Greetings from California!

Hello! My name is Natasha and I normally blog at all dressed up and nowhere to go, but I'm very excited to join you all here for the Crafty Christmas Club! I can't wait to share my ideas and get some inspiration from all of you.
I guess to get started I should sort out a few of the ideas floating around in my mind.

A couple of months ago I made embroidered handkerchiefs for my dad's birthday. Now I'm thinking of making a set for my grandma.

For my cousin Liz I would like to make a stuffed animal elephant because she told me she liked the one I made for our other cousin's baby. I've really enjoyed making plush toys recently so I may put together a few others. The Wee Wonderfuls doll book would definitely be helpful!

I have a couple of ideas for my sister Clare. I think I would like to make her something with cross stitching like this bird purse... maybe a cross stitch of her dog? I'm also considering the Wenlan Blouse from BurdaStyle as an option.

For my mom I would like to make a bag and maybe one of these cute strawberry pillows because she collects strawberry knick knacks. My other idea isn't handmade, but it may interest you fellow crafters... the book "Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People" by Amy Sedaris because I bet it's hilarious.

Well, there are a few people missing, but that's what I have for now! I'll keep brainstorming and maybe it's about time to get started!
