because my life is usually super busy and it takes me a while to get projects done... here is one that has been in the works for about a year. my boys bedroom is going to be a space theme. pretty hard to figure out something for a 12 and 6 year old, but this is gonna be cool. so last year, we painted the one main wall black. and that was as far as we got. confession, the blue tape was still on the ceiling because i'm too short to get it off without a chair and i kept forgetting to get a chair.  
alas, yesterday, i had about 3 hours to finish the project. i have had this tiled wall mural of the earth from the moon for years. multiple multiple years. in all fairness, i was going to get the mural up a lot sooner, but then i found out that it was slightly too big and i was going to have to cut it down. well that also took a long time to realize what i could do and how i could do it. finally, yesterday, i got a spur in my boot and figured up the math (for the most part, i did it right too) and got it cut down. so i was by myself and had to call my mom to see if she would help me. so with mom's help and then the fes (foreign exchange student) to get the tall stuff, this is the final product of their wall. the boys want a bookshelf to be hung on this wall to look like it's floating in space... 
what do you think?

my goals for this weekend is to finish up the boys room, so maybe future pictures will be coming soon. at least a more final project.

I think it is going to be very cool. Someday we might do a space/robot room for Mr. B, but for now, we just have wall stickers from Dollar Tree that are decorating the room. But it has boy and girl robots, and purple and pink stickers too, so it really works as a co-ed room for Miss A and Mr. B.
