*SERIOUS ISSUE*

I just read the post from Tangled and True about

this brings tears to my eyes!
Here is a small portion from Tangled and True:

{This may sound like an exaggeration, but due to the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act, in just two short months all small toy manufacturers, independent artisans, and crafters will be shut down and out of business, period. This represents a huge portion of companies that are featured here on T+T.}

This act does not only impact toys, but ALL children's products like clothing --PLUM.TREE.STUDIO
I went to CoolMomPicks as advised and they have a list of ways YOU and I can do to help prevent this...
You can also check out the information posted on ETSY: HERE
I went to the Handmade Toy Alliance and I found my Congress person and my Senator and I took the time to write both of them a letter regarding this issue. If YOU are one of the many who have bought off of etsy and bought handmade items for your child or as gifts...you should be one of the MANY who writes to their Congress person or Senator or both as I did.

There is ONLY 55 DAYS LEFT TO WRITE YOUR LETTER...SO PLEASE DO SO!!
