Some time ago I made a vision board with my 11 year old Spanish student. it was a fun activity to do together and I really liked how mine came out. As you probably know, or many don't, I love scrapbooking- even though I haven't finished one single scrapbook yet- and you can see on my crafts tab all the little projects I like to do, like decorate my planner, scrap on my journal, etc. I liked doing this vision board because it helped put into images what I want to accomplish this year. I feel like it helps a bit more to have everything so clearly laid out for me to see instead of a dreadful to-do list, don't you think?

Here's my vision board. Major things to achieve:

Have a baby- check! See Wesley's baby posts here, here and here.

Read a lot (myself and to my kids): I've been reading a lot myself while I breastfeed but I haven't been great a reading to Will.

Do my make-up every day or most days: haven't been doing that lately since baby arrived.
Take action! Get fit!: Hmmm I am down to pre-pregnancy weight (second pregnancy, not first)) but I still have 45 lbs to go. Haven't started officially running or working out hard core... 6 weeks post partum.

Eat right: not so good... we try to cook healthy with my mom while she's here but our in laws are taking us out to dinner very often (like once a week) and I can't say I make the best decisions while out.

What you need to make your own vision board:

Washi tape to decorate

Have fun! Think of either making a long term vision board or a short term one so you can focus on what you want to achieve on either terms. If you want to, you can think on a certain time frame, like 6 months or a year or 5 years. I did mine thinking about this year mostly, the next six to twelve months. If you do yours show it to me!
