Favorite gemstones?
I think this is asked on the ?are but, opal, moonstone, alexandrite, rose quartz. Honestly I am pretty keen on most gemstones, fine and not.

I do like pirates, I do not do SCA

Caramel apples >_>

Not too keen on tight neck stuff.




Here's a few questions from me: 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?
Oh that is very cute, but I am terrible at decor, so probably not so much.


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 live nearish to a Trader Joes.


Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets?
I love cooking and baking. I use Penzeys spices but would love to try some local to you spices or blends. I am always needing extracts!


I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related??
I do not think so?


What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice.
Something hand crafted from my witch, I really really love hand crafted stuff. If you are not crafty witch, I would love if you picked something special for me, like, something you thought long and hard about and decided it spoke to you!
A handmade blanket (sewn, crocket/knit) whatever would be especially welcome.


Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps?
No thanks.




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?
I do have young humans, the three year old would love something. She has wide interests, but adores stickers so she would probably like a sheet of stickers stuck in.


Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update?
Boogieman? Vampire Vanilla Bat, kinda curious about the wines and champagnes.
I am super keen on all the Summer Ice creams though.


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)
I will be doing a large order from there soon, will update after I do.

I am. I am always after plushes from the games I play/ed. Also zip up hoodies from them welcome too. I play World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone, Left4Dead, Borderlands (all), Plants versus Zombies, The Division, Mech Warrior, and honestly lots more.


If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist?
I do not have on currently, I will work on this though.

Simple eyelet scarf - super yes

Lacy and fuzzy - not my taste
Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) - yes
Leafy! - super yes


Like beer? What styles most appeal to you?
Not really, but I like hard ciders


Like booze? What kinds?
Meads, cordials


Like Wine? What kinds?
I love sweet wines, and medium dry. I prefer reds but I do not mind a good Gerwurzchemener (spelling) or late harvest white. I also like wines from other fruits than just grapes (mead, plum wine, etc)


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!
No thank you, my hair is not my fave and adding stuff is not my thing.


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?
Hocus Pocus of course! Love anything related.




Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/
Very cool, deodorant cream, (maybe activated charcoal), hand balm, lip salve, liquid soap. Looks great in general!


What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from?
I prefer, pumpkins, bats, cute ghosts, cats. Dislike stereotyping witches, spiders.

I love candy. Being dairy soy free currently makes it hard tho. Been wanting to try No Whey! Brand candies as I could eat them.


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?
I dont think so.


Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art?
Never tried it, looks cool though.


Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc?
Clips maybe, cannot do much else.


What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy?
Yes yes yes. A hundred yeses. These are some of my absolute fav things.

I like actual books and kobo books (epub files) but not sure about classic horror


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?
I currently use none but would be interested in an oils diffuser I could use with bpal?


Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials?
Fancy yarns always welcome, sewing starter stuff.




I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want?
I am kinda into silly Toki doki stuff, so I would not mind that, also I used to rrally love Jrock/Jmetal and be an anime junkie. Let me know if you want more info on my anime preferences.


How do you feel about nail wraps?
I love them but my nails do not, they get torn up. If you know a way to keep nails whole then yes!


if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)?
Hand warmers/fingerless gloves would be okay, a lap blanket would be great though.


- would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers?
I probably would use both. I cannot do wool stuffs or hemp, itchy fibers make my skin red.


If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why?
This is such a hard question! I would be Jadzia Dax from Star Trek DS9, she was symbiotically fused with a Trill so even when she dies she will love on in Dax. Also, she is one badass mofo.


If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why?
The future, like where we are doing space travel and exploration. I want to live in the beautiful far future with peace and no money and replicators and instantaneous short travel.


If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite?
Felicia Day, Anne Bishop, Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I think it would be fun :P


Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best.
They are beautiful but with the little kiddos would not get much wear currently.


Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else?
Oh yes! Nursing shirt? Nerdy fabric maybe? Leggings maybe? A skirt? I would need to do measurements bc my body is all weird proportions currently.


Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends?
Not currently, no.




Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet?
Want to start sewing, I even have a machine, but nothing to use it on, no notations, etc.


Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for?
Sure. Needs to be breastfeeding safe if tea. Help finding myself, confidence, anti anxiety, making friends are all good ones.


Do you like poetry?
Honestly not really, no.


Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints?
Yes, yes yes yes.


Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness?
Oh sure! Unique fibers or colors super welcome as long as not itchy.

I will have to mull this more. I only donate to places I research heavily.
