schoolroom week

Here is where we do school (and sew and craft and entertain guests and blog... you get the picture). I am so excited to finally have a table big enough for the whole family to work at and not be bumping elbows!

These maps are new too (if you turn it around the other side is a map of the USA). I got them at Office Max for $20 and spend another $7 on the wood (4 52" pieces of screen trim) I used double sticky tape to put the maps together and to hold the wood in place then used a staple gun to attach the wood then tied twine to the ends and hung!

And just so you can get a better fell for the space here are some more pictures of our "great room". This is the other side of the room.
Those blue book cases hold all our school books, and yes, that is my wreath made of Christmas balls still hanging- I just liked it so much I did not want to take it down :)

If you zoom in on this one you will see my nativity is still out too- we celebrate Jesus' birth all year long around here.

Oh, I did some rearranging in the kitchen too. This chalk board used to hang where the maps are now.
So, this is where we spend our days! Now go on over the heart of the matter to check out everyone else's schoolrooms at the Not Back to School Blog Hop!
