    german newbie says "hello"

    Hello everybody,

    my name is Uly and i´m 38 years old. I live in Germany and my everyday life is accompanied by my husband and my dog "Lotte" (a cheeky little bugger...).

    Creativity was always part of my life: i love making music (especially playing saxophone), sewing (i´m addicted to selfmade bags...), and creating little presents out of wonderful papers and embellishments. - Actually there never is enough time to realize all my ideas.

    I never was a scrapbooker though, ´til i found Ali´s and Katie´s blogs. It´s wonderful how they preserve all the special little moments of life.

    After taking about a hundred peeks in this forum´s gallery (it´s awesome!) i finally decided to try some digital scrapbooking myself. I´m afraid this will be my new addiction...

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    What a great little story to introduce yourself! You are very welcome here and yes, you're probably right - a new addiction has begun (I speak as a digital scrapbook junkie myself!). I'm sure you will have a great time - be sure to ask questions if you need to - there's always someone around here that can answer them! Good luck - and happy scrapping!

  14. So happy to see you here! Welcome, Uly to Designer Digitals. I love what you wrote as you introduced yourself to us . . . and especially that you already know that you will become addicted to digi scrapping. I think that I know that your are much like many of us here when you said "actually there never is enough time to realize all my ideas". I look forward to seeing more of you.

    P.S. We lived in Darmstadt for several years and so loved it there. Germany is one of the most beautiful places where we have ever traveled and are planning a trip back before too long.

    wow - i´m overwhelmed! thanks for your friendly welcome!

    you´re right: i´m already infected. today i spent three hours figuring out how to blend images. it looks so gorgeous on your pages.

    @anke: i live only 11/2 hours north from Wuppertal via A43 - in Münster! Verrückte Welt...

    @mollie: darmstadt is almost four hours south from where i live and i agree: the countryside round there is awesome - but you should come and see my hometown: it is smaller than darmstadt but one of the loveliest places in germany . perhaps i can catch some impressions and present them in the gallery.

  16. I think the closest we travel toward you was to Solingen, Dusseldorf and Cologne. Uly, I know that I am not the only one here who will love to see the countryside where you live Germany. Designer Digitals is a virtual travel book!!!
