I have this reoccurring issue where every time I try to do my holiday shopping for friends and family, all I can seem to find are gifts that I would like to receive. I was searching the internet this week for some unconventional subscription services that might make good presents and came across Papirmass, a subscription model which delivers exclusive art prints by up-and-coming artists to its subscribers. I love how this business seeks to lift up its artists while simulataneously enriching the homes of its subsribers. If I didn’t already own more art than can fit on the walls of my apartment I would absolutely be enrolling myself in this service.

Papirmass also hosts a blog on its website where you can see more work from artists and read about new features to the subscription service. Below I’ve included some of my favorite pieces from Papirmass’ December featured artists, Matt Harrison Clough. You can read an interview with the artist here.

Sharing a slightly different kind of home tour today.. A cookie company in London has created what is arguably the most incredible gingerbread house of all time. The gingerbread architects as Biscuiteers Baking Company spent 500 hours creating  this 6ft-tall edible mansion, inspired by the the real-life Waddesdon Manor in the U.K. Watch the video below to see some of the work that went into this project, along with some really remarkable comparisons to the actual mansion.
