The End of an Era... Packing Away all of my Crafting!

Thirteen years ago we moved to the Conejo Valley from the Antelope Valley.  With two toddlers and pregnant with my third, two dogs... we moved into this Thousand Oaks, CA home.  We added two more kids, a small goat farm, several dogs, so many friends who quickly became more like family and tons of love.  I hosted 13 years of card making and crafting classes right here, grew my business, our Getting Crafty Family team and a beautiful life.  

It is so hard to see this season change.... 

Today we have officially been listed and this chapter is closing. 
This sweet life in Ventura County, California was a wonderful place to grow and raise my beautiful children.

While all good things come to an end....
The beauty of Social Media is that we will be in our lives and able to stay in touch.

So we are moving.
There are soooo many emotions that are wrapped up in this.
Here is a fun video on what I am doing to pack up my crafting area as our new home will have a Crafting ROOM (doors to close off my kids, space to become more organized).  

Enjoy this messy part of my life...  

I hope that you enjoyed this Video

Don't forget to Sign Up and Follow my Getting Crafty YouTube Channel.
Keep an eye out... I will be taking YOU along for the ride... as we craft on the fly, on road trips, when we buy and move into our new home and as I set up my new Crafting Room!
As we approach the end of this major time in my life... 
I have to stop and THANK all of my neighbors, friends and family....

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
