Welcome to The Shabby Tea Room! I'm so happy that you've stopped by to visit. This fun challenge blog has been an idea in the back of my mind for many months now and I finally decided to move forward with it about two months ago. Many hours of prep and design work went into the creation of this fun little spot for you all to enjoy :) A big shout out to the wonderful web designers at The Cutest Blog On The Block for creating the wonderful custom banner, badges and blinkie you see here!

Please scroll down below and take a minute to meet each member of our fabulous and wonderfully talented DESIGN TEAM! I hand picked these gals and they are among the best of the best in the paper crafting world!

I hope that you will mark The Shabby Tea Room to your favorites and become a follower too! I'm offering a launch prize to one lucky follower ... all you have to do is become a follower of this blog to earn a chance to win! Become a follower of The Shabby Tea Room and my personal blog, Simple Treasures (see sidebar), and earn TWO chances to win! I'll hold this contest open until the end of our first week's challenge - 3/21/10. Be sure to leave me a comment here so that I know to enter your name for the prize! Thanks in advance for following and good luck to all!!

Oooh, Debbie, I'm so excited about this blog!! I found this site from Anabelle O'Malley's blog. I absolutely adore photo inspiration challenges, and anything with "shabby" in the title is right up my alley! I've become a follower here and on your blog. Hopefully I'll have time to whip up a creation for this first week's challenge (love that photo). Congrats! P.S. I live in Cary, NC - nice to know we're "neighbors."
