For The Cure...

Join Me in Supporting as we fight Diabetes (from Children to Adults!!)
Author and Friend, Brenda Novak discovered her son had childhood diabetes.  She uses her success as an award winning author to support the fight of Diabetes with her annual fundraiser.  

Every year I have donated a basket for this very cause.  This year she is using her books to support the cause (and I LOVE her books!!).  With 10+ years working a fundraiser and over $2.4 Million she has helped to raise in this very cause!  I have links HERE and on the Right Side of this blog! 


Our fundraising initiative for this year is an exciting one!

My (Brenda's) very first cookbook contains all of my healthiest recipes—the ones I used to raise my five kids, not recipes I hired someone to create—along with some recipes contributed by friend and co-author Jan Coad, who once owned a restaurant and has published other cookbooks. The digital edition of LOVE THAT! is currently available for pre-order at all vendors, so order yours now. The print version will be up for pre-order soon at
In addition, I’ve curated three limited edition box sets containing BRAND NEW stories from some of today's most popular writers! These sets will provide you with hours and hours of reading pleasure, all for the low price of $9.99 (that's less than $1/story), and, as with the cookbook, all the money goes to the Diabetes Research Institute. Even better news, these box sets are available wherever you typically purchase your digital books, so it doesn't matter which kind of reading device you own. Pre-order your sets now so that you receive them on May 1st, when they release. Don't wait! Once they go on sale, they will only be available through June 30th.
We only need to sell 20,000 of each set to reach our goal of sending The Diabetes Research Institute another $300,000!

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
