--M. C. Escher
I love to experiment with anything new and different in the mixed media world; I have learned that what a absolutely needed one day, I have no idea what it is a few months down the road. To remedy this I now put the following things with items that I may question at a later date:
- Instructions that came with the item
- The cardboard packaging
- Any good information that I read about the product on a newsgroup
- The page from the catalog that I purchased the product from
|Backside of the Perfect Pearls package with instructions|
|My bottle of Paverpol has a baggy taped to it with a print-out from a newsgroup regarding the use of the product.|
|Sewing Machine Feet|
|I have the original card that was packaged with each foot|
There are times that when I need to reorder an item; the lesson I learned is that it is much easier if I know what I purchased previously and where the item was bought.
Again, I keep packaging or just note on the item the details of the purchase.
|For every embroidery thread that I own, I have the cut the original tag down to make sure I retain the name of the company and the color of the thread. I fold and tuck it in the edge of the card that the thread is on.|
|I know this picture is tough to see, but when I buy beads, I label where they were purchased, brand, color and size on the storage container.|
