Merry Christmas

It seems like, every year, that Christmas sneaks up on us faster and faster.  I always assumed that when my kids were in school that I would have more 'spare' time - oh, what a silly thought!  So as this year flew by... I can't help but stop to count our blessings.  I am so honored and blessed that you come by, support and encourage my love of crafting and stamping.  THANK YOU!!
As a mom of 5 beautiful girls and one strapping boy, a collection of pets and my amazing Gettin' Crafty Stampin' business - I have so many blessings that I can't count them all! 
 
From my family to yours, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas!!  We hope that you are surrounded by love, laughter, family and friends (and crafting bliss!!).
I'm a wife, mom and business owner - sometimes it's hard to breathe and enjoy the season that I am in.  I love a good Charlie Brown moment - they are so uplifting!  So here is a quick 'Reason for the Season' moment that always encourages me.  Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. 
Blessings ~ Jamie AR Albanese

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
