SwitchWitch Spring 2016 Q&A!

Sign in to follow this  


Do you like colouring? Yes, but I don't really do it very often. I've got a mandala coloring book and a pack of colored pencils, so I'm probably set.

If you like Lush, are there any UK-only things you're desperate to get? I'm not sure what's UK-only, but I loooooove Lush. I'm a fiend for the Charity Pot fragrance and most of the bath bombs, bath melts, ets.

Crochet goodies yes or no? If yes, what kind of goodies? Absolutely yes! I'm down for anything, especially bags.

Do you have any allergies to animals/smoke/food etc? Nope.

Graphic novels: I'm not really familiar with any in particular.

Nail Polish? I have an enormous collection back home in NC. None here in CT.

Crafty? Very. Mostly all about the painting right now; I do also like free-hand embroidery.

BPTP Products? I have not tried any.

Nail Wraps? No thank you. They don't seem to work with my fingernail shape, really.

Teas/Spices/Spice Rubs/Specialty Ingredients from a local tea & spice shop?
Yes. 100% yes. Especially if there's a good ginger tea. I'm digging ginger teas lately.

In Regards to loose/bagged tea:
I have means of doing loose tea, though I would actually really love to get more of those cheesecloth sachet bag things. I'm almost out of my disposable teabags.

Would you be interested in any handmade critters? Stuffed animals, knit or crochet beasties, or anything remotely similar? If so, please give an example or five: sure! I got a little crocheted goose a few years ago that I love dearly. Any bird-related critters are great. Others would be like...a seal. I like seals.

Since this is the Spring Fools' round, is there anything that goes with the theme of April Fool's Day or spring that might be fun to add to your package? Flowers (seeds, real, or handmade) prank-related items, a court jester's cap? Feel free to be creative and crazy with this one! I love the idea of flowers. I've been obsessing over flower headbands and crowns lately. I want to swoosh and dance my way through spring.

Pet owners - would you like any kind of toy or supply for your pet? I don't have any pets here. :(

Geek paraphernalia! Almost everyone here has SOME sort of geek-love, whether it is Harry potter, Horror movies, graphic novels, science, etc. So would you be interested in any kind of items related to your geek-ish interests? Of course.

Any yarn, plastic, metal, or fabric sensitivities? Pure wool seems to make me itch a bit. Wool blends are fine.

would you like pretty stationery/note cards, etc, for writing snail mail? Oh yessssss. Pay no mind to my overflowing box of the stuff. A girl is allowed to collect, damn it.

If you could have any BPALs right now (GC, LE, HTF) what would they be? Give examples of at least a few of each category: Titania, Alice, Snake Oil. I can't think of any LEs I'm really craving. HTF--Chaste Moon '05. Always Chaste Moon.

Any places you would like gift cards from? Torrid, Ulta, Amazon, any magical/witchy stores would be great. Not necessary at all, mind you.

Do you wear make-up? Any brands you like? Color preferences? I do! I am actually looking for new eyeshadow since a lot of mine...broke? Traveling is hard. :( I like a lot of shimmery stuff, mostly purples/bronzes/golds, but also greens. I don't wear a ton of blue because I can never seem to pull it off unless it's like a bold turquoise. No major brand loyalty except to certain Urban Decay products.

Junk food and candy? Yes.

Witchee, regarding your fave TV shows, would you be interested in the associated DVDs? Fan books? Ehhh...no thank you on DVDs and fan books. I just don't have a lot of room for them.

Do you need any items for your kitchen (linens, gadgets, cooking supplies, etc.)? You know, I could do with some shot glasses and a good Nikki-flavored coffee mug. Preferably one that doesn't break easily.

Gardens/plants: I am dreaming of spring, dear witch: Do you like plants? Do you have any? Indoor potted plants? A balcony bed? A yard? Do you want/need anything? Housemate and I spent like 4 hours discussing gardening plans the other night. We've got some boxes outside our cabin and are planning some guerrilla gardening elsewhere on our site. By all means, dear Witch. By all means.

If I were to make you something based on one or more interests mentioned in your Q'aire/blog, would you prefer something you could wear, something that hangs on a wall, or something that sits on a shelf (or couch or wherever) ?

I would need more information on what kind of interests you're targeting.
Are you in need of BPAL storage?

Kind of, but I don't actually have any of my BPAL with me right now. I had no room in my luggage.

Hi, witchee! Do you like candles? Incense? Wax melts?

Oh my Lord, yes. I generally don't burn candles in the house except on my altar, but I have this adorable owl tart warmer that the housemates also love and we always have a tart burning in that. Actually, we're currently really running low on tarty goodness, so if you see any you think I'd like, go for it! I just ask...please, nothing that smells like baked goods. I live with humans who will get grumpy if they're tricked by fakery scents.
BAGS! Do you like/want/need any kind of bags? Purses (big, small, medium), storage type bags, totes, re-usable grocery bags, make up or craft supply bags . . . anything? And if so, please give as much info as possible about type, color, use, fabric, etc.

You have no idea how much I love bags. I generally prefer cross-body style bags and tote bags, but look, bags are great no matter what species they are. As far as specifics...I like bright colors, funky patterns, generally prefer fabric over leather (I'm not opposed to leather, I'm just more attracted to funky, brightly-colored bags than like, respectable adult purses made from leather). My current purse is this deep eggplant purple cross-body hobo bag with an embroidered tree of life on it that I got at the Greater Good store in Minneapolis-St. Paul...Jesus, I sound like a goddamn hippie right now, don't I? (I am.)
Here's a question. I make handmade journals/albums/smashbooks/junk journals. Would you be interested in anything like that?
OMG YES PLEASE. I really love journalling about my work with kids and basically doing a hybrid between a scrapbook and a diary. I'd prefer a smaller book--I had a full 8x11 journal last season and it was uncomfortably large. Like those journals that are, what, 6x8? That's a perfect size. Oh man.
If you like Harry Potter stuff, what house do you belong in? If you like Game of Thrones, what family?
Ravenclaw, and according to the Buzzfeed post, I'm House Arryn, and Buzzfeed says "You’re out of your damn mind, but no one wants to be the one to tell you. Sorry." Was it because I chose "COME AT ME BRO" as my motto? Or was it the falcon? Look, I just like birds, okay?
What's your favorite animal/totem? Would you be interested in a small figurine of said animal from this etsy user?
I am a goose. And those figurines are truly beautiful.
Anything exciting to you in PBSW's Spring Collection?
Why, yes, yes it does. The Afternoons and Eiderdowns sounds lovely, as does April Fool, Crickhollow Cottage, Sky Blue Sky. Really, anything. I have no PBSW products these days. I used all my Sweetcheeks stuff and then forgot to buy more?
Witchee, are you interested in this kind of music (it's one of my favorites)[Tartanic - uncivilized]?
Um, YES.
Oh dead Witchee, how do you feel about Sakura Matsuri? Do you like Green Tea and Sakura flavored desserts/treats? Decorations or jewelry with a cherry blossom theme?
I think cherry blossoms are lovely. I also like green tea.
Hey, witchee! If I were to send you a garment, what size would I send?
Depends on the garment.

What style of bag from here (if any) would you like? You can easily narrow down the choices on the side menu - but I only want to know the style, not the pattern! ;)

a messenger bag or tote bag. But I'd also take smaller bags. I just. I love the artists there--I actually own the Fairytale Tarot, although it's currently MIA.
