Shared Memories is division of GK Projects Pty Limited – ABN No. 22 103 891 274.

Shared Memories was established in September 2002 by Greg McClure and Karen McDonald. 

Initially the business focus was on Life Story Writing after Greg’’s 91 year old father (now 99 in 2010) asked the family for help to write his story. This was the catalyst that began GK Projects Pty Limited and the Shared Memories business, and various software packages and development of do-it-yourself kits and eBooks followed.  Since the end of 2005, we have changed direction and expanded our range of products significantly. Shared Memories now specialises in personalised gifts, wedding anniversary gifts, unique birthday gifts, Christening, New Baby gifts, fine bone china gifts including our famous photo plates, the stunning crystal photo memories, photo frames, hand made timber photo albums, professional dry mount albums, quality English pewter for all occasions, an extensive range of pet memory products and beautiful personalised clocks. Our most recent addition to the Shared Memories range is the exclusive Stephen & Mae Collection of fine bone china of wedding anniversary gifts.

We are constantly on the lookout for new products for our loyal customers who just keep coming back!  This year (2010), we will  be attending various Expo’s and trade fairs across Australia and around the world.

Karen and Greg live on a cattle property on the Central Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia. It is from here that Shared Memories is managed and run. The property is at 1,000 metres and is also a Wild Life Sanctuary.

standanddeliver 75 About Us
Our resident redneck!

The ‘black sheep’ of any gathering. George, has many undesirable qualities that make him stand out in society. George does have, however, one unusual quality (for him). He has a burning passion for sourcing new products from around the world – that’s why he’s not here much (which is just as well).  His advice and unique ideas for new products is why we tolerate him!  Like his twin brother Greg, he has had a dubious career in IT, mainly in the security field.

We let George ‘do his thing‘ at Shared Memories which somehow works. He tends to fill in the gaps that we miss and his new ideas are interesting to say the least. George’s interests include reading Socrates and cattle rustling.
