About Nancy Smyth, The YarnyBookkeeper

Hi, I'm Nancy. Yarn addict, career bookkeeper, and handmade business owner. I get the same feeling of joy when working with yummy yarns as I do when working with a column of numbers that all add up correctly. Bookkeeping for your handmade or creative business doesn't need to be scary. I can help you learn to handle your bookkeeping and other behind the scenes STUFF with confidence!


  1. Thank you for this… I will keep this in mind for when I more seriously start working on starting something of my own.. Pinning it for reference too

  2. Well, this is certainly something to think about, as I am hoping to turn my creative projects (notecards, etc.) into a little business!

  3. I agree if your a business owner you need a separate bank account and never borrow money for it for anything. Even though it might be easy at times especially if your out of money in your personal account and there is something you want to do or that needs paid. Bl

  4. Great advice especially for new handmade business owners. It still goes along with inspiring them to do things the right way.

  5. Hmm. You know, I had a thought about this the other day when someone hired me to do their color analysis. I thought again, “should I put this in another account?” But at the time, I decided it wasn’t worth the hassle. Now, you’ve inspired me to think again! I like the idea of separating purchases for my biz from other ones. Thx!
