I was hoping to post a pic of the toppers below all finished and nice but I cant do that at the mo as I am currently at one of my relatives house using their comp and all my work is on my laptop. Unfortunately they havent got wireless broadband but Im going to see if I can get my laptop plugged in and then it will be all fine and dandy! Im really annoyed atually because I bought some tartan ribbon especially for a groom wearing a kilt and I have gone and left it somewhere grrrr.

I decided today I would offer my cake topping services on DaWanda as well as Etsy, after all you can never have too much exposure and that fact it is free to list items makes it even more appealing. Not sure how my toppers will get on over there but I will keep you posted. You can find my shop here.
Brand new site for everyone who wants to show off there crafts. There is currently a competition running over there where you can vote on the best craft and winner gets £25. I have my cow toppers on over there so if anyone would like to vote for me you can do that here
Here is some more work in progress, This one is for 2 girls tying the knot and they will also be having their dog on the topper. I will post complete pics when they are finished.

Im happy to say that yesterday I had my first Etsy sale. Someone purchased a pair of cake toppers from me. Everything went great until I realised I had spelt my name wrong, yes thats right people I misspelt my own name! in my email address that was attached to my Paypal account so my funds went flying through cyber space elsewhere. Luckily I managed to get it all sorted out, not without having a big panic first!

I am currently sitting upstairs on my mums bed while I type this. The gas man here trying to fix the pilot light on the boiler and as my work table is right in front of the boiler I am unable to work right now. Your probably wondering why I am at my mums house? (if not, tough Im going to tell you anyway ) My partner Dom, manages pubs so we have just moved from Wembley to Southend. Our new flat isn't vacant yet so all our furniture is currently in storage so Im up here, he's down there, I've got cake topper orders flying in thick and fast as well as other small commissions so its a bit of a pain at the mo. Hopefully it will all turn out good in the end!
Ooh gas man is leaving, back to work....

So much for for showing 'work in progress'! I managed to get these ones finished really quickly. Another sitting down couple, I really like how these have turned out. They are made from Fimo clay as usual. The flowers are mulberry paper flowers, I prefer using the mulberry ones as opposed to making them myself, I love the effect.
Now straight onto my next set, will post a couple of pics as I go.

I thought I would put up a pic on here on what I am working on at the mo. She is going to be a sitting down bride and her dress is gorgeous in the pic, I just hope I can do it justice.
Well I thought I would jump on the blogging band wagon! Mainly to show off my clay work really and to let everyone know what I have been up too.
Cake toppers are currently keeping me really busy with most people getting married in October. This coupled with moving house (again!) has left me no time to do anything else.
So here is a topper which I finished today. They are made from fimo for a couple who are farmers. They are also having a cow print cake so when they have sent me a pic from the wedding I will post that up here too.
