create a vision board

Here is a fun project for the kids on New Year's Eve of New Year's Day.  I have been seeing a lot of "buzz" about this simple activity.  There are lots of websites and apps to help you design one on the internet.  The funny thing is, my sisters and I used to make these with magazine pictures, glue, posterboard and our imaginations.

If you want to try this the way we did it in the "old" days, here are a few pointers.
Each family member can make their own and you can make one as a family.

You want to create a VISION.  Think of the things you want in your life, the things you want to accomplish, the things that are important to you. 
Use words that inspire
People you admire,
And goals to which you aspire!

The rest is easy, look for pictures, photos, magazine pictures that represent these things, cut them out and glue them on the board.  Find words that are important to you, cut them out and glue them on the board.  Personalize it with your name, glitter, stickers, scrapbook stickers, etc.

Put it in a place where it will be visible to you every day.

When working on a family vision board.  Everyone needs to be in agreement or willing to compromise.  Everyone should participate.  Focus on your family values and your dreams.

This can be a powerful tool and is so much more fun than writing a list of resolutions.

Thank you to all my readers in the last year.  I hope to expand and grow this blog in 2012.  Please send me your feedback and suggestions. 

Happy New Year, I wish you the very best in 2012 and lots of wonder and excitement~DV
