- I'm a wife, a mother, and a full time illustrator. I have a son who is 4, and a new baby girl who was born August 2012! Drawing & Digital painting is my life, but wish drawing digis was my full time job b/c I get so much satisfaction from it! For now it is a hobby that is mainly for my babies, and my escape from the strict guideline of the lisenced properties I work on in everyday life! I LOVE my day job too. I create small MMO games for major featured films, anything ranging from Dreamworks Madagascar, Ice Age, Tin Tin, or Puss In Boots to projects as small as My Little Pony, Barbie, and Hello Kitty to name a small few. I enjoy painting traditionally and digitally, and there are days where I wish I had four arms so I can do everything! Family comes first for me - life is just too short, so I try to find a happy balance between crafts and my full time career.

Cute Christmas Digital Stamp - Elf in A Box
As you all know we recently had our baby girl Serina, and she has been a joyful addition to our family. It will be interesting to see how the family dynamics will work in the coming month with our other new little friend.... Who is this little friend I speak of? No, not a puppy!!! Have you ever heard of an "Elf on the shelf"? That's right, I'm getting excited about a little elf! But it's not just any little elf! It is a cute little guy who visits after reading a story book. We have to name him when he arrives, but Kolby is not to touch him or he will lose his magic! He is only allowed to talk to him; this under strict orders from the Big Man himself (Santa), and the elf is only allowed to listen. Every day, our elf friend will visit our home, showing up in a random place, to make sure Kolby is being a good boy. Then he disappears to report to Santa! What a cute, fun, and clever idea huh? I'm soooo excited, I feel like a child myself! Christmas is super exciting again! My husband, wants us to wait until Dec 1st to bring out our elf friend and I am not sure I can wait! Not only that, if I know my son, he will take this very seriously and talk to the elf, and be on his best behaviour till the 25th of December! He usually is a very good boy anyway, but for those odd days, when he becomes Mr. Cranky Pants, I will now be able to point to my little elf buddy and have an even more peaceful December! Woohoo!
Now the big question. Since this is going to be tradition, we want to influence Kolby to come up with a cute, elf-like name. He is only 3, so he will need help with this, otherwise we'll be calling him "Excavator Banana Face"...Yes, he has a big vocabulary when it comes to trucks etc., but lacks the creativity for naming things that make sense. HA HA! Soooo....
Any ideas for an elf name for our Elf on The Shelf tradition?
