Desperate, Elfless times

Yesterday I told you how I desperately  need an Elf on the Shelf to keep my kids in line spread holiday magic throughout my house.



These elves are incredibly creepy:

"Hey, girl."


But as you know, I kind of dig creepy. And Christmas. So Christmas creepy is right up my alley.

Knowing this about me, @MotherhoodTruth suggested the possibility of locating a Zombie Elf.

Naturally I thought of Gnarles, who is really wasted packed up in the Halloween box all year when he could be spreading his special brand of cheer year-round.

What do you think?

You better watch out. You better not cry.

The possibilities are endless. He's nothing if not versatile:

Hippity, Hoppity.


Folks, Christmas is drawing ever nearer, and not an Elf in sight. These are desperate times, and I'm not above resorting to desperate measures. Gnarles would be thrilled to come out of the shed and hide in my children's rooms and dreams. Don't think I won't do it.

Somebody send me an Elf, or this might become reality.

  3. Hey, you're the one who pointed out I'd purchased Gnarles in October. I figure this way I get more bang for my buck.

  4. I hate decorating because everything is up for such a short time. I really like your idea of re-purposing Gnarles. It makes perfect sense! Economically and mentally (abusive)! Perfect!

  12. I most certainly do not! You may be the crazy one who climbs mountains and defies gravity, but I, dear brother, am the creepy one. Let's not forget it.

  14. I think Gnarles is SLIGHTLY more creepy. That's my personal opinion. But the Elf has definite potential.
