Balloon Chit Chat / Re: Twisting Fun 4 Everyone
« Last post by Graham Lee on September 27, 2020, 08:52:33 PM »
"Balloon Twisting Fun 4 Everyone" I filmed the 40 minute tutorial yesterday and the kits are now available online.
https://www.balloonartwholesale.co.uk/balloons/balloon-starter-kits/

There are five designs taught, Swan, Sword, Hippo, Snake and Teddy bear
with enough balloons to make each design 10 times.

Ideal for that Birthday or Christmas present to entertain all the family, well I like to think so XXxx.
If anyone could share this for me it would be appreciated.

With thanks to Lord G for doing some editing on the tutorial, even though I do mention there is no editing, oops
With thanks to Danielle for making the promotional video for the tutorials.
Many thanks to both, very much appreciated XXxx

The video can be seen on my Facebook page, I don't think I can download a video to the forum.

We filmed the tutorial yesterday, I was hoping to film all five designs in one go but I put too
much air into the Swan design so had to cut and refilm it again. Lord G is kindly sorting
this out for me and we should have them for sale live on the website for tomorrow.

The designs filmed were, Swan, Sword, Hippo, Snake and Teddy.

I'm never quite sure what to call these designs so just went with boy and girl.
I changed his shoes to match when they are together holding hands.

Balloon Chit Chat / Twisting Fun 4 Everyone

So like many others I have not worked for 6 months so looking at other ways to get a little income.
I have made up some Balloon Tutorial selection Box's and will possibly call it "Twisting Fun 4 Everyone"
There are five designs with enough balloons to make each design ten times.
You can purchase with a pump or without.
So this is the prototype, I will be filming the video tutorial hopefully today and
have them available to purchase on the website from Monday.

If anyone has any suggestions on the name to call the new project then all suggestions are welcomed.
I have been mentioning it as a selection box but the Twisting fun 4 Everyone is nice and catchy as well.

Day 10 of the challenge.
I nominate anyone who would like to join in.
I was nominated by Danielle Burnige
I was trying to work out what the last pictures/design would be. I have tried to post designs
that bring back memories for me and I have a soft spot for. Well this one certainly does,
as I'm typing this the hairs are standing up on the back of my neck. As I mentioned
yesterday in 2007 I entered "The European Balloon Entertainer of the Year" competition,
well I'm rather chuffed, well very chuffed actually to say I was placed first.
So apart from it being one of the more stressful times getting up and entertaining your peers,
I look back and its also one of the proudest balloon moments in my life as well.
From constructing the act and asking friends, Mike and Pearse what works and what
we should leave out. Then Sitting in a freezing cold scout hall with Pearse rehearsing
and filming it on numerous occasions trying to get it all to fit together,
the laughs we had, so so many......memories that stay with you forever, that mean so much. 💕

We did spend hours upon hours working things out with so many happy memories and laughter to
remember along the way, a lot of laughter when things went wrong, but all very happy memories to cherish.
Anyway this is me saying thank you to everyone I have met in the balloon world along the way in my journey.
Thank You XXxx.

Day 9 of the challenge.
I nominate anyone who would like to join in.

Love Heart, I have a soft spot for this design 💕
As it was my entry into the large sculpture competition at The Millennium Jam.
For my sins in 2007 I entered the "European Balloon Entertainer of the Year"
You had to make a large sculpture, a one balloon design and then enter a stage act.
I have to say It was one of the most stressful things I think I have ever done.
Nerve wracking is an under statement.
I will post my one balloon entry in the comments. below.
Over the years I have made a few variations on a theme of the love heart and did produce
a tutorial for the design and the roses if anyone would like to purchase it,

My old motor bike design that I used to say was two balloons but was two balloons and a scrap can
now be made with just two balloons using the chrome 260 as they are a few fingers longer.
