Meet Monika Hibbs

Founder & Creative Director

Monika first started blogging in 2011 as The Doctor’s Closet, a creative escape from the rigours of working in the medical field. Slowly but surely, her blog began to grow, building a dedicated following across Canada, the United States and throughout the world. Now, following a rename and redesign, Monika Hibbs is the place to find Monika’s best DIY tutorials, home decor recommendations, entertaining tips, and more.
When she isn’t hard at work running and overseeing MH operations, Monika loves to entertain family and friends, making memories and building traditions for her husband (Troy), son (Liam) and daughter (Lillya). She loves the feeling of a challenging workout or a long run, and stealing away a couple minutes to curl up in a sun-soaked room with a good book and a warm cup of coffee.

Lindsay‘s love for writing landed her the copy editor role on the MH team. When she closes her laptop and puts down her pen, Lindsay likes spending time with her husband and son, training for her next half-marathon, and catching up on her favourite TV shows.
