Default Can someone explain...

how my desk goes from spotless to a complete explosion of stuff, after just one card?

What!!? Only the desk! That's amazing!! My whole Craft Room explodes! Last night I knocked over a canister of glitter on my desk (oh joy!!) and now that seems to have spread to the rest of the house!

I was so excited this year because I actually took over my DS room when he moved out. I swore to my husband that if I had my own room I would be so much organized! Um...no. Now I have a bigger room to make a bigger mess!

LOL Good question. When you figure it out let us know!! I had a card-making marathon last week right before Xmas and I had craft supplies EVERYWHERE. It took me hours to clean up.

You mean it's not supposed to? Since my whole area explodes whenever I paper craft, I was hoping it was normal

I share craft and office space. No matter how I promise to be organised and tidy, they seem to be attracted to each other.

And when I tidy it up, it never seems to go back into the space it came from

I'm wondering how you can cut a piece of cardstock in half.........Use half and lose half. This can happen on my messy desk as easy as my clean desk.

Hooray! Make sure you put some glittery in the lava or it will look too clean in your craft space.

This happens to me all the time. It seems like no matter how much I clean as I go - by the time I've finished my card my craft room looks like a tornado has been through it.

I am the only person I know who can sit in one place and not move from that spot and lose everything. My scissors, my bone folder, my paper, the stamp I'm stamping with - absolutely everything. Sometimes I manage to laugh at myself but usually I just get frustrated that I end up spending more time looking for stuff than I do making my card.

My favourite is when you discover the stazon ink pad lid while you are looking, then can't find the pad. So far I've mostly been lucky but I'm waiting for the day that I find it face down on my carpet or it has completely ruined a project.

I'd say if it's just the table you're lucky, LOL.
I use my Wizard on the floor - doesn't take long before there are open CD cases, loose dies and embossing folders taking up space there too. DH plays a computer game on my PC most evenings - it's a together time thing, because he could play on the laptop anywhere. I tidy while he plays, and that just about keeps it in check. But that's pretty much every evening. Currently while I am waiting for a new handle I have to use the Wizard on a chair - that only makes it worse.

Me too! I love it when I lose the item I had in my hand just a few seconds ago.

And it's not just my desk - I usually end up with my paper boxes and folders spread out on the floor behind me.

I try to put things back as I go, and that has helped control the explosion (or volcano - I like that term), but it doesn't matter. It still looks like a bomb went off on my desk.

I should post an "after" picture in my gallery, just for fun. We all post the pictures of our work spaces all neat and clean, but mine doesn't usually look like that.

Last year I re arranged my craft room to make space for my hubby and his hobbies. More times than I can admit my bits and bobs spilled way over to his area. He is happy so long as it does n't hit the kitchen, family room and the rest of the house. And even then he just rolls his eyes.

This is so me as well. I had to clean up my craft room since I needed two of my three tables for my fall craft shows. Then my father in-law made my youngest child a car bed (which I have to paint) so I have had that in my room so I couldn't put my tables back up.......fast forward to 3 months later I am desperate to get this car out of my room since I now will get our old cubicle desk system that we were using for our office in the basement. But my one remaining table top hasn't been seen in 3 months. I have adopted using a bin to carry my work on project into the house to work on. (my craft space is in the garage)
Uug! It is the painting pixie for me, I need one of those right now

That would be fabulous actually. A trunk full of inks and wood mounted stamps, your cling stamps stuck to all the windows and car mirrors, copics in the glove box, and if your SO complains about the amount of rubber in your stamp room, you can at least blame some of the rubber smell on the car tires.

OK, I don't have it down to a science or anything, but I do try to keep my space cleaned up (at least at the end of the day), because my stuff is in a corner of my living room right now. I can't have my stuff exploding all over the living room ALL the time, lol! I have to say, it is more of an incentive to keep it straightened up when I know everyone will be seeing it, then when I had a craft room with a door that I could close to hide the mess!

As to lost tools while creating, I have a shelf next to my desk, within arms reach, where I keep a cup full of the essentials, scissors, bone folder, pen, etc. When I am done with a tool, I put it back in the cup so I can grab it again when needed. As I craft, I try to put stuff back as I am done with it. Scraps get stacked off to the side to be put away when done.

A great suggestion I once read, that works well for me, is to put like things away when cleaning up. All tools at once, all adhesive, all embellishments, all paper, etc.

This is an outworking of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. I came across this handy concept in Physics class in my final year of school. To understand the essentials, just read the parts highlighted in red of the following, which I CASEd from Wikipedia:

"The concept of entropy is defined by the second law of thermodynamics, which states that the entropy of a closed system always increases. Thus, entropy is also measure of the tendency of a process, such as a chemical reaction, to be entropically favored, or to proceed in a particular direction. It determines that thermal energy always flows spontaneously from regions of higher temperature to regions of lower temperature, in the form of heat. These processes reduce the state of order of the initial systems, and therefore entropy is an expression of disorder or randomness. "

So, what this says is that by one of the laws of the universe, the amount of disorder in any of our craft spaces is bound to increase. It's no use fighting nature.....

Simple

And the only way to decrease entropy and increase order is to pour in massive amounts of energy.

HMMM
