Hi again from The Netherlands

Hi all, I've been reading and lurking here for quite some time now, and I think I've introduced myself before too, but that must have been ages ago, so I guess I'll do it again. smiley

I'm Marjan de With, a Dutchie, living in the North of Holland in a great town called Groningen. I'm 47 yo, have a 7 year old son and a husband (although we're not married but living together, I do like to call him that smiley ) I am a homecare worker, for 3/4 days a week and I love it.

I started digital scrapbooking and designing way back in 2008, had a blog about scrapbooking and lots of freebies because I never felt the need to sell anything but just wanted to share my designs. The blog had lots of visitors and it was really nice, but then my son was born in 2011 and I quit scrapping for a long, long, long time. I picked it up in between other hobbies but never really got into it anymore. Until last year I got a new printer and recently a new laptop too, I just picked it up again and found how relaxing and fun it was. Oh.. yes and timeconsuming. smiley I don't do a whole lot of designing anymore, just scrapping pictures for myself at the moment and sorting out all of the kits etc. on my computer. Hopefully I'll be able to share some of my designs at one point.

I do have lots of other hobbies, I love drawing and painting, making jewelry, watching Netflix etc. reading, going to the movies etc. etc.
It just means I'm never ever bored. I really like PixelScrapper, found lots of solutions for digiscrapping 'problems' on here and I like to see all of the beautiful work by the designers and members.

See ya on PS.

Welcome, Marjan! I'm delighted to have a longtime designer joining our community (or rather, it sounds like you've been part of the community for a while, but are making your formal introductions). We have so many fun opportunities here to share designs, through blog trains, designer challenges, the freebie forums, and the commons, so I hope you'll feel inspired to dabble in design again!

Thank you Violet!

hello Marjan! it's nice to meet you! love your avatar smiley

Welcome, Marjan! smiley

Thank you Marisa and Tammy!

Hello Myrjan!
Welcome and greetings from Germany - we live close to the border near Leer

Hi Gonda, thank you! That's indeed pretty close to where I live. Although we almost never 'cross' the border, the times we did were really nice. I've lived almost everywhere in The Netherlands, (originally from Friesland), but I really love Groningen, I'm not moving again any time soon.

welcome, Marjan!

Welcome, Marjan! smiley
