I am never quite sure what to write in these things ... but ummm here goes ...

I not clown ... I may dress funny (but thats a matter of opinion ... I think everyone else dresses funny)

...but I don't do stupid clown stuff or have crazy (white face) make up (it creeps me out ... completely)

I am a lover of all forms of craft, but especially balloon art, which likely makes up 95% of the gallery here.

I am also responsible for the alphabet game ... and plan on starting a new one soon ... for more information please check out my journal.

If you think there is something I haven't made out of balloons that you would love to see made, why not drop me a note, while I don't do commission as such (unless I happen to be in the same country as you), I do create instructional tutorials and trade pictures of things that are custom created with other people on :devart:

If you ever get the chance to see a street show, I recommend you take it, as everyone is always different, no matter how similar they seem, as it is people like you who help to make them different, and always remember even if you can't afford to give a tip to the performer at least shake his hand and tell him you enjoyed the show it will make it all worthwhile!

Wow ... again I apologise to all those I have meant to touch base with but things have been increasingly hectic,

I am just going to head out to Ashbourne shortly to collect some extra balloons for this weekends fun and games ...

We have Eirtakon 2011 out a DCU where I will be twisting balloons into anything you want just come and ask and it shall be made (for a small fee of course). Alas I can only make the Friday (tonight) with the pub Quiz and tomorrow, and so will not be there on the Saturday, but plan to have lots of fun regardless.

Then I have a Charity fundraiser on the Sunday.

Which brings me up to Monday spent recovering from all the twisting, and lots of paperwork.

Tuesday restock my balloons for the weekend coming ... and a workshop with the Trinity Jugglers

Wednesday will be spent trying to take up my new trousers organising dry cleaning, etc.

Thursday will be spent packing for the weekend in Tralee, adding finishing touches to Minutes of various meetings and start working on newsletter

Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be spent at the Tralee Circus festival having fun and leading workshops ...

Maybe next week I will get some time to tidy up photos and things ... but we'll see :P

Please, if you need to reach me, just drop me a note!
