What can YOU do with 60 Balloons?

Check it out:
What do you think? Cool, huh?

Did I do that? I WISH! Actually, it's the work of a woman I met at the gym. She was taking the same toning class that I was and she introduced herself. Her name is Janie. I later found out that she offers clowning classes (and other classes) at the gym under the moniker of "Zany Janie." Once I got to know her, I realized it is a completely appropriate name for her.

Since then, we have attended a couple of events and book readings with her. Miss K has developed quite a fondness for her. She's pretty cool… and does amazing work in both balloons and face painting.

When I saw the balloon witch at the gym today, I just had to post it because it's so awesome. I stood the kids in front of it to give some perspective on how tall it is, which you can also tell from the fact that it is in front of the door!

Even with balloon classes, I don't think I would ever be able to make anything THAT cool!

Edit: Janie forwarded me information about Balloon Manor, a charity event. They used approximately 130,000 balloons by 65 artists and 200 volunteers. Wow!
