Through the Purple Haze Secret Santa Blog Hop

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you're not snowed in, wherever you may be!  We were supposed to get about three inches but ended up getting nothing.  Bummer!  Even though we've already missed 4 1/2 days of school due to ice, I already wanted another snow day.  Is that bad? ;-)

Welcome to the Secret Santa Blog Hop for Through the Purple Haze!  If you came here from Anita's blog, then you're in the right place!  If you just happened upon my blog, you should start at Anita's blog, where you'll also find the entire lineup.

Today the Design Team is going to be sharing with you the gifts we received from our Secret Santa on the team.  I got a box FULL of great things!

I think there was also a really cute globe-like thing my Secret Santa made using an extra-small fish bowl and an extra-small flower pot, but the globe was broken when the package came. :-(  I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to be able to put a new globe on it and salvage it or not.  

I hope you all had a great Christmas and/or holiday season!  Your next stop  is Becky.  But WAIT--there's more!  I've got a bag of goodies to give away!!!  Here's what you need to do:

1.  Become a follower of my blog; and
2.  Leave a comment telling me EITHER your favorite Christmas present this year OR your favorite thing about this time of year (Sorry, but comments that do not include this will not be included in the drawing.).

For an EXTRA ENTRY into the drawing, share this on your blog, Twitter, or Facebook, and leave a separate comment saying you did so.  THAT'S IT!  The giveaway will stay open until this Friday, January 10.  I'll draw a winner and post on Saturday, January 11.

I hope you enjoy this blog hop, and be sure to come back NEXT Monday for the first Through the Purple Haze challenge of 2014!  Enjoy the hop, good luck, and happy scrapping!
