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!

You probably noticed that we post 4-5 times a week here on the blog.  That means most days you can come here for a daily dose of creativity.  But what if I want more???  So you want more than just one dose a day?  Sounds like it’s time to follow us on Facebook! We love Facebook because it let’s us interact with so many of our readers and lets us share far more than we can here in only one daily blog post.

Still not completely convinced?  Let’s see what you’ve been missing…

Project Sneak Peeks.
I did a major 48 hour garage renovation as a surprise for my hubs.  I’ll be blogging it soon, but if you were following along on FB you’d have gotten some major sneak peeks and you’d have known that my husband came home 8 HOURS earlier than he was supposed to! 🙂
 Jess gave this project sneak peek for an AMAZING project she just finished.  This one will be posted on Infarrantly Creative next week.  I know I’m biased as a BFF, but it’s freaking awesome!
Bits of Monica Humor.
If it makes me laugh, I share it.  Sometimes I get eye rolls from Jess.  Ha!
Real Life.
We’re totally normal (well kinda) gals with lots going on in our crazy lives.  Sometimes we share things (like Jess’ Anniversary last month) that let you get to know a bit more about the girls behind EC2.
My baby girl turned 5 this week. Don’t be fooled by me sweetly calling her “baby girl”… she’s in a supper annoying, naughty phase right now.  Actually, I told Jess the other night that KJ was so naughty that I didn’t even want to mention her bday on Facebook- GASP!  Don’t worry, I got over it and below is the post.
Awesome Finds.
We use Facebook to share awesome inspiration for projects, products, and FOOD! Anytime we find a great deal or an amazing recipe, we’ll let you know.  I shared this project last week and I’m still swooning over it!
 So there you have it.  Plenty of reasons YOU should be following us on Facebook.  Oh and wouldn’t it be cool if you told your friends to do the same?  We think it would be pretty darn fabulous!

In other news…
If you’re not super familiar with blogs, I’ll fill you in on a secret… people are too busy in the summer to regularly read all their favorite blogs.  That’s kind of okay with us because we love to relax and play in the summer too!  Here’s another secret… Fall through Christmas is a stinkin’ amazing time in the blog world.  We’re talking insane creativity people.  So mark your calendars because September 3rd EC2 is ready to rock your world! (slight exaggeration, but we do have some cool projects!)
Have a great weekend!
