Well I had something in my head that I wanted to try out. I wanted to try a new way to do a bodice for a female balloon sculpture. I also wanted to try out a new way to do a skirt. I had this story in mind of a Summer Fairy who in her mourning that summer is gone is doing a goodbye ballet dance.
I made a couple of poppy flowers and some neat weird spiral flowers that I learned on YouTube via Sergey Loginov.

I am going to play around with my bodice idea more and I have some exciting ideas for projects that I can do at home.
This piece I made as a thank you gift for someone. I am going to surprise them with it today. 🙂
Hope they like it.
Here is a video compilation of all the balloons I have made since Sept 27nth of last year. I made my first balloon Sept 27nth 2012. Here it is, year 3 already.
I am really excited and passionate about this art and I really feel my best work is yet to come. I have lots of ideas and inspirations that I will be attempting to translate into balloon form here soon and will be getting back to posting lots of helpful things I have learned that I hope will be of help to others.
So here you go, Year 3!
I have had a blast and can’t wait to further evolve as an artist with this medium.
Today I turn 33 years old.
My mother gave birth to me when she was 33 and will most likely pass away when I am 33.
She has terminal cancer and it is getting worse and worse fast.
I have not been doing well myself lately and haven’t been able to make any balloons as a result.
I will hopefully be able to resume making balloon art around the house soon but I am in no condition to be able to do things quickly and do anything too strenuous.
Not sure what the future will bring but I have peace of mind and I feel my greatest work is yet to come.
I have been going through a lot of medical tests and will soon be seeing a specialist but that will take a while. In the meantime, I have personal artistic plans and projects that I intend to pursue at my own pace, I will be slower but not down for the count.
Also my 3 year balloon sculpting anniversary is later this month so I am very excited about that. I made my very first balloon Sept. 27nth 2012. It was the classic dog.
My absolute favorite and most important piece I have made thus far is what I dedicated to my mother, The Tree Lady and Girl in Mourning.
I don’t want to make balloons, I want to make art, my medium just happens to be balloons. 🙂
I got to see some family members from Texas over Labor Day weekend, including my Nephew’s daughter which would be my second niece or great niece? Not sure what exactly I call her,lol. They stayed at my mother’s house and were making a special trip to visit her since she has terminal cancer.
She loves ponies and Rarity is her favorite and so I made her this as a present. It is inspired by a Pinkie Pie balloon made by Michael Floyd.
She just loved it!
