Why I Love DMarie....

Why I Love DMarie
I have been scrapbooking for three years. I have a lot of friends and family that enjoy scrapping, however I I have a strong thirst for more knowledge about this wonderful craft. In the quest for more knowledge, I discovered that there was an entire board devoted to my passion. I began frequenting the DMarie board almost one year ago.
Dmarie has since become a part of my daily routine. I check the board several times a day in search for scrapbooking ideas, product reviews, layout ideas and poetry. Iíve actually formed friendships with some of the wonderful scrappers who come to Dmarie.
If I ever question whether or not a product, a book or technique is worth my time, I simply post the question to the board. The Dmarierís have yet to fail me! I learned quickly not to purchase the doodle cutter because of itís poor quality. I learned that chocolate and scrapbooking go hand in hand. I also learned about Scrapbookerís Dream Vacations from someone who had attended one and am preparing for my third week-end getaway!
Iíve never frequented non-scrapbooking boards so it is such a blessing to be able to post non-scrapbooking questions to women that share my same interests. Iíve found recipes that Iíve been wanting to prepare from cooks on the board (Mmmm Taco Soup), learned about great websites that answer health related questions and gotten caught up on missed episodes of favorite television shows. (ER and Survivor to name a couple!)
Iíve also discovered what wonderful people come to Dmarie first hand. I had a scrapbook nightmare happen to me where I lost precious scrapbooking tools, embellishments and albums. The friends I made on Dmarie came right to the rescue. I was flooded with emails, die cuts, stickers and other supplies to help me recover what I lost. I now get to reciprocate by helping someone a member of the board is collecting supplies for. Dmarie has a real sense of community.
We are a cyber family.
Iím very thankful for the opportunity to be apart of the Dmarie message board. Itís the highlight of my day! *‹*
