I'm pretty sleepy tonight, after drawing all weekend, so I mainly read and rested after work today. When I was sorting through my drawing pads left out from the weekend, I noticed that they were Made in USA. Maybe reams and reams of paper are too heavy to ship over seas.
However, speaking of weight, I noticed that at Target, the 5, 8, and 10 pound dumbbells for acrobatic power- walkers were Made in China. If you think about how much all those dumbbells weigh together, to ship to EVERY Target in America, that is a huge amount of weight, and I imagine very expensive to ship. I can't believe it's cheaper to outsource and ship weights, then to make them here.
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*.
