I love when you share my projects, and recipes! But please be respectful, and adhere by the following:
Do not copy and paste my posts anywhere, rather you should link to them so others can follow the link, and view for themselves.
Do not sell my patterns, or posts!
You may NOT translate my patterns or posts into another language, and share elsewhere. You MAY contact me if you wish to translate a pattern or post, and I will host it here on the EyeLoveKnots blog.
You may use one photo with link back when sharing my post/photos.
Some of my photos are not intended to be shared outside of the blog, and that is why I have disabled the pinning option within them. These are mostly photos of my family, or the process of working up a project. Please be respectful, and do not share these photos without permission from me.
I will stress, that sharing the process (or graph in some cases), on sites such as Facebook or Pinterest, allows makers to see everything they need to work up the project, WITHOUT returning to my site to do so. I earn income based on the number of views to my blog, so I need the views. I would love to continue to share free patterns and tutorials with you here on the EyeLoveKnots blog.
Feel free to sell items made from my patterns and tutorials. Designer credit, and a link back is very much appreciated, but not required.
If you would like to share any pattern or tutorial with friends or family, please provide them the link to which they can access it themselves, rather than simply printing them off a copy. Again, this goes back to the views.
I would love to see your work! Feel free to:
- Share on the EyeLoveKnots Facebook page,
- Join, and Share in the EyeLoveKnots Crochet & DIY Community Facebook group
- Join, and Share in the Pretty Nails & Fun Fashion with EyeLoveKnots Facebook group
- Send me an email – EyeLoveKnots [at] gmail [dot] com.
