Mine is a 10++ I have been toying with a rearrangement along with too many clearence purchases in bags all over the place.
I still feel like it is a good problem to have. I feel so blessed to have my own space and it is beautiful even when it is a mess!!

|Posted: 1/26/2013 5:37:29 PM|I'd say I'm at about a 9. I have to scrap on my dining table and it's currently covered in stuff that I've been trying to organize. Why I had to organize it is I couldn't work on my DD at all, and some of those pieces are only 3x4. Now I've gotten some items out on the desk in my nieces room, she's only here every so often now, and on top of the dog crate that is behind the dining table. I've also got 2 dining chairs pulled out with stuff on top.
Typing this out makes me feel like a slob!

|Posted: 1/26/2013 7:20:28 PM|7 1/2 - it's bad, but I can still see parts of my desk. I have a few half started projects that need to be finished or put away. I also have some major reorganization that needs to be done. I've been putting that off because we know it always gets worse before it get better
|Posted: 1/26/2013 7:42:06 PM|
I'd say about a 9. I have a couple piles I have to walk around to get to my chair, the table next to my table is piled sky high. The scrapping table has a layout buried somewhere under the crap that has accumulated on the top. The table behind where I scrap has several things on it, not too tall. Oh heck! who am I kidding, it's like a 16. I say that because I don't have an animal lost in there.

I am about a three or four. My room is clean and everything is put away in the main part of the room. The closet has two brown paper bags full of things that need to be put away. I have room in the closet, I just haven't found the right storage yet. I think this is the cleanest my scrapbook room has been in about four years. I recently moved from a large room to a small room with a closet and having a closet has made a huge difference.

It depends on which space you are looking at! I had to relocate my scrapping supplies to two different places and put my work table in the living room. My supply closet is about a 2, my paper drawers are a 2 but my table is about a 7. It is really hard to scrap with supplies located throughout the house. I bring things from the closet down the hall to the table but I keep "forgetting" the return trip when I am done with them!

A 5 tonight - I only have to put the new purchases away. But it's usually a 9.5 with piles of stuff everywhere. I pull tons of stuff out for nearly every page, and only clean up when an entire album is done.

Sorry mine is clean.
|Posted: 1/27/2013 6:06:15 AM|Mine is probably a 1.5 right now. I've just spent the last two weeks doing a reorganization of all my embellishments, and I wouldn't' let myself scrap until everything was put away. I still have a few things to find a home for, and I need to dust and vacuum, but then I will be good to go.
I just wish it would stay at a 1.5 instead of looking like a scrapbook store exploded in there (which sadly from time to time

I think I should clean up today.

What are you looking at?
|Posted: 1/27/2013 9:08:13 AM|I would give myself a 1, but I have a small stack of alphas out that need to go back on my Clip-It-Up. Everything else is completely neat, clean, organized, and bigger categories are labeled with a label maker. The staples I keep on my desk - trimmer, scissors, adhesive, corner rounder, and ruler - are placed at right angles.
I know it's insane - but if there's any type of mess in my home, I can't concentrate on anything, and I really can't create if there's a mess about!
ETA: I put the alphas away, so now it's definitely a 1 !

|Posted: 1/27/2013 9:12:41 AM|I say mine is about a 3. Not bad considering most days it's a 9 but it could be cause I've been in the scrapbooking groove and have been cranking out layouts! When Ive lost my mojo that's when it seems like the mess starts to accumulate!!

I would rate it about 5, some stuff on the floor, but not covered and desk has room for a 1-page 12x12 layout, possibly 2 pages.
DH would say beyond 10. He despises clutter and things on the floor.
|Posted: 1/27/2013 10:47:26 AM|Oh I would have to say at least a 15. I can honestly say that right now there is not a 3" square space on my table open Yes I admit it. My room is a multi purpose room and it's just hopeless. This is the main reason that in the next few weeks, I will be moving into a smaller room where the only thing happening will be scrapping. Then my goal is to say my mess ranks at least a 3 = wish me luck.

I just keep reminding myself it's got to get worse before it gets better! And, in the end, I'll have a new (hopefully way more functional!) space!

I'm so glad that I'm among messy kindred spirits. I am probably about a 9. I started to purge some paper and there is a small path cleared on my craft room floor. But, some of my stuff has escaped to the adjacent rec room, so I still think I'm at the high end of messy. I'm just waiting until I have a week off in March to get some serious cleaning and organizing done!

Mine is about an 8 right now. I use the guest room / office for my scrapping supplies. I am in the middle of purging and organizing so there is stuff everywhere. ( I will be listing my "clip it up" soon, since I can't make it work on my desk anymore) But... this weekend I hauled everything onto the kitchen table and actually got three pages completed. So I am spreading my creative mess evenly throughout the house!

My work space is at a 1. I just went to a crop last week and spent an evening putting everything back in order. I do have 2 or 3 drawers I need to sort through which I'll put at a 4 since they are sorted in categories, I just need to decide on what I want to keep and what I want to give away.
|Posted: 1/29/2013 11:19:05 AM|Mine would be a 20.
I can't get into the room without stepping over stuff. Every surface is completely buried, the desk, the chair, the shelves, the floor. I can't clean anything without taking stuff out of the space to get to where I can reach where it needs to go. I am going out of my mind. The kids and I did lots of crafting the last two months, but no one has put anything away.
It is on my to-do list for this weekend, as well as hopefully a little more crafting.
At least the rest of the house is fairly clean, I'd say a 3.

10. And that is being conservative.
Me too, sadly. I can't find the top of my desk so I've set up a portable table in the living room so that I can actually scrap. I should be ashamed (but I'm not ). I am trying to make some decisions on reorganizing my space. I just wish my room didn't have to serve so many different purposes. I scrapbook and quilt, but I think supplies and equipment from these 2 hobbies I could handle fine. It's all of the home office stuff, the bookcase with all of the books (non craft related) and clothing overflow hanging in the craft room closet that put me over the top.
