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 even tell you how much we love Instagram. If you follow us (@EastCoastCreative & Jess_Jackson5), you’ll quickly find that out. Out of all our social media avenues, IG is definitely my favorite. I comment and “like” things more there than on Facebook. For real! There’s something so charming and fun and real-lifey about Instagram photos and I wanted to figure out a way to show them off  in my house. But even if my version (which is not original, by the way, I’ve seen it done many a time!) isn’t your cup of tea, I’ve rounded up a few other fun ideas of what to do with those cute, square pics.

I found a site called FoxGram that makes ordering your pics super easy. Just sign in using your Instagram account on their site and all your pics load right up. Choose your favorites and
 for 25 cents a picture, they’ll print them and send them out the same day!
It didn’t take long for me to get my prints in the mail, and when I did, I was thrilled with the quality. The pictures are nice and clear and the size is just plain adorable. Love, love, love them. I kind of went buck wild and ordered way more prints then I needed for this project so I sorted them out and decided which would go in my frame.
Since I already has this large frame for our Advent Calendar, it was already set up for me to use. You can check out here how I threaded the twine and adhered it to the frame if you want to make your own. I used the mini clothespins I got from Consumer Crafts (check out our ridiculous haul video here!) a while back and started clipping the photos in the frame.
I love this method because I can change the pictures out whenever I feel like it. Plus, it really adds some personality to our kitchen and makes me happy when I walk in that room.

 I love the subtle pop of color in the pictures as you enter the kitchen from the hallway, and I think the dark frame is a nice change from the all-white gallery wall going on in the hall.
Here are a few other ideas I love too…

    I love your version of displaying the IG photos. I have been dying to make myself a twine frame like that. I want a REALLY big one though. I have a wall right as you come down my stairs that would be perfect for it. I plan on hanging pictures during the year but maybe switching to hanging my cards there during the holidays. Ah, you just inspired me to find a frame! I am going thrifting RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND!….. =]

    Oh and thanks for the info about FoxGram, that’s pretty awesome!

  10. Jess,I had this on my pintrest board from Becky Higgens.com:
    “This display of recent favorite instagram shots. She didn’t use any sort of template for this, but rather created a 16×20 canvas, reduced the size of each image to 2″ and manually placed each one on the digital canvas. She saved the final draft as a .jpg, uploaded to Costco.com and had the 16×20 printed for $6. “
    The photo looked great..so many people with so many great ideas!

  15. […] I have never been into scrapbooking. Ever. I’ve seen some amazing scrapbooks and have met some really talented scrapbookers, but me? Not enough patience. But then Instagram came along with all it’s charming filters and immediate gratification.  I’m obsessed with Instagram and have hundreds of little 4×4 prints hanging around my house.  A while ago, I showed you what I do with all the IG prints I’ve had printed with this simple frame project: […]
