It's been a busy but wonderful time spent with my family. I had planned on sharing photos of this year's vintage inspired Christmas Isa Creations sooner but I have been taking time off.
The outside of our home may not be decorated for Christmas this year but the inside is. I hope to share photos in the future.
We did not mail our family Christmas card this year (first time in 24+ years) but we did go to the Pink Attic Cat this past Saturday and took a family photo with Santa which I shared on my personal Facebook page.
Yesterday, we spent the day baking and decorating sugar cookies (an annual family tradition). I hope to share those photos tomorrow.
I am also sad for a very dear friend in Houston who has been on my mind. I wish I could take a trip to Houston to be with her -- her beloved dad passed away. Love you Tina! We send our love, thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Christmas reminds us of the importance of family and appreciating every single day we all have with one another.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!

I want to start this post with a heartfelt
The holiday markets are now behind me. First was Sugar Plum Bazaar, then Horseshoe Holiday Market and finally this past week, Rue de Noel, A Paris Street Christmas Market. Thank you to the organizers and all who came to support us at each market.
Thank you for making this market season a wonderful success! I appreciate all my loyal customers who come see me from year to year. Thank you to all my new customers!
My business continues to grow every year!
I create items that I love. Vintage Christmas has become a favorite of mine. I love to combine truly vintage Christmas finds with new materials to create one of a kind items. I will post pictures from all 3 markets in several posts.
I am happy to share you can continue to find a sampling of Isa Creations Christmas items at the Pink Attic Cat in downtown Littleton located at 5784 S. Rapp Street.
At Sewn Denver located on 18 S. Broadway, Denver, CO.
Now some highlights from the Christmas Markets.
I love Houses! Vintage Putz Houses is one of my personal favorites. I have admired the Christmas Putz house wreath on the cover of Martha Stewart's Living Magazine for some time. I created 2 wreaths for Sugar Plum Bazaar. One sold within 15 minutes Sugar Plum opened. The second one sold the second day. Creating these Christmas House wreaths was a favorite of mine this season. I look forward to creating more next year.
Vintage Putz houses have been my inspiration to create paper houses. I have been creating these paper houses for years. This year I am happy I was able to expand on that. I created many miniature houses, churches and campers using dies from Papertrey Ink. Tim Holtz created new dies for Sizzix which I absolutely love! Sizzix also created a camper die. All of my new paper houses, churches and campers were so well received. In fact, the campers ( both large and miniature) were mostly sold out after Horseshoe Holiday Market! I had only one miniature camper for Rue de Noel.
