Blog Award and Passing it On - Thank You!

Kat Tarra gave me this lovely blog award. I’ve been frequenting her blog and the blogs of several others on a regular basis now that I am getting the hang of some of the basics. How NEAT–O to have someone like Kat , who is well-seasoned in her blogging, come on over more than once to mine… yes!!

Thank you Altered Kat!

Sooooo, I am supposed to pass the award on to 5 other bloggers. I could pick more than 5 easy enough but glad to be limited –as- five is my favorite number. You can find lots of blogs I recommend on the right bars of this page – no there are no cool beverages served (I know, I know, lame, -but I luv bar jokes)!

Here go my five Award Picks!!

Art Addict ~ this etsy seller has quite a knack for writing and she’s one of the first blogs that I found I kept coming back to see what new stuff she was writing about. I'm thinking you too will enjoy her findings .

blueyeduckstudios ~ This talented folk artist extraordinaire has been around the block, so to say, and known me (zJayne) online from my first art card (ACEO) and my first Altered Art Doll. I have found the support of other online artists to be instrumental in my own success. Sharing ideas, venues for promoting, and supporting each other with sincere affirmations . . . that's duckie for ya!

Clevelandhandmade ~ Here’s an Etsy street team I’m a proud member of, where all the members create handmade items and are basically from Cleveland and it’s surrounding areas. If you haven’t made a decision to buy handmade at every opportunity ie. birthdays, weddings, graduations and 'just because' reasons….then you haven’t found etsy yet. Search clevelandhandmade and find a little something for everyone on your list. The team is Smashing, we all RoCK!

Laundry ~ Not your mother's laundry woes…nopers, just head on over to this crisp, clear, easy to follow blog and check out Stella's talented writing as well. What a treat when I found laundry through LazyT'scrochet being featured on The Laundry.

TinaSeaMonster ~ I came across this part time journalist when she bought a tshirt bag from my etsy shop. She has her own shop and a blog that doesn’t pull any punches..says it like it is -yet with care and concern. I myself was touched by her respectful reaction to her new wall art... she also writes for Washington City Paper–Cut the Craft and I can usually tell it's her by her direct and fun approach to her writing.

And with that... here are the rules of the game:

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. (**Umm, I can't garantee what other people are gonna do. But, uh, I'll do my best!)

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
