Elf Door

So our elves have arrived in full force and this year they have their own little magic door.



I painted a simple piece of wood Christmas red...added a button door knob and a couple little scrapbook pieces for the hinges. The wreath is also a scrapbooking sticker put it's three dimensional not flat. Next I made a little sign to hang above the door that says Elves Only.  I put it near the basebooard in the living room. I can't wait for Evan to come over tomorrow night and discover it!  A whimsical magical little door.

My daughter (mother to Evan) pointed out that only the little elves can fit through it and not our two bigger ones but I told her that elves are magical so of course they can shrink down and fit right through!  I'm going to leave a little gift by the door for Evan to discover also!

More elf fun later!!

Advent Calendar Idea


Found this super cute advent calendar idea over at Makoodle.com  


It is really neat and you can find the printable numbers and little inside activity ideas FREE there too. I know it's impossible for me to pull this off for this Christmas but it is going on my list for next year. Do I need ANOTHER advent calendar? No! But I love them and I love this idea.

It uses Wilton 2 inch favor tins, some card stock, modge podge and a couple other things depending on if you want to make it a magnetic board in a frame. I'm not sure of I would do that or ??  Here's another version from Twig and Thistle that suggests putting them in a tree shape on the fridge!



Something to put on the Rudolph Day list for 2012!!!

Pick Up Your Rudolph Day Book


Pick up your Rudolph Day 2012 book at Target Dollar Spot before they are gone...This makes a great little book for keeping track of Rudolph Days....It has enough pages to devote one Each month to that month's list and leave several blank pages after each one for your notes about how the day went!

I have mine and I hope it makes my 2012 Rudolph Days even better than 2011!!  You could of course always make one with a little notebook and stickers if you want!!
