How to make a spreadsheet for your pretties

I didn't dream that I would have requests for how to do this, but I did! (See "You might be a tablescaper if.." if you want to know what started it all.)


So here goes...


First, there are two ways you can do this: in a spreadsheet program or in a word processing program. They can be interchangeable. Because Word is the program you are likely to have, I am starting there. I will make a table in a Word document. It will work much like a spreadsheet.  I have made two short beginners' videos to help you. Turn up your volume. You can enlarge the videos to full screen by clicking on the icon at the lower right corner of each video.

  1. Wow! That is impressive!!!! Years ago I started an inventory but never kept up with it and it sure wasn't this detailed. I like how you track it. You've got me thinking, but it would take a week of my life to make the darn thing.PLEASE repost this for the "Where do you keep it all?" party in a few weeks.
