Found paper garlands.

Just saw these found paper stitched garlands over at decor8 and had to investigate further. AWESOME.

And then I found these festive holiday-themed paper garlands over at 3GIRLSandagoat:

And THEN I found this little gem of a paper garland over at Bookity, constructed from pages of Shakespearian plays!!!!

Can you freakin’ STAND it?!?!? I want to drape my apartment in these things. And maybe my mini Christmas tree, too. Oh, and PS) there are also Shakespearian tree ornaments:

Wordshop Wednesday (on Tuesday): Jamaica Makes…

Have you guys all seen Jamaica? I’m not talking about the island, though I hear that’s lovely, too. No no, I’m talking about Ms. Jamaica of the wonderfully awesome blog Jamaica Makes (crafts when she should be making dinner)! She and her blog make me smile for all sorts of reasons. For instance, yesterday she posted the following:

If that thank-you card doesn’t qualify as “rad,” I don’t know what does. Actually, wait, yes I do: all the old-school paper and fabric goodies in Jamaica’s Etsy shop and on her blog qualify as majorly rad. Here, check them out (be prepared to swoon):

Multi-Colored Baker’s Twine

I have tons of crafty ephemera-related projects flitting happily (and impatiently) around my head, awaiting the completion of my d@mn dissertation so that I can finally focus on my artsy side without feeling guilty. Or at least, without feeling more than 90% guilty.

Anyway, a lot of those imminent projects involve packaging that involves baker’s twine. I went to one of my favorite local stationer/pen shops today but, much to my dismay, no twine. Not sure what the deal is there. But it prompted an Etsy search. Which prompted a cornucopia of delicious eye feasting…

So, here you go…
