221  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: City Guides for crafters .... What about Latinamerica? on: August 23, 2008 05:44:29 PM
Hi! I know I'm late to the party. Specially because I had been looking around (A LOT) before I finally registered. So first things first... I'm Cynthia and, even though right now I'm some sort of nomad, I'm from Argentina.

At some point I saw this post and have been thinking about the matter ever since. This is clearly a one-official-language community at the moment. This means that, in order to follow the present rules, all of us Spanish/German/Chinese/etc. speakers have to make an effort to adapt. The truth is moderators can't take responsibility for what isn't expressed in English and I believe they are an important factor in keeping such a healthy, friendly atmosphere on Craftster. This would explain why the regional boards' purpose isn't to be able to speak in whichever is the local language.

So... My proposal is the following: How about creating a Spanish-English dictionary? Simply creating a topic, where we can all add crafting terms we learn, ask about those things we can't figure out and maybe even include a list of useful links to websites in Spanish. I think this would be useful even for those who can't speak the language and happen to come across some pattern/tutorial in Spanish.

Regardless of this, I'd love to see a Latin American board, since there really is so much going on there in terms of both tourism and handcrafts. And in this board we could have our dictionary!

OK, I got carried away and this turned out to be really long. If anybody needs me to translate this into Spanish, I'd be more than happy to do it.

// OK, me entusiasmé y esto resultó ser muy largo. Si alguien necesita que lo traduzca al español, me encantaría hacerlo.

He is just SO cute! All the doggy girls in the neighborhood are going to go crazy when they see him in his new outfit.

Oh if I could make my own jeans... All my problems would solved. For the time being, I only shorten them. But since I have to sew it by hand, I guess that's good enough.

Yours look great.  Wink

And patience with the 10 posts. I'm in the process of writing those right now too.

I love your dress! Such a fantastic fabric. I like how you left the plain black part, as if to disguise the craziness of the fabric from un-understanding eyes at first glance. I hope you have some left to make more cute little things to show off to us.

And I love your car. (If you give us an extra picture of it, it's so we can praise that too, right?)

Such a pretty design.  Smiley
Someday I will attempt to follow your steps.

Also, you couldn't have picked a prettier yarn. By the way, what did you use?

Red Heart Super Saver- I believe the color is Frosty Green Flecks.  It's from Wal-Mart.  Not a designer yarn...

Hm... I'm always skeptical about 100% acrylic yarn for things I'm gonna wear. It's like my skin rejects it. It's so pretty, though! OK, so soon you'll see me at Micheal's squishing skeins with an undecided face... as usual.

Shapeless? Definitely not. Even though it's not quite my style, I think it looks absolutely adorable and would be more than happy to make one for one of my friends. Also, you couldn't have picked a prettier yarn. By the way, what did you use?

So cute. Smiley I love all of your amigurumi. And even though I just registered, and this is the very first thing I write on Craftster, I've been "lurking" (like you guys like to say here) for quite a while now and have always thought your little creatures are precious.
