Happy New Year Everyone! An ode to love…and peg people cake toppers!


Hello Everyone!  A very Happy New Year 2017 to you all! New Year is always a great time to make a fresh start – but of course, we can do that at any time – now that is good news!

As with any new start, we get a fresh sheet and we make plans, maybe we imagine how we’d like things to be and dream a little too…

I’ve been making lots of lists – daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, 6 monthly and yearly – it helps to have a plan and stick to it, and then be flexible too, as things may alter the plans and paths we made or hoped to tread, but maybe that is all part of life’s rich tapestry.

On my list for today was to finish my blog for you.  I’ve chosen to share something Butterfly Skies can create, but is perhaps lesser known…our custom made Peg People Cake Toppers!  Last year we went to 3 weddings and this year, we are looking forward to 1. Memories of our big day come flooding back – the happiest of days, including all the build up, the preparing and the creating and making.  The idea to introduce Peg People Cake Toppers to our product range was the unique, handmade, and vintage feel they create…Would you like to take a peek at the one’s I made for our wedding cake?! Here they are…

If you, or anyone you know is getting married this year and might be in a position to share some ideas for cakes and decoration – do consider Peg People Cake Toppers – they’re great fun, and can be made using the individual colour themes for each wedding.  Below, I’ve put a photo of some of the others I’ve made to date, just to give you an idea….

There’s just one more (unrelated thing) I’d like to share with you – a photo my Dad, Ron Gillham, painted in memory of our Rabbit Tia, who passed away in November 2016.  It’s so lovely I wanted to show you…we will surely treasure it:

Well, I think that’s it for now, but we’ll be in touch again soon to share some more news, some exciting new products and important ‘Order by’ dates for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day for Keepsake Jewellery and Raised Impressions.

Thank you for reading everyone.

Until next time,

Anna xx
