Small time hobbyist here in Salem, OR. I've been flirting with fusing and coldwork for years, made some interesting things, but honestly spent more time reading about and buying glass/tools than actually working with it hands on. A goal for 2014 is to change that.
I'd estimate I have about 250 10x10s.
I have a fair amount of glass for a hobbyist, and this weekend kicked off my endeavor by diving into creating an inventory. Because, as I suspected, I will often buy glass because it appeals to me, and this is unrelated to whether I have it/need it or not. And, when I start a project, I don't really know what I HAVE. Nor could I find it.
I can't decide what's the best method for inventory. To start, I simply went to the back of the catalog and in the product listing, marked for each 10x10 or sig size scrap I had. I can't decide if I want/need to put this into a spreadsheet, or just leave it as is. I've organized the sheets in numerical order, so I can easily find something if I have it, or know I don't have any.
(In this endeavor, it was clearly evident I LOVE the gold purple transparent. I think I picked a piece of that up every time I set foot in Bullseye. I apparently am also drawn to the almond. LOL.)
Too bad Bullseye doesn't offer a download of their product listing in spreadsheet format. Does this exist and I've missed it? If it doesn't, it should!
Thanks for any thoughts.
