If you’re like most business owners, you understand the importance of good bookkeeping and the crucial role that it plays in making sure that your business is being run as efficiently as possible, but you probably don’t get excited about devoting more than 45 seconds of time and energy to the bookkeeping effort.
We’re here to make it easy.
With 16 years of bookkeeping experience, Abbi Tenaglia is prepared to help you as little or as much as you need. If you just need a little bit of guidance and coaching, she can do that. Or if you need someone to completely manage the process for you so that you don’t have to think about it at all, she can do that too.
In addition to QuickBooks, she’s also well-versed in PayPal, Square, 17 Hats, Amazon seller back office, Stripe, E-giving and LulaRoe back office.
– QuickBooks set up, training and ongoing support
– Bank and credit card reconciliation monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly
– Sales tax management & reporting
– Payroll services and tax management
– Nonprofit start-up registration with state and federal entities, tax filings, and donor reporting
– Year-end management and reporting, including 1099 e-filing
– Accounts payable and accounts receivable management, weekly or monthly
– Notary services
CPA Liaison Service:
Bookkeeping hourly rates are typically much less than hourly rates for a CPA. For this reason, clients often find it beneficial to engage Abbi to do most of the legwork for their tax preparation at the end of the year, then hire a CPA for an hour to check over the documents and e-file the tax return. This proves to be much more cost effective for the business owner than paying a CPA for several hours of work, and much more efficient than hiring an employee to manage the books all year. It’s a way to cut costs without taking on huge headaches.
Non-Profit Consulting Service:
There are so many needs in our community, and many community members have some fascinating ideas for addressing these needs. But it’s important for nonprofits to know the laws and to ensure proper management of the funds entrusted to them by donors. Abbi started and ran her own nonprofit for seven years before eventually merging with a larger organization. She’s been hired as a consultant by several nonprofits to share her knowledge in the realm of nonprofit management.

Welcome to Mary’s Floral: a unique place to get your home decor and gift needs. My name is Mary Munnings and I have been designing for over 35 years. I enjoy working with natural materials, cotton stems (bolls) and finding creative uses for found objects. My latest obsession is with cotton stems, nests and burlap. I just love the ‘farmhouse’ look. My designs incorporate many re-purposed items like glassware, frames and natural products. I create out of my home studio and my work can be found at http://www.marysfloral.net, Etsy.com/shop/Marysfloral, Facebook.com/Marysfloral1, and at many area craft shows throughout the year.
Look for my space at the up in coming new home décor store Our Moments in Time in Holly Springs; a great place that showcases local artists.
I began sewing in 1997 making quilts for myself and as gifts. My sewing projects have evolved after having children, wanting to make them quality items that I know would last. I have gradually added embroidery to my repertoire, and I love personalizing projects.
- I started by sewing children’s products as I loved the idea of giving a handmade, personal gift. I like to encourage imaginative play for children with my super hero capes for girls or boys. Let your child pretend to be their favorite super hero or have them design their own super hero so they can run around the house or outside while using their imagination.
- My youngest son loved to look out the window but he could never quite see out. I decided to make him a pillow that he could use as stool to look out of the windows. He started to carry it around the house and uses it as a comfortable place to lay his head while reading.
- With the passing of my mother-in-law I added another aspect to my sewing, memory pillows. I wanted something around the house that my boys could remember their grandma by. I can create these pillows using any clothing item that is memorable for you, and I can add your loved ones name or a saying to the pillow as well.
- For Christmas in 2014, my husband gave me an embroidery machine. I can now add embroidery to towels, shirts, baskets, bags, and pillows. I enjoy giving teachers and friends personalized ornaments during the holidays.
- Do you have a pile of T- shirts, jerseys, sweatshirts or baby clothes that you like, but don’t know what to do with them? T-Shirt quilts are a great way to keep memories in one place. These quilts can be made from sorority, fraternity, race and favorite shirts or even baby clothes.
Luggage Tags, Bag Tags
- When traveling, I have always had a hard time finding my luggage. All those black bags look the same. I decided to make my own! These bag tags can be embroidered with 1 initial or all 3 initials. They also make a great addition to your child’s book bag so they can find theirs at school!
If you have any other sewing projects, I would love to help you out. I love starting new projects to help you customize a gift for family or friends.

Hi! My name is Amanda Sulyi and I’m a northerner who transplanted to the south. I lived in Ohio for 25 years, and then moved to Raleigh, NC where I have been for the last 16 years. I am married and the proud mom of almost 10 year old twins, and a 4 year old giant yellow lab.
I started this hobby of making jewelry as something to do while I watched sports on TV. I love watching sports of all kinds, it is a big part of my life. My shop name acutally comes from the nickname of one of my favorite athletes, who is a race car driver. I had made several pieces of jewelry for friends as gifts and they always had told me that I needed to sell what I made. In 2014, my New Year’s resolution was to start an Etsy shop. I followed through on that resolution and here I am. My work is ever evolving, when I get a new idea and go for it…..and I love the outcome.
I truly enjoy it when someone purchase one of my pieces as a gift for a friend or loved one. I believe handmade gifts are the best, because it comes from the heart and there is intention and thought behind such a special gift.
I hope you enjoy what you see…..if you are looking for something in particular, send me a convo and I’d be happy to make something just for you! 🙂
I love making fun and colorful creations that become a part of people’s everyday lives and special memories. In my shop, you’ll find handmade mobiles, nursery and children’s decor, and more.
I have two great kids who keep me busy – as I create new designs that make me feel happy, I am reminded of the things I treasure most.
