Yet another update to the CPSIA

At this point, I have no clue how to feel about this Act that has been put in place! Frustrated, Angry, Dissapointed...should I go on or is that good? ;).

I have high hopes that things will get cleared up. It's just the waiting, and the unknown that is so hard!

Currently, I'm working on contacting the companies that produce the products I use to make my crocheted items to find out if THEY do any type of testing of their products for lead. I've contacted all of the companies and now I wait...and wait...hopefully not too long!

I'm still creating new crochet items and wait until you see what I've just created! Little baby gladiator sandels. They are SO cute! I'll get them on my Etsy page as soon as I can. In the meantime, feel free to stop by and see what's been added w/in the last day or two...

Encouraging News!!!!!

As a follow-up to my last post...

I've received some very encouraging news from the owner of Styledbaby Boutique! Apperantly, the law was not written as it was supposed to have been. It wasn't meant to be so broad. It's being revised to be more specific and remove some of the things like cotton and yarn and so on...

I'm very happy about this news! I would have adjusted the things I create to fit in with what Styledbaby Boutique carries. I absolutely adore this shop and would do whatever I could to help keep it in business. BUT as of right now, I won't need to do this :). For now, things are staying the same at the boutique and hopefully soon the law will be rewritten and there won't be such stirct rules regarding testing ANYTHING made for children under 12 years old, for lead.
