Elf on the Shelf Arrival

If you get on Pinterest you know how important everyone's Elf on the Shelf is this time of year. While some think the whole thing is creepy, I think it's a fun tradition for families! I'll admit, I don't really do much with mine. He just moves around here and there. (Since my son is older this year, I'm going to try to do a better job)!

My friend Traci and I wanted to do something fun though to show the arrival of our elves. Of course, the first thing that popped into my head is to mail him!

We used a Gatorade bottle. I spray painted the lids gold because they look better than orange. I took a knife and just cut open the side. We stuffed him inside along with glitter and other Christmas goodies. Plus we wrote a little note. We sealed them up with packing tape then placed a label on the outside. I should have made a return label from the North Pole!       

   



We went to our local post office to send them off. We wanted to use Christmas stamps because I think that just looks neat! They added tracking for us which was free. It took six forever stamps which made it $2.94. The clerk looked at us funny but I think they came out so cute!



They arrived the next day! 



This is a quick and easy way to kick off your Elf on the Shelf season. You could really mail them in whatever you want that is under 13 ounces. USPS is great that way! 

Until next time!

October 2015 Round up



Hello November!

My family had a nice Halloween and I've spent a lot of the day eating my son's candy.

I just got back from a week long beach vacation. The weather wasn't the best (lots of rain) but we got 3 really nice days and I came back with a tan! I was able to send postcards and catch up on some letters in my free time.




I want to share all the mail I received & sent this month! It was a good month of happy mail! I have very generous penpals.




Here are close ups of some of my favorites from this month:
