We just got our new banner back from the printer and I am very happy with it. I can’t wait to see how it looks hanging in our booth next month at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival in Pittsburgh, PA.
We have been redesigning the labels too and the wood tools will have them now. The yarn inventory will need to be transitioned over to the new labels. As much as I would love to do it all at once for consistency, it doesn’t make sense economically. It would be a big waste to just toss thousands of the old labels not to mention time consuming to do it, and there is also the dye lot marking to contend with. Sigh. So my pretty new yarn labels will be a bit slower at making their public appearance.
I spent the last several days doing some year end business bookkeeping stuff and taxes. Yes, I have already done my federal income tax return. I finished that up this morning using TurboTax online and e-filed it. I am glad to have that behind me. Whew! It’s a big job, but I learned early on that keeping good, organized records really helps and is worth the time spent. I try to tackle my file of receipts and expenses at least once or twice a month. Keeping the job to small bits on a regular basis is my key to not being overwhelmed by it. What happens with me is that if I let a job get too big, I procrastinate about dealing with it, which of course just makes it snowball into a bigger and bigger pile which I avoid even more. See where this is going? I have to keep myself disciplined or I lose it.
I don’t have any knitting to share today. I have been working on finishing my socks which only have the last cuff to go. I may get them finished tonight or tomorrow.
