What artists do when they're snowed in

If there is enough snow in our front yard to attempt a snowman, you can assume I've been indoors long enough to get desperate for something to do. Like...organizing supplies.
I catalogued all my oversized decorative and handmade papers. The Husband used to tell me just to snip little pieces off the paper, then tack them to the tubes so I'd know which papers were inside. But... I could've USED that snippet. [agonized wail]
Somewhere, I read about an excellent compromise: print photos of the paper, collect them on rings, then put each ring of photos on the corresponding tube.
A much more involved task than I thought -- I have like 14 tubes and carrying bags of paper. But it's done! Unfortunately, I was also snowed in long enough to have to do housework. Thank God for snow melt.
