BPAL

  • BPAL of the Day
    Snake Oil
  • Favorite Scents
    Notes I love: VANILLA, honey, beeswax, tonka, marshmallow, cream, benzoin, oudh, sweet patchouli, sandalwood, amber, frankincense, myrrh, copal, olibanum, daemonorops, opoponax, opium tar, incense in general, red musk, black musk, siberian musk, indian musk, blue musk, musk in general, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, carnation, rose, lavender, geranium, ylang ylang, black orchid, black lily, blackcurrant bud, leather, tobacco (but not tobacco flower), cigar smoke, mahogany, cedar, pine, sage, fir, teak, coconut, anise, sassafras, white tea, black tea, etc. I do like the lab's snow note.I like LUSH's Jasmine but not in BPAL or NAVA. Not usually all about the fruit but sometimes I need lemon, lime, strawberry, plum, peach, apple, fig, pumpkin, cheesecake, orange, cherry/almond, etc. Usually mixed with vanilla, musk, patchouli or something "darker".I do not like DIRT. Most things with "Blossom" in them do not work on me (plum blossom, cherry blossom, orange blossom, peach blossom, etc.) Vetiver and I don't get along if the vetiver is overpowering (which it usually is to me. I think Blood Kiss and Lunar Eclipse are some of the only vetiver scents I wear.) Gardenia does not usually work on me although I love the flowers in person. Same with violet - I like violet flavored things but the BPAL violet gives me a headache. I do not really like anything coffee scented (soap, candles, etc - or flavored for that matter, except coffee itself.) Not big on florals except what I've listed. I do like "floriental" type scents. Things with rum make me cry because usually all of the other notes rock but the rum kills it. Same with champagne. Not big into aquatics or air type scents either. Don't like cocoa or chocolate scents. Or caramel. At least not in candles, bath and body things, etc. I like the smell of those in actual food.Favorite scents are All Saints (rose heavy ones), Angeronalia, Antique Lace, Baku, Banshee Beat, The Beldam, Bitch, Black Lace, Black Opal, Brom Bones, The Cat (Coraline), Celeste, Clock Strikes Midnight, Coiled Serpent, Dark Delicacies, De Sade, Dead Dreams of Days Forsaken, Dead Man's Hand, Die Sundë, Dragon's Milk, Dysopes Tenuis, Ecclesiastical Excesses, Ecstasy of True Love, Eldritch Dark, Elephantine Colossus, Elizabeth of Bohemia, Fairy Market, Falling Leaf Moon, Feed Me & Fill Me with Pleasure, Glasya, Gluhwein, Go to Sleep Darlings, Green Tree Viper, Grr, Halloween: Las Vegas, Harp of Cnoc I'Chosgair, Haunted Palace, Hesiod's Phoenix, Humbug, In the Forest, Infernal Lover, Inganok Jewelers, Interfector, Joyful Moon, Katrina Van Tassel, Krampus, Krampus' Chains, Krampus' Shadow, La Lugubre Gondola, L'Autunno, Le Pere Fouettard, L'Estate, Lilith Victoria, Loli.Goth, Love, Loviator, Lughnasadh, Masque, Mead Moon, Midway, Mme.

    I used to foster rescue bully breeds but since moving I no longer have room for fosters. :( My baby, Jake Blues (AmStaff), passed away at 12.5 years on 5/31/14. Miss Lela (APBT) passed away in July 2015 at age 18. In June 2014 we adopted a (then 2 year old) blue Boxer/AmStaff mix - The Monkies. He has had a rough life and came with a ton of baggage but we're working through it. At the end of July 2015 we adopted what I thought was an AmStaff mix blue puppy. Her name is Azura Zelda Azul Lee Loo Dallas Multipaws (Zuul for short.) Yeah. Now I'm thinking she is a whippet/terrier mix (aka a Lurcher or Pippet.) I just started doing agility with her in October 2016.

    So... I am still in shock with disbelief and denial but I moved out of the place I have lived for the past 10+ years on 10/1/16 and am going through a divorce. His idea. I am currently living with family (and depression) in Eastern Washington. Zuul came with me, ex insisted on keeping The Monkies. *cry*

    I used to work in the IT Department of a very large Seattle based coffee and tea company but right now am not working. If you know anyone who needs a Unix SysAdmin, send 'em my way! ;) I've also done a lot of tech support over the years. Started building web pages in 1994 when there were only two books on the subject and I worked for an ISP at the time.

    I'm a knitter too. I'm on Ravelry, let me know if you'd like my user name.

    I love to play on-line games. I'm been playing Ultima Online since 1997. Love my Wii (Zelda!!) Also playing Skyrim and Diablo III. I need to play Before the Storm. Someday I'll get an updated console so I can play the new Zelda games. :)

    NYE Solstice Swap

    Would you like anything from Spireside candles? https://spireside.com/ I freaking LOVE candles but right now I'm having a hard time burning them and still being able to breathe (chronic respiratory issues) so those and incense are probably out for me. I just told my son that he can have/use my huge stash of partylite candles from when I was a seller. So I guess the answer is "no candles please" - if I burn them, I pay for it with coughing, wheezing, and much emergency inhaler use over the next couple of weeks. Are you interested in anything from Bird and Blend Tea Company? (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/) Bonfire Toffee Great British Cuppa Terry's Orange Chocolate Aniseed Balls Smoky Russian Vicky's Sponge Cake - small amounts (1 oz or less) would be great since I have a *lot* of tea and I hate my parent's kettle, so I rarely make tea. I need to get an electric kettle for my room or something.

    This has aged beautifully and really smells a LOT like heavy incense. I love it!!! Medium throw.

Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? 9/23/19 Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? Would you like anything from Lush? 9/26/19 So, there's a Euro coin of some denomination coming out with Asterix on it for the 60th anniversary and, while I'm not a coin collector, I've loved Asterix since before I could read and therefore really want one or two of the coin just to have.

(crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.) Any fiber issues? About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy? Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y? And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) 10/2/19 Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? Does anyone else do nail wraps? What about postcards? Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. 10/3/19 I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip. Are any of these relevant to you or your household? Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? Would you wear any of these? Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? 10/4/19 How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute? Elegantly modern? Totally Traditional? 10/6/19 So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes.

And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? 10/7/19 Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas? I make light-weight hairfalls, doll-style, using a variety of fun stuff, like ribbons, lace and soft batting. Would you be interested in receiving a set in the colors of your choosing? And a quick question here--I'm going to this amazing looking event on Saturday--does my witchee see anything they might be interested in? https://www.facebook.com/events/903999316607440/ (the Oddities Market) 10/8/19 How do you feel about enamel pins?

    Switch Witch 2019 - my answers

    9/18/19 Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things, I've probably already bought it! 🤣 ) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/ Ooh, I'm always envious when I see other people get these. Would love to try some! Assuming they are all paraben, SLS, phthalate free? Bubbling Bathing Grains Body Cream Shampoo Bar Sugar Scrub (any of the three types) Whipped Soap (anything really except bar soap, perfume, and conditioner.) *Ghost Smoke ** Lughnasadh * Opium Den ** The Gloaming Shadow Show Tombstone Witch Cake Bell Book & Candle *Dragon's Blood Cordwainer Festival Four & Twenty Blackbirds OM **Rook & Raven * Sylph ** White Witch Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of? No thank you, I don't have a dvd/blu-ray in my room and I rarely leave my room. I'm not super into horror any more (used to watch tons of horror and b-movies when I had a BF who was really into it.) Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)? I like crescent, sideways, and bias shawlettes or round/pi/half circle shawls. I do love me some fingerless mitts but the cast on and bind offs need to be done stretchy (cable cast on or JSSCO; JSSBO or lace/russian bind off.) Or you can look in my "Make for Me" bundle on Ravelry. Or the Vampire Swap bundle. Patterns I want (not knitted for me, I want to knit them) are in my Wishlist. Please don't knit things for me that are in my queue, I want to knit those! Do any of these knitted items appeal to you? - Either no, I already have them made, or I already have the pattern and have them in my queue to make. How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)? I love thrifting! Totally fine with me. 9/20/19 I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? Sure! I actually have products from them on my wishlist (in signature.) Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? Sure! Assuming they are all paraben, SLS, phthalate free. Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? I super want the "Leg Avenue Black Bat Cozy Dress Halloween Costume" and the Microfiber Tighter (black, size 1/2, 30% off.) I'm also interested in everything NMBC, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, etc. What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?) · animal rescue · pie · dogs · inappropriate candies (either in shape or in contents—ex., boozy candies, creatively shaped peanut brittle…) All of the above! I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations? YES ALL THE THINGS. Um, I live close to Seattle so I'm good there. London and Paris? Surprise me? I love really good tea (I order from Mariage Freres in Paris but I have lots of their tea on my Amazon edibles wishlist), I love local small batch chocolates (no coffee please. no white chocolate.) Starbucks city mugs? Cool spices? Whatever you'd think I'll like, I'm pretty open. Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. ALL THE FLAVORED KIT KATS!!! I love those! I get a lot of things locally at little asian stores but they don't always get the kit kats and when they do, they charge like $8/9 a bag for them. 9/22/19 Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? I'm good on lip balm right now. I love to try new things and I'd love to have some the Vanilla scented items that used to be sold at my local co-ops but I can't ever find anymore by Ecco Bella. I have them on my Amazon bath and beauty wish list. Also interested in skin care, I have super oily skin and need a good moisturizer. Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? All of them? I love RX Bars but I buy those at costco now (the dark chocolate sea salt and the peanut butter are my favorites.) I've tried the RX Butter and it's good but too runny for me and I hate stirring in the oil over and over when it separates. I love Dave's Killer Bread and the everything Bagels. Licorice Mint tea! Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? I have stuff on my Amazon kitchen and house & home wish lists for inspiration. 9/23/19 Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? Yes, they are already in my wishlist (in signature.) Would you like anything from Lush? Yes yes yes I love bath bombs. And there are some other items on my amazon wish list under bath and body; angels on bare skin, greased lightning, some moisturizer, etc. No soap though please, and I don't use the bubble bars very often. Bombs and melts are awesome. I *LOVE* the sleepy hand cream and go through it really fast. The soap paper things are kind of cool. Would love some of the lust perfume. I loved Flying Fox and .. I forget the name, Puffy White Clouds? The patchouli one. I think their shower gels have SLS in them though, sigh. 9/26/19 Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees? Ummm yeah, actually, a lot of things. Like I'll buy stamps from the UK with cool artwork on them even if I'll never be able to use them. Also US Stamps. Also coins. Also just about anything that I love because I'm a weirdo. also I ADORE Krampus stuff -- I have a couple of Krampus books somewhere in storage (The Devil in Design and I can't remember the other) and would gleefully accept all things Krampus, especially cute Krampus. Stickers, rubber stamps, wrapping paper, pins, post cards, etc. Kickstarter (and similar): Any thoughts, witches? I have been lucky and have gotten everything I've ever backed but there is nothing currently out that I'm needing to have that I'm aware of. I just finally got my Last Unicorn tarot deck and my Wise Dog tarot should be on the way. 9/28/19 Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? Yes, in my signature - in the wishlist / sw help portion, scroll down. And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? My wrist is about 8" and I think I put this info in the original SW questionnaire? Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? Bonfire Toffee Great British Cuppa Terry's Orange Chocolate Aniseed Balls Smoky Russian Vicky's Sponge Cake Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any? What colors?? Nah, I'm good. is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? Always! I love World Market. I tend to get chocolate, snacks, sticky toffee pudding (holidays), and whatever else looks fun. This year it seemed like the collection at my store was pretty small and mostly addams family stuff. While that's cute and I adore it, I don't really have room for most of it. (I totally wanted one of the skull head punch/water dispensers from last year though, lol. But ... I have no place to put and nothing to put in it.) 9/29/19 There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) I don't really know what is on the special sale but I have a bunch of items in my wishlist. Anything that you think I would like! How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks? Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)? New or used? I would like some rune sets but I'm good on tarot decks right now. Charging slabs or something like that would be welcome! (The exception would be the Phantomwise Tarot deck, I love the artwork in that one so much!) Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? I have a ton of samples I've never opened but if there are some you think I'd like, sure. I like smoky eye type things and sparkle. greys, blues, purples, blacks, maroons, dark greens? glimmer! sparkle! I want to look like a fricking unicorn! (ok, I actually don't wear make up that often. Pigs and goats aren't impressed, nor are the sheep or my dog.) 9/30/19 do you have a favourite saying or quote? There are so many, how do I choose a favorite? I mean, I have favorite quotes from particular books, tv shows, movies, cartoons, poetry, ... Inconceivable! As you Wish. Always. (short ones) Many longer and more serious ones from Gaiman, Pratchett, Tolkien, etc. etc. etc. How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit? Probably Cayenne and down if we're talking about eating. (cream cheese & jalapeno is YUM. We make candied jalapenos too.) For for not eating, we add the hottest peppers we can get to our "thunder butter" muscle rub. How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? Nope, I do not color. 10/1/19 A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable? (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.) I do not like crocheted garments unless maybe they are tunisian crochet. I'll take all of the crocheted blankets and amigurumi though! Any fiber issues? For wearing, I don't like acrylic, llama, alpaca, mohair, bfl... cashmere pills too much for me. I mostly prefer merino or merino/silk. Or merino/silk/cashmere with a low cashmere content. Acrylic and inexpensive wool or whatever is fine for amigurumi. About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! I have zero monies to spend on myself, so I won't be purchasing anything. At first perusal, these look interesting but honestly, I'd rather have NAVA. Devil's of the Pit hair gloss 1 oz decant Pumpkin Spice Silkybat Hair Gloss 1 oz decant Flesh of my Flesh perfume oil Kisses for us All perfume oil Voluptuous Wantonness Perfume Oil Lollipop Snake Oil Perfume Oil Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy? Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y? And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) Yes, I love booze! I love unusual stuff! I have a list of things I want or want to try, which includes any fruity liqueurs from Yewberry!! We make rose liqueur and lavender vanilla bean (with our own roses and lavender.) I *love* traditional sweet meads. Love fruit wine! I get spiced blackberry and raspberry from RockRidge Orchards in Enumclaw, WA when I can afford it. Also love sweet ciders! I like hard alcohol of all types although I'm not big on tequila, it makes my throat sore. I'm highly interested in samples (or bottles, haha) of: Aperol St. Germain Chartreuse Chambord Pastis a decent absinthe Creme Yvette Drambuie Parfait d'Amour Crème de cassis Advocaat Averna Barenjaeger Benedictine Damiana Galliano Licor 43 Strega 10/2/19 Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? Do I want some? I love sparklies but I rarely use them, so I don't *need* any. I have a huge wishlist for ILNP although don't go overboard because I mostly just wear it on my toes and I don't switch out quickly, so a little lasts me a long time. Vanity from the fall collection (on sale!!) is really calling my name though, along with Isabella (also on sale!) I *have* On Repeat, MEGA (L), Birefringence (H), Raven, and Night Drive. I'd kind of like a red one that doesn't have a copper or orange leaning to it, Black Orchid was the best I could find on the site so it's on my wish list. (shrug) What about postcards? I love beautiful or spooky postcards! I actually save all of my cards and postcards and letters and stuff FOREVER (what, I'm not a hoarder! Pinky swear!) and usually put up the postcards all over my desk hutch. I had to remove them when I moved three years ago and haven't gotten any since then I don't think. How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. I have a bunch of flavored salts and I love them! Problem is that I run out of grinders and have to keep getting more. I have alder smoked, garlic something, pink himalayan, sea salt, kosher salt (I keep a huge box of this), epsom salt for baths. I'd LOVE some coarse Dead Sea Salt to make my own bath salts with (I'll mix with the Pink and the Epsom.) 10/3/19 I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip. Are any of these relevant to you or your household? I love poundcake and caramels and shortbreads and .... would especially love lavender or rose flavored. And vanilla all the things! We grow our own catnip so I'm good there. Plus I have a dog, not a cat. haha. Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? I do like to cook but I'm currently living with family and someone is ALWAYS in the kitchen, so I stay out of it. I have kind of an obsession with Penzey's but since I never cook, I have WAY too many spices. Would you wear any of these? Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? Sorry, I am not a fan of crocheted garments. Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? Plenty of ideas on my various amazon and etsy wishlists. They are pretty extensive... but I can't think of anything utilitarian that I absolutely need. What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? I'm not vegan so I'm ok with whatever snacks, but I do avoid corn syrup, dyes, msg, artificial sweeteners, etc. when I can. (So most potato chips and stuff are out, because the majority contain MSG, which gives me a headache.) How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute? Elegantly modern? Totally Traditional? Whimsical/Cute/Gothy/Nerdy-Geeky - but not country cute. But I'm sure a lot of the knitting patterns I do are just .. whatever is hot right now in the knitting world. So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes. Is this relevant to any witchees? I don't like sweet relish or sweet pickles. I *love* dill pickles (and dill pickled anything... green beans, asparagus, carrots, whatev.) Maybe not beets though. (I only like beets in borscht.) How do you celebrate Halloween/Samhain? Do you dress up? Would you like something for your costume? And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? These days it's pretty much like every other day. (Halloween is every day, after all!) No, I don't dress up special although the dogs might be tormented... I don't even dress up for renn faires anymore, or cons for that matter. Nothing for my non existent costume. I do not often wear socks unless it is raining or snowing and I must wear actual shoes instead of sandals... Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas? I have never tried Art of Tea, but I tend to buy things like flavored black teas in cinnamon, rose, chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate orange, vanilla chai, chai with a strong anise flavor, etc. or just really nice strong black tea. I also love licorice mint basil tea (think Aveda's tea blend) or just licorice mint. And I can't live without Traditional Medicinals Breathe Easy and Throat Coat since I have huge respiratory issues. I make light-weight hairfalls, doll-style, using a variety of fun stuff, like ribbons, lace and soft batting. Would you be interested in receiving a set in the colors of your choosing? Maybe? I live out in the country and never go anywhere so I'm afraid they wouldn't get good use. And a quick question here--I'm going to this amazing looking event on Saturday--does my witchee see anything they might be interested in? (the Oddities Market) I didn't see anything on the photos listed and I'm hurt too much (shoulders/neck) to stay by the computer very long today, sorry. But I love sugar skulls, bats, ravens, pibbles, friesians, hippocampus.. I don't really need any jewelry per se, but I took a beading class so I could use interesting and weird beads and findings? I have a collection of gargoyles and grotesques, nice roses made from different mediums (leather, silk, metal - not cheap ones from michaels or halloween stuff.) Oh, and of course Krampus and Cthulhu!! How do you feel about enamel pins? Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent? So they're one of those things I'm weird about. I have a ton of enamel pins but I've literally never taken any out of their packages because I don't wear them or use them. But people have gotten me some from Disneyland (Malificent and Jack Skellington), I backed some in a kickstarter because so cute (cute egyptian gods), I have some alchemical symbol ones from Stryx Publishing (Seattle) - Leviation Cross and Monas Hieroglyphica, etc. But yeah, they all live in a cookie jar. Oh, and I got the full set with my Last Unicorn tarot kickstarter package but I'll probably trade, gift, or sell those because there isn't even a unicorn one! So, to make a long story short (too late), I'm slightly interested if it is relevant to my interests and tastes, otherwise do not want. I should really start putting them all on a cloth and then inside a frame or something so I can look at them. what is your T-shirt/shirt of choice Size? I wear a women's 2X from TeeTurtle (the only place I have purchased t-shirts lately.) men's t-shirts just don't fit properly. OCTOBER LUNACY! I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye? Not this lunacy, but they're still up - I want the vanilla/carnation duet because I've heard good things. And the patchouli/tobacco (dang, oos.) and the red rose/tobacco. And the amber/oud. Man, I guess I haven't been paying attention because I don't have any monies to spend, haha. I have a bunch of red rose/tobacco scents, so the amber/oud and the vanilla/carnation would be priorities. So Blood Moon Botanica is having an update soon. It's a surprise what will be listed (besides the Moon Dew serum), but you can take a look at past items on her web page: https://archaichoney.com/bloodmoonbotanica (Britton used to run Haus of Gloi.) Witchee, are you interested in anything from the Blood Moon Botanica update? I would love more Moon Dew serum and I'm a fan of her tea and other things. The calming elixir and linden flower elixir both look good, as does the turkey tail. If I was to donate to an animal rescue on your behalf as the "lucyboo" component of this swap, is there one in particular that you would choose? I love bats in particular but there was a local pet place here that spayed/neutered all of the feral cats on our place at no cost to us (one cat moved in... pregnant... had kittens... those kittens had kittens.. we trapped them all, kittens got rehomed, adult ferals got to live here after getting fixed/shots. We only see them on the security cameras but we feed them.) So long story short (too late), maybe Pet Savers in Spokane? https://www.petsaversspokane.org/ What is your very favorite Halloween candy? If you don't have one/don't do candy, what's a seasonal treat you love? I've been totally eyeing the halloween mice, bats, and stuff at Burdick chocolate (https://www.burdickchocolate.com/halloween.aspx) - some of those truffles sound delicious! But they're expensive so, yeah. We make the smitten kitchen pumpkin bread every year (since 2016, so... three years. Made some already this year as soon as it was fall.) I like caramel apples. Fisher fair scones remind me of fall because it's a weird Washington thing I guess. (I don't know if I've seen the mix for sale in Spokane, it's all over in Seattle.) Kettle corn, fresh from an actual kettle (used to get it at the corn mazes/pumpkin patches every year in the Seattle area.) Pumpkin hard cider! I am not a fan of "pumpkin spice" though. Salted caramel mocha at sbux (with hardly any mocha, although honestly it's pretty much the same thing I usually have there - toffee nut latte, but add some salt, caramel on top, and mocha. The gingerbread is my favorite though it doesn't usually come out until after Halloween, if it comes at all. and I usually do flavored stevia in my coffee so having sbux is a huge sugar jolt that I don't indulge in often.) Whatever seasonal selections are available from localish chocolate places like Frans, Moonstruck, Boehms, Theo, Seattle Chocolates/JCOCO, etc. Trader Joes seasonal stuff. World Market seasonal stuff. I just got an email from Lush that their Christmas stuff is now up online! anything you might like? OMG, ALL THE THINGS. I got that email too and went and looked... now I have tons more stuff on my Amazon bath & body wishlist. I'm most excited about: Snowflake body lotion Sleepy Dust Snow Fairy Amazeball Boo Shower Slime Bath bombs If you were my witchee, would you enjoy home made (canned) preserves? I'm going home to Can All The Things & I'm thinking some bananas foster butter/sauce might be a nifty thing for you. I've never had such a thing as bananas foster. But yes, all the home made preserves and stuffs!! I am in Las Vegas is there anything you would want from here? A Las Vegas starbucks gift card (can be empty, I just want the card. I have New York, Miami, and Seattle... not a very big collection. They usually make you load at least $5 though.) If you make it to the Vosges store and they have chocolate skulls, one of those would be cool. My favorite flavor is the Naga (coconut curry milk chocolate.)

    Switch Witch 2018 Answers

    Speaking of OOS/Discontinued - Are there any old favorites from no longer operating companies that you would like if either anyone had a stash OR could find a reasonable dupe? The original Vanilla single note from The Body Shop (circa 1990.) Booze, yea or nay? Favorite kinds? yea! I love sweet meads, wines (especially ice wine and tawny port), ciders, liqueurs, hard alcohol (baileys, flavored vodkas, schnapps)... do not like dry meads, ciders, or wines. I like SOME beer, mostly stout. Knitted stuff? Need/want anything specific? Colors? I like knitted stuff but as I'm a knitter I am usually overflowing in knitted things and end up giving most away or selling them. If you really need to knit something for me I have a bundle on Ravelry called "Make for Me" (also Halloween / Vamp Swap) and I like dark colors like black, dark grey, dark wine/burgundy/black over red, dark purple. I do not like navy blue, white, beige, tan, yellow, orange, or usually pink.) Feelings re: Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland? Love it, hate it, meh it? I love Alice in Wonderland! I really like the original artwork (especially white rabbit wearing his heart tunic and Alice playing croquet with the flamingo and hedgehog.) I have fabric from Spoonflower with the artwork for making project bags. Would you like a postcard from the fancy schmantsy St Pancras Renaissance hotel that I'm about to stay in several times over the next month? Sure, I love receiving mail. Does anything catch your eye from Future Primitive, including oos things? Scents that sound lovely: Opium Den, Rook & Raven, Sylph, White Witch, Potages Cauldrons, The Gloaming, OM, Cordwainer. Whipped soap, scrubs, bathing grains, body cream all sound good. Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Any merch or pre-Nano supplies you might want? No, I do not enjoy writing in the slightest. I just recently discovered MoonMagic -jewelry with a focus on moonstones but also opals and labradorite. They currently have a sale. Anything that stands out to you? (moonmagic.com) Crescent Moon (moonstone) especially, but also Ellipse, Dropping wisdom (both in moonstone), and Orbit Teardrop (labradorite) -- oh, but none of those are on sale. Let's see, sales items. Size 7 rings: Cosmic Daze, Moon Trance, Seahorses, White Virgin, Waves, Sky Energy, Size 11 rings: Luminance Moonstone Teardrop (loose) Do you like quirky socks? Any preferred styles (ankle, thigh-high..)? No, I rarely wear socks. Not at all from April - October and grudgingly during the winter under boots. I mostly only wear black socks unless I'm wearing converse in which I wear white or grey. Are you interested in anything from Nerdlacquer? Not as much as I'm interested in ILNP. There is a list of ILNP I'd love to try under SW Help link in my signature. Let's get specific about this knitting thing! Do any of these items/styles appeal? I've numbered these so you can just reference numbers if you like! 1, 2, 4, 10, 11 -- if I happen to have a knitter as a witch, I actually have somebundles on Ravelry - "Make for me" or "Halloween or Vamp Swap" with items I'd be interested in having someone make for me. Please don't make me things off of my wish list or out of my queue, those are things that I want to make. If your witch was able to obtain digital media that you could not access (TV, movies, books, etc.), is there anything you have been in search of for quite a while? If yes, what devices do you use to play such (i.e. Windows, Mac, etc.)? I'd love the Robert Anton Wilson Illuminatus Trilogy, Shroedinger's Cat, and The Historical Chronicles of the Illuminati (three books starting with The Earth Will Shake) on mobi or epub. I actually have a huge list of books that I'd like on audio or mobi Is there anything you want from Japan? Some kind of food, cute stationary, fandom merch, maybe you collect lucky cats, anything! yummy kit kats! Also Nightmare Before Christmas stuff! Are you witchy or like witchy things like incense, sage, palo santo, crystals, tarot, altar supplies, candles, etc.? Whatcha like/need? Low smoke incense, palo santo, crystals, altar supplies, ritual / chime candles, yes. I have some altar supplies on my amazon wishlist (I think under house/home) -- altar bell, altar chalice, some altar cloths in different colors (need red), can always use chime candles, TALs, etc. I'm waiting on my Last Unicorn tarot deck (kickstarter) as well as The Wise Dog tarot (I can wait to see which card my dog gets - I paid for one of my dogs to be in the deck) and I just received a Game of Thrones tarot deck for my birthday, so I think I'm set there. I put what kind of crystals/gemstones I like in my SW questionnaire. Do you need decanting supplies? Sample vials? Pipettes? Standard labels? I could use vials but I'm good on pipettes and labels. Can you link to your non forum wishlists/goodreads if you haven't already done so? Mine should all be linked on the spreadsheet and in my signature. Some of them are linked from SW Help (in my signature.) If you're a yarn user, what kinds of yarn do you like best? I have a yarn wishlist on The Loopy Ewe and Knit Picks (both linked in SW Help) as well as some yarn on my Amazon list (under Fiber Arts) and on Etsy. I love plain merino as well as merino/silk/cashmere. Gradient yarns are my favorite but I love semi solid colors too. I don't like variegated yarn. I do love me some self striping but I think I have more than I can ever knit at this point unless you find some in worsted or DK. (no fingering) For shawls I like fingering yarn but everything else I'd prefer DK or Worsted. Twisted Fiber Arts is one of my favorite yarn dyers but they are super expensive. Spooky stuff! D'ya like... ghosts? Skeletons? Aliens? Bigfoot? Unsolved mysteries? I like skeletons, gargoyles, and bats. No ghosts, witches, aliens, zombies, werewolves, etc. I live in the Pac NW so of course we have bigfoot everything but I'm not especially a fan. Is there anything from the Lush christmas line that was just released that you're interested in? I think I already added those to my SW Help, ahaha. I'd love some more Sleepy lotion (I guess not the Christmas line, it's around on year, but I went through 6oz of it this spring and could use some more.) Interested in the Snow Fairy body spray and the Snow Fairy body conditioner as well as the Sleepy shower gel. I love Butterbear (one of my favorite Lush scents) and wouldn't mind trying the Puddy Holly. Is there any scents from the more current releases you have been wanting to try (Weenies, Motherhood/Fatherhood)? I haven't been able to get anything from most of the releases in the past couple of years. I'd REALLY like No DNA Test Required. I think I've added things to my wishlist and ISO though, and I'll keep those updated. How do you feel about buttons, pins, and badges? I never really used to be a fan but lately I've been getting pins .. I don't really have any place to PUT them though (I don't carry a bag with me anywhere, ever, unless it's a project bag and I'm going to be knitting. I don't wear a jacket because I'm always too hot.) So they're all stuffed in a canister. Practical Magic or Hocus Pocus? I've never seen Hocus Pocus but I do love me some Practical Magic. Does anything from either of these shops interest you? The Stitchety Witch cross stitch creations and patterns No thank you! Black Abbey Studios (http://www.blackabbeystudios.com/store) art w/ a gothic tendency -- ooh, I love Midnight in the Garden. Also Faithful Friend, King Puck, and Triggers. Is there something (either a specific item, or type of item, like bath/body, perfume, candy etc) you're really looking forward to or hoping to get? Whatever my Witch wants to send! I would love to get some of the Liliths (BPAL/BPTP) or some of the Shihaya scents in Sorbetto (especially Ember & Mallow or Sisterhood of the Moon) - I wanted to buy some but I'm saving my monies for swaps and dog food. There is a bunch of LE Nocturne Alchemy that I'm interested in as well. But I'm not expecting to get anything in particular, I'm always surprised! What's something you want or look at, but always talk yourself out of buying (or for whatever reason never purchase)? Everything, haha! The Sihaya / Paintbox Soapworks stuff I mentioned above, Blackthorn Hoodoo Blends tea, ILNP (nail polish - the mega hologram), rituel de fille samplers... I'm sure I could think of more. I usually just add them to my cart, laugh at the price and add to my wishlists instead, and then try not to obsess about them. Are there any subscription/subscription style boxes you have an interest in?(This could be a very specific sub like sihaya or lootcrate or an idea/concept you're interested in without a specific company in mind, like "book related candles"). I love the Forest Nui Cobalt boxes and have seriously considered the Sihaya until I read the scent notes of what is included and then meh out. (I did win a contest from her instagram where I received some leftovers of various boxes and those were lovely. I do love Sihaya candles so much! I can only burn them very very occasionally and have to wear a respirator but I can still smell them through it. Usually it's too much of a hassle to wear the disposable respirators so I don't do it very often. (sorry - tangent - I would love some non-disposable respirators in gothy fabric or black and some replacement filters.) Things like witchy / crystal / tea / pig / dog boxes are all cool. I unsubscribed from bark box because I couldn't afford it anymore but Zuul loves getting it. Coffee or Tea? I love both but right now I'm only doing k-cups for coffee (I also do some k-cup tea) and I have SO MUCH loose lea tea. I just found a 32oz ingenuitea at a local store for $20, so I'm going to go buy that. I do have two teapots without filters so I could use a gold filter or something to set down in those while I'm brewing. I can always use more egyptian licorice mint tea and the traditional medicinals "breathe easy." My favorite coffee k-cups are the Death Wish (regular death cups and odin.) My favorite tea capsules are Harney & Son (Paris, Hot Cinnamon Spice, and Peppermint - that's all they had in stock and I have tons) but other flavors might be fun. I have some tazo chai and english breakfast too. Anything from David's Tea(esp the new Halloween) that catches your eye? Their spooky tin is super cute! The organic stormy night!! The peanut butter cup sounds intriguing. Also the color changing mug is so cute! But I really don't need more mugs (she says, eyeing the BPTP/BPAL mug, haha.) Oh, and the maple matcha sounds lovely. (My favorite teas are black, matcha, and sometimes green or white but I don't especially love other kinds.) What are your DISO BPAL dreams? No DNA test required for sure. The Liliths on my wish list. For those of us Switch Witches who ARE witches....if you have a Book of Spells would you like a page for it from your witch? That would be awesome, I love the big scrapbook spellbook from Practical Magic. I have horrible writing and am not talented in the way of putting together something like that. What house were you sorted into? Pottermore sorted me into Hufflepuff which I disagree with because I think I'm more of a Ravenclaw/Gryffindor. But the Honey Badger is my spirit animal, so there's that. There are some really awesome spice shops in NYC. Would you like/need any herbs or spices? I really don't have a NEED for more herbs/spices since I've been taking advantage of all of the Penzey specials and I've also stocked up on medieval spices. Anything from this curiosity shop the type of thing that interests you? Dreadful Curiosities: https://www.facebook.com/pg/dreadfulcuriosities/photos/ Nothing with fur (or scary clowns) but any of the skulls would be cool. I have two ravens and a coyote as well as sheep. Are you a board game nerd like me? Is there a game you want right now? I haven't really played a lot of board games lately and I don't really have anyone to play with right now since I'm isolated out in the middle of nowhere and all of my friends are on the other side of the state in Seattle (or scattered across the world!) That being said, I would love to play Cards against Humanity and I backed Unstable Unicorns Control & Chaos (but I don't have the regular deck.) I have the NSFW version of Exploding Kittens but expansion packs are cool. I have a new question! I'll be headed to the PA RenFaire the end of this month. Is there anything you'd be interested in? http://www.parenfaire.com/faire.html (if you scroll down a bunch there's a list of merchants) Wow, it looks like a huge faire! I am jealous, I love going. I usually get things like birch beer, mead, torques, pirate coats, silver toned buttons with celtic knots (especially dogs/ravens/horses/hippocampus), any kind of roses (metal/feather/leather/whatever), pottery, etc. I have a nice belt, dagger, wooden tankards, table knife (maybe a fork/spoon?), shoes, garb, pouches, drinking horns, etc. I love the huge lightweight blankets or tapestries that you find at renn faires, would love one with a horse knot in blue/purple/black. Dragons are good too or witchy things, celtic knots in general, whatever. There are so many cool things at faires that I wouldn't even know where to start for wishes without seeing things. would you like a crocheted doll related to one of your interests? I already have a super cute pit bull one from dixiehellcat! (But it's packed up somewhere with most of my belongings. I feel like this is my life, living with most of my things packed up for years and years. I adore amigurumi but I really don't have any place to put such things right now. Would you want me to put a collection of rocks/gems together for you? And if so, is there anything you'd want me to focus on? (health, peace, protection, creativity, love, etc...) I have quite a few but can always use more! I need health, luck, wealth, peace/peaceful home, protection, love, .... doesn't everyone? Also luck with my legal matters (divorce hearing) coming up in December. Are you interested in anything from this store? https://www.tafilu.com/stores/witches Any of the hoodies in black (or charcoal grey) would be fun, especially the hollow eve riding group, heart with skeleton hands, paw readings, resting witch face with the bat, or the skeleton horse!! I like oversized things so a 2 XL would probably be good. The long sleeved tee's in a 3x would probably work too, again black or charcoal grey. Is anyone interested in the New update? I am so lusting after Snake Oil Cream Soda and the Samhain prototype. I added all of the new things I'm interested in to my Wish list and ISO.

    Winter Solstice Swap 2017

    Are there decants that you wished you ordered but didn't? Things you wish you had ordered more of? I haven't been able to afford Liliths yet, let alone Weenies or Yules... But I'm going to try to get Liliths before they go down. My wishlist is up to date with Weenies and Yules. Are your Amazon, Etsy etc wishlists up to date? They should be. Amazon has priority settings so please sort high to low; I wish we could do that with Etsy. how do you feel about animated films? I used to be way more into anime but I'm not really anymore. My son has stolen all of my Ranma 1/2 dvds. I still watch some disney and pixar movies occasionally. NMBC is love! I watch Coraline once a year or so. My current fave animated movies besides NMBC are Brave and How to Train Your Dragon. Is there a book you've always meant to read, but never got round to it? Sure, but I have them already. My amazon book wishlist is very up to date; the books I really want are marked as very high or high priority. I put lots of inexpensive kindle books on there too. If you've expressed an interest in candles, do you prefer unscented or scented and if the latter, what scents? Sorry, I've answered so many similar swap questions that I can't keep track of which is which anymore! I love beeswax pillars like the ones from Big Dipper Waxworks (not rolled beeswax, I prefer poured.) Candles with intent would be fine! I do prefer pillars over jars because wick placement is usually better in pillars. Scent wise I like things like Vanillas, spices (clove, cardamom, cinnamon in small amounts), woodsy, bayberry, smoky, incense, marshmallow, patchouli, resins, tobacco, lavender, geranium, sandalwood, rose, etc. and lean towards essential oil types of the scent. For example, I think the yankee candle lavender smells nothing like actual lavender. There are some candles on my etsy and amazon wish lists - there are some Witch City Wicks, Dark Candles, etc. that I have been lusting over but I can't justify spending monies on them. Do you like windchimes or other similar tinkley noisemakers? I would love some gargoyle windchimes. (I have some unicorn ones and some that I inherited from my grandmother. Most of the ones that I long after are probably too expensive.) I still kind of lust over a small gargoyle guardian bell (I think there is one on my amazon wishlist, they're meant to put on motorcycles.) If you were to find something cool like that, it would be great. I wouldn't say no to a tibetan singing bowl for my altar. Do you/would you like Christmas/holiday music? If so, any particular genres or styles? I already have a lot of Christmas holiday music from my favorite bands so no thank you. Do you have a Goodreads? Is it useful for my stalking purposes? I do have a goodreads but I don't think it would be useful for stalking purposes. My amazon would be more useful. (I like librarything better than goodreads but it still isn't completely updated because most of my books have been packed up for 15-20 years. Link is in my SW help.) Are there any holiday movies or shows you would particularly love to get your hands on? Maybe some of the nostalgic rudolph christmas animated movies? (Year without a Santa Claus) Would you prefer your nourishment to be literal (i.e., actual food) or representative? Totally up to you. Bath/body, food, whatever. In terms of actual food, are you comfortable with homebaked goodies so long as potential allergens are not involved? yes! Do you have favorite holiday foodstuffs? Last year I received a homemade christmas pudding and it was SO GOOD. I need the recipe! And then I bought some sticky toffee pudding from World Market and that was delicious too. Are you adverse to burning things as part of your sacrifice? Would rather not unless it's meant to be burnt (incense, candles, paper.) So how do you feel about teas? Would you be interested in getting some for your "nourishment" part of your gift? If so, are there particular companies you love or have always wanted to try? Special varieties you like- holiday blends, or decaf or solid standards like Earl Grey or Sencha? I have so much tea it isn't funny. I wouldn't ever say no to Mariage Freres though. And what about tea accoutrements, like rock sugar, nice honey (I have a fabulous apiary that is literally 6 blocks from my house!), a special spoon? I always love locally sourced honey. I could use a really large (32oz) teavana perfectea maker. Or maybe coffee is more your thing? And would you want your beans whole or ground (if ground, what grind do you like?) I'm good on coffee I think, unless you have a super special blend you want to share with me. I usually prefer whole bean but I am not sure I'll be able to find my grinder or my french press. The only coffee maker in the house right now is my dad's keurig. Scented candle lovers: do you have a favorite store/brand? Indie companies are love. I'd love to try Witch City Wicks or Dark Candles (there are some on my bath / beauty / fragrance amazon wishlist for a hint of what kind of fragrances I like.) I just ordered a bunch of candles from Sihaya and Co. because she was having a secret menu sale so I finally get to try those. I was hoping to get some for swapping but they aren't guaranteed to be mailed until the middle of december. Oops. Favorite/Least favorite bath products (e.g. do you like scrubs, bar soap, gel)? Favorites: shower gel, salt/oil scrubs Least favorite: bar soap (because I make it and I have about 500 bars.) No SLS or parabens, trying to avoid phthalates. My skin is uber dry from thyroid issues and also breaks out really easily. What sounds are comforting for you? Any that bring up good memories? Hoofbeats, saddle leather creaking, horse tails swishing, neighing. (Yes, I miss my horses.) I have lots of white noise generators on my phone and I use those to sleep when I'm away from home. At home I have a noisy air cleaner to provide white noise. Do you like and use christmas/other celebration decorations, baubles and the like? I used to buy a purple, iridescent, sparkly, or some kind of mystical creature (dragon, unicorn, grotesque) every year for my tree but haven't done that lately. My ex didn't really like having a real tree. I doubt we'll have a real tree this year either because I'm staying with my 70-something parents and they have a little fake tree that they like to put up. My mom already has all of the decorations she needs (and more.) I'm always sad that they don't have a fireplace - so no good place to hang stockings. (Yes, I still do a stocking for my kid who is almost 30 and for my parents, and they do one for me.) I have one of those aluminum trees with a disco light in storage somewhere with all of my Christmas decorations. Would YOU like to receive a singing bowl? Yes! Would you mind receiving a pre-loved book (one in good condition)? I have a really hard time reading physical books because of my eyes. My contact prescription is too strong to read things. I do all of my reading on my ipad these days with either ibooks or the kindle app. How do you feel about fruitcake, assuming that I can make it without any stated allergens? We just made cherry almond fruitcake today! That's the only fruitcake I've ever had that I liked. How about rum/whiskey/bourbon balls (these are no-cook, so the alcohol is still pretty potent)? Heck yeah!! But I don't like walnuts. What is your favorite store-bought holiday treat? such a hard question. maybe the chocolate covered peppermint joe-joes from trader joes? I already bought a couple of boxes though and I had two boxes leftover from last year since R wasn't around to eat them all. (Amazing how much longer my treats last without someone else to eat them all.) I'm having a hard time thinking of winter holiday treats... I can think of valentine day treats (cupcake royale's "Death Cake") but the brain fog is blocking my thoughts right now. oh! I was going to buy some Sticky Toffee Pudding from World Market but they didn't have any so we might attempt to make our own this year. Most of the "store bought" stuff I used to get was from local bakeries/stores/grocery stores, I miss all of my Seattle stores.

    12 Days of Christmas 2017

    12 Days of Christmas 2017 -- you can also read my answers from Switch Witch and 13 Days of Halloween 2017 in my blog if you want. Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi? I'm super sad that my Rose City pumpkin butter is almost gone (and I don't see it on the site anymore - it was rose and patchouli.) * Snow Wolf, Turkish Delight, would love of a sample of Haus Amber and Nefarious Gingerbread Man. (Pumpkin Butter and any of the scrubs.) * Pomander, Fir Boughs and Incense, Serenity (butter bombs) * Candy Cane, Butterscotch (lip balm) * For perfume only, the birthday ambers are on sale and I was wanting to try Amber & Rose, Amber & Incense, or Amber Noir. The Fall Black Musks are killing me, I love black musk. I'm most interested in Black Musk & Nag Champa, Black Musk, Leather & Rose, Black Musk, Anise & Vanilla. I've never smelled their black musk though, so I hope it's good! Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened? Sorbetto or bath streusel only: Winter Stories or Figs in Honey. (no lotions or soap please.) I do love her goat milk body cream and wish she would make the lavender honey scented again. There are plenty other of scents on there I'd love too. Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink? - Scent wise: Black, Black Marshmallow, Black Vanilla, Black Velvet, Black Widow, Broomstick, Come-hither, Cozy Blanket, Fear of Ghosts, Genevieve, Lipstick Stains, Marshmallow, Monster in the Walls, Naughty, Sensory Deprivation Tank, Stanley Hotel, The Upside-Down, Vanilla on the Rocks, Vanilla Rose, - Product wise: ShampPink shampoo, dermabrasion sample, I'm 29 serum, either the coco mango or the voluptuous body butters, linen spray, sugar scrub. No perfume please. How do you feel about pomanders? They smell good - I used to make them for people. How do you feel about savor soaps? No bar soap for me please. I am not really a fan of whipped soap either, but I do like sugar scrubs so I added some of those to my etsy wishlist. I added some whipped soap too, but mostly for the scents that I liked, not for the whipped soap itself. Or Perfectly Posh? No thank you. Do you have feelings about fruitcake? We're talking whiskey soaked homemade fruitcake, not a brick in a festive tin. So I've only ever had one fruitcake that I liked -- cherry almond fruitcake (with pears, marzipan, and amaretto.) I usually beg my mom to make me one every year. Any strong nail polish and/or makeup preferences? I don't usually wear nail polish (except for BPTP polish!) but I have some on my etsy list that changes color (I'm a sucker for color changing things) and I'm really intrigued by ilnp. (Raven, Abyss, Moonstone, Birefringence, Westwing, By Nightfall, Ava, Walking Home, Missed Calls, Deja Vu....) Makeup wise, I only wear prescriptives foundation and powder. I love black eyeliner that won't smudge or smear (I've been using Stila smudge stick and kat von d tattoo liner but both of those still run a little.) I just got two lippies in another swap but I can always use more (light 'blue leaning' plums/rose.) I don't wear brown, yellow, gold, beige, or cream. I'm into silver, black, grey, purple, blue. Sometimes reds/greens but not often. I have a ton of loose eyeshadows but rarely wear them. I could use some good mascara. Favorite animals? Not in any particular order: Bats, pibbles, friesian horses. Mythological: hippocampus, unicorn, gargoyles/grotesques, toothless. Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff? I have a strong preference for things that are useful as opposed to things that just sit. Games, shirts, foods, yes! (no bar soap please.) Would you be interested in Colorpop? The only palette that calls to me is the Yin to your yang. For lippies, I like Ice Cube, Sauce, Baewatch (ugh, I hate the name though), and the Amethyst crystal balm. Black eyeliner. Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3? No thank you. Do you like toffee or fudge? Fudge yes, but no nuts or anything in my fudge. Love butterscotch or peanut butter! Plain chocolate is awesome too but my mom makes that, as well as toffee, every year. How do you feel about amigurumi (little crochet stuffies...animals, characters, ornaments, etc.)? I like them! (We make and sell them on our etsy store.) My most favorite one ever was a pit bull amigurumi that was gifted to me. 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? I really don't like most crocheted wearables, I prefer knitted. I am on Ravelry as misstwilight and I do have some bundles under my favorites called "make for me." Please don't make anything out of my general favorites. What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics? Lately I have been mostly using the keurig to make coffee and tea (or using cold brew coffee.) I do have some coffee beans and tea on my amazon "edibles" wishlist. I like black tea, especially flavored or cinnamon, and mint tea - especially with licorice. (I hate chamomile.) I love sweet hard cider, especially JK Scrumpy and Ace's pumpkin cider. Ghiradelli Double Chocolate cocoa and Vosges Parisian drinking chocolate are my favorites. Alcohol wise, I like just about everything but mostly things like amaretto, baileys, kahlua, sinfire, vanilla vodka, marshmallow vodka, etc. What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc? Vanillas, spices, woodsy, smoky, incense, marshmallow, patchouli, resins, tobacco. Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen? I'm probably pretty good on spices since I don't cook much. What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for? Probably my altar. I could use an altar cloth and some other items. We do a lot of baking and holiday good ridiculousness around here...house specialties include lebkuchen (flourless, they're mostly nuts, spices, candied fruit), marzipan, butter caramels (flavored or plain), shortbread crisps, and savory cheese shortbread. Any of these sound appealing? Nothing with nuts please. (It's a texture thing - I like nut butters though.) We do caramels too but I'd love to taste yours, especially flavored! Mmmm savory cheese! What are your top places to get a gift card from? ooh, hard to say. Smellies wise: BPAL/BPTP, Moonalisa, Nocturne Alchemy. Food wise: Panera, MOD Pizza, Qdoba/Chipotle, Trader Joes Otherwise: Amazon, Twisted Fiber Art, The Loopy Ewe, Paradise Fibers, Fresh from the Cauldron (etsy), Teeturtle, ThinkGeek, Costco. I'm sure I could think of more but really anywhere would be a treat. Which holiday symbols/themes do you like the best (or least)? Such as Santas, snowflakes, reindeer, etc. KRAMPUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also snowflakes. Do you like puzzles? I play a lot of puzzle games on my ipad but I don't do anything that requires me to hold a pen/pencil and I no longer do jigsaw puzzles (no place to put them, all of our tables are covered in other projects like cutting boards for fabric, sewing machines, etc. plus one table to eat at.) I went from a huge house, to sharing a basement, to having one small room, so my stuff is pretty crammed in here. Do you have a strong preference for numbered packages vs randomly picking with maybe a few hints along the way? Nope. Either way is fine. Are you jonesing for any particular BPAL right now? Anything you are just dying to try, even just a sniffie? Beautiful Macabre, Mummies of Mexico City. (for sniffing) How do you feel about the following flavors/ingredients: Coconut? I like coconut chips and toasted coconut, coconut oil for cooking, coconut sugar for baking, but I'm not really a fan of things like mounds or almond joy. Mint? I love mint tea (especially combined with licorice root.) Mint frangoes are sometimes good, but otherwise I'm not a huge fan of mint and chocolate, it has to be something I'm in the mood for. Lavender? I love lavender everything. We made lavender vanilla liqueur this year, as well as cordial for lavender lemonade. Rosewater? Also made rose petal liqueur, rose jam, etc. Nom! Cardamom? Yes. Candied citrus peel/marmalade? My mom received some homemade candied orange peel in a recent ravelry swap and they were SO GOOD. Yes. (not a fan of marmalade though.) Anything to absolutely avoid? flavor wise, I'm just having a hard time thinking of what to absolutely avoid beside things like mincemeat, pecan pie, lutefisk, things with nuts or marshmallows (texture, not flavor), etc. Would you like anything crafted for the storage or transport of the BPAL? (Travel imp containers, boxes for 5mls, bottle cozy, etc.) I use ammo boxes and mint tins for imps and I have tons of boxes (both travel and storage) for bottles, so I'm good there. I wouldn't mind wall display type things for BPAL though! Like nail polish racks or coffin shaped shadow boxes with bpal sized shelves? Someday I am going to order the BPTP wall sconce for bpal bottles. If so, do you prefer them to be plain or decorated? Either or! If decorated, are there any motifs or art that you'd particularly like? I love celtic knots (ravens, dogs, horses, ferrets, just knots), swirly things, nightmare before christmas, bats, corvids, gargoyle/grotesques, skulls/calaveras, eye of horus/ankhs, krampus. More on the darker/gothy side.

    Chaos Theory VI: Recursive Self-Similarity v5

    114 I just received this bottle from someone else, there is less than half left so maybe it was well loved? Sniffing the bottle, I get honey as the first note. Wet on skin: Amber with a hint of honey. Dry down on skin, a non-foody vanilla, amber, and possibly a bit of musk or spices, as it's getting kind of a snake oil vibe. it's gorgeous. (It smells a lot like O but less honey mixed with snake oil.)
  10. twilighteyes

    Broadway

    This was totally sweet patch in the bottle to me. On, the same. Dry down, the musk finally started to peek out but otherwise still mostly sweet patchouli. I'm glad that the lilac and caramel are only in supporting roles and never really became noticeable as themselves but remain blended.
  11. twilighteyes

    Mannahatta

    I put this on before heading to an event. When I got home and sat down by the computer, I was wondering who was wearing Calvin Klein. This totally smells like a mix of CK one and CK Be to me. Both of which I actually like, so a winner!
  12. twilighteyes

    Snake Oil Jelly Donut

    In the bottle: Yum! It does smell like a musky sugar jelly baked good On the skin though, I amp more of the musk and vanilla and less of the jelly bits. It ends up not smelling at all like a baked good but I can't put my finger on what exactly it reminds me of. When I can think of it, I will return!

    Tushnamatay

    Frankincense, sandalwood, and jasmine.

Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) 9/18/17 It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them?

I have a large queue of books to read and review. :/ So please no books. 9/13/17 Would you like to receive a scarf or hat? As I said in the question about knitted things, I don't wear scarves (unless they are super special that I picked out, sorry) and the only hats I wear are newsboy type caps, but again I am really picky and would probably need to pick it out and try it on. 9/12/17 Do you want wax melts? I wouldn't say no - but I rarely rarely rarely use them. Like once a year, if that. 9/11/17 I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would be interested in? Mmmm fun flavored kit kats!!! (I can get green tea and strawberry here.) I'm in The Netherlands. Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in? I have no idea since I've not been there on what is available. Chocolate? Yarn? Bath & Body Works - love them or hate them? If the former, fave product types? Well, all of their stuff has SLS's and they are definitely not phthalate or paraben free so pretty much a hard pass on any of their bath or skin products. I don't mind their candles and wall flowers (sometimes. Usually scents are much too overpowering and perfume-y but the vanilla scents are ok, although I'm totally sick of vanilla bean noel.) I really wish they still did the honey lavender pillow spray. I hate chamomile but I might be interested in the lavender pillow spray if it actually smells like real lavender. edit: I was just in there for shopping for swaps and their new Lavender Cedar wall flowers are great! Maybe the sprays too -- the Vanilla Patchouli and the Lavender Cedar. (I think they have both pillow sprays and room sprays.) how would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? if you are on board with that, would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? I'm good on containers, I use the IKEA FIRA 9 drawer boxes and while they're full, I have another one left to build. But I'm trying to destash my collection since it's pretty much beyond life expectancy so I'm hoping to never build that one. I also use tea chests. Now if I could get someone to paint these IKEA chests for me that would be the best ever. I'm not an artist. I have have plenty of tins for travel purposes. I'm no fun, sorry! Now, if you wanted to send me a hand painted container for something else, I'm your girl!! I have one of the (newly available again in the US) IKEA MOPPE chests and I'm using it for my witchy stuff, but I could definitely use a couple more. Their drawers are much too tall for BPAL bottles and aren't as deep, but they're great for chime candles, incense, sage smudges, etc. (3 drawers on top, 2 in the middle, and a wide one on the bottom.) They're about $14 so pretty reasonably priced, and they're pretty light - just bulky, so no idea on the shipping. But if you happened to be in Seattle or whatnot, I'll be traveling there in October and I'm sure you could find a minion to meet up with me. if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? As a knitter, I am already overflowing with hand knit things. I don't wear hats, cowls, or scarves normally. I loathe triangle shaped shawls. If you're a knitter, you're probably friended with me on Ravelry (or you can go look at my profile) and see my favorites and other details like what I like color, yarn, and pattern wise. I have some bundles called "Make for Me" and some swap specific bundles for halloween/vampire swaps that I would be delighted to receive things from. Nail wraps - yay or nay? Would including a small manicure set to go with them help? No thank you. I have a friend who does jamberry and is always pushing their stuff at me. I bought some once to shut her up but I've never used them. 9/9/17 Disney? I like going to disneyland and would love to someday go to disneyworld... If so, any favorite characters? Bambi (what, I like deer), Eeyore (what, I have depression too), Mèrida is best princess imo but I doubt I would purchase anything specifically to do with her? I also grew up as a tomboy riding horses and stuffs, although I currently have no archery things. The compound bow and targets were left behind with the ex. Also Scottish. <3 <3 <3 Oh yeah, I always forget that NMBC is Disney. NMBC FTW! I have tons of NMBC stuff and collect the cookie jars. I could really use some more PJ's, mine have a hole worn in the bottom. And to be more specific about Disney: How do you feel about Beauty and the beast? I like the movie(s)? The first one came out after my son was born (I think The Little Mermaid came out right before? I didn't name my son after the movie, but my friend named her daughter Ariel and my son was named Eryk.) At one point we had to stay in a small apartment between one house being sold and waiting for the new house to be ready to move into and Beauty and the Beast was the only vhs tape we had... my poor son got to the point where he was saying "NO BEAST! NO BEAST!" I still tease him about that. I kind of want to make a lace pattern based on the photo of the windows from the recent movie. Also I love that Gaston is incredibly gay. And what about Harry Potter related items? Well, I mean it depends on the item. I have all kinds of Harry Potter related yarn and patterns because it's something consumable that I can use. There are some cute Harry Potter clothing items from Torrid that I drool over. ALWAYS speaks to me and I have a mug that I keep makeup brushes in that says ALWAYS on the side and has a doe on the other. I would LOVE to go to Harry Potter world and I do enjoy receiving owls and chocolate frogs. I kind of drool over the Harry Potter lootcrate (and Firefly and ....) Dunno if lootcrate has relaxed women's babydoll type sizes, probably not. I don't wear regular men's t-shirts, I'm much too curvy and they don't fit me comfortably. Pokemon? Any favorites? I used to play Pokemon Go on my phone when I still paid for it, but I can't afford it anymore. Other than that, no. My son was really into Pokemon when he was little. (He's 27 now.) Is there any thing, category, or brand from which you would absolutely NOT like to receive things (ie., you're overrun with candy corn, you don't do scents outside of BPAL, or if you ever see another Stephen King item, it will be too soon)? * Bar soap. Please $deity, no bar soap. (unless you make it! then please bring ALL OF YOUR SOAP.) I make soap and I have SO. MUCH. * I also don't need any tealights, I buy those unscented by the 100's. * Also no books, physical or electronic, unless I specifically request them. Please ignore my Amazon book wishlist, it's mostly there for me at this point. * no socks. I rarely wear socks and I am very picky about them when I do. I have super large feet so most women's socks don't fit me anyway. * coffee mugs. I have boxes and boxes of starbucks city mugs because I used to collect them, but I'm considering getting rid of them all. The only mugs I would want would be a 20oz mug with a lid so bugs didn't get in it, but something that is machine washable. What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap? I do have room to hang things on the wall since all of my other artwork is packed up and in storage. I collect grotesques and gargoyles. I have an artwork section on etsy too if you want to look at the kinds of things I like. 9/9/17 What rares are you dying to try? There are a ton of eclipses and liliths that I'm going to miss out on - just updated my wish list with them. Goth Queen and Snake Oil Jelly Donut both come to mind. Blue wig spray? I JUST GOT SOME SNAKE OIL JELLY DONUT, WOO WOO. Do you like comic books and/or graphic novels? I do, or I used to when I could see, lol. Sandman, Watchmen. I have the first Lucifer graphic novel on kindle. 9/8/17 Are you ok with homemade food? Yes, as long as you follow proper food handling techniques (I have a food handling certificate so hopefully people will be comfortable receiving from me) and - well, I'm really picky about non-GMO, no corn syrup, no red dye 40 or food dyes if possible, organic stuffs only. I also can't have nuts or dried fruit right now because of my kidneys. Or sodium. Or too much protein. :/ I'm not supposed to have coffee, chocolate, or dairy, but I would die without my daily coffee with cream. I figure all things in moderation but am still trying to follow the guidelines when I can. I'm not actually on a diet restriction YET, just guidelines. One more test next month to see how things are. But my GFR has been in the 40's which is third stage kidney disease and one level above dialysis. My GFR *should* be above 90. If you are ok with decorations, do you have a preference for table-top, wall hanging, or window decorations? I'd have to have wall hanging since I am staying with family while going through my divorce (god this is dragging on forever, it's been almost a year since I moved out of his place) and I only have one small room and no table space. I'd rather not cover the window since it is very small and my dog likes to look out it. I do love the halloween bottle containers (without corks, the ones that actually fasten so you can really use them) that come in different colours with cool bottle toppers and labels. Michaels had some really cool ones with bat or skull toppers. My mom got me a bunch of these for my birthday so I'm pretty much set... I also kind of have an animal skeleton collection going. I have a raven, rat, small pug type dog, and larger floppy eared dog. I'd love a bat or cat! How do you feel about stationary and/or papercrafting supplies? I absolutely do not ever write anything except jotting a super small note down (my hands don't work properly - sometimes it's hard to knit or mouse) but I like spooky washi tape with skulls or bats! How do you feel about kitschy/silly Halloween jewelry? I feel like no fun! I don't wear even nice jewelry except my scent locket or occasionally another necklace or pendant. Sometimes rings/bracelets/anklets but right now I'm very swollen from kidney problems. So I'm sorry, but no. Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? If you were to make it, sure! I love black and purple, skulls, bats, ravens... I'm a huge NMBC fan. absolutely no brown, red, orange or country cute type stuff, gothy only for me. I like the two black and white ones but not the one with coloured balls. I even have a wreath hanger on my door.
