Today I did market research for work at the mall. You know, looking for cool do-dads, or interesting ways to work with fabric. As I moseyed around, it occurred to me that I haven't gone normal-person shopping in well over a year. You know, just trying on whatever I want without checking every label first. It's sort of weird, and made me feel out of touch. I didn't today either though, because 1) I was working, and 2) there's no point because I wouldn't buy it anyways. Regardless, I am disappointed to report that I didn't see anything Made in USA. However, I wasn't looking too closely at the clothing and I didn't go into many apparel stores, so maybe there was American made and I didn't see it. My drawing pad at work is Made in USA, though, so there's a silver lining!
Well, I'm sleepy, so I'm going to read "Wild", about a girl my age hiking the Pacific Crest Trail alone. I wish I were that adventurous. The Made in USA project is my version of an adventure, I guess. But by comparison, that sounds pretty tame...
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
