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.
Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc?
I love Legos. I would legitimately play with them. But really, dear Witch, you've probably already figured out that I am 25 going on...oh...7.
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.
I'd probably hang on till the Yules went live, because I tend to be very weak in the face of Yule blends.
Are there any characters that you love or identify with?
Love: Hatter from the SyFy "Alice", Edward from "The Young Victoria", Julian from "The Forbidden Game" trilogy by L.J. Smith. Yanko from "Swept From The Sea."
Identify with: I...honestly don't know. A bit of Edna from "The Awakening", I think.
A question! If you are crafty, what's your personal art style? I'm not talking just about what art you like to look at, but what kind of art do you like creating? Do you have a "process" while you're creating beauty?
I like doing very detailed work. I tend to go for fantasy art. I like bright colors as opposed to neutrals. I like shimmering things. I have a certain style I do when I'm doing abstracted stuff. The process depends on what I'm doing, really. When I started my embroidery project, for instance (I'm making an altar cloth by hand) I had no idea what I was going to do, so I started with a border using a particular curling motif I use when doodling a lot. I guess you could describe my art style as breaking it down from the symmetry...I always go for symmetry at first, and then it slowly devolves as the design expands, usually on purpose.
...God, I'm such an art dork. I can't help it, dear Witch, I've taught arts and crafts for five summers running, and that stuff WARPS you.
Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE?
No, but holy shit, TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES.
So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK?
I would totally meet someone at school or something, but my house is not usually company-ready.
What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?:
I can't think of anything. Oooh, maybe a manicure kit. Have I mentioned that already? Probably. It's been on my mind. My toes still look good, but my hands look like hell.
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?
I love the term frankenpolish. I would use it.
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 love, love, love lip balm.
I do not care for watermelon lip balm. And I think banana would probably make me crazy after a while. I don't care what flavor--I end to use a lot of that really amazing Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm these days. I'd love like, a clear red tinted balm. I have to say though, the BEST lip balm I've ever had was this pot of homemade lavender-scented lip balm. I LOVED that stuff.
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)
I would probably keel over and die of sheer happiness. I've never had a fountain pen. I have a standard black calligraphy pen, that's all.
-For those interested in watercolors, how would you feel about getting a palette filled with paint from my watercolor tubes but not getting the paint tube itself? (kind of like this but without the covers for the compartments and bigger http://www.flickr.co.../in/photostream)
-How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.)
Yes. I've never tried copics, I'd love to give it a go. And sketchbooks! YES.
-How do you feel about Threadless tshirts?
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?
Another eyeliner like the one I've got now (Milani brand, it's one of the few I don't fuck up with!), a new powder compact, probably another eyeshadow or two.
Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature?
FRESH CANNED PEACHES.
Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract?
Both on both counts.
would you be interested in something like this?
Dude, that is cool as hell. Yes.
Amigurumi, yes or no?
I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples!
I don't know that I have any current favorites. I'm kind of in love with N.C., Andrew and Jamie Wyeth after visiting the Brandywine River Museum this summer.
This is one of my favorites from said museum.
If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be?
Something of Freyja, in some gorgeous northern landscape with fir trees.
Name your 3 favorite scents for candles
Lemon-lavender from Yankee Candle.
Anything piney and woodsy.
The lily of the valley candles my local candle shop makes.
Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea
Sweet mint/vanilla green. (I blended it on Adagio!)
A pretty jasmine.
Really, though, I LOVE tea, like more than is healthy.
Do you wear t-shirts? Are there particular things you like on them? Would you like one designed by your Witch? And, if you don't mind saying, what size t-shirt do you wear?
I wear T-shirts a lot! And I like pretty designs, especially the kind with swirls and abstracted/collaged designs, and words. In a regular adult T-shirt I wear an XL/2XL, depending on the cut.
How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc...
I am not so much on the pumpkin gig.
Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin?
I want one desperately. "We are seeking the waters and the wild" Siiiiiigh.
If you had an international witch, is there anything you would like from the UK? (Or Australia, Belgium, France any other country we have witches from.
Oh, there's nothing I can think of right away. But international candies are always exciting!
Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color?
Those are cute, but my toes always get so cold in the winter!
Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe?
I would TOTALLY wear toe socks, especially the stripey and semi-obnoxious kind, but I have tiny little fairy feet and my toes are too small to fit them comfortably.
Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now?
I would LOVE to have The Young Victoria and/or Bright Star on DVD. I like historical romances, what can I say.
Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards?
I like postcards.
Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall?
Not that I know of, though I MIGHT get to go see TSO in the winter.
Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters?
It's not something I'm wildly in love with, but I like watching it with my dad.
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?
I like cooking at home AND eating out. I don't think I need any utensils right now, and we're solid on cookbooks. Though if you had any cookbooks on working with edible flowers, that would be cool as hell.
New question: How do you feel about maple syrup?
I like it just fine. The real stuff is best.
Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters?
Yes, this has been a daddy-daughter bonding time feature film.
Do you like beef jerkey, I know some may be vegatarian, but where I live beef is a staple and beef jerkey abounds. If so do you it really thin, hard and crunchy or thicker and softer. (OK that borders on obscene)-
Yes, I do. I like it in all its forms.
Also do you like or racier ecards from time to time and do you need to be warned if something may be not safe to open at work?
I giggle at all kinds of dirty jokes. And no, I don't need to be.
Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay)
Does "Ehhh..." hurt less than "nay"? I just haven't really gotten into it. I don't watch a ton of TV.
I have a couple spare Doctor Who stickers. If my witchee is a fan, would they like a couple Doctor Who stickers in their package?
I'm cool with passing on those.
Anyone love Buffy/Angel?
I don't LOVE it, but I like it well enough. Especially when Spike is involved. Mmmm, Spike.
How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires?
GUMMIES. Gummy ANYTHING.
How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals?
Wassat? *googling* Oh! Sure, that looks cool! I have a netbook and a phone that could be totally prettified!
Since this is a Halloween round, what's your Creepy threshold? Are you a cartoon bats and smily pumpkins person or a skulls-and-bones the-dead-are-rising kind of person? Are your fairytales dark or Disney?
I like creepy all right. Tastefully so. My fairytales know there are things that go bump in the night.
Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings?
Yes, they are. I don't have any other piercings.
How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies?
Interested in anything from Lush?
OhmygodLush. The day someone bought me Lush was the day my checking account wept aloud. I absolutely LOVE: Avobath, Big Blue, Dragon's Egg, Pink Bomb, Honey Bee, Sakura. I really want to try The Sicilian, Fox In The Flowers, Honey Lumps (!!!) Bon Bon Bonnard, Geo Phyzz. Bubble bars: I have tried Sunny Side (and LOVED IT), but I'd like to try Ice Hotel, Pop In The Bath, Happy Bubble, Freedom Foamer. Any of the bath melts. (What's the difference?)
Do you blog? Would you like a header for your blog, a layout, etc?
YES. OMG. I've been wanting a new LJ layout for AGES and my CSS skillz are lacking and I don't have Photoshop anymore. I don't know what I want, though! I have so many interests I could incorporate. Art, camp, gardening, Victoriana, books, music, hockey, science...maybe a collage effect, with some swirly brushes and stuff?
Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark?
Do you like chex puppy chow or muddie buddies (ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate chips, PB, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, chex cereal)? would you want to get some from your witch / nacho witch?
I do love puppy chow! And I would not turn it down.
How would you feel about receiving a Groupon deal for something in your local area? If there is anything you WOULDN'T like, mention that also.
I do not think I would use it.
