and somehow the good ones sometimes slip through to the dreaded underworld of SPAM. today i thought i might browse through the emails that didn't make the cut, and lo and behold, it turns out yahoo has been at it again!
i've been honored with an award... and i almost didn't know about it!!
arte y pico
thank you, courtney, for the pleasure of your kind favor (just kidding - i got that wording from one of those *other* emails!!) seriously, i am truly honored to be thought of as someone who has "creative ease."
according to the *official* website, arte y pico can be translated into a wonderful phrase in Mexico, “lo maximo.” (it will never find its counterpart in English, but if it HAD to, it would be something like, "Wow. The Best Art. Over the top.") [mostly not my words.] according to the tradition of passing along blog awards, here's the gist:
1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and 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 presented her/him with the award.
4. The award winner and 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. Show these rules.
i feel a little on the spot to carry on the tradition of nominating 5 blogs, but here are 5 blogs that have inspired me over the past few years.
the nesting place
sweet funky vintage
i hope you will find some inspiration there, as well. and, if you've sent me an email and i haven't responded, my apologies!! as soon as that $7.6 million is transferred into my account, i'm going to go right out and hire a new personal assistant!
