Tell us about yourself!
My name is Cynthia, I started my company when I was switching careers and wanting more for myself. I have a bachelors in studio art. Right out of college I went to work and climbed the retail management ladder for over 12 years. I had always been artistic, patient in customer service and loved helping family/friends throw a great party or event!
I made my first balloon garland for a friend on her daughter's communion. It was one of those moments when a crafty person says "I can totally make that" while searching online. And here I am a Balloon Artist, 3 years in the making of a great small business where I can create special moments for my clients, see happy faces and push my artistic ability! I took that step further with decorating inside or outside of business' for special events or store openings. No event is too small for me to help create!
What are your Aspirations?
My aspirations are simple, to keep loving what I do and grow this business to the fullest! I just want to make clients happy on their special days. Keep giving beautiful balloon decor to all!
Can you describe what makes you feel FABULOUS while working?
I feel fabulous when my clients smile after creating an event for them! It is the simple joy of handing a bouquet to a child on their birthday and getting the best reaction! I see tears of joy, jumping, clapping, jaw dropping and words of love from all my customers after what I create for them. I truly am lucky to have a business where I give happiness.
