New Contest: Drawing a Blank

After 351 posts, it's happened. I'm drawing a blank on what to blog about. Hmmph! So my blog idea: Let's pretend I'm intriguing and You Ask Me Questions. Anything. And I'll answer them. And we all know I love giving away prizes, so for every question you ask... you get your name in the draw for a cute little surprise (that means I don't know what yet)... Try to ask me things I haven't talked about much... or you can give suggestions for blog posts, or new projects, contest ideas, prize ideas, photo ideas... or what you'd like to see more of...etc. Whatever you can think up :) Hey! Get it--- "DRAWING...a blank"... I didn't even try on that one! Haha :)
ps> Your questions don't have to be a seperate comment each time.
also, I dislike riddles/trivia.... I can never get them ;) (lol, Thelma)


  1. What is the name of the direct ascent of your family for the following - mother, mother's mother, mother's mother's mother (that would be "maternal" mother, grandmother, great-grandmother)? I'm a genealogist - like this kind of stuff.

  2. Besides those gorgeous glass buttons, what is your most favourite color of button?

  3. Here's a question to give out to your readers for a future contest! Ha - me telling you what to do! Unheard of! Just a suggestion. How many words can you make with the letters included in the following word: extraordinarily

    I used to love playing this with my kids when they were little - great way for them to learn words, and spell, and well - keep them occupied!

    psst - alternatively, you could just answer the question!

  4. Why was the famous Indian Chief buried way on top of the hill?

    That's a question my Dad asked me when I was little, and it has always stuck with me. I do have the answer - just curious to see what your answer is.

  5. If you had two minutes to star in the movie "Dirty Dancing" - which scene would you be in and who would you be playing? Ohhhhh, leading question - but good one!

  10. <{[(13+1)/2]x3}-1>x0 = ?

  11. They have just concocted a completely different shade of blue in your honour - what would the name of that colour be?

  17. Hey t-bone! This contest is mine!

  18. Catching up...

    I think a kit would be great for the crafting idea. I would be interested in something like that. With 3 little ones, it's hard to shop for individual items to make 1 project and I find myself going to the ready-to-make kits. Kind of universal some of those kits are and getting something unusual to make would be neat-o!

    A question: What made you cut off your lovely hair? Your wedding pics were beautiful. (Not that you aren't beautiful now.. LOVE that pix of you in the sidebar!):o)

    If you could have 1 day to spend with any person, alive or dead, who would it be?

  20. if we went to a karaoke bar together, what song would you choose to sing?

    what is your most favorite craft/layout you ever made?

    is the glass half empty...or half full?

    if you had to choose one of the girls from sex & the city that is most like you, who would it be and why?

    what is your most embarrassing memory?

  21. hmmmm....i have read all these questions and now I am drawing a blank....i can't think of a thing to ask........hopefully i'll be back! :)

  22. i think the answer to thelma's math equation is 20??? am i right thelma??

  26. Nope Kim - the answer is 0. Any time there is an equation (regardless of the no. of brackets, etc.) look for the last quest which was x 0 (which is "outside" of the brackets) - the answer will always be 0.

    But hey Kim, I'm with you. When - please please please - LA and Mr Roto - can we be Aunties? Hmmmmmmmmm?

  27. Okay - I have another question just now, and then I'm thinking "Thelma, LA probably wasn't even born yet!" So, this question is out to those who would know the answer. Where were you when you heard that Elvis died?

    I was with my maid-of-honour having supper and the waitress said something about it and I like went "whatttttt" - the icon I grew up with was gone. I was very, very quiet for the rest of the evening. Yeah right, like I'm a rowdy gal at the best of times - not! I couldn't believe how that hit me. But you know, growing up on a farm and getting limited TV (3 channels and 1 was a no go - French!) and the radio as entertainment - well, Elvis was the King you know.

  28. Seriously though LA, here's my question: what things inspire you or get your creative senses going?

    Okay, the Aunties question was serious too!

  29. If you were a chocolate which taste would you be?

    Would you like to be a judge in Project Runway or Top Model? ;)
