I just returned from a mini vacation in Santa Barbara for Memorial Day weekend. I traveled with a close friend and although we made a promise not to work while we were there, it turned out we almost spent our entire first night discussing only work related 'stuff.'
So I didn't shop while I was there... well not really. Every Sunday there is an Arts and Crafts show at the State Street pier. I strolled by and took note of a few local artisans. I also managed to pop into one gallery as we were literally hopping in the car to head back to Los Angeles. I am so glad I did because I found one artist whom I really loved, Erika Marie Carter. The first photo is from the gallery, the others I pulled from her website.
