Arte y Pico, Wham! and dessert...



I have been nominated for the illustrious Arte y Pico award by none other than Etsy treasury maven, savant of all things HTML, Babylyons! The crowd roars. Well maybe not illustrious, but we're gonna make this baby a rockin' big deal. Bursts into song, "If you're gonna do it do it right! Right. Do it with me!" Sigh. I miss Wham! Mentally hums a medley of my favorite Wham! songs. Okay, I digress-mea culpa.

Okay, so this Arte y Pico award works as follows:


First me and then you (the nominees)

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award; creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributions made to the blogging community, no matter the 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 blogger, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given them the award itself.
4) The award-winner and the presenter must show the link of "Arte y pico"blog , so everyone will know the origins of this award.
5) Show these rules.

Piece of cake...with ice cream...you know the kind with little pieces of Whoppers candy, oops-I'm dieting, sorry.


My picks are:
1. http://quejimenez.typepad.com/ :Ki is seriously the busiest creative spirit I've met in a long time; she has so much talent and promise. It's refreshing among the oft-weary mom blogs to read the triumphs of someone who does it all and with such grace and dedication. Here's to you my friend.

2. http://thoughtsfrommsq.blogspot.com/ : Ms. Q; this blog is a relatively new find for me. I was lured in by her list of ideas to keep the children occupied during the sweltering summer months but, it was her sage groceries money saving advice that kept me coming back. Thanks Ms. Q.

3. http://lepetitmonstre.typepad.com/the_monsters_lair : Ashley; I've been a fan of Ashley's art for some time now, admiring her precocious style on Etsy. I discovered her blog from a fora thread and have checked in for a read from time to time. Her recent heartfelt love letter to her three year old son sealed the deal for me and for this award nomination. The language of love and moreover maternal love is universal, if you haven't read it-please do.

4. http://mequetiscrafty.blogspot.com/ : Mequet is Crafty and even a little bit crazy-just what I like in a friend. Mequet's blog is also etsy fora crossover. As a lover of academia intertwined with a hint of assholiness I find great pleasure in cozying up with a good wheat beer and playing voyeur to the antics of her comical tribe. Keep an eye our for Sebastian, he's the protagonist of many blog comedies.


5. http://carnivaletsy.blogspot.com/ : Tammy's Carnival blog is based around her business and that of other talented artisans to that end. What I enjoy most are her featured artist interviews and great random finds. And, perhaps I'm biased but what I recall most from my own feature was that she asked about my childhood carnival memories. Genius marketing, subliminal technique-I don't know but I can't keep her blog, goodies or that question out of my head. Enjoy.

Awwwww, thanks!!!! It's much appreciated! My MIL just emailed a response to one of my posts (the one about dorky things that Justin says) and said that her day isn't complete without a post from me. All my family lives far away, so I thought a blog would be a good way to have updates on crafty ventures, family escapades, and general rants centrally located for all of them to see. I'm glad you're liking it!!!!
