When the kids are home sick...

It started yesterday - as we were walking out the door to eat dinner at a church fundraiser - my youngest placed her hand over her ear and said "My ear hurts!".  Then, like dominoes, they fell, one by one.  So rest is the best medicine, but giving my angels rest means that I am pulled in 100 directions!  I asked the girls to find something to do so that mom could work.  I love that they went to our family album to look over their memories of the past year.  Being a mom, this warms my heart to know that with Project Life by Stampin' Up! I am leaving behind a legacy of memories and love.

Mom has errands to do - even with sick kids.  My car needed a simple but necessary adjustment - so off to the mechanic we go!  

Heading home, I needed a coffee and my girls wanted some 'comfort' food - so we grabbed some bagels.  I love that they scored some green St. Patrick's plain bagels with nutella. (Does that make it an Irish/Italian mix - lol?)  Our sick day also means a Pajama Day!  Who cares if we are running errands, it's a blast to sport your comfy pj's all day.  Jammies can be stylish - just snag some of mom's glasses and you now look like a rock-star - lol.  This also makes for a fun memory out of a sore ear day.

Sisters - I pray, regularly, that my kids will have a loving and deep relationship with each other.  I was close to my brother but my sister were older so it was different.  Seeing the girls hanging together, connecting, reminiscing brings me such joy.

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
