I have financial relationships with many of the merchants mentioned on this site. By merchant, I mean companies, brands, etc. that sell something. You should know that the majority of my posts contain affiliate links, which means I earn a commission if you click through and buy from them. This costs you nothing extra.
EXAMPLE: If I recommend an awesome pack of my new fave markers and include a link to buy it online, then I earn a commission from that “merchant” if you click through my affiliate link and buy. It’s that simple. I only recommend products or experiences that I truly believe will bring you value.
That said, you should know that I will always disclose when something has been sponsored. Key words are “in collaboration with”, “____ invited me to”, etc. etc. If you ever have questions about this though, again, I can be reached via email!

Information Collection, Use, & Sharing
I am the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
If you contact me from this site to fulfill an order or request a service, you most likely will provide me with certain information such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product or service that you’re requesting. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly. When you have provided your affirmative consent, such as subscribing to my mailing list, you may revoke that subscription at any time.
I will use your information if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and/or as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services.
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery and print on demand companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or giveaways. Participation in these surveys or giveaways is completely voluntary, and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
