Happy New Year

New year, new start. What am I going to do this year in new products? Hummmm!!!

Well I did do up a few scented wax animals, but these are no brainers as I bought the stuffed animals at the dollar store and the votive candles to melt and put on the bears. They turned out quite cute and I will take them to the swap meet and see if they sell. I usually don't do swap meets but decided I need to get rid of some of my older stock and this just might be the way to do it. I have a local indoor swap meet that is free for the month of January so why not try it.

I am not sure how much or if any bears and dolls I will make this year because of a new law taking effect in February that says all items for children 12 and under needs to be tested before it can be sold. I can't afford this and I don't know of any crafter who could. This just might stop me and my website. I hope everyone will write to their congressman and all the news agencies and help all of us crafters and artists who live in the USA and sell products for children.

Eva, this is a great site. Yours dolls are lovely. I think that something like this is exactly what I am looking for.
