  1. Would you like any of Snag Tights’ Halloween offerings and if so, what size? In the US sizing I wear an F (NOT the short F). Skullz-Forbidden Fruit or Disco spider Do you prefer getting one or two really nice/more expensive things or several smaller/less expensive little things? Or do you have no preference? No real preference. Witchee, do you like tea? If so, what kind? Love tea, it runs in my veins. There’s a couple of tea wishlists in my sig file. Witchee, do you want anything? Shirts, mugs, postcards from Anarchist Seattle, Portland, or New York.... https://www.redbubble.com/people/litlnemo/shop?artistUserName=litlnemo I like the postcard, but am offended that Detroit is not on the list. Would you be interested in a gently-used tarot deck (or other oracle)? If so, toss out some styles you gravitate towards, cause I have SO MANY DECKS and I'd love to send one or more along! There’s an Art Nouveau deck I’ve almost bought myself a bunch of times. I'm waiting for one to ship from the UK that I backed on kickstarter - gorgeous watercolor paintings Are you interested in receiving a burned CD of music? If so, name of genres, artists, styles that you are into or would like more of to explore. Oh that would be fun. I play CDs when I’m in my studio. I’d love one with Celtic music – instrumental or not, If it’s in Gaelic, that’s cool. It’s more about the sound environment while I’m playing with fiber & art supplies. Or old jazz - say 1930-1950s. Also fun background sounds. Do you have an Amazon wishlist? If you do and you're ok with getting stuff from it, please share the link! It’s in my sig file Pumpkin/pumpkin spice – yay or nay? Yay in food/drinks but nay in other products (soaps, perfumes, etc.) or vice versa? What are your thoughts? I love pumpkin spice. I loved Pumpkin Spice before the PSL was a major thing. I love pumpkin too. Candy corn – love it or loathe it? Or just don’t care much one way or another? I loathe the original one, but am curious about some other flavors I saw. Maple was one of them.

    More Switch Witch 2020 answers

    After enjoying looking at the links several others have put in the questions, I decided to add some of my own favorite independent artists who I enjoy supporting - so, what do you think of the goodies from these people? And specific items you love? Enjoy! I had problems getting to some of the sites. Of the ones I saw, this was my favorite site. 6) https://www.shannatrumbly.com/ Lovely images. I think Moth & Moon is my favorite I enjoy historical reproductions and am a fan of LBCC Historical Apothecary. Is there something in her store you might be interested in? Did not see anything that is really my style. ****************************************************** Do you have a favorite art style/movement/artist? Arts & Crafts movement, Art Nouveau are both great loves of mine. Mucha is a favorite artist. Charles Vess too. **************************************************************** Who is your fashion icon(s)? Oh that’s tough. No particular person at this time. I’m old enough & had enough training in garments (I used to make wedding gowns for a living) that I just comfortably do as my eyes tell me. I love the creations of Firefly Path. I love scarfy/wrappy/shawly things I can play with & wear different ways. *************************************************************** What is your favorite mythological creature? Griffins, Dragons, the Fae *************************************************************** is there anything you want from Lush? I love anything in the Sleepy line.

I would store it in the freezer & eat it over a long time. *************************************************************** How do you feel about keto or sugar-free, low carb baked goods or treats?? I really don’t know much about keto (I’m vegetarian & it’s a lot of meat isn’t it?) Low carb bakes are okay – do you have a good recipe for interesting crackers? **************************************************************** Anything you'd like from Future Primitive: https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk Yes, the bath grains or whipped soap - Blackcurrant Damson Frangipane, Sylph, Dust Witch for scents ******************************************************************* Do you have an Etsy wishlist?

    Catsup on SW questions 9/12

    ****************** 9/12/20 Does anyone like the prints or items from www.ElissaMarieCreative.com ? I like the magical rosemary notebook- blank pages What about www.drawingsbynicole.com? Not really Does anything from www.vapidlacquer.com stick out to you? I don't do nail polish, but the scent All That Glitters sounds interesting. Any product you suggest for bath time or lotion. ******************** 9/11/20 Is there anything you'd like from the UK? Twinings Assam Tea Coffee Crisp bars, Harrods Earl Grey #42 tea. I'm sure there are other things like bath stuff. **************** Do you have a particular fandom you'd like stuff from? I love STTNG & Dr Who ( 11 is #1 in my book) ******************* How do you feel about tea? Tea runs in my veins. Preferences? Rooibos is evil- even in a blend. I love black teas. Assam is my favorite. All sorts of Earl Grey blends (Harney & Sons Victorian London Fog is a fave). Chai blends are something of an autumn binge for me. Would you want anything from David's Tea (https://www.davidstea.com/us_en/home/) I just started a wish list. I'd not shopped here before. Steepologie (https://www.steepologie.com/), another new to me company, another wish list - bonus, I just ordered a gift for hubby. Bird & Blend (https://birdandblendtea.com/us_en/), Could not get this website to work & let me look at tea or do you have a favorite tea maker to suggest? I love Harney & sons & have a wishlist there Www.harney.com What about tea tools or cups? I've got a few tools on the various lists. I would love a metal single mug brewer on a long handle- I just broke the one I've had for years. The eternal hunt for a purple teapot is a thing. ********************* How do you feel about fragrant things for the home like incense, candles, atmosphere spray? I love candles a lot. Atmo sprays I can scent linens with are lovely. Incense I use a lot less- too heavy. ******************* Do you share your home with any loved ones (human, feline, canine, etc.) who might enjoy a tiny treat too? Husband Bill and a pride of Overlords (5 ranging from 2-18). I share treats & teas w/ Bill. The kitties love little mousies to chase & store in my shoes. In the opinion of the feline overlords, though, the very best, most exotic gift/ offering is a feather. Preferably from some bird that is not from here ( We are near Detroit MI). Could be an Ohio pigeon & it would be exotic. If you have, or know a parrot that can spare a shed feather, or you find one on a walk somewhere, this could provide hours of entertainment. ********************** 9/9/20 would anybody like a small cross stitch thing, like a patch or pin? or cross stitching notions like handmade needle minders? Oh, that would be lovely. A pin or patch please. Perhaps a leaf? Or something Witchy? ************************* 9/8/20 Art and artists - anyone dig any of this? https://www.studiodesade.com/ (They also do masks, see here.) Not so much to my taste ************************ If you knit/crochet/weave, would you like custom dyed yarn? And if so do you have preference on weight, fiber, colors? Yes! Always room in my studio for hand dyed yarn. I do a lot of work with fingering weight/ sock yarn. Colors- black & grey are my neutrals. Purple, green, teal, blue are all in my general palette. Deep garnet red is the only red I really wear . As to fiber, anything natural or a blend w/nylon (aka, sock yarn) ********************** what is one fun/frivolous thing for $20 or less that you’d enjoy? Halloween dishes - I have a cool platter with witches on it for serving, could use a couple of plates or a bowl. ******************** If I sent you to a dollar store with $20, what would you walk out with? Halloween dishes or candleholders, perhaps bits to decorate a wreath. ************************ 9/5/20 what are your feelings on home made/ home canned jams & pickles or syrups? I even make things with berries I grow in my garden. I make both brandied & bourbon cherries. Syrups good for cocktails, in lemonade or tea, flavors include Lavender, Lavender + Lemon, & Lavender + Vanilla. Interested? Always, especially if there is a recipe with it. This is one of my questions, so not really an issue. ****************** Is there something that you're especially hoping to receive for this round? For example, a brand you've heard of that you're especially wanting to try, or a certain "thing" that you really want but just cant bring yourself to buy for yourself?? Honestly, I'm not hoping for a specific thing. If you want a suggestion, plan a long pampering spa/bath for me. I'll bring the audio book & a glass of wine. *********************** Would you rather receive supplies/tools for your own craft/hobby or receive something you can't make yourself? I am a maker of things. I very rarely am gifted by another maker. If you make things of some sort, I would be delighted to have something you made. If you are not into making that's cool too. If you like to buy tools, I have recently become fascinated with pretty/handmade crochet hooks - any size from 3 to 8mm. ***************** Is there anything you'd like from Penzeys (https://www.penzeys.com/)? I adore Penzeys, but honestly, I have a huge spice rack & a Penzeys store in my area, so I probably have it covered. ********************* 9/3/20 Would you like anything from here? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaterRoundsBeauty Sorry, no I'm not much of a makeup person. ********************* 9/2/20 Would you like a face mask from one of my favorite artists? https://akumuink.com/collections/facemasks These are fun! I like the mermaid, Cheshire cat, or Jackolantern smile ********************** one of our fellow BPAL friends makes custom masks, Hakutaku Custom Masks on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HakutakuMasks/ ). Would anyone be interested in one of her masks? Yes. Fabrics I like from her list: 14, 15, 16, 18, 36, 40 - the one with the "sailor" guy looks like my husband. ********************** 9/1/20 are you familiar with https://www.a-natural-alternative.com/ ? Take a peek & let me know if you might like to try something. I love her lavender bath fizzies & lip balms like pear or vanilla . *********************** 8/30/20 Is there anything you want from Japan? Current kit kat flavors are... Salty Lemon, Salty Lychee, Sweet Potato, Chestnut and possibly still some Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream from summer. Other than that, anime goods, cute stationery, other Japanese snacks, lay it on me! I love all the crazy kit kat flavors. I've seen really neat crochet patterns- as long as it's charted I can work with it. Ideally something like motifs I can repeat to make things. ********************** What are your favorite self-care items or activities? I'm especially curious about things that you hesitate to do/get because they feel like frivolous luxuries. I always hesitate on buying nice bath oil - somehow it always seems too frivolous, even though I use it over a long time. ************************ 8/29/20 Does anything from Paintbox Soapworks catch your eye (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/)? Perhaps bath Streusel & a candle for a nice evening's soak. Maybe a lotion. Putney Road sounds really lovely. GOAT sounds decadent. Cathedral of Pumpkins I enjoyed last year & would happily repeat. ********************* Does anything from the Trading Post's etsy page catch your eye (https://www.etsy.com/shop/bptradingpost)? Not seeing anything currently offered. This said, if they pop up a TKO atmo spray, or bath oil ( does TKO bath oil even Exist?) That would be amazing.

    Switch Witching 2020

    Hello All, especially my Witch for SW2020 I thought it would be easiest to put some links & info here that might be of use. Yes, I’m a crazy crafting fool that loves to make stuff & play dress-up. Equilter.com – My wish list is public & under email addy lawardrop@comcast.net Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/il-en/people/lawardrop Sure there are a few things sold out, but they give you some ideas. Books – used books are always fine as long as they don’t smell of cigarette smoke (allergies – no fun to read while sneezing). My current format for novels is mostly audio book. I’m kind of late to the party but I am really enjoying them this way & can multitask while working on fiber projects. I have an Audible account & other apps that let me listen to other types. I love Urban Fantasy, especially series that I can follow. I prefer the ones that are more mysteries as opposed to “paranormal romance”. (Some sex is fine if it makes sense for the characters, but the mystery & adventure is more what the story is based on). I’m current on Charles DeLint, Kevin Hearne, Kim Harrison & Faith Hunter (unless there’s a brand new Jane Yellowrock). I love Seanan McQuire’s October Day series & believe I’m current – but have not read any other series she has. I’m in the middle of Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series but have not read any of her other series. I’ve read the Kate Daniels series by Illona Andrews, but not any other series (some of which I hear are straight up romance novels – no to those please). I’m open to other writers & other series if there is open you can recommend. Please start me with book 1.

    Switch Witch questions & answers

    I think this will make me current. No idea why the formatting is so nuts- sorry. Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/ Four & 20 blackbirds or ghost - any product, they all sound lovely Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of? I love Edgar Allen Poe if you can suggest a film Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)? Do any of these knitted items appeal to you? Easy Fingerless Mittens- yes Pfeilraupe Asymmetrical Scarf - yes Odyssey Shawl - yes Close to You scarf - yes Rikke Slouch Hat - no Simple Yet Effective Cowl- yes but not too tight Knitted Pumpkins yes Little Bear Stuffy no How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)? I love thrift stores & the things I find there I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? Nope I'm a makeup coward Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? Moisturizing products/ cleaners welcome Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? I What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?) · animal rescue - one of my favorite types of charities. A big bag of kibble for a rescue - especially for pibbles. Or kitties. · I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations Tea from London! Assam or some interesting Earl Grey. Maldon sea salt. Paris- herbes de Provence or some other French spice blend Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. Those kit kats sound amazing. I would love to get better at bento ( I've played at it using a gladware plastic box) Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? Bath oil or moisturizing products. I have super dry skin. Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Assam tea is a fave. Dark chocolate is a lovely treat. Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? Something to use for lunch packing- trying to break my zip bag and other trash addiction. Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? Would you like anything from Lush? I have not been in Lush in ages, so I'm not current with them, but anything lavendar based like Sleepy or vanilla based would be lovely So, there's a Euro coin of some denomination coming out with Asterix on it for the 60th anniversary and, while I'm not a coin collector, I've loved Asterix since before I could read and therefore really want one or two of the coin just to have. Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees? I love otters and have thought of finding the Scottish bank note with the otter. No idea what the value is, I would hang it on the wall of my studio. Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? My etsy list was in my questionaire And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? Necklace 20" or longer chain or cord. I rarely wear bracelets ( I catch it on everything) Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? I've never seen this company. Rhubarb & custard or gingerbread chai. The idea of infusing spirits with tea is really cool. Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any? What colors?? Not much- I just made a few myself is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? They have the best chocolate coffee, but I think it's a Valentine's item. Other than that, some fun Halloween decorations. Something owl or raven related. There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) I wish I were better at makeup, but I'm just not. How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks? Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)? New or used? I like decks. I recently saw one that was glorious art nouveau. New or used is ok. Cats or Fae would also be good motifs for me. Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? Not really, I'm honestly a makeup coward and wear very small amounts. do you have a favourite saying or quote? First thing that came into my mind: That which does not kill us makes us stronger- of course picturing it with a Klingon motif. Yes I am a serious Star Trek nerd. How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit? I like spice with flavor, but not heat for heat's sake. Not sure where I am on the Scoville scale. I use cayenne quite a lot but I think that's the highest one. I love Hatch chilis when I can find them. How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? I have several and find I don't use them like I thought I would A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable? (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.) Certainly crochet is just as welcome as knits Any fiber issues? Mohair is fine if it's not right next to my skin ( shawl yes, armwarmers, no) About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! I'm very curious about The Shadowed Veil Perfume Oil, but not gutsy enough to blind bottle. If you happen to have anything in the Dead Leaves series (especially the vanilla incense one) that needs rehoming, I would love that (any that do not have musk) Ordering: Dead Leaves and Chai Perfume Oil Dead Leaves, Cacao, and Sandalwood Perfume Oil All Souls Perfume Oil Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy? Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y? And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) Yes please, that would be lovely. I love pear things when I can find them. Dark meads ( dark fruit like berries or currants) are yummy. Any whisk(e)y that is not super Smokey/peaty is welcome. Bourbon is a wonderful thing. Whenever we travel we try all the locally made things. Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? Nope. My nails don't wear polish well. Does anyone else do nail wraps? Nope What about postcards? vintage Halloween or Witchy imagery Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? I love Their vanilla & ambers. From the Halloween line- Samhain, Halloween BASTET 2016, Halloween 2019 or 2020 How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. It has been suggested that I have a salt problem ( hubby). I would love to try any interesting salt. I'm currently working on a jar of citrus blend salt & one with chili. I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip. Are any of these relevant to you or your household? My furbabies would love to taste your catnip. We love shortbread and would love to try any flavors. Something to nibble with a London Fog latte perhaps? Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? I love to cook & am vegetarian. I've recently been playing with ground chilis that are single kind ( as opposed to blended chili powders) to see all the different flavors ( not the scary hot ones though) Would you wear any of these? Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? Yes I would be thrilled, especially with Duleek- I saw someone wearing one the other day ( at Ren Fest) & was utterly charmed. Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? The only thing that comes to mind is lunchbox type containers that are not trash waiting to happen- I'm trying to break my zip bag addiction and create less trash. What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? My favorite vegan snack is nuts, especially deeply roasted spiced ones. Many dark chocolates are vegan, & dark is my fave chocolate especially with nuts or orange.
