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.

What a month

Wow what a month it has been - lots going on in front and behind the scenes at Tattered Inspirations .... so much to do and so little time - who said that you will have heaps of time when you retire (oh that is right it was me). Well let me say that is not exactly how it works out - if anything less time and more to do.... but I am not complaining ... I am happy, alive, healthy and creating - so in all it is great!

We say goodbye to Helen Jolly from the Design Team
Helen is an amazing card maker and delightful friend ho helped us on the Design Team and I am so sad to see her go. However Helen's life has changed and she does not have time to create as she once did, and so she feels it is time to leave. We will all miss her terribly from our little Team but we know that she will be with us no matter what and we all enjoy her friendship in so many ways. Helen has said she will happily creat for us when she can so I look forward to receiving lovely card photos to share!

Helen Jolly - good bye gorgeous girl and good luck!
Christmas is coming .... hohohohoho
Christmas is coming and we are looking forward to the festivities and all it brings... our family is small this year and it will be probably hot and sunny here in Australia. I am actually thinking of great food on the BBQ instead of the usual fare but I have not broken this news to my children as yet!

I have bought the start of the gifts... but have more to do and I have bought the lanterns for the deck including the candles which are outdoor ones from Dusk..... It is our first Christmas here in this house and I will ensure I get the full lot of decorations down and really make it special.

Tattered Inspirations will be quiet for January - the shop will be open and parcels sent as usual but we will have a break and no newsletter will be available. This is simply so we can all regroup and recharge after what has been a huge year. The DT will be sent somne new items to play with and we will bring you a newsletter in February with all the pics and information.
