13 of 17 ? Roundup




Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com

No, thank you

Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to?
-Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...)

Not yet, but I'll come back to this if something occurs to me.

If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits.

It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference?

I do wear socks, I prefer longer length and if they have toes like gloves have fingers - so much the better!

Would you be open to previously-loved books?


What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP?

I prefer partial bottles, actually. I like a lot of variety and I go through scent really slowly (imps last me over a year).

So what are your favorite fandoms?

Tim Burton prior to Planet of the Apes (though I do like Sweeney Todd and Sleepy Hollow), Twin Peaks, Nightmare Before Christmas *always*, anything Mythos-related. Hellraiser. Other fandoms I think I answered in the podcast question.


I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so!

I'm not that fond of lavender, and I don't know France well enough to know what else to ask for. Feel free to surprise me!

are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both?

N/A (though I love Tarot art)

World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally?

I'd be curious to have an Astrology reading done

Does my Witchee need any magical supplies?

A spell kit for luck wouldn't be amiss

Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)?

Bar soaps and candles are always good


Favorite gemstones?

Hematite, garnet, amber, tiger's eye and opal

If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky?

I love filigree, steampunk, Victorian, Art Nouvea and Gothic
Any love of pirates or SCA?

I miss the SCA, and I do love pirates

Is there anything you would like from Disney World?

No, thank you

Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong?

Not a Potterhead

How do you feel about chokers?

Love them!


Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type?

I fear our damp winter climate would ruin such a thing, our slight overhang wouldn't provide much protection.

Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year?

I do live near a Joe's, I'm looking forward to their pumpkin spice coffee. Of course my absolute favorite is their candy cane Joe-joe's, but we're not quite there yet.

Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?

I do cook and like exploring various cuisines. Can;t think of anything I especially want at the moment (other than more food huggers - those are so awesome). Surprise me! (provided it's vege friendly)

I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??

I'm good, thank you, though it reminds me I miss having a bike

What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.

A Lisa Snellings October is Coming poppet. Except the zombie poppet, I have that one.
Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?

For sentimental value, sure


Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like?

The four leggeds are super fussy. The kitties like Greenies exclusively, and the pup does trachs and bully sticks (the circular ones last longest). None of them really play with toys.

Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?

Any of the Curses, Vampire Wine & Champagne, Legends of Horror Cinema or NAlloween blends (except Vanilla Bat), Potion n.113, Pumpkins 7 & 14

Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things)

Harvest Festival or Orchards of Hell Atmos, or the Bloodbath BO from etsy. Beautiful Implacable Tyrant or Halr Loosened and Soiled Mid Orgies HG.


Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?-
If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?

I do have a steam account, I believe I'm psuke or psuke1 there.
How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)?

I practically never wear scarves, but I do love a good cowl.

Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
-Like booze? What kinds?
-Like Wine? What kinds?

I'm grouping these because we pretty much never drink. I do like a good cider, and in Colorado Springs, CO there was a beer called Laughing Lab that I totally adored, but can't find outside that state. New Belvedere was the brewing company, I think. My favorite alcohol ever is called Strega, and we do reds in this house.

Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors!

I would invent an occasion to wear something like that if you made it for me

For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies?

We love the black & white horror, and most of the horror up to about the 80's. Japanese ghost movies are also awesome. Fan made merch for the classic b&w would be fantastic!


Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/

Any of the bar soaps would be lovely!

What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?

Witches, grim reapers, spiders, webs and bats. I'm over zombies. Like, really over.

Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate?

I do eat candy. Sometimes I think I eat too much candy, but we'll not go into that. Smarties and bottle caps, or similar would be awesome! Specialty candy and chocolate also welcome.
Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have?

Not a fidget spinner, but some other kind of desk toy could be fun

Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?

I love zentangle! I've done it a few times, but now I need glasses to do it or it makes my eyes hurt.

Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?

Fascinators and mini hats definitely!

What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?

Honey or candy could be tasty. We don't really use jam

Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy?

Yarn subscription boxes, or maybe the Goth Black Box would be more my speed. I did Julep for awhile, but canceled as I just couldn't keep up. I do the EC Boom!box and like that one,

Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.?

My 20 (or even 30) year says "Awesome!", but now I wouldn't know where I'd wear it.
How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes?

I don't like to much music these days, but when I do it's mostly Youtube or Google Play.

Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book?

Err, not to get overly political, but I'm avoiding Amazon. Kobo or B&N work great though! And physical books are always welcome. Scary, classic and horror are all fine, but please no zombies or supernatural porn (a la Charlaine Harris or Anita Blake) - I've read my fill of those.

Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders?

Any are good. I don't have a tart burner, but sometimes tarts smell strong enough wihout heating (like the Moonalisa tarts). Weenie candle holders are always fun, and I wouldn't say no to an oil burner.

Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?

Oh, yes! I knit and crochet, bead and wire wrap. I'm missing all my supplies - they're in storage a few hundred miles away. Well, I have my Addi Click interchangeables, some double points and yarn. But the rest are.


Do you want wax melts?
I have no burner, but I've gotten sample wax melts from Moonalisa and just place them around and it works fine.


I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would be interested in?

YUZU! (Sorry to shout, but it's *impossible* to find here, unless I want to pay crazy shipping costs from specialty orchards)

I'm in The Netherlands. Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in?

I'm not sure...try me.

Bath & Body Works - love them or hate them? If the former, fave product types?

Not so much a fan

how would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? if you are on board with that, would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around?

I'd love one! Something for 20+ bottles, for when my collection and I are reunited.

if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?

Cowls, mitts, socks. I don't wear many scarves, and I never wear mittens.

Nail wraps - yay or nay? Would including a small manicure set to go with them help?

My job is too hard on my nails for wraps.

If so, any favorite characters?

Nightmare Before Christmas. I *loved* Little Mermaid, but not so much from a merch perspective.
And to be more specific about Disney: How do you feel about Beauty and the beast?

Eh. Little Mermaid was the last Disney that sent me over the moon. I've enjoyed others, but not loved them

And what about Harry Potter related items?
Pokemon? Any favorites?

Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)?

No candy corn or Peeps, please. And if I never see another zombie it will be too soon. The only exceptions would be art from Ursula Vernon or Lisa Snellings.

What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap?

Figurines (smallish), smallish prints, knitted oddities, jewelry

What rares are you dying to try?

Eve, Ava, Monsterbait Underpants - this one mostly because I'm curious about the hype.

Do you like comic books and/or graphic novels?

I loved Sandman, early Transmet and The Invisibles. I'm willing to try more Warren Ellis stuff. I read Girl Genius, Dresden Codak and Gunnerkrigg Court (all online) when I remember.


Are you ok with homemade food?
Yes, provided it's vegetarian

If you are ok with decorations, do you have a preference for table-top, wall hanging, or window decorations?

I'd love decorations, Give me all the decorations.

How do you feel about stationary and/or papercrafting supplies?

I am kind of a stationary supplies slut, although I'm not such a fan of the pastel flower-type that seems ubiquitous, I like darker themes, or filigree. Gorey-style Victoriana - I think there's a Gorey shop somewhere that used to have stamps that were fabulous. Victorian/iligree washi tape is good, too.

How do you feel about kitschy/silly Halloween jewelry?

It's fabulous! Only at Halloween, but I'll wear the ridiculous plastic spider rings, and plastic pumpkins and the whole nine.

Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath?
