hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

It’s the weekend, everyone! Woohoo! We have a fun giveaway for you today to start your weekend off right. Remember our bloggy friend, Denise, from The Painted Home?  Well. she’s throwing this awesome party called Dine & Design on November 17th.
This sounds like so much fun (espcially for us design-obsessed craftaholics who LOVE to eat, but we’ve been assured that you don’t have to be crafty to enjoy this evening!). Flowers are the “it” accessory these days, so you’ll be right on trend and can learn how to make them just in time for holiday gift-giving.
 Denise, the generous gal that she is, is giving away two tickets to this fab event to one of our lucky readers. And guess what? We’ll be there too, and we can’t wait to meet you IRL (in real life)!
Here’s how you can enter:
1. Leave us a comment telling us why you want to win. (Mandatory)
2. Become a follower of RHBC and leave us a comment telling us you did. (Optional for an extra entry)
3. “Like” us here on facebook and leave us a comment telling us you did. (Optional for an extra entry).
If you just HAVE to be there and can’t wait to see if you’ve won, you can order your tickets here. You don’t want to miss this!
Ok, enough of my rambling, go enter! We’ll pick a winner and announce him/her on Monday, October 31st.
Good luck!

*Oh yeah, one more thing! We’d love it if you’d head on over to the awesome blog,
Craftaholics Anonymous. Our celebrity for Crafting with the Stars, Linda, invited us to guest post today! Thanks, Linda. 🙂

    Just found your blog on the Thrifty Decorating facebook notifications I get… absolutely love it… ya’ll are too cute! I would love to attend the Dine & Design event… sounds right up my alley w/ craftiness & I LOVE flower accessories right now (who doesn’t?)! Would love to learn how to make them to add them to my home-based businesses.

    Right now I am a blog stalker… just pop on by every now and again, but I’ll be following you ladies! Great site!

    Ok… I left you a comment telling why I’d like to win… I subscribed to the blog… I “liked” you on facebook. I think that completes my 3 entries. If it wasn’t snowing, I may have broken a sweat! 😉 Have a great, snowy day!

    Saw you both times on Nate! Loved your rooms! I would live to win a night out learning how to make flowers, super cool! Also, so glad you gals won the trip to Mexico, I think you will truly be inspired! I liked you on FB, signed up for your newsletter, and am good to go if you will pick me! Ps, gotta know do you watch any of the RH’s and if so, which wife has the greatest style in your book? I like Adrienne and Melissa!

  18. @ Debra, so glad you found us and thanks for becoming a follower! We have some fun projects planned for the next month!
