HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 2007 Michael, my Husband, our two Sons and I went to Disney World. When we visited the Animal Kingdom I immediately wanted my face painted, and I MADE my Husband, and kids do it with me (don’t my teenagers look thrilled). I had a blast walking around with my three Tigers.
I watched them paint, I was fascinated with the vibrant colors and amazed at the speed of the artist. The transformations were fantastic! While my Husband and Sons were painted, I watch other children and adults being painted I was inspired from the excitement each person showed when viewing their new face in the mirror, and immediately I wanted to learn this art form.
In 2007 I started my own face painting business. We book events in Sacramento and the surrounding area, teach other women how to start their own business, and sell the best professional supplies for a successful business. I know this is a great small business for anyone who needs an extra income, and if for nothing else ……. JUST FOR FUN!
My Husband, Michael, and I opened and had operated Balloon Creations By Carolyn since 1989. We expanded our services by adding Face Painting and Balloon Twisting services.
In 2007 we started selling professional face painting and balloon supplies. Later we opened a retail store named Just For Fun Art.
I was never really sure if I wanted to sell products online. Once in awhile, we mail a cake to two if the postage will cost less than the gas for our regular customers.
Both of our businesses are owned and operated by our family. All five of our kids grew up in the balloon business. Now our oldest daughter, Amy, runs the balloon business with her Dad, so I can spend more time with our two girls still living at home, and have fun with our newest business... Just For Fun Art
JUST FOR FUN ART GROWS!
Over the last six years, we have added Balloon Twisting, Henna, Glitter Art and much more to our services. We now have a retail selection of all Wolfe FX, Tag and Mehron professional makeup, Qualatex entertainer balloons, and everything else professional performing artist use in their business. We have beginner art classes, and free jams on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.
We have recently moved to a larger studio and have added acrylic, oil and mixed media art classes for adults and children. “Paint Parties” are trendy so we now have private parties at our studio, and we go on location to wineries, local restaurants, and other venues.
My Mother was an artist. I grew up learning every kind of art imaginable. I can walk through Michaels and remember every form of art we did together. My Husband and I are now into Trash to Treasure Art. We recently found a steering wheel shaft from an old Model T Ford. We are using the steering wheel as the base, extending the shaft and turning it into an apron and coat rack for our studio.
BALLOON CREATIONS BY CAROLYN
We have our 24-year-old balloon business, “Balloon Creations By Mike and Carolyn.” Located in the back half of our building.
Since 1989″ Balloon Creations By Mike and Carolyn” has served the entire Sacramento area and all surrounding cities. We expanded from delivering Balloon Bouquets to decorating for wedding receptions, and corporate events. We have also added outdoor advertising balloons and helium tank rentals to our selection of services. We have received many awards for our creative work, customer satisfaction and our involvement in the community.
Balloons can transform small and large venues into places of celebration. Balloons can be used for accents only, to an already attractive location, or they can transform an ordinary plain venue into something spectacular! Not only will balloons add color and beauty to your event, but their adaptability and value are unsurpassed by any other decorating medium.
As Certified Balloon Artists through the Qualatex Balloon Network, we have undergone extensive training in the application of key design elements in balloon decor. It is the most comprehensive certification program in the professional balloon industry to ensure all participating members are knowledgeable and dedicated professionals.
Choosing “Balloon Creations By Carolyn” or “Just For Fun Art” for your next special event will be rewarded with quick responses, creativity, attention to detail and respect for your budget. Please visit our galleries and read our testimonials. We look forward to serving you and making your event spectacular!
