"I'd like to thank..."

Woohoo! I made the front page of Esty this afternoon! I think I did once before, but this time I actually saw it. :)

My blog has been honoured with an award:Astrid, the talented and creative blogger (Germany), kindly bestowed the premio arte y pico upon me. This premio was initiated by Eseya from Uruguay with the aim of honouring arts and creativity in the internet world. As always, these awards come with certain criteria:

1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogger community, no matter what language.

3. Award winners should post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award.
4. Please include a link to the “Arte Y Pico” blog so that everyone will know where the award came from.

I pass the award on to these well deserving folks:
