Just came across a blog that is sharing Photos of Handmade Children products that are in endangered by the CPSIA. I think its a good idea to show just how many people are going to be affected by this law. Heres the url You can share your own photos and have a link to your site.

Endangered Whimsy

Hope this helps some of you.

so does this mean also that you can no longer use swarvoski crystals on any items for children under 12?

This is crazy...I wanted to buy some ribbons, but I guess I have to wait....Why people are making everthing harder for us when the economy is s**k a** . I can't believe this. How can we get the expensive test if we only sell $3-$6 bows. Doesn't make sense at all. Ughhh.... Now, I don;t want CHANGE!!!! Who wants this kinda change. I do care and love children, try to make the safest bows and now, one law, change everything. I hava nothing wlse to say. Just wait and see.

I started my shop in Aug. of this year and have been so busy making hair clips ever since. I have not been on here in a long time and walk into this???!!!

No matter how anyone wants to look at it, it does apply to our clips because those of us who have small girls know they pull out their hair clips and they go staight to their mouth! My husband and I have always been very careful about the items we buy for our daughters because we all want to make sure they are safe to put on them so play with.

I just doesn't seem fair and I agree that the places we buy our supples from should be the ones liable for these fines NOT US!! I really hope this law doesn't end up affecting us but if it does why wouldn't we be able to just mark our items as "intended for ages 12 and up"? I will definetly look into "lead-free". And I think if the prices for supples do go up, we will have no choice but to stop selling. I wouldn't want to be liable for a little baby being hurt by any of the items I make.....REGARDLES SAFETY COMES FIRST!

Don't know if any of you read ZRecommends, but he had a great post up today called "5 Steps You Can Take to Save Natural/Handmade Companies from the CPSC and the CPSIA". Besides linking a couple petitions (that we should ALL sign), he also gives phone numbers for the appropriate government officials and some ideas about getting the word out. It's a pretty extensive article that I've already linked to on my blogs...

My thought exactly. If I was making my own ribbon to sell, I can see how I would be effected and held responsible, but it should be the manufacturer who is held responsible. Yes, we can ask questions before we buy, but this is nuts.

It sounds like education....everyone who makes the laws are obviously not teachers nor ever been in a classroom
