Confessions from a Dirty Scrapbook Room

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

I thought I was organized UNTIL I took pictures. Now it is all becoming very clear to me why I cannot seem to get ANYTHING done in here. For starters, there isn't a clean surface in the room except for maybe on the top shelf and since I need a ladder to get up there, that doesn't seem like a practical place to create or work.
Apparently the cleaning fairy didn't come last night (or any night for a LONG time), so I'm going to have to do it.
Now, I have to say, last year (or was that two years ago?), I decluttered like crazy and gave 12 Priority Boxes of scrapbook supplies away, so I definitely don't have as much to do this time. This actually looks more like actual trash.
So here are the BEFORE pictures.

I think I found your Pazzles, is that it behind the red cloth saying "please rescue me." :)
And don't worry about the mess, it's just a sign of a busy scrapper. It could be like mine, neat and tidy, a sign that I haven't had much time to scrapbook or stamp since the beginning of the year...grand total this year, two pages. I'll send you my pics when I get time to scrap, your room will look spotless compared to mine.

My my my Klo!!! Hahaha a true scrapbooker at heart! :) I love it haha I think once you've figure out what's to keep and what's not, it'll be perfect again. I'd love to have a room of my own for scrapbooking alone ...

BTW, thanks so much for your help again at the expo for my new inspiration. I LOVE IT! wow i can't believe how much easier it is to work with at times and even what a patch was needed to be downloaded. Amazing!

Oh my .... does this look familiar! I usually end up working in a space that's maybe 12"x12". After I clean, it only takes about an hour for me to once again be reduced to that 12x12 work space. Although, I do have notebooks organized with disks, printouts of what's on each disk; my computer folders are all organized, etc., etc. A friend once called it "organized chaos"!

I LOVE it!
