What is this blog about and who the heck are you?
I am so glad you asked!
I have been bitten by the bug of balloon sculpting and fell madly in love with it. My name is Patricia Gordon and I started balloon sculpting Sept 27th 2012. Since then I have been constantly learning something new and plan on continuing to do so for the rest of my life.
I have decided to make a blog about it and chronicle the adventures this passion will take me. I am sharing what I am learning about balloon sculpting and this is a show and tell of what I have made and how I am progressing, growing, evolving as a balloon sculptor.
I am a homemaker. I just by chance and by whim came across my 4-year-old watching a program where a man was making a balloon lion for kids and instantly thought as Liz Lemon puts it,” I want to go to there!”

My Balloon Philosophy
I want to show that balloon art is just as impactful and amazing and serious as any other art medium. I believe that balloons are for everyone, not just children, but the inner child in all of us that can experience awe and wonder with joyfulness. I strive to make pieces that have a soul.
