How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel?
I like chocolate with just about anything! But mostly peanut butter and mint!
Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like?
I do not use beads---I might if I had string and some clasps, though! Hahaha
Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?!
I am not a huge fan of caramels unless they are really soft. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is obsessed with caramel.
Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like?
YES! That would be awesome! I like all colors (except that pukey jewel toned yellow/gold/orange color). I love all fabrics, too. I have a soft spot in my heart for bright, fun colors but I’d probably get more use out of something that was more neutral. But that is coming from someone who wears a bright blue purse every day!
This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes?
I like stones! I make big rocks into little rocks for living, so I’m a fan of anything rock-related. Also, I live with a geologist. He might be more of a purist though, and prefer “real” rocks. But I like pretty things!
And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek?
I really love all their office toys and science toys. It reminds me of all the toys my mom would buy for me when I was a child. They used to have this rocking ant farm set I secretly wanted.
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 that is = (
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 new makeup brushes! Some of mine are getting pretty crummy!
Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc?
hmmmmmm. I dont have a crush on legos or anything, but I could see myself being engrossed in trying to put together one of those sets in an afternoon or weekend. I LOVE puzzles.
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 would get an imp of most of the RPG scents! (not getting the “Alignment” ones… except maybe Lawful)
Are there any characters that you love or identify with?
I love all the women from the Mists of Avalon book(s) by Marion Zimmer Bradley
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’m not terribly crafty. My crafting style is “ooo pretty!” where I see something I think I can make and then I devote time to creating then. Then I probably never pick up the craft again or not for a long time afterwards. I don’t really like anything too grandma, but I love homey things. I don’t craft things that are very “dark”… dragons, skulls, etc. I generally do things that border on bohemian.
Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE?
So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK?
I am really shy and would probably be a bit uncomfortable! One-on-one first meetings are scary! Also, you wouldn’t be able to get into my neighborhood unless I put you on the list so you’d have to sneak in through my back yard or something!
What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?:
ummmmmmmm… I don’t know! I am a pretty impulsive buyer. I think I can never have enough kitchen gadgets or nice bowls or plates. Also never enough jewelry. Or home decorations‼ I could go on forever…
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 had to google what franken polish is! I would say that I feel just fine about that idea! I had never even thought about that! I love all glitter! But due to working in an office the glitter usually goes on my toes!
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 am actually one of those people who don’t use lip balm that often! I have some in my desk drawer and some scattered throughout my makeup box. The one in my desk is getting pretty old, however, and I probably could use a new one…… ? I use tinted lip stuff more often, I would say. Just a natural looking pink or blushy red so my lips arent the same color as the rest of my face!
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 don’t do any art with pens, and would just use them at work. Is that an acceptable use? I did go around the office asking anyone for their gel ink pens the other day. My favorite one ran out
-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)
I… don’t paint. But I would have fun trying‼ Would be a cool way to get some supplies and play around without committing to full size stuff!
-How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.)
So my mom is this great artist. There was much of my childhood devoted to me trying to learn how to draw… I don’t have it in me! That gene was unfortunately not passed on to me. I am pretty good with graphic arts and anything that involves a lot of focus/detail (like paper cutout art, or anything paper-related, I guess)
-How do you feel about Threadless tshirts?
I am indifferent. I don’t really wear T-shirts with stuff printed on them, unless it’s a pretty picture or some sort of pattern. I refuse to wear T-shirts with sayings printed on them, or funny stuff. I know, I am a huge t-shirt snob‼‼‼!
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?
Sadly, probably contact solution and aveeno lotion. But if I already had a good supply of those things… pretty eyeshadows and fingernail polish!
Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature?
I live in one of the best areas of the country in terms of having access to locally grown food… since it’s all grown around here anyway. I also am not sure that california is too keen on produce being shipped in from other areas of the country (if you haven’t been here, they have check points at the state line along major highways to make sure you aren’t bringing in produce from other states… bugs and diseases and stuff) That being said, I would LOVE anything canned‼! That’s something I don’t have the ability to do or have access to‼
Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract?
I like both‼ I would say I probably prefer nature over abstract, but I am not against anything‼
would you be interested in something like this?
that seems cool‼‼
Amigurumi, yes or no?
I think they are adorable‼
I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples!
Okay so I saw this lady at a local art faire a few years ago and I fell in love with her work.
I like her “whimsical” paintings the most… her normal ones are just okay. She does a lot of neat halloween paintings like :
Although I have a soft spot for paintings of cow’s faces
My favorite painting of all time, however, has to be the Lady of Shallot by John William Waterhouse
If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be?
hmmmm. I love paintings of farm animals. Especially their faces… I also would love a painting of the quintissential california landscape… rolling hills of golden grass spotted with green heritage oaks
oooo! Or maybe Lake Powell‼! I go there every summer, it’s a beautiful place.
Name your 3 favorite scents for candles
A light, clean floral
I really enjoy a crisp grapefruit in the summer
Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea
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 already went into an embarassing T-shirt rant I would wear T-shirts as long as they didn’t have words or something that was supposed to be ironic or witty on them. Let me find an example of something I would wear…. *runs away*
All-over prints are fun:
And this picture is gorgeous:
Oh, and I am a pretty petite person, and smalls usually fit me.
How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc....
love pumpkin‼‼ love it!
Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin?
I have not heard of that… thing!
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.
Anything that is quintissential to the region! I love goods that represent a certain area/country/lifestyle/whatever!
Dear witchee, if you answered 'Mac' to the Mac/PC question previously issued by another participant, please tell me what kind of computer you have, what peripherals you own (like the wireless trackpad, wireless vs/wired keyboard and mouse), and whether you're interested in Apple-related items (stickers, keychains, other things with the logo, etc).
I do not own a Mac, except for my iphone.
Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color?
I can’t get the link to work… but I would like all socks, in any color!
Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe?
I’ve honestly never tried on a pair! I would definitely give them a shot!
Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now?
Not that I can think of! Unless maybe a muppet movie??
Does anyone like postcards? Is anyone willing to be a Nacho witch for postcards?
I love postcards!
Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall?
I don’t have any plans… I see bands as they come to play in our neighborhood amphitheatre ( but seeing as I live in a neighborhood full of older people… they are all kind of ummmmmmm…. For old people) I hope to go to see some jazz this fall. I don’t care who plays, I just love to listen to jazz and drink wine!
Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters?
I’ve caught some episodes but in no way am I a huge fan.
Witchee, would you like a framed photograph and of what?
Sure! And… surprise me!
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 am trying to learn how to cook… so yes! I need help finding good recipes. I always pick out crappy ones (it must not be my fault that my food sucks! It has to be someone else’s! ) I don’t really live near many restaurants that deliver, either. Just a pizza place and a Chinese place.
New question: How do you feel about maple syrup?
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?
I carried a chip on my shoulder about Star Wars for the longest time because I was forced to watch the first movie at least 20 times at my summer daycare center. I don’t even remember what the movie was about, just that I hated watching it over and over. We also had to watch Honey I Shrunk The Kids 800000000 times.
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)-
I love beef jerkey‼! I love it when it’s thick and soft! And all flavors!
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 don’t mind racy e-cards but I do need to know if something is not safe for work!
Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay)
Yay—Although I have only seen a few episodes. I have them all on my instant queue in netflix but I keep forgetting to watch them
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 don’t know if I would be able to appreciate them yet
Anyone love Buffy/Angel?
Never really got into that show…. I was more into Dawsons Creek! (omg nerd alert!)
How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires?
How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals?
That would be neat‼ My iphone needs a new case bad! (I have a 3GS, not the new one)
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 would say I am more of a cartoony halloween person, but creepy stuff does not bother me! I love dark fairytales, though! And disney ones! Actually, now that I think about it, demon figurines kind of freak me out.
Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings?
I do have pierced ears. I would always accept earrings! I used to have some… other…. Piercings but I have since removed them.

Are they like moon pies?!

Well… I use a Kindle to do most of my reading but I still have some unread “real” books!

Oh god, I dont know! I’ll try:
Shy, friendly, independent, equality, affected by absentminded professor syndrome (I parked my car… where?)
How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind?
I like clear booze! And wine! And beer! And cider! (just no whiskey, bourbon, etc and if you gave me scotch my boyfriend would drink it all before I even had a chance to read the label)
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.)
I live in a very warm place. It’ll be in the 90s during the day for a few weeks still. It’s not really that cold when it’s winter, here, either. No diabetes!
Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it?
uhhhhh MOCHI IS AMAZING‼! O wait, you dont mean the icecream do you? How would you ever send that? I have never tried the rice cake stuff.
Anything from the update ya'll are liking? BPTP UPDATE
I would love some samples of the room sprays!

I just had to google that… it looks scary
Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)?

I would buy one of those scent lockets (the queen one!)

I don’t keep a journal, and I steal all my pads of paper from work (DONT TELL!!) but I love pretty things!
Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee?
I always giggle when I open a card full of glitter, but then I get cranky when trying to vacuum it all up! Hahaha
Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want?
I have not! I might be interested in the cookbook.
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?
Sure‼ my dog might steal them, though, as he has recently done with a stuffed otter I got from the Monterey Bay Aquarium And I love all animals!
how interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? Like these that I did?
I can’t see picture link! But i would love anything that you made for me, witch!

15, 14, 11, 1
Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like?
I love toile! I went through an obsession while I was in college, but it wasn’t very fruitful because noone makes toile stuff.
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?
I have loose leaf tea as well as tea bags. Tea bags are more convenient but I honestly do not prefer one over the other. I do not know what compressed tea is!
