Thursday-decorating day

Today I am off round a friends house to help her decorate, any excuse to wield a paint brush I say! So no crafting today nor probably tomorrow.
We are going to attempt the downstairs hallway and two small bedrooms downstairs. Magnolia walls and some white gloss work, just to freshen things up,oh and doing the ceilings too,so I shall have more white in my hair lol, at least I don't need a ladder or chair to reach,being tall does have it's bonuses,sometimes.
Right she will be here in a moment to got o town to pick up materials, so I shall say bye for now. Jinny x

Arte y pico Award

Arte y pico Award

Today, i was honoured to be given the Arte y pico Award, by my very dear friend Margaret (Boy I wish I lived closer) To say i was overwhelmed is an understatement, and am truly grateful to you Margaret. We have never 'met' but hope to one day soon.(or would that be a bad idea) hehehehhee I am truly honoured to have you as a friend Margaret.Now I have to nominate 5 blogs who I think deserve this award too.BUT ... my winners then are requested to do the following :

1) You have to pick 5 blogs who 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 the blog to be visit by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and the link to the blog that has given her or him award itself.

4) Award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "arte y pico" blog (linked in my title) so everyone will know the origin of this award. (Cut and paste the info into your blog to make things easier)So who do i choose, well this must be the hardest thing ever for me to do. I have made such great and talented artistic friends in the past year, and would dearly love to give each and every one of you an award. But alas this is not possible.

The first award goes to Cindy Talented in more ways then one,with her green fingers and her artwork.
Second award goes to Maureen, a talented lady,who amazes me with the creative things she does.
Thirdly Angela A lovely lady who is talented but also brilliant at digital stuff too.
Fourthly Paula Bird A talented young lady,who is good at drawing and also encaustic art
And last but by no means least a friend from the Internet who is a scrapaholic and fellow papercrafter Joanne

There are loads of folks I would like to say A BIG THANKS for daily inspiration and the odd kick up the butt every now and again.
