Hi Idiot... I mean Hi Danny..  :D

Is there a lot of competition in your area with other balloon modellers?
I'm not sure ... but i know there are some balloon twisters around.... I don't regard them as competitor.. but they regards me as one.. cuz when i first started.. they wont give me information where to get the cheapest balloons.. u know.. I asked them.. then they'll asked me back.. then i told them.. then they would say.. oh yeah.. i got from the same supplier too.. DUH...

Can you get together with them and Jam? NO... .. maybe they hate me.. I found that there are so many balloon twisters from the balloon store where they put their namecards and flyers there... they are not so friendly thou... maybe i'm a woman.. or my race or something...

Where do you learn new models from? I learn new models mostly from DVDs bought from eBay or from my friends overseas.

Thx Danny...

Quote from: "Professor T Wist"
Princess
Who would you most like to make a balloon model for and why ? What would you make them ?
Mostly girls of 4 - 8 yrs old... cuz i love them ...almost everyday i make balloons for the kids around my working area cos i pass by playground and kindergarten on my way home....so i make them balloons... love to see kids' smile... it makes my day complete... I'm now obssessed with Hello Kitty and Strawberry Shortcake and also Elmo, so i do that most of the time.. cuz they'll get most attention..and they'll get the most WOWs... :D  :lol:

Hi Seb,

"busking" in my French dictionary is musicien / ambulant.  :roll:

But to explain further ... someone who performs on the street and asks for money from the public. They are not paid a fee, only paid by the generosity of the passing audience. In balloon modelling, in England anyway, you cannot have a fixed price for balloons as you are seen to be selling them, so you must have more of a show, or ask for donations.

voila!


Danny    :)

Hi Danny and thanks for the explanation, i see what it means now.
In fact it's what I like to do, street prestation, but I prefer with a contract.
I just bought on an american website 2 busking bags and now I know why they call it "busking bag"
Thanks again

Note for me: I have to buy a french/english dictionnary  ;)  because Google isn't my friend anymore  :D
