Hello! Today's normally-scheduled Weekend Junk Finds post has been postponed. Oh, there were plenty of junk finds all right--but I haven't had time to photograph them all and the fact that it now gets dark by 4:30 pm certainly isn't helping matters. Instead, I want to talk about the Elf.
I've heard of it for a few years now but when I saw all of the clever and funny Elf posing ideas that people Pinned last year, I got sucked in. I even started my own Elf Hijinks Pinboard last year to collect ideas for the future. I'm not sure who will be more amused by it--the 7-year-old and 3-year-old, or the 34-year-old.
I hate having to pay $30 for the book and elf set, though. Yes, I'm cheap. But seriously--that's ridiculously expensive IMO, and as far as I can tell it never goes on sale anywhere. I've been watching.
Which is why I would LOVE to win this really FANTASTIC Elf on the Shelf giveaway over at See Jane Blog. She's put together a package including the book & elf, and also 25 days' worth of silly things to do with your elf. Go check it out! If nothing else, because she includes 25 really fun ideas for what you can do with your own elf, even if you don't win.
