Creative ideas for your elf on the shelf

It’s that time of year where my social media feed is blowing up with cute and naughty “Elf on the Shelf” escapades. The creativity that resides in some of these people is really pretty amazing, and the naughtiness makes me question whether I really know them at all!


Candy the GSID elf has been busy at my house. Some days he’s naughty and some days he’s nice. Candy has a touchy tummy with GSID, so he has been quite a handful.
