OUR NEW CHALLENGE BLOG!!

If you love shabby as much as we do and would enjoy each challenge with shabby chic style, then add yourself to our followers as we begin a journey of shabby paper, fabric, lace, flowers, birds, paint, ink, distressing, colour, vintage and layering just to name a few!!!

On the 25th of June a new prompt will appear, due 20th July - so upload to your personal blog or online gallery, link it back here in the comments section and we will do our best to visit and leave you some love!

The Challenges will change each month from inspirational, to sketches, colour, elements and even events for example!
We are soooooo excited, come celebrate our new blog and meet our international chic design team!!
Mandy (Tasmania Aust)
Julie (Western Australia)
Jenneke (Netherlands)
Hilde (Netherlands)
Chimene(Netherlands)
(If you are stopping by for a look...we would love for you to say hi and leave a little comment!)
