How It Started

Parents feel so much pressure to be “perfect” -

From making sure they spend hours cooking a healthy, homemade dinner to creating elaborate elf stunts around the holidays. 

Kristen was inspired to write her first children’s book, An Elf’s Journey Home, after waking up the third morning in a row having forgotten to move her children’s elf. Her goal was to provide her children with a graceful way to move on to the next chapter in their holiday traditions.

I wanted to create a story that fostered the magic of Christmas while giving families an option to move on to the next chapter of their holiday traditions.
