I'm such a mess!

When I get creative, I work fast, grab supplies, use them, push the leftovers out of the way and grab something else to work with. What happens next is that I end up with my desk piled up with scraps of this and that and piles around me on the floor.

It's not a pretty sight!
I knew I had a crop coming up this month, so I took a day to clean up the bonus room where I scrap. I started with the floor and quickly cleaned up my "piles" and was able to sort them out and even get rid of some things. I was left with even bigger piles on my work table though!
Instead of just putting stuff away, I took the time to go through all of my storage. I sorted through every bin, drawer and kit bag. I cleaned out my scrap drawer. I organized everything and then was able to file everything away IN ITS PLACE!
Nice, huh?
At the end of the first day of the online crop, my work table was still clean. (Gasp!)
Last night, after a week on online cropping, 22 layouts and 7 cards, my area was still clean.
It's amazing how you can keep things organized if you just put things back in their place. Who would have thought???

I choose to never put anything away...

Ok, not really!
Love your pics, Amy. It is so fun for me to see other scrapbookers' spaces.

Great pictures! So fun to see where the scrap Queen scraps!! You would not want to see my space! I really don't ever put things away because I never have anyone over! Makes it easy on me :oP

Okay I'm glad I'm not the only one whose desk looks like that. With me though you have to throw in work stuff too.

It is so nice when you put things away isn't it? Glad you kept it clean through this last crop! Great job on the 22 LO's BTW Miss Queen!
