Catsup on SW questions 9/12



Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I like the magical rosemary notebook-  blank pages 
What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Not really  


Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you?  I don't do nail polish, but the scent All That Glitters sounds interesting.  Any product you suggest for bath time or lotion.   
Is there anything you'd like from the UK?  Twinings Assam Tea
Coffee Crisp bars,   Harrods Earl Grey #42 tea.  I'm sure there are other things like bath stuff.
Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from?
I love STTNG & Dr Who ( 11 is #1 in my book)


How do you feel about tea?  Tea runs in my veins.
Preferences? Rooibos is evil- even in a blend.  I love black teas.  Assam is my favorite.  All sorts of Earl Grey blends (Harney & Sons Victorian London Fog is a fave).  Chai blends are something of an autumn binge for me.
Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/)  I just started a wish list.  I'd not shopped here before.
Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/),  another new to me company, another wish list - bonus, I just ordered a gift for hubby.
Could not get this website to work & let me look at tea
do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest? I love Harney & sons & have a wishlist there Www.harney.com
What about tea tools or cups?  I've got a few tools on the various lists.  I would love a metal single mug brewer on a long handle- I just broke the one I've had for years.  The eternal hunt for a purple teapot is a thing.   
How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray?   I love candles a lot.  Atmo sprays I can scent linens with are lovely.  Incense I use a lot less- too heavy.
Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too?  Husband Bill and a pride of Overlords  (5 ranging from 2-18). I share treats & teas w/ Bill.  The kitties love little mousies to chase & store in my shoes.  In the opinion of the feline  overlords, though, the very best, most exotic gift/ offering is a feather.  Preferably from some bird that is not from here ( We are near Detroit MI).  Could be an Ohio pigeon & it would be exotic. If you have, or know a parrot that can spare a shed feather, or you find one on a walk somewhere, this could provide hours of entertainment.




would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? Oh, that would be lovely.  A pin or patch please.  Perhaps a leaf? Or something Witchy?





Art and artists - anyone dig any of this?  https://www.studiodesade.com/  (They also do masks, see here.)  
Not so much to my taste


If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn?  And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors?
Yes!  Always room in my studio for hand dyed yarn.  I do a lot of work with fingering weight/ sock yarn.  Colors- black & grey are my neutrals.  Purple, green, teal, blue are all in my general palette.  Deep garnet red is the only red I really wear . As to fiber, anything natural or a blend w/nylon (aka, sock yarn) 
what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy?  Halloween dishes - I have a cool platter with witches on it for serving, could use a couple of plates or a bowl.  
If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? Halloween dishes or candleholders, perhaps bits to decorate a wreath.





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.
Interested?  Always, especially if there is a recipe  with it.  This is one of my questions, so not really an issue.


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?? 
Honestly, I'm not hoping for a specific thing.  If you want a suggestion,  plan a long pampering spa/bath for me.  I'll bring the audio book & a glass of wine. 
Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself? I am a maker of things.  I very rarely am gifted by another maker.  If you make things of some sort, I would be delighted to have something you made.  If you are not into making that's cool too. If you like to buy tools, I have recently become fascinated with pretty/handmade crochet hooks - any size from 3 to 8mm. 


Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)? 
I adore Penzeys, but honestly, I have a huge spice rack & a Penzeys store in my area, so I probably have it covered.




Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty
Sorry, no I'm not much of a makeup person.




Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks
These are fun! I like the mermaid, Cheshire cat, or Jackolantern smile 
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?  Yes.  Fabrics I like from her list: 14, 15, 16, 18, 36, 40 - the one with the "sailor" guy looks like my husband.



are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ?  Take a peek  & let me know if you might like to try something
I love her lavender bath fizzies & lip balms like pear or vanilla .




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!
I love all the crazy kit kat flavors. I've seen really neat crochet patterns- as long as it's charted I can work with it.  Ideally something like motifs I can repeat to make things. 
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 always hesitate on buying nice bath oil - somehow it always seems too frivolous, even though I use it over a long time.



Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)?
Perhaps bath Streusel & a candle for a nice evening's soak.  Maybe a lotion.
Putney Road sounds really lovely. 
GOAT sounds decadent.
Cathedral of Pumpkins I enjoyed last year & would happily repeat.
Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)?
Not seeing anything currently offered.  This said, if they pop up a TKO atmo spray, or bath oil ( does TKO bath oil even
Exist?) That would be amazing.
