Glitter body jewelry gift. Sometimes you need a super quick Elf idea. I usually have little gifts/treats handy for those evening I don't feel like doing much with Elfie.
"Hmm... I think these socks are just a bit too big for me."
(New Christmas socks - another simple idea.)
Hiding behind the couch eating our daughter's favorite treat.

Afterwards I thought that I should have printed a picture of a real poinsettia flower and used that for this. But oh well. But the rest of you might consider that idea if you like things "just perfect".
Also, today is Finland's Independence Day so...
Rakas Suomi usein mielessä.

Elfie arrived a day late this year. I was hoping Elfie didn't show up until later but our daughter missed him too much so here we go again. He does make our Christmas season more special. Worth the effort.
Yes, I finally got my white Christmas tree. Since I can't have a real tree due to allergy to snow mold, might as well go all the way fake, right? :)
Love our new tree. It glows! It looked gorgeous even before we had decorated it.
We do have a green tree as well. A miniature tree from Ikea. Found these crystal ball ornaments that I think are perfect for it. Loving simple decorations. And I'm so into white right now. White is the new black, I guess, for me. :)

Feel like surprising someone with a little treat for Halloween? Here's a Halloween gift tag you can print on cardstock paper. Just copy and paste the image into a Microsoft Word document. I used 0.3" as margins and two 3.3" columns. Then I was able to cut the tags with a 3" circle cutter.

My husband had to go to an out of town convention. I slipped this card plus some chocolates into his luggage.
I'm pretty pathetic when he's gone - can't even sleep until I'm so exhausted I can't keep my eyes open at all. Thankfully, our daughter and I were able to join him in Banff couple of days later. Here's a funny sign I saw outside an Irish pub.
Personally, I absolutely can't stand alcohol and I don't drink it (I have seen too much misery it has caused in so many families) but I can still appreciate the humor behind this sign.

Here's a peek at some local art spotted at Art Walk on Whyte Avenue.
Wood burned art by Craig Boyle.
One of my favorites, for sure - Jared Robinson.
Our daughter wanted to get business cards from everyone. Hence the collection of cards.
We spent almost five hours on Whyte Avenue despite the super hot weather. Thank goodness for Slurpees and root beer float flavored ice cream (yum!) to keep us cool.
Had spicey East Indian food at Naan-o-licious while being entertained with Bollywood music videos (some of them are absolutely hilarious!).
Me tired but happy.
