Wreath of Excellence 2022 Winners

Our sincere thanks are extended to all those who participated in the Wreath of Excellence 2022. An astonishing 116 entries were received for this year’s competition! A special thank you to the Elf Academy Admins for their generous donations to the Wreath of Excellence prize pack. Five prize packs were mailed totaling $475.00!

It was a tough competition with many amazing displays from all Elf Academy scholars. Each participant made each day especially festive by sharing their elves with all of us. We know that photographing and sharing takes a considerable amount of time, especially when sleep is in short supply. I know that I am not alone when I say that each morning I looked forward to seeing all the elf photos! We hope everyone enjoyed the event and found inspiration from what all Elf Academy scholars shared.

A special thanks and congratulations to this year’s Wreath of Excellence winners! The talents and creativity you bring to our group are greatly appreciated. Thank you for being a part of Elf Academy. We are very proud to have such an amazing group of elfketeers who inspire the spirit of Christmas in us all.

As a result of your support, Elf Academy continues to uphold its mission to promote sharing and ideas. We look forward to seeing everyone again for the Wreath of Excellence 2023 and the annual Elf Return Week project!

This now concludes our,
Twelve days of Christmas.
Weโ€™ll be off to the North Pole,
But not before our wishes.

We wish you a season,
Full of love and laughter.
To you and your family,
For Christmas and thereafter.

He claims his wish is bigger,
Since my coin is much smaller.
Weโ€™ll WISH you a Merry Christmas,
And toss them into the water.

Reimagined Christmas Magic

The elves in this set have been reimagined. Their former life was that of Christmas stocking holders. The FabYULEus Elf Duo could not resist their cute little faces when an online thrift store offered them for sale. It took a little love and care, along with Santa’s Christmas magic, to turn them into North Pole elves. It is no longer their destiny to hang stockings during Christmas, and they are now eager to share their Christmas magic with their new family.

Prior to receiving Santaโ€™s Christmas Magic, these elves were Christmas Stocking hangers.

Restoring the Magic of an Elf

It is unfortunate that this sweet little elf had burn marks on his white mittens, as well as staining on his white bib and hat. That, however, is nothing that can’t be resolved by the FabYULEus Elf Duo! As a way of restoring some glimmer and magic back to his life, we decided to replace his white trim with lime green trim. We are confident that The Grinch would approve of our color choice. His look was completed with a matching mistletoe embellishment and retrofitted for standing and posing. He now looks as spiffy as the day his family adopted him from the store.

Taylorโ€™s Unique Christmas Plaid Elf

There is no doubt that this is a unique and special elf. He wears a one-of-a-kind black and red Christmas plaid jumper. In addition to being retrofitted for standing or posing, FabYULEus Elf Duo hand-sewed his plaid jumper. This little elf was commissioned for Taylor, who is a very special person to the FabYULEus Elf Duo. There is great anticipation in this little elf’s heart as he makes his journey to his new home to meet Taylor.

Santaโ€™s Enchanted Mailbox

Itโ€™s hard to believe only twenty days remain until the first of December. In light of this, are you prepared to welcome the return of your elf? With Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox, you can enhance your holiday decorations or elf adventures this year with a touch of North Pole magic.

Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox is a magical device that harmoniously pairs with Santa’s little helpers. This magical mailbox miraculously sends letters directly to the big man at the North Pole. Children simply place their letter into Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox, close the door, raise the arm, and a magical jingle sounds, and presto – the letter quickly vanishes. A true Christmas miracle whisks the letter away and transports it to the North Pole right before their eyes!

Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox is offering a limited time promo code exclusively to FabYULEus Elf Duo followers. To receive 10% off, visit SantasEnchantedMailbox.com and enter promo code SEMFAM2021. And donโ€™t forget to download the FREE BOOK!

In 2019, our elves delivered Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox for the first time. In the month of November, our children eagerly anticipate the delivery of Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox so that they can remain in contact with Santa throughout the holiday season. Our children have been captivated by this magical mailbox and are always excited to share it with their friends and family. Christmas in our family is not complete without this mailbox.
