OCD Sprocket says:

can you tell what it is yet??

lps – it's quite easy to do, once you master the basics, and conquer your fear of the buggers exploding in your face

factotum – the batch was quite full tonight because I have 3 practice killer whales and they all wanted a splash in the tub

lol - I've progressed from origami to balloon modelling, I think it only right that for my next trick I juggle with flaming swords, either that or saw some hapless Moblogger in half.

I love the snake! Awesomeness.

OCD Sprocket says:

3m - I shall be bringing my balloons with me to Miss then

D3 – I'll release him into the local pond at the w'end

WE – can you believe the snake is the hardest to make!

16th Dec 2008, 09:41

Wendle says:

I can! How do you shape it? The others have twists, not bends?

16th Dec 2008, 09:44

OCD Sprocket says:

modelling balloons are surprisingly flexible so you can mould them once you have blown them, however, the trick with the snake is to wrap the uninflated balloon around your finger and then blow like crazy As the balloon fills with air it maintains the coiled shape. Ta Dah!

Wendle says:

Oooh... i may have run out and get some balloons, now!!

you have another career just waiting for you in these times of economic downturn......what would your professional name be?

Viv says:

your talents know no bounds!

MaggieD says:

Hahaha! These are brilliant :)
Though I have to say the second pic looks like there has been a mass slaughter :(
The third pic is my favourite (and the snake is most impressive .... and I have heard that twisting things round your little finger is a speciality of yours ;) ....
Pic 4 looks like the rubber duckies are, indeed, in vocal protest against the confinement of Orca/Willy in your bath ....

16th Dec 2008, 21:57

OCD Sprocket says:

hmmmm, my speciality . . . I guess you'd have to check with those that would consider themselves to have been twisted by my fair hand.

16th Dec 2008, 22:26

queserasara says:

HHHHHHHhmmmmm - my place curretntly looks like the 2nd pic due to someone having to practice - I have 2 snakes , a scottie & westie, a giraffe, 2 elephants & reindeer antlers!!!

OCD Sprocket says:

hmmm . . . sounds like you're one killer whale short, will have to drop one off

17th Dec 2008, 09:40

Dhamaka says:

QSS - please, please a photo of your balloon miscellany

17th Dec 2008, 15:00

MaggieD says:

Ah, well, when I was talking of twisting things around your little finger my thoughts were with Kylie's ringlets ;)

D3 - no, I didn't make any balloon miscellany, they were far too complicated
