Hi my name is Judith, I'm new, but not to SP, I found the Team via my friend Patti, (PATTI_PAL1) I enjoy doing all kinds of crafts, Paper Bows, creating fancy gift baskets, wood and wicker crafting, card and scrap-booking and knitting. I used to do Rug Hooking but it is too hard on my hands and crocheting too. My knitting projects are a scarf for me and dishcloths, future plans are making a small afghan for my living-room, it will look nice on my chair and will be cozy for a cold winter's night to snuggle in...My projects for Christmas Stocking Stuffers are coffee cup cozies and dishcloths. When my scarf is made I will go between those 2 crafts and maybe had the afghan for in between times when I want something different to do. emoticon

Welcome, Sandi! I'm glad you found our team, too!

One time my crafting group made thank-you cards and handed them out to caregivers at the nursing homes. I can't remember who suggested it, but it was someone on a SparkTeam who did it every year in honor of her mother, I think. She invited others to join in and take them to their own local nursing homes.

I'm a paper-crafter and make greeting cards. I used to have my own card-making group in which we made and donated cards to our church to sell, and the funds went to the church. However, all good things must come to an end so now I just make them for friends and family....I LOVE it! My buddy Patti_Pal1 suggested I join this team...so here I am!

Thank you Patti_Pal and Improvingme for the welcome! :) Today I am doing some woodturning and making a black walnut and brass walking cane. I would be happy to post pictures of it when it is finished. :) The person it is being made for travels a lot, so it will be made to break down into 3 pieces so it can be easily packed in a suitcase.

Welcome to our team, Kristi! I'm not sure, but I don't think we have any other members on this team who turn wood. How interesting!
I hope you'll enjoy interacting with other members on this team and join us in discussions on our team pages.
Best wishes for 2015!

Hi Nancy, It's good to see you on this Team. You are an amazing crafter. I know you'll love the group and they will love you. (As I do)

Hi Kristi, Good to see you on here, too. I'm also from Washington though across the mountains in Lacey (Olympia area). You sure do a variety of crafts. Hope we can see some pictures soon.

Hello!! I just joined the team today :) My name is Kristy and I live in Central Washington State. I am in my mid-40s and enjoy about every craft there is. My main crafts are woodturning, wood working, crocheting, ceramics, pottery, as well as lotions and other personal care items. I plan to expand my current hobbies into knitting, blown glass, glass beading and possibly stained glass this year. I enjoy gardening, walking, video games and a nice cup of coffee with a good book.
Hope to get to know some people on this team to share ideas, knowledge and inspiration! :)

Kristy H.

Welcome, Nancy! Everything you are doing sounds so interesting to me. You must really stay busy with all the different arts and crafts and volunteering projects you have going on!
I have also found so many great ideas on Pinterest. Now I just need to follow through and make some of them.
Thanks for letting us know about what you enjoy!

Hello. It was suggested by Patty_Pal1 in Spin Me a Yarn that this is a great group, so that is how I found your guys.
I live in Bellevue, Nebraska.
I enjoy doing all sorts of things with my hands. I am a gardener and there are many garden related crafts and I keep thinking of more whenever I see something someone else has done, from making fairy gardens to building a patio, making baskets from the branches and stems of plants in the garden, to making concrete planters for the garden or bird feeders. I am a spinner and like all sorts of fiber related things and have raised angora rabbits for their wool, though am down to 1, from a high of 20 when my now 28 year old daughter was in 4-H to now, the last doe who is around 9. I like crochet, some knitting, felting, beading. embroidery, and sewing for starts. I also do welding sculpture. Most pieces are for the garden, but some things for the walls indoors. I also have some gourds from the garden and have done a few things with them, but collecting ideas on Pinterest to do something fun soon.
I volunteer at the Indian center and I try to find something crafty for the ladies to try every week, though as the weather gets warmer, we plan to do some gardening, cooking and crafts related more to the garden. I suppose it is not a "craft", but I also like to draw and did much more in the past, but have decided I am going to try to start drawing or painting more, hopefully this is the year.

Hi, Patti!
Mainly I am interested in working with paper -- bookbinding, book arts, and collage. I'm someone who sees something crafty on Pinterest or in a magazine, and then I'll want to try my hand with another new project. I spent this past week-end helping my grandchildren do mosaics, although I don't do near enough of mosaic work by myself. In the past I have taught calligraphy and worked on commissions, and someday I'll budget my time to get back to more of that, too. I enjoy hosting a weekly craft group, and like you, find that I'm happy facilitating art projects and helping others reach their goals.
Glad you've joined our team!
Best wishes in 2015!
Louise

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm curious...what type of crafts do YOU like to do? What are your specialties? For me, the beauty of the SparkPeople Teams is meeting and learning about people we'd never meet otherwise.

Wow, Patti! Reaching Maintenance is something to really be proud of! Congratulations!

And welcome to our team! Your interests in the many areas of Fiber Arts sounds quite extensive. I did some crewel embroidery years ago, but that's about as far as my talents reach. My mother was great at crochet work, and how I wish I had learned more from her! I am in awe of those of you who can spin yarn, and someday I would love to learn tatting. It's so good that you are helping those at the Senior Center to revive that almost-lost art.

Hi, My name is Patti and I have so many craft interests that this may be the Team for me. My interests are mostly fiber arts--crochet, knitting, Irish crochet, tatting, spinning yarn with both spindle and wheel, weaving, and a little sewing. I am the Team Leader for two Teams here--Olympia WA Spark! for where I live, and Spin Me a Yarn for my craft interests. I also facilitate several groups at the Senior Center close to my home--Needlework, Tatting, and Inspire Your Creativity.

I have reached Maintenance (38 pounds) over the last year, and am so grateful to SparkPeople for helping me. Last year this time, I had double hip replacement, so the fact that I can even walk still amazes me. Without the surgery, I wouldn't have.

So, that about sums me up. I love this new healthy lifestyle and am passionate about my crafts as well. I'm looking for friends like me.

Hi, my name is Nicole Haley and I just joined this team today. I am fairly new to SparkPeople and I am working on a healthier lifestyle. I live just outside of Crawfordsville, Indiana and love to make fabric crafted items. I mostly make primitive and country home decor items and sell them at Christmas craft shows and in a booth at Klassey Klutter flea market in Lafayette, Indiana. I am a wife, full-time college student, part-time sales and marketing merchandiser, and crafter. Please visit my Spark Page to see some of my Valentine's Day crafts and to make a new Spark Friend.

Hi There! Just joined SparkPeople this week and am really excited. Want to lose 22 pounds but also want to chat with others doing the same thing, eating healthy, exercising and crafting. I love to knit, paint and other generic crafts. I would like to try my hand at jewelry making soon. I think when you get into your crafts you don't snack. Who can snack with knitting needles in your hands.

I can't just stick with one craft, either. I always see too many projects I want to try.

Hi, I'm new to this team and fairly new to SP (4/22/12). Although I would still love to Scrapbook (haven't done it in awhile), my new crafting outlet is jewelry making. Who needs to go to the mall to find that perfect accessory for that outfit when I can make it. Imagine when I lose my desired weight and my clothes and my jewelry look GREAT! emoticon

Good things come to those who SKATE!
