Disclosure & Private Policy
At SemiSweetDesigns.com, my goal is to share my designs, as well as helpful tips, tools and tutorials for those wanting to get their hands dirty with decorated cookies. I try my best to create quality content and I am encouraged to know many find the site helpful.
It’s amazing how much time and energy goes into this blog with all the baking, decorating, photo-taking, photo-editing, and post writing. As such, I feel it is permissible to be compensated. I accept advertising and participate in various affiliate programs which provide some income.
I truly promise to only promote products I personally use or can recommend without hesitation.
What is an affiliate link?
Sometimes I mention that a link is an affiliate link. This simply means sometimes I recommend a product or service and if you choose to purchase that product or service via my recommendation link, I will get a small referral commission. Of course, there is absolutely no extra cost to you, but it does help keep my decorating supplies stocked so I can keep bringing you great posts! I truly appreciate your support in this way. Thank you.
