Yummy411: Artscape 2008

I went to Baltimore's Artscape Festival this past weekend. Good times!

While there were other art exhibits and vendors, there was one vendor that respected makeup as an art, CoverGirl! CoverGirl Beauty Experts were giving makeovers with some of the new products and they were giving them away! Amaze-mint Lip gloss... There was even a CoverGirl fashion show. I was to be a CoverGirl Beauty Expert =( I was trying to inquire within, but the head staff person was off busy some where....

Good times with the fam.

Car exhibit, House of Mirrors, my Dad even got in on the fun... we stayed until dark! Look at the ferris wheel in the night sky!

Ok, I love those that can sew and craft garments... I will be able to sew too one day. I ran across this vendor who made funky hats using ethnic and batik fabrics. I'm a lover of hats, but it's one thing I have to compromise with locs. However, I found this huge hat that fit over my locs =) This is the hat I bought with some blue and green patterns in it. I would have loved to get one with some purple. His vendor name was Samsara Boutique, but I can't find anything relevant online. I signed up to be on the email list, so we'll see what comes of that.

Have you ever been to the Artscape Festival? See ya next year!

Damn, it's so boring here. We'd never have anything nice like Artscape, sadly.

Awwww... BabyYum looks like he's going to grow up into a little heart-breaker.
