Monogram Art, Food Network Star, & Upcoming Giveaway


A couple of weeks ago Danielle hosted a giveaway on her blog for a monogram decal from, Decal Monogram, an Etsy store. I entered the giveaway but I also placed an order immediately! I love the decals from Decal Monograms and they’re reasonably priced! She has the cutest decals for your walls, cell phone, cars, vases, etc… The possibilities are endless. Being creative is the fun part, right?

I ordered the “extra large wall monogram decal” for my bedroom. It was only $25. I didn’t want to attach the decal to the wall so I used a 22x28 canvas from Hobby Lobby. I got the canvas with a 40% off coupon. Next I put the canvas into a 22x28 frame that was on sale for 50% off. I love the way it turned out and I can move my new art around the house or take it with me when I move.


Another view, so you can have a better idea of the size



Is anyone watching The Next Food Network Star? Who do you want to win? From day one, I’ve been pulling for Melissa and Debbie. Since Debbie was voted off on Sunday, I’m pulling for Melissa. Love her!







~Go Melissa~






Debbie~ voted off on Sunday. Too bad, I was looking forward to an Asian chef on Food Network.


Since I've won 3 giveaways in a row, I'm going to pay it forward and host a giveaway on my blog this week. It will be for anyone who is a follower or becomes a follower. Stay tuned....

I didn't even THINK of putting those things on a canvas. Genius!

How clever to put the decals on canvas! Unfortunately for me, the decals I like best are like 2ft by 3ft!

Now I just wish I had some wall space for one of those in my apartment...

Hi, I'm a new reader! I just had to put my 2 cents in and say that I'm pulling for Melissa, too! I also love that monogram decal, such a great idea to frame it!

ElleBee said...

I love Melissa and have since the beginning. I liked Debbie's culinary POV, but her drama and integrity issues were making me crazy. Your creative idea with the decal was awesome!

Kate said...

I totally loved Melissa and Debbie. Too bad about Debbie getting kicked off, but I see some type of show on the Food Network in her future. As for Jeffrey, I absolutely can't stand him.

Melissa all the way!!!!
