Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi?
Scrubs are always useful, and Snow Wolf, His Sweater, and Rosy Cheeked all sound nice, scent-wise

Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened?
Yuletide Mariner is one of my favorite scents from Paintbox


Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink?
never used anything from them


How do you feel about pomanders?
sure!

How do you feel about savor soaps?
scrubs or moisturizers in the non-foody range, like pipe smoke or the balsam and cedar, or something citrusy sounds good.

Or Perfectly Posh?
never heard of them, so no idea

Favorite animals?
all of them! dogs, foxes, dragons, frogs, little songbirds, hummingbirds, even the fuzzy wee beastie that ate all of my pea seedlings last spring (my neighbor has rabbits...like, ALL of them it seems).

Weird question, but it's on my mind: Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff?
not a strong preference, but I like things I can use or things that have a purpose, and probably not a huge amount of soap-type stuff because I can only use so much. :D

Would you be interested in one of the Colorpop pallets? Anything else from Colourpop?
I have so. many. eyeshadows. probably set on the makeup front, though they look fun.

Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3?
either format is fine, and sure...holiday, non-holiday, quirky stuff you listen to because you hate holiday music, it's all good. :D

Do you like toffee or fudge?
love both


Do you have feelings about fruitcake? We're talking whiskey soaked homemade fruitcake, not a brick in a festive tin.

I've never had actual fruitcake, so I'd be down to try this. :D I am familiar with the old Claxton fruitbrick, and we make stollen every year and lebkuchen, which are sweet bread/cookie things with candied fruit (and I love both), but I've never actually had real fruitcake.

Any strong nail polish and/or makeup preferences?
I think I'm basically set on makeup, though I'm still hunting for a nice brick/tawny red family lip stain.

Nail polish I don't wear often, but I love shimmery/metallic/etc., and kind of intrigued by mattes, but not a fan or cremes or anything with a lot of glitter. If I have to fight to get it off later, I won't generally wear it.

Are you interested in anything from my etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com...winklentwilight(bags, stuffies, hats, fingerless mitts, lefse cozies...)
I love the knot bag style and that fox fabric is adorable.

How do you feel about amigurumi (little crochet stuffies...animals, characters, ornaments, etc.)?
love them, ornaments or stand-alone little things.


If I were to crochet you something wearable, do you have any preferences? Do you like hats, scarves, gloves, other? And would you prefer something fun and whimsical (e.g. fox face hat or owl mittens), something delicate and pretty (e.g. lacy wraps or scalloped boot cuffs), or just something like a basic, no frills beanie or cowl? Do you have a Ravelry account and a list of favorite patterns?

whimsical, pretty, basic, I love it all. Cowls, hoods, hats, handwarmers (just the tube with a thumbhole kind rather than the short finger version, I like my fingers free), or mittens, decorative scarf/shawlette type stuff that I can wear indoors as an accent rather than hidden under a heavy coat ...I'm not too picky and I LOVE wearing handmade things.

on ravelry I'm firechild, I have favorites and a ginormous queue, some for me, some for other people/projects

What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics?
love any tea except rooibos, or anything with licorice root
coffee, generally medium roast, no flavor or lightly flavored (though I can always mix in some plain)
I like hot cocoa, generally not flavored though, just plain chocolate version.


What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc?
pine/christmas tree scents (like Yankee mistetoe for reference), clean or citrusy scents mostly, votive, tealight, little jars, wax melts, any are usable around here.


Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen?
I love to cook, so sure. About the only herbs I don't cook with much are rosemary, thyme, and tarragon, but anything not heavy on any of those is great.


What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for?
other than knowledge/brainspace I wouldn't know how to answer this...patterns on ravelry?

What are your top places to get a gift card from? amazon, joann fabrics are probably my most-used shops, penzey's spices

 

Which holiday symbols/themes do you like the best (or least)? Such as Santas, snowflakes, reindeer, etc.
My favorite winter visual themes are snow/ice, winter landscapes, winter plants (holly, spruce trees, etc.), animals

 

Do you like puzzles? yes, both jigsaw type puzzles and brain teasers, especially word games.
