Not only that, is she a dedicated full-time teacher who found her passion for balloons while searching for a unique way to celebrate her students' birthdays. Starting with simple balloon animals, Abby quickly delved into the fascinating world of balloon decor, mastering the art of transforming ordinary balloons into mesmerizing creations that spread joy and excitement.
