The beautiful artworks you see above are creations by Kristi Malakoff, a Canadian artist, who uses international money bills to create 3D polygons. Her patience and skill in cutting, folding, and pasting these bills from all parts of the world is quite admirable. The colours stand out and each shape is sharp and precise. It’s quite outstanding, isn’t it? I think they’d make beautiful centerpieces for side tables, or even an accent on a bookshelf.

I found this interesting. Patrícia Póvoa, a Portuguese graphic designer, has created a series of copyrighted famous hairs. It’s actually hilarious because I was able to depict which each were before reading the name on the poster.

The federal government has decided to stop production on these little guys since they cost a lot to produce and they really don’t carry very much value at all.
The cut back will save about $11 million a year.
You’re probably wondering about purchases that cost $1.04 or $5.12 (after tax). Well, you can still grab that coffee for a loonie, and that eyeliner for a 5-dollar bill and a dime.
And for all you penny hoarders, time to get those coins out of the jars and get crafting with these cute penny D.I.Ys:
