Thanksgiving will be here soon…

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!! All of the elves have been busy getting ready to celebrate the holiday. Do not worry, we are still very busy at The Ornament Factory shipping out all of the orders. Thankfully we have been able to get a few more elves to help us out. As we are working we keep talking about all of food we will be making for Thanksgiving. I do not know about you but I am looking forward to mashed potatoes! What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Traditions….

Family traditions are always special around the holidays. We have a tradition of watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade every year. I always get excited at the end when Santa shows up. It is always nice to see the big guy. We also have the tradition of putting up more Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. Hopefully it will not be too cold outside.

2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments I am Excited About….

I have a few more trees to put up in my home right after Thanksgiving. One of the 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments I am excited to put up is the 2018 Christmas Belle, from the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast. This is a Premium ornament that comes in a special box.

Another 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament I am excited to put on my tree is the Christmas Commemorative #6. The stunning color will look amazing with the lights on my tree.

The last Hallmark Keepsake Ornament I want to share with you today is the 2018 Thru the Mirror, Mickey’s Movie Mouseterpieces #7. All of my Christmas trees have at least one Micky Mouse Hallmark Keepsake Ornament in them. This one here would be good for the card player in your family.

An Elf’s Work is Never Done….Good Thing We Love What We Do!

Being an elf is a very special job. Not everyone get to be an elf and have fun while working at the Ornament Factory. Life is not all about work for us though, we do know how to let loose and have a good time. Little Daniel the Elf here! I was hoping to share with you all about a typical day for me.

My morning…..

A typical morning for me and the other elves starts out with waking up and getting some exercise in. Exercise is a great way to start your day. Do you enjoy exercising or know someone who does. This Gym Dandy Hallmark Keepsake Ornament would be a great ornament to give someone who enjoys their time at the gym.

After some exercise, which usually includes walking my my sweet dog, Charlie, I eat my breakfast. I’m not super picky about what I eat for breakfast so I usually have a bowl of cereal or some scrambled eggs.

This is an Hallmark Keepsake Ornament that reminds me of when my Charlie was just a puppy. It is Puppy Love #14. Look for a future blog about the Hallmark Ornament Puppy Love series.

After all of that, it is time to head to The Ornament Factory to get to work. When we arrive there we have to check on the orders that have come in over night and start pulling those from the selves. Check out this cool 2018 Hallmark Ornament! It is Chutes and Ladders, Family Game Night #5.

By Mid Day…….

By mid day we have lots of orders boxed and labeled ready to be picked up. Lunchtime is always enjoyable being able to hang out with the other elves. Elliott the Head Elf here at The Ornament Factory always makes sure that we aren’t taking too long of a lunch break. Most of the time, the elves have a sandwich and chips for lunch. All of the elves have different lunch boxes. We have matching Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments for our lunchboxes. Brandon the Elf has the Star Wars lunch box. He’s a big Star Wars fan!

Little Daniel the Elf has the Mickey Mouse lunchbox. He has Mickey Mouse everything!

It is always nice to chat with everyone else about what is going on in their lives and what they have coming up. I also really like that I can get dinner ideas from my friends. After a great lunch with the other elves it is back to work we go.

Ending Our Work Day…..

Lots of boxes have been packed and labeled, ready to be shipped out tomorrow. Lots of Hallmark Ornaments have been pulled from the shelves while many have been restocked to the shelves after they were inventoried. The floors have been swept and the counters have been wiped down. Our day has come to an end. After a great day working we like to make sure we clean up around the workshop so we can start the next day easier.

I hope you have enjoyed this small incite into my day. Time to get back to it!

Elliott, the Head Elf
