I'm finally able to blog again

I am finally able to blog again which is fantastic. Our old internet service stopped working all together, I think I mentioned before that we were having issues and because of this I wasn't able to blog. We have got a new internet service now and although we are are having a few teething problems I think it will all be good soon. 

During the time that I haven't been able to blog I have finally done up my work area and let me just say that I love it and I can't believe it's the same room as before. I did some major re-organising and culling and finally have the room exactly the way I want it, it took me a long time to get it this way but it was worth it. It's funny, now that I have this lovely room I am finding it so much easier to keep neat, I hope to share some photos of my new room soon.

This is the first card I have made in my new room, and yes I did clean up right after making it and unlike before I still have a clean desk after making this card, miracles do happen. For this card I used some of my favourite digital images. I paper-pieced the middle balloon and added the sentiment hello using a block font. I also paper-pieced the flower on the monkey.
