Sign in to follow this  


September 23rd



Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store?

Maybe just a bookmark or a magnet or something.


I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like?

I love Cauldron Bubbles, and have been meaning to get some in perfume form. Other scents I'd love to try are:

Black Apple Noel

Candy Apple



Coconut Sugar

Cranberry Noel


Pumpkin Noel

Pumpkin Spider Cider

She's a Peach!

Toffee Apple Crunch

Wicked Pumpkin


what's your favorite kind of pizza?

fresh tomatoes, broccoli and chicken



Are there any food items you're craving/aren't able to find around your area?

not really.


September 22nd



Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people!

Plum, dark fuschia, dark cobalt (not quite navy), dark forest green, dark blood red


What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length?

I have so many already, no thanks!


Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives?

All of the above! I don't have a tartwarmer though.


What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty?

I really like sour candy and salted caramel flavors.


So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question)

unless you can get me the old Neverwinter Nights PC games, no thanks.


Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan?

I'm probably going to Pumpkin fest in Keene this October!

What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee?

this was my question, I work at Starbucks and so far I really like Anniversary blend!


September 21st


Cthulhu: yay or nay?

nah, I haven't gotten into Lovecraft yet (though I'd like to!)


Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off?

Go to Salem, Mass for autumn, finish my granny ripple afghan, save for a car.


Put your current mp3player (I am the anti-apple, so no ipod ), winamp playlist, what have you, on shuffle, list the first 10 songs:



Witchee, have you made (or are you planning to make) any Lab or Trading post orders soon? And if you did (or plan to), you should share what you're getting

nope! I can't really afford it. I might make a last minute lab order for Weenies if I like any of the decants I got.


Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance!

nah. I just like the pretties :P


If your witch were to knit you a scarf/shawl/cowl, which would you prefer, and what features would you want? Would you prefer something light and drape-y or thick and warm? What kind of colors would you prefer? Do you have any fiber allergies or preferences?

I would love a lacy knit/crocheted shawl to keep me warm! I believe I am allergic to mohair, angora or any small animal fur. Wool is okay though. I'd love a deep plum or dark blue color :)


If you have a pet, could you please post a photo of it? I really need to see what your pet, if you have one, looks like.

archie.jpg Archie

Videocallsnapshot3.png Rosie

Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like?

no thanks.


How do you feel about terrariums?

not sure. I'm kind of a minimalist,


What's your favorite horror movie?



If your witch was the practical type and wanted to include one or more of your everyday essentials, what would those include? I'm talking about the bath products, lotions, face lotions, teas, food, etc that you really use every day.

That would be awesome! Tazo Passion or Zen Tea, wasabi peas, Mary Kay Timewise products (especially the moisturizer), Clinique Dramatically different lotion. LUSH Karma soap (or anything scented in Karma.


Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay?

She's alright. Restoration-ish era literature kind of bores me though. I prefer the passionate mid to late Victorians.


I put up quotes I love in my office and studio to get me going, They range from goofy to sarcastic to inspirational... Are you interested in a hand painted quote? Do you have one in mind, or a topic in mind?

No thanks, I'm not really into that sort of thing.


Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you?

Yes! Any period really, but especially Victorian, Art Nouveau and 20's era.


If you like manga, comics, and/or graphic novels, what is it about them that you like, in general? The story, the art/style, etc?

Yes! I really like Chibi Vampire and Nana and there are so many to collect, I don't have all of them (see my amazon wishlist)


If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it?


if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be?

Like many other witchees have said, the Waterhouse paintings.


Are you scientifically curious and/or process-oriented? Would you like a project-type gift that allowed you do do something like make soap from scratch, take and (nontoxic-ly) develop photographs using a pinhole camera, use plant dyes on yarn or fabric, etc.?

I would love a project gift! I'm really into all crafts.


Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt? Of course! I don't have many BPAL shirts.


Do you like homemade snack mixes? I know Puppy Chow was mentioned in a previous question, but what about healthier and more natural type snacks like granola or trail mix? You can put a lot of delicious and fun things into trail mix, yeah? If you say "Sure, I'd love some!" what kinds of things do you like/not like in those kinds of snacks, ie coconut flakes, raisins, certain nuts (allergies??), candy, etc. Give us your list of DO's and DON'Ts! No allergies, but I try to eat healthier things like jerky, nuts and seeds (sometimes dried fruit if its anything but raisins (I especially like dried cranberries)


Do you like charm bracelets? If you had a bracelet, what sort of charms would you want on it? Favorite hobbies, symbols, whatever? I have a charm bracelet that I need to fill up. I've been looking for a mountain lion charm and a graduation charm.



September 20th


Would you like any ecotools makeup brushes? They're kinda one of my favorite things ever, and they're animal-friendly and the handles are bamboo. And to top it all off, they work really well for applying makeup. I would love some! I really need a good foundation brush and a powder brush.


Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc? No thanks.


Since the previous question about "what would you buy from the Lab if you had unlimited funds, etc" left WAY too much to the imagination with no limitations (my answer was pretty much BUY ALL THE THINGS!), what would you do if you found a $50 bill on the ground and a nagging voice in the back of your mind told you that you HAD to spend it on BPAL or else face Death. Also, say they had free shipping (LOL) so don't factor that in. What would you get? And spend it all! Or as close to $50 as you can get.

#occupywallstreet and maybe a Weenie, even though I haven't tried them yet!


Are there any characters that you love or identify with?

Jo March from Little Women, ever since I was a little girl.


Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE?

I haven't looked =( I'll update when I've looked.


So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK?

As friendly as I am, and as much as I love my Witch, I'd have to say no, that would freak the $@ out of me. Maybe if it was planned ahead of time.




September 19th


How do you feel about franken polish? Are you okay with all chemicals, or would you prefer 3 free? Would you want glitter or holographic glitter? What colors would interest you?

Deep dark metallic colors, purple, red, grey, blue, green. I don't mind chemicals because I use a chemical free base usually.


Dear witchee, how do you feel about lip balm? Favorite style (twist up tube, pot, tube with wand, etc.)? Favorite flavors? Flavors to avoid? Favorite brand? Do you need more right now or are you set? Are you one of those people who could never have enough lip balm even though you have a bowl on your dresser overflowing with them and 10 in your purse and an order for more on the way?

I used to be able to wear lip balm but since I developed eczema on my lips I can now only use petroleum jelly or Rosebud Salve (which I actually need more of!)


Would you be interested in getting fountain pen inks or art supplies via JetPens and or DickBlick? (I know I have a wishlist on JetPens and just love using fountain pens in my artwork)

No thanks


-How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.)

Sketchbooks are nice, but I like the bound ones (like books) so I can write in them. lol

Love them!


If you were turned loose in a basic drug store (CVS, Walgreens - a pharmacy with attached mini-mart, basically!) with a $20 bill, what would you pick up?

Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature?

Rule for me is Black and white photographs, color paintings.

Sure! I'm not sure what I'd do with them though, lol.

I love Mac stuff, even though I had to resort to buying a PC because I couldn't afford a macbook =(




Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color?

sure, anything in a dark solid color.

Are you more prone to order out or cook at home? Would you be interested in cookbooks, kitchen utensils, and the like? If so, anything specific?

New question: How do you feel about maple syrup?

I like it, but can't have it right now (the sugar)


How do people feel about little pocket shrines, maybe something inspirational/motivational to keep in their purses/backpacks/whatever? (Like these: http://www.art-shrin...cketshrines.htm)

Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters?

Sure, but I'm not crazy about them. Send them all to my boyfriend lol
