The Arte Y Pico Award

I received this award from Linda at 'Parker's Paradise'. Thank you so much Linda, I am thrilled to receive this and thrilled to know you. You have the gift of really just enveloping others in your kindness and giving them a sense of comfort and home. I love your blog and the words that you leave behind when you visit keep me going. You always seem to know what to say.

This the Arte Y Pico award and I did a little research on it and it is to award people who inspire others with their creative energy and spirit. I believe this is Spanish, so any of my Spanish speaking friends, please correct me if I do not have the spelling correct. I saw it spelled so many different ways.

This is what Linda said about me which is so kind.

Kim at the Seventh Diamond. She is outgoing, generous, compassionate and always available when you need that shoulder. She works constantly to help families with their adoption needs, often putting their needs before her own. Her blog always looks beautiful. She has a flair for design and a quick wit. She deserves this award much more than I do.

I am supposed to pass this along to 5 people.

1) Daleea at 'Jewels of My Heart' has a very creative soul and uses her talents to help others. I love her blog 'One Child at A Time' that she developed and is using to raise money for 'The Starfish Foster Home'. She is sewing daily to provide items for the auction. She is just truly a source of inspiration to me and blesses me with her friendship and keeps me grounded in the Lord with her comfort and advice.

2) Meredith Teagarden at 'A Mother Singing' is also an amazingly creative person. She is an excellent seamstress who is also using her talents to help the Starfish orphans. She has a heart for children and a desire to work hard to make a difference in this world. I have not linked this blog as it is private, but truly it is a treasure, she is an excellent writer also.

3) Verna the Blogfairy at 'The Bigs and Littles'. Verna is my right hand in everything that I do. She is always supporting and helping to develop the fundraisers and baby showers. She is a wizard with webpages and graphics and donates her talents to raise money for adopting families.

4) Robin at 'Red Thread Stitches' is an amazingly talented seamstress who in the midst of needing to raise money to bring her own child home has always come forward to donate funds to families and children who are in need. She is truly an amazing inspiratation.

5) Debbie at 'Pixel Fairy Princess'. I am just getting to know Debbie and I can tell you that she is an amazingly gifted and giving person. She has raised a large amount of money for the Starfish babies through donating her photography skills and still continues to give. If you haven't seen her photographs, you really should go and spend some time on her blog.
