What a WILD Ride...

Do you know what a work of heART is?  
It's what I do.  
I am passionate about creating and connecting with others.  The medium of crafting is sooo important.  A timeless tradition that spans back to women creating and doing life TOGETHER since the dawn of time.

Maybe you didn't know that this is what crafting can do.  Card Making is so much more than just paper to ink.
 Weeks of prep and heART work went into these fun-filled goody bags.  Driving through the desert, my daughter and I enjoyed a fun-tunes filled road trip bonding time and knowing that on this and other roads, many women were driving to the same place we were - Big Bear Lake, CA for the Getting Crafty Retreat!
Starting our Getting Crafty Retreat off with Wine, Lemonade, Tea, Cheese and Appetizers...
then off to CRAFTING!!
Tables fill a room with these FABULOUS Goody Bags, Gifts and our FIRST Session of Card Making!!  I have a theory.. calories don't count when you are crafting - lol!
It is my home away from home and I ADORE sharing it with my stamping friends and sisters.

Here Monique hadn't had a successful kayaking experience so my daughter, on a paddle board joined her and I Saturday morning for a beautiful start to our day - BEFORE the crafting even began!
 Breakfast, Crafting, Card Making then into the Village for a fabulous cooking demo, samples - yum, shopping and laughter... 
Saturday was a BLAST with a Private Concert by Ted Williams and his history of music to amazing dinner, crafting sandwiching it all... to say we had fun is an understatement! 
 Card Making, Crafting, Gifts, Goody Bags, Bingo, Raffles and PRIZES!!
 These amazing ladies...
From this view to these women....
I just LOVE what I do.

I adore that this Saturday is our Mini Retreat where those who couldn't join us in Big Bear will create at my mini-escape-stay-cation (lol).  Join Us and our many classes and crafting waiting for YOU!  It is more than just ink to paper, it's creating something beautiful, friendships and more!

We would LOVE to have 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
