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!!

Congrats! So happy for you and your family.

Pat said...

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.

readysetstamp said...

Congratulations! I understand moving to be closer to family. I lived in North East Nevada for 8 years and frequented the SLC area to do all of our shopping. I just moved back to Minnesota to be closer to my family. Best wishes! :)

Congratulations on your wonderful news! With both of our families in Canada, we understand how hard it is to be away from them. I can only imagine how excited you must be! Wishing you a smooth move and lots of happy memories in Utah!

Congratulation, wishing you and your family good luck in your new home.

Kelly said...

Congratulations on your good news. Good luck with your move. Looking forward to seeing more posts in the future.

Jan Lynn said...

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.

Stephanie said...

Congratulations!!! That's very exciting news!

Debbie said...

Congratulations Robyn! One of the things I constantly praise God for is my ability to have all of my chidren and grandchildren living in the same state as me :) (Michigan) Blessings on your move and so looking forward to seeing you create in your new home!

Debbie said...

OOO I am excited for Ya'll... They say Ya'll in Utah right? lolol .. There is nothing like family. I am sure with your house being built you have DESIGNED the best studio possible. And of course a KITCHEN...lolol .. That is going to be great for the kids to be with family. I will be checking on your happenings. May GOD bless this Journey...

Debbie

Brenda said...

Good luck with your move Robyn, I know it will be great to have all the family together in one sate. Can't wait to see your new home and studio. And I look forward to videos whether it will be videos of crafting or videos of cooking, love it all!

Very exciting news! How fun!!!

Crafting Katie said...

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!!!

jers52 said...

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!

rubyslipperz said...

I live in Utah!! In Lehi...near Cabela's. I look at the pictures and am wondering how close (or far away) you'll be? I'll bet your families ar really happy to have you come back to where some of your roots lie. =)

best wishes,
annie

Deneen said...

Congratulations to all of you! Looks like a beautiful place to live. Hope all goes smooth with the move.

MizMaryAnn said...

I'm so happy for you. Doesn't Karlee live there? If so then I know you are double excited to be moving close to her. Your hubby is going to have it the hardest having to open up a new practice. I hope everything works out beautifully for all of you.

misssvickie said...

How wonderful for you to move near family.......I am hoping that once you get settled we will be blessed with lots of crafty videos! (Oklahoma will miss you)

Swimmom said...

Yes, I was wondering where you've been! Congratulations and good luck on your new adventure! I"m sure it will tough to move in a short term rental but so worth it to anticipate the move to your new home!

Brooke said...

Congratulations!! I've missed your videos. :) I'm happy that your family is able to move back 'home'! Good luck with your move. I look forward to seeing new crafty videos from your new pink loft. ;)

Congrats to you & your family. Have a safe trip and my all the pieces fall into place for you. Thanks for all the wonderful card ideas in the past and I can't wait for the future!

Dawn said...

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!

Nicole said...

Congratulations on your move! I hope you will find great happiness for you and your family!! Can't wait to see what's next for you.

taco3bumper said...

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

Renee said...

Congratulations! It's the end of an era here in Oklahoma. Blessings to you and your lovely family in your new home!

CraftyJAR said...

Congrats on your new home. I know its hard to move from one state to another but I am sure it will be nice to get set up in your new home. Good luck with the move and the sale of your old home.

Natalie's Buff Buff said...

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

Lisa Moore said...

scootingranny said...

Congratulations. I know a lot goes into a big move like this-change of schools for the kids, new house building, etc but I totally understand why you want to be closer to your family. Oklahoma's loss is Utah's gain. Best wishes...

Jaren said...

Oh wow! I am so happy for you guys! Building and moving from one house to another in the same town was hard. I can't even imagine it in another state. Utah is truly one of the most beautiful states. I cannot wait to see pictures and posts about your progress. What an exciting adventure!

i am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he traditional spell hospital casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you traditional spell hospital for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
