It's time to say a shabby farewell

to some of our shabby girls.

Have all been a part of the shabby girls team for 11 months and due to work commitments and personal reasons they have decided to step down.

It is sad to see them leave the team.

Here are some of their gorgeous shabby creations.

All the best with what the future holds for you.
