Determined not to get lazy...

Now that I'm done w/ my yearly hell of bookkeeping catchup and compiling tax totals..I'm determined to stay focused and not get lazy..

(my fat cat Crash in the laundry room)

Sure I said the same thing last year and the year before..but I think I've tortured myself enough to mean it this time. This year wasn't really fair though, with Cameron getting so ill it really left me devastated and nothing else really mattered other then taking care of him and trying to find out what could heal him.

And well we did spend a LOT of time puzzling!

Here are some finished products!

This one was donated to Cameron by Maui's woman's Harley Davidson club. Dallas, the president answer a craigs list request for cheap puzzles I could purchase to keep my sick kiddo busy. The guys loved it but it was a freaking nightmare! It was so hard! I've done hard puzzles but this one took us a couple of months. We had to take a break after cuz we were so fried. We've only done a couple tiny ones since like the done in 1/2 hour kind like the froggy below.

I'm half way there!

Whoaaa and I'm livin' on a prayer! haha..couldn't resist!

I am finally done w/ all the bookkeeping and tax stuff for Offshore Window's the pile..all data entered, organized and totaled up. Doesn't look so scary now that I got it all under control.

So now it's on to conquer the next jewelry business. It's not set up in my Quickbooks program yet so while it's not as much paper's more confusing. Can't wait till I'm done!!!!!

My yearly disappearing act..

Every year around this time I disappear from my blog for a bit. It's tax time and I'm busy pulling all my info together for both my jewelry biz and my hubby's auto customizing biz. And every year I explain how I spent too much time playing with my wonderful beads and not enough time keeping track of receipts and stuff so when tax season comes I'm up a creek!

Well this year is no different only in that it's probably even worse because Cameron got sick in April and we've been dealing with that all year. My mind was even less in the mood to do any serious bookkeeping.

So here I sit a slave to quickbooks and in waist high pile of receipts. Hopefully I will make it out alive and see you all on the other side!
