That in the last 2 days I've unearthed 10 stamp sets on one table that I have never used or even opened. Some were bought back in July!

Anyone care to make a confession?

Mine is pretty trashed right now. I don't know how I am going to get through project life if the first 2 weeks have destroyed my room.

That I keep losing my paper cutter 5 minutes after I have used it. I seriously have to step back from the desk and scan from one end of it to the other.

My desk and floor are messy from working on PL.
I always seem to loose that certain color washi tape or 1 of the 5 packages of Elle Studio calendars. So frustrating, but then again, I am scrapping.YAY

Mine's a disaster right now, but we're down south for a few months, so it'll stay that way till I get back north and totally re-vamp the entire room. At least that's my intention, to empty it and start all over and reorganize.

LOL, I had a scrap room (large) for 12 years THEN life change and now I have moved 5 times in 3 years and now I have a desk and part usage of an expedite BUT the good thing is one wall is unfinished with 2x4's exposed and I can nail anything anywhere without worrying about how it looks but how functional it is, LOVE IT.

Over the door clear shoe thingie on the wall along with old Cropper Hopper punch holder, trimmer hung from wall, washi hung from wall, corner rounders in small wire basket hung from wall, still unpacking and wall hanging so I am sure there will be more wall hangings, LOL

Mine's not messy...but I do constantly find supplies I forgot I had. Just the other day, after completing three layouts about my SCUBA vacation, I found a file folder with embellishments I purchased for that purpose last fall! Oh, well...good thing I still have tons of photos from that vacation to scrap.

I'm always trying to clean up my room.

I was watching a youtube video and they were using a stamp/die set that was just too cute. So after watching the video I knew I needed that set. I hunted down the set on line and FINALLY found it. I ordered it and it arrived a week later. I was SO excited.

As I was deciding where to put it, I discovered a box under my table. Guess what was in the box...THAT SAME DIE SET. I am such a dork. The set was $24.99 plus shipping. YIKES

So now I have 2 sets that I have not even used. This was last month.

Not only is my craft room a disaster, from working on 3 Dec. daily's, but so is my dining table.
Every Friday I hold scrapbooking night.
If more then one person comes, my craft room is really small, we have to move it up to my dining room.
Well more then one person came, so I had to work in my dining room.

I didn't feel like moving it all downstairs to my craft room, so it is still upstairs and I am slowly working on them.

I'm in the process of cleaning my room right now... BUT: it is so messy that I've been opening and unpacking boxes that haven't been opened since we moved into this house 2 1/2 years ago! (apparently I didn't really need the stuff inside them, lol!)

Mine is really bad! I have tons of stamps that haven't been inked. I seriously need to organize... But we're moving my room into my master bedroom retreat in the next few weeks so I'll use that excuse to purge. Haha

Mine kinda looks like an episode of Hoarders. Not kidding. And I'm dealing with tendonitis in my elbow and can't really get working to clean it up. (Grasping anything shoots pain through my elbow. And I can't use my other hand because I only have one.)I would give anything to be naturally neat, tidy and organized.

Mine also looks like a Hoarders episode. Seriously, it has never, ever been this bad. I cannot see any open spaces on any flat surfaces. I was panicing because I couldn't find the Bose remote. I thought it got thrown out somehow.

We have company coming on Friday. So, I have the regular cleaning, the company is coming cleaning and the craft room cleaning to do by noon on Friday! Of course, this is the week DH has jury duty, we have a night class (that I have rescheduled twice) and some volunteer obligations.

I hope that I get to sleep a little between now and then.

My room is so messy that I sometimes give up trying to find the supply/tool that I know that I have *somewhere* and just go and buy a new one. Just like those people who don't want to do laundry, so they just keep buying new underwear

my room is organized chaos. Wish I'd just take the time to get it organized, but I doubt that will ever happen. On the bright side, I can always find my stuff in my piles and piles

I would be thrilled if that happened! Now you get to play with new stuff!

I'm a messy crafter too. Yet, I have a total of 15 ft. of counterspace to work on, and it's all covered. But I also can rifle through a pile a mile high, stack full of paper etc... and find exactly what I'm looking for, in like, .02 seconds. I have that unique talent.

I'm usually organized, but since the holidays it been a disaster with boxes, wrapping stuff and my all my unfinished projects covering every surface. So last week I didn't have anything to do and cleaned it up. In the process I found the lost "binkie" my daughter had hidden under a pile of decorative scissors since December. She was one happy baby with a binkie in her mouth and the other in her hand like she won a trophy of some sort.

Mine is not so messy right now, but.....

over Christmas break I spent some extensive cleaning time unearthing lots of things! I found paper pads, stamp sets, and other embellies that I had forgotten even purchasing.

The WORST part of it is....

I had not scrapbooked for months. That meant that when I was given something or one of my children used supplies, things just got stacked on top of other things. I kept telling myself, "I really should clean up so I can actually scrapbook," but life kept interfering and the pile kept growing.

I am glad that I DID finally take the time to clean up. Now I'm actually trying to get a page or two done.

I think I'm going to have to plead the fifth on mine right now too. When i care more about projects than organizing, as I have all this month, it gets that way. When I am blase' about scrapbooking alltogether, but still take stuff out so I can work on my art journal, as happened last month, it gets that way. So it's had six weeks or so now of getting that way.

Mine is creative chaos! No really, it's so bad I can't even scrap in there anymore. I just got an Expedit this weekend and am in the process of moving to a bigger room which I have to paint first.

I'm so looking forward to a reorganisation! (It's workably messy at the moment.) But first I have a vacation and then I need to move house. No point doing a big reorganisation now when everything needs to be packed up in a couple months anyway.

I spent this past weekend cleaning up and organizing and was quite surprised and some of my finds! It was like discovering some precious objects to scrap with, and I must admit that some of it I wasn't even sure when I purchased it or what I thought I'd do with it... But I'm sure I'll find something awesome to scrapbook and use it with.

My room was so messy, that while decluttering last week I found supplies from about 5 years ago that I'd forgotten I had. Probably a good thing though because I am new to scrapping so now all these items have new meaning to me! It's amazing how a change in crafts makes you look at things completely differently!
