I *just* redid my scrap space, but I have a couple of small things that are still left undone, so I guess I know what my goal is with those small things! LOL! I gotta go to the store today for some 3M strips!

We're doing a sb.com crop at my house. Can I take a picture of how four women can fill and overflow a dining room ? I cleaned my room yesterday

this is the perfect challenge for me today as I'm not able to scrap much today since I have visitors over (graduation party) but I do have a few hours before arrive so I'll tackle my messy scraproom before they arrive!

BJ - if you plan to crop with us most of the day, please take a pic during the "messiest" portion of your day and use that for your before ;-) Then take an after pic when you're all cleaned up for the night!

Also - for EVERYONE - let me just say that a "hot mess" is a very loose interpretation If you have so much as a section of floor that is covered , you can take a pic and submit that. I'm not going to be too harsh on this challenge! LOL!

Yes! Simply take a pic mid-crop when everything is at its messiest

Oh, wow, when I saw "scrap your hot mess," I came in here thinking I'd be scrapping my daughter. 'Cuz boy is SHE a hot mess! My scrap area is not, though.

My mantra for today (see how long) is "for every new thing rid get something else you NEVER use anymore away" & purge before I change my mind.
One reason I haven't been scrapping is cuz I can't even get organized & by then I give up!
Taking the "Get Organized" too!
One challenge is my new ScrapRack & "card" stamps-not that I've used them.

Two hours in and my living room certainly qualifies as a hot mess right now, lol. Pretty sure it'll get worse, tho, so I'll wait to take a pic

I just moved into my new scrapbook room so everything is still in boxes and I just finished painting the walls on Thursday. So I had a clean spot to work with. But in the end I have a huge mess from trying to find all my goodies.

I got my stuff hung up, which was the only thing that classified as a hot mess in here... I usually clean up between pages so it wasn't ever too messy in here. But I did post pictures of the before and after.

My "hot mess" incuded a shoe box of photos to organize.

Resisting the urge to scan photos that are in an album, but not yet scanned.

Moving all furniture out and back in, only to keep the same configuration as before. Dust bunnys gone, pens and ink pads rescued, stylus retired after it met the fate of kittens.

Looking forward to trying a few more challenges.

LOL!! I do this every time I scrap. I have a rolling craft table that folds down that I store in the bedroom - I roll it out and set it up. Then I pull out a nightstand-sized thingy where I store my Big Shot, trimmer, and a few other things, it lives under a table normallly. Go to the closet and pull out a trolley that holds most of my tools. And finally get my chair out of the closet, too.

And I have to put it all back at the end of the day. Apartment living sucks.

I never really get it entirely cleaned but I do tend to clean up between projects, even if it's the same day.

Have a few hours to go & know that it's not happening! BUT, I did manage to purge & part with lots of things, papers & all. Just to find room to actually do a layout I really need more time! To see my Hot Mess & have others see, too, is a step forward! Huge! I'm on the Organized Challenge though, & will actually sit down & do layout start to finish & that should REALLY make my eyes pop!! Bye, guys, it was fun!

I'm ready to share my shame... the 8 seater dining room table, china cabinet, most of the chairs and even the floor were covered with paper. The mess extended into the breakfast bar. Terrible, but it's all cleaned up now.

I haven't completely cleaned my work area EVER. This was the perfect challenge to guilt me into doing what I should have done all along. I just kept moving things over and piling them on the nearest flat spot. I even got all my different projects into their own boxes along with everything I needed to finish them. I hope my family doesn't get too used to this. . . .
