My Etsy Shop Has Reached Over 300 Hearts!!

My Etsy shop has reached OVER 300 hearts in just 8 weeks! :) Yeah! I am so excited! :)

What does "hearts" Mean??? When you find an item or shop on Etsy that you love, you can bookmark it by adding it to your Favorites. In Etsy-lingo, this is also called hearting an item or shop.

Trying To Find "Safe" Toys This Holiday Season

http://www.healthytoys.org/index.phpCheck out this site before buying your children their holiday gifts! I found it very resourceful! I wish that we did not have to worry about toys that are on the store shelves being a "hazard" to our children. Is there really any way of knowing that ALL of our toys are safe and do not contain harmful chemicals?
A great alternative is buying items that are handmade!! :) There are also lots and lots of shops online that make wooden toys or organic toys that your children will love!
Also... http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/category/toy.html is a great site to check from time to time to make sure you do not have any of the items on the list.
