And this is where I have to now bend my head in shame and proclaim loudly how much I freakin' loved doing this project!
What was I so afraid of? You take stuff out of magazines that capture your eye quickly and without a lot of thought to it and then you paste it on paper in a beautiful collage. What is not to like? Cutting, pasting, magazines! It was the best.
Even better, was the fact that my dear long suffering husband totally did one too even though I only had design and women's magazines for him to pull his vision from. We contentedly spent two hours on the living room floor cutting and pasting our future together. We were totally absorbed and although we aren't sure what our boards mean exactly we have hung them in our bedroom and we drift past them and wonder aloud to each other what they have in store for us.
Maybe I had to wait. Maybe I had to get old enough to not care about seeming like a cliche. Maybe I just needed to find this class and jump in with both feet. Whatever it is, I am so on the vision board bandwagon.
If you are interested in doing your own vision board I highly recommend Martha Beck's instructions for building an effective vision board.
