5 Answers – Part 1

I’ll take these on a couple at a time. Gives me more blog fodder that way. ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. How old are you?
  2. 31

  3. Do you prefer cross stitch or beading?
  4. Ouch, do I have to choose? I started working with beads shortly after I learned to cross stitch, so beading is a close second. Beading is faster and the sparklies sometimes make it much more rewarding for the amount of work put in. But cross stitch is my original and still favorite.

  5. What is one craft you’ve been dying to try and haven’t done yet?
  6. I have to admit that I pretty much try my hand at everything I desire, but there is one thing I haven’t done yet. Quilling. I really will try this someday. I look at the supplies longingly anytime I’m in a craft store, so I should just break down and try it. My brother did quilling for a while when I was a girl. I just couldn’t figure out what practical use it would have nowadays, but I see that people are using quilled shapes on cards, so perhaps that is the answer.
    Now look what you’ve done! ๐Ÿ˜†

  7. Have you ever been out of the country?
  8. Yes. Canada and the United Kingdom are other countries that I have frequented. I love London; it is one of my favorites spots to visit to hang out and relax. We also visited various counties in Scotland with Terry’s parents several years ago.

  9. What’s your favorite book?
  10. Just one? My favorite series is called The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. While I hope that he wraps it up soon, there are a dozen books so far in the series at 650+ pages a piece. They are hefty books hardbound, but I enjoy reading them.


  1. Have you ever eaten Vegemite?
  2. No, I haven’t, but I will try it someday.

  3. What’s your guilty pleasure?
  4. I had to think about this one pretty hard because I try not to feel guilt over anything. I think I’ll have to say that my crafting supplies are my guilty pleasure, though. When I decided to get into a craft, I immerse myself in supplies that then tend to sit around gathering dust years later.

  5. Where in the universe would you most like to visit in your lifetime?
  6. The universe is far too vast to narrow down for that question, so I’ll stipulate only to where on the planet I would most like to visit. There are several such places on this Earth. First up is Paris, which we are planning to visit for our 10th anniversary. Next is a 4 to 6 week tour that will hit Hawaii (just for a stop over; I can’t stand the thought of being in an airplane that long), Australia and New Zealand. This is our plan for our 15th anniversary. After that comes China and Japan. Sound like a plan?

  7. What’s the most embarrassing album in your music collection?
  8. Oh my. Which one to choose… Keep in mind that I still have a bunch of old cassette tapes from the 80’s. ๐Ÿ˜† I guess it would be the N.W.A. album that I bought as a teenager. Yes, you read that correctly. Skinny little white girl with a hard-core, explicit rap album. What can I say? My tastes wander all over the map!

  9. What’s the name of your soon-to-be-ONS?
  10. Oh, now I can’t reveal that yet. Let me just say that I chose a business name and corresponding domain name over a year ago when I started to get more serious about eventually becoming a designer. The initials of that business name are OSL. The name of the ONS will be [OSL] Needlework Supplies. That’s as much of a hint as you’re going to get until March 1st. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Quilling looks so cool, Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขve seen them use it on cards now, which is fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also, the Wheel of Time series is so good. I love those books. I stopped at number 10 though. I wanted to reread them all again!

  2. Isabelle says:

    Yeah, Paris! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m not sure I have 5 questions for you, Jenna, but here are just a few:
    1. What are your religious beliefs?
    2. What inspired them?
    3. What job did you want to have as a child?

  3. Barbara says:

    Vegamite is GROSS. Blech. Sorry to everyone who likes it.
    We also have the Wheel of Fortune series and Niek loves it – I like it, too, but he LOVES it.

  4. Michelle says:

    I’ve wanted to do quilling for awhile now, but it just never makes it to the top of my list. It looks like so much fun though.

  5. Angela says:

    I have quilling stuff (Whistling) I played with it a little , but I haven’t retried it in some time. It’s very easy to do btw.
    Off to do some online snooping for a shop name. (Yes I have been at this before ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  6. AnneS says:

    Yay, if I don’t make it to the US in the interim (which I’m still hoping for, even if it’s not this year), hopefully I’ll get to see you and Terry for your 15th anniversary! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve just asked Chiara when she would like to start this SAL. I just need to get the threads…maybe I should change colours like I normally do…lol

  8. Melanie says:

    Oh yep, I do the craft supplies gathering dust thing too! I have quilled, as well (not sure that is the correct word for the past tense, but you know what I mean). I made a lovely framed picture of flowers in a vase for my grandparents, but after that I pretty much couldn’t think of anything else to do with it, so I stopped. I’m a bit fickle with my crafts (except cross-stitch, well, mostly)… I tend to flit from thing to thing.

    Laughed about you having NWA. DH has some, which thankfully he keeps from my tender ears!
