Elf on a Shelf

Are you an Elf on a Shelfer? I'm not. My kids were a bit too old when the whole trend started. And, let's be honest here, I didn't need one more thing to keep track of at this time of year. December is always a whirlwind. Big Girl's birthday is the 15th, then Christmas, New Years and Little Girl was born on Jan 6th. Busy, busy. All that being said, I'm not immune to the antics and creativity of people who partake in the whole Elf on a Shelf thing. It's cute and I'm sure the kiddos love it.

My cousin called the other day to tell me he had bought Evie (in the dress I made here) a girl Elf on The shelf and that he wanted clothes for it. I guess they sell them for $10/outfit. I told him I would happily make simple clothes, like skirts and a sleeping bag. I didn't have time for pants and shirts. :)

So, here is Evie's Elf on a Shelf complete with sleeping bag, pillow and 6 skirts and one dress…
I basically took scraps of ribbon and trim and made all the skirts. Easy peasy.
Of course, the Elf on a Shelf needed its own Green Bag Lady bag, no?? Of course it did.
Do you partake in the Elf? Do tell and if you have links to your antics, I would love to see! Teresa

Photo Finish Friday

Arches National Park, Moab, Utah
Where has the week gone? The light posting this week is due to much craziness happening around here. Big Girl has been suffering from terrible migraines. Poor thing. Trips to the doc and making her feel better was priority one. In the spare moments I have been holed up in my sewing room frantically making pouches for a sale at my house tomorrow. Please come if you live near me! More info on the TeresaMade Facebook page.

No links today. I haven't been cruising the internet this week to find fun things. Best wishes to all of you for a lovely weekend. XOXO--Teresa

Canyonlands National Park, Utah
This is awesome.

100% of sales today to environmental causes. Yay Patagonia!

Too late for T-day menu, but maybe Christmas?

And this too!

And, one more.

Oh Mother Earth. Heart.

Made me laugh.

We spent most of this week in and around Moab, Utah. Wow! So beautiful and an easy 5.5 hour drive from our house. I'll share more photos next week. So many great ones! The above is my favorite though. I hope all USA readers had a great Thanksgiving. I will be avoiding the outside world like the plague today. I can't deal with Black Friday shoppers. I'll be hanging out with my sewing machine instead! :) Teresa

Happy Thanksgiving!
