Yes, I'm here working in my class today, but I thought I would take a few minutes here to show you some of my home away from home.
Fabulous Phyllis sewed this seat cushion for me. Do you see the Mary E. fabric welting?
I painted this lamp black and then covered a lampshade with some different Mary E. fabric. I LOVE the giant black ric rac on the edge of the shade.
Do you see a Mary Engelbreit theme going on here? I teach my students many things over the year but one of the most memorable is who Mary Engelbreit is. I have students who are now in their twenties who still remember how much I love Mary E.
The Sewing Bee made this valance. I made the little banner. I used some cherry ribbon I had to string the letters on.
Sewing Bee made these pillows too. I choose different students every day to use the pillows when I read to them.
Do you think I have enough Mary E. magnets?
I really want my students to love to read. Do you think they get the message? I hope so!
I have some plans for painting some of the furniture in here too. Yes, we teachers sometimes spend our own money on furniture for our classrooms, especially if we want it to be comfortable and cozy.
How would you decorate your work space?
Thank you for stopping by! Once I get some of those projects done, I'll share them with you. Of course, they might not happen until the summer!
