Going round the twist!!
« on: March 30, 2009, 01:25:33 PM »
I used to hate balloons - I was scared of them popping and would never consider adding balloon modelling to my face painting business, so I never thought after my first taste of latex almost a year ago I would be twistng my way round the North West  :D

It was my very good friend Alison who first showed me my first balloon dog and sword and then it was home to you tube, dvds, books etc with my first pack of 260s before becoming addicted. Oh and to work on my face, that used to distort as much as the balloons.

I started off my business as a facepainter and found that adding the balloons was a real selling point but now I get regular work just for balloon jobs. Of course, that was an excuse to have to buy my apron, busking bag, every type of balloon going etc . . .

Of course, putting money back into the business means that I've still not earned enough money to buy Alison that very expensive bottle of champagne that she deserves (and requested  ;) )but as the business builds and builds, hopefully one day I will.

My 9 year old son has also become quite addicted too, so I'm building my little empire for the future.

Thanks to all on this forum for sharing so much too - it has been a great resource.

Hey Lisa, it took me long enough, but I have just got round to reading your post!
Bless. No-one will know me by my sunday name on here.
Remember, when you can afford it, a good biodynamic vintage champagne would be a good choice! pressure like!
