I am ignorant of this practice.
Did someone ask about incense yet? Would you like some? Something to store or burn it in? What scents? What form?
I do like incense - any kind.
Any oddball free things you collect or would want saved for you?
I try to throw away as much stuff as I can, because my grandmother was a hoarder (boxes and boxes of twine, butcher paper and old newspapers), so STUFF makes me nervous.
For those who are yarnies, would you like other-than-yarn witchery? Hooks, needles? Preference of material? Do you use/would you like handmade stitch markers, etc.? Not a yarnie.
What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...) I've lived all over, but I think I most love being near a beach. I've lived near beautiful white Destin, Fl. beaches, near crowded Rio de Janiero beaches, chilly Jersey Shore beaches and now muddy Galveston, Tx beaches - and have loved them all...just so I also have a big umbrella handy!
How do people feel about edible arrangements? I love fruit, and I love chocolate, so it could work!

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? For example, you like some simple earrings with moon charms on them. We have moon charms and earring backs, though of course not exactly the same ones.

Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit? - Live or studio, either is good. I tend to prefer edited - just because I've always tried to keep my kid's world clean. Now, however, they are the ones that turn the radio down when an explicit song is on, saying, "Mom, you shouldn't hear this one".
If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most? – I adore cats of any kind. And golden retrievers.
