Upfront and transparent

While most of my blog posts get no compensation, feel free to send me lots and lots of money!

In other words, I am grateful to work in an industry I love. As a designer, crafter and instructor, companies sometimes give or sell at a discount products for me to work with. Since I only use and blog about what I like, this in no way controls my content. However the government says I have to tell you that I might accept cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation, such as free products.

Even if the government didn’t tell me to do so, I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.When I receive compensation, I still give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

The owner(s) of this blog would like to disclose the following relationships: Michael’s Craft Stores (instructor), Robin’s Nest (design team), Whisker Graphics (design team) and Walnut Hollow, Gina’s Designs and Beacon Adhesives.

That’s it. That’s my big disclaimer. It’s all out in the open now.

Paper Calliope and Reese's for life

Paper Calliope & Reese’s mmmm

Wait! I forgot!

I will gladly accept any free Reese’s that anyone sends me. (I really, really like Reese’s).
