This blog is a personal blog written, curated, and edited by me, Kathy Cano-Murillo. This blog occasionally accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.  This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.  The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Disclaimer:  All the content on this site is for adults, unless otherwise noted. My goal is to present safe, easy ideas, but I am not responsible for craftastrophes, injuries, damages or losses. Please craft at your own risk, practice common sense, be safe, use tools properly and always read the manufacturer directions. Thanks! Craft on!

About sponsored posts: If you see the tag “sponsored post” on an article, that means I was compensated with either product or payment. I use the money I earn from sponsored posts to pay for my daughter’s college tuition so she/we can have as few student loans as possible! Know that by reading or clicking on a sponsored post link, you are helping a young woman earn her college degree so she can go out into the world and make it a better place with education, inspiration and creativity! I only work with companies and campaigns if they fit with what I want to share with all of you. NOTE: If you DO NOT see the “sponsored post” tag, that means the article is an editorial review/feature.

Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting.

Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.
