To Treasure or Not to Treasure

The other day my Etsy amiga, Botanicalbird, sent me an email sobre un dilema: stay at home to hacer un treasury or go to the Post Office to deliver another sale... "to treasure or not to treasure" that was the question!

I wanted to share this funny story with you and also show you the beautiful pictures that she sent me.

Hi Lolo,
I wanted to share this funny story with some of my etsy friends! We have had unusually severe snow storms here in Portland, OR with several feet of snow piling up, therefore my husband and I had to walk 2 miles to the post office today so that I could ship some express mail. Got some good exercise out of the deal, but missed the treasury...damn!!
It was a tough call...ship the Express mail or stay home for the treasury??

PS. I would like to come visit you in sunny Florida!!

When I saw those pictures inmediatamente viaje a traves del tiempo and arrived to my wonderful, lovely and recordada ciudad called Punta Arenas, Chile (look it up, it is the southernmost inhabited place in the Americas!) I lived there for a long time before I moved to live in Santiago, Europa y USA. I still remember playing with the snow, walking or rather leaning 45 degrees against the howling wind of the South Seas and running through the paths among the pines.

I had such a good time and I hope to go back there algun dia and play again and again with my añorada nieve which is an unknown element here in Florida!

Thank you botanicalbird!

We are growing!!

This is amazing! Spanglish is growing a little bit more by the day and we can see a great team is in the making.

I invite you all to see the great work that our new members are producing and share your thoughts with all of us. We have received many letters telling us how we are fulfilling a need that we all know we have, the importance of communicating with others who want to share common interests, ideas and hopes.

These are difficult times, I need not remind anyone of that, and usually the arts and crafts are sometimes considered non-essentials, we beg to differ! To nurture our spirit and our sensibility through the work of our own hands is not only a sure way to fend off any negative thoughts that might be floating around but also turns our feelings into something truly positive that help us in more ways than one.

One of those is surely economical, because no matter how much we love what we do, we need to help balance our budget, pay for materials etc. And that is also the objective of this group. Pulling our strengths together to make ourselves more visible in a crowded world. And, yes, the final and most important thing is that, if we really put our love and care in our work, this love will spread around to others, and that is what it is all about.

Like Charles Dickens once wrote: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."

We, as artists can choose to bring out the best, the wisdom, the belief and the light. This hope should be beaded and knit, carved and woven in our work to make it even more beautiful!

Etsy Spanglish!

Why this name for a team???

The idea came one day when I (Lolos) received an email from an Etsy user named Bululustudio. 
She said something was going on in the Virtual Labs, so I went there. We did not know each other so much, but after chatting for a while we decided to go into a private chat and started a really fun and good connection as if we knew each other for a long time, and ever since that day we took on the responsibility to create a great new team called Etsy Spanglish.

The name came after many hours of thinking and laughing (lol!) about silly names till I just said: "Spanglish!", porqué no? Sounds good, fun, divertido and the best part es que puedes hablar en both languages or mix them up as we usually do whether we want it or not. And so the name was born.
Now, what else do we need to be a really great team? People just like YOU, con energía, ideas, good attitude, good communication and sentido del humor!  We think that if we have the commitment to work together we will be able to find the solution to many problems that seem hard to solve on our own.

Our main objective is to have an active, participatory group, and through monthly chats, contests and other promotional events, obtain a positive result and success for our members. We will focus on Latin immigrants, Latin-American descendants and Spanish-speaking Americans interested in our culture and willing to share ideas, projects achieve common goals for the benefit of all.

Having said that, we think the most important thing is to have FUN!! And truly learn from each other by sharing our experiences as immigrants or simply as travelers through different cultures and the misunderstandings, some funny, some embarrassing that we have all suffered when trying to make sense of some new words or new worlds!

We will conduct interviews with our members, not only to know each other better and have a good sense of our craft and passions, but also to make them known to the general audience of the "blogosphere" to promote our craft. 

We will also be publishing tips and tutorials about a variety of things of interest to our members, including different craft techniques, sources for materials, how-to articles on photography for example, which is a good part of our marketing image if you pardon the pun.

So, let's get together and have some fun! Sí se puede!
