About US... Carlene and Mary

SCRAPTASTIC CROPS is Born... because
Two people that LOVE to play met and became friends.   Carlene Eshleman owned a very successful online Scrapbooking store and loves to play in her HUGE scrapbooking room. She has two dogs, two grown kids, two Grandchildren and is Married to her husband Todd.  Carlene comes from Hawaii and is inspired by the spirit of the island  and by the enjoyment in simple things.   Her favorite thing to make  is ALTERED ARTS... 

Mary Fitzpatrick is new to Idaho having only moved here 4 years ago. She also owned a Large scrapbooking store named Scrap That Idea in  California. She loved everything about owning a scrapbook store except the long long long work week that sometimes topped off at 70 plus hours a week.  She opted out of re signing her lease several years ago as she still had 2 teenage kids at home and a husband that she never got to spend time with unless they came to the store to help on weekends.  Her family had been put on the back burner for to long and she knew it was time to walk away from her beloved Scrap That Idea for her Family.  Her husband retired from Law enforcement and they moved to Idaho... and she has always wanted to do something in the Scrapbooking Industry as her love of paper, ink, glue, altered arts, and people has not gone away.  Marys favorite thing to make is handmade books.. all sorts.  She loves Collage. 

Mary and Carlene decided to do a fundraising Crop for Handy Hands 501c Non profit organization as Carlene is on the Board of directors and knows how much it takes for the non profit to survive.  This will be  their first crop as Scraptastic Crops and hope to offer more crops in the future.   Both know the importance of having fun, interactive crops that offer something different.  Themes will be a reoccuring offering as our first National Scrapbooking crop will be a High Tea.. so come dressed for high tea.. and we will have a TEA-RIFFIC adventure together.
