|I just like smiling. Smiling's my favorite!|
|Wearing their ugly sweaters.|
My husband's includes lights.
|Next year's ugly sweater?|
|T-shirt with puffy black fabric paint |
"placard" and yellow "Scandanavian"
designs, alternately glittered gold.
So, I bought one t-shirt, two rectangles of green felt, one each yellow and white, and 5 black. I already had black and yellow puffy fabric paint and gold glitter and tights, so this was far cheaper than my foray into Elsa territory. I started with the shirt, drawing a line down the center, then spreading each one out to the corners at the bottom to imitate the Nordic jacket Buddy wears exclusively. Then I drew Christmasy decorations around the placard, and glittered every other one. Because I thought originally I wear them the same way as the cotton headed ninny muggins, coat tails were a must, so I cut two rectangles from one sheet of green felt, and curved the outer edges, to cover my elfin tushie. I cut from the white felt two collar shaped pieces and whip stitched them to the neck line.

|Oh, it's not a costume, I'm an elf. Well, technically|
I'm a human, but I was raised by elves.
