Made it Monday!

I am not feeling very accomplished right now so this maybe a hard post to write! Hopefully it will be cathartic! As part of blogging101 I have decided to take part in this Made it Monday event every week for at least four weeks. This is week 2.

So what did i achieve last week? I managed to do a session on balloon modelling (something which I tend to find hard to make time for!) and tried out my goat castrators. Don’t be scared, these are a tool that balloon artist use to put things inside balloons, in my case confetti. I even tried them out on the weekend, it looked quite pretty! Here is a picture of this tool with an elastic band on

Hopefully you can get an idea of how they work for balloon modellers! Here are some shots of what it can look like
