to see the daily winners from the DL.ART 6th Annual Elf Antics linky ( they will not necessarily be chosen everyday)
Hi Everyone today is Day 12 of the Elf antics linky,
For those of you who came in late this is what is happening...
Guess who's back? If you guessed Hope, you are right.
We have been talking about it and she (Hope) thought it would be nice to have 12 days of giveaways. Here is how you can be involved in the giveaway.
You can leave a comment or/and you can enter the elf antics challenge by posting your elf doing whatever elves do (family oriented Please).In the area under your entry you can leave up to 50 characters describing what your elf is up to. You can enter and comment up to three times a
day. Make sure you leave your comments on the Post that says what day it is Day for instance this is the Day 12 post. Please Just have fun- I'm working out the logistics on my end and all entries get counted one way or another.
Here we are in the waiting room of the dentist office I told Hope to stay away from the desserts. Do you think she would listen. I'm here for a cleaning and I asked the hygienist if she would mind if Hope watched her and she said she would rather not have her watch it might be too uncomfortable, and she would be distracted. Hope was a bit disappointed
so the prize for day 12 is Hope favorite crinkle bundle
We hope you all had fun playing along
Day 12 runs from 8:10 pm now until midnight on the 13th
Thank you all for playing along.
Just to clear things up a bit for all of you. If I were to start my 12 days of Christmas on the 8th of December each day would still be a 24 hour clock.
Because my 1st day started around 8 pm each day began the next time I posted the day.
Day 12 starts now example.
-Hope was real excited today because she got to wear her new outfit.Doesn't she look cute? This photo was after we ate our brunch and were getting ready to play the gift exchange game.
Here we are getting ready for chow
My good friend Rita and I
Hope was first in line for the food and she went for the dessert first
(life is short and so are elves)
She did not waste much time checking out the presents either
There she is making herself right at home on the red plaid package.
She is already for the fun to continue
We always have a really nice area for photo shots. One of my friends husband did the wall it is made from styrofoam, (I thought that was banned in CA) Personally I love styrofoam 9" plates I use them for my art palette when I am using acrylic paint. I painted the white doors that you see off to the right (I usually get the job that if you mess up no one really knows he he), I always like helping out. There is a myriad of people that help and some incredibly talented ones.
That was my breakfast Hope was not very hungry, after all the sweets
Prize for day 11 will be 1 set of Snow peeps pins from the 5 sets that I have available
The winner can choose the set they want
We started out really early because we had to go downtown to get coffee at the Santa Cruz Roasting Company. They have been around before starbucks. I use to go in there and you would pick the beans you wanted, they would grind them and drip one cup of coffee just for you. That is before pods. Yum my favorite Steve's smooth blend that is what their claim to fame is.
We did a lot more today, but my photo editing software is not working quite right now so. I have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow and still a lot to do tonight we will call it a night Pleasant dreams.
the prize for today will be a set of 6 Santa buttons.
We started out to go to church, but my hair was still wet so I thought it would be better that I do not chance a set back after just getting over the cold and Hope was having trouble deciding what to wear. Because My favorite color is green she went for the elf shirt- I just think she is adorable. All she wanted to do was stay home and drink tea out of the Tokyo Disney mug.
she did go through my stash and picked out a prize for today
Canvas corp 45 ft of red hemp cord and red clothes pins and a d'vine swirl embossing folder
- Our day was full of shopping after packaging and shipping out orders. Hope was looking at all kinds of knick knack stuff. I quickly ruled out knick knacks for anyone. She really loved the verse on the snow globe as do I.
She wanted one of these unicorn headbands so much, unfortunately it did not come in her size.
She also wanted to see Santa, unfortunately he was on break, probably a union Santa. So there was this big moose filling in for him, she was satisfied with this visit.
We were hungry so we went and got a bite to eat and there was a Christmas tree with presents under it. She was certain there was one for her.
She thought this deer matched her T- shirt so she wanted a photo with him. The hubs is helping me out, he is holding her. She really wanted her picture with the deer on the opposite wall but there was a man sitting there eating and we did not want to disturb him. Hence, the lighting not so good here.
Well she managed to talk me into getting her a new outfit, she will probably be wearing it soon. We are both pretty tired now oh then when we got home she helped me do 4 loads of laundry
The prize for Day 9 will be Canvas copr 45 ft of red hemp cord and red clothes pins and a d'vine swirl embossing folder
The prize for Day 8 will be the wired plaid ribbon
Day 7- Hope has really been busy helping me package ribbon and get orders out so today the Hubs and I decided to take her out to lunch at the Harbor. What a great outing and a nice break from all the work.
The Hubs Extra large burrito
She wanted a sip - we said no
After lunch we sat out and looked at the lighthouse.
There is a mini marine museum at the Harbor, she wanted to ride the pelican
Then she wanted to see Mr. Otter
Then she wanted to take in some sun and lay on the relief map of the central coast
She was really happy to be at the harbor and the fact that it was 63 was exhilarating for her
Then it was time to head home and get back to work
The Harbor of Refuge
She decide the prize for day 7 should be some Santa/Grinch crinkle ribbon, she has been working on it so much and loves the colors. She wanted to wear her mink stole that Aunt Jenny got her to the beach and I said no you have to change into something more for the beach. So she picked the tee shirt, but still had to go for the sparkly skirt.
Day 6- Hope was coloring today and decided she want to send someone a coloring book and crayons. Just link up your elves leave a comment on this post for a chance to win this prize.
Day 5- Feeling much better today, I have had a slight cold which I have been fighting. So when Hope and I were at the party they had face painting. She did not want to do it but I had a rudolph nose painted on and then we went and saw Santa. Hope was little reluctant because she is supposed to be on the shelf somewhere. I told her as long as she was with an adult it was ok. Santa was so happy to see her.
Day 4- So I am feeling a little under the weather but Hope wanted to go for a ride. She knew my odometer was going to hit 50,000 soon, like in 2 miles so we took a ride through the neighborhood and looked at the ocean.
I finally got one without her, she is such a ham
Hope is so clever, se loves Santa and she loves the grinch movie, so she came up with this idea for a crinkle ribbon bundle . The Santa/Grinch bundle. It is Santa red and Grinch green 2 1/2 yards of each color for a total of five yards. It is not in my shop yet however the Day 4 prize is this
Day 3 - At the party Hope met this elf, another very quiet and very sweet elf- Do you like going to parties during the holidays?
Day 2- Party in Rochester, MI
We went to a party in Rochester Michigan and drove through the city afterward to see the lights. How many of you do that ?
As most of you know my elf Hope is pretty sweet.
A couple of years ago I took Hope with me to Michigan- she liked the snow. I will tell you more tomorrow...
Hope came in from the cold and it looks like she will be staying awhile she brought her suitcase with her this time. This was last year
