If I Do Say So Myself...My Parents Make Adorable Elves.

Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

You know how much I love to edit photos of my grandchildren for each holiday?

Well I have also edited lots of photos of my parents for the holidays to share on facebook.


Last Christmas I made this elf photo of Mom and Dad:

The great thing about the photo is that it is PNG. I can easily place them on any background.

So here is the pic I shared on facebook:

Shortly after posting it, I thought of  "elf on a shelf" and posted this...



Of course, one thing led to another

and I ended up spending half of Christmas Day posting my elf parents

on different backgrounds

based on Christmas music lyrics....


Dashing Through The Snow


Up On The Rooftop



All I Want For Christmas Is Stew



Silent Knight


Blue Christmas


Do You Hear What I Hear?


They Know When You Are Sleeping


Santa Baby


Reindeer Games


Deck The Stalls


Crazy, I know. But I had so much fun. 

I hope you enjoyed them. 


Let me know which is your favorite.

Good morning Sharon. You are absolutely incredible! It is your skill but your sense of humor always comes through too. I like Sileny Knight the best.

Hello Sharon - "I have a theme this year. . .".  Of course,  you do. A smile-worthy post. I don't know how I missed it but glad Kathy included it in her weekly "Ah Ha" post.

Cute photography. Since Photo Shop is a subscription basis I have forgotten how to overlay these images.

Happy holidays,

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I'm glad you enjoyed my little elf marathon. LOL

Kathy Streib  thank you for including my post. I had no idea. We had our "Thanksgiving" on Sunday and houseguests since. I've not had time to check in!

Sheila Anderson  Thank you. I enjoyed doing each and every one of them. I do love Silent Knight, but I like many of them for all different reasons. I don't think I could pick a favorite.

Michael Jacobs  LOL...it wasn't intentional or planned. Just worked out that way. My parents being elves was actually last year...being shared here this year. The kids' shirts being elf themed was not really for any specific reason, other than availability and choice options.  My Wordless this week is elves because I found elf pics that had the right amount of characters. It's not like I put any thought into having a "theme".  (That is something I would do though, LOL)

Sam Shueh  I do so many of these pics, I can whip them out pretty fast. The hardest part for me is finding the bodies! LOL

Susan McCall, Everyone needs a home  Thank you! I haven't made a video in awhile. Hopefully I will get back to doing that at some point.

I'm glad you enjoyed this Christmas series of my folks...Yes, the captions were fun to come up with. Thank you!
