2020 Switch Witch Q&A

Sign in to follow this  



All Questions as of 10/5 should be answered. If it isn't listed below the answer was "No thank you, No, or doesn't apply" and this makes it easier to read :)


do you have good feelings about Funko Pop? I do get some Funko Pops but not a ton. If you want to get me a Funko then any of the Hellraiser or The Shining ones would be awesome and I don't have any Funkos from those movies so pick whatever you like. 



Witchee, assuming you like home made/home canned condiment goodies, what is your spice level preference?  I like it hot but my family are wimps so I usually go medium - hot so I'm not just making food for me lol . Though no ghost pepper type hot...I just don't care for them. 

Would anyone be interested in anything from Bucees?! It’s a magical giant beaver gas station/shop! It has spices, fudge,  Knick knacks, all things Texas, candy, beef jerky, roasted nuts, and of course beavers! Most things like the fudge and nuts are made in house. I have zero idea what this is but you had me at magical giant beaver gas station. If they have cool merch than a travel mug would be awesome. I also like beef jerky, fudge, nuts, and beavers





How do you guys store your decants so they are not a confused mess?  If you've got a system, please share it. Bullet storage cases are my fav. Need more though.




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? That would be lovely. No fringe, feel free to choose colors, no allergies, and no preference on thickness since I use both kinds. No scarfs please.



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? No preferance



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! I've been interested in oracle decks since I've never really used them. I'm also all for tarot decks of any sort 

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? My thoughts are Yes Pumpkin Everything!


Candy corn – love it or loathe it?  Or just don’t care much one way or another? Love it. Love it as a motif, a candy, and decoration. For eating though I really like the Fall Mix and the bag that has just the pumpkins that come in the fall mix. 





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? Caramels would be lovely




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 - this

Pflaumenmus (also Plum Butter)

Cardamom Plum Jam - this

Star Anise Plum Jam - this

Ginger Peach Butter 

Vanilla Peach Jam

Sweet Green Tomato Relish

Dill Green Tomato Relish

Huckleberry Jam - this

Apple Butter

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

Lavender Vanilla Bean liqueur

Rose Petal liqueur




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? I'll take all the protection I can get!


****END NEW Q/A FROM 10/5****
Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? 

No thank you


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

Shuttered Asylum Atmosphere Spray

Snow Angel Atmosphere Spray

Veronica Franco Imp Case


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

Most of mine involve naps and spending time in my yard/generally being outside as pandemic self-care. My normal self-care are just about all impossible right now due to pandemic and I'm in the process of figuring out what I need to get through the next six months and pandemic winter since my husband and I already deal with seasonal depression. The main things I've been working on is: 1.removing clutter (clutter is a huge depression/anxiety trigger for both of us)

2.finding healthy but easy fall/winter comfort foods because I'm still working on taking off the weight from the first six months of comfort eating. Basically focusing on soups, roasted veg, and things I can prep and freeze for days I just can't deal and would normally order pizza/eat junk

3. finding ways to add more movement/exercise to my life in general. I have health/mobility issues that are making that difficult and most of our parks (normally I like to walk) aren't open due to COVID. 

So things that would help those goals are:

1. storage containers for my imps. Especially the ones they make to store bullets. Those are great because the imps are easy to organize/find and stack neatly. 

2. Eco-friendly/reusable storage items like bees wrap or the silicon storage backs that are meant to replace sandwich bags. I'd really like some of those. I'm trying to create less waste but sandwich and snack sized plastic baggies are sooooo helpful. 

3. I'd love these headphones https://dormiphones.com/  they would be great for exercise, meditation, or when I listen to things to help fall asleep. 


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

No thank you


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

I love these! I'd love the plague seeker, stitches, cheshire smile, or blood thirst


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

Baba Yaga House or Shark Fin soap


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 will take all the pickles and jams. Also lavender & lemon are fav combos both for food and scents



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?? 

I'm really hoping for a crocheted goth unicorn from @twilighteyes warehouse :) I got one for my Witchee years ago and have wanted my own since. I was going to make one (I crochet too) but honestly I don't want to make it and Twilight Eyes and her Mom make perfect ones already ❤️ 


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

No thank you


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

No yarn please. I'm working on reducing the stash I have


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

Any of the gnome or Halloween pins by http://www.pinksamuri.com or stickers/stencils for my bullet journaling


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



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

Something I won't make for myself. I'm an interdisciplinary artist truth is I can make anything I want...doesn't mean I should though ;)


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

I love Penzeys! Their poultry seasoning I use a lot of already.  I've been wanting to try their: freeze dried shallots, Fox Point seasoning, Pico Fruta, and Penzeys Revolution


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

A patch or pin. No notions


Is there anything you'd like from the UK? 

Good clotted cream or lemon curd. 


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

Anything like that will be found in my wishlists. No Harry Potter though. I'm currently not so inclined to encourage lining JK's pockets right now.


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?  

I love tea but currently swimming in it. I do like mug rugs if you happen to make them. Halloween or Winter themed ones would be nice. 


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

I love them and will have my preferences in my wishlists


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

I do but they get spoiled enough already ;) 


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?

Elissa Marie Creative: I really like her witchy, small bee, or skull stickers. Particularly the human skulls.


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

No thank you


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! 

No thank you


One of the things I do is make nifty things from sweaters that I cut up & upcycle into things like super warm mittens, arm warmers, striped arm warmers, cowls, teapot cozies, & French press cozies.  I don't have a slipper I love yet, but I'm working on it.   So, which of these things might you like?  Give me some thoughts on colors you like & if for a teapot or press, I need to know a size.

I could use a french press cozy


I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in?

No thank you


Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist? 

My favorite artists are Edward Gorey,  Basil Gogos, and Graham "Ghastly" Ingels. I like old horror comics quite a bit.


Who is your fashion icon(s)? 

The witch in the woods/Mrs. Slocum from (Are You Being Served...mostly in hair)/ and these days Mrs. Roper.  I'm trying to decide my next fashion/personal style direction so no clothes please. 


What is your favorite mythological creature? 

Banshees and Mermaids

is there anything you want from Lush?

Keep Calm, Wash On hand care kit, Boo shower gel, Very, Very Frightening shower jelly


Do you need any astrological work done, since thats one of my professions? Any particular areas you could utilize a consultation?

How do you feel about the homemade fudge I sell in my etsy shop?  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollysRainbow -particular preferences, flavors (consider I take special flavor requests all the time!)?

No fudge please


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