And yet another set of Switch Witch 2020 questions

Would you like any of Snag Tights’ Halloween offerings and if so, what size?             In the US sizing I wear an F (NOT the short F).   Skullz-Forbidden Fruit or  Disco spider   Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preference?  No real preference.   Witchee, do you like tea? If so, what kind?  Love tea, it runs in my veins.  There’s a couple of tea wishlists in my sig file.   Witchee, do you want anything?  Shirts, mugs, postcards from Anarchist Seattle, Portland, or New York.... https://www.redbubble.com/people/litlnemo/shop?artistUserName=litlnemo  I like the postcard, but am offended that Detroit is not on the list.   Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along!  There’s an Art Nouveau deck I’ve almost bought myself a bunch of times.  I'm waiting for one to ship from the UK that I backed on kickstarter - gorgeous watercolor paintings
Are you interested in receiving a burned CD of music? If so, name of genres, artists, styles that you are into or would like more of to explore. Oh that would be fun.  I play CDs when I’m in my studio.  I’d love one with Celtic music – instrumental or not, If it’s in Gaelic, that’s cool.  It’s more about the sound environment while I’m playing with fiber & art supplies.  Or old jazz - say 1930-1950s.  Also fun background sounds.   Do you have an Amazon wishlist?  If you do and you're ok with getting stuff from it, please share the link! It’s in my sig file   Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay?  Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa?  What are your thoughts?  I love pumpkin spice.  I loved Pumpkin Spice before the PSL was a major thing.  I love pumpkin too.    Candy corn – love it or loathe it?  Or just don’t care much one way or another?  I loathe the original one, but am curious about some other flavors I saw. Maple was one of them.

Long Live the Halflings!

Today is the anniversary of the Long-Expected Party celebrating the eleventy-first birthday of Bilbo Baggins and the coming of age of Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings. It was on this day that Bilbo gave his infamous birthday speech, saying “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve,” before disappearing from the Shire forever.
Also on this day, according to the Appendices of The Lord of the Rings, 99-year-old Samwise Gamgee rode out from Bag End for the final time. He was last seen in Middle-Earth by his daughter Elanor, to whom he presented the Red Book. According to tradition, he then went to the Grey Havens and passed over the Sea, last of the Ringbearers.     And now, in honor of the Baggins Birthdays, the departure of Samwise, and Hobbits in general, here is the song of one of J.R.R. Tolkien’s (and, for that matter, world literature’s) greatest heroes, Samwise Gamgee, when in Cirith Ungol. In this very difficult times, I find myself returning to these verses in particular. They are the epitome of Hobbits and of hope. In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe ‘tis cloudless night
and swaying beeches bear
the Elven-stars as jewels white
amid their branching hair.

Though here at journey’s end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.  - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

To my lovely witch! I am having kind of a time of it this past week (fires/smoke in OR while also dealing with several medical appts/procedure this week). Should slow down next week. If I have not answered questions you are interested in, please check out any of my prior six or seven blog posts from prior rounds. I think a lot of these questions show up every year.   8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? The book butters sound really good as my skin is so dry already! African soap or even the Tiger Bar soap sound intriguing.    Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)? Shockingly, not right now.
8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! I think all the odd KitKat flavors are curious. Cute pens are fun. I don't know anything specific, but enjoy being surprised.    What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. Hmmm...nail butters like LUSH Lemony Flutter or that one from PB Soapworks. My cuticles are very sad right now.
9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something.  All of those soaps look amazing. I prefer natural soaps like this. Any that are moisturizing or exfoliating would be a bonus!
9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks The plague seeker face mask is cute (size M as opposed to S, I'd guess).   one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?  Oh! Fabrics #36 and 41 are so cute! Sure!    9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty Soy candles, like Black Philip, seem good (but heavy to ship?).
9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? YUM!!! ALLL of the cocktail syrups sound amazing. A friend once served a lavender infused drink, and I LOVED it. I think the lavender blends would be amazing, too!   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  Hmmm. I just got a new car (new to me, not brand new) and I always choose one static window sticker. Haven't chosen yet. If my witch thought she could pick one for me based on all my answers everywhere, that'd be cool! Also, I like to hang one decorative bit from the rearview mirror, and am not sure about that yet. Something witchy or natural would be nice.   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  Right now I don't have the space to dive into my hobby (plants/decorating plants with stones, etc.), but I'd love anything my witch makes!   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  I love so much from them. We used to use a sandwich sprinkle we loved, but gave away when we were fully vegan for quite a long time. We're back to eating dairy and I do miss that.   9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this? https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)   Very talented folks! I don't think it's for me.   If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? Do not knit, but I think it's awesome when people do!
  what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? The static cling window sticker mentioned above - maybe from Buffyverse?   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? I've never been. Can you believe it? Maybe some glass jars or a basket? Natural decor.   9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? Maybe a very small item that could be displayed in my home? I don't use patches or pins, but I do think tiny, snarky cross-stitching is fun.   9/11/20   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  Escape from the tyranny of our government in the US? But seriously, you guys have so much amazing stuff. I don't know where to start.    Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? BUFFY! And Angel, or Charmed. Twin Peaks.   How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?   I love tea! I have learned that I prefer herbal/no caffeine. Anything that might help me sleep would be a huge plus! Tools and cups are good, too, so long as they're fairly minimal, like my aesthetic.    How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   Do love, though I try not to use paraffin wax (prefer soy or other). But, yes, please!   Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?   Husband and a 5yo, loud but belove Sphynx cat, Phoebe Buffay.
9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality! Hmmm... I like the Make Magic print.    What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? I don't think so.   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? The soaps look beautiful. I'm trying to make the switch from gel to avoid waste for both hand soap and bathing.   I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!  Yep! Sounds exciting.   After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ 2) https://www.mineralgypsy.com          I love the raw quartz and lemurian stones. 3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop 4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/                  Shop is closed now. 5) https://www.faunwood.com 6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/ 7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com 8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size. Slippers out of these things sound most like they'd get use. I have a pair of mary jane style slippers (just knit with a piece that buttons over the top of my foot to keep them on. I get that you are not sure about slippers yet, though. Sounds fun!   I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? Cute, but I'm not sure.   9/13/20   Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  I don't know, sadly. I am not well-versed. I like minimal, black and white (maybe with neutrals).   Who is your fashion icon(s)?  Hmmm...I really enjoy Dan Levy from Schitt's Creek.   What is your favorite mythological creature?  I loved unicorns since I was a babe. A couple years ago, they took on a negative association. I'm working on flushing that out, because I want to love them again.
is there anything you want from Lush? Yep! Dream Cream, Blue Skies, French Kiss, and Sleepy are old faves. I enjoy so much of their stuff, but not the florals or overly foody scents.   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? Wow. I know nothing, but am curious.   How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)? I feel great about it! I bet that chocolate peanut butter fudge would like to be in mah belly.   How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? Great! I have done a full keto diet and am now doing low carb (with the allowance for "regular" treats), but am definitely open to keto-esque ones!   9/14/20   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk Their things look lovely. I'm clueless. If you can deduce from my other preferences, I'm sure the products are fab!
Do you have an Etsy wishlist? Think I'm under EML298 - https://www.etsy.com/people/eml298?ref=hdr_user_menu-profile.   I wanted to share this link to a soapmaker I love and ask if y'all see anything you would like from them! https://www.herbneden.com/ Yes! I'm trying to find soaps that are moisturizing (if possible). I try to use vegan body care, but I am open to bees wax and probably milks harvested ethically.   Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters? https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/collections/critters-2020?page=1 or other ones? I stick to BPAL out of sheer desire to avoid another rabbit hole. I bet these are gorgeous, though, as is their maker!   9/15/20   I have a friend who does pet caricatures. He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)? If he does mostly black and white art (maybe with one or two accent colors, then yes! My girl is black and white, so it fits!   Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end? I do, but I actually use clear glass, twinkle lights and pumpkins so one set of "holiday" decor can work from Halloween through new year's. I add black bits and skulls, but that's all season for me.
  Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1)  Ack! See answer to Nui Cobalt, above.   I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas?  Sure! Herbal, sleep blends, etc.   What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) Oh, my! Yes - I can't even pick one! They all sound divine, maybe except the sour cream one.   9/16/20   Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom? https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom  (this is our @spookygrrrly - switch witch code coming soon to a spreadsheet near you.)   How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com ?  (This shop belongs to @twilighteyes - we can maybe crochet some of the unicorns that are sold out...)   Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrianSerwayArt?
Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist?   If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like?   How do you feel about local items from my city, like spicy (think chili) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol.   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop?    Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections (restocks Friday 9/18 at 9:00 PST) https://miruscandles.com/collections https://briarwickcandles.com/collections   9/17/20   Is there something from your fandom that popped up in another country you'd be particularly interested in?  What, and what store?   Would you be interested in some boozy chocolates (or anything else) from https://www.chocolatemoonshine.com/ ?   9/18/20   Witchee, assuming you like home made/home canned condiment goodies, what is your spice level preference?  
  Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?    9/19/20   Lilith are up! Is there anything from the release that you want? Decant or full bottles?   How would you feel about recipes?     Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house.    9/20/20   How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it.    9/21/20   I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca?

Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! I Love Japanese chips cheese puffs snacks and I love the kit Kats to try different flavors except for anything with liquorice or rose.   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. Reading and playing video games, It's my husband passed away almost 4 years ago I have been slow to read but I'm slowly getting back into it I also embroider so I can always use more string someone from last year gave me a wonderful pattern that I need to iron on top pillowcase so that I can start really embroidering. I also adore painting boxes a sketch and draw every now and then but for the most part part it's just embroidery and painting boxes. 9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something.  . I would love to try French vanilla lavender any kind of soft fruity lip balm I always use lip balm so I'm down for it especially trying new blends because my lipstick constantly dry summer or winter or fall or spring.   9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks )due to extremely sensitive skin that has to be monitored by a dermatologist I can't do face masks I can do lipstick I don't really wear foundation because sometimes it can make my skin itch that and I sweat it all out I am trying to figure out to find a hypoallergenic eyeliner cuz I would actually like to highlight my eyes I have long lashes naturally and I need to find a palette that doesn't make my eyes itch so far not good but I'm willing to try.   one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?  I don't like masks I don't like clown paint they remind me of serial killer so I really don't like masks.   9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty I'm good I don't need anything from here.   9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? Okay so I love Bourbon Cherries I love cherries but I am addicted to bourbon flavored cherries like soaked in bourbon I would love to try cherries soaking rum I don't eat too much syrup so it's kind of a done deal for me I don't eat too much bread so don't use jelly and pickles I'm very particular about so I don't eat them too often because the brine normally gives me a migraine but bourbon soaked fruit cherries strawberries I can put in my old fashioneds I'm down.   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  I am not going to lie I am looking forward to the Halloweens they're my favorite time of year the weenies I'm not a big fan of the lips because I am sugar and foodie scents and they make me nauseous I would rather have it in front of me to eat than to smell like it all day so a Halloween cent based on any of the notes I would love I can't wait until they drop.   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  I would love a container to put all my embroidery and my thread in I would also like more thread because I like different colors so I am very flexible.   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  I can never not have enough Spanish paprika I love their garlic granulated I do like the French vanilla but that is very pricey so I'm good on that and I only use it when I bake cookies other than that I'm pretty good.     9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this? Not really If you want to list of artists that I do like I'll be glad to provide it.     If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? as I don't knit crochet or weave this question is not applicable unfortunately.   what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? I I don't know honestly I have a lot of what I need maybe more cat toys for my kitties that they will actually play with because I have spoiled them rotten or socks I love socks warm comfortable socks fun socks I'm an attorney and so I have lots of crazy socks that I wear to court cuz I need to remember and remind myself that I'm doing my best and not to take life too terribly seriously I have socks that have squirrels on them I have socks for Halloween that say don't make me push my witch button so I love socks but I also love warm fuzzy socks I can wear for the winter.   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? I would get office supplies like envelopes the long large metal ones I would get the padded envelopes for when I swap with people I would also buy wipes because you know covet is a thing and some picture frames because my goal over the winter is to redecorate my house and to put all of the pictures that are currently have in frames and hang them on my wall.     9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? I'm not losing my sight I am older and I have glasses to help me with embroidery rather than that I'm good unless you can find a pattern that's easy that I don't have to iron on a pillow case because I don't have an iron at the moment for embroidery.   9/11/20   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  !  Meant humbugs chocolates I love English chocolate and tea fruity tea not straight English black tea that will send me into space and have me running rings around Saturn because of the caffeine.   Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from?Not really there are several shows that I love but I don't belong to a fandom per se.     How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  so this is an excellent question I love white tea and I love green tea I would trying to find a turmeric tea with fruit in it most of my teas that I have have a fruit base strawberry peach not banana cuz I can't stand the flavoring blueberry green rubous tea is a favorite of mine I love black tea if it has some fruit in it I love white tea and I normally purchase everything from Adagio because I just prefer their loose leaf teas now the problem is is that I was a big fan of teavana and I bought the teavana tea steeper and I'm down to my last one so I need a new one of those I'm not asking you to buy one I'm just saying that's what I need and I can't do any kind of two licorice in it I can only do green and white fruit flavored peppermint a little bit I do love peppermint tea and the reason why this question and this answer is so long is because I was drinking tea from 2015 and I didn't realize that until the other day so I had to throw a whole bunch of old tea away so now I am stuck without tea and I'm looking for a turmeric fruity tea to help with memory and blood pressure No I'm not having memory problems but I do have Alzheimer's in my family I do like turmeric and tea I don't like it on my food but I like it in tea so I'm doing all that I can to take care of myself.     What about tea tools or cup Please see the previous answer but I really do need a bigger tea steeper because my teavana one is on its last legs and I don't like the little ones that sit in your cup because normally the holes are too big and I've got loose leaf tea floating in the water with the tea so there you go.   As   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   I Love room spray I cannot spray my pillows directly because I'm sensitive to the sense and I have a s*** ton of trading post room spray and I will always have trading post room spray I do burn candles but they're normally fall candles and I've already gotten what I want for the year for Yankee candle If the trading post ever comes out with more candles ILove the trading post candles love love love love love.   Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?   My cats have a lot of toys that they don't play with I am in search of toys that they will play with catnip is always welcome treats because I have an overlord that is very sensitive with a stomach I only buy one type of treat for her and the younger one is chanca and she's going to have to lose weight and we have to figure out how to do that cuz she don't eat dry food and she loves treats but again she also has a sensitive stomach so I only give them one type of treat.
  9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality! Nooe   What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? Nope.   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? ? Nope. I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!  Would love to see what you've got.  My walls are getting full of art already and I have a ton more to hang up that I need frames for (matted for 8x10 artwork from Brian Serway.)  I only have a small room in someone else's house and being disabled, I don't know that I'll ever have my own place again.     After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ -- Creature of the Night silver pin.  Curious Wanderer Silver pin. 2) https://www.mineralgypsy.com -- I love crystals.  Anything you'd think I'd like.   3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop -- Super cute but bright.  I could actually use a new ipad case but I need the kind that doubles as a stand (I have an older iPad air.)  I'd say a water bottle but none of her water bottle designs call to me. 4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/ - would totally take sheets of stickers to decorate packages with. 5) https://www.faunwood.com - nothing really. 6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/ - I really don't need any prints right now and the stickers are pretty expensive. 7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com - are these zines?  I love the style (very Tolkien) but don't really like zines. 8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com - I really don't need any prints right now   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size. TBH, I am too hot 99.99999% of the time and I'm a knitter, mom is a knitter/crocheter, and I absolutely do not need anything to wear that would be warm (except maybe some nordic style pajama socks.)  I don't need either a teapot or french press cozy.  I am super picky about my cowls.   But if you're a knitter or crocheter and want to make me something, I have a bundle on Ravelry called "make for me!"  filled with thing to knit (all kinds of colorwork and stuff) or crochet (mostly amigurumi but also some top hats)    Warning -- all of the fox stuff is for my mom.  So if I receive any of that, she will get it.     I do wear socks, fingerless miits and double length cowls or long cresecent shawlettes.  I don't wear knitted hats or choke-y cowls or smoke rings or mittens or triangle shaped shawls.      Feets are huge, size 11w.  Hands are also huge.  If you knit socks for me I REALLY REALLY need a stretchy cast on (if cuff down socks) or bind off (if toe up socks.)  And both the stretchy cast on AND bind off for mitts.  (I use Jeny's for both, myself, although a cable cast on is usually stretchy enough too.)    I think the stretchy thing is one of those tics of being autistic.   (shrug)   I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? I'm not really into vintage-y type stuff and I really don't like things in round tins (especially lip stuff.)  The Rose scented ink is the coolest but I don't write at all!  I can still type and knit, but my hands don't like writing for more than a few words on a note.  The Egyptian Geranium EO or the Organic Clove Bud EO both caught my eye but I don't really have a pressing need for EO's right now.  Maybe a large loofa sponge?  Oh!  4 Thieves Vinegar!  Ok, the 1896 Cleopatra's Enamel looks interesting too.       9/13/20   Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  I think I talked about it in my original answers.  But since I don't really need any artwork right now...    Who is your fashion icon(s)?  I don't know that I have any particular fashion icons.   I'm mostly attracted to gothy/fetishy/industrial mixes of clothing and makeup but I am too lazy to dress that way myself most of the time.   What is your favorite mythological creature?  Anything equine really (I used to collection tons of unicorn/pegasus figures but they're all packed up.  I love hippocampus too!) as well as grotesques and gargoyles.  And Krampus.  And Black Philip.   is there anything you want from Lush? always.  like every single bat bath bomb!!  ALL OF THEM!  I have other stuff from LUSH on my Amazon Bath, Body, Fragrance wish list.   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? This would be fun if Holly was my Witch.  But I don't know my birth time and my mom can't find my baby book.   How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)? No nuts, Penuche!!!!!  And the apple pie fudge!!!!!!!   *sad grabby hands towards all the fudge*   How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? I'm ok with real sugar, butter, cream.  I try to avoid corn syrup.  I'm also ok with coconut sugar and alternatives, but I prefer using castor sugar or brown sugar in things.  My mom makes a lot of alternative, gluten free, oil free, low sugar stuff so I already have access but that doesn't mean I wouldn't want any from my Witch if that is their specialty - I just don't require it?     9/14/20   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk I am interested in the Bath Salts, Shampoo Bar, Sugar Scrubs, and Whipped Soap (especially if you want to send something for my son - he LOVES their whipped soap and uses it for shaving - Ghost Smoke is his fave.)    Scents that sound good are: Festival Four & Twenty Blackbirds OM Rook & Raven Sylph White Witch Lughnasadh The Gloaming GHOST SMOKE       Do you have an Etsy wishlist? Yes, I believe it is linked both on the Switch Witch Spreadsheet and on my Switch Witch Help (both are in signature.)  And I put it here for ease as well.  ❤️  ETSY FAVES.  That being said, once an item is sold out I am unable to remove it from the sorted lists which drives my virgo heart absolutely crazy.  So make sure to check the "show only available items" when looking through lists.  It's a major bug and the only way around it is to make a new list, add all of the items you want to it, and delete the old list.     I wanted to share this link to a soapmaker I love and ask if y'all see anything you would like from them! https://www.herbneden.com/ No bar soap, but I would up for trying the bath salts, scrubs, facial stuff, etc.  I put a bunch on my amazon bath, body, fragrance list for fun.  Some of them are kind of spendy but the bath salts and masks aren't too bad.   Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters? https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/collections/critters-2020?page=1 or other ones? Nah, I'm good.  I have so much perfume and no more veins.     9/15/20   I have a friend who does pet caricatures. He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)? Not caricatures, no.     Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end? My room is always filled with bats and skulls and skeletal things and gargoyles.  I would love Nightmare Before Christmas ornaments and especially the new Pumpkin King tree topper (Hallmark.)
  Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1)  The Fancy Witch body powder sounds nice.  Black Rose or Marshmallow butterbombs.  Do they not do whipped soap anymore?  I'm trying to avoid sugar scrubs right now because I'm battling skin infections and I don't think sugar helps.  Prefer oily/salt scrubs.   I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas?  mmm tea Samples are great.  Loose leaf.   If you wanted to create a blend for me with your own artwork, that would be fun!   (I don't like mate, pu-erh, or rooibos/honeybush)  Lapsang, Cream, Butterscotch, Clove?   This is Hallowen (by Bran Mydwnter) https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=96188

Throat Therapy   What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) Sea Salt Caramels Chocolate Covered Almonds Dandelion Chocolate Chip Cookie Anything from the Pantry & Baking - nibs, chips, chef's chocolate.  (Tiffin is one of my favorite things and I like to make it out of "good" chocolate instead of plain chocolate chips.)   9/16/20   Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom? https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom  (this is our @spookygrrrly - switch witch code coming soon to a spreadsheet near you.) I'd really super love a planchette / skull pendant from her but I love her cute pins too.   Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrianSerwayArt? I have sooooo many of his prints.  I really need some matted (white mat, black frame) for 8x10 for all of his artwork that I haven't hung up yet.  The only one I super want in stock right now is I Am No Man.
Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? The sockdream's wishlists are shareable!!  I don't actually like wearing socks but I *DO* need some new ones.  I'd love a bunch of black cotton footie socks!  Also black cotton crew would be good.  I have size 11w feet, so they can't be "one size fits most."  I think I put a bunch of sockdreams stuff under my SW Help (in signature.)   If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like? I'm near one!  I can't think of anything I super want that I can't get myself.   How do you feel about local items from my city, like spicy (think chili) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol. I love dark roast coffee but right now it needs to be k-cups.  I love green chiles!  I have a bunch of chile stuff on my amazon cooking and kitchen and snack wishlists.   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop?  I don't collect them just to collect them but I have gotten a few that I love.  I have the Goblin King, Death, Demogorgon, Jack Skellington.  Would love The Man in Black (Princess Bride) and/or Inigo Montoya -- I'm still kicking myself for not buying some when I was at the flagship store in Everett last time.  Would love Black Philip.  I can't remember if I have a Krampus already or not.   Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections (restocks Friday 9/18 at 9:00 PST) https://miruscandles.com/collections https://briarwickcandles.com/collections   without knowing if they would irritate my lungs or not, I'm going to have to say no.  I love candles; I am a chandler ffs.  But my stupid lungs and chronic respiratory disease!  Argh!!!     9/17/20   Is there something from your fandom that popped up in another country you'd be particularly interested in?  What, and what store? I'm not sure!  I don't have any disposable income so I don't really go looking.   Would you be interested in some boozy chocolates (or anything else) from https://www.chocolatemoonshine.com/ ? I'm always interested in boozy chocolates but this site does say that all of their chocolates are non-alcoholic.   The Creme Brulee and Black Cherry Bourbon fudge look interesting - how much do you get for $20, I wonder?  (You can get a pound of Penuche fudge from Holly with free shipping to the US for $20... just saying...  and it's SO.  FRICKING.  GOOD.  and the apple pie!!!  She could probably try her hand at any custom flavor.)   9/18/20   Witchee, assuming you like home made/home canned condiment goodies, what is your spice level preference?   I'm a bit of a spice wimp - maybe as high as cayenne (30-50k) but assume I'm eating it with sour cream or cream cheese or something to cut the heat a bit.   Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?  The name makes me laugh because so totally Donnie Darko.  Sadly all of their bath salt is sold out and the scents are pretty generic anyway.  Much more interested in Luv Milk milk baths.

2020 Switch Witch Q&A

****NEW QUESTIONS/ANSWERS ADDED 10/5: **** All Questions as of 10/5 should be answered. If it isn't listed below the answer was "No thank you, No, or doesn't apply" and this makes it easier to read   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop? I do get some Funko Pops but not a ton. If you want to get me a Funko then any of the Hellraiser or The Shining ones would be awesome and I don't have any Funkos from those movies so pick whatever you like.      Witchee, assuming you like home made/home canned condiment goodies, what is your spice level preference?  I like it hot but my family are wimps so I usually go medium - hot so I'm not just making food for me lol . Though no ghost pepper type hot...I just don't care for them. 
  Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house. I have zero idea what this is but you had me at magical giant beaver gas station. If they have cool merch than a travel mug would be awesome. I also like beef jerky, fudge, nuts, and beavers     9/20/20   How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it. Bullet storage cases are my fav. Need more though.   9/21/20   I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca? That would be lovely. No fringe, feel free to choose colors, no allergies, and no preference on thickness since I use both kinds. No scarfs please.     Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preferance? No preferance     Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along! I've been interested in oracle decks since I've never really used them. I'm also all for tarot decks of any sort 
Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay?  Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa?  What are your thoughts? My thoughts are Yes Pumpkin Everything!   Candy corn – love it or loathe it?  Or just don’t care much one way or another? Love it. Love it as a motif, a candy, and decoration. For eating though I really like the Fall Mix and the bag that has just the pumpkins that come in the fall mix.    9/23/20     I have been remiss--witchee (or anyone needing a minion), I am notorious for homemade caramels, shortbreads both savory and sweet, and catnip/catnip laced toys.  I've also started playing with homemade marshmallows and fruit candies.  Any interest? Caramels would be lovely       WITCHEE, WOULD YOU LIKE ANY OF THESE?  Don't just say "yes" -- please be specific about which ones you want the most!   Brown Sugar Plum Butter - this Pflaumenmus (also Plum Butter) Cardamom Plum Jam - this Star Anise Plum Jam - this Ginger Peach Butter  Vanilla Peach Jam Sweet Green Tomato Relish Dill Green Tomato Relish Huckleberry Jam - this Apple Butter Candied Jalapenos (delicious with cream cheese on burgers or crackers) Lavender Vanilla Bean liqueur Rose Petal liqueur   10/4/20   the other day I found the pattern I made for a small crocheted skull. I have made some before and included some herbs and oils and such, things that both smell good and are said to carry protective virtues, in the stuffing, and hooked them up to hang in a vehicle or such. Would any of y'all like one of those? I'll take all the protection I can get!  


****END NEW Q/A FROM 10/5****
Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)?  No thank you   Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)?   Shuttered Asylum Atmosphere Spray Snow Angel Atmosphere Spray Veronica Franco Imp Case   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries Most of mine involve naps and spending time in my yard/generally being outside as pandemic self-care. My normal self-care are just about all impossible right now due to pandemic and I'm in the process of figuring out what I need to get through the next six months and pandemic winter since my husband and I already deal with seasonal depression. The main things I've been working on is: 1.removing clutter (clutter is a huge depression/anxiety trigger for both of us) 2.finding healthy but easy fall/winter comfort foods because I'm still working on taking off the weight from the first six months of comfort eating. Basically focusing on soups, roasted veg, and things I can prep and freeze for days I just can't deal and would normally order pizza/eat junk 3. finding ways to add more movement/exercise to my life in general. I have health/mobility issues that are making that difficult and most of our parks (normally I like to walk) aren't open due to COVID. 

So things that would help those goals are: 1. storage containers for my imps. Especially the ones they make to store bullets. Those are great because the imps are easy to organize/find and stack neatly.  2. Eco-friendly/reusable storage items like bees wrap or the silicon storage backs that are meant to replace sandwich bags. I'd really like some of those. I'm trying to create less waste but sandwich and snack sized plastic baggies are sooooo helpful.  3.

Cootie Q's (2020 SW)

8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? I love Paintbox!  The Nihilist Cream and Buttercup scrub are two of my favorites, and I like the soaps and body scrubs as well. Favorite scents include Blackbird, GTFO, The Englishman, Yuletide Mariner (winter LE), Gooseberry Beach, Sleepy Lagoon, Gardensong (summer scents) I lean toward the fresher or woodsier scents generally. I am curious about Demeter Forsaken and Hex on the Beach from the weenies.   Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)? Nothing currently but I'll update this if anything new goes up.
8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me!  Chestnut kit kats sound interesting.  I love pretty stationery, fruity candies, black sesame, the glazed rice cracker mixes, stuff like that.   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. Most of my self-care stuff is more limited by time than anything.  Like I love painting my nails but can't stay put long enough to let them dry properly, I have henna'd my hair I think once this year and I love my colored hair.  I should take the time to take better care of my feet, they're usually cracked, and my arms are rough/bumpy but it's like they work just fine and don't hurt or anything so I don't take the time/expense to find something to fix it.
9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something.  The wool wash sounds interesting, and I use liquid handsoap in the kitchen all the time. The Cherry, or Oatmeal scents might be nice
9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks good on masks since my mom sews them one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?  good on masks here   9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty Oh good grief, I totally don't *need* anything, but I am still going to go nuts looking at the shadow pigments and come back to this... Blood Moon, Lucia or Redrum, Grape Soda, mashed banana, vintage peach   Enchantress lipcolor
9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? Brandied cherries, jams, pickles, all wonderful.  I'm a huge fan of lavender in like everything but food though.   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??    Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  I love artsy things made for me, I love seeing people's talent.  But I also do a lot of fiddling with crafts, so anything would be loved, really.  (I should probalby say minimal yarn though, like if you handspin or dye I would be all over that, but I have totes of yarn waiting to be used.   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  bwahahahahahaha....half my spice cabinet is Penzeys at this point.   9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this? https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)     If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? Colors probably no neons, otherwise I'm open, and as long as it's pleasant to the touch I'm not partial on fiber.  I do prefer plied yarn to singles and don't work a whole lot with the super bulky side, but anything bulky to lace is wonderful.   what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? Don't laugh, but just a stupid cheap jar of bubble stuff., just the plain old stuff we had growing up, no fancy wands, no scents, just the old plastic round wand and bubble liquid.   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? Candy, small hair scrunchies, probably cheap kitchen tools for yarn dyeing, mailing supplies, maybe garden stuff   9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? notions would be lost on me, the cross stitch would be cool   9/11/20   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?    Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from?   How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?   I'd have to look at their stuff.  My favorite tea shop is Happy Lucky's Tea Shop (happyluckys.com) which is local to me, and my favorites are the Russian Caravan, Black Currant, and their oolongs.  I'm really up for trying anything except rooibos or anything with licorice root since I don't care for that weird sweet aftertaste.   I'm pretty full up on mugs and accessories.   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   Don't use much since my housemates are very smell-sensitive.   Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?  Live with 2 peoples, and we tend to share the snack goodies, and a crazy macaw who likes tearing up bottle corks as a treat.
9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? Cute but not really my style   What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? nothing here thanks   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? trying to pare down my nail polish since I don't use it very often   I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!  That would be cool, I love other people's art   After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy!    all cool and talented, but nothing I can think to want besides maybe from thelatestkate 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ 2) https://www.mineralgypsy.com 3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop  I adore her stuff!  Could do a notebook or sticker/magnet The otter 'you can be a mess today', The platypus 'my own kind of beautiful', the bat 'I don't care if my best sucks', sloth 'hold on to your weird'  baby crow 'you will handle this' owl 'fucking delight',  pegasus 'mostly fabulous', puppy 'it's ok to be a work in progress' puppy 'no one knows what they're doing',  fox 'you're still nice to have around'   4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/ 5) https://www.faunwood.com 6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/ 7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com 8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size.  arm warmers or mittens, I do have like a men's m/l hand/arm size   I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? the liquid lip stain type stuff, I already use cake mascara but still have plenty left.   9/13/20   Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  not really any favorites, I like impressionist art, modern fantasy artists like Aria Fawn, to give you an idea art around here involves Van Gogh prints, Jerry Uelsmann, AB Word, a print that looks like a petroglyph of running deer...it's a bit all over the place.    Who is your fashion icon(s)?   not applicable   What is your favorite mythological creature?  can't pick
is there anything you want from Lush?  not in particular   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? I feel like right now I'm too scattered to make use of it   How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)?  Holly makes awesome fudge (presuming she's not my witch since we've swapped a ton over the years).   How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? not dietarily necessary for any of us, but definitely would not be shunned.  I am trying to get us to cut back on sugar around here   9/14/20   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk they sound nice but nothing specific
Do you have an Etsy wishlist?

He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)? Bandit is her own caricature   Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end? I decorate for the seasons more than holidays, like I have a little bit of christmas and halloween stuff, but it's more generic winter or fall kind of things that I can just leave up. 
  Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1)  The old cider haus sounds good, but a lot of the other stuff is a bit foody for me.   I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas?  I've ordered from them before and enjoy their teas, so I'm happy to get from them within my preferences (no rooibos, no licorice root)   What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) I love chocolate but I'd be afraid the nuances of fancy chocolate would be lost on me.   9/16/20   Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom? https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom  (this is our @spookygrrrly - switch witch code coming soon to a spreadsheet near you.) the skull in the jar pin is adorable   How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com ?  (This shop belongs to @twilighteyes - we can maybe crochet some of the unicorns that are sold out...)

He reminds me of another of my favorite artists, Aria Fawn.  I love the Petalbearer, Slimeglow, Honeyminer, Loner, Trance Crescent, and I have a soft spot for the Mail Kupo and Black Mage, because gaming nerd.
Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? I am quite honestly a barefoot all the time person.  I like nice soft boot socks in the winter with my big clunky shoes and snowboots so my feet don't freeze, but I am not a socks for the sake of socks person. Also I have huge calves so cute socks are generally a no-go   If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like? I live near one 😃   How do you feel about local items from my city, like spicy (think chili) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol. I love local stuff!  It's fun to learn about my witch through stuff from their place in the world   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop?  I think they're adorable but don't have a ton of room to display stuff   Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections (restocks Friday 9/18 at 9:00 PST) https://miruscandles.com/collections https://briarwickcandles.com/collections   9/17/20   Is there something from your fandom that popped up in another country you'd be particularly interested in?  What, and what store?

If you mean heat-spicy, medium or lower is great. The milder it is, the more I can share it with the rest of the house.  I like hot food, but since my household is really sensitive, I've learned to do flavorful without heat for the most part, alas.   Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?  Soaps like Cannon Beach Daisy or Ginger Fizz   9/19/20   Lilith are up! Is there anything from the release that you want? Decant or full bottles? The Liliths are my favorite update, so I already jumped on a few decants and a blind bottle of Boop because I get the Lilith and puppydog every year.   How would you feel about recipes?   Love them!  Send me your favorite recipes, chat about cooking with me, I love cooking/baking/candy witchery, you name it.   Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house.  This is hilarious.  I collect pins to stick on my knapsack, so something like that would be fun, snacky stuff.   9/20/20   How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it.  still working on this myself.  My sale box is categorized in a bead box with each compartment for a different thing, like GCs A-C or whatever.  My personal stuff is less organized, but all my bottles are in a wood box with labels on the tops.   9/21/20   I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca?  I have no allergies, and I love using and wearing other people's handywork.    Witchee, darling, there's a *slight* chance I might be going on a trip next week and *might*, in the course of this trip, have access to Disneyworld goodies from Epcot and Magic Kingdom - any stuff you might desire?  the aforementioned pin, either a generic park one (Epcot was always my favorite) or if characters,  anything Winnie-the-Pooh family, or Wall-E, Stitch, etc.   9/22/20   Would you like any of Snag Tights’ Halloween offerings and if so, what size? since I'm not doing anything for halloween, probably not.    Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preferance? No preference.  You're doing something thoughtful for me, so that is awesome no matter what form you choose.   Witchee, do you like tea? If so, what kind? Love tea, black, green, oolong, herbal, loose or bagged.    I don't care for rooibos or anything with licorice root but otherwise pretty much anything is fair game.   Witchee, do you want anything?  Shirts, mugs, postcards from Anarchist Seattle, Portland, or New York.... https://www.redbubble.com/people/litlnemo/shop?artistUserName=litlnemo While I think it's hilarious, I can't think of anyting I'd have a use for.   Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along! I wouldn't even know as far as styles, but I love the idea of this as it's something I've wanted to learn.
Are you interested in receiving a burned CD of music? If so, name of genres, artists, styles that you are into or would like more of to explore. I just love the idea of a CD of my witch's favorites--introduce me to what you love!  My only caveats would be no explicitly violent lyrics   Do you have an Amazon wishlist?  If you do and you're ok with getting stuff from it, please share the link!  I do but it's a hot mess right now, will update if I go through it, mostly it's just miscellaneous art supplies and books, I'll try and make a list just of little things that would be helpful and then link it.   Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay?  Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa?  What are your thoughts? I love the pumpkin food stuff, pumpkin bread, pie, etc, savory squash dishes...I'm not big on the pumpkin spice latte craze, I'd much rather do hot mulled cider or sweet chai for drinks.  Foodie perfumes tend not to play super well on me, so I avoid that kind of thing in body products and perfumes.     Candy corn – love it or loathe it?  Or just don’t care much one way or another? I like it during the appropriate season, but I think the other holiday themed candy corn is silly.   9/23/20   https://www.poesieperfume.com/loose-leaf-tea  <---- would you be interested in receiving tea and / or scents from Poesie? things that sound interesting: teas:Fancy a Cuppa and Albert+Victoria scents: Charm of Making, Artemis, Cathy,  Pemberley, Oyster, Full Moon, Villa Diodati, Myself Invisible, Innocence   I have been remiss--witchee (or anyone needing a minion), I am notorious for homemade caramels, shortbreads both savory and sweet, and catnip/catnip laced toys.  I've also started playing with homemade marshmallows and fruit candies.  Any interest? This was my question, but if my witch is the kitchen crafty type, I would love whatever homemade goodies.  The catnip obviously is not relevant as I am the crazy catless lady.   9/25/20   I happen to live near this amazing place.  Do you have any interest is anything that I could pick up there?  The have hand made pottery, cookie molds, cookbooks with historical recipes all sorts of good stuff.  https://www.gcv.org/shop/ I love historical cookbooks and pottery   10/1/20   Would you be interested in anything from KBShimmer's new Fall nail polish collection or their Falloween collection? The Creep It Together and Smashed are interesting, but I don't wear nail polish super often anymore.

Switch Witch 2020 questions!

8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? no scrubs, I think I noted in my questionnaire i can't use them.

8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! wouldn't mind trying any kit kats! also like kawaii things, stationary, fountain pens and ink, stuffies. Would love an omamori or daruma doll--I've seen them and tried to make my own, but not the same obv. lol.   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. can't think of any. I try to do a little yoga daily
9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something. the soaps all look nice! i do have to be careful about soaps with herbs, flower petals and leaves and such in them, because they make a mess to clean out of my tub.
9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks Not unless they make them with ties instead of ear loops. The loops don't play nicely with my ears, glasses etc. lol   one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks? they are gorgeous! i can't tell if they tie or use ear loops though.     9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty Since I'm not going out much, I'm not wearing much makeup! the caramel apple lip balm sounds lovely though.
9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? yes please!   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  i really want some crumpet rings. lol   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  yes  to either   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)? omg my cabinet is stuffed with Penzeys. I love them. a gift card would be appreciated though!   9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this? https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)  As I said in the SW chat, I liked what they posted at Dragon Con especially the lovely Iron Man print.   If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? absolutely! no real preferences, i can work with anything.    what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? gosh, i don't know. I've been really good about either talking myself out of things or making my own/substituting what I have, so I honestly can't think of anything.   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? been so long since I was in one I can't recall. lol. If I'm honest, if somebody handed me $20 I'd probably say 'thank you, you just paid my water bill for next month' 😆   (omitting the 9/9 question because i asked it. hehe)   9/11/20   Is there anything you'd like from the UK? Cadbury Roses if they still make them; teas, especially Bewley's (well that's Irish, but you know what I mean); and jelly babies!!   Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? hm. Marvel, specifically Iron Man/Tony Stark, is the only thing that comes to mind right off.   How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?  I love tea. I do however have a pretty good stash of it right now, but would love to try samples of new things   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?  yes   Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?  the cats are well provided for, thanks. lol
9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality! the notebooks and stickers are great!   What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? cute stuff, but most of it looks like mom things, which do not apply to me. lol   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? they are neat, but as of right now it looks like most of their stuff is sold out!   I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!  Pix would be neat to see   After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ The cat butt pin is hilarious, and the dragon pin is cute! 2) https://www.mineralgypsy.com pretty jewelry, though I'm not wearing what I have that much of late since I'm not leaving the house much. 3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop Ooh, their phoenix design is so pretty 4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/ I like the stickers and bookmarks! (note to my witch, i left off the other 4 sites that were on this list because while neat they were not exactly my thing. just fyi)   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size. OMG those would be great! especially arm warmers. I like most all colors, particularly purples, blues, teals, greys   I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? samples would be great!   9/13/20   Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  art deco, maybe?    Who is your fashion icon(s)?   What is your favorite mythological creature? I've always liked dragons, but I'm feeling drawn to phoenixes much more lately.
is there anything you want from Lush? omg, my last SW loaded me up with Lush! I love it but I'm still working my way through my stash.   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? just a general hint about a way forward, particularly in the fields of writing, work in general, maybe whether my dream of running a food truck would ever be feasible, and whether the world is going to survive the current multiple conflagrations literal and not.   How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)?

Do you have an Etsy wishlist? yes, I think this is it; https://www.etsy.com/people/hellcatblue?ref=hdr-fav&amp;tab=items Note to my witch, not everything favorited on here is something I want! some of it is for reference. Like, the utility belts made from upcycled jeans are marked because I am making myself one; and the tiny Iron Man kitty pewter is marked to support the maker because I just bought him from her at Dragon Con. lol   (omitting question about Herb N Eden soaps because I posted it. lol)   Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters? https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/collections/critters-2020?page=1 or other ones? I'd like to try the Tiki Bar, as I have become fond of tiki things recently.   9/15/20   I have a friend who does pet caricatures. He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)? no thank you   Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end? i decorate some, but I think I'm good as far as those go!

(https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1) I like Hex, Olde Cider Haus, and both pumpkin scents, in soaps and butters!   I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas? I love Adagio but I am totally set on teas for now. A gift card would not go amiss though.   What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) mmm, all the bars sound good, but then, i won't turn any chocolate down, expensive or cheap.   9/16/20   Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom? https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom  (this is our @spookygrrrly - switch witch code coming soon to a spreadsheet near you.) eh, they are okay   How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com ?  (This shop belongs to @twilighteyes - we can maybe crochet some of the unicorns that are sold out...) i'm actually good on project bags right now!   Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrianSerwayArt? they are neat but i don't really have a place for them right now
Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? i do like socks! crew generally, cotton, not overly tight; something that works well with high top tennies. I don't have a wishlist.   If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like? TJ's is across town and i rarely go anyway. I think I'm ok thanks.   How do you feel about local items from my city, like spicy (think chili) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol. yes! i love local things from my witch   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop? yes! though fair warning, i have half a dozen or so.

All those truffle bars sound amazing!   9/18/20   Witchee, assuming you like home made/home canned condiment goodies, what is your spice level preference?  medium, probably, I like spice, but I don't like hot for hot's sake, i like flavor.
  Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?  oh they are good!

I posted in the SW thread several I'd like as decants (opens another window to get list): I would love to sniff any of the following: Aoede, Melete, Mneme;  Boop; Cannibal Lady Macbeth; Faster Kittycat;  Life, the Sculptor, Moulds Unceasingly; Shadows and Light, and Velut Luna Statu Variabilis (and maybe Solved Mysteries--the lab's red musk doesn't often work on me but the other notes sound lovely); and from Fatherhood, A Night in the French Quarter and Walking My Daughter to Class.   How would you feel about recipes?  yes please.   Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house.  it looks like the Stuckeys stores my fam used to stop at when we traveled when i was a kid! as such, I suspect anything they have would be wonderful.   9/20/20   How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it.  don't look at me, I'm a confused mess.   9/21/20   I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca? I knit too! but i love other people's knitting. Washcloths'dishcloths would be welcome. I would always love another scarf--thin or thick, doesn't matter. I prefer not-fringed, it gets in my way. Fave colors are blues and purples, jewel tones in general--if you know the season-color thing, I'm more of a summer than anything, and least an autumn. Not allergic to any fibers, though alpaca is the BEST. ❤️   Witchee, darling, there's a *slight* chance I might be going on a trip next week and *might*, in the course of this trip, have access to Disneyworld goodies from Epcot and Magic Kingdom - any stuff you might desire? anything Disney is great! I like pins, particularly any park-specific ones, Pooh, Marvel, Galaxys Edge (I know its not in those 2 parks, just throwing it out there in case you got near something, lol) If Epcot still has anything Figment (the little purple dragon who used to be their mascot) would love that too.

Switch Witch 2020

8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? I love paintbox and am always glad to get her hot process soaps and lotions.    Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)?
8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me!   I love trying new and odd flavors of candy.  Stationary is good.  I'm a sucker for cute things.  I've fallen hopelessly in love with Fruit's Basket all over again watching the reboot of the anime.    What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries.   I don't actually know.  I'm really bad at self care.  Probably gardening stuff.  I'm getting ready to out more bulbs in soon and I always want more.  Tulips, daffodils, hyacinth...... anything that will grow in zone 5 b.  I know they sell drill bits for planting bulbs and that would be amazing to have. 
9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something.    The lip balms all look awesome!

Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?    The silver cranes is gorgeous.     9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty   I don't really wear much makeup
9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested?   All of that sound delicious.   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??    Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?    I love homemade things   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?    I use a ton of their Vietnamese Cinnamon.  Ginger and vanilla are pretty heavily used here too.    9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this? https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)     If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors?   what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy?   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with?   Probably a lot of candy, tbh   9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders?   9/11/20   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?    Yes   Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from?   How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?     I adore tea.  I drink more tea then any one person should drink.  I tend to prefer black teas   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?     No incense of candles please, my allergies mean I very rarely or never use them.  I do use atmos.    Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?     I have so many being in the house that all like to be loved on.  My kids are 10, 7, and 4.  And I have 3 dogs and 3 cats that appreciate treats.
9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality!   The Cuddle fish one is super cute.   What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific?   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you?   I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha).

Switch Witch Fall 2020

Etsy Wishlist (not expecting anything from here, but sharing so you know my aesthetic)   9/19/20   Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house.  I'm not opposed to anything on this list if you think I might like it.   9/18/20   Aaaaaah Lilith are up! Is there anything from the release that you want? Decant or full bottles? So, no one needs to feel compelled to buy me BPAL. I know this is a pricey addiction. Below is just stuff I'm interested in: Decants: #2 Pencil; Etienne De Boray Oak; A little Piece of Eternity; Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards; Shadows and Light; Thunk Bottles: Artist's Entrance; Booboo Eyes; Cannibal Lady Macbeth; Loaf; Peanut; You Are Not Alone   New question: Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.? Yes, these are gorgeous and I've never tried them. The only thing is that hay is a scent that doesn't play well with me, and I'd probably prefer bar soaps over the other kinds items they sell.   9/16/20   Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections (restocks Friday 9/18 at 9:00 PST) Those matchbooks are amazing. The library candle sounds really intriguing.  https://miruscandles.com/collections This is a huge catalog and I'm not sure if I have the endurance to go through it. I wouldn't mind an interesting/unique blend. https://briarwickcandles.com/collections Same answer as above.   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk  I don't think I've had the pleasure of trying this company, but have heard of it. I'd be happy to receive anything from here! It all sounds lovely.     Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom  (this is our @spookygrrrly - switch witch code coming soon to a spreadsheet near you.) Adorable, but I think I'm okay without.   How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com ?  (This shop belongs to @twilighteyes - we can maybe crochet some of the unicorns that are sold out...)  (photos in spoilers.) I'm not in need of items like those.   Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? I like tall, cozy socks, usually knee or thigh high. I've definitely got the thunder variety of thighs, so they would need to accommodate that lol.   Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop? These are awesome! Heresy, Facesucker Deux, The Dread King, Matriarch, and Exhumed are giving me feels. Idk why but I can't unbold these sentences.   9/15/20 I have a friend who does pet caricatures. He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)? No thank you.   1- Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1)   Maybe a scrub, butter bomb, or pumpkin butter. Ghost Puffs sounds good. I try to avoid hay scents, and unfortunately their soap dries my skin out.

2- I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas? I really like their sample packs, and they've got some *very* compelling new varieties up for Autumn! (https://www.adagio.com) 
Kentucky Bourbon and Bonfire sound delicious.
3- What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) I am fan of nougat, but otherwise I'm ok.   9/14/20 Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters?  I don't think I can afford to get into another perfume house haha.   Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end? I do for Christmas, but not so much for Halloween, even though I love Halloween more. I don't have any particulars for this question right now.   9/13/20 Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  I adore Art Deco and Baroque. I'm here for the drama hahaha. I also like folk art in the very witch-y, hag-y vein. Pulp art is great too! Who is your fashion icon(s)?  Siouxsie and Wednesday Addams. In general I also like grunge, kinderwhore, and just looking like a low-level dungeon acolyte.  What is your favorite mythological creature?  Probably the Bannik. I like the liminal kind of things. Fond of gorgons and tsukumogami as well. It's hard to pick a favorite!    is there anything you want from Lush (yes, I know they are always breaking people's hearts these days by discontinuing beloved items, but I for one still rely on their skincare, and haven't found other bubble bars that are anywhere near as good)? Any of the Halloween bath bombs or bubble bars (or bath bombs in general). Rose Jam is always a good pick, and Vanillary is one of the only vanillas I really like (the other is NAVA Crystalline).    1) Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? I don't have a particular area because generally all facets of my life are some kind of wreck lol. Really it's a have-at situation from any angle.   2)  How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop? (See link to my shop in my signature) -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)? The Forest Fruit sounds lovely. 3) How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? Its how I live, so Im pretty damn good at it. I don't usually partake but am open-minded.   9/12/20   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it. So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size.  I think arm warmers would the best for me out of this list. I usually like earthy and dark colors.    After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ Wow, what a great site! Patches: death and wine, memento mori, All Seeing Death's Head. Pins: Medieval Monsters: Man-Eater Pin, Medieval Monsters: Fire Dragon. 2)  https://www.mineralgypsy.com Not my jam right now. 3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop Not my thing. 4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/ Wolf Beastie and Badger Faerie Pins are so stinking cute. 5) https://www.faunwood.com This art is so awesome. I love the prints that are mostly black and white with a little bit of red or aqua in them. Reminds me of Princess Mononoke a bit. ❤️  6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/ Not my style. 7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com Not my jam. 8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com Not so much for me.   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality!  I'm ok.   What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific?  These are lovely, but not quite my style.   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you?   In general I like cold process and hot process soaps.    I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request! You should definitely post some pics!     9/11/20   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  I generally appreciate things that are regional. So if your area has some kind of specialty it's known for, that'd be great to try.    Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from?  I don't usually collect items like that, but most Ghibli stuff is adorable.   How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?  I do really love tea and tea cups! I don't think there's a tea I'm not fond of. I think my favorites are Earl Grey and jasmine, but I like many blends too.   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?  My favorite atmosphere spray ever is Exotic Bazaar. I got a sample from the Post a long time ago and have always wanted a bottle. I also really like bread-scented candles. I think it was Bath & Body Works that had a french bread one that I adored. Incense is also good too!     Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?  I have a young son and two cats. All are pretty spoiled, haha!    9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders?  A patch sounds pretty cool!     9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)   Nice art, but not my style.   If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors?  I do like custom dyed yarn, and typically favor blues, grays, and greens. I don't have a preference on weight or fiber. I am just not a fan of really bright colors.    what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? I am a big fan of Korean skincare. I use sheet masks often and will always use a serum or ampoule. I am a sucker for the cute packaging lol. I also like Japanese tea cups and stationary accessories.      If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with?  I usually go to the dollar store with a particular mission in mind, like shopping for birthday party things or looking for some kind of thing to help with organization. Sometimes I go there looking for cheap glass items, like vases. I’m not there often to be honest, but it is fun to look around.   9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? Those cherries sound fantastic! I also love spicy pickles. The syrups sound fun, but other than sakura I tend to not like floral flavors. I’m a big fan of lemon, though!   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself?? I am just happy to participate in this. It’s so nice to think of someone you don’t know and do something kind for them. I appreciate the thought and energy of curating something for someone else.   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself? I like knitting, so pretty yarn is always nice. I also like miniature dollhouses. Otherwise, having something that someone else made sounds great! I love the craft of other people. Whenever I'm at a fair (and have the funds) I always try to buy local pottery (usually mugs or bowls).   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)? Fox Point is probably my favorite seasoning ever, so I’d never say no to that. I do fortunately live just 10 minutes away from one of their stores, so if I don’t receive that I won’t be heartbroken.   9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty Sure! I don’t wear a lot of eyeshadow (mostly liquid eyeliner), but I always love soap. When I wear lipstick I usually wear reds or browns, but also haven’t been wearing lipstick much at all lately.     9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks I like the cheshire and jack-o-lantern smiles, though I have a lot of face masks right now.   one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks? All of those are beautiful!    9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something. All of those sound nice! I have really dry skin because of the climate where I live. Well, except for my face lol. I definitely got the oily genes there, unfortunately.   8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! I would love items from Japan! I’ve always wanted to get gashapon--they just seem so fun. I love the horror art and all of the super cute stuff too. I wish I lived near a Daiso, haha. I’ve always wanted to try sea grapes! I also love the scent of yuzu. Oh, and anything flavored sakura is awesome. The sweet potato and chestnut flavors for Kit Kats sound delicious. I’ve also always wanted Japanese Starbucks items, like the tumblers and mugs with sakura and Mt. Fuji on them.    What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. For self-care I like sheet masks and body scrubs. I also never seem to buy a pair of comfy slippers, even though I need some.     8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? I love their bath streusel and hot/cold process soaps. I have wanted to try their Bookkeeper’s Butter, but never seem to budget for it.    Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)?  Luna Negra sounds interesting.

Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)?  I love anything in their Mandika scent. I like the sound of Clean Slate and I believe I liked The Queen is Dead as well. GTFO and  Blackbird also sound pretty good!   Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)?   Nothing at the moment   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries My biggest self-care thing is getting massages really. I hesitate to spend too much but, for example, since I couldn't have a summer vacation this year I spent 3x as much as I usually do on a massage as my "vacation". At home I'll do a face mask/bath combo sometimes... things that I've never bought because it just doesn't feel worth it are probably things like things for your feet, lip scrubs, things like that. I'm not sure of anything specific but some of them it's just a question of "is this worth the effort of doing it" which is why I don't do hot oil treatments and such    are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something.  Not familiar with it, but nothing particularly piques my interest.   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?  Gonna answer both of these together  I make my own masks so I don't need any. It's taken forever to get a pattern that fits perfectly to my face lol   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty I don't do make-up but the facial stuff seems like it would be fun to try. The facial bar, spider spell eye moisturizer, vampire tonic, face scrub etc.    what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? Don't think customs would like them, sadly.   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  Probably something bath and body related. Forumites always seem to know the best body stuff that I've never heard of (or don't have access to because Japan XD) so I love getting new things to try. Soaps, scrubs, lotions just anything.   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)   Nothing in particular   If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? I don't do yarn crafts   what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? I'm honestly very easy. I love getting soaps/lotions/scrubs/bath stuff that are in my smell categories (if that makes sense). A lot of stuff is the fruity/foody/floral range so getting things in the spicy/leather/incensey range always makes me ridiculously happy lol   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? It would depend on the store lol At this time of year I would probably find some weird halloween things to buy I'm sure. Some kind of weird little bottle or a fun halloweeny piece for resin crafting. Other times of year it would be food and bath stuff probably lol   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  Hmm that's tough. There's pluses to both... I'm just going to say either one!   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  I don't do much cooking to be honest >.>   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? A pin would be cute!   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  CANDY! I love that... honeycomb stuff. I have no idea why the US and Japan don't believe in it but it's so much fun. I don't know if there's a real name for it lol I know it's called Hokey Pokey in NZ but I can't remember the UK name lol. Also ANYTHING blackcurrant flavor. I'd never even heard of blackcurrant before and once I tried some I was HOOKED. I think I drank Ribena every day for weeks   Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? My current fandom loves are Wen Ning from Mo Dao Zu Shi, Otabek from Yuri on Ice, and Beelzelbub and Lucifer from Obey Me!    How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?   I love iced tea. I've been using a cassis blueberry black tea recently which is nice but I am always up to try more. I don't like herbal or green teas much. Flowers can be iffy as well. Anything that would make a good sweet tea I'm up to try though! Vanilla, maple, chai, cassis, bergamot are all good tea things so surprise me I guess   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   Sure! Candles I'm a bit iffy on tbh but things that aren't likely to catch fire like atmosphere sprays or most incense are good!   Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?   No   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality! What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? Nothing catches my eye   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? Everything seems to be sold out but I'm always up for bath stuff. Soap wise the smells of Copal, Nocturnal, Dreamy and Let's Summon Demons (which is a great name too) sound nice.   I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!  Would be terrified of that with international shipping... absolutely terrified.   After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! A lot of lovely things, but nothing really for me, sorry!   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size. Nothing I can think of   I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? Nothing in particular   Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  Not really, sorry   Who is your fashion icon(s)?  I don't have a particular person... my favorite brand is Qutie Frash which is a wa-goth-punk looking line which is just really cute   What is your favorite mythological creature?  Dragons and Griffons
is there anything you want from Lush? Almost anything tbh I always spend too much money at Lush *sigh* I just got a bunch of the halloween stuff but there's never too much~   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? Hmm I guess maybe? I've been applying for jobs all summer but we are mostly in the wait and pray to get a call back stage so not much I can do... I'm also going to be starting my Master's Thesis soon but that's just putting time in and not panicking... I hope >.>   How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)? Mmm fudge. I honestly don't know what kind I'd want... I know I had a cookie dough once that was really good. Or maybe a salted caramel or something with like cookie bits in it?    How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? I don't think I've ever tried any to be honest   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk Scent wise maybe Bell, Book and Candle, OM, Rook and Raven or Lughnasadh? Item wise almost anything, I'm easy
Do you have an Etsy wishlist? I did... I will see if I can find it again >.>   Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters? https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/collections/critters-2020?page=1 or other ones? Aw, a lot of the critters ones sound nice. (In no particular order) Spring Peeper, Red-Tailed Hawk, Grey Wolf and Black-Crowned Night Heron sound nice Other scents maybe Hekate Deichteira, Hekate Potnia Theron, Black Cat, Guiding Star, Black Moon, Cut & Clear, Sleep Elixir, The Conjure Man's Cabin, Energy Shield, Might of Minerva, Higher Mind, Raw Power, Strength, Purify, Valkyrie, Sylph, and Lampade.   Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1)  I personally wouldn't mind Lemon Drops, Candy Corn, Scarecrow, Ghost Puffs or maybe Pumpkin Eater perfume. Ghost Puffs hair oil would also be nice. Didn't see much 

I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas? I really like their sample packs, and they've got some *very* compelling new varieties up for Autumn! (https://www.adagio.com)  Similar answer to the other tea question above

What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) Always up for dark chocolate lol The sea salt caramels look delish, the smores kit is just uggg smoooores want lol   Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom? https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom   How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com ?  Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrianSerwayArt? Don't see anything that piques my interest
Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? I don't have a wishlist, but I like the wet look knee highs, bloody knee socks, Nevermore midcalf, under the stars crew,    If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like? I'm not even sure what they have, to be honest    How do you feel about local items from my city, like spicy (think chili) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol. I can't handle spicy foods and don't drink coffee so maybe not   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop?  I don't like them tbh   Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections https://miruscandles.com/collections https://briarwickcandles.com/collections From Cantrip, The Library. From Mirus, Wand Shop and maybe Manon? Briarwick, Jareth and Angel, maybe Abroxos or Court of Night Flowers   Is there something from your fandom that popped up in another country you'd be particularly interested in?  What, and what store? I'm not sure?    Would you be interested in some boozy chocolates (or anything else) from https://www.chocolatemoonshine.com/ ? No thanks

Catsup on SW questions 9/12

****************** 9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I like the magical rosemary notebook-  blank pages    What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Not really     Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you?  I don't do nail polish, but the scent All That Glitters sounds interesting.  Any product you suggest for bath time or lotion.         ********************   9/11/20 Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  Twinings Assam Tea Coffee Crisp bars,   Harrods Earl Grey #42 tea.  I'm sure there are other things like bath stuff. **************** Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? I love STTNG & Dr Who ( 11 is #1 in my book)    ******************* How do you feel about tea?  Tea runs in my veins. Preferences? Rooibos is evil- even in a blend.  I love black teas.  Assam is my favorite.  All sorts of Earl Grey blends (Harney & Sons Victorian London Fog is a fave).  Chai blends are something of an autumn binge for me.   Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/)  I just started a wish list.  I'd not shopped here before.   Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/),  another new to me company, another wish list - bonus, I just ordered a gift for hubby.   Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), Could not get this website to work & let me look at tea or   do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest? I love Harney & sons & have a wishlist there Www.harney.com   What about tea tools or cups?  I've got a few tools on the various lists.  I would love a metal single mug brewer on a long handle- I just broke the one I've had for years.  The eternal hunt for a purple teapot is a thing.     ********************* How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   I love candles a lot.  Atmo sprays I can scent linens with are lovely.  Incense I use a lot less- too heavy.  ******************* Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?  Husband Bill and a pride of Overlords  (5 ranging from 2-18). I share treats & teas w/ Bill.  The kitties love little mousies to chase & store in my shoes.  In the opinion of the feline  overlords, though, the very best, most exotic gift/ offering is a feather.  Preferably from some bird that is not from here ( We are near Detroit MI).  Could be an Ohio pigeon & it would be exotic. If you have, or know a parrot that can spare a shed feather, or you find one on a walk somewhere, this could provide hours of entertainment.    ********************** 9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? Oh, that would be lovely.  A pin or patch please.  Perhaps a leaf? Or something Witchy?    ************************* 9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)   Not so much to my taste   ************************   If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? Yes!  Always room in my studio for hand dyed yarn.  I do a lot of work with fingering weight/ sock yarn.  Colors- black & grey are my neutrals.  Purple, green, teal, blue are all in my general palette.  Deep garnet red is the only red I really wear . As to fiber, anything natural or a blend w/nylon (aka, sock yarn)    ********************** what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy?  Halloween dishes - I have a cool platter with witches on it for serving, could use a couple of plates or a bowl.    ******************** If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? Halloween dishes or candleholders, perhaps bits to decorate a wreath.    ************************ 9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested?  Always, especially if there is a recipe  with it.  This is one of my questions, so not really an issue.  ****************** Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  Honestly, I'm not hoping for a specific thing.  If you want a suggestion,  plan a long pampering spa/bath for me.  I'll bring the audio book & a glass of wine.    *********************** Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself? I am a maker of things.  I very rarely am gifted by another maker.  If you make things of some sort, I would be delighted to have something you made.  If you are not into making that's cool too. If you like to buy tools, I have recently become fascinated with pretty/handmade crochet hooks - any size from 3 to 8mm.   ***************** Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  I adore Penzeys, but honestly, I have a huge spice rack & a Penzeys store in my area, so I probably have it covered.  ********************* 9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty   Sorry, no I'm not much of a makeup person.  ********************* 9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks These are fun! I like the mermaid, Cheshire cat, or Jackolantern smile   ********************** one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?  Yes.  Fabrics I like from her list: 14, 15, 16, 18, 36, 40 - the one with the "sailor" guy looks like my husband. **********************  9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peek  & let me know if you might like to try something.    I love her lavender bath fizzies & lip balms like pear or vanilla .  *********************** 8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me!   I love all the crazy kit kat flavors. I've seen really neat crochet patterns- as long as it's charted I can work with it.  Ideally something like motifs I can repeat to make things.   ********************** What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries.  I always hesitate on buying nice bath oil - somehow it always seems too frivolous, even though I use it over a long time.    ************************ 8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? Perhaps bath Streusel & a candle for a nice evening's soak.  Maybe a lotion. Putney Road sounds really lovely.  GOAT sounds decadent. Cathedral of Pumpkins I enjoyed last year & would happily repeat. *********************  Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)? Not seeing anything currently offered.  This said, if they pop up a TKO atmo spray, or bath oil ( does TKO bath oil even Exist?) That would be amazing.

Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection?

Tokidoki, or Beetlejuice, or Hocus Pocus. You can usually find them at Barnes and Noble, Spirit, or Hot Topic.   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? Probably craft supplies and candy.   9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries.

Lavender and lemon sounds amazing.    Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself?? 
An acrylic sewing ruler, loungefly purse stuff, lushest Halloween collection    Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  Yes and yes!

Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! OMG. This is an option?! Uh yes! yes! candies, cute stationary, amazing little paper and hello kitty! Spooky cute stuff. I would love anything!   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. I dont get my favorite face cream (vanishing cream from lush) or because it seems frivolous because its expensive and I can use alternatives that work okay. I also dont buy as many books because I can go to the library and borrow. I dont often craft because I feel the supplies are too expensive and taking the time is selfish.     8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? I like a lot of this!!   Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)? Yes! Skeleton white hair gloss!

Switch Witch 2020 Questions

Update!   10/1/20   Would you be interested in anything from KBShimmer's new Fall nail polish collection or their Falloween collection? Oh, I love nail polish! I like the Take it of Leaf it, Bugs & Kisses, Eyes on the Pies, and Fully Booked.    Witchee, darlin', anything appeal from this goth-metal-Satanic Tea company, Pitch Black North? https://www.pitchblacknorth.com/category/all-tea OMG that looks great! Those tea balls are fire! I do loooove that if I got that leviathan ball from a bpaler! Antichrist pumpkin spice and coconut chai sound delicious.      9/2   I happen to live near this amazing place.  Do you have any interest is anything that I could pick up there?  The have hand made pottery, cookie molds, cookbooks with historical recipes all sorts of good stuff.  https://www.gcv.org/shop/ All that looks amazing! I would love the alphabet or number dice game   https://www.poesieperfume.com/loose-leaf-tea  <---- would you be interested in receiving tea and / or scents from Poesie? Oh no! It looks like the website is down at the moment. I looked at the cached version from 9/16, and this is what I saw from the tea section: Union (peaches, petals and honeybush), Osborne House (lavender rose vanilla rooibos). Scents: Villa Diodati, Innocence, Madar, Myself Invisible   I have been remiss--witchee (or anyone needing a minion), I am notorious for homemade caramels, shortbreads both savory and sweet, and catnip/catnip laced toys.  I've also started playing with homemade marshmallows and fruit candies.  Any interest? I would love that! Homemade shortbread sounds amazing. Caramel shortbread with milk chocolate YES   9/22/20   Would you like any of Snag Tights’ Halloween offerings and if so, what size? I love an opaque (or semi-opaque) tight! Not footless, though. I'd love to try those mock garters! And those chub rub shorts! I would be a size C. I like the colors black, octopus, shark.    Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preference? Hmmm. I suppose I do have a preference for... "new information?" I like the social interaction, learning about new things and the surprise factor more than like... the "niceness" of the gift. So I suppose my preference is for several smaller, less expensive things that are new to me! Also, I consider anything custom and handmade amazingly awesome new information and interaction (and like something Hannibal themed would be treasured forever). But please don't stress out! I understand that I may be someone you've just "met" through the internet and it will be hard to get me the perfect thing. I love all gifts! I am genuinely a "it's the thought that counts" person.    Witchee, do you like tea? If so, what kind? I like tisanes and herbal teas over black and green teas. Yogi's Egyptian Licorice tea is my favorite.    Witchee, do you want anything?  Shirts, mugs, postcards from Anarchist Seattle, Portland, or New York.... https://www.redbubble.com/people/litlnemo/shop?artistUserName=litlnemo I always love a postcard!   Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along! yes PLEASE! 
Are you interested in receiving a burned CD of music? If so, name of genres, artists, styles that you are into or would like more of to explore. I actually no longer have a way of listening to CDs! Not in my car, not on my computer, not on my.... discman? Oh man! How the world has changed.    Do you have an Amazon wishlist?  If you do and you're ok with getting stuff from it, please share the link! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3E6QYYZVC8N0P?ref_=wl_share    Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay?  Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa?  What are your thoughts? It's ok? I don't have strong feelings one way or the other.     Candy corn – love it or loathe it?  Or just don’t care much one way or another? Meh, I don't like it. I'll try a funny flavor though!   9/19/20   Lilith are up! Is there anything from the release that you want? Decant or full bottles? I love the art on the bottles, but there is no need for them to be full. From Lilith's (and more) the scents they caught my eye: You are not alone, Shadows and Light, and Peanut.   How would you feel about recipes?   Love sharing recipes!   Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house.  I googled it and it sounds AWESOME! Thumbs up on kitsch! Something with a magic giant beaver would get a laugh from me. A shirt? The uglier the better. OMG do they sell underwear with the beaver on it? 😆 i want!   9/20/20   How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it.  I use those ammo boxes. They are perfect!   9/21/20   I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca?  Ooo a thin scarf would be usable! No animal fibers though, they don't agree with my skin   Witchee, darling, there's a *slight* chance I might be going on a trip next week and *might*, in the course of this trip, have access to Disneyworld goodies from Epcot and Magic Kingdom - any stuff you might desire? Hmmm. Oh! Anything with a porg! Enamel pin, stuffed animals.. whatever! My husband wants them all!   9/17/20   Is there something from your fandom that popped up in another country you'd be particularly interested in?  What, and what store? haha anything Hannibal. Doujinshi in particular is harder to find! Or any local ads with Mads Mikkelsen (including Carlsberg swag and stuff from Jack & Jones and BoConcept) Oh! I love dice, and if your FLGS (friendly local game shop) has any dice brand more particular to your country or even exclusive dice that would be awesome   Would you be interested in some boozy chocolates (or anything else) from https://www.chocolatemoonshine.com/ ? Wow, that looks tasty! Seriously awesome. I would LOVE a moonshine bar of any flavor, and I have a preference for chocolate with fruits and nuts.    9/18/20   Witchee, assuming you like home made/home canned condiment goodies, what is your spice level preference?   I love spicy! I think on a scale of 1 (mild) to 5 (really hot) I would be a 4.    Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?  Oh, this shop looks awesome! I am always up for a candle or a bar soap! Scentwise, Samhain Hard CIder sound the best to me!
9/16/20   Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom? https://www.etsy.com/shop/AprilGloom  (this is our @spookygrrrly - switch witch code coming soon to a spreadsheet near you.) Haha, I would never say no to an enamel pin! I like the skull in a jar the best   How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com ?  (This shop belongs to @twilighteyes - we can maybe crochet some of the unicorns that are sold out...) Oh wow yip yip aliens! I'll love to put some dice in them. And anything in that bookshelf fabric would be fab.   Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrianSerwayArt? Those are REALLY nice! I love anything with a death's head moth on it. Awakening, and the Fox and Crow stand out to me.
Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? Mostly I wear no socks, actually. I think I wear nylons and stockings more often than socks. I would love some stockings and suspenders, ha.   If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like? I am really close to one (walking distance). I love Trader Joes just the same, though! I love those lacey's chocolate cookie things (are they still around? i didn't see them last time)   How do you feel about local items from my city, like spicy (think chili) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol. I loooooove local items! It's a chance for me get to know you and another part of the county. And especially coffee! It would 100% be used. And I do enjoy spicy things! And for Albuquerque, New Mexico specifically, I took a road trip there for Breaking Bad! It was awesome! I went on one of those RV tours. Visited the car wash and the Denny's. And this is a total long shot, but Joel-Peter Witkin is a artist based there and if you see anything (like a postcard? IDK), it would be awesome (his stuff is NSFW though FYI)   do you have good feelings about Funko Pop?  Haha, boy do I! I have a ton and have been collecting for awhile. I even have a list https://www.hobbydb.com/marketplaces/poppriceguide/users/foxwrapped But I have almost everything already from my fandoms. My love for these little dolls is very fandom specific (so if they make a pop for a character I like, I'll buy it), not for funko pops generally.   Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections (restocks Friday 9/18 at 9:00 PST) https://miruscandles.com/collections https://briarwickcandles.com/collections My own question, but I'll answer it if it might help you! I love candles and atmospheric scents, and I mean it when I say I adore anything from my fandoms (Hannibal, Witcher, Midsommar, X-files, Always Sunny). Even if you get me something I already own, I know other geeks in my friends circle who would happily give it a home, ha (or maybe I'll just have two! bwahahha)   9/15/20   I have a friend who does pet caricatures. He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)? Ah, I have no pets. Sorry! Oh, but if your friend can do a penguin couple for me and my husband, we would get a kick out that!   Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end?
I do! I like wreaths. It's basically the only outdoor decor that I do. And I especially seasonally themed candles.    Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/fall-1)  Pumpkin butters!  I reach for this brand's pumpkin butters more than any other lotion/butter/cream. The scents Hex and Persephone's Descent sound good!   I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas?  Because I am me, an unapologetic obsessed fangirl, I would love anything themed to Hannibal: https://www.adagio.com/search/index.html?query=hannibal   What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home) Oh, all chocolate is tempting! I am here to explore, so I am good with what you decide. My chocolate tastes go toward the sweet, the fruity and nutty, and the stuff that goes good with wine.    9/14/20   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk I could always use body creams! But you can also never go wrong with a good bar soap. Scents that sound delightful: Bell Book and Candle, Blackcurrant Damson Frangipane, Orange Coconut Mallow
Do you have an Etsy wishlist? Does this work? https://www.etsy.com/people/foxwrapped?ref=hdr-fav   I wanted to share this link to a soapmaker I love and ask if y'all see anything you would like from them! https://www.herbneden.com/ Oo that rosemary and lavender sounds interesting   Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters? https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/collections/critters-2020?page=1 or other ones? Ooo I will look into this one in depth later. UPDATE! I have no idea if these are still available but these are the scents that sounded lovely: Black Squirrel, Red Squirrel (any of the squirrels really! but these two sound best), Bollocks, Lightning Storm, Crown   9/13/20   Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?  Well, right now? Beardsley, Clovis Trouille, Louise Bourgeois. Weirdo erotica, lowbrow, queer, unsettling horror, you know, the stuff that spooks the straights   Who is your fashion icon(s)?  Marlene Dietrich (I am not worthy)   What is your favorite mythological creature?  Vampires generally
is there anything you want from Lush? Any of the solid scrubs! Love and use them everyday   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation? Oh wow, that would be cool! No particular area though.   How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)? I would LOVE fudge. I like fudge with nuts, and the chocolate and peanut butter fudge sounds so lovely!   How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? I'll eat em! I'm not myself keto or sugar-free or low carb, but i will eat all of that.    9/12/20   Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality! Oh so cute! The Midnight Garden face cover is awesome! I also like the separated eggs art print.    What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? I love the Abstract 90s print face mask! And the introvert hair clip.  I am not a mother myself so the mom stuff wouldn't apply (the weird bit does, though).   Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? Oh I love nail polish! I like Cyrogenic Regrigerant! Also that nail sauce sounds awesome! In continuity or rise and shine scent.    I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!  ooo i love the look of pour art! All the organic forms. I love love love greens and blues (anything like looks like malachite/apatite/turquoise/copper) and neons. I am totally cool with a piece that is already finished.    After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ LOVE cat coven! Enamel pins always make me happy (Curious Wanderer), those slouchy shirts (Midgard), and OMG those utensil wraps would have been perfect (need a cute way to carry around my fork and spoon)  2) https://www.mineralgypsy.com ooo those poison bottles! And generally speaking i like malachite, lapis lazuli, bloodstone 3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop the lady bug about getting through today is nice! 4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/ This shop is probably awesome but it is currently closed while the shop owner moves 5) https://www.faunwood.com aw man, that isopod pin was kick ass! I like the oarfish print 6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/ OMG the peacock!  7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com LOVE Fiddler's Green! I have an issue (looks like it's no longer sold on the site) and one of their zine (Our Bogeys, Our Shelves). I will love with my whole heart stuff from Fiddler's Green. I think out of these artists/website, this is the one most me 8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com Love the Alchemist print.  (this is an amazing question btw and right up my art loving alley!)   One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size. oooo a french press cozy would be perfect! Use it everyday. My favorite colors are... well neon green actually!    I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? I looooove historical reproductions. Seriously all that stuff looks amazing! I am currently loving... cowboys, vikings and ancient egypt. Surprise me!   9/11/20 (thanks to twilighteyes for compiling this!)   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  Chocolate shortbread! I am a TOTAL anglophile so I would probably be happy with anything, honestly!  And I have no problem with kitsch   Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? Hannibal is my #1, my OTP. But I also really love the Witcher (Games and TV show), The X-files, currently enjoying RDR2 and Dune   9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? I would love a small cross stitch thing! I do cross stitch as well, and I appreciate others' work     9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)   Oh, I like the Skyrim one! https://www.studiodesade.com/Galleries/Studio-Artists/XAVIER/i-T2CZ5qk/A    If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? I unfortunately do not!    what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? OMG polyhedral dice! there are a TON to choose from, and I would be happy with any! for my particular style, i looooove this store: cozygamer.com   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? Whatever craft things I can use (glitter! for resin crafting), something kitschy if one catches my eye (probably some cute toy that I will play with for a little bit and then give to my sister or brother heh), some gummies   9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? I loooove homemade! I don't have many restrictions (not vegan/veggie, no serious allergies, I am OK with spicy). Out of those things, oooo lavender + vanilla!   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  A really sweet set of polyhedral dice!   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  oo I like both options! Getting something handmade as a gift is really special though ❤️    Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  OMG I love penzey's! My husband and I would love anything curry-ish. Also these look fun and interesting: ground mace, mace blade, bratwurst, frozen pizza seasoning, ground galangal and kind of unrelated I would love a peppermill/grinder (doesn't have to be from penzey's or fancy!)   9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty This is my own question, but I ask because they have Hannibal items and I want everything Hannibal!   9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks?  I have to wear a mask to work as well (8+ hours) and I prefer the non-ear masks, but the plague doctor mask is cute! For Hakutaku I like the comic book fabric (#26), and the kinda gorey-ish one (#22).   9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something.  I am not familiar, but that Wool Wash sounds interesting! The orange cinnamon and mint julep soaps too   8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! OMG Obsessed with gudetama ahha. If there are any hannibal doujinshi hooolyy shiiiiiet   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries.

  Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?   Ooh, yes!!!  Candles or soap, in the Halloween scents look great.  The Eloise Asylum, Crooked Cornmaze, and Haunted Woods in particular caught my eye, but many of them look very interesting.         9/17/20 Is there something from your fandom that popped up in another country you'd be particularly interested in?  What, and what store?  Not that I am aware of.       Would you be interested in some boozy chocolates (or anything else) from https://www.chocolatemoonshine.com/? The boozy ones look interesting!  I am an odd one though who dislikes chocolate with fruit flavors.     9/16 Would you, my dear Witchee, like anything from April Gloom?  The ghost in the teapots are kind of cute!    How about from https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com   I really like the "Blinded me with Science" project bag!     Are you a sock person?  If so what are your favourite kinds to wear?  Do you have a sockdreams wishlist? Definitely a sock person!  I like soft, warm, thick, DURABLE socks but also need more socks for exercise.  Crew socks /hiking socks are my preference.  No toe socks!!!  I'm more about comfort than "style", and most of my socks are black, grey, or navy blue.  Men's socks are fine too!      Would you enjoy anything from my friend Brian's Etsy shop?  I can tell he is very talented, but it's not really my style.     If you're not near one, is there anything from Trader Joe's you'd like?  I live near one.     How do you feel about local items from my city (Albuquerque, NM), like spicy (think chile) things or local coffee? The coffee is not spicy lol. Pinion things, like incense perhaps? Prickly pear jelly? I LOVE all things spicy!  And I love coffee and pinon incense, so YES to those.  I really don't use much jelly/jam or preserves.     They're not my jam, but do you have good feelings about Funko Pop? I'm asking because I realize many people like them.  Not my jam, either.       Candles! Anything from these places catch your fancy? https://cantripcandles.com/collections (restocks Friday 9/18 at 9:00 PST). The Blackhound Tavern candle looks AMAZING!!!    https://miruscandles.com/collections.   These look cool, but I have a hard time guessing what they would smell like.    https://briarwickcandles.com/collections. Some of the Autumn edition look nice.       9/15 Herb'n Eden...anything look good?   Maybe the Vanilla Mint Coffee soap, but TBH, Paintbox Soapworks and Haus of Gloi products have more appeal to me.     Would you like anything from House of Gloi, especially from their Autumn Update?  I love HoG stuff.  I'd really like to try any of their products in Ghost Puffs (and I think they had a Toasted Ghost Puffs, but it might be gone now).  Olde Cider Haus sounds nice too.     I know the tea question has been asked, but what, specifically, about Adagio teas? I'd love to try Kentucky Bourbon tea!    The Flavors Sampler might be good to try as well.     What about anything tempting from Dandelion Chocolate?  The cocktail bitters all sound amazing!!!!     Do you decorate seasonally/for holidays?  Is there anything in particular you would like to that end?  I do indeed, and I go all out.  I really like both Halloween and Christmas decorations with a vintage feel, for example, (but not necessarily), this.   I also like cute little pumpkins.  I've seen some really nice velvet pumpkins in various places this year that I would love.  For example, this.      Nui Cobalt Designs perfumes...(just got her latest email): How about the scents being discontinued? The Critters? https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/collections/critters-2020?page=1 or other ones?  Hecate Enoida, Perseids, Porch Swing, FIrst Harvest: Grain, and especially Appalachian Autumn sound really nice.     I have a friend who does pet caricatures. He's done ones for all of my pets. Is this something you would be interested of for your pet(s)?  You know, this sounds nice, but I don't think it is something I would really love as much as I should.     9/14   Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk :  Dark Carnival sounds wonderful!   So does Milk Wood.  I'd love to try many of their products.  
Do you have an Etsy wishlist?  I do!  I'll have to update it a bit.  https://www.etsy.com/people/wbedale?ref=hdr-fav&amp;tab=items   9/13   Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation?  Having never had one, I'm not sure...      How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop? (See link to my shop in my signature) -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)? A small amount of a good basic fudge or maybe a pumpkin fudge would be tasty.    How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? Its how I live, so Im pretty damn good at it.   I would be ok with these, but I'm not afraid of carbs either.     is there anything you want from Lush?  I love all things Lush.  I could use another shampoo bar.       Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist?   I like Grant Wood, Marvin Cone, and other 20th-century American artists.  I like folk artists like Debbie Criswell or Billy Jacobs.  You can see a small sample of things l like here.     Who is your fashion icon(s)?   I'm sad to say I don't have a very sophisticated sense of fashion.  However, I get the Gudron Sjoden catalogs (I LOVE her stuff but it's pricey).  I like bright colors and comfort.     What is your favorite mythological creature?    I like the idea of some of the old goddesses like Freya and Boann.      I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request!   I would love to see these!       After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! 1) https://www.catcoven.com/ - 2)  https://www.mineralgypsy.com -  3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop  4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/   5) https://www.faunwood.com -  6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/  7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com - 8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com     One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it. So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size.  Mittens or cowls would be great!       I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in?  Ooo, some cool things here!  I would be very interested in the Turkish Rouge or the Rice Face Powder.       9/12/2020 Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality!  The notebooks look nice!  I like the Magical Rosemary with the dot grid in particular.     What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific?  I like the strawberry and the daisy face masks!     Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you?  I'd be interested in some of their bath/body products in the Continuity scent, perhaps.       9/11/20   How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   I love all of these things, especially incense and candles.  Fall-ish scents are nice for candles;  for incense, I tend to like the more subtle scents.     Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?   My DH is very supportive of my SW participation.  He will be starting to grow his annual beard soon.  He will sometimes wear a bit of a BPAL in the more masculine scents.  We have two dogs (big, outside dogs) and one inside cat.  Elsie the cat enjoys toys.  The puppies like healthy treats.     How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?    I adore tea!!!    I basically like most tea:  black, oolong, green, herbal, loose, bags, etc.  I don't generally like sweetened tea, though.  I think I have enough tea tools.  The glass double-walled nordic tea mug with lid is pretty cool!  I've never tried matcha, and I'm curious about that.      9/9/20   would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders?  Sure!  I used to do a lot of cross stitching, and I might start up again.     9/8/20   Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)  They are very nice, although maybe not my usual style.  Some of the masks I would wear though!   If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors?  I have not crocheted in a long time, and I was never very good at it, but if I had some nice pretty yarn I might start up again!   what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? Some cute Halloween tchochtke   If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? A kitchen gadget, a weird flavor of candy corn, and a box of enameled binder clips     9/5/20   what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla.   These all sound fantastic!!!   Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself??  Not really:  part of the fun for me in doing Switch Witch is learning about/meeting new friends and finding out about things I’ve never heard of before.   Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself?  Either is good!   Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)?  I live close to a Penzeys and already have MASSIVE amounts of their products in every spare niche of my kitchen.  So I’m good!   9/3/20   Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty  Sure!  The Halloween perfumes look interesting and the candles too!  9/2/20   Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks  I love the Jack’o Lantern smile one!     one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks? These are gorgeous!  I would love one of these.    9/1/20   are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something. Maybe some of the soaps? 8/30/20   Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! I’d love to try some of those odd Kit Ka flavors!  Maybe not the salty lychee, though…   What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries.  I love lighting candles, burning incense, taking long baths.      8/29/20   Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)?  I love their products.  ANYTHING in Cathedral of Pumpkins, Hex on the Beach, Putney Road, or Demeter, Forsaken!  YES!   Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)? The Honey Maple Hot Toddy Hair Gloss looks great!   Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  I do adore good, strong, black teas and chocolate covered Hob Nobs.    Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? I think not.

  Would you be interested in anything from Cellar Door Bath Supply Co.?  Most of them sound pretty yummy   9/19/20   Lilith are up! Is there anything from the release that you want? Decant or full bottles? Baby's first Chainsaw sounds intriguing, definitely loving the notes in Interlude. add to that you are not alone as well.   How would you feel about recipes?  recipes are a fantastic Idea, I love the idea of making my Witch's favourite foods.   Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house.   Sure!   9/20/20   How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it.  I don't have a complex system, they are in ammo cases and I store them alphabetically.   9/21/20   I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca?  I also knit and crochet, as does most members of my extended family.  I have enough cloths and scarfs, etc, so please don't be offended- my cupboards are already overflowing with them.   Witchee, darling, there's a *slight* chance I might be going on a trip next week and *might*, in the course of this trip, have access to Disneyworld goodies from Epcot and Magic Kingdom - any stuff you might desire?  OH YES, BIG BIG YES. any Halloween decor,  any and all of the dresses from the boutiques (NOT that I expect you to pay that , I'm just making a list as we go), but especially the haunted mansion ride dress- actually anything haunted mansion will be appreciated, honestly this is a difficult question for me to answer because when it comes to disney, I basically want all the things...     9/22/20   Would you like any of Snag Tights’ Halloween offerings and if so, what size?  So I answered this on the actual thread of conversation, but will state here that you can't go wrong with stripey tights.  The mermaid ones look pretty awesome as well.   Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preferance? This is such a loaded question for all the reasons that have been posted in the thread.  I have no preference as I know whatever I receive will be sent with thoughfulness and love, and that My Witch did what she thought was the best for me and for her time/budget. So no preference here at all.   Witchee, do you like tea? If so, what kind? I do enjoy a good cup of tea, I like Irish breakfast and flavoured ones.  Steer clear of anything with orange in it though, I have never found one I have liked.   Witchee, do you want anything?  Shirts, mugs, postcards from Anarchist Seattle, Portland, or New York.... https://www.redbubble.com/people/litlnemo/shop?artistUserName=litlnemo  I'm good, thanks   Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along! I would be only if the person I get them from doesn't mind that they may not actually be used as tarot but possibly for mixed media art projects.
Are you interested in receiving a burned CD of music? If so, name of genres, artists, styles that you are into or would like more of to explore.  I love discovering new music.  Generally these forums is where my tastes get expanded.  So if you have some favourite artists or bands, send them along- although I might suggest a usb stick instead of a cd, as I have had one break in transit.   Do you have an Amazon wishlist?  If you do and you're ok with getting stuff from it, please share the link! My wishlist is actually my cart, but once I have a moment or two, I will make one and post the link.   Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay?  Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa?  What are your thoughts? You can't have enough pumpkin spice, the only thing I don't like it  in is lip balm, oddly.   Candy corn – love it or loathe it?  Or just don’t care much one way or another?   Not a huge fan, but am curious about the thanksgiving ones that have been making the rounds, but other than that they are meh.   9/23/20   https://www.poesieperfume.com/loose-leaf-tea  <---- would you be interested in receiving tea and / or scents from Poesie?   London Smoke and Twice to Tea sound like they would be right up my alley tea wise, and I didn't get to look long at every thing, but Charm of Making describes as a  scent I would like.   I have been remiss--witchee (or anyone needing a minion), I am notorious for homemade caramels, shortbreads both savory and sweet, and catnip/catnip laced toys.  I've also started playing with homemade marshmallows and fruit candies.  Any interest?  I do love me some caramels, and funky flavours are always welcome   9/25/20   I happen to live near this amazing place.  Do you have any interest is anything that I could pick up there?  The have hand made pottery, cookie molds, cookbooks with historical recipes all sorts of good stuff.  https://www.gcv.org/shop/   The slipglaze crock is gorgeous, as are the pie plates.     10/1/20   Would you be interested in anything from KBShimmer's new Fall nail polish collection or their Falloween collection?  Fully Booked and Bugs and Kisses are my picks from the Fall Collection,  Take it or Leaf it, and Creep it Together are my picks from Falloween   10/3/20   Witchee, darlin', anything appeal from this goth-metal-Satanic Tea company, Pitch Black North? https://www.pitchblacknorth.com/category/all-tea  Vanilla Earl Grey or Black Lavender   WITCHEE, WOULD YOU LIKE ANY OF THESE?  Don't just say "yes" -- please be specific about which ones you want the most!   Brown Sugar Plum Butter Pflaumenmus (also Plum Butter) Cardamom Plum Jam Star Anise Plum Jam Ginger Peach Butter Vanilla Peach Jam Sweet Green Tomato Relish Dill Green Tomato Relish Huckleberry Jam Apple Butter Candied Jalapenos (delicious with cream cheese on burgers or crackers) Lavender Vanilla Bean liqueur Rose Petal liqueur   Star Anise Plum jam, Ginger Peach Butter, Vanilla Peach Jam, Candied Jalapenos (YES PLEASE!) Lavender Vanilla Bean Liqueur all sound DIVINE   10/4/20   the other day I found the pattern I made for a small crocheted skull. I have made some before and included some herbs and oils and such, things that both smell good and are said to carry protective virtues, in the stuffing, and hooked them up to hang in a vehicle or such. Would any of y'all like one of those?  I love this idea!   10/5/20   is anyone a Daredevil fan??  I'm going to be working with Christopher Brewster who is Daredevil in the suit (i.e. the stunt performer but not the FACE of the actor... but when the suit is on... its Brewster).  I worked with him on something else... and he was super cool... excited to get to work with him again... but if that's anyone's fandom... I wanna know LOL   My Son is a HUGE Daredevil fan, he would be so pumped by this.
