Tattered Inspirations is having a Sale!

A note from our Sponsor

Hi Everyone

I have been creating madly (or pretty much consistently) over the past few weeks and I have stocked my Tattered Inspirations Etsy store with loads of new goodies (have included a couple of pics for you)

So now it is time for a sale to clear some lovely goodies to make way for new stock......  There are almost 50 items at very low prices here - all beautiful and all handmade by me - I just want to clear the decks a little... they are great value at 1/2 price - gotta love that bargain

So pop in and have a look around - there is seam binding, kits, cabochons and hat pins - even a few bottle tops and tiles - lovely!!

here is the link to the SALE section of the shop

And check out the new flowers, trim kits and mini kits too - I hope you like them!!

Don't forget there is free postage in Australia until next Friday 10th of December - the Etsy store blurb tells you how at the top..... gotta love that!!

So have fun and I hope you enjoy the sale

ALSO:   here's some pics of
just in: 

Hope you are having an awesome weekend!

Lots of love

Dont forget to take part in
