Day 156-159: Stupid Internet Is Ticking Me Off!

I hate to have to do this again, but it seems that the lords of the InterWebs are dead set against letting me get a good connection to their series of tubes.

The internet connection at my house has been worse than ever, often dropping within seconds of making a connection. 

To make things worse, I couldn't event get online on campus with my laptop. The school was having problems with letting students sign in.

I have Time Warner coming out on Friday to take a look at things, this will be the 4th time I've had to call them out... lets see if they fix it this time.

Anyway, Here is me playing catch up again.  I was featured on the front page of the Kent State news paper today, so I want to get things all set in case this drives a little more traffic my way.

Day 156:  3 Headed Alien

You may recognize this girl as a regular contributor to the blog. She's the oldest child in my favorite family of regulars. I see them nearly every week, so that means she's always trying to come up with something to ask for that hasn't shown up on the blog yet.

She's addicted to the fame and notoriety that comes with being pictured here on the world famous 365 Days Of Balloons.

I suspect that I'm going to have to keep coming up with ways to add more and more heads to her aliens.

Day 157: Kangaroo

It seems that the Kangaroo is becoming a popular request since I posted it last week. I've had several more kids asking for it. As a result, it's continuing to go through an evolution as I make it over and over again, keeping the parts I like and changing up what I don't think works.

This is the whole reason I started the blog, to force myself to improve my designs.

Thank you for helping me out with that kids.

Day 158: Panda: Awesome is no extra charge.

Here is another of my regulars, asking for something I was surprised hadn't made it onto the blog yet.

The panda is a fun one to make, I just wish I could find a white market that I liked so I could give it better eyes.

I'm still on the search for the perfect white market that will solve a lot of face problems for me.

Day 159: Sunburst

This is something I hadn't made in a year or so. I used to make this at one of the restaurants I entertained at all summer because it went well with their decorations. I was trying to make a list of things I hadn't made in a long time and was excited to make this one again.  This girl works at the cafe next to where I've been training my newest balloon student on campus. She always comes over to chat, and usually ends up getting all the balloons we made during our sessions.

Alright. I'm back to today, so I'm going to make it a normal post.

See you tomorrow.
