I have a lot of BPAL.

Some of it I don't love.

In the hopes of clearing it out, I'm knocking three-quarters off the asking price, until (slightly after 9 p.m.) Thursday evening. Everything gets sent out by Friday. Sale's over! Thank you. You can find the remainders here.

Found yet another bunch of imps. Most of them have been tested at one point or another; I think some of them are rather old untouched frimps, though. $1 each; postage is $2.50 in Canada, $3 to the States, and $4.50 everywhere else. All prices in $US; PayPal to torrain@rogers.com.

More stuff over here.

$1 imps, yayyy. )

Fall's coming. I've been wearing the pendant I bought last year, and breathing the smell of rain. And I've been seeing Hallowe'en stuff for a while, and I'm thinking it is definitely time to get rid of some of my perfume. Owning you is nice, but when it comes down to "ownership glee" against "moving stuff I don't actively want out of my house"? It's no contest.

So. Prices on thematically appropriate stuff--well, appropriate to my mood, at least--kicked down to half to two-thirds.

Sale's over. :) Thanks much to those who browsed and bought; it helped a lot to get some of that out of here. For the moment, the other stuff's still over here; I may do another sales post in the near future.

I have a scale! Little thing, sits on my desk or the shelf behind it, weighs up to 5kg.

It should make keeping track of yarn quantities easier, and makes me a *lot* more comfortable about mailing things. I can be sure I have the right postage now.

It is definitely time to get rid of some of my perfume. There are a few more bottles I'm waffling over, but this is most of it.

Prices in $US; shipping for imps is $3 within Canada, $3.50 to the States, and $5 everywhere else. Shipping for bottles is $6 in Canada, $8 to the States, and $10 for elsewhere. PayPal to torrain@rogers.com, please.

If you prefer, I can mail your items as a Small Packet, which has coverage, extensive packaging, and is required if you want tracking/delivery confirmation. I know it's a PITA, and I'm sorry, but it is the way of Canada Post. This runs:
* $7 to $10 for Canada, depending on province (I know)
* $17 for the States
* $19 for elsewhere.

So, BPAL (my first weak point) is doing a limited edition release of oils (my second weak point) with a Pickman Gallery theme (third weak point, and I am crumbling).

I miss doing decant circles.

'd'anyone, provisionally, be interested? I'm probably going to decide tonight.

Quicknote.

I would like to say something nice about the imps you can get from Pilot Vials;

I accidentally ran eight imps through the washing machine.

None of them broke.

Thank you. That is all.

Somehow I get the impression I lost most of a day between today and yesterday. (This may have had something to do with not eating until about half an hour ago. Today, I mean. I ate yesterday.)

Two more days until Christmas. I find I flinch less if I think of it as "Two more days until the next Doctor Who." The holidays are throwing my schedule for a loop; I've thought of at least two days this past week as being Friday.

All presents but one have been prepared. Just need to wrap the red/blue LEDs our niece and nephew are getting. (And I need to mail something out, but that is not on a deadline. Dear God mail can get expensive around the holidays.) And I need to return a couple of library books, and pick up a double handful of things before the in-laws come over.

I think I also need to unknit six rows of Travelling Woman, which at the moment is just making me very tired. I may save it for the SnB tonight; this kind of thing always seems to go better there. (Note to self: remember to bring Small Gods.)

I think I need my knitting projects would need much less managing if I had another 4.5mm circular. At the moment I think I'm knitting three or four projects on one, and I really must emphasize the one.

May go and break out the Mall Santa. (Sign of Villainess occupying a disproportionate amount of your attention; you Google 'mall santa' and are vaguely surprised when the body scrub is not on the first page.) I have time before people show up, and it would be relaxing.
green_dreams: (fall cat)
Villainess has brought Mudslide out again--something I've been waiting for since they sold out of it last year. This means I am placing an order[1], probably by Monday at the latest. Anyone want in? have placed one in fact.

[1] I know I'm being careful and slow to buy things these days, but I really have been waiting for this for months. I will just put off some of the spending on yarn I was hoping to do. Yes, I know what I just said.
green_dreams: (Hallowe'en Tree)
Hokay. Let's see...

[  ] collected menus
[X] organized footers
[X] four more minutes for work
[X] shrug knitting
[  ] collected green info
[X] laundry
[  ] last of minutes for work
[X] new scrub (ETA - this was absolutely lovely, by the way. It's Apothecary from Haus of Gloi; a sugar/shea/oil scrub with lemongrass, rosemary, blood cedar, sweet basil, lavender and the tiniest drop of vetiver. I plan on getting more.)

...and, taking the measure of the Furbeaste of Beasten sacked out on the couch,

[X] pet Piper's nose.
green_dreams: (green-eyed grey-faced peering cat)
So!

I'm going to pick up one thing (one thing! I'm being good!) from Blooddrop's bath products line. Anyone else wants in on the order, let me know by late this afternoon?

ETA: Order placed! :)

A couple of points:
* I'm happy to add on bottles or petals to the order.
* If you are already participating in my Conjure Oils circle, please let me know if you would like me to combine shipping. If the answer is no, I will send both circles once all your imps have been decanted.
* Because decant circles can get quite expensive, I'm afraid I can't afford to order any bottle that has less than three imps claimed by midnight on September 10th. I absolutely understand if you want to hold off on paying until the 10th to see if the scents you're interested in fill up, but I would *really* appreciate payment before I order, for obvious reasons. :)

The next Acts of the Carnaval Diabolique are showing no signs of coming out, and I was looking through the update and finding that not much grabbed me, but one of the Gris Grimly oils did appeal, as did the Lunacy. And both decanting and mailing packages out make me happy.

As usual, I'm happy to make it a group order when I'm ordering from the Lab.

Okay, guys, the oils have arrived today, and it looks like everything for the decant circle's there, except Labores Solis. I've dropped the Lab an e-mail and will update here as soon as I hear back from them; I'll also be commenting individually to people affected to let them know.

There's this update, it looks shiny, and... well, I've been itching to run a decant circle lately. Both decanting and mailing packages out make me happy. And there's Smoky Moon, and a couple of scents for astrological events, and a couple for the Nile, and a few based on lawn ornaments of all things... Good fun, you know?

So. The return of the decant circle. And as usual, I'm happy to make it a group order when I'm ordering from the Lab.

I've got a friend. She's going to go see Nine Inch Nails. They've got something going where if you donate three hundred to a charity of NIN's choice, you get to hug Trent Reznor.

(I swear I could hear her squee at the thought from all the way down in PA.)

So, in the name of doing such a thing, she's ditching the LEs that don't suit her. So she's auctioning off 5ml BPAL bottles of Snake Charmer Ressurected, Angeronalia 07, Melainis, Archangel Winter, Longing, Hay Moon, Long Night Moon, The Shattered Pumpkin, Hunter Moon 07, and Fairy Market. Her auctions are here, if you want a look.

Right then.

Kinda of a last-minute thing, but...

I'm ordering from Violette Market tomorrow morning. Anyone wants to tack something onto my order, drop me a note by 10:00 a.m. and PayPal me (torrain AT rogers DOT com) cash for what you're ordering plus postage ($2 for Canada, $2.50 for the US, $4 for overseas).
green_dreams: (bpal addiction)
So, while I was away, some packages came in. Plus one this afternoon.

Just a few. ) I am... a touch stunned.
green_dreams: (Morton Silkline)
I am currently exhausted--all the juice that was keeping me running through the last eighteen hours of typing and five hours of sleep and odd-hours of travel and meetings and food has run out. I want to go home and go to bed. However, there is Stuff That Must Be Done here, and so I am working at it. Very very slowly, because I keep sort of gently zoning out.

I think the freelance work went okay. I sent them what they needed at 1:33 this morning, at any rate, and I haven’t heard back with any requests for changes.

I have received permission to install Firefox at work. This is good because IE was blocking the CSS I was formatting documents for, and I couldn’t actually see how anything would look. So now I have Firefox, and AdBlockPlus, and a pretty pretty theme. Because if I’m going to stare blankly at the screen, it might as well look like hammered old metal with switches and gear and lights.

Heard back from someone who was sending me three bottles. She sent them to the wrong address, they were sent back to her, she’s reconfirmed and will be sending them on to me. Yay, I say.

I think I’m going to go get something to drink... juice or tea or something... and then try to figure out which of the things I need to do most needs to be done before I go home. In two hours. Dear god, it can’t come fast enough. I’m already thinking I might skip the express bus in favour of something whose route actually ends at a point where it will be convenient for me if the bus driver has to kick me off because I’ve fallen asleep.
green_dreams: (bpal addiction)
It's a soap thing. Or it started that way.

There's a company called Villainess. Mostly they make soaps and skin care products[1], although recently they've gotten into taking some of their signature scents and making perfumes out of them. If anyone's interested in trying out their perfumes, there's a friend of mine over Stateside who is bravely doing a decant circle.

(I am particularly fond of people who would be interested in Antihero, Crushed, Killer Beez, Scintillating, Shanghaied, Silk and Cyanide, and Kill-Switch, so that the bottles have enough slots claimed that they'll be ordered, but that's just me.)
---
[1] Although they also do a very nice "Soap & A Cuppa" combo gift box, involving one of their scented soaps and a coordinating hot chocolate or tea; I got my Mom the Dulces en Fuego one, which has a spiced hot chocolate mix to go with the "bitter-chocolate with citrus, black pepper, and nutmeg" scented soap.
