a quick visit with Carrie

On my way to Monterey, I did a quick stop over to visit with art friend, Carrie, of Hip Chick Designs. We've been facebook friends and then met up in person at Artfest.

Her store is just wonderful! It's located in Benicia, CA. Her shoppe (along with other artists) is located down by the water in what use to be naval facility buildings. She took me on a quick tour to see who the other tenants were and for our tour, we both wore tutus. (Carrie is known for putting friends and even strangers into tutus).

I bought a wonderful HUGE book from Carrie (she's wrapping it up in one of the pics). It's a bound book of the New York Times newspaper circa 1936. I can't wait to use it in collage.


just to let you know, Carrie, is teaching a couple of classes for Art is You in Benicia. One of her classes is how to make these fabulous wings! If I was going, I would definitely take this class, because I always need another pair of wings!
