Holiday by the Tracks

in Elgin was a LOT of fun!
The mascot Riverbat from 
was there!

Lots of holiday balloons were made.
Jakey got pictures of this happy young man 
with a 2-headed dragon, 
and these 2 best friends with 2 kitty cats! 

Two weeks later Jakey got this picture of Elmo with a giraffe she made for him!
It was Jakey's Birthday (12/15)
and it was fun having Elmo help her celebrate!

Happy Hollydaze!!

 Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
was very popular at the 
Little Acorn Academy in Cedar Park!

Jakey did a LOT of baking!
Cookies and breads - yummy!
What better way to deliver them on 
Christmas morning, but with 
mini-Rudolphs as bows?  :)

I felt that the felines needed representation too!

It wasn't just Jakey and the doggies in costume!

Old Pecan Street Fall Festival 2012

 There are some die-hard UT Longhorn fans
in downtown Austin!

For the first time ever, Saturday's Old Pecan Street Festival was basically cancelled...
The weatherman put a lot of fear into people, predicting up to 8 inches of rain and wide spread flooding.
The organizers cancelled the bands and the food vendors.
I would have gone anyway, but if it floods out where I live, the roads become inaccessible...

Sunday was a gorgeous day - tons of beautiful sunshine and thousands of people came to Pecan St.!
I stayed busy making balloon art for 9 hours straight!

So busy, that I only got these 2 pictures!

These kids had a lot of fun - and so did I!!  :)

Birthday Party!!

At first Lela was shy, 
having never encountered a clown before...
She quickly warmed up to me though!
After all, turning 3 years old 
makes you a BIG girl!

Plus - mama was there!  :)

Independence Day of India

The women and traditional outfits of India are gorgeous!
Many dressed up to commemerate

The celebration at the North Austin Events Center included music, singing and dance!
Austin's Mayor Lee Leffingwell spoke to the crowd, and a minute of silence to respect the victims of the Sikh Temple massacre in Wisconsin was observed... 

Many thanks to Austin Christian Fellowship of India, as well as Finel and his lovely family for including me!!

Oh, and I made a bunch of Octopus hats too!!  :)

The Dog Days of August....

  should be renamed to 
"Octopus Days of August"!

After all, octopuses swim!
Well so do dogs, but the octopus actually lives in the water.
Stays nice and cool...
Which we should all do in the summer heat of August!

I'll be in the pool!!!  :))

Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival 2012


 Silly Sparkles the Clown did face painting...

Crowds gathered on both sides of Lake Pflugerville to await the firework display and listen to some great music!

Mercy also did face painting, and her husband also did balloon art!

I twisted blue Mardi Gras beads in my hair, and made golden "fireworks" for the ends!

It was a HOT day on the 4th of July!
The crowds started showing up when the weather started cooling down...

Everybody had tons of FUN!!

Octopus Hat!

 I have been delinquent in my blogging!  The events I have worked since March - well I've been so very busy making balloon art that there was no time to take any pictures...

Just these two pictures from the entire spring!
Yesterfest in Bastrop was SO much fun! 
I was able to give away my balloon art to the kids!

Not just for kids!!

Pecan Street Spring Festival - many pictures were taken of me, but they are all in other people's cameras!

A funtastic party for a 4 year old - came up with this ditty...
Four is NOT a bore
Four is NOT a chore
 Four is SO much more

A Spring Festival at a day care in South Austin was a BLAST!!!

I will do better with my blogging!!!
