Printable Disney Frozen Decal from Twitterpated Toad

Tisha owns Twitterpated Toad, where she dreams up and creates each design in her own in-home art studio. Many of her designs are inspired by her love of antique letterpress blocks. She also writes and illustrates children's books while operating Pemberly Design House, her family run studio. 

Tisha says, "This decal was inspired by the children around me and their connection with fictional characters. Olaf is such a humorous, honest character that I think most children are automatically drawn to him, and I could not pass up the opportunity to create something that will bring them together! "


Olaf the Snowman Coffee mug from Seeds of Faith Mom

Seeds of Faith Mom was started by a new stay-at-home mom, racking her brain trying to figure out what it is God has in store for her. She says, "I've worked my entire life and know that with hard work and dedication anything is possible. So after a few months of unemployment and days with my toddler, I realize....I love this. I love being home with her, watching her grow, shaping her into being a wonderful woman who I know will one day take this crazy world by storm. Love makes my world go around but money puts food on the table and gives my daughter the future that I want for her. So this Etsy shop is the first seed to creating a life for my little love."

This mug has been pinned over 25,000 times and favorited on Etsy over 640 times.
