Hi Everyone,

The notepads: they were purchased from a local office supply store, then taken to Fed X/Kinkos to cut in half. The charge for cutting them is very minimal (about $2.50 for making one slice as high a ream of paper). These notepads can be also purchased from the Dollar Stores or at target, too

love this - and that Chinese coin is one of my favorites. Not sure why I am drawn to it - but I have loved that coin for quiet some time.
