Another Sunday, another brand new blog post. Today I’ve decided to share with you guys; why & how to make vision boards. You may be wondering what exactly a vision board is. Well, a vision boards is essentially a board of all your future dreams, goals and visions. It’s normally used by companies who wants to brain storm which visions they have for the company in the future. However, when it comes to personal vision boards, it’s obviously your own goals and aims for your future. Without further a do, if you’re hooked so far then make sure to keep on reading.
Why to make vision boards? So, my mum and I actually made vision boards about 8 years a go. I don’t know where mine went, but my mum kept her’s. Then when we moved she put it up next to her bed and probably didn’t think much about it. However, one day when I was in her bedroom I spotted it and realised that 90% of all her dreams she’d now achieved. It was absolutely mind blowing! And as you can imagine we’ve been wanting to make new ones ever since. In Denmark it’s been “Autumn Break” this week, which resultet in me and my mum making vision boards.
Now to the “how?” part. To be completely honest with you, then there isn’t really a correct or wrong way to make vision boards. However, I do have a bunch of tips and tricks for you which both me and my mum would recommend.
// get as MANY magazines as possible // We didn’t really realise that we’d need as many magazines as we did. I mean it obviously depends on how big or small your actual board is. Ours was about 100×70 cm (which is pretty big) so we obviously needed quite a few magazines.
// vision board essentials// I mean all you actually need is glue, magazine cut outs, scissors and a boards. However, we used sticky notes, washi tape, stickers and such as well. I mean I guess it all comes down to what one prefer. And since I’m a very creative and visual person – I want it to look AMAZING.
// pinterest is a helpful source // I’ve said it before and I’m gonna say it again: Pinterest is like the Bible of creativity. If you’re bit lost on what you want your vision board to look like, then check out Pinterest and there’ll be thousands of helpful tips and tricks. Another thing it’s great for is to find perfect pictures. If you feel like you’re missing a picture of something that you just couldn’t find in a magazine. Then go on pinterest and I’ll assure you you’ll find you that picture you needed. I have about 9 pictures from pinterest on my boards myself.
// DON’T rush it // It took my mum and I three days to do ours. The reason behind is that we wanted to have a fun and chilled time with it. We were sat for 2 hours flicking through magazines and cutting things out, and then we sort of got enough and took a break. If you don’t enjoy it then have a break and return when you feel like it.
// make it a cozy activity // Whilst we were cutting, chopping and gluing cut outs we were listing to music, had our log burner on, sipping on tea and eating snacks. It made everything feel so much more cozy. So, we can only recommend you to do that as well.
That’s everything for today’s post. If you enjoyed it please give it a like and let me know in the comments:
