CPSIA and the Etsy Artist

Beginning this week, until this legislation comes into effect, I will post 3 Etsy Minis on my blog per week in support of the artists who will be affected.
If you are an Etsy artist who creates beautiful items for children, and would like your Etsy mini featured here, please convo me on Etsy
Etsy minis should be 3x1 in the Gallery format.
I encourage readers who do not have child-focused shops to visit these Etsy shops and show some love.
Also, please read my previous post about the CPSIA legislation, and use the contact information to have your voice heard.
I will post links to online petitions in future posts.
We cannot allow this legislation to destroy home based businesses. With this kind of regulation, all parents will be forced to buy expensive name brand clothing that do not express individuality and pricey name brand toys that have been made in sweatshops because those are the only companies who will be able to afford to survive.
