My **NEW** Pink Loft! Craft Room Tour!

Hello Everyone!

I am finally moved into our new home and unpacked.  Can you believe it?  It seems like FOREVER since I've had a craft room.  I'm so grateful that Karlee was able to come and visit this weekend to help me set it up.  I think it turned out super cute and very much like my old one.  Hope you like it!  No videos just yet but here are some pictures that should tide you over.  Miss you all!

My walk in closet where I have most of my extra Cricut machines, Yudu, Cricut cartridges, aprons, etc.

I can't wait to use my Yudu!  Do they even sell these anymore?  I need to catch up on my projects!

My Imagine machines.  I know that these are now obsolete but I still plan on using them, at least until I cannot anymore.

I'm excited to be able to have all of my stamp sets out and in front of me in this new craft room.  I didn't have room before to display all of them.

I have two of these PINK Ikea Kallax storage units and I added some of the doors to them.  I love how I can hide away some of my bigger ideas that used to be in weird spots.  I can now fit them all in!

Here is one opened up.  I have my pens, watercolor crayons, pencils, Copics, Sharpies, and Promarkers in them.

I have some of my Cricut cartridges displayed on an open shelve above the PINK Ikea storage unit on the right along with my Cricut Expression 2.  Oh, and of course, there is Cricky!

I feel so accomplished!  After Karlee left this weekend, I actually  hung my M P S letters all by myself. There are a few extra holes under each letter but don't tell anyone.  (Especially my husband!)

One of my embellishment stations.  I bought both of these from Hobby Lobby and Michaels.  I am storing some ribbon, some ink pads, buttons, flowers, embossing powder, glitter, gems, etc., on this one.

This is my other embellishment station that is on the back wall that you will see a lot in my upcoming videos.  It has some ribbon, stickler, and this & that.

 Above my paper station I have more Cricut cartridges.  I have way too many, if you want to know the truth.  I don't have the heart to get rid of any but I really need to!!

My Michaels' cubes along with my 12x12 paper storage rack.  I bought this YEARS ago so I cannot tell you where to purchase it.  Just google 12x12 card stock racks and you will get a ton of sites.  

 Close up of Cricky!

Pic of the wall where my paper station is.  These are Ikea Kallax storage units.  I bought the 12x12 paper holder inserts at  Love them!

Here is a closer look.

More pics of my closet which stores about 75% of my Cricut cartridges.

A better angle.  I was able to fit a TON in this closet.  I had my builder make each shelf big enough to fit storage baskets.

My seat!  I will be sitting on this side of the room on my computer or crafting most of the time.  There is a beautiful view of the mountain outside that window.  I wonder if I'll get any work done!

This is what it looks like when you first walk into My Pink Loft.  I am so happy it is all set up!  Almost a year without a complete loft!  

I'm so happy I decided not to paint this room pink like my other rooms in the past.  I enjoyed that season of My Pink Loft but I am looking forward to many more years in my new sophisticated Pink Loft.  Plus, the bright pink hurt my eyes!  

Another view!

 Here is a little bit of my balcony.  I haven't opened it much during the day yet because of those stinkin' Box Elder bugs!!  We've already had to have the bug guys come out twice to spray.  So annoying!

More pics!

Even more!

My Pink Stamper Stamps station!  Yes, you can see that I still have held on to quite a bit of My Pink Stamper Stamps.  Who knows, they might have a comeback and I might put them back up for sale.  I'm going to have to really ponder this one.  I miss my stamps and there is nothing out there like them, if I do say so myself.  Plus, I have a couple more ideas up my sleeve!

More of the rack!

Look at how neat and organized my Bind It All station is!!  Love that they fit in these 13x13 cubes.

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL night!!!  If you are wondering where you can find more of my pictures and posts you can also check out the following….

Happy Sunday!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!  Mine was pretty good.  I had the opportunity to teach the Young Women in my ward.  I'm really enjoying my new calling as the Young Women president.  It's a busy job but I am already loving being with all the girls.  Keeps me young!

Today I taught How to be in the World and not of the World.  It's something that we can all think about.  Here's the link to one of the articles I used for my lesson.  You can click HERE to learn more about my church or feel free to e-mail me at any time with questions.  I'd love to share what I know with YOU!

Here's a quick pic I took of me and some of our Young Women.  I'm such a dork but I wanted to be in a picture WITH all of these awesome girls!  Makes me feel younger!

We are at the final countdown until we move into our new house!  Only 23 days left to go!!  TICK TOCK TICK TOCK!  I can hardly contain my excitement!  We have been living in furnished rentals since last January.  I cannot wait to unpack my stuff.  It will be like Christmas!!

Thank you all for your input on the wall color for My Pink Loft!  I decided to go with Revere Pewter.  We are using it for most of our house and I just LOVE it!  Very calming and neutral.  I am going to accent with Pink and other fun colors in my loft.  Plus, now I can get a sofa for that room and not worry about matching it with a certain shade of pink.  I can't wait to share my new room with all of you and to start filming videos again!  It's been soooooo long!

Here are some pics I snapped on Saturday afternoon after they painted the upstairs.  Should I call it My Pewter Loft now?  Lol!

On another note….  my 16 year old daughter went on her first date this weekend!!  I can't believe how fast my children are growing up.  Such a weird feeling.  Before I know it both of my girls are going to be off and married!  Here is a pic of her in the beautiful dress that it took 4 hours to find.  We have certain standards in our church and it was really tough to find a modest dress.  Even in Utah.  So grateful that we were able to find one at the last store.  You can click HERE to read about our Youth's Standards.

Have I told you guys how much I love living in Utah?  Such a beautiful place to be near the mountains and also near my family.  I was able to go to a movie with my mom last night which was wonderful.  She only lives about 20 minutes away!  My family and I went to the high school football homecoming game this past Friday night and it was so awesome!  I love being part of this "small" community.  

Hope you all have a wonderful week!  I will try to check in again real soon!

Love and hugs!

To Pink or Not to Pink….. That is the Question!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today is my most favorite day of the week!  It's a time where I can catch up, clean up, and rest from the weekend!  Did you all know that my husband has been living in Oklahoma for the entire Summer??!!  3 full months since we've moved here!  He finally moves to Utah with us THIS Friday!  I'm jumping out of my seat for joy!!  WOOOO HOOOOO!!!   It's been a long, hard Summer.  

So, they are almost done painting the basement of our new house and I have to have all of the colors picked for the other floors!  YIKES!  I am having the hardest time thinking of a PINK for My Pink Loft!  A part of me just wants to do it in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter like the rest of the walls in my home.  The bedrooms will probably be different colors, though.  

Let's do a little pole……

Pink - Yes

Not Pink - (You will still love me anyway!)

Here is one of the pinks I am looking at.  I know some of you have suggested a lighter pink but honestly, that doesn't get my creative mood going.  I need either all or nothing.  Vibrant & bright or neutral.  

Sherwin Williams Hibiscus 

Here is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter

I'm sure it will be fine either way.  Just having major guilt if I don't do my room in pink.  It's not going to cost me any more money to pick a nice color.  It's just easier for the painters to do it all one color, which means we move in quicker, too!  Plus, not sure if I will find the right shade of pink.  So many colors to choose from!!

On another note, here is a sneak peek of my laundry room.  It is almost completely installed.  I can't wait to do laundry in it!  I'm such a horrible laundry lady.   Maybe this will help me stay more organized and on top of things.

I hope you all have a great day!!  Talk to you soon!

My Pink Loft and a little treat for my young women!

Hello Everyone!

I thought I would take a minute to share some pics of My Pink Loft with you!  Things are crazy busy around here!  Hopefully we are in the final stretch.  They started painting this week.  Yay!!

Here are the builtins specifically designed for my scrapbook collection.  It is located conveniently outside of my craft room.  It will be nice to have a place to put them all.  I just need to add a chair so we can sit and look at all our past memories.  

Here is picture of our little Muffin.  He just got a hair cut yesterday so he's not so scruffy!  I snapped this picture since he was sitting next to a stuffed animal.  I think my kids put it there.

I am teaching the Laurel class in Young Women tomorrow.  For those of you who didn't hear, I just got called to be the new Young Women President of our ward.  I had only been there for 9 weeks!!  I thought I was lying low but you can't hide from the Lord.  Looks like He knows how much I will grow from this new responsibility.  And here I thought I was going to get a break in Utah!  HA!  Tomorrow I am teaching "How can I prepare now to become a righteous wife and mother".  You can click HERE to read some of the materials I am using.   I'm not sure what direction I will go yet but I've been studying this week and am sure I will be inspired with what the girls need to learn.  I am bringing some candy treats so that I can bribe encourage the girls to comment.  :)

I got this awesome gray chevron ribbon at Hobby Lobby.  I love it!!

I will try to check in again soon!

Update on My Pink Loft and Utah!

Hello my dear friends!

It has been a long time, I know.  We are about 2 months away from moving into our new home.  The time is tick, tick, ticking away!!  I am so happy that our rental is only 3 miles away from our new build as I am over there at least 2 times a day.

Here are some of the latest pics of My Pink Loft.  I still haven't decided what color the walls will be.  I know you are all shouting "PINK!!!" but I might want a more neutral color so I can accessorize with pink.  I have about 6 more weeks to stew over it.  I am going to be purchasing these cubbies from Ikea. It is sooooo awesome having an Ikea nearby!  Can you say……  SHOPPING!!??

Here is our loft framed and now with insulation.

I hope you are all having a great Summer!  I'll check in soon!  The countdown is looking like about 8 weeks!!
