I am a participant in affiliate programs run by Amazon and Knit Picks. This means that when I post products from either of these companies on my blog and someone makes a purchase through that link, I earn a referral fee. In other words, I receive a small commission, with no additional cost to the buyer. This only applies to Amazon and Knit Picks products (and not other links from places like Etsy that I sometimes post as well).
That being said, I only post links to products that I have personally bought, used, and can highly recommend unless otherwise stated.
When a purchase is made through a link that I posted on the blog, it goes through the site I referred the buyer to (Amazon, Etsy, etc.) I do not collect any data on the buyer. Please read the disclosure policies on any website that you buy from. When someone buys an item from my Shop, the transaction is processed through PayPal. I am not given any credit card information – only the details I need to contact the buyer and complete the order. This includes their name, email address, and shipping address.
I do recommend Amazon Prime – especially Amazon Mom for any fellow parents out there. I love this service because I order from Amazon often, and it provides faster shipping at lower rates, as well as subscription services, and significant price breaks on many items.
Knit Picks is where I buy almost all of my yarn and fiber arts supplies these days. I used to just walk into a craft store and buy whatever was cheapest, but the convenience of online buying, the luxurious feel of the high-quality fibers, plus the low prices from Knit Picks have converted me. They also have a huge selection of patterns. If you knit or crochet, you’ll love what they have to offer!
