Someone mentioned the character Bluey to me the other day so I thought I'd have a go at making him.

Balloon Chit Chat / New Website,
« on: October 08, 2021, 11:31:47 AM »
For the past few weeks we have been having a new website built. The plan was to update the old one and freshen it up a little.
BUT, he he, there is always a but, the site had not been worked on for quite a few years and was
a little out dated and by adding new we might have caused the old site to crash.

So we went with building a new site from scratch, well not me but the technical people.
As I'm sure many of you have noticed I struggle with technology. It's not my strong point.

It's been about a month in the process and we are hoping to launch the new site possibly on the 1st November, fingers crossed.
I'm sure we will have a few gremlins and things that need a tweak or two but fingers crossed it will go as smoothly as it can.

Then after that they are going to have a look at the forum and see if we can update Balloon Chat
or if not we will add a new forum to the front and keep the old site achieved and searchable.
Now even I know updating Balloon Chat will be a challenge.
Will keep you all posted.

There is a thread here on Balloon Chat with over 100 different Car pictures.....shock, horror.

Model Of The Month / September Model of the Month (Butterfly)
« on: August 27, 2021, 05:03:50 PM »
We have gone with a Butterfly for the model of the month for September.
I usually keep away from making Butterflies when out in the real world, no idea why
but with this design I must add it to the designs I make in the real world.

Will add the step by step instructions shortly.

Model Of The Month / Free Zoom
« on: August 25, 2021, 02:40:33 PM »
I'm going to try and run a free zoom once a month for those who purchased product from us the month before.
The first one will be in October for those who get the free complimentary packs of balloon in September.
