Back from Twist & Shout!, the best convention for balloon twisters!  Nothing like having more than 200 of us in a hotel for a few days learning new figures and filling the lobby and hallways with all sorts of creations.  Hairbands with balloon accents and a variety large backpack costumes were generating the most buzz.  I'm looking forward to making these in the months ahead.

Twisting at the "Up All Night" event at Keuka College was a blast!  The students raising money for St. Jude's Research Hospital worked very hard, and it was an honor to be one of the sponsors of the event and help entertain during the night.  Hearing how St. Jude's helped one young lady's brother fight cancer and provide some extra time for the family was very moving and a poignant reminder of how important time together is.
