I have a little ziplock baggie with a bit of water in it. I keep it in one of my pockets in my bag.

I'm a small kid with small hands... so although 260s are standard for me, I like working with 160s and have the same variety that I do of 260s. I work big when requested or I feel like challenging myself, and I only have a few colors of 360s and 646/660s.

Just ordered a Mini Mac Light! Yay! Hopefully it will come soon.
I can't mouth inflate, but it's not really a big deal, because when people call me a "cheater for using a pump," I hand them a 160.

You can't stand seeing someone unhappy
You bring balloons to school, out shopping, etc
You know who a twister is, what kind of balloons they use, and whether they are comfortable twisting for crowds or not just by walking past them while they work
You have no "repertoire"... instead, you have a "Yes, I can make it"

Recently, I wanted some paint markers, so I went to Hobby Lobby.
I bought 3 kinds of paint markers, three colors of each: DecoColor, Sharpie, and Treehouse.
I absolutely loved the DecoColors. They did not pop any of my balloons, chip off, or change colors, and they were fairly inexpensive.
The Sharpie markers are good as well, but they do come off, and since it's cold, I guess they don't re-liquify.
The Treehouse markers worked OK, good value, but boy were they SMELLY! I did not use them again.

Thank you  Smiley
I think that the fact that I work as half of a pair may also be part of it, although two short people is still probably not as "scary" as a tall person.

From my (limited) experience I have learned that the kids who are afraid of entertainers are afraid of clowns (especially whiteface) and/or taller twisters. I don't dress up as a clown and am only 4'11" and probably won't grow any more, but still I get the occasional child who is afraid of me. I don't think I'm scary... is this normal, or is it me?

Twenty designs per menu. Again, I really appreciate it, guys!  Cheesy

I have a compressed air tank, which works fine (when it doesn't run out!)
I also have the red Qualatex single-action pump, which I load with balloons and take everywhere, and the purple Qualatex one for line work.

I bought Thunder Thighs and a Ken Stillman DVD and they came two days ago. I am very pleased, to say the least. Grin

I have now practiced... and practiced... and done volunteer work... and magic... and practiced. And finally, my friend (who is also a balloon twister, but she face paints as well) and I have made a website. It's a work in progress, so until it's fixed, I'm not attaching it to my profile. But I'm definitely getting better.
As for menus, we have three- a "wearables" menu, a line work menu, and a birthday menu. If anyone knows how old Dr Boe Loon was when he joined the forum (I only know this because I snoop around, looking for new ideas) I'm younger than him.
Anyways, thank you all for the advice. I hope to be a more active member of the forum soon.

I'm a volunteer for the Medina City Schools Foundation... so whenever there are big events on the Square or for school, I get to practice, and I get volunteer hours too.
