Merry Christmas!

Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas to YOU!
During the business of this holiday season I often wonder if there are bits of the season for me??  Sounds selfish but as a Wife, Mom and some-times Naughty and some-times Nice human being - lol - I think back to the child I was and the anticipation for Christmas Day! 
So here is a list of what I looked forward to as a child and find that fits for me as an adult, too!
~ A Real Christmas Tree (my grandparents always had a big noble fir... and we often have a 'fake' tree... so it was a delight to pick a real tree this year)
~ Lights on my Christmas Tree!
~ Decorating my home
~ Driving about and seeing the neighbor's lights
~ Visiting with family and friends
~ Gifts
~  The wonder of watching others open gifts
So as I couldn't resist wishing YOU, my friend, a Warm, Blessed and FUN Christmas filled with Laughter, Loved Ones, Good Food, Presents!
From MY Family to YOURS...
Merry Christmas!!
I am Thankful for YOUR Support of my love of paper-crafting and card-making! 
My kiddos are grateful for your supporting our family and their Momma! 
 With BIG HUGS this Christmas from
OUR Family to YOURS!!
I have to laugh...
I didn't get the baking I wanted done..
The AMOUNT of Christmas Gifts I wish I could buy..
Cards sent out (yet)....
Family Christmas Letter done (yet)...
I did wrap most of our gifts until 1:30am last night...
Have the Fixings for our Birthday Party for Jesus...
Made my Coffee (lol)....
and was able to get my Blog Post UP to THANK YOU!
So, all in all, not so bad!!
PLEASE Let ME Send YOU a GIFT This New Year!!  I am sending out gifts to my friends who attend my classes and support my passion.  EMAIL ME at and send me your mailing address, phone and a good time to call... I will try to call everyone and send something 'personalized' but I will get out my gift to ALL who email me!  (Don't Miss OUT on the Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Mailing List for many more gifts!!)

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

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
