Formally known as 'Let's Get Shabby' since 2009.
Times have changed and many of us have found our styles have too.

sponsored by a fabulous
Etsy store

owned by the lovely

Carol Mead is the owner of Tattered Inspirations, a business which promotes her mixed media art, vintage scrapbooking kits and her love of watercolours. Carol has been a scrapbooker for 12 years and is particularly drawn to using collage, mixed media and vintage embellishments on her pages. Her vintage kits and cabochons for scrapbooking sell on her etsy store and have been a most surprising success with scrapbookers and craft people from around the world.

Carol sources her charms and beads from China and Malaysia, ribbons and buttons from antique shops and has formed relationships with several vintage suppliers for laces and ephemera. In her non-art life she runs a large organization but she would rather be creating in her little art room, listening to music and watching the birds!

Tattered Inspirations is on Facebook and also has a monthly newsletter 'A Little Tattered' which can be subscribed to via email:


We'll be back tomorrow with the DT's creations for Challenge#17!
And Carol will have something special in her etsy for Shabby girls!
See you then!!

Hi Carol, thank you so much for being a Lets Get Shabby Sponsor !! Your hand made pins, flowers and embellishments are very, very beautiful: when I saw them I wanted one of every thing and start "creating" then and there, very inspiring.
