Thanks for stopping by! My
name is Pam Schommer and Iím married to the sweetest guy, for nearly 32 years
now. We have two adorable long haired
Chihuahuas, a girl named Moo and a boy named Sparky. (The pictures shown
below are from when we first got them.) I have enjoyed crafts since I painted my
first piece of plaster when I was 18 and I was hooked. I have come a long way since then. I have done a lot of different crafts. I taught myself to decorative paint. I started making wreaths, swags, and all kinds
of floral arrangements for many years now. Many of my items are hand made by me
including beautiful ribbon into bows
,feather picks, shell picks, bird nests,and I dry my own items. Nature provides
for my one of a kind birdhouses. My main interests are; decorative painting, poly
clay characters, handmade floral arrangements and of course my unique decorative
However, my real claim to fame is I won a national craft contest for
one of my bird houses which was chosen by Linda Petersonís Designs. I was over the moon when she contacted me and informed me that out
of all of the entries, she had chose my handmade birdhouse. And if that wasnít
enough she featured me on her website. I
have made many things for friends and family through the years. My sister Peggy
lives close by and last year for her family I made food art for everybodyís
birthday. The year before I wrote very long poems for each of them, funny stuff,
and to let them all know how much I love them. It was a lot of fun, with a lot
of laughs. LIFE IS SHORT EAT CHEESCAKE!
Iíll throw some pictures up and I hope that
you enjoy them.

Oh gosh.....This was
such a hard decision! All the entries I received were great and fantastic and
awesome. But unfortunately, I can only pick one. So here goes.......
The winner is PAM S. with her entry of this birdhouse. It actually fits a
couple of categories - It's GREEN made from natural materials found in her yard
and It's full of recycled materials as well.
Here's Pam's story, she writes, "This
my birdhouse I have made from recycled barn wood from an old milk house we tore
down on our family property . I then stripped the wood in pieces and built this
bird house . I dried all the flowers out of my garden. I gathered milk pods and
grasses such as wheat from our field when I walked my dog. My husband bought me
cherries and I saved and dried the seeds. If you notice I used a piece of
ginger and dried it for the front along with acorn seeds from my tree and dried
queen anne's lace - too
many flowers and fruits to mention that i dried myself, oranges and apples you
name it, I have it. If it looks salvageable I will collect it and do something
with it. I love it so much... I love nature crafts and recycle many things I
even made a birdhouse and covered it with lobster shells that we ate and saved thru the years.... " - It's signed "Craftily
I think this little birdhouse captures spring. I know after the hard winter, we
are all longing for spring and WARMER weather to appear. Today is a beautiful
day in the Ozarks and the birds are out singing.
Beautiful job Pam! Congratulations! Your Book will be on it's way to you soon!
