I'm American, of Italian descent, and I have to say that growing up in Southern California and volunteering at the Museum of Latin American Art, I'd just like to say that Latin American art rocks my socks off! Rivera, Botero, it just doesn't get better. It reminds me of the art I'd see in my grandfather's home, stuff from our old country. The bright colors, the curvy yet angular styles, it's just wonderful. And, don't tell my family, I like latino art better. Mexican crafting culture, with rich inlaid woods, frescos, fabric weaving, Mexico knows how to get things done. You should be proud of your culture, it's a beautiful one. Dios te bendiga!

Don't you hate it when people fill up their signature with random junk you could care less about reading but when you see how long it is you figure it has to be important so you keep reading but it's not worth your time and you just wasted a whole minute reading absolutely nothing at all? I do.

Hi Mirchita! I swear I'm not a stalker  Grin I'm from Mexico, I live in Estado de México but I have a full time job in DF, at one of the most important museums of the city. On Saturdays I work at a beauty salon. I wish I have more time for crafting. By the way, I love the pic you post, so colorful!

I am not from Mexico (but I am from California!)  I love the little collage you put up there!  Me encantan los colores!  I am taking spanish class but I feel overwhelmed and in over my head (I am just beginning the second year).  I really want to learn though, (Tengo muchas ganas de aprender!) and think that if I could talk about crafts in espanol it would go a long way toward helping me.  I am always checking craftster when I shold be studying - I can't help myself.  Is there a spanish language crafting forum anywhere that I could sign up for, something similar to craftster?
