The summer is flying by and college is right around the corner. Didn't expect it to sneak up on you quite so fast, did you, Mom? Well, you can sit around sobbing and eating pints of ice cream or you can get busy ... dorm DIY is all the rage, and, well, it may be your last chance to get out your glue gun and do something with your kid for a good long while.

Remember when you used to sit down at the dining room table with crayons and butcher paper and waste away an entire afternoon? Ah, so long ago. Now your kids are all about their cellphones and trying to convince their university of choice that Keurigs are so much safer than hot plates.

But if your teen is obsessed with having the coolest dorm on campus, you're in luck -- because we've rounded up 10 of the blogosphere's coolest crafts for college dorm rooms.

From homesickness cures to secret cellphone spots, there's something for everyone ... even a few things you might accidentally forget to pack and end up using yourself.

Awesome list. I don't have kids going that way yet, but some would be awesome at home too.

I don't like most of them personally however I do think the jewelry organizer is a great idea and I do like anything to do with displaying personal photos so I like the two that do that.
