This chunky notepad features a wonderful quote from Marian Wright Edelman: "Service is the rent we pay to be living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time." The background is a photograph of a butterfly that I took on a recent trip to England. I have left the butterfly in its original vivid color and faded the leaves in the background to a rich sepia tone.

Marian Wright Edelman is an African American woman who founded the Children's Defense Fund and has advocated nationally for children's issues.

Each notepad includes approximately 50 3" x 4" (7.5 cm x 10 cm) sheets of plain white surplus typing paper. The covers have been made from recycled mat board. Covers measure 4.25" x 3.25" (11 cm x 8 cm), and the color of the mat board may vary from what you see in the photo. Each notepad is bound with a spiral binding and tied shut with a ribbon. Most of the paper and all of mat board has been cut by hand, and all the punching has been done by hand, so please expect a few imperfections.

These notepads are great for portable journaling, jotting down notes, keeping grocery lists, or keeping track of your goals and dreams. Keep one on your desk!

Please see the last photo for similar notepads I created for teachers.
