A Place for Everything and Everything In It's Place

In my own life...I wish this was true....
My hexagons were stuffed and crammed into a zip lock back...
Then I saw a plain cardboard lunch box at Target.

I did a little stitching...

and some gluing...

And now I have a proper place for my hexies!
