Going for the GOLD!

It was a goal, a dream, a plan... 
 It came true to life!
Arriving at the CentreStage (leadership) portion of a recent Stampin' Up! event had me giddy to see it.  
My Gold tag for my name badge.  
I'd done it! 
Walking the stage - we were three of 23 GLOBALLY to have earned Gold.  WOW!  What an honor and thrill to walk the stage with a friend, to see my Getting Crafty Family in the audience, to feel like a victor! (Can you tell that I'm excited?!?)
 The week after this event, my Gold Necklace arrived.  Oh my GOAT - it is sooo fabulous.  I am overjoyed!  
My award and Certificate of Advancement arrived as well!  WOW.  Humbled, happy, honored.  I love that when we apply our hard work, a passion for crafting and connecting with others... seeing my own Getting Crafty Family walk for their own achievements... it's just amazing.  
My kids.  OK seriously - my kids rock. I love being a mom and how I can work my business along side of homeschooling and raising them.  Their seeing my hard work and the fruition of it is partially a success for them!  My son couldn't help himself jumping in to celebrate me - lol.

Thank YOU.
Thank you for your support of me, my business, my passion for crafting and love of connecting with others (making handmade cards and sending them!).  Your support has me close to earning Maui with Stampin' Up! as well!  Please feel free to join us at upcoming classes, shopping, joining the Getting Crafty Family... I love connecting with YOU!

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
