This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, free products, and other forms of compensation.

I do accept and keep free products, services, or other forms of compensation to support this blog.  However, I believe in honesty and will always be truthful with my opinions.  I will never promote products that I don’t like and or encourage you to use a service that I have not personally tried and had a good experience with.

In essence, I don’t write fake reviews and will never lie to my readers!

This site uses affiliate links.

About affiliate links:  When I refer to an affiliate link I am informing you of my relationship with that particular product or service.  If you choose to buy a product or service via my affiliate link, I will receive a small commission.  Of course, this is at no extra cost to you😉  The use of affiliate links is simply my way to keep this blog up and running so we can keep bringing you more awesome DIY tips and inspiration!

Current Affiliates:

Please note that I do not use affiliate links to make a quick buck.  The products and services I recommend are ones that I use personally and believe to be beneficial.  Again, I would never tell my readers to try I product that I didn’t trust or use myself.

Also, I will never hide an affiliate link.  When a post or page contains an affiliate link it will be labeled as such at the beginning of the post.  If a link is not stated as being an affiliate link, then it’s not.

Sponsored Posts:  A sponsored post is a post where I am paid or compensated to write about a topic or review a product.  If I ever receive a free product or payment for providing a sponsored post, that post will be clearly labeled as “sponsored“.
