      Haha good timing - I just came on here for the first time in a few days to ask you how you fared!

      That's not too bad - better than me, anyway! Yeah, the rainbow combo is popular - and anything pink! I hate the idea of having to cut up unused balloons to make these, so whatever I have in my scrap tins are the ones I use. Bright combos seem to fare better than dark ones

      Yeah, we're into trade show season now, haha. The next one that I'm doing isn't until the spring though (the wedding shows are everywhere right now), so I'll have to hold off on making new ones for at least a few months :P

      I considered offering them as a purchase add on for parties, but A)that's not what I want to market B)I'd rather practice actual twisting and painting than making bracelets and C)I think that might be a whole different game with them being goods instead of a service, you know?

      Definitely let me know! I'm hoping - dang! Just realised my neighbours were over tonight, and I meant to give a couple of bracelets to the 9 y.o. to start to wear, and totally forgot. Bunk! - anyway, hoping that they catch on like those Silly Bandz - these are obviously way cooler!

      What are your colour combos like?

      Hey Lolly Plop!

      It wasn't a festival, per se - it was the Home + Interior Design trade show, haha. Not where you'd expect a painter/twister to be, but I've made some good contacts and booked some great gigs from there, so I'll keep doing them :)

      So it wasn't a festival crowd, nor a festival mind set - lots of people exclaiming over the balloon jewelry (I also made necklaces - I'll try to remember to post photos), but not tons of sales. 7 bracelets at $2 each, and 4 necklaces at $5 each. Mot mentioned selling out of his, so I'm a bit jealous :P Not awful for a debut, though.

      My leftovers are tucked away for the next festival - except for a couple of each which I absolutely adore, and am wearing myself!

      Are you going to give them a shot?

      Toodles!
