Last night was a momentous day for the United States as we saw our first African American president elected. We saw people around the world celebrating this victory and we saw others that hoped that this new president would strength some of our weak presidential ties with other countries. This got me to think international and where the papercrafting hobbiest are around the world and what techniques are used in thier countries.
I was watching a recent episode on Fiskars T.V. that featured Juliana Mansour from Brazil. It was interesting to learn that in Brazil buttons and sewing was are used in the majority of layouts. Also where we rely on tape runners here in the United States, they use glue sticks mostly.
So it brings to question, how is scrapbooking and stampin different in other countries. Do scrapbooking companies make products only specific to a particular country? Are there companies abroad that produce products that we don't know about here? Is there an international papercrafting hobby site?
I am one who believes that one cannot have enough friend especailly in the hobby that I love. I would love to know your opinions and thoughts on scrapbooking in other countries. Having a friend to bounce these ideas off from another country on regular basis would be even better.
I would love all of your thoughts out there on the international scrapbooking and stampin industry.
