Secret Santa Blog Hop + Fan Freebies {From The Elementary Entourage}

I can't even tell you all how much I love the month of December! The collaborative blog that I am lucky enough {{and so proud}} to be part of, The Elementary Entourage, is having a Secret Santa Blog Hop this month! Here's how it works: (1) You'll get to hop through to see what special treats we sent to each other and (2) you'll get a treat for yourself! Ready to hop?

My Secret Santa this year is the oh-so inspiring and beautiful Stephanie from Mrs. D's Corner. I just love that she was my Secret Santa because we have a lot in common. I am also a "Mrs. D" who's favorite place to visit is the beach and I have a passion for teaching just like she does! If you haven't ever visited her blog you definitely should today because she is amazing and so creative! Visit Stephanie here ---> Mrs. D's Corner and her IG account which I also love is ---> @mrsdscorner.

 I was so surprised to find this beautiful card with my name on it. Isn't it so festive? I am thinking of asking Stephanie to turn this into a font just for me! There was such a sweet message on the inside and let's just say I will be keeping this card for a long time.
When I opened my gift I found this stunning Tory Burch coin case. I absolutely love it! And, confession... this is my first Tory Burch anything! Wasn't Stephanie so thoughtful? 

 I have to admit that since I got this beautiful gift from Stephanie, I have since put some other Tory Burch items on my Christmas list for Santa!
Here's what the inside of the case looks like. I love the gold key ring and there are a couple of flaps on the inside that hold my wallet and license. This will make life so easy when I don't want to drag around my other huge wallet.

Before I get to my special treat, I just want to say a HUGE "thank you" to my dear friend Stephanie for this gift! I really feel appreciated as a friend and I know she went out of her way to do something very special for me.

You can grab my All About Evergreens Lapbook Freebie here! It's my little treat to you as a way to say a huge, "Thank you" for taking the time to stop by my page and for your part in my blogging journey this year. I am especially grateful for you and can't wait to see what 2016 brings! 


  1. How cool is that coin purse? Beautiful!!!!! Just like you! I love the new watermark, too! Thanks for letting us be a part of EE! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. Was your evergreen lapbook a limited time freebie? (Late to the party, as usual!)
