Thread: Another German

  1. Another German

    Hello there.

    I discovered this site a while ago chasing some Ali Edwards brushes, but only now decided to jump right in. My name's Inga or Ginger_79 in the digi world. I'm turning 32 in December (When did that happen? How? I'm still constantly amazed, I'm a grown-up now) and I'm living with my BF in the West of Germany, near Cologne. No kids, no pets. Just us and an occasional spider crawling by. But I have a big family clan to keep us busy.

    I'm originally a chemist/biochemist, but I'm now working in the pharmaceutical industry in pharma packaging. Sounds boring, but it's actually a new challenge every day. BF is the one with the "cool" job, as he's in the computer games industry.

    I stumbled over digi scrapping by accident, when I was googling for a normal scrap album a few years ago. I never did paper before, though it has slowly been growing on me over the last months. The gallery here is a real eye opener. Especially as it "klicked" for me looking at the layouts and the supplies. That a look I adored for ages, is probably not best done with just kits, but requires a nice tool box of basic elements as well. So here's to shopping!

    I'm exited getting to know you all a bit better in the future.

    Welcome to DD! You found a wonderful online family here! Can't wait to know you better and see some of your creations in the gallery! And, wow... I must say that your English is superb! I took two years of German in high school (a LONG time ago!) so I don't remember much... except one funny song we used to sing every day! Glad you found us here at DD!

    Aww, thanks. But I'm speaking English at home, BF is from Nothern Ireland. So my life's pretty much a 50:50 of English and German.

    Oh, Inga... you mentioned in your comment on my Christmas page about shopping -- You will love December! There is a brand new item every day on special... they add so much to your pages! Every item is a must buy since the next day it will go to full price. It's my favorite time of year here at DD!

  12. Good morning, Inga. We lived in Darmstadt for three years while in the military . . . I so loved Germany with it's beauty and friendly people. It is so nice to have you with us here at Designer Digitals . . . I know that you are going to love it here. The shopping is terrific, the gals here are the best and the knowledge and sharing are superb.

    Oh yay! Like a digi scrapping advent calendar. Good to know for adding to my DD stock.

    But I must protest against the Ruhrgebiet, Anke. We are part of the Rheinland, even though the rest of Germany pretty much considers the whole state of Nordrhein-Westfalen to be the Ruhrgebiet.

    We were practically neighbors! My DH is from Wattenscheid and he still has family there.
    We gave up our caravan a few years ago and now retired in Canada BUT I love Germany (and obviously Germans)!

    You know it's funny, after I wrote that I was thinking about the very same thing LOL. Oh well, Rheinland is good too To me anything close to Wuppertal is part of the Ruhrgebiet
