FB34-B810-6-DDC-41-E0-89-C1-544-B17-FEEA E1409-A39-568-D-4127-9673-5-B872-F132-A0 105-C3878-9884-4-D07-A215-A31-DFAE3511-D It seems like a lot of shops’ Halloween lines have items related to the same standard fandoms, such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, Disney’s Haunted Mansion, Beetlejuice, Addams Family, etc. Do any of those (or other ones) particularly resonate with you? Not really........ How do you feel about atmospheric/novelty scents and novelty food items? Things like "new car candle" or "eyeball jawbreaker" or whatever. Fun! If you like tea, how do you want it delivered? Loose? Bags? Tiny little messenger pigeons (subject to availability)?

Would you prefer to receive ONE HUGE (more expensive) GIFT and 12 inexpensive ones, a few more expensive, or all about the same price? Dealers Choice! Yeah, I know this probably doesn't help, but honestly just try and have fun with it What are your fandoms, if any?

If so do you have a wish list or a list of ones you already have? Would you like a silk tarot bag? No, and yes. I have a very special tarot that a very dear friend designed and a silk bag would be awesome!! Do you like rocks/crystals? What colors / kinds? Would you like them with holes drilled (either as a pendant - you'd need to stick a bale in, or a bead?) I adore beads and crystals, especially semiprecious stones; my colors are golds and bronzes and reds, and then deep greens and blues. Drilled, beads, or to be heaped in a bowl, all work My mom has an etsy store - she makes bags. Do you love anything from it? We can also do box bags, draw string bags, dice bags, etc. and if you want a different type of material or a different fabric pattern, I'm open to links to specific things. (yes, we have harry potter things. We bought most of it before JKR showed herself to be a twat since we buy lots of bolts at the same time - yes, we have a whole room stuffed full of fabric.) Twi knows what I like from here.....and, I have stuff favorited from it in my Etsy. Easy peasy Let's say you want something knitted. What are you most interested in? (hat, fingerless mitts, scarf, shawl, cowl, infinity scarf, shawlette, gnome, doily, coffee mug cozy, talisman bag, dice bag, soap sack, washcloth (I have a pattern with the leviathan cross for bpal), amigurumi / toy, bracelet, cuff, necklace, other?)

Or put it on pinterest or something if you have that.) * What colors would you prefer said knitted object in? * Stripes, gradient, semi solid, variegated? * What type of yarn would you prefer? ("wool", BFL, merino, merino/silk, merino/silk/cashmere, merino/cashmere, just silk, just cashmere, tencel (non-animal, plant based), other? I also have non-dyed organic wool (mill spun) from our own sheep - finnsheep and shetland. The finnsheep is dark brown (sun bleached black sheep from Sarge and our two black ewes we can't tell apart so they're ewe 1 and ewe 2) or a lighter silvery beige (from freckles) and the shetland is white. (we just call her shetland. They're mom's sheep, she should have named them, lol.) Most of my stripy yarn is either merino or merino cashmere.) You can check out some of my finished projects on Ravelry if you like (click on the project for more photos) (I'll have to make a list of which items are available because I knit a lot of things and then just put them in a cabinet and gift or sell them.) I'm deazinn on Ravelry and have a ton of info on there. Feel free to stalk me, all the info you need is there. Seriously, info overload, have fun!! Are you interested in receiving any of the following homemade / home dried / home canned goodies? (just erase the ones you don't want when you answer to make it easy?) (see list in this post under spoiler because long) dried honeycrisps vanilla peach jam 8/15/21 How do you feel about oracle decks? Not for me Would you like witchy/ritual oils/sundries? Any limitations (e.g. deities you won't work with)? I'm not learned enough yet, so no thank you Is there anything you would like to try from the UK specifically? (e.g. Lush exclusives) I adore Thornton's Alpine bars, Cadbury's caramallow bars, and Liberty of London fabric Oh, and are you into astrology? Yes, I am; I am a Scorpio born on 11/09 What size shoe do you wear (inc wide/narrow, etc)? Youth or Big Kids size 4 Do you like/would you want to receive comic books? Any favorite genres or characters? Yes, I currently am lemming Firefly and the Anne Bonny comics. And later issues of The Accelerators. Poke me if you need issue numbers Would you like a palm stone, or anything else, from Haute Macabre? No, thank you What's your favorite flower(s)? Carnations, and Sterling Silver roses What's you favorite woodland creature? Moose are my absolute favorites, but I pretty much love all critters; deer and fox are especially fascinating as are birds of all types. But moose are my jam Do you prefer receiving a big box with all of your goodies, or is it okay if one or two things are shipped directly to you separately (with notice!!) for customs/shipping cost purposes (i.e. if there's something customs might not allow in from the States that can be shipped from within your country)? Whatever's easiest for you! Would you like a fabric face mask? If so, do you prefer a dome shape or a pleated shape? Yes! Either shape is fine, I wear both depending on the day I have a literal stockpile of skincare products. Can I interest you in cleanser, sheet masks, moisturizer, sample things etc etc.? Or a general pampering package? What is your skin type? No, thank you Anything from here? ChocolateStorybook on Etsy No I have been enjoying the incense from here hand-dipped incense sticks | Hexennacht and here Hand-dipped incense sticks | Mr. Hex (mr-hex.com) Any thing interesting from either site? I don't burn incense as my husband is allergic. Thanks 8/16/21 Would you like some delicious coffee? If so, do you prefer whole bean or ground? If ground, what grind? Also, light or dark roast? Flavor preferences? Yes, but I'm picky. I like ground, to go in a kcup. Dark or medium roast, with flavors of chocolate, vanilla, or cinnamon. My very most favorite coffee ever has all three flavors. A 1/4 lb is plenty cause I don't drink coffee often 8/17/21 I may be going to the Renaissance Fair this weekend (if not this weekend then soon and multiple times), any Ren Faire goodies you may like? Local honey, embroidered ribbons, handspun yarn, cool tshirts (unisex large or womens 2X) I always go to my town's local Farmer's Market and they have booths selling things like candles, Gourmet Pickles, Flavored Oils and Vinegars, dog treats (like bones and animal feet), honey, and bath products. Would you like any of these things? Dog treats would be awesome, honey, and kosher dill pickles would be great! Do you have a preference for numbered packages for each night of the swap vs randomly selecting from unlabeled goodies? Again, dealers choice! If you didn't say much about your reading preferences in your survey but would be interested in receiving books, can you elaborate a bit? Amazon list and previous blog entries should cover it all Are you interested in cocktails, be it recipes, infusion kits, tools, supplies, specialty bitters? My husband would love it!! 8/18/21 Is there something that you definitely prefer to not receive in any category (anything to avoid if you hadn't/forgotten to mention)? dirty socks, half eaten food, skunk sprayed things?? Are there patterns/prints (more guidance than general Halloween/Autumn) you like for things or are you open to whatever I may find that speaks to me? Whatever speaks to you is fine! Any significant other or other special person? Like if I wanted to send you specialty cocoa for a date night, would that be OK? I am making up the cocoa part, but you get my drift. A date night offering would be awesome!! My husband and I have been together for 37 years and married 34 and we love to do special things together I would love to request folks to to put their wish list in this thread and link in their signature. I would love to decant from my oils if I have any my person is looking for! If you go to a computer my links are there in my signature. I'm going to figure out how to put them in a separate blog post If you happened to list some favorite fandoms earlier, would you also name your favorite character(s) from those fandoms? Ummmmm.....poke me if you really need this?? 8/19/21 Do you have an Amazon link? Can you post it?? In my signature if you are a knitter/crocheter, are you over on Ravelry? If so, what’s your user name there?? Yep, I'm deazinn over there as well 8/20/21 I make homemade fire ciders, would that be of interest? Non-alcoholic and they are quite fiery. Never heard of such a thing, but I'd love to try some! Are you interested in getting other BPAL items besides perfume, like hair gloss, bath oils or T-shirts? Yes!! I have the items I'd love in my wishlist in my signature link 8/21/21 So partner, would you be interested in a Frankenbag done in Halloween prints? Yes please Y'all with furbabies... Are there any food allergies/sensitivities or quirks to know about? She's a heavy chewer and allergic to chicken how do you feel about (ethically sourced) butterfly / moth art (in a jar or shadowbox) It would be beautiful and I'd be honored I may have preemptively picked out 2 Halloween-themed mugs with cute matching spoons, before I knew who my match was going to be! So I leave it to you: Bat, or Cat? Bat! 8/22/21 If you mentioned aversions to any common Halloween decor items (skeletons, witches, spiders, etc.), how encompassing is that? Specifically, is a "kid friendly" drawing of that same item on a piece of decor (like, a book cover or wrapping paper) still a preferred pass? Nope, that would be fine. It's just the realistic type spider stuff that freaks me out. I actually really love spider webs Would you be interested in receiving a never-used eyeshadow palette from Nororiously Morbid (gothy colors) and/or a never-used eyeshadow palette from Pretty Vulgar (romantic neutrals)? Yes, either would be awesome thank you 8/23/21 I live in Japan. Are you interested in anything specifically Japanese I could get for you here (doesn't necessarily have to be Halloween themed)? For example, are you a fan of the anime Demon Slayer and want merch? Are you interested in trying some fun kit-kat flavors? Do you need a new set of pretty chopsticks? I love and use fans; Small Starbucks items are fun; scraps of fabrics that are Japanese are awesome and I'd love to try and sew with some sometime; small batch gluten free soy sauce; chopsticks there is an excellent chance teeturtle will have a sale in time for this swap: anything (particularly tshirts or socks) that appeal? Sizes? Ummmm....sizes you have, surprise me? Haus of Gloi Fall Part 1 drops soon, anything here you like? https://www.hausofgloi.com/blogs/blog/fall-lineup-2021 Nope, I don't think so right now 8/24/21 Could you use a journal or sketchbook? No cause my husband would bean me. Have you SEEN my collection? Do you need BPAL storage? Imps? Bottles? I'm pretty good right now...... Do you wear socks? What kind? No show, ankle, knee high, over the knee? Fibers? I wear socks all the time. I'd really love a couple pair of heavy white cotton bobby socks. My favorite socks are bombas ankles socks, but they are kinda pricey. I wear size small. Going into winter I need the ankle socks though. Do you have a favorite candy(ies) [or prepacked individual snacks] that you wouldn't mind filling up your box as packing material? Or teas/coffee blends you'd enjoy? If you prefer none of this, that's fine too! It's so stinking hot here right now that I'm kinda scared anything chocolate (my favorite) would melt. I like snack size portions of peanuts and smoked almonds, sahale honey glazed almonds, sugar free jerky; I love teas of all kinds EXCEPT with a licorace, anise or earl grey/bergamot taste. I'm going down the Shore for a few days! Any treats you'd like from a cute beach town- salt water taffy? Fudge? Wrist fans? Tie-dye beach dress...? No taffy; I love fudge - chocolate, chocolate walnut or peanut butter; a tie dye beach dress would be awesome! Either in greys/purples or in autumns/greens How do you feel about fancy marshmallows?

No, thank you!! 8/27/21 I grow mugwort and it's harvest season. Would you like dried leaves for bathing or tea? Or a bound bundle for smoke cleansing? (Its said to be excellent for divination or lucid dreaming, but do not use if pregnant.) its also a digestive bitter and tastes great on chicken. Dried leaves for tea or cooking please!! I grow loads of other herbs and I'm drying them now. Any favorites you might like? Mint, basil, oregano, chives, lemon balm or others? Yes please, any you care to share! I grew a huge load of onions and garlic. Any interest? Again, yes please! Feathers? I have geese, ducks, peafowl, chickens and quail. So I collect their shed feathers and share them with people I like. While I would adore some peacock feathers, I'm still putting together my home from my move so, right now, sorry, no. I grew a boatload of Green Shiso this year and plan to make a shiso pesto with it. Would you like some? (Nut wise it has pistachios) Yes!! I also plan to experiment with infusing it in vodka. I'm planning a plain shiso infusion and a shiso citrus infusion. If they turn out would you like some? Yes to both please!

    2021 Summer Vacation Swap

    Are you interested in any games? We play cribbage, but we have played Cards Against Humanity and would love a deck of our own! No playing cards though, we have PLENTY of those! If you mentioned you liked bracelets or earrings to wear.... Bracelets: Do you have preferences for metal color/type or would you prefer hemp/leather? beaded? bangles? Wrist size? I actually have quite a bit of jewelry....the only things I'm really looking for is a good silver link bracelet for charms, and charms themselves. I would love to have a dragon charm and a zebra charm and a griffin charm in particular Earrings: Colors / Metal Type / Style / Piercing size? I have two piercings in the left ear and three in my right and will be getting my daith piercings soon. I can wear all types of metal. I'm really into huggy type hoops right now, and really long threaders Say you like or collect travel mugs: do you want them to have a city or state name? Ceramic, stainless, or is plastic ok? Size preference? (12oz, 14oz, etc.) No glass please, I am the superklutz. I prefer stainless over plastic, but will do plastic.

How do you feel about used books? I will love and cherish them! I know we talked about good/not-good scent notes in the original questionnaire.

Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? --> I love jams and syrups, and pickles on the dill/salty/spicy not bread and butter/sweet side. I'm actually not overly fond of lavender in my drinks, so that I'll pass. Either of the cherries, and anything with berries sounds yum!! Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round?

I have a few of her prints and the notebooks and they are quality! --> not really my style What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Anything specific? --> cute but not for me Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? --> gorgeous but I have too many polishes now.... I do pour painting/acrylic fluid art (with varying degrees of success, haha). Would you like a custom piece in colors of your choice (takes 3-4 weeks with curing, longer if you want it sealed, so it would arrive post-round if custom) or a piece already finished in my collection?

    Some swapping misc help!

    Okay....here's some lemmings of mine! Chocolate: milk, *dark milk*, dark, with almonds/hazlenuts, plain...yep, it's all good! I don't like white chocolate, or fruit (esp dislike raisins). I love caramels. I like crispies - but, I don't like much of the Cadbury European chocolate range....go figure! However, I love love love Ritter Sport milk chocolate with whole hazlenuts, and milk chocolate butter biscuits. I also just adore fudge....yummm....chocolate, chocolate walnut and peanut butter. I like Peanut M&M's, Snickers, Peppermint Patties....it's pretty much all good. I got treated with chocolates from www.burdickchocolate.com and I'm in love - especially with their mice and penguins! I've had and adore Vosges Barcelona Bar and Goji Bar, but the others don't do much for me, like I thought they might. I like Godiva, and adore Ghiradelli. Lindt makes a sea salt dark chocolate bar that is the bomb, as well as milk chocolate sea salt truffles. Tim Tams are for the win, and I prefer a liquidy caramel to a chewy one. Did I mention I like chocolate?? If you live near a Trader Joe's, I am seriously addicted to their dark chocolate coated nutty bites as well as their chocolate covered butterscotch caramels! I adore them, and my nearest TJ's is a 90 minute drive away!! I can also use a South African spice grinder as mine is all. I love their different spice grinders! My favorite non-chocolate candies are Smarties, Sweettarts, Spree, Pixie Stix and Swedish red fish. I don't chew gum. I'm a knitter, and I'm absolutely in love with this! I can always use yarn, especially the 100% cotton yarn like sugar n' cream, stitch markers, needle protectors..... For knitting I need 6/0 beads, preferably with an iridescent shine to them.... Books - I love books. I read pretty much anything in print. My wishlist on Paperbackswap.com is always updated, and I'd love to receive credits there - I'm 'deazinn' there as well - and pretty much everywhere on the web I also adore music - haven't started an Itunes wishlist yet, but I'll get there - in the meantime, I've listed some music/book/dvd wants on Amazon - link is in my signature. Agatha Blois Carnival Wax = I absolutely and totally adore 1965 and will devour any amount... I really like Wyrding Studio's hammered copper/bronze shawl pins I have many of Alicia's (E&A) pieces favorited in Etsy. I am currently in love with the leggings/tunic trend.....I would be in a medium *size 10* in leggings, and Walmart has some fleece lined ones right now in the Halloween and Fall prints pretty cheap! In tunics, I need a 1X or 2X, depending - I have a 40C bust and don't like skin tight tops. I love candles! Etailers are really welcome here...I've never ordered from any but Dark Candles. Love some of their scents, others are meh. I love Yankee Candles. I have tart warmers, and tarts are most welcome. I'd really love some unscented tarts, so I can mix oils into them. In the spring, I go citrusy and seaside scents. In the fall/winter I go apples and spices, strong evergreen/balsam, and creamy oatmeal and honey scents. Yankee Candle had a candle called Merry Marshmallow which was a vanilla sugar and marshmallow scent that I adored and would love to have tarts and/or candles in that scent if you can find some!! The Yankee ones are d/c but I've found some that are close........I also need a small pack, like 6, of unscented tea lights for my tea warmer. I adore Calvin and Hobbes, and have all of those books - tho' not the really expensive leather bound editions which contain all of the comics. I'd love to have a C&H mug or Tshirt, but they're hard to come by. I also love Karen from Will and Grace, watch Sex and the City - I am SO a Samantha, and adore Friends. I watch a lot of medical dramas, and would love some way to watch all the seasons of Code Black without having to subscribe to the stupid CBS pay per view. I own Season 1 of Veronica Mars, and Season 2 or 3 would be great! I also need Season 2 of Dollhouse....... I love tea, and drink a lot of it. All types, Red, Green, Black, herbal, you name it I'll drink it! Right now I am big time craving hibiscus tea, love the stuff in summer. I don't like anything with a licorace/anise taste (or smell) or Earl Grey/bergamot, but I do love fruits and cinnamon flavors. Got Golden Moon's Vanilla Mint loose tea and I LOVE it! Other personal favorites are Stash's Christmas Eve, and Celestial Seasoning's Nutcracker Sweet, and Candy Cane Lane. I do have quite a bit of tea right now. We also have a Keurig, so K-cups of any flavor are most welcome as well! I'd also welcome a large pottery tea pot, my largest one is only good for 2 ish cups. If you can pick up an electric teakettle somewhere that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I've wanted one for a while now and can't quite convince the hubs we need one, he says the Keurig is good enough.....um, no? I can also use well insulated tea caddys, one for my small Boden (I'll edit this with the oz size) and for any tea pot you may send along!!

    SW Fall 2017 Part #1

    9/12/17 Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ - the vanilla bean scrub bar tickles my fancy, as does the bearwalker beer soap What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images?

I also like the bats, spooky trees, birds..... 9/11/17 I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? I would adore a well made fabric fan, to use and not display. All wood or wood and cloth! Also, I collect the Starbucks mugs that are specific to cities, and I'd love a cell phone charm as I had one from a previous SW round that I adored, and it finally died....something cute, kawaii, sparkly...... How do you feel about nail wraps? I'm actually starting to really like them!!! if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? - would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? Oh, I love hand knits!! Thick chunky socks, a long drapy cowl, scarf, washclothes.....as long as the fiber is SOFT, it's fine. Please no 100% acrylic as my skin can't handle it, but a blend is fine If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? Need to think on this one..... If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? And, I also need to think on this one If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? Um....Dita Von Teese, Marilyn Monroe, and someone else fun and flirty! What a great time we would all have, right? 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. Oh, how I adore Alicia's creations. They are on my faves list on Etsy Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? Absolutely!!! If my witch would like to make me something, we can discuss via email further! I love homemade things!! Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? It's an odd request....but I used to use an eyelash tint - not a mascara. Clinique makes one that I haven't tried. I found Tarte's Tarteist lash paint and love it! I also like It Cosmetics tightlining black primer; it's the bomb for all those little lashes!! I don't really need any other makeup, the stash from my active days is still pretty full and I don't really wear a lot of makeup. Oh! Chanel discontinued their original Glossimers. The new formula is called Rouge Coco Gloss - Moisturizing Glossimer. It's not the same. I like the original. Any color. If you can get your hands on any without spending a fortune, that would totally rock! Testers are fine as well!!! ANY COLOR. I wear these night and day, truly. I'd also love a fun empty cushion foundation case. Mine is a blah white. I know there were really cool Disney ones, and Wonder Woman ones, that I missed. Oh! I'm taking an adult Ballet Barre class through May.....I'm wearing leggings and baggy tees. Some cool ballet tees would be awesome, I like a junior relaxed 2X or women's XL. A tulle skirt would be fun too, though I'm thick around the middle so I would need it to be pretty large in girth. 9/10/17 Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? Nope. Sticking to my knitting, reading, baking and cooking Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? I'm not sure? You are absolutely welcome to stalk me and see if you find something you could work with Do you like poetry? Yes. My absolute favorite is Merrit Malloy, and I don't have any of her works, and would love them. Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? Yes to all, though I don't have any repaints. I'd be worried they might get banged up around here. I do have some Funko's on my Amazon list though! Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? Yes. You can check with Miss Twilight, Dixiehellcat, and Skyelric as they can point you to yarn I adore, both costly and affordable ranges Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity?

No, sorry Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? --her Blackthorn HooDoo blend tea in Sun Bright sounds yum --Health Enchanted candle, any size, and number of them would be awesome Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)? --Sisterhood of the Moon!! ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/ --I have a ton of polishes, but boy did I fall head over heals for Ava! I really like Pink Mimosa too!! 9/8/17 Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. Yes, and my Etsy should have some great examples of what I like!! Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? --I adore Glissade in Black Marshmallow, it's a holy grail for me. - Or Haus of Gloi? --Not right now.... Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? --yes please! Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.)

I have very few bottles and imps, and they are pretty happy where they are. A small wood box for my bedside table for my nail oil, a place for my rings and lip gloss would be awesome though! Who is into K-Beauty (Korean beauty products like sheet masks) I'm just getting into this, and have a ton right now, so I'm probably pretty good??? - What are your faves if you are? - If you aren't would you like to try something? 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... 9/5/17 What are your feelings about Scooby Doo? I love Scooby Doo and the gang! How do you feel about indie makeup (read: loose eyeshadow, blush, highlighter)? I'm pretty well covered here I drink this stuff almost everyday would anyone else be interested in trying it out? https://www.criobru.com/ --I would love to try this!!! 9/4/17 Would you like one of the Halloween Teeturtle shirts? https://www.teeturtl...alloween?page=1 Yes please, I wear a women's relaxed 2X

    SW Fall 2016 Part 2

    Is there anything you would like to get from Japan? Um......everything?? Seriously, I would love some textiles like silks and embroidered stuff, I covet a new fan (like the ladies in the old days used, fabric over sticks) mightily, I'd die over a Starbucks Japan mug, I love Pocky, seaweed snacks......much more but that's what I think of off the top of my head..... My favorite shortbreads are very rich and crumbly ones, not hard and dried. I like plain, vanilla, and lemon Sock? I adore socks!! I can tell you I am moving away from shortie socks to crew length and knee highs. I just started working with/riding horses again, so a pair or two that are very heavily padded through the foot would be awesome, and can be worn on my motorcycle rides as well!! I have a Fitbit Alta, sized small, and I just had to order a new strap because my original one broke. I'd love additional straps; I covet mightily the blush leather one that is Fitbit branded, but it's spendy. Etsy has some fun ones, and I'm sure Amazon/Ebay have some too!!! Sorry about that darlin'.....when my old laptop died, I lost all of my old files. Trust me, it was a sad moment here when I realized that....... On Pinterest, I am the deazinn with the rainbow Zebra, the Zebra being the mascot of my rare orphan disease called Ehler Danlos Syndrome/hypermobility type. On Live Journal, I am dea:underscore;zinn because it hates me. On Instagram, I am zinndeanna because apparently I already made an account under deazinn, and lost it? And can't find the stinkin' password.... I am currently mostly on Facebook and Ravelry, though I will make a very concerted effort to keep up and answer questions here. Please feel free to poke me, or ask TwilightEyes, Coldie, or damn it the person who sent me the learn to knit kit and the dark snickers and the Dexter knitted lip balm cozy who's name I can't remember!!!!~ VoodooCatWoman it's so good to see you!!!! Okay, a couple of answers now: How do you feel about knitted stuff? Love, thanks!! Fancy? Plain? Either is fine with me What types of things do you like to wear? knitted shawls, small lap blankets, long long long scarves, especially woven scarves....really, anything! I do have two pair of knitted fingerless gloves that I wear a lot in the cold season. I'm into beer. How 'bout you? Nope, but I am really intrigued by Mead and would love some samples of different types, the sweeter the better. Same goes for wine, my favorites are ice wines, which I adore. Also wines that are partially fruit nectars. Styles? And booze? How do you feel about caramel? Love soft fluid caramels, chewy ones are really hard on my jaw. Same as gum. No go for my dislocating jaw, thanks!! Salt or no? either With chocolate or without? Is this a trick question? Chocolate!!!! Would you be interested in home made food items? Yes to all of the below..... - garlic dill pickles - blackberry jam - dried honey crisp apples - applesauce (with or without red hots) - elderberry syrup (with honey and apple cider vinegar - great for immune boosting) - honey from our bees - rose petal liquor (made with our own rose petals and everclear but diluted down a bit so it doesn't knock you over) - baked goods of your choice, what do you like or dislike? I really don't like fruit in my baked goods, except for cranberries. I love nuts of all kinds, and chocolate. Would you be interested in project bags/pouches? I love project bags, and really need a couple of larger ones for my never ending blankets....... And to go along with the previous knitting question... Are you allergic to any fiber or do you know what kind of yarn you prefer? (merino, merino cashmere, merino cashmere silk, 100% silk, 100% cashmere, merino nylon, BFL, BFL silk, etc. Or do you like acrylic?) All of the above. I especially adore angora yarn, but it's spendy and hard to find. I love silk, cashmere, alpaca. I don't like mohair. All kinds of wool are fine. I love knitting with cotton. Acrylic is okay if it's really soft.....there's a couple I like and I will find them and post them here if needed. I also bead my knitting, and can use 6/0 beads, preferably Japanese brands (they are the best) and I really like ones that glimmer, glitter and shine..... 9/14/16: What are you interested in from the recent BPAL and BPTP updates? (Lilith, Lunacy, etc.) I'll get back to this one..... Would you like hibiscus seeds? Yes!!

    SW Fall 2016 Part 1

    Witchee, would you like (would you wear?) a long wrap choker? here's a random image of one I found on google: https://cdn.shopify....pg?v=1472662396 The one I would make for you would be done with pretty glass and/or semi precious stone beads. I can do any colors you choose, and I can use mostly tiny seed beads or chunkier beads or a combination of the two. So...what say you??? I vote yes please!!!! I only like Chocolate Pocky.......not any of the other flavors. With or without nuts is fine! I also like low sodium jerkies.....started eating them as snacks with my finicky tummy!! The Hierophant meads sound good....but I'm with Twi. I don't like beer, or hops. My favorite wine in the world is Ice Wine, with a very fruity slightly sweet sangria being the second. Even rieslings can be too dry for me. Having said that, mead really intrigues me, and I'd love to try it. Just so my Witch knows, I'm very intrigued by the Halloween Atmo Spray THE ACTOR ICHUMURA MEETING A CAT GHOST ATMOSPHERE SPRAY. Yep, I can provide Twi's old address no problem, and I'm open to minioning her, and a couple of others! I have addresses for some of my GUSPers. Since we've lost Fabienne, if my witch can get their hands on: Girls Love Vanilla, Madame X or Gingerbread Whorehouse, I would be over the top excited!! I've never stored her perfumes, so I have no idea how they age. Anyone here know?? I got back from the doc's a little bit ago.....I apparently bruised my xiphoid process at the end of my sternum.....and, I have a sinus infection! Bleah!! Thank you so much my beloved Witchee for the ecard and the sentiment! I actually have brownies and fudge both coming now, from my knitter friends in Ravelry and also GUSP'ers on Facebook. I think I'm good. I also wanted to mention that I'm in a Tea Swap with my knitter group Ravelry, so please don't be sending me tea! I also still have some of my beloved apple Chai from last year. Oh! But, if it's out before the round ends, I do absolutely love the Stash Christmas Eve tea, and a box or two of that would be warmly appreciated. The mint in it helps my tummy, which is an added bonus, so I'm drinking a lot of it!!! Brownies, the fudge kind, would not be turned away I like flavor without a lot of heat.......the mild smoked chipotle and the smoked sweet cayenne sound really good. Nothing really over medium in the spice range as hubs is a super taster and can't handle any level of spice. BDSM/Erotica; sure, I'm up for anything? With my illnesses and wonky energy levels because of them and the meds I take, I'm really hit or miss in the bed, and as I'm pretty visual, that would be fun and spicy for me. I very much tend towards the submissive to my much more dominant husband. Weenies and NYCC scents.....I'm still pondering. Just got the holiday Lush catalog - some winners in there!!! I'd really love some thick warm soft socks....not slipper socks though, the jellies on the bottom wig me anymore. I wear a Youth 4 size shoe, so adult size socks tend to be kinda big on me unless they are specifically for the smaller women's sizes. I'm really into leggings right now, and they tell me that Walmart has some gorgeous fleece lined ones for under $8......I wear solid tops so pretty much any print on the bottom would work, and roses, skulls, sugar skulls, fall leaves would all work. I'm a solid 12 in pants right now, and don't want them skin tight. I have those already I adore the Bee Folks, and get their honey on a regular basis. I am on my last jar of Cranberry Honey and would love a jar or two! It's my very top favorite and I go through 6-7 jars a year on average.
