Have you ever wondered how or why that clown, magician, puppeteer, face painter, balloon man or lady got started entertaining children, adults, or anyone? Are they crazy?
Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but I will speak for myself.
A long, long time ago…. 1993 or 1994. Monday through Friday, I was a homeschooling Mom. I was looking for something to do to help out with the household expenses, and it had to be on weekends. I had a very good friend, also, a homeschooler, whose hubby was experimenting with clowning. Since I was/am a little crazy myself; I asked him to teach me a little of what he could do!
For me it was a marriage made in heaven, love at first sight!
Not with the clown!! With the balloons!!
Again, this was a long, long time ago… yes there was the internet, but it was before YouTube, and blogs. So I checked out books from the library, I learned from books, and others and by experimenting. Eventually my children (now adults) got involved too.
So now it is 2015, we have a small family business. It has been 21 years and I still love it! The kids, the balloons, the fun and the creativity involved enchant me. Every weekend is a new adventure; with new people to meet and new kids to make happy!
Here are some photos from past weekends!
