We use affiliate links and Google Adsense to maintain this blog so we can keep bringing you awesome DIY tips and dolly inspiration!
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😉
- SiteGround (web host provider).
- Tailwind (Manages Pinterest Boards).

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“.
