so to speak, anyway. i cut out and stamped new labels for my card catalog in bright happy colors that just happen to be my favorites (orange, red, green and yellow). i've been meaning to do this for some time. for those who might be curious, i keep art and sewing supplies in my card catalog. no, the bars do not get in the way. also, i got it a community college auction years ago. good luck finding one (that's aimed at those who ask everytime they see a photo of it! heh.)!
