Reason to Celebrate

Reasons to Celebrate...
Births, Marriages, Achievements, Anniversaries...
Today is our Anniversary!
I invite you to Celebrate with me....
12 years ago today we stood before 160+ people and were married by our fun Pastor Sean, with a large party of friends and family who stood by our side.
 
We joined our family... I became Step-Mom to two beautiful girls and we looked forward to many new adventures, together!
Here with our family and friends we said 'I do', had amazing Italian food, danced and laughed the day away.
Today we have 5 girls and one boy... today, we sat on our bed with the kiddos and looked at these great memories... pictures of our loved ones, many who are gone now (here we are surrounded by my parents and my in-laws).  My father and grandparents were by my side as I stood there (now they look down on us from heaven)... all to celebrate!
HERE is my family... my reason why I get up daily (I don't have much of a choice - lol).  Our girls were in our wedding... now are on their own (one even looking towards her wedding some day....shhh oh the crafting I'm imagining for that - lol).
Life is worth celebrating!
Join me as I try to share love and joy with others!
Nearly 15 years together, 6 kids, moves of homes and jobs, saying hello to new babies and good-bye to loved ones.... we are working on making it - daily! 
 
My husband and kids support my love of crafting and my Stamping Business.. and I'm truly blessed!
Thanks for sharing this day with me...
 
I hope you are blessed and know that life and YOU are worth celebrating!
Blessings to YOU and Yours... from Me and Mine..

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
