About me challenge

Wendy (wishin4moretime on 2Peas) challenged us to do an About Me entry on december 5th. showing 3 pictures and answering specific questions. So here it is:

My name is Birgit, I don't really have nicknames except for the short version Bir. My name seems to be a little difficult for a lot of people though, if been called Brigitte, Brigit, Bridget, Birgitta and much more... but Birgit it is!

I just turned 38 last week and I'm quit happy with this age!

I was born in Bremen, Germany, having a Dutch mother and a German father.

We moved to the Netherlands when I was about half a year old. I now live in a little village called Winsum in the North of the Netherlands.

I have 3 beautiful kids, Anne (girl, 11 years old), Lennart (boy, 10 in 2 days) and Marlijn (girl, just 3)

About my favorite holiday tradition, hhmmm...I guess that must be right after I 've put the lights in the Christmas tree, Christmas music is filling the room and my kids decorate the tree and I watch them hanging all the balls and ornaments on just one branch :)

I started scrapping a little more than 2 years ago after my SIL who lived in the States for a year told me about it and I can't imagine ever to stop doing it.

I was a few times published in Dutch magazines and was a co-writer for 2 Dutch scrapbooking books. My first American publication was in Memory Makers Scrapbook Idea Gallery 6, oct. 05 and there will be a LO of me in Cantata Books Sensational Seasonal Pages (coming out spring 2006)
I would LOVE to get published in CK., I submit a lot but no results so far, except that my name was mentioned in CK's december issue (yippie!).

My favorite food is for sure Italian and my favorite snack chips.

I love to go on vacation with my family, most of all to France where we spent almost every summervacation. Besides scrapbooking I like to read, watch CSI, sleep in and eat out!

I also copied the A~Z about me from Karen´s blog;
