First order of business? Create a vision board to hang in my bedroom, to double/triple/quadruple my intentions of seeing dreams come true in 2012.
Step One : Get a basic bulletin board from your local office supply store. (Or flea market, or basement -- or re-purpose one!) I found this one at Office Depot for just $10.
Step Two : Find a pretty piece of fabric. (This came from my old college DIY drapes.) Cut a piece so it just barely overlaps the inside edges of your board frame. (And, as is in my case, is entirely crooked -- oops.)
Step Three : Fold under the raw edges and secure in place with push pins, staples, or hot glue. (I wasn't sure the hot glue would work here and, honestly, didn't want to go dig mine out. So push pins it was!)
Step Four : Adorn with images of all things inspire-worthy, that remind you of happiness and possibility when you look at it.
Step Five : Hang in a central location to be reminded often. I hung mine at the foot of my bed, to see every morning :) (Bonus if you have a cute cat to cozy things up a bit.)
Right now, my board's still a work in progress. I wanted to have it filled before I took photos and posted to the blog, but then realized if I waited until it was perfect, I might be waiting awhile. So here it is, in progress and imperfect! So far, my photos are for a sweet pretty home to call my own (with an added black puppy! See it?), the solace and beauty of being free and independent, a tribe of women, and a one true love.
Do you have a vision board? Plan on making one? I'd love to see!
