This week I finally went to my mom's to craft. The first project is complete, it is my step father's card. I will sign it and leave it here for my mom to give to him on father's day which is sunday.

So with the Covid pandemic, my mom hasn't done her taxes for 2019. Her tax accountant is the local senior citizen center but they weren't open for taxes this year. The first thing she says after I've unpacked is "daughter dear, will you please do our taxes for us?".

I haven't done taxes in many years but used to do them for myself and a few friends. I said yes and spent the next couple of hours entering the data in Turbotax for them.

Did you know if your taxable income is below a certain amount some online tax software is free to use and e-file? I was very pleased to stretch those rusty muscles. If you haven't done your taxes yet, check with the IRS (online) to see if you qualify for a free online tax service.

I always paid for tax software because of our businesses (Schedule C). Once we bought rental properties we started using a tax accountant because the taxes became very complicated. My parents have some retirement accounts, social security income and interest so it was easy peasy.

That concludes my public service message for the say and now let's get back to crafting. I used Snow Front for this nature scene, I love how you can make a scene winter-y, or summer-y by changing the colors. I used all new for this year products except the embossing folder and sentiment which carried over from last year's annual catalog.

I am still playing with the new Stampin' SEAL adhesive. It is quite a bit larger so feels substantial in my hand. I am working on the best way to finish my adhesive line without having the tape runner shift off to the side. Once I perfect my technique I will video it.

Next I am going to start on my Fourth of July cards.
