“Cheerful Cherry Chum” MadeWithBalloons™ from the “Rainbow Collection” of Graham Rouse

"ROUSEings" logo-icon“Cheerful Cherry Chums” comprise one of the characters MadeWithBalloons™ in my “Rainbow Collection” begun in the mid 1980s. They all have small greeting cards with short stories about them. The cards also include “Care And Feeding Instructions”.  I plan to share them with you over time here in “ROUSEings”.


Cheerful Cherry Chums begin as Magic seeds dropped from the Cherry Loon Balloon Trees that grow near the Sweetwater Marsh at the other end of the rainbow. Many of the seeds provide enchanted nourishment for the Rainbow Loon balloons, Happy Hoppers and other charmed creatures that inhabit the Balloon Forest. Some of the seeds are nurtured by the spring rains, kissed by the sun and soon burst forth free of the earth. They scurry about among the Cattail Balloon Tails and Flower Loon balloons spreading good cheer wherever they go.
This Cheerful Cherry Chum bouquet has been sent to you all the way from the Balloon Forest at the other end of the Rainbow with special wishes that its enchanted magic will charm your spirit and add good cheer to you days.


Balloons are fragile and subject to deflate without notice especially if they are treated roughly or punctured by contact with rough, sharp, or hot surfaces. To maximize the life of your balloon sculpture place it in a cool, dry and shady location where you will see it often. Leave it undisturbed except to:
  • Feed it by blowing two gentle puffs of air in its directions three times a day.
  • Talk to it frequently about good things in your life.
  • Throw it a kiss or, at least, wink whenever you pass.
