All That's Left of Me...
That's it. The sad remains of this fiber loving woman after two days of taxes and accounting.
OK, Maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but number crunching brings it out in me. Honestly, it's more of a celebratory mood that brings me back to you after a 48 hour absence. I am finished!!!
This year I kind of brought the pain on myself. Getting my numbers together to pay my taxes didn't really take that long, but every year, I try to make Wind Rose Fiber Studio better. Part of that goal applies to how I run my business. I want to be the most organized, best run little studio I can be.
To achieve this, at least in part, I finally gave up my old school accounting and moved my 2010 numbers to nice spreadsheets on the computer. I made my own template and then spent most of my time transferring all of my info from Jan 1 to now. I'm itemized, all of my income and expenses are lined up neatly in rows with pretty little totals ready at the click of a button.
I know, I know. The likely and resounding response to this has to be "What took you so long?" I don't have a good excuse. I am kind of phobic when it comes to forms and little boxes, but I'm also a grown-up so I shouldn't be hiding behind my odd idiosyncrasies. I just have my own timetable for doing things, but don't we all?
