Weekly Wrap Up – April Fool’s Edition

*runs in and skids to a stop*
*flails wildly as new shoes stick onto the floor but the body keeps moving*

Oh hi!! Sorry, I’m little frantic today. I had this big idea to do a practical joke on y’all but you know what? I can’t.

I can’t be mean like that. I mean,who’d believe me if I told you that we had a new guest designer.

That there’s an awesome new buffet out.

That new jobs have been given out.

Oh, wait, that has happened :O

I’m the Team Lead for the Ad team. Oh holy something or other. That means, if the daily downloads are late, blame me. If something needs to be shared, contact me. Ach! What to do. I’m SO honored that Shannon asked me to do this so very important job. HOPEFULLY no one caught my mistake yesterday where I accidentally posted a post too early, ūüėÜ I think I caught it in time, and made some changes to the permalink, so HOPEFULLY no one got it too soon ūüėÄ

So, that’s that news. ūüėÄ

I asked her to tell us a little bit about herself and this is what she had to say:

 My name is Maaike, designer of Find Your Bliss Designs and I am 38, living in the Netherlands with my husband Pierre and our two sons, Damion and Quincy.(17 and 11)

I have been a paperscrapper for many years, worked in two paperscrapstores here in Holland, teached workshops, did it all…till I decided to go digi about 2 or 3 years ago and totally fell in love with it!

About a year ago I started thinking about becoming a designer, because that way I could mix up my digital creativity with my real life creations and since August 2011 , I started designing under the name Find Your Bliss Designs and I can’t imagine anything more fun than creating kits and templates!

 Here are just some of her goodies!  Make sure you check out her entire store for even more!

I’m so glad she is here with us this month! ¬†I see great things ahead for all of you!

Speaking of great things (gosh, I’m the master of transitions) I have your new Daily Download for you! ¬†First let me show you the March Daily Download by GingerScraps!¬†

We have such a great month ahead of us! ¬†I hope to see you all around the forum and I’ll definitely see you all on Friday for our new releases! ¬†(PS – I heard a rumor that there is a freebie in Valarie Ostrom’s store….)
