Halloween Questionnaire

Anything here: http://paintboxsoapworks.com/ look like something you'd like to try (assuming that you're not already ordering it)?
I will take any and all PBSW items. I love the sugar scrubs and bar soaps. I'll also be placing an order but that doesn't mean I'll be upset if i get more! ahahaha

Do you like stuff related to Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)?
I really love how celebratory Latin American culture makes the passing of loved ones. American culture is so sad about it. While I'm completely white I appreciate the celebration and would appreciate any cultural-related items without appropriating it. =w =

Knitted Items?
Ah yes! I crochet and can't pick up on knitting haha. Socks, scarves, cowls, beanies, gloves, anything oversized. I'd super super love an oversized sweater but I have no idea how long those take, I assume as long as it takes me to make a blanket.

Fandom/Specific Items?
Ah, probably anything Tim Curry-Clue/Legend/RHPH related? Labyrinth, and then I like owls.

Fall/Halloween Icons?
Bats, cats, pumpkins, ghosties, witches, skeletons....I prefer cutesy ones but I'll totally take realistic and spooky skulls and gothic-y styles too

First, talk to me about soaps- do you like them, and what kinds of scents/lather/varieties do you like?
I love soap, liquid and bar soap is what I'm used to. Scents - pmuch everything except straight patch/vetiver/frankincense. Mixed with other things is okay though! I've only really tried normal lather hot/cold process soaps, but I'll try anything!

Second, tell me about teas! Favorites? Anything you'd like to try?
Genmaicha, Oolongs, white teas, I really love Temecula Tea & Spice Company (a local place but they have gift cards and ship within the US!) From there specifically I like their Genmaicha, Genmai Hojicha, Mango n Friends, Orchid Berry, Carrot Cake, Lemon Meringue, Blueberry,

Lastly, I go to Renn Faire- is there anything from there you might like?
Oh I haven't been in such a long time...anything fantasy-y which is all of the renfair if I remember haha. I really like those button down fairy-style dresses, the ones on Amazon probably wouldn't fit me since I need like a 2XL/20 US women's

What Weenie of year's past are you seeking from the lab?
Samhain 2010, Death on a Pale Pumkin HG, Gourd of Deprivation HG, Autumn Overlooking my Knitting, I just started collecting Yule of last year so I'm new to weenies, so I will try any/all of them! I really super love Death on a Pale Pumpkin HG, and reading the notes on Gourd of Deprivation I think my husband would really like it.

Down for that! I never make any for myself so it'd be nice to get one

Gift Order?
Suprise me! If you want to number them, be my guest, if you want me to be a rabid Halloween fiend and go free-for-all I will!

Tell me about LUSH- do you like them? If so, what are some of your favorite things from there? Particularly fond scents or products? Stuff you can't stand?
I've only used their bath bombs which are pretty awesome. If there's something you think I'd really like, I'm open to try new things!

Items from Japan?
I HAVE A LIST! Candies and snacks, Monster Hunter items, Pokemon Items, Hello Kitty items, Monokuro Boo Items, I really like figurines and plushes and cool gadgety-like things. IE: I have a Rioreus piggy bank!

Anything you have your eye on at BPTP?
2XL in: Make America Live Deliciously T-Shirt, Black Cat Friday the 13th T-Shirt, Bitches Love Unicorns T-Shirt, Samhain HG, Chastity with a Unicorn HG, Places Everyone, The Serpentine

Pumpkin Spice or No Pumpkin Spice?
I just bought pumpkin spice everything at the grocery store so....pumpkin spice all the things. If you have a local shop that does something super fun pumpkin spiced, I would love that!

Milk, white, and/or Dark Chocolate?
Any/all but with dark chocolate I like it to have some sort of extra flavor like mint, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry (no orange)

Do you like Yankee Candle? Anything you want from there?
I love Yankee Candle, but I have three gallon-sized bags FULL of tarts from there, so I think I should use up some of my stash.   Bath & Body Works?
I use their body washes. I just perused their site and realized they have a lot of discontinued scents available and got super excited since a lot of the smells I like are no longer available (SUN RIPENED RASPBERRY and Be Enchanted) I'll take any of the new fall scents, and any of the fruity floral scents, but not cherry blossoms please! Purrrfect Pumpkin "shower spell" looks too cute.

Sock Dreams?
I love sock dreams! Sadly my thunder thighs deny their beautiful long socks on me. I haven't looked in a long time though, so maybe they have new options for luscious bodies (EDIT: I just checked out the site, I think any of the plus sized stripey socks, tights, leggings, or anything that looks super comfy would be awesome!)

I'd like to make some baked goods, would you like some? And if you have any food allergies what can I use as substitute?
I love baked goods! No allergies here

Target Spot/Dot?
I saw online some cookie cutters? If they have those that'd be great! I'm not really sure what they have at those.

Netherlands goodies?
I'd be stoked to get anything from your country! Traditional candies or snacks, or little knick-knacks that are popular. I like learning about other places

Lush Showergels?
I've never used any, but I'll try them!

I love glittery sparkly things, mostly in nail polishes. I can't think of any other time I really use it. (Unless it's on a sign, in a candle, a bag or something in which the design is glittery!)

Reading Wishlist?
I have some on an Amazon wishlist of mine, I'll take any fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, horror type books. (I'll go now onto Amazon and make a dedicated wishlist for the future!)

I don't have a lot of place for it right now.

Probably easier to say what I don't want I'll take teas bagged/loose/instant exceptions being: Earl Grey, Spice Teas, Licorice, Chili. I like all types of tea, and really enjoy fruit flavored teas (everything looks great) I'd also take hot chocolate exceptions being: chili and orange.

Dearest Pumpkin - how much are you wedded to wishlists, say I have some read once books which I think you might like based on what you've read in the past, but there is nothing of the sort on your current Goodreads "to read" list?
I'm always open to reading books people will think I like! No objections here!

How do you feel about reading series out of order? Obviously not in situations where the subsequent books are part of the same story arc where you will be totally lost and frustrated if you haven't read all of them, but say, standalone stories which are technically part of a series and which might obliquely reference past books, but not in such as way as to spoil the plot of the book which I happen to have in my possession that you might like.
My anxiety won't allow me to read them out of order D:

Would you be interested in a Halloween themed short story anthology?
Yes! That'd be awesome

Is there a limit to the number of books you'd like to receive?
No, but I know that they make boxes heavy so I wouldn't want you to have to spend super extra money by shipping me a ton of books.

Have you read Movies in 15 Minutes by our very own Cleolinda? Would you like to?
I haven't! I'm for reading anything though!

What kind of phone do you have? I need to know....
Uh, Samsung Galaxy Avant? AKA: Phone no one has anymore haha

My husband said this was a pretty scary movie, and nothing bothers him. So for me I say no.

Those who are amenable to yarnie things--ok, two questions: Any undesirable fibers (wool allergy, vegan so no critter hair at all, etc.)? and how do you feel about cowls/infinity scarves?
I'm down with any fibers, but prefer ones with out glitter as they tend to be scratchy. I love cowls/infinity scarves as long as they're not like turtlenecks.

Motherhood update:
La MIlagrosa
Little Lady Frankenstein
Stonehenge at Dusk
The Devil Will Find Work for Idle Hands

So who likes incense? and is there a preferred scent? and cones or sticks? Would you like a burner for it?
I haven't burned incense in such a long time! I used to have this cool bottle with dragons on it that burned sticks. My mom hated it hahaha.
