Literally. They really are works of art. These paper garlands are actually made of recycled prints from artist Belinda Kemp’s stockpile of ‘seconds’. If you love the artwork typically found in Belinda’s shop, Gretchen Mist, you are going to love these handmade paper garlands.
I keep thinking they would be great for a party: birthdays, holidays, bridal showers. Basically any excuse to display these babies, I’m all for!
By the way, how was everyone’s weekend?
I spent my time baking holiday cookies with my husband’s family. We made more than 400 cookies and other sweets in all to split between the four households. Seriously. I am not kidding. It was crazy. And awesome!
What did you do?

Looking forward to making some christmas cookies soon! Would love to see how your turned out, Brittni!
We got 12 inches of snow this weekend. Between playing in the snow, shoveling and staying warm I was able to do a little knitting and add a few finishing touches ot some handmade gifts. It’s beginning to look a lot like a winter wonderland up here in MN.margaret
