No, but I have just done Google searches looking for some...All you need are general categories.

I wish more people would make icons for categories, I love just having thie folders on my homescreen.

I've made I do the same...organizing my apps in category folders. I currently use...
Core or Home (the "main" apps that can't go on the dock...calendar, email, camera..)
Utilities (file explorer, back ups, battery monitor, etc)
Customize (custom clock widgets, beautiful weather...stuff that has an app for settings)
Tools (stuff that makes the phone and you productive. Dropbox, springpad, maps, QR scanners..)
Services (bank apps, travel apps, market, shopper)
News and Info (RSS reader, weather, wolfram..)
Leisure or Fun (yelp, urban spoon, netflix, imdb, youtube)
Connect (linked in, facebook, talk, various chat sites, ebuddy)

I almost always use an existing icon set that I downloaded, though it has to be a large one. I do also make my own icons.
Using any graphics program (Gimp, Photoshop, I use Illustrator), you can give them a background, title, etc. My current trend is to use Desktop Visualizer and make the folder icons 2x1, so they show up as special.

Posted some examples...the one labeled "various" has most of what you might be looking for. If you can't see it well, let me know. As you can see...I've been busy LOL

Hope that helps and gives you some ideas. If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.

Allow me to bump this thread...

I have applied an icon pack but they're not changing in Folder Organizer. I have tried many things, but no luck... Any suggestions?

Thank you
