As of December 1, 2009, new FTC guidelines went into effect requiring bloggers to disclose any time they are compensated for endorsing or reviewing products or services. I participate in various social media sites where I post projects containing components I have received for free, have been compensated for or received perks in return for posts on this blog. While this may be the case, I would never endorse or mislead you, my readers, by stating an opinion about any product that I did not wholeheartedly believe. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about any post or product I use in any of my projects. Some of the companies that I have accepted product from include but are not limited to: Red Rubber Designs and Crafty Secrets.
