Elf on the Shelf Ideas ...

Happy December!

Our Elf on the Shelf Snowflake has appeared, and she is apparently ready to cause some trouble!  In the past I've been very unoriginal when it comes to where Snowflake shows up each morning after her venture to the North Pole.  I've stuck her in the tree, on a shelf (the most unoriginal of alllll!), and other very obvious places.  

This year with all the buzz on Pinterest with Elf on the Shelf ideas, I have jump-started my imagination, and Snowflake has finally been found in some interesting places and situations.

The photos aren't the best as I'm either taking them late at night, or quickly in the morning, but I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Autumn look for Snowflake and yell out "Loooook where he is!!" or "Look what he did!!!"  

Here are Snowflake's first six hiding places ...

Using the tissue box as a bed with a tissue blanket and tissue pillow

Hanging by the pom poms of my yarn wreath

Caught tasting the Nutella

Having a little snack at the doll table

Hiding underneath a blanket

Attempting to drive and then accidentally running down another elf 
(This is by far my most favorite :)

If your family has adopted an Elf on the Shelf, where has it's most original or your favorite hiding place been?

  1. These are hilarious! I can't decide which is my favorite, I like them all!

  2. I don't blame her for busting into the Nutella - I would, too!

    I actually posted about our elf on the shelf today, too!

  3. Love the Nutella!!!! hahah

  4. ha...fun fun the elf made me laugh!

  5. Awwwwwwwwwww so cute!!! Our Timothy has been getting into some sneaky places too!!!!

  6. Ha! I love this! It truly must make the holiday that much more entertaining. I have something *kind of* similar every summer with a frog who stalks me. Instead of me putting him in various places, I find him in various places and he never ceases to scare the crap out of me :)

  7. Hehehe, I love that last one. Tell her to stick with helping Santa navigate the sleigh and stay out of the car. She's giving us women drivers a bad wrap lol.

    Our elf has turned a little naughty this year. He's been doing some not so nice stuff around the house, but the girls think it's hilarious. I may post some up for WW tomorrow.

  8. It certainly was interesting reading about Snowflake and seeing the places he has been!:) Love it! Enjoy the rest of your day Paula.

  9. Aw, I haven't seen a girl elf before. I like her, she's much less creepy than the boy somehow. Lol.
