Reviews & Disclosure

These policies are valid from 18 November 2013

I began this blog to share my sewing tips and tutorials, my favorite recipes, book reviews, frugal tips, and more.  It has been around a long time with some popular tutorials for the crafty blogosphere. Many have been featured several times at Craft Gossip as well as Craftgawker and in the magazine CraftStylish.

I strive to provide quality content that is both informative and entertaining. Reader response has been very encouraging. I direct traffic to my site utilizing several social media outlets:  Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram.  Each post is shared on multiple sites for maximum views. Our readers are loyal and supportive of our site.  Our demographics are typically women ages 21-30, 31-45, as well as mothers of young children, mothers of homeschoolers, foodies,  and those who enjoy sewing and crafting. Our site statistics continue to improve on a daily basis.


Our family loves trying new products, especially (but not limited to) items relating to children’s products (We have 3 children who range in age from 3 to 14), sewing, crafting, baking/cooking, as well as beauty products.  We also review books — both children and adult.  If your product is something that would interest readers of this demographic please contact me: stephanickety@yahoo.com

All reviews are honest and in the best interest of my readers. If for some reason your product receives a negative review, I will contact you prior to posting my review and give you the discretion of deciding if you would like the review to be posted. Please allow at least 2-4 weeks for me to review your product before my review is posted.


I love to offer giveaways on my blog and try to do so at least once a month. Giveaways generate more business for you as I will be posting your giveaway here on my blog, as well as on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Extra entries will be allowed by having readers link up to your social medias (such as Facebook), sharing via Twitter, and posting a link to the giveaway on their own blog.  All giveaways are open to US residents only, unless otherwise specified. While giveaways can be paired with reviews, this is not required. If you are interested in doing a giveaway, please email stephanickety@yahoo.com
