Rosh HaShanah is Coming!!

I don't know if you know that holiday so I'll tell you a little bit about it (or in other words - I'll quote Wikipedia):

Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish holiday commonly referred to as the "Jewish New
Year". It is observed on the first day of Tishrei, the seventh month of
the Hebrew calendar, as ordained in the Torah. Rosh Hashanah is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim ("Days of Awe"), or Asseret Yemei Teshuva (The
Ten Days of Repentance), the most solemn days of the Jewish year, which
conclude with the holiday of Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is
the start of the civil year in the Hebrew calendar (one of four "new year"
observances that define various legal "years" for different purposes).

Anyways, so every "Rosh Hashanah" we exchange gifts or at least greeting cards with our friends and family members.

Like every weeks for the last month or so I met with 4 other friends of mine (you'll more about them soon...) and we exchanged gifts (although we said that we won't... lol).

Look at what I got from them:

I'll go from left to right: Tamar gave me a little bag of goodies (Ribbons, Brads, Tags etc...); Diana gave me an altered box (loaded with sweet cookies inside); Ronit gave me the cute card, on the bottomof the picture, that holds 2 "sets" of cookies (you see only one "set"... I ate the other one...); and Maya gave me a home made jam with a tilda greeting card.

I love you guys! Thank you!

I hope you all have a great year!
