When do you do most of your crafting? Are you a morning scrapper or a night owl? Do you scrap like crazy while your kids are napping? Or do you scrap any time you can?

I'm mostly a day time scrapper, although I've been known to sneak into my craft room for a bit after dinner especially when I'm close to finishing a project and I'm excited to get it done.

I'm a daytime scrapper. I sneak in a few minutes here and there when the kiddos are occupied. I wish I could be an early morning scrapper but I can't seem to pry myself out of bed

I scrap when I can sneak in time. Wish I could have my own craftvspace and time.

I scrap everyday from 7:00-7:30 pm -- it is my "me" time after a long day teaching and hanging out with my kiddos. then on the weekends I try to get in about 2 hours. so for me not a lot of time

It varies. I get a bit done during the day here and there, and a bit done in the evenings after dinner. On rare occasion I'll be on a roll and stay up til the wee hours, but I'm usually sorry the next day!

Not really sure, since I've just come back to scrapping.. It seems at this point I'll get into it whenever I can.

I work during the day so I mostly scrap in the evenings and the weekend. I try to reserve a few hours on Saturdays. Love having creative time.

I seem to do my best work in the early morning to mid day. I am not a late night person!

Definitely a night owl!

Although lately nap time for my little man has been great now that the older two are in school!

During the day is when I try and scrap

I find I am just not able to concentrate in the evenings anymore.

I like to be creative in the morning (even though I rarely have time to get crafty then *lol*)

I normally scrap for about an hour after my son goes to bed each night But on the weekends, I scrap like crazy while he takes his 3 hour nap

Another night owl here! Too much going on during the day, I'd be doing more running up and down the stairs than I would be scrapping. Love Penny

I craft or scrap whenever I can grab a few minutes. Right now I just dont have the time for scheduled crafting. And, I'm just too tired to scrap all night like I used to

I mostly scrap during the days, but like Lisa said, if I have a project I am excited to finish, I will usually get to it after the boys are in bed!

I scrap a little when my youngest takes an afternoon nap (and everyone else is at work/school) then at night after the kids are in bed and hubby and I are watching TV.

Day scrapper for me! I have trouble seeing at night (watch the old jokes)and make more mistakes. I tend to wind down by 7pm at the latest. Good for nothin' after 9!

I'm a night person mostly and do most of my crafting and art making on the weekend! That's usually when hubs is home to watch the kids while I get stuff done for deadlines or go to a crop!

Mostly in the afternoon or evening for me. I'm not much of a morning person.

In the past I'm mostly a night-time scrapper, often late night. But when I'm home (not working or volunteering) I might scrap in the morning or anytime while watching tv as I scrap digitally, I just take my laptop wherever I am. Guess I'm an equal opportunity scrapper even though I don't necessarily scrap equally at all times. LOL

I scrap after the kids go to school and my housework is done. I also like to slip away for an hour or two on weekends when the kids are playing. Quite often, one or both of them will join me!
