I have to admit that getting everything together for taxes this year was a bit frustrating. Last year was my first year in business and I thought I was pretty together. However, I quickly realized that I was ok for last year because my little shop didn't do a ton of business but that there was no way that my system was going to cut it for the fabric shop. The volume of business is way different and I do not want to scramble to get organized with the kind of numbers that I am already dealing with!
Vanessa and I were chatting and she had been thinking about organization too. She mentioned getting a notebook and, of course, I thought about sewing! :) I had gotten this cute pattern from Virginia almost a year ago and hadn't done anything with it! Yes ladies, I realize that this statement comes out of my mouth A LOT!!! :) I have a huge pattern buying problem but I have a feeling that I am not alone! wink, wink
Anyway, the fire was lit and I was ready to get organized!! I went to staples and bought this binder. I wanted a smaller size so that I could easily put it in my bag or the car or even on my cutting table! I also got tabs and paper and a few more goodies to fit inside.
The pattern can be adjusted to fit any size binder or notebook and was easy! Seriously, I made it with kids in my sewing room, easy ladies! I think it looks way cuter than an ugly plastic binder and I love that I can close it!!
Here are some pics of the inside and of the back.
i made 2 full size pockets on the front and back
