Blog Award

That Christopher at Designs by CK, has passed on a blog award to me! He has the funniest series of Easter cartoons/giggles, that you need to go give his blog a look to see them as well as his newest offering on eBay, "All Seer" (very cool piece). Such a talented guy I am thrilled to know him and to say I have the privilege of owning a few of his pieces now! He also revamped his website as well, and he did a fabulous job showcasing his work!! Talent, shear and utter talent!

Okay, I am suppose to tell you 7 fast Laurie facts (I don't think I have told these before):

1. I use to be a CPR instructor for the American Heart Association.

2. I have actually performed CPR on multiple heart attack victims.

3. I use to be a registered Emergency Medical Technician for the Fire Department and local hospital.

4. I was on our local Fire Department for 10 years working both EMS (Emergency Medical Services/Ambulance) and as a Fire Ground Support Operations team member (I was a Truckee), and yes, I have actually fought fire multiple times from structure to grass fires.

5. I was the Public Information Officer for the Fire Department for several years.

6. I was the Emergency Management Coordinator for our city and county.

7. My father was the fire chief in my home town as I was growing up and inspired me to do all of the above.

See, you just never know what you might learn about someone!! HA! Isn't life interesting and a great adventure.

Okay, my 7 blog picks:

PJ's Talking: PJ's work makes me happy and I love her altered books!!

Yoborobo: That Pam is amazing and I love reading her blog...she just makes me smile.

The Gourd Queen: Linda has got her blog up and running and I want to give her a huge pat on the back for taking the leap!!

The Hermitage: I'm not sure how they live in their little home on wheels, but Rima is bright, articulate, chuck full of artistic talent and always a fabulous read from England.

Whimsical Endeavors: Love Pea and it looks like Sonia from Dark Raven beat me to the punch on the award!!

Back Porch Pickins: Tonya always has something nice to show you and to say!! (Thanks Sonia for picking up my error!! )
