https://www.poesieperfume.com/loose-leaf-tea  <---- would you be interested in receiving tea and / or scents from Poesie? 
—these are adorable. Yes I love this place! literally anything from the Halloween line. I am open to all teas but I prefer teas on the sweeter side. They all look amazing and make me realize I need a fancy tea cup and a loose leaf tea steeper thingy. I typically use bag tea and when I use loose leaf I use a tiny strainer for powdered sugar. 😅


I have been remiss--witchee (or anyone needing a minion), I am notorious for homemade caramels, shortbreads both savory and sweet, and catnip/catnip laced toys.  I've also started playing with homemade marshmallows and fruit candies.  Any interest?

—I would be down doe shortbread and homemade fruit candies! 




I happen to live near this amazing place.  Do you have any interest is anything that I could pick up there?  The have hand made pottery, cookie molds, cookbooks with historical recipes all sorts of good stuff.  https://www.gcv.org/shop/

— the parchment paper, ladies hand fan, and quill would be great! 




Would you be interested in anything from KBShimmer's new Fall nail polish collection or their Falloween collection?
—So many pretty colors! But I have a lot of polish coming so I will pass. 




Witchee, darlin', anything appeal from this goth-metal-Satanic Tea company, Pitch Black North? https://www.pitchblacknorth.com/category/all-tea

—1000000% yes! Any of the tea balls would be lovely and the SWEETEST MALEFICIA, throat of Lucifer,  & Satans Slumber both sound amazing! 


WITCHEE, WOULD YOU LIKE ANY OF THESE?  Don't just say "yes" -- please be specific about which ones you want the most!  

Brown Sugar Plum Butter

Pflaumenmus (also Plum Butter)

Cardamom Plum Jam

Star Anise Plum Jam

Ginger Peach Butter

Vanilla Peach Jam

Sweet Green Tomato Relish

Dill Green Tomato Relish

Huckleberry Jam

Apple Butter

Candied Jalapenos (delicious with cream cheese on burgers or crackers)

Lavender Vanilla Bean liqueur

Rose Petal liqueur

— the lavender vanilla bean and rose petal liqueur sound great as well as candies jalapeño! 



the other day I found the pattern I made for a small crocheted skull. I have made some before and included some herbs and oils and such, things that both smell good and are said to carry protective virtues, in the stuffing, and hooked them up to hang in a vehicle or such. Would any of y'all like one of those?

— OMG yea that sounds adorable and lovely! 



is anyone a Daredevil fan??  I'm going to be working with Christopher Brewster who is Daredevil in the suit (i.e. the stunt performer but not the FACE of the actor... but when the suit is on... its Brewster).  I worked with him on something else... and he was super cool... excited to get to work with him again... but if that's anyone's fandom... I wanna know LOl -not my bag ☺️




Would you like any of Snag Tights’ Halloween offerings and if so, what size? These look awesome! E or F



Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preferance?


 Whatever my witch wants as long as the gift is thoughtful. 



Witchee, do you like tea? If so, what kind?

Yes! Green, black, peppermint. all the teas!! No licorice teas though. 


Witchee, do you want anything?  Shirts, mugs, postcards from Anarchist Seattle, Portland, or New York.... https://www.redbubble.com/people/litlnemo/shop?artistUserName=litlnemo

No thanks. 


Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along!

Yes! I have no idea on a style but I know your first deck should be gifted. Aesthetic wise I dig anything holographic with blacks and blues. 


Are you interested in receiving a burned CD of music? If so, name of genres, artists, styles that you are into or would like more of to explore.

Yessssssss. Shitty punk rock, metal, classical. Send me your favorite bands! 


Do you have an Amazon wishlist?  If you do and you're ok with getting stuff from it, please share the link!

Nope. Sorry. 


Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay?  Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa?  What are your thoughts?

Yay for smells! 


Candy corn – love it or loathe it?

I'm a knitter.  I have some knitted washcloths done, and can knit up more.  Would you like some?  Also, if answered soon enough, I can maybe get a scarf done.  Would you like one?  What colors would you like?  Thin or thick?  With or without fringe?  Are you allergic to any fibers - wool, cashmere, angora, alpaca?


Yes! Blacks, whites with the black flecks , or teals. Medium thickness, medium fringe. Any fiber. Alpaca would be SUPER COOL! 




Witchee, darling, there's a *slight* chance I might be going on a trip next week and *might*, in the course of this trip, have access to Disneyworld goodies from Epcot and Magic Kingdom - any stuff you might desire? 

HOLY HELL YES! Disney Halloween. The freakin crocs in a size 8! Hocus pocus stuff! Any park exclusive Halloween items! 

A Halloween self serve resort mug if you hit up a resort. 😍



How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it.

Probably the gorgons 

is there anything you want from Lush?

freaking awesome! 


How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats??

Always down to try stuff! 



After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy!

1) https://www.catcoven.com/ 

HELL YES! This stuff is amazing! Love the cat butt pin, memento mori sticker, gravestone bookplate, nighttime reading sticker, cozy story time sticker, basically any patch but especially the grumpy toad, any of  the leggings or belt bags if they ever get back in stock . Basically everything! 


2)  https://www.mineralgypsy.com

OMG CRYSTALS! I LOVE CRYSTALS! Fluorite towers would be cool, a mystery box, just regular gems anything. I love crystals! 


3) https://www.redbubble.com/people/thelatestkate/shop

The axolotl is cute 


4) https://www.marikapaz.com/shop/

OMG the badger, THE OPPOSUM!!! SO cute I love all of this, big yes. 


5) https://www.faunwood.com

Yes to the inkbeasts. I love them. 


6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/

The sticker packs are amazing, Frog, raven, fawn, mantis, moth, & orchid octopus 


7) https://fiddlersgreenzine.com

not quite my style, but still cool. 


8 ) https://www.hedgespokenpress.com

cool, but not my style. 



Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality!?



What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific?

Yes! The weird mother Ahh real monsters shirt and weird mother ouiqi board pin 


Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you?

bar soaps & nail polish


I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection? I have mostly 12 x 12 and 10 x 10s  right now. Pics available upon request

that sounds super cool? 




Is there anything you'd like from the UK? 

I. I dont know. I didn't know it was an option. Is there UK specific Disney stuff? That'd be pretty rad!


Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from?

I'm into Lovecraft Country, new Sabrina, Mind Hunter, AHS, Beetlejuice, Hocus Pocus. Basically you cant go wrong with any Tom Burton  kooky movies.


How do you feel about tea?  Preferences?  Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/), Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest?  What about tea tools or cups?  

Yes to all the tea! I love tea and am still learning. I'd love tea cups or diffusers, especially a dainty beautiful one that says fuck or cunt.


How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?  

Yes! As long as they stick to like apple cider scents and baked good scents. You throw an amber musk in my house and it throws off the whole vibe. Also not gonna lie I love BBW 😂


Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?  

This is so sweet! I do! I have a kiddo who is 5 and love all things kinda spooky (skeletons, ghosts, vampires, frankenstein). 2 dogs - one named Lulu who is picky but likes soft treats and the other is Six who will eat a tin can. 2 Bettas  and a dwarf frog. Hot Lava (fish) and Timmy (frog)  live together and are my little ones, they're best friends.  Alabaster is my betta and he's my co-worker XD the office gets lonely. My husband would probably like eatables. 




would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders?

This would be super cool!





Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)  

WOW! Yes, this is awesome!


If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors?

no thank you I have so much yarn and I quit knitting in lieu of sewing. 😊


what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? 

Those blind box key chains or toys. Tokidoki, or Beetlejuice, or Hocus Pocus. You can usually find them at Barnes and Noble, Spirit, or Hot Topic.


If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with?

Probably craft supplies and candy. XD




what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups?  I even make things with berries I grow in my garden.  I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla.


I think this is so freaking cool! Syrups for sure. Lavender and lemon sounds amazing. 


Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?  For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself?? 
An acrylic sewing ruler, loungefly purse stuff, lushest Halloween collection 


Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself? 

Yes and yes! I’d love some wonderclips and sewing supplies/notions! 


Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)? 

Okay, I didn't know this was a thing. But, like yes! Some of your favorite spices. Surprise me!





Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty

Yes! I love tater rounds! Surprise me with your favorites. I'm always down to try something new!

The Jack Halloween Soap and Coagulation gloss looks a mazing. But seriously-loose pigments, candles, room sprays, mascara, cream shadows, balms, body sprays, bath bombs, ANYTHING I'd love!




Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks

The Jack-o-Latern mask is legit!


one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks? 





are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peak & let me know if you might like to try something

Yes! the Black Cherry Oatmeal soap looks legit! as well as the Avocado Almond, Lavender Peppermint, & Lavender!




Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me!

OMG. This is an option?! Uh yes! yes! candies, cute stationary, amazing little paper and hello kitty! Spooky cute stuff. I would love anything!


What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries.

I dont get my favorite face cream (vanishing cream from lush) or because it seems frivolous because its expensive and I can use alternatives that work okay. I also dont buy as many books because I can go to the library and borrow. I dont often craft because I feel the supplies are too expensive and taking the time is selfish.





Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)?

I like a lot of this!!


Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)?

Yes! Skeleton white hair gloss! Oktobernacht Hair Gloss, Pearl Seeker, Ten Lords a Leaping hair gloss, bat woman pendant,
