A Helpful App!!

Ok so in my day job I work in the technology field, so I wanted pass on something that could help enhance ANYONEs life. It doesn't matter if you are a business owner, a stay at home mom, or a Student. So what in the world is Tiffany babbling about ok so here is the deal its an application for your Smartphone, tablet and laptops. The application is called Evernote its not a new app but just wanted to share how I use it in my jewelry business to help me stay a little more organized. You can download this app by going into your app market and downloading it (its FREE). Their logo is a green square with a elephant inside. Now onto what it does..... Evernote allows you to capture photos, voice recordings and text into a notebook. You can have multiple notebooks for me I have several here are just a few.


  • Bead Recipes- When I create a bead in glass or ceramic what colors I use and in which order makes a huge difference in the end result. Just like with glazes which Glaze you put on first will have a different out come. So I take a picture of the bead(s) (because I WILL forget what it looks like if it goes to a new home) then I type out what colors were used in the order I applied them. Make sense?
  • Jewelry Pieces- I take a picture then I write what size bead I used and anything such as where I purchased it from (you never know you might need to buy more) if there is a certain artist or manufacturer that I need to remember. If you want you could also refrence a price of the beads too.
  • Receipts- You could break this up into Wire, Fiber, Solder, Glass, Glaze etc. You just take a picture of the actual receipt so that when you are pricing things out you don't have papers every where.They are all in one place!!!
So I hope this gives you some idea, I did NOT get paid to write this. I just wanted to share how helpful this has been to me in keeping track of everything and still going green. There are many apps in the market that work similar I just find this one to be the best. Also I forgot to mention that when you set up the app it will ask for a username and password, this allows you to have multiple devices "synced" to the same content. Also if something happened to your device you can always just sign in with your info when you get another.

So if you have an questions please leave me a comment.
