Saturday Celebration!

Hooray! I'm taking a break from our regularly scheduled Seven to announce that the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a one year stay on the CPSIA for crafters.

By no means is the fight over, but this is a step in the right direction. A little win for handmade.

Basically, while we don't have to have items tested or provide certification, we still cannot sell items with lead content over the specified limit. So if you know your items don't contain lead, you're good to go for another year.

I can't possibly list all the details, but follow these links for more info:

Yay! Good news! Now that gives a year to write a law that makes sense.
