Happy New Year 2015 Printable

Leave a Comment
How was your 2014? Ours was, in a nutshell, well...interesting.

We've gone through some major changes this year, most of which haven't been that great. Both Eric and I found ourselves unemployed at some point this year, and I'm still working on resolving some health challenges that have recently arisen. But in spite of all that, I'm thankful for the changes that have allowed us to bring Anastasia Vintage to life and to meet some of the most amazing people through blogging this year.

Happy New Year 2015 Party Printable

Whether it brings good or bad (or most certainly a mixture of both), I'm looking forward to 2015 and the road ahead.

So for all of us looking forward to the year ahead, today's printable comes just in time for your New Year's party planning. I was aiming for a bit of a Great Gatsby vibe with this one - I think I succeeded, more or less :)

Happy New Year 2015 Party Printable

It would be just lovely in a glitzy frame, don't you think? :)

To download the image, just right-click on it, select "Save Image As..." and save it to your computer.

What have you been most grateful for this year? What are you most looking forward to in 2015? Let us know below!

And as always, share with us how you used this printable for a chance to be featured on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter :)

Hello, dear friends! We are so glad you've joined us for the last Turn It Up Tuesday of 2014! I hope you've enjoyed taking a break to enjoy family and friends this holiday season - we sure have been having a good time around here!

One of the best parts has been visiting my mom and seeing all of the old Christmas ornaments I remember from my childhood - I shared some of my favorites yesterday on Instagram. As beaten up as they may have gotten over the years, I still love them :)

DIY Toile Christmas Ornament

Leave a Comment
We've been working hard around here getting our home ready for Christmas! It's been so much fun pulling out the very first ornaments we bought after getting married (it's our 3rd Christmas, yay!), as well as making some new ones that are really unique and special. Today I'm sharing one I made that I especially love!

A while back I purchased some toile for another project we're working on (click here to see it!). I guess somehow my measuring skills must have been really off, because I got waaaay too much. At first, I thought about returning it, but I'd gotten it for a great price. And besides, in what world has too much toile ever been a problem? :)

The color scheme of this toile is just perfect for the holidays without screaming "Christmas," you know?

Here's how I made the ornament. First, I stained both pieces of an embroidery hoop to give it a more rustic vibe. Then, I cut my fabric slightly larger than the hoop - some toile for the front and a bit of muslin for the back.

Next, the embellishments: faux berries and greenery, a bit of twine, and some woven burlap ribbon that I love love love! If I don't learn some restraint, I may just have to wear this ribbon as a scarf :)

Here's the finished product!

I just love when simple elements come together to make something lovely!

As for the other, in-progess toile project, well...we've got a bit of a love/hate thing going on right now. But the good news is, you can follow along on Facebook to see how it's coming along :)

Plus, I've still got some toile left - let me know below how you think I should use it!

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! The weather here has been amazing these past few weeks, so I'm trying to soak up as much as I can before we're hit by another round of snow. Yes, I'm Canadian, but that still doesn't mean I love snow! ;)

Last week, we shared the first of our free Christmas carol printables - we'll have another one for you this Friday, so be sure to stop by and check it out!
