Up for Auction

I'm an avid reader... one who dreams of writing her own books (and has dreamt this for as long as I can remember).  Being an avid reader, I find I have a broad spectrum of what I love reading but find that Romance novels, with a thrill of danger, are my favorite. 
 
One of my favorite Authors is the New York Best Selling Author and USA Today Best Selling Author, Brenda Novak.  One of the things I love about Brenda, besides her amazing talent in story telling, is her passion for the fight against Diabetes.  My husband and many in his family have this disease.  I have a genuine passion for fighting for this cause and the cure.  This disease strikes millions.  I couldn't resist partnering with Brenda and her On-Line Auction for Diabetes!!  Last year my auction item raised $100 dollars that all went to Diabetes Research!!  Let us DOUBLE That or MORE This YEAR!!
This year's collection that I am donating is:
A wonderful collection of hand-stamped greeting cards by an award winning designer (a collection of 10 by me). A hand-stamped faux Stained Glass butterfly wreath with a coordinating hand-stamped dry-erase board. The collection is valued at $220. 
 
A wonderful collection of hand-stamped greeting cards by an award winning designer (a collection of 10). A faux Stained Glass butterfly wreath with a coordinating hand-stamped dry-erase board.
 
I stumbled on her in a used book and then became addicted.  I literally delved into ALL of her books!!  I reached out to her and have been blessed to get to know her!!  If you would like to get to know Brenda and more on her writing, simply CLICK HERE to see her website.
 
JOIN THIS AUCTION!!  CLICK HERE to see the Brenda Novak Facebook Auction and the amazing collection of items that are waiting on YOUR (and My) bids!!  CLICK HERE to see MORE on Brenda Novak's For The Cure work in fighting Diabetes and raising funds to support this battle.
With a beautiful hand-stamped, faux Stained Glass Butterfly Wreath you will hang a wonderful collection of 3D flowers, colorful butterflies and beauty. 
With rich jewel tones, this colorful wreath is a great way to add color to any room.
You could hang this outside but inside in recommended.  This would be a delightful decoration to any room, bringing the outside in for a timeless and rich look.
Write inspiring quotes, your schedule and/or messages to your loved ones (or ideal near a phone for tracking phone calls).  This colorful dry-erase board has a coordinating stained glass looking butterfly for a beautiful look to your notes.  The 3D paper flower is a fun accent to the outside of this dry erase board.
With a cute 'you can never have too much happy' sentiment, this colorful board is sure to deliver smiles.
Be eco-friendly and stop using paper... those notes often get lost.  Instead, write on this beautiful board and wipe away when you are done.
This collection is of 10 stunning hand-stamped cards that have a wide variety of uses!  Send a stunning hand-stamped card - or 10 - and wow your friends and family!!

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
