1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Basic Accounting study guide necklace on: January 08, 2012 06:17:40 PM

So when I was studying for my final I made this necklace for one of the people in my study group. Those of you who have taken Basic Accounting may be able to interpret it without the breakdown (also please check my work please to make sure it is right). It actually helped me a lot because it helped me visualize the basics - once you have the basics down the class is so much easier. I posted the full translation so if anyone wanted to make it for a friend without having to take the class yourself you can. Or if you are about to take the class this quarter - make one for yourself.
Here is the simple break-down:
The financials in the order you prepare them: Income Statement (IS) (green bead), Statement of Owners Equity (SOE) (blue bead), Balance Sheet (BAL) (gold bead)
The Equation: Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity (Capital, Withdrawals, Revenue, Expenses)
I have a small green bead on the side (debit or credit) that is the normal balance for each account and a small red one for the other side. Then I have a colored bead to show which account is on which financial. At the end of the list of accounts I have CE closing entries signified by a red bead to show which accounts get closing entries. *
Then FIFO (first in first out) and LIFO (last in first out) and five colored beads so you can slide then in the right order to remind you how to do each method of inventory accounting.

*Full translation: (IS) Income Statement (green bead); (SOE) Statement of Owners Equity (blue bead); (BAL) Balance Sheet (gold bead); (A) Assets (small green bead on debit side the natural balance side for this account) (gold bead this account is on the balance sheet); (two silver beads) =; (L) Liabilities (small green bead on credit side / natural balance) (gold bead on balance sheet); (silver bead) +; (OE) Owners Equity which includes { (C) Capital (small green bead on credit side / natural balance) (blue bead on Statement of Owners Equity, gold bead on Balance Sheet, red bead gets a closing entry); (W) Withdrawals / Drawings (small green bead on debit side / natural balance) (blue bead on Statement of Owners Equity, red bead gets a closing entry); (R) Revenue / Sales / Fees Earned (small green bead on credit side / natural balance) (green bead on Income Statement, red bead gets a closing entry); (E) Expenses (small green bead on debit side / natural balance)(green bead on Income Statement, red bead gets a closing entry)} (CE) Closing Entry (red bead); (FIFO) First In First Out (red, gold, peach, green, blue beads) (LIFO) Last In First Out so to remember how to do it - if it is FIFO you think of it in this order red, gold, peach, green, blue, if it is LIFO you think of it in reverse (blue, green, peach, gold, red). Ta Da!

Also - the debit side is the left and the credit side is the right.

I just unpacked this and hung it up:

Hope you like it! I made it for my SO for x-mas a few years ago.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / WKRP "Turkey Drop" x-stitch on: December 17, 2010 04:18:25 PM
This is going to show my age, but Thanksgiving always makes me remember the WKRP in Cincinnati "Turkey Drop" episode and at least one if not more of my family say this at somepoint during Thanksgiving day, so this year I decided to commemorate it:

WKRP Thanksgiving by auntiem, on Flickr

Long story short - the hapless owner comes up with a promotion involving turkeys, the traffic copter and a store parking lot - that, as you can imagine, didn't turn out well. This episode ended with the "no actual turkeys were harmed during the filming of this episode" rider in typical 70's fashion.

For those of you who weren't in existance when WKRP aired - I just checked and Hulu has full episodes including this one and the "phone cops" one, but I can't find the drunk test episode (my favorite) - if anyone finds it please let me know. 
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / WWZ Sampler on: May 09, 2009 01:50:30 PM
I thought of this one after attending a Max Brooks lecture. I whipped thru it so it would be hanging over my mantle for Thanksgiving (yes, I know just getting around to posting it). I got to thinking what a grandma who went thru WWZ would make and came up with this sampler.
I altered a pattern that I found in the book Threads of Time - the original pattern is by Dayna Stedry. I truly hope she doesn't find offence at my alterations.
The alterations:
The colors are the same as the original pattern except the outer border - that I made green instead of blue to match our decor better.
The original quote was very sweet and said "A house is made from brick and stone / A home is made of love alone" which I changed to a Max Brooks edict "Go up the stairs / Destroy the stairs" (zombies can't climb).
I "destroyed" the stairs on the front and scattered the pieces and boarded up the downstairs windows. For extra security since we live in logging territory I also chopped down the trees so no logger zombies could get into the second story window.
The "flowers" in the original I left as is except in mine they are now zucchini flowers - so the people in the house can have a food source.
At the very last minute (as I was stitching the X no less) my SO suggested to put in WWZ instead which at first I thought looked awkward, but now really like.
The thing I like most about it is that it hangs looking sweet and homey over the fireplace and it is fun to see people slowly start to realize something is "off" with it , then "get it" and laugh.

I used 14 count oatmeal Aida. DMC floss.

Here it is:

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The day you say it out loud is the day you should quit on: March 01, 2009 05:42:24 PM
I say this phrase all the time in my head while I work. I've been known to laugh in client's faces, so the day isn't too far off that my brain to mouth filter will fail me completely and this phrase will leave my mouth. Let us just hope my boss isn't around when it happens.
I was inspired to create this piece when TheCraftyCat gave me a snowflake embelishment. I'd never used one before. I think it gives it that extra bit of pinache (sp?). I gave this to my sister for Xmas and only at the last minute remembered to take a photo - sorry for the homemade Bailey's induced photography.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swap items still in use / on display / getting compliments on: November 14, 2008 04:43:33 PM
I was looking around my house the other day to realize that a very large portion of my swap goodies are on display / in use. Many of them I use daily or are on display in the living room or craft room. Lots, if not all of the jewelry and purses are "in rotation". The t-shirts aren't on "heavy rotation" because I want to be careful with them and make sure they last - so those are only for "special occasions".
A few (out of many) examples, I got a t-shirt last year just in time to wear for Thanksgiving and I wear it semi-often, but I've resisted lately so it would be clean for Thanksgiving this year.
On Halloween I lent my zombie doll to a friend to hug while watching scary movies and she thought it was really cute.
I have a screen printed shirt over two years ago that I recently wore to an event and it got a ton of compliments.
Would people like to get messages nearly a year or more later that their item is in use and got a compliment or is that a little weird?
(I once got a message with a photo to show an item I had sent was still in use and that was awesome!)
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / If I knew what to call it maybe I could find a pattern on: November 06, 2008 11:27:00 AM
My search skills are failing me miserably. I thought the style was called Dutch work - nope ok, I'll try bluework - nope.
It is a cross stitch style - usually of little Dutch girls, windmills, tulips - you get the idea. It is done as a square with blue thread. Often you see them as bell pulls or as trivets.
I can find all kinds of cute patterns for little Dutch girls in embroidery, but not in cross stitch.
My great aunt used to make these (and the patterns got tossed according to my Mom) - is it a style most people don't do anymore?
Any help with either a better search word or resource for patterns would be greatly appreciated.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / craft for my meds / side effects swap on: September 08, 2008 03:02:27 PM
Kinda like a craft for my disease swap. Recently I've had to start taking meds - 4 different kinds (maybe up to 6 by the time we're done). So I've been researching the side effects for them and some are humerous to me - like your feet may be more cold than usual - since I have "ice feet" anyways how am I supposed to tell the difference?
I'm thinking - prettyfied pill boxes, cozies/carrying cases for equipment, a humerous t-shirt to wear to the doctor appointments, silly things to cheer you up from the drudgery of daily pill taking, lunch bag for the meds that you need to take with food, silly (or useful) items to help with the side effects.
And since meds aren't cheap maybe 2 mediums and 2 smalls and you can stash bust.
You wouldn't have to list your specific meds or medical issue of course - just the side effects you are having if you are or the dimentions of your equipment.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stitch marker swap - round 3(?) on: June 05, 2008 02:07:51 PM
Here's a link to the first one:
It was 12 markers and a "means of containment". It was really fun and the creativity of the containment units was fun to see in the gallery.
Anyone up for a nice light easy swap for summer?
I'd rather not organize this time (I'm a meany and make everyone be willing to ship international) but will act as back-up / co-organizer if someone wants the organize.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / afghans for Afghans baby hats on: May 29, 2008 03:57:08 PM
I've been knitting baby hats for the afghans for Afghanistan project. http://www.afghansforafghans.org/
AsphaltQueen generously sent me tons of lovely orange yarn - which ended up making 9 hats!

All the hats completed - the pink ones were already made before I found the info that they needed to be wool / animal fiber. Not pictured are the three hats I made before I read that they needed to have ear flaps too. *note to self* check instructions before knitting.

I have already gotten an email that they were received before the deadline. Thank-you so much AsphaltQueen - hope the hats look worthy of your generous gift!
