MrsK's Review:
Since your bedroom is the place you spend most of your time...
"It should be a reflection of who you are.
Maybe you're ready for a grown-up room,
but don't want to give up all your favorite stuffed animals just yet.
Use this book as a guide to transform your bedroom into a cute,
comfortable, relaxing, inspiring and happy place..."

This DIY idea book is full of creative ideas that you can do with little-to-no money. If you could transform your room into your own retreat, what would it look like? How would you get started? What or how would your parents be involved? What would be your theme? Do you know which colors and textures inspire or comfort you? The organization (steps in the process) are easy to follow and perfected for even the smallest corner of your room. Have fun and enjoy discovering your own style!

During every season of your life, there will be an emerging self that can be embraced, celebrated, and inspired. If you are feeling lost or lonely, do something good for yourself... why not redo a mason jar just for your make-up brushes? Why not cut and paste a "dream" journal that shows what you think is beautiful, unique, or inspiring? Why not fix up a little retreat corner of your own? Doing good things for yourself doesn't always mean buying something that will be discarded in a week or a month. Passing on some of your treasures can bring joy to someone else and a new space for you to re-make.

Enjoy celebrating over your changes,
Fun... Creative... Inspiring... 
A new room for a new season!
