Nook Tribute - Danielle de Konink

Today Nook Tribute blog post is hosted by Danielle de Konink:

On one hand I’m feeling a little excited to have a guest post on the Nook blog. But on the other hand, the reason for this post makes me sad. It feels like a goodbye note to my online home…
I found out about My Scrapbook Nook in summer 2011, during the Design Team call. I entered the forum and felt so welcome that I never ever wanted to leave. Before the summer of 2011 I have had a scrappy break for a couple of years, just because things in life happen, not because I didn’t like to scrap anymore. It felt kind of scary to jump into the scrapbook world again, things changed during my absence. Brands were gone, new brands were taking over, styles and trends changed, my stash became retro and lots and lots of new products were to be found in stores. So it all felt a little overwhelming. I was so happy that I had found the Nook, the members were so friendly and the gallery so inspiring. It just took me a little while to get back in business and I have to thank you all for that!
The Nook members feel like a second family, I love the support of each other. It doesn’t matter if you want to talk about scrappy stuff or want to share happy or sad moments in your personal life, there is always someone around the world that wants to hear your story and cheer you on or cheer you up. I feel so fortunate to have made such wonderful friends from all over the world, all thanks to this loving online home. Unfortunately I haven’t met any of you in real life yet, but I still keep hoping that it will happen one day.
Thanks again my friends for this wonderful place and I truly hope to keep in touch with you!
