Happy New Year!

I was sitting here, glad the election is over and for some reason I'm thinking about clowns...

Go figure.

The knitting was just to keep from throwing myself out the window from boredoem. The teaching was just because I can.

How could two months have gone by since my last post? It must be the busy season. and I have my picture in the paper. I will post it once I have seen it for myself.
I had to order balloons again. How is it possible that some colors keep running out-and not the colors you would expect! I was out of orange, red, light brown and light pink. got some sparkles while I was ordering, cause, hey, you always need sparkles!

princesses and sunshine

It's been all princesses and sunshine since my last post. Somehow I did not get a balloon jam squeezed into my June schedule. Huh. Can't imagine how that happened. If anyone had happened along, I would have been happy to jam at Itasca. It only took one hand to hold the birkenstocks while I crossed the headwaters. And I'm sure Paul and Babe would have been delighted to see a jam at their feet in Bemidji. I certainly could have jammed once I got home, I just haven't straightened out my balloon box yet.
I have practiced girls in gowns, and boy o boy are they fabulous! a great trick for the gown, the bodice and making it look like any of the princesses you may have seen in recent and not so recent cartoons. 
We finally have sunshine here in Minnesota, and I have a new parrot with great eyes that is ready for prime time. I am planning a balloon jam in July, just hope that month doesn't mimic this month. Oops, it's after midnight. lets hope this month doesn't mimic LAST month. 
Happy fourth everyone!

I am trying to add the photos from last night, but alas, the server and system are not up to the task at this moment. I will try in another moment.

Big Fun in a Small Town

Thanks to all who showed up. The goal for a balloon jam is to Learn. Teach. and Network. I think we did that. the reminding that goes on while watching other people balloon twist is incredible. I stand amazed at the fun we have just twisting with friends.
Now to try uploading photos...
