Well, folks, can you believe that there are only 37 days until Christmas? Despite how busy we elves are during the holiday season, we thought it was about time to start blogging more in order to inject some merriness into your days. We do hope you’ll stop by regularly between now and Christmas, as we’ll be highlighting charities, posting some of our holiday favourites from Etsy, and sharing other festive fun. Plus, you’ll get to see where in the world Raymond the reindeer visited this year!

If you’ve read the Elf Blog in years past, you might be wondering where the crafts went. Have no fear—they’re still here! The elves have created so many awesome craft projects that we decided the crafts deserved their own home at the North Pole. So, may I present to you… the Craft Cottage!

Craft Cottage

The Craft Cottage houses all kinds of crafty goodness—from ornaments to home decor to wreaths and more. So bust out the glitter and glue gun, and head on over to the Craft Cottage.
