What specialty shapes ,if any, do you like using more than any others?

Have you given any thought on doing the CBA/QBN courses for Decor?

Whats the best Jam/convention experience you would share with us?


Thank you for joining in. I'm glad you are enjoying reading my mad ramblings. Great questions so here goes.

Shapes: at the moment I am loving using hearts. They have do many uses and now I am starting to get the hang of the side wall bubble their uses are growing.

CBA /QBN : I have given it lots of thought and when I find some time I am going to do it but as a bit of a perfectionist I want to be able to give it the time and attention it deserves. I am a teacher and at the moment we have a new Head teacher who has thrown the baby out with the bath water and we are using a whole new curriculum. This means lots of extra work!

Jam: This is a tricky one I have attended a few jams organised by Martin at the Swan these were great and I have met some great people. I remember the first one I went to. Someone had brought along a bag of 646s and the challenge was to make a bear head. If I remember it was because they were going o use them for their daughter's birthday party. Anyway the very first one I picked up I got the air spot on and made it. Boy did I supprise myself! I have tried to organise on myself but other than me, Martin and Neil we are finding it hard to getpeople in the same place atthesame time.

My job as ateacher means I can't take term time, week day, holidays, which is when most conventions and care and share days seem to be :(

Great question I have dreamed about this shop for a while now and I have a few cards that I am keeping close to my chest as if it does come to fruition they are very unique.

For those of you who remember Woolworths pick and mix section I'd love a wall full of different balloons, where clients could choose their own balloons to be made into sculptures or to take home. A wall of glass fronted fridges containing sculptures to buy off the shelf. A brew area with cakes and big couches(along the lines of Central Perk, a la Friends). Where I could hold jams and other events and activities, maybe a young twisters club during the holidays, where children can come and learn to twist. The window will have a theme that can be suggested by customers or can be used to showcase new up and coming artists.

I would like it to become a community focussed area. Where people come back to again and again to meet, learn, share. A place that helps people overcome their fear of balloons!

I'd have some of the ballon greats to open it, such as Ken Stillman, Buster Balloon and others.


What fun, unique ideas! I love it! I'd want to work with you! Can I be your first assistant? :) I'm loving your posts!

Absolutely! However, be warned, you'll just be feeding my addiction...which may or may not be a good thing. :)

Well here is the final day of Graham's questions!


23, How would you like the future of balloon modelling to develop?
I hope that our children stop seeing balloon models as being dogs, swords and flowers. There is so much more that can be done. I know that as helium becomes in shorter supply people are going to want exciting things for tables… We’re ready willing and able!!

24, Who's the most famous person you have made a balloon creation for?
I wish I could say someone but as yet nobody. 

25, How do you keep the enthusiasm going & what still excites you about our great world of latex ?
This site keeps me going I hope to be as good as some of the experienced twisters here. I love the way that new creations are coming out all the times. I see people’s designs and go ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’. Maybe one day I’ll come up with a design that others say the same thing about.

26, What inspires or is your thought process in coming up with a new design
I love the challenge of being asked for gift pieces when I have the time to sit and ponder. I find planning hard but get pictures and just start. The models just seem to construct themselves. If I practice then the actual piece never looks as good.

27, Who would you like to work with dead or alive?
Wow! Ok……. David Brenion has been a big inspiration recently. So my best jam ever would have to involve David Brenion, Don Caudwell, Ken Stillman , Twistina and Jonathan Fudge.

28, What makes you laugh?
When children are trying to guess what you are making and are so far of target.


Thank you for dropping by and joining in. I have loved answering Graham's questions and the ones that you have dropped in. I'd love to answer any others that you have so post away!!

Sara many thanks for taking the time and trouble to answer the questions last week, it was appreciated and nice to have this section back again after a long lay off.

Would any others like to volunteer to do the questions?
