Default Greetings from Across the Pond

Good Day to you all

Let me introduce myself - My name is Emma and I'm a Brit - married to an american who is currently serving over here (He is an Air Force Lawyer). we are hoping to be back in Florida in the next 3 years and miss it so much.

We run a liason and drop in centre for local service personnel and their families and are currently expanding our work to cover other people and teens in the area. We do a lot of work with those who are just beginning or completing stints in the middle east.

I am an avid stamper and love SU. Although it is not directly available in the UK - I have befriended a demo who is willing to feed my "habit" - despite the huge shipping charges

My main reason for crashing these boards to I miss my SU buddies from "home" and I love the work you do. So I hope you don't mind me joining you.

This site should come with a warning label... it is so additive. It is such an awsome site I find myself checking posts like a million times a day! So welcome to the addiction!

Hi Emma!! Welcome, and you'll love being here! You probably already do I live near MacDill AFB in Tampa, maybe when you come back to Florida you'll wind up there, and already have a Stampin Friend waiting to meet you! Hope to see more posts from you in the future!

Wow - what a lovely warm welcome

Weelassie - unfortantly I am almost as far from you as I can get - Bristol - but that doesn't matter. Are there many from the UK here.

(and I would so love to see SU take off over here )

Welcome Emma!! I'm glad you found this great site! I too have recently found this site and it has become a wealth of creative info for me----I don't know how I did just a couple weeks ago without it!

Hope to see you posting here with everyone else!

Emma, if your dh is active duty stationed overseas you should have an APO address and SU WILL ship to an APO address! You shouldn't have to pay the extra shipping to ship it to you. All military ID card holders CAN order from SU, even if stationed overseas. I am in Germany and have orders shipped here all the time. Okay, maybe not all the time, but once a month to my monthly hostess.

Welcome! This is a great place with many creative people! I just love it here <read addicted here!>

We didn't have a APO address as we are a new site and come under the British Army and an existing BFPO address. However the DH got on to his bosses who "expressed" their suprise that we hadn't been told what it was (Even though we have been here a couple of months now)

So I now know what it and more importantly so do SU

You guys are great

Emma,

Woo-Hoo! I am so glad for you! The military will put us in situations that others don't grasp sometimes, but I am so happy that SU knows and you can get your stuff shipped directly! I feel so much better for you now.

Have a wonderful week!
Melissa
