Vision Board

You know from my vlog, My Three Favorite Magazines that I am a magazine junkie.

In the past, I have subscribed to just about everything on the newsstand and nowadays I collect my magazines from a variety of places (I'll never reveal my sources!). I devour them from cover to cover, save articles that I want to re-read, share with others or might need some day. My might need someday pile is ridiculous!

Ever since I was in high school, I have used magazines to make collages. I would painstakingly remove the ring from my notebooks and cover the covers in photos I liked (think Guess ads and cute and furry puppies) and then used contact paper to protect them and then put the rings back on. It was quite the process, but it was a lot of fun for me. I covered notebooks for all my friends. And, of course, I saved my favorites:As a teenager the walls of my bedroom were always plastered in Tiger Beat pull out posters and advertisements from magazines. This was my room circa 1990:Surprisingly, the one thing I never made was a vision board.

What's a vision board you ask?

A vision board is typically a poster-size board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve cut out of magazines. Right up my alley...

The idea behind a vision board is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to vacation and your life changes to match those images and those desires. Worth a shot, right?

In my women's group this week, we all sat around a table covered with glue sticks, scissors and heaps of magazines and let our subconscious minds take over.

Here's what I ended up with:

I still have some blank space but there are lots of inspiring words (calm, breathe, dream), peaceful images (hammock on the beach, cocktails poolside), photos of places I'd like to visit (Greece) or return to someday (Paris and New York) and people I hope to meet (Dave Matthews). What?! It could happen. All of it!

I'll keep you updated on the progress and hope you'll consider making one for yourself. Or if you have already created a vision board, maybe it's time to update it?

I will join you for poolside cocktails when you go.

Nice! Great idea too. I might do this (and make use of all my magazines!) once I have my own home office (which is soon, I hope..)

I have always thought of doing one of these. I'm not sure if Oprah's site still has this, but it used to have a virtual way to do this. I started, but never finished. I think I'd like the actual magazine browsing and cutting, though. I might just take on a project like this. :-)

We made one last year and it's been so fun to mark things off as we've accomplished them! When you set your sights on something and work for it it is so rewarding to see it happening!

That's a great vision board, Tonya! You could totally meet Dave Matthews. I actually do these all the time. My husband used to be really into doing them and then he got me hooked. Back after I suffered a miscarriage, I just needed something positive to look at each day and it definitely helped. I actually took the one I had down a while back because I reached many of the goals. You've inspired me to do a new one!

Tonya, i love this! I've made one before {although it has been awhile!} and found it so centering and clarifying! Good for you!

I love it!! Your inspiring words are great.

It has been over a year since I've made one, and I think it is time for an update. Thanks for the reminder.

I LOVE this idea...I think you've inspired me (again) to try something new :)

This is an awesome idea! I love that you still have room, too...

I am sure that I picked up my love of making collages from you. It was such a relaxing project for me during high school and then in college too. I have made a few since for a couple friends but not too many and certainly haven't made any in awhile. I wish that I had kept more from those days but I think I have only one or two lying around somewhere. My favorite one will always one that you made me when I was in high school. I see it just about everyday hanging in my room. I'll let you know when I make my own vision board with that construction paper you brought home for me.

Oh, this is awesome! A vision board is on my to-do list. Will have to do it and post it.
