Alrighty everyone, I am super excited by this! Every year, our Elf Peppermint arrives with a letter on “Official Elf Mail” stationery which I do up in photoshop and print. You can read about our Elf and how we ‘Elf on the Shelf’ here and here.
Every year I am asked if I can make and sell letters to those of you who want to have your elf friend bring a custom letter to your kids, too. The truth is I hardly have time to breathe some nights let alone make Elf letters for you […]

 I wanted to share this quick and easy little way to decorate those popular glass milk bottles {or mason jars with handles or anything glass really – let your creativity run wild!} with something we probably don’t think much of {except during back to school time where most of us probably really don’t like it} – contact paper.I shared this photo a couple of months ago of some back to school afternoon tea prep for my kids and so many of you asked where I got our apple milk bottles so I thought I’d […]

{craft} home made clay ornaments
