A Little about Tattered Inspirations

Tattered Inspirations is a little business which aims to provide products with a vintage heart to use in your crafts - be it scrapbooking, card making or other crafty pursuits.

The Tattered Inspirations shop is here
Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

feeling and painting something from the centre

I have had a very trying last 8 days with work stuff and it continues this week - everyone is feeling fairly raw

One of my managers is leaving tomorrow..... which is sad ...she is developing her career and I am so pleased she is - but I will miss her terribly

I always do a painting (mixed media) for my managers who leave the organisation and I haven't felt like doing it ..... I have felt wrung out and fairly raw too - even at the weekend I just sat and couldn't get with it......

But I started last night and finished it tonight and think it is the best I have done for a while - strange isn't it - out of rawness comes a creation from the centre of my heart.....


So to Gen - here is 'Faith'.......... Goodbye and the best of luck with your new challenges - I know you will be wonderful

This is my inspiration

"When you come to the edge of all the light you know,
& are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown,
faith is knowing one of 2 things will happen:
There will be something

solid to stand on,
or you will be taught how to fly."

Til next time



  1. What a lovely keepsake for your manager. the colours and techniques are great
