Sometimes inspiration comes suddenly, like in the famous tale of Archimedes’s bathtub “Eureka!” or Oprah’s concept of “A-ha!” moments.
More often than not, inspiration comes to us when we’re actively looking to be inspired.

To complete this Community Lensmaking Quest, we’re asking you to personally design a dorm room for a college student. BUT… not for just any college student.
We’d like to see your creative ideas that are based around a certain color, or niche topic or design style such as:
Dorm Room Decorating Ideas for Girls Who Love Purple
Be specific and stay focused on the design idea you choose. Don’t go crazy with your product choices. Choose a few key items to concentrate on. Too many choices could ruin the effect of your page.
If you’ve already decorated a dorm room or two, tell us what you did to make it unique and do share photos if you’ve got them. If you haven’t yet decorated one, use your imagination and good taste to come up with something someone will love.
I created a quick one to give you an idea of what we’re looking for. Visit my BOHO Dorm Room Decorating Ideas: Carefree, Casual, Cool and while you’re there please note that I’ve used both of the description areas in my Amazon modules to share ideas and personal statements about the products I’ve featured. I’ve also added a bit of personal information about why I’ve chosen this theme and shared some useful information about the needs of a college student. Be creative with your topic choice but do try to add as much helpful information and tips as you can along with your unique decorating ideas.
When your lens is complete, publish it, and share it on Facebook and/or Twitter (add @squidoo and we’ll retweet it for you too) and then be sure to return here and share the link in the comments section below so we can all take a look.
Next week, we’ll grab a handful of your lenses to show off in a special post right here at Squidoo HQ.
