We are so glad you're here! Blogging is our creative outlet, and we spend hours upon hours creating, documenting, and publishing ideas, tips, and tutorials. But it gets expensive. To off-set our costs (and keep our husbands happy), this blog is for-profit, however small that profit may be.
In addition to the paid sponsors you see on our side-bars and the giveaways we promote, we also participate in affiliate marketing programs where we receive a commission when products are purchased through links on this blog.
Here is a list of affiliate programs we currently belong to:
Clever Girls Collective
We make it a policy to only promote and participate in affiliate marketing programs for products we actually like and would recommend to our family and friends. So if you like something we've linked to, please purchase it through that link, and keep the tutorials coming! If we receive any products or monetary benefit from a company, we will always disclose that information in the resulting post. If you would like information about our sponsorship opportunties, please visit our advertising page, or e-mail us at email@example.com.
It's not our fault if you mess up your project!
We hope you'll exercise your inner creativity and try any or all of our featured projects. However, please be careful! Don't run with scissors, work in a well-ventilated area when using stinky glue, and watch your fingers near the sewing machine. And be advised, Little Birdie Secrets cannot be held liable for any accidents, injuries, or really ugly projects that may result from following our tips or tutorials.
It might sound selfish, but please give us credit for our photos and ideas.
We are happy to have you link to our posts and photos on your blog. However, we ask that you please credit our work and link back to our site. We don't make much money for all our hard work, so the glory is all we have. All photos are copyright Little Birdie Secrets.
