After the Creative Storm!

Happy Wednesday Mosh Posh fans! It is "Behind the Scenes Wednesday," and I cannot even believe I am about to reveal what I am going to reveal. So as you know....wait do you know? THE DESIGN TEAM GALLERY IS UP!!!!! It is fabulous and you can check it out HERE. Anyhoo, I have to be organized. With 4 kiddos, a husband (the equivalent of 3 more kids), teaching school, and just plain life, I have to plan ahead. But.....there is one area that I just let loose, and that is scrapbooking. I just start with a little inspiration and before you know it, there are piles of paper here, a jar of buttons there, and ribbon around my neck...I just love it. However, in the end, it is a tad embarrassing. So here you go ladies...I am letting you all in on my "creative storm"!!!!


Goodness gracious! That is terrible. Like I said the gallery went up last night and my scrapbook space was atrocious. What can I say that is the way I roll. Lets do a little recap.

1. That is my desk...a mess. I usually have piles ALL around my 12 X 12 layout. I always spend a ton of time looking here and there because of my many glorious piles...sigh...
2. Yeah...that pink box is full of my completed layouts. I have a phobia. I love to scrapbook, but I am not so good at putting my layouts in albums.
3. My paint basket...organized by...nothing.
4. My three jars of buttons, scrap ribbon, and velvet flowers. The pink merry-go-round can (?) is my most scrappy prized possession. I keep my pens, adhesive, distresser, glue, scissors, etc. in it...LOVE IT!
5. Shelves stuffed with magazines, brads and eyelets, and my sewing machine.
6. Cropper hoppers of patterned paper and unused kits.
7. Baskets of Thickers, more adhesive, and pictures to be scrapped.
8. The big picture...messy! (Did ya see that hot pink IPOD? Caaaa-ute!)

Pretty messy huh? But as your eyes scroll across my creative mess, you can focus on the one organized mecca...my calendar. I have a calendar just for my scrappy projects. I put all of my due dates for my design teams, challenges and contests I want to participate in, and just scrappy things that I am looking forward to (i.e. Mosh Posh kit reveal)!
There ya have it! Any advice? If so let me know...as you can see, I can sure use some tips. Hope you are enjoying the September kit! See ya soon.

Oh man. I totally love the idea of a scrappy calendar all on it's own. Why didn't I think of that!? Thanks for sharing your scrappy aftermath... We've all been there! LOL
