Inventory Page

A couple of my blogger friends asked to see a better view of the inventory page. I tape in the images. It's a little down and dirty, but I like it as it's a quick visual of the pieces not just a number or title that is hard for me to remember. I enter each piece in a database program in addition to entering them into this book, so there is redundancy there.


I made the form in Quark and had the pages made into two sided copies, then I had the resulting book spiral bound at a copy center. It was about $15.00. A very worthwhile investment of time and money! Now I have one made every year or so, when I need one. Oh, each book has several blank pages in the back for notes, title ideas or whatever I might need them for. This is more of a ready reference that is not comprehensive in that it doesn't have purchasers info, framing cost and a few other details that I try to keep track of on each piece.

Thanks for sharing this info, Marla. This is exactly what I have been working on in recent days. Do you have your computer database in Quark, too, or do you use Excel?
