Saturday Links ::: January 17

I'm guessing that most have (by now) heard about the law that is going into effect requiring manufacturers of children's merchandise to undergo extensive lead testing. A good thing, right? Well, if you are a stay @ home mama that likes to make hair bows and burp rags and sell them on Etsy, then not so much.

Click on the little bear to find out more about this law and what you can do, or you can read a great summarization post over at Rocks in My Dryer.

And now, a few other links... :)
  • Shimelle is offering a free scrapbooking class on her blog! Head over here for the details and a introductory pdf you can download. (This is the mind behind the Journal Your Christmas project that I do so if you like that type of project, check this one out. You can't beat the price!) :)
  • Have I shared the link to this fun calendar that you can download and print at home? Cute project, even if we are already a few weeks into January.
  • These heart cards make me happy. I'm going to try and figure out a little Valentine's goodie for my girls to give their friends using the the little girl card.
  • I made these peanut butter energy bars this week .... oh my. Yum.
  • Don't forget to enter my giveaway for the new Ted Dekker/Erin Healy book. It ends on Sunday night and I'll announce the winner on Monday.

Happy Saturday. :)

  1. No, I had NOT heard about lead testing law. So I promptly sat down and prepared my letters which I will mail out today!
