Above and Beyond the Legal
- Something Creative exists to simplify joy. We believe that Moms are magic, and we work to empower you to say yes!
- We believe in inclusivity and that families exist in all colors, cultures, shapes and sizes. We are dedicated to supporting parents everywhere and in sharing our stories. We recognize that our perspective represents just a small portion of the world. If you would like to share experiences, traditions, projects or activities that are meaningful to your family, please email us at email@example.com. If you feel that we are not doing a good job of providing an inclusive environment, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- A quick note about the word “Mom.” You will see that throughout this site we use the word Mom. We understand that primary caregivers include Dads, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, other close relatives, foster parents, and so many other loving, and caring adults. It is not our intention to exclude you with the use of the word “Mom”. If you have concerns, please feel free to contact us.
- Our goal is to support parents and caregivers everywhere in creating joy for your kids. We reserve the right to remove comments or other communications that create a negative, unsupportive or unsafe environment. Removal of this material will be at the sole discretion of the our team. If you have concerns about anything that you see on our site, please email us at email@example.com.
- All Something Creative projects & activities require adult supervision. Use good judgment when setting up activities. Recommended ages are a suggestion, and parents are responsible for determining appropriate projects, activities, supplies, etc. for your children.
- We use affiliate links throughout our posts and may earn a commission if you click the links. This adds no extra cost to you (we are trying to save everywhere we can too)! And we want you to know that we recommend products that we think will help you, regardless of any partnerships.
