    christmas elf 10th Nov 10 at 1:42 PM
    a few questions answered:

    what is the magic elf?


    it is an american tradition, an elf that comes to stay from dec 1st until christmas eve, they are here to make note of good and bad things and "report back to santa". BUT they get into mischief along the way.

    who can join in?

    anyone that wants to add a bit more fun and magic into the run up of christmas.

    does it have to be an elf with pointy ears?

    no. elves can come in all shapes and sizes and types.

    ************************************************** **

    the following posts contain information from the older christmas elf threads.

    (as per discussion on other thread here is the 2010 elf thread. i will add names and activities all to same post at top to make things easier.)

    ************************************************** ***
    THINGS FOR ELVES TO TAKE

    *passport
    *sleigh licence (someone from USA made own!)
    *reinderr permit (see sleigh licence)
    *travel/sleeping bag/box
    *letter from santa
    *chang of clothes (most dont bother)
    *elf journal if using 1
    *elf report/list for santa - good/bad etc
    *magic snow - polystyrene ball, hole punched paper, glitter, etc in a sealed bag - you dont have to clean up every morning. this is to remind them of home and needs to be put with them every night

    all 3 of mine are off ebay. my 1st elf bertie was "a 7-dwarrf from snow white" that i added gold ribbon and bells to. my 2nd elf is an aurora rag doll, again has had few christms buttons sewn on his hat and jumper, and the 3rd was a christmas rag doll, that has had snowflakes stitched to her dress.

    QUESTION FOR YOU ALL

    is anyone VERY good/expirienced with photoshop or similar? i had a thought (dangerous i know) BUT if we all too a photo of our elves on a plain white or black background, they could all be merged into 1 big "santa's elves" photo which we can add to facebook/blogs etc. i can use it BUT not to the standard this would require.

    that would be cool, if everyone else agrees.

    theres still loads of posts being made on other thread so we are going to have to keep switching back to it. (unless we can get admin etc to lock the thread, with a note saying to post over here).

    I'm up for that - a photo of them all would be great! Unfortunately, I'm not very good with photoshop so can't offer to do it!


    The elf yourself is back:

    elf yourself clicky

    my two loved this last year, it was on screen one morning when they got up and the elves had been playing on the laptop ...they thought it was hysterical!!


    Also, there is another one (which I'm sure many of you are aware of) where there's a video of Santa talking to your child (I also done one for my OH last year which was hilarious!). This one isn't live yet, but I will keep a lookout and post the link when it is.

    Hello, we have an elf coming to our home this year named J.J. Jingles and over on the ''Grabbit it now'' board there is a free card thread and I have sent my two kids a Christmas card from J.J. to be posted to our house with a picture of himself and also a few words like he was really looking forward to spending time with them and having lots of fun and to stay on Santa's good list so he could come and the picture was for them to know what he looks like so they wouldn't open the door to other strange elves!

    Just another way to keep the kids in line and make them even more excited about December 1st.
