Please pardon the long absence! Life has been crazy for the past couple of months. But, hopefully I will be back on target and updating my blog much more often.
I wanted to share a great program with you from the makers of Filemaker Pro. This is “Bento 4” – a great, easy, user-friendly database software for Mac. I downloaded it from the App store on my computer for the sale price of $29.99 (it is usually $49.99). It is going to be great for storing databases of my crafting supplies, books, recipes, you name it!
Below is the inventory form that I am using to organize and itemize my Close To My Heart My Acrylix stamps. This way I can see what each of the stamps looks like and tag it according to what is on it. Since Bento searches the text that I save on each form, I can easily find a stamp for “Happy Birthday” or “Thank You” or any shape that I tag for the stamp set. This particular stamp set – Card Word Puzzle – has a ton of sentiments on it along with some beautiful shapes. You can see the way that I have tagged it.
The list view is also a great, easy way to make edits to the data in your forms. You can easily see a large number of entries and edit them as needed.
I have had so much fun organizing with Bento. I now have all 110 of my My Acrylix stamp sets inventoried. You should definitely check it out – especially while it is on sale!
