When it rains....

So my wonderful husband hurt his back. He has to go in for surgery soon. Right now he can't even stand for more than a few minutes. He's in a lot of pain and obviously can't work.

Now it seems that I'm going to be put out of business because of a new law that goes into effect in Feb. If you haven't heard about it it's called the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), it requires that all products produced for children under 12 have third party lead testing.

So I either pay some expensive tests, which I have to pay for each item I produce since they are individually unique, or I can get fined.

I'm just one of hundreds that this law will put out of business.

If you've ever bought a homemade toy or children's item of clothing please write your local congressperson or senator!
