Affiliate Programs Details

I do use affiliated links on this blog. Affiliated links just means that if you link through and buy products or join programs on the website linked to then I get a small commission. They use cookies to help track the link throughs. But it doesn’t cost you any more and it really helps me in the running of this blog.

As a full-time working artist, crafter and blogger I write about a whole range of subjects and I try hard to pick affiliations that I use myself and that are relevant to you my reader and fellow artist, crafter and blogger.

I think it enriches all our lives, I know it certainly helps me to get recommendations from people who use the products. It saves me a lot of time and money getting recommendations so I hope it helps you too.
