A big thank you...

... to everyone who came out to The Pink Parlour Festival yesterday! And to my awesome husband who assisted me at the booth. I could not have done the event without his help! Seriously!

You all made it worth wild! I definitely want to do this again next year that is for sure. Great venue, fun crowd, and tons and tons of hairstyles, outfits and decor to drool over. I just can't get enough pin up and rockabilly into my life. Next year, I will have to devote a portion of my time to check out the car show that was in the middle of the race track while the ponies were going! And to see more of the performers on the main stage (i.e. the Atomic Cherry Bombs, etc.)

Some photos I was able to snap on my phone (I completely was in the moment and didn't take but 4 with my regular camera, and I fail for not taking more).

My incredible hubby and adorable self.

The Sey Studios table (we were #22, my favorite number)

Blankets with giraffe print! They weren't exactly what I wanted, but cute never the less!

Baby nessie felt creation I bought for belly monster. <3

Little girl toddler rockabilly skirts that I really wanted to get. But I shall wait.

Look at what you missed!

There were a ton of vendors selling fascinators but nothing like these cute hats! <3

I bought Baby Nessie from them. <3 Hand stitched!

The booth across the way from us who had the sweetest people there! Definitely made some friends. <3

Cheesecake fun!

Finished a new illustration last night. Prints are up for sale on etsy, however I will be selling them at The Pink Parlour Festival this Sunday. Plus, you don't have to pay for shipping if you go get it there, and you get to see one heck of alot of awesome artists, crafters, performers and race horses! Of course you can't forget the awesome crowd that comes to this event (pin up, rockabilly, etc.) Seriously, don't miss out on going. It's a rain or shine event (though it's looking like a shine day, w00t w00t)! I hope to see all your beautiful faces.

My little water baby

Monday, my husband and I found out we are having a baby girl!

So all my mer-girls I have been drawing will not be wasted! <3 Thought this would be a fun way to announce it.

She is due in August. Until then, she's my little water baby.
