first off I'm not Jewish but I liked this book to see what different crafts that they might do. My fav. was the beer can candle holders.
Absolutely had me in stitches the whole time! My only gripe, (of course there had to be SOME kvetching), is the lack of photos on some projects. "Would it kill ya to put a few more photos in? Nu?"
Beautiful kitsch photos and visual puns of yiddishkeit. If you don't understand that term, you wouldn't get the book, but no loss, its only funny for a quick flip-through anyway.
A must for all Jewish crafters. Worth reading for the Neil Tzedakah box alone. How could I not have thought of this?!?
Do yourself a favor, Bubbeleh, and read every word. (Wish my Hebrew school had used this curriculum!)
