My "Arte y Pico" Award!!!!

I was given two amazing awards in less than a week...what can I say but I'm thrilled! As I was composing my recipient's list for the "Sweet Home" award, Heidi from Health Nut Wannabee Mom blog was composing her recipient's list for the Arte y Pico award and you guessed it...I chose Heidi as one of my recipient's and Heidi chose me as one of her recipient's! Such a wonderful coincidence!!!

I was given the Arte y Pico award on Sunday June 23rd, but I decided to wait a few days before I posted my list, the reason being is it is simply amazing to me two people would decide to pass both the "Sweet Home" award and the Arte y Pico award along to me and I wanted both awards to stand alone...each award to be front and center for a few days without competing.

Now to the business at hand......

"The Arte y Pico Award"

The "Arte y Pico" award was created and to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and their talents, whether it be writing, artwork in all media's. When you receive this award it is considered a "special honor". Once you have received this ward, you are to pass it on to at least 5 others.

1) The winner of the award must choose 5 bloggers that they consider deserving of this award for the creativity, design, posts and contribution to the blogging community, no matter the language.

2) Each award given has to have the name of the author and 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 link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award winner and the giver of this award must show the link of the "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Post these rules.

  1. Heather - I am so flattered that you thought enough of my blog to pass on the award to Artscapes. I am always happy to hear when I have affected someone! Thank you! And Congratulations yourself! :)

  2. Congrats, Heather! A really lovely award, and you surely deserve it!

    Btw, you don't need to publish this part, but I wanted to let you know about it.
    Every time I try to comment on your blog, I have problems. It takes a really long time for your ads to load, and sometimes blogger also causes a problem. I frequently give up because it just takes so long.
    I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner, but I hope you are able to fix it. I suspect that you would get many more comments! :)

  3. Heather:

    I am well and truly flattered to be a recipient of this award. It is very gratifying to know that what you do has some positive effect for others. And, I am very proud to be keeping company with the likes of Michelle Basic Hendry! Can the same person be awarded twice?
