Odds and Ends

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day!  Last night we had a double date at our kitchen table with the ever-charming Bridget and Graham that included knock-off Chicken Bryan, candles, and 80s love songs on Pandora.  My birthday is a few days after Valentine’s Day so we usually just go out once to cover both days.  This weekend my best friend (whose birthday is a few days after mine) and I are being whisked away to Bloomington by our husbands to pretend like we’re 22 again.

I finally picked a blog to sponsor!  Head on over to In Honor of Design to check out my ad (it’s on the right sidebar) and read Anna’s great blog.  This is my first time designing an ad and I must have reworked it ten times.  Thanks to all the bobaloo! Facebook fans for helping me pick which product to include – I think you all made the right choice!

I’m inching closer to finally signing up for the wholesale fabric account.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to go with Westminster/Free Spirit because I love a lot of their designers (and how great is this new line?) and I know I can use a TON of their fabrics.  However, it’s probably going to take me ten years to pick which fabrics I want to buy.

I started using Outright for my accounting – anyone else use it?  So far it’s been pretty easy.  It automatically syncs with my Paypal account and categorizes my expenses, which is pretty nice.  I haven’t had any luck linking my business bank account, so I have to log all those expense by hand.  I set up all of my expense and income categories right after filing my taxes so that the different designations were fresh in my mind (like supplies, marketing expenses, etc).  I might post more about it later, so let me know if you want more info.

Last but not least, I’m feeling like it’s time for a giveaway here.  What would you guys like to get your hands on?  A crafty book? Fabric? Something from my Etsy store?  Cast your vote in the comments and help me decide!
