This Elf is not on a Shelf

I will eat them in a box. I will eat them while in my socks. They are so good, so good, you see. I will eat them by the Christmas tree. I will eat them here and there. I will eat cookies anywhere.  This elf has certainly left the shelf. So you know where to sit your self.

The sweetest Christmas Eve dinner place cards you’ll ever find.

Cookie cutter from the wonderful KaleidaCuts!

Orna.MENTAL

Sometimes I feel like I’ve gone mental trying to come up with new Christmas designs. The struggle is real but in the end I decided not to fuss and just get down to business.  Some simple fretwork, a marbled tree or two, a few sweet Santas and Christmas is in the house.

Deer Me

A very dear (not to be confused with deer) friend has me make place cards for her Christmas Eve dinner every year.  This year she wanted reindeer. I placed them in a snow globe and voila!  Dashing (or dancer, prancer, or vixen.).

Me, My Elf, and I

I have been making place cards for a friend’s Christmas Eve dinner for many years. Santa’s helpers were happy to help, taking a break after working so hard all year long. Hope your holiday meal is a very merry one.
