I've had a query today via email for 3 twisters in South Herts from 10am to 4pm. Very vague at this moment in time but before I go back and ask for more information I thought I would see if there are 2 others that are available.

If you are free that day please could you email me at with your rates for that length of time. Also if I don't know you could you also include a link to your website / facebook page or somewhere where I can see what sort of balloons you make.

Many thanks

Balloon Tutorial & Help / Weaving Advice Needed!
« on: May 07, 2012, 09:37:54 AM »
I am currently working out 2 designs for ride on motorbikes for the same client and for once have plenty of time to work on it! However, one of the bikes has a white bit and visor at the front and I am wondering what is the best kind of weave to get the effect need.  I've attached a photo of what I am talking about.

and ignoring you lot but we moved house Saturday. Actually we packed up and moved house from Friday to yesterday and I am back at the old house making the most of the broadband whilst cleaning the house before completion tomorrow.

Not sure when I will be back on the internet so just in case I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. Will still get email on my mobile though so I may pop in and out if I get a chance but suspect I could be a tad busy over the next few weeks  ;)

Received this email but don't cover Crouch End and couldn't take a job on a weekday anyway. They are after someone for free and I have made no attempts to authenticate that this is an official charity event etc so if you are interested please check this all out for yourself.

We are two local nannies who are hosting a children's Christmas party at the Hornsey Vale, Crouch End. The event will be in aid of ChildLine with all profits going to them (it's their 25th year this year!).
We were wondering if you would be willing to donate some time to do magic/ balloon modelling on the day, or if you are not do you know any one who may?  Any help would be greatly appreciated as we have not been given much time to organise!
 If you are happy to be part of making this a success we can pop down with all our official papers etc.

Please contact the lady direct at

Balloon Decor / Did the most special job ever on Saturday
« on: October 03, 2011, 02:03:13 PM »
On Saturday I decorate the home of a couple getting married. Not so special on it's own until you hear that 1.5 weeks earlier he was told he was terminal and he had days to live rather than weeks and they were granted a special licence to marry.  They were just going to do it on a shoe string (as the bride has twin 13 year old and a disabled 8 year old son) but her maid of honour got in touch with the local radio station and asked them to help out.

They in turn put the word out to everyone they could think of to try and help these people have the perfect day. It was beautiful to see so many people pull together for them and that they were so overwhelmed by the number of people that wanted to help.

I also had a decorator from Norfolk (Graham Laycock - Absolute Balloony) phone me on Friday evening to offer his help too.  I've included a couple of the photos of what I did at their house because it was unlikely the groom would have been able to stay at the official reception for very long.


Balloon Decor / HELP!! I need to do a short write up for a brochure
« on: October 03, 2011, 01:43:37 PM »
I have just agreed to do a 2 day wedding fair at Wimpole Hall on the 15th & 16th October which is scary enough as it is but because I've booked so late I need to get a 50 word write up of my business to go in their brochure by the end of the day as it is being sent to the printers then.

I am fundamentally rubbish at self-promotion and despite sitting here for the last hour trying to think of something, anything, I still have precisely nothing!!

If any of you could lend a hand I would be extremely grateful as I suspect as the day wears on my writers block is only going to get worse!

Hi all. I'm posting this for a colleague - Jasmin Walsh as she doesn't currently have access to a PC.

The job is from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

If you available please call Jasmin on 07880 620191 for more info.

I have just been contacted by an agent(?) looking for a twister or juggler for this Saturday. The hours are 10.00-3.30pm but she is expecting about £190.00.

I know this is low but you may be able to negotiate with her for more if you are free but as I don't cover the area I didn't discuss this with her.

Her name is Fran and her number is 0161 7962225 or 07879 258625.

Balloon Chit Chat / Suggestions needed
« on: May 14, 2011, 06:33:03 PM »
Hi guys I am twisting at the Rugby next weekend and I intend to make a hat for myself to wear but not being a Ruby fan or even understanding the game at all I would like some suggestions of not only something appropriate but non-biased too.

I did think about weaving a rugby ball but thought it may look a little strange?!

I bumped into them on my retail portfolio course and they did give me their details but I can't find them and really don't have time to tear the house apart looking for them.

If anyone knows their contact details before Monday I would really appreciate it or I'll have to do my shopping in at least 2 different suppliers  :shock: and I would prefer not to. I'm not sure they were Enfield specifically but they were somewhere along the new road on the way to Tottenham.

I have had a personal referral to do balloons and face painting at a wedding in Launston, Bucks on 7th May but it would be 1h 30 mins from me and that is out of my area.

If you do both and cover this area please PM or email me and I will let you have the lady's number. Please do let me have a link to your website / facebook page / attach some photos though as this will be a personal recommendation from me for someone's wedding.

a hard copy of the Betallic / Sempertex catalogue. I am currently looking at Betallic's on-line one but each page is taking an eternity to load and I'm not even sure if I can get most of the products over here (although I am sure Graham will help me with that one).

Picture Gallery / Balloon for a Party tonight
« on: February 19, 2011, 01:31:03 PM »
One of my Hubby's work mates is having a 40th Birthday Party tonight and is a huge Elvis fan so I have made him a 4.5 ft tall Elvis complete with singing Elvis Balloon!!

Huge thanks to Kevin (Phoenix) as he talked me through his one last August and although I couldn't follow my notes from the conversation I did use them and his picture on here for guidance.

I'm not going to the party tonight as I couldn't sort babysitters but I have informed hubby that he will take photos of Elvis with the birthday boy or else! So hopefully more photos to follow tomorrow.

My copy arrived in the week from Aroedeco and I was so motivated to try it I made these little guys:-  [attachment=2:32do271n]Copy of Copy of DSC04528.JPG[/attachment:32do271n] [attachment=1:32do271n]Copy of Copy of DSC04535.JPG[/attachment:32do271n] [attachment=0:32do271n]Copy of Rachel_Lootle.jpg[/attachment:32do271n]

I am totally loving these guys and may have to play some more over the weekend as my Elmer's glue turned up today and it is too wet to test run my new stilts! Well I could really do without a broken neck!!!
