Snow Day

We woke up to a light dusting of snow and a little ice this morning which caused school closings and the morning off at work. I know you ladies living in the north and northwest think we are wimps if this caused closing but what can I say, you're right. Anyway, this gave me the perfect opportunity to start that ever dreaded INVENTORY. Since I have a "business" for my papercrafts I have to do yearly inventory for our taxes which I dread each year. I've not found that "perfect" system just yet. I've been working on my quickutz this morning. I love the new feature on their web page that allows you to inventory your dies. I always thought I had a lot of quickutz; I have the Squeeze, Revolution and Silhouette (a Christmas gift from my husband) and many dies/digitals to go with each one. After selecting all the dies, fonts, goosebumpz, etc I only have 127 of 1755 products listed, that's only 7%, I was shocked. I honestly thought I would be closer to 35 - 40%, I guess I don't have as much as I thought. I would love to hear from those of you who have to do inventory for taxes as well. Please share your techniques for tracking the "in and out" of inventory, your cost of supplies, tools, literature and such. Hopefully, we can all learn some tricks from each other. Well I had better get off of here and get back to inventory, on to PaperTreyInk stamps, stamp pads and cardstock.

Welcome to the blogging world, Beverly! Your blog looks very nice and I loved the story about schools closing with just a dusting! I'd love just a dusting here in NY! :) Yes, that's ME whining now! LOL!
