Paisley Grace Makery

I am a big fan of DIY projects. I rarely find crafts kits worth paying for when I could easily get the materials and do it all myself. Paisley Grace Makery is an exception to that rule! PGM offers great take and make kits that give you everything you need for a no-fail craft. All you have to do is pick the design, size and colors and they package it up and ship it to your doorstep. You can even get 10% off your first order when you use my referral link. If you are anywhere near Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, I recommend making the trip to the studio for extra fun and hands-on instruction.

Young Living Essential Oils

Anytime you see me using or talking about essential oils in a project or recipe, I am talking specifically about Young Living Essential Oils. They are the only brand of essential oils I use. You can sign up for a Young Living Membership by purchasing one of the Premium Starter Kits. While I do earn a small commission for each enrollment, the reason I promote Young Living has most to do with the fact that I believe they are the best quality essential oils on the market.


I've been very happy with SiteGround. The setup is simple and the rates for hosting are some of the best I've found. Prices start at $9.95/month and include a free SSL. Use my affiliate link and you'll make me very happy plus get 60% off hosting. That's $3.95/month for their "StartUp" service.

Affiliate Links

I only work with companies and services I feel I can trust. I extend these same standards when I decide to refer family, friends and readers to any brand through an affiliate link or coupon code. I do not believe in promoting any product or service I wouldn't use myself.

In addition to earning compensation, these links often allow me to extend discounts and pass along savings to you. These are my favorite kind of links because everybody wins!

If you use an affiliate link or coupon code, I may receive compensation in the form of free products, services or commission. Regardless of whether I stand to earn compensation through the use of these links, I will never recommend a product or service I don't believe in.
