save handmade

Hi friends,
I had no idea I would be gone for several days, and I've missed you! I've been celebrating more birthdays, baking, making, sewing, attending recitals, and being snowed in for the second time in one week! It's all beeen magical, even if I'm a bit out of breath. I blogged in my head a bit, but barely took pictures... a rarity for me. Now that I have a moment, you'll get a double-post day. This first one is of the utmost importance to me...

The Consumer Safety Improvement Act. This new legislation will have a devastating impact on independent toy makers, as well our options for buying sustainable and handmade toys for our children. To read more click here. If you've already been following this news, but haven't known what to do... or simply felt that you were too busy with the holidays, it only takes a moment to make a difference. Really! You can ensure that we all have the opportunity to continue to create and buy handmade.

How to Get Involved -- it only takes 5 minutes of your time!

I will be putting this button up in my sidebar and encourage you to spread the word. Thank you Sarah, of Threaded Basil, for encouraging me to share this with you. Blogs have the potential to be incredibly powerful tools for change! Let's make our voices heard. Pin It
