A few folks have contacted me about my tutorials being translated. First off, thanks so much for bringing it to my attention and I actually appreciate it that my tutorials are translated in other languages. =D
I’m hesitant to endorse these as I can’t guarantee the accuracy. Being bilingual myself, I try to keep verbiage in any tutorials I publish simple and to the point so that automated translations (via google or altavista) won’t have too much trouble with the conversion or if translated, will be coherent enough for anyone who needs it in their language.
If you want to translate my tutorials (as long as it isn’t something I sell at Etsy or a pattern. That’s a huge no no.) that’s cool! You’re welcome to! Please link back to my website and include credit to me. ^_~
I also wanted to address certain requests that I get that probably won’t get answered and that is for folks asking to be “mentored.” I love teaching but given the hours I put into working (being self employed and all) I don’t have the time. I love to help and see other people improve but I just really can’t afford to. I’m glad the tutorials I publish help out a lot of folks to get started on either crochet or doll repainting but I’m afraid I can’t offer the sort of hand holding some folks seem to ask of me. Sorry about that! All I can offer you is that keep trying, experiment, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes!
