    Switch Witch 2017

    Updated 9/30/17 Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts? https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1 YES. These are ADORABLE. I think a relaxed woman's 2XL should work for me. I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/ This definitely sounds delicious -- I don't drink coffee so maybe this is the alternative I've been looking for. How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)? I like make up but I almost *never* use it, though eye shadow always comes in handy for me; I use it when I need to paint my skin for cosplay. I'm more of a lipstick/lip gloss/ chapstick person for everyday use. What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? Scooby doo was my CHILDHOOD! I'm all about him. What are some NEW things you've gotten interested in this year? Could be anything, from a new hobby, new genre of book, new healthy way of living, new fav brand of whatever.. For me this year I've been all about wax melts; I've purchased a total of 6 warmers this year alone to scatter around my house. My wax stash makes my BPAL obsession look pitiful. In addition I've discovered indie bath and body where I always used to do just Lush. Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks) - What are your faves if you are? I love the black face masks-- you know, the ones you paint on and it cleans out your pores?? I adore peeling those off like some weirdo. It feels so refreshing! I also like taking horrifying snap chats of the animal face masks (there will be pictures of me wearing them if my witchee gets any for me). - If you aren't would you like to try something? I'd like to try everything! I'm getting better at taking care of my skin and am starting a routine, but currently I just exfoliate 2 times a week, wear a sheet mask at least once a week and try to wash twice a day plus moisturizer of course. Would love to kick my beauty steps up a notch. How would you feel about receiving a hand-painted container for your bpal and/or other treasures? - would you want a big wood box (~50 bottles), a small wood box (~20 bottles) or a tin for carrying imps around? 1000x yes for this question! A big wooden box would be the best for me since I have so many favorite bottles I can't decide. I need to start carrying imps around so I wouldn't say no to a tin. What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? - Coffee: whole beans or ground? - Flavor and roast preferences? No to all coffee, sorry! - Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? Fruity and light so like peach tea is my current favorite, but any fruity blend I'm into. - Loose leaf or tea bags? Either is fine. - Anything specific you don't like? Nothing too strong or astringent. I like my tea light and sweet. - Are you in need of any gadgetry? I will never turn down another tea strainer (even though I have like 10 at this point). Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? Maybe try me! I like Moonalisa's lotion, softest lotion I've ever used. Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like? I've been drooling over this entire update. Lush is liiiiifeee. I definitely would love to try the jelly bombs - I've never used one of those before! And the magic wand and ooo hedgewitch soap. . . Honestly almost everything from this update is magic. Can't wait until these come out! <3 Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? Um, YES. Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? - Or Haus of Gloi? Yes to cocoa pink, no to HoG. I haven't been feeling their scents very much recently. Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. Yes ~~ I'm currently planning out my planner for 2018 and will welcome any little things that'll make it more fun! ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/ Oh! They look amazing! Those magic top coats are gorgeous too. I might be putting an order into here soon enough lol. Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)? I feel like I'm saying yes to everything but these look amazing too. I'm definitely going to get my hands on that halloween box. Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? The candles are fascinating. I'd probably would be more than interested in one of those ~ Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? Welcome to Nightvale, RABBITS, The Black tapes and I'm just starting to listen to Tanis! There's some merch, but I honestly haven't explored any merch besides Welcome to Nightvale stuff. Are there any UK things you'd like to get? I won't say no to someone sneaking me some Kinder eggs. (Is that illegal? Ignore that if it's illegal.) Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/) I love future primitive -- someone sent me some during another round and I'm about a third of the way through the bottle which is a lot for me. Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? I would love to get into making my own B&B products, namely massage bars and oils, but also sugar scrubs. Honestly I think it'll be fun exploring scents and giving these as gifts to my friends and family. ((This wasn't phrased as a question, but I turned it into one lol)) Would you be interested in any of these? http://www.deardarkling.com/lies-beneath-boots-darkling-socks-fall/ Of COURSE. Anything warm and adorable that can go on my feet is welcome this season. Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, for what purpose would you want it to be made? Hm a friend of mine makes magical tea and I love hers. Honestly I go with what I need at the moment , which is normally luck and good health but that can change pretty quickly. Do you like poetry? I have no feeling for or against it -- I don't have any favorites or loves right now though. Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? Yes to all 3! I love handmade critters/stuffed animals. Custom repaints depends on the critter, but I won't say no to most of them. Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? I wouldn't know what to do with any nice/ designer yarn! I'm more of a cheap yarn person so I don't feel bad when I mess up haha. Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? I would love this! Any animal rescues (especially dogs!) is perfect for me. <3 Question! I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? That's such a hard question!! There's a lot of things I want but fun snacks are always awesome, or maybe something from one of my favorite animes?! I'll have to think about that one! How do you feel about nail wraps? I love all things nail related. .. . except for nail wraps. Maybe I keep my nails too short for them? I just know I've never had any luck with them. if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? Handwarmers I love them! I like fingerless gloves too and sometimes I wear scarves and cowls depending on the weather. But handwarmers I use everyday in the winter *hint hint*. My favorite would be in black, but I do love rainbows and really any color except yellow by itself. I can rock handwarmers with any outfit. If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? o_o Arya stark because she's a BAMF? I don't want to go through the horrid training she went through. Maybe Brienne of Tarth? Or maybe I should stay away from the death zone that is game of thrones. Outside of this Moana from Moana because she literally is one of my favorite strong female characters who is just her own form of BAMF. If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? I'm assuming this is like Doctor Who style time travel and would love to either go back to the "big bang" and see the creation of the universe, or I'd like to travel back to the Cretaceous period where all the big bad dinos lived so I could see them and just be able to experience them in their natural environment. If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? Neil Gaiman maybe? mmm this question bothers me since I don't really want to talk to super famous people. Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best. Nothing I'm super interested in unfortunately. (Or at least nothing that's less than $100). Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? If it doesn't put you out too much! I would prefer either a skirt or maybe a bpal pouch? A friend of mine got a homemade bpal pouch and its the cutest thing ever. Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories, special masks, or makeup or odds and ends? I love things from kryolan but it depends on the cosplay. Costuming accessories would be also dependent on cosplay, but I love beautiful masquerade masks, cloaks and other pieces. Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ I use sugar scrubs as soap so I don't really like buying soap bars. What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? I love almost anything! Fall and halloween are my favorite so anything skulls, bats pumpkins and so on. I like seeing the cute little decorations but if they're too "childish" I will most likely not use it. I also saw someone mention the green skinned bumpy witches; unless they're Elphaba from Wicked I tend to stay away from that cartoon characterization of witches. Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? CANDY?! YES TO ALL. The only thing I can't stand is black licorice ugh. Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? I have like 3 fidget spinners so maybe not more of those, but any fun little desk toys are always welcome! I have a tiny xmas tree I like to bring to work with me that I got in another swap. Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? I've always seen the books and been interested in trying, but I'm a hardcore doodler. Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? All of the above. Especially long hair clips with feathers! but since I've been growing my hair out I like decorating it. What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? Again, all of the above! Especially local honey -- I can't get enough of honey. Still no anise. Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? Yes! I've always wanted to try Ipsy; it seems like such a cute idea. I also used to get japancrate so anything from that line is always welcome (Japancrate, Doki Doki, Umai). Most snack subscriptions are good too-- I got tired of graze tho haha. Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? Mmm the nail effects maybe? I'm picky about that sometimes too. Depends on if it's something from the drug store or if it's a nice company. I'm not trying to be an a-hole I just break out easily lol. How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? Spotify and I-tunes! Mostly spotify but I also love some CDs. Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book? See my Goodreads for my book list if you need one (in my siggy), but I love horror/scary books! And I'll do either format; I read on my kindle/phone a lot, but I also have a huge pile of real books. Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders? wax tarts!! I'm not a huge fan of too much pumpkin/cinnamon scented things, but most bakery/fruity items work well in my home. And YES to the wax tarts burner! I love adorable burners. I have about 5 or 6 right now but no halloween ones. are you interested in crafting materials? This question is super specific for me; it depends on what I'm working on. Current project involves origami stars, origami cranes and anything on my pinterest craft list I'll try eventually. Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have? I am a gamer of course. ~~ Kingdom hearts I'm going through again, doing Diabolo 3 run throughs for when I need to murder, and town of salem when I need to think and also be frustrated by 12 year olds. If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? I have a steam wishlist. i believe my username is Dracosilverwolf there too. What rares are you dying to try??? Goldenrod crab spider? Is that a rare??? I also would love to have a decant of Lucielle sharp (I don't think i'll like her, hence the need for a decant like a tester), I'd love to take a sniff of OLLA eve one day, but she's another I just want to sniff and probs won't be crazy over. That's about it. Comic books and graphic novels: Yes?? Manga and manwha too. Disney? Yes??? And what about Harry Potter related items? of course!! Slytherin please ~~ 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)? Um. . . I'll double check inventory, but I think I'm open to everything but more dogs (and that's a decision by the township not by me). What kinds of art/art medium do you most enjoy, or would you most like to receive, in the context of this swap? This is another one I feel like I've answered before? Nevertheless; fabric is always welcome? I like art prints too, no specific kind or medium its in. Can i write a big IDK for this one? I'm in The Netherlands. Is there anything from The Netherlands/Europe that you're interested in? Kinder eggs! Kinder products in general, but I love getting the eggs. <3 Wax Melts: I love wax melts! supertarts is my top choice, with scarlet raine, candy panda and rosegirls as close seconds. How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy! I like the leafy and chevron. I like thick fluffy scarves that have interesting designs most of the time> Something I can nestle into. Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? Nah. Like booze? What kinds? Good dark rum from the islands so I can make some Caribbean Rum cake. Like Wine? What kinds? As sweet as candy wines. The more like grape juice the better. Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors! Yes!!! Long lovely ones are amazing. I'd love a pair of rainbow hair falls! I have aqua ones already, so anything not aqua is perfect. For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies? I watch things whenever I feel like it haha. I don't really have a time of year for them. The only thing I try to watch every Halloween (or at least this time of year) is Nightmare before Christmas and the entire Harry Potter series. Scary movies I watch whenever but there's never been one I've watched more than once. Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? 3 puppers who love squeaky toys! No treats please (I'm a strict momma! And we make our own treats lol.) Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? I'll just list it here; Deathly delights, pumpkin number 14, number 16, number 1, number 4, number 9, Hallowcats, boogieman, vampire vanilla bat, Ichabod, bloody kashmir red velvet cake, bastet amber pear champagne, Ozymandias crystalline champagne, black cherry muscadine, white zifandel, mrelot and cabernet sauvignon. I can always do with a backup of moonstone too. Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? The puppers I'm good on for now, but as for Fatherhood. . .: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, A Cute Kid, Like Father like Daughter, The pillory and maybe zip line? Focus on like father, like daughter and a cute kid. Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type? No thank you. Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year? I live near a Trader Joe's and I'm still interested in their goodies. Do you have use for warm handknitted scarf, hat and/or mittens? yes!! Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? I think I answered this before. . .? I like spatulas, whisks and things like that. Good wooden spoons. Just bought a new knife set so those are good. I can't think of any ingredients right now. I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? I'm there all the time so no thanks. What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice. *panics* Some sort of cute halloween themed squeaky thing for the pups?! Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? Nah! I overdosed on those this year haha. *Flashes sheets of stamps* I'm good. I'm moving on to sharks right now. I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so! I'm not a huge fan of lavender, but my mom is! So if you do get anything lavender it'd be an awesome present for her. Are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? I'm actually not all that into divination I've never been any good at it! I wouldn't mind a book to see more information on it though-- I have several well loved tarot decks right now. Would my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? That I'd be super interested in! Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? Nope! I like crystals because I'm a huge gem and rock nerd, but that doesn't count. Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? Hm I'm semi tempted by the soaps, but I'd rather have the candles to be honest. Apple fest, monster melon and once bitten all sound divine from the halloween update. Almond vanilla sounds to DIE for and I might need about a hundred of these. Oatmeal milk and honey, Raspberry beret, and sugar cane sunset all sound super good too. EDIT: JUST REALIZED THE PRICE OF THESE. SOAP IS GOOD. SOAP IS SUPER GOOD. PLEASE DON'T BUY ME A CANDLE. Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? Anklet for length (normally) but I like knee high ones when I'm being fancy ~~ I'll wear any fiber! I adore those giant super fluffy socks that keep your toes roasty toasty in the winter time. I get cold feet. https://www.sockittome.com/women/stretch-it.html THIS WEBSITE IS DANGEROUS. I need all of these socks if they fit my calves. (I immediately starting shopping here STOP ME.) Would you be open to previously-loved books? I think I answered this somewhere before. ..? But yes! Gently worn books are the best for reading, and a little less gently worn books for crafting are always welcome in my house. What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? Of course! I sometimes don't use much of a scent so a partial bottle is always welcome. (And i can always find more if I really fall in love.) So what are your favorite fandoms? You're opening a HUGE can of worms here. This might have to be updated periodically as I look over my stuff haha. Any fandom related questions can be sent my way though! So just because it's not on my list doesn't mean I don't like it... Just means I might not have thought of it. As for items from my fandom I'll take about anything except phone cases. I'm picky about my case and always will choose safety over fashion for it. Dr. Who, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Sherlock, Hannibal, Stranger Things, Merlin (BBC), Game of Thrones, (Anime and Manga considered fandoms?? If so this list will be about 100x longer), MLP, Terry Goodman's Sword of Truth series (just the books not the show), Lord of the Rings, Doctor Horrible, Pokemon, X-files, DISNEY, Orphan black, marvel (not a huge DC fan in general but do like things like WW), ((((TO BE UPDATED)))) Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com YES I love thinkgeek! I really will be pleased with almost anything from there haha. I don't have a wishlist right now though. 1. Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? Nooooo??? Not sure lol. 2. Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...) Can't think of anything right now! I'll come back to this one if I think of anything. 3. If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. Gothic victorian eclectic medical nerd with librarian and geek tendencies? I think that works. Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? All of the above! Especially a crafting apron. I'm always losing things when I'm sewing so having an apron might make things easier on me haha. BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? And I'm gonna have to say that might be too creepy for me. I'm not good with collecting things with human faces. (skulls are a totally different story, but technically they don't have a face, so. . . . ) Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to? If you have any cool playbills that I might like send them on to me! Otherwise I'm pretty set on my broadway merch. Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? No thank you! I think I'll be set after NY haha. Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)? there's some cool things here! The sling bag is super cute. - Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items. I am not sure! I don't go shopping too often so I ignore a lot of stores that I like. I guess it's dependent on the store?? I'm not sure. ;o; Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get! Honestly this question is dependent on mood haha. I love anything taxidermy and creepy, skulls and things (Which I've found at art and craft shows!). Also anything dragon flavored is nice. I love handmade bags, but they have to be big, last a while and long enough to go over my shoulder. See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc? Everything sounds so good! I always get excited when patients give us See's as a thank you hahah. Are any witchees into coloring books? YES ALL of them. I have a bunch but I'm always looking for more. is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)? I was gonna say nah. .. but everything on this site is SO CUTE. I want it all haha. That ladle set is to die for omg. Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm Yes those look delicious! I always love some good apple cider ~~ do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above? I very rarely take baths! I do like oils and sugar scrubs. I do like bath bombs to watch them fizz so like my yearly bath I'll throw one in. Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? I do like B&BW! My favorite from them are their foaming hand soaps and regular hand soaps. I can't get enough of the amahhhzing halloween scents and bottles, so anything Halloween is a go in my world! I use the pocketbacs *sometimes*, but not that often since the time I need them is at work and I can't use anything strong scented at work! do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need? I have these cards everywhere! But I could always use more since I use them for everything. What I really love are the vinyl stickers that sometimes comes in packages -- I like to stick them on my car. Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous:https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ So apparently this has nudity and my work has flagged me LOL. Oh well, I'm sure I'll love anything so I'm just gonna wing it and say yes! Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? Wolves, foxes, HYENAS, any bird of prey and DOGS for animals. (ETA: OCTOPUS!) DRAGONS. DRAGONS, and more dragons for mythological creatures. Though i will accept griffins, wyverns (though not super happily for this one), chimera (think Greek origin), were-anything, dark fae, kraken (the kraken? Multiple kraken?! Am I going by video game lore or original?!), unicorns, did I mention dragons? Actually mostly any animal hybrid out there I'll enjoy, though not so much if they have a human aspect (Sphinx and harpies being an exception to this rule). would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!) No thank you! Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)? I'm interested in both, especially because of the meaning behind them. Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment? At work, I sometimes get access to things like plastic free food containers, unpaper towels, beeswax food wrap, etc. for free. If that's something you could use (for your or your witchee), let me know. I'm not crazy into it, but I do like these sort of things! I'm trying to lessen my carbon footprint a little bit every year. Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson YES TO ALL THE THINGS. Does anything catch your eye from Ten Thousand Villages? (http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/clearance?dir=asc&order=price) I was checking out the clearance and there's so many cute things there. Would you be into receiving hand made (crocheted, sewn, or duct tape, in my case, depending on the item) disclothes? Scarf/shawl? Hat? Bag? Anything? Anything! Just not shirts/pants skirts etc. But anything nice and snuggly warm for the winter I'll be happy to take. I just love scarves and shawls. <3 Do you collect anything from SBUX like City Mugs, City Mug ornaments, City Cards, or Bearistas? If so, which do you need/want? Or would you like a City Mug or an ornament for fun? I like travel mugs the most because with 3 dogs with whappy tails things tend to fall easily. My favorite is the one with a built in steeper from teavana (since that's sort of sbux related??), or the 20 oz travel mugs from Contigo. They're the easiest to drink out of and keeps things hot forEVER. Next question--anybody want homemade fudge? I can do chocolate with or without nuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch YES TO THIS. ALL THE FLAVORS. I'm not allergic to anything, just saying~~ do you like spicy foods? I do at times! Those look DELICIOUS. what would you like from the Weenies updatus giganticus??? I haven't even had a chance to look at that yet! I'll update my wishlist when I get the chance haha. Still need to try motherhood whenever I get my decants. I can tell you right now none of the dead leaves. Witchees, do you want anything specifically from this page? http://iceweasel.net/switchwitch/ THE MITTS!!! AHHHHH!!! And the unicorns!

    Cherokee Rose Single Note

    In Bottle: Sweet, dusty pink rose. It's a lovely light floral note, no green to my nose, but it's so gentle and sad. Out of Bottle: Same as in the bottle! It takes on a slightly soapy, powdery edge, but I enjoy that so no problem for me. Dry: Really pleasant light rose scent. This feels like I could wear this all over me every day and it wouldn't become too overwhelming. Still a little powdery/soapy, but it basically smells like a clean lovely rose scent. There's a hint of something woody underneath too, very faint and barely there but it rounds out the rose well. I think this might have been the sad note I smelled before. Reminds me of dried roses hanging on the wall in the sunlight somewhere, the room warm but dusty and the roses forgotten. A fond memory from long ago.

    Pumpkin Sour Beans

    Woah I love this one so much. Wet: Pumpkin spice, actual pumpkin (smells candied to me!) and that sour sugar that you find at the bottom of a bag of sour candies. Dry: That pumpkin spice is still there and that sour sugar smell has faded (darn) but I still catch whiffs here and there. It's not a strong scent, but it is delicious. I can see this being fun to wear and then locket too so that I get more of that sour candy smell which I absolutely adore! I'm so surprised this one isn't more popular!
  4. Dracosilverwolf

    GC recs from the past 1-2 years

    Mine are Snake oil, Dorian, dragon's blood, lemon scented sticky bat, dragons milk and Chokecherry honey. I do go back and forth a little. Definitely look into the Carnival! I adore boomslang, Mme. Moriarty and theodosius the legerdemain!
  5. Updated 11/8/17 These are in order form when they were posted in the group! If it's too weird let me know and I'll switch it around. Are you coveting anything currently available from Haus of Gloi? I'm looking at the sugar scrubs! Anything in Egnoggin', mama's porridge, turkish delight, and winter divinity sound so amazing from the yule drop. Also will take the above in lip balms and I'm looking at the candles too! Are you coveting anything from the Paintbox Soapworks update that just happened? Anything foodie in their scrubs. Are you coveting anything from Cocoa Pink? I'm cocoa pink'd out right now haha. I mean I'll take anything foodie, but I've ordered a lot from them recently. Do you have feelings about fruitcake? We're talking whiskey soaked homemade fruitcake, not a brick in a festive tin? YESSSSS. FRUITCAKE ME. Any strong nail polish and/or makeup preferences? Anything super pretty and bright for the nail polish, I'll wear just about anything in this realm. I kind of only wear glitter (like the loose glitter) and lipstick for the make up section! I mean I keep my skin clean, but make up? ehhhhhhh. *lazy* How do you feel about pomanders? I didn't know what these were! They're SO cute so yes! How do you feel about savor soaps? https://www.etsy.com/shop/savor A big YES to all of this! Anything sweet foodie -- I'll try anything from here. I always try a store once haha. Or Perfectly Posh? http://www.perfectly.../?cgid=products Nothing really FLIES out at me, but! I also won't say no to them either. There's some intriguing stuff on here, but it's kind of overwhelming to my sleep deprived self. Favorite animals? Wolves! Foxes! Ravens! Dogs! (Yes they need the exclamation point behind each of them). Weird question, but it's on my mind: Do you have a strong preference for consumables (soaps, candles, food, etc.) over other stuff? I don't really have any preference! I enjoy noms during the holiday season Would you be interested in one of the Colorpop pallets? If so, which one would you LOVE to have? Anything else from Colorpop? https://colourpop.co...=manual&filter= The pony palette is adorable! Nothing else is really catching my eye right now though. Would you like any holiday music? if so, do you prefer a CD or MP3? Right now I prefer MP3s! I don't really listen to too much holiday music, but I don't mind listening to it. I go through spotify for everything now though! Do you like toffee or fudge? BOTH. Are you interested in anything from my etsy shop? https://www.etsy.com...winklentwilight (bags, stuffies, hats, fingerless mitts, lefse cozies...) I love all of your stuff, Miss Shari! Especially the fingerless mitts. I hate having my fingers trapped. What kind of hot drinks do you like, and if tea or coffee or cocoa or cider or alcohol, give specifics? Sweet teas (like super fruity teas), I don't like the herbal teas at all or anything moderately bitter. Same idea for cider and alcohol nothing super bitter, as sweet as it can come. Cocoa is a love every time. And I hate coffee. What kind of candles do you like, scent, etc? I'm not a HUGE fan of candles, so please don't get me too many! but I like the foodie ones ~~ Mixes or seasonings for the kitchen? Mmmm, surprise me? I'll use it if I get it, but nothing comes to mind right now. What is something new in your life that you wish you had more "things" for? o_o Time?! Nah, my projects vary so much so it's hard to predict. 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? All of these sound AMAZING. Please send them all my way even if you're not my person haha. Do you have a strong preference for numbered packages vs randomly picking with maybe a few hints along the way? I like numbered packages! I don't mind random, but numbered packages give me a sense of direction and hopefully I won't spoil anything along the way haha. Are you jonesing for any particular BPAL right now? Anything you are just dying to try, even just a sniffie? Nothing in particular that isn't already on my wishlist. Anything foodie! Blackcurrant sufganiyot and frostbitten dorian are ones that I'm keeping my eye on for reviews though. How do you feel about the following flavors/ingredients: Coconut? anything in coconut! Mint? I'm not a huge mint fan, but anything choco-mint can't go wrong. Lavender? ehhhhhhhhhh. Rosewater? Second one for the ehhhhhhh group, but not as eh as lavender if that makes sense. Cardamom? I have no strong feelings for or against cardamom. Candied citrus peel/marmalade? Yes please! I love the citrus everything. Anything to absolutely avoid? Anise. Bleck. Would you like anything crafted for the storage or transport of the BPAL? (Travel imp containers, boxes for 5mls, bottle cozy, etc.) If so, do you prefer them to be plain or decorated? If decorated, are there any motifs or art that you'd particularly like? I would love one! Decorated would be best, and anything from my favorite animals or maybe a skull? Gothic! Keep going for my 2016 answers! I'll leave them here in case they help anyone. <3 Updated: 11/23/16 I love crocheting, it's my favorite hobby. Can I make you a scarf/cowl/sweater/lap blanket to keep you wintery-warm!? I adore crochet and handmade items! My favorite would definitely be a scarf/cowl or a lap blanket; my dogs tend to ruin sweaters with their rough paws and nails. How do you feel about knit socks? (Plain stockinette, lacework, cables, etc). Are there any other hand knit items you'd especially like? (Mittens, fingerless gloves, hats, etc). I actually hate knit socks! I can never wear them for more than 5 minutes. Though everything else is fair game. How do you feel about amigurumi (i.e. little crochet toys), either characters from a fandom, wee animals, or as decorations? AMIGURUMI!! ALL OF THESE!! I am TERRIBLE at making these, but I would love to collect them! And yes fandom based would be AWESOME! (Pokémon, adventure time, nightmare before Christmas, doctor who and so on? YES!) What kind of snacks do you like? Does dried fruit or crunchy dried vegetables sound appealing? Do you like (raw) honey? Jerky? Jam? What sort of local products do you like to receive as gifts? If you're familiar with products in the Pacific Northwest, is there anything specific you'd like to try? They all sound appealing! I've got no food allergies, so I will try anything at least once. * I'm unhelpful* If there's one place you could go in the world, where and why? I've always wanted to go to Japan! I think it'd be amazing to go there, do the tourist thing of exploring the sites, squealing over anime and just learning history and a little of the language would be amazing. Also South Korea is super appealing; I'm a recent re-convert into the Kpop scene so I'm eating it all up right now and a friend of mine would love for me to go with her one year. Maybe?! On the other hand I also have always wanted to go to Scottland/ Ireland/ England. I think it'd be wonderful to do a month long tour of all the cities, go shopping and just zip around and (again) learn about the local history and customs! I know I was only supposed to do ONE but there's so much of the world that I haven't seen that it's way too hard to choose just one! What sort of dollar store items do you always get a kick out of? Dollar stores! I always love going to see what new trinkets they have, nothing in particular. I definitely use the dog toys they have there; I don't feel as bad when my beasts destroy them. Do you like to receive plants or gardening stuff? Do you grow plants? What's your favourite flower, if you have one? I'm a plant murderer but I adore plants; I tend to stick to hardier things such as succulents. They seem to be okay with my neglect. My favorite flower is the rose, but I've killed so many I don't want to grow them anymore! I also love venus fly traps, but not *quite* a flower. OH! And Birds of paradise! Literally my favorite flower in the entire world; they're not very smelly but they're gorgeous. Favourite flowers to look at touch: Birds of paradise! I always take a ton of pictures when I pass them at longwood. Favourite flowers to sniff: Jasmine, roses, cherry blossoms, angel's trumpets and sometimes daffodils. If you had a custom perfume/beauty/bath product made for you, what would it be and what would the scent description look like? (everything from prose to the specific selection of notes) A custom blend would probably be a different, sweeter version that involves Dragon's blood in some way. I would like maybe a Smaug based perfume too! that would be AMAZING. (like of perfumes based on dragons from old books; the most famous ones!) I love drawing! Either fanart chibis on the tablet or portrait work in graphite pencil... but it's been a while..so I'd love to use this as an excuse to draw something for you! If you could commission an art piece, would you choose traditional or digital artwork- and what would it be of? Most likely traditional of mythological creatures! Or maybe animal chibis?! I love hanging pictures of animals everywhere. (My future fursona will be a Wolf/Dragon hybrid if you want to have fun with that one.) what kind of collector are you? And do you have a log or a list somewhere away from the forum of the things you love, hate or already own? I collect randomly. I don't really complete collections unless it's only a few items I need to collect. Or if it's a book series I can see myself reading over and over again in the future. If I don't feel like I'm going to reread it then I normally don't buy it as a rule. (But its happened where I've ignored this rule). See my pinterest, facebook and goodreads for ideas on what I like. See below for pinterest, I'll be posting my goodreads on my sig. https://www.pinteres...racosilverwolf/ When it comes to makeup, what is your coloring? Fair, dark? Sensitive skin? Eye color? Hair color? Style....funky, natural? Any additional makeup info? I'm . .. medium tone? The only think I really use is special effects make-up, eye shadow and lipstick. FUNKY. As funktastic as possible. Is there any craft or hobby that you are interested in trying? I'm open to a lot of things! Try me! Or see my pinterest link above for ideas. Would anyone mind bath and body works items? Such as hand sanitizer, lotion, candles, car scents or soap? I like it! Especially the hand sanitizers-- i use them at work. Any Lush showergel (or other product) you'd like to try? I love me some Lush! Currently have a GIANT bottle of happy hippie so I'm good on that. Do you like licorice or would you like to try it? Would you prefer salt or sweet? Sorry I can't stand licorice. I live in The Netherlands but I will visit England soon and might pay a visit to Germany. Anything special from here that you'd like to try? Oooh! Anything interesting! BPAL wishlist updated? None created so far, but I'm going to try to create one soon! Do you like office supplies like pens, pencils, highlighters, sticky notes, etc? Yes! But stick to black ink for pens. I can't really use any other color. How do you feel about spicy, cheesy, or sour snacks? Ooh any snacks are good! Maybe not something super spicy, but light spice is good. (Can't handle the spice!) Would you like any cook-able mixes like for soup or baked goods, cooking ingredients like spices, sugars, salts, oils, or cooking gadgets? Sure! Again, I'm open to anything. The stuff I have I use through it so It doesn't matter if I have extra. Candles, wax melts, or incense - yea or nay? Yea to all three. I don't really use candles that much so I'm not *super* interested, but I don't mind getting them. How do you feel about sweeteners? Do you prefer sugar, stevia, sucralose, etc.? Anything in particular to avoid? Regular sugar is fine. I'm sensitive to the fake stuff. Would you be interested in: - Dried honeycrisp apples YES!! - Applesauce (with red hots for sweetness and cinnamon) Yes? I'm intrigued by the red hots. - Rose petal liqueur Oooh sounds good! - Blackberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, or Peach Jam All of these! - Baked or homemade goods (rum balls, spritz cookies, fudge cranberry bliss bars, chocolate topped toffee, zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, princess buttercups, chex mixes, trail mixes, etc.) Feel free to request a certain type of favorite thing you like. I have a food handlers license and I will make sure everything is very sterile, I am ultra virgo about cleanliness. I will avoid allergens like the plague if you are allergic to certain things. I can do gluten free baked things and/or we could do sugar free if that is a must. Ooh I'm game for anything in this list. I have no food allergies so go for it. - handsewn project bags or makeup bags? We do different sizes, some with zippers, some with draw strings. I can get all kinds of fandom type fabric like Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Nightmare Before Christmas, Hello Kitty, Harry Potter, My Little Pony, Star Wars, Mario Brothers, etc. I have some glittery bats, skulls, etc. too. If you're interested, what size would you like and would you prefer drawstring or zipper? What colors/theme? (most things that are on jo-anns web site, we can get locally.) Surprise me! I have no preference. - yarn, roving, batts, fiber? I have a LOT of really nice "farty" or "snobby" yarn in semi-solids, self striping, and gradients. Or I can make batts with our drum carder. I have roving and wool too if you spin. Or I have some handspun yarn in different colors/weights as well. Oooh?? Sounds interesting! - any cross stitch items like a small wall hanging or bookmark? I'm learning cross stitch and might be able to get a project done. I'm hip with inappropriate phrases... Book marks! Ahh! - if you said you'd want a knitted item, are there any particular favorite patterns you'd like - pinterest? ravelry bundle? How about favorite colors for whatever you'd like? See my pinterest link above If you said you liked candles/incense/etc., what are your favorite scents for such things? I really like sweet scents for melts and candles, dragons blood for incense are my FAVORITES. But I won't say no to anything else. Do you have any interest in Shakespearean swag (insult mugs, play themed lip balms, oodles of other possibilities) or general performing arts related goodies? If it's related to musicals I'll be ALL OVER those things. What is your favorite Christmas story - be it book, movie, cartoon - and if there are various versions, which is your favorite? Nightmare Before Christmas! Do you have a preference for numbered packages or random selection? I have no preference. Do you have any external wishlists, Goodreads, or anything else that you might not have listed in your survey? I'll be posting my info momentarily in my signature. For books that are part of a series, do you have a strong preference for whether you receive them in order, assuming that any overarching plot is reasonably easy to pick up on and the main story is self contained? MUST BE IN ORDER!! I get upset when I read them out of order, or even if I TRY to read them out of order. Do you have a Trader Joe's near you? If not, would you want some of their famous delicious treats? (Cookie butter - original or pumpkin spice!, sweet plantain chips, chocolate covered potato chips, etc) I have one about 5 minutes away from my house. I love their goodies, so I wouldn't say no to them. What's your shoesize? Would you like to receive socks? US 9-9.5, and I love some socks. Do you like Steampunk? Would you be interested in any jewelry inspired by steampunk? Yes x1000! I'm in the process of designing an outfit, so if it goes along with BPTP's clocket, all the better. Christmas decor? I love christmassy stuff! My favorite type of ornament are those based off of disney characters or animals. Jewellery? Of course! I dislike rings because I always lose them, but anything else i adore. Are you currently ISO any BPAL new or otherwise? What are your top 10 scents? See my wishlist for any ISOs! And top ten is HARD. I'm going to split them into GC, LEs and BPTP. (they are in no particular order, just whenever I think of them). GC: Dorian Dragon's Blood Dragon's Milk Snake Oil Bon Vivant Baobhan Sith Chokecherry Honey Bliss Lemon Scented Sticky Bat Sherlock Holmes D/C'd GC: Black Opal Antique Lace LE: Bitches Love Unicorns Vamp Goth Gothabilly Thomas Sharpe Theodosius the legerdemain Pip Velvet Pink Kitty King Mandarin SN Sanguinem Menstruum Snake Charmer Res. BPTP: Pink Wig Spray Dorian HG Snake Charmer HG Peach Pulped Frankincense HG Peach and strawberry pulp B.O. Snake Oil HG / B.O. Boo HG Blueberry Cream Pie HG/ Atmos Chastity with the Unicorn HG Sharing the Cake HG Velvet Pink Kitty Hg (Shhh, I know that's 11, I just can't decide) Black Friday will be a thing during this swap, anything you might want that will be on awesome sale? I'm not sure?! I need to look at flyers! Do you like to cook and would you be interested in cookbooks? If so, what kind? I don't have much time to cook, but I ADORE cooking when I can. Asian style cookbooks are always welcome, maybe some healthier ones? (Like lets stay away from the Guy Fieri cookbooks). Do you like games (board/card), and if so what kind and for how many players? I can always do with a pack of playing cards with a fun design on the back. Cards against humanity? Things like that. If you have a Goodreads "to read" list, are those mostly books that you do not have and would like copies of, or are those mostly books that you already have piled on your shelves/lurking in your e-reader? Mine are all things I've picked up from Goodreads itself, so 99.9% of them are ones I don't have! If you're my snow angel, you can get a friend to PM me any book questions! I am NOT picky though. If you said you liked candles/melts/incense/etc., what are your favorite scents for such things? Foodie! All foodie melts! I'm new to Supertarts but I'm loving looking at almost all of their clams. So lovely. Incense I can't do because people in my household are allergic and candles I can't be trusted with. Do you have a wood-burning fireplace or fire pit, and if so would you like handmade firestarters or scenting bundles to throw on it? (think bundles of apple wood chips and cinnamon bark, or little wax/herb/paper bundles with a wick) Woah that's so cool! Definitely! I have both fireplace and a fire pit. You mentioned scarves in your questionnaire. Are you referring to a chunky thick keep-me-warm-in-a-snowstorm scarf, or a light and lacy could-be-warm-if-I-wound-it-a-hundred-times scarf? Both, either?! Depends on my outfit. Would you like to receive a photography print? My pictures are mainly of animals or landscapes. What would you prefer? Any favourite animals you'd like to receive a picture of? Would you also like to receive postcards? You can view some of my pictures on http://www.by-ellen.com Wow how beautiful! I would love them. I have pictures and posters packed on my walls, but I always rotate. What are your most wanted BPAL's? Ahahaha. That's a lot; Chokecherry Honey** Rivet Goth* Cake Smash** The Vine** Blood Popsicle* Wezwanie* Red Lace Aizen Myoo ** The Phantom Calliope * The Harp of Cnoc Ichosgar * Picture Book and Pleasure Toys * Slippery Poppy Ticture Crypt Queen Titania Menacing Ionosperic Research Instrument Milk Chocolate and Matcha Green Tea Ganache Truffle Eight Views of Actors in their Dressing Rooms Silver Phoenix Philomneides Lilith * Snow Bunny The Bride* Midwinter’s Eve ** Nahemoth * Sticky Eyeballs and Floppy Entrails Strawberry Sufganiyot *** Venus Verticordia Peach IX* Flowers cleave apart* There is a garden in her face* Peach VIII ** Lustration (Panacea) Under the Mosquito Netting Tiki King*** Tiki Queen *** * denotes desire, and if there's anything foodie, jasmine-y or generally floral. Honestly I'll try anything at least once. 1) Thinking about your package arriving and unwrapping, would you prefer more foody items or more non-foody things? I'd like a mix, but I have no real preference. I won't be disappointed if I get more of one than the other. 2) Name a handful of things you would LOVE to see in your 12 Days gifts! New scents, tarts and things! does NOT have to be BPAL, but I love trying new things and expanding my scent profile. Other than that I'd be thrilled with whatever my snow flake picks up for me. If I were go get my shit together to actually bake before December 7, would you have any interest in fruitcake? Yes! As long as it's home baked, it's LOVELY. If I were still feeling the alcoholic spirit and decided to make boozy chocolate balls of some sort, do you have a preference for bourbon, rum or Irish whiskey? Ooh! I prefer rum but I'll be willing to eat any.

    Spooky Hair Gloss

    So I'll be the first to admit that I'm mega foodie when it comes to my BPAL choices and I was totally excited to try this. When I sniff the bottle definitely just a blast of MINT! It makes me think of the rampant mint plants that are growing everywhere, with a splash of boozy rummy goodness underneath. For me the mint drowns out everything else. Mint is lovely, I rub mint leaves all over myself in the summer so I immediately spray it on. Unfortunately I morph into a giant, freshly squished stink bug. This mint has morphed into something monstrous and smelly and just *no* on me. Maybe it's my shampoo. Maybe it's my hair oils. All I can think now is *NO*. Being the trooper I am, I left it on and overnight it morphed into purely awesome coconut chocolate with excellent throw, which lasted until I took a shower, only a hint of the stink bug wafting by at random moments. Gonna have to pass this one on unfortunately.

    Serving Fish

    In the bottle: Definitely sweet pea but soft and gently floral with a sugar sweet tasty edge. The musk is there after a couple of sniffs, but it takes a bit to find it for me. Wet: The sweet pea is definitely much stronger. I lose all of the gentleness immediately and it's just all sweet pea. Dry: Super SWEET PEA is the only way I can describe it, though the musk definitely comes through a lot more dry; it makes the scent less light and sugary for me. After a couple of hours I actually had to take it off; my skin amped it way too much and ended up giving me a headache from how strong it was, even though I only did a tiny tab on both wrists. I'll give it one more chance before giving up on it though.
