What does Mom love just second to you? Wine, of course 😉!

Mother’s Day & Memorial Day

May events for you to enjoy with those you love


We Do Private Events Too

We know that time is precious and options are limitless, but let us help you keep the celebrations and time together special and unique. If you have joined us for an event before (as many of you have) you know how much we love what we do and strive to make each event memorable and special for all. This May, let us share Santa Barbara wine country as only Gypsy Studios can!

If you are looking for something unique to do in wine country with your friends or family on a date we don’t have an event listed; let us create an experience for you, unlike any other you’ve had in wine country. We’ll make all the arrangements at a local Santa Ynez Valley Vineyard–all you need to do is bring your creative spirit and a few friends.

Santa Ynez Valley is home to some of the most beautiful and world-renowned vineyards in California. Imagine you and friends, surrounded by the unparalleled beauty of the Santa Ynez Valley with a paintbrush in one hand and a glass of estate wine in the other. This is a perfect, stress-free environment that will both inspire your creative spirit and indulge the wine-lover in you. You’ll even walk away with a masterpiece of your own to commemorate the occasion.

All it took to clean up this beach was a fish named Goby

As some rumours swirl around the internet that there will be more plastic than fish by 2050, there are also some great stories about local recycling, like this one about Goby The Fish.

This one spoke to our hearts. Working on being in each moment, each day. It’s a constant challenge for me (Maria), in this overly stimulating and fast paced world but I will always keep trying.
