1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Help with Charging Tax at craft fairs and via PayPal on: August 05, 2008 09:33:06 PM
Hi folks. I got a bunch of "accounting" and "bookeeping" books from my local library. Hate keeping the books stuff, (jardon out the kazoo) but the best of the bunch was "Small Time Operator" by Bernard Kamoroff. The title says, "How to start your own small business, Keep your books, Pay your taxes, and Stay out of trouble". I'm telling ya it is great. I sent out a M.O. for it yesterday, I liked it that much. He, like, talks to regular people.  The publishing co. is Bell Springs. They have a form to print out or a person can buy online. 19 bucks plus 4$ sh/h. Not to bad for all the great information.  It even has ledgers and forms and what not at the back of the book. I really, really like this guy.  Roll Eyes

Welp, thought I'd pass it on.

May the force be with ya.

i sent in the application for my small business license last week and the ladies at the capitol city were super nice! the local tax people were a little on the annoyed side. i was giggling nervously as i asked her about the questions 'cause i was trying to keep up as she told me what to write! our state (WV) has no charge for the first time around and the license is for 2 yrs. it's $30.00 after that. i am glad but also scared. what if i fail?!!! lol. i think i'll be alright and hope i do good. i'm not the most creative person but practice makes perfect, they say. now i gotta figure out about my towns specs for a business. taxes. ugg! its like a never ending mud slide that your scared you'll never see the end of!!  Shocked

thanks for all the input and thoughts!

plain mabel your post helped me to feel brave enough to just go for it! a special thanks to you for cutting to the facts!  Smiley

e wrap is just the basic wrapping technic that is explained in the instructions that come with the KKs. It's called e wrap because it looks like the lower case cursive letter e.

thank you blue hare mom!

well dust bunny, i used your elastic idea for my bathroom curtains! it was that elastic cord which worked out great though it wasn't stretched out. i used 3 strands together, used cup hooks for the holders than slipped the loops at the ends of the elastic onto the hooks. i call this kooky craft. silly but fun!

thank you for the kicky idea!

yeah!! congrats to ya'! gosh, wool that is hard to come by. that sounds very painful!

so you like fine yarn. i kinda avoid it 'cause of my need for instant gratification. like with chunky. i knitted up a sweater coat with 3 strands of homespun which is already chunky as a single strand! really this i did because i kinda hate homespun and wanted to get rid of it fast!! Grin it turns to fuzz when the binding string comes loose or breaks. uugh... that is sooo annoying. ah well, someday i'll put pictures up of the stuff i've made. lazy bones, thats me.

yes sirree that is some pretty orange yarn you got there!!  Roll Eyes

I checked out Loom Knitters Circle and was wondering what EW is? guess it means E wrap but what is that? the link to their abbrev's is not working! could someone explain what they mean, please?

i've had some knifty's laying around for a couple of years and haven't used them too much but couldn't really part with 'em either. i keep reading about the cool stuff people make. i liked the headbands on the circle's web site. so cute. and i see you can make a regular knit or purl stitch by just putting the stitch back on the peg. i love it! i didn't really like how the older version of stitches came out. i'm kinda pumped about the knifty knitter now!

anyway, how is that E wrap done? thanks!

I have the provocraft pamphlets and they have very cute ideas but the pattern directions are not that good. If you are a pretty skilled pattern reader, or havea bit of patience then you should be fine. They are like 99 cents.
I also have a book that has pattern for long looms and round ones. I can not remember what the title is but it has a spiral binding.
ain't that book called, like, "the attic" or something?

oh man that is a bummer about your limited kool aid supply! maybe food coloring? a web site called knitty.com has a great page on dyeing with food coloring. just put "dyeing yarn" in the search option. don't care for neon, either, myself.

i checked out the pic of your "abused" yarn on the spinning board and i think its very nice. i'd make something out of it! hey you can give it to me! opps did i say that out loud! just kidding Cheesy! but, i really like orangey/red/yellowish colors. yours is a rich color and i also see that it came out kinda vargaited! lovely! makes me wanna get addicted to spinning and dyeing. but, i'm kinda scared of spinning. it seems hard!

a super job and, i think, super brave to just go for it like that!

thanks for sharing.
