Well, I’m glad you asked. Oswald for Oswald Chambers, a Scottish Missionary. After he died his wife put together all his writings into a book “My Utmost for His Highest”. It’s a deep read.

Then oddity, because I was born odd, was odd as a kid, definitely as a teenager and I’m still odd but I’m comfortable with it.

Ain’t nobody got a user name like mine. :wink:

We have a guest room with all my antique furniture and craft/hobby tools and supplies in it. It has all the old fashioned decor that my husband doesn’t care for and calls “grandma this”, and “granny that” so the room gets referred to my “granny room” and things I do in there are my “granny room crafts”

Mine was originally my name + bug (a nickname) but I shortened it because online safety so now it’s just CBug. The 135 I just thought sounded cool

I love this thread. Thanks for asking. I used to be HookedOnCotton, because of crochet hooks and “hooked on phonics” and I love the feel of cotton yarn.
I left facebook and instagram for a couple years and only got back on because of my @Letodolls makes to sell. So, I had to change my facebook page to “Hooked By Marilyn”. (that’s me). I made the intagram match it and just recently changed it here also, so they are all the same again.

I wanted to use a play on the nickname we use for my son online (O) and Oh Baby! But I was afraid that people would think I only made or designed baby things, which wasn’t even close to accurate, since he was 6 when I started designing and trying to sell my makes… So I added the ~N~ More to represent more than baby… Of course when I started using that, some people thought it was me announcing another pregnancy :woman_facepalming:t3::woman_shrugging:t3: which of course didn’t happen for another 5 years! Haha

I am glad for this explanation. I always divided the letters in anoswaldoddity differently.

Instead of an oswald oddity
I would think anos waldod dity or anos waldo ddity or something like that, that didn’t flow. Now I know!

When I first got on line I used my favorite pet ferret’s name. Later I realized there were literally 10’s of 1000s of Venus’ out there and so my family and friends could find me easier on social media I added part of my Church’s initials to differentiate my name for them. I don’t use social media anymore (so much drama), just here, and my blog, which I will be adding pictures of my son’s Alpaca Farm Days week-end photos of tomorrow. www.ldsvenus-knits.com you’ll probably have to copy and paste.
