Much love for and Photoshop for making life at work and home just that more special.

I plunked my face inside an Elf on the Shelf-esque body, printed the image at Kinkos and then carefully cut out my elf creation so that I could hide it around the store and my house. (I made two elves.)

Then people laugh. And a few people at work have already taken to moving the elf around and hiding it on their own.
