Affiliate Revenue
I’m an affiliate with Amazon, Blurb, Craftsy, Land of Nod, Mod Cloth, Tea, Alex and Ani, and If you purchase an item through one of my affiliate links in a post or sidebar ad I will make a small commission from your purchase.

Sponsored Posts
I do occasionally accept sponsored posts from brands and companies. Although I am usually compensated for these posts, all opinions, project ideas, and text are my own. I clearly label when a post is sponsored.

I love to host giveaways for my readers, and although they can take up a fair amount of time, they’re worth showing my appreciation to all of you. There are two scenarios in which I host giveaways:

1. A company provides the giveaway items and pays to ship it to the winner, and I receive a similar item for review or compensation.

2. A company provides the giveaway items, ships them to the winner, and I am paid for hosting the giveaway.

I will always disclose whether I have been compensated or paid for a giveaway.

I am not paid for my review posts. Sometimes I review items that I have purchased myself, and sometimes I receive products courtesy of a company that I test out and review. My reviews are never pre-written by brands, and all opinions are 100% my own. Sometimes I am paid to host a giveaway along with my review, but any payment is not for the review itself.

In reality…
I don’t usually get paid for my posts and projects. When I do work with brands it is because I believe in them and think you’ll appreciate the products they make. I started this blog with a love for making and sharing with people, and I’ll always love connecting with you, the reader. Thank you for helping me make Maker Mama what it is, and I hope you continue to enjoy the posts to come!
