Rebel Junk Vintage Market in Loveland

I will be a vendor at the Rebel Junk Vintage Market in Loveland this Friday and Saturday -February 24th and 25th at The Ranch Complex.
Created more items than originally planned for this market (that is rare - I usually run out of time).
A few highlights are a new line of flour sack tea towels using quilted flowers from a vintage tattered quilt and my favorite technique- sewing illustration along with my favorite 12 wt aurifil threads in teal, green and black.
Here are the details to the market.

Check the market website for ticket information Rebel Junk
More tea towels - a row of houses using a tattered quilt and sewing illustration technique.
Created lots of house shaped pillows. Had hoped to create a few but ended up creating 18 pillows!

Happy Valentines Day

I had hoped to have my vintage inspired Valentines theme Putz houses ready for Old House Vintage Market in Loveland but that did not happen:(

However, I decided to create a village of Valentine Houses. They have been available at the Pink Attic Cat in Downtown Littleton.

Love using Tim Holtz Sizzix dies to create all these houses:

Old house Vintage Market - Loveland 2017

Every year after Christmas I always feel creatively burned out. I find myself needing a break. Having had Vintage Whites Markets in January 2015 and 2016 in Loveland, taking a creative break is no longer an option. Creating new items for a market right after a Christmas continues to be a challenge. However, I do.

Although Vintage Whites Market moved venues and is now at the end of March (I will be a vendor) , Old House Vintage Market's first market this year was at Loveland and in mid January.

I have learned all I need is to find the right inspiration and my creative mojo comes back - thank goodness!

This year I wanted to expand by creating vintage inspired items for Valentine's Day. Ideas starting forming and I got back to work!

This is the result:

A tattered vintage quilt

Hand cut hearts

Aurifil 12 wt Red Thread to stitch around each tattered quilt heart

Vintage valentines, Adobe Photoshop Elements program, Iron on Paper

Transfer Vintage Valentine Iron on Paper images to white cotton fabric

Sew fabric vintage valentines to tattered quilt hearts

Add an eyelet and red and white twine

Result = One of a kind Fabric Vintage Valentines

Also created fabric and felt vintage valentine garlands:

Old House Vintage Market details:

This was a fantastic start to the new Market season for 2017!
Bernadette has created a very well attended market in a very short time. I am happy to have been a part of it since the first Old House Vintage Market in Golden - May 2016.
Old House Vintage Market organizer Bernadette and her team did an excellent job in organizing and promoting its market. She truly cares about all her vendors and market customers. Not only was it very successful but also fun. Loved taking photos with other vendors in the photo bus Friday evening. I am grateful to be a vendor at OHVM!
The next photos were taken by OHVM photographer and can be found at
Photos were taken before the market opened.
A rare photo of me at my booth - I'm usually behind the camera:)
After OHVM, sold out all the vintage inspired camper tea towels! I need to create more to restock but most likely will have them ready for the May Paris Street Market in Aspen Grove.
The following photos were taken by me before the market opened.
Almost sold out of these fabric valentines at OHVM. A few days later sold almost of what was left to a customer in Houston, TX. Customer found me on Instagram - IsaCreationsVintage.
