CPSIA Business ICU-The Clever Kitty
I thought that it might be a good idea to feature some sellers of children’s products that are going to be directly affected by the new regulations that go into affect on February 10th, 2009. Shannon of The Clever Kitty has been making and selling fabulous children’s products on Etsy for several years. She started her crafty endeavors as a young child, and decided her creative mind couldn’t be ignored. She got her degree in Fiber Arts at Kansas City Art Institute. Not only does she make and sell her wonderful baby products, but she’s a part time florist as well, and I’m not surprised. Her use of color is one of her strengths, and her gorgeous baby booties and accessories reflect that love.
One of my favorite items she makes are her florajanes. These come in a large array of colors, and can be custom made for your baby. They are felted booties that have a tiny little felted flower attached at the buckle, and snap for easy on and off. Inspired by Chuck Taylor’s, Shannon’s felted high-top booties are too cute for words, and are perfect for that sporty baby in your life.
If the CPSIA stands as written, Shannon will be forced to stop selling these gorgeous, SAFE, baby products. Please help by contacting your congressmen and tell them you don’t support this law un-amended.
