Meet our Elf – “Elfie”. He is no Elf on the Shelf. Sure he gets into plenty of mischief but he is loved and held. Santa sends him around the beginning of December and he returns with Santa on Christmas Eve. As much havoc as he creates, he is still cherished as part of our Christmas holidays.
The following are some of his crazy antics from back in 2009.
Whenever Elfie sees packing peanuts, he thinks he is playing in snow. We find them every where.
We found him driving Harry’s remote control car.
He and Goofy decided to play Star Wars ships.
He got into my cotton balls and made a snowman.
He dressed up all of Harry’s animals in Christmas themed attire.
A “snowball” fight with cotton balls.
Meet “Super Elfie”.
Elfie left a a mess when he decided to create a Christmas paper chain.
Our Elf seems to have a bit of a shoe obsession. He is always trying on different shoes and socks.
And then we found Elfie at my computer. He created a ridiculous holiday video of us as elves.
I created this with various Halloween supplies I had lying around ( bingo cards, stars, stickers, tags, boxes, ribbon, glittered trees, bells, plastic spiders, plastic skeletons) with the addition of some photos (both in color and black and white). When it comes together, it creates a fun decoration.
Another holiday, another excuse for photo cubes. Can you hear me singing “I just can’t get enough?”. You can see my other cubes here and here.

Find those precious October/ Halloween photos and cut into 2″ x 2″ squares. Adhere with Modge Podge or Aleene’s tacky glue using a foam brush. Finally, you have the perfect Halloween keepsake for a table or shelf.
