Thank you, Roger.

I’m not sure why the pictures are all rotated or whether it’s possible to correct that.

Sandy,
Concerning the image rotation – my experience has been if I take pictures using my iPhone it isn’t possible to rotate the images when I post them. If I use my Canon camera I can successfully rotate the images.

Thank you, Charles!

@Roger… I don’t understand why it should matter how a .jpg image is created, although I do acknowledge that my pics were taken using my iPhone. Also, they were upright when uploaded. Too bad there does not appear to be any way on the site to edit/rotate images once they have been uploaded.

Children love gifts as much as I love crafting them with my own hands. I too, prefer to hand-make gifts especially for family members. Your storage box looks really cute and grand. It would be great for the storage of toys and other smaller items that children always have in their possession.
