Only About A Month Late

Once upon a time I discovered I was given a blog award by checking my sitemeter (it had a link back to the blogger who gave it to me). I was pretty excited about it so you know what I did? I forgot all about it. Seriously. I didn't even leave some comments to say thank you. I still feel guilty about that. I also decided if I ever received another award, I would post it about that very day. So, let's pretend it's June 29th, shall we?

Kellie has given me the Arte y Pico Award.

The "Arte y Pico" award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and talents, no matter whether it be in the form of writing, artwork, design, interesting material, or contributions to the blogger community. When a blogger receives this award it is considered a "special honor" and, once presented to you, it is to be passed on to at least 5 other bloggers who meet the criteria.

Pretty cool, huh? Thank you so much, Kellie!!!! And, I apologize for not mentioning this award earlier and waiting until you were out of town to do it.

I'm passing on the Pico de gallo award* . . . I mean the Arte y Pico Award to these five extremely talented bloggers:

Emily at The Floss Box -- Emily has done some amazing stitching projects, she creates and shares free patterns, she posts beautiful photos of Sweden, and she is always trying new things, which is very inspiring to me. I was really happy to see her entry was chosen as a finalist in the Feeling Stitchy banner contest. I hope she wins!

Maria at Lil Birdie Stitches -- Lil Birdie is so creative. I believe I found her blog through her super cute Felt Heart Valentine project. She's the kind of person who uses a pattern to make something and then makes something else with it or puts her own spin on it. Check out what Maria did with an empty Cool Whip container. Pretty neat.

Barb at Woof Nanny -- Barb's blog is always full of interesting, fun and creative stuff (OMG, Flicks!) and you really should be reading it regularly. She shares old family photos, cool videos, dog pictures, and recipes, in addition to craft projects. She also blogs at The Purse Project (a purse challenge that we should all join) and Artful Ties (a blog about making art from men's neckties). And, none of that low fat yogurt crap for her. Yeah!

Michelle at My Boring Life -- Pay no attention to the name. Michelle is far from boring. She spins! She makes pink lemonade! She paints pottery! (So does her husband. And no, I don't know if he has a brother.) And, she knits and crochets some fantastic things. Awww, look at the sweater she made for Nimitz. Bonus points for all the sweet pet pictures and for adopting a dog from a rescue.

Jenny at Jenny S Stitcher & Scribbler -- Jenny makes some of the cutest felt creations ever. Her podlings, tea bags and cakes are just adorable. The cuteness of the baby cakes will make your head explode. And, Jenny can also draw too. She turns her "scribbles" into amazing dolls and totebags. She even made nuns cute! Now if we could just get her to make her Ollie scribble into an embroidery pattern.

*I'm not the only one!

I have an award that I'm supposed to pass to 10 bloggers and I haven't done it yet, so you are not alone!

I love finding new blogs to read this way.
