Arte y Pico Award ~ Me? Thank You!

Yesterday my lovely friend Sue awarded me the Arte y Pico Award. Her journal pages and thoughts are in inspiration to me and you must visit her flickr pages to view the wonderful images she captures with her camera. Thank you Sue :o)
This award is for blogs filled with art and creativity ~ there are some rules attached to this award and in passing it on to others they are as follows;
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.
Here are the 5 wonderful blogs I have chosen whom I feel deserve this award for inspiring me.
Firstly to Judy I know you have been awarded this before but I can’t not include you because when I first started my blog your blog was and continues to be such a wonderful source of inspiration and colour and your kindness and personality shine through everything you do :o)
Secondly to Susan Lenz a wonderful fiber artist who is organizing what must be the largest fiber art ATC swap and exhibition which you can read all about here at Cyberfyber. I was delighted to be able to swap a fiber ATC and Postcard for one each of Susan’s
Next I send this award to Aileen a fab fiber artist who works with felt and fused fabrics & who started a wonderful flickr group called Handmade in Scotland inviting so many wonderful Scottish artists and creative people to join together & display their work.
The Lone Beader is my next Choice, a dedicated beader who has the patience of a saint and creates the most fabulous works of art. Watch her build up a picture from day to day Check out The Hijack & Fire Truck.
And to Julia a textile artist who’s day to day stitching and beautiful modern designs are always a delight to see check out her Etsy shop Materialised
I hope you all enjoy a visit to these blogs….

Studio Update:

After a few weeks of insulating, foiling, wiring, cladding, trimming, painting, painting & more painting!!! the studio is now at the moving in stage so I have started with the worktop area. The wooden drawer shelving came from my old area in the kitchen. I have brightened it up with a coat of paint...looks much nicer now. So many other things I have been saving from room changes in the house. The loft & shed have been housing a lot of the things that will be moving in here.... freeing up a lot of space too!

You can see lots more pictures on my flickr
