I'm not sure how many people are aware of the new law that goes into effect on February 10, 2009. It's the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act, which will require anyone/company that produces any items for children to spend tens of thousands of dollars for third party testing to prove their product has no toxic chemicals. Please click on the cute little bear to the left on my blog to help save handmade. I appreciate laws that want to keep children safe, I have two of my own; but this law will wipe out small business owners or crafters who make anything that could be for children; the testing is just too expensive.
