 The Reasoning...

I can't believe this blog started out as a little place for me to keep track of my favorite projects! It has grown so much and I truly love it, as well as all of my faithful and wonderful readers.  It also means that it takes hours upon hours upon even more hours to create projects, take pictures, edit said pictures, write posts, and look for ideas to share with my readers.  I'm a busy mom to five small children who come first, and to justify any time spent away from them (or rather the time I should be sleeping, lol), and to compensate for that time spent, I do accept several forms of paid advertising and sponsorships. (You can read more about them in my "Advertise" tab.) I will only select advertisers that I feel are a good match for my blog, and those products that I myself either use, believe in, or would like to try for myself. I also love to support other moms with small businesses, etsy shops, etc.  by helping to advertise their product.


Here’s the Deal

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me (Kierste Wade) with occasional Guest Bloggers.
This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, free products, or other forms of compensation.

 This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may sometimes influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content at the bottom of the post.

I may receive compensation for recommendations made in reference to the products or services on this website. This compensation may be in the form of money, services or complimentary products and could exist without any action from a website visitor. Should you purchase a product or service that was recommended by this website, it is understood that some form of compensation might be made to me. For example, if you click on an affiliate link at this website and then make a purchase of the recommended product or service, I may receive compensation.

There are times when I'm asked to review a specific product or for a particular business. In these instances I am compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I receive compensation for some posts or advertisements, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are always 100% 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.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
