~*sTaYiN' pUt *~

Well, after 3 months of trying to sell our house,
we decided it must not have been God's plan for us to move or our home would have sold by now. So we're stayin' put for the time being.
I'm a little sad, a lot relieved.
I wish I could transport my house back to San Francisco, but since that isn't gonna happen, I have to make the best of it here. There is a chance we can get to Orlando in the near future. I am praying for that!

So all day yesterday, I was here in my 'Happy Room' unpacking most of my things and putting them away. It took hours and there is still more in the dreaded storage unit! But YaY, most of my STUFF is back!!!!!!
I can finally stop focusing on the house cleaning and start focusing on being creative again! yippeeeeeeee!

Well, I know how you feel about San Fran. I want to move there sooo badly. My dad will be here this Saturday from San Fran. I told him to bring me some fog. lol. I'm sorry to hear about not selling your home but God in his divine plans knows what is best. trust him the best is yet to come.

On a brighter note how exciting must you have been putting all your beautiful treasures and crafting supplies back - Your room looks better than ever.
I cant wait to see what wonderful creations will appear on your blog in the future.

Oh my goodness - your craft room looks like so much FUN! Don't fret about not selling your house and moving yet. I think God has something better in mind for you and it's just not time to show it to you yet. Hugs!

On to Plan B, right?

Melanie Stanczyk said...

I'm so sorry, the house selling didn't work out...yet, it will you know. It just might take some time.

Please don't tell me you put your room together like that in 1 day. That would take at least 1 week if not more.

I'm glad you'll be creating more and have all your stuff back.

Wow, Deb...your studio is more amazing than I remembered! I'm sorry that you guys weren't able to sell your home, but like you said maybe God has something different in store of you guys! I would totally be stoked if you came to Florida!!

But I digress...I want to print photos of your room...so inspiring. Anyways, happy creating chica!

Georgina said...

Theatre Du Boheme said...

Sorry to hear...We had our house on the market for close to 4 or 5 onths before giving up and staying put. The things radically changed (which I'll tell you about at another time). You will be lead to where your heart desires, but not when and how you imagined...

Hugs~

The Average Jay said...

If you don't come down out of your room I am going to sell my half of the house. ( LOLOLOLOL ) I think I'm going to charge you for moving out, and then in, and now Orlando! I know we made the right move by staying cause the all those that live around us hate us more. HAHAHA

Leanne said...

Sorry your house didn't sell but as you said it is obviously not Gods will for you to be leaving yet. I am sure it will happen when it is meant to.

I love your creative space, so awesome. I had a great room too until we needed the space for the home office (grrrr) Oh well one day I will have a bigger home with a nice room all to myslef.

Have fun creating your awesome art and I look forward to seeing heaps of it on here again soon.

xx Leanne

susievasquez said...

Hey Girly, I'm sorry about the news, for some reason or another things usually don't go as we plan. I've been missing my blogging world, I need to find time again to make it happen. I love your scrap room!! mine is still out of control and still in boxes, this week I'm going to start having real girl time fun! Have a wonderful week. God Bless
Hugs...

Like you said it just was not meant to be at this time!!! Just take time for crafting therapy and everything will work out!! Just lovin' this space!

Karen said...

Well........obviously, I need to make sure I get back here more frequently.....then I'd have answers to the questions I just asked in my email (well, some of them anyways)!!! (Yes, smack me on the head.....gonna click 'follow you' as soon as I finish this comment!!!)

Your room is GORGEOUS!!!! Funny thing....I'm so not a jealous person by nature, its Really rare for me. But, the one time I can feel it flickering is when I see a BEAUTIFUL creative space to play in and yours really is that...Fantastic!!! Have oodles of fun in there!

Crossed fingers for everything to go smoothly there. :>

Tammy said...

Wow, your studio is like a giant candy store! I love it! Amazing! I want to come over and play. ;D Look at all of that fun stuff!

My favorite saying in situations like this is, "Bloom where you are planted". One day if it is maent to be you will find your way to the place of your dreams.
