Dog Days...

Saying good-bye is so very, very, very hard to do.  10 years and 11 months, our beloved Tinkerbell graced this Earth and our lives.  This week we lost her to a quick and fierce battle with Cancer.  Many who have attended our in-person classes have come to know, love and laugh about this loyal giant. Today we packed up her dog beds and took them to donate to the local animal shelter.  
Going to bed and waking to an empty dog-less home was brutal for us all in our family.  Waking with the intention to bless other dogs who don't have homes helped a little.  Coming home with some Whiskey really helped.  Meet Whiskey!  He's a Boxer/Mastiff mix who needed a new home.  We are a family with a home and a heart for animals!  So many changes, emotionally, but we are so grateful.  
An animal lover has a pet shaped hole in our hearts to fill and pour love out of.  Who knew a little Whiskey would make it all better (lol)?!

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
