Some years later, my daughter's preschool needed a clown, my wife said, "Sean can do it." I agreed with the caveat that I'm not a clown.
I pulled out the balloon kit, ordered some new balloons and started looking around the internet for balloon twisting instructions. By the time the preschool event rolled around, I could twist 40+ designs from memory. The day went great, the kids had fun, I had a blast, and I kept on learning new designs.
Now I make just about anything people ask for (as long as it's appropriate). I don't use a balloon menu as you may have seen before. I like to stretch people's imagination and make the one balloon which will be perfect for them. I've had some great requests. Bicycles are the easy ones. I had one boy ask me for a chihuahua, another asked for an excavator. Pictures of those are in the gallery
