Would you like anything from Spireside candles? https://spireside.com/
I'm not really up for candles at this point, but the whipped soaps in Flight of the Pegasus and Beauty Sleep look good. And poking around in the candles, pretty much all of the holiday ones really do sound amazing, especially the Yeti and Jungle Bells and Wizard Ball scents.
Are you interested in anything from Bird and Blend Tea Company?
Snowball teabags look delightful. Generally, caffeine free chocolate flavors are my jam.
On the decorating spectrum, do you head more towards classic/stylish or towards cheesy/kitsch? Definitely the latter, but not country kitchy, more geeky/silly.
Fiber artists! (Knitters, weavers, crocheters etc) How would you like to get some nice yarn? No thank you.
Is there any animal you feel a strong connection with? Corgis, tortie cats, bats, dragons, penguins, the owl that lives in my backyard, our ball python
Books - there is a TON of info in my other blog posts and everything I've read in the past 12 years is in Goodreads, so I will send you there.
Cowl or fingerless mitts (these are the only things I'll have time to do.)
- if a cowl, do you want something like a double length cowl, or a cowl that looks like a shawl, a large bulky cowl, or a short tighter type cowl? (not necessarily these patterns, although if you love the pattern I can do it. I welcome photos of what you want.)
- if fingerless mitts, how long do you like them over the fingers, how far past the wrist, and how large are your hands, wrists, and arms in inches?
I would ABSOLUTELY love a double length or shawl-like cowl.
Is merino wool ok or do you have allergies I need to be aware of? (most of my stash is Merino or a blend of Merino, Cashmere, or Silk.) Marino and blends are fine.
