In order to make sure that we are totally legit, let’s cover a few legal bases…
WHO + WHAT
Created in 2010, A Design Story is a blog that features interior design ideas, fashion finds, adventures of mommyhood, diy projects, style tips, lifestyle advice & chic inspiration in a journal style setting. Although I took a break from 2014-2020 to start our family, I am back and ready to share my passions with the world! I like to think of my blog as a virtual sketchbook; a place for me to share & showcase my designs, projects inspiration, our own home’s happenings, hopes, dreams thoughts, ideas for kiddos, fashion finds, diy and craft projects, recipes, thrifting hunts and so much more! A Design Story is so much more than a blog to me, it’s turned into a place that I love.

OUR CORNER OF THE INTERNET
I have worked hard and had 4 website design rehabs here at A Design Story. I finally have a site that I am totally smitten with. This website has been designed by both A Design Story and our website guru Clikwiz. The copying or mimicking of our design, content, graphics, logo or is prohibited.
FREEBIES + SCORES + GIVEAWAYS
A Design Story works and partners with brands from time to time on blog and social media endeavors. I am all about keeping it real, so when I am working with a brand for a specific reason, I will share it on the bottom of the blog post. I only work with brands and products we love and believe in. Occasionally I am asked to try out a new product to review, we will only take on the opportunities that fit the ADS brand. Again, I share those disclaimers at the bottom of those posts.
Gracious Giveaways happen from time to time on the blog. Brands contact me to give away items we select as a thank you to my beloved readers. I use Rafflecopter as the giveaway host to make it easy. I notify the winner(s) once the giveaway has ended via email. I usually give the winner(s) about 3 days to reply. If they do not reply, I ask Rafflecopter to reselect another winner. Any issue having to do with the prize will be taken up with the brand by me to alleviate stress to any of my readers. If you are a brand that’s interested in sponsoring a giveaway, click here.
SPONSORS + AFFILIATES
A Design Story Sponsors + Affiliates chill out on the sidebar of the blog under the “Sponsors”. The brands and companies that hang out here pay a monthly rate to be located on the sidebar. Taking on sponsors is how I am able to post so frequently and make this little blog a full time job. We receive a small commission from affiliate links on social media and the blog. For more information on how to become a sponsor, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
