Knee Deep In the Hoopla!

Anyone else remember that album?  Starship came out with it in, I think, 1985.  I wasn't very old then, just barely a teenager but boy I thought Starship was pretty dang cool.  I think I still know every word to "We Built This City."  Oh ya, back to my point, Starship wasn't really what I wanted to share, I just thought of them because I feel like I'm knee deep in somethin'!  Hoopla?  Maybe.  Something else?  Yep. A mess to be exact.  I'm not a clean crafter and have paper and piles spread everywhere right now.

I'm preparing for a church event that is tomorrow and am currently working on these:


If you are new here, you can read about them and get the tutorial on how to make them from just 1 - yep, ONE - sheet of 12x12 paper here.  Paper Baskets

They work great for all kinds of things, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, mine are getting a new look with a love theme.  Awww!  I'm also working a some new treat holders too but can't post those until after the event, they are top secret and all.

And in other news, remember the drawing from last week.  The winner, AH, made her decision and has picked this... 


She wanted it made it brown and I'm almost done.  I'll be sure to post it before I ship it off.  For now though, it's back to the... hoopla!

Smiles,
Amy

P.S. Thanks for all your nice comments about my Country Woman Magazine post.  I really appreciate you all sharing in my excitement.

My sister and I are going to make your wee boxes for her wedding we think!

Also, what a lovely necklace.

I love those paper baskets and am fairly new so will go and investigate how to make them. They're great for presents. Lucky lady who won the necklace!
