Today I received the Arte Y Pico Award from Donna at Donna's Art. Thank you for giving me this award Donna. I feel quite honored because it is for creativity, design, interesting material and contribution to the blogging community. It's fun just to write a blog and then to receive an award for it is just such a blessing. Make sure you visit Donna and see her wonderful artwork and visit her Etsy shop.

The rules for this award are:
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 rules. There are so many blogs I love to read and I don't like to leave anyone of you out, but I decided to choose these :
