I'm all about organization!! But when I'm creating my room looks like a disaster!! I find my best ideas come from the chaos!! Anyone else a disaster scrapper?

I'm a little bit of a disaster scrapper... but I always clean up after EVERY project, even if I am getting into another one right afterwards.

As long as I have my trimmer within reach and not hidden, my ATG right beside me and my photos, I am all set. The rest may look like chaos to some people, but it's not for me! In my head, I know where everything is!

My biggest problem (I figured this out at the retreat I recently went to) was I don't have an efficient way to store 12 X 12 paper so I can see it all in a quick glance. =/

I could probably win the prize for the messiest scrapper. ( I guess that's not a good thing, but...it's true). I'll be sitting and never move, and I can't find my tape runner, or even my trimmer. I really need to be more organized when I scrap.

I'm normally VERY organized with everything. But when I start scrapping, chaos reigns. I am a mess... papers everywhere, embellies all over the place. I think I'm going to start with one paper, then I change my mind. I don't put that paper back because I might still use it, and before I know it I have several sheets of paper, stickers, flowers, etc all over the place. I force myself to clean up periodically, but I've given up on "keeping it clean" because to me, when inspiration finally hits, I don't want to lose it while I go put something away.

I am constantly organizing and cleaning before I scrap, and after, but my desk is crazy when I scrap though. I work better with chaos as I am creating.

I don't mind the chaos while I am working on a project, but as soon as it is finished, I have to clean my work area. Everything goes back in its place so I can find it all when I'm ready to start a new project.

When it gets to the point where I am frustrated and I can 't find anything then I start cleaning.I do seem to get creative in Chaos.

to say the least, some of my layouts come from me setting something down looking for something else and liking that better. although its great to be able to find what you are looking for, its more fun to accidentally find a good layout or project.

I make a mess when I am making a page. I clean up when I am finished creating.

I'm another who is normally anally organised (except right now because we've just moved house and everything is in a mess and I HATE it), but when I'm scrapping I seem to manage to cover every horizontal surface within arm's reach. {scratches head in wonder}

I try to clean after I finish a project...but the trouble is I always have several projects going at once which means several messes to dig through. I usually only have enough clean surface space on my desk to fit a 12x12 page

I have a couple projects going also. I keep walking past my craft room knowing I need to get my chaos organized but I'm just not wanting to! It's my only messy thing I do.... Everything else about me is organized and clean.

I scrap at the kitchen table so I have to clean up every day before dinnertime!

I really love organizing though, so it's not that bad.
