Happy Birthday not only from me but also KJ too

Balloon Chit Chat / 2nd Hand Floor Pump?
« on: March 02, 2017, 10:35:21 PM »
Hello all,

I have a friend who is interested in obtaining a 2nd hand floor pump, as she has recently hurt her hand or something, I did pay attention at the time she told me (but it was yesterday). Has anyone got one that they no longer need and would like to part with? I will pass on any potential persons onto her and she can then discuss with you the finer points.

Many thanks

Just recently I've been asked to come up with some very strange balloons for some of the birthday parties we have attended. One of the strangest requests was for this American wrestler Roman Reigns. Though the basic design came from Ken Stillman's (Superheroes) there has been quite a few adaptions made, which I feel have improved the basic structure. How many can you spot? I've been playing with feet recently and was actually quite pleased with these shoes on this model. However I kept playing with different designs until last week when I think I've finally what I was looking for in a shoe, which I hopefully intend to use for a long time to come.

I had a request for a a sculpture for an event I was hosting tonight. so I took along a little singing leprechaun (Well why not??)  :)

Picture Gallery / Henry Huglemonster
« on: November 16, 2014, 03:29:42 AM »
I was asked to have a go at Henry this weekend for a young lads birthday party. The parents wanted to have him as a extra special table decoration to sit with his cake. After Googling (is that an actual word yet?) an image of him this is what I came up with. Just in case anyone's interested the head is a 1" Goldenrod Q-Link with a 646 inside to give it the shape I wanted. It's also the first model that I've really used Balloon Bond tape on (his nose). That stuff is amazing! It worked like a charm.

I was asked to make R2 for delivery this weekend. and though it was a bit of a manic week with everything else going on at the same time (Halloween) I couldn't really not try to squeeze it in. It's the first time I've really played with double stuffing for any length of time. All I can say is that it was different. More time consuming actually doing the stuffing, easier to handle without fear of breakages, but also harder to handle with the weave. There's a lot of little bits and pieces missing from the final design, but only for those like me that are sad enough to know  :) .

I have been nominated on Facebook for the 5 Day Challenge by Graham, and have decided not only to post up on there but also on here too.
Day 1: Lady & the Tramp

Picture Gallery / Tangled Tower
« on: September 27, 2014, 12:55:04 PM »
Last weekend I was asked to have go at making the tower from Tangled. I'm pleased with the way it came out, though might change a little section here or there if I was to make this again. The tower was completely free-standing, probably around 6 1/2ft tall in the end and I had to built it in 2 sections and then joined them together. It was a real pleasure not on to do this young ladies party but also to make this tower, it's also the first video thank you that we've had back from a child, which was lovely.  :)

Last weekend was a little on the busy side but really enjoyable at the same time, sometimes it's so hard to know when to stop on a model don't you think? There was so much more that I wanted to add to each of these birthday balloons but unfortunately time wasn't on my side. Thinking about it though time is never really on my side I keep getting older every day...Anyway enough deep and meaningful stuff from me, and just to help those who do use the search button,  Buzz Lightyear & Tinker Bell ;-)

Picture Gallery / Tom and Jerry

KJ (my better half) set me a challenge the other week to make another blast from the past and I have to really admit to enjoying this build. Normally I base these special builds from a random image from Google and recreate them exactly, however this time I have had to change the positioning to make Jerry look a little bit more like Jerry. I know it probably means nothing to anyone else but it bothered me that I had to do it. Just need to find them a good home to see out the rest of their days with, I was thinking about taking them down to the local library and seeing if they were interested. Has anyone ever done this before and how did it go?

Events. Balloon, Magic, Etc / FAB Mega Jam 2015
« on: March 28, 2014, 12:14:53 PM »

Hope those who were at Leeds this week have recovered from all the madness...I'm not sure that I ever will though  ;)

Anyway...I mentioned the FAB Mega Jam again and promised to post up the link. There are just 10 places left available to book (with 100 delegates being our total) and we would love to see some more twisters there - after all, that was one of the main reasons behind setting up the event in the first place. I twist, my partner paints but there weren't that many affordable events where we could do both together so we decided to create our own! Next year will be our 3rd year and we have some very special things planned. Don't just take my word for it, read the reviews on the Facebook page or ask those who have attended before  :D I do have everything crossed that Twist & Shout won't clash yet again but it has done for the last 2 years so I know that if it does, that is where some of you will be. Las Vegas vs Cambridge...hmmmm, not really a hard decision though, lol!

We have a designated Balloon Room but twisting goes on all weekend long, with many delegates starting from the Friday and not stopping until they go home either Sunday or Monday. We are still in the planning stages of some pre-Mega Jam workshops, one of which will be Advanced Balloons, and these details will be posted up on the Facebook page too as soon as they are finalised.

DATE: 31 January - 1 February 2015
VENUE: Menzies Hotel & Golf Club, Bar Hill, Cambridge
EVENT: (All the pricing information can be found in the Pinned Post at the top of the Event Thread).

If you have any questions, give me a shout but you might get a better answer by messaging the page where KJ or Liz will respond.

Go on...have a look! You know you want to  :mrgreen:

Over this last weekend at the FAB Megajam I was asked very late on the Saturday night if I knew who these two characters were. Though I had heard of them I'd never seen the cartoon before. On the Sunday morning I was asked to come with something and unfortunately at the time I only had a short while before heading out to teach a class on weaving so I thought I'd have another go once I got home.

Picture Gallery / Stitch
« on: January 12, 2014, 03:13:13 AM »
Last week I was set a challenge to make Stitch from the films. It's due for delivery later today luckily enough at the restaurant where I twist on a Sunday afternoon. I'm lucky enough to be able to display it at the bar during the day, for a little extra advertising. The one drawback with this however, is that I'm dreading how many people will see it and want one of their own made for them at the their tables.

Picture Gallery / The Lorax
« on: October 23, 2013, 02:03:57 AM »
I had a party to go to last weekend and instead of making a birthday balloon for the little girl in question, I was asked if I could come up with a Lorax balloon for her. She wanted one to take into her class at school as they are doing a project on the environment and and she loves Dr Seuss books.

Picture Gallery / Doc McStuffin??
« on: September 26, 2013, 10:41:52 PM »
Really!!! I would love to know who comes up with the some of the ideas for the cartoon characters today, whatever happened to the good old classics like 'Dungeons & Dragons' and 'Battle of the Planets'. I had to come up with some balloons for Doc McStuffins last weekend for a party and decided to make most of the individual ones (there were over 30) wearable's. I was really pleased with the speed that these went together. having such a large order to fulfil it gave me more time to spend on the Doc herself. There are a few improvements I would make to some of the figures if I had to do them again, but I think I would leave 'Lambie' alone. (Surely they could have up with a better name than that??) :D
