OK, allow me to get just a little political for a moment here.
There are, obviously, a lot of things happening in our country now that shouldn’t be happening…and, in the grand scheme of things, I realize that this is — morally speaking, at least — somewhere down at the bottom of the priority list.
HOWEVER, as a fan of:
1) Cute, artsy homemade goods (including homemade goods for babies/kids)
2) Small businesses (not to mention an employee of one)
3) Small government
I was troubled to read about the CPSIA, which will go into effect very soon
You can this article about it here. If it is at all correct, then…
I want to be able to buy cute dollies from my friend Sarah and baby blankets from my friend Karin and all sorts of other cute things from other creative people I know, without the government stepping in with their too-big feet! And maybe someday I’d want to be able to sell my own little creations somewhere (well, if I learned to sew, that is…).
Oh yes, and I’d like to continue to be able to take my children to the library to get books!
Anyway, read the article and let me know if you see some glimmer of light in it that I am missing.
All I hear is a big foghorn (I think only my parents and siblings get that).
