WELCOME to the group, I'm in the USA I'm sure there are other Canadians in the group. Post whatever floats your boat.

Right now I am in the middle of a total kitchen and partial bath redo, on week 5 and they are almost done

Hi there
I've been on SparkPeople in the past but am back after a few years away. I love DIY and do alot of crafting so am always interested in seeing what other ideas people have and what their projects look like.
I live in Ontario, Canada. Any other Canadians in the group?

Hello!

I am new to this team. As my family all have green thumbs and I do not, I thought I would join this team to learn. I am so-so at DIY though. Do you consider DIY craft projects on this team? If so, that would be super.

Looking forward to the fellowship and learning experience!

Hi, there! I'm joining this team hoping to find the motivation to "get it together". I like the accountability that comes with joining challenges on SP and the back-and-forth chatter that lets me get to know such nice people. From browsing this team's threads, I see a lot of talent out there and hope to "up my game". I think July will be one winner of a month!

emoticon ... I just wrote a nice paragraph introducing myself and wouldn't you know when I was about to post it kicked me off line so here I am starting all over again LOL.
I retired on January 1 of this year and hat and have been wanting to join this team since now I will have more free time to do things like start a vegetable garden when it decides to stop raining...( Have a raised bed and plan to plan a simple garden).. Just got back from Costco and bought a little compost container to keep on my counter so I can start making compost... I have had some successful gardens in the past but it's been a long time and so I still consider myself an amateur and look forward to learning things that I know I will on this team... emoticon

Hi! I'm Eva from West Tennessee. I'm a 36 year old homemaker. We're in the process of home improvements, such as the raised garden bed you can see on my blog. We are big on DIY because it ends up saving us a small mint.

I'm currently in maintenance, so my focus is less on weight loss and more on continuing to live a healthy life style. I try to be a role model for my 8 year old daughter. I also enjoy teaching her skills she just doesn't get in school, like cooking and gardening.

Hello all! My name is Tarah. I am married to my high school sweet heart and we have three wonderful children ages 10, 4, and 3. I have recently discovered gardening as an escape. I'm known in my family as a "Black Thumb" but I'm hoping I can learn enough to at least turn it a dark shade of green :)

I'm Linda, I been with SparkPeople for over a year now. Love living in the country and doing projects. I just moved to a new place and want to start a garden and get some chickens. My fitness activity has been cutting down and clearing out a huge ramble of entwined blackberry vines, muscadine vines and a broken down fence before mosquitos and snakes get too bad. It's slow and hard work but glad to see some progress albeit SLOW, lol.

Hi, I'm new here although I admit I have signed up several times over the past year and not stayed with it very long! We have moved 3 times in the past year and are now settled, thankfully, and so I believe I can do better this time. I need to stay focused on losing the pregnancy weight I put on. I gained 70 pounds. I'm only 5 feet tall and so it is a lot on my frame. And on my feet! I have 40 pounds to go to get to my pre-pregnancy weight. I gained similarly with each of my other pregnancies too (I have 5 children) and the weight came off but it was harder each time. I'm 41 and can tell my metabolism has slowed down and my motivation has dwindled too. Hopefully this site will be helpful to give me a boost to get started and stay focused past more than a few days! :)
