Did you know that Santa's elves go to school?????

Santa's elves 
must first complete
a very demanding course before becoming one of 
SANTA'S
 chosen 
elves


ELFCAPADE CLASSES
begin
 promptly each day at
10 AM


HINKLEY
has told me that 
BREAKFAST
 is key 
to the start of a good day!

"We elves try to stick to the 4 main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."
quote 
from
~BUDDY the Elf


Before being sent to me
my elf
HINKLEY
had to complete the training
given by
Brenda Griffith
at

*let me add this does not ALWAYS guarantee 
an
 ELF that is FULLY trained!!!!!!

In fact......I have had to do a LOT of re-training.....sigh!!!!

Soooooo I decided that maybe BRENDA
 should
 assess her course of study for the elves 
BEFORE
 shipping them to their new homes!!!!

 With that in mind I decided to paint her a
 chalk board 
to keep track of the elves schooling



I used a 
design
Inspired 
by
Terrye French
 called 
ELF CLASS
to paint this project



I used my own colors and added some personal touches to the piece


It is always fun to see a piece come to life!!








Merry Christmas Brenda!!!!

Thank you for helping to 
MAKE THE MAGIC 
happen for me this Christmas!!!!


Happy Painting !
Lynn

  3. I think we need to send Miss Brenda a handbook of WHAT to teach the elves, or what NOT to teach the elves!! =/

    That was so incredibly sweet of you to THINK of her and to send her the wonderful creation...THE MAGIC sure was happening!!
