Next in the agenda is to refocus on scrapbooking. Not only my personal back log, but business-wise too. I know I've posted here previously about the new CPSIA act coming into affect next month (see http://www.change.org/ideas/view/save_handmade_toys_from_the_cpsia). In a nutshell it will make it illegal for me to sell any handmade products intended for use by children under the age of 12, unless I participate in rigorous and expensive testing on each type of product. This is truly a shame. It's putting SO many wonderful artisans out of business...even local boutiques here in Salt Lake City!
So, look for more scrapbooking classes, products & inspiration - coming soon, here AND in my Etsy shop.

Lot's of changes for the coming year. I think my resolution will be to slow down & enjoy life. Last year was so busy with teaching classes and creating product for boutiques that I didn't take time to do what I quit working to do: Spend more time with the kids! That's my New Years resolution. They're only young for such a short time and I want to savor every moment!
What's YOUR resolution for 2009???
