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 spent the bulk of my weekend working on Christmas decorating and fun DIY projects (well, in between kids’ sleepovers, the girls’ riding lessons, Thanksgiving with my in-laws and cleaning for company coming… so basically I crafted and decorated at night. LOL)  Anyhow, I’m really excited to share my Christmas Home tour as part of Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co.’s holiday house tour next week, but today you’re getting a sneak peek of some of my DIY ornaments… but there’s a catch- I’m guest posting over at Shabby Creek Cottage, so you’ll have to head over to Gina’s blog to get all the details.

Rustic Modern Christmas

 I love that these ornaments can go rustic or modern and still look just as awesome!!  I actually am using both styles in my Christmas decor.  I’m a very diverse woman, what can I say 🙂

I’m a huge fan of collaborating with other bloggers (duh, that’s why we host Creating with the Stars), so go over and check out our tutorial and some of the other fabulous projects Gina has come up with for the holidays- She’s crazy talented!!

Excited!!  My little brother is flying in from Nashville (he’s finishing up law school- Proud sister alert!), my cousin her husband and their 4 kids and my aunt are coming down from Boston- it’s going to be epic!!

I’ll be back tomorrow and then off on Thursday- Happy Early Thanksgiving!!
