Arte y pico Blog Award

Nancy has very kindly awarded me with the "Arte y pico Blog Award" which was a really nice way to begin the month. I started this post ages ago, but got waylaid by a sick kitty and haven't had time to be on the internet at all for about a week and a half. So, please pardon the lateness!

The Rules Are...

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, for creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award-winning blog has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winning and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y pico"blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.

Award winners are:...

Okay -- this is tough. There are so many wonderful blogs out there. I want to comment on everyone's. Oh well -- here's a start! :-) And if you want to see more excellent blogs, just click on any of the links over there on the right ... any of them! ;-)

(1) Diahn of Art by Diahn for combining great painting and drawing, photography, and wonderful funny stories. And for being my in-town art bud. That counts for something...
(2) Lin of View from the Oak for being such an inspiration with her DAILY drawing and her constant encouragement to others.
(3) Teri of Teri's Painted Daisies for also inspiring us all by drawing, again, DAILY, and for starting a certain cactus craze that I believe is sweeping the internet...
(4) Janey of Janey's Journey for being SO innovative and generous and funny.
(5) Annie of New Life Rising for fun collage and photography and poetry and wonderful thoughtful writing.
(6) What the heck -- I can't leave out Laura of Laurelines, even though she is on a blogging break. And after seeing her garden and imagining all the fun she must have there, I can't say that I blame her...

Okay -- now you all go forth and multiply the awards.
