Monday Montage 198 Pretty Pillow Box Dies

This last weekend was crazy eventful.  My Utes won their first conference game of  the year.  It wasn't a pretty win, lots to work on, but glad we came out with the W.  The stadium was super hot - came home completely wiped out.  One of the players was killed last night.  A fellow co-worker died of covid last week.  Friend was in a crazy car accident.  It just makes me realize even more that People Matter, being kind and good to each other matters.  In the scheme of things, touchdowns, fumbles, broken fingernails and whether I have enough diet coke in the fridge doesn't matter.

Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop - Make sure you make it all the way through by hitting the Next button - you won't want to miss a thing!!!!

I opted to play with the Pretty Pillows Die which is sold as an accessory to the  Gingerbread bundle.  I wanted to showcase some cute ideas that are not Christmas.  I love me a treat holder.  These will hold a gift card, hershey nuggets, or bite size candy bars, chapstick and whatever else you want to try to fit in there!

The closure on this is done with a magnet a washer
