I try and check my gmail spam box once a week, you know -- just in case.
Lo and behold, I had 8 legit emails in there, I hadn't had any for MONTHS. Anyway, you might want to check your spam box for you gmail users out there.
Also, I hae a friend who opened an etsy shop, she makes lead-free blocks, and they look better then the ones I bought at Toys R Us (and most likely have lead in them). Have you guys been to etsy? I love to peruse the shops, but I thought I'd give the link in case someone was interested.
