About Use of Graphics on This Site
It is always
a great pleasure to hear from visitors who have enjoyed my printables.
As you can see from the info posted on each page of this site,
these printables are intended for noncommercial use only and
are copyrighted. That means they belong to me, subject to the
conditions I impose. My intent is not to make money from these
graphics but to share and hopefully benefit others, especially
children around the world. You can print and use as many copies
as you need as long as they are not sold.
In the past,
I have granted limited commercial use to visitors who have written
me for permission. Most people using these commercially are small
home business owners who wish to incorporate my projects into
works for sale. I am usually most willing to help out with a
few conditions. Since I have recently been getting more inquiries
about commercial use of these graphics, I thought it was time
to put up some info on the conditions I impose.
Conditions for Commercial Use
must write to tell me how the graphics will be used so I can
decide if the use is permissable. Contact me through any of the
email links on each page of this site. You will see such a link
at the bottom of the navigation bar on the left.
- A permissable
use would be incorporation into a commercial project of your
own creation such as a dollhouse, roombox, etc.
- A NON-permissable
use would be printing the graphics and selling them as printed
sheets for others to construct. These graphics take time to create
and develop so naturally I would not want others to easily profit
from my own hard work when I offer these freely for non commercial
use on the net.
If permission is granted for commercial use, I ask that commercial
users make a good conscience donation to a children's charity
of their own choosing in an amount equal to what my works represent
to the sale. I don't require that you tell me to what charity
or how much you've donated and you need not contribute anything
until you've made a sale. I'm trusting to a pure honor system
based on what is in your heart.
If you need
a suggestion for a children's charity, among my personal favorites
are the Ronald McDonald Houses, many of which contain dollhouses
donated by miniature clubs. The McDonald houses are near and
very dear to my heart as a mother and as a registered nurse by
profession. These houses provide a safe and welcoming haven for
very ill children and their families in need. You can read more
about them and even make an online donation here:
McDonald Children's Charity
I hope you
can see that these terms and conditions are not imposed for my
personal profit but in the spirit of giving and sharing with
all who inhabit this small place we call home, especially children.
I truly believe our world is only made better when we each do
our part, however tiny, to reach out and touch others in the
spirit of goodness and love. To anyone tempted to steal and abuse
these mini graphics for their own personal gain, I can only assure
you there is no such place as a mini hell.
to all and happy crafting!
