I had a list, now I have a folder. Lol!
I just put them in a folder of what the picture is, but, when you go back to see who's designs, even the zipped file and instructions do not have names, it makes it very hard to get the digitizer, so I will have to try all your ideas...wendy
I don't separate free from bought. I buy what I like and I only get free ones if I like them. I file them by name such as type of flower, baby, dragons, owls, etc. When I try them and they don't stitch well or whatever, I delete them. Why do you separate them by free or purchased?
I save all my purchase emails in a folder on my email and when I download I always put them in the folder of the company I purchased them from. Also keep my Paypal emails as well. Very handy to look back for receipts etc.and as they are saved in my email folder they will always be there. Sometimes I can't remember where I purchased a certain design from so have to look back at the emails to remind me . Comes in handy sometimes. Hope this helps Lyn
Well, I am not as organized as some of these Cuties below to keep a spread sheet...I do keep all of the ones I have purchased filed in a master folder named "Designer" and folders inside with the name of the site...and then I file again in my general designs folders with names like:
Flowers, Children, Lace, ITH, etc...but another way would be to add a special character like a dollar sign ($) when you name the folder along with the site name and design description...then you could search for the $ and all of your purchased designs would come up...or search $ then the site name to isolate just the purchased designs from that site...
I hadn't thought of adding $ sign to the name. Definitely a quick and easy solution
The $ sign sounds good. I have only just finished doing my spread sheet. Keeping it up will be the challenge.
I like your idea of the $ that would make thing easier to find..
I have mine in a folder called 'Bought' and file them under the name of the site I purchased them. I also have them in a spread sheet. Just have to make sure I enter them before filing them away. This works for me as I can keep track of who I have purchased from and what the designs are. Hugs Shirley
This is what I am thinking too
I keep my bought designs in a folder named for the site, also in separate folders such as FSL, Flowers, Fairies etc with the site name after design name eg Continuiosline Fairies- KreativeKiwi. Also write them down in a note book so I can check at a glance if I have it to save duplicating orders. It does take a bit of organizing but is worth it. Marian
yes I definitely don't want to be caught out buying the same design twice
Gosh I never thought to separate the bought from the free dont take many free designs these days but do have them in order of fsl, applique, flowers then under flowers separated under types roses daisies etc
I do exactly the same Carol. Works for me
I have a Stickdatei - order tree . This works very well . Flowers , Animals , Easter , and and
