Default Newbie from England here

Hi all,

My Name Is Barbara and I come from the UK.

I am totally addicted to Rubber stamping, I also Cross Stitch and maybe one day I'll dip my toes into Scrap booking as well.

I have to say I have been lurking here for a while plucking up the courage to post.


I love looking at the Gallerys you have on here and all I can say is wow what a bunch of artistic stampers on this site, I just wish we had SU in this country.

I hope I have not bored you with my first post

Happy Stamping Barbara.

Welcome Barbara!
I lived in the UK 5 years ago for 2.5 years and LOVED it! I'd go back in a minute, even with kids now. We were in Berkshire, a little village called Cookham. I even taught in a British Infant School and had an incredible expereince. Welcome again!

If you want to meet up Barbara, I will be shopping at Blade Rubber Stamps in London sometime between Jan. 27 and Feb. 2. If you can come to London, I'd love to meet up with you at the store.

We can arrange a date and time. Email me if you are interested.

Welcome Barbara!
I have a good friend who lives in Ringwood which is near Bournemouth. I have spent many wonderful times with her in the New Forest and in all the wonderful places in that part of England. I haven't been there for a while and seeing your post made me realize that it really is time!!
Enjoy your time here. This is a great site.

Welcome Barbara,

You will just love it here. These ladies are very talented and I love looking at their works of art.
We lived in England for a few years and we just fell in love with it. We wish we could go back. My husband has family there.
