this is a basket i made for our family reunion a couple of years ago. our family plays an arts and crafts swap where we make handmade items, wrap them up in newspaper and draw numbers to open a package or steal one from someone else and it can get pretty intense. we have refined it down to where we play like the game show- deal or no deal. we use a foam dice with steal and no steal on the sides and roll in the order of the drawn numbers. if you get stolen from your name goes back on the list and the competition is over when the last package is opened. the only people playing in the game are the ones that submitted a craft to the mix. try this at your family gatherings, you will have a blast.

Beautiful basket Woodman. We auction off items at our reunion. Everyone brings something for the auction. There are quite a few homemade items each year. It pays the bills and we have a blast as well. I usually act as the auctioneer and like to get siblings in the different sides of the family, competing for items.

Lovely and well designed basket, I bet everybody would like to steal that on your reunion.
