Trying to Photograph Unicorns

Here's a photograph of one of the BALLOONS that I created at a Child's Party.  We had So Much Fun!  But how best to capture a Unicorn.  From the Side?  From the Front?

Alison is amazing.  This is my second time having her create Caricatures, first at my granddaughters 1st birthday party and now at a 30th and 60th birthday celebration,  She arrives ahead of time and is fully prepared, she has a great personality and everyone loved her.  The caricatures were absolutely great and many of my guests told me they can't wait to frame them.  She is so talented and really added that extra "specialness" to the party.

From the start Alison was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and was easily accessible.  She did not disappoint.  We used her for our son's first birthday party and she was a huge hit!  The caricatures were incredible and made everyone laugh.  Would definitely recommend using her for any event.

Balloon Dog

Just keeping the kids Happy at today's BALLOON Twisting Party.  The boy said he wanted a Dog on a Leash.  Then he came back and said he wants me to make a Bone for the Dog and attach it to him.  Lol I'm laughing.  This is so much Fun

just a litl extra today ~
i found this Sonnet just walking by.
Madison Square Park ~ Manhattan, NY

It says: 

No more to be grieved at
that which thous
hast done.: 
Roses have thorns, and
silver fountains mud; 
Clouds and eclipses stain
both moon and sun,
And loathsome canker
lives in sweetest bud.

Quality Supplies

 I respect that people are paying good money to make their experience Special ~
I don't scrimp on the Supplies that I bring to an Event.

Even when I have the 'usual' Colors, they are high quality.  And sometimes I try out something new.  This time, even I felt wowed by the Color of this Balloon.  I gotta get more of these!
