Family break thanks to my craftin' business!

There is no question that my life is crazy, fun, loud and overall, blessed!  My crafting time is my 'Me' time and I love that my business supports our family time!  So Join Us on our recent get-away to Big Bear as we missed the snow (darn - a really dry year in California). 
With our day-trip into the village, we had dear friends and my stampin' partner Christine join us for the weekend.
 
The little bit of ice/snow we found, the kids had a blast making into a mini snow man, having a snowball fight and in general, loving it!
Here our family friends the Cendejas family, my young assistant Martha and my family have a blast as we took to the Alpine Slides taking the luge down the mountain.
This girl loves her coffee... so of course I bring it with me to the mountain.  This is my morning view, our deck hanging over the lake for a stunning, awe inspiring view.  (This French Toast Coffee is all the flavor with out the calories - lol.  The bling cup just brings me joy.)

Enjoy the View from our deck with me.  I love my life but these little escapes are a must-do!  No phones (except my cell, lol), no bills, no drama... just time on the lake, deep breathing and family and friend time. 
So kick up your feet, breathe deep and smile.  Tomorrow is Monday and the crazy resumes.. but this refresher is just the thing we needed.
 
Thanks to YOU, my customers and lovers of crafting and my Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Team... I work hard at doing what I love to do to play hard.  Your support is a blessing to me, I can't thank you enough!!

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
