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!

I can’t believe Father’s Day is next weekend.  I have nothing planned yet (ugh! Slacker wife!) so, I thought I’d share some Father’s Day Gift ideas that I found throughout blog land.  
Now, I have to warn you that my hubs isn’t into ties, golf, or the TV remote and I found SO MANY project ideas like that, so if you want that stuff look on Pinterest.  These are just ones that I thought were really cool and that I’d actually try myself.  

Free Printable Props from Paper Coterie
find them HERE
I know my kids would have a blast taking pictures with these props!  Even if we didn’t print them out, we could show dad a silly slideshow!

Wall of Surprises from Oh Happy Day
find the tutorial HERE
This idea is my favorite and I think that we’ll be trying it out next weekend.  I was thinking that each of the kids could pick one activity they’d like to do with Daddy and we’ll do them throughout the day.  We might even include a few clues leading to our big present!
Personalized Book from Paper Coterie
Use this link and the code DADSDAY to get 60% off!
I love how this book can combine pictures, printed words, and kids drawings & writing.  My hubs isn’t a big fan of crafts (I mean he likes the ones my kids make) but he LOVES photo books and things written from our kids.  This is on my to do list tonight.
 Scrabble Frame from Just Another Day in Paradise
find the tutorial HERE
This project has been on Pinterest since it started and I still love it just as much.  I love the simplicity, but how it instantly grabs your attention.


Father’s Day Photo Collage from Positively Splendid
find the tutorial and downloads HERE
This is really creative and cute.  If I have time before next weekend we might give it a whirl!  

The font wasn’t totally my style, so I threw together another image that I’ll use for the writing.  Feel free to save as and use it too! Amy’s tutorial uses Picasa, but I’m loving PicMonkey’s collage tool and will probably use that for mine.  
I hope this little Round-up got your wheels turning.  
What do you have planned for the fathers in your life?

    Love these ideas! Tired of the same old stuff.

  4. Great round-up, I especially like the Wall of Surprises idea. I made the Paper Coterie book this year and absolutely love it. I just wrote about our annual Father’s Day tradition that is perfect for the dad who has everything 🙂 You can also see how my Paper Coterie book turned out over there too!
