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!

Are you looking for the link party for your Creating with the Stars submission? Yay! We’re thrilled to have you! Click here or use the button below to link up. Submissions are now open until February 21st. If you want to read more about the contest and all that it entails, click here.




Wow, two awesome giveaways in one week! We love it when that happens! A while ago I posted about my Instagram frame and a few other options to display your favorite IG photos. Nate emailed me shortly after asking me if I had ever heard of InstaThis, a brand new company that takes your Instagram photos and prints them directly onto wood or acrylic for a really unique piece of art. We checked it out immediately and thought it was so cool. What better way to introduce you to a new awesome company than to do a giveaway?!!
Of course, we never like to do giveaways unless we personally have tried the product so that we know we’re promoting good stuff to you guys. It’s important to us that the products we introduce to you are quality, and let me tell you I was thrilled with this one.

I ordered one of my fav pics of the hubs and me and decided on the wood option and it turned out beautifully. The photo is printed directly onto the birch wood so that you can still see the grain of the wood. It creates a really awesome effect that looks much more like a piece of art, instead of just a plain old picture.
It also comes with all the mounting hardware you need and a custom slot in the back that allows for easy adjusting and hanging. I love that feature.
I’m super happy with my print and love that it gives me just one more way to use my instagram photos in my home. I haven’t decided where I’m going to hang it but for now, it’s sitting pretty in my dining room.
One lucky reader will win (one) 12×12 print from InstaThis!

    This is amazing! I would print a picture of my 3 month old daughter that I took while we drove to grandma’s house. It is an amazing picture of her and my Mom keeps asking me for it and until now I dind’t know the best way to print from Instagram

    I have the most amazing photo of my daughter on her surf board with the sun setting in the background and her back arched as she jumps up to the wave on her board. She is mostly a silhoutte and it’s just the most amazing photo. This would be perfect for that shot.

  10. I would print a picture of me & my hubby in Jamaica on our honeymoon! So not creative, but there are so many amazing memories attached!

  11. Sarah says:

    I would print a picture of Venice, Italy. I loved it there & wish I could go back. It was amazing & I love the memories I took there.

  12. Suzanne Case says:

    This is the inspiration I’ve been waiting for. I want to put a family photo in our entryway, as part of a collage of frames. This would look perfect!

  13. Elizabeth says:

    I would get a print of the skyline of our city.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    Liked them on FB!

    I have a picture if my hubby and I holding hands that I really love!

  17. Jolynn says:

    Great giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity. I heart Instragram so much! Choosing only one photo is so difficult. I am a new mommy and just snapped a picture of my sweet boy fast asleep in his “superbaby” onesie.

  18. patti says:

    I have an amazing photo of my grandson, at age 2, taking sips from a bottle of syrup!

  19. A picture of me and my two girls, I love them!

    I have a photo of my husband and I that I love and would be perfect to print on wood!!

  21. Carissa says:

    I have a photo of my husband and I that I love and would be perfect to print on wood!!

  22. Melissa says:

    I would love to print a photo of my husband and I from our wedding! It would bring so much warmth to our bedroom, and our bedroom definitely needs a little warming up with only one window! – Melissa

  23. I am creating a woMan Cave for myself and I would love to win this to help decorate my space. I would use pictures of my husband and our dogs. Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. I’d print a pic of a barn in Lancaster County — that I took one evening as the sun was setting.

  25. Nina23 says:

    I don’t have real children…yet, but I do have 2 dogs that are very much my babies and every now and then, they love each other enough to lay down next to each other or one on top of the other and it makes my heart melt (you’d totally understand if you saw how much they used to fight). I happened to sneak a few shots during these rare moments and would love to be able to print it and hang it on my wall at home (as proof that these moments DO exist) or maybe take it to work with me so that I can dote on them even more.

  26. Tera says:

    So excited for an opportunity to win this. What an amazing idea. I would print my favorite picture of my daughter and son together. We have had multiple professional photos taken of them, but this picture is still by far my favorite.

  27. Jesse Bodine says:

    This is great! I am in the middle of putting together a gallery wall for our bedroom and I have a few Instagram pics that would look great up there especially on the wood! Love this and thanks for sharing such a fun product!

  28. Have done prints on canvas now its time to add the next grandchild with a Intragram pic

  29. Julie says:

    Would love to do this with a family picture from our Florida vacation…have a neat beach photo of the seven of us holding hands on the beach.

    Thanks for a chance to win!
