      What do you wear when you scrapbook? An apron, run down clothes? Nothing…. :P Are you messy and tend to stain your good clothes? Or does it not matter?

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        I SHOULD wear my apron, but I don't. I am super messy, and I do ruin some good t-shirts.

          Like Rae, I SHOULD wear my apron. But I dislike aprons, so…..
          Anyway, unless I'm out with people, I wear my housecleaning clothes: whatever is old, wo and comfortable. And if I am with people, I seem to a acquired several t's that are scrappy specific. I have my Camp t's and Meg and I decorated a few shirts a couple years ago.

            I wear a tshirt and sweat pants. I have tons of old t's that i scrap in. They have all gotten stained. I have several aprons, but feel restricted when I wear them.

              LOL!! I need an apron!

              After I get ready for the day, I tend to scrap for an hour or so until I pick Elijah up from school. My clothes are mostly black, so I always have little lint from distressing the paper all over my shirt. LOL!!! Not a cool look!

                I'm with you Ang. Got myself always coverd with everything. And yes… I ruined a lot of good clothes with Gesso. But as far as for inks…. I get them out of my clothes using Ranger Alcohol Ink Blending Solution.

                    I wear t-shirts and sweat pants. They're old and have plenty of stains.

                      Ditto for me, especially ruining the pretty aprons! My sweatpants definitely have that used while crafting look… my fave pair have contributions from several different mediums. I tend to have one dedicated old tshirt for crafting at any time time that I wear until it literally falls apart because it has so many rips and holes, but I do have a couple that are appropriate for company scrapping.

                        I wear whatever I'm wearing but I wear an apron. I have a couple aprons I rotate so one is usually clean. I also use cloth diapers as clean up rags so I usually have one in my lap when I'm working. Part of my apron wearing is that it's kind of like a prompt to shift gears mentally to my happy creative place!

                            I usually wear whatever I'm wearing for the day. If i know I'm going to be using mediums, or inks then i put an apron on otherwise I'm like Peggy I find them restrictive

                              I usually wear my work cloths. That's what I get ready in the moing in and then I will scrap in what I am wearing that day. I should wear a apron but I don't.

                                I'm a really clean scrapper (I use chalk ink and gelatos a lot because they don't stain, LOL)… but I find baby wipes very useful. OK gotta say something about the cloth diapers… I really wish I could have been strong enough to use them (but I would have gagged!). Good for you to have used them… so much better for our earth!

                                  I'm extremely messy. That being said I don't ever change or put on an apron. I work as I can throughout the day and if I changed evreytime, I'd never get anything done.
                                  I've ruined more clothes than I can count, the rug, 2 bedspreads (I have a bed in my craft room as a back up back up guest bed), a set of curtains and so on.

                                  Yes I'm messy lol
                                  which cracks me up cause the rest of the house is neat as a pin
