Yesterday I received a lovely surprise from my friend, Gayle, at Sparkle Jars - not one, but two awards for my blog! I really am touched, as Gayle is such a sweet person and her blog is full of beautiful handwork, images of nature and wonderful quotations and poetry. If you read her blog, you will find sincerity, a beautiful love of family, and a very creative spirit! Thank you so much, Gayle!
The first award, the Arte y Pico, is given for creativity, design, interesting material and contribution to the blogging community. This reward requires the recipient to: 1.)pick 5 other blogs for this award and include links to these blogs, 2.)show the award and a link to the blogger who gave the nomination, 3.)show a link to the Arte y Pico award and 4.)display these rules on your blog.
The second award is the Brillante Weblog Award.
The rules for receiving this award are as follows: 1.)Post the logo on your blog. 2.)add a link to the person who nominated you. 3.)Nominate 7 other people for this award and add links to their blogs. 4.)Leave a message for the people you've nominated.
I love reading blogs, especially the ones that show creativity, humor and originality. The bloggers I've nominated really inform and delight me and I'd like to nominate these ladies for both awards: Terri at Stegart does wonderful work in fiber and paper. She combines whimsy, simplicity and scrumptious color in her designs. Sue at Sue Bleiweiss has a constant flow of new ideas and amazing projects in fiber and mixed media. Ellia at Greenbeanbaby Art is a fantastic artist and illustrator in cut paper and fabric. She keeps me laughing with her cute characters! Amy at Lucykate Crafts creates the most adorable felt animals I've ever seen! Her sense of design is really wonderful. And, finally,
Geninne at Geninne's Art Blog paints beautiful, beautiful illustrations of nature. I'm really moved by her birds, in particular.
These two bloggers have already been given the Arte y Pico award, but I'd like to nominate them as my final two for the Brillante Weblog award. KJ at Eye-Dyllic offers a continuous stream of quotations, poetry, humor and lovely illustrations, and Beverly at Teatime and Roses displays warmth, creativity and her beautiful flower photography.
I'm very pleased to have received these awards and I'm grateful to these bloggers who are such great sources of inspiration
