Pamela Smerker 2013

Hi! I’m Pamela Smerker, the girl behind Pamela Smerker Designs (formerly Party Starters).  I am a self taught graphic designer (if there is such a thing...).  I LOVE to CREATE!  This is a place where I post anything I’m passionate about and inspired by. 
I live in the burbs of Littleton with my husband, Al, our three AMAZING kiddos and our little dog, Gracie.  I am always open to change, as long as it's POSITIVE of course! In fact the direction and design of this blog has seen many changes! What can I say, I get bored and like to mix things up! 
I have been blogging for almost 10 years on several different blogs including this one (which is going to be 6 in 2015 GASP!). In addition to blogging here on PSD, I create little felt creatures called, Squatles with my oldest son that we sell in an Etsy shop. We also have a little blog where we share easy craft projects and free printables. 

I am the cofounder and at times a design contributor to D & P Celebrations. I was also the cofounder and contributor to a little blog called P.S. Make It Your Own (PSMIYO for short), where we shared decorating, recipes and crafting ideas.  I was the Editor in Chief of Polka Dot Balloon magazine. The magazine was a year long project to share beautiful celebrations and entertaining ideas created by me and a whole lot of my wonderful and talented friends through a fun and different type of media.

My work has been featured  from MarthaStewart.com to HGTV to Paper Crafts Magazine. I also won two MAJOR coloring contests as a kid, (a $5 cash prize as well as 4 tickets to Disney on Ice)  which is kind of a big deal! lol!! I love to be the center of attention, but am embarrassed when I am.  I am a nerd fighter.
When all is said and done... I love my family & friends, I love creating, I love sharing , but mostly I love being a dork! 
DFTBA & of course Hugs!
