Thread: Hi there!

  1. Hi there!

    Hi, I was nosing the forum and decided to not lurk, but say hi ASAP!
    My name is Maaike, I am a former paperscrapper who turned digi 2 years ago, but still like to get my hands dirty once in a while!
    I live in the Netherlands with my husband and two sons and 2 weird cats!

    Well, off to take a better peek in the forum now!

    Hello! I have been a paper scrapper up until now. I am just now making the switch. But I also like to get my hands "dirty" so will probably still paper scrap once in a while. This place ROCKS!!

    Welcome Maaike! I never paper scrapped but since starting digital scrapping I do like to make the occasional hybrid project and dabble in art journaling. 2 weird cats? I'm a cat lover and believe that is just a part of their nature and charm!

    Welcome to DD Maaike! What a fascinating name, I love it! I think it's the spelling that makes it different, I have seen it with just one "a" or an "e".... anyway, it's great to have you here, can't wait to see your pages!

  17. Wow, I shure do feel right at home! What a warm welcome! So good to read there are more former paper scrappers here and weird cat lovers!hahaha
    And Anke, are you dutch too?? Anke shure is a dutch name!
    In Germany some woman are called Maike with one a and some in Holland are written as Meike. But my version is the most common here I think!

    I hope to make some pages to put into the gallery soon! I have so little hours in one day and so much to do!

    Welcome Maaike, and I know how you feel. So much to do, so little time! DD is a great place to be and I hope you have some time soon to join in. Looking forward to "seeing" you in the gallery!

  19. Nice to meet you... I came from the paper world too.... and I still do a mix of scrapbook pages.... Digital will change both scrapbook worlds and make both better!

    Welcome... from another newbie!

    (Wow... the Netherlands... not very far from Belgium, but I don't go there often enough... and... loving your nickname, it reminds me of a character of a great novel I read a few years ago... "Ontaarde Moeders" door Renate Dorrestein...) Well, anyway, I hope you will have a great time on the forum and in this community!

    Welcome! I am a former paper scrapper as well. In fact, I turned digi by accident when I stumbled across some classes in photoshop and had so much fun that I never went back! We're glad that you're here and really to look to getting to know you and seeing your work!

  27. What's up everyone, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say hey. Hopefully I posted this in the right section
