VC CHALLENGE #10 Pic Time

I hope its ok for me to post a challenge. :dontknow:
One of the things that consumes the most time while I scrap is the fact that I constantly "tidy up" while I work. I know I have shared my struggles with OCD, so I'm asking for your pics. No LO's for this challenge but I want to see 3-5 pictures as you work on a LO. Just show me your work space as you go. Don't straighten before you snap the pic, just show me your mess! Maybe you girls will rub off on me. ROFL

I know that digi scrappers may not have as big a mess as paper scrappers, but I've seen my DH work on the computer and he can really pile up some stuff too. So, there it is! I WANT TO SEE YOUR MESS!!!! I'll randomly draw a name and then pick a small treat for you (depending on paper or digi I guess). So get busy!

Ooh, just picked up most of my hybrid mess. While I digi scrap, most of the mess is from trying to take care of Andrea while I scrap, so I just picked that up while she naps, but it will happen again Wink and I'll get pictures!

I had Jordan take some pictures as I was working ... do I look tired to you? I look tired to me. Anyhow, I don't clean up from a layout until either I'm all done or until I need to start a new one (all depends on my time). Lol

Jordan left, so here are two more photos, one in progress, one at the end

You are going to need OCD meds after seeing my space. I posted it to show everyone that thinks I am so neat with my fixtures and things that when I am scrapbooking it's another story! Sure I pick it all up when I am ALL done and have to put it all back in it's place but I could NEVER clean while scrapping. You crack me up Kelly Smile

I forgot to snap photos while I was just working, but trust me I will. Wink I already put everything back after I was finished with that page. Yeah, Im' OCD after I'm finished, but when I'm scrapbooking it's a total mess.

This thread will cure you. Biggrin

Gwen, how come I didn't know you had such a big nice area to scrap?

Tia, love it! Lol

my area looks a lot like both of yours'.

Me either! I did just go to start another page and I had to clean it all up just to have some work space. So I just spent 15 min. cleaning the entire table just to mess it up again.

Charys, I told you I was a messy scrapper:D

And really, this is not too bad for me. I happened to be working on a layout that didn't use hardly any paper, so this is "good".

Breathe Kelly, breathe! Wink

Ok, so I'm different with being Digital, but I can still make a 'mess' (because I scrap too long and my house becomes a mess lol). I put my computer down on the kitchen table, then the mess piled up around it ...

Yes, my house is always that messy.

BTW - all my biggest loser teammates - the pepsi and cookies are not mine! lol I don't drink regular pop, only diet (I don't like the taste of regular, grew up with diet) and dh bought the cookies and apparently don't know where they go lol.

I am sooo embarrased to post these, but you did ask.

You all are WAY clean and organized compared to me:eek: Believe it or not, this is actually better than it normally is. I have actually started to organize. I just hung the shelf on the wall to get more space on the table.

Kelly- This may give you a heart attack, make sure someone is standing by with the phone in had;)


:eek::eek::eek:
And that is just the table area. I am NOT showing you the rest of the room!

Here's mine after doing one LO last night and this morning. My desk was completely clean when I started mostly cause I have two littles and they'd get into everything, but also cause I hate the mess. The LO I did was pretty simple, but still. I may be worse than you Kelly. Lol

Just because some of us digital scrap, doesn't mean we still don't make a mess! ROFL I've got proof of that! Just check out my disaster area!! I haven't cleaned off our desk since Brandon was born! Things just keep on getting piled on! I'm too tired and to be honest, the last thing I want to do when I have a free minute is clean! However... posting this mess has really lit a fire under my bootie... i will clean it up....... later!!! haha.. AFTER i scrap some more!!

And here's a picture of the notebook I keep close by so I know what I still need to scrap... although I haven't updated it since the end of January, so there's more to do than what's on there.

Oh Carrie I LOVE YOU!!!! This teacher give you an A+++!!!

I quickly scrolled through the other post(trying to not go into convulsions) and just stopped and gazed at your work spot! ROFL

As for some of you others, I hate to have to teach on a Saturday but I think its warranted. Here's a song like one I've shared with my 1st graders when its time to clean up. Please take notes! Lol

Hey I told you, any time you want to come over and help me organize....

I told you guys, you have nothing on me. But after I posted these pics, I did get in there and pic up a bit. Now my table is still a mess, but P's laundry is in the hamper and most my stuff is put away and the toys are in the closet, so it is semi presentable now.

No way. No how. Whats the point? I have a two year old and I scrap. Nothing will ever be clean in this house for more than a day or two.
