My very first award!

I can*not* believe I won an award!

Michelle awarded me the Arte y Pico award, which is given to creative bloggers (cough!) who contribute to the overall blogging community.

Don't ask what I contribute... because I haven't quite figured that out, yet.

I actually think it's more of a benevolent award, especially when you compare my creativity (cough! ahem.) with people like Michelle. So thank you, Michelle. I am honored.

But I'm really excited to have been chosen. I'd like to thank everyone who reads my pointless ramblings, and yet returns anyway. I'd also like to thank all of you who compliment me on the cakes I post here. It really makes my day to read your comments. As many bloggers before me have said, comments are like crack to us.

This award recognizes a blog’s creativity and overall contribution to the blogger community. According to the originator of the award, the words "Arte y pico" will never find its counterpart in English, but if it HAD to, it would be something like, "Wow. The Best Art. Over the top."

Once you’ve been selected, please follow these guidelines and pay it forward:

1) Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material, and overall contribution to the blogger community, regardless of the language.

2) Post the name of the author and a link to his or her blog so everyone can view it.

3) 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.

4) The award-winner and the presenter should post the link of the “Arte y pico“blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Please post these rules.

I really, really hate this part. It's just too dadgum hard... but here's my best effort:

1. Hazel at Just Add Dots

2. Kristin at Grace Violet

3. Lisa at Cakes and Cupboards

4. Melody at Kids, Cakes, Dishes, and Laundry... in that order

5. Crystal at Crystal wants to share

There are so, so many blogs I read daily. I feel they all contribute something, or I wouldn't read them! But these ladies are all so creative and talented, as well. They are all awesome at what they do!
