Week 4 of Six Weeks of Creating….This week a little departure from making a piece of art and moving into the realm of actually creating something in your life or your home. I chose to redo a room in my house. My son and I chose to pull an extreme makeover home edition room makeover for my “tween” daughter. In 24 hours we cleared 12 bags of garbage and 9 boxes of “baby” toys from the room and restyled from a flower and whimsical style to a new look and feel that will bring her into her teen years…….here are the results……..
