My Vision Board for 2012

I had been collecting words and images for my vision board since after Christmas.  Full of steam, then I stopped.  I'm like that at times--so gung ho, then I lose that steam.  Not sure if it's fear or what, but following through and finishing things is sometimes hard for me.  I don't even like to finish a bottle of shampoo before I can move on to a newer, better, fuller one.  I'm working on it though!

Here it's mid-January and my vision board is complete. Well, sort of.  There are a few blank spaces I guess I feel like I should have filled up every white space, but didn't. I can always add more later, right? It's hanging on the closet door in my studio/home office where I can look at it everyday for inspiration.  I read somewhere that I should put a picture of myself in the center, looking happy, which I thought would be a great idea.  Me looking happy surrounded by uplifting words, dreams, goals and pictures.  My picture is from a night in November that I had some mini canvases displayed at ArtBar in Milwaukee.  Two of my best friends in the world went with me on this Friday night to celebrate.  Now it's not like this exhibit was a solo one at all; there were tons of other minis, but for some reason I felt on top of the world that night.  That's why I chose this picture--I can just see and feel my excitement from that night.

I found positive and inspiring words such as: guts, confidence, joy, peace, creative fun, feeling good, sparkle, etc.  You can see them so I won't rewrite them for you.  Also, those of you who know me are aware that I was really excited about Flora Bowley and her Bloom True workshop coming to Wisconsin, so I even printed a photo of her painting on the bottom left, in hopes that I would be able to paint with and learn from her this year.  Sure enough, a few days after I finished my vision board, I was able to get registered into her class.  Though I don't have a lot of pictures, the others I have depict water, the beach, people doing yoga and overall tropical locations.  This is where I feel most at peace and want to invite more of that into my life--more travel and more yoga and meditation.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my vision board for 2012.  Looking at it makes me feel excited for the upcoming year and the continuing journey I am on.


  1. Great vision board! And so inspiring! I'm out of town right now, but I'll be working on mine this week. I hope all of your vision comes to fruition in 2012. xoxo

  2. Thanks, Cindy:) I really do think it can be an exciting thing to create and it really is inspiring and uplifting if it's out for you to see everyday.


  3. This is really good. We're in our 36 foot RV for the winter and space is so limited, along with the fact that the bulk of my old magazines are back home in MI. For now, I'm going to make one with Pinterest and do the best that I can.

    1. That would be hard in a small space, Carol. Using Pinterest would be great actually because you can find soooo many beautiful and inspiring quotes and images there. I'd love to see it when you finish if you'd like to share.
