SW Questions for Summer

What kinds of crafts does everyone either enjoy making or enjoy getting? Do you have a certain type of handmade item that you love to collect? Socks, boxes, jewelry, dolls etc?
Making: I sew, crochet, do origami, decopage, paint and decorate things.
Getting: Jewelry, knitting, things to hold all my crafting flotsom...
Collect: I like jars and vases and see through shiny things.

Would you like any recycle/upcycle supplies for your crafting?
I would love old, interesting looking sheets, pillowcases, dresses... anything with enough yardage to make bags from. My favorite section in goodwill has always been the hideous bridesmaid gown section.

What is your favorite anime, or if you don't like that what is your favorite animated series?
Black Cat, Ghost in the Shell, Trigun, and Cowboy Bebop, Samarai Jack

Tea. How do you feel about it?

Yum

Would my future witchee like to receive steampunk style jewelry?
YES YES OH GOD YES!

Salt soap bars (soap made with a large quantity of salt, like salt-scrub-in-a-bar)?
Sure, I'll try em

How would you feel about homemade jelly/jam from home-grown berries?
Yum

Homemade dill pickles? Made from cukes, beans, snap peas, baby zucchini?
Gherkin or snap pea would be delightful

Based on Prior Carnivale act prototypes...which one are you truly excited about?

The cinnamon-y roller coaster sounds yum... haven't really tried any of the CD scents save a few of the snakes. Enable me, witchy!

Would it bother you if you are not the first person to receive the same gift? Imagine a Witch who always sends her favourite book, for example.
Nope!

Pets: What do you have, and do they need/want anything?

My dog eats squeaky toys for breakfast! Any squeaky toy, or just the little squeakers so we can replace them in the toys, would be most loved.

Does anyone play video games? What platform(s)? Are there any new or vintage games you would like? Do you play any online games, like World of Warcraft? If so, what server do you play on, what's your character's name, etc.?
Yes! I play games that work on Linux, either through wine or natively, and my boyfriend has an xbox that I play on when I get down to see him. I'm also on WoW, on Kirin Tor US Alliance as Stixy, or Farstriders US Horde as Nolia. WoW time cards are always welcome here. ^.^

Are you in need of decanting supplies, wand caps, or other scent-related paraphernalia?
ooh yes, let's see... Imps, pipettes, and labels for decant circles; little sptritzers to make some room sprays from some of my imps; and anything else you suggest, really.

Are there any single notes (likely non bpal) that anyone is dying to have/try?
To have: Orange Blossom, Sandelwood, and Honey (if only Jezebel came sans roses)

A month of Netflicks vs a DvD?
DVD for me, I'm terribly forgetful and wouldn't watch but 1 or 2 movies in a month anyway.

Adorable Japanese characters?
No thanks

My fiance sent me an early dvd rip of Coraline that he was given (pretty sure it's not been released yet, but I sometimes have a hard time keeping up) and I was wondering if anyone would like a copy of it?
No pirated movies, please

Do you collect dolls or miniatures? What kind? Do you like to get new clothes or items for them?
*nerd* I collect DnD/Roleplay minis, and Warmachine game models. */nerd*

If you were to make a seasonal mix CD for this summer, what would you name it?
Summer Sizzle, or something else corny like that

Do you wear makeup or nail polish? Need brushes, containers, storage, mani/pedi supplies? What colors and brands do you like?
I'm trying to get into wearing makeup and I keep my nails polished to stop biting them. I'm aching for a good ridge filler for my nails, and crystal nail files are always nice, as I lose mine on a regular basis.
I have a bunch of eyeshadow samples that I love from Shespace/About Face, and use foundation from Everyday Minerals.
For makeup I like a mix of girly neutrals and gothy colors (I'm a closet goth). Nail polish, anything goes really except glitter. Glitter is the Devil's beauty product. I tend towards cool colors and dark vampy ones. Sheers get splopped over black or white, so don't worry about that.
Also, I live in the middle of nowhere, so things from target or drugstores are really big treats. (I seriously drove an hour and a half just to spend 30 bucks on nail stuff and makeup at walgreens.)

Do you like shiney hanging porch decorations like windchimes or those things that spin and swirl in the wind?
Yes please! *grabby hands*

Hair adornments?
I need headbands and bandanas code red! I chopped my waist length hair off last month and all I have for my hair is chopsticks!

Is there a program you might have missed or show you love which is gone from the airwaves which might be found (or burned) for you by a Witch?
Any of the Animes up earlier.

Would anyone like bath bombs or bath melts scented with one of their favorite Bpal scents?

No, but wax tarts or lotion would be lovely!

Would you like homemade cinnamon buns or sticky buns?
I don't know how well they'd survive the trip but sure!

How many potential witchees have an iPod, or download MP3s?
Yes and Yes

Are there any of the BPTP bath oils you adore (particularly ones that you cannot get anymore). What about the room sprays?
I haven't tried any, but the ones I'm interested in are on my wishlist

as long as they're dark and non-hippie

Always welcome, I use CV shampoo bars, but can always try more! I also am looking for a decent lotion, as I am sooo flaky from the AC

What about burnables as in candles, tarts and/or incense?

oooh candles and tarts are nicey (prefer unscented candles and scented tarts), lesser quality scented oils would be nice too, I'm too poor to waste the bpals in the burner.

Who knits? Do you also spin and dye? What supplies, that you wouldn't buy for yourself, would you just love to have for that activity?

I don't knit yet, but I do crochet, and I may teach myself to knit this winter. Don't dye or spin either, but spinning looks like fun, so a little drop spindle with some fluff would be cool. otherwise awesome pretty yarn to play with, and some round markers for amigurumi.

Do you like coffee? Whole bean or ground? Bold/Medium/Mild roast?
I only drink coffee in fancy fattening coffeehouse drinks (mmmn Mocha Macchiato)

Scent of the Day: Lovers in a Ricefield

I've decided to do a little mini-review/splooge on whatever scent I'm wearing lately, just to get me talking on here. (Hi switch witch buddies!)

So today, or last night rather, is Lovers in a Ricefield (Plum blossom, vanilla sandalwood, nutmeg, and wild rice). When I first tested it my first thought was rice pudding. It's not too foody though, just kinda mellow and warm, like a big warm sweater. I've been slathering my arms with it when I sleep and it really helps me doze off. This is what I expected Dana O'shee to be like, instead of ALMOND OF DOOOOM!

This is going to be an expensive update for me...
