Tikvah is a star

Lucky day! I submitted my Tikvah Doll to a magazine, and apparently she made the front cover.
I don't know which issue it will be, so let's leave the rest a surprise!
The editor was nice enough to send me an "extra" photo of her. I love professional photos, don't you? I am so excited...

Tikvah is a great doll and she has a great pattern. If you'd like to try your hand, grab a pattern in my Etsy Shop!

The Tax Man

Uncle Sam is interested in our craft businesses, yes, he is. And an interesting question just came up for me today. I took my sewing machine in for repair and maintenance this year, and the bill was over $250. Can I take a tax deduction for that ??? If so, I wonder how much of that amount Uncle Sam will let me have- and how it's calculated ???

The answer is... YES. And I can claim it all, regardless of the fact that the machine is already several years old. Thanks, Sam!
