Arte y Pico [Art & More] Blog Award

Oh, Carolina, this blew me away! Especially because of what you wrote about my blog. THANK YOU! And now it's my honor to also select five blogs which inspire, move, motivate and captivate me.

Here are the rules:
1. You pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what 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 winner has to show the award and put the name and the link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. Award-winner 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.

My choices are:
1. Carla - Carla goes out of her way to try things, color combinations, fun stamps - she's a path setter, I think, and so humorous! She reminds me to blow the boundaries off my mental maps.
2. Mercedes - Mercedes is 'new' to keeping a visual journal, but if I look at her art, I find myself feeling reborn & completely NEW, and I've been doing it for 2-1/2 years. She uses fabric in ways that make me swoon, experiments with the classic painters' styles, and manages always to retain such a ... 'feminine' ... feeling to her art. I live for her new posts! (No pressure, Mercedes, no pressure!)
3. Debbie - This blog is BRAND NEW to me (this week), and I find myself just laughing uproariously and also riveted. Such a fun, real woman, and great art.
4. Ree - I am certain beyond certain that Ree will not have time to forward this award, but she deserves it for hours upon hours of great writing accompanied by awesome photographs, and unceasing FUN! on her blog (not to mention the best photos of cowboy butts in chaps anywhere on the net).
5. Christine - For inspiration that never stops, of the mind-blowing variety, for being my mixed media idol even though she doesn't know it (yet!)

Carolina, thank you again!
