I feel a bit late to the party! My name is Tobi McJunkin and I have been twisting balloons for six years now full time. I bought my little girl a balloon kit one year and she asked me to make a balloon. I sat down in the mall to figure out my new little book of balloons and after about 45 minutes of trial and error, a lady walked up and asked me for my business card. For a moment there I thought she had me confused with someone, but she explained that she liked my balloon art and wanted me to come to her daughter's party next month. I did not know this was a profession until that moment and I have not stopped pursuing this profession since that moment.

I have read little tidbits from this forum over the years, but I don't think I have ever taken the time to sign up and contribute. I am usually in a rush to finish research for an upcoming project. I ran into a full discussion on Donald Duck today and decided that it was time to share. I can't say that I am extremely knowledgeable, but I have worked hard researching advanced techniques and pushing myself at growing every year.

I won 5 awards in balloon competition last year from sheer courage to give it a try and a bit of dumb luck. This year I hope to master new techniques in large sculptures and hone my skills in the fantasy flowers and balloon dresses.

Hi Tobi

I just checkout your website and blog.  Nice picture on the blog.  Looking forward to reading more blog post.  Habit of mine ;0)

Welcome sorry for the delay in approving post. I just has 12- spammers post 7 pages of spam.  I just finished deleting it.  After you have posted a couple more times, the system will automatically accept and approval is not needed.
