Can now put up the toppers I made for Sharon and Nick as their wedding day has come and gone.  I don't show any of my figurines until after the wedding because I would hate to be the one to spoil the surprise of what the bride's outfit looks like.  Plus of course a lot of grooms also like to keep their outfits a secret until the big day. 

I hope Sharon and Nick had a truly magical wedding day and I shall now look forward to hearing about it and seeing photographs of their big day.

Have just had a lovely two weeks break from toppers and not ashamed to admit that it was nice to not be at my craft table during that time.  I used the time to catch up on a moutain of paperwork and even managed to get away for a few days to Portland Bill in Weymouth. 

Now its time to dust off the cobwebs from my crafting table and get back into making those personalied cake toppers. 

I have a range of different ones do to over the next couple of months including a tractor, a sailing boat, a double decker bus, a horse and a motorbike- plus numerous dogs and cats.  Thankfully every set of toppers I make are different and totally unique to each couple - this makes it a lot more fun for me to do as would not like to make the same figurines day in, day out.

Below are just a few of the toppers I have done over the past months, most of them I could not post until after the wedding had taken place - as we all know the bride's dress is top secret and I would hate to be the one that spoilt the element of surprise from her partner and wedding guests.

Another New Year

Well 2012 certainly came at me with a huge whoooosh!! Not sure where 2011 went to but I was kept pretty busy not only with the crazy wedding rush over May to November but we also moved house and I reached the grand old age of 60!  Once I would been a pensioner but with the government moving the goalpost wider they have decided that I wont be one now until I have 61 and 5 months old and they will then let me have my pension, free bus pass and heating allowance!  something to look forward to in June 2013 then...

The personalised toppers I was commissioned to make in 2011 were really unique and a couple made me blink when I was reading just what it was they wanted to have on top of their wedding cakes.. but each to their own and at least the out of the ordinary toppers were totally unique to each couple.. just as it should be!

Here are just a few of them to show you what kept me busy.

Wedding Madness

Yes, the wedding madness is truly upon us now and will probably be crazy up until the begining of October.  I don't have time for my blog, twitter or flickr pages but will try and remember to post some pictures of recent toppers.

Couple are wanting their cake toppers to be so personal to them and they are thinking of more ways they can be made totally unique to them.  I think its great and even if at times its a nightmare, I enjoy the challenge and breath a huge sigh of relief when they are finished!

These are a few of them that have kept me busy over the past couple of months.

Urgent Wedding Cake Topper Order

Had a phone call for an urgent order and against all odds I managed to get this personalised set done and dusted in less than 48 hours. Still dont know how I did it and would not like to try one that quick again.

Wedding Fairs

I have been  busy getting ready for my first wedding fair this year on the 20th March which is 2 days before we go on holiday to Lanzarote and then have another one 2 days after we get back!  So, have to have it all organised and ready to just pick up and go.

I want to do a dry run and set my display out on the dining room table because this was a great saver last year when I knew what to do on the day.

Also making new display models as I feel last years are a bit outdated and want to do some up to date ones........will post pictures of those when I get them finished.

These are just a few of last years display models.

Start of a New Week

Monday the 24th January.  Already the year has made a fast start and racing away!

I am getting myself ready for my first wedding fair in March and making some new figurines to bring me up to date with wedding dress styles etc.  I also have one in April which will be only 3 days after coming back from a much needed holiday in Lanzarote, and for the first time we are actually going for two whole weeks!!!

So everything has to be done and dusted and ready to just pick up and pack into the car when I get back, but with having the one in March that will give me a head start - just need to remember to pack it all away neat and tidy in readiness.

I shall also be trying to get a few samples of birthday and christening cake toppers and maybe even do those so I can sell on day.  If I'm lucky enough to get a buyer that is!

So its back to the drawing board/craft table and busy, busy, busy!
