I have just been reading the current paper organization thread and had to start laughing at myself.
Organization for me is a very fluid sort of thing.
The ultimate is to have all my pps in one spot and cardstock in another etc.
oh a big Artbin for scraps of cs.
I do keep some groups of pp (eg all of a G45 paper) together in large storage bags with the rest of the paper.

Please tell me that someone else out there is like this. I can't be the only one?
Can I?

No, you aren't the only one out there. I don't even have all my pp in one area! Isn't serious organization a form of OCD???

Most definitely.

A couple of weeks ago a while we were scrapping one of my friend mentioned my "a*al-ocity".
I cracked up - that is one thing I have never been accused of before.

Messy Mary is what I get called.
Or Ah-duh-duh

but not that or OCD or anything similar.

If I organize my junk, I can't find anything. But I do know where everything is in my mess.

actually, I find paper the easiest thing to organize ... it's all the other cr@p that is a pain to organize

I like to think of what I do as 'loose' organization - you know as in, the pack of wild dogs got loose and ran through here.

I'm pretty loose about organization LOL. I do have all my pp's in one place, organized loosely by theme (which means I have to look through thousands of pages to find ONE that has flowers on it in the "feminine" pile),,,,,,,,,but I DO have my plain cs in one place organized by ROYGBIV order and my pps in another place LOL

I actually enjoy orgainizing my scrap stuff. Its kind of relaxing and therepudic for me and I like being able to put my hand on anything I want.

At first I didn't organize it and when it wasn't organized, I wasn't using it.

For me organization is something I do ALL THE TIME...INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY SCRAPPING!!! LOL. "As soon as I get this cleaned up/reorganized I can get to work..." is what I've been telling myself for weeks!

I can actually use this as an excuse. My dogs' tails knock everything over. It really does looks like a pack of wild dogs ran through my house, probably because they did...

I do have my stash organized to a point I am comfortable with and which allows me to keep in touch with my goodies.
However I can't/don't keep everything color coded or subgrouped. My paints are with the paints and inks with the inks and journaling spots with journaling spots etc.

Since I have my new scrap area and have been able to spread out my storage it is much easier and I do find myself using things that I would have forgotten before.

I don't have things color coded or subgrouped either. My glitters are with the glitters, diestress inks with distress inks, etc.

We have a spare bedroom that is part scrap and part home office and anything out of place just looks like clutter so I have to be carefull to keep it organized and put things away or it looks bad.

Would love to close the garage in and make a huge office/scrap room out of it.

I had everything under control up until a couple of months ago when the UPS guy started leaving me packages of scrappy stuff on my doorstep.

I'm organized that has always been me. But when I'm in the middle of crafting it's a BIG mess!! My best projects seem to come from my biggest messes!!

I don't think it counts as a mess while your playing in it
