These are reviews of shareware programs for IBM and compatible computers. With nearly three weeks of shopping-frenzy left, here is a collection of shareware programs that will make your life a bit less frenetic.
Label Magic. With this creative program your labels can be as distinctive as you are. If you can't find a graphic that suits you, simply create your own. Best suited for cards and gifts this time of year, if you decide to register for $25, you'll be able to use Label Magic for your personal stationery or for business. You can preview your labels on your monitor, and you can print them on a variety of dot matrix, laser or DeskJet printers. Look for Version 3.0 or higher on bulletin boards.

Sue's Ornament Master. In addition to tracking details about your ornaments, such as when you bought them and how much they're worth, this program will help you maintain your lists for cards, parties and gifts. You're allowed a note for each entry that includes names and addresses for cards. For gifts, you enter the name, gift idea and store where you're going to buy the gift. For the party list, you enter name and address and notes about the individual, such as "hates eggnog." Registration is $12.50 from Joey Robichou, Box 91016-199, Baton Rouge, La. 70801.
