tongue-tied and thankful...

Okay, deep breath...

Earlier this week I was given an honor... and, as I said before, I wanted to take the time to give a good and proper response. But I'm sitting here right now, and I'm stammer-writing. I'm tongue-tied and I'm speechless, but most of all I'm thankful... so I'm going to move on forward with this.

Thank you so much Rose for presenting me with the Arte y Pico Award. Even though I've expressed myself through images or written words for as long as I can remember, it still takes me aback when someone actually notices, even encourages it... Again, thank you, Rose.

To paraphrase, or to perhaps just quote directly:
This award, originally started by Esey, was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and their talents, be it writing or artwork in all medias. To be listed is considered a “special honor” the Arte y Pico Award is meant to be paid forward to bloggers who are deserving of it.

Here are the five blogs I've chosen, in no particular order. Be sure to check them out and give them some of the love they deserve.

Out of Character

A Girl and Her Journal

The Path to Publication

Musings From Behind the Easel

If you have been selected for the award, please pay it forward, following the steps below:

1) Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material, and overall contribution to the blogger community, regardless of the language.

2) Post the name of the author and a link to his or her blog so everyone can view it.

3) Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award.

4) The award-winner and the presenter should post the link of the "Arte y pico" blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Please post these rules!

The Arte y Pico blog is absolutely in Spanish. To read a not so perfect translation, go here.

Also, if you haven't already, check out Rose's amazing blog What I Made Today.

It's such an honor to receive this award from someone whose life is so threaded through with art, beauty and creativity.

Thanks again.
