In the spirit of full disclosure, I am currently working as a freelance designer in some capacity for the following companies:
The Rubber Cafe
Companies/Products I work with occasionally:
Spellbinders Paper Arts, LLC
Eco Green Crafts
Some companies provide monetary compensation and some provide products. While I'm compensated by these companies in some form, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products.
I will never recommend something that I don't personally use and enjoy.
If you have any questions about the products I use and/or my affiliation with these companies, please feel free to contact me at ciolabunch (.at.) gmail (dot) com.
