    Ketchup! Halloween SW 2012

    thank you, kindly witch, for reminding me that yes, there are other things I need to do via SW besides gather shiny stuff! And please let me apologize for how rusty I am. The last year and a half of my life have literally been a whirlwind. behold, all the ketchup I could find: September 10th What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with? Maynard James Keenan from TOOL Are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update? not really, I've edited myself down to just a handful of bath and body purveyors If you have a pet, would he/she/they like to receive a treat or a toy as a gift? Does your pet have any dietary restrictions or other preferences w.r.t. said treat? Madamoiselle Minue ( my American Long-haired Calico mistress ) LOVES it when I get packages from Bpalistas, she loves the scents. So yes, I think she'd love something for herself in one. No dietary restrictions. What are your top three Storyville, Dead Man's Hand and Quincy Morris. and I just realized that you probably don't have my Scentbase account info, so here it is: https://scentbase.com/kristana Is there a particular artist and piece that you would like a print of? I adore Edmund DuLac. and I have nothing on my walls yet, we just moved in. If you are in to beauty and makeup related stuff, what kind of stuff do you like? What is your skintone and hair color? I am very pale and my hair is sort of a honey hue. Are there any beauty products you've wanted to try but just never purchase? yes but they are expensive so I feel bad answering this. Guerlain meteorites and Chanel Cherries in the Snow ( but I think that one is discontinued) Do you like coffee or tea? Would you be interested in trying some different types? I am a black tea whore. I am not into coffee as much, I am in Europe so I am addicted to freshly made cappucinnos. Are there any CDs/Albums you've been wanting but haven't bought yet? What format do you prefer? My son is a drummer so any music he or I want we almost immediately get. Are you going away for any part of this round? sadly no Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch? sure! I think I have a cd player in my husband's car September 9th Do you like to burn incense? If so, what are your favorite kinds...sticks? cones? resins? What are your favorite scents? yes yes yes!!! not really cones as much as resinss and sticks. My go to every day incense is Nag Champa Harry Potter - a fan? If so, what house are you? not a fan If you were to receive a gift card, what places would you like to get one from? a Halloween place! Like candles or something Is there a particular myth/folktale/legend/fairytale/godstory that you're drawn to? All. I am Pagan. If you RP, tabletop, forum, or otherwise... Do you have any original characters you'd like to see art of? If so, please give information! Even if it's a link to a web page or a profile or picture! I haven't played DnD in many years, so no thank you If you could see anything, what would it be? Can be a person, an event, a landmark or monument, an object, etc. And it doesn't have to be on this planet, or in this time period, or in this reality! that question is too epic for my coldmed addled brain When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? bond with Minue, have some tea and sit on the terrace What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters? my favorite comic heroes have always been Conan, Thor, and Red Sonja Are you musical? Do you play an instrument, and if so, what? If not, what do you wish you could play or do? I used to be a drummer but not in many years Does anyone garden? And if you do, what do you grow? If not, would a starter garden kit be something you'd be interested in? I love gardening. I am interested in vines for my picture window right now but honestly I love any and all gardening.

YES! elegant, scary, vintage, kitschy, you name it, all in different room, of course Witchee, do you have any symbols or totems that have special meaning for you? the crescent moon, antique depictions of comets, stars Is anyone fond of programs like Adopt a Tree/Highway/Library/Manatee/Acre of Rainforest/etc?: I sadly had my naivity broken by a couple of charities, so now I become personally involved if possible September 8th From the Weenie Update....what are you most wanting to try? the haunted house line, I adore it! Boo, Ghost House, I really want Third Charm. After fighting in court all last year to finally get Cade out of that horrible place and then moving to Germany, I won't be getting most of my favorites.

I am into pretty much anything that is not pastel Is there a quote (or lyric or part of a poem) that really resonates with you or is your favorite? With my feet upon the ground I lose myself between the sounds and open wide to suck it in, I feel it move across my skin. I'm reaching up and reaching out, I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me. And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been. We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been. Lateralus, Tool Dream candle? Scent, color, type (tealight, votive, pillar, jar, etc.), throw..I love candles. Adore them. Right now it is all about Halloween. The BPTP candles are crack to me. I only have Samhain. Do you like knitted goodies? If so, what would you like and what colors? I love them.

    Snake Oil Hair Gloss

    I LOVE the incensie woodsie resinie smell in my hair! I spray it on my brush so that I can evenly distribute it and I can't stop smelling my hair and it's been 2 days. My hair is naturally curly and fine and so far I've only used it after blowing my hair out. I can't wait to see what it does on my curls.

    Mule Skinner v1

    I agree Eden Sixth Day, I thought it was going to be leather, rawhide and maybe sweetgrass or something, but it's not. In the bottle it smells completely different that on my skin, which is a good thing. I didn't realize it, but yes, whiskey does sound right to me. Not as fantastic as I wanted it to be, but not bad, not bad at all. I thought I was the only one who bought it

    The Decrepit House

    I love it, this is by far my favorite of the new Halloweenies that I've tried. It's in my top 10. I think the oakmoss is amazing, it's just the perfect amount, not too mossy but just right. It's the perfect wood scent for me, I was afraid the cypress would be powdery but it isn't at all. 5 out of 5.

    Black Annis

    I didn't like it at all on first sniff, but tried it anyway. I hate vetiver, this scent is so not for me and the anise, blech I think I amp something horrid in this mix, I had to wash it off which has only happened to me once before with BPAL.
  7. krissstephens

    Cat Allingham

    It absorbed right into my skin too, Edens Sixth Day, after about half an hour. It's very faint.. and I am surprised too because in the bottle is does smell extremely resinie. I love the sweetness and I am not sure where it's coming from but I get a green note. I can barely smell the cumin. I wish this had more throw because it's such a beautiful scent.
  8. krissstephens

    Xmvlzencab Soap

    this is my favorite of the BPAL soaps. the honey scent lingers for hours on my skin, and I adore it. I get more honey than spice.

    Oh no... it's Ebay

    Puddin, I heart you.

    Scent for Matariki (Maori new year)

    knowing Beth I wouldn't be surprised. If she made one, what scents do you think would be right for it? I'm really curious, I have no idea what New Zealand smells like, or a Maori deity for that matter! I have to also admit, I think Maori men are sexy as hell. I once had a year long flirtation with a Maori man who owned a salmon farm. He was also an artist, he did pendants out of abalone shells. He was a very intelligent, eloquent man.

    Scent for Matariki (Maori new year)

    I have been fascinated with Maori culture for years, I think the tattoos are amazing ( and I am not a tattoo person ), and I covet the art. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Fenris Wolf

    my fiance' isn't a big BPAL fan either, at least on himself, but he loves this scent. He amps the red musk in a very good way and the amber doesn't go powdery on him at all.

    Traipsing through the Crop Circles

    the dirt note is a little heavy for me.. ADDED May 15: Holy crap! this oil is a huge morpher. after an hour or so on my skin it turned into a gorgeous delicate herbal green corn scent. I LOVE it.
