Our first stop was Tangerine. Proprietor Gina Gabriell, greeted us with tea and pastries. Always a hit with wannabe artists. She has a lovely little shop in Dublin, which I think doubles as part of her studio. You can find her original art all over. In addition are all sorts of gift items, and supplies for the mixed media artist. I purchased one of her hand made gypsy fortune tellers, you remember those from your school days, I'm sure. I also bought a cute little vintage wooden toy that she picked up on a recent trip to Paris. Check out her blog for info about her trip.
Chel and Gina
In addition to fabulous tasty treats, we made some little eye candy treats as well. Each of us made one of these little treat purses, and she gave each of us a "kit" to go.
I really enjoyed visiting with Gina in her special space, and working on these little treat purses. A tip I shared:When you use your hot glue gun, and you have all those annoying glue stringies...well....use your heat tool and blow a little hot air around your work, and the little stringies just disappear.
