It’s the perennial questions, isn’t it? How do I file all this stuff???

I make the file name VERY long and VERY descriptive.  The words I use would take care of things which cannot be seen in the icons — so size, but not color (I can see the color is pea green when I’m looking for forest green. Or maybe I can just change the hue anyway, and it’s unimportant except to find all the Green stuff, for example.)   I use the folders and subfolders.  Then I use Windows search to find the files I need.

Green ribbon from Lab 6-6 would be turned into Green Ribbon even ends full length transparent nice.  The even ends are needed for making it into a circular element or a frame (using Carole’s scripts). Transparency isn’t seen in the icons. “Nice” is to let me know I consider it a success. :))

It gets filed under: Scrapbook –>Suzy –> Elements –> Ribbon –> Green Ribbon even ends full length transparent nice.  If there is one similar I made, it would be Scrapbook –>Suzy –> Elements –> Ribbon –> Green Ribbon even ends full length transparent nice 2 (and 3 and 4 and 5 as long as they are all fitting under the file name and one isn’t blue or non-transparent.)

This is not every one’s cup o tea, I might add. I have done this since the beginning, and I always answer questions like this in the forums, and not once has somebody said, “Hey, I do that , too!” or “Hey, that’s a great idea!”
