Aw, shucks...

break free

Brenda at Musings by Artslice was kind enough to gift me with the Brilliante Weblog Premio, 2008 award back in early November (is that logo misspelling intentional?? a little tongue-in-cheek, you're not so brilliant after all...???...see where my mind goes...) and I am just now getting around to accepting it. Part of my hesitation has been that old boogie low self-esteem which makes it difficult for me to take in a compliment. But here goes...I've added the logo to my blog! And seeing that 2008 is nearly over I'd best pass this award along to 7 others before the new year arrives!

So here are the 'rules' of acceptance...

1. Put logo on blog
2. Add link to person who awarded you
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Add links to those blogs on you blog
5. Leave messages for you nominees on their blogs
6. Participation is voluntary, of course!
7. Have fun...honoring the bloggers who inspire you regularly

It was tough to choose - I decided to stick with art blogs. Here are seven that inspire me for different reasons that I visit regularly - a real mixed bag of treats! Thankyou all for the time and thoughtfulness you put into your work and share with us on your blogs!
