Switch Witch 2015

Have you read The Martian? Or do you plan on watching the movie? I have not read it. My husband & dad both want to go see it, so I assume I will. I haven't even seen a proper trailer for it to be honest, just a promo type one that tells you nothing about the movie.

NaNoWriMo - Pertaining to that, how does everyone feel about such things? Will anyone be participating? How about NaNo swag, is there any you want? I don't know anything about this, & I'm really not a writer.

Honey or beeswax products? Discuss. Sure.

How do you feel about bumper stickers and car magnets? What do you like--cute, pretty, snarky, geeky/fandomy? Bumper stickers will get put on my jewelry traveling boxes. I'm down for car magnets. I've had the "I <3 <3 the Doctor" one on there for forever. I like geeky fandoms ones & ones that have to do with my favorite bands. (Right now I have decals for the Dead Kennedy's, the Misfits, Tina from Bob's Burgers, a Companion Cube, & a Big Daddy from Bioshock. However, the companion cube & Big Daddy are black & are hard to see, so I'd be down for replacements.) With all that being said, I like any cool stickers, decals, or bumper stickers. They get put on the clear cases I put my jewelry in to travel to art shows.

Do you have any phobia's that your Witch should be aware of? Worms & caterpillars. I hate them.

Trading Post Weenies are live! Anything calling to you? I should not have looked at these. Not going to buy. Not going to buy. So the one's I like are: Boo hairless, brainstem lollipop, dead leaves black fig cacao & copal hair gloss, dead leaves red musk & neroli hair gloss, dead leaves white musk & vanilla hair gloss, delayed at Ingolstadt air field home & linen spray, & the pins are super cute. Also, I hate pumpkin, but how cool are those pumpkin labels?

Speaking of nail things, it that time of year and I am doing my jamberry order, Would you want some Lovely Jamberry's for your nails? Those things are so cute, but they don't stay on my nails at all.

Do you like or want to try Marmite? I've tried it & I don't want it.

Used nail polish & cosmetics? I'm good with used nail polish. I may be a bit of a hoarder. I'm good with used cosmetics if they fit with my color scheme. I don't want used eyeliner or mascara.

How does everyone feel about duct tape crafts? Any favorite patterns? I'm not really sure what this is. I don't think it's particularly up my alley.

Are there any flowers you especially like? I'm more of a succulent & cactus kind of girl. Flowers always die on me.

Would you be interested in any cozies or cases (yarn o fabric, not hard cases) for tech stuff (phone, laptop' etc) or for cups/mugs/bottles or anything else similar. A beer bottle or beer can cozy would be rad.

Would you like Halloween or Day of the Dead themed ornaments or a "bunting"? Sure.

What songs/music/artists/CD's do you like to listen to around Halloween? Pretty much the same music I always listen to. The Misfits probably get a little more play time during October.

Are you interested in leg warmers at all? I think they're super cute, but no thanks. Heat.

Is your Halloween style scary, cutesy, folksy, grotesque . . .? It has always been scary & gory, but I'm finding that I'm not so much into that anymore. It's weirding me out & making me feel old. I have no idea what my new style is going to be, but I think the severed body parts & nooses may not go up this year...

Here's a new question: I make handmade journals, mini albums and similar items. Would my witchee be interested in something like that? ( I would be willing to barter with someone else who's witchee might like something like this) Your journals are GORGEOUS. SO much, that I would be afraid to write in them & they would probably sit blank somewhere forever & it would be a damn shame. I think a put a few of your boxes on my wishlist though.

Are you a slatherer or a dabber? I tend to be a slatherer due to my less than perfect sense of smell.

Talk to me, dear witchies, about tea. I know we've covered this a little, but I really need the nitty gritty here- not just companies you like and don't like (Teavana? Adagio? David's? Some tiny place?) but I also want to know the other stuff: top 3 flavors, loose or bagged, the kinds of tea accessories you use- or have always wanted. Be specific. Provide links if necessary. I really do love all tea. The only way to go wrong is Jasmine tea & some chai teas. I have a glass boiler pot, & one of those handy dandy steepers that sits on top of my teacup that I use often. I also have a couple steeper balls for company. I also have an iced tea maker, which usually uses up my teabags & sometimes the loose tea. I have some tea related goodies on my wl, but they are spendy.

Is there anything from ThinkGeek that you want??? (especially in the geek points section, 2400 points or under?) I LOVE ThinkGeek. The Mario mushroom baking pans are adorable & the large ice cube maker (both the deathstar & the d20) look like they would work amazingly for whiskey.

Scarves, shawls or cowls? Mittens, gloves, fingerless mitts or wristlets? Probably none or me.

how do you feel about online classes? Like, say, craftsy or creativebug? Or even lynda.com? I probably wouldn't have the time.

What do we want from Paintbox Soapworks? I've only used their soap samples, but I liked them. Everything except the solid perfume sounds awesome.

If I were to make you some art, would you prefer a frame that hangs or one that sits? And what color/style would you prefer? Something that goes on the wall for sure. As you can see from my art wall, I don't have a specific color or style of art that I adhere to.

How do you feel about gourmet marshmallows? Those look pretty amazing.

Did you see the eclipse last night? How do you feel about astrological events, like eclipses? Any interest in the Blood Moon Eclipse scent from BPAL? I was not in a great place to see it last night, so it was sadly missed. Blood Moon sounds decant worthy for sure.

Witchee's, how tall are you? And perhaps, what's your arm span (from wrist to wrist)? I'm about 5'2" & seem to be about 4'8" with my arms down or 4'6" with my arms horizontal to the ground from wrist to wrist. However, I did make that measurement myself, so yeah.

How do you feel about the 4 elements? Or are you more of an Asian 5 elements person? Do you feel strongly about any of the elements, like a connection or a preference? I'm not particularly familiar with the chinese elements, but I've always felt I was a fire/water person. With that being said, I certainly can't say I feel strongly about the subject.

Office supplies hound? Pens, pencils, journals, any preference, or favorites? Not really.
Talk to me about socks! Is there anything, dear, dear Witchee, that I can get for you from Sock Dreams? Anything from another place? I'm not super familiar with sock dreams, but I do love socks. I don't wear knee socks, but anything in the footie or anklet range would be cool.

I live near a huuuuge candy store. What kind of candy do you like? Gummies? Caramel? Chocolate? Sour? Sugar-free? Nothing specific. I'd be happy with whatever you pick out.

How do you feel about animal products? Not so much animal toys or food, but more like furs, paws, bones, etc. No thanks.

Are you interested in receiving any restaurant.com gift certificates for your area? Not particularly.

How do you feel about "toys" - stuffed animals and the like? I like handmade plushies, artist inspired plushies, uglydolls, & vinyl toys.

We asked about decorating style, but are you interested in receiving decorations for your home? Are you interested in things that go on the wall or things that go on shelves?
I'd be down for house decorations. I'd most likely have the most space for small art/prints for my art wall.

Do you like tarts/candles/incense? If so, what type of scents? Tarts. I always forget to light candles & can't really do incense with the hubs allergies. I'm good with anything that's not too musky.

Is there anything you wish you could have picked up from the Dragon*Con exclusives? Yes, there were quite a few that caught my eye. I missed those completely because I was moving & traveling.

Is there a GC you've been dying to try but haven't got around to yet? There are several in my wishlist that I have imps or partial imps of. I haven't gotten the chance to explore a whole lot of the GC catalogue. Im open to any suggestions you may have that fit into my general scent profile.

For those of us with out-of-country Witchees, would you be happy with receiving a few packages from local to you merchants (say, through Etsy or equivalent)? I'll be happy with anything that you are so kind to send me.

Would Witchees like something from IKEA? (Or any other not always accessible by everyone store?)No thanks, I'm set on IKEA. I would not be opposed to other stores not accessible to me.

I also have a question: Do you receive any subscription boxes (julep, lootcrate, ipsy, birchbox, etc.)? I subscribe to Rainbow Honey & Sephora Play!.

Last Huzzah of the NY Renaissance Faire: is there anything you might want? I love renfaires. When I go I usually buy soap, food, & beer. I'm certainly down for whatever you think I might like.

Do you like comics or graphic novels? Any issues or collections you want to read? I've read them, & I always want to like them more than I do. It's not totally my thing.

Do you like fanfic? Would you like a story written for you as part of your gift? What characters/fandoms/pairings etc do you like? I've never read fanfic, but if you were yo write something for me I would definitely read it.

Let's say you have indicated interest in receiving a hand knitted item. What colors, exactly, do you like? If you could provide color swatches here or to pinterest (or something visual), that would help out a lot. I have a hard time with generalizations, like if someone says "topaz". To me, a topaz is a golden brown. But some people are thinking of the blue topaz... or they can be colorless. Or red. or pink. or gray. for the things I've expressed interest I yarn wise, I'm good with absolutely any color.

Would you rather receive a bunch of little packages through the round, a couple of medium packages, or one big package at the end? I'd honestly rather spread out the fun, but I won't be disappointed if it's easier for you to do one at the end.

If/when you go to the mall, for which store(s) do you beeline? I'm not a huge mall person, but I guess when I do end up at the mall, I go to Torrid, Target, Nordstrom, Sephora, L'Occitane.

Blu-ray or DVD? both

Game systems - console or computer? Mac/PC? Which console? console mostly - nes, super nes, nintendo 64, gamecube, wii, sega genesis, xbox 360, ps1, ps2, & ps3. I have a MAC, but don't really play games on it.

Are you dressing up for Halloween and if so do you need any accessories for if? I will be, but I don't know what I'll be.

Talk to me about bags, what kinds do you like? Sizes and styles? I'm a sucker for a bag with cool hardware. I'm mostly into handbags & shoulder bags. I have a few crossbodies that don't get used that often. I guess my small backpack is getting holes too. I like solid colors. I don't like the suitcase sized ones, but they have to be big enough to fit my massive sunglasses case.

What are your favorite fandoms and do you want to receive anything related to such? Sure. Bob's Burgers, IT Crowd, Dr. Who, Portal, Bioshock, The Dead Kennedy's, The Buzzcocks, The Ramones

What's your favorite scary movie? Or movies, either way. If you don't like horror, what are your favorite movies to watch this time of year?
The Shining, A Tale of Two Sisters, The House on Haunted Hill, Pan's Labyrinth, Hocus Pocus, & The Craft.

What items from the Weenie update interest you?
In order of interest:
Graveyard Dirt Redux
The Witches' Rout (The Carcass)
Satan Starting from the Touch of Ithuriel's Spear
Apple III
Dead Leaves, Red Musk, & Neroli

Make-Up? Yes. I wear highly pigmented neutral eyeshadows, black liner, black mascara, & red lipsticks. I don't really wear glosses. I don't wear blush very often. Also, I'm super pale.

Chocolate? Also yes. I love dark chocolate & milk chocolate. I like it plain or with stuff in it. For stuff you can get at the supermarket, I'm not really a fan of nestles & hershey, but I do like cadbury & ritter sport. My favorite chocolates are these little violet truffles I get at a place in town.

Many Halloween items? I do love Halloween. I'd be happy with whatever you send.

"Special little thing" from the Great Lakes Bat Festival? I'm unlikely to wear a t-shirt or baseball hat out of the house, but the button & the decal are both super cute!

What is your BPAL "Holy Grail"? In terms of something I'm never going to see again & don't have a backup for, Nocturnus. My out of print current favorite that I do have a backup for is Red Moon 2007. Even though I have a backup, I would not be opposed to traces you may not want...

What scents from other perfume companies are you really wanting to have in your collection and or are just really wanting to test? Companies like NAVA, Arcana, Solstice Scents, Possets, Haus of Gloi etc.....? I don't have any specific wants, but I'm open to experimentation. I have a few I like from Arcana, Villaness, & Possets. I don't remember which one it is, but the house that uses and Egyptian spice base (in any of the ones I've tried anyway) doesn't agree with me.

Analog or Digital? Or Both? For books, I'm a paper girl. I don't even have a kindle/nook dealie. For music, whatever is fine. If it's a cd it gets ripped into my computer. I also love vinyl.

Do you have an affinity for any specific animals?
Cockatiels & pugs, because they're my buddies. I also like spiders, owls, & harpy eagles.

Kitchen Needs or Wants: Do you need (or want) anything for your kitchen, either in the way of simple gadgets, supplies you always run out of, or never remember to get, kitchen decor (functional or purely decorative), or dry goods like special spices or spice blends?
I'm not really a gadget person, but I'm open to try anything. I love local spice blends or just cool ones. I cook a lot.

What kinds of things would you like from the Lilith BPAL or BPTP update (or are you joining a decant circle?) I don't think I'll be doing a Lilith decant circle this time. The BPAL ones that sound nice to me are: Blood and Judgment so Well Commeddled, Little Lady Macbeth, & Muse of Fire. The BPTP ones that sound nice are: Catch me, dad (actually this one sounds amazing - edit I bought a half bottle. I have no willpower.), Once upon a time, & the worst pillow.

Do you want to received knit or crocheted items? If so, could you describe or even link to a couple of items similar to what you would like to receive? I love mostly non-wearable crocheted items. I have a few scarves from forumites that I love, but it's so hot here I don't get to wear them often. (We don't have a proper winter.) Things that will get use are socks or non-wearables, like amiguri or other such shelve sitters.

Would you like anything from Lush? Sure. I just recently re-discovered lush thanks to another swap. I was horrified to hear they had discontinued ultra violet! I like the bath melts/bombs/etc & the masks for sure. I'm not a solid shampoo or a massage bar person. Everything else is fair game.

Do you prefer hand-made or store-bought? The answer to this is almost always handmade, but I'm good with whatever. I don't snub the store bought stuff.

SPICY! Scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being "oh, that's a bit too much black pepper for me" and 10 being "ghost pepper? scorpion pepper? I laugh at these! I love as much heat as you can throw my way!" Where are you? I dunno, a 6? I like spicy as long as it doesn't kill my tastebuds & make it so I can't taste my food.

Wishlists - Mine are at the bottom of my blog entry that is linked in my signature. They are fairly massive. My family lives by the wishlist. Don't be frightened. I don't expect you to buy anything off of them.

I know there is a question about "decorating style", but if you're comfortable, could you should us some photos of your spaces? For those of us who like to art and craft, it can be nice to have a visual sense of decorating style!
Pictures of my living space sans boxes, because the boxes are still in the bedroom & studio.

For those of you who don't drink alcohol, can you specify if you live with any drinkers or ever have alcohol on hand for guests, vs. abstaining and preferring not to have it around at all?
I'm a drinker.

Are you a fan of the TV show Penny Dreadful?
I've never really watched it. I don't have cable. I'm restricted to what I see on Netflix, Hulu, & Amazon.

What are your coffee and tea preferences? Do you prefer one, the other, both, or neither (and if it's neither, what about things like hot cider and cocoa)? Loose leaf or bags, whole bean or ground? Is caffeine OK? Any gadgetry you're in need of? Any brands or flavors that you particularly love, loathe, or want to try?
​I like both. I drink both regularly. I'm not a hot cider or cocoa drinker for the most part. I'm good with whatever kind of tea, but I prefer loose leaf. The only tea I don't like is Jasmine. blech I prefer whole bean on the coffee. I like everything except blonde roasts. I usually either make it by pour-over or french press. We also have a lazy Kuering (I have no idea hot to spell that) machine that gets a lot of use from the hubs in the mornings. Caffeine is requested. I kinda think decaf is a waste. My favorite brand of Tea is David's Tea, but I certainly love trying new ones. On coffee, as long as it's actual beans & not the instant junk, I'm usually pretty happy.

What's your sense of humor like? Do you enjoy puns? Play on words? Dirty humor? Dry humor? Who are some of your favorite comedians?
I am not a fan of puns. I'm usually the groaner in the room when they happen. I'm good with almost any other kind of humor. I tend to be a bit on the dry side myself. A lot of my favorite movies are dark comedies. Dirty humor doesn't bother me at all. I'm not generally a stand up comedian show kinda girl, but I like Mitch Hedberg, Amy Schumer, Fred Armisen, & I'm sure more that I can't think of right now.

Do you like board games? If so, which ones? Traditional or more unique? (like Settlers of Catan, Small World, Red Dragon Inn, etc)
I'm a board game fiend. I like the unique ones for the most part, but don't mind the plain jane ones every once in a while. If you want an idea of the types of things I am playing right now, I currently have some listed in my Amazon wl.

Is there anything that you specifically do NOT want to receive? Honestly, jewelry.

Plain or fun socks? I love socks. I prefer the fun ones even though they mostly get covered up by boots.

Name one (or as many as you would like) thing you would like to learn more about? I love reading about psychology & philosophy (particularly existentialist texts.) I love learning about new places & cultures.

What one thing you would like to do more of? Relax. Between running a business, moving, & traveling to see family, I have had almost zero relaxation time in the past couple of months.

Would you like any cookie butter (just to be clear, store-bought, not home-made, and does contain wheat since it's, y'know, cookie butter)? It's totally not my thing, but the hubs loves it.

Question!: Is there any particular piece (or pieces) of art (painting, photograph, etc) that speaks to you in some way? So bizarrely enough, my answer is exactly the same as Neptuneanblues'. It's one of my favorite places, & I used to spend hours there at a time.

Yellowstone- I've never been, but since huckleberry has the word berry in it, I would probably love it.

Booze - I think it's obvious where I stand on booze.

beer - I like everything but pilsners, but the hubs likes those.
liquor - I like pretty much everything that isn't saccharine sweet. I'm mostly into whiskey, bourbon, cognac, & vodkas. I like a good anejo tequila too, though.
wine - I'm more of a dry red wine person. I like some whites, like Sav. Blancs & viogniers. I also like port. MMM port.
Pumpkin - I like things actually made with pumpkin. I don't like pumpkin spice or pumpkin flavored things.

13 Nights of Halloween swap questions

2015 questions:   No disappointments with or without Halloween things.   Would you be interested in gently used BPAL tees going back several years and/or 80s/90s goth-industrial-generally morbid tees all in crew neck/Men's style, size M - L, all black or dark gray?

I don't know about the extension universe, but I love Star Wars.   How extensively have you sampled the Lab's Weenie wares? Any past releases you are dying to get your hands on? Years you missed? Weenies are sometimes hit or miss for me. I LOVE the idea of them. I have a tester of smut, which I love.   GC & easily found desires: TKO 51 Shanghai Zombi   Oh, and I have a question: In books, movies, art, etc., are there any common horror themes (demonic possession, clowns, serial killers, spooky/evil children, zombies, insect infestations, mutilation, etc.) that you really don't want to see? I am not a fan of torture or rape. I don't like the saw movies. I love horror movies, but honestly I prefer psychological thrillers over boo gotcha or slasher flicks.   Wishbones? I don't have a preference either way as long as it's not a real wishbone.     I love to cook. I don't bake often. I love Halloween everything.     What I look forward to for fall: Cool weather!

If so do you prefer sweet/savory or both? Yessiree. I like both sweet & savory, but am also in the not meat camp.   Do you prefer light lotions or thick butters and do you like scented or unscented? I'm good with both. I use them at different times.   Do you like small crossbody bags? Yes, as long as they are minimally patterned.     favorite stuff: Bob's Burgers, IT Crowd, Dr. Who, Portal, Bioshock, pugs, owls, monsters (of any sort), The Dead Kennedy's, The Buzzcocks, The Ramones, Kathleen Hannah, tattoos, torches, & vintage oddities.   coffee: I'm good with ground or beans & I also have a keurig dealie, so those work too. I like all kinds of coffee except blonde.   soap: I'm mostly a soap person, but I take shower gel when I travel, which is often. I'm not a huge fan of glycerine soap, but if it looks cool enough or smells amazing, then I tend to make an exception.   Is there an item that you would like but you never seem to buy for yourself as other things often take preference (darn those bills)? My wish lists are filled with the things that I put in my shopping cart & move over to the wish lists instead of pushing the "checkout" button.   If you listed you like books: what kind of books? What are your favorites? Do you also like the "English classics"? Are there any books or writers that you really don't like? I like most books. My favorites are those with philosophical or psychological undertones. I'm good with fiction or non-fiction. I like English classics; I own a lot of them, though. I don't prefer cheesy romances, westerns, or military/war themed books.   What are your favorite musicians, favorite singers or bands? Anything or anyone you really don't like? I covered a huge range of genre's in my survey, but my favorite artists are The Dead Kennedy's, The Buzzcocks, & The Ramones. I'm not a fan of pop, country, rap, or modern radio rock. There are exceptions to most of those rules though.     Tea: I like all tea except for jasmine tea. My go to is David's tea, but I'm certainly open to trying anything you have in mind     Dearest swappee, have you seen the launch of this year's Yankee Candle Boney Bunch line as well as other Halloween items from there? Are there any you'd particularly like to get? The adorbs tart warmer? The taper candle holder, perhaps? I had not seen it, but wow those are stinking cute, like all of them. I am bad at remembering to burn candles, but fabulous about switching on a wax warmer. I love the wax melt/warmer related items.   If you have any Chaos Theory bottles on your wishlists, would you mind getting bottles on several days of this swap? If you listed wearables - what sizes? Are your forearms skinny or bulky? Nope I'm good with multi-day bottles. I wear xl clothing & size US 6 feet. I think my forearms are fairly average. I'm definitely curvy & not skinny     What kind of items would you like to get that are not available in your country? I'd appreciate anything really. Of course snacks.   Yarn wearables: I'm good with yarn as long as it's not too warm. I live in a HOT city.   How do you feel about home baked cookies? Is there anything that should be left out (nuts, milk, eggs, gluten, etc)? How do you feel about recieving pens? If you like them, do you have a prefered stroke size (ie: do you prefer a thick or fine stroke)? Any prefered colors (assume the sky is the limit here)? I love home baked cookies. I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal, but everything else is fair game. I can always use pens, but I'm not super particular about them.   2014 questions:   Thoughts on yarn & yarns things I am completely inadequate in regards to making something with yarn, but I appreciate the wonderful things OTHER people make out of it.   for bath and body products: do you have a bathtub or shower? Both   Do you own a wax/oil burner? (If no, would you like one?) I have one, but the way my house is laid out I would not be opposed to another. I almost never turn mine off.   would you like loose, fancy tea? I love tea in any form. I actually have a designated tea shelf in my pantry.   Incense y/n? Not for me, thanks.   New Question: Please briefly describe (color, style, preferred type of beads) or provide a picture of (if it is suitable), the type of necklace (if any) you would be interested in getting. If you do not like necklaces, what kinds of jewelry (if any) would you want to wear? I make jewelry for a living, so I'm almost always wearing my own necklaces. Earrings are also out for me. I tend to like understated bracelets of all kinds.   What about hot chocolate/malt drinks? Hot chocolate is fun in the fall! I like cold malts (like a shake), but I've never had a hot malted drink. Sounds interesting!   Would you be interested in solid perfume? What about lip balm? I love the idea of solid perfume, but unfortunately the scent doesn't stick on me. I have a gorgeous smelling Tokyo milk one, that stays for like 15 minutes. I love lip balm and am always interested.     There was a lot of mention of not wearing costumes/not being allowed to at workplaces. Would you be interested in goth style or Halloween-themed(pumpkins, ghosts,etc.) normal clothes to wear instead, and what would be suitable? Yep. That all sounds fabulous. Suitable is irrelevant for me. I have no dress code to adhere to.     Rose City Comic Con? These are the people that specifically strike my fancy, but I'm down for surprises & ps I love stickers... Devon Devereaux, Imps and Monsters, Every single artist at Screaming Sky, nail art deals at espionage, the gorgonist, & tinplate studios.     Day of the dead? big yes!   Does anything from this shop catch your eye? https://www.etsy.com/shop/DebaucherousBathBody?section_id=10332462&page=3 The scents that sound immediately intriguing are: beguiling violet, lychee bubble tea, Indian summer, spider silk, & chocolade. Any of the forms are great with me.   Dear Pumpkin: Do you have aversions to any animals or insects? For example, I had a coworker who found owls creepy. I'm not a fan of cockroaches, but I'm fine with spiders, snakes, owls, and bats. Just worms & caterpillars. They're horrible, Snakes are ok.   How do you feel about canned foods like jams and things along those? I'm not generally a fan.   Do you have a favourite colour scheme? I like all colors. My favorite color is teal, but I'm not married to it.   How do you feel about stickers (and stationery in general)? I love stickers! stickers stickers stickers... I like stationary too, but it tends to get a little less use.   How do we feel about fibercrafting (knit, crochet, etc.)? wearables? crafted critters? If you would like a scarf or something similar, would you like it to be themed, like fall colors, or have a skull or other halloweenie motif/border? I live in TX, so knitted wearables get use for about 2 weeks out of the year. I love them though, & I love skulls. I friggin' love crafted critters. It's a weakness.   What makes you feel pampered? I'm a bad pamperer. I don't generally take the time, but I do enjoy a nice cup of tea & smelling yummy.   New Question! We've covered what critters you don't like, but what about the critters that you DO like? What are your favorite animals/creatures, real or imagined? Pretty much ALL of them. I have a special affinity towards pugs, owls, birds, & monsters (cute and/or scary).   Alcoholic beverages in your goodies-- yay or nay (mostly I'm thinking minis, tho I did get a full bottle of liqueur in a Switch Witch years ago!)-- if yay, what kind? Yes please. (= I like everything other than gin.   CANDY CORN--- YAY OR NAY? Big nay. Blech.   does anyone especially like or want anything from cost plus/world Market? I almost always love their Halloween collections. Also, always curly whirlys, & toffee crunch cadbury cookies.   does anyone need any small kitchen items or utensils? I don't have many gadgets, so I'm open to whatever you think is cool.   I have eyeshadow pigments which have been decanted from--as in the powder tapped out into another container,never used directly. (I don't use very much makeup, though I love it, so I keep shadow pigments clean so I can safely share.) Would a jar of pigment handled thus bother you or are you ok with cosmetic-type stuff that has not been directly touched? I'm ok with decanted pigments, but I'm a strictly neutral girl.   For those with fiber allergies, is it ok if you get, say, an ornament/amigur-whatsit yarn thing that has wool in the blend, as long as it's not something to be worn? Also, because I don't know, do people with wool allergies generally also have sensitivity to other fibers like alpaca? I have no allergies that I'm aware of, but I do live in Houston where it gets below 50 for like 2 weeks a year.   And now, a new question: to sort of piggy-back onto the question about small kitchen items, do you like to bake or cook, and if yes, are there any special ingredients, spices, or decorations for baked goods (like sprinkles in seasonal shapes or those decorative picks you put on top of cupcakes, for instance) that you would like? I'm not the most fabulous baker, but will certainly experiment with anything you deem worthy to send along.   Hey, Pumpkin! How do you feel about lounge pants/pajama pants? I am pro comfy pants. My studio is the bottom floor of my house, so I wear them whenever I'm not leaving my house, which is a little too often. I'm also in the big, comfy XL club.   Another question! Do you have long, medium, or short hair? What kids of hair accessories do you like to use? I have longish hair. The only thing I usually put in my hair other than bobby pins is a bandana or a scarfy thing.   If I were going to the mountains tomorrow, for the apple harvest, would you wanted some dehydrated apple rings??? Yes.   new question from me! how do you feel about music? would you like some? if so, what would you be interested in & in what format (do you still have somewhere to play CDs, or would a flash drive be better, etc)? yes. Any format is fine.   If you have an Etsy favorites list, are all of the things on the list things you'd be happy to get, or are some of them gift ideas for other people, or stuff that you've already bought and loved but don't need more of, or for any reason not something you'd want to get in this swap? It's all things I'd be happy to get.   Do you like Hello Kitty? Not particularly.
