I wanted to share with you some information on how my blog works. Please know that I only share what I love. I do earn a portion of the income from the sales linked from my page.
I participate in several affiliate programs. That means I receive a commission when products are purchased through links here at this blog. (At NO additional cost to you.) This allows me to bring you more videos! This is how I earn compensation via teaching on this blog and can share with you!) The affiliate programs I use include Dick Blick, Stencil Girl, Willowing, Donna Downey and Simon Says Stamp and Amazon.
I buy most of my own supplies. However, I do receive some free product.
The only time I am given product as a “payment” is if I am doing a guest post, designer spot or a blog hop (which would be mentioned in my post since I would be expected to use the product in these cases). If I mention a post is a guest post or blog hop, it can be assumed the product featured was given to me.
In the very rare occasion that a company sends me products and asks me to do a review, I will mention that. (This is very rare.)
Even though I have Invited Sponsors, I have not made a commitment to use their product. (The sponsorship payment gets them an ad space on my blog only. I invited them to do this because I believe in their products.
I never will share a product I do not like. What I use on my blog is what I truly like.
I never promote a product just because a company has asked me to – I promote what I love.
I do not work for any of the companies I talk about without telling you.
If you have questions or concerns, please email me.
Bottom line: I will never share or even review a product that I would not personally recommend or that I do not personally like. A big thanks for those who support me and allow me to continue free tutorials.
