Crafty Tuesday Vision Boards

We had a crowd for Crafty Tuesday today! Seven of us got together for crafting, visiting and of course, lunch! At this end of the table was hand stitching.....

And at the other end of the table we were making Vision Boards.....

Have you heard of Vision Boards? I had made them years ago but hadn't thought about them in a while. Then I read this post on Carrie Bloomston's blog and knew I needed to make one again! I also received Carrie's book, The Little Spark, 30 ways to ignite your creativity, for Christmas. What an awesome book! You really should check it out. 

I tossed out an invitation to my crafty friends to join me in making the Vision Boards and three of them decided to do it. All four of us had chosen words for the year and we decided to make boards that represented our words. Grace's word is "trust". Melissa chose "inspiration" for her word, and made a collage to include in her notebook for her word. Joellen's word is "improvement" and I love what she did with her Vision Board....


 I love that three of us chose "I" words this year. Here's the board I made for my word, Imagine....


This will be a great visual to have in front of me this year as I explore my word.

I think I'm the only one that is feeling uninspired period. I admire your choosing words and exploring with them already...

Ellyn! What a wonderful group of women and I love that you each had a word theme! The boards look sparkling and alive. I am so happy my words inspired you in a small way. Now, the magic begins as your board starts appearing in your life! When you have manifested everything on your board it will be time to make the next one. For some people, that is once a year, for others every 6 months. Happy New Year!
xo, Carrie B.
