Game time!

I'm still here. Still not quite myself but trying to stay busy and distract myself with being crafty. Oh and watching basketball. It's probably the thing keeping me together these days. Forget Christmas--Basketball season is the most wonderful time of the year! So I decided to put together a little something for my friend Beth and her kids.  She's a fellow Orange fan & alum. 

I gathered up some fun stuff (basketball plates, blowouts, orange utensils, cups, napkins, Syracuse chocolates, Otto kisses, bubbles, straws...)
Put it in a big orange bucket that I got at the Family Dollar during Halloween time  I modgepodged a few Syracuse basketball graphics on it and tied some ribbons to the sides.
Before I put the fun stuff in it, I added a swag that I made as the basket filler (this is like the swag I used for the Christmas tree and now hangs on my porch windows)
I fashioned up some Otto Kisses (I rewrote the little poem based on the snowman kisses thing I found--I like this one way better)
After everything was in place I shrink wrapped a gift basket bag to the bucket and tied it up with some fun ribbon.
 
I thought it was fun and I think it's a good idea for a spirit bucket for a fan!  I might have to market this during March.  But only for teams I like...

That is super adorable! I may borrow the idea for something down the road. I know a few people who enjoy things like this. Good job!
