Elgin Hog Eye Festival 2011

Jakey with two of the "Sowpremes"

They put a pink boa on me to add some bling!

The Sowpremes arrived at the 24th Annual Hog Eye Festival in Elgin, TX. riding in on the back of Harley Davidson motorcycles! These gals can really sing!!

I made a lot of motorcycle balloons! The kids like having a choice of who is riding on it; a dog, a monkey, Mickey Mouse or Spiderman!

Personally I like the monkey on a motorcycle - I make great monkey sounds! :))
As my mother would say:
"Drives me bananas!"

I love working the home grown festivals in Elgin!

"The Land of Wulf"

"The Land of Wulf"

Is a story Jakey wrote and performs with balloon art!

Recently performed with the help of Morgan the Magnificent
(aka The Jokester)
plus all the kids at Charlotte's Birthday Party!

The basic story:

It is a land of puppies. Once a year the elder puppies gather under
the full moon and teach the baby puppies how to howl! This year
however, the full moon does not appear and instead the whole sky is a
bright orange.

The elders ask a variety of forest friends if they can help to find

out what is going on. It isn't until they ask Polly Parrot (who can
fly to the tree tops) that they discover the orange sky is actually a
herd of giraffes!

The giraffes had lost their home in a forest fire and ended up in the

land of Wulf. The tree tops in Wulf are covered in delicious purple
flowers that the giraffes can not resist! They all make friends and
agree that at the full moon the giraffes would not block the view!
Happy ending with the giraffes having a new home, and the baby puppies
all howling!!

Austin Dog Rescue - K9 Karnival

Hard to say who had more fun at Austin Dog Rescue's K9 Karnival - the people or the doggies! Jakey sure had a wonderful time making balloons for both!

"Austin Dog Rescue is a foster home based organization that saves dogs from high-kill shelters. The dogs we save were picked up as strays or abandoned by their family and were left with no hope of a better life. We believe that life is precious and the dogs we save deserve no less than a second chance at finding a loving, caring home. We are the catalyst behind giving them that chance."

There was an Obstacle Course and a Scavenger Hunt! One of the items on the Scavenger Hunt was a hat. So I ended up making a few balloon "hats" for the doggies!

Melissa from Austin Dog Rescue liked her purple balloon doggie! She did a great job organizing the K9 Karnival and also makes a yummy berry sorbet!! :-)

Old Pecan St. Spring Festival 2011

Did I say "spring"? I should have said summer!
Mother's Day hit 98 scorching degrees in downtown Austin.
Thank goodness for sunscreen and Gatorade...

The other clown at Pecan St. just looked at these 2 goofy guys weird when they asked him to make them "embarrassing" hats.
Doesn't stop Jakey!
A pink octopus & a neon flower hat ought to do the trick! LOL

Mom took the picture - sure wish she had gotten the bat that was perched on top of this kid's hat! Really made for a complete ensemble!! :-)

Okay. I admit Jakey wasn't the only colorful character at Pecan St.!!

These 3 siblings loved their hats!
I was given all of the flowers from the booth that is pictured behind them! The very talented vendor makes unique vases! Should have gotten one of them - all the flowers would only fit in this pitcher when I got them home!

A beautiful reminder of a very fun Old Pecan St. Festival!!

Valentine's Day Balloon Bouquets !!

It's been slow over Christmas and tax season, so I have been remiss in posting to this blog... Now Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and that signals the beginning to the busy spring season!
I have created a new page to my website: Special Occasion Balloon Bouquets

Once the PayPal button is added, I will start taking orders! Hopefully I will be very busy on Valentine's Day making tons of deliveries!
Balloons can be put together however people want them to be, with their own color choices!

Two poodles kissing (the blue poodle is expecting!!)

They can also add a card with a message, and have a picture taken of their loved one with the Balloon Bouquet!!
Of course Balloon Bouquets aren't just for Valentine's Day!
Cheer up a sick friend who may be in the hospital...
Surprise someone on their birthday without the additional expense of a clown...
Baby showers, weddings, centerpieces - the list goes on and on!

Order yours today!!
