Are you a messy crafter?

When you craft are you organized or do supplies go everywhere?

Wow that's a question.I always know where everything is but it can be a mystery to others.
I keep boxes of fibre,thread and fabric separate.
It looks like chaos but generally that helps with the creativity.

i have stuff everywhere! it's really starting to bug me as i collect more materials too. it's hard to organize it all in such a small living space. i have found a couple great ideas on this site though!

My supplies go everywhere while I'm making something. I store most of my craft supplies in an area next to my bed while I'm not.
But I don't mind. Happy

Umm my sewing table is tidy... other than that I'm a choatic organiser. I put stuff together that I want to use together - project filing ^^

I try hard to keep supplies organized though they always overflow the bins they're in. But when I'm working....let's just say that in my youth my mom said I started every project with the ritual sprinkling of the pins (on the floor)! And when I cook, don't look at the floor...

I had a system, but then I got more stuff. My desk is small and is better for displaying art than using to make art so now I craft on the floor. Everything's a mess. I need more shelves and bins and desks and maybe an extra room. Tongue

i am clean and organized pre crafting.. afterwords, everything is everywhere and it takes me forever to get everything back in their places.

No, I like to tidy up my work table when I finished, the problems is the place where I keep the mats.

I agree with Jeanniece, creativity knows no bounds! A neat crafter shows little imagination and is afraid what will happen if things get messed up. Better to create something beautiful in a feild of chaos than wallow in a wall of white.
My scrapbooking desk = mayhem.

Crafting and Mess are 2 words that can hardly be separated. If I paint something and I don't have paint stains on my hands, something's wrong. I'm trying to organize stuff but if I'm working on something supplies stand everywere!

In my world, "organized" isn't defined by neatness... There is an order to everything, but I seem to be the only one who sees it!
