Arte y Pico Award!

My friend Anne at Gaal Creative honored me with the Arte y Pico award. Thanks so much, Anne, for the award and the kind words about my blog!

"Arte y Pico" is phrase that roughly translates in English to:
"The Maximum. Wow. The best art. Over the top."

The "rules" for the Arte y Pico award are:

If you are an award winner, show the award, the name of the person who gave it to you, and link back to his or her blog.

Pick 5 blogs you think deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and for contributing to the blogging community.

List the author's name and link to his or her blog.

Leave a message on the blogs of those you've selected.

Link back to the original Arte y Pico blog, so all will know the origin of the award.

I think that blog awards like this one are a great way to discover new, inspiring blogs. But it is so difficult to only pick 5!

That being said, here are five of my favourites - much deserving of the Arte y Pico award:

Mel Stampz
This blog is for stampers, but her ideas are inspiring for any artist!

Trish Bee’s Art-Venture
This lady is so inspiring!

Aileen's Musings
Aileen's blog is so much fun, and she finds wonderful links to all things crafty!

Violette's Folk Art
My friend Violette's blog is as inspiring as it is colourful!

Suzi Blu
Visit her. You will love her like the rest of us!
