And of course we love to collect craft freebies ( free patterns & printables ) as well! 


What we don't do?

We DO NOT steal! We don't claim these brilliant craft ideas and product photos as our own creations! Do you remember those websites and image galleries around the internet which doesn't respect the craft idea's original authors (publish articles without proper source links)?  Mindy.hu never ever does this! We highly respect the original authors: Mindy always gives you proper back-links to the original author's sites, because these talented crafters needs to be famous! If you visit their websites and blogs please do not forget to thank them and click on the advertisements (because this will help them to continue their great work)!

Every listed craft idea in Mindy has: a short description, a photo presentation and 2 back links to the original author's site: one with automatic translation (if the original site is not in english) and a direct (untranslated) link.

If you click on an advertisement of an embedded video the money goes to the original YouTube authors! So please help them as much as you can (you can also thank them in their YouTube channel: we provide YouTube back-links as well!)


The translation:

Mindy collects creative craft and DIY tutorials from all around the world so sometimes the craft tutorial is originally not English. But don't worry: you will find an automatically translated version of them as well! We use Google translator's help to translate the foreign websites for you! Well a robot translator can't provide perfect translations (especially of special craft slang words), so sometimes it's not the best (sorry about that). Mindy always tries to collect photo documented tutorials so if the automatic translation doesn't work you can easily follow the images instead! 


How to use this site?

If you are looking for craft ideas about a special occasion (holiday) or hobby technique you can use our craft menu (little images/icons at the top of the page) to find our categorized craft idea collections. If you would like to find special craft ideas about one specific theme or motif use our search bar (at the top of the page). The search bar has autocomplete function: it will advice you a few words and craft ideas as you begin typing. Of course you don't need to choose from these tags and craft items: you can see the whole search result list by pressing enter or clicking on the magnifying glass icon. 

Move your mouse over the craft ideas to view a short description, and a difficulty review. If you click on a specific craft idea you will get to the inside view.

In the DIY tutorials and freebies inside view you will find lots of informations about the craft item such as it's category, tags,difficulty, and of course the proper source links to the tutorial of freebie!  (Or if its an embedded video tutorial you can watch the video in place, but of course we also provide source links to these items as well.)

Below the craft items in the inside view you will find 20 recommended craft ideas similar to the actual item, and 20 randomly picked actual/seasonal crafts. You can go through this small craft gallery with sliding or simply use the arrows or the dots to navigate.

Some of the links doesn't working anymore :( what can I do?

With using this form you can report every kinds of problems about that specific item: grammal errors,broken links, improper content, copyright problems etc.


The translation is horrible.. What can I do?

Unfortunately the automatic robot translation sometimes is hardly readable. We cannot do much about this problem, sorry!  Mindy always tries to collect photo documented tutorials so if the automatic translation doesn't work you can easily follow the images instead!  If you have any questions about a craft project  you can ask us anytime, we will answer your questions as fast as we can! 


The translation skipped the texts in an image, what can I do?

Unfortunately the automatic translation system cannot translate a text that's already merged into an image (if you cannot highlight the text above the image that means it's an image). But you can use Google's online dictionary/ translation service to translate words, just type in the desired word and chose your language: https://translate.google.com/?hl=en 


I need to translate a website without using Mindy. How can I do that?

To translate a word or a small portion of text you can use Google's online translator by copy and paste the text here: ( https://translate.google.com/?hl=en ). To translate a whole website on the fly you can use Google Chrome as a browser, because it has a built in translator!  Just click with the right mouse button on that website : and chose "translate to english".To download Chrome visit: https://www.google.com/intl/en_en/chrome/browser/index.html
