This is a vision board-really?! A vision of what? I had a prompt-cut out pictures and words that appeal to you. No rhyme or reason for any of these choices, really...unless my subconscious was at work. My resources-magazines-were somewhat limited and therefore, dictated some my choices. I've thought of redoing this, but the only magazines I have left are crafting magazines. While I want to "invite" creative crafting into my life, that isn't my whole picture.
Now, if I look at this and try to analyze my choices after the fact, I see some themes: creativity, learning, self-acceptance, spirituality...
I cut out pictures of babies, puppies and kittens, but I'm way past having babies (oh, but my grand baby...JOY!) and we have a full compliment of dogs and cats---not inviting any more critters into my world right now! None of those pictures made the board.
I wanted to find pictures of multigenerational family dinners-I DO want to invite that into my life! Piles of money would be nice. Money does NOT buy happiness and can even create its own problems---or so I've been told, but I'd like some piles so I didn't have to worry about my old age, so I could help my kids get established... but I didn't find any pictures of money and really, would I have pasted that to my board? Hmmm... I don't know-mute point!
My base is a piece a cardboard-kind of ragged on the sides, giving it an artsy look! I started to get a little too obsessive about clean cut pages so started to throw caution to the wind---a little bit!
I've challenged my daughters to create their own vision boards. This is not a new process to them and they look very carefully for their pictures unlike Momma, here, who went purely on attraction. I can't wait to see what they come up with!
If you want to create a vision board but want a better sense of what they are supposed to be, just google Vision Board. You'll find plenty of links-among them Oprah's site.
So, Mz. Sassy Cheryl, this is what I worked on this week-one of the many things! And this is what makes me oh, so happy right now...I've printed a ginormous copy of this and posted it right under my vision board...
