Mann E. Quin

Today saw the unveiling of the creations for the last Cubby Hole challenge - 'Mannequin'

There are some truly amazing creations which will be coming to the Cubby Hole blog in the next few days, keep an eye out for the iron, complete with '3 pin plug'.

This is my entry, and as usual it's come from somewhere totally unexpected. The quote is fairly well known and is usually attributed to Mark Twain, but I have no idea what brought it together with Chairman Mao's 'Little red book'.

My mind is a scary place at times!

The next Cubby Hole challenge has been issued, and is 'Homage to White Space'. If you want to join in, details are here.

  6. Adore this little book of Mann E. Quin! I've always liked this quote, but putting it with the mannequin image is inspired!

  7. ...live like it's heaven on earth'.

    I hadn't heard this quote before; shall remember it now!
    Clever drawings; the dancing pose is making me smile and I'm trying to eat my lentil dahl.

  8. I can say that I do the last quote.. live like there's no tomorrow.. my motto of life is "Plan like you'll live forever, Act like you'll die tomorrow". I've tried dancing like nobody's watching, loving like i haven't been hurt, singing like nobody's watching.. but not so good at it =)
