Hands up if you've ever lost track of some of your business expenses, forgotten to send an invoice, or had to pay interest or a penalty because you made an error on your source deductions or didn't send your quarterly payment on time.

Here's us: 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

And here's a message Kat recently received from her sister:

Text message: "Gets taxes organized early/Thinks her shit is together/Owes a little money (expected)/Gets home and realizes we forgot almost $2500 in expenses... facepalm emoji"

In other words, it's totally normal to not be on top of everything with your bookkeeping and tax prep. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try! If you've got questions or are looking for tips on staying organized all through the year, drop by our live event tomorrow with bookkeeper Jayne Dykstra, who's here to save us all. And if you can't make it but you do have questions, hit reply and let us know – we'll add yours to the list.

Plus, keep an eye on the home page for our upcoming story that includes a downloadable expenses checklist to help you find all the writeoffs, and an interview with cross-stitch superstar Diana Watters on her latest kits.

Yours in making,

Co-founders Corinna vanGerwen and Kat Tancock
