HUGE NEWS

Hi Everybody.....

Do you remember my Scrappy Room?.....



Wanna see it now.....

...



...





...



...


...





Yep - it's gone......

WHY??????



...




....






....






DH and I have made the momentous decision to return to Scotland......

We have lived in Australia for nearly 12 years - and we LOVE it here.....

However, when we emigrated, we didn't factor in GRANDCHILDREN......

They are all in Scotland, and we miss them soooooooo much, it has become practically unbearable......

Every time I see a wee girl with blonde hair at the mall, my heart aches for Granny cuddles from my three beautiful wee Granddaughters.....

So, we have the house on the market, and as soon as it sells - we're gone......

Subsequently, I have resigned from the three Design Teams I am on at Scrappy Go Lucky, Stuck On U Sketches and Inspired Crafts.....

My Scrapping will be very sporadic while we ship our belongings back to Scotland, which takes about three months from leaving Australia - and we haven't shipped yet, not til the house is sold.....

So, keep your fingers crossed for me that the house sells quickly and we can get home to our Grandbabies.....

I'm not going to close my blog down, but my posts will be all over the place for a while, at least until we are settled back in Scotland.....

I
haven't forgotten the blog candy -

The winner of the Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies is......




CORRINA.....

Congrats Corrina - send me an e-mail at janestirling3(at)bigpond(dot)com and I will get them to you......

As for the rest of the candy I was going to put up between now and Christmas - well, I have decided not to bother as no one was commenting and didn't seem interested, so they have gone to a good home.....

Well, that's me for now.....

Hugs

Oh Jane! I nearly cried to see your studio so changed! But I also have tears of joy for you to be going to your grand-babies - I know that is the right decision!!! I will indeed say a prayer that your lovely home sells and you are quickly on your way to them.

Hugs!!!

Oh wow Jane!
I have to tell you that this brought tears to my eyes...
I can't imagine not being near my parents or them being
near their grand babies either.
Thank the Lord you understand the meaning of family.
You must be everything to those little ones!

So big changes but such important ones! I wish you the best
my friend! Sorry to loose you from SOUS but we always have
a place for ya!

xoxo Leah

As devastating as it is to lose you, you are making the right choice for yourself and your family. That is the most important thing. We have loved having you on the Scrappy-go-Lucky Design Team and will miss you terribly. I hope you will rejoin us from afar - though in blog land distance is irrelevant, once you are settled and have created a beautiful "Happy place" in you new home in Scotland. I will definitely he heading over to visit!

Hi Jane
having just met you though your kind comment on my blog and visiting your blog to leave you a comment, I find that you are leaving us to return to your other home. After reading your post and finding out you have family back in your other home, I am not surpised that you had made the choice to go back to them. Family is so important and life too short to miss any time spent with Grandchildren, wishing you all the best.

OMG, Jane.... what a adventure moving from Australia back to Scotland. I hope your house sells quickly and that your move is a smooth transition. Your craft room was so lovely and wonderful and I am sure it will pop up again once your are settled back home. Thanks for your recent sweet visit to my blog to say hello. I will wait to see the posting that says you are back home and all settled. Many good wishes to you and yours, Jane.
