My Saturday...

So my Saturday consisted of a kids birthday party then a road trip!  We drove up the coast to my old stomping grounds in Lompoc and Solvang, California as my son was doing his 4th grade report on the Missions in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Here is a peek at our long and fun day!!
My son learned that the Lompoc, La Purisima Mission is the most haunted of the missions!!  

We had such fun exploring the rooms, the actors who played soldiers and more.

This mission is the only one not run by the Catholic Church. It is State run and free (other than paid parking) to explore. See the many events and more on this mission at :

So my son enjoyed meeting a priest and exploring the Solvang Santa Inez Mission.   This is an active church and in one of the most beautiful areas of California!!

We enjoyed Danish cookies, treats and BBQ at AJ Spurs and drive home with 6 sleeping kids after a wonderful, blessed day. Sometimes it seems like my weekends are so busy, I need a vacation from them (lol).
Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend.

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
