The start of this year is what I imagine a marathon would be. I sprinted off down the road and I haven’t looked back, nor had time to stop to think about anything. I am not sure why this year is busier than years past, but I know I am going to make the most of it.
To help keep my year on track, I decided to get my goals down on paper. It’s not about when I finish them, but how well I do at accomplishing my goals. I’ve been doing a lot of personal discovery and professional development lately, but wanted to create something to help solidify these goals.
So the perfect opportunity arose! I was in need of a much needed girl’s weekend, and happen to have a friend who loves crafts just as much as I do. This friend lives about 4 hours from me, so we decided to meet in the middle.
We met in Eufaula, Alabama. It’s a nice little town with some great plantation style homes to tour and antique shops to get lost in! We mostly wanted to meet up to drink some wine, and craft- thus a plan to make vision boards was formed!
Things I used:
- Canvas board( From Michael’s)
- Magazines, pictures, stickers
- Glue and Mod Podge
Before we started designing our boards, we painted the background just to give it a nice base. While those were drying, we spent about an hour cutting out pictures or quotes from magazines. The actual making of the vision board does not take that much time- unless wine is involved.
Once we assembled our boards and they dried, we discussed what each picture/quote meant to us. It was nice to get those goals out in the open and really make them tangible. My vision board hangs in my bathroom, so I stare at it each morning while prepping for my day.
