Welcome to my Blog!

I am Lisa Bluhm Mrs. Pacific Northwest 2010-2011. I am competing in March for the title of Mrs. Washington. The Mrs. Washington Pageant is about making a difference. As a contestant I volunteer my time and talents to serve charities and organizations. I am also an active participant in my community. I am passionate about many different organizations and leave myself open to be able to support or participate in as many as I can.

My platform is called "Unlock Your Potential". It has always been my passion to inspire and encourage others to discover their goals or dreams and then teach them the steps to achieve success. When I hear people say I could never do that, I am not talented or anything that is negative towards their capabilities I feel called to action to help them see they have the potential to do or be anything they want to be. It may not be the same goals or dreams someone else has but their own personal challenges that lie within them. Once they realize they have the potential and they can achieve their dreams they are on their way to achieving success in their life. It can be as simple as getting their house organized or running a marathon. I am able to use my personal experiences in trials and triumphs as examples to encourage and inspire them on their journey. Throughout the year I will be featuring different peoples stories and sharing how they have unlocked their potential. Will you be one of them? Contact me with your story I would love to hear about it!

It is my desire to be Mrs. Washington so that I may represent the married women of our state. I consider it an honor and a responsibility. I take this role seriously. With my 22 years of marriage and a lifetime of experiences I am ready to continue fulfilling my role as a leader and a mentor. As Mrs. Washington I will have the opportunity to reach out to even more people in our state sharing my platform and have more opportunities to volunteer and bring awareness to non profit organizations that make our state so great.

I have unlocked my own potential in many areas of my life. Competing in marathons and triathalons, leading women's groups, leading children's groups, coaching teams and starting my own business. After being a stay at home mom for several years I took my passion for creating soldered art and shared it with others. My company Simply Swank llc was born! I developed my own technique and product line that is now sold in stores globally. I am also the author of Simple Soldered Jewelry and Accessories, the host and instructor of Simply Solder DVD and am currently writing a new book.

My church New Bridge Community is awesome! They really strive to be a part of the community around us and participate in events that are important to the people. They hosted their first kids fun run today to raise money for orphaned kids in Haiti. The kids ran a marked out course in different age groups. It was a hot day but they all made it through. The younger kids had to have an adult accompany them, I got to run with my niece Tehya. She is a fast little gal! We had to do 6 laps and 3 laps into it she was ready to quit! I used all my positive talk to keep her going but it might of been the promise of ice cream at the finish line that really got her through!

Tomorrow is the Capital City Marathon, a big event in our area. We have runners doing the 5K, 1/2 marathon and full marathon. The service was dedicated to the runners tomorrow. I will be helping to hand out medals at the finish line. Due to a knee injury I do not get to participate in the run but hopefully next year! I Ran the Capital City Marathon 2 years in a row. It is an awesome experience.
