Hmmm, well, mine varies, but I usually do my best work when I am in the living room in my comfy chair and the kids and hubby are elsewhere. It's usually me, laptop, maybe some scratch paper(to remember the kits, etc, I'm using), something to drink and sometimes a snack. But most of the time I forget the drink and snack are even there! Another way I usually scrap, at least when I get some good work done is in my bedroom at night after everyone else is asleep. The hours fly by when I do that, so I try to not scrap at night.

I usually scrap at night, because I usually don"t get bugged, like in the morning and afternoon. I just have my coffee at hand. I don't eat at my computer. Jules
at my desk, that I share with my boyfriend. Usually he's playing with his PC while I scrap. TV is on (but I don't pay attention). yes, I eat or drink. for example now I have my Coke ^__^ And I prefer to scrap when Marcello is near me, because every now and then I ask "what do you think about this?" And I hide/show a layer "better with or without?". "Maybe" he doesn't like a lot this part (me asking) Chiara Castelluccia
I work on my projects starting around 8 am. It is quiet, usually I am the only one up and I turn on the tv and watch off and on while I work on my layouts. I am constantly thinking (during the night when I am laying in bed), about what I want to design, how can I achieve the effect and tell the story about the photos that are in my mind. When I get up, I may have abandoned the entire selection of photos that I thought about last night and will start over again. I am my own worst enemy and that is why it takes me so long to start a project. But once started, then I stick with it to the end and am usually satisfied with the results. ccynden -
I scrap at my desk on my laptop at any time during the day or all day. It doesn't bother me if DH is around when I'm scrapping. I usually have the phone with me so I don't have to get up to answer it but no music on as I'm too distracted. Sometimes I'll take my laptop into the t.v. room to finish a LO there and sort of watch t.v. at the same time as long as I know ahead of time exactly what I'm doing. I also have bits of paper and a pen nearby on my desk to write the names of kits down. Belle33
The family computer desk is in the living room, so that's where I scrap. Sometimes the TV is on, but it's usually the boys playing xBox games. Sometimes if I've heard enough of the games, I'll stick in my headphones and turn on some music. My water bottle is always close by, so yes, I drink my water. I tend not to eat at my desk because I find I eat mindlessly if I do. I'm not sure what this alone word you speak of means. Giggle. No, I'm very seldom ever alone. Tammyshere
I use a laptop so scrap all over the place, the study where there is a desk, the kitchen sitting at the breakfast bar, the lounge if there's something on tv I want to watch. On saying that I don't sleep very well at night so often get up in the early hours rather than lie in bed tossing and turning and that's the time I like the best. It's quiet and peaceful and I'm able to scrap uninterupted, usually with a cup of tea and a couple of biscuits a1bjm
Let's see---my scrapping space. Well, my little one room apartment is a FROG, (I'm sure most of you know what that is) but I love it here. I have my bed, tv, nice comfortable rocker, all my scrapping supplies and trusted computer to digi scrap. Sometimes I have the tv on, but prefer it quiet and prefer to be along. Always have something to drink and usually something to eat also. Sometimes Jameson will come in and play on the floor with her games, but she is really good and is quiet. NancyP
My scrapping space consists of my room, with soft music on. I don't do well with distraction, so I will generally tell anyone in the house not to bother me till I open my door back up. LOL! Dawn
I have a laptop now and started scrapping at the kitchen table. Yesterday I moved to the drop front desk in living room to get off the table. Now that we have new service and our WiFi box downstairs, I get a signal! Plus, it is my Moms desk to I feel comforted. Nanscraps
I have a scrap room down in the basement , yes I drink but do not eat and I am alone most of the time Dawn Miner
I have claimed my 'corner' of the lounge room. I have my chair (which is a 2-seater) spread with me & my 'things' & only gets cleared when necessary. I sometimes will have the TV on, but not always. Sometimes there will be someone else in the room watching TV/a movie, but mostly I am on my own. There are times (when it's cold & wet) that I like to just sit in bed & scrap. This is mostly on the weekends. Maggie
