Our Big News!

Hello Everyone!

I thought I would go ahead and post our big news because the cat is pretty much out of the bag.  Most of you won't think this is a big deal but it is all we can think about these days!  

We are moving to Utah!!  I cannot believe I can finally write this!  We bought our land over 2 1/2 years ago and start building this coming March 1st.  We will not move out there until the end of May but have a lot going on until then.  We have decided to go ahead and put our house up for sale at the beginning of January just to give it more time to sell.  We don't want to get stuck with two houses again!  LOL!  That was a learning experience.  We are moving into a rental house in 3 weeks and will be there for the next 5 months until we move.  With all of that said…..  I have packed up My Pink Loft!!  I started a couple of months ago because I knew it would take me a long time.  Plus, I need to paint that room so it will be a nice, normal game room instead of my BRIGHT pink studio!  LOL!!  I did take some pictures as I was packing up my loft over these past months.  So sad but exciting, too!




Over 60 boxes later……..  I am almost all cleaned out of there and can start painting on Monday!  I am so excited for my new home and Craft Room to be finished!!  I look forward to many more videos in the future and lots of crafting to share!   I hope you will now understand why I have been so absent lately.  Just a bunch going on.  :)

We are moving to Utah because that is where both of our families live.  My husband and I met in Utah, got married a year later, and then moved out of state with a brand new baby two years later.  We will have been gone for 16 years.  It is time for us to go home.  This is what I miss about Utah…



And this one is my favorite!  


Now that the cat is out of the bag, I will be able to post more often about what I am up to.  Thanks for being the best online friends EVER!!

  11. I hope you have a smooth transition going home. It's tough going home after being away for such a long time. We tried it once after 13 years and let's just say it didn't work for us. I love going back for short visits but after 38 years away I don't think I'd survive going home and living that close to relatives. Good luck to you and your family.

  23. It is always good to live near family, particularly as our parents get a bit older. We have been through that with our parents as well and are doing all we can to keep my 89 yo FIL in his house where he is happy. The kids all take turns staying with him leaving only a couple of hours where he is by himself. We are looking forward to seeing pictures of your new home and all the goodies you create in your new craft room.

  28. Congratulations, Robyn! I'm a California girl like you, and the only other state I've lived in is Pennsylvania for college. I've visited many though, and I've always said that Utah is the only other one I'd want to live in. It's absolutely gorgeous! And how fun to be designing your dream home! Have fun!!!

  29. All the best as you settle into the house building, box moving, chaos. I am certain that this will be such a positive for your entire family. Enjoy the moments!

  40. Some times it takes a move away from relatives for a while to strengthen your own family. It makes going home more meaningful. Where in Utah are you moving? I love visiting there - it is so beautiful!

  42. Congratulations on your move. I have enjoyed many of your posts, but I would really like to thank you for the one on MY FITNESS PAL. I joined and I must admit my weight is still up and down, but with MY FITNESS PAL and MEDIFAST I have taken off about 50 pounds. I still have another 50 to go, but I am happy that I've gotten about half way! I hope your new pink craft room is all that you have ever wanted it to be. Thank you for your blog, it is always a good read! Jill

  46. Ok finally, I have been checking everyday to see what the big news was & the wait is over! I am happy for you & your family! I really had to laugh hard because my husband & I moved from our home (of 12 years) approx 1 1/2 years ago, I remember my mom & I packing up my scrapbook room. OMGoodness, I know we had close if not more than the 70 boxes that you had. All my mom kept saying was, you do not need to buy any more paper, then we would come upon more paper! LOL Now in our beautiful new home, I have a beautiful scrapbook/craft room. My husband put cabinets in my room with counter tops, cabinets on the wall, cubbies & shelves. Also, don't forget about that flat screen tv, the papasun rocking chair & foot rest from pier one! I love it!!! But I would love to visit your room one day & spend some time with you. Thanks for your inspiration & prayers!! I'm still recovering from surgery, thanks for the nice emails! Buffy Scott

  71. An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Olivia Phimzile,i live in Florida,USA,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{supremetemple@hotmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same email supremetemple@hotmail.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr PAPA for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. {supremetemple@hotmail.com}, Thanks..
