I also review things sometimes which I have paid for myself but are just things that I like that I think my readers may like too. Sometimes in addition to the item itself I also receive payment for the post in which case it will state in the post that it has been ‘sponsored’, ‘featured’, created ‘in collaboration with’ or ‘in partnership with’.

Sponsored Posts: All sponsored posts on Crafts on Sea are ones which I have been paid to feature on Crafts on Sea.
