Holiday Cards with Minted

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the place, families were scrambling to keep up the pace.

Two Christmas cards were already here, but we haven’t started our holiday cheer.

I found a solution, the panic relented. This year, we’ll order our cards from Minted!

Okay. Enough rhyming. Let’s get down to it.  Ordering our holiday cards was a cinch this year thanks to Minted. With their variety of unique designs from a community of independent artists, the hardest part was picking which beauty we would use.

A Very Minnie Christmas: Character Chair from Delta Children is the perfect gift

It’s that time of year again: Time to shop ‘til you drop for your parents, friends, the coworker who loves cat calendars that you unfortunately drew in your office Secret Santa, teachers, and obviously your kids. It’s a lot, I know. Before you curl up under a cozy blanket and hope no one sees you until January, may I suggest Target? Put on your elastic pants of choice (yoga pants or leggings, in my case), put your hair in a topknot, grab a Starbucks, and go to Target…. online that is! That’s basically what you do every day anyway, right? You got this. #momlife

It’s a Wrap!

OK… Just a quick holiday post. I did my first batch of Christmas gift shopping today and wanted to share some things. First, I love wrapping gifts like vintage mail. (Read: with plain brown paper.) I think it’s simultaneously retro and modern…. If that’s even possible.) It’s the only paper I use. (Remember this post from last year?)

Dollar Tree Anniversary Event: Getting Halloween and Baby-Ready!

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Dollar Tree to share their special Anniversary Event Bonus Buys with you! This year the Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for House of Frost! As you all know, I love to get our holiday décor at Dollar Tree and then amplify it with some personal touches. (Remember our first Halloween or the DIY Christmas?) All décor was courtesy of fabulous finds from Dollar Tree.

Now that Baby P will be here any minute, it’s even more important to keep our eyes on our wallet and we’re certainly in luck because Dollar Tree is celebrating their anniversary from September 28, 2014 through October 11, 2014 with TONS of new Bonus Buys for up to 58% more FREE for each item! (Read: Many Dollar Tree favorites are available for a limited time in larger sizes but are still that wonderful $1 price!)

Dollar Tree Anniversary Bonus Buys


Just last weekend Big Bear said we were running low on household cleaning products. (Looks like expectant moms aren’t the only ones who get the urge to aggressively nest!) We’ll definitely be stopping by Dollar Tree to pick up 24-ct. Canisters of Good & Clean® Disinfectant Wipes (so everything is clean and ready for baby), some 25-ct. Packs of Wet Floor Wipes (for rolling around on the ground with our new bundle), and a 10-ct. Pack of Sunbeam® AA Batteries (for all of the baby gadgets we’ve acquired that require batteries.) Can you believe the timing? It couldn’t be more perfect! And y’all know Bear loves to save.

Halloween Headquarters from Dollar Tree

Don’t think for a second I’ll overlook the Halloween décor while I’m there. (And you shouldn’t either!) I can’t resist stocking up on décor, candy, costume accessories, and more! With our little Pumpkin scheduled to make her appearance October 26, and not a second later if I have anything to say about it, we’ll have our house decked out and ready to welcome her in spooky, fun style!


Shop in stores and online from Sept. 28, 2014 through Oct. 11, 2014, but remember — quantities are limited, so hurry in today to stock up on these incredible deals! See you there!
