The FTC created new ‘rules’ about bloggers disclosing relationships with companies when they receive free goods or are paid. Although we are (and will always be) independent thinkers, we are happy to disclose any relationships we have for the purpose of clarity.
I am Sally Lynn MacDonald, the owner of Palettini, LLC, which runs enPlein.art. I am a certified and/or endorsed instructor for several brands of art materials. Generally this means that they have reviewed my current or past work and decided that I did ‘OK’ enough to allow me to represent their company and/or products in my workshops. I purchase directly from these manufacturers for my workshops.
I am not a sales rep for any of these companies, nor do I make a commission from the sale of their products to the stores/events at which I teach. From time to time these companies will send me product to work with, either to give my opinion or to make samples.
Affiliate links are marked as such. Affiliate marketing links through outlets such as Amazon or Shareasale exists on this site for products I recommend. If you want to know who I am currently working with, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I design products for my brand, Palettini, for which I am compensated.
Sometimes I will include a link to a product, which I think is pretty cool, and I will use an affiliate link to it on the page. Because one of you might click on it, and I can buy a Vitamin Water Zero at the gas station. Well maybe 1/20th of a Vitamin Water Zero – but a girl can dream!
But the bottom line is I only use what I love and only promote what I believe in, regardless of compensation. If you have questions at any time, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com.
We now resume our regularly scheduled blogging…
P.S. Notice there was no link for Vitamin Water Zero. Get where I’m coming from?
