All the posts are original. Any opinions expressed are solely mine and are not influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships.  I do not accept paid reviews.

This blog is supported by banner, button and affiliate links so that the site continues to grow and remain free.

 I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.  I am also a Craftsy affiliate. Each affiliate link brings in a small commission on any purchase made through them.

I was or am a Design Ambassador or on the Blogging Design Teams of several companies such as Art Beads, Prima Beads, Goody Beads, Ecuadorian Hands, Endless Leather and so on.  I also accept review samples from these companies which are then used for designs in showcase giveaway posts and occasionally the writing of free tutorials. Completed pieces are sometimes sold as my Life Collection on Etsy where 100% of the net proceeds go to cancer research or to an elephant charity to help stop poaching of these magnificient creatures.

I only accept products for review if they are potentially useful for readers.

I believe books are a tremendous source of knowledge and inspiration. I do accept books for review - I can't write about a book unless I can see it!

I use Google Analytics and Stat Counter to monitor general visitor information purely for my own statistical analysis. The data guides me in writing the kind of posts YOU want to see.
