IMGP9755 - Version 2




I am wife to my perfect (well he thinks he is) husband Andrew and mum to four beautiful children, Joshua, Emily, Matthew and Daniel (twins), also refferred to on the blog as Child #1, 2, 3 and 4.

I love to Scrap, and love my business. I think I am the luckiest person alive, I get to do what I love for work. It doesn’t get any better than that. I have a fantastic customer base and the most wonderful staff and design team to help me along. I happily come home to my beautiful family every day (and Andrew cooks!) and then at night I scrap and sit at my computer (yeah, I’m a bit of a nerd).

Now I have a successful little scrapbook shop I tend to add my odd ramblings here now at this site, and you will often work stuff mixed with my personal stuff. Enjoy, and PLEASE leave comments on my posts to let me know you are reading and your opinions, or just leave a “hello”.

See ya,


I simply can’t do it alone so have enlisted the help of some very talented customers (and staff) of ours to help us design classes and sample pages to display our new stock. Meet our Staff Team Members and Design Team members.

Hi, my name is Emily

I’m the baby of the team and work on weekends and school holidays. I’ve been surrounded by scrapbooking all my life and it only seemed natural to take up the craft myself. I design and teach the kids classes and have great fun with the girls on the weekends.

Hi – I’m Sharon

I have recently moved to Geraldton… hopefully the last move as we have done plenty of this over the past few years and time to put down some roots. I am happily married with 3 boys… yes it’s a very noisy and male orientated house… so am looking forward to starting work in the shop and spending some time with all the beautiful women that Tania has been telling me about. I have dabbled in many different arts and crafts in the past but over the past 5 years have developed a love of scrapping…not only pages for albums but also OTP. I love seeing all the amazing LO’s that are displayed in the shop and am continuing to learn new techniques and find more “must have” items to add to my ever increasing stash!
Can’t wait to meet you at the store and see what you are creating to inspire me more!

I’m a country girl and very down to earth. Married to a wonderful man, have 4 daughters and 1 son, and 7 grandchildren.Although working, my out of hours activities revolve around craft (patchwork, knitting, sewing,family research, scrapbooking and cards) and my little mending business, family and friends.I started scrapbooking about 7 years ago and only recently acquired a taste for cards (something I never thought would happen (as cards didn’t interest me!!) Well there you go, all Tania’s fault, she got me started!!, now I help her out with classes.So to all you out there, even if you think it doesn’t interest you, come in and give it a go, you never know.

    Love Tan

  11. Update the pictures of the car…

    ..I’m a groupie

  12. Oh man! Pictures too? It’s boring enough without taking pictures? Not a good thing for me to appear too interested… he might try and explain how things work.

  13. Hey Tania thank you for that quick lesson yesterday. I have been ble to make a card for my mum’s birthday with what you showed me. Thanks again your a treasure

  14. Hi Lisa – my pleasure! Thanks for the yak too. x

  16. Hey Bron – you’re a legend! On the blog and all! xxxx

  17. Hi there I just chanced upon this blog, what fun! I can’t wait to visit the store. I’m coming back to Geraldton for the first time in 8yrs. It will be huge as the Patten clan is huge. I can’t wait to take some beautiful photos. Grenough Flats, gorgeous. Back Beach, wild. Horrocks, bliss. I think I will HavE tO pack the tote and leave the Presents at home so I can scrap while I’m there. I look forward to visiting as soon as I can.

  18. Hi Bridget, be sure to come and say hi and how you found us!

  19. Hi Bridget. I use to work with a Jan Patten as well as Tim when I was in Geraldton. Rellies?

  20. Hi, yes If they’re a Patten they’re a rellie. However I married into the family and still don’t know who everyone is! Will have to check with hubby. Has been quite embarassing in the past as would be walking down Marine Terrace and someone would say “Hi Bridget” and I would know they were probably a rellie but for the life of me…..

  21. Hi Tania just wanted to leave a note to say thanks for all the great lessons and funny times. We leave tomorrow for Perth and our new life. Take care and keep safe. See ya later. Lisa M xxx
