I know...all of you at sb-central, just want some new people to laugh at on Hoarders, don't you? Or you're planning to start your own show called The Messers. Let me go find a maid service so I can show my Before picture :>) ~Judy

Any photos posted in here are from VERY BRAVE people who are working on Scrapbook.com's Get Organized Challenge. No judgement comments, just encouragement, please.

LOL Judy! I'm not into reality TV shows because I have my own thing going at home...

I've never actually seen any of the shows, mainly because I don't get them on our cable...and I don't want to chance seeing myself on TV. I don't need to judge anyone else's mess, er, beautifully organized scrap space, since mine is a complete disaster...but I'll take some pics before I do a little clean-up. I amaze myself at how much of a mess I can make to do a project or two!~Judy

Sounds like you get totally into the "zone" when you do projects. I have a friend who starts creating at her cleaned off table and within a few hours is working off of her LAP because there's no more room on the table. She produces amazing pieces of art from that lap, and cleans up afterward--so much so that it looks like she was never there.

Eeesh... I already knew my scrap "area" was bad... but it is bad on a WHOLE 'nother level when seen through the lense of a camera. Yikes. I might have to clean up a bit and then take another set of "before" pics. LOL!

Vae—I took my before pics, before cleaning up a space to work. I basically do like Jill's friend, except I don't really make "amazing pieces of art", but I have fun playing :>) Then I clean up as well as I can for the space I'm currently using...and then mess it all up again, so I'll use Really Messy Pics and Cleaned-Up Messy Pics for my LO~Judy

Here's one 'before'. I love this trolley (Ikea Raskog), it's stuffed full and mostly useful but needs refinement - i.e., the bag full of all sorts of different embellies on the second tier, I have to rifle through the entire thing just to remember what's there. The first tier has lots of stuff stacked on top of other stuff. And I just got a few more Distress Paints and Stains that need to be incorporated (with a goal to obtaining all of them)

That looks really handy for you, Kara. I know your problem on the top tier...those stickles, liquid pearls, etc. have a way of multiplying! They fit so perfectly...then they find friends and we keep pushing them in to fit, but eventually...there is NO more room. But if you're like me, that doesn't stop you from buying more :>) ~Judy

Alright... I've done some cleaning and here is my scrapspace at it's very best. This is after Option #2, Plan B (Clean Up). I took before before pictures but I think I'll be keeping those to myself LOL

Since I'm currently in a 1 BR apartment, it's far less than ideal. Descriptions are on each pic. Not sure how much we are supposed to post here?

I think its great your cart can fit in the closet and is easily accessible. I really like that the sides on the shelves help keep items from falling. Thanks for sharing.

Those are some nice organizational pieces in your photos Vae, and an admirable use of the space you have. Thank you for sharing.

I've just loaded my Before pics into my gallery ... there are more than a few so I put them into ONE project

I should've combined them like Vae did! Great idea!!

Well, after seeing Tanya and Denise's pics, I'm starting to get worried about my grade in this class. I hope we're not going to be graded on a curve! LOL Fabulous rooms ladies!

OMG! So the pictures I see here as the before pics are way cleaner than my area even when it is "clean". LOL!

Maybe this will make you feel better Dian!

Before:
Rosey's scrap corner - before By RedSquirrel

I must explain that my scrap area is shared with the study, music, DH's computers, sewing, cameras and the treatment area. Other than the desk and the wall shelves, I only have the bottom shelf of the bookcase for my scrapping stuff.

The desk here is unusually covered with post-birthday, pre-crop mess. More usually it looks like this:

I did minimal (15 minutes or less) clean up this morning in case of visitors, then started getting things out for a layout this afternoon.

The room is about 10x12 plus the closet with the file cabinet as the only non crafting exclusive item in the room.

Yes the room is yellow just not as yellow as the photo taken directed towards the window.

Love the paint color you have in your studio rocksmom. And your wire shelves are a versatile plus.

Redsquirrel and Rosie have some cool organizing already going on; looked are your studios for several minutes each...:)

Thank you all for taking the time to share.
