New crochet Pattern to try.

Have any of you tried this new kind of yarn? It is called Sashay Yarn, Ribbon or Ruffle yarn.
I found a pattern on the Mary Maxim website. It is a free pattern but you must register with the website to get the free pattern which is no biggie. Here's the link: Sashay Scarf Pattern
I watched some videos on You Tube on how to do this type of crochet because I didn't want to mees it up! This yarn is really cute! The pattern I used was pretty self explanitory so I gave it a go and finished the scarf in like 30 minutes!!!  Love it! Let me know what you think once you have tried this yarn! Come back and post pics of your projects! I want to see what else can be done with this great yarn!

Don't Let Our Elf Be a Bad Influence on Your Elf!

At our house, the Elf on the Shelf Tradition has been going on for the past 3 years. Our Elf, Marvin, has  always just found a new spot to sit and watch the kids, but this year he has been naughty! Here are some of the things that our little elf friend has been up to....
On a date with Barbie! (Ken is not going to like this!)

The Playmobil Guys aren't thrilled with Marvin's Mischief!

Making the Kids look more distinguished with dry erase mustaches.

Sneaking the Chocolate!

Getting into the ring and getting smacked down!

A little Cirque Du Soleil!

Getting his tan on under a book light!
There were a few that I wasn't quick enough to get a picture of... Shaving in the bathroom with Dad's shaving cream all over his face, Being fabulous in Mom's costume jewelry, playing Black Jack with a roudy group of toys and hiding out in the kids' Lego fort!
Don't let Marvin be a bad influence on you Elves!
