Once upon a time I had a regular job where I was compensated for 40 hours of work per week. But then I started this blog, and to my surprise people started reading it! So I kept doing projects. And more projects. Projects cost money! Eventually I decided that in order to keep sharing projects and stop calling myself unemployed, I needed to find a way to-at the very least-offset the cost of DIYing everything and anything I set my eyes on. I joined an advertising network and started accepting sponsors. As my blog grows, I get more opportunities to earn compensation, either as dollars or products and sometimes both. I try to keep sponsored content relevant, and you can be sure that I will always give you my honest opinion when talking about a brand or product. Please understand that this blog has become my livelihood, and I depend on these opportunities to continue to share with you the projects here at Lovely Crafty Home.
