Online Christmas Shopping List!

With the Economy now and the government trying to shut down the craft business altogether i want to make a list of great stocking stuffers for everyone to support handmade because that money will stay in our country and that is happiness all around:D

The following is regarding the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). This Act, which will go into effect on February 10th, 2009, puts forth much more stringent safety measures for products intended for children under the age of 12.

Under the very important auspices of child safety, the Act may have grave unintended consequences: fewer choices for families who are looking for handcrafted alternatives. Many Etsy artists and craftspeople have expressed fears that they won't be able stay in business due to the burdensome cost of testing and certification pursuant to the proposed legislation.

That is a darling list! I've actually been coveting Dadaya's hats, but they're too expensive for me!
