In aftermath of the chaos to get lots of cards and other items done for the fair, my scrapbook area has begun to look like a hurricane hit it.  My husband and kids think it should be condemmed.  Me on the other hand realizes that it is just a by product of my extremely creative and disorganized mind.  My area is actually in our hobby room I share with my husband, who uses his area for leather working, reloading, gun cleaning and several other hobbies he pursues.  Of course my area is strictly dedicated to my scrapbooking and papercrafting.  Though we are sharing the room, my side has gotten so bad with tools, papers, ideas and other items completely covering every available flat space, I was starting to over flow into Ken's area.  So 2 Saturday's ago I started the painful process of doing a deep cleaning of my area.  I started by moving everything out away from the walls, piling it in the hallway and on Ken's side and then mopping my half off the floor.  A girl's got to get the glitter off the concrete some how.  LOL   Well since then I have slowly been moving things back to place, I say slowly because I managed to injure my hip and lowback on Monday and have been unable to sit or stand for long periods of time since.  Ken has been pushing me to get the job finished since most of my stuff is now in his area, so he can't work on any  of his projects.  Of course he is also accusing me of taking over his side of the room, especially since everything was so bad that if I needed a flat space to work i would pull up to one of his benches LOL.  I am in the process of finishing the cleaning so I will post those pictures later, until then this is what EXTREMELY  MESSY looks like.

This is looking in the room from my office.  The first table is actually one Ken uses to cut his leather on, but as you can see I have overtaken it for now.  The white box you see is where I place my flowers or other items when i am going crazy with my homemade glimmer mist.

This is one of my work tables, it is fairly clean in this picture cause I had taken it down and used it at the fair.  Of course once I Set it back up it became a clutter magnet again.  The back wall is where my non-ctmh paper storage is at along with my stampsets and other misc items. 

These shelves are suppossed to hold my tools and supplies so I have everything at my finger tips.  The problem is I often get things out and fail to properly put them away.

This table is my main work station.  As you can see there is not an inch of real estate available to work on as i just keep throwing things on top of the piles instead of putting it away.  Did I mention that I am very messy when I am in that creative mode.

This is the resemblance of organization i have right now in my area.  This is where I keep all my CTMH cardstock and paper packs.  The cardstock is all kept in plactic bags to keep it from getting dusty and kept in Season order (my way of learning what color goes in what season).  The paper packs are just randomly put in an empty slot, so I can look through them when needed.

This is Ken's side of the room, if you notice he has everything in its place and actually goes nuts if anyone moves his stuff out of place.  The radio on the corner is mine as is the papers in the middle of the work space.  Though I ain't taking over this room at all.
