What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?:
I don't think it's strange, but I'm dying for a tart warmer. I also need a new Ingenuitea tea brewer since mine is all nasty from permanent tannins.
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 find this question terrifying! Please no!
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 lip balm. It's the only stuff I use. I prefer twist tube because I am lazy and things that resemble makeup scare me. I have Burts Bees Pomegranate in my purse right now. I'm pretty open as long as there are no wheat products and it's not stinky. No color either please. A slight tint is ok, but if it feels like makeup, I probably won't use it. I just like ot feel like my lips are moisturized.
-How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.)
No thank you. I look at art, I don't "do" art. I would probably make those poor art supplies cry! Markers have been known to run away or commit markercide rather than live with me. True story. (I deleted the other art supply questions since this sums it up!)
-How do you feel about Threadless tshirts?
:lol: I seriously thought these were actual shirts made without threads!! I was so confused and intrigued by how that would be possible! I didn't really look at to many, but I didn't see anything that jumped out right away.
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?
Honestly, I would buy $20 worth of Symphony bars and 3 Musketeers. If it is around Christmas time, different story. I will buy everything with a snowman on it in the entire store. Seriously. I do that every year.
Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature?YES! Canned would be best since anything fresh would get cooked in the box in the disgusting temperatures where I live.
Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract?
At this moment, I would prefer nature in color. I'm feeling very "naturist" right now. I do love black and white though. I tend to go more for surreal than abstract.
would you be interested in something like this?
https://lostcrates.com/how-it-works That actually looks pretty awesome!
Amigurumi, yes or no?Yes!! I would especially love a pattern that is explained well! I want to be able to make those!
I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples!
Dali, Van Gogh, Glenn Barr, and Edvard Munch are my favorite artists. Swams Reflecting Elephants is one of my all time favorites. I also love Church at Auvers. I'm really into Asian motifs in art right now, so anything like that as well.
If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be?
A family portrait with my dogs, with Moose actually sitting still and looking cute. He would probably be wearing Christmas moose ears. Dante would be dressed like an elf. I would die for such a painting! (I'm sooooo lame!!!)
Name your 3 favorite scents for candles
I have too many favorites to pick just three, but my favorite category of scents are "spicy/harvest/fall", "christmas", and "dark fruit"
Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea
Roasted (green tea that is roasted in these giant ovens in Japan ), Genmaicha, Jing Mai
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.
Meh. I wear makeup 3-4 times a year, at most. It's usually not things that require brushes either (since I don't really know how to use them). My "makeup routine" is tinted chapstick and mascara. Eyeshadow if I am feeling wild and crazy!
Do you like Legos? Especially mini-fig key chains, Lego block keychains, small Lego sets, etc?
I haven't played with Legos is FOREVER! I would totally enjoy it though!
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.
Bottle of Dee and Crowley.
Are there any characters that you love or identify with?
I identify with Danica Maupoissant in terms of her absolute devotion to her goal and inability to let anything interfere. I also totally related to Temperance Brennen from Bones. My entire family seriously swears that her character was based on me! I am in love with Daemon Sadi, David Bowie, Prince, Tim Curry, and Scarlett Johansson.
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 crochet. I don't really consider it art. I consider it something to keep my neuroses under control! I like to keep my hands busy while watching tv or something. I am incapable of relaxing!
Are there any Arcana Weenies that you MUST HAVE?
I'm interested in the soaps. Sleepy Hallow especially sounds lovely. I probably won't actually order though.
So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK?
I live in the middle of nowhere, so I would not expect anyone to come here. I have a full time job and classes with my dogs so I'm most often not home. I would need a little time to prepare, especially since I have a Moose of a dog that would likely scare the crap out of anyone.
Cthulhu: yay or nay?
Yay! Especially the awesome stuffed great old one!!
Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off?
Take classical singing lessons, learn to play the cello, learn to crochet those amiguri things, remember all that anatomy and physiology stuff I haven't looked at in ages! (Need to start preparing for Gross Anatomy but have been lazy!)

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
Waiting on my decants to finalize, but looks like a bottle of Sonnet D'automne, Golden Apple of the Sun, maybe Black Apple of Saturn (if it works), and Hygeia.
Do you have any interest in rocks? Not like, polished colorful stones.. but like... rocks. With geologic significance!
Like crystals? I like those.
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?
Light and drapey since it's so hot here. I like darker jewel tones and black.
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.
Page 100 has pictures of my babies!
Do you like/own/wear/want fairy wings or something of the like?
No thank you.
How do you feel about terrariums?
I don't really feel anything about them.
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.
I use a HoG soap or scrub and lotion, Cocoa pink Princess Poo shampoo and Shine + conditioner, St Ives apricot scrub, alba face moisturizer, and Arm and Hammer Naturals deodorant every day. I'm looking for a new wheat-free shampoo and paraben and silicon free conditioner. If you have a suggestion or wanted to send a sample I would love that! I also need a new facial moisturizer since I'm not in love with Alba, but everything I've tried (from Lush, specialty stores, etc) has not liked my skin. I have mountains of tea so I am good on that front. I tend to eat peanut butter and jam on gluten free crackers for breakfast at work everyday since my tummy won't let me eat first thing in the morning so jam would be great.
Jane Austen .. Yay or Nay?
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?
My favorite thing ever is the preface to the Picture of Dorian Gray "All Art is Quite Useless". I would prefer a book, poem, or play quote since I'm not really into the 'Hang in there" Kitty cat poster things. I love Shakespeare, Poe, Jane Austen, and all sorts of "older" literature. Anything like that would be rockin!
Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you?
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?
Story and characters are what drag me in. The graphics are not nearly as important. I want to care about the characters, empathize with them. Otherwise, it's not very good in my opinion.
If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it?
Lemon Meringue, Pomegranate Fig, Spice Trade, Vanilla Bean
if you could have a salon scent made, based on any artwork(s) what would it be?
Probably on Waterhouse's Siren or Miranda. I would expect Siren to be dark and resiny, with aquatic notes, and musk for sensuality.
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'm very much a scientist, but since that is my job, it's not what i want to do while "relaxing". I do love to crochet though.
What's 'your' song/your theme song?
As my best friend says :
What would be your superpower?
Telepathy, telekinetics, ability to be young forever (and grant that to whom I chose, like a vampire), and ability to make money appear!
Witchee, would you like a gently used BPAL tshirt?
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!
I'm good with anything as long as it's gluten free. Oats and granola would have to be certified gluten free or I could get very sick. I especially love dried figs and 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 couldn't really wear it often because of my job and since I'm lazy too, I would probably never put it on while home. =p
If you're interested in a handmade pouch/cover for an item you have (phones, tablets, books, keys, kettles...), what would your ideal pouch/cover have? Design, material, additional functionality/features like pockets or lights or secret hidey-holes?
No really. It's just one more thing for my cats to try to eat.
Would you like a photo collage based around your interests/favorite colors/favorite themes?
If you're crafty, are you interested in spoonfeather? And if so, what things there delight your eyes?
Googling did not give me any help to figure out what this is asking.
Colors! What are your favorite colors and what colors do you not like? Pictures and links, people!
I love Red, Black, Dark Blue, darker greens. I HATE pastels and yellow.
What is your favorite word?
What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length?
I live in Florida. 'Nough said.
Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives?
Tarts and jars are first, tealights second. I like votives, but not as much.
What's your favorite flavor? Sour, sweet, bitter, salty?
SALTY!!! Sour is a close second.
So, are there any online gaming witchees who covet purchasable in-game items or other gamer-y stuff? (yup, geek question)
I am clean! *twitch*
Anyone doing anything cool for Mabon (or the start of fall, if you aren't pagan?
It's not really something I celebrate since Florida doesn't really have seasons. Celebrating Autumn when it's 97 degrees out seems almost patronizing.
What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee?
HATE starbucks. I am Anti-Starbucks. All their coffee tastes burnt! I do like the Dunkin Donuts Original Roast coffee.
Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store?
I would love a hand in a jar!
I just noticed that Cocoa Pink has 5 ml Perfume Atomizers. Yay or nay? Scents you would like? Scents you would NOT like?
I prefer BPAL for my perfume needs, I do like Boo Boo Lemon Noel though.
