And the winner is...

I wasn`t sure how to hand out the awards...all the blogs I have nominated deserve all three in my opinion, but some have already received one or more of the awards. Also, the rules for the Arte y pico are a bit different, so I have three lists, one for Arte y pio, and one for the Brilliante, and one for the I love Your Blog award. I have given some blogs multiple awards, and that in no way reflects poorly on the ones I have given only one to. This was hard for me, as I don`t spend as much time as i`d like reading blogs. Ok, here goes.

First, the Arte y pico. Here are the rules:

1) Choose 5 blogs deserving to receive the award (conception, creativity, interesting equipment and contributing to the community of bloggers whatever the language)

2) Every award must contain the link towards the blog of his author so that it can be visited.

3) Every winner must show the award-logo and put back the name and the link towards the blog that attributed it for her.

4) The winner must show the blog link the Arte y Pico.

5) To Post the rules.

Here are my selections...and I have been narrowing down my choices for hours today...There are so many lovely blogs...it was so hard to choose
  1. Eva
  2. Anne
  3. Lena-lou
  4. Mayte
  5. Susimac
All your blogs are so beautiful ladies...you are really creative.

Now the rules for the I love Your Blog award:

  1. 1 Put the logo on your blog

    2 Add a link to the person who awarded you

    3 Nominate at least 7 other blogs

    4 Add links to those blogs on yours

    5 Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs

    My choices are (again, it was hard deciding)

    1 Nicki
    2 Katrina
    3 Anne Hawn
    4 Cathy
    5 Sampler Lover
    6 Elisabeth
    7 Myrna

    Some of these blogs are old favorites of mine, some are new discoveries. I love reading them all.

The Brilliante rules:

  1. Put the logo on your blog
  2. Add a link to the person who awarded you
  3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
  4. Add links to those blogs on yours
  5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

And my choices are:

  1. Cathy
  2. Sampler Lover
  3. Myrna
  4. Becky
  5. Mary Kathryn
  6. S
  7. The Tennessee Sampler Survey

All are beautiful blogs that inspire me and give me hours of reading pleasure. Thanks ladies!

Thank you for nominating me for the 2 awards. I am deeply honored to receive them from you as I always enjoy reading your blog and I always come away with something to think about.
I unfortunately for me have a lot of trouble figuring out links etc. and will wait for my computer genius to come home from school to help me.
Thank you by the way for the link to The Tennessee Sampler Survey. It looks like a blog where I can sit with a cup of tea and explore and enjoy - Sandra.
