Comment Policy

Be kind and be genuine. Please respect one another, regardless of who, where, or what level our various skills are at. This is not the place for criticisms or negativity. And whatever your beliefs, please keep politics out of it.  We are in this together!

Disclosure Policy

The purpose of inthebagkidscrafts.com is to share fun and do-able kids’ crafts for the real world so that you can engage with your children in a meaningful way. By sharing how I’ve made things and keeping the supply list to a finite number of items, I hope to inspire and teach you to do it yourself, too!

I have a number of costs associated with running a blog, particularly as it grows — server space, technical tools, and more. To offset this, I use affiliate links in posts when they are available.

The Federal Trade Commission {FTC} revised their guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials in order to protect the public from any intentionally errant or misleading advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. Since the JenniferMaker blog is a source of income and may occasionally incorporate endorsements or testimonials, I felt it was important to disclose the following to you, my readers:

  • The content of the “In the Bag Kids’ Crafts” blog is a source of income for me and therefore may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses at my sole discretion.
  • I will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have, in fact, used and that I feel will be beneficial to our readers. I feel very strongly about this. I always try before I recommend.
  • Products provided by my advertising partners for my review are given to me free of charge with no cost to myself. This does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.
  • You can trust me. I will always give my genuine opinion about a product or service whether or not I am partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so.
  • My number one priority is accuracy and fairness to my readers, and I would never compromise the truth just to make a buck. Ever. It’s not worth it to me and it’s not cool to you.
  • Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of my blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.

Blogging is a business, but it is so much more.  My first priority will always be my readers.  I want this to be a place of integrity where you know that you can trust what you are reading.  I love all of my readers and hope that you will only feel encouraged and inspired as you become a part of this community of makers.
