Spot Light: United Methodist Cross / Mary Johnson


United Methodist Church – Balloon Cross

It is always nice when I get repeat business, there is a very special lady named Mary Johnson, no relation to me. Mary is a senior like me and volunteers her time and energy to the United Methodist Church.

Over the years I have gotten to know Mary quite well, she is a dedicated person. Keeping young by taking care of her mother who is 90 something and volunteering.

One of the unique things about Mary is she doesn’t have a computer so all correspondence (emails) goes through friends of hers.

Her group, Metropolitan District Annual Celebration (MDAC), part of the United Methodist Church wanted a stained glass looking cross made out of balloons.

Her friend Curtis emailed a photo of a stained glass cross, if you know anything about stained glass…it uses different shaped pieces of glass to form a great looking piece of art.

Well balloons are round, so the dedicated design crew had to put on their thinking caps to create a visually appealing look for the cross.

The look or pattern we chose is a “Diamond Pattern” it looks similar to a cross in some ways. We used this pattern for the vertical piece of the cross.

To be honest with you, our cross didn’t look anything like the stained glass cross picture Curtis sent me . Ours did look great and was well received by the MDAC members. Lots of photos were taken and people were amazed that our cross was made only with balloons.

Mary called me and told me just how wonderful it was and that the all of the people were amazed at how the colors on our cross matched the colors of of their stained glass cross. Thanks Mary for the instant feed back.








The Lighter Side:

It is that time of the month again…..time to laugh, chuckle or giggle…….I am talking about the Lighter Side.

The sign at the Comedy Club says IMPROV,” but I had a bad set on Friday night, so yesterday they put an “E” on the end of it.

You will have to tell me how bad I was. This is some of my best material I used. So email me and tell me how great I am.

1. If my kid couldn’t draw I’d make sure that my kitchen magnets didn’t work.

2. I had a happy childhood, My Dad would put me inside a tire and roll me down a hill, they were Goodyears.

3. Even though I’ve gone bald, I still keep the comb I’ve had for nearly twenty years. I just can’t part with it.

4. Rap is like scissors, it always loses to rock .

5. It only takes 3.5 inches to please a woman, it doesn’t matter if its Visa or MasterCard

6. I knew a woman who owned a taser, man was she stunning!

7. Women are the only species that defy the laws of gravity, the more they weigh, the easier they are to pick up

8. I got in trouble at the local park for lining all the squirrels up in order of height, they didn’t like me critter sizing.

9. Darth Vader had a corrupt brother Taxi Vader.

10. I’ve never seen a tombstone that read: “Died from not forwarding that email to 10 people.”

11. I’ve just won our local Iron Man competition, 20 shirts in half an hour.

12. Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, Teddy Grahams Bear, and Count Chocula perish in a house fire. S’more at eleven.

I hope you enjoyed this months Lighter Side…. funny the Lighter Side is the most read article on my blog…. Gosh, there are a lot of sick minded people……. LMAO





Spotlight: Mitzvah Mania

Mitzvah Mania is a once a year event for Jewish families whose son’s or daughter’s are going to have a Mitzvah in the near future.

It is a fun filled event, where vendors who are experts in their field, show case their profession. One stop shopping if you will.

You might need a venue, caterer, florist, DJ, balloon decor, face painter, a baker, photographer, invitations, air brushed T-shirts, photo booth, novelties, party planner or videographers. All this and so much more, all in one place.

I have done this event since the very beginning and have been so fortunate to meet a lot of great people. I look forward to this event every year to see old friends and meet new ones.

There are plenty of reasons to attend, but I think the most important one is all the vendors who participate are experienced in providing services for Bar & Bat Mitzvah’s.

This event is  free of charge  to you the consumer.

Come to our booth and receive a  10 per cent   coupon off your event. I think you will get quite a surprise what we can do with a fun theme with balloons.
