The holidays are filled with opportunities to surprise and delight friends, family, and coworkers. A really fun option is to present them with Balloon Candy Cups: balloon sculptures topping a clear cup that holds treats and/or gifts. I offer candy cups from $5 (unfilled/simple designs) up. The average price is $8.00 for candy-filled multi-balloon cups. […]
Just had a terrific time at the Summit High School Band Booster Craft Festival in Arlington, Texas. Face painting and glitter tattoos were offered and had a great reception. Nothing beats that wonderful smile when someone sees their “new face”!
Did you know that I teach painting/craft classes? YES! I can combine these with a balloon twisting or face painting time at a birthday or other type of party.

Very excited to see the site […]

I didn’t always understand that about myself. And somehow, as I moved into retirement, I thought I would […]
At nearing 66, I have a few experiences under my belt. Either I’ve gone through things myself or have watched friends and family on their travels. There are a lot of resources on the web, but not all of them are healthy, helpful, or necessarily well informed. I think most of us run to the […]
