Affiliate links are one of the ways I'm compensated at Hey There, Crafty.
I love creating and sharing all of these tutorials, tips and posts with you, but they do take hours of preparation. It takes many things to create a blog, including my time and money for web hosting, design, security, etc. In order to keep these things free for you, I may be compensated for products I review, affiliate links (Like Amazon Associates), sponsorships and paid advertising. With that said, I only refer you to products that I trust and are a good fit for my blog and your time. Any compensation I get is for my time.
Not all links are affiliate links. Some links I post because it is a product or service I believe in and want to share with you.
