Advertisers, Sponsors and Affiliate Links

A limited amount of advertisements may be added to this website and provide compensation for placement. The ads are monitored for appropriateness for inclusion based on the content of this website.

Some of my posts may be sponsored by a brand partner and include some form of compensation. With this, considerable discretion is used when choosing to partner with a brand and I will only partner with brands I would use in my own home. Posts that are sponsored will be clearly identified.

Posts on this blog may contain affiliate links. These are included so that you can easily locate items (sometimes similar items) that are used in my home or on projects. Posts that include affiliate links will be clearly identified. Please note that if you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at absolutely no cost to you.

One of the affiliates is Amazon. The following is Amazon’s statement.

“Amazon: We participate in Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”

Earnings from advertisements, sponsored posts, and affiliate links help to offset the cost of running this website. If you choose to buy or use a product or service based on a link from this site, I sincerely thank you for your support. But please note that should you experience issues with any item or service, you must take action with that company directly.
