A new balloon twist for you!

We've gotten a lot of new fans after the 99 cent sale of the ebook on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. HELLLOOOOO!

So we're posting a new video. We created a new hat--a birdcage with a parrot in it!

So here we are making it.

Balloon twisting party!

Balloon twisting is always a part of what we do! This time it was at a carnival party.

People have been asking if we are going to do a more advanced book. Sometimes we think about it, but we think the easy stuff is just as much fun. Once you know the basic twists from our book, you can actually get the grown-up books and learn a lot more.

We found that when you first start twisting, those books are too hard to understand. That's why we made ours! But once you've got the basics, you can move on to the harder books much easier.

Ice Cream Festival!

Emily and Elizabeth twisted balloons for hundreds of kids at Austin's Ice Cream Festival.

It was over 100 degrees outside. Thank goodness for free ice cream everywhere! And a giant popsicle!

If you live in Austin, you should go next year! They had some REALLY WEIRD ice cream--even some made with goat's milk. (We didn't try it. Maybe next time!)

Back at magic camp!

We're back! Emily got much better at juggling and riding the unicycle. Elizabeth found new tricks that she loved!

At the final show, Emily was called on stage to help with the ring trick. Hope you are all having a great summer! The book hit the top 100 of Kids Crafts on Amazon AGAIN in June. We hope that means you are all making tons of awesome balloon animals!

Have a Merry Christmas!

Emily with her Rudolph and reindeer balloons at a book signing. We're all done with our signings now! We had a great time! We sold lots of books. And helped raise money for lots of things -- public libraries at the Texas Book Festival and our school library and even Kent Cummins Magic Camp! It's been a fun ride and thanks to all of you who came and saw us! Have a great holiday!

Great fun at Barnes and Noble

We were so nervous about going to Barnes and Noble but it was fun! Aaron from Kent Cummins Magic Camp taught everyone how to do balloon animals. Elizabeth got on stage and twisted two balloons too! We passed out balloons to everyone and helped them make their first twists. Some of the kids were really good!

Barnes and Noble ordered a gazillion books and we sold most of them! And $2 of every book went to the magic camp for scholarships so kids could go to camp next summer. Come to camp!! We'll be there too!!

If you came and got our bookmark and found our web site, THANK YOU!

And if you missed us, we have one more book signing and balloon twist on Dec. 6. See the side bar for that. Or buy our book on Amazon!

Great day at the Texas Book Festival

Okay, it was fun. But TIRING! We made lots of balloons and gave out lots of bookmarks and sold books too. For a long time it was nothing but grown ups, and they didn't want any balloons, but finally we found some kids!

We made brown bats and black cats and white ghosts. The white ghosts went as fast as we could make them, and they were cool!

Tomorrow we have a book signing and balloon twist workshop at Barnes and Noble at the Hill Country Galleria.
If you can come, well, come! Kent Cummins Magic Camp will be there, and everything in the store helps them let kids go to camp. And it's an awesome camp! We go! You should too!
