Something A Little Different

Good Morning and Happy Monday my Crafty Friends!

Well today, I have a little something different to share.  As most of you know, I teach 11th Grade CCD (Religion Ed) for my parish, Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church.  We're starting our new school year this Saturday, August 23rd.  The high school CCD program meets once a month on a Saturday for 3 hrs.  I don't get a lot of time to share with them so it has to count!  This year, I get my OWN room and am super excited, I normally share a room with another grade (normally an elementary grade, they meet on a different day).  So that means I can decorate it any way I like and make it my own.  In our diocese, (New Orleans) our children do not Confirm until 11th grade, so that's what I teach...the Sacrament of Confirmation.  I want to make our room special!  

Here is a peek at what I am doing thus far......

 Okay, let me tell you about my bulletin board, first off it is not my original idea. {GASP} I found it on Pinterest, changed it up a bit and made it my own!  One of the things we will be focusing on this year is getting to know Jesus, and what better place to do that, than the Gospels.  Sorry for whatever reason my pic of St. Luke is distorted. 

Okay, about these sideways curtains.  LOL  I don't know why but it won't load the correct way.  Blogger really doesn't like me.  Let me just say, I am not seamstress!  I really don't know much about sewing.  Ok, make that nothing!  I do however own a sewing machine.  The story behind the curtains is this, I took the original curtains that were hanging in my room home to wash and well they kinda disintegrated in the wash.  EEEEKKKKK!  The windows are a weird size so I couldn't find any to buy.  So I decided I would TRY to make some, with my mother's guidance over the telephone (she had a total knee replacement approximately 5 weeks ago) I was able to create some semblance of curtains!  They work!!!!! Don't laugh at me.  Hee Hee!

For whatever reason I didn't take a pic of our prayer table.  I'll do another post later as I continue to add things to our room!  Have a wonderful day!

Until Next Time................
