Who of you will be there on Saturday ? (Michael I know you are.)
I wanted to come over to help decorate the lobby.

I can't stay at night, because my daughter has a concert (she's in a choir), but I'm free till about 17.00 hrs I think.

Aaaaah.... Good points Charles! We call it the bumper car syndrome, they just barge into their opponents, they dont play the thinking mans game.

Some sympathy would be nice thou. I'm a Stormers supporter (image)  The game I decided not to go watch live was the one where they wipped the Crusaders (image)  Just my luck.

The black are a seriously good team this year, we dont stand a snow balls chance in hell

Depending on the situation i sometimes use a printed schedule with my working times. Sounds silly but it helps a little bit when the information is printed.
After announcing that i will stop for lunch or that a have to for the day  I'll point at the printed schedule.
Doesnot work allways, but it sometimes helps

[QUOTE=balloongineer]. . .I did not have access to that part of the web site.[/QUOTE]
As stated above, you need to become a subscriber to see them.

Of course, now you wonder; Is it worth it?

I assure you, it IS! I joined the site two days before you did, and I became a subscriber in April. I wasn't sure of the value, since I couldn't see what I couldn't see, right? Plus, I had just paid for BHQ membership.You get to select what you think the value is, and I chose my donation accordingly. After seeing what is in the closed (to non-subscribers) forums, and the other benefits that I haven't even made full use of, I decided that I low-balled Dale. As I told him in my note then, if I find more value, I'll add on later. The reason I was able to confidently bid what I did on the recent Pig-in-a-Poke auction was, even IF Scott weren't joking, and all I won was the 1/2 bag of mis-printed alien heads, since the money went to Dale's efforts on the site, it still would have been worth it. That was merely an add on to my original donation, with a potential nice additional bonus for me in whatever I won in the auction. (Scott, I have witnesses about what to expect, so no deletions, now---but feel free to add on...(image) ) Also, from what I see of others, like Scott (October Hollow), giving generously, that should tell you something. Scott alone has donated quite a few things to the site's fund through his auction donations!

If all you did for this year was to fully enroll in this site, and not buy any books, DVDs, or other educational media regarding balloons, you would be able to learn a lot! But don't do that, either. Support the other creative folks here by giving back to them, too.

Welcome Mr. Micah.....

So in your 2 years of twisting, what have you found to be your favorite types of sculptures to twist?  Do you follow what in the books/videos/cds, or do you like to come up with your own stuff?  This forum can definitely springboard you to the next level of twisting and beyond.  If you can't find what you're looking for here.... I don't think it exists yet (image) .

It depends on which setting I'm in.  I love to make the really big stuff, the sculptures that take hours to build, but only when time allows. 

If I'm twisting at my restaurants, I'm busy busy busy.... so quick yet cute stuff comes to the top of my list... princess/fairy wands for girls (the less artwork needed the better when you're in a hurry).. boys love the light sabres and phasers (I really don't have time for detailed artwork at the restaurants)... then hats of course... those are always fun.... I do use a menu, then vary the degree of difficulty of each sculpture depending on how much time I have to make them. 

I Can't wait until Bonnie is done with her "project" (image)  so I can add lots of more cool stuff to my repertoire. (image)

If I'm twisting at a birthday party, intermediate to advanced sculptures are the flavors of the day.... unless there are a million kids (you know when they tell you there are 10 coming and 35 show up (image) ).....then I go back to my restaurant sculptures, but always something special for the birthday child.
