Disclosures:

Most post will contain one or more of the following types of disclosure. Know that this will not sway the opinion no matter what. (Even though they may want to!) This costs you nothing and helps pay for this blog’s overhead. Occasionally we will also do sponsored posts as we cannot afford to spend so much time on the blog (as much as we love it, and as much as we love food and crafting) without a little something extra. While they aren’t our favorite thing to do, we really cannot afford to keep this blog running without doing the occasional sponsored post. Something about being paid to write about a subject bothers us, but we will always be completely honest. We will NEVER accept payment to write something that we do not agree with and we will only accept sponsored posts that fit into our  philosophy.

We will post about events or products that we like and agree with. This does not always mean we are paid for promoting it (and we will specifically tell you on the post if we are), it usually just means that we like whatever it is the post is about.

Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
