Save Handcrafters from the CPSIA
As some of you may be aware, our government has put into motion more legislation to protect us from ourselves. Or maybe protect us from Chinese lead in toys. In any event, this legislation as it is currently written, will put small handcraft businesses, like mine, out of business. Please read the Forbes article and make your opinion known. None of us wants our children harmed, but don't we all want the freedom to choose handcrafted gifts (which are not harmful)? If you haven't done so, visit Etsy and take a gander at the amazing creations offered there for babies and children. It would be a terrible thing if we lost the ability to purchase handcrafted goods from artisans.
