My Cruz now has a new outfit thanks to Elf on the Shelf . Today I was in Target and ended up spending money, something I didn't want to do, but Target has so much in the way of diorama and doll candy I can't resist. I had seen Elf on the Shelf last year and didn't really pay attention. But it is a cute idea I am thinking of doing- the cuteness of the website has sucked me into Christmas-cuteness-sweet factor here.
It is a little short on his arms, but it might fit the Mattel boys better. It matches his ski hat I made him out of the leftover Christmas socks- I need more of these with the black, it is a really cool pattern. The elf on the shelf items come in either boy or girl and apparently you can dress your elf up. There is a cool bomber jacket that I am going to go back and get as well as a football jersey that I think my Santa might need to have too.
Johnny isn't impressed, lol. I might try the blouse on him if his arms are shorter.
While at Target I also found ONE Christmas Chelsea left at my Target.
She is very cute, I am not surprised that I can't find the rest of them- her little shoes are elf shoes!
While I was making Johnny's sweater, I also made my mini american girl Kirsten a little hat similar to the retired set.
All this elf on the shelf stuff has given me some ideas of how to add fun to the dioramas for Christmas! Elf on the shelf items can also be found at Hallmark, Barnes and Noble, Amazon and other places that carry it.
