Diamond Jam 2009

Hello, all!

Well, I believe I have finally recovered from my trip out to Las Vegas to the Balloon Twisting Convention, Diamond Jam. The highlights of my trip were working on a life-size pink Cadillac made from balloons with Robbie Furman and a great team of balloon twisters....

and placing third in the New Diamond competition (for individuals who have never competed before).

"Look Mom, no hands!"

I do have more pictures on my Facebook Fan page and hope to upload the remaining pictures from my camera by the end of next week also to my Facebook Fan Page.

Also, a friendly reminder that this Saturday I will be twisting balloons at East Coast Thunder from 2-4PM. The event begins at 12PM and is very exciting. Click here for more information!

Have a wonderful rest of the week, everyone!

A balloon home for my daughter and a visit at Manatawny Manor

Hello, all!

I was able to snap a few pictures this week that are worth sharing. Darling Daughter and I decided to just have fun making a balloon home type of structure - it turned into an entranceway for her bunkbed hut. Could it be more colorful? She enjoyed decorating the "stained glass window" portion.

Today we visited Manatawny Manor for their "coffee & conversations" get together. My daughter was on her official assistant duty today (she assisted and made a few balloons for the residents) and did very well. I knew the residents would enjoy her as much (if not more) than the balloons.

And this is just proof that balloons are not just for children! This lovely woman said to me "..and I wasn't planning on coming to this today. I'm so glad I did."
