Disclosures (aka the boring legal stuff)

Disclosure Policy

MamaBeeMakes is a new endeavor, but I have long been an avid blog reader. I noticed that some of my favorite blogs started writing sponsored posts and accepting free items for review and I lost some trust and respect for them. In some cases, their sites started to feel like an unending product shill.  I want you to know you can trust the opinions and reviews in MamaBeeMakes….always…every time….without a doubt.  For goodness sake, I am going to learn how to use power tools, we need all the trust we can get around here!

All views expressed are my own. I only recommend products and companies that I do or would purchase for myself and in general I do not write posts that are sponsored or in response to a free product.  On the rare occasions that might occur, it will be clearly labeled as a sponsored post or donated product and rest assured, I will be my typical filter-free honest self:-).

The FTC established guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials.  Today this blog has 2 readers (hi mom, hi Dr. B) but hopefully MamaBeeMakes will grow into a thriving community of intrepid DIYers who are rolling up their sleeves and unleashing their creativity.  It would be amazing if this meant that  MamaBeeMakes made some actual income for our family. In this spirit of hope and ambition, we are including affiliate links and incorporating advertisements. Please know that MamaBeeMakes will always reflect my genuine opinion. I reserve the right to choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have used or otherwise think would benefit my readers.

MamaBeeMakes is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.  My love of Amazon is well documented throughout our building and our family:-)  The doorman knows my regularly occurring shipments and my boys are very well acquainted with the Amazon logo and packing materials.   Amazon makes my life as a busy mom much easier, especially in the City.

As is well documented on this blog, power tools scare me, and for good reason–they are loud, sharp, and are designed to pierce, cut, rip, and bludgeon building materials into place. How in the world would my soft, warm body stand a chance against that?
