Pam from Gingerbread Snowflakes has just nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award, and I am so excited! Thanks so much, Pam, for thinking of me. This means a lot.
First thing I have to do is write 7 things fellow bloggers might not know about me.

So here goes...

1. I was born in New York to Puertorrican parents, lived in Puerto Rico from age 8 to 21, married a Mexican, and have lived in Mexico ever since.

2. I was a gymnast. That's how I met my husband, he was a coach in Puerto Rico (he sumersaulted into my life, hehehe).

3. My Mom is a famous Yoga teacher in Puerto Rico (Her name is Lollyana). I miss her so much...haven't seen her in 4 years (sniff sniff).

4. Although I love Puerto Rico very much, I feel Mexico is my first home at this moment. I love the people, the food, the country, everything. That's why I started this blog. I think in "Mexican" now.

5.I love to read. I can read both in Spanish and English, but in this aspect I prefer reading in English.

6. I also love crafts! I wish I could dedicate more time creating things...knitting, sewing, woodworking, anything!

7.When I was small, I dreamed of having a Pen Pal. For some reason, there was nothing of the sort in Puerto Rico. Now, so many years later, and with this bloggy thingy, I am getting to know so many people from so many places. I dare say I even have made "good friends" with a few fellow bloggers. I cherish friendship very much, and it is very important to me.
So now you know I much I appreciate having all of you read my blog. Thank you!

Now I have to nominate 7 bloggers. These are the blogs:

African Kelli : One of the most creative women I have met on the blogsphere. Her recipes are awesome, her crafts are inspiring, and her thoughts are touching.

Glenrosa Journeys: Arizona through the lens of Candace. Beautiful images of this incredible state.

Tobycat Creations: This crafty lady, Char, teaches her girls so many beautiful patchwork projects. And she posts how to make them.

Sew Chic and Unique: This lovely woman inspires other on making a new sewing creation every two weeks. Maybe you would like to join her.

Kitty Garden Makes:
I have been following this blog for a very short time, but I LOVE all the projects it features!

Viva Luna: Through Luna's blog we can visit Germany. Her photographs are really beautiful!!

Sofia's Sketchbook: A very creative woman. She paints and sews (gotta love her owls). Her artwork is very original.

So there are the 7 nominees. Very difficult to choose with so many creative bloggers out there. Hope you go visit each one, and enjoy their uniqueness.

And now the nominees have to do the following (of course, if they want to):

1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award and link to their blog.
2. Copy the award to your blog.
3. List 7 things people don't know about you.
4. Nominate 7 bloggers, link to their site and leave a comment on their blog advising them of the nomination.

And if you want to take a beautiful trip though some of U.S.A's incredible national parks, visit Pam's entry. Makes me want to take my backpack, and follow her steps...thanks, Pam!

Wishing you all a lovely evening!!

Wow...I'm speechless, this is my first award!
Thank you so much Angie!

I think your blog really deserves this award. It is so interesting, we can learn many wonderful things about life in Mexico.
Unfortunately my english blog still isn't so extensive, because it's not so easy for me to write in englisch. But this award is an encouragement for me!

Your "7 things" are impressive, a Boricua born in New York and living in Mexico. I wish I could visit New York and Mexico some day.

And there is one thing we have in common, your #6!

Muchos saludos!

Angie, you are so deserving of a much bigger award! You have no way of knowing how much your friendship means to me and how much I appreciate and enjoy your sharing so much about your life in Mexico. I feel my life has been enriched by your presence in it.

I am very excited to go visit your nominees! All new to me!

Angie said...

Oh, Pam, thank you so much for your kind words. I feel the same. Thank you for your friendship, Gingerbread Snowflakes is a second "home" to me.
