Awards and bling
What a lovely surprise to receive the Arte y pico award from Sharon
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes 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/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/him the award itself.
4. The 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.
5. To show these rules
I have so many blogs that I visit and they're all so inspiring. Having to choose just 5 is very difficult. Here goes Judy and Jen my Aussie buddies. Judy Wise, Karen Cole, and Sharon at Norahs
This is so hard as I could add so many other people to this list, Julie H, Linda and Opie, Monica Magness, Nina, Katie K, Marie O, the list would be endless. Thanks to all of you bloggers out there who take the time to drop by and visit, you're all a great inspiration to me and I thank you all so much.
This is a necklace that's now on my Etsy store. It's a bit of bling with lots of vintage finds and rhinestones. It's not quite like my usual style, but then again I like many styles and am always keen to try them all.
I mentioned Monica Magness earlier, you should take a wander over to her site and see the wonderful completed art doll that is going to be auctioned to raise money for cancer. Monica is one amazing lady, the doll looks fabulous, she has loads of photos and shows the development of the doll from start to finish.
Finally for the people who've asked what I use to make my stamps. I use a product called Ezy carve, it's a square block 80mm x 80mm. I sometimes cut it into four. I also use plastic erasers from the newsagents or art stores
Finally, finally, thanks to lovely Linda Lynch for nominating me to reveal another seven things about me, I'll have to think over this as it's late and I have to go to bed now or I'll be late for work in the morning.
