank you

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?
A vertical door type Halloween banner would be cute!

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?
Literally the only thing I like about our current house is its proximity to Trader Joe's. I love Trader Joe's and pumpkin everything but I definitely have easy access to all of their goodies already!
Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
Yes to both cooking and baking, but nothing specific comes to mind! Interesting spices and salts would be cool though!
I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
I can't think of anything in particular but I do love the beach.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
No thank you!

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?
My kitties are picky and mostly not interested in treats, although they both love catnip. My pug LOVES stuffed squeaky toys (he will only play with soft toys- nothing rubber or plastic). He loves treats (being a pug) but they have to be grain-free and he can't eat pork.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
Nope
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)
I'm interested in a few of the hair glosses and I think one or two of the Fatherhood scents but I will probably be placing a BPTP order of my own pretty soon!

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?
I am not much of a gamer but I have a 3DS that I love and play all the time. I love everything related to Animal Crossing. I also like Pokemon a lot!

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!

Of those, I really like the chevron and the leafy!

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
I don't drink a lot of beer but I like IPAs and fun seasonal stuff. I love hard cider.
Like booze? What kinds?
Scotch and other kinds of whiskey, rum, interesting flavored stuff

Like Wine? What kinds?
I am just getting into wine. I love champagne and sparkling wine, and I really like red wine as well. I definitely prefer my wines to be on the dry side.
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!
I don't know what a hair fall is... but I probably would not wear it.
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?
This year, I am actually planning to celebrate the whole season by watching a new-to-me horror movie (mostly- other seasonally appropriate stuff can make the list, too) every day of October. Recommendations are welcome! Otherwise, Nightmare Before Christmas is my traditional Halloween movie (I love Christmas too and basically start getting ready for it the day after Halloween- sorry, Thanksgiving- so it provides a nice segue, haha). Last year I watched Trick R Treat for the first time and loved it and I feel like that is now mandatory Halloween viewing. Also Hocus Pocus is a totally nostalgic classic for me- I used to watch it every Halloween as a kid! Any kind of merch is great, too!
9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
I would definitely try the soap!
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
I like pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons, black cats, and bats! Pumpkins are my favorite! I like things on the cute side of spooky and stay away from gory or gross imagery. I also really, really, really hate spiders so no spiders please!
Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
Yes, any or all of the above!
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?
I am a fidgety person but I have played with a fidget spinner and it did absolutely nothing for me. I do like having silly little toys and stuff on my desk, though!

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
I have no idea what that is...

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
No, I don't really wear anything in or do anything to my hair (besides dye it).
What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Any of the above for sure!
Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
I already subscribe to WAY too many boxes so no thank you!
Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
Hm probably not.
How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
I use Spotify almost exclusively. I also have a small vinyl collection and sometimes listen to records at home.
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 use my kindle a lot but I also like buying and receiving physical books. I read mostly fantasy, horror and historical fiction.
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 love incense and candles. Halloween candle holders sound cute! I just bought some cute black cat tealight holders at Target. I wouldn't use a wax burner and I already have incense burners and a diffuser that I am really happy with.
Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
I am not super crafty, but if you found a super cute cross stitch pattern or something, that would be great!

9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
Nothing too specific comes to mind, but I love Japanese candy and snacks! I also collect a lot of Sanrio and San-x so I would love random cute kawaii stuff. (Especially Gudetama and Sumikko Gurashi!)

How do you feel about nail wraps?
I don't think I would use them.

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?
No fiber allergies that I know of! I am mystified by knitting and would be impressed and amazed by anything you could create for me. I would probably get the most use out of a scarf (in bright colors! or slytherin colors!) or gloves.
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 think I have one or two things from there on my Etsy wishlist.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
That would be awesome! I am not sure of my measurements though.
Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?
no thank you.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
Nothing particular comes to mind...

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, for what purpose would you want it to be made?
Sure, why not? I could use something that would help me to stay focused and achieve my goals.

Do you like poetry?
I'm not really into it but if there is something you really think I would like, go ahead!

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

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
No thank you; I am not a crafty person, sadly.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?
That is a nice idea

Please provide wishes from the last two updates?
The Drunk Astronomers, Little Photojournalist

9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
This thread is introducing me to too many new companies. A lot of their autumn collection sounds awesome! I would be interested in the scrubs, whipped soap, regular soap, and body whip!

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
I can’t think of anything specific, but I always love trying snacks and candies from other countries!

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?
I listen to a TON of podcasts, mostly true crime. My absolute favorite is My Favorite Murder and I would definitely be happy with some merch!

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
No thank you!

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
Any of these candles sound nice. Also I had never heard of this company before and now I want to order their seasonal box, so thanks for that.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
I love how crazy sparkly these are! Charmed looks particularly amazing to me. Then I looked up MEGA and omg! I would definitely wear one of these.

9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
I always like cute stationery- notebooks, stickers, pens, #2 pencils (I am taking a big scary test in a couple of months!).

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Or Haus of Gloi?
I’m already a fan of Haus of Gloi (I like their scrubs and whipped soaps), but I have never tried Cocoa Pink! I am always interested in trying new b&b companies, though!

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
Yes, I would definitely display something like that!

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
Unfortunately EVERYTHING that looks good to me on that list is tub-only! The next house we buy NEEDS to have an awesome bathtub, seriously.

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update?
I have never tried Moonalisa so I don’t really know anything about them, but I will check it out! All Hallow’s Eve, Bayou Mist, Blue Aspic, Bonfire, Conjuring Room, Dusty Attic, Gilded Bat, Haunted Home, Rumpkin, Sleepy Hallow and Sweetgrass and Smoke all sound good.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground?
- Flavor and roast preferences?
I love coffee and prefer whole bean. I am open to any roast really! I tend to not like flavored coffee but make an exception at this time of year for pumpkin spice!

- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors?
- Loose leaf or tea bags?
I like strong black teas and sort of savory green tea like genmaicha. I prefer loose leaf!

- Anything specific you don't like?
Not really? I guess just strong artificial flavor type coffees.

- Are you in need of any gadgetry?
I am mostly set in this department, although I always like new coffee mugs. I also have been looking for something that will keep my coffee warm in the morning after I make it (I use a chemex- or sometimes a french press- and within like 15 minutes the coffee left in it after I have my first mug is too cold for me to drink!). I bought a lid thing for the chemex but it does not really seem to help.

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?
I just got an antique card catalog which fits my bpal collection *perfectly* and I am really happy with that! I could use something small for bringing perfume with me when I travel, though!

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
I have tried a few things and would definitely be interested in trying more!

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 started eating low carb a few months ago (we started out doing keto, but it was difficult for me because I don’t eat meat, so I started upping my daily carb count and I am still seeing progress so I plan to continue this way for a while). I try to stay flexible and plan regular cheat days for my own sanity, so don’t worry about sending me anything carby, haha.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
Not a fan

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
I am pretty happy with most of my existing makeup and find that I just end up making a mess with loose eyeshadow and stuff, haha. I am always looking for the perfect red lipstick, though, so that is something I would be interested in!

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
This sounds really good! I would definitely be interested.

9/4/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
No thanks; I never wear t-shirts.

Switch Witch HALLOWEEEEEN 2017 part two

Part two!

would any witchees be interested in NASA swag? I'm now super-close to Marshall Space Flight Center and will be visiting the space center with my kiddo pretty regularly. If so, what would you like? Clothes, a mug, magnets, a plush Snoopy wearing a flight suit?
Usable stuff is always neat! Like a towel or a travel mug.
does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/
I've never tried any of their stuff! I would be very much interested in trying something. Gehenna looks especially intriguing (dragon's blood!).

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/
Hair glosses! Absinthe-laced Candied Apple, Autumn Cider, I Foamed! I Raved! I Swore! And Pomegranate Clove bath oil. Also, any of the atmos sprays look interesting.

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?
Sure! Just nothing spicy. And no candles. Wax tarts are okay, but I can't have open flames because my cats don't understand fire.

Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com
Lip stuff! Especially Bonbon, Desire, or Cincinnati.

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)?
I think I'm set for eyeshadow right now!

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?
Very positively! Especially Badtz-Maru, Aggrestuko, or Little Twin Stars.

Would you like to get some favorite recipes?
Sure! Especially if they're things that you can make on Sunday and reheat or freeze to eat later. It's just going to be me eating it, so it has to store and reheat well!

Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut?
I think I'll pass. The cowls are neat, but I already have one from you that I love!
Haus of Gloi?
Anything but bathing dust in Apple Milk, Blood Orange Marshmallow, Red Roan, Persephone's Descent. Any of the whipped soaps. Lip balm.

How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions
They're adorable, but they're not really my style.

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
Mitts! Especially the owl mitts. Those would be awesome for my commute.

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Golden Champaca Attar, Sampaguita, Apple X.

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Candles! My cats are assholes who do not understand fire = DANGER. Also baked goods that need to be consumed within a few days. I'm *horrible* about this. Shelf-stable stuff or things that can go in the freezer are okay.

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
Ooh, The Reader, Hail to the Freaks, Starman, Spell of Ravensong, Danse Macabre. I'm not so sure about a print unless it was already framed (ask me about my to-frame print collection!), but on something like a pillow/makeup bag/tote bag/etc. would be lovely.
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?
The style, yes. Decorative items sturdy enough that they wouldn't get wrecked if dropped from a height of three feet (because cats!), sure. Wearable items like earrings, collars, masks, not so much.

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?
Aw, man, some of the sold out lip balms (cherry ginger ale, Earl Grey Tea, blood orange) would have been awesome. Of the not-sold-out ones: Lemon creme, Meyer lemon cupcake, orange clove, strawberry lime margarita. Lemon creme body butter would be nice, too.

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners?
I use a wall calendar at work, but it needs to be work-appropriate. I usually end up with a kaleidoscope calendar because those are completely noncontroversial.

If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
I don't really use stationery.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?
OH HELLO THIS IS MY WEAKNESS. I don't like paperclips with a thick coat of plastic, but if it's just colored metal, that would be awesome. I agonize for *ages* over which neat post-it pads I want to get because I love them all so much.

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
Holy bats, YES. A travel mug, tote bag, pillow, or carry-all bag would be amazing. Anything but the stripes. Also any of the stickers (except The Goat. He's not really calling to me) on a white background so they really pop against my journal cover. Any of the all-over print t-shirts in xxl. Lined notebook. Gah, the more I look at her stuff, the more I want!
Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
Holy wow. I think I want everything.
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.)
All of the above! Except chain maille if we're talking jewelry. And I don't really wear enough hats to warrant getting another one. Colors: Green, purple, blue, hot pink.

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 don't collect anything, but it would be nice to have a dishwasher-safe travel mug that fits in a car cupholder.

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.
Ooh, *yum*. It might just be because it's time for me to have dinner, but those all sound wonderful. I'm very pro-nuts-in-fudge.

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)
Hard pass on anything spicy.

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, although if there is one with a black cat on it, I would love it. I collect black cat things!

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
These are super pretty (especially Nostalgia)m but I'm super behind on getting prints I already own framed and hung!
Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
Man, this is actually a hard question for me because I love animals. Just to name a few: Black cats, otters, seals, bears, sloths, Sasquatch. For starters.

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)
No, thank you.

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
I would like decants! I want to support the Lab's Activism line, but I'm on the fence about wanting a full bottle of either of these.

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?
Pass on this.

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
The Halloween foaming hand soaps! Especially Better Have My Candy, Ghoul Friend, or Vampire Blood.

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'm not really into crystals.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Hmm... I love cookies. It might be easier to say I hate raisins and bananas, I don't like fruit with chocolate, and NOM NOM NOM COOKIE!

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.)
This sounds like it would be really nice for winter leg cramps!

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
I'll pass. I'm not really a drinker.

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
Yes!

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
Ooh, blackberry is my favorite! Cherry might be good, too.

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
Hard pass on anything spicy.

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 apples (and I love Honeycrisps!), but I'm not really a fan of dehydrated apples unless they're the crunchy-like-a-potato-chip freeze-dried style.

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 love bags! Something that would encourage me to pack a lunch for work would be especially neat. Pillowcases would be neat, too.

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
Ooh, yes! Those look delicious!

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
No, unfortunately, I'm in a shower-only household.

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?
iPad mini, iPhone 7, 13" Macbook. I'll pass on things for the iPad and iPhone (I love the cases/covers I already have for them!), but something for my laptop would be cool.

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?
See's was my family's Fancy Chocolate growing up! I love pretty much everything they make except chocolate with orange or berry flavors.

Are any witchees into coloring books?
Huh. I just realized I've never bothered even trying to dabble in coloring books as an adult. I would probably love them if I tried them!

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
Uhoh. This is the part where I get lost on a website for three days. I love this sort of thing. So pretty much everything? Especially the Nessie kitchen stuff.

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
Just one! It's a one-human household.

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?
My favorite musical is Avenue Q! Or maybe Hamilton. Or maybe Hedwig and the Angry Inch (is that Broadway?). I also listen to the soundtracks for The Book of Mormon and Chicago a lot. Scanning over the list of current Broadway plays, in an ideal world, I would go see 1984, Kinky Boots, and/or Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Or A Clockwork Orange, if off-Broadway was allowed. I would love merch from a show! I think I have cds of everything there are cds for already except Kinky Boots.

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
A NYCC shopping bag! One of those nice heavy-duty reusable ones. I'm a bring-my-own-bags-to-the-store shopper. I don't know if they have them, though. I would love to have a collection of those bags from different comic cons all over the country/world, so this answer would apply to all cons, but the only ones I definitely know that have them are Rose City and Emerald City. One of those con-exclusive Moleskines would be neat, too. As far as Lab/Post NYCC exclusives go, any of the hair glosses (but especially Honeyed Apple), the bath oil, Broadway, II, III, IV, VI, or VII. It all looks amazing!

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
Sure! I love cons!

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
The healing oils, coffee cup warmer, pretty much any of the scarves/wraps or sling bags

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
Pretty much all of my bath products and makeup come from indie shops, and that list is probably too long for this post!

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!
Wax tarts, incense, oven mitts/potholders (especially if they were fannish), and kitty toys (especially local catnip). And then I would double back for a second round through the show to see what else there is!

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I made a wishlist!
http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/gimme.cgi?wid=823c68eb7&icpg=wishlist_share_823c68eb7

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
I haven't bought any Weenies from either the Lab or the Post in a few years! The past couple of Halloweens have sucked for me for various reasons, so I'm super excited to get back into things this year.

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...)
I've noticed a lot of people make sure to state their level-of-horror/style-of-Halloween preferences, so I might as well mention: I like pretty much all styles of Halloween, and I'm a huge fan of horror of all types. Slow burn, goofy slapstick, full-tilt terror you name it. I have a very high threshold for scariness in horror, and I'm not a fan of jump scares and torture porn because I feel like those are shortcuts for very lazy storytellers, but there is not any such thing as too scary in my book.

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.
Secret lair/workshop of a billionaire superhero. Or art nouveau bordello. One or the other.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
I don't wear them, primarily because I don't have one! I would want one for cooking.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll)
I'll have to pass. This looks like it would immediately become a cat toy no matter how hard I tried to protect it from my monsters.
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 chunky calves, so if we're talking socks from a place like Target, I go for ankle or crew socks. Sock Dreams has a great selection of plus-size socks, so I also love over-the-knees and knee-highs from those sections as well as Sock It to Me's Stretch-It line! Basically, I wear all lengths, depending on how stretchy they are. I'm not really particular about fiber, although if they're fuzzy slipper socks, I desperately need tread on them. I'm *really* klutzy!

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Definitely. How else am I supposed to know if a book is good if someone else hasn't loved it first?

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Absolutely awesome. Decants, too.

So what are your favorite fandoms?
I feel like I might have listed those on my questionnaire. If not, right now, those would probably be Mr. Robot, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter (it's my Halloween-through-Christmas tradition!), Westworld, Marvel movies/Netflix shows (my favorite from the Netflix shows: Jessica Jones), Supernatural (although I won't be watching the new season until it hits Netflix), and Gotham (IT IS A TRASHY FANFIC ACID TRIP, AND I HEART IT). And, of course, horror. It wouldn't be Halloween season without a horror movie a day.

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!
Lavender is lovely!

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'm interested in it, but I don't personally do it, mainly because I don't have a clue where to start. I own a few tarot decks (Rider-Waite, Alice in Wonderland, and gummy bears), but I have no idea how to use them. I would definitely be open to trying pretty much anything (book, tool, whatever) if you had a beginner's sort of thing in mind.

Would my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
That would be super cool.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
I can't think of any. I'm not particularly magickal. I'm not opposed to it. I have just never explored it.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
Pass. I can't use bar soap.

Favorite gemstones?
Amethyst! I'm supposed to like garnet since I'm a January baby, and it's okay, but I'm also an Aquarian, and amethyst has my heart. (Amethyst and green garnet make a great combination, though, because I love purple and green together!)

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
No jewelry, please.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
I love pirates! I just realized that my answer to the next question might be interpreted as being related to this. It's actually not.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
Something Pirates of the Caribbean (I have a personal family story behind this one) or Haunted Mansion!

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
A bit! I have all of the movies (except Fantastic Beasts, which I don't care about as much as I care about the original series) and watch them leading up to Christmas every year. Ravenclaw to the core. Except that one weird time that I took a Game of Thrones/Hogwarts hybrid quiz and got Hufflepuff for some strange reason. I retook it and got Ravenclaw!

How do you feel about chokers?
Pass. I don't wear jewelry, and on the very rare occasions when I do, it's long dangly necklaces.

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?
Those are really cute! But banners in general are not really my style.

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?
Trader Joe's is my main grocery store! I'm not a pumpkin fan, though. I think the only pumpkin thing I like is their pumpkin spice rooibos tea.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
Not much of a cook. I can always use more spatulas or spoons/slotted spoons for cooking things like soups and pasta sauces since I do like to make big batches of various things to stock my freezer with single servings that I can just microwave for quick meals. I do like to do bento boxes, but i haven't done those for years because I moved and tossed all of my supplies, and I haven't bought new stuff beyond one bento box I keep forgetting I own.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
Something pirate-y? I'm not really a beach person.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
Beyond something that could be used year-round, I don't really know. And by "used year-round," I just mean something that will hold up to regular use, like a houseware, versus something intended to be used/consumed just this year and then tossed. Halloween isn't just for October!

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
Funny you should ask that. I would actually love some.

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 think I answered this in my questionnaire, but if not: I have (or do they have me? It could go either way) six-year-old indoor kitties. One is a seventeen-pound hunk of British blue-looking burning love named Oscar, and the other is a much smaller clearly-from-a-feral-bloodline ball of cuddly skittishness name Edgar. They like crunchy treats (and they're not picky about type or flavor beyond "crunchy") but seem to be very oddly scared of soft treats. Their favorite toys are dangly things like Cat Dancers, and they like strong locally-grown catnip for they are Portland stoners (I think the stuff you can get in places like Target sits on the shelves for a long time and loses its potency).

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
Potion n. 113, Blood Bond, Boogieman, Number 29.

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)
Decants for oils/sprays are awesome! Fatherhood: My Little Themysciran Princess, Spinning on Graves, Wednesday's Child Is Full of Woe Doggies: Granite, Pa-Pow GCs: Humanitas bath oil; Snake Oil, La Roue de Malheur, Mischief, Red Incense, Who Is Nibbling at my House? hair gloss; Cathouse, Down the Rabbit Hole, Erebos atmos sprays; Allure, Lullaby, Temple of Dreams, America's New Gods, Becoming Thunder, Coin Trick, Czernobog, Laura, Mad Sweeney, Mister Wednesday, Mr. Nancy's Gloves, Zorya Polunochnaya claw polish.


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?
Nope. I think Gummy Drop on my phone is the extent of my gaming. I don't even play board or card games.

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)?
They're all so pretty! Especially the leaf one. Basically, I love really long scarves that I can wrap around my neck a bunch of times.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
Like booze? What kinds?
Like Wine? What kinds?
I'm going to group these all together: I'm not much of a drinker. I'm not opposed to it. I just don't.

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!
I'll pass. I have very short hair not conducive to hair accessories. Plus these look like something that would just end up being stolen by my cats!

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?
It's not Halloween without Donnie Darko, Trick R Treat, and The Lost Boys. Some I try to watch every year but don't always manage to get to: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Scream, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Ginger Snaps, The Evil Dead/Army of Darkness, and probably a few more I'm blanking on (but not Nightmare Before Christmas. That's a Christmas movie for me). Fan merch is fun!

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
Any of the liquid soaps, body oils, hand creams, butters -- pretty much anything but the bar soap.
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
Love black cats, bats, skulls, rats, haunted houses... Really, anything but spiders. I *hate* spiders! As far as non-Halloween autumnal things, um, *everything*. Autumn is my favorite season! And Dia de los Muertos.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
Sweet tooth! I have one! I love pretty much any Halloween candy (except black licorice or circus peanuts), and specialty/local candy is extra-awesome.
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?
I love frivolous things! Except I'll pass on a fidget spinner. Those specifically make me agitated for some reason.

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
Ooh, these look intriguing and relaxing. I have no experience with them, but I would love to try them.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
No, I don't really have enough hair or the right type for this sort of thing. I have a pixie, and it's too fine and silky to hold accessories!

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Yes. I love local goodies. When I go on vacation, I try to go into grocery stores and find their local stuff. Chips, candy, jam -- it doesn't matter as long as it's yummy!

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
I love them! I'm fairly set as far as the big beauty names go, although I've seen some Asian beauty ones that are intriguing that I haven't tried yet. I don't subscribe to any magazines at all.
Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
Hmm... Nail effects. I'm not really an eyelash person, and dark lipstick isn't really my style. I wear funky eyeshadow colors, but I don't really do costume makeup.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
Mainly iTunes and amazon! Wait. Not mainly. Exclusively, now that I think about it.

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?
Format doesn't really matter. I just love reading!

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?
Anything but candles! Open flames + my very inquisitive kitties = BAD THINGS. They don't seem to have this problem with incense or wax tarts/burners. As far as brands go, I don't have favorites. As far as scents go, I don't really have favorites there, although "white" notes are not for me.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
I think I already answered this somewhere! I don't really craft, but I'm interested in learning how to knit.
How do you feel about nail wraps?
I love them! Especially Espionage Cosmetics (I have worn EC wraps steadily for two or three years now). Not so much Jamberry because I don't own a hairdryer, and that's a step I'm not willing to do anyway since Espionage wraps are so much easier.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
I'm set for hats, but a cowl or sleeves (the tube kind without thumbholes) would be nice. My desk at work is directly under an HVAC vent that will randomly start blowing cold air on me even on the coldest day of the year! Hot hot pink or pretty much any shade of green or purple (or green *and* purple) are my kinds of colors.
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
Yes, yes, and yes! I'm allergic to wool. I love soft, silky stuff like chenille (and washable, because I *will* spill hot cocoa on it) for wearables, but I prefer cotton for washcloths.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
I'm going to have to think about this one.
If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
This is another gotta-mull-over-it question.
If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
Another ponder. (The three-famous-people question always gives me problems regardless of context!)
