Crumbs – seven years! Where does the time go?

For those of you that don’t know much about me or Zero-five let me enlighten you. As from April 6th Zero-five has been operating for 7 years. Yes, way back in 2005 I took the plunge to become self employed and thanks to my good fortune and even better clients I haven’t looked back!

On each anniversary I have produced a card that is sent out to clients, family and friends as a little ‘hurrah!’ and ‘thank you’. They always show a cake with some sort of reference to ‘traditional’ anniversary gifts based on the list printed on the back on the cards. The seventh anniversary is wool so I’m afraid I cheated a bit and bought some knitted cupcakes from a lovely lady on eBay. If I was to knit them myself I’m not sure I would be finished before my silver celebration!

For the cards I photographed the wooly cake with a 7 candle and then substituted the wick for a tied on piece of wool. I also sent out a few cupcakes in presentation cases with a miniature version of the card as a gift tag – as shown in the picture above.

If you check back to my blog on 10th June 2011 you can see the previous cards – or click here for some other pictures.

Next year according to my list is bronze. With the way postal charges are increasing the delivery alone could see me more brassic than bronze!
