I am super honored, happy and delighted with My Open Sketchbook! She has given me the Premio Dardos Award!! (You can imagine me performing a happy dance!) But wait, what is the Premio Dardos Award? It is an award that acknowledges the values that bloggers show on their blogs in transmitting cultural, ethical, literal and personal values. This award was created to befriend and promote bloggers while adding value to the web through expressing gratitude to them. In short, it is a great honor to be awarded a Premio Dardos Award!!

Rules are very easy:

  • Thank the blog that nominated you and link to the post in which they nominated you.
  • Choose your favorite bloggers and give them the award! Also, let them know why they get this awesome award.
  • And finally, let your readers know three fun facts about you.

So, these are my nominees:

(I’m not sure about how many blogs I can nominate or not. I decided to go with five of my favorite ones.)

Natalie Patalie: if you want to discover new books and comics, this is the blog where to stop by. Not only is super cute, you will also find a new world and new suggestions about books. Plus gaming and personal stuff. You can also find super cute x stylish x geeky giveaways and projects to fall in love with. This blog rocks.

The Nifty Nerd: all about geek culture plus great ideas on how to DIY at home. Oh! And the recipes! You have to try them out! Yummy and geeky. I also love all the DIY ideas, although I must admit that I love reading how to do stuff more than trying them out. LOL This blog is a pool of geeky culture and great geek ideas. And that’s why I love it so much!

Oh Sweet Samsara: don’t check this blog if you don’t want ideas on how to crash your credit card. I am serious! (I always say that to myself… but I end up checking it out because she has this awesome posts with all these super cute selections of geeky items that you fall in love with.) I also love the Fandom Friday posts. Oh Sweet Evil Samsara!


Her Story Arc: females of the world, unite! Need to know everything about geeks and women? This is it! I love this blog because I always find new perspectives and what’s going on into the geek world with us: females. If you’re a feminist and want that men and women are treated in equal terms as equals, then you will love this blog as much as I do.


From Girlie to Nerdy: if you have been resisting your geeky environment all of your life and finally have joined the geek tribe, then you’re going to love this new blog. I enjoy it a lot because you can read the great journey into geekdom and fandom of someone who was… immune? Plus her Fandom Fridays are super cool.

Now, my three fun facts (or paranoias):

1. I read the Tarot and I designed some oracle decks.

I like modern Tarot cards, and I read them. I say modern because the old designs aren’t cute and well… I like the cute ones. Though I have many decks, I always end up using the same one (Druid Craft Tarot). I also read the Lenormand, and I even designed some decks (my first one was Alice in Wonderland Petit Lenormand). They come in handy to spook people during Halloween in a kawaii way. So, if you happen to visit me around Halloween you’ll provably end up eating pumpkin-related food while staring at some cards while I read them to you 😉

2. I still bow while talking on the phone, before crossing the street or when I want to apologize…

There’s nothing I can do to prevent this habit that I acquired while living during 8 years in Japan. Three years after returning home I still do them! If I am conscious, I will provably think about not bowing… but I know that I do it when I see other people’s faces. Damn, did it again! I also use other Japanese gestures for communication and I don’t realize that I do it till it might be too late… So, my gestures are all messed up. I sometimes think that I must look like an anime character… Oh, well, that’s life!

3. I have interesting shipping tastes.

If you’ve been reading me for a while, this comes to no surprise at all. But if you’ve just pop up here… well… I do ship controversy. For some reason I tend to ship what others think it’s a big nope or couples that fire controversy all over. For example: Thorki, Wincest, Wincestiel, TaserTricks, Snape/Hermione, Sabriel… The list goes one, and there is no real pattern. I only know that people around me end up like Dean in the gif above.

    Bwahahahah that gif! Fantastic. I think it’s so cool you read Tarot! I used to do it all the time in high school, and just kind of stopped when I went to college and never picked it up again. I would totally collect Tarot decks just to look at the artwork though…there are so many amazing ones out there!

    • xDDDD I love weird gifs :p Oooh you read the Tarot too? Cool! I think that I already have too many decks, but if I like new ones I end up buying them LOL They’re also perfect for art prompts or writing prompts when you’re stuck 😉
      I’m glad you liked the post! Again, thank you for nominating me!

  • Ha! I should go by Sweet Evil Samsara, I love that:P Thanks so much Pepi!! That’s two awards from you now, I’ll have to dedicate a post to all things Pepi soon<3
    I'm super into Tarot, so I think it's awesome that you're into that too! I actually kinda like the old school designs, but I agree that they aren't exactly cute. Have you seen the Sailor Moon deck by sillabub429 on DeviantArt? I totally wish those were real!

    • xDDDD Ahahaha you made me laugh :p Oooooh! “All things Pepi” sounds good!!! <3 Thanks! I love Tarot!!! But yeah, I only go with the cute decks mostly because I love the designs 😀 And now I go to DeviantArt to check the Sailor Moon deck!!! :)))))))))

  • This is the first time I’ve heard of this particular award. Very neat -thank you for the nomination!

    • Yay! 😀 I hope you enjoy the award!!

  • Omg that gif at the end?! Hahah! I don’t watch Supernatural so I have no idea what’s happening, but I like it.

    • Oooh! You have to watch Supernatural!! EVERYTHING HAPPENS!!! You’ve got vampires, ghosts, zombies, demons, angels, armageddons… it’s endless!! Plus you’ve got a bunch of sexy guys on screen! 😉 I do recommend the show!!!!

      And it’s super fun!!! xDDDDD (you also cry sometimes but there are too many funny thingys too 😉 )

      • LOL it’s definitely on my to-watch list! But so are a lot of other things is the problem ;_;

        • xDDDD Yeah, Supernatural has everything, including that xDDD Best gifs ever!!! Muahahhaha!
          yeah, too many shows on the list. What I do is to create a schedule and choose what to watch during dinner time 😀 So, it’s funnier that way… I think I should blog about that :p

  • I just laugh-cried a little at that SPN gif :’D No judgement here, though – that’s the magic of it, you can pick whoever you want to ship. I love the aesthetics of Tarot cards, although I’m mostly into the very, very ooooold kind (or you know, reproductions). And I think it’s so sweet that you still bow according to Japanese culture 🙂

    • xDDDD Yeah, that gif is epic xDDDDD I love crazy gifs! For some reason my shipping preferences tend to be weird for the rest xDDDDD Oooh are you collecting the old Tarot repros?? I know that can be highly addictive!!!!
      Ooooh I do more than just bow Japanese-style LOL I realized yesterday that I’ve been translating literally some Japanese words so I really sound weird xDDDDD I’m doomed!!!
      BTW, another gif I like:

  • Danielle Knapp

    That’s awesome you design your own tarot decks. I was really into tarot when I was late teens/early 20’s and I still have a few decks. Thanks for the nomination as well – just did all my answers for you 🙂 http://fromgirlietonerdy.com/2015/09/too-cool-for-school-blog-awards/

    • Awww 😀 😀 Cool! We’ve got many Tarot lovers 😉 And, I’ll read your answers in a while <3 <3
