Oh what a wonderful surprise I received when I arrived home (right now I am in Paraguay) and notice that Mary Lee from A Year of Reading has awarded this blog with an " Arte y Pic0" Award. To my surprise, I read these words in Spanish and my eyes brighten up completely! I love this expression! ¨Lo Maximo" T (that used to be one of my adolescent words, ya know, the ones you used over and over..ha ha). So thank you Mary Lee for your kind words. Also, I am sorry that the picture of the award is not showing on my blog (yet). I am using a public cyber in South America and things don´t run the way you want all the time. Oh well.
My favorite part of this award is the ¨paying forward¨piece. So, here are the rules to be followed:
Select 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award, based on creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogger community. The blogs can be in any language.
Post a link to each blog so that others can visit.
Each award-winner has to show the award and link to the blogger that awarded it.
The award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show a link to Arte y Pico.
now....(drums playing) the Arte y Pico Award goes to...
