Hello! I am a married 30 yr old, living in TN.
I like to craft, read, hike, shop (especially for handbags and craft supplies, lol) and spend time with family.

I am here to lose weight, but the real goal isn't a magic number on the scale. It's feeling like/being a healthier me.

I look forward to 'meeting' you all!

hello
This is my First post, I'm from Wisconsin, used to do a lot of crafts. Went thru divorce 3 years ago and lost my motivation. But I'm back now! I do all kinds, scrapbooking, painting, x-stitching, crochet, knit, sew.... working on x-stitch for my daughter right now. It is helping me from snacking at night.
thanks for the support. emoticon

I am new on here and happy to see a group that keeps my hands busy and gets some of my projects done. I have been so focused on work and losing weight that I have lost some of the things I enjoy doing: rubber stamping, scrapbooking, yard art, jewelry, and general crafting. I am hoping the challenges get me going on my long overdue pages. Thanks for the encouragment to take the time for some of the things I enjoy.

Hi i am new here and want to get involved in some kind of craft that i can make for kids. I am having eye problems but can see when i take my glasses off and am close up. I actually have iritus which is a type of arturitus that attacks the eyes. With my glasses on my vision is 20/70 and 20/80 and the light just leaves me in a blurry state so i were sunglasses over my glasses when outside. It's been a month now and i am adjusting after going thru a poor me party that just adds to the problem i got. I am a christian and believe in miracles so i will do what i need to do to be happy . Right now i have to much idle time on my hands is why i want to get into some kind of litttle craft . I do cross stitch doing a plaque now and a set of pillow cases but would like to find alittle doll or something to do . Thank you for the team keeping buzy helps me not to eat so much ! emoticon

The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !

I am new to this team. I am looking forward to getting more scrapbooking done as well and loosing weight. I live in Michigan, along the "West" coast. Not to far from Lake Michigan. I am married with 2 daughters 12 and 9. I am currently working on my ED pre-K school year. I have finished developling pictures through 2008. I hope I am not the only person here who has lots of work to do to get caught up! emoticon

Hi everyone!

I have been struggling with everything lately. I had forgotten about this team and I am so happy I found it again! I am hoping to find some friends and support to help me through this rough time in my life. I really am excited to mean new people in here who love crafting as much as I do. :) What I like to craft is jewelry and accessories out of buttons and zippers. It has really been a therapy for me in my tough times. Does anyone else find it relaxing like I do???

Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.

I'm so glad I found this team! What better way to lose weight than to keep our hands busy. We just finished having a huge yard sale last weekend and I got rid of a lot of craft items. Don't worry, I have more. I used to work at a craft store and have accumulated all kinds of crafts. After purging the ones I decided I didn't want to do anymore, like knitting, I chose crafts that I really enjoy. Right now I am concentrating on scrapbooking, ATC's and mixed media, polymer clay, beading and jewellery. At the moment I am not working on anything but organizing my craft space. emoticon

Hi I am a newbie here. But I am not new to spark. I've been here for a while. I am from the east coast. Married with 3 kids. My mother taught me to crochet at age 11. I am now almost 52. I have been busy with helping to raise our kids. Now it is my time. I picked up crochet hook about two years ago and have made several items. I've crocheted in the past also was reallly into afghans. Now I like making smaller things. I have also started working with wire and beads. I must say that beading is addictive. LOL. any way here to do crafts and make friends while getting healthy. emoticon

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Hi I'm Ann I live in the San Francisco bay area. I haven't met a craft that I didn't like! I'm at a point in my life where I'm really evaluating what I enjoy doing and what I have time for. I love all things paper, cards, art journals, stickers, etc. I'm not so much of a scrapbooker. I don't want the books we just don't have room!! I love weaving, crochet, and and loosing interest in knitting because I never seem to finish the projects!! I'm looking forward to lots of crafty chat!

I am Ruthie and I live in North County San Diego. I retired from teaching last June, I am celebrating 38 years of wedded bliss next month, love the empty nest, have 2 grand children (one near by and the other just 2 hours away). My youngest youngest daughter is getting married next year. I have joyfully returned to crafts after decades of not doing anything except necessary sewing. I am working on an afghan and hope to complete a small scrap book before summer arrives.

Be gentle with yourself as you learn something new.

Hello everyone! My name is Tracy. Married with a 2 & 3/4 boy whom, among other things, we affectionately call "monster". I joined SparkPeople in February is this year and though I did want to lose weight from the beginning, I had a hard time getting past 5 pounds lost. There was some holiday/birthday/something else that made me fall off the wagon and gain some weight back. Now I've gotten really serious (and more educated) about my weight loss, so I'm almost down to my lowest point yet and hope to keep going.

As far as scrapbooking goes, I've been at it for about 6 years. Not much into card making, more into scrapbooking, though I do have a small stamp collection. I signed up as an independent consultant with Memory Works (scrapbooking supplies), and really like it. I honestly haven't made much money at it, and I'm trying to branch out into scrapbooking for others as well, but I do love the products and don't see them when I go to Joann, Michaels, or other craft stores. So once I'm in the money a little (working temp jobs, trying to get a permanent one), I can buy some stuff.

I love to find other scrapbookers, so I'm really glad I'm here! Good luck to everyone and let's scrap!

Hi everyone! My name is Becci, I live in Massachusetts, I'm divorced with no children and also am disabled by a Traumatic Brain Injury. I do have a slight mobility issue but get as much exercise as I can by walking in my building or even on the treadmill. I have been scrap book style card making for several years and 2 years ago was given many, many rubber stamps. I enjoy stamping very much and often combine the two medias. Been on Spark since October 2011 and have been struggling pretty hard to lose. Anything!! I always look forward to support from all of you and hope that you realize that when I say that I care, I'm serious!

emoticon Introducing Myself to the Scrap & Craft to Lose Crew...

Hello All...My name is Stephanie (this is always so awkward for me I mean what do I say now? Do I give you my resume, or my life history, what's not enough, and what's too much?) Okay I guess I'll start with I am the mother of three girls ages 3, 9, and 15 so my life is hectic to say the least. I am the quintessential "yo-yo" dieter Up, Down, Up, Down, Up...Up..UP! I really want to break that cycle this go around and remain in a healthy, comfortable weight range for life. I love crafting and scrapbooking and take serious pride in my gift wrapping and party planning. If I ever win the lottery I'd open my very own event planning company (I should probably buy a ticket more than once a year...heehee)! I look forward to getting to know many of you and having a support system on this journey.

Hello everybody! I'm new to this board and to Spark People in general. I've been scrapping for 10 years now. I've been published everywhere from CK to Scrapbooks Etc and so on and so forth, but I haven't done it in a while since I have become really passionate about knitting and crocheting. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon. Anybody want to suggest a project for me to get started? Swing by my page to get to know me a little better.

emoticon everyone. I've been on Spark for almost a month and I really like the site. There is so much information. I don't scrapbook but I used to do a lot of rubber stamping, making cards and gifts, etc. Right now, I am sewing a blouse for my daughter and making some wall art for my living room. I want to paint the walls and when I do, I want to hang something new. I am also trying to learn machine embroidery.

One day at a time; one pound at a time.

Greetings all. I just found this great site last week. I want to get my weight down and this is it. I am 56 years old, and married to my best friend for 35 years in May. I teach Cosmetology to high school students (26 years now). I am also a Creative Memories Consultant since April of 2000.

I love to scrapbook for my family as well as many other crafts. Sewing, card making, stamping, crocheting and knitting. I want to learn to quilt when I retire from teaching. I love to stay busy.

I look forward to getting to know you all ( from the south lol) and "loose" weight doing so,

Vickie

Hello, my name is Ria. I'm a stay at home mom to a two year old. If it's crafty I will try it at least once. My favorite thing to do is sew. I don't get as much time to as I would like between making sure the kid isn't destroying the house and taking care of everything. I admit that sometimes the house is a mess because I'm trying new crafts with him. He's not always ready for some of them and I'm googling ways to get food dye out of my curtains.

Hi, My name is Christina, I am a mother and grandmother, 3 children and 2 grandchildren, I am 51 years old. I love sewing, knitting and crochet and have done a bit of scrapbooking. I saw a blog on Spark People that gave me the idea of recording my journey to goal, with pictures and such. I cannot find that inspirational person again. Anyway using Publisher I am recording everything that I do, inspiration, motivational and other wise. I started by taking a photo of myself and inserting it into Publisher. I thought if I keep this record on my computer then it is for my eyes only. And writing everything down is getting things off my chest as well.

Cheers
Christina

Hi - You can call me Mal... :) I'm loving SparkPeople so I thought I would find a couple other Teams to join - this one sounded great since I'm all about the crafting and have fallen in love with the loosing. I'm down 7 lbs from my start - enjoying my stationary cycle and have started a SmashJournal for this journal. Thanks for being here. You're awesome!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Melanie and I am a mother of a 2 and 5 year old girl. I am a massage therapist and love scrapbooking, both traditional and digital and love making journals and altered hybrid projects. Distressing is my new passion. I have a very busy life, but love to scrapbook and do crafts whenever I can find the time.

I want to be about 150 pounds, so I have a long way to go, but step by step I'll get there. :)

Hi - I am new to spark pages but it is helping me to visually track my progress I think. I have a lot of weight to lose. Making a lot of life changes right now opening a new business and moving to another state. I love all forms of creativity and want to scrap/journal the start of my new business ( a tea room) and all the other changes in my life that I am blessed with right now. I have time now for crafting, something I haven't had in a while. I also am a single mom to an amazing 15 year old daughter.

My name is Deb and I emoticon to stamps and make cards.
I have a craft room full of stamp sets, inks, tools, paper and other necessities!
I try to make at least 1 card a day, and have minimum 1 day a month to spend in my "room". emoticon
I also have about 40 scrapbooks (all still in wrappers emoticon ) and thousands of pictures to scrap. Perhaps one day I will get to it... but I find card making more rewarding. I sell my cards at work and at craft fairs... making money to buy more stamps emoticon

I live in a small town in Halton Hills, Ontario. My BFF is the one who got me into stamping. We are each others biggest supporters on our weight loss journey. Between the two of us, we have lost a total of 60 lbs emoticon since May 1st, 2011. We are not following the same "life style change" but we still encourage each other all the time. I am Doing the Dukan Diet as I have found it the easiest one FOR ME.

Glad I was able to find another crafting team to join!

Hi, Angela,
I was just wondering if you have a buddy yet? I just got back on here and am also looking for a buddy. I, too, have an Etsy shop, and love stamping, colored pencils, antiques, painting/refurbishing old furniture, etc. I am also struggling with anxiety/depression and have a goal of losing 50 lbs. this year. Blessings,
Jerusha (Jeri)

Hi....my name is Gail, and I've been crafting on and off for years. I'm a novice knitter, crocheter and I also enjoy Scrapbooking and Card making and have bought my self some learning tools for wood carving. Problem is my crafting is like my weight management....I keep getting side tracked and lose focus. ....I totally empathize with you girls who are out of work...I've been down sized twice. It's nice to have time to do things, but then you don't have the $. My husband is retired and I work full/time. I have 2 grown sons and 5 grandchildren. I would really enjoy making friends and giving as well as receiving support with my motivation. Have a great day and a Healthy, Happy 2012 everyone.

Hi everyone! My name is Angela. I have been crafting for a little over a year. I actually opened a shop on Etsy if you want to check it out. But that isnt important right now. What is important is I am lost. I have been struggling to start losing weight ever since I lost my job in March. I had to quit my gym for expense reasons and I just havent really worked out much, so all of the weight I had already lost is slowly coming back. I am slowly getting more depressed and I just know I need to do something about it, but I have found I can't do it alone. I am hoping to find some friends on here that can help me out and motivate me to stay on top of everything again. So... with that said, anyone out there wanna be my weight loss/motivation buddy?

Oh and heres my Etsy shop if you wanna see it:

Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.

Hello:
My name is Cheryle and I am a want-a-be crafter. The supplies in the stores are always calling my name. They drag me to the check out counter and end up on a shelf in my "craft room". No kidding, but this last Sept. I was laid off and now I want to clean the shelves. Has anyone here hear or read about Etsy. It's sound like a great place. I want to start making stuff and list on their site. Besides crafts, I enjoy facebook games and going shopping with my husband, who loves grocery stores. He coupons and everything. Cool, right? My children are grown and I have two grandchildren. They are awesome!! Well, that's me. emoticon

Hello everyone. My name is Lola and love to craft. Prefer to make something new out of something old or discarded. Loving the learning process to become good at crocheting. Recently began to understand how read a pattern. I love to scrapbook as well.

Need to lose 23 pounds. I am discouraged at the present, however each morning I get recharged with a new purpose and goal. I am very conscious of what I Eat. Plan to go to doctor in a few more weeks to be re-weighed as he recently told me I needed to lose weight in a non-professional manner. I was discouraged, but reborn with newer determination. My scale is off, will wait till next appt. to share my true weight. BMI is 32. I know what to do, just need a few good consistent, dedicated friends to support and encourage me as I do the same for them. Everyone have a great day. emoticon

Hi, I'm Mollie and I enjoy knitting, sewing, and various kinds of crafting. I do some paper crafts but not much scrapbooking. I am on a journey to change my life and I just re-entered Spark people for the first time since 2008. I have 50 lbs to lose, eating habits to change, and activity levels to increase.

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm Cindy, mommy to 5 year old identical twin girls. I am married for 10 1/2 years now and loving it. Together we live in York Pa. For those of you have never heard of it, we are about 20 minutes south of Harrisburg and about 45-1hour north of Baltimore MD.

I got into scrapbooking and stamping about 10-12 years ago. I prefer making cards and re-purposing other items with paper. Don't get me wrong I love to scrap too, but my real talent is in the cards. I am even trying to start my own business with the items that I make. We'll see how that goes..LOL

I joined SP in June...I am changing how I look at food and how I use it. I am taking baby steps. But it's not about a diet for me, or even being skinny...I want it to be done right so that I can lead a happy, healthy, long life so that I can be around to see my great grandchildren.

I love TTR in Hershey. I was just there for my birthday around the 18th of October. My husband went and sat in the car while he listened to the PSU game on the radio. He knew I'd be in there for a long time...LOL I've gone to the one in Lancaster too but it's not as big and they don't do crops there.

If there ate any of you that would like to get a crop together for Hershey I am game. I am always up for some girls time and crafting.

I have a friend who is a Close To My Heart rep and we have workshops once a month. I wish they were more often, but at least we get together. I love the clear stamps and the option to do cards and pages. If any of you would like to come to a workshop we would love to have any new people.

I guess that's enough about me now...LOL Looking forward to being active here and learn more about each of you.

Because I am worth it!!

Cindy
York, PA

Hi there

I like scrapbooking, writing poetry, making things, photography. And anything that you can get your hands messy in and have a great result.

Sounds like you have an awful lot of fun with scrapbooking! An entire book:in 5weeks?! I accept your challenge! Started SP yesterday and love this team: especially how many other people are just as crazy as I am. We all have the same goal: losing weight while crafting. It is a self-soothing activity and it's great to be able to share the experience.
