Hanukkah Memory Box

Many of you know that I have created lovely little Christmas boxes. 

I pride myself in the fact that these were of my creations.

Imagine how honored I was when a friend of my sister’s asked me

if I would create 4 Hanukkah boxes to give as presents.

Well, I completed my project on Sunday and shipped the order to New Jersey promptly on Monday.

I didn’t want to post these before my customer receives them because I want her to be surprised.

delighted.

These arrived and I have to say, and not because you are my sister, they are beautiful!! Absolutely, beautiful!! When I opened the box, I was taken back. I'm not kidding.
