Default How do you do it? With your favorites, I mean.

We are coming up on the end of the year and soon we will be posting the "Favorites of the Year" threads here in this forum. I know that the CAS favorites will be posted on Jan 1 so you all can share every single outstanding favorite for 2012.

So, that requires a bit of management of one's favorites folder. How do you do it?

Here's what I do.
...First thing is to view every card submitted. I then fave a bunch every day.
...Each week those faves are posted in the weekly favorites thread.
...Here's my secret to managing my favorites folder. Each month I go through the previous month's favorites and save the ones I still want to folders on my computer (and I delete from my faves folder here). Those folders on my computer are for YOUR work. I have a bunch of designers I seem to save a lot of, and all it takes is me saving 3 of your creations to have your own folder on my computer. That way if I case, I know whose work I am casing. I refuse to respond to how many folders that amounts to. I plead the fifth.
...So, by this time of year I have only 200-300 creations in my favorites folder. Today I'm going thru those and trimming that down to the few that I will post on Tuesday when I start the CAS Favorites of the year thread.
...Then all those are deleted here, and I start fresh on Jan 1!

How do YOU manage your favorites and select the "best of the best"?

I'll stand, my soul, Lord, to You surrendered,
all I am is Yours.
