SW Lucyboo21 Memorial Round 2019

Hi hi!! I'll post answers to questions and my wishlist here!   Etsy Amazon   Other Favourites: Paintbox Soapworks - Demeter, Forsaken; Red Right Hand, Pumpkin Daddy, GTFO, Perdita Sihaya and Co - Black Roses, Sisterhood of the Moon, Amber & Velvet, Samhain Dusk, Secret Society, Dark Crystal, Spell Weaving.  Also Gilly's Tiger Eye Chandelier Earrings   I love chime or taper candles of all colours. Incense is always good, particularly rose or lavender.  I love crystals, candlesticks, incense holders, suncatchers, altar cloths.    I’m extremely addicted to coffee and my favourite tea is Stash’s Christmas in Paris. I don’t like maple or butterscotch    Online shops I love (that I forgot to include in my questionnaire): Nui Cobalt Designs, Lucky Mojo, sock dreams etc.   SW Questions: Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things, I've probably already bought it! 🤣 ) Rook & Raven and Bell Book and Candle sound amazing in all things.   Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of?  I’m a wimp. Horror is not my thing.   Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific; I am here for fingerless mittens and slouchy hats.   How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)?
Totally great   I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested?  Sure thing! I have misplaced my Written In Blood lipstick and I am devastated about it.   Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands?
Yup!   OH, and any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? 
No thank you.   What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?) animal rescue pie dogs bears turtles inappropriate candies (either in shape or in contents—ex., boozy candies, creatively shaped peanut brittle…) Anything really!   I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations? No, I can’t think of anything specific..   Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. Again, nothing specific. I’m pretty easy to please!   Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? I’m not familiar with their offerings but again, super easy to please!   Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? Unsure! I like sweet and salty, I’m game for new things!   Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? I got a bunch of decants because everything looked good.   Would you like anything from Lush? I love their Olive Branch scent, and their Ocean Salt.  I'm particularly fond of bath bombs and bubble bars, too!   Kickstarter (and similar):  Any thoughts, witches?  I've backed a few tarot or oracle decks.  I'm not averse.   So, there's a Euro coin of some denomination coming out with Asterix on it for the 60th anniversary and, while I'm not a coin collector, I've loved Asterix since before I could read and therefore really want one or two of the coin just to have.  Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees?  I'm not much of a collector, period.  I tend towards minimalism.   9/28/19   Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? See above.   And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? I like chokers or super long necklaces.  I could always use more silver chains in the 18-22 inch range.   Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? I really like tea! I like lavender the best.   Knitting questions have been asked, but how about washcloths, anyone need any?  What colors??   I'm set here.    is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy?  Again, I'm pretty happy with everything.     9/29/19   There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) Again the Rituel de Fille answer above.   How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks?  Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)?  New or used? I love decks.  I collect ones, but I'm pretty particular about aesthetics.  I like Art Nouveau, or very minimalist decks.  I've had my eye on the Maiden Oracle for AWHILE.   Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? I don't wear much pigment kind of things.   9/30/19   do you have a favourite saying or quote? All in the fullness of time,   “I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” ― Anaïs Nin   How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit?
I'm a wimp for spice.
  How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? Sure.  Flowers or pretty things.   10/1/19   A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable?  (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.)   Any fiber issues? I'm easy either way.  I just don't like itchy or scratchy yarn.  I have incredibly sensitive skin.   About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else!  I've actually not purchased any for myself.  But  Kisses for Us All That Ere Wolf The Blood is the Life The Country Gets Wilder as We Go Voluptuous Wantoness     Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy?  Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y?  And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) Yes but good luck shipping any of this to Canada!   10/2/19     Nail Polish: Do you need or want some?  If so, what colors and brands are you interested in?  Zoya is my favourite and I could always use more pinks and reds and everything really.   Does anyone else do nail wraps? Nope   What about postcards? Again, I'm not much of a collector.    Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? No thank you   How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt.  Sure!   10/3/19   I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip.  Are any of these relevant to you or your household?  Sure!   Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits?  Not particularly.   Would you wear any of these?  Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey  or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? Hooded things generally appeal but I have narrow shoulders so regular scarves tend to fall easily.   Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? I'm good!!   What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? I'm not vegan so I don't tend to pay attention to whether something I am eating is or is not vegan,   10/4/19    How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute?  Elegantly modern?  Totally Traditional? I don't craft.   10/6/19   So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes.  Is this relevant to any witchees? No thank you!   How do you celebrate Halloween/Samhain?  Do you dress up?  Would you like something for your costume?  And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? SOCKS ARE AMAZING.   This halloween I'm dressing up as Jessica Jones Rabbit, and my costume is done!   10/7/19   Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas? I enjoy anything with Lavender.  I found one that was a Citrus Sage Lavender that was just delicious.  
I make light-weight hairfalls, doll-style, using a variety of fun stuff, like ribbons, lace and soft batting. Would you be interested in receiving a set in the colors of your choosing? No thank you!   And a quick question here--I'm going to this amazing looking event on Saturday--does my witchee see anything they might be interested in?  https://www.facebook.com/events/903999316607440/ (the Oddities Market) No thank you   10/8/19   How do you feel about enamel pins?  Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent? Love them!  Anything with a feminist bent, I'm here for.   10/10/19   what is your T-shirt/shirt of choice Size? I'm actually pretty particular about t-shirts, and generally prefer tanks.  I can't wear crew-necks.  I usually stick with a deeper V or a U.   10/11/2019   OCTOBER LUNACY!  I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye? PALO SANTO AND SANDALWOOD!!!   also I took some beading classes and have been making bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.  Would you be interested in any?  If so, how big is your wrist or how long would you like your bracelet?  Any preferred styles of beads? I've got a ton of beaded jewelry, so thank you!!   10/13/19   If I was to donate to an animal rescue on your behalf as the "lucyboo" component of this swap, is there one in particular that you would choose?  Local shelter?   10/15/19   What is your very favorite Halloween candy? If you don't have one/don't do candy, what's a seasonal treat you love? Sour gummies!!   I just got an email from Lush that their Christmas stuff is now up online! anything you might like? I love anything Lush!   10/18/19   If you were my witchee, would you enjoy home made (canned) preserves?  I'm going home to Can All The Things & I'm thinking some bananas foster butter/sauce might be a nifty thing for you. No thank you   10/19/19   I am in Las Vegas is there anything you would want from here? No thank you!

SW Q&A: Hallowe'en Round 2010

10/9/10 I came home with some Dungeon Crawl and some Bedbugs yesterday. If you were my witchee, would you want some of either/both? Yes! A millionty times over!!   10/7/10 Did you forget anything fun/interesting or find something new and exciting? I think I have everything anyone could possibly want to know about me answered in this blog or on my questionnaire, really!   10/5/10 Would you like to receive international magazines, even if you don't speak the language it's written in, just to ogle the pictures or for the novelty of it? If yes, what kind of magazines, or what magazines in particular? I'm not one for magazines. I don't like the idea of paper.   would you have interest in any of the new Christmas stuff from Lush? No thanks, Lush isn't really my bag.   Oh, witchee-poo... if there was one bottle you could have from the NYCC exclusives, what would it be? The Elephantine Colossus, or The White Lady of Durand-Eastman Park   If someone were to make you one of the items in this post which would it be? If you were my witchee, would you mind a gift certificate where you'd have to do it old school style and mail it in with your order form? That sounds awesome!!   10/4/10 Do you have a preferred weight of yarn to work in? Lace, sock, worsted, bulky, handspun with variation? N/A   Anyone like little seasonal decorative wreaths? Like gravevine wreaths embellished with silk flora, etc.? No thanks.   Do any witchees need a Snuggie? I have a bathrobe, I can turn it backwards if I need to.   10/01/10 So, who here loves pomegranates? Are the good as a fruit, a flavoring or just a scent? The fruit is awesome and I love it, flavouring is not so great, and as a scent I can have trouble pulling it off.   Haunt Update? I LOVE HAUNT!!! I'm a sad panda that I couldn't get Batik, but I did get Seer, Gloaming and a Lavender Spice Tea Lip Lust!! (I've been craving that lip lust since LAST hallowe'en.)   9/30/10 Villainess has an update. Anyone wanting anything from it? No thanks.   How are all the witchees fixed for purses--lunchbags, etc? I love market bags, and giant purses, but lately I've been hankering for a beaded clutch.   Now, I have a question for you. About notes. Which are your favourite ones? Do you have a kind of "note top ten?" Anything that works particularly well on you? Do you have a perfume category (foody, floral, aquatic, musky) that you favour? And are there any notes you have never tried, but think would work well on you?   Top Ten Notes: 1.) Musk (all kinds usually)/Patchouli (it's a tie) 2.) Vanilla 3.) Amber 4.) Tobacco 5.) Lilac 6.) Myrrh 7.) Lavender 8.) Woods 9.) Honey 10.) Booze I usually do well with "orientals" or "musks" or usually "woods" too. Sugar can be problematic, I tend to make it go to maple syrup or caramel. Rose I usually turn to cat pee/ammonia, and jasmine amps to high heaven on me.   Would you like a sugar skull decorated by your witch? Or do you like sugar skull stuff in general? I'm not really a fan of skulls.   9/29/10 Is there one scent that is your goto for comfort on a bad stressful day? Like the perfume equivilent of a security blankie? Pumpkin IV 09, O, Sachs, Romanti.Goth, Joyful Moon   What are you going to be for Halloween? Nadda. We're not celebrating this year.   Is there something just super random you like/enjoy/want/are ogling that has not been and will not be covered by any other questions, because it's just that WEIRD? Hmmm... excellent question. No, I think I've summed everything up on wishlists etc.   9/25/10 If you could make a scent that represents where you live (or have lived), what would be the ingredients? The time I spent at University in Guelph: Patchouli and incense (for the hippies), parchment and books (for the studying), clove cigarettes (for the time I spent with my goth friends), a hint of scotch (for the time I spent bartending)and a light musk.   Are you in need of Roller bottles or anything of the like? Nope, good here too!!   9/24/10 Just curious, but if your witch was to make an amigurumi critter (or other plushie) just for you, what would it be? No thanks!   Would you want a local/tourist item from your witch? Like a t-shirt, mug or shot glass? No thanks!   Okay, who wants NAlloween and some Vampire Apothecary goodness? NA doesn't agree with me.   Venomous Villains? I LOVE the Maleficient collection!   Last Unicorn? YESS!!!!!!!11111!!!!!   Who is your fav Disney Villian/villianess? How about hero/herione? (doesn't have to be specifically Disney though) Loving Maleficient. She's ridiculously BAD!   9/23/10 Do you collect stones/rocks? I'm talking like "semi" precious stones, ie moonstone, bloodstone, quartz ect. Are there any that you're looking for at the moment? Are you in need of a stone but don't know which kind? I love moonstone, it's one of my favourites. So is quartz. I'd be up for whatever my witch wanted to send, but I guess if we're talking about for a purpose, anything for a safe, healthy pregnancy?   9/22/10 Do you have a deviantart print wishlist or favourites list? Nope.   Is there anything from Blooddrop that you want to try? GC? Halloween update? Nope, I'm good here too!   What kind of shoes do you need/want? What size shoes do you wear? Would you mind gently used shoes? I'm set for shoes thanks!   Do you like paper dolls (new or vintage) or coloring in books? Sure, that sounds awesome!!   Do you like weird scary things as traditionally girly fashion items like heels and handbags? Nope, thanks!   What song is on heavy rotation for you right now? I posted links in the thread but Angie Nussey's The Badminton Song and Sex Bob-omb's Garbage Truck.   Are you coveting any of the NYCC atmospheric sprays? The British Blondes!!!!!   If you could get any one thing hand-painted from your witch, what would it be and what would be on it? Honestly? I would LOVE anything hand-painted from my witch!   Would you (assumin' you're a yarnie) be interested in a naturally-dyed yarn that's designed to very gradually fade with washing? Not a yarnie.   If you have played before, what are some of the most memorable things you've gotten? What really made you go WOW? If you haven't played, same thing, but not limited to SW. Lessee, I got an AMAZING scarf from Babyduo from the first round. I wear that thing ALL. THE. TIME. It's a stunning shade of green and black. I love it.   9/21/10 Do you like garlic? Do you REALLY like garlic? Would you want to try some really unusual garlic stuff, like garlic cheese or garlic fudge or garlic chocolate, etc., etc., etc.? I do like garlic. Love it actually. My friends have actually referred to me as a garlic whore. But I've been having some trouble with it lately.   Can I talk to you about the living dead? How do you feel about Zombies? I am scared shitless of zombies. Terrified even. Zombie Apocalypse is possibly the most frightening end I can think of. I can't watch zombie movies, or even tv shows. It's kind of ridiculous really. But I have to sleep on the side of the bed farthest from the door. In case a zombie breaks in.   I'm not joking.     9/20/10 If you happened to be my Witchee, is there something you'd like from the Arcana Halloween update? I'm not really into Arcana, but if there's something you think I'd like, go for it!   How many bottles of BPAL do you have? More than 50 but less than 100.   Is there any exercise program that you're interesting in learning? Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Belly Dancing, Zumba ect? Or if you do any of these (or anything else sport related) are there any things you need/want? Candles, music, mats, water bottles ect? No thanks.   Anyone else into Emily Autumn? Not particularly.   What's on your walls? Please show us up to three paintings/posters/whatever. If you love a painting so much that you would steal (to watch it with your greedy eyes) one, please share. See the thread for my answer.   do you like Girl Scout cookies? What kind? Sure! Thin Mints are awesome.   What's your take on homemade apple butter? Want some? No thanks!   9/19/10 Do you read/like fantasy? What kind of books or authors do you love? Which one would you like to read? Would you like gifts related to it? I like "urban fantasy": Seanan McGuire, Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris, Laurell K. Hamilton (although not so much her most recent books).   Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try? Paintbox Soapworks FTW!!! I has a wishlist.   9/18/10 Who likes hair toys, and if so what kind? Elastics, clips and barrettes are aways welcome.   Does any art we may send need to be child safe, either in the actually safe sense or the non X rated sense? Go nuts!!   In the knitted/crocheted things area, would you want wrist warmers, 1/2 gloves, a neck warmer(the kind that pretty much just goes around your neck and maybe fastens instead of being long and loose like a scarf), slippers, or hats? Love all of this! 1/2 gloves and neckwarmers especially!   How do you feel about altered/recycled/upcycled items of clothing or accessories? Sure!!   Is there anything you want from the Violette Market update? Nah!   What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...) I love old towns, places with history. I love to be able to feel how old a place is, and be blown away by it. This also goes for beaches, forests, mountains etc.   What do you wish you could make/craft if you had the know-how and supplies? Specifically, which particular items? N/A. I do NOT have the patience to craft.   Is there anything you would like from Conjure Oils general catalogue or the new updates that isn't already on your wishlist? I'm not really a fan of CO.   Am I alone in this, or is there a Book Fair/Comic Con scent you're dying to get your paws on, too? Like everyone and their sister, I am DYING to try Sibyl. From NYCC: Elephantine Colossus, The White Lady of Durand Eastman Park and Mount Misery and Sweet Hollow Roads.   Anyone need address/phone type books? Nope, I'm set here!   9/17/10 Are there any particular movies, tv shows or cd’s that you’ve been meaning to buy for years but just never got round to getting? Would you mind a gently used dvd/cd if your witch had it or could get it?? Not really, although Supernatural Season 3 would be awesome if my witch could find it used.   Is there anything from the Possets' Hallowe'en update you're lusting after? WRAITH!!! Also, 301, Gypsy Grave, Hallowe'en, and Naked Lady   Would you like a custom/altered toy either from a seller or from your witch (like My Little Pony, or a Barbie or any particular toy that can be changed?) No thanks.   Do you like the candy apple, candy corn or pumpkin spice kisses? Sure!   9/16/10 If I were to knit a scarf, would you prefer a skinny one, or a wide one? A short one, that when wrapped once around your neck will just tuck under your jacket, or a long one, at least to your waist? I love all kinds of scarves!!! I'd love whatever my witch wanted to knit!!   Don't like scarves? Would a rectangular shawl or triangular shawl be more to your taste? I love shawls too! And cowls!!!!!!   How do you feel about recipes? Love 'em!   What kind of a cook/baker are you? Lazy.   Are you happiest calling for delivery or microwaving a lean cuisine, Or will Food Network be asking you to host their new program? Delivery all the way!   If I send you something home made would you like the reciepe for it? Yes please!!   If you are someone who doesn't want baked goods sent, would you like a collection of some of my favorite recipes? Love it!!   How about home made mixes or kits? Kind of like the cookie in a jar thing, where you would need to add the perishable ingredients? Yes please!!!   if you are a tea lover, what are your flavor preferences? Green? Black? Herbal (I know, technically those are NOT teas, but tisanes)? Flavored blacks/greens? I like all kinds of tea! My favourites are vanilla and chais.   9/15/10 How do you feek about silly, funny knick-knack, dollar store stuff, stickers, magnets etc? Would you like receiving that kind of stuff or rather not? No thanks.   Is there a specific book you've been wanting to get but haven't found the time or the opportunity to? Come, Thou Tortoise   Do you read mangas/watch animes? Which ones? Do you have a particular favourite? Would you like to receive managas or anything related to them? Not really, no.   Are you open to receiving things that are not on your wishlist, maybe something your Witch thinks you might like? Yes!!! I would love for my Witch to send something that s/he thinks I may like!   If you have something on a wishlist that we could craft INSTEAD of buying, though it might not end up identical to the wishlist thing, would it be okay to craft it instead? Obviously we don't want to copy anyone else's design, but if we can replicate the flavour or intent that you like without stepping on toes? Of course!   OK, I know that lots of folks love socks. Do you have a preference of length? Materials? Patterns? I like anklets, OTK, Knee Highs, and Fuzzy!!!!   How do people feel about word magnets Sure!   If you could have any costume, or if you aren't into costumes, necklace or other accessory, from any movie character, what would it be? River's blue dress in the fight scene in the bar in Serenity.   How do you feel about samples/decants of things other than BPAL? Soap slices, lotion/scrub/shower gel decants, single use make-up/beauty products, etc. Sure!   What are you guys going to be aiming for in the Inquisition? Or do you just plan on ordering individual items? I want Tricksy Bath Oil soooooo bad!   9/14/10 Chocolate or other types of candy? I love dark chocolate, fleur de sel caramels, and any combination of salty & sweet.   For tea drinkers, do you prefer loose leaf or tea bags? I like both!!   If you would enjoy something of a knitted persuasion, do you have a preference on type of thing? Since making a scarf for someone who has 10 might be a smidge excessive? Also, how do people feel about shawls? I don't feel 10 scarfs are excessive. I'm of the "never enough scarves" persuasion. Scarves, and shawls are absolutely awesome!   Is there a TV, movie or literary character that you are a lot alike, or would like to be alike? I wanna grow up and be like Pam from True Blood.   Is there anything you need for your kitchen, ie measuring cups, spoons, grater, ect? I'm set kitchen-wise!   Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit? I prefer Studio unless I was at the live show in question, and I'm not one for censoring music.   If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most? I'm an animal lover in general, but I'm not overly enamoured with any particular breed/species.   Also flowers and plants- If you like flowers/plants, do you have a favorite(s)? Orchids and chrysanthemums hold a special place for me.   Do you have a favorite quotation? Song lyric? Book passage? WhateverthehecktheycalltheanonymousregionalwisdomthingiePROVERB! that word. "None of us is okay, and all of us are fine." I love it. In context, it's referring to the fact that it's fine to be not okay. It's alright to be a little groundless. Embrace it, don't fight against it. "All reasonably intelligent people should be cremated for the safety of the general public." EDIT: The Amazing Screw-On Head!!!! That's where it's from. If you haven't seen this. Just doooo eeet! "Keep your sticky to yourself kids." Just plain good advice. "It made my eyelids taste like sparkle." This just makes me crack up every time I read it.     What is a bpal scent that you've been dying to try for awhile but just can't find? (A scent where even a tester would do) Noir. Yes you can laugh at that. Also, really any of the impossibles on my wishlist.   Let's say, hypothetically speaking, that you have some children/spawn (1 or more), and, hypothetically speaking, your witch would like to spoil them a little but knows nothing of kids these days. What do they like or dislike? Also is there anything a (sane) adult might think they would like that you don't think is appropriate for whatever reason? (I'm thinking of things like temp tattoos, make up, things that make noise, or anything else that might be bad for non-obvious reasons.) This does not apply to moi!   Is there anything you would like that can be delivered over the internet? Things like fanfic recs, cat macros, mp3s you are looking for, how-to or amusing videos, things like that I LOVE macros! Fanfic doesn't really interest me, but everything else, sure!   What would your last meal be if it could be anything in the world (sky is the limit, drinks too, the whole shebang) I have no idea. I think it would really depend on the day!   NaNoWriMo? Nope.   9/13/10 what interests you from the latest lab update? The Dawn scents don't really interest me, rose can do funky things with my skin chemistry. But Pom's III through V are calling my name and I neglected to get decants of them when I signed up for my weenies!!   How do you feel about stationery, like nice pens or notepaper? And if you're in favor, do you prefer classic/contemporary or cutesy stuff? I love stationary, but I tend to like the classic/contemporary rather than cutesy.   Would you like homemade preserves (e.g. marinated vegies, pickled onions, chilli jam?) Not one for preserves.   If you've got stuff on your BPAL wishlist, would partial bottles be okay? Partials would rock my socks!   Would you like something you have to make yourself? Honestly? Not particularly. I'm kind of the anti-craft. And I'm lazy. And short of patience.   Say you were my witchee, and I found things on your wishlist that I could totally make. Would you want me to make it? Or would you rather it be purchased for you? I would LOVE it! Just because I'm not craftily-inclined doesn't mean I can't appreciate the talent in others!!   Who is your favorite soap etailer? TARTY!!!! PaintboxSoapworks FTW!   What about vintage decoration items, teacups, etc etc? No thanks!   With regards to your gifts, would you prefer your presents' awesomeness evenly spread out (several packages of pretty terrific things) over the round or a slow build-up of awesomeness (going up from pretty cool things to something super-duper cool at the end) to go out with a bang? Do you have a preference? Whatever my witch wants!!   What kind of make-up do you wear? What colors? Is there anything you'd like to try but haven't yet? I tend to wear mascara and lip balm/gloss/stains. And eyeliner if I'm going out. I like berry colours for my lips, and I usually do neutrals on the eyes, but greens and purples too.   Who would be on your top 5 (IE famous people you’d date/have relations with ) Hmmm.... Eric from Trueblood, Alcide from Trueblood, (do we see a pattern?? ) The Winchester Boys, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.   Do you crave many Ecards and contact or are you okay with little contact from your Witch? I love getting Ecards and notes from my Witch. But she is already doing an AMAZING job with the contact. I feel completely loved.   Do you have a place where you list all the BPAL you have or have tried? I have a list in my blog but it's not updated. I will update it tonight!!   Do you like maple sugar candy? I must be the only Canadian who hates maple syrup and all things maple flavoured. I feel so unpatriotic.   What is your position on the chocolate & bacon flavor combination? Although I love the combo of sweet and salty, for some reason the idea of chocolate and bacon together makes me giggy. (I realize this is a madeup word, and Witch, please know I tend to do that.. but for reference giggy = squick, grossed out, unsettled or uncomfortable.)   If you are a tea-drinker do you need a tea-cozie for your pot? Sure!   Go to your spice cabinet, what are the three most used spices? Herbes de provence, cumin and italian seasoning   Microsoft or Apple? Neither, I have no allegiences when it comes to technology.   Where was your last vacation? What did you like most? We went on our honeymoon on a Mediterranean cruise. My favourite part was exploring the Greek Island of Santorini. We wandered around Fira for the afternoon, and walked up the donkey trail. It was the most amazing day. I had a real Greek Salad on a rooftop taverna. I think it was the best day I ever had (aside from my wedding day).   Would you appreciate receiving handwritten letters and/or postcards (anonymous or not)? How about sending them? I'd love it!!!   Do you hate any food things with a passion?? Eggplant. Brussel Sprouts.   Would you be opposed to receiving a digital version (via email) of a magazine you like but don't subscribe to...you know, in the interest of saving a tree? I'd love it!     9/12/10 Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go to last.fm immediately and create an account! Download the scrobbler! Link us to your account!

Kings of Leon, the Whip It soundtrack (courtesy of my amazing witch from the Valentine's Shotgun Round - SultryWolf), the Scott Pilgrim Soundtrack, Tori Amos.   Any countries you're interested in? Sure! Greece, France, England.   Would you enjoy homemade bath products (bath salts, fizzies, etc.) and/or linen sprays? Esp. if scented with some of your favorite BPAL scents?

I love handmade stuff, and if my Witch put thought into it for me, I'd love it.   Are you a foodie? If we're talking perfume/scents? No absolutely not. I hate smelling like food. If we're talking actual food? Then YES! I LOVE FOOD! Husband and I go out at least twice a month to one of the many nice restaurants in town. However, I think my favourite meal has to be a Greek Salad with Fresh Bread and Olives and Cheese.   Any sports fans in the house? What's your favorite sport/team/player? I'm pretty much the furthest thing from a sports fan. Husband is the same.   For holidays, do you decorate? Would you like decorative stuff, weenie or otherwise? If so, do you lean towards the elegant, the crafty/folksy, or the more, erm, campy? I only decorate for Yule/Christmas. We tend towards the elegant in our house, and the colours are red and gold.   Do you like journals/notebooks/sketchbooks? I have a rather large collection and couldn't really justify more!   9/11/10 Cake truffles? If YES! Cake/icing/chocolate type? This kind of goes against my "no baked goods" thinking. But, if I were to try some, Red Velvet Cake is my favourite, probably with cream cheese icing.   are you interested in mini bottles(under 100ml for hand luggage) of bath and body products? Sure!   Vampire shows, literature, etc? Yay or nay? YAY!! I love True Blood and (more embarrassingly) The Vampire Diaries (ok, I swear I started watching that show because I was intending on making fun of it. After 3 weeks I realized I was ACTUALLY watching it. I'm sad, I know.)   If you play console video games, what game systems do you have and what games would you love to have?

Sephora, Chapters, SOCK DREAMS!   Cake or Frosting? Cake. But only if I'm the one baking.   9/9/10 What movie scared the bejeezus out of you as a child?

Which is your favorite? The blond female muppet in the band. And Kermit when he's flailing.   If you could have any creature (real or imaginary) as a pet, what would it be? Fizzgig from The Dark Crystal   Comfort Rereads?: Grimm's Fairy Tales   Will you be going out of town during the round, or is there any other time during the round when it would not be ideal for you to receive a package from your witch?

Panther.   9/8/10 Do you have a special symbol or totem that is meaningful to you? Peacock feathers and orchids.   Do you need a box for your bpal bottles? Your imps? Your something else to put in a box stuff? I love boxes!   If you could be any person, being, or animal from Fantasy what or who would you be? I'm completely stumped.   If you could go back to any point in time, where, when, why? The 60's. I would have loved to have been a hippie.   Favorite Halloween Candy/Treat? I don't have a favourite Halloween treat, but I love Fleur de Sel caramels and dark chocolate.   What are your favorite baked goods/homemade treats? I love Salt Water Taffy with a scary obsessive passion.   Would you be interested in an astrology birth chart? YES!!!!   9/7/10 Socks? Sock Dreams? Anyone?

I liked the Sandman graphic novels.   Warm drinks? All of em! Tea! Coffee!! Cider!!!!   9/6/10 When you go to an etsy wishlist, it will tell you what things are sold. If you click on the sold item, sometimes it will give options that are similar to what was sold, but not identical, would you like the similar item or prefer not to get it at all unless it's the same item? How picky are you? Much of the stuff on my etsy wishlist are examples of what I like. Some places (like Paintbox Soapworks) relist their stock, so you can usually find that item relisted if you check the shop. Overall, I'm pretty easy going. I'm probably going to love anything that comes my way.   Do you wear make up? Usually lip balm and mascara. Lip stains and eyeliners are great too.   Disney movies, Yay or Nay, and favourites if you do like them? I like old school Disney. Snow While, Sleeping Beauty. Those ones.

Lots, but I don't have a lot of extra time right now!   For those who decorate for Halloween, do you prefer cute decorations or creepy ones?: We don't decorate for Hallowe'en!   Also, as part of the cute-or-creepy question, would you want hand made, molded, glazed (by yours truly!) ceramic decorations (napkin rings, potporri/tart warmers, etc) to add to your stock? No thanks!   how do you feel about mortars and pestles I already have one!   Is there anything you have a phobia of, or that would make you go "squick" if you saw it in a package? Dolls. Spiders. Also, I hate looking out of windows at night time.   9/4/10 Are you into Austen's books? Not really.   Do you read Tarot cards? If not, would you be interested? I have a couple of decks, but I've never actually learned to read them.   So for those of you who are into Harry Potter at all, which house do you think you'd be sorted into? I'd be sorted into Slytherin for sure.   What, if anything, is your guilty TV watching pleasure? Oh man. I have LOTS of guilty TV watchings!!

YES!!!   Do you have any body mods? If so, do you need any new jewelry, o-rings, plugs, etc (and if so, what size, length, etc)? Do you like pro-body mod stickers?

Do you drink it, would you like some Nope, and nope thank you!   What is your favorite artist or art style? (including if you have links to favorite pictures/paintings/photographs) I will edit this.   9/03/10 Hallowe'en plans? My parents are coming to visit!!   Mix CDs? LOVE THEM!!   Girlyness level? Middle of the road I'd guess. I like makeup and dresses. But it depends on what your definition of "girly" is.   9/02/10 Baked goods: No thanks, but I like chocolate with sea salt! My favourite cake is dark chocolate or red velvet. Carrot is pretty awesome too but no raisins please!   Gifts for other household members: Sure! Husband is very into Star Wars stuff.   Are you someone who'd rather have lots of small testers of different things on your wishlist, or would you rather have one or two "big" things?

SW Questions & Answers Valentine's Round

What is everyone's take on Valentine's Day? My family celebrated. Mom always got us chocolates or something little like that. She and Dad exchanged gifts (small ones) too. But in my own relationships I never really celebrated. That sounds weird right? I'll still call my family and wish them a Happy Valentines Day, but my husband and I will celebrate an anti-Valentines Day at the house and eat pizza and watch horror movies. I can't articulate it very well, but I think I have a hang up about forced holidays? I don't know. UGH, my brain's not working tonight.   Do you like traditional Valentine's Day colors (red, pink, white, more?) ? Hrmmm... I was about to say no, but I realize I wear alot of white, decorate a lot with dark red, and I actually secretly like pink. However, if that actually gets out it may ruin me.   A Favorite love poem? Can't say as I have one, but those quotes bonny came up with upthread were just stunning. I'll have to look that guy up.   What's everyone's favorite semi-obscure (or underappreciated!) animal? Capybara   What is your favorite sign that spring is coming? Spring flowers blooming!   Knit Things? Yes please!! I love all things knit and I tend to run cold so all manner of things knitted are awesome for me!!!   For those of you with pets, would you like pet things? Toys, treats, etc? We have 3 cats, they love those little plastic springs and knit toys with catnip. Unfortunately we can't give them much in the way of treats since they've all had trouble with crystals or other renal problems and we have to really be careful what we feed them!!   Favorite Love Story: Ooooh, this is a really good question. I can't think of one that really resonates with me, but I'll come back to it if my Witch needs me to answer.   Would anyone like receiving naughty/sexy things? Hrmmm... erotica maybe, but no toys or anything.   Who on the thread likes attending Ren Faires, SciFi/Comic Cons & the like? And do you dress up for them? I've never been to anything like that.   Do you need any accessories for your phone, computer, mp3 player, etc.? I just got a Dell Studio 1555 and I don't have a sleeve or case or anything for it. I also have an iPod touch that is currently nekkid.   Gently Used CDs/DVDs? Love it!   First five songs on the "Top 25 Most Played" list on iPod - I'm listing the full 25 Jim Croce - You Don't Mess Around With Jim Ray Lamontagne - Meg White Pierces - Boy in a Rock and Roll Band Sia - Academia Kings of Leon - My Party Tegan & Sarah - Where Does the Good Go? The Ting Tings - Great DJ Alexi Murdoch - Orange Sky Silversun Pickups - Lazy Eye Hawksely Workman - Jealous of Your Cigarette Arkells - Tragic Flaw Xavier Rudd - Messages Kings of Leon - Molly's Chambers Bee and Flower - Homeland Ray Lamontagne - You Are The Best Thing The Black Crowes - We Who See The Deep Sia - The Girl You Lost to Cocaine Bee and Flower - Two Makes One Saul Williams - List of Demands (Reparations) Jenny Owen Youngs - F*** Was I Wintersleep - Weighty Ghost Dramarama - Anything, Anything Amanda Palmer - It Runs in the Family Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Here Comes Your Man (from the 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack) Sons & Daughters - Chains   Would you like a mix cd from your witch? I *LOVE* new music, so yes please!!   Interested in receiving gifts representative of Witch's country or culture? Sure! I'm not one for knick-knacks, but someone up-thread mentioned something about pictures and stuff! I'd love that!   Candy? I'm not really a big fan of candy to tell the truth. (I know, I'm a big weirdy.) But I like licorice. I also have developed a recent obsession with violet candies and lavender candies. Which apparently are really hard to find here!   WoW No.   Plush Microbes? I find them cute, but I'm not dying to own one.   Mardi Gras? Well, I like Mardi Gras. I like beads, and shiny things, and the overall celebratory vibe. I LOVE masks and masquerades!   Homemade Sewn Stuff? Any fabrics to avoid? As someone who is notoriously anti-craft, I am loving all things crafted - by other people who aren't me. So that's a yeah!!! As for fabrics, I'm pretty easy. I'm allergic to fabric softener though.   kitchen-related gadgetry? Hrrrm, sure. I'm pretty well set with peelers, and garlic presses and the like, but someone mentioned a little finger scrubber for veggies? That'd be cool!   Would you like new nail polish? Sure! I like fun colours, but no orange please. I'm also coveting some of the Trading Post polishes so you can get an idea of the colours I like there. And sparkly stuff. I love me some shiny sparkly things   Do you like incense and/or scented candles, and are you able to burn them in your home? If so, what kinds of scents do you like? I tend to scent my home with BPAL using imps and a lightbulb warmer. I have 3 cats so open flame and smoke is not a good idea!   Boxes? For Bpal (bottles and/or imps) or otherwise Yes please!! I definitely could always use more storage!   Would you use a natural sea sponge? Sure!   Bacon chocolate? I cannot imagine this would taste good. Although I love bacon and I love chocolate... so?   Coffee, hot chocolate, or tea? Coffee, tea and then hot chocolate, in order of preference. But I do love me some tea, so maybe coffee and tea are tied in my estimation.   Would you like some of my favorite recipes? Sure! I like cooking, it's just hard to decide what to make some days!   posters, pictures, art? YES! I love vintage pieces and old play posters especially.   Would you like soaps? Especially from Paintbox? And ESPECIALLY the Valentines Special Edition Soaps?? Yes please. Dark Heart looks especially awesome.   New question--I'm calling this "could never happen in a million years": Your Witch is perusing the wares at a local yard sale. S/he looks down and sees [insert impossibly rare item that you've always wanted but could never afford] with a $5-10 sticker on it. Sheepishly s/he takes it to the guy behind the folding table. "Do you know what this is?" s/he inquires. The gentleman states that it belonged to his mother/sister/grandmother/Great Aunt Beulah and he thinks it's for, like, hair or something. With a trembling hand, s/hes pays the man and heads home with the inconceivable riches. So, what is this unobtainable miracle your Witch found? This is an awesome question! I'm taking an aromatherapy course currently so I'd have to say, Arctander's Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin. I have been lusting after this for years.   What about UNTOUCHED make-up samples or any other type of girly-sample thing? I don't wear much makeup ever so not for me.   Salted caramels? No thanks!   Imagine that someone hands you their wallet and sends you into a really good bakery. They have everything, from breads to brownies, cookies to croissants, anything you could imagine, and you're allowed to pick out five things for yourself. What do you pick? Rosemary Garlic Bread Blueberry Scones Chocolate croissants Honestly, that's all I would need to be a happy camper.   Sockdreams? Good GODS yes!   Do you like alcoholic beverages? If so, what is your preference (beer, wine, liquor...)? Not much into alcohol these days. Wines always but I don't think you could ship those across borders.   Steampunk? No thanks.   Would you like or accept an energetically-charged item or gift? Something that had power poured into it? If so, do you have a particular purpose that you'd prefer? (Love, protection, money, etc.) Sure. My husband and I are trying to move to be closer to our families, but we need jobs before we can do so. Anything like that would be greatly appreciated.   Do you have any significant upcoming events in your life you'd like something for? A child/yourself graduating from high school/college? Are you buying a new home or car soon? Moving in with someone/getting married? Taking a new job? Moving to a new part of the country/world? I think we're set.   Ooooh! BPAL's beloved alicia_stardust is having a contest! If you're my Witchee, would you like a chance to win these earrings? Sure!   How are we feeling about burlesque? Indifferent.   Is there anything you're lusting after in the Villainess update? Not particularly.   I custom mix nail polish, a process called 'frankening'. If you were my witch, would you enjoy a custom 'franken', based on whatever colors/theme you chose? Sure, that sounds awesome.   Since everyone is spending the same amount of money on this swap, would you be interested in seeing the cost breakdown of each item in your package? If my witch wants to share, sure, but I don't need to know.   Do you like guessing who your witch is, or would you prefer to know? Do you mind knowing? I don't mind knowing but I'd rather be surprised!   If it's going to be obvious who your witch is, would you rather she played the ninja and sent one big box at the end, or smaller packages along the way? Whatever's easiest for her. I doubt I would recognize an address, regardless if I've swapped with her before.   What color are your eyes? Hazel/greenish   If you had to choose a color for a nightie to sleep in what color would it be? Any colour.   Are you opposed to vegan baked goods? Or baked goods in general? I loved baked goods!   What's your favourite flower? Calla lily, lavender, roses, carnations, chrysanthemums.   For those that have dogs, if I were to knit them a sweater, what colour would you like it to be? I don't have a dog!   Lip balm: Yay or nay? If yay, what are your favorite kinds (brands, consistency, whatever)? YAY! I've recently become enamoured with it. I like balms and glosses. I'd love to try the Italian Sausage from Soapopotamus, or The Great Gustavo Lip Liniment from The Morbid The Merrier or the Redwood Lip Tint or Rhubarb Lip Tint from Flourish Bath & Body.   How do you feel about home-canned goods, like pickles, jelly, preserves, stuff like that. No thank you.   OPI Alice in Wonderland set? YES!   How do you feel about handmade stuffed animals? I'm pretty indifferent.   Are there any accessories you'd really like? (Keychains, little purses, etc.) I think I'm set here! But thanks!!   What are your favorite animals? Um, pandas, bears, cats etc   Is there anything you've had to give up that you really miss or want back? Maybe something a witch could help out with? Not really. I tend to be quite a minimalist. I purge our house about twice a year really. I'm we're not using it in a 6 month period (or 1 year for seasonal things) then it's gone. We don't have a lot of storage in our house (we live in a century cottage with no closets) so everything is OUT. Which means that if it's not useful or productive in some way, it's really just taking up space.   If you were a student at Hogwarts, what house would you be in? Honestly, I'd have to cop to Slytherin. I get the job done.   I'm a space junky. Love anything galaxy, space, star, etc related. I'm even getting a milky way tattoo one day. And I am a total Star Trek geek. Anyone else? Hmmm, not really. I took astronomy in university for a couple of semesters and just couldn't get into it. I've never seen any of the Star Wars movies (ok, don't trout me witch, my husband mocks me enough as it is!), and my dad was a HUGE TNG fan so it was always on at our house, but I never got into it. The new movie however, was LOVE.   (I don't believe that this is actually a question, I think there was discussion about it and then SultryWolf randomly bolded it and people started answering it so I'll put it here for reference but I just can't get behind this question) Severed fingers? No.   If you like tea, what are your favorite kinds? Fruity, sweet, chai, plain, black, green, red, white? I love all types of tea. I prefer loose for home and bagged for work. I like sweet, chai, black, green, white. I'm not so much into fruity tea but if it's mixed with black tea I'm game. My favourites currently are Pear Cream, Blueberry Rooibus Cream, and Vanilla Caramel.   What's your Patronus? Non-Potter fans, what's your Spirit Animal? Panther or lynx. Some kind of dangerous cat.   Do you have any personal heroes / heroines and why? Hrm... Susan B. Anthony, Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, Louise Brooks, Sojourner Truth   Are there any languages or countries that you're really interested in? French, Spanish, Greek   If you could be in any fictional universe, what would it be? (Harry Potter, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, Silent Hill, wtv.) Firefly! But only if I could be romantically linked to both Mal AND Simon.   Are there any books you particularly want to read that you don't mind being 2nd hand (or 3rd or 4th )? Anything on my Amazon wishlist would be awesome. I also enjoy discovering new things to read, so feel free to provide suggestions!!   Do you like gardening,growing vegetables, house plants? Need any small tools, seeds, labels? I kill everything plant-related.   Are there any soundtracks you'd be interested in getting a copy of? Whip It!!   Who are your fantasy five? In no particular order: Jared Padalecki, Adam Brody, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nathan Fillion (Firefly era), James McAvoy   If you had to choose SHOES or PURSES? I can't choose! I love both!!   If you could have 5mL of ANY ONE BPAL scent, what would it be? Anything on my wishlist I guess. Or Voodoo Queen   Loose tea or bagged tea? Or both? Loose for home, bagged for work.   If you could have one "unselfish" wish (but personal) what would it be? That my husband get recognized for his work. He's an extremely talented man, and deserves credit for what he does.   I love to decoupage/collage boxes and notebooks. If you were my witchee, would you like one? What colors/themes would you want it to have? Find cute pictures--inspire me (and other crafty witches)! I would love that! I have a fascination for anything 20's or 30's inspired.   These are a few of my favourite things: ...? The coffee in bed my husband brings me to wake me up on the weekends, curling up with a good book on a rainy day, tea with a splash of milk and honey, fuzzy blankets, bundling, smelling good, having things smell good around me, drinking good wine and eating good food, leisurely meals, seeing new places, being still, my cat's purr, laughing until my stomach hurts, the made up language my husband and I use.   Are you following the Olympics? What's your favorite sport to watch? Would you be interested in merch? No. And let me explain. Living in Canada, we have been inundated with Olympic propaganda for the past 2 years. I am tired of the &%$*#@ Olympics. I'm all for patriotism and what not, but this is effing ridiculous.

Notes and Me

Notes that tend to work well   Amber Beeswax Black Amber Black Musk Black Orchid Black Patchouli Cardamom Carnation Cognac Clove Earth Ebony Ginger Honey Indonesian Patchouli Incense Lavender Lilac Mahogany Moss Myrrh Nutmeg Orchid Red Musk Sandalwood Skin Musk Smoke Spice Teak Tobacco Tonka Vanilla   Notes that depend on other notes in the blend   Ambergris Ambrette Apple Blossom Benzoin Bergamot Black Narcissus Blue Musk Cassia Cedar Cider Cinnamon Cocoa Fig Galbanum Gardenia Honeysuckle Iris Lily Neroli Night-blooming Jasmine Oak Oakmoss Opium Opoponax Orange Blossom Nag Champa Pine Poppy Red Ginger Red Patchouli Rose Otto Rosewood Sandalwood Star Jasmine Vetiver White Musk Whiskey Wisteria   Notes that tend not to work (But have in one or two blends)   Almond Anise Apple Aquatics Bay Caramel Civet Champaca Cherry Coffee Copal Cream Eucalyptus Frankincense Gardenia Grapefruit Jasmine Lemon Lemongrass Lime Lotus Mandarin Milk Mint Orange Ozone Paperwhites Plumeria Pomegranate Pumpkin Red Sandalwood Red Rose Rose Attar Rosemary Sweet Pea Sugar Tea Rose Thyme Verbena Violet White Rose Wine Wisteria Ylang Ylang   I tend to gravitate towards the sweet musk and resins, and shy away from florals and anything overly foody. My skin will make most wine scents go "juicy" and I can turn almost ANY fruit blend to generic children's vitamins in a hot minute.
