I love a little bit of creepiness so this week for SPA I've chosen the theme of KRAMPUS
 Last weekend, I did a craft fair with my friend Anne (pictured below) ~ look at our stall... gorgeously Christmassy but did we sell anything? well technically we did, however neither of us made enough for the stall. But the words of wisdom from Miz Lils is... it's the experience that matters!

 a couple of my altered boxes.

my vintage santa tag for tagalongs Vintage Santa theme

 It was a holiday children theme on Lunagirl this past week.
