Muffin Tin Monday Swap!
I am putting together a little swap for all Muffin Tin Meal lovers out there. This swap is open to anyone and everyone who wants to join in. If you decide you want to participate you will be paired up with another participant who have children around the same age.
A very special thank you to Stephanie of A Pocket Full Of Buttons for creating the great MTM Swap button for us! She rocks! Stop over to her blog to tell her so!
Here are some of the fine details:
~The deadline to enter is July 31st. ***Deadline extended to August 2!!
~To participate, you must send me (via email at vistamommy(at)yahoo(dot)com) your address, names (optional) and ages of your kids that will be enjoying the swap package, and a brief Muffin Tin Meal "wish list". You must also include the button above (linking back to either Her Cup Overfloweth or this direct post. ) in your sidebar from the time you sign up to the time the swap is over. If you are unsure of how to do this, email me!
~ You will recieve an email by August 3rd with your partner particiapnt's info.
~You will then purchase Muffin Tin Meal accessories between $10-$20 + shipping. No more than that. I chose this amount because of the price of muffin tins. You do what you can afford. We all understand these hard ecomonic times. Below I will give some suggestions for you to make it more cost effective.
~You will have until August 18th to purchase/create your muffin tin monday swap package and send it out!
~On a date yet to be deteremined, I will be doing a MTM Swap Feature where we can all link up and see each other's swap packages.
~This swap IS open to international participants. Please indicate if you would be willing to ship internationally.
~You also do not need to have a blog to participate, just send me an email and I will connect you with another participant!
Sound like fun? Then shoot me an email!
Here are some ways to make your package more budget-friendly.
~Even before you know who your partner is, be scouring thrift stores and garage sales for muffin tins that are clean & in good condition. They can be 12 or 6 cup (or whatever).
~Tooth picks cost about $1 and you can add super cute tags with a little paper and glue to the ends.
~Disposable muffin tins and cookie cutters also can be found at the dollar store.
~ Discounted tins can be found at Walmart right now (star-shaped wilton 6-cup) in the 4th of july clearance for $4.50.
~Michael's and Joann's both sell cookie & cake decorating supplies and both accept each other's 40% off coupons! I purchased my flower silicone muffin cups there for 40% off (of $9.99) at Michael's.
~Party Supply stores carry cute food picks and forks and much more.
~bento box supplies are also a great way to go-"google" bento box supplies to see what's out there-they have rice and egg molds, colorful paper muffin cups, and much more!
