I’m Back Elf on the Shelf Ideas
Here is a fun story behind the sign. I was on 8 weeks of bed rest with my twins the year I did this Elf on the Shelf I’m Back Idea. That is my master bedroom window and I opened that window every day just to feel like I was outside. It was a miserable time. Also, I was responsible for 54 new creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas so photo shop and ordering Christmas Tradition Elf Accessories and Props on Etsy was my thing!
