I am so excited and flattered that one of my favorite artists, Mary of Green Woman Creating has passed on an award to me. It is the Arte Y Pico Award "for creativity, design, interesting material and contribution to the blogging community." How exciting is that?!

Here are the conditions of accepting the award….

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 conditions. Award website: Arte Y Pico
Now to nominate 5 of my fellow art blogging friends & let them know how much their blogs inspire me!

There are so many amazing blogs and artists out there that it is hard to choose only five, but here are a few of my favorites:

1. Lady Lavona at Cabinet of Curiosities

2. Chris at CK Designs

4. Capitan Langstrump at Pildoras Crumelus

5. Karen at A'Musements

Mary has also tagged me to list six random facts, quirks,about myself. Now that is going to be hard to do. Because Quirky just happens to be my middle name, well one of my middle names.

1. When I was a kid I wanted to be an entymologist when I grew up, (that and a waitress, lofty ambitions, huh?)

2. I have 30 baby chickens in my dining room and I have 70 more ordered. Need eggs?

3. I can shoot really well.

4. I really really wish I could speak other languages.

5. I would love to have a boat and travel all over the world, except for the fact that I get seasick, really easily. Do you get over that?

I would like to tag the same group above for this also. So heads up!
Be sure to visit Mary she is always up to something interesting.

Where would I even begin? Your profile photo? Stunning! And all the clever little sidebar quips? Love them. Very funny stuff here.
And your #5 of random better get over your seasickness before we set sail- could be ugly!!

Hi Christie,

Well congratulations! Well done and very well deserved!

I like your quirks. I too wish I had the gift for picking up languages, and I also wish I had a boat to sail to the far-off corners of the globe.

I am enjoying my visit on this afternoon to your blog.

Best regards,
Lavinia Ladyslipper

I love your romantically stylized "Serenity Now" banner. Elegant font and nice touch with the bird and eggs. Of course I would appreciate that, being the birdbath lady...:).

Capitán Langstrump said...
