Three years ago when my blog was way in its infancy I launched the Monthly Crafting Challenge with a set of 13 sushi plushies 😀 I still look back on them fondly because they felt like the perfect little patterns to get things going.

Oh, yes 😀 After about 8 months of semi-hiatus, I’m finally back with more updates to the site! That is, back doing the thing that started me blogging in the first place: using up my scraps! In January of 2013 I realized my stash of fabrics weren’t doing me any favors and I finally needed to start chipping away at them, so I’ve been making little projects here and there and sharing the tutorials with you. I had to take a semi-hiatus for a while there as I wrote some new books, but I’m finally back with new projects to whittle down my stash.
These little trays came about because it was something I discovered I needed in my own home ^w^ I have a little vanity area that was in desperate need of organizing; specifically I needed something to hold my manicuring tools. I looked at what else could use a little help and found that I needed several more trays. I figured since I was doing a set of trays anyway I might as well make them themed. I hadn’t done any Avatar: The Last Airbender fanart as of yet, so I thought this would be a good chance to start. So, behold, a set of all 4 Avatar Nations as handy trays. For those that aren’t familiar with the show, we have the Air Nomads, Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom, and Fire Nation and their respective symbols. You don’t have to decorate them with the symbols of course; they work nicely on their own for sorting odds and ends.
