Tabitha Geary: Tabitha Geary LLC

Three years ago, when Tabitha Geary's kids received memory books from their grandmother, it sparked an idea: Although scrapbooks filled the marketplace, she found no true industry for memory organizing. 

"I knew almost everyone could relate to the box of old memories in an attic or closet, but did anyone truly enjoy them?" asked the mother of five. "What about those who did not have the time or the desire to turn them into scrapbooks?" 

From there, she founded Tabitha Geary LLC, a company that organizes bags and boxes of memories -- including photos, artwork, and letters -- and transforms them into works of art for families to enjoy every day. "Our customers cry when they receive their projects, and even send presents [catered lunches, flowers, notes, etc.] as a thank you," she says. 

Tabitha has nine full-time and three part-time employees, and her business was recently featured in "Entrepreneur" magazine. She also was voted one of Virginia's Top 10 Growth Companies to Watch for 2008. But for this mother of five, what is most rewarding is the chance to play a role in preserving everyday history for generations to come.

    I just returned home from NY where we filmed our upcoming segment on The Martha Stewart Show. As I walked out on the stage I was overwhelmed with the fact that I was actually on her show. I want you all to know that I have had many days where owning my own business was hard but you need to keep working and putting one foot infront of the other. I had the great fortune of meeting 10 amazing women that could teach all of us so much! Thank you to all of them.

    My children worked with TG studio to design our 50th anniversary album from our wedding day to the present June 2008. A well done book of memories that our family and friends enjoy. I am doing a second album for a friend of mine that has been inaugurated as the 16th president of Shenandoah University. I gathered pictures, newspaper articles and presented what I had to create this album. The creativity is outstanding and it shows in the finish product. I wish Tabitha much success...and very happy she is located in the Richmond Va area. Good Luck!!!! Marilyn Calarese

    Never underestimate the power of organizing your memories and keepsakes. Instead of languishing in boxes, the creative force of Tabitha Geary transforms your most precious treasures into works of art, rekindling precisely the feelings and emotions that accompany those moments from your past - whether they occurred 5yrs or 50yrs ago. Having those at your fingertips (instead of hidden away) is a true blessing and a refreshing reminder of who you were and who you have become. Thank you Tabitha!

    Thanks for commenting on my page. I find your son to be entertaining...he is obviously having a ton of fun and wholeheartedly believes that you are a winner, no matter what happens - but he'd love to have it acknowledged by the rest of the world. Congratulations on your festive "peanut gallery". May they remain strong, healthy, and happy and may your lives be filled with laughter.

    Tabitha is a role model on many levels -- juggling life with 5 kids is plenty all by itself, but to take on the role of small business owner, entrepreneur and channel her amazing creativity is enormous. Tabitha worked with the 5th grade class at a local school to catalog their memories of K-5 and created an incredibly tender, loving and precious keepsake that we will treasure forever. We all have boxes of photos -- she makes it easy to tackle them! Good luck! Laurie Rogers

    Tabitha has created artwork for my home that is priceless. I cannot imagine anything more precious, more timeless, more classic. Thank You for providing such a heartfelt, emotional service. Tracy Marcus

    Tabitha has done an AMAZING job helping people preserve their memories. Recently, she created a beautiful picture that will always help us remember the first time we took our girls to Europe. I gave it to my husband for Christmas and we absolutely love it. Such a clever and unique keepsake!! Tabitha is smart, creative and innovative. Plus, she has FIVE kids while she does her business. What a role model. She should definitely win!! Best, Kathleen Reid

    You simply must visit Tabitha's studio to fully appreciate the quality of her work and how she can keep your family's history and magic moments from loss and also prepare them for presentation in a broad spectrum of techniques.

  • Alfred59 9 Oct, 2008

    A service of incomparable value to her customers. Tabitha is a truly remarkable businesswoman, entrepreneur, and preserver of our memories.

  • Sweisleder 8 Oct, 2008

    As a mom of three boys myself, I love this idea! I ordered an album for the out of state grandparents and was thrilled that Tabitha Geary offered our local preschool a community discount for Christmas ornaments!

  • bluegrandma 8 Oct, 2008

    Can you imagine the stories that lay undiscovered in dark hidden recesses? Portraits of a past our children cannot even fathom lay in wait. Archiving our memories is essential in discovering where we came from; who we are, and what we can dream to be.

  • bluegrandma 8 Oct, 2008

    Preservation of our photos and mementos is one of the greatest gifts we can give to future generations. It is our legacy to our children and grandchildren. It is the story of the people who paved the way for their future. The history of our great nation resides in boxes in the attics of homes throughout this country.
