So, I dive in...and start taking pictures. Every single pattern is gonna now be inventoried and catalogued via the almighty digital god. I invite you to follow along as I get this all done. And trust me it is so super easy. I have finished the digital catalog already. Here are the steps I have comprised:
- Gather all commercially produced patterns to one central location. Even qued items until completion of the organization process.
- Have available a container bin, drawer, box, or file drawer for each pattern company to be sorted into.
- As you take the pics, use a stamp to place on the front of the envelope on or near the number. I used a smiley face stamp.
