Work at home mom

I'm blessed to love what I do. This week I had two amazing card making classes, a class I take, volunteering in my kids' classes, a Preschool Christmas Play, a 2nd Grade Holiday Party, Gift getting for teachers, room mom duties, a networking dinner with other amazing women who own their own businesses and a new hair do!  Whew!! I have a load of posts and work yet to do but it will wait until tomorrow. I'm grabbing a rare moment and snuggling with my mini me with our Christmas Tree lit up and MASH on TV. 
She is so very excited about her last Preschool Christmas performance!
Rewarded with her own personal penguin (a line from a Sandra Boynton book) she rocked the stage and made me cry.. my last child at Preschool!
Hair donation time!! I had two donations worth from one hair cut!! My kids (my son grew it out for this, my 9 year old and 7 year old daughters are all joining me in donating to Wigs For Kids this year). 


I feel so pretty!!  I do not give myself much time - time to make me feel pretty.  This was a blessing beyond measure!

I am toasting you. Try to take and enjoy moments of joy and connections during this Holiday Season. Cheers!!

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
