The Legal Stuff


All images and writing on this blog are copyright Madeline McDermott andMaddieMadeThis, © 2017.  Unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material in the excess of three photos without express and written permission from this site’s author and/or owner is strictly prohibited.  Photos from this blog, regardless of number, must be clearly accredited to Maddie McDermott and, and be clearly linked to the original post with a caption.  Excerpts and links may be used without prior permission, provided that full and clear credit is given to Maddie McDermott and with appropriate and specific direction to the original content.

tl;dr — if you share more than three photos from my blog, you gotta talk to me first.  No matter how many you use, you need to give me credit in a caption.  Feel free to link to me and use excerpts of posts I’ve written without prior permission, but you still need to give me credit for my work and link back to my site.

ps – if you share a photo from my blog or something about me, I’d love to see!  Copyright disclaimers sound scary but I am not!  Comment on a page, send me a DM on Instagram, or shoot me an email: hello [at]

Affiliates and Sponsorships

Some links on this blog are affiliate links.  If you purchase items using those links, I get a small commission, at no cost to you.  This helps me keep this blog up and running, with consistent and useful content for you!  I’ll only link to items I love and would use myself from companies I trust.  Any time a post has affiliate links, I’ll be up-front about that.  You deserve honesty (and also the FCC requires it but hey!).

I am a member of the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, a an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites.

I also love to work with partner companies.  These could be fabric companies, pattern designers, craft stores, and more.  Again, I’ll always let you know when a post is part of a partnership, right up at the top of the post.  Rest assured that all partner posts are still my honest opinion — I’ll always tell you the truth!  I’ll also be sure to be clear about what exactly I got in return for the partnership.
