And if not - He is still good!


It’s a season.
God has this and you.
God will bless big!
Walk in faith.
This is hard.
Where is God in this?
Oh! There God is!
This is yucky!
I need a break.
Soooo conversations I’m having on the regular with myself and others. Sometimes the words are guttural, sometimes they are comforting, sometimes they are hard to believe or hear. I don’t doubt God (or I try not to) and really this is not the hardest season I’ve been in (like at all!). I’m heavily leaning on prayer, family and friends to breathe though this season. It’s been a LONG season - like really really long. I will take it - all - to become better, to learn what God wants me to (why He just doesn’t send me a text on what that lesson is so I make sure I learn it - idk lol).
We are receiving offers on our home . It’s becoming messy and we need to make some decisions - all that have ripple effects.
I miss crafting for fun
and as soon as we can stop the daily showings (3-5 a day) I can spread out a bit. I miss calls with family and friends. I’m chomping at the bit to be moving towards our next stage but HIS timing is key
So... just some honesty here. Life is messy. This season is challenging. I’m walking in faith and prayers daily. Rocking the worship music
(with my four kids and two dogs in my car while waiting out showings). I love my clean house
and also miss being free to be a little messy. It’s this weird thing - this clean house with my messy feelings
I grabbed this shirt
today. I needed some inspiration and reminders. I’m not whining (I’m even shaking my head at my fussing.). God has this - in His timing. He knows our needs and desires and will bless abundantly (even if it looks different than what I think it should).
My lessons as I modify this to be my daily prayer:
“Maybe the same thing he tried to teach Moses:
Don't wander off in the wilderness without Him.
Don't step out in front of Him.
Don't keep going where He is not leading.
Be willing to wait in the hot and dusty desert, without grumbling, until He has prepared the promised land for you.
Remember it is His plan and His timing. He does not need your help.”

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
