Well, my wonderful friends, I'm done.
I just finished cataloging my stamps. A daunting task, I assure you!
I have found that with my ever growing collection of stamps, it is hard to remember what I have. Which stamp sets have birthday greetings? Which ones have monkeys? Which ones have background textures?
So, my solution....
I set up a database for all my stamps in Bento. Yup, I typed them all into my ipad... Not only did I put in the brand and set/stamp names, I also added a column for key words. I've typed in what is on each stamp set so I now have a searchable database of all my stamps!
So, which ones have birthday greetings? Well, I have the choice of 13 different sets. Which ones have monkeys? I only have 3 monkeys to choose from. How about the background textures? Pick any one of 27 sets.
As I start using it, I may need to add more key words into the sets to narrow down the searches, but it's a starting point. And it only took me 7+ hours worth of hen pecking my ipad screen. =)
