What the? A p h o r i s m . . .

Aphorism: A brief saying embodying a moral, a concise statement of a principle or precept given in pointed words.

Ernest Hemingway was bet $10 that he couldn't sum up his life in six words. He won that bet when he wrote, "For sale, baby shoes, never worn."

Flora Dora, the inspiring, multifaceted and talented artist of Bonehead Studios tagged me to do this very thing about my own life.

So I sat, staring at the wall, contemplating my navel and finally asked my husband (a very smart man with a clever mind--is it cheating to ask him?). Well, he actually wasn't very helpful so I had to come up with something on my own:

WONDER ABOUNDS, CONSISTENCEY ELUDES, LOVED ANYWAY

Now the rules are:
1. Write your own six word memoir
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4. Tag five more blogs with links
5.Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

These are the taggies:
1) Joyce-Enchanted Productions
2) Kat-Scaredy Kat Primitives
3) Erika-Erika's Cupboard
4) Michelle-The Art of Michelle Steele
5) April-April Harres Folk Art

No pressure to play my sistas, but I'd love to see what you write if you do.

Hiya Deb!

Thanks for adding me to your blog and about the sweet comments about my work. Your really too kind!

I love your dolls and I have sense the first time I saw them on ebay. Your dolls aren't "run-of-the-mill" and I just love that!
Truly different as well as extraordinary. Your blessed!


Hugs, Mae
