    SW Q part 5

    Dear Witch, this isn't all the questions. I've left out some either because I've already answered them in some form before or because my answer is some variation of "no, I don't want that". Would you like any ecotools makeup brushes? Sure. Also samples of concealer or foundation, mineral makeup is preferred, would be nice. I can never find something I really like that I'll wear regularly. Sometimes I do get Every Day Minerals but I imagine there's something better out there. I wear "fairly light". $50 on BPAL - I'll assume this doesn't include BPTP but if it did I would get a couple Atmosphere sprays. Otherwise, I'd get 5 mls of Love Lies Bleeding and Dirty, and a few random imps from my w/l. Arcana Weenies - I don't know where to find a list of these but I'm always open to samples. So what say you? IS an "unexpected" visit/in-person witching OK? Expected please Is there something that you wish you could do, but you keep putting it off? I need to start drawing again. And writing. I can't seem to make time lately. Witchee, have you made (or are you planning to make) any Lab or Trading post orders soon: I got some decants coming which I know I've listed somewhere. I also ordered Pumpkin Princess, Sonnet D'automne, and Vampire Bride. But none of them worked for me so I'm going to end up selling/swapping them. If your witch were to knit you a scarf/shawl/cowl, which would you prefer? A cowl or short scarf. Wool is my favorite but doesn't have to be. Thick and WARM. What's your favorite horror movie? The Shining, Jaws, The Thing If your witch was the practical type and wanted to include one or more of your everyday essentials, what would those include? Black tea. Whole bean unflavored coffee, alpha hydrox retinol night resq, neutrogena dry touch spf 15, breath mints, beer Do you like period or period-styled paraphernalia? Stuff like postcards, notecards, jewelry, office supplies, what-have-you? sure If you could choose a Smack, what would it have in it? Surprise me Are you scientifically curious and/or process-oriented? Would you like a project-type gift that allowed you do do something like make soap from scratch, take and (nontoxic-ly) develop photographs using a pinhole camera, use plant dyes on yarn or fabric, etc.? Yes Do you like homemade snack mixes? Yes Colors! http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/Hayley/loves What are the feelings on arm warmers? Color, style, texture, length? I will add some to w/l. Sock dreams has a lot that I like. Do you like tarts? tealights? jar candles? votives? All What is your favorite coffee blend at Starbucks? If you don't have one, what is your favorite roast of coffee? Meh I don't care for Starbucks but otherwise like to try just about anything. how do you feel about ethical animal fiber, i.e. wool and the like? Yes, like. What about little wee creatures for your desk or mantel? Maybe Look down. What are you wearing, right now? A black angora/lambs wool sweater. Plain black pants from Old Navy. A red and black striped long sleeved shirt. Burgundy socks. It's the weekend, and you find yourself without a single chore or responsibility for a few hours. Right this very moment, what's the one thing you would do if you could do anything? Go for a long, long walk Would you be interested in regional jams, jellies, or other preserves? Of course Is there any kind of international candy you love or would like to try? English candy is awesome. Also, Fantales and Tim Tams from Australia. Love trying new international goodies. Are there any local museums/attractions you keep never getting around to going to? Oaks park what level of contact were you hoping for? At least Medium. Is anyone else afraid of or creepy out by dummies/puppets/Muppets/etc? I don't like Muppets Sooooo Witchees, have you ever taken that particular personality test? Probably Analytical? What is something people are always surprised to learn about you? That I'm old enough to have a 7 year old. I have just been enlightened to THESE. Are these flavors relevant to your interests? Tastey lip balm is weird Do you drink wine? Not regularly, it would be an expensive habit. But I like wine. Like commercial socks? Yes, I'm usually running short on plain socks how do you feel about hemp? jewelry, soap, etc? Soap yes, jewelry not so much but maybe? Witchee, would you like anything from this particular Haunt update? I haven't looked but if you think there's something I might like based on the notes I like, go for it. You get a package in the mail containing 3 things you have really wanted more than anything else you've mentioned so far in this thread. I'm always happy to receive jewelry especially earrings (Even Claire's has cute stuff!), socks from sock dreams, aaand I guess I'd really like an atmosphere spray.

    SW Q part 4

    What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?: Oh this is hard, too much random bullshit. Hot pads (they don't have to be cute or anything, I just need some new ones). I like cute or interesting magnets, but never seem to buy them, and am always short on them. I have a few but I'd like more: glass jars. I like to put random collections of things in jars (such as filling them with buttons, or jelly beans). Also I lost my Diva Cup a few months back (I KNOW WTF?) and have yet to replace it. (Whoops I just realized I already answered this Q. Oh well. I thought of more stuff). Would you be interested in getting fountain pen inks or art supplies via JetPens and or DickBlick? I don't have a use for fountain pens but my boyfriend uses them to draw comics. For those interested in watercolors, how would you feel about getting a palette filled with paint from my watercolor tubes but not getting the paint tube itself? I always *mean* to get into watercolors like I do a lot of things, but sadly my motivation is probably not strong enough to warrant buying me nice watercolors. How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? The only art I really do is draw, because I read Drawing On The Right Side of the Brain about a year and a half ago and got really good at it! And then I stopped for a while and I'm really out of practice . I'm set on nice pencils, sketchbooks with quality paper is welcome. How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? I like some of them. I might have one or two on my w/l. I don't mind if they're girly cut or not. L girly, S men's. Avoid text. If you were turned loose in a basic drug store (CVS, Walgreens - a pharmacy with attached mini-mart, basically!) with a $20 bill, what would you pick up? Eye shadows, probably another eye liner, a candy bar like Milky Way Dark. Darling Witchee, would you enjoy farmer's market pickled veggies (green beans, garlic, asparagus, etc) or fresh canned peaches or something of that nature? YES all things of this nature. Do you prefer color or white photographs? Nature or abstract? All. Maybe more drawn to nature > abstract. would you be interested in something like this? That sounds cool but also.... pricey. I think it would be more cost effective for Witch to compile a collection of such things on her own. But it does look cool! Amigurumi, yes or no? Those are cute but it would only be special to me if it was something my Witch made for me, then I would love it. My daughter has one of those, she likes them. I have a question! What are some of your favorite paintings? (famous or undiscovered?) Feel free to link to examples! Hmmm. I've always liked Frida Kahlo. I LOVE medieval paintings (I love their 2 dimensional appearance, I think it's the Gothic period specifically). Stuff I like: http://coveroid.com/view-869___40x30__alley_by_the_lake-480x360.html http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:Penitence_of_Saint_Jerome_triptych_by_Joachim_Patinir.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Simone_Martini_071.jpg Additionally I'll check out Etsy for artists I like, that will probably give you a better idea. I DO NOT like paintings of girl-women with huge heads (I mention it because this style is so prevalent). If you could have an image painted for you - sky is the limit - what would it be? Oh I don't know! Nature stuff, especially surrealist nature, is pretty safe with me. Name your 3 favorite scents for candles: sandalwood, vanilla, violets. But I'm open too anything not overwhelmingly foody. Name your 3 favorite types/flavors of tea unflavored black tea, chai, rooibos

    SW Qs part 3

    When you're miserably sick (*sniffle, cough!*) what are the things that comfort you the most? I wear Velvet (the perfume) when I'm PMSing, because there's something comforting about it and it's one of the few blends that smells good still when I'm on my period. Staying in bed or on the couch. Loving attention from boyfriend. Chocolate and ice cream. What constitutes ultimate luxury to you? (go crazy!) Fancy, expensive cheeses. Nice, handmade Bath and Body products. I saw some people mention pedicures/manicures, I've never gotten a pedicure and would feel very uncomfortable paying someone to touch my feet. I do think getting a facial would be nice, I've never done anything like that. What do you really NOT want? Dollar store items, things from Oriental Trading Company. DVDs or CDs. interested in anything from Lush? I've tried a few of their soaps before and liked them. I browsed their website and nothing jumped out at me specifically, maybe because of the prices (30 dollars for a conditioner??) but I'd love samples. Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark? Definitely do you like chex puppy chow or muddie buddies (ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate chips, PB, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, chex cereal)? would you want to get some from your witch / nacho witch? I don't think I've had this but it sounds good. How would you feel about receiving a Groupon deal for something in your local area? If there is anything you WOULDN'T like, mention that also. Sure, but it would have to be for a place *in* Portland. Because I don't have a car and often it's just too much of a hastle on TriMet to get somewhere. I've never used Groupon but it looks like they have cool stuff! No fast food please. Thursdays are the best day for me to be able to redeem deals as that's the one day I have with my family, MOST of the time so restaurant stuff would have to be Thursday. Actually, if Witch should just check with me that I'm available to take advantage of something... do you like real sugar skulls? Things with sugar skull designs? Yes I do! I would love some real ones. Who here adores meringue? It's yummy Are you more prone to order out or cook at home? Would you be interested in cookbooks, kitchen utensils, and the like? If so, anything specific? I love to do both. Cookbooks are great, recipes, kitchen stuff in general is awesome. I will think about it more and update my w/l for specific items. New question: How do you feel about maple syrup? I tried real maple syrup a couple years ago and now I never eat the fake stuff. How do people feel about little pocket shrines, maybe something inspirational/motivational to keep in their purses/backpacks/whatever? (Like these: http://www.art-shrin...cketshrines.htm) Wow! I've never heard of these but I think the idea has a lot of potential. Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters? Nope. Do you like beef jerkey, I know some may be vegatarian, but where I live beef is a staple and beef jerkey abounds. If so do you it really thin, hard and crunchy or thicker and softer. (OK that borders on obscene)- I don't eat beef jerky often so I don't know what my preferences are but I do LOVE it. Also do you like or racier ecards from time to time and do you need to be warned if something may be not safe to open at work. I'm not sure what constitutes a racy ecard but please don't send me anything pornographic! A warning would be great not because of work but because my daughter could be in the room. Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay) I haven't seen it, should I be watching it? Anyone love Buffy/Angel? No How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? Yummy. How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals? No thanks Since this is a Halloween round, what's your Creepy threshold? Are you a cartoon bats and smily pumpkins person or a skulls-and-bones the-dead-are-rising kind of person? Are your fairytales dark or Disney? I'm kind of into cute vintage things, but not Disneyish necessarily. Creepy is good though. Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings? Only my ears and yes, I want all the earrings. (nothing really heavy, would just be uncomfortable) How do you all feel about Whoopie Pies? They look good Are you looking for a certain kind of DVDs to spruce up your collection right now? No Does anyone like postcards? Postcards are good, I like to hear from my Witch Anyone going to see any good concerts this fall? Not that I know of right now, but I hope something comes up! It's hard to work it out with work and childcare. Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? I do not. Witchee, would you like a framed photograph and of what? Hmm.. see amazon w/l for my aesthetics. Do you wear t-shirts? Are there particular things you like on them? Would you like one designed by your Witch? And, if you don't mind saying, what size t-shirt do you wear? Sometimes Medium for women's but Large is safer. Small in men's. I hate words on t-shirts, no words! A shirt designed by Witch might be neat. How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Yes! Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? Their pendants have text on them, in general I do not like to wear text. If you had an international witch, is there anything you would like from the UK? (Or Australia, Belgium, France any other country we have witches from. Foods!!! SOCK PREFERENCES? I KNOW I've answered this before (so many of these are redundant) but I like, in general, anklets and midcalves and I'll sometimes go for knee highs but not often. Tights and leggings are good as well. I think toe socks look uncomfortable but I've never tried them. Would you like/wear a pair of these? http://www.ravelry.c...rary/yoga-socks If so, what color? Link doesn't work but I don't do yoga. Is there anyone here who likes toe socks? You know, those socks with a place for each toe? I've never had a pair but I think I might find it uncomfortable. What strange misc. items would you love to receive that you just haven't gotten for yourself?: I need a pumas stone. How do you feel about franken polish? Are you okay with all chemicals, or would you prefer 3 free? Would you want glitter or holographic glitter? What colors would interest you? Does this mean making your own nail polish? That sounds like fun. Glitter is awesome. Chemicals are ok. Colors- I'm not sure until I try them on really. If I don't like the color my daughter can wear it. Dear witchee, how do you feel about lip balm? Favorite style (twist up tube, pot, tube with wand, etc.)? Favorite flavors? Flavors to avoid? Favorite brand? Do you need more right now or are you set? Are you one of those people who could never have enough lip balm even though you have a bowl on your dresser overflowing with them and 10 in your purse and an order for more on the way? I like lip balm but I'm not obsessed or anything. Non flavored please. I'd rather try some lipsticks.

    SW questions continued

    Would you be interested in a felted handbag? Do any of these styles appeal to you? http://tinyurl.com/3o2epzl (there's at least one guy-friendly style, too!) Those are really cute but I would really only use something that was messenger bag-type, as it needs to be at least somewhat practical for me. Are there are patterns, motifs, etc that you especially like? I like busy, ornate wallpapery patterns. Floral, filligreed. Lately I like stuff that depicts chickens. Audobon birds. Horses. I try to avoid vague bird imagery as it's overdone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XM3vWJmpfo) Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of? I do have a nice tea cup that girasol got me but another wouldn't hurt! If you're a tea drinker, is there any specific tea you would like to receive, not just the kind/flavor but also the type/packing--i.e., tea bags, loose tea, compressed, etc? Loose tea is prefered. Black teas. How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir? I love pretty household objects, however I have to be actually able to USE it. How did you dress up for your last party or compulsory-formal-dress occasion? This is, like, never. So I don't even know how to answer. Do you enjoy puzzles/riddles? (Cryptograms, Sudoku, Crossword, Jigsaw, etc) Not really. Can you sum yourself (whether it be personality, life's goals, ethics, whatever) in 10 words or less? I should be writing. How about little bottles of booze? Ya wanna? What kind? Any kind! What are your views on fudge and brownies? (Also, if you live in a warm place, where the fudge might melt, that'd be helpful to know. Or, if you're diabetic and fudge is death, that'd be useful to know, too.) It should cool down here pretty soon. Fudge isn't my favorite, but maybe I've just had bad experiences with the box stuff. Brownies are yummy. Also, what about mochi? Love it, hate it, baffled by it? I've never had this but I love trying new things. Anything from the update ya'll are liking? BPTP UPDATE. Samhain soap. Honey Pumpkin Stout Soap. Harvest Festival Atmosphere spray! White tea and sage hair gloss! Does anyone like kimchi? I don't know, would try it. Would you be interested in a sample box(from somewhere like Birchbox or loosebutton)? Yes! You have to place a Lab and Trading Post order. Right fuckin' now. No spending limits. What do you buy? Well if there was literally no limit what's to stop me from buying everything? I'd get many soaps, lots of back up bottles. Paintbox Soapworks - anything you're interested in, in general or from the latest update? I've answered this! Love them. Do you guys have any sports that you follow obsessively? How about favorite teams and/or athletes. No sports! How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like? Love all that stuff. Probably don't NEED anymore journal/notebooks but also can't resist sometimes. I love Moleskins but don't need one right now. Stationary of all sorts is great. Cute stickers, note cards, whatever. Does confetti/glitter make you angry or fill you with glee? Angry! Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want? I have received her cookbooks as she witched me in the spring round Her fiction isn't really my thing though! How do you feel about stuffed animals/plushies/general soft, cuddly things? If you like them, what kind of animals would you be interested in? I don't really care for these things, but if Witch is crafty and wants to make me a one of a kind thing, or something for my daughter, that's great and a different thing! General non-special plushies are clutter. I like octopi, owls, kitties, bunnies, deer, dinos, foxes. how interested would you be on somewhat personalized bottle cap labels? Like these that I did? Yes please!

    FALL SW questions part one

    Dear Witch, I have participated in 2 prior rounds of SW so inevitably a lot of these answers will be redundant. I apologize! From the Weenie Update....what are you most wanting to try? I could only order a few bottles and a few decants so I had to narrow it down a lot. I would also love to try: nocturnal reverie, araw ng mga patay, autumn cider, mictecacihautl, nothing but death, samhain 11, golden apple of the sun, black apple of saturn, glittering apple of the stars, the gorobble, the ta-ta, the two-tailed sogg, the wiley grasser, the zoom. Additionally I'll take as much Samhainophobia and October as I can get! 5mls or imps. Who's into nail polish? What colors/brands? I wear it on my toes mostly, rarely on my fingers. I have no brand preference. Darker colors are better but my daughter likes nail polish too, any color for her. Is there a quote (or lyric or part of a poem) that really resonates with you or is your favorite? Robert Duncan's "Often I am Permitted to Return to a Meadow". Dream candle? Scent, color, type (tealight, votive, pillar, jar, etc.), throw... Something with good throw, of any type. No color preference. Generally I'm disappointed whenever I buy a candle from Target or the like. Nothing overly foody smelling. Notes like pumpkin, cinnamon, apple etc. are good when balanced with other, non-foody notes. Additionally candle holders would be awesome. Do you like knitted goodies? If so, what would you like and what colors? I do. I like scarves that are not too long. hats, gloves, socks... what else is there? I'm pretty open. Blues, jewel tones, white, burgundy, plum, mustard, dark greens, red, black. Would you be interested in homemade edibles that are NOT sweets? Any specifics? Jams, sauces of any kind, breads, canned things. I'm open to all yummies. The only thing foodwise I'm not interested in is "diet" stuff. What GC do you live in mortal terror of the lab discontinuing, but never get around to buying? Phantom Wooer. Yo, yarnies! Do you Ravelry? If so, who are you over thar? Not a yarnie.. I don't have the endurance for knitting, I've tried a few times to get into it but I never finish anything. Social Media? I'm on Facebook but only so a few out of state friends can contact me easily if needed. You're not missing anything. Do you have wishlists for non-BPAL e-tailers? And if so, could you provide a link or a list? Anything else will be on my amazon W/L. Witchee, do you use a PC or a Mac? PC What is your favorite animal? Domestic cats. Birds (not so much sea birds). I love killdeer. What are you going to be for Halloween? I don't forsee dressing up, I'll be taking my daughter trick-or-treating. If you could have a piece of oil painting jewelry (pendant, pair of earrings, or ring) with absolutely anything painted on it, what would it be? (If you prefer wall art instead, same question as above.) This is hard. A dinosaur pendant might be cool. Maybe something for Halloween. I love sugar skull imagery. Something unexpected? As far as wall art goes I am fond of landscapes especially with a surrealist quality, depictions of nature > people. How do you feel about nick-knacks? Depends on the nick-knack. What traditions (family, holiday, or otherwise) are important to you? I love taking my daughter trick or treating. Christmas in general. Do you like going to the movies? Not generally, because it's expensive and I'm always distracted by loudly chewing/slurping patrons. Some independent theatres around here are cool... serve beer and are cheap but even still I don't go very often. I'm not big on movies, they seem to require an attention span and lack of cynicism that I have a hard time mustering. What are your favorite restaurants? I'm not a fan of most chain restaurants. Exception: Macaroni Grill. And a guilty pleasure is Hometown Buffet. Otherwise, I often go to brew pubs in town, Deschutes and Laurelwood being favorites. The mexican food by my house, good thai and indian restaurants. Do you play any video games? no Do you like any anime? No Do you have an E-reader/iPad/something similar that you need a cover/case for? no how much do you like jewelry? like, if you were to get a shit ton of it during the round, how excited would you be? Pretty fucking excited. My tastes are generally inexpensive. I like plastic stuff.. hand made things.. things I find at Goodwill/vintage stores/garage sales. Earrings and necklaces especially. How would you like to receive some of your Witch's favorite recipes, tailored to your likes/dietary restrictions? And specific wants? Recipes are always welcome, I cook a lot. Regional or authentic ethnic food is desired especially. No "diet" food. Butter > margarine. Do you need any boxes to store your smellies in? What would you store in said hypothetical box--imps, bottles, supplies, all of the above? All of the above! I have an ugly and overflowing faux wood finished box from TJ maxx, and it is not special in any way and would gladly have it replaced by something even slightly better. Muppets: yea or nay? nay. I think I even kind of hated them as a kid. Do you have an affinity for Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, The Far Side, and other comic strips? If so, which is your favorite? Not particularly. My boyfriend has an affinity for Peanuts. Favorite Mythological Creature?: Unicorns Do you like hair things barrettes, headbands, flowers: Yes! All the hair things. Do you like to burn incense? If so, what are your favorite kinds...sticks? cones? resins? What are your favorite scents? I don't burn incense very often because I discovered it gives me a headache. Shame! Because I do love it. If you send me some I will use it against my better judgement, open up the windows and hope for the best. Because I really do like incense! I have thing for the stick kind. I like earthy scents like sandalwood. Fruity incense is weird. Harry Potter - a fan? If so, what house are you? No, but my daughter loves it. She hasn't read the books, just the movies. If you were to receive a gift card, what places would you like to get one from? Amazon, Modcloth, Paintboxsoapworks, Villainess, Powell's, a make up retailer or etailer. Is there a particular myth/folktale/legend/fairytale/godstory that you're drawn to? I've always liked Greek Mythology and have a particular fondness for Artemis. If you RP, tabletop, forum, or otherwise... No RP When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? Napping helps, sometimes my rough days are related to fatigue and sleep problems. Ice cream (Haagan Das specifically). Take a walk or otherwise be out of the house. What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters? I like alternative comics. Married to the Sea is funny. I've read Ghost World and Ice Haven. My boyfriend has a few comic anthologies, I keep meaning to read more of them but I'm also always trying to read more in general. Not super hero stuff. Are you musical? Do you play an instrument, and if so, what? If not, what do you wish you could play or do? I can play guitar a little but I rarely do (I can't sing so I reached a dead end there). I have an autoharp that I have no idea how to play. I've always been fascinated by musical instruments, especially the harp and violin and piano, but I don't think I would ever find the time or true commitment to really learn an instrument. 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 live in an apartment with no porch or anywhere to grow anything HOWEVER there is a community garden starting up this coming spring just down the street from me! I am so excited to take advantage of it but I have never, ever gardened and have no idea what I'm doing. Perhaps a beginner guide? Do you decorate for Halloween? Is your decorating taste elegant, kitschy and fun, or scary? Yes I do! I do not think Halloween decorations should be elegant. I like vintage decorations probably of the kitschy variety. Last year we had an artificial christmas tree that we put orange and purple lights around, a plastic skull that was hollow, we cut a hole in it and stuffed a string of lights in there and mounted it on top of the tree. It looked awesome. I might have to do it again this year. Witchee, do you have any symbols or totems that have special meaning for you? I don't think so. Is anyone fond of programs like Adopt a Tree/Highway/Library/Manatee/Acre of Rainforest/etc?: Not a specific one but something like that would be great. What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with? I wouldn't describe myself as obsessed with anyone. are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update? OMG candles! Discord or Proscription for the candles. Any of the soaps. 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? My cat won't eat cat treats. She is playful so maybe a cat toy. Something to scratch her nails on that isn't my couch. What are your top three "I want to try them but I think I'll never get to try them" (or, "I've tried them and I want moar moar moar, but I don't think I'll ever get any") scents/bath oils/sprays? I love Severin, and I'll never get more . Same with The Unicorn. Pink Snowballs I really hope makes a return. Is there a particular artist and piece that you would like a print of? If so, what is your max size that you could spare on your walls? Nothing specifically. I have a lot of wall space that I need to cover. If you are in to beauty and makeup related stuff, what kind of stuff do you like? What is your skintone and hair color? Are there any beauty products you've wanted to try but just never purchase? I'd like more eye shadow, I never get around to purchasing any. Samples especially welcome. I have brown eyes, brown hair. I'm somewhat fair, a little bit of an olive tone to my skin. I'd also like blush samples, eye liners, and some mineral foundation (the latter I'll be sure to add to my w/l). Do you like coffee or tea? Would you be interested in trying some different types? Yes I like french press coffee. I like black teas usually. Nothing with artificial or "natural" flavors. Are there any CDs/Albums you've been wanting but haven't bought yet? What format do you prefer? (i.e. mp3, actual cd, record, etc) Honestly I never buy music... I just d/l it. Are you going away for any part of this round? No Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch? Sure but I'm picky If your witch were going somewhere on a vacation during the round, would you want a little souvenir? sure Do you enjoy any outdoor activities? Do you have a favorite form of "exercise"? I don't have a car so I walk/bike everywhere, which I enjoy. I would love to get into hiking, camping, fishing. But they're kind of expensive hobbies to get into. Do you work/study at a desk and enjoy interesting or cute office supplies? Yes! I don't work at a desk but I have a desk at home that I draw at and write at. Witchee, are you a fan of musicals? If so, which ones? Not in general. I like The Sound of Music and really liked Moulin Rouge at the time (not sure it would hold up ten years later). I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific! Ok with everything used as long as it looks clean. The exception being underwear/bras. Do you have an Etsy shop? no Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box? I LOVE Disneyland. I do not care for *Disney* but Disneyland is a different thing. I grew up in southern CA and have many memories that take place at Disneyland. I love the Haunted Mansion. I really hope I can afford to take my daughter there again soon! (She went when she was 3 but doesn't remember ) what are your favorite types of Halloween candy? Like: Snickers, Baby Ruths, Heath bars, Milkway Dark, Mounds, Raisinets, Twix, M&Ms, Peanut M&Ms, 100 Grand, Crunch bars, Pay Day, Gummy bears and other gummy candies, sour worms, Rolos Dislike: Reeses, Tootsie Roll, Hershey's, Kit Kats, Skittles, candy corn, most lollipops, cheap bulk halloween candy, Butterfinger (other people in this house might eat these though!) Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands. Soap! I know I've covered my favorites before. Paint box soap works, Villainess. I am open to all soap made with fine ingredients. Not as picky about scent as I am when it comes to perfume. How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel? DARK chocolate, any of that sounds good. Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like? I would like to be able to at least make some earrings, necklaces for myself. I think I have some stuff on my amazon w/l. Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?! Yessss Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like? I searched "hand dyed scarf" and thought this was pretty http://www.gallery5.com/leni-hoch-handdyed-silk-scarf-shadow-p-2907.html This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes? Sure And another question; anyone like anything in particular from Think Geek? I don't think so Pinterest, do you have boards you want to share or are you following anyone with great boards you want to share? Not on it Would you like to receive e-books? And if so, in what format? No but feel free to email me stories/poems/etc. If you have kids, would you be interested in getting things for them? And if so, what are they interested and what sizes are the wearing now? Yes! 7 year old daughter. Size Medium (7/8) is good. She has too many shirts but more doesn't hurt. She needs more warm weather clothing. She loves Littlest Pet Shop, Selena Gomez and Harry Potter. (Her WL: http://amzn.com/w/IIY3138C1C4L)

    Few more SW questions

    Easter Candy - do you like it? If so, what types? I like those little Cadbury eggs, I forget what they are called, but they have the hard colorful shell and chocolate inside. They're little. Gahh what are they? I like the cadbury caramel eggs but not the regular cream ones (too sweet). I loathe peeps, but my boyfriend loves them. What scent(s) are you petrified of getting DC'd? Kuang Shi, Dee, The Phantom Wooer. I'm just about out of Kuang Shi and my bottle of Dee is very low. I had a bottle of the Phantom Wooer but for some reason it was all wrong If they get DCed I'd literally cry. I don't have many rares so I doubt I'd be able to swap for them. Violette Market Update is up. Do you covet anything from it? I haven't looked, I can't even keep up with BPAL so I don't really know what's going on with the other similar etailers. I am suggestible though, and love samples. What is your favorite type of wine? Would you be interested in trying something new? In that case, is there anything you really DONT like? Ooooo how about dessert wines? I haven't really got into wine because it's too expensive. I stick to beer. I do like wine and would welcome it but I'm very ignorant about it so I don't have any known preferences. What three things are you craving right now? Coffee. Sees dark chocolate (I guess it was the "easter candy" question!). Lately I've been craving Animal cookies (the pink and white frosted ones with sprinkles), I noticed them at the store the other day and forgot how much I love them. paper goods, anyone need? including resume paper, and formal stationery as well as casual cards. Probably nothing formal needed. Cute/pretty stuff is welcome. Note cards, notepaper, stickers, notebooks, anything like that I love. What is a scent that you've been trying to find even a sample of for a very long time to no avail? (What bottle would you die to get your hands on - even a partial?) I don't think there's anything that stands out as absolutely needing to try, there's just lots that I would like to. I would like to try more lunacies, especially the more recent ones (so it's possible I could hunt down a bottle if I liked it). I would love to get a bottle, a partial bottle would be great, of Severin or The Unicorn. Is there anything in your life that you'd like advice or a "selfhelp" book for?: (ie finances, eating healthier, meal planning) Hmm I do read self help sometimes. Finances, no, because it's just hopeless. No diet books please. Maybe books on writing (I've read The Artist's Way and On Becoming a Writer, stuff like that). Spiritual/buddhist books, books on meditatiton. Nothing like "The Secret" though.

    And more SW questions...

    Would you want an invite to a site that is invite-only ex. Diaspora, Demonoid, etc. If so, what? I can't think of any, I don't know what those sites are. Pillows? What size/designs/colors would most interest you? Hmm. Maybe decorative pillows. I looked on Etsy and added a couple that appealed to me for reference. I'm open to anything though. There's no particular color scheme to my house. purses? bags? What style/colors? Nah I'm set there, set on wallet too. Decorative scarves for hair and/or creative accessorizing? What colors? I don't think I would wear those Would you like anything from Starring Fragrances. They make awesome hair stuff, natural deoderant, and home fragrance (and a ton of other stuff, those are just my favs)? I've never tried anything from them but it looks like nice stuff. Hair stuff, home fragances, lotions, etc. it's all good. Soaps? Be specific: if there are BPAL soaps you want to try or are dying for more of, tell all here! Also, any other companies people like or love? Villainess, maybe? Or Lush? What flavors??? Any of the BPAL soaps except Snake Oil (I haven't tried any). I love Villainess, they have probably my favorite soaps. I'm not as picky about scents when it comes to soaps as I am with perfume, I'm more adventurous. Um, I want to try more soap made with goats milk. Anything hand made and with rich ingredients and oils and all that goodness. Paintbox Soapworks, I like too, especially the White Cotton Sheets scent. I've tried some Lush soap, I did like it. What periods of art do you love most? Like, if someone was going to get you a tapestry or a box or some other item, what period would you want it to most resonate with? the pinks and golds of Rococo? the clean geometry of Art Deco? The romanticism of Art Nouveux? The strange lines of Cubism? Of those listed, Rococo and Art Nouveux appeal to me more. Ornate, filligreed. Would you like caffeinated lollipops?: http://www.lollyphil...cks-caffeinated sure, they sound yummy Copied CD's or DVD's? CDs, not DVD's though, I don't think my DVD player even works. Do you like poetry? I do! Sylvia Plath, Elizabeth Bishop, H.D. Mostly stuff written in the last 100 years. What types of scents do you like to scent your home? Which do you totally avoid? I like to avoid overly foody home scents just because they make me hungry. Also I'm picky when it comes to "clean" scents (lemony or ozone), I'd like to find good ones but so much of the time they just remind me of laundry detergent or dish soap. Incense-y notes like sandalwood, tea notes, florals, all that is pretty safe. What are your thoughts on comics? Any you like? Any you have been wanting to try? Favorite characters? My boyfriend is really into comics and draws some. I am more of a reader, but I do read comics from time to time and would like to find more that I like. Alternative comics like Chris Ware and Daniel Clowes. How do you feel about nail polish? What colors do you like? Sparkles? I rarely wear it and I have a lot already anyways. Household/kitchen goods/gadgets? Yeah I'm always lacking in kitchen goodies. A mortar and pestle, tongs (mine just broke), a kitchen timer, an oven mitt, a kitchen scale Ok geek check - what sort of geeky things do you do? Do you read comics/graphic novels? Are you obsessed with something (a TV show maybe?) Do you work in a geeky field? Do you play rpgs like Dungeons and Dragons? Would you like gifts related to any of these? I don't think I'm all that geeky, actually. I've never played and RPG and I don't get obsessed with TV shows. Do you have a favorite fabric? If someone were to make you a fabric item, would you prefer it be out of any fabric? e.g. velvet, satin, silk, cotton, bamboo??? Would this change if it were an article of clothing vs. a bag/pillow/blanket/somethingelse? If it was something wearable I do like wool. I have no strong preferences, it's all good. Anything with the Worm Moon update that you're already lusting after? I would love to try especially: Worm Moon, Enlightenment of the Courtesan Jigokudayu, The Amorous Tree. But really I'm up for trying any of it. If your Witch lived near you, would you be happy or creeped out to get a "coupon" for a service like cleaning help or babysitting or dogwalking or coffee out with your Witch or something like that? Would you be creeped out if a local minion personally delivered a package to your house from a far-away Witch? Well I don't have a dog, I don't need house cleaning. Coffee might be fun! Babysitting would be super cool, actually. If my witch or a minion wants to stop by that would be fine but I'd like some warning because I'm a pretty reserved person. Let's say I have a pair of something you collect, would you like one of them and we have matching things? Sure

    The notes for this sound amazing, so why is it just this vaguely fruity, powdery blah scent? Sad.

    More SW Questions answered

    Astrological charts and interpretation/ reports? I don't believe in this stuff, but I think its really fun. If it's something my Witch is into doing, go for it. So how does everyone feel about receiving ebooks? I'd rather get regular books, I don't have a kindle or whatever. surprise! the world has given you the day off. You hear that, no chores, responsibilities, or budget you have to follow. What would you do in those 24 hours? OOH GOD hard question. I think I'd go to the Hoyt Arboretum or camping alone or something like that. Spend the day alone in nature. Something I never do, but find myself daydreaming about a lot. Do you have any blogs you regularly read? I used to read lots, but really just http://iasshole.org/ and http://blog.iblamethepatriarchy.com/ lately Do you need another bpal box? If so what would your fantasy one look like? Yes. I have an ugly one I got at TJ Max or something but I'd like something nicer, something simple and wood maybe. Do you enjoy gardening? If so, what kind of stuff do you grow? Vegetables, flowers? I live in an apartment with no porch or bit of dirt so gardening isn't an option Social Networking sites: just LJ and Twitter but I haven't used it in months favourite artists or specific paintings? I've always been fond of Frida Kahlo. I like surrealist landscapes and watercolors. Don't like surrealist paintings of weird women-children with giant heads and tiny bodies, those seem to be everywhere is the only reason I mention it. Booze? Yay or Nay? what kinds? I love Microbrewed/craft beer.(Not budweiser, corona, etc. yuck!) Any kind really... India Pale Ales, Saisons, Porters. Steampunk inspired items? Yay or nay? I can appreciate it but I don't own anything steam punk so it would be out of place if it was something for my house or to be worn. Do you like amurigami dolls? I don't really care for having stuffed animals unless it's something extra adorable and special because it was made specifically for me. They are cute. Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies - who wins? Which do you love most? Mostly apathetic. If I had to pick, Zombies, because there are some watchable zombie movies. Do you like wearing things in your hair? If so, what kind (snap clips, scrunchie, headband, etc), how big & crazy (lowkey, bigger the better), and colors. My hair is short-ish and I want it shorter. So no hair ties. Clips and headbands. Especially hand made stuff. I go for hair things a bit more animated and one of a kind. Not low key. Piercings? - ears?? - elsewhere? Just earlobes. Earrings are welcome. Same as hair ties, when it comes to accessories I don't usually go for minimalist, low key things. Nothing heavy and REALLY dangly though, it would just annoy me. Chocolate. With stuff in it? Are you more a plain chocolate lover, a chocolate and normal items lover (normal items being nuts, fruit, caramel) or do you like weird stuff in your chocolate? (weird stuff being curry, chilis, balsamic vinegar, floraly things)? I haven't tried any weird chocolate so I can't say what I'd like specifically but that ALL sounds awesome to me. I'm adventurous when it comes to food. For those who like lipgloss, lipstick, tinted balms, etc, what colors do you wear (and warm? cool?) and do you prefer something sheer or more opaque? How do you feel about shimmer? I don't wear lip stuff but just because I can never find anything I like (but I haven't looked very hard), so samples would be welcome. No lip gloss, nothing sticky or shiny or shimmery. I'm not sure what colors would suit me. Are there any fancy/gourmet/special herbs or spices that you'd love to receive? ie: good quality vanilla or other extracts, vanilla beans, saffron, lavender, etc. Anything like that! What's your favorite animal? Or is there one that's particularly significant to you? I love ducks. I wouldn't say any animal is significant to me, it's just an aesthetic thing. I'm usually drawn to adorable depictions of owls and octopus. If you were able to get a vintage or prototype bottle from the upcoming West Coast Will Call, which one would you want? I don't even know what's available because I don't buy BPAL very often because I'm a poor-ass but if there's something there that sounds like it was meant for me Yes please! DVDs, Blu-Ray, both, neither? Neither Sock Dreams? What kind? (anklets, footies, etc.?) Yes! Obviously. Tons on my w/l. Anklets mostly. Since this is a price capped round, would you rather get one "big" thing or lots of "little" things or don't care? I prefer quality over quantity, but whatever. Do you like pirate-related things? Not particularly

    SW Questions

    Thirteen random songs: Suitcase in Hand - Casiotone for the Painfully Alone Girl Inform Me - The Shins Peking Saint - Cat Power Sunshine - Coco Rosie One PM Again - Yo La Tengo The False Contender - Camera Obscura Jesus Loves Me - Coco Rosie Ambiguity - David Thomas Broughton Way Out - Yeah Yeah Yeahs Macy's Day Bird - Diane Cluck Pressed in a Book - The Shins Caribou, Timberwolf - Dear Nora Treefingers - Radiohead Baked Goods? Yea Nay? Sure. I like most baked goods. When it comes to cookies and brownies I like them a little bit less sugary than some people like them. Fudge is usually too sweet for me. If not Baked goods and you are changing eating habits..a book of recipes perhaps that will help the new eating lifestyle? Recipes are always welcome, but I'm not into cooking really low fat or low carb things. I like food. If you were to make an order RIGHT NOW (Not that any of you will make any bpal orders until SW is over, because you do NOT want to mess up any plans your witch might have!) What would you order (from lab, forum, DD, TradingPost, etc): I would buy a bottle or decant of Picture Book and Pleasure Toys off the forum. From the lab I would probably order Kuang Shi (plus a few others, but that's my main desire right now). And from Trading Post, probably some Atmosphere sprays, I like most of them I've tried. What level of nudity are you fine with on items? Probably none. I know the ?aire asked about gently used books and if you like garage sales, but would you like other kinds of gently used items that may have come from a garage sale? Yes I would, assuming the person giving it has reasonable judgement and isn't sending something dirty or damaged. Do you like cooking seasonings, like the kind you can get in ounces sizes? Seasonings and spices are welcome. I'd like to find some good curry powder. Do you like any particular kinds of green or back teas or coffees that could also be gotten in bulk? Yes I like bulk tea, especially black tea. I like to try Earl Grey's. Sometimes I don't like green tea, but I am open to trying different kinds. I love maccha though. Favorite snack foods (and can they be from bulk section as well?) Cashews. Nuts in general, beef jerky. Cured meats. Good olives and pickles. Good crackers. If someone were attending Disney on Ice (Toy Story 3) with a bunch of Girl Scouts, would you want a patch/souvenir? No thanks, no one here's really into Disney. Would you rather have HUGE list of things your witchee wants to try or just a highlight list? With a huge list it would be easier to acquire things. Tim Tams? Yes or no? Chocolate Creme, Caramel, or Dark Chocolate? MMM!!! Girasol, my previous Witch, sent me a few different kinds. I wouldn't say no to any kind, the dark chocolate with cherry is my favorite though. Is there any "classic" literature (Hemingway, Dickens, Elliot, Bronte, Hugo, Wilde, etc.) that you would like to add to your collection? There's lots... too many to list. I would say if my Witch wants to know what ones I would like or already own they should message me or have someone else message me for a list. Otherwise I'll add some to my amazon w/l. e-goodies? Sure candles and/or aroma melts: yay or nay? Yes! I don't like foody scents for my environment though. Just makes me hungry. Also, no incense please. I want to love incense but it always gives me a headache.

    More ketchup

    Is there anything from Blooddrop that you want to try? GC? Halloween update? Never tried anything from them, but I'm always looking to try different Bath and Body products. Witch knows what notes I like, so I trust her judgement. What kind of shoes do you need/want? What size shoes do you wear? Would you mind gently used shoes? I wear a size 8.5. Used is great. I never wear heals or anything open toed. I would like some mary janes. Do you like paper dolls (new or vintage) or coloring in books? Vintage paper dolls would be cool. I like to color. Do you like weird scary things as traditionally girly fashion items like heels and handbags? No, I thought the shoes posted in the SW thread were hideous! (sorry) What song is on heavy rotation for you right now? "The Model" by Belle and Sebastian If you could get any one thing hand-painted from your witch, what would it be and what would be on it? I like landscapes of all kinds If you have played before, what are some of the most memorable things you've gotten? What really made you go WOW? If you haven't played, same thing, but not limited to SW. For Christmas my boyfriend got me this really cool vintage leather engraved wallet, it looks very similar to this but it's not a horse, it's a roadrunner. I think it's a dude wallet but it's so cool and I will keep it forever. What's your favorite Halloween Music? I don't think I have a favorite, it would be fun to have some though for the kid. Do you collect stones/rocks? I'm talking like "semi" precious stones, ie moonstone, bloodstone, quartz ect. Are there any that you're looking for at the moment? Are you in need of a stone but don't know which kind? No, I guess I'm not very interested. Just curious, but if your witch was to make an amigurumi critter (or other plushie) just for you, what would it be? Maybe a cute little octopus, or owl. Would you want a local/tourist item from your witch? Like a t-shirt, mug or shot glass? I don't think so, but postcards are cool Venomous Villains? Probably would rather have make up samples rather than a non-sample size, incase I didn't like it, because I often don't know what colors to choose or what brand. Last Unicorn? One of my favorites when I was a child. Who is your fav Disney Villian/villianess? How about hero/herione? (doesn't have to be specifically Disney though) Not really into Disney. If you could make a scent that represents where you live (or have lived), what would be the ingredients? Oregon - probably some combination of rain, rose, dirt, and something woodsy or piney. Are you in need of Roller bottles or anything of the like? Yes, and decanting supplies. Is there one scent that is your goto for comfort on a bad stressful day? Like the perfume equivilent of a security blankie? Velvet or Sudha Segara What are you going to be for Halloween? I probably won't dress up unless I think of something awesome and cheap, because I'm only just taking my kid trick-or-treating for Halloween. Is there something just super random you like/enjoy/want/are ogling that has not been and will not be covered by any other questions, because it's just that WEIRD? I'll think about this some more because there's probably something really random that I want. Not weird, but I need a soap dish for my fancy soaps. Villainess has an update. Anyone wanting anything from it? I'm probably going to use my giftcard to get some stuff tomorrow. Yay!!! how are all the witchees fixed for purses--lunchbags, etc? I don't need a purse, only a chrome bag, unfortunately they're very expensive! Um, I could use a good lunchbag/box. Now, I have a question for you. About notes. Which are your favourite ones? Do you have a kind of "note top ten?" Anything that works particularly well on you? Do you have a perfume category (foody, floral, aquatic, musky) that you favour? And are there any notes you have never tried, but think would work well on you? I've probably mostly answered this. I would love to find a pumpkin scent that I like because unfortunately it appears that BPAL's pumpkin note hates me. I like masculine scents, which I keep forgetting, because I hand them all over to my boyfriend. I like foodie notes but if something just smells totally edible even if it smells delicious I won't wear it, because I don't want to smell like a jelly donut or whatever it is. I don't like really fruity scents. Probably my ten favorite notes would be: rice milk, red musk, iris, milk/cream, tea, white sandalwood, patchouli, chocolate/cocoa, coconut, amber. Would you like a sugar skull decorated by your witch? Or do you like sugar skull stuff in general? Yes to both So, who here loves pomegranates? Are the good as a fruit, a flavoring or just a scent? I love pomegranates, pomegranate juice, etc. But as a scent it's too fruity. Anyone like little seasonal decorative wreaths? Like gravevine wreaths embellished with silk flora, etc.? Sounds nice! Do any witchees need a Snuggie? How can I resist? Would you like to receive international magazines, even if you don't speak the language it's written in, just to ogle the pictures or for the novelty of it? If yes, what kind of magazines, or what magazines in particular? Oooh that sounds really interesting. Nature stuff is always good. Anything I guess? would you have interest in any of the new Christmas stuff from Lush? I've tried some of their soaps and liked them so I'd have more. If someone were to make you one of the items in this post which would it be? (the scarves) #1 or #4 If you were my witchee, would you mind a gift certificate where you'd have to do it old school style and mail it in with your order form? That would be fine Today I got one of the Starbucks Halloween Bearista Bears - it's dressed like a werewolf! Is this something witchees might like? No Are you interested in Halloween costumes for your pet(s)? Well, it might be funny to me but my cat would probably hate that. Do you prefer scented or unscented lotions/moisturizers? Usually I get unscented so I can slather perfume without interference but if it's something that smells awesome I make an exception.

    Dear Witch

    Thank you for the ecards and the gift on Saturday. I haven't posted a proper thank you in the IGI thread yet but I will soon. I've been really busy this week and the forum is acting up every time I find time to go online.

    Dear Witch

    Thank you for the E-card. Yes, I think it's unanimous that Thriller is still cool. Pearl wears a size 12 (kids obviously). Very excited to see what that little tracking number is for!

    Dear Witch

    Sorry for the delay in responding to your E-card, it got sent to my spam folder and I only just read it. My weekend was great, thank you! I did not have my heart set on the Autumn soaps from Paintbox, I just wanted to try something/anything from them. I'm very happy with the ones you picked. Regarding your intriguing question, my daughter's innocence regarding profanity has long been sullied. She knows not to say those words herself, I tell her those words are only for grown ups. Not a concern at all. I'm excited to find out what you're plotting!
