Hello friends! Sigh, yes we are coming upon that time that self-employed people dread...tax time! When I got a regular pay check, I looked forward to that sweet tax return, but now, Uncle Sam definitely wants a piece of me! I finished my taxes the other night, and everything in our living room was covered in receipts (which my cats loved). At the same time it feels good to see my business growing (and therefore more taxes owed, ha!), so I can't complain too much. ;) FYI, I use and highly recommend turbotax.com, they give me peace of mind and walk my biz through every possible deduction. It does cost $100 to file with the version I use, but it's worth it to me.
With that fun out of the way, I'm focusing on my upcoming show, the Renegade Craft Fair! Last year was its first year in Austin, and I couldn't wait to apply this year. I was so thrilled to be accepted! It also comes to Brooklyn, San Fransisco, Chicago, and London. How much would I love to do the one in London?! :)
As usual, I'm wishing I had a troop of painting elves to do my bidding. I listed some new skullies in my shop, 3 of the 4 have already sold, but this pink lady is looking for a home:
"Amor Amaranta (Unfading Love)" Sugar Skull Wall Hanging
I also brought back my custom dog signs:
and lastly, I added some more postcards!
