Hello - and welcome to Pastiche, the Family Friendly E-Magazine that's been online since 1998. In Internet-speak, we were founded BB (before blogs). Lee Hansen is the publisher and editor of Pastiche Family Portal and the artist/owner of Clip Art and Crafts and Lee Hansen Design.

The log files record unique IP addresses and provide general server traffic information about movement to and from the pages located on our web site, downloads, and time spent on each page.

We do not collect information without your consent or awareness, and at all times the information we may collect is voluntary - you fill out a form.
We use aggregate traffic information solely for improving the site content and for general market analysis. We gather only voluntary feedback and limited personal information from our site visitors who initiate contact with us through our contact forms.
We do not gather personal information without your knowledge. We run ads managed by third parties who may set cookies when you browse the site; our affiliate ads may set cookies to record your click from our site to theirs so that we receive credit for your purchases from them if you become a customer.

We partner as affiliate publishers with reputable merchants and service providers: ShareASale, Google Adsense and Zazzle. We use these third-party companies to display products and ads when you visit our website.

We never request personal information about or from site visitors. We publish special child-oriented content for parents, teachers and caregivers to share with children, including clip art, coloring pages, games, crafts, printables and puzzles. We publish a special section on this web site that offers kids carefully screened links and projects (Kids Stuff). Some of the content in the Kids Stuff section we create ourselves, some is developed by others or is hosted on other web sites. We visit all sites linked from the Kids Stuff page personally before adding content or links to the page.
About Kids Stuff, our page just for youngsters
Kids Stuff presents content that's intended for use by kids. Before we add a link, we visit the site to screen it and be sure it's safe for children.
Kids Stuff on this site contains links and content for children to enjoy independently, online and off-line.
All of the content is reviewed and cleared before we add it or a link to it on this web site - however we have no control over its creation or development, so we cannot guarantee it will remain that way. If notified or made aware that content is not appropriate from any link on our site, we will remove it immediately. We, too, are parents and grandparents - and we fully believe in keeping kids safe online!
The limited sponsor messages that appear within the pages for children have been carefully screened. Again, we link some Kids Stuff items to pages off our site, but only to pages that contain artwork or projects created by and for kids, or to sites we have visited personally to check out.
We do not knowingly post links to sites that do not conform to Safe Surf, ICRA and Family-Friendly content policies. Our links page is hand-edited and hand-screened. We do not accept links from sites that do not conform to the same family-friendly policies as this site, or from sites that do not offer content for families or related to parenting.
Finally, we may periodically offer contests or giveaways that request an e-mail address or completion of a registration form as a requirement to enter. If so, the contest will clearly indicate the prizes and rules, and any form that a child completes will require a parent's or other caregiver's e-mail address and approval. It will require that an adult certify that the child is of legal age to participate or has permission to provide his or her name and email information.
We will NEVER knowingly use any e-mail address for marketing or any other purpose without permission, nor will we knowingly share personal data for any purpose.
Pastiche Family Portal is a member site of the Bluestone Network : LeeHansen.com, Clip Art n Crafts, Image Factory Graphics and Bluestone Studios. We design and offer for sale personalized, custom printed gifts, stationery, apparel and home decor at Zazzle:
I created my first family-oriented web site in 1996, then started expanding the family and parenting content sections in 2001 when I was "downsized" by the marketing firm where I was employed as webmaster and digital media manager.
The main web site bears my name (www.leehansen.com) and connects to all my web sites and many of my blogs. It's where you will find all my newest clip art, coloring pages for adults, teens and kids, plus oodles of nifty printables and paper crafts.

I selected the name Pastiche ( loosely translated as "a collection of incongruous parts, or a hodgepodge, a collage ") because this website is an eclectic curated assortment of family-friendly features gathered together from many different licensed or personal resources.
Those resources include my own artwork, original crafts, family recipes and articles, plus parenting tips, business stories and family articles contributed by other authors, parents and kids from around the world.
Pastiche sponsors the Code Amber Alert program and the national security level code system banner network as a service to our visitors.
Some features on this web site are contributed by writers who are independent content producers - professional counselors, educators, aurthors or subject matter experts. Many are parents, homeschoolers, educators, and grandparents who enjoy writing family-friendly articles or designing arts and crafts for kids and adults.
I feel fortunate to be associated with so many talented and generous contributors who have like-minded ideas to my own about the Internet, creative learning, and about sharing their work with others.
To send us e-mail, you can visit our Facebook pages. I read all my e-mail personally, and I respond appropriately as needed.
We require sites that partner with us to have family-friendly child-safe content that relates directly to our site. Not all suggestions for links or article submissions will be appropriate; not all proposals will be accepted.
Just a Tip: If you receive spam or UCE (unsolicited commercial e-mail) and the sender won't respect your request to stop, forward the offending e-mail message to UCE@ftc.gov with all its message headers displayed.
