Do you like to burn incense? If so, what are your favorite kinds...sticks? cones? resins? What are your favorite scents?

I do like incense, I’ve only ever used stick incense. My favorite scent is patchouli


- Harry Potter - a fan? If so, what house are you?

I enjoyed the movies, but not enough to be sorted into a house or need anything Potter themed.


- If you were to receive a gift card, what places would you like to get one from?

Sock Dreams, Villaness, Soap Box Company, Amazon


Is there a particular myth/folktale/legend/fairytale/godstory that you're drawn to?

Not especially


If you RP, tabletop, forum, or otherwise... Do you have any original characters you'd like to see art of? If so, please give information! Even if it's a link to a web page or a profile or picture!

No role playing here.


If you could see anything, what would it be? Can be a person, an event, a landmark or monument, an object, etc. And it doesn't have to be on this planet, or in this time period, or in this reality!

My mom who has passed away


When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter?

Snuggle up with the little dog and a fuzzy blanket.


What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters?

I’m not sure if it would be considered a comic or not, but I adore Hyperbole and a Half


Are you musical? Do you play an instrument, and if so, what? If not, what do you wish you could play or do?

I play piano, and have since I was 4.


Does anyone garden? And if you do, what do you grow? If not, would a starter garden kit be something you'd be interested in?

I don’t have a garden, and I kind of have a black thumb. I like the idea of a starter garden but I wonder if I wouldn’t kill it, or if it could take the Northern Wisconsin weather.


Do you decorate for Halloween? Is your decorating taste elegant, kitschy and fun, or scary?

I do, to a degree. Fun and kitschy would probably best describe it. But NO SNAKES or spiders. Seriously. Snakes freak me the hell out! I would have to have the SO remove a toy snake from any package.


Witchee, do you have any symbols or totems that have special meaning for you?

Not really


Is anyone fond of programs like Adopt a Tree/Highway/Library/Manatee/Acre of Rainforest/etc?:

I do like those. Especially the Wolf and Polar Bear ones.



September 8th


From the Weenie Update....what are you most wanting to try?

Yes. Sorry, I WANT IT ALL!!! I’m probably going to do a couple biggish orders, so I’ll try to update my wishlist with things that I’d like but still haven’t tried.


Who's into nail polish? What colors/brands?

Not me. I still bite my nails.


Is there a quote (or lyric or part of a poem) that really resonates with you or is your favorite?


Dream candle? Scent, color, type (tealight, votive, pillar, jar, etc.), throw...

In the fall I love anything patchouli or leaf scented. I love apple and pear, but nothing heavy on the cinnamon or spice. I detest mullbery! I like pillar and jar candles and really have no use for tealights and votives. I also LOVE tarts!!!


Do you like knitted goodies? If so, what would you like and what colors?

Yes. Scarves, mittens, gloves, socks.


Would you be interested in homemade edibles that are NOT sweets? Any specifics?

Absolutely, as long as they didn’t have onions. Anything that you think I would like to try. I would also love it if you’d include a recipe.


What GC do you live in mortal terror of the lab discontinuing, but never get around to buying?

Bon Viviant, Snake Oil, Dorian


Yo, yarnies! Do you Ravelry? If so, who are you over thar?

Not on Ravelry


Social Media?

I’m on FB but never post anything. I twitter occasionally, and try to do more during SW. I’m lucyboo21 on both. Just let me know you are from BPAL if you send me a friend request on FB and I’ll add you. I don’t have any restrictions on the twitter account, so follow me at will.


Do you have wishlists for non-BPAL e-tailers? And if so, could you provide a link or a list?

I used to, and I’ll work on updating it and getting a link posted in my blog.


Witchee, do you use a PC or a Mac?



What is your favorite animal?

Cee Cee, the tiniest terrorist (her picture is my avatar)

Other than that I love bears and collect stuffed bears of all descriptions and some bear art.


What are you going to be for Halloween?



If you could have a piece of oil painting jewelry (pendant, pair of earrings, or ring) with absolutely anything painted on it, what would it be?

(If you prefer wall art instead, same question as above.)

The little dog in my avatar. I’d love something with her picture painted on it. I’d be happy to provide more photos of her, just ask.


How do you feel about nick-knacks?

I LOVE THEM! And having said that, I probably have more than I will ever need! But, if you see something that you think is me, than I’m sure I could find a spot for it!


What traditions (family, holiday, or otherwise) are important to you?

Christmas, birthdays,


Do you like going to the movies?

Not in a theater. I do like watching movies at home.


What are your favorite restaurants?

Locally a small Italian place called Bona Casa, The Tower House and Timber Ridge Steak House. I’m in a very small area where we don’t have chain restraunts.


Do you play any video games?



Do you like any anime?



Do you have an E-reader/iPad/something similar that you need a cover/case for?

I have all the covers that I need at the moment, however if I ever get the nook that I’m lusting after, than that would need a case.


how much do you like jewelry? like, if you were to get a shit ton of it during the round, how excited would you be?

I love jewelry! I would be a very happy witchee!


How would you like to receive some of your Witch's favorite recipes, tailored to your likes/dietary restrictions? And specific wants?

I love recipies!


Do you need any boxes to store your smellies in? What would you store in said hypothetical box--imps, bottles, supplies, all of the above?

I most definitely need additional bottle storage! I have a treasure chest that I keep all my bottles in, but they are double and triple stacked in there and I can never find what I want.


Muppets: yea or nay?



Do you have an affinity for Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, The Far Side, and other comic strips? If so, which is your favorite?

When I read it, Far Side makes me chuckle


Favorite Mythological Creature?:

A man that likes to cook, clean and give back rubs.


Do you like hair things barrettes, headbands, flowers

I can always use more hair thingies. I have longish hair that I always have up or back or somehow confined. I’m not really a big flower on the head kind of a girl, though.


Expanding on the hair question - does anyone like those flower clips for the hair that are big right now??

See above answer.


What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with?

None that I can think of right off the top of my head


are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update?

I’d love samples of any of the soaps, but I don’t know that I’d want whole bars, the burns on the other hand look amazing and I’m lusting after all of them!!!


If you have a pet, would he/she/they like to receive a treat or a toy as a gift? Does your pet have any dietary restrictions or other preferences w.r.t. said treat?

Hannah the cat loves little things that she can pounce on, and any treats or catnip would be much loved by her. She isn’t picky in the least!

Cee Cee the dog also isn’t picky, and to put it quite frankly, is a bit of a food whore, however, she doesn’t have any teeth, so all food must be soft. She does wear little coats, boots and sweaters in the winter, otherwise she shivers, and I try to get her seasonally appropriate collars.



What are your top three "I want to try them but I think I'll never get to try them" (or, "I've tried them and I want moar moar moar, but I don't think I'll ever get any") scents/bath oils/sprays?

Snow Glass Apples

Geek Goth

Antique Lace


Is there a particular artist and piece that you would like a print of? If so, what is your max size that you could spare on your walls?


If you are in to beauty and makeup related stuff, what kind of stuff do you like? What is your skintone and hair color? Are there any beauty products you've wanted to try but just never purchase?

I have some things favorited in my etsy wishlist. I love the Naturallogics things I’ve tried. I’d love to try some of the Villainess muds and slick.

I like blue/pink colors in make up. I am very, very pale with light brownish/red hair. This is a very specific thing I’m looking for: Archtype cosmetics has a mineral eyeshadow in a shade called Northern Lights, that is pretty much my holy grail of beauty products right now. I received a sample of it, and I must find more! Otherwise I like pinks, blues and purples, and the more sparkles the better!


Do you like coffee or tea? Would you be interested in trying some different types?

No, ick! Hot chocolate and hot cider are yummy, though.


Are there any CDs/Albums you've been wanting but haven't bought yet? What format do you prefer? (i.e. mp3, actual cd, record, etc)

I don’t buy many cds, but I love getting mixed cds. I can listen to cds and mp3s


Are you going away for any part of this round?

Nope, sorry Dear Witch! You are stuck with me all round!


Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch?

I would love it!


If your witch were going somewhere on a vacation during the round, would you want a little souvenir?

I would love to know that you thought of me while on vacation, but wouldn’t want you to feel obligated to anything.

Do you enjoy any outdoor activities? Do you have a favorite form of "exercise"?

Yes. Swimming


Any witchee's with a ravelry account have any favourited patterns that cost money that would be a welcome gift?

Not on ravelry


Do you work/study at a desk and enjoy interesting or cute office supplies?



Witchee, are you a fan of musicals? If so, which ones?

Not so much


Can you sum yourself (whether it be personality, life's goals, ethics, whatever) in 10 words or less?

No. I don’t think I could even try. I’m much more complex than that.


How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind?

I’m not a big drinker, but if it’s something out of the ordinary and you think I would like it, then bring it on!


What are your views on fudge and brownies? (Also, if you live in a warm place, where the fudge might melt, that'd be helpful to know. Or, if you're diabetic and fudge is death, that'd be useful to know, too.)

Both are yummy, with fudge having a slight advantage over brownies.


Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it?

I had to look it up to find out what it was. I don’t think it would be anything that I must try.


Anything from the update ya'll are liking? BPTP UPDATE

ALL THE THINGS!!! Seriously. I want almost everything! Especially the hair glosses and atmo sprays.


Does anyone like kimchi?

No! I’m not a big fan of fermented anything. I can’t imagine that it would do anything pleasant to a vegetable.


Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)?

Sure. I’ve looked at them from time to time and they look like it would be fun. I’m a sucker for the mystery boxes and surprise boxes.


You have to place a Lab and Trading Post order. Right fuckin' now. No spending limits. What do you buy? All of the atmo sprays! 100 bottles of Snake Oil and TKO so I never run out.


Paintbox Soapworks - anything you're interested in, in general or from the latest update?

I LOVE Paintbox Soaps! I love them so much that when Tarty came out with the last update I ordered all of them. I use her Sorbetto every single day and have a bottle of slip in my purse at all times. Anything from her shop would be much loved and appreciated, but possibly not needed right at the moment.


Do you guys have any sports that you follow obsessively? How about favorite teams and/or athletes

I follow NFL (GB Packers) and College Football (WI Badgers) and NASCAR pretty closely, but I don’t need anything themed.


How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like?

I always love them, and buy them, and then get them home and realize I have no use for them at all.


Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee?

I love it! Unless it is in a card or package and results in my having to get the vacuum out. I love glitter in make up!


Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want?

I have not. I keep meaning to get her books, and then other things grab my attention. I suffer from SOS (Shiny Object Syndrome).


How do you feel about stuffed animals/plushies/general soft, cuddly things? If you like them, what kind of animals would you be interested in?

I love stuffed animals. I collect bears, either ones that are more natural looking or dressed up in cute clothes.


how interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? Like these that I did?

I could definitely put those to use.


How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir?

I can always use more kitchen accessories, towels, pot holders and the like.


How did you dress up for your last party or compulsory-formal-dress occasion?

Discounting several weddings in which I was an attendant, and the bride forced us to dress in hideous satin creations with large bows and puffy skirts, I don’t believe I have attended a formal dress occasion since 1988 when I went to HS prom, and I am hoping to keep it that way. Normal party or dress up for me would be a black skirt and a nice blouse or sweater.


Do you enjoy puzzles/riddles? (Cryptograms, Sudoku, Crossword, Jigsaw, etc)

No. When I see them, it’s like a compulsion and I must work them, but they make me a little bit crazy.


Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of?

I don’t drink coffee or tea, but I have been thinking that I need to get an insulated mug for work for hot chocolate.



Would you like to receive e-books? And if so, in what format?

Sure. Kindle


If you have kids, would you be interested in getting things for them? And if so, what are they interested and what sizes are the wearing now?

Only have the 4 legged kids at my house.


Would you be interested in a felted handbag? Do any of these styles appeal to you? http://tinyurl.com/3o2epzl (there's at least one guy-friendly style, too!)



Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like?

I have quite a few examples of styles that I like on my Etsy favorites list.


If you're a tea drinker, is there any specific tea you would like to receive, not just the kind/flavor but also the type/packing--i.e., tea bags, loose tea, compressed, etc?

Sorry, but I am not a tea drinker


I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific! For instance, I'm a little squicked by used clothing, but I don't mind any other used goods (i.e. books, glassware, games, DVDs, whatever.)

I love thrift, but please no used shoes or undies.


Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you know of any Etsy shops that are Switch Witch friendly?

I’m just a buyer on Etsy, not a seller.


Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box?

I would love it, and keep it on my fridge forever and ever!


what are your favorite types of Halloween candy?

Caramel apple candy corn and marshmallow pumpkins.


Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands.

I like scrubby soaps like Paintbox Soapwork’s Sorbetto. I like highly scented and the scrubbier the better.


How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel?



Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like?

I would love to start doing some jewlery making with beads.


Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?!

Sea Salt caramels are the best thing ever!


Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like?

Love scarves (the bigger the better), and a hand painted/dyed on would be amazing. I like all sorts of different styles, see my etsy favorites for examples, and the only thing that I wouldn’t like would be something with skulls or made from scratchy wool.


This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes?



And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek?

I always forget about them, but they do have quite a bit of fun stuff.


Pinterest, do you have boards you want to share or are you following anyone with great boards you want to share?

I don’t know what it is.
