Remember when I told you I was working on something special (with the magazines) in my last post?

Any guesses? It's not work-related! It's more like...artsy-crafty therapy for 2016. Haha!

Any guesses about what I’m doing? It’s not work-related! It’s more like an artsy-crafty activity. Hehe!

I’m a big believer in sending my prayers, wishes, and dreams out to the Universe—and one of the ways that I do that is by making a vision board. It’s a great way to set your intentions and goals for the year!

One of the ways I like to do this is by creating a Vision Board.

Here’s what you need: a board (or thick paper), old magazines, scissors, and glue.

I’m pretty sure you have most of these things somewhere in your house. And although it can be painful to rip pages out of magazines, it’s worth it in the end. I really enjoy doing this because it’s serves as my compass throughout the year. So when I’m down or need a little inspo, I just look at my board and I get the good vibes I need.

And oh yes, having a trash can beside you is helpful also. You'll be snipping a lot of things, so this makes clean-up a lot faster!

My process is pretty straightforward, really. All I do is flip through the magazines and rip out all the images and words that catch my eye. The “magical” part here is that you’re not supposed to think at all—just rip out what you want and set it aside. No thinking! Just rip! You’ll be surprised because your subconscious might reveal goals/dreams/aspirations that you didn’t even know you wanted!

Here's a closer look at some of the images that I liked this year.

After I’ve gone through about a mix of 4-5 magazines, then I start sorting through the images again and assembling them on my board. It’s like a puzzle since you try to see how all the different sizes, images, and words go together.

And once you like the way it looks, then start glueing!

This was actually my vision board from two years ago! I used thick, watercolor paper as the background here. Sometimes I use an illustration board (about 1/8 in size), but I prefer this now since I was able to cut out the images I wanted to keep and use it for my next board!

Do you think you’ll make a vision board for 2016? Tag me if you do! I’d love to see it! ♥
