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!

 We are so excited about this announcement!  We’ve been thinking about it for an eternity, but just never pulled the plug.  Today we’re officially launching a weekly East Coast Creative Newsletter!  It’s all the fun and creativity of EC2 Blog directly to your inbox one day a week.  We know everyone is busy- I mean we really get it… 7 kids between us, blogging, filming, maintaining friendships, working on our marriages- yeah we understand busy.  Our newsletter is one way to make sure you’re not missing out on anything here on EC2- I mean Jess could shock us all with another pregnancy- you never know!  Hehe.  #rumormill

We decided to call our newsletter East Coast Creative Update…


Here’s what you can expect in your inbox each week…

Paint Chip

We’ll give you a recap of what went on, on the blog during the week.  If you missed any posts or projects we’ll have the link right there for ya.  I mean could it get any easier.

Farmhouse Table Update

We know our “Knock It Off” TV schedule can be a little tricky to follow- actually we’re never quite sure when new episodes will air, but now we’re going to make sure you have the inside scoop on new episodes!

We’ll also be sure to fill you in on some inside scoop.  What rooms we’re working on, sneak peeks of projects, and more!

Paint RED

We get a lot of questions from you guys via email and Facebook, so we thought we’d tackle one each week.  We get questions from our favorite foods, to if we ever fight, to how our husbands feel about all our projects, to what it’s like to work on a TV show.  We’ll give you the skinny on all that and more!

Real Life

What would a Mon & Jess newsletter be without some random real life thrown in?  We know blogs can make life seem a little too neat and tidy, so we’ve always been committed to keepin’ it real.  Our lives aren’t perfect and we’ll be sharing little tidbits with ya.

Okay, sounds good right?  It’s time to sign up!

Pop your email in the form below. You’ll get a confirmation email and you’ll be all set!

    I just tried subscribing in both Firefox and Chrome, but neither browser gave me a subscription confirmation page after I clicked “subscribe”. I clicked “subscribe” several times in both browsers, but the page never changed. I also did not get any email verification.

      Hi Dana,

      We’re sorry you’re having troubling signing up. Have you tried Internet Explorer, we had some others sign up with no problems. Please let us know if that works. Thanks.

      • Dana says:

        Just tried again, no luck. I don’t use Internet Explorer, so I guess I’ll just have to visit your site every 17 minutes so I don’t miss a thing. 🙂

    • KATHIE says:

      I am also unable to activate my subscription to the new site.
      Have tried both Internet Explore and Google Chrome.
      Please advise.

    • Monica says:

  8. I just tried it with Internet Explorer and it still isn’t working. I’d love to get your newsletter. I am already an email subscriber, will that automatically get me the new newsletter?

    Having the same problem signing up on Internet Explorer. Can’t wait for the first issue! I simply cannot get enough of you folks.

    By the way, I read your blog about the fund raiser you did for a local church (redoing a room). I live in Philadelphia, any chance you could let us know if you’re doing another event in the area?
