Death and Taxes...

Well, I am almost done with my taxes and it has only taken a month!  What a nightmare.  This year I vow to be better organized, and prepared when my dear husband starts after me for tax information.  I feel like I could use a trip to the eye doctor after this.  I am so tired of looking at spreadsheet after spreadsheet and running numbers.  Instead of Death and Taxes it should be Death OR Taxes...JK ;)

Seriously though, this ordeal has really opened my eyes to what we spend our money on and how much for that matter.  It has also forced me to open my shop and stay committed to not holding onto the fabrics that I love.  I am dedicated to adding inventory and premoting the shop on a daily basis.  As much as I love every single piece that I get, it is time to that this foster parent cut the cord :) 

If you are looking for a 100% online marketplace to sell your should check out  The only thing I recommend if you set up shop here is to keep track of your own inventory because that is the one thing that they lack.  I am all about the free shops.  Don't get me wrong, I love Etsy and Ebay but eCrater has an incredible google hit rate.  I opened the shop on Monday and my link already shows up on page 3 of Google and Bing.  Of course there are 30+ shops that will more than likely be hit before mine but I was truley impressed. 

If you find something you like in my shop, mention this post in a email to me and I will give you a 15% discount on your next purchase.

Happy Stitches Everyone :)
