Thanks all for the welcome  :)

I think you're probably right Charles, I'm not much of an 'entertainer' so it may be best kept as a hobby. However, I recently made some balloons for some colleagues as a gift for passing their exams, this led to another colleague asking for something for her friend's hen night (some fabulously rude balloons which went down well  ;)  ) She now want to pay me to do a bride and groom for said friend and another colleague wants to pay for something for her daughter's 21st!

So I may be able to make back some of the cost of balloons after all with the odd commission  :D  

Any ideas for a 21st?

Hi all,

I thought I'd introduce myself and say a bit about my introduction to the wonderful world of twisting.

I bought a box of balloons with pump and instructions from a card shop for my son's 3rd birthday party but never opened it. Some time last year I was at an event where a balloon artist made my son a pirate sword. Well he absolutely loved it but it eventually did what all balloons do, it deflated :( He asked me to 'make it better' which of course I couldn't....then I remembered that kit I had bought. I looked at how the sword had been done and thought, 'I bet I could do that'. Well, after a few pops (rubbish balloons) I made a passable copy. My son was delighted and I was hooked. I played about for a bit with one balloon animals and one day had the bright idea of looking on you tube. That was about six months ago and I now have a huge box of balloons, pens, pumps etc and two bored 'not another balloon mam' children.

I've done a couple of parties for friends, have made 'presents' for some colleagues and am dithering about whether I could recoup some of the outlay on my balloon stock by putting myself 'out there' as a twister for hire, gulp. I've not got that confident yet. I'm definitely not able to stop twisting though and need to feed my habit somehow. I'm looking forward to sharing my obsession with you all :) I live in Bradford so plan to come to the super day in Leeds.  :D
