I have won an award

Thank you to Karen at A Certain Age for awarding me the beautiful Arte Y Pico Blogging Award!!

I am so grateful to receive this award from such a lovely lady who recently took us all on a trip to Paris with her sassy blog.

The rules of Arte Y Pico are - you must pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting content, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language!

Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to their blog. 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 itself.

The award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link or the Arte Y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

I am giving the Arte Y Pico award to:

Jenn at Every Day I Lie A Little
I should really hate Jenn. She is young. She is clever. She can eat six meals a day and not put on an ounce AND always knows what to say. But more than that she has a book deal and her brilliant debut novel, A Kind of Intimacy which I was honoured to read at the proof stage is out next year. Read her blog and you will see just how great she is.

Darla at Bayside to Mountainside
Darla is fantastically creative and lives the kind of life I dream about. Read her reflections on the beauty of life and marvel at her ability to create beautiful things from scraps.

Sue at Della Street Dreaming
Why wasn't my English teacher more like Sue?If she had been, I might have got my book out before Jenn! I love Sue's quirkiness, her honesty, her vulnerability and her sideways sense of humour. Dream on.

Heather at The Middle of Nowhere
It took Heather and her husband ten years of planning, saving and hoping. But they finally realised their dream to sell up and move to the beautiful Scottish countryside. A stress management expert her voice and words are like balm for the soul.

Audi at Fashion For Nerds
Lovely photos and the way Audi puts an outfit together is mesmerising. She makes it look so effortless.

Please. Enjoy!

How sweet of you to consider me for the award and to appreciate my scrappy creations.
