FTC likes bloggers to disclose when they get free stuff, when they get paid, basically to be honest. Well you can ask me anything (except my weight) and I’ll give you an honest answer so if you have questions don’t hesitate to ask. Because I’m all about being upfront & honest so you should know:
I use what I love. Recommend only what I believe in. Whether it’s paid for, free, or sponsored you should know I am only talking up the good stuff that I personally love, use, and suggest. I’m known for being blunt and honest – I am just upfront I learned a long time ago it is the happiest way to live. So…
I’ve been working in the craft industry for a long time. I’ve worked with a lot of people and for a lot of companies. Some of the brands you see featured have sent me product, others have never heard of me. Ladies & gents, I only use stuff I LIKE, and I don’t sell ad space or do random paid posts here on my blog. Anything you see here is because I wanted it here. I currently work with Brother International, but also do guest appearances on blogs/sites on occasion and feature products sent to me by all kinds of crafty companies.
I also receive books to consider for review from time to time from publishers, in fact I moonlight as a romance reviewer over at www.smexybooks.com. It’s where I let out all my romance loving dirty girl side. This here is my nice, clean, craft girl site. The thing is, I *ONLY* talk about books I love on this site. That’s true of me period.
Finally, I have affiliate links on my website that, should you use one and make a purchase, could result in my getting a small % of what you spent. Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson, Scrapbook.com, ModCloth, Craftsy and Blue Moon Scrapbooking are the currently active stores I have affiliation with. All stores I use, like, and recommend too. It’s how I support this site (hosting & give aways & such aren’t free, you know! Not to mention the time I put into this site…) and costs you nothing. It makes it possible for me to share more content and do more than ever here, so THANK YOU to those who use the links!
