I tend to have a hard time throwing things away. My brain is always seeing creative ways it can be revived, repurposed or reused. I guess I'm rubbing off on my family because this project was requested/inspired by my sister.
My niece went away to college this year 😭 and as hard as it was to see her go, the excitement of decorating her dorm helped assuage the pain for my sister and I. I think it was reminiscent of decorating for all those birthday parties for us. Anyway!
