Find a new home for your craft supplies!
Craigslist wears me out! Noone who asked about these stamps ever showed up. I so want them gone! I'm open to all offers, cash or trade. Have one?
IF you'll split the set up, I'd like to discuss the set w/ the Dragon and The Chinese Power Animals set (or book, as the case may be)
and ask what the set in the upper left of that picture is, and the large stamps in the picture to the right.
THe upper left is African Symbols I believe (I can double check). Bottom right is magickal symbols. The chinese power animals is a stamp set, never been opened.
The big stamps: One is women and it says something about strong and beautiful women (It's really neat). One is a map, one is just vague old fashioned text, and one is I think Paris (eiffel tower, map, etc...a collagey type image).
I'd like them to all go out together, easier for me since I HATE going to the post office.
I'm totally embarressed to admit, but what is BPAL?
Don't be embarrassed -- I find at least two things every day I didn't know about. Sometimes I was happier before finding them, but that's life!
BPAL is ... a cult. Perfume oils. A fandom. www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com
There are several comms here dedicated to the Lab.
If you don't like perfume oils (these are...really...unusual, as much as something that's been around so long CAN be) or can't use scents, I've assorted "e" (size 6) glass beads, some drilled and tumbled amber chips, photos of various people from the 40's and that era whom I have NO idea who they are. Any of that pique your interest?
The amber chips sound great. I'm also interested in the perfume oils but totally overwhelmed by the idea of them. I don't wear really complex scents, they don't do well on me chemically. I usually wear single fruit notes, lavender, or rose and in the winter I wear more cinnamony stuff (like Demeter's Cinnamon Bun) I also wear Lush's Karma blend. Nothing really sweet (no vanill-y, sugar cookie-ish type stuff), nor anything really strong and musky. Would any of the blends work for me based on that info?
If you prefer single-notes, I truly can't think of any of the available BPAL that'd work for you. However, I can decant 1/16 oz bottles of some Attar Bazaar scents for you -- very complex blends that present as single-notes. I can promise that in the bottle, the Rose, Lilac, and Honeysuckle are true.
Lily of the Valley
Arabian Wild Rose
Persian Lilac (smells like the Lilac bush at the corner of the yard!)
Tunisian Honeysuckle (just like the honeysuckle bush on the barn wall).
There should be one more rose, if I can find it I'll toss it in.
And there's about 1/2 cup or a little more of the amber chips.
Those sound good! Do any of the BPALs have a fallish, cinammony type scent?
Haven't tried the fall scents! I'll ask around, though -- but if you don't mind not being able to get more, I have one discontinued scent with cinnamon and clove, and one that does NOT have cinnamon in the listed notes but turns cinnamony on me --again, I'll gladly send 1/16 oz bottles of these two (usual sample size "imp" is 1/32 oz).
Sounds good, I like getting random goodies to try...I trust you to send me some fun stuff! If you email me your shipping info I can send the stamps out this week. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I got all your goodies this week, you sent one of EVERYTHING you mentioned...how cool is that? Thanks so much! I sent off your stamps, slow boat because it's a huge heavy box so maybe end of next week they will get there!
