switch witch 2016



Hi Witch!! Here's this years edition of the Switch Witch help blog :) Past entries may or may not be applicable at this point, I've changed quite a bit in some ways since the last time I did this.

Some general stuffs -

WISHLISTS - my bpal wishlist is in my signature. I also have...
Amazon - https://amzn.com/w/SQH5WXN77PBP (I'm not sure how that works, if you can see ALL my lists from that link - I have a few different categories there (wish list, books, art...).
Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/people/zombiewench/favorites/items-i-love?ref=favs_index_1

I'm not expecting a whole lot, since I'm handmaking everything for my Witchee due to a serious lack of funds, but I love Switch Witch - I've made some really wonderful friends because of it!

-What would you like from the Motherhood update? - (In no particular order...) Dinner at the Diviner's Hut, Good Morning London, Heel, My Little Grotesque, Outlaw, Perfect Fifths, Stonehenge at Dusk, The Great Python Snake, Vampire Night at the Movies. If I had to pick ONE scent to try...Probably Outlaw. But Perfect Fifths, Stonehenge, Vampire Night are all up there, too.

Knitted stuff - It kind of depends...i'm in Florida so won't get a whole lot of use out of anything.

Beer - I don't drink a whole lot anymore, though I wouldn't be opposed to some fun (lighter) varieties.

Caramel - YUM! Though I usually do better with it *in* things, I have a lot of dental work that doesn't play nice with super chewy things.

What types of things do you like to wear? - I'm REALLY into boho/gypsy/faerie type stuff, and things in bright colors. My closet doesn't always reflect that at the moment though, I'm slowly working on updating it! Mostly I just like *fun* clothes. I get envious of the fact that my 3 year old daughter gets to wear fun bright colorful sparkly poofy lacy stuff, and it's hard for me to find anything like that in adult sizes!
And booze? - I tend to like sweet wines. And rum. My favorite rum is Kraken.

Would you be interested in home made food items? - Sure! Breads and cookies are always good :)

Would you be interested in project bags/pouches? - Meh, I have so many bags already.

Are you allergic to any fiber or do you know what kind of yarn you prefer? - I have a slight allergy to wool.

Would you want a quilted pot holder? - Sure!

Do you have any prefered flavour of shortbread? - There's flavors??

What are you interested in from the recent BPAL and BPTP updates? (Lilith, Lunacy, etc.) - I listed the Motherhoods I'm interested in earlier. I'm not interested in any of the Fatherhoods (which is a first), but I DO want the Coconut Meat SN and Starstruck Libra like WHOA. Those are such big needs it's a little ridiculous!!

Would you like hibiscus seeds? - If they'll grow well in Florida, then sure!

Is there anything you'd particularly like to get from the UK? - Can you buy me a house there? :rofl: Um...my favorite place in England is Stratford-upon-Avon, we spent a few weeks there when I was 18 and I freaking LOVED it. So something fun from there would be really awesome!

Is there anything you would like to get from Japan? - Some fun Disney stuff that we don't have here, or some neat Sailor Moon goodies :D (Chibi-usa, Diana, Chibi-Chibi, Dead Moon Circus, and Sailor Cosmos are my favorites!)

Does anyone like fleece character hats? Like these: http://wonderlandonl...like-fleece-hat? What kinda characters would you like to see?
Eh, I wouldn't get much use out of anything like that in FL.

Do you like things with Pumpkin (or Pumpkin Spice?)

I could use some fun bright footie socks, like what you wear with sneakers, but that's about it. I have so many fun socks I'm already not wearing!

Anyone a nail polish fan? What colors interest you?
I am, though I don't wear it much anymore, with 2 little kids I usually just can't be bothered to deal with it. I could use a good basic shimmery turquoise though, and I tend to be a sucker for anything holographic, the more holo the better!

Do you decorate for Halloween all year? If not, what level of decor do you have for Halloween?
I don't. And I am sorely lacking in the Halloween decoration department!

Indoor/outdoor Halloween decorations? What do you do, and what would you prefer to receive?
Indoor is better right now (my next house WILL have better outdoor space to decorate!).

What's your preferred Halloween decor style: classic/traditional (skulls, pumpkins, bats), kitchsy/cute, retro, elegant/Victorian, horror/macabre?
Kitchsy/cute! And retro!

What's your candy preference?
I like chocolate and coconut (like mounds bars), and salted chocolate anything is good, too. Okay, and peanut butter and chocolate. :D

Do you have an Etsy wish list, and if so, what's your user name there? I do, zombiewench is my name there!

candles, wax melts/tarts? Eh, sometimes? I like the idea of candles, but don't actually use them very much.

Tokyo Milk? Yea or Nay? No? I've never tried anything from there. One company is enough for me lol.

If you are ok with knitted things, what colors do you like? I tend to like cool colors (and turquoise is my favorite). Also rainbows, though I tend to like not straight traditional colors - like replace red with magenta, blue with turquoise...
If striping, what two (or more) colors together? I love black and white striped stuff. And, though I don't usually like the colors separately, I LOOOVE orange and magenta together.
If you want yarn, what colors do you want? Anything fun and bright is awesome.
Are you interested in fabric? Again, what colors, what themes, etc. Again, anything fun and bright. Nothing flowery unless it's funky.

What are your tea and/or coffee preferences? Loose leaf / whole bean or bagged / ground? Do you have a favorite type? Flavor? Retailer? Nope, nope nope.

If you could receive one handmade item - everything from knitted or crocheted gloves and scarves to sewn bags to fanart or original art, what would you prefer? Whatever my witch wants to make.

What are your favorite fandoms, if any? Oh booooy... :lol: Blizzard games - especially World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. Bioshock - I have a large collection of Big Daddies, but desperately need a Big Sister. Portal. Brian/Wendy Froud (I have her set of 3 faerie dolls, and a bunch of their books). Harry Potter. I'm really into DC Superhero Girls right now. Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer (together and separate) (does that count as a fandom? lol). Harley Quinn. There's probably more, hah.
Skincare- do you use a particular routine? What products would you absolutely not use? I use Lush products. Pretty much the only stuff I've found that works well for me.

Bath/shower products? Lush, and Yves Rochers.

BPTP products? Pre-owned okay? Sure! Not a big fan of bath oil or hair gloss though.

Essential oils and aromatherapy oils- yay, or nay? Eh.

Favorite animal? Unicorn? Phoenix? Mermaid? :lol:

Do you have a kindle? If so...

Would you be interested in Kings Game by Lisa Millraney?

Sure! I have so many books on my TBR list, and another huge list that I want to buy/borrow, but as someone who writes and self-publishes (under pen names), I love supporting others in groups I'm in :)

The second part of the Haus of Gloi update is live tomorrow (the 25th)- is there anything you're interested in? No thanks

I'm going to the NY Renaissance Faire tomorrow- anything you'd like me to look for? Take me with you?? Lol. I love Ren Faires! I can't think of anything specific, but I would probably love most anything from a Faire.

Do you celebrate Mabon? Would you like "witchy" or pagan decorations and objects? For example, pentacle wall hangings, mabon poppets, corn dollies, ritual candles, etc? My religious stuff is so weird right now. We're Methodist, but my background is kind of all kinds of things, and I'm currently reading a book about how both paganism and Christianity can work together. So I'm not actually celebrating holidays yet, but may get to that point in the future? I know, odd answer.

Anyone hankering for Craftsy (http://www.craftsy.com) classes? Through tomorrow all classes are $20 or under. No thanks.

Would you be interested in any of the following: jigsaw puzzles; puzzle books (like word searches or crossword puzzles or suduko); coloring books; card games; board games? Feel free to elaborate on preferences for any of the above! I love that kind of stuff, but it's not always practical with small kids who eat things in the house. Plus I just don't have time.

Elements and Artifacts? I didn't see anything that really caught my eye this time around.

Tarot cards/oracle decks - yay or nay? If yay, do you already have any? Which ones? I love tarot decks, and have a small collection! I have...So Below (my favorite deck, and the only one I've ever been able to read, even if I don't read well, lol), Aquarian Tarot, Universal Fantasy Tarot, Shadowscapes, Penny Dreadful, Fantod (Edward Gorey, not exactly tarot, but still in my collection!), and the Amanda Palmer deck, from a Kickstarter a while back. I also have both sets of the Faerie Oracle cards from Brian Froud.
You have now also made me go look at tarot decks, and I've added some interesting looking ones to my amazon wishlist :lol:
Cryptozoology/cryptids (Big Foot, lake monsters, chupacabra, etc.) - yay or nay? If yay, any favourites? I don't really pay attention to a lot of that stuff, but sure! It could be fun :D
