Blog update and some samples

I miss posting and making projects so I thought I'd update you on what's been happening since my last post in February. 
The week before I was scheduled to have surgery on my heart, my car got hit in the parking lot at Don Quijote's. I had just finished meeting with my boss for American Greetings and this happened! All I could think about was scheduling my car as soon as possible so I didn't have to worry about it while I recuperated at home. Ugh! Turned out, I had to take it in that week while I rested.
So here I am in recovery, the day before Valentine's Day. It was torture having to lie still and flat on my back for 3 hours. All I could think about was wishing I had my craft things with me. It was wonderful being able to walk out of there and going home at 7 pm.
I was so glad that my Sizzix girl had sent me a bunch of new products to play with. This precision base plate is perfect to use for die cutting intricate dies. All the little pieces fall out and you don't have to use a paper piercer to poke out the pieces anymore.
 I love these new colored cutting pads. Of course the pink one is my favorite!
And I was really impressed with these ink sheets. It's like stamping with your dies. If you are interested in it, I would suggest buying the kit first since it comes with everything you need. So much fun playing with it.
I made this "friends" card while I was home recuperating. I used Lawn Fawns new stamps and I think it was called playground.
My husband was so sweet since we didn't get to go out for Valentine's dinner. He bought me a Silhouette Cameo. I can hardly wait to start using it. Hope I can figure it out too.
I also received my rep kit of samples from Kuretake a week ago. They even sent me a cute little pencil bag to put my samples in. Lots of new Japanese pens.
And since I started a new full-time job the end of February, I haven't been able to make anything crafty. By the time I get home from work, I am pooped. I am loving it and must say it's really different. Plus, it's like I'm doing a cardio workout for 7 hours. I get to see and work with people that I haven't seen in 9 years.
So that explains why I haven't posted in awhile.
Here's a bunch of Easter treats that I made for some peeps. Love this Sizzix treat die. Its a perfect size to put candy treats.
Thanks for sticking with me to the end! I hope to get myself back into the groove of crafting.
Have a wonderful week!!!

Holy cow Cheryl. So much going on. Glad you're doing well and crafting again. Congrats on your new job!!! Guess it's like fringe benefits to feel like you're doing cardio while working and getting paid.

Continuation...and I really love that sweet card (made me smile) and Easter treats you made. Super cute. I must get that precision base plate too. Sometimes I take forever using my paper piercer to poke out those itty-bitty pieces. TFS.

OMG Cheryl, so much has happened in such a short time. I'm happy you are recovering nicely and have been crafting again! How sweet of your hubby to get you the Cameo so you can craft away to your heart's content! Take care and so happy you are posting again!
