switch witch help - halloween 2017

9/19/17

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

9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
I like short socks- like the kind that comes only up to the ankle or just below. No fiber preference!

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Yes

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Yes
So what are your favorite fandoms?
Disney everything, Hannibal (the TV show), Harry Potter

9/17/17

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
I LOVE lavender everything!
are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
Not really into divination

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

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
No

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

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?
Probably amethyst? I like purple. Opals are pretty too.

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

How do you feel about chokers?
No thank you

9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
A vertical door type Halloween banner would be cute!

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

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

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

9/14/17

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?
My kitties are picky and mostly not interested in treats, although they both love catnip. My pug LOVES stuffed squeaky toys (he will only play with soft toys- nothing rubber or plastic). He loves treats (being a pug) but they have to be grain-free and he can't eat pork.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
Nope
Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)
I'm interested in a few of the hair glosses and I think one or two of the Fatherhood scents but I will probably be placing a BPTP order of my own pretty soon!

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?
-If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
I am not much of a gamer but I have a 3DS that I love and play all the time. I love everything related to Animal Crossing. I also like Pokemon a lot!

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

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

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

Like Wine? What kinds?
I am just getting into wine. I love champagne and sparkling wine, and I really like red wine as well. I definitely prefer my wines to be on the dry side.
Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
I don't know what a hair fall is... but I probably would not wear it.
For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?
This year, I am actually planning to celebrate the whole season by watching a new-to-me horror movie (mostly- other seasonally appropriate stuff can make the list, too) every day of October. Recommendations are welcome! Otherwise, Nightmare Before Christmas is my traditional Halloween movie (I love Christmas too and basically start getting ready for it the day after Halloween- sorry, Thanksgiving- so it provides a nice segue, haha). Last year I watched Trick R Treat for the first time and loved it and I feel like that is now mandatory Halloween viewing. Also Hocus Pocus is a totally nostalgic classic for me- I used to watch it every Halloween as a kid! Any kind of merch is great, too!
9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
I would definitely try the soap!
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
I like pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons, black cats, and bats! Pumpkins are my favorite! I like things on the cute side of spooky and stay away from gory or gross imagery. I also really, really, really hate spiders so no spiders please!
Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
Yes, any or all of the above!
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
I am a fidgety person but I have played with a fidget spinner and it did absolutely nothing for me. I do like having silly little toys and stuff on my desk, though!

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

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

9/11/17

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

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

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
No fiber allergies that I know of! I am mystified by knitting and would be impressed and amazed by anything you could create for me. I would probably get the most use out of a scarf (in bright colors! or slytherin colors!) or gloves.
Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best.
I think I have one or two things from there on my Etsy wishlist.

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

9/10/17

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9/9/17

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

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

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

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

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

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

9/8/17

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9/6/17

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
I just got an antique card catalog which fits my bpal collection *perfectly* and I am really happy with that! I could use something small for bringing perfume with me when I travel, though!

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

What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever...
I started eating low carb a few months ago (we started out doing keto, but it was difficult for me because I don’t eat meat, so I started upping my daily carb count and I am still seeing progress so I plan to continue this way for a while). I try to stay flexible and plan regular cheat days for my own sanity, so don’t worry about sending me anything carby, haha.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
Not a fan

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

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

9/4/17

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

Switch Witch HALLOWEEEEEN 2017 part two

Part two!

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

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

Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
Sure! Just nothing spicy. And no candles. Wax tarts are okay, but I can't have open flames because my cats don't understand fire.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store
Ooh, The Reader, Hail to the Freaks, Starman, Spell of Ravensong, Danse Macabre. I'm not so sure about a print unless it was already framed (ask me about my to-frame print collection!), but on something like a pillow/makeup bag/tote bag/etc. would be lovely.
Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things?
The style, yes. Decorative items sturdy enough that they wouldn't get wrecked if dropped from a height of three feet (because cats!), sure. Wearable items like earrings, collars, masks, not so much.

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

Weenies 2017! (Decants are perfect!)
All Souls
Apple Butter Rum
Cardamom Cream Pumpkin Cake
Cinnamon Chai Cupcake
Day of Skulls
Feeding the Dead
La Calavera Catrina
Samhain
Sugar Skull
Pumpkin Spice Cathedral
Pumpkin Spice Harlot
Pumpkin Spice Opium Poppy
Pumpkin Spice Snake Oil
Bobbing for Apples
Pumpkin Spice Everything
Suspicion of Foul Play

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

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

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson
Holy bats, YES. A travel mug, tote bag, pillow, or carry-all bag would be amazing. Anything but the stripes. Also any of the stickers (except The Goat. He's not really calling to me) on a white background so they really pop against my journal cover. Any of the all-over print t-shirts in xxl. Lined notebook. Gah, the more I look at her stuff, the more I want!
Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
Holy wow. I think I want everything.
Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)
All of the above! Except chain maille if we're talking jewelry. And I don't really wear enough hats to warrant getting another one. Colors: Green, purple, blue, hot pink.

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?
I don't collect anything, but it would be nice to have a dishwasher-safe travel mug that fits in a car cupholder.

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

do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)
Hard pass on anything spicy.

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
I don't collect them, although if there is one with a black cat on it, I would love it. I collect black cat things!

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

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

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

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?
Pass on this.

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

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like?
I'm not really into crystals.

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?

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

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)
This sounds like it would be really nice for winter leg cramps!

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

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

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

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

I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.
I like apples (and I love Honeycrisps!), but I'm not really a fan of dehydrated apples unless they're the crunchy-like-a-potato-chip freeze-dried style.

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases?
I love bags! Something that would encourage me to pack a lunch for work would be especially neat. Pillowcases would be neat, too.

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

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

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?
iPad mini, iPhone 7, 13" Macbook. I'll pass on things for the iPad and iPhone (I love the cases/covers I already have for them!), but something for my laptop would be cool.

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
See's was my family's Fancy Chocolate growing up! I love pretty much everything they make except chocolate with orange or berry flavors.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!
Wax tarts, incense, oven mitts/potholders (especially if they were fannish), and kitty toys (especially local catnip). And then I would double back for a second round through the show to see what else there is!

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

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

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)
I've noticed a lot of people make sure to state their level-of-horror/style-of-Halloween preferences, so I might as well mention: I like pretty much all styles of Halloween, and I'm a huge fan of horror of all types. Slow burn, goofy slapstick, full-tilt terror you name it. I have a very high threshold for scariness in horror, and I'm not a fan of jump scares and torture porn because I feel like those are shortcuts for very lazy storytellers, but there is not any such thing as too scary in my book.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
Secret lair/workshop of a billionaire superhero. Or art nouveau bordello. One or the other.

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

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

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

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

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

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

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
I'm interested in it, but I don't personally do it, mainly because I don't have a clue where to start. I own a few tarot decks (Rider-Waite, Alice in Wonderland, and gummy bears), but I have no idea how to use them. I would definitely be open to trying pretty much anything (book, tool, whatever) if you had a beginner's sort of thing in mind.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
Those are really cute! But banners in general are not really my style.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?
Trader Joe's is my main grocery store! I'm not a pumpkin fan, though. I think the only pumpkin thing I like is their pumpkin spice rooibos tea.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
Nope. I think Gummy Drop on my phone is the extent of my gaming. I don't even play board or card games.

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

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

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
I'll pass. I have very short hair not conducive to hair accessories. Plus these look like something that would just end up being stolen by my cats!

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?
It's not Halloween without Donnie Darko, Trick R Treat, and The Lost Boys. Some I try to watch every year but don't always manage to get to: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Scream, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Ginger Snaps, The Evil Dead/Army of Darkness, and probably a few more I'm blanking on (but not Nightmare Before Christmas. That's a Christmas movie for me). Fan merch is fun!

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

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
Sweet tooth! I have one! I love pretty much any Halloween candy (except black licorice or circus peanuts), and specialty/local candy is extra-awesome.
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
I love frivolous things! Except I'll pass on a fidget spinner. Those specifically make me agitated for some reason.

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

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

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

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

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

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
Format doesn't really matter. I just love reading!

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
Anything but candles! Open flames + my very inquisitive kitties = BAD THINGS. They don't seem to have this problem with incense or wax tarts/burners. As far as brands go, I don't have favorites. As far as scents go, I don't really have favorites there, although "white" notes are not for me.

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

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

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

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/) the Whipped Soap looks cool!

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? Is Beth famous enough?!? Because her for her scent knowledge alone would be cool. Viggo Mortensen because he speaks like a dozen languages and is rather artsy and learned, and I find him a wee bit hot lol. And because I can't think of anyone else offhand, why not invite Ted along? He's hilarious!

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best. I like their style, sure

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
No thanks

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

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
I do both! Love my Kindle but I love a real book too. I like a wide variety of books, adventure, fantasy, science-fi, detective. Scary horror sounds great!

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
While I love a great decorative candle, I don't like to burn them much anymore. Tarts are ok but I LOVE incense made with real ingredients and not sprayed with fragrance. I have a tart burner and a few incense burners lol

Maybe. No. OMG I'm trying to destash but am open to pretty yarn always. But I have too much lol

Like Wine? What kinds?
LOVE. Mostly red, but a good fruit forward reisling is awesome too. Particularly fond of port and I've had a couple meads that make me want to explore more meads.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
No thanks

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? No it's just me

Nope

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
Love things like this. Handcrafted is so much better than store bought!

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I do! Always love trying new spice blends or fancy salts. I like to use different oils and vinegars as well

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

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
Somethig handcrafted if that's your thing - could be an edible, a decor item, whatever! Something you create with your own hands.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
Sure

Favorite gemstones?
Ah so many! Rhodocrosite, amethyst, carnelian, turquoise, coral.......

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
I'm very small bones so I need smaller scale. I don't like flashy and earrings have to be light. Whimsical is fine but not gaudy

Any love of pirates or SCA?
I wish I knew folks who were into SCA as I think I'd love it but alas, no.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
Nope

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
Love the movies and books but that's about it. I suspect I'd be Griffyndor

How do you feel about chokers? I like them

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
Send me all the lavender things! I particularly would love some culinary lavender. And macarons. Heaven would be a lavender macaron

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
I have dabbled with runes, tarot, and scrying but that's about it.

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
Oh yes!!

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
I need a new bottle of TAL Peace

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
Lavender pumpkin sounds divine, they have a soap like that. Patchouli bergamot too. All things patchouli I love!!

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
I love novelty socks and wear anklets, crew, and mid calf. Am open to all fibers

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
Absolutely

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Of course

So what are your favorite fandoms?
Doctor Who and Star Trek

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
see wishlist above LOL

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
Two strange things I haven't gotten around to getting myself and might not for a while but I want to try - that weird black peel mask that folks are all over and I can't remember the name lol and that Baby Feet foot peel

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)
Life is stressful right now and I'm having some health issues again so anything that helps me relax and escape is good

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
I'd kill to have a spare room to decorate with TARDIS theme

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? Hahahaha yes to all

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?
I do but haven't seen nearly enough of them. I absolutely adored Wicked and Evita and have the soundtraks to both. A Wicked shirt would be cool

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there? I can't think of anything?


I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? I have ever been to any of these cons. I really don't have an idea what's available? Feeling clueless lol

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
There's some real cute things there! The sandstone scarf caught my eyehttp://www.globalgirlfriend.com/collections/scarves/products/sandstone-scarf as did this map bowl and this tote with the vintage sewing maching because I have two machines like that! In personal products, the shea butter and soaps all looked cool too

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
Chagrin Valley Soaps is the only one I can think of right now....though I have a great fondness for almost anything from ZIngermann's

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!
A rigid heddle loom and a spinning wheel! The dream items I WILL get one day. But also some cool roving to practice hand spindling, maybe some raw wool fibers. I have a pair of carders and am not afraid of dirty fleece, I've cleaned one before I am only a newb to spindling but I think I'd like to try a supported spindle too. I have a simple top whorl spindle

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
Cinnamon Scotch Apple Mallows sound divine, reaslly any of the seasonal stuff. I am particularly fond of caramels, toffee, turtles, and a good fruit cream

Are any witchees into coloring books?
Oh yes, but I have soooo many already lol. And multipe sets of pencils and markers.......

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
Eeks! I love this site!! SO many cute tea infusers! I also adore the Lemoniere Lemon Juicer, the Nessie Family, the Mobi Lid, the Belle Fresh Pod, the Eggondola Egg Poacher, and the Penneli Garlic Peeler

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?
Well my place is very small so I rarely entertain. Honestly, one would do!

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

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
I do, but rarely indulge. Generally in very cold weather, but I just love the luxery of a good hot bath soak. I will use herbal infusions or milk baths, or salts. Very rarely I'll use a fizzy thing but those can be drying so not often at all but they can be so fun lol

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?
iPhone 6+ but I have a case already and have no other mobile devices

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
I have enjoyed their mint/eucalyptus products. Haven't really tried anything form them in quite a while

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like?
This will sound strange - but I'm lacking a true red or yellow crystal lol

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
Pumpkin. All the pumpkin things! Though I have never been known to turn down zucchini bread, I have had my fill lately from a coworker who planted zucchini this year

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Molasses crinkles but i really like buttery tender cookies with nuts in them. And Snickerdoodles. And anything chocolate. I guess I love most cookies lol

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)
As intrigued as I am, I think this would irritate my skin so no

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
Yes, though the lavender interests me most. I love all things lavender

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
Yes please!! I use honey regularly. It's the beginning of flu season so I'll need to make my elderberry syrup soon. I also have a homemade decongestant I make that uses honey. It works as a flu and cold deterrent/fighter as well so I like it on hand in winter

Would you like somemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
I think I'd pass on this. I love the idea on wonderful flavor combos I see at farmers markets, but I am not really a preserve person in use

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
​Yuck no! Sorry but while I love strong garlic, ginger, and spicy food, I am super sensitive to capsican heat and do not do hot peppers. I do like things like fermented garlic but without hot peppers

I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.
Sounds great! I love all the dehydrated veggies and fruit, and love when I come across good more naturally made jerky

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases?
I always have use for tote bags. I don't drive, walk everywhere and carry groceries and the such. No need for a dice or cosmetic bag, and I have a few nice project bags for my knitting.
Pillowcases are always fun

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
I do! Nothing in particular I'm looking for, and too many to list what I have. I only have Banded Sea Snake from the new Carnival Diabolique

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
Very pretty!

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
Owls, chicken/roosters, dragons, dragonflies, Chthulu and cows

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

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

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?

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

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson

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

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)

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

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

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

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???

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

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store

Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things?

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?
Vanilla Bean or Rosemary Mint body butter sounds great

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

13 of 17 ? Roundup

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com

No, thank you

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
-Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)

Not yet, but I'll come back to this if something occurs to me.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?

I do wear socks, I prefer longer length and if they have toes like gloves have fingers - so much the better!

Would you be open to previously-loved books?

Always

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?

I prefer partial bottles, actually. I like a lot of variety and I go through scent really slowly (imps last me over a year).

So what are your favorite fandoms?

Tim Burton prior to Planet of the Apes (though I do like Sweeney Todd and Sleepy Hollow), Twin Peaks, Nightmare Before Christmas *always*, anything Mythos-related. Hellraiser. Other fandoms I think I answered in the podcast question.

9/17/17

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

I'm not that fond of lavender, and I don't know France well enough to know what else to ask for. Feel free to surprise me!

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?

N/A (though I love Tarot art)

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

I'd be curious to have an Astrology reading done

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?

A spell kit for luck wouldn't be amiss

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?

Bar soaps and candles are always good

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?

Hematite, garnet, amber, tiger's eye and opal

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?

I miss the SCA, and I do love pirates

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?

No, thank you

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?

Not a Potterhead

How do you feel about chokers?

Love them!

9/15/17

Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?

I fear our damp winter climate would ruin such a thing, our slight overhang wouldn't provide much protection.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?

I do live near a Joe's, I'm looking forward to their pumpkin spice coffee. Of course my absolute favorite is their candy cane Joe-joe's, but we're not quite there yet.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?

I do cook and like exploring various cuisines. Can;t think of anything I especially want at the moment (other than more food huggers - those are so awesome). Surprise me! (provided it's vege friendly)

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

I'm good, thank you, though it reminds me I miss having a bike

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

A Lisa Snellings October is Coming poppet. Except the zombie poppet, I have that one.
Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?

For sentimental value, sure


9/14/17

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?

The four leggeds are super fussy. The kitties like Greenies exclusively, and the pup does trachs and bully sticks (the circular ones last longest). None of them really play with toys.

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


Any of the Curses, Vampire Wine & Champagne, Legends of Horror Cinema or NAlloween blends (except Vanilla Bat), Potion n.113, Pumpkins 7 & 14

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)

Harvest Festival or Orchards of Hell Atmos, or the Bloodbath BO from etsy. Beautiful Implacable Tyrant or Halr Loosened and Soiled Mid Orgies HG.

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?

I do have a steam account, I believe I'm psuke or psuke1 there.
How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy!

I practically never wear scarves, but I do love a good cowl.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
-Like booze? What kinds?
-Like Wine? What kinds?

I'm grouping these because we pretty much never drink. I do like a good cider, and in Colorado Springs, CO there was a beer called Laughing Lab that I totally adored, but can't find outside that state. New Belvedere was the brewing company, I think. My favorite alcohol ever is called Strega, and we do reds in this house.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!

I would invent an occasion to wear something like that if you made it for me

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?

We love the black & white horror, and most of the horror up to about the 80's. Japanese ghost movies are also awesome. Fan made merch for the classic b&w would be fantastic!

9/12/17

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

Any of the bar soaps would be lovely!

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?

Witches, grim reapers, spiders, webs and bats. I'm over zombies. Like, really over.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?

I do eat candy. Sometimes I think I eat too much candy, but we'll not go into that. Smarties and bottle caps, or similar would be awesome! Specialty candy and chocolate also welcome.
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?

Not a fidget spinner, but some other kind of desk toy could be fun

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?

I love zentangle! I've done it a few times, but now I need glasses to do it or it makes my eyes hurt.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?

Fascinators and mini hats definitely!

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

Honey or candy could be tasty. We don't really use jam

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?

Yarn subscription boxes, or maybe the Goth Black Box would be more my speed. I did Julep for awhile, but canceled as I just couldn't keep up. I do the EC Boom!box and like that one,

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?

My 20 (or even 30) year says "Awesome!", but now I wouldn't know where I'd wear it.
How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?

I don't like to much music these days, but when I do it's mostly Youtube or Google Play.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?

Err, not to get overly political, but I'm avoiding Amazon. Kobo or B&N work great though! And physical books are always welcome. Scary, classic and horror are all fine, but please no zombies or supernatural porn (a la Charlaine Harris or Anita Blake) - I've read my fill of those.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?

Any are good. I don't have a tart burner, but sometimes tarts smell strong enough wihout heating (like the Moonalisa tarts). Weenie candle holders are always fun, and I wouldn't say no to an oil burner.


Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?

Oh, yes! I knit and crochet, bead and wire wrap. I'm missing all my supplies - they're in storage a few hundred miles away. Well, I have my Addi Click interchangeables, some double points and yarn. But the rest are.


9/12/17

Do you want wax melts?
I have no burner, but I've gotten sample wax melts from Moonalisa and just place them around and it works fine.

9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would be interested in?

YUZU! (Sorry to shout, but it's *impossible* to find here, unless I want to pay crazy shipping costs from specialty orchards)

I'm in The Netherlands. Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in?

I'm not sure...try me.

Bath & Body Works - love them or hate them? If the former, fave product types?

Not so much a fan

how would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? if you are on board with that, would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?

I'd love one! Something for 20+ bottles, for when my collection and I are reunited.


if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?

Cowls, mitts, socks. I don't wear many scarves, and I never wear mittens.

Nail wraps - yay or nay? Would including a small manicure set to go with them help?

My job is too hard on my nails for wraps.
9/9/17

Disney?
If so, any favorite characters?

Nightmare Before Christmas. I *loved* Little Mermaid, but not so much from a merch perspective.
And to be more specific about Disney: How do you feel about Beauty and the beast?

Eh. Little Mermaid was the last Disney that sent me over the moon. I've enjoyed others, but not loved them

And what about Harry Potter related items?
Pokemon? Any favorites?

No
Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)?

No candy corn or Peeps, please. And if I never see another zombie it will be too soon. The only exceptions would be art from Ursula Vernon or Lisa Snellings.

What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap?

Figurines (smallish), smallish prints, knitted oddities, jewelry
9/9/17

What rares are you dying to try?

Eve, Ava, Monsterbait Underpants - this one mostly because I'm curious about the hype.

Do you like comic books and/or graphic novels?

I loved Sandman, early Transmet and The Invisibles. I'm willing to try more Warren Ellis stuff. I read Girl Genius, Dresden Codak and Gunnerkrigg Court (all online) when I remember.

9/8/17

Are you ok with homemade food?
Yes, provided it's vegetarian

If you are ok with decorations, do you have a preference for table-top, wall hanging, or window decorations?

I'd love decorations, Give me all the decorations.

How do you feel about stationary and/or papercrafting supplies?

I am kind of a stationary supplies slut, although I'm not such a fan of the pastel flower-type that seems ubiquitous, I like darker themes, or filigree. Gorey-style Victoriana - I think there's a Gorey shop somewhere that used to have stamps that were fabulous. Victorian/iligree washi tape is good, too.

How do you feel about kitschy/silly Halloween jewelry?

It's fabulous! Only at Halloween, but I'll wear the ridiculous plastic spider rings, and plastic pumpkins and the whole nine.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
Definitely!

SW Fall 2017 Part #1

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ - the vanilla bean scrub bar tickles my fancy, as does the bearwalker beer soap

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? I love pretty much all of them, but please no spiders. One of my husbands early gifts to me is a sweet Frankenstein waving and holding a candy bag, and I'm partial to those. I also like the bats, spooky trees, birds.....

9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? I would adore a well made fabric fan, to use and not display. All wood or wood and cloth! Also, I collect the Starbucks mugs that are specific to cities, and I'd love a cell phone charm as I had one from a previous SW round that I adored, and it finally died....something cute, kawaii, sparkly......

How do you feel about nail wraps? I'm actually starting to really like them!!!

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? Oh, I love hand knits!! Thick chunky socks, a long drapy cowl, scarf, washclothes.....as long as the fiber is SOFT, it's fine. Please no 100% acrylic as my skin can't handle it, but a blend is fine

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? Need to think on this one.....

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? And, I also need to think on this one

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? Um....Dita Von Teese, Marilyn Monroe, and someone else fun and flirty! What a great time we would all have, right?

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best. Oh, how I adore Alicia's creations. They are on my faves list on Etsy

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? Absolutely!!! If my witch would like to make me something, we can discuss via email further! I love homemade things!!

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? It's an odd request....but I used to use an eyelash tint - not a mascara. Clinique makes one that I haven't tried. I found Tarte's Tarteist lash paint and love it! I also like It Cosmetics tightlining black primer; it's the bomb for all those little lashes!! I don't really need any other makeup, the stash from my active days is still pretty full and I don't really wear a lot of makeup. Oh! Chanel discontinued their original Glossimers. The new formula is called Rouge Coco Gloss - Moisturizing Glossimer. It's not the same. I like the original. Any color. If you can get your hands on any without spending a fortune, that would totally rock! Testers are fine as well!!! ANY COLOR. I wear these night and day, truly. I'd also love a fun empty cushion foundation case. Mine is a blah white. I know there were really cool Disney ones, and Wonder Woman ones, that I missed.
Oh! I'm taking an adult Ballet Barre class through May.....I'm wearing leggings and baggy tees. Some cool ballet tees would be awesome, I like a junior relaxed 2X or women's XL. A tulle skirt would be fun too, though I'm thick around the middle so I would need it to be pretty large in girth.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? Nope. Sticking to my knitting, reading, baking and cooking

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? I'm not sure? You are absolutely welcome to stalk me and see if you find something you could work with

Do you like poetry? Yes. My absolute favorite is Merrit Malloy, and I don't have any of her works, and would love them.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? Yes to all, though I don't have any repaints. I'd be worried they might get banged up around here. I do have some Funko's on my Amazon list though!

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? Yes. You can check with Miss Twilight, Dixiehellcat, and Skyelric as they can point you to yarn I adore, both costly and affordable ranges

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? Answered in my ?aire

Please provide wishes from the last two updates? Please note, even an 1/2 imp or imp would be much loved!!
--from the Lilith's; The Goddess of Mischief and especially Valuable, Powerful, Deserving
--from the Dog Days - Granite and Papow
--Lunacy - Long Night Moon

Are there any UK things you'd like to get? I like Liberty Fabrics, especially the Tana Lawn; Thorton's Alpine Bars are one of my very favorite candy bars. Can't think of anything else off the top of my head?

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? No, sorry

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
--her Blackthorn HooDoo blend tea in Sun Bright sounds yum
--Health Enchanted candle, any size, and number of them would be awesome

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

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
--I have a ton of polishes, but boy did I fall head over heals for Ava! I really like Pink Mimosa too!!

9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. Yes, and my Etsy should have some great examples of what I like!!

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?

13 Nights of Halloween 2017

Are you okay with homemade food?
Yes. So long as it's not something that is going to go off on the way. Baked goods might be a pass, given that it seems like we are going to have a continuance of hot weather(by which I mean 100+ days), with the addition of humidity . Candies, canned or preserved, dried things, spice mixes, and anything like that should be okay, though-- just nothing that will melt or mold.

If you are okay with decorations, do you have a preference to table-top, wall hanging or window decorations?
I love decorations of all sorts.

How do you feel about stationary and/or papercrafting supplies?
I love them.

How do you feel about kitschy/silly Halloween jewelry?
It's fun. One thing I think I forgot in my questionnaire, though, is I don't have pierced ears. So, as awesome as the Halloween earrings are, those are not for me.

Would you like a Halloween wreath?
I'd love one. I had an absolutely gorgeous one made by a kind forumite, but it had dried gourds on it and it kind of died last year.

What rares are you dying to try???
Pink Moon 2017 and Vanilla Orchid SN? I missed them earlier this year, and would just like to sniff them, really. Other than that, my wishlist is pretty extensive.

Comic books and graphic novels:
are awesome.

Would you like to receive anything related to:

Disney?
Sure!
If so, any favorite characters?
Ariel for favorite princess, and all her awesome aquatic friends. This is not so much characters-- but since NMBC is Disney now, that whole shebang(if I had to pick favorites, it would be Oogie, Lock, Shock, and Barrel; because they have the best songs ).

And to be more specific about Disney: How do you feel about Beauty and the beast?
I loved the animated movie as a kid, have not seen the new live action. Belle would be a close runner up for favorite princess( because she's not a mermaid), along with Jasmine. Plus, books, inventions, and talking crockery are all awesome.

And what about Harry Potter related items?
Harry Potter is awesome. Would especially adore Frank, or other magical creature-centric, anything. Hogwarts House is Gryffindor, last time I checked. Ilvermorny house is Thunderbird. My patronus is(although I don't necessarily agree, I'm definitely not mad about it)... a brown hare. Well, I laughed, anyway. Luna's got a hare, too. So, I'm in good bunny company.

Pokemon? Any favorites?
I like Pokemon! Haven't played anything but Go in a million years, but I do still sort of collect the TCG cards ( because I buy them for treasure box, and sometimes there are doubles that are just too cute ). Pokemon are awesome. Top-of-my-head favorite are:
Dratini, Jigglypuff, Charmander, Mew, Ditto, Shaymin, and Mimikyu. A full favorites list would encompass probably a tenth of all Pokemon released so far, and that would be a bit ridiculous. I just like cute magical creatures with soulful eyes.

Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)?
I hate Hershey's chocolate.Not really into Stephen King books, don't do slasher films, or the Saw franchise, FNaF, and I would rather not have anything made of bone or exoskeleton.

What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap?
I love watercolor, and tiny figurines, but am also a big fan of the written word, imagery and rhyming. I'd love any art that looked old/aged, kind of dark fantasy or Victorian spooky, or seemingly normal images where something is just subtlely off-- especially *old* photos. Think Disneyland Haunted House or the pics in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiars

Bath & Body Works - love them or hate them? If the former, fave product types?
I like them. I don't really go there anymore, so whatever awesome packaging they come out with this year in the form of pockets backs, soap dispensers, or candles would be awesome to see-- and (although probably waaaayy too early in the season) someone told me their fir tree candle is amazing.

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would be interested in?
Sailor Moon gachapon? San-X stuff, yuzu anything, and those seaweed caramels that I will probably never find again.

I'm in The Netherlands. Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in?
Salmiak knotsen, Cassis, Roos Vicee, Potter's droppastilles... if you had access to drabbelkoek, and could send just a tin of those, I would be happy with that for all 13 nights, because it would make my mam's day. My dad might love you forever if you sent a roll of Droste pastilles. From Europe in general, Cadbury's Marvellous Creations with the popping candy and jelly babies (although this is probably the one thing on this list that I *can* actually order from here).

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? if you are on board with that, would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
I love boxes; whatever size you wanted to make.

If you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
Handmade anything is awesome! Fall leaf colors, or watery blues/greens


Nail wraps - yay or nay? Would including a small manicure set to go with them help?
I've never gotten around to trying them, but have seen some totally adorable patterns, and would totally be up to check them out. I don't know if a manicure set would help?

2017 Ketchup for Switch Witch

Hello all Witches. This is my first Switch Witch so I hope I'm doing it right.   These are answers to all the ideas asked in the Switch Witch thread. I hope this doesn't sound too grabby or picky.   I'd love homemade imp and bottle containers or even store bought ones. I am always in need of more storage for bottles and imps.   K beauty: I am low fuss so I really never take time to do masks but I like the Korean BB & CC products & I'd probably use a moisturizer or cleanser. Anything with spf helps. I'm always on the hunt for a primer that can extend the longevity of my foundation and provide effective sunscreen.   New things for me this year are adult coloring books and painting. I'm doing Kon Marie at home as I'm moving to a new apartment at the end of September & I'll probably be redecorating. I removed my acrylic nails so I have been using shellac. I started a new weight management plan with medical supervision and I will be trying to increase my exercise level by committing to walking 4 days a week.   I'm not a Scooby-Doo fan as an adult but I watched the cartoon as a kid. I find stoner Shaggy amusing.   I love Tea, coffee, and chocolate of all kinds but it has to be relatively low or free of refined carbs. I do loose coffee sometimes but like k-cups for the convenience.   I use loose + bag Tea and love trying new kinds. I dislike Green, Rooibos, and jasmine tea; but I like white, black, puerh, and oolong. I can always use Tea gadgets. I have a nice ceramic kettle but like mugs with the built-in diffuser baskets and I can always use more tea ball diffusers. I also like Yerba mate and have always wanted one of those gourd things to drink it. I would like to try the criobru chocolate drink things.   I like stationary, pens, paper, stickers, notepads and such stuff. I especially like gel pens. I use acrylic paint, oil pastels, and water color paints. I always need canvas but those aren't easy or cheap to ship. I need a drawing book.   LUSH: love the products but don't use bar soap or bath bombs. I enjoy shower gel, massage bars, moisturizer and hair or skin care things: I have sensitive skin. From the update I'd most like the rose lip balm or scrub and Lord of Misrule shower gel. I'd love for my Witch to surprise me.   Halloween turtle t-shirt are very cute but will they fit me? I need a 18 to 22 women's or XXL depending on the brand. Looking again, the 2x could perhaps me!? I like the Candy Corn Bat design, Spooky kitties, and Howl at the Moon.   Indie make up: cute but I prefer MAC almost exclusively. I'm a MAC whore. OCC, UD, KVD occasionally. Lime Crime or Sugarpill maybe.   Wreaths: not sure if I want one. I can't display at work and it would probably be stolen at my apartment complex.   Nui Cobalt jewelry is beautiful, I love the aesthetic, however, I rarely wear jewelry except rings or scent lockets. Favorite gemstone details below...   I really like almost everything in the Elements and Artifacts shop too.   Cocoa Pink: I like designer dupes, fruity, pumpkin, and foody scents. I can use hair conditioning stuff like glissade or ends with benefits, oil fragrance samples too. I like to be surprised by my Witch for scent choices.   Future Primitive? My Witch can surprise me. I like anything but don't use bar soap. I've not tried anything but wax tarts.   ILPN Polish: maybe? I do like OPI and other traditional brands like Butter London, ORLY, China Glaze and of course the Post.   I have not tried much Haus of Gloi but I like Marshmallows all the things and would like to try the Ghost Puffs scent. Both of the Fall candles look yummy. I am leery of the black musk things. Any of the Candy Bowl or Fall scents would be lovely to try.   Moonalisa: I like what I have tried. I would most likely be interested in the lotions, hair products, 4 in 1, & lip butters. All of her gourmand stuff sounds nice. I avoid cinnamon, bonfire, and patchouli. Anything like funnel cakes, caramel apples, caramel corn would be loved.   BloodDrop has quite a few scents that I'd enjoy, The Autumn collection and The Parliament of Owls especially. I love her creations, gourmand and atmospheric especially. She does Spooky and fruity well.   Nocturne Alchemy: Witchypoo looks intriguing. Other scents I'd like to try are Pumpkin Library 6,9, 10, 12, and 14, Halcyon Bat, Vampire Vanilla Bat, Black Cherry Muscadine, Black Cat, Halloween 2017.   I am avoiding asking for specific products for most of these OCYL brands as I'd like my Witch to surprise me but my favorite notes are in my profile and in short are cake, honey, ginger, clove, ambergris, amber, vanilla, tobacco, stone Fruits, resins, spicy sweet and musky. I avoid cinnamon in skin products. Also with Halloween things, I like Pumpkin Spice but I dislike "allspice."   From Japan: I like Hello Kitty and Domo, ♡ anything Maneki Neko. Bento boxes. Stationary. Hime Gyaru.   From UK? Cadbury all the things. Tea. Clotted cream?   Donations in my name are lovely. My interests include ACLU, Harvey relief, your local animal shelter, SPCA, or wildlife foundations, local ones, esp for wolves. Also, any local plant a tree groups. Support for domestic violence victims is a priority too. More specific charities listed below in my SW questionnaire.   Hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? Knitting, crochet, cross stitch, origami. I need to hone my drawing skills.   Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? Something general would be great such as for healing, protection, uplifting my mood, celebrating the sabbats, or remembering ancestors. I could definitely use a honey jar for money drawing if my Witch is magically inclined.   Do you like poetry? Yes! My favorite authors include Frost, Poe, Dickinson, Blake, Shelley, Yeats, & Keats but I am open to others.   Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? Yes to all! I don't have any but ♡ MLP.   Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? I don't knit or crochet. Maybe some day I'll have time to learn.   Nail wraps? I am too clumsy to do my own. I wish I could because the Halloween ones are dope!   Something hand knit, what type of item would you like? What color(s)? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? Wool is scratchy but I love the alpaca stuff, otherwise I'm not sensitive to fibers. I'd love hand knit anything! Cowl, hat, scarf, household linens. I trust that my Witch will pick something lovely-I love Autumnal & Earthly colors and pink. My favorite color is chartreuse.   If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? Arya from A Song of Ice and Fire because she's the baddest ass I can think of and I love her redemption arc.   If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? Before the dawn of man so I could see the planet unspoiled.   If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? Freud, Tesla, Marie Antoinette   Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? YES! Accessories like scarves but I also like knitted dish towels, tea cozies, storage purses etc. would be loved. I've wanted one of those pink pussy ears caps/hats since the infamous day in November. I would also use socks, leg warmers, you name it.   Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? I like crazy eyelashes and funky lipstick colors. I'd wear goofy ears, head adornments, glasses. Think tacky.   Soapmakerlittleseedfarm.com: It all looks lovely to me, I have no need for beard oil and don't use bar soap. My Witch can guess what I would like.   What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? No clowns, just kidding. I like it all. Cute preferred to gory. I like wolves, owls, bats, pumpkins, Jack o'lanterns, vampires, werewolves, zombies, leaves, big Harvest moons, wolves, corvids, black Kitty cats, Sugar Skulls, skeletons, anatomically correct Hearts, brains. I especially like the Victorian Gothic and antique designs like the Post cards that the Lab included with orders.   Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? Yes, but Low carb options if possible...I let myself have an occasional treat if that helps my Witch.   Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? Perhaps. I am without a doubt a fidgety person.   Zentangle art? Art is in the eye of the beholder. If my Witch deems it art, I'm in. I'd be tickled to try it.   Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? Yes please to all except maybe not ribbons.   What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams, candy? Yes to all my Witch likes.   Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? Yes. Makeup or horror book themed, Japanese goodies would be welcome.   Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? Yes all the things. Love me some funky lipstick. Esp. Deep, Forest green. I've wanted one like Melt Blow but not so matte and hard to apply. The new MAC metallic line really amazed me. KVD has interesting options.   How do you like to listen to music? CD and Spotify. I have Luddite tendencies if you hadn't noticed.   Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book? I prefer real books (Luddite) & I'd love to be surprised by a Gothic Horror classic. I will also update my Amazon list:)   Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? I like candles best and Halloween theme candle accessories and holders. I'm curious about incense burner things but they look spendy. I would welcome incense and wax tarts as well as gadgets to use them.   Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? I'm a painter and a colorer. Yes, see above answers.   Home made hair fall? If this is what I think it is, I'd try it and I could really get into it.   Favorite Halloween movies? I don't have any particular one that I re-watch yearly but some of the ones I have enjoyed most: Young Frankenstein, Dawn of the Dead, Salom's Lot, Nightmare on Elm Street, After Dark, Lost Boys, Interview with a Vampire, Edward Scissor Hands, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Sleepy Hollow, Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Evil Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Hell Raiser, Jeepers Creepers, Little Shop of Horrors, Fright Night, Reanimator, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Crimson Peak and Only Lovers Left Alive of course. Rocky Horror Picture Show. Simpson Halloween special.
Not sure how I feel about merchandise...if it's cute rather than gory, kitsch or humorous, then yes.   How do you feel about the following (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet & Chevron = cute, Lacy and fuzzy ♡ Long: I'd trip over it, but cute. Leafy!: Cutest!♡♡♡   Like beer? I like beer but I am limiting carbs at the moment, I'm into stout and pale ale. My favorite is MaredSous but good luck finding it. I'm more into hard cider. I'm punkin beer curious.   Like booze? Bourbon, rum, tequila, in that order. OK it's a 3way tie for 1st place. Not a fan of scotch. Momma has a sweet toof.   Like Wine? Merlot is what I know best and like but I am always willing to be educated by those with more knowledge and experience.   Comics and graphic novels: I don't have many, I'd be down for Gaiman, Batman stuff, Gothic & dystopian themes.   Disney? Previously I'd have said no, but they aren't doing too badly with Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean. I like the original Bambi. Not a fan of Disney princesses or Mickey Mouse and friends. I'm more of an Itchy and Scratchy person. Or, Buggs Bunny! He's the kind of wise ass I like. And I fucking love the Simpsons, Calvin and Hobbs, & Gary Larson anything.   And what about Harry Potter related items? Sadly I have no opinion. I never read the books and refuse to see the movies until after reading the books.   Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things. Call me a hater, but nothing that has to do with any of the Kardashians. Nothing religious, nothing to do with the Republican party, or the Donald. I dislike raw onion immensely. I strongly dislike The DaVinci Code because I feel it's a plagiarized version of Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco.   What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive? Visual art, original or I also enjoy images of classic painting on a cigarette/imp case, coffee mug, post cards, & small print to hang or desktop display. I especially like the Impressionist movement but who doesn't? I also like abstract like Dali, Picasso, Munch, Kandinski, Mondrian. I also like music, sculpture, crafty things like Cross knit designs, decorative pillows, etc.   Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in? Can you mail me a hot dude that looks like a Viking? Bonus points if he looks like Val Kilmer or Alexander Skarsgard!!!   I am not a gamer but I am open to learning new things. I'm sort of scared to get into games because I have a tendency to obsess and it would be a rabbit hole I'd probably never climb out of.   I have no pets or young humans to spoil.   I love the Halloween banner thingies on the etsy link. To be honest I don't decorate my home for Halloween because my partner is unnerved by most scary things & I don't receive trick or treaters but I would dress up my desk or work space with cute, small sized decorative items to celebrate the season.   I've updated my wish list, link in my signature, of goodies I'd love from the Lab and Post updates. I'll include OCYL. Includes rares and recent updates.   I'll have to do a search for goodies I think I'd like from Trader Joe's. Low carb snacks like beef jerkey, seeds, and nuts would be welcome as would Sugar free Sweets, tea, coffee, and such. That Peruvian corn looks like the kind of food crack I like. I am into savory and crunchy.   Do you have use for warm handknitted scarf, hat and/or mittens?
Asked & answered above. In short, yes yes yes.   Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? I suck at baking and I'm overrun with spices but a cute spice rack would help me organize and I like all manner of gadgets to facilitate making tea, coffee, cocktails, etc. I'm always into cups and glassware esp with cute themes. And of course kitchen towels, oven mits, salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders, tea cozies.   Beach-themed stuff from Ocean City MD? I collect seashells, sand in a bottle, sandollars, beach glass, coral, you get my "drift" hardy har har.   If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? I like rings or pendants, especially scent lockets. I really don't wear bracelets or other jewelry. I tend to go with small & dainty.   Any love of pirates or SCA? Yes to pirates no idea on the latter.   Is there anything you would like from Disney World? No thank you.   Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? Never read or watched.   How do you feel about chokers? I like but I have a big neck 15 inches. I rarely wear jewelry except rings or scent lockets.   Gemstones I like: opal, amethyst, Libyan Desert Glass, Widmanstatten meteorite, tektite, ammolite, jade, amber, moldavite, garnet, pearls, fossilized wood, rose quartz, smoky quartz, Moonstone, chatoyant, labradorite, turquoise, Obsidian, &Mother of pearl. I like tumbled stones and worry stones and paperweights.   What do I most want in my package? Something personal like a hand made card, poem, something baked or knitted. Anything original that I could not buy for myself. Of course I trust that my Witch will pick something that will make me happy. Even if it isn't homemade but is cute or kooky I will like it.   I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? Chocolate? Creme de Marrons? Lavender everything except bar soap. Salted caramels? Anything from Louis Vuitton or Hermes?   are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? I like Tarot, runes, and astrology and would enjoy books or cards or handmade runes.   World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? Yes   Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? I love anything from TAL.   Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? Not interested in bar soap because of sensitive skin. The soy candles look nice.   Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm.

Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc? I need to limit my sweet toof and carb intake but I really like See's candy. If you find any Sugar free Sweets I'd be very grateful.   Are any witchees into coloring books?

I can't think of anything specific.   Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)   If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. Roccoco or Spanish Colonial. Yes, I realized these are widely divergent.   Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? No, thanks.   BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) Something like critters, yes but not so much dolls. I like animals like beanie babies.   It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Yes...Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? Preferably no wool, please, and I wear anything less than knee high but more than anklets. I have fat calves.   Would you be open to previously-loved books?

I like antibacterial soap from BBW and candles primarily.   What kind of crystals would you like?
Rose or smoky quartz and amethyst are my favorite crystals.   Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? Both loved, pumpkin is my favorite.   What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? Cookies are off my menu unless you can make them without carbs. I love Shortbread covered in powdered Sugar and nuts.   Could you use muscle rub? I would probably try some as I have a dodgy knee, but maybe a small bit due to my sensitive skin.   Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur? This sounds delicious.   Want some honey from the bees on our property? I love local Honey but I have a supplier.   Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. Yes.   How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. I would enjoy these or something similar.   Let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" yes.   Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases? I love dice bags for carrying imps and I'd use pillowcases, cosmetic bags, or anytype of tote or carrying sack   9/22/17   Would my witchee like this to warm up? I love cider. I'm low carbing it right now but I still sneak an occasional treat   do you like to take baths? I love baths, but I rarely have time to soak so I usually shower. I use bath oils though as an in-shower moisturizer. I rarely use fizzes or bubble bath, bombs etc   What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these? I have a Galaxy 6 Android and I'd love a case, especially a water proof one, but they're spendy!   Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? Don't really use day planner but I've been considering trying out a bullet journal.   If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? I have to think about what I don't like. I gravitate towards cute, animals, leaves, abstract/geometrical, cartoons.

Switch witch 2017

dear witch,

i've been skipping or being vague on questions that i think are already answered by the questionnaire, or where i don't want to get so specific as to basically create a laundry list of exact items i want. some questions have been actual repeats from the questionnaire, while others are new or altered questions but my answer would be redundant from things i said in the questionnaire. and in questions about whether i want something from a certain website, i tend to either skip those or say "yes" or "no," because i would rather have you enjoy exploring, making choices, getting things that seem "me" but also speak to you personally, etc rather than just giving you list after list of every item i want from every website. for me a lot of the magic comes from totally surprising my witchee, as well as introducing her to things i love based on a common interest we share, and i don't want my witch to be pigeonholed.

Random thoughts: i super want this: https://www.lvnea.com/collections/rituals-kit/products/autumnal-equinox-feu-sacre-limited-edition-seasonal-box and also would just love some samples from Lvnea.
i also love Nest's seasonal candles, which I forgot to mention in my original candle answer. they come in a ton of sizes at different price points and can be found on their own site, Sephora, Amazon, etc. as far as seasonals i love the scents Holiday and Hearth, and am so curious to try the Pumpkin Chai one
this used to be my favorite t shirt, but i lost it years ago. even though i'm normally XS/S, i'm sure the medium would work fine for a t shirt: https://www.wolfgangs.com/led-zeppelin/clothing/womens-t-shirt/OCS770723-B.htmli also like the grey (also Zeppelin) one with the avocado on it from the same site.
Speaking of sizes, I don't remember answering that, other than for jewelry - i copy and pasted a lot of my questionnaire from past years, so i might have missed that it was in there, but just in case. i'm 5'2", 32-26-36, size 5.5 shoe (sometimes 6, pretty much never 5), size XS/S or 0/2 depending on the cut and fabric of a thing
these are so cute: https://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/halloween-skull-double-old-fashioned-glasses/?pkey=cbar-glasses-old-fashioneds&irgwc=1&cm_cat=ShopStyle%20Inc.&cm_ven=AfShopPromo&bnrid=3917500&cm_ite=Std&cm_pla=IR
i would love this notebook duo in Rorsarch or Vintage Blossoms! i like Rorsarch a little more, because the little "notes" is more subtle than the giant "notebook" design. https://petitvour.com/products/notebook-set
You know what else I just thought of, witch? Gourmet/fancy vegetarian marshmallows. I always get a little rush of excitement when I see fancy, handmade, organic, fine vanilla, whatevs et al, marshmallows, but they usually contain gelatin. If you did come across some really nice looking vegetarian ones, and wanted to pair them with some sort of fancy dark drinking chocolate to keep me company as I enter my first dark Seattle winter, they would be put to very good use! Other things that pair nicely with fancy dark drinking chocolates include: Rumchata.
oh, witch, in case you've been trying to find a way to justify the shipping to get yourself something from https://baba-store.com/, please know that i love pretty much everything they do, including the many items at the lower price points (little tarot bags, viscose wraps, mini messengers, any other bags that are on the less expensive end....) Alice, Poe, Russian fairytales, art nouveau, you name it!

Amazon and etsy wishlists: http://a.co/55enkbtwitch, this is my main amazon wishlist, but hopefully it will have an option to see my others, because i have ten or so different category ones. please don't get me any clothes or shoes from this wish list, because the sizes and colors don't always show up correctly in the wishlist, so those are just there as a reminder to myself since i know which size/color combos.
on etsy, only this one (the one called wish list) is my wish list. my other lists are gifts for other people and things like that: https://www.etsy.com/people/abrodite/favorites/wish-list?ref=pr_faveitems_list_name
i also have a wishlist at Petit Vour, but like Amazon, the color choices don't translate correctly to the wish list, so i would only want items that don't come in different color (or scent) options: https://www.petitvour.com/apps/wishlist/
and there are a LOT of companies, individually linked items, and other stuff that i would really love mentioned throughout this entry and my questionnaire, so please don't feel like you have to stick to wish lists! <3
Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
i want every type of honey, pollen, propolis, and other bee goodies i can get my hands on. i'm always up for new hot sauces, but with fairly traditional flavor palettes - like, nothing very sweet or intentionally avant garde like "blueberry habanero."
Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com
Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)?
if they're cruelty free, i'll happily try stuff from either/both of these brands.
How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff? I prefer My Melody

Would you like to get some favorite recipes? Sure!

Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list Sure - lotion or bath products, but not perfume. Ghost puffs, the corn one, or almost anything that isn't super dirty smelling.

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs? as far as top three that i don't already have bottles of - Bread and Butterfly, The Great Red Dragon Woman something something William Blake (see wishlist in my signature for the real name), and La Fee Verte. Preciouses that are running dangerously low and MUST be somehow replenished: Fairy Market and Lullaby.

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store sure - functional moreso than prints, because i have so much wall art, but i would find a place for a new print as well - Danse Macabre, Spell of Ravensong, Starman, Flapper

BPAL current LEs: Nothing is Unexpected, Nothing is Foresworn × 1 Over-Acuteness of the Senses × 1 Singularly At Ease × 1 The Dead Hour of the Night × 1 Samhain 2017 × 1
Those are the ones I will buy from The Lab if I don't get them during SW, but since Nothing is Unexpected will be coming down before the Weenies, I might buy just that one to be safe if I haven't received indication not to in the next few days. It comes down in October.
I am also happy with half bottles, so if you wanted any of these scents for yourself and want to split them, I don't mind at all! Preferably in the original bottle, but at least in a 5 ml bottle, because I get overwhelmed by keeping track of little decants.
I am also really interested in trying all the dead leaves (except the candy corn one), and Pumpkin Spaces of Snake Oil and Perversion, but for all of those I would want just one decant, unless you're getting yourself the violet dead leaves scent, in which case I would love to receive a partial of it.

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? sure
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? i don't need stationary, but other office supplies are nice, and as far as style, same as all my other answers
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads? maybe?

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson yes, she's one of my favorites

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need? i like them and i use them as house decor and for random art, but i don't collect them in a "gotta catch 'em all" or "cataloging what i have and don't have" sense

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ yes, i love it

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? rabbits, foxes, cats, snakes, faeries, elves, mermaids, witches, ravens

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!) no thanks, but i might end up going to it

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment? i'm not an active zero waste practitioner, but i always try to make my life more green, so if you find some kind of cool thing to encourage this, i'm game!

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? no thank you

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? both

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? nutella-stuffed chocolate chip, shortbread in pretty much any form, pumpkin drops with cream cheese icing, something involving toffee...

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.) sure!

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

Want some honey from the bees on our property? 100% yes

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. yes. my flavor preference of these, in order, would be strawberry rhubarb, rose petal, blackberry, cherry, peach.

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. tbh this sounds weird, but i love habaneros, my husband loves jalapenos, and we both love garllic, so we would definitely have fun trying them!

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

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

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm hmm, i don't think

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

Are any witchees into coloring books? it's not a hobby of mine, but i would really love one of the ones Faerie Magazine sells on their website. i got my brother one of those for Chanukkah and it looked wonderful.

If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household? well, there are two of us, but we generally get more than two place settings of a given thing, so we can use them with guests... we also have plenty of dishes, so i would only want this if it's something truly fantastic/perfect for me. the flatware idea sounds cool, though - we just have one regular, boring set of flatware. and a table runner and/or placemats and napkins could make our table more festive while paired with dishes we already own!

Do you like Broadway shows/music? i love Broadway, but I don't need any merch or CDs

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there? Apple III - and really if you get yourself any BPAL there and wanted to just decant me a tester, almost all of them sound appealing

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)? definitely, i'm all about fair trade sustainable things

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items. Mercado Global, Reformation, Soko Jewelry (not related to Soko Glam)

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com there's always stuff on there that appeals to me

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? I own one and never remember to use it

Would my witchee be interested in something like[a striped knitted doll]? nothx

Socks: any particular style or fiber preference? natural fibers that feel good and aren't so thick as to change your shoe size. favorite lengths are ankle, boot, and knee.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? of course - but if it's BPTP bath oil, please make sure it hasn't gone off

So what are your favorite fandoms? Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass (but not the Tim Burton messes), GoT, LotR, Harry Potter, several comics (Sandman, Saga, Monstress, Rat Queens)...i also like Name of the Wind, Elder Scrolls, various historical figures and periods...
some general thoughts on merch are, as i've said before i like things that are functional rather than toys, dolls, random centerpieces, etc. but also i really like merch that's subtle. like a drinking vessel, shirt, etc. that has the name of a fictional business establishment on it or the sigil of a fictional house (but not the name or slogan) or something, where the name of the actual fandom is either not present or really small. (speaking of shirts, i could probably use a hoodie, since i'm moving back to the north and my only hoodie is yellow) and i strongly prefer merch that's officially licensed.
--this Elder Scrolls hoodie sums up everything i love in merch, and also just looks like a really nice hoodie: https://store.bethsoft.com/brands/the-elder-scrolls/ladies-dark-brotherhood-angl-hoodie
--and tbh i would also totally wear this one even though i am totally a stormcloak and not a legionnaire: https://store.bethsoft.com/apparel/womens/hoodies/ladies-long-imperial-dragon-symbol-cowl-hoodie
--there's a lot of great looking, subtle merch on https://thetinkerspacks.com/ which also reminds me i'm totally down with fictional games (like a game that exists in a fictional world and has now also been made real), or games/puzzles of a fandom i like.
--and now this answer is getting totally off topic, but THAT reminds me i also play Cards Against Humanity and Magic the Gathering, and could always use new expansions.

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

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? i do Tarot and there are always decks i'm lusting after. i have two sets of runes already and haven't gotten good enough at them to necessarily want more at the moment, but if you saw a set that seemed to scream out for me, i would love it.

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? sure! especially something like a personalized astrological forecast for the year ahead.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? if you wanted to send something around early-mid October to bless and/or cleanse my new home, it would be appreciated.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? i'm not big on bar soaps. a little sample or two tossed into a package would be nice, but i definitely don;t need a bunch of full sized ones or anything like that.

Favorite gemstones? emerald, all black stones, labradorite, moonstone, opal, anything sort of color-shifting and magical looking

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? i feel like this is in the questionnaire? just in case, a little bit of each. i've been coveting the Teardrop Choker from Soko and i wear a delicate ouroboros ring most days (plus my wedding bands), but i also often wear a dagger ring, a rattlesnake spine ring, big dangly earrings, and sometimes bracelets with precious gems. i'm kind of all over the place.

Any love of pirates or SCA? pirates 100%. SCA seems up my alley, although i'm not currently involved. i love cosplay of all sorts.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? probably, but i don't know specifically

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? Ravenclaw

How do you feel about chokers? i'm a 90s bitch. so, yes. love them.

Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type? thanks, but it isn't really my style.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not[...]? i do live near them!

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? i love to cook and bake, and am always interested in trying new spices, fancy salts, herbs, etc.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? sure!

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? two kitties and a pupper, as detailed in the questionnaire. pupper loves squeaky toys, and i love when they're the kind that's hard for her to gut - brands like Tuff or Tuffy or something. the cats could use a laser pointer. all of the fur babies love crunchy treats, as long as they're natural, organic, meat-based, etc.

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things) Yes, but i don't want to risk hoping a witch will get them for me, so i'm probably going to get them myself - that said, if this is something my witch specifically wants to do, please send me an ecard or message through a ninja or something and i'll update this question!

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? i have a Steam wishlist. i'm currently playing Ori and the Blind Forest and Civ 6. i'm not much into merch.

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? no, thank you

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? sours, as in the Belgian style that occurs through fermentation methods, rather than the American trend of putting lemons, white wine, and other weird things in beers to make them sour. also kolsches, lagers, non-hoppy ales, stouts.

Like booze? What kinds? basically all of it. i love scotch the most, but also tequila, rum, and gin - but i like good quality stuff. it doesn't have to be expensive - my favorite vodka is Tito's, and one of my favorite scotches is Glengrant 10 - but just, good. usually not the most well-known brands, but they also don't have to be obscure or anything. i love Auchentoshan and Aberlour scotches, The Botanist gin, Kah and Calle 23 tequilas (and Don Julio, but that is faaancy), Illegal and Del Maguey mezcals, and have recently started exploring aged rums. these brands are all just examples - i love to try new ones.

Like Wine? What kinds? many kinds. nothing too sweet.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? sure!

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ pretty much any of it except the bar soaps and baby stuff

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? i don't like spiders or anything cheesy/kitschy. i do like cats, witches, and moons.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? i think this has been covered, but i'll add yes to local or unusual sources

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? no thanks

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? no thanks

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? yes to all. i have long but fine hair, so nothing that requires a gloriously thick mane to stay in place, but otherwise, yes to all.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? always all the honey forever! also jams, and maybe candy.

Are you interested in any subscription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? i stopped subscribing to Petit Vour's box because i couldn't justify the cost right now, but it's not actually expensive and i loved it, so i would love a subscription to that.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? no thanks

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

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book? if a book is really long i prefer to read it on Kindle, for transportability purposes. I also do audiobooks a lot, and since i'm setting out on a 35-hour drive next week, i will be in great need of those. i have an audible account - argverret@gmail.com - i'm not sure if it's possible to do gift cards, credits, etc. for someone that way, but if it is and you would like to, that would be lovely. physical books are great for shorter books, collections, anything illustrated, anything rare/special/first/limited edition. sure, a classic horror book would be great. i love to read that sort of thing in October.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders? candles, especially from Burke and Hare Co., DL & Co, Black Phoenix Trading Post. i also love candles that come in tea glasses, little antique glasses, etc. - basically candles that i can repurpose after use. I have a plug-in wax melter, and I like it a lot, but it's mellow enough that the wax tarts kind of last literally forever, to the point where it's hard to change scents. it would be nice to have an alternative one that burns through the waxes at a pace that lets me change scents after a while without having to melt the whole thing and dump it while still melted. i do like incense, but i'm fairly picky about it. i could use some charcoal disks, or a burner for non-stick incense.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? none that I can think of at the moment, especially since i'm mid-move.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? a custom repaint of an old school My Little Pony would be pretty sweet, but generally speaking i try to avoid toys because i'm clutter-phobic and they don't serve a function

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? Sure!

Please provide wishes from the last two updates? Nothing is Unexpected, Nothing is Forsworn perfume, Pickle hair gloss, and about half of the Fatherhood Liliths (i forget which ones, but i definitely named them elsewhere on the forum). frankly, i love to support BPAL/BPTP directly so i almost always buy from updates, so if you do plan to get me anything, it might be a good idea to tip me off so i don't double buy

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? A cowl would be nice, or a floppy hat. Please, no gloves, scarves, or fitted hats - I have too many.

- would you use knitted washcloths? probably? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? sometimes wool makes me itchy, and i like to pretend I'm allergic to polyester.

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? Everything, pretty much.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? I think I touched upon this in the questionnaire. A dress or infinity scarf would probably be my most treasured of these options.

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? LOTS of stuff. Specifics? Really good matcha, any other green teas you love, matcha flavored candies of basically any kind, Pocky in any flavors that don't get imported to the US, basically any kind of treats, maybe some Sailor Scout stuff (Mars is my favorite, but Jupiter is my cosplay because I have long brown hair and green eyes), Miyazaki related stuff... i guess you can't mail me sushi, so maybe that's all as far as specifics....oh, actually also mythological art, particularly related to kitsune-tsuki or tsukimono-suji! and maybe some cat related stuff? a parasol? any kind of crazy gadgets that the US won't have for several years but aren't crazily expensive in Japan?

How do you feel about nail wraps? No, thank you.
Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
i can't think of any off the top of my head, but i'll let you know if i edit this answer later on

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
sure! basically anything related to prosperity/wealth/work, health (physical, emotional, or spiritual), spiritual/magical connections/boosters/etc, clarity, cleansing/jinx removing...i guess almost anything except love spells

Do you like poetry?
as long as it isn't Vogon or a result of skáldfífla hlutr.

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
i would love to try this brand, which i've been curious about for years. pretty much anything except perfume or bar soap.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
could you kidnap my best friend and mail her to me? umm, a cheese and onion pasty, if you could make that happen!

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? i do like podcasts, but do not want any merch. my favorites, in case you still want to know even though i don't want merch, are Cast of Thrones, TANIS, The Dirty Bits, The History Chicks, Stuff You Missed in History, Down at the Crossroads

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? yes, always, love Forest and her stuff.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)? very much so! also Burke and Hare candles.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? these look beautiful, but i can barely remember to use the nail polishes i already have.

Do you enjoy stationery? cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. not stickers, but the rest, yes.

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? no, thank you.
- Or Haus of Gloi? probbbbably not? maaaaybe? i'm not sure. i haven't been impressed by their scents in the past, but i remember liking the texture of their pumpkin butter lotion or something like that.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? yes, if it's more on the beautiful, classical, gothic-inspired end of the spectrum, or very simple and fall-like, rather than anything super hokey.

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like? no Lush.

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? i realllly enjoyed her stuff the one time i bought it, but i haven't bought anything since because she always seems to have shipping problems, stock problems, etc. that make it too much of a hassle. receiving her stuff as a surprise, on the other hand, would be very nice. i liked the bubble baths, and would be very interested in trying her candles, sprayable hair shine, bath salt soaks, carpet fresh, cocoa cream or any lotion really, ghostly misters, milk bath, scrubs.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground? whole beans
- Flavor and roast preferences? unflavored, medium roast, notes more along the lines of chocolate and berries rather than citrusy
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? black, green, white, oolong, rooibos, herbal - i can't really think of a base i don't like in some form. i can always do with more genmaicha or matcha, and i looove herbal teas that are caffeine-free but contain other stimulant/focus herbs. the gingko clarity from Yogi is a great example.
- Loose leaf or tea bags? both/either
- Anything specific you don't like? fruity teas aren't usually my favorite. there was a Teavana called Strawberry Slender Pu-erh that i adored, though. but for the most part if i'm in the mood for tea, i'm either seeking the simple, natural tea flavor, or the effect of a certain herb, or a delicious blend of herbs and spices. some of my favorite teas (other than matchas and genmaichas) are moroccan mint (no particular brand), Elevenses from Adagio, Honey Lavender Stress Relief from Yogi, and Christmas in Paris from Stash.
- Are you in need of any gadgetry? one of those time-turners Hermione has in The Prisoner of Azkaban would be great! i could use a new tea ball or two, and/or one of those things that looks like a little pitcher, you brew your loose tea in it, and then you set it on top of your mug and it drains in

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
i would feel great about it, and would make use of any of of those sizes.

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
- What are your faves if you are?
- If you aren't would you like to try something?
no, thank you.

What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever...
digital drawing, mead making

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
positive, but not interested in any Scooby swag

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
as long as it's cruelty free, doesn't make intentional dupes of other brands' products, and doesn't make unlicensed use of other people's copyrighted materials

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
yes, i would.

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1
some of these are super cute, but the t-shirts i already own don't get enough use. i could use a long sleeved tee or two, though, so if BPTP comes out with any this season, that would be on my list!

2017 13 Nights of Halloween Notes and Queries

Updated as of 9/12 am:


Are you ok with homemade food?
Absolutely all the food (within the very broad limits of my questionnaire). I'll note that while I am intolerant of dill in most things, I do love me some pickles.

If you are ok with decorations, do you have a preference for table-top, wall hanging, or window decorations?
Tabletop or window. I don't really have wall space.

How do you feel about stationary and/or papercrafting supplies?
Not so much? I have a lot of random stationary bits and am honestly not even sure what papercrafting supplies consist of.

How do you feel about kitschy/silly Halloween jewelry?
Oh good gracious yes. ALL of the Halloween jewelry. Except zombies. Not really into zombies.

Would you like a Halloween wreath?
Absolutely, those are gorgeous.

What rares are you dying to try???
Most of my super-rare desires are also super old and in my wishlist, which I promise to make a concerted effort to update ASAP.

Do you like comic books and/or graphic novels?
I do! Most of what I have is in my goodreads, with the exception of a few things I've gotten recently. Another thing I should update. I would be particularly interested in picking up where I left off with Fables (I've read through Vol 13), or getting more LumberJanes (I've read the first vol). Oh and all of Bitch Planet.

Would you like to receive anything related to:

Disney?
Maybe if it's really super cool. My Disney fandoms tend to be ancillary - Nightmare Before Christmas, Star Wars, Muppets, some Marvel.

If so, any favorite characters?
Most anything related to the above, especially female characters and Droids for SW, Kermit for Muppets. In terms of Disney generally, the Angelina Joile Malificent, I guess. My daughter would love anything Moana.

And to be more specific about Disney: How do you feel about Beauty and the beast?
Belle was my favorite until I got old enough to look critically at the story. I have a vague interest in seeing the new one, but not burning.

And what about Harry Potter related items?
RAVENCLAW FOREVER. I mean, yes. Absolutely. If I had to pick one fandom to end all fandoms, HP is mine.

Pokemon? Any favorites?
My fave are the bats - I haven't opened Go in ages though and cannot remember their names. My daughter would love HootHoot or Snivy stuff.

Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)?
I absolutely do not do perfume oil outside of BPAL. I can find uses for candy corn, so long as I open it early enough in the swap (one of the things I make for my kid's school Harvest Fest bake sale are bags of popcorn with candy corn mixed in. Easy, cheap and they go like hot cakes. Although the janitors probably loathe me.) In general, I really do not need any more candles or other home scenty things.

What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap?
I would definitely be up for Halloweenie spooky things. And I always appreciate any sort of yarncraft because I just cannot get the hang of it.

Bath & Body Works - love them or hate them? If the former, fave product types?
I do like BBW shower gels and lotions, mostly, and their foaming hand soap. I probably have more of the first two than I could ever use and just placed an order, though.

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would be interested in?
Not anything specific, but I do love the variety of kit kat and other chocolate flavors you have available.

Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in?
I love your licorice! And stropwaffles (which I probably just butchered), and of course, chocolate. <3

how would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? if you are on board with that, would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
I have a large cabinet that I keep things in and a few boxes as well, so I'm probably all set.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
Handwarmers or a scarf would probably get the most use, but I'd love just about anything. For outerwear, neutrals like black or gray would probably be best. Handwarmers could be jewel tones of about any stripe, but I already have a couple of purple pair, so probably not that.

Nail wraps - yay or nay? Would including a small manicure set to go with them help?
I would be all over a manicure set. The one I carry in my purse has seen better days. I would be interested in Halloweenie nail wraps as long as I opened them early enough for our party on the 28th.

Do you want wax melts?
No thank you. (Also, in case I didn't make it abundantly clear, ABSOLUTELY NO incense.)

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? Everything. That's an answer, right? In all seriousness, I adore Japan and cultural items such as kokeshi dolls, masks, daruma dolls, nice washi paper, sour plum tea, matcha/green tea anything, traditional snacks, etc. You name it, I'll probably like it.

How do you feel about nail wraps? I love them, especially lacy, gothic-inspired or anything really geeky like Star Trek.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? A batty shawl or one that looks like skulls in black.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? Oh, I'd love to be Doctor Donna (before she's overloaded and must be wiped). She gets to explore the cosmos, gains Doctor-like abilities.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? The U.K. in the 80s. Fashion and music were iconic, the scenes were booming, and it wouldn't be too much of a shock in terms of adjustments.

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? In real life, I'd love for my best friends (on both coasts) and my mother to all attend in one spot.

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best. I like the Beekeeper necklaces.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? OMG, yes! I would love a dress or skirt or something that is my witch's specialty.

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? Please! Masks, horns (unicorn, satyr, demon), feather ruffs or collars, anything along those lines would be amazing. Also, I'm down for crazy and fun fake lashes.

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? Black cats, bats, spider webs, grave yards, ravens, and especially haunted castles and mansions. I'm not too fond of goofy Halloween imagery like skeletons with googly eyes and green-skinned witches. As far as the style, think haunted Victorian or elegantly Gothic.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? Yes, but in limited quantities. I love black licorice anything, candy corn (I know), dark chocolate, and yes, I adore unusual candies.

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? Dear lord, no.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? Worbla, craft foam, a dremel, clear matte and gloss acrylic paints.

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? BioShock and Hearthstone. I don't have a wishlist right now since it's the school year and I purposely limit my gaming to next to nothing so I can get all those essays back in time.

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)?
Leafy!
Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? I'm like them in passing, but it's mostly pales. My husband loves regional and strange combinations.

Like booze? What kinds? Sake! Absinthe!

Like Wine? What kinds? Can't do them even though I loved them. Nitrates and Sulfates give me massive migraines.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors! Yes! Especially dread falls in black and purple.

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list?

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? I have 3 cats (2 younger, 1 an old lady) and they would love toys and treats.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? I've already ordered what I wanted. *Guilty*

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things) I just ordered imps, too, but I know I'm going to want Weenies.

9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage?If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type? I'd love a sugar skull banner that can stand the outdoor PNW weather.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year? I do. I'm more of a spice person than a pumpkin person.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? I cook and bake, but I love to experiment most. I could use some specialty salts, asafoetida and other Japanese and Indian spices and oils.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? I'm not a huge fan of either. Give me the damp woods after the rain, a babbling brook, and a musty library any day.

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

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? Sure.

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones? ​Opal, garnet, amethyst, emerald, onyx, hematite.

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? ​I like necklaces and rings. I generally don't like things around my wrists and my ears are super sensitive (sterling silver, titanium, surgical steel only). My tastes range. I do like geometric as well as anything biology inspired like bones, skeletons, or anything from n_e_r_v_o_u_s (dot) com. I also prefer traditionally gothic and Baroque pieces like from Curiology or Alchemy Gothic.

Any love of pirates or SCA? The clothing, yes.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? Disney Villains enamel pins, specifically anything Scar, Maleficent, Cheshire Cat, Ursula, Yzma, Shere Khan, Oogie Boogie, Lock/Stock/Barrel, Evil Queen, or Fantasia villains related.

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? Slytherin, although I've gotten Ravenclaw once or twice.

How do you feel about chokers? Gothy ones, sure. Otherwise, no.

9/17/17

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so! Anything regional like very specific spreads, ingredients, spices, and foods along with regional crafts.

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? Things to hone clarity for prophetic dreaming. Mine are close to the actual event, but sometimes too cryptic.

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? Sure!

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? ​Candles for sure, and perhaps some choice herbs.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? Everything except berry and fruit scents.

9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? Yes,everything except thigh highs since I have thick thighs (and calves for that matter, which means no knee highs with less than 17" stretch). The only fibers I'm not fond of are pure wool and angora since I'm allergic.

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

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? Sure!

So what are your favorite fandoms? The Crow, Dr. Who, MLP vinage, Disney Villains, Totoro or Studio Ghibli anything, Thundercats, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Fraggles, Heathcliff, Skeletor from He-Man, Elvira, Munsters, Addams Family, BioShock...I'm sure there's more.

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com I have a wishlist. I think it's linked in my signature.

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? Don't think so.

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...) I'm gothy, artistic, and nerdy, but I'm sure that came out pretty clearly in my answers.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. Gothic Baroque in teals, blacks, and whites.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? I have one, but I could always use a more spooky version of it. Oddly enough, I like my aprons with frills and pockets.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) No thank you.

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get! A hand-upholstered fainting chaise couch, wire raven art, Some really lovely black and white striped vases, some spooky wrought iron sculpture work for the garden, a stone Japanese pagoda, some hand-dyed or folded kanzashi....I'm sure there's more. Craft shows are a dangerous thing for me.

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these? I have an Emiu Honor 8. My laptop is just a tablet. If you can find a Cthulhu, Kraken, or Octopus decal, I'd be happy with that.

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.) Yes!

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. Sadly, I can't eat garlic. I know. It's cruel and unusual punishment.

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

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight. I'd be down for a spooky dice bag.


9/24/17

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ They really are. I like the Poppy King and The Dahlia Tree.

If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? Japanese or pastoral imagery...or universe/constellations/stars.

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson =^-^=...=o-o=! All. of. it. I love every single thing about her work. It's my kind of spooky. I'm in love!

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/ Those necklaces are amazing! (Spring Breeze, Hammered Hoops, Choose Your Mood)

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.) Yep. Shawl, bag, critter. Blacks, purples, teals, cobalt blues are all wins for me.

I do. I love chocolate, and weird candy.

I get the Sephora Box and BoomBox, but neither is really floating my boat these days.

I play a lot of music through Youtube at work, and Spotify at home.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?

I love Japanese food and candy. I am also mildly obsessed with matcha.

River Song because her sass appeals to me.

09/09/17
Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
Their bath stuff looks amazing. I have a bath addiction.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
I hear the chocolate is better, but nothing specific. I do love Doctor Who and Harry Potter, though.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?
I used to listen to the Nerdist, but haven't been lately. I don't need merch, though.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
I'm always fascinated by this site, but haven't purchased anything yet. I've been eyeing the Clean Slate and Road Opener Bath Spells.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
They look lovely. I do love the sound of The Patapsco Female Institute and Fortune Teller: Ogham.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
They're really pretty. I would love something more cool neutralish (but I do love crazy colors too - there are so gorgeous bright ones) like Chleo, Ballet Slipper, or Sweet Pea.

09/08/17
Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
I do like stationery. I love writing letters, and have a real weakness for stickers and stamps. Nice pens are my absolute kryptonite though.

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
I've used CP Shampoo, Conditioner and Scrubs in the past. Some scents that look interesting are Harlequin Mask, Lucid Dreaming, Nate, Rebellion, and Zombie Apocalypse. In the past, I have liked The Enchanted, Green Tea, and the Un-Red as well.
- Or Haus of Gloi?
LE: My absolute favorite is Beguiled (a summer scent). I keep forgetting to get more until after it is gone EVERY time. However, I see there are leftovers, but omg, I need to get ready for work. Please, please, please, let me remember this later. From this update, Grimoire, Spider Silk, and the Horseman intrigue me. I need to message them about ze cinnamon to check though.
GC: I know already like Depravity (haha, I know, so me), Imp, and Satyr. Eudemonia and Litchi Milk Tea also look promising.
Products I like: Pretty much all of it, but especially the scrubs. I adore the softness of the bubbling scrubs.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
I was looking at a Dia de los Muertos wreath in Michaels, but it was ugly as all get out, and had no marigolds in it. I wouldn't mind a spooky wreath. I adore black cats, ravens, and sugar skulls. If the bf objects, I can always hang it on my classroom door.

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
Well, as the owner of an adorable house panther, black kitty things always make the list. I also noticed some grapefruit scented things returning this year (I see you Monster's Ball and Ectoplasm), which I am always delighted with.

09/07/17
Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update?
I adore Moona's scrubs and bath salts, but I've used some of her other products as well. Some of the scents that looked promising were: Cassandra's Cauldron, Full Moon, Smoldering Havana Charmer, Sweetgrass and Smoke, Witches Milk, The Witching Hour, and Green Witch. I haven't ordered anything yet, but I usually ask if there's any cinnamon in what I'm interested in first. I'm not usually a foodie lover, but I tend to make exceptions for scrubs.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground? Whole beans.
- Flavor and roast preferences? I tend to drink low acidity medium roasts, but I'm usually good with anything light or medium. I love the taste of a dark roast, but sometimes they upset my stomach.
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? Mmm, yes, tea. I could use more in the herbal department, but I like tea in general. My favorite tea shop back home was called Souvia.
- Loose leaf or tea bags? Either is fine.
- Anything specific you don't like? No cinnamony teas (looking at you chai) due to allergies.
- Are you in need of any gadgetry? Sometimes, I use those fillable tea bags. I used to have a cute infuser, but it ran away in the last move. The ball-shaped ones never seem to keep the tea out of my cup.

09/06/17
How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- Would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
That would be super neat! I think a large box or the imp tin would be most useful, but honestly, I'd appreciate anything at all in the BPAL storage department. I have a problem!

Who is into K-Beauty? What are your faves if you are?
I am obsessed with sheet masks. I have also done the double cleanse, but have gotten a little lazy lately.

What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever...
I have been exploring the paleo diet, but I am not strict at all. Merely curious...

09/05/17
What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
My mom loves it, so I saw it a lot as a kid. Now, I kind of wonder about what it was trying to teach me. Ah, overthinking everything, per the usual...

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
I enjoy it. As a very talented flusher, I don't tend to buy blushes, but pretty much everything else is fair game. I don't wear much in the way of loose glitter either. I prefer more natural products.

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
I'm always up for adventures in the food department.

09/04/17
Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts? https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1
Spooky Kitties and Spellbound are super cute, but I don't really need any more tee shirts. I will admit that Boo Sheet made me laugh loudly.

Switch Witch 2017

Updated 9/30/17

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?
https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1
YES. These are ADORABLE. I think a relaxed woman's 2XL should work for me.

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/
This definitely sounds delicious -- I don't drink coffee so maybe this is the alternative I've been looking for.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?
I like make up but I almost *never* use it, though eye shadow always comes in handy for me; I use it when I need to paint my skin for cosplay. I'm more of a lipstick/lip gloss/ chapstick person for everyday use.

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
Scooby doo was my CHILDHOOD! I'm all about him.

What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever..
For me this year I've been all about wax melts; I've purchased a total of 6 warmers this year alone to scatter around my house. My wax stash makes my BPAL obsession look pitiful. In addition I've discovered indie bath and body where I always used to do just Lush.

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
- What are your faves if you are?
I love the black face masks-- you know, the ones you paint on and it cleans out your pores?? I adore peeling those off like some weirdo. It feels so refreshing! I also like taking horrifying snap chats of the animal face masks (there will be pictures of me wearing them if my witchee gets any for me).
- If you aren't would you like to try something?
I'd like to try everything! I'm getting better at taking care of my skin and am starting a routine, but currently I just exfoliate 2 times a week, wear a sheet mask at least once a week and try to wash twice a day plus moisturizer of course. Would love to kick my beauty steps up a notch.

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
1000x yes for this question! A big wooden box would be the best for me since I have so many favorite bottles I can't decide. I need to start carrying imps around so I wouldn't say no to a tin.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground?
- Flavor and roast preferences?
No to all coffee, sorry!
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors?
Fruity and light so like peach tea is my current favorite, but any fruity blend I'm into.
- Loose leaf or tea bags?
Either is fine.
- Anything specific you don't like?
Nothing too strong or astringent. I like my tea light and sweet.
- Are you in need of any gadgetry?
I will never turn down another tea strainer (even though I have like 10 at this point).

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update?
Maybe try me! I like Moonalisa's lotion, softest lotion I've ever used.

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like?
I've been drooling over this entire update. Lush is liiiiifeee. I definitely would love to try the jelly bombs - I've never used one of those before! And the magic wand and ooo hedgewitch soap. . . Honestly almost everything from this update is magic. Can't wait until these come out! <3

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
Um, YES.

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Or Haus of Gloi?
Yes to cocoa pink, no to HoG. I haven't been feeling their scents very much recently.

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
Yes ~~ I'm currently planning out my planner for 2018 and will welcome any little things that'll make it more fun!

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
Oh! They look amazing! Those magic top coats are gorgeous too. I might be putting an order into here soon enough lol.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
I feel like I'm saying yes to everything but these look amazing too. I'm definitely going to get my hands on that halloween box.

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
The candles are fascinating. I'd probably would be more than interested in one of those ~

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?
Welcome to Nightvale, RABBITS, The Black tapes and I'm just starting to listen to Tanis! There's some merch, but I honestly haven't explored any merch besides Welcome to Nightvale stuff.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
I won't say no to someone sneaking me some Kinder eggs. (Is that illegal? Ignore that if it's illegal.)

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
I love future primitive -- someone sent me some during another round and I'm about a third of the way through the bottle which is a lot for me.

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
I would love to get into making my own B&B products, namely massage bars and oils, but also sugar scrubs. Honestly I think it'll be fun exploring scents and giving these as gifts to my friends and family.

((This wasn't phrased as a question, but I turned it into one lol)) Would you be interested in any of these? http://www.deardarkling.com/lies-beneath-boots-darkling-socks-fall/
Of COURSE. Anything warm and adorable that can go on my feet is welcome this season.

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, for what purpose would you want it to be made?
Hm a friend of mine makes magical tea and I love hers. Honestly I go with what I need at the moment , which is normally luck and good health but that can change pretty quickly.

Do you like poetry?
I have no feeling for or against it -- I don't have any favorites or loves right now though.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
Yes to all 3! I love handmade critters/stuffed animals. Custom repaints depends on the critter, but I won't say no to most of them.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
I wouldn't know what to do with any nice/ designer yarn! I'm more of a cheap yarn person so I don't feel bad when I mess up haha.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?
I would love this! Any animal rescues (especially dogs!) is perfect for me. <3

Question! I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
That's such a hard question!! There's a lot of things I want but fun snacks are always awesome, or maybe something from one of my favorite animes?! I'll have to think about that one!

How do you feel about nail wraps?
I love all things nail related. .. . except for nail wraps. Maybe I keep my nails too short for them? I just know I've never had any luck with them.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?

Handwarmers I love them! I like fingerless gloves too and sometimes I wear scarves and cowls depending on the weather. But handwarmers I use everyday in the winter *hint hint*. My favorite would be in black, but I do love rainbows and really any color except yellow by itself. I can rock handwarmers with any outfit.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
o_o Arya stark because she's a BAMF? I don't want to go through the horrid training she went through. Maybe Brienne of Tarth? Or maybe I should stay away from the death zone that is game of thrones. Outside of this Moana from Moana because she literally is one of my favorite strong female characters who is just her own form of BAMF.


If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
I'm assuming this is like Doctor Who style time travel and would love to either go back to the "big bang" and see the creation of the universe, or I'd like to travel back to the Cretaceous period where all the big bad dinos lived so I could see them and just be able to experience them in their natural environment.

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
Neil Gaiman maybe? mmm this question bothers me since I don't really want to talk to super famous people.

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best.
Nothing I'm super interested in unfortunately. (Or at least nothing that's less than $100).

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
If it doesn't put you out too much! I would prefer either a skirt or maybe a bpal pouch? A friend of mine got a homemade bpal pouch and its the cutest thing ever.

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories, special masks, or makeup or odds and ends?
I love things from kryolan but it depends on the cosplay. Costuming accessories would be also dependent on cosplay, but I love beautiful masquerade masks, cloaks and other pieces.

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
I use sugar scrubs as soap so I don't really like buying soap bars.
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
I love almost anything! Fall and halloween are my favorite so anything skulls, bats pumpkins and so on. I like seeing the cute little decorations but if they're too "childish" I will most likely not use it. I also saw someone mention the green skinned bumpy witches; unless they're Elphaba from Wicked I tend to stay away from that cartoon characterization of witches.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
CANDY?! YES TO ALL. The only thing I can't stand is black licorice ugh.

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
I have like 3 fidget spinners so maybe not more of those, but any fun little desk toys are always welcome! I have a tiny xmas tree I like to bring to work with me that I got in another swap.
Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
I've always seen the books and been interested in trying, but I'm a hardcore doodler.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
All of the above. Especially long hair clips with feathers! but since I've been growing my hair out I like decorating it.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Again, all of the above! Especially local honey -- I can't get enough of honey. Still no anise.

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
Yes! I've always wanted to try Ipsy; it seems like such a cute idea. I also used to get japancrate so anything from that line is always welcome (Japancrate, Doki Doki, Umai). Most snack subscriptions are good too-- I got tired of graze tho haha.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
Mmm the nail effects maybe? I'm picky about that sometimes too. Depends on if it's something from the drug store or if it's a nice company. I'm not trying to be an a-hole I just break out easily lol.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
Spotify and I-tunes! Mostly spotify but I also love some CDs.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
See my Goodreads for my book list if you need one (in my siggy), but I love horror/scary books! And I'll do either format; I read on my kindle/phone a lot, but I also have a huge pile of real books.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
wax tarts!! I'm not a huge fan of too much pumpkin/cinnamon scented things, but most bakery/fruity items work well in my home. And YES to the wax tarts burner! I love adorable burners. I have about 5 or 6 right now but no halloween ones.
are you interested in crafting materials?
This question is super specific for me; it depends on what I'm working on. Current project involves origami stars, origami cranes and anything on my pinterest craft list I'll try eventually.

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?
I am a gamer of course. ~~ Kingdom hearts I'm going through again, doing Diabolo 3 run throughs for when I need to murder, and town of salem when I need to think and also be frustrated by 12 year olds.
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
I have a steam wishlist. i believe my username is Dracosilverwolf there too.

What rares are you dying to try???
Goldenrod crab spider? Is that a rare??? I also would love to have a decant of Lucielle sharp (I don't think i'll like her, hence the need for a decant like a tester), I'd love to take a sniff of OLLA eve one day, but she's another I just want to sniff and probs won't be crazy over. That's about it.

Comic books and graphic novels:
Yes?? Manga and manwha too.

Disney?
Yes???

And what about Harry Potter related items?
of course!! Slytherin please ~~

Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)?
Um. . . I'll double check inventory, but I think I'm open to everything but more dogs (and that's a decision by the township not by me).

What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap?
This is another one I feel like I've answered before? Nevertheless; fabric is always welcome? I like art prints too, no specific kind or medium its in. Can i write a big IDK for this one?
I'm in The Netherlands. Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in?
Kinder eggs! Kinder products in general, but I love getting the eggs. <3
Wax Melts:
I love wax melts! supertarts is my top choice, with scarlet raine, candy panda and rosegirls as close seconds.

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

I like the leafy and chevron. I like thick fluffy scarves that have interesting designs most of the time> Something I can nestle into.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
Nah.

Like booze? What kinds?
Good dark rum from the islands so I can make some Caribbean Rum cake.

Like Wine? What kinds?
As sweet as candy wines. The more like grape juice the better.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
Yes!!! Long lovely ones are amazing. I'd love a pair of rainbow hair falls! I have aqua ones already, so anything not aqua is perfect.

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?
I watch things whenever I feel like it haha. I don't really have a time of year for them. The only thing I try to watch every Halloween (or at least this time of year) is Nightmare before Christmas and the entire Harry Potter series. Scary movies I watch whenever but there's never been one I've watched more than once.

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?
3 puppers who love squeaky toys! No treats please (I'm a strict momma! And we make our own treats lol.)

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
I'll just list it here; Deathly delights, pumpkin number 14, number 16, number 1, number 4, number 9, Hallowcats, boogieman, vampire vanilla bat, Ichabod, bloody kashmir red velvet cake, bastet amber pear champagne, Ozymandias crystalline champagne, black cherry muscadine, white zifandel, mrelot and cabernet sauvignon. I can always do with a backup of moonstone too.

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now?
The puppers I'm good on for now, but as for Fatherhood. . .: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, A Cute Kid, Like Father like Daughter, The pillory and maybe zip line? Focus on like father, like daughter and a cute kid.

Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
No thank you.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?
I live near a Trader Joe's and I'm still interested in their goodies.

Do you have use for warm handknitted scarf, hat and/or mittens?
yes!!

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I think I answered this before. . .? I like spatulas, whisks and things like that. Good wooden spoons. Just bought a new knife set so those are good. I can't think of any ingredients right now.
I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
I'm there all the time so no thanks.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
*panics* Some sort of cute halloween themed squeaky thing for the pups?!

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
Nah! I overdosed on those this year haha. *Flashes sheets of stamps* I'm good. I'm moving on to sharks right now.

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
I'm not a huge fan of lavender, but my mom is! So if you do get anything lavender it'd be an awesome present for her.

Are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
I'm actually not all that into divination I've never been any good at it! I wouldn't mind a book to see more information on it though-- I have several well loved tarot decks right now.

Would my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
That I'd be super interested in!


Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
Nope! I like crystals because I'm a huge gem and rock nerd, but that doesn't count.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
Hm I'm semi tempted by the soaps, but I'd rather have the candles to be honest. Apple fest, monster melon and once bitten all sound divine from the halloween update. Almond vanilla sounds to DIE for and I might need about a hundred of these. Oatmeal milk and honey, Raspberry beret, and sugar cane sunset all sound super good too.

EDIT: JUST REALIZED THE PRICE OF THESE. SOAP IS GOOD. SOAP IS SUPER GOOD. PLEASE DON'T BUY ME A CANDLE.

Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
Anklet for length (normally) but I like knee high ones when I'm being fancy ~~ I'll wear any fiber! I adore those giant super fluffy socks that keep your toes roasty toasty in the winter time. I get cold feet.

https://www.sockittome.com/women/stretch-it.html THIS WEBSITE IS DANGEROUS. I need all of these socks if they fit my calves. (I immediately starting shopping here STOP ME.)

Would you be open to previously-loved books?
I think I answered this somewhere before. ..? But yes! Gently worn books are the best for reading, and a little less gently worn books for crafting are always welcome in my house.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Of course! I sometimes don't use much of a scent so a partial bottle is always welcome. (And i can always find more if I really fall in love.)

So what are your favorite fandoms?
You're opening a HUGE can of worms here. This might have to be updated periodically as I look over my stuff haha. Any fandom related questions can be sent my way though! So just because it's not on my list doesn't mean I don't like it... Just means I might not have thought of it. As for items from my fandom I'll take about anything except phone cases. I'm picky about my case and always will choose safety over fashion for it.

Dr. Who, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Sherlock, Hannibal, Stranger Things, Merlin (BBC), Game of Thrones, (Anime and Manga considered fandoms?? If so this list will be about 100x longer), MLP, Terry Goodman's Sword of Truth series (just the books not the show), Lord of the Rings, Doctor Horrible, Pokemon, X-files, DISNEY, Orphan black, marvel (not a huge DC fan in general but do like things like WW), ((((TO BE UPDATED))))

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
YES I love thinkgeek! I really will be pleased with almost anything from there haha. I don't have a wishlist right now though.

1. Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
Nooooo??? Not sure lol.

2. Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)
Can't think of anything right now! I'll come back to this one if I think of anything.
3. If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
Gothic victorian eclectic medical nerd with librarian and geek tendencies? I think that works.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
All of the above! Especially a crafting apron. I'm always losing things when I'm sewing so having an apron might make things easier on me haha.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this?



And I'm gonna have to say that might be too creepy for me. I'm not good with collecting things with human faces. (skulls are a totally different story, but technically they don't have a face, so. . . . )

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?
If you have any cool playbills that I might like send them on to me! Otherwise I'm pretty set on my broadway merch.


Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?
No thank you! I think I'll be set after NY haha.

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
there's some cool things here! The sling bag is super cute.

- Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.
I am not sure! I don't go shopping too often so I ignore a lot of stores that I like. I guess it's dependent on the store?? I'm not sure. ;o;

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!
Honestly this question is dependent on mood haha. I love anything taxidermy and creepy, skulls and things (Which I've found at art and craft shows!). Also anything dragon flavored is nice. I love handmade bags, but they have to be big, last a while and long enough to go over my shoulder.

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
Everything sounds so good! I always get excited when patients give us See's as a thank you hahah.

Are any witchees into coloring books?
YES ALL of them. I have a bunch but I'm always looking for more.

is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
I was gonna say nah. .. but everything on this site is SO CUTE. I want it all haha. That ladle set is to die for omg.

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
Yes those look delicious! I always love some good apple cider ~~

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
I very rarely take baths! I do like oils and sugar scrubs. I do like bath bombs to watch them fizz so like my yearly bath I'll throw one in.

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like?
I do like B&BW! My favorite from them are their foaming hand soaps and regular hand soaps. I can't get enough of the amahhhzing halloween scents and bottles, so anything Halloween is a go in my world! I use the pocketbacs *sometimes*, but not that often since the time I need them is at work and I can't use anything strong scented at work!

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?
I have these cards everywhere! But I could always use more since I use them for everything. What I really love are the vinyl stickers that sometimes comes in packages -- I like to stick them on my car.

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous:https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/
So apparently this has nudity and my work has flagged me LOL. Oh well, I'm sure I'll love anything so I'm just gonna wing it and say yes!

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
Wolves, foxes, HYENAS, any bird of prey and DOGS for animals. (ETA: OCTOPUS!)
DRAGONS. DRAGONS, and more dragons for mythological creatures. Though i will accept griffins, wyverns (though not super happily for this one), chimera (think Greek origin), were-anything, dark fae, kraken (the kraken? Multiple kraken?! Am I going by video game lore or original?!), unicorns, did I mention dragons? Actually mostly any animal hybrid out there I'll enjoy, though not so much if they have a human aspect (Sphinx and harpies being an exception to this rule).

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

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
I'm interested in both, especially because of the meaning behind them.

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment? At work, I sometimes get access to things like plastic free food containers, unpaper towels, beeswax food wrap, etc. for free. If that's something you could use (for your or your witchee), let me know.
I'm not crazy into it, but I do like these sort of things! I'm trying to lessen my carbon footprint a little bit every year.

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson
YES TO ALL THE THINGS.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? (http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/clearance?dir=asc&order=price)
I was checking out the clearance and there's so many cute things there.

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) disclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything?
Anything! Just not shirts/pants skirts etc. But anything nice and snuggly warm for the winter I'll be happy to take. I just love scarves and shawls. <3

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?
I like travel mugs the most because with 3 dogs with whappy tails things tend to fall easily. My favorite is the one with a built in steeper from teavana (since that's sort of sbux related??), or the 20 oz travel mugs from Contigo. They're the easiest to drink out of and keeps things hot forEVER.

Next question--anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch
YES TO THIS. ALL THE FLAVORS. I'm not allergic to anything, just saying~~

do you like spicy foods?
I do at times! Those look DELICIOUS.

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
I haven't even had a chance to look at that yet! I'll update my wishlist when I get the chance haha. Still need to try motherhood whenever I get my decants.
I can tell you right now none of the dead leaves.

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
THE MITTS!!! AHHHHH!!! And the unicorns! But i love those mitts they look so comfy. We might have to chat after switchwitch season.

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Ugh no this question is too hard! Antique lace, glowing vulva, dragons reverie?

Who wants it? I can't be the only one! (Ask Baba Yaga by Taisia Kitaiskaia)
https://www.amazon.c...uct/1449486819/
I didn't know about this until right now but I want it haha.

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store
Gothy sounds right up my alley! But my work is blocking this site too haha.

In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things?
It depends for me what the style is! Black lace collars I tend to like to make, but lacey hand mitts and headbands are always welcome.

How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones.
The little ghost is adorable!!

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors?
Omgggg so many good things~
Body butter - lemon, vanilla or huckleberry look so good
This will be one of the few times i say ANY OF THE SOAP!!! Lychee and red tea? I swooon. Or the coco one. Mmm. Yup all of them. . . . except the patch one.
Lip balm - Meyer lemon cupcake, LEMON CREME from the ones that aren't sold out. ;o;
Perfume - Any of them! Except the patch one lol.

do you have an Etsy wishlist you'd like to link for me either in the thread or your blog?
Mine should be on the master spreadsheet with Twilight!

https://www.cratejoy...ernational-inc/
^^ I NEED THIS BOX. EVERY DAY. OF THE YEAR.

would any witchees be interested in NASA swag? I'm now super-close to Marshall Space Flight Center and will be visiting the space center with my kiddo pretty regularly. If so, what would you like? Clothes, a mug, magnets, a plush Snoopy wearing a flight suit?
NASA everything! I adore space and space themed things (I was so excited when galaxy EVERYTHING came out).

I might have missed the sad things question? I don't mind sad things!

does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/
I've never really tried solstice scents except for an imp here and there so I wouldn't mind trying more imps from them!





Amazon! wishlist! Just updated moments ago!

Q&A for 13 Days of Halloween 2017

Here is where I'm answering all the questions for the 13 Days of Halloween swap. I'll keep updating this thread and newest updates will be at the top.   **Updated 9/13**   Would you like to receive anything related to:   Disney?
I'm OK with Disneyd   If so, any favorite characters?
Alice in Wonderland (especially the Cheshire Cat), Malicifent, Snow White's evil Queen, Zero from Nighmare Before Christmas, and anything from the Haunted Mansion   And to be more specific about Disney: How do you feel about Beauty and the beast?
Not a fan   And what about Harry Potter related items?
We are big Potter fans in my house. I'm a Ravenclaw (but I secretly think I'm a Huffleclaw).   Pokemon? Any favorites?
Not into Pokémon   Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)?
I only buy BPAL but other similar oil based scents are OK. I do not do alchol based scents at all.   Bath & Body Works - love them or hate them? If the former, fave product types?
I like them. I usually get the shower gel, foaming hand soap, or hand sanitizer. I like their fall/Halloween scents, particularly things with pumpkin, apples, spices, and vanilla.   I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would be interested in?
Surprise me   Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in?
I'm always happy to receive Europian chocolate   how would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? if you are on board with that, would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
I can really use something for my imp storage. Especially if it has a way to separate collections or things. I don't need anything for my bottles...already have storage for them.   if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
I'm good but thank you.   Nail wraps - yay or nay? Would including a small manicure set to go with them help?
I like nail wraps but do not need a manicure set.   Do you want wax melts?
No thanks, not a fan.   Are you okay with homemade food?
If you are shipping from the US...sure! If you are outside of the USA please check with US customs. They can get weird about some homemade foods. Mostly I think that pertains to fruits, nuts, and some cheeses.   If you are okay with decorations, do you have a preference to table-top, wall hanging or window decorations?
Decorations are good. Wall, door, or window decorations are pretty much always good. Table top...I have a cat and limited shelf/table space so while I like table top decorations I can't have a whole logo of them. If it's really awesome I'll find a space though.   How do you feel about stationary and/or papercrafting supplies?
Honestly I have way more stationary right now than I'm actually using. And I've been getting rid of my paper crafting supplies so please no more.   How do you feel about kitschy/silly Halloween jewelry?
Not my thing. I won't wear it.   Would you like a Halloween wreath?
I would like a Halloween wreath. I keep meaning to make one but I never seem to get around to it.   What rares are you dying to try???
Alice in the Pumpkin Patch, Snake Oil in the Pumpkin Patch, and Dorian   Do you like comic books and/or graphic novels?
I do. I don't have any I'm currently following but I like horror comics, and things like Sandman, Johnny the Homocidal Maniac, and Lumber Janes.

SW 2017 Help! (Probably useful for 13 Nights of Halloween too)

Hello, dear Witch! Just a reminder to take a look at the address section of my questionnaire before mailing anything my way. I'll be relocating to Huntsville, AL on October 1st, so anything you're planning to mail my way on that date or later should be sent to the Alabama address. If you're planning to send anything that will be delivered in September, please use the Michigan address. Thank you, thank you! <3

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/
Shower gels and candles will always get plenty of use, as will the travel-sized anti-bacterial hand gel (I like the Halloween Faves and Fall Celebration collections). All of the autumn scents sound incredible - all the pumpkin ones are a good bet (Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, Salted Caramel Apricot, Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice, Bright Autumn Blooms). Oh, oh! And this little guy: http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/p/furry-black-cat-pocketbac-holder-023538044.html?cgid=pocketbac-sanitizer-holders#start=2

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like?
I don’t know the first thing about crystals, but I’ve always loved turquoise, rose quartz, and geodes, for whatever that’s worth!

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?
Yes please!

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?
Any and all, especially if they contain chocolate!

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)
My skin can be extra picky at the moment, given the baby and all, so I should probably avoid for now.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
Oh man, I wish! Pregnancy makes me a temporary teetotaller.

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

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
Oh lawd, those all sound incredible!

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.
I had no idea this was a thing, but I want them in my mouth!

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

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases?
I can always use cosmetics/pencil bags (both small and large) for sewing stuff!

9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm
The caramel sounds great! Not a big fan of cinnamon in drinks.

Do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?
I love using bath oil as moisturizer; for baths, I like to use bath bombs, bubble bath, and the like. I’ve never tried bath salts, but I’m very open to trying them!

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?
I have an iPhone 7 and a MacBook pro - I’ve been eyeing this ridiculous phone case for awhile: https://www.dollskill.com/valfre-drop-dead-cigarette-iphone-case.html
Some sort of decal for the laptop would be nice too!

9/21/17

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?
Yes! Yes to all the Halloween candy and snacks!!

Are any witchees into coloring books?
I am! Anything Halloweeny, Disney, Star Wars, Lisa Frank, or sci-fi/horror would be wonderful!

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?
I’ll have to take a proper look a little later. Possibly!

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

9/20/17

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?
I love musicals! I have a hard time keeping up with current ones, though. My absolute favorite is Les Mis, but I’ve been wanting to see The Book of Mormon, Spamalot, and of course Hamilton! I’ve never met a musical I didn’t like, for whatever that’s worth (though I really don't care for The Sound of Music… I know, sigh.)

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
No thank you, I have a go-to NYCC fairy.

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

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I love TG! I think I’m all stocked up on their stuff for the moment, though.

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
Nothing that I can think of, but please don’t hesitate to prod me if I’ve neglected something that you’d like to know!

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot…)
I think with all these additional questions, we’ve covered just about everything!

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.
Oh man, every room in our house is thematic. We have the retro space room, with lots of NASA swag; the sci-fi room, with lots of Mass Effect, Alien, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek, and other fandom gear; and my eventual sewing room

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting?
No thanks, I have a few that I hardly ever use as it is!

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll)
Cute, but not for me.

9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?
I wear socks when I wear pants (any and all kinds - knee-high, ankle, crew, whatever), but I prefer tights. Any fiber is fine.

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

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Of course!

So what are your favorite fandoms?
Mass Effect, Battlestar Galactica, and Game of Thrones are the big ones that have fairly large followings.

9/17/17

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!
I LOVE lavender! Anything with lavender would be lovely, but I can’t think of anything specific.

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?
No thanks!

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?
No thank you.

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?
No thank you!

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?
I’m always on the hunt for new soaps! And OMG, they’re a local MI company?! SWOON. All the things! All the Halloween soaps sound incredible and totally up my alley. I think I may have to place an order myself soon regardless!

9/16/17

Favorite gemstones?
I don’t have a particular favorite, really. I like a little bit of everything, especially vintage costume jewelry.

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?
Large and chunky! I love statement necklaces and bold vintage pieces.

Any love of pirates or SCA?
Not sure what that acronym stands for. Pirates are pretty neat, but not one of my favorite things.

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?
Ooh, I do love Ariel/The Little Mermaid and the Haunted Mansion!

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?
I’m a Slytherin but not into the fandom enough for any swag.

How do you feel about chokers?
Love them!

9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?
Ooh, both are very nice!

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?
I currently live near a Trader Joe’s and love their pumpkin goodies! However, I’ll be moving to a place with no convenient TJ’s (woe!!!!!), so if you’d like to send me some pumpkin goodies once I’ve moved, that would be lovely.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I bake occasionally (and I cook as infrequently as possible). I think I’m good on utensils and gadgetry.

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
Ooh, maybe something bike-related! I don’t ride, myself, but I’d like to learn and my spouse has a Buell and is an amateur rider.

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
I’d also like a reveal!

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
Sure! I’m running low on my planet stamps, so any other space-y stamps would be great!


9/14/17

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?
I have three kitties who love little mouse toys, and my little guy, Seamus, loves board books. If you find something you’d like to send their way, I’m sure they’d love it!

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
I haven’t really gotten into NAVA, so no thanks.

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)
I think I’m all set on Post goodies for now.

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
I hesitate to call myself a gamer because I really only play a few games, specifically the Mass Effect franchise, Alien: Isolation, and a few others. Mass Effect is far and away my favorite, and I’d welcome any swag I don’t already have (which is quite a lot). I’ll have my Amazon wishlist linked to my blog post, but I don’t think I have any ME stuff listed there.

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)?
• Simple eyelet scarf
• Chevron scarf
• Lacy and fuzzy
• Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping)
• Leafy !
I really like the lacy and fuzzy one (in black would be spectacular!) and the simple eyelet scarf. The others either aren’t really my style or seem a little too heavy for wear in the South.



Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
Yes, but I’m currently abstaining since I’m pregnant. Womp womp. When I can drink, I typically like really hoppy IPAs.

Like booze? What kinds?
See above. Gin, whiskey, and bourbon are my favorites. I hate rum.

Like Wine? What kinds?
Again, see above. Wine isn’t my favorite, but I’ll drink it occasionally. I like really dry wines, and champagne too.

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?
Oh, do we! Let’s see (in no particular order)… we don’t watch all of these each and every year, but many of them get at least one viewing per season: And yes to merch - most of our home decor is related to our favorite movies, many of which are listed below:

Halloween
Psycho
Hocus Pocus
The Witch
It Follows
Clue
Ghostbusters
Sleepy Hollow
Carrie
Corpse Bride
Nightmare Before Christmas
Young Frankenstein
What We Do in the Shadows
Creepshow
Poltergeist
House on Haunted Hill
Cabin in the Woods
The Shining
Beetlejuice
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Alien and Aliens
Silence of the Lambs
Rosemary’s Baby
The Birds
Vertigo

Blair Witch Project
Night of the Living Dead

Evil Dead
The Thing

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Crimson Peak
The Others

Let the Right One In

Blade Runner (not strictly horror, but we usually watch it this time of year)
Jaws (not on the annual viewing list because we watch it for the 4th of July, but it’s a big fave)

New additions once they’re available for purchase/streaming or new this year:
It
Get Out
It Comes at Night

We also watch the Halloween episodes of The Office, Frasier, Modern Family, and Roseanne every year. I may have a problem. Maybe.

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
GERANIUM ROSE!!!!! Holy crap, it’s so hard to find good geranium products. I’d LOVE to try that scent. Lavender, milk, vanilla bean, and the Bearwalker Beer Bar look wonderful too.

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
No thanks!

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
Clips, bobby pins, and the like would be great! Again, my hair is short (think grown-out pixie) and pretty fine, so anything more substantial than that would just fall right off my head!

What local goodies may be of interest? Local honey, jams, candy?
Anything! I’d adore local goodies that my Witch loves.

Are you interested in any subscription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
Hmm, I’m not interested in those in particular.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
YES! I love all that stuff, especially crazy huge lashes.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, and vinyl (but I promise I’m not a vinyl snob!). If I buy a CD, I just burn it onto my computer and then donate it

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
I prefer actual books, but I have a Kindle and purchase e-books from time to time too. I like classic literature, true crime, historical non-fiction, and a host of others. I’d love to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book! Those are always welcome.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
Candles or tarts are great! I have a tart burner, but a Halloween-themed one or Weenie candle holders would be fun!

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
Aside from fabric (which I’m pretty picky about) or cross-stitch supplies, I’m probably pretty set.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
I WISH! I have super short hair so it totally wouldn’t work on me, but oh are they beautiful!

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
I’m still mulling this one over.

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

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

If you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
I would absolutely love something hand-knit! A cowl, scarf or hoodie/scarf hybrid would be perfect! I’ll be relocating to Alabama at the end of September, so I’m afraid anything for super-cold weather wouldn’t get any more use.

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
Oh gosh, I’m in a torrid affair with Kit Kats and I’d love to try some of the wacky Japanese flavors! Any other snacks or candy would be much appreciated too. Otherwise anything kitschy or especially Japanese-y would be cool! I’m also a big Cowboy Bebop fan, if that sort of thing is still available over there.

How do you feel about nail wraps?
I’d love to try some Halloween-inspired ones!

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
Knitting and crochet! I’m a southpaw and never really learned either properly, though I’d really like to. I have a sweater kit sitting in the bag it came in that I really need to get started on. One of these days!

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
No thank you.

Do you like poetry?
Yes! Love to read it, love to write it. I like contemporary stuff, Modern, and older stuff too. I was an English major in undergrad and focused a lot on poetry. Happy to provide more information if my Witch is poetically inclined as well.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
I would love anything my crafty Witch wanted to make for me, including any of the above!

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftiness?
I’d like to master crochet or knitting first, but if my Witch is knowledgeable about yarn and sundries, I’d love some tips for great shops.

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?
That would be wonderful. I’m a huge supporter of the ACLU; check my questionnaire for others. Also very big on pet and animal rescues.

Please provide wishes from the last two updates?
I lost all self-control and got bottles or decants of everything I was looking for in the last two updates, actually, but I know there will be a slew of Weenies that I’ll be lusting after!


9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)
OMG, literally all the autumn scents sound gorgeous. I’ve never ordered anything from this company, but I’d be up to try anything!

Are there any UK things you'd like to get?
ALL THE CADBURY PLS. (And not UK but close: If you happen to be in/around Northern Ireland, my husband’s family is from Ulster, and any related swag would be super cool.)

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? AM I?! I listen every day. My current faves are My Favorite Murder (I’m going to their live show in a few weeks, eeee!), Stuff You Missed in History Class, Lore, Last Podcast on the Left, and NoSleep. Would love some MFM merch, but I’m sure I’ll be picking some up at the live show. #ssdgm

Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)?
Beautiful stuff! Nothing really jumps out at me, though.

Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?
Holy crap, all three of those sound AMAZING. Such terrible enablers, you guys! I’m supposed to be saving money to move cross-country this month, sheesh!

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/
Again, I say HOLY CRAP. I think I mentioned in my questionnaire that I don’t usually have the time to paint my nails but OMG those are so beautiful I think I’d have to break that habit for some of those. I’m loving all the glittery ones and the black, blue, and purple fall ones.

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. I do use notebooks a lot, though I have to admit most of my pretty ones are mostly all empty because I don’t want to muck them up! (Perfectionist brain is such a chore sometimes!) I usually use Moleskine or spiral notebooks, but backwards because I’m a leftie and can’t be bothered to have a coil of wire jammed into the side of my palm. Fun pens get a lot of use as well.

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink?
- Or Haus of Gloi? I like Cocoa Pink but haven’t bought anything from them in a long time. Love Haus of Gloi, especially Ghost Puffs. I’ll check both sites and update accordingly when I have time to peruse properly.

Halloween Wreath? OMG they’re so beautiful! I’d love one, especially if my Witch is so inclined.

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? I haven’t checked out the update yet, but I do have several Weenie Moona scents that i enjoy.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? Love tea, love coffee. I’m trying to limit my caffeine intake lately, so decaf coffee and green, white, and herbal teas are preferred at the moment. I prefer coffee pods (I know, I know…) and loose leaf teas, but tea bags are great too.

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? An imp tin would be awesome! I had a couple cigarette cases that I used

The book "Alice Through the Looking Glass", some cut gemstones and uncut rocks, a seashell, loose leaf tea, caramel apple lollipops, imps of Jack and Burial, candy corn, and a 20 oz bottle of Diet Pepsi.   - Do you need storage boxes/bottles/containers?Decorated or Plain? I could really use a storage box for all my imps! I'm overloaded right now and they are all just shoved in a ziplock container. Decorated would be nice but plain is just fine too.   - The world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours? Either...hang out reading/watching movies and ordering in Chinese take-out *OR* Going thrift shopping for the day, having a lunch by myself with a good book, and then hanging out in my backyard with my puppers.   - Do you like steampunk & if so what kind of steampunk item would you most like to receive? I'm not huge into steampunk so dunno.   - Do you have an Etsy shop? No.   - Would you like to receive baked goods, if so what kind? No baked goods please   - What is something totally random (yes, that thing that just popped into your head) that hasn't been covered by any previous questions? See when you ask that sort of question my mind just goes blank. Like now.  
Notes (Here's where you can add additional information you'd like your Switch Witch to know!):   Hi! Just have fun with your "Witching" and I'm sure to like what you send. This is my first Switch Witch just an FYI. Also, I always remember stuff that I should of added/clarified/what have you *after* I send in my questionnaire...so check my BPAL profile. I'll keep updating under "Hobbies/Interests" anything that my partner may want/need to know. I'll also put my current wishlist info there once I update them. Thanks in advance!

13 Days of Halloween 2017 Questionnaire

Forum Name: Spookygrrrly   Allergies, dietary, and lifestyle restrictions:   For matching purposes, are there any common allergens in your environment, that might affect matching (pets, smoke, live in a field of ragweed)?   We have cats and a dog. I am very careful to make sure pet hair doesn't end up in packages but anyone with bad allergies probably wouldn't want the risk.  
Do you (or anyone who might come in contact or view of the contents of these glorious packages) have any kind of phobia, trigger, or squick-out which is likely to arise in fall or Halloween-themed goodies (please address concerns over spiders, ghosts, severed hands, etc., here)?   Nothing with too many spiders. I am totally fine with spiders but my husband and son are aracnophobic. If they don't look very real that's fine but a fake egg sac would not be.  
Is there anything (that you know of) which it is illegal to mail to you, or that might cause Customs to become upset and hang on to your package?   If mailing to the USA from another country you can not mail any fruit, vegetables, plants, or seeds. You also can't ship nail polish or perfumes containing alcohol internationally.  
Do you celebrate any fall holidays? Please feel free to place as much info/context as you wish:   I celebrate Halloween and Samhain  
Are there certain things for these holidays--or your general love of fall-- that you would particularly appreciate receiving?   I prefer the orange and black vintage halloween type decorations. I also love the classic movie monsters, haunted houses, ravens, and skeletons. Think spooky more than gorey.   If you celebrate Halloween, are you dressing up? I haven't decided what I'm doing this year.   *What as? Not sure   *Would you like costume additions or accessories? No thanks   Would you like decorations? Sure  
Favorite Colors: Green and purple / red and black/ black and grey   Least Favorite Colors: Pastels  
Favorite Flavors: Pumpkin, chocolate, spices, caramel   Least Favorite Flavors: sour...unless it's sour apple   Do you like coffee and/or tea? Tea!   Favorite snacks and treats: I can't think of much to put down because most of my snacks/treats are fruits. Though I do like cookies, good chocolate, and if you are international love to try treats I can't get in the US  
Favorite scents(both specific notes and perfume blends): To give you an idea my favorite BPAL scents are: Burial, Snake Oil, Gingerbread Snake, Ouija, Womb Fury, and Jack. I tend to go for foodie, spicy, leathery sorts of scents. Rarely do florals except for Jasmine. I LOVE honey notes.   Least Favorite Scents: Anything with rose, ozone, or "cold" scents.   Do you wear nail polish? Not really.   Would you like makeup? Not for this swap as I'm pretty picky with my makeup   *If you would like makeup, what sorts would you prefer?   *Any favorite makeup brands, colors?   *Any hated/not-preferred makeup brands, colors, or products (example: thanks to your sample box of choice, you hope never to see another black eyeliner as long as you live)?   Favorite bath and body products? No products for baths because I only have a shower, so things like bath bombs won't work. Hair gloss is good. I like nice soaps too.  
Personal clothing style: Goth casual...I wear a lot of staple pieces (jeans, leggings, t-shirts, cardigans) but they are usually black...or have bones on them...and it's all about the accessories: shoes, hair, jewelry   Do you like jewelry? I do but I'm a jeweler so I tend to just wear my own. Though if you make jewelry I love to have pieces by other jewelry makers too.   *If so, what sort? Pendants, bracelets, and earrings   *What sizes and/or lengths do you prefer? 18" or longer necklaces, I have a 7" wrist but if it's a bangle with no clasp than it needs to be large, any earrings but wearing more dangly earring lately.   Would you enjoy receiving wearables (shirts, socks, shoes, arm/legwarmers, hats,etc.)? hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, and socks are OK   *Sizing on wearables: I don't think those really come in sizes. Just general women's sizes.  
Home style: In progress. We're in the middle of clearing out and reworking things right now. Though I adore Victorian architecture and styling, collect horror memorabilia, my husband is into sci-fi and baseball, and our home is very mid-70's...you can see what I'm working with here.   Would you appreciate decoratives or art for your home? No thank you   *Are there any restrictions (no naked people, no breakables, that kind of thing)?  
What sort of music do you like? Most kinds but I listen to a lot of hard rock, goth, punk, alternative sorts of things.   Are you okay with burned music CDs? I don't have a way to play them.   Do you have VHS/DVD/Blu-Ray...Betamax? DVD & Blu-ray   *does your player of choice have region restrictions? Region 1

Are there any other members of your household(significant other, furbabies, small, adorable humanoids, any other awesome person you consider partof your world) who might appreciate a little bit of fall-themed gifting? They get spoiled enough (trust me) this swap is just for me

2017 Already?

Hello dear Witch. I'm following along with the master question list, but I may fall a bit behind. Feel free to poke me if you need an answer to anything.

***A note on spooky things*** Since it's Halloween, I want to reiterate a point from my wishlist. I am, for lack of a better word, superstitious. I do NOT want any items that are in the spooky/scary/gorey realm. Nothing referencing death, demons, or supernatural evil please. I can enjoy the occasional cutesy ghost or friendly witch, but I really and truly find macabre items disturbing. I do not want to invite that type of energy in my house. That applies to imagery and scent descriptions. No death, no demons, no exceptions.

How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions No thanks!

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/ The armwarmers are cute, but I wear black/red/grey during the winter, so most of these colors don't really work. Purple and blue are warm weather colors

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs? Needle in a Haystack.

What are some things you do NOT want to receive? Knick knacks, incense (or other strongly scented home or body products that I haven't said were ok), heavily processed foods, and non-BPAL perfume. Honestly, though, I'll be happy with whatever you send

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store No thanks

Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things? They're usually not my style, and I don't do DDLM, but if you see something that seems like my taste - sure!

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors? I think I have F Balm liked on a wishlist somewhere....

9/25/17

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? Maybe. I always look at the calendars and day planners every time I go somewhere that sells them, but then I never actually buy anything. I get decision paralysis with all the options. Calendar wise, it's nice to have something magnetic that can fit on our fridge (up on the freezer door so that kiddo can't reach it). Day planner wise, I like space for notes, full month views, and no extraneous foofera (like, I don't need 12 pages for phone numbers or time zone conversions. That's what cell phones and the internet are for)
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? I'm pretty open. I usually like darker colors (black, jewel tones, the same as my clothing tastes), but for work I use a bright blue almost turquoise color scheme. I trend classic and/or minimalist in my stationery tastes. The only things I don't like are 1.) super cutesy stuff - nothing that is reminiscent of Lisa Frank or Hello Kity and 2.) stationery with so much design that there is not actual space to write. If a post-it note has an all-over pattern, it needs to be subtle enough that I can write over it and still read what I wrote.
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads? I'm down! My only rule is that it has to be actually usable. If function was sacrificed for design, it will drive me mad.

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson I don't think so. I like some of her stuff a lot, but I couldn't find a combination of 1.) art I like, 2.) that isn't too creepy, 3.) on a product I would use, and 4.) in the right color scheme for the room where it would be used.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/ Whoo, that was a lot of stuff to go through. I'm listing by categories below. I want to mention that I sometimes list items on wishlists that are WAY too expensive for a swap like this (similarly, I've got DIY projects liked that are way too complex). I figure it can be useful to get a sense of taste, but it's in no way intended to suggest that I expect crazy expensive stuff!

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.) I am super pro-handmade as long as it fits my general tastes

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun? Nope. I do drink Starbucks when travelling, but I don't collect their merch.

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch. Sure. I'm not a huge fan of super, super sweet things.

do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker) I'm generally good with spicy, but I don't like vinegar based hot sauces (e.g. Tabasco) or the taste of peppers (as in, I'm fine with foods made with/from peppers but I wouldn't want to bite in to a piece of pepper). The chips look like a great snack.

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus??? Shockingly, I think I'm good. There are a few "hmm, maybe" scents, but nothing that makes me go MUST HAVE. I'm waiting for the BPTP update.
9/24/17

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need? Nope

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ There are definitely some pretty ones there. Nothing is a must have for me, but I do think they're generally nice.

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? Dogs, wolves, some bats are pretty adorable, big cats can be gorgeous. I'm an ecumenical animal lover

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

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)? Take a Knee sounds good, and I love the cause. It's almost enough to make me break my I have too much and am not buying more rules.

9/23/17

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/ So, I can't walk into a B&BW without my asthma going crazy, which means that I actually don't know if I like any of their stuff. If there's a significantly less strongly scented line, maybe? I am pretty content without it unless there's something there you think I *must* have

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like? Um, I don't know crystals especially well. I think there have been some purple crystals featured in jewelry that I love, but I'm not really crafty enough to make my own jewelry. Not sure?

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? Yes

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? Oatmeal chocolate chip, Mexican wedding cookies (under any of their million names), regular chocolate chip, anything heavily chocolatey, peanut butter cookies, ginger snaps. I enjoy most cookie varieties, really.

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.) Hmm, maybe? I do have sensitive skin but it's usually not spices that aggravates it. On the other hand, somehow my father and husband have hoarded three things of tiger's balm and I have three menthol/vick's-esque balms as well, so maybe we should stop.

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

Want some honey from the bees on our property? Oh wow, yes! So cool.

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. Sounds delicious. I will mention that while I love homemade foods, I do prefer not to get home-canned items unless you're pretty confident in your skills. No first time attempts, please! *ETA* I say this for safety reasons, not taste reasons. I'm down for home-cooked experiments, I just don't want botulism

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. I love spicy but hate the taste of most peppers so probably not.

I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating. Yum! Also, my kid is crazy into dried and freeze dried fruits, so I will take any and all varieties (except raisins, F raisins)

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight. Possibly! We use a fox patterned fabric (cute foxes, blue background) very similar to what's on your site for all of our son's food bags (i.e. zip-up fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, a wet/dry bag that we use to carry his snacks in the car), so something in that pattern could be very useful particularly if it can hold small food items or be used as a lunch sack. I'm also a frequent work traveler, so bags that can hold small tech items (e.g. usbs, cell phone power packs, and the million cables that go with all our gadgets these days) are always welcome. I probably have too many travel toiletry bags for my own good now, but I've always liked the dopp kit style like the black and white boxed bag on your instagram.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases? Sure, but I'm fairly boring on that front. All of our sheets are black, white, or grey. Linen or cotton, though I'd be open to other fabrics if you have something you think it amazing. I use 5 pillows personally, so there are a lot of pillows to cover . On beds we mostly use regular size pillows. I suppose we also have several throw pillows if you meant that type of pillow. Oh, and I'm always meaning to buy a bolster to stick in the gap between our headboard and the mattress, so a case for that type of pillow could be useful

9/22/17

Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm No thanks. It looks nice, but I prefer fresh cider.

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above? I like bubbles. In fact, I love bubbles. I wish every bath included the type of bubbles ordinarily only seen in commercials and vintage pin up illustrations. All the bubbles! The problem is that most more natural bath products I've tried are sadly lackluster in the bubble department

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these? Ooh, good timing, I was literally just poking around etsy trying to find a case for my new phone. I'm getting a fancy phone (a Pixel) for the first time ever. I like having Google branded phones because they have fewer built in crap apps on them and work offered to help pay for my new phone because my current one broke due to a work issue. My case type of choice is that type that flips closed (usually called wallet or portfolio cases), and it looks like nobody makes them for the Pixel. So, I've been scouring the internet looking for either a proper flip case or a back only case that is nifty enough to make me forget that it's not a flip case. Listen, it's the little things that keep me sane these days.


9/21/17

See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc? pumkin spice truffles might be good. I don't like maple or caramel, so most of the other fall things are out. The fall brittle collection could be good (love toffee and brittles), but it's kind of weird that they don't list all the contents.

Are any witchees into coloring books? Not especially, but my kid is just now getting into crayons so we could share.

Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)? Not really my style. The scratch off maps are semi-interesting and it looks like they have the same hair clip multi tool that think geek does. Otherwise, I try to avoid a lot of plastic in my kitchen and "cute" is just not my aesthetic.

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

9/20/17

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to? I enjoy classic musicals (usually ones that are so counter my personal politics that I have to hang my head in shame, see for example Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), but I'm not up to date on current ones and my husband (a drama nerd) has a serious hatred for some of the ones I like. Probably best to avoid, sadly.

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there? Uh, nothing I can think of off the top of my head. To be honest, my head starts swimming every time I attempt to look at the exhibitor list. Comics wise, I am a fan of Warren Ellis (though much of his stuff is too horror oriented for me), I *love* webcomics (waaaay too many to list, but some faves are Spike Trotman's sadly defunct Templar AZ , Something Positive, Kill Six Billion Demons has recently been added to my list despite occasionally being to gross, and I have a soft spot for pretty fantasy/porn/bdsm comics like I Roved Out and Alfie - try not to judge me too harshly for that one). *Edit* So of course the lab announced their exclusive scents, and I missed it before answering this. I would use Apple VII and either the Honeyed Apple or maybe the Black Apple and Patchouli hair glosses, but none of those are desperate wishes.

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? See above, head swimming

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)? Too much. I didn't expect this to end up being such a rabbit hole for me. The Africa Camp Tee (XL), Buy Local and Save the Bees dishtowels, Ngamba baskets (any color), Ngamba trivet (blue), Guatemalan spiced trivet (blue), pot holder & cider sachet (blue), brownies, spice mixes, Afghan fluorite earrings, floating drops necklace, and sparkling strands necklace (turquoise) all made my "oh that looks interesting" list before I cut myself off from looking.

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items. Not really, so I've really loved seeing everyone else's answers!

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get! I love art! We typically hang a lot of photography, interesting prints, and sketches from favorite webcomic artists on our wall. Right now, however, we're renting a house with walls that can't hold a frame, so all our hanging art is in storage . At our local arts market, I always check out: baskets, boxes, wooden spoons, pretty serving/tableware items, pitchers, earrings, necklaces, and hair toys.

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com Oh think geek, how I love/hate you. I think the concept is *so* cool, but as a minimalist with some sustainability standards for stuff buying it's hard to find things that aren't useless knick knacks. I am feeling the need to flex my geekiness lately, though, and having a kid gives me a new interest in random toys/games, so I did a thorough look this time. Here's a long list from there. I didn't check prices, so forgive me if there's anything insane on here:
- Shirts: No (1), Firefly Henley (between L and XL), Kid's No (this is never in stock, but if it ever comes back I think it's awesome)
- Lounge pants: Constellations (2X)
- Road trip: Star Trek Sun Shade, Power Banks (I collect power banks. I especially look for unique ones, solar ones, and high capacity ones. I'm an android user.)
- Books: Hidden Figures, Women in Science, Otherworlds (AKA Pretty Space Pics FTW!), plus in general I love non-branded (ie not star wars/trek, disney, or other large brand) science themed board books for my kid if they add any (Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering is a fave around here)
- Toys: Spirograph (I remember these!), space coloring book, 3D printer pen, weird puzzles (had a friend who used to be really into these), planet and constellation blocks
- Random fun: multi-tool hair clips (in black please - I like random practical items and use this type of hair clip for work, so this intrigues me), planetary string lights, cold brew coffee infuser (I think a more pitcher-like bottle would be better, but this sure it pretty)

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? I am quite sure you're sick of reading about me at this point and with all the previous years' worth of blogs I can't imagine I've missed anything. If I think of anything crucial, I'll add it here.

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...) I do these swaps primarily because I like the idea of a large number of people sitting around thinking about ways to make someone else smile. I am pro crafty-witch, broke-witch, and I-can't-craft-to-save-my-life-witch. I know it can be hard to send things to a picky minimalist so just know that I get as big a kick out of hearing from you as from getting stuff.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. Edwardian industrial with a splash of tropical color? I've written pretty prolifically about this in the past (and I've got a ton of pinterest boards on decor), but I guess the best way to describe it is that I like classic, dark, minimalist underpinnings (e.g. vintage dark wood built in book shelves, old-school English kitchen cabinets, industrial metal shelving, art deco shapes) lightened up with sunshine, art, and intense color.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? I've been hunting for a pretty one lately. Looking for something I can easily toss on in hopes of not getting that wet line on my shirt waist every time I do dishes. I think one that covers the whole chest/torso would be more useful than a half one. I like the idea of cross over ones that don't require a ton of tying, but I also think the more retro cutesy ones are kind of adorable.

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) Not my jam specifically, but my kid might like it. On this note, back when the SW DIY board was added to pinterest, I went through and liked items that I thought could be cool. Now that pinterest has taken away the like button (because they're determined to make being on pinterest miserable), I have made the "pins you like" board public and continued to add pins from the SW board and people's personal DIY boards. There are some other random pins mixed in, but I think (hope) it's fairly obvious which are which.

9/18/17

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? Not often. I'm in the deep south, so the occasions to wear socks are rare.

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

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? BPTP definitely. I'm actually not looking for more BPAL right now - I have a huge backlog of "to-sniff".

So what are your favorite fandoms? Felt like I answered this in the questionnaire. In terms of products, since I mentioned t-shirts, I'll say that star trek, firefly, nasa, webcomic, and literary shirts are probably my geek shirt realm.

9/17/17

I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so! I use lavender bunches in little mini-vases on my kitchen window sill, so that might be cute!

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? No, looking into the future has too high a risk on unintended consequences.

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? No

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? No, and please don't send anything with "intent" unless it's directly from a wish list of mine. I am very cautious about this type of product.

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? Cool stuff, but I don't use bar soap.
9/16/17

Favorite gemstones? Emeralds

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? Mix of both? I like statementy stuff made of small, elegant pieces. I have a lot on both etsy and pinterest

Any love of pirates or SCA? YES!!!

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? Not in particular

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? Nope, not my jam

How do you feel about chokers? I like them (you'll find a few that I want in my etsy favs), but I find I don't wear them often

9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type? These are actually quite cute! Probably best to stick with things that can go on a door for me.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year? I do! In fact, since our grocery stores suck, it's typically my main grocery

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? Yes! I really need a pepper grinder. A nice pastry cutter would probably get some love too. I'm always down for interesting grains (no quinoa), pastas, or spices. Unusual bean varieties might find some love (I'm a huge bean fan, but my husband isn't. Trying to find ones he'll eat). I have a number of lusts on the King Arthur website - esoteric baking ingredients for the win!

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? Don't know it well enough to say. Non-tacky beach stuff could be cool.

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

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? Cool


9/14/17

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? Pup is a huge fan of treats, balls, and kongs. The other small creature likes building/manipulating toys (think duplos, oversized gears, lock boxes), musical instruments, and farm themed stuff. He's also recently discovered that chalk is a lot of fun and thinks books are the greatest thing ever.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? No

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things) Will have to come back for this. *Edit* Lilith: The Pillory and maybe Wednesday's Child... (again, not actively seeking perfume right now because I have a huge backlog); Puppers: Ella (sounds amazing), Pugsley, Wednesday. I have had my eye on the scoop neck version of the Molly Crabapple shirt for a while.

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? Not really. Although, if there's such a thing as old-school Bard's Tale merchandise, we might have to talk

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? I'm not usually into scarves cause I live in a warm climate, but that leafy one is gorgeous Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy!

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? I do! I particularly like chocolatey and creamy stouts. I don't like hops, so IPAs are a no for me.

Like booze? What kinds? Yes! Rum, gin, and whiskey are my favorites. Interesting syrups and the like are fun too.

Like Wine? What kinds? Red, typically fairly dry.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors! Could be fun!

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies? I hate horror. Though I was talking with my husband about the Addams family movies tonight. Maybe we should start watching those for Halloween. We're both big fans.

9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ I don't do bar soap, but that is a cute store. I'd be up for trying the liquid soap (probably in the refill packaging - I have bottles), the detox scrub, the sugar scrub, and a sample of the deodorant.

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? I like the vintagey look. I'm really not into gorey, kitschy, or horror themed stuff. I don't do too much in the way of cutesy, but wolves, bats, and even the occasional cat are ok.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? Yes, anything that's not too sweet. I admit to liking candy corn in small doses.

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? Nope

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? Never tried it, but I've seen some and thought it looked kind of interesting.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? Yes! Preferably sleek and elegant leaning.

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? ALL OF IT! I love getting a little picture of my witch's home.

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? Every once in a while I look at quarterly (or whatever it's called) and think about it, but it's too pricey. Bark box is similarly too pricey. I gave up on snack boxes because they're hit or miss, and there's a lot of extraneous packaging. I've contemplated My Lit Box. I am 100% on board for grain subscriptions, fancy bean clubs, or other things in the CSA/honey subscription/pantry staples box vein.

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? Probably wouldn't get much use.

How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? I mostly use Slacker, but mp3s and the occasional cd are welcome

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book? Actual book, by far. I feel like I've described my book tastes all up and down this forum, so I won't repeat myself. I will repeat my comment that I don't do horror. At all. Ever.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders? I guess an oil diffuser could be interesting. I don't do incense or wax tarts. I like candles but rarely get around to burning them, so I have a huge back stock. Plus, small climby child + open flames = bad.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? I like this idea in theory but I'm not actually competent at any crafts



9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? I don't know enough about Japan to say

How do you feel about nail wraps? Too much work

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? Cowl or handwarmers would get the most use of cold weather things since I live in the South. Some wool makes me itchy, but I don't buy or use enough knitted stuff to really understand what type. I would use knitted cloths.

If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? I'll have to come back to this one *Edit* I mean, the problem here is that my favorite books aren't very nice to their characters. There's usually some big crisis or quest and, honestly, I'm just not up for that. Maybe an un-named extra from Star Trek. Life seems to be pretty decent in the distant future and there's not much crazy danger if you're not on a star ship. Librarian in charge of ancient histories on an obscure but pleasant planet in the Federation sounds delightful.

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? I'd be curious to see Ancient Rome since I was a Classics major, but I'd probably be the type of person who would have too many concerns about temporal rifts and the like to use said time machine.

If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? Living or dead? I would have liked to have met Oscar Wilde, and I suspect he'd enjoy a good scent. Edgar Allen Poe would either be interesting or disastrous. I think the lab needs a line for NK Jemisin's books, so it'd be interesting to bring her to a MnS.

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best. I do like her stuff. I have several etsy favs from her.

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? Sure! Always love handmade items. I am plus size, though, so maybe a bit more complex.

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? Nothing specific comes to mind, but I do go to ren faire and will likely need a new costume for myself and something for the kiddo. I trend towards the pirate/explorer type costumes.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? I have considered picking up a half dozen crafts and then I either don't or do and suck at it. If you have a suggestion, I'm open to learning!

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? No. I prefer not to own items that have "intent". As I mentioned, I'm superstitious (not quite the right word, but not sure what other word fits). I believe that attempting to control the world in this way has a very high chance of backfiring/having unintended consequences. Similarly, I don't like to do anything that is intended to divine the future - I think it risks influencing the future poorly.

Do you like poetry? Yes

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

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? I don't do any yarn crafts

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? Sure. Community based climate change action and environmental justice could probably use it right now. Net neutrality and health related charities are also high on my list. Refugees and famine victims could also use a hand. There's really too many these days...

Please provide wishes from the last two updates? Will come back to this *Edit* Lilith: Huntress, Brunch Witches; American Gods: Eat the Strawberries. Again, I'm trying to behave myself and not buy new perfume, but, then again, I have never succeeded at that before.

9/9/17

Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/) Huh, not familiar with them, maybe? Probably the bubbling bathing grains. All of the scents looks fine, but the Dust Witch one might trigger some allergies if the smoke/incense notes are dominant.

Are there any UK things you'd like to get? I don't have any easily shippable, uk-exclusive items in mind that I'd like to get. If you're in the UK, then I'm certain that there are uk things that fit my general tastes which I would enjoy, but nothing specific jumps out at me.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? Sorry, no. My media of choice are books and the internet - specifically webcomics, the BPAL forum, the occasional blog (mostly minimalism/simplicity oriented), and, embarrassingly, twitter. I don't do podcasts, tv, or videos on the internet (well, that's not entirely true, my husband can usually get me to watch tabletop, titan's grave, and after hours or obsessive pop culture disorder on cracked).

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/ WOW! I had sworn off buying nailpolish since I mostly don't get around to doing my own nails, but these are amazing. Maybe one? If I were buying for myself, I'd choose an on-sale polish with colors from my favorite clothing (cobalt blue, deep purple, ruby red, emerald green, and/or silver).

9/8/17

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. I do! I lean more towards classic, steampunky, nature oriented, or travel oriented. Not really into the kawaii spectrum. I like practical items!

Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? Never really excited me.
- Or Haus of Gloi? No thanks, not seeing anything I have to have this year.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? Yes! See the thread.

Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like? Not really. I found BPAL through Lush, but I tend to avoid it these days in favor of smaller etailers and more natural products.

9/7/17

Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? I haven't really tried much of her stuff, but I'd be down to try the bubble bath (hooray bubbles!), salt soaks, carpet fresh (any of the fall scents), dusting powder, milk bath, sugarload scrub, and sugar scrubby scrub. Scent wise, I could try *maybe* Bayou Mist, Blackbread and Marmalade, Cinnamon Blackberry Crunch, Late Harvest, all of the Pumpkin scents, *maybe* Smoldering Havana Charmer, Where's My Pie, and *maybe* the Kitchen Witch scents.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences?
- Coffee: whole beans or ground?
- Flavor and roast preferences?
- Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors?
- Loose leaf or tea bags?
- Anything specific you don't like?
- Are you in need of any gadgetry?
I've got a ton of beverages right now, so I'm mostly not looking (which is not to say I wouldn't enjoy them if I got them). Gear wise, I am trying to break the habit of buying bottled cold brew, so I'm definitely on the look out for a nice cold brew pitcher that will fit in my fridge or a cold brew filter that would fit in a separate pitcher without being a pain to store when it's not in use. Nice pitchers or carafes with lids would also be awesome.

9/6/17

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures?
- would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? Hmmm, possibly yes. I don't need BPAL storage cause I've got a great box already, but I do like interesting boxes, pouches, tins, etc.

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks)
- What are your faves if you are?
- If you aren't would you like to try something? Sure, haven't really tried any, but I'm down.

What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever... This is a really amazing question, and I need to think on it a bit. *Edit* To be honest, after much thought, I don't think there is anything. The closest two things are:
1. the number of natural disasters has increased my prepping tendencies a bit. We live in a hurricane prone area, so I'm trying to be prepared without going full bunker. I really wish that preparedness blogging wasn't the province of crazy conservatives and extreme back to the land types. I'd like sane, practical people talking about how to deal with being without power for 3 weeks in a medium size city without a bunker or an urban farm in your back yard.
2. I've started travelling a lot for work, so I've gotten in to figuring out how to make travel more pleasant and healthy. I got a frequent flyer points credit card, I'm *this* close to buying myself a face mask to wear on the plane, and I've started reading Road Warriorette. It's getting weird.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? Whatevs? Don't love it, don't hate it, get a kick out of the recent trend of Velma pin ups.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)? I don't really wear make up much, sorry!

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? [url=https://www.criobru.com/]https://www.criobru.com/

Clothes, a mug, magnets, a plush Snoopy wearing a flight suit? Hubs (Tee? mug? book of cool photos?) & youngest daughter (plushies, books, anything astronaut or planet related) LOVE space stuff.

10/1/17

Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand mmmmmm honey! Candles, creams, etc also sound fun!

Smolder Cosmetics. It looks fabulous, but time consuming. If some of the eye products are easy to use & long lasting, then I would enjoy some silvery toned glitter colors (grey, blue, purple) a good eye liner (black or brown) maybe.

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of? http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store
I like "The Reader" - a full sized print probably would end up languishing so perhaps a bag/case or a card sized picture.
Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. Possibly. If after having read way too much of my likes & dislikes you think I'd like it, then go for it!

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ vanilla bean body butter, vnilla/vanilla coffee lip balms

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? No thank you!

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Tote bags (for groceries) & various sized zippered 9or otherwise closing) pouches for keeping crafty projects in are always VERY welcome!

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Funky clothes, jewelry, bags. And the snacks table.

9/19/17

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? My Thinkgeek wishlist: https://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/account/wishes.cgi?a=d&wid=821e632cd

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

Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know?

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. I'd love to have a Froud (Brian & Wendy) style "faerie" room with wild, exquisite creatures hiding all over the place and natural, wood/forest type colors & furniture.

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

BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) I love getting all sorts of handmade types of things.

9/18/17

socks: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? Yes - fun and funky socks 0r geek themed socks are always great! Everything from footies to thigh highs preferably machine washable. SLIPPER SOCKS with treds would be even more awesome (and socks are always awesome!)

Would you be open to previously-loved books? YES

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

So what are your favorite fandoms? Look at my list of favorite TV shows/movies/books from the Q'aire & that should pretty much cover it. Amazon list & thinkgeek lists will, as well.

9/17/17

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? My girls would adore anything princess or descendants

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? Enjoyed the books and movies, but not an all out Potterhead

How do you feel about chokers? I love the look, but not having something tight around my neck.


9/15/17

Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type? So cute! I could work with either style and BTW - Bats and owls (but esp bats) are my favorite Halloweenish animals.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? Yes - and not so much into pumpkin. Apple pie/Apple cider, etc is more to my taste (scents as well as food)

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
YES! Any cool/unique ingrediants you think I might like are cool. Also, my nut grinder JUST BROKE! **cue copious tears** I add almonds, walnuts & other stuff to meals at least once a day, and this one was so nice with measurements on the glass & totally machine washable.
I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......awwww, that's one of my best friend's favorite places!

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
EEP! That's a toughy, cuz I honestly just love getting a box of surprises. I guess I'll say something edible involving dark chocolate. Chocolate ALWAYS makes me happy.
Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? No thank you


9/14/17

Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? My 2 girls are plenty spoiled, so please don't feel you need to do anything for them. that being said, if you'd like to do something for them, they adore Disney, Disney Descendants, and My Little Pony.

Lucy (turns 9 on 12/31): https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/R16W8NZKQ0PB?&sort=default

9/13/17

Are you a gamer? Nope

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Uhm, I love them all? WASHABLE is very important for my life with kids! And soft soft soft on the neck. The leafy one especially catches my eye, because it's the sort of thing I have yet to find the time to make for myself. Next favorite is probably the chevron.

Like beer? Like booze? Like Wine? My current favorites are Angry Orchard Hard Cider (especially the cinnamon one!) and mead (especially Brother's Drake, which is local. But I'm up for trying new brands.)

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!
Those look really cool! I don't know how often I would wear one, but I love it & would totally find a way to make it work. Blues, purples, burgandies & wines are my favorite colors & my hair is usually medium in length.

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies? I love watching something spooky for Halloween, but am the only one in my family who does. There are a few things on my amazon list. (Best of Celebrity Ghost Stories, Paranormal 5, The Haunting of Hill House *book*, B&W The Haunting, and a number of ghost/paranormal themed books)


9/12/17

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
Maybe a Lavender body oil or lip salve, or a wooden soap dish
What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?
Dark chocolate - esp 70-85% cacoa. Plain or mixed with nuts, coconut, sea salt, or a variety of other things.
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?
If it's a fandom I love - like I have an action figure of Wolverine that sits among my books.
Any zentangle lovers, ?
I probably wouldn't find time to do it myself, but it looks lovely
Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
If you think it goes with a theme, interest or favorite color scheme of mine AND if it is comfortable & easy to use.
What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
All those sound good! drinks that have flavors I mention liking, local crafters or artists, anything that you think I might like!
Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?
I might be interested in one of those box things - something with make-up, nice smelly stuff, or crafting supplies. I have a couple of magazines & yarn/craft clubs mentioned on my amazon list.
Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?
My older daughter seems to like dramatic & magical costumes, and all we have is the very basic, cheap, 4 color face paint kit. Something a slightly higher quality, maybe? OR - for me - a way to wear a gorgeous mask WITH GLASSES. I am half blind w/o my glasses, but no longer have any contact lenses to wear on special occasions (like using my fabulous glamorous mystery masks)
How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?
CD, a local NPR station, and Spotify
Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?
Either, although I will say romance/erotica is best on kindle (unless both cover and title won't cause uncomfortable questions from my kids) and cookbooks HAVE to be actual book. There are many books on my amazon wishlist & I do like some horror - although I can't handle anything bad happening to kids (since I had mine) and I prefer more psychology (and/or paranormal) scares and not much gore.
Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?
I have a wax tart burner/warmer and a scent (oil) warmer. Guy Fawkes (by paintbox soapworks) is my all time favorite fall scent, although I tend to like anything with apple or chai type scents.
Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
I love yarn. And books about crochet, knitting, or sewing projects. And pretty, colored, wooden crochet hooks & knitting needles. I may collect these things. It MIGHT be possible that in some people's estimations I already have too many of these things, but if you ever suggest to anyone that I may have entertained a thought about having too much yarn (etc) I will staunchly deny it. Especially super thick, bulky yarns that are soft and machine washable OR handmade art yarns Or geek-themed yarns and yarn markers . . . . . . .


9/11/17

I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
I have no idea. Except for things like kimonos which would be way too expensive and I'd stare at far more than I'd ever wear.
How do you feel about nail wraps?
I have no nails. I bite them too much.
if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? - would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
Hand warmers, hat, wash cloth - anything you see on any of my wishlists & you'd like to make your own version. No allergies.
If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
River Song from Doctor Who. She's smart, sassy, can totally kick ass, handles the Tardis even better than the Doctor himself, and I WANT HER HAIR!
If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?

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

Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best
Her stuff is so beautiful!
Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
AN infinity scarf is probably easiest to get the size right. I love all sorts of handmade stuff, though
Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? I can't decide what to be. I might use last year's Wonder Woman costume, or do something with my blue cloak, but the big thing would be figuring out how to wear one of my masks without killing myself because the world has gone completely fuzzy without my glasses.

9/10/17

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? I struggle to find time for the ones I have now

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
Maybe tea - for peace, wisdom, or strength
Do you like poetry?
Yes, although I don't manage to sit and read poetry books very often anymore.
Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? LOVE IT! Any of my favorite animals or fandoms/TV/Movie/book characters mentioned would be so cool.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? YES!

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? I am fond of KIVA, Heifer Int'l, and PBS/NPR


9/9/17

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? Love the smell of coffee, not so much into the taste. Tea, on the other hand!
black, green, herbal, flavors? Yes I drink more green and oolong that anything else, but herbals, black, matcha, etc are all good, too. as for flavors - CHAI, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, among others - Loose leaf or tea bags? Either. I use tea bags more than loose leaf, but I have the equipment for both. - Anything specific you don't like? Strangely enough, as much as I like apple pie and orange & spice type flavors elsewhere, Something about apple/orange in tea has a weird after taste that I do not like. - Are you in need of any gadgetry?

I've lost almost 15 pounds over the past 12 months from limiting gluten, dairy & preservatives/chemicals, etc and eating way more veggies than I ever use to eat. I don't stick to it religiously, I let myself have the occasional cake, ice cream, pizza, etc. I keep getting cookbooks from the library to help me find new recipes to try. You'll find some of those on my amazon wishlist.

9/5/17

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? ehn. I enjoyed it for many years as a kid - so if something from the original Hannah Barbara cartoons is mashed up with (or references) something else I'm into that could be cool, but otherwise, not so much.

How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)? If you are a makeup guru (or semi guru) and have something you think would be good for me OR if you or someone you know makes/helps to make it.

I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? I've been interested in this stuff for ages, but have yet to try it.

Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts?

Switch Witch 2017 Q&A Wheee!

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?   I loved the Scooby-Doo with gues stars, especially the Addams Family and Harlem Globe Trotters. Other than that I'm kind of whatever.   How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)?   I almost never wear makeup, but a part of me really wants to make art with it - the colors! The sparkle! The same goes for nail polish, though I am more likely to wear polish than makeup.   Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts? https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1   Those are adorable! I particularly like "Boo Sheet", "Something Wicked" and "Voodoo Queen". They seem to run small in the Relaxed and Ultra, so a medium in relaxed fit and a large in the Ultra sizes   I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/ Interesting, but unless it can be brewed in an espresso machine, I have no way to make it right now. How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? - would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? That sounds lovely! Probably a big box, for when I finally am reunited with my collection.   Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks) - What are your faves if you are? - If you aren't would you like to try something? I don't really do masks, except sometimes clay masks such as Lush has.   What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever... I'm trying BuJo, though I'm sorta kinda stumbling around using it still. Bought an old Singer table sewing machine this year, and an Instant Pot. Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? Candles and the Room sprays, mostly. The spray in detangler. Scents are: Honey Caramel Apple, Conjuring Room, Dusty Attic, Evil Garden, Forever and Ever, Gilded Bat, Late Harvest, Mad Heriot Parlor, Strega.   What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? - Coffee: whole beans or ground? Coffee, ground for home espresso machine, - Flavor and roast preferences? Dark. Some flavored coffees are okay, such as pumpkin spice or caramel, otherwise, not so much. - Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? I like tea, but almost never drink it, except a good chai concentrate. Tazo and Oregon Chai concentrates are the opposite of good. I also enjoy Rooibus - Loose leaf or tea bags? Bags, as I have no tea accessories - Anything specific you don't like? I don't think I've run across anything I can't stand, aside from overly sweet or cinnamon heavy chai concentrates such as noted above. - Are you in need of any gadgetry? I can't think of anything I *need*, though silicone bake mats and spatulas are always nice to have, as are the silicone fruit savers (https://foodhuggers.com/), I have a set and they are *awesome*.   Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.   Oh, gods, I am kind of a stationary slut. I love fancy pens, notebooks and stationary and have been *seriosuly tempted* to get into rubber stamps and sealing wax/stamps. I'm not really into the overly floral stationary that is the default, but filigree borders and some of the simpler gothic headers that can sometimes be found on Zazzle have caught my eye.     Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/)   Dust Witch sounds tasty. Whipped soap is my main source of scented bath product joy, but I couold be tempted into a good body butter. Are there any UK things you'd like to get?   Surprise me? Honestly, I'm not familiar enough with UK stuff to know what to ask for.   Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them?   I listen to many, although not as closely as I used to. Nightvale, Craftlit, The Pacific Northwest stories (Tanis is my favorite), Lore, Myths and Legends, several How Stuff Works series, HIdden Almanac, KUEC...a few others. Hidden Almanac, I think, has a Plague Doctor (Reverend Mord) shirt that's quite nice. Most "fan" merch I really like, though, is online comic related - Gunnerkrigg Court and Girl Genius in particular.   Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?     Lovely, but no   ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/   Oooo, I haven't bought them yet, but I've drooled over many of them   Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? No, thank you - Or Haus of Gloi? The Hex scent in Hair Oil, or Whipped Soap (once whipped soap drops, at any rate)   Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?   Wire jigging, wire wrapping and chainmaille Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?   Sure? For luck, please Do you like poetry?   I like to hear poetry, but not so much reading it   Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?   Oh, yes   Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?   Stitch Diva has some beautiful stuff - the beaded yarn and the Shine combo for two examples   Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?   Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)?   ASPCA or Heifer   Please provide wishes from the last two updates?   "Ego Sum Lux Mundi", "Do All the Good You Can", "Valuable, Powerful and Deserving" from the Lilith Lab update, I prefer decants as I am a dabber. (I bought the Eclipse scents I wanted already - couldn't resist, living in the Full Eclipse band).   9/12/17   Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/   Bar soaps look nice. Any scent will do     What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?   Witches, always witches. Dark fairies are good, too. Spiders and webs. If I never see another zombie, it will be too soon.   9/11/17   I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?   I'm open. I don;t know much about Japan specific things, except I hear there's lots of kit-kat flavors. How do you feel about nail wraps?   I love the idea, but my current job is way hard on my nails, and I don't do much outside of work so they wouldn't get used,   if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? - would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?   I'm sure I'll love whatever you knit me, except mittens. Well, I'd love them, but I would never wear them. No allergies I've run into yet.   If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?   Granny Weatherwax, because she kicks ass. Or else a kelda.   If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?   The future, because I'd like to know... If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?   Anais Nin, Neil Gaiman, Ursula Vernon.   Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best.   Their Halloween stuff looks fun Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?   Oh, yes!   Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?   If it looks good hung on the wall. I don't do much costuming   9/14/17   Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?   I do have furbabies, but they are superfussy about their treats. The pup (he's a malamute/husky hybrid and a beautiful boy) does love bully sticks and trachs. The circular bully sticks last the longest - the others are crunched down in about 5 minutes. He doesn't fetch or play with toys, and the cats are both over ten and don't do much with the toys, either, except the occasional catnip toy. And scratchers. They love scratchers. As for treats, they love Greenies. Only Greenies, other treats just lay on the floor until vacuumed.   Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?   There's a lot to love there...in Halloween Collection 1: Pumpkin 14, Potion n. 113, Blood Bond. In the Resurgence Collection Pumpkin 7, any of the NAlloween blends (except Vanilla Bat), all the curses and all the Vampire Wine & Champagne. Any of the Legends of Horror. I prefer 1ml or 3 ml sizes when possible - I like a lot of variety, but I'm a total dabber and go through scent really slowly. Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)   T-shirts or yoga pants! As far as scented things go - Harvest or Orchards of Hell Room Sprays or Blood Bath from etsy; Hair Loosened and Soiled Mid Orgy, Implacable Beautiful Tyrant, Frankincense Clove or Amber & Patchouli HG from the GC catalogue   9/13/17   Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?- If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?   I used to game a lot, but hardly ever now. I am on Steam as Psuke   How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf
Chevron scarf
Lacy and fuzzy
Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping)
Leafy!
I'm not much of a scarf wearer, but I love a good cowl.   Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?   I like stouts. Not really into hoppy beers. I *love* cider   Like booze? What kinds?   Strega. I love the *hell* out of Strega. Aside from that, I don't really drink much. We do brandy or whiskey for eggnog during Winter holidays, but that's about it.   Like Wine? What kinds?   Port and reds   Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!   I haven't ever worn a hairfall, but I love the look of them so much, I'm seriously tempted to say yes. I'd find an excuse to wear it.   For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?   We do all our horror watching for Halloween - the classic black & whites, The Woman in Black (the original BBC production with Pauline Moran, not the atrocity which is the modern movie), pre-2000's horror (especially 70's and 80's horror). Memorabilia (fan art) from the black & white days would be awesome!   9/26/17   What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?   Hellgate of Ireland Goblin Market Cthulu in Love (I actually own these, but they are in storage ar away and have been for over a year. I miss them)   What are some things you do NOT want to receive?   Peeps, candy corn, mittens...um, I'll fill this in more if I think of anything else.   9/25/17   Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads?   1) Not calendars or day planners. I usually love the art, but I never use them. I *am* trying to get into the bullet journaling habit, so supplies for that are welcome. 2) I don;t particularly care for overly floral stationary. I do like filligree, or cool (gothic/strampuk. art nouveua, Gorey-esque) banners or corner shapes 3) Office supply stores are third in line after book stores and yarn stores as my favorite stores. I especially have a thing for notebooks and pens. Colored post-its are cool, too. Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson   Ooo, nice! I still wish I had gotten the Weenie shirt when it was available. T-shirts, mugs or throws are all fine. I have too many posters already languishing in tubes to wish that on her artwork.   Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/   They have some gorgeous stuff - but most of what I would use costs for more than I would expect my witch spend on me   Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.)   I don't really wear scarves and I never wear mittens, I prefer woven dishcloths to knit/crochet ones, Aside from that - if you make it, I am sure I will love it,   Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?   I try to avoid entering SBUX   anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch.   I love fudge! It will probably last .5 seconds once the family sees it   do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)   I do like spicy foods! The rest of the family, not so much - but that means more for meeee! what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???   Note: I always prefer partial bottles or decants Samhainophobia! Pumpkin Spice Snake Oil Pumpkin Spice Perversion (mostly because it makes me head tilt...so did GBJR and that sent is *awesome*. Odd, but awesome) September Midnight 2017 You Fancy Me Mad Mournful Influence of the Unperceived Shadow Overacuteness of the Senses Violent Gesticulations (also because of serious head-tilt)   Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/   The hat   9/24/17   do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need?   I'm good. Unless they have some of the Prank! artwork, or art from the Telltale Heart of the current Weenies   Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/   Those are absolutely beautiful, and I wish I had someplace to display them   Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?   I kind of love them all, really   would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!)   Not so much for me, but my brother probably would and his birthday is coming up.   Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?   Only for the sake of the cause. Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment?   I totally am, but the only thing I could use in my current situation is more reusable bulk food and produce bags.   9/23/17   Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/   No, thank you   I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but... What kind of crystals would you like?   quartzes, particularly colored or rutilated   Pumpkin or Zucchini bread?   Oooo, pumpkin bread!   What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite?   The kind I can eat   Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.)   That sounds super intense, and my brother and mother would give me endless grief on its smell   Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?   Oooo, yes please! Want some honey from the bees on our property?   Certainly! Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.   Alas, we never really eat jam or jelly How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero.   That sounds really interesting...and I think I'll brave the looks the rest of the house will give me I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating.   I haven't had apple chips in years. Decades, possibly. Sure! Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight. Or how about a couple of pillowcases?   Pillowcases or an art supply bag would be lovely 9/22/17   Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm   That looks tasty do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above?   I only have a shower What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these?   I only use rubber cases on my phone because I drop it way too often, but a new cover for my 7in Samsung Galaxy tablet would be nice 9/21/17   See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc?   Not really into See's Are any witchees into coloring books?   I love them, but never have time to color Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)?   The Nessies! All of them! If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household?   3   9/20/17   Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to?   The only modern musical I care for (aside from the "Once More With Feeling" episode of Buffy) is Hedwig and the Angry Inch. And I have the CD for that. I wouldn't at all mind seeing it live again (I got to see a super intimate production at a club in Santa Fe and *adored it*) I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?   Eve's Big Apple's I-V or the Apple HG's (except the marshmallow) I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there?   Surprise me? Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?   I love the idea, but the only items that catch my eye are more than I expect a witch to spend Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items.   No, I'm not up on those that aren't on etsy, The ones on etsy are in my shop favorites Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get!   Money no object? A serge machine. I'd love to get more into sewing, but I wear mostly knit fabrics. Otherwise - nice hairpin lace loom, a yarn ball winder and swift, a set of nice wire wrapping pliers and a beginners kit for chain maille   10/3/17   Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/   No. I wanted one thing and I've already ordered it,   10/1/17   Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?   I'm always down to support local beekeepers, and possibly a BBQ sauce?   Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)?   Those are gorgeous and make me wish I wore makeup   How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?   Some of the fringier stuff (like Hello Satan or Hello Cthulu) would be fine, otherwise not so much   Would you like to get some favorite recipes?   If they're vegan, sure! I'll give them a try   Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut?   I don't really wear scarves, and knit hats give me mad static hair 9/30/17   Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list   I do like Haus of Gloi, but I already got what I wanted. 9/27/17   How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions Those are very cute, but I have no place to put them.

Q&As

Sorry, I'm not really on social media so I have limited stalkability! My amazon and etsy wishlists are in my signature - please feel free to take anything on those lists as inspiration, don't feel at all restricted to them. My Steam wishlist is somewhere in the answers below if that helps too.

Would you like one of the Teeturtle t-shirts?
I'd only wear them for 'lounge wear', but they're cute for that - especially the Howling at the Moon glow in the dark one! The relaxed M would probably be best for me.

How do you feel about indie makeup?
I've never used it, but I am up for trying. I don't wear much eyeshadow but I'm a blush & highlighter addict.

What are your feelings about Scooby Doo?
Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School was one of my most-watched videos as a kid, but my enthusiasm for SD has since waned.

Would you be interested in trying Criobru?
It sounds interesting, so sure.

How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?
I would love that - my bpals are currently kept in USPS priority mail boxes

Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks): Ive only tried a few things but I love them!
- What are your faves if you are? Sheet masks definitely, essences, high SPFs for the face and anything in cute packaging. I know I like Tony Moly stuff, and Id love to try other brands.

What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever... Running is the big thing Ive gotten into this year.
Ive also started following baseball after seeing the Tampa Bay Rays on holiday. Being in the UK I dont have a particular attachment to any place in the US so I decided to support the Phillies because I like their typeface (then I saw their performance, but Im sticking with them anyway).

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? Coffee: whole beans or ground? Flavor and roast preferences? Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? Loose leaf or tea bags? Anything specific you don't like? Are you in need of any gadgetry?: I drink too much espresso, using a stove top moka pot, and I love trying new coffees - whole beans ideally. As far as flavour/roast, the richer & stronger the better! I also love tea, all teas but Russian Caravan is my favourite - I love smokiness. I like both loose leaf and bags, so I can choose depending on my laziness level. I think I have the gadgetry I need, and I definitely don't need any more espresso cups (I have approx. 2 million).

Are you a Moonalisa fan? Never heard of it before, but the stuff looks nice!

Are you interested in Coco Pink or House of Gloi? I don't think so.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? As beautiful as they are, I wouldn't use one - I don't really do non-chrirstmas decorations.

Are you interested in FuturePrimitive? How haven't I seen this site before?! I love the look of the whipped body butters and the bath grains - v. much up my street.

Lush Halloween collection? Looks brilliant, and I do like Lush.

Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? I only listen to a few podcasts, and I don't think there's much merch associated with them - Frank Skinner, The Cycling Podcast, We're No Doctors w/ Busy Philips, Desert Island Discs, Geoff Lloyd.

ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? I bite my nails, so polish is out

Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, for what purpose would you want it to be made?
That would be cool! I'm enjoying using TALs so something like this would be nice. As for purpose, anything to do with creativity or motivation/discipline would be most useful.

Do you like poetry? I like a few poets, mostly the metaphysical poets and I love Philip Larkin's work. I usually *hate* hearing poetry recited though.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? I do! Although I'm not sure what a custom repaint is, but if it falls in the same category as stuffed animals I'm sure it's good.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? I don't knit (yet) so yarn wouldn't get much use

Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? That would be lovely

Is there anything you want from Japan? ​Any interesting stationery, fun little gadgets, all the stereotypical stuff!

How do you feel about nail wraps? As above, I don't use nail stuff

If you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? A cowl or handwarmers would be great, I don't wear hats. As for colours, I like grey, orange, navy, green.

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

If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? Victorian London has always appealed, especially the shady backstreets!

Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? Not for me

Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ The body oil and scrubs look nice

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? I'm easily creeped out by dead/demonic faces so I'd rather stay away from that. I do like cute ghosts, anything to do with the moon, bonfires.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? I do, and it would!

Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? I love a good paperweight!

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders? Candles are always welcome. I haven't had a tart burner for years and I would really like one. I've got an essential oil diffuser.

Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?
I only play games casually these days- I don't have a console or a PC, just a MacBook Pro, and I always have to quit WoW because I can't play in moderation! My main game these days is Stardew Valley, I've seen some adorable SDV merch around and would love anything to do with it! I also love the Elder Scrolls series and would be very happy with any related merch.
My steam wishlist is here, it's in a random order. The main games I want to play are Factorio and Rimworld: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198014409053/wishlist

How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf - The blue is really nice Chevron scarf - I already have one similar Lacy and fuzzy - I prefer thick, warm scarves! Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) - Nice! Leafy! - Not for me

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? - No, it's largely vile. I do like Hoegaarden and Duvel, but I'd never choose them over other alcohol.
Like booze? What kinds? I'm a big gin fan (and I liked it before it was cool ) - as long as it's not Bombay Sapphire I'm happy. I also like cider, especially Normandy type ciders and ones meant for mulling. Thistly Cross is my favourite cider maker.
Like Wine? What kinds? I do! I mostly drink red, anything with savoury or smoky notes are a hit for me. I also like prosecco (who doesn't?)


Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors! I don't tend to wear anything in my hair, so not for me.

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies? I don't watch horror because I'm too easily freaked out. The nearest thing to horror that I do watch is one of my favourite films - What We Do in the Shadows.

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things) Definitely! Trading post shipping is a little prohibitive so I don't think I'm going to be able to get these: Pa-Pow, Pickle & Elland hair glosses, and
from Fatherhood:
A Cute Kid
Morning in the City of Angels
My Little Themysciran Princess
Spinning on Graves
Wednesday's Child is Full of Woe

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? I love to do both! I could really do with a new wooden spoon and a chopping board. I also love to get unusual spices, extracts etc to play with - infused sugar is always nice, and anything rose/Violet/lavender (I was born an old lady, apparently).

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice. Hmm... I've been looking at snow globes this morning, so maybe one of those!

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? Sure!

Favorite gemstones? Opal, amber, sapphire (of all colours, I like to drool over the natural sapphire company site), emerald.

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? A bit of all of those options, really! I've out some jewellery on my etsy wishlist for an idea of the sort of style I like.

Any love of pirates or SCA? Not particularly I'm afraid

Is there anything you would like from Disney World? I LOVE all Disney World merch! I was there in June and didn't do half as much shopping as I wanted... The shadow boxes are really cool but pretty pricey, I love all the snow globes (I bought the It's a Small World one ), and all the dinnerware & cooking stuff. My favourite rides/shows at DW are the Haunted House, Tower of Terror, Mt Everest and more than anything - The Enchanted Tiki Room!

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? I'm mildly into HP, apparently I'm a Slytherin.

How do you feel about chokers? Very uncomfortable!

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? I've actually just recently started looking into this, I find tarot very interesting. I'm an uber beginner so very up for books about anything - and I only have digital tarot so a real pack would be lovely.

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? I would love either!

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? I do wear socks! Usually crew or ankle length for regular wear, but u *love* fluffy socks for wearing in bed - my feet are permanently cold

Would you be open to previously-loved books? I would!

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? Definitely!

So what are your favorite fandoms? I'm not sure I'm into any fandoms, I don't like star wars, star trek, game of thrones etc. I do like Disney and I saw that might be classed as a fandoms?

Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com
I need these Parks & Rec vinyl figures in my life: url="http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/kgpt/?srp=1"]http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/kgpt/?srp=1[/url]. Also, anything from the Star Watcher section of the site - I started a wishlist but it was basically just that whole section, especially the glow in the dark calendar!

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? I don't think I mentioned that I love maps. Old maps, fictional maps, maps on prints, tea cloths, clothes, jewellery, anything! And I might not have mentioned how much I love baths - baths for me usually last about an hour (it may be a reason I still haven't decided whether I want kids, can't bear the thought of disrupted bathtime...) and I love all bubbles, oils, fizzes, anything to go in a bath!

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. I'd love a night sky themed room, with tiny spotlights all over the ceiling for stars.

Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? I do, and I would! It would be for cooking.

Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to? I want to see Hamilton and Book of Mormon, I'm not sure what merch there is for those, tjough

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm through Mannahatta or Broadway would be amazing!

I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? I can't think of anything in particular

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)? The animal treasure boxes are adorable! And the greetings cards are really nice too.

Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items. I've loved hannahzakari.co.uk for years (and currently covet the Relatively Stable pin). And copying off another witch's answer, I'd now love to try http://www.devonshireorganics.com incense - I really want my house to smell like the Vatican!

Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get! I would buy a big canvas original painting with either a cityscape, a map, or the night sky on it (or one of each), something from offermanwoodshop.com (the man himself would be at the biggest craft show imaginable, I assume!), a handmade ring with a big old natural sapphire, and an unusual pendant.

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

do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above? I think I mentioned above that I take a lot of baths - I love all of the above! Anything that smells good.

What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these? I have an iPhone SE and a 13" Macbook Pro. I'd really like a laptop case as it's getting scruffy, and I change my phone case often so I'm always up for a new one. I don't have a tablet, but I do have a kindle paperwhite. --Something I would love, is some cool new wallpapers for my macbook - I like space, landscape & arty wallpapers

Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/ We don't have this in the UK and I've always ignored it because I assumed the scents would be overly sweet and fruity. It looks like I'm totally wrong! The following scents sound great to me, in candles, bath stuff or body lotion/oil:
Lavender & Cedarwood
Eucalyptus & Spearmint
Leaves
Marshmallow Fireside
Sweater Weather
Flannel
Lavender
Birch & argan body oil
Rose water body oil

I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but...
What kind of crystals would you like? Whatever looks good! I don't know much about crystals

Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? Not for me, I'm a bit weird when it comes to bread (has to be eaten on the day it's baked, or frozen then grilled when needed)

What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? white chocolate and/or honey!

Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.) That sounds heavenly divine - I love muscle rubs and need them too!

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur? I am beyond interested and am desperate to try both! Lavender liqueur, oh my goodness.

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

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. If it travels in the post ok, definitely! Rose petals would be amazing, and cherry & strawberry are always great

How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. Ooh, yes

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

Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight.
Or how about a couple of pillowcases? I can't have enough totes or pencil cases so either of those would be very much appreciated

do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need? I haven't figured out what do with them yet but I like them a lot and would like more! No particular hankering, but I do love hhe Carnaval Diaboliques.

Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ They're lovely! I particularly like In the Land of the Hanging Heart Cages.

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? Foxes! It's pretty much guaranteed that I'll love anything fox-related. Jack Russells, greyhounds & whippets, tuxedo cats, bears, goats, sharks, capybaras. I don't think there are any mythological creatures I particularly love.

would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!) No thanks, I think I only know one of their songs *blush*

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)? Yes! Either. Take a Knee doesn't appeal to me as a scent as apple pie can go very wonky on me (though I love grass/earth notes) but I very much support the cause so I'd love a bottle anyway.

Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment? My life is both complicated and plasticky, unfortunately, so I wouldn't use anything in this area.

Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson Yes, they're lovely! I particularly like the Unkindness of Ravens illustration, on anything.

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? Yes, both!
If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? I like anything that looks reasonably modern - from minimalist to crazy patterns, as long as it isn't 'grandmother floral' type stuff I'm very happy
What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads? Yes please! Love all stationery.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/ I love the animal bottle toppers! And the origami set looks very cute.

Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, felted, chain maille, scale, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) dishclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Colors? (Duct tape, chain maille, and scales come in colors.) I'd love any of those things except a hat. Any autumnal colours would be grand.

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun? I don't collect any Starbucks stuff, but I've had my eye on heir flasks for a while - last time I was in there was a very tempting glittery gold one. Bearistas sound adorable.

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch. As long is it will survive the journey - I love fudge! Chocolate or butterscotch would be amazing.

do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker) Love spicy foods, they look very good.

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
Day of Skulls
La Calavera Catrina
October***
The Witch Bride
Dead Leaves, Bourbon, Black Cherry & an Orange Twist**
Dead Leaves,Violet Candy & Sugar Crystals***
Stealthily, Stealthily
Suspicion of Foul Play

I'm a bit giddy about the dead leaves & Violet Candy combo, two of my very favourite notes! I'll only be getting them myself if weenies hang around until November (this is my first year of being into bpal so I'm not sure), as October is taken up with SW and fun car stuff.

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? Mitts, hat, shawls, unicorn... http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/ The jacinto mitts and the unicorns!

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs? The Governess, Vial of Holy Water and a back-up bottle of my beloved Hesiod's Phoenix

What are some things you do NOT want to receive? Anything likely to go mouldy in the post - I have an irrational fear of this after a bad lost luggage experience!

is there anything from here that you might be interested in getting a print (or pillow/make-up case/etc) of?
http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store LOVE The Reader and The Swan! I'd be happy with either of those on anything

Claire's has some super cute Halloween stuff. In the style of Haunted Mansion - black lace collars, lace and sparkle masques and the like. A few items in Dias de los Muertos style. Would you be interested in such things? No thank you

Would you be interested in anything from Orange Thyme? https://shoporangethyme.com/ If so, which products/scents/flavors? Ooh, Rosemary Mint body butter. And the orange clove lip balm sounds nice too!

How do you feel about these little guys? I think they're adorable and kind of want them all, but especially the ghost and pirate ones. https://lovemomiji.c...imited-editions I love Golden Treeson!

Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list: I've never tried Haus of Gloi before but I like the sound of Blood Orange Marshmallow, The Horseman, Grimoire, Spider's Silk & Hex in whipped soap or bathing dust.

Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market? I love honey and things made from it, love hot sauce, love scented candles, so any of that would be great!

Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com I don't think so. I'm always tempted by matte lipstick but I tend to find it uncomfortable.

Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)? The eyeshadows look nice but I'm only drawn to the boring shades so it's probably not worth it for me.

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff? I'm fine with HK, not a particular fan but I like anything cute!

Would you like to get some favorite recipes? I love recipes, so yes please!

Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut I can't see anything in there for me at the moment.

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/:
I would love:
Abandoned Theatre atmosphere spray
Autumn Cider Hair Gloss
I Foamed! I Raged! I Swore! Hair Gloss
Dead Leaves & Burnt Marshmallow Hair Gloss

Would any witchees be interested in NASA swag? I'm now super-close to Marshall Space Flight Center and will be visiting the space center with my kiddo pretty regularly. If so, what would you like? Clothes, a mug, magnets, a plush Snoopy wearing a flight suit? Yes! A plush snoopy would be fabulous, a mug would be great, or anything really. I've been to Kennedy Space Centre once but I didn't do nearly enough shopping

Does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I LOVE their Jack and the Devil. http://www.solsticescents.com/ Another retailer I've never tried! The Burnishing Glaces sound gorgeous, in Foxcroft, Heat of the Night or Witches Cottage. And the perfume oils in Cliffside Bonfire, Conjure, Fires in the Night, Gibbon's Boarding School, High Noon, Library... (let's just say anything from the entire Ambers & Woods section).
