New Year...New Everything

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I have blogged. With the new year comes new everything as the title says. With new regulations starting next month Poisoned Creations is forced to stop selling baby items. The government passed a law that all items for children under the age of 12 has to be tested (mainly for lead). Unfortunately for the DIY world this means lots of people will be closing up shop. With testing starting in the hundreds people can no longer afford to run as a small business. It's very sad because I know myself as well as others would never use materials unsafe for children. Since as of late we have had a lot of items imported from China contaminated with lead. It's sad to know that American's are being punished for this as well even though it's coming from outside the country. With that being said this is pushing me to do what I actually started sewing to begin with....clothes. I've sewn tons of dresses, skirts and tops for myself and daughter and that's what I started first with. There has always been lot's of competition in that area but now more then ever I should jump in. I've also done men's button up bowling type shirts and have had a great response with them. Some have even had a sneak peek if you were at Pistons and Paint, Urban Street Bazaar and Deck the Halls. My line is still geared towards the rockabilly and rock scene of course ;)

Keep an eye out...modeling pictures are being done this weekend.

As for the immediate future I'm looking forward to doing Texas Thaw, Lonestar Round Up, Funky Finds, Hotrod and Heels and a very cool runway show called The Pin Show. Now this is of course if I am accepted to these shows so keep your fingers crossed :)

I hope this year to be the biggest yet for me!!

Oh well... I hate that stupid law... and I hope that if I need a blankie for any friend of mine who'd happen to have a baby, I could ask you for custom made blankies & bibs? ;)
