Last week I had the sweet surprise of receiving an award from Karen of "A Scrapbook of Inspirations" It is called the "Arte Y Pico Award". Thank you so much Karen. Congrats to you for being chosen, as you are so deserving. I will try and live up to this special honor and I am so thrilled to pass it on to 5 more very special blog friends.

The rules are as follows~~

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for creativity, design, materials used, and their contribution to the community no matter what the language.

2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his/her blog to be visited.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and the name and link to the blog that awarded it.

4.The award winner and the one who has given the award have to show the link to "Arte Y Pico"

5. Show these rules.

JEN r. is so creative and full of fun. She puts great designs together from wonderful treasures she finds. Her bubbling personality really comes across in her lovely blog and home. She always inspires me when I visit.

BECKY is a very accomplished artist and wonderful illustrator. Her love for life sharing her God given talents and Christianity is a true joy to share. Her words are always inspiring. Her artwork reflects her awesome talent.

DEBBIE KAY is just a delight to visit. From her very contagious smile to her gorgeous curly hair, she has captured the look so many of us long for. Her eye for detail is awesome. Her treasures shared make you want to go on a day filled hunt for goodies to redesign.

RANDI is a dear friend. Not only is she an amazing artist, but her designs using yarn and felt are over the top terrific. She is from Norway living in Texas and her blog is so enchanting to read and view her creative designs from her talented hands.

DEVONIA is another Texas shabby artist and her hand painting is something to behold. You can get lost in her roses and her creative talents. She offers a beautiful trip in the land of romantic with her paint brush.

I encourage everyone to stop by these lovely bloggers and share in their days filled with creativity. You will have a special journey.
Thank you again dear Karen for this award, it has been so fun visiting others who also received the award.

Blessings to all from Celestina Marie~~ See you again soon!!

Celeste, thank you so much. I've seen awards on other blogs and thought it was such a generous, thoughtful way of sharing and supporting one another but this is the first time I've ever received one. I genuinely appreciate it and will try to seek out others who have yet to receive one and pass the award on to them. Your write-up about me and my work was so kind - I'll be on a cloud for a week. I also will check out each of your recepients. I know I will love them all. My very, very bests, Devonia
