Switch Witch 2017 question part 2

I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there?
Apple VI, Apple VII catch my eye in particular, but I would love to try any of the apple perfumes, or Broadway. I would also love any of the hair glosses except for the honeyed.

Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)?
For sure! I could use a fun and funky apron, the pine needle baskets are super cool- there is a ton of neat stuff on this site.....

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!
Art glass, hand dyed fabrics (batiks...etc), handcrafted boxes, handcrafted jewelry, gemstone spheres and figures

Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/
I would love testers of Purple, White and Crimson Pumpkin Floss, and would also really enjoy trying the Pom, White Pumpkin, Rose Geranium hair gloss.

How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff?
Not a fan myself, but my younger daughter would enjoy it

Would you like to get some favorite recipes?
If vegan, I am always open to new recipes!

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? I love anything with a space or astronomy/astrology theme, so there could be a ton of possibilities there. I do in particular have a serious weakness for oversized coffee/tea mugs.

does anybody like anything from Solstice Scents? I *love* Solstice Scents, and have a handful of them noted in my wish list.




Switch Witch 2017 questions

Scooby Doo? I am somewhat neutral, but my kids all like it.

How do you feel about indie makeup- I love it, but I also create it (I am Back to the Earth), so none is needed

Hand-painted BPAL box: would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? I adore boxes and tins of all sort, the more unique and unusual, the better.

K Beauty: No

Cocoa Pink: nope

Haus of Gloi: no

Moonalisa: Again, nope. Generally too many synthetics, though I have wondered about their soap as I can never find an ingredients list.

LUSH: I love a few things from them, but stick to their 100% natural stuff.

Future Primitive: Nothing stands out to me from this company

Nui Cobalt: Ooo, their soy candles look interesting

Sihaya and Company:
I love their boxes, and their jewelry is beautiful. I would not use the candles though, as I stick to veggie or soy wax.

Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
I would love to learn silversmithing, and stone cutting. I would also like to expand my glass blowing abilities at some point.

What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? Coffee: whole beans or ground? Flavor and roast preferences? Tea: Chai, chai and more chai!! Not a fan of green tea, but I am open to just about any other organic, natural tea (no artificial flavors, please). Coffee: whole bean, organic, usually espresso. I love trying new organic coffees. Current favs are Kicking Horse, Equal Excange, The Organic Coffee Company, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc.
I do! I really adore cute washi tapes, and I also use a ton of the little gift bags and whatnot for my swaps & sales.

Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
I would love animal statues made from natural materials, like wood, or brass or something. Stuffed animals not as much, but I would make an exception for the right one.

Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
No thank you.

Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)?
Tester would be nice, but neither one grabs me too much

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?
Yes, yes, and yes! I am trying to eliminate plastics, and incorporate reusables as much as possible. Anything having to do with homesteading, wilderness, survival, and minimalism will be greatly embraced

Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanner?
Calendars always get put to good use around here. Dayplanners, not as much.

If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES?
I am pretty open

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
Oooo, such awesomeness! How have I never discovered this artist before? Definitely some fun stuff.

Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
They are kinda pricey, but they have some really neat stuff, for sure.

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.)
For sure! Open to just about anything, though we could always use more washcloths. Just pure cotton though, no wool, silk, or synthetics, please.

Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun?
I do not collect anything from this company

anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch
Probably not

do you like spicy foods? I am currently addicted to these suckers and want to send you some buffalo ridged kettle potato goodness (https://www.billygoa...shop/1lb-kicker)
I like spicy stuff up to about medium-hot, but am not big on potato chips.

what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus???
Cinnamon Chai Cupcake!!!

Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/
Nothing specific, though the unicorn is super cute

Japan: No, thank you

Hand knit: Love it! Just cotton though, organic preferred. I do not use silk or wool, and am trying to also cut out acrylic and other synthetics

Poetry: sure

Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
Absolutely! Again, no silk/wool/synthetics though

Favorite gemstones?
malachite, garnet, amethyst, rainbow moonstone, fire agate, moldavite, ocean jasper.... there are really so many, I just love stones.

Witchee, I have a small but awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does any of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market?
I am always open to natural, handmade soaps, and soy or veggie wax candles! No honey, beeswax, propolis or other animal derivatives though, please.

Witchee, I'm about to place an order with Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? I am totally good on cosmetics, so no thank you

What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs?
Probaby Loli-Dragon, Love Low, and Gingerbread, red Fruits & Sweet Jam

What are some things you do NOT want to receive?
Dirt scented anything, anything made with animal based materials, edibles that are not 100% natural and vegan

Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures?
I love animals soooo much, so almost any critter would be a hit, but I do have a special place in my heart for chipmunks and dragonflies. I am also very big on fairies and dragons, but would probably like just about anything based on a mythological creature.

Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur?
I do not drink, so probably not

Want some honey from the bees on our property?
No animal products, please

Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
For sure, but I have an allergy in my household, so it could not have citric acid or other sub-ingredients much past fruit and sugar.

Harry Potter fans and what house/s do you belong to?
Harry Potter is pretty cool- I do not collect the merch myself, but my teenage daughter (who is apparently a Slither-Claw) would be over the moon about it.

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? Oh, I would just love some organic cotton socks! I keep putting off buying them. Also open to bamboo, but no wool or synthetics, please. I really like Sock Dreams in specific, they are not organic or anything, but they have some super fun stuff. I usually wear mid calf, or knee socks, and do not like the really low cut ones.

What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?
Absolutely open to partials!

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap?
Oh, I love Cellar Door so much. I want like, all of their soy candles.

Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
