Alright, I know I just posted on the CPSIA hearing cancelled, but I read another blog entry by Rick Woldenberg and I am absolutely outraged. I'm not (yet) a mother, but if you are, and you blog (and you're running a small business) please read this and be enraged: Click here.

Yes. The hearings on CPSIA by the Subcommittee on Regulations and Healthcare of the House Committee on Small Business have cancelled their meetings. I'm not sure why, as I just heard this news and knew that it needed immediate reporting to other Etsians and handmade artisans. Please read the blog entry by Rick Woldenberg, the Chairmen of Learning Resources Inc., in Illinois.

Found an awesome tutorial from FutureGirl that shows you how to sew the lining for a crocheted purse/handbag and how to sew it ONTO the actual bag. I wish someone would have told me before I had to make a bazillion errors!
Click here for the tutorial on lining.

And ... you better do it :)
I'm still working on the Noah's Ark blanket for my friend. I've been a bit lazy in the crochet world, but I'm getting pumped back up. Soap making has gotten me a bit pre-occupied but I'm missing crochet like crazy. Today I bought a few skeins from Vanna White at Michaels for a throw I'm going to make for our home. The one my mama bought for us is coming apart after just a year of using it, despite it being $80 at Hobby Lobby, and so I'm determined to replace it with something homemade. The love will warm us up more than the other one, I figure :)
Got some beautiful rose scented soaps coming up today at Purities.etsy.com. They're gorgeous. My guest bathroom smells like a huge bouquet of fresh roses, and I'm sad to have to give the soaps away just because they smell so lush. Some of them feature dried rose petals (thanks hubby for the roses for V-day! You've given me petals for my soaps! LOL) and they just look... wonderful. I'm being humble, that's how wonderful they look - lol.
So go! Run! check them out!! :)
