Who in the balloon world would you ideally like to work with?
This sort of comes up under the set question number 27

If you could improve one aspect of your work next year what would it be?
The ability to just create new designs on the fly.  Last night I had a go at a Peter Rabbit which I was really pleased with for a first go.  Megan instantly knew who it was which is a good start!

21, What are your balloon goals for the future?

Get better, become more confident in creating new designs and being able to say 'yes I can make that'  more of the time.


22, If you could start all over again, would you change anything?

Only that I wish I had started years ago.


23, How would you like the future of balloon modelling to develop?

I don't really know.  I'm just about getting to grips with the present!


24, Who's the most famous person you have made a balloon creation for?

I have made a couple of things for people from our local radio station.  I guess I can claim I have made things for Graham at the Care n Share days... he's been on the telly you know!  :lol:


25, How do you keep the enthusiasm going & what still excites you about our great world of latex

I still consider myself as a newbie twister so there is so much to still learn.  I just have to look at what gets posted on balloon chat or what I see at Jams to inspire me to grow.

Busy day tomorrow, so here is the final few now:

26, What inspires or is your thought process in coming up with a new design

When I started, I used other peoples designs.  The more I make of them, the more I then find that I tweak them into my own style.  I have recently found that I am more confident in having a go at designing my own models from scratch.  I am working on expanding this further and would like to eventually be able to 'give back'.


27, Who would you like to work with dead or alive?

I had the pleasure of meeting Antonio and Robbie Furman at the Birmingham Care n Share this year.  Graham and Dan Catt have helped both my skills and confidence.  I couldn't name any particular 'big name' twister here as I would like to work with any of them!


28, What makes you laugh?

Strangely this is the question that I have found hardest to answer and I can't pick any one thing to put here.  In the 'real world' I like various comedy.  My daughter often makes me laugh.  Last night I ended up randomly watching a compilation of funny clips of cats on YouTube which was good!
