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.

lots of photos -so sit back and enjoy some awesome talent!!

As many of you know every year I go to LSBS Retreat near Sydney. I go with my gorgeous friends Kristin and Jenny and I spend 4 glorious days scrapping my heart out! This year I taught a class and then I enjoyed being part of the shenanigans and fun that makes up the retreat.

It was great to be with these awesome girls (their talent is sublime!!)

I was thankful this year that Cath allowed me to pop some of my goodies in the shop and I was even happier when they sold like hot cakes. So thanks to Cath and Nic for everything - I loved it (and my credit card is not just a little less healthy because of it)

Rachel was in the shop (again) so this is Me and Michelle

I have also been thinking too about the amazing people that my fellow scrappers are ...... we hug, and laugh, and cry together over life, our memories and our families. These girls are so special in my life..... they are the ones who supported me when my Dad died recently, who sent me a wonderful package, who support me in so many ways they cannot be counted.

My gorgeous friends Krisin (back) and Jenny (Front)

I know their names, their children, their hopes and dreams, their challenges and their friends through our conversations, and sitting with them as they tell me their stories. What they do is colour my world. So I want to say thank you to you ladies, who support and love me, cry and laugh with me and share my joys and my pain.  You are gold and I consider myself so lucky to share your life too!!

Here are a few layouts of the weekend..... I will share more later too. Using Tattered Inspirations products. Please note that all photos here were taken by the superbly talented Kristin Ballard, and have been published with the permission of the artist who created the work.
