ArteypicoWow I got recogized! Steph from vladthebatsattic (don't you love that name) gave me a virtual reward so now I have some rules to abide by to pass the torch:
WHoa!! As I was checking out the blogs I wanted to pass the award to I stumbled upon another award for me! I was looking at deryns blog and un- beknownst to me, she had also given me a little award! Arte y ironic!! So I will list blogs for all the awards. how exciting!

For the Brilliante Weblog: The winner can put the logo on their blog. Link to the person you received your reward from. Nominate at least 7 other blogs. Put links of those blogs on yours. Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated. Write an acceptance speech ala the Academy Awards(don't know about that).

Arte y Pico

is meant to be paid forward to five bloggers who you want to recognize for their creative talents, interesting material, and overall contribution to the blogger community...helping to make the world a better place, one blog post at a time! And now...the envelope please! (click to see their blogs):

Glad you enjoyed your award !
Using a torch is not so frightening ! I recommand Tim McCreight's Complete Metalsmith ( and a lot of practice ... for the torc I used the same solder you use with a soldering iron, it's easier ... just try on scrap metal .. and a small torch does the job perfectly!)

Well, thanks, my little artistic chickadee, and we do get back to Calif. at least once a year to visit kids. One is in northern and one is in southern part. I still love it there even if we did choose to leave it.
