Muffin tin challenge 2017

What is the Muffin Tin Challenge? You can read more about it here on Heather Power's Blog

I started off with NO muffin tin. I don't bake. In the beginning, I used my Boyfriend's fly tying containers...but I didn't quite feel right with out a muffin tin. 


I ended up getting some disposable ones at the Grocery store. I loved this challenge so much though, I am thinking of getting a vintage muffin tin to be able to continue to create like this. I got so much done!

Here is my loaded tin, with beady muffin mix

And here are my pieces!
