Elfcapades 2009

My girls have elves that started visiting us during the holidays a few years ago.  I thought I would set up a slideshow of their mischief this year.  So far they have gathered some of the stuffed animals and read Night Before Christmas to them, tried wrapping presents and ended up wrapping one of them instead, copied themselves on my printer/copier,  tried to teach a dragon to be a reindeer, trained reindeer. Last night they and the reindeer got captured by the dragon.  I guess it was a little miffed at them because they had tied it's snout closed the night before.

Ladies Christmas Tea

My church had our Ladies Christmas Tea this past Saturday. This was my first year as hostess of a table. After much indecision about what to do for my table I finally decided to use my china which has a black and gold design. I took the cue from the china and went with a black and gold theme.

My youngest daughter and I sitting at the table. I even planned my outfit to match my table. LOL!
The box at each plate was a gift for my guests.
I made the boxes and the bows. The boxes are 4"x 2" and the lid is 4"x1". I got the instructions for the paper bow on SCS.

I'll try to post the box instructions later.

Included in the box was a card, a memo clip pad, angel pin, and Ghiradelli chocolate. I also made a name place card for each person.
