not really much of a Monday for me, Lance is working Wednesday through Sunday, so it's kinda like a Saturday for me. That's really gonna screw me up!! See any good commercials last night??? I think my favorite was the one for Doritos. The one where the guys are throwing the snow-globe thing around. I'm a sucker for stuff breaking. On the commercial note....



Really exciting cause I saw a couple of the sets that I got to work on!! The part where they are in the raft in the cave was Lance's set, too!! But they are also going to be debuting the Trailer on Thursday night on NBC, so be sure to check it out!!!

FYI ---

so just in case you haven't heard yet, there has been a one year stay of enforcement for the lead testing for the CPSIA!!!!! Exciting cause now we can not get so worked up over it, but we also have to keep working to make sure it gets amended or we'll be right back here next year. Here's the official statement that I saw on the Etsy Forum posted by an official Etsy administrator....

"Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission voted unanimously
(2-0) to issue a one year stay of enforcement for certain testing and certification requirements for manufacturers and importers of regulated products, including products intended for children 12 years old and younger. These requirements are part of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), which added certification and testing requirements for all products subject to CPSC standards or bans.

Significant to makers of children’s products, the vote by the Commission provides limited relief from the testing and certification requirements which go into effect on February 10, 2009 for new total lead content limits (600 ppm), phthalates limits for certain products (1000 ppm), and mandatory toy standards, among other things. Manufacturers and importers – large and small – of children’s products will not need to test or certify to these new requirements, but will need to meet the lead and phthalates limits, mandatory toy standards and other requirements.
The decision by the Commission gives the staff more time to finalize four proposed rules which could relieve certain materials and products from lead testing and to issue more guidance on when testing is required and how it is to be conducted.
The stay will remain in effect until February 10, 2010, at which time a Commission vote will be taken to terminate the stay."
