This is what I came up with:
I'm sure many of you have seen QR codes before, they are easy to generate and people often use them to link to websites from advertisements. Basically, the image stores information kind of like a barcode, which can be scanned using a smartphone camera.
Me being the nerdy person I am, decided that this would be an awesome method of tagging my handspun! So, if I quickly want to remind myself of the fiber content or yardage of a particular skein of handspun, all I have to do is quickly scan the code with my phone.
Some of you might be asking, why not just make cute little handwritten tags? To which I respond, this is way more fun and I like the neatness of having everything barcoded like this.
I've just started figuring out how I want the tags to look. If I like the system enough, I might also tag some stashed skeins for which I have lost the packaging. Also, next batch I print are going to be smaller. I'm also planning to use these to label my boxes when I move next month!
Do you have any awesome organization tools that you love?
Also, I wanted to thank all of you who kindly sympathized with me on the subject of part of Tuesday's post. To be honest, I'm still pretty shocked.
