My 2013 Vision Board

So, here is my first-ever Vision board. I still may add some stuff with a sharpie, but the pics are all up.

I made my Word of the Year the center-piece.

A bit about that. . .

When I first started reading Goddess Leonie’s stuff, I saw a big similarity in in her work and that of SARK, another inspirational woman (turns out, SARK is one of inspirations and mentors).

I bought Living Juicy many years ago, and would use it as a meditation tool from time to time. Both of these women do work that is raw, simple, even a bit childish, and present it to the world without fear. I love that. But seeing their work a lot over the past few weeks got me thinking about watercolors.

When I was in Italy, I bought this really, really nice watercolor set. Sometime during my last stay in San Diego, I apparently got rid of it. That bums me out.

I cannot draw well, certainly not half as well as my daughter does, but I always enjoyed playing with watercolors, mostly just playing with the colors. Going from a dry brush technique to pre-wetting the paper and watching the color run, mixing colors a little bit different every time, and so on.

You can’t see this very well in the picture, but the Word of the Year is in watercolor. The background was a very wet page with 2 reds and a yellow sort of randomly run together. Then I let it dry before painting the word. I don’t normally like the warm colors as well as cool ones, but I thought this word needed an “action” color, and warm colors feel more action-oriented.

The other stuff is pictures of stuff on my goals list – not everything, but stuff I could find pictures of: a couple of pics I’m using as inspiration for tattoos I want, places I want to go, a pile of money (hey, why not?). . .

The word “Me-ing” came from, of all things, an Ikea catalog. It was the intro to a section on creating your own space, but I just thought the word was interesting.

“Me-ing”

Being me?

Becoming me?

Showing me?

“Me-ing” – what does it make you think of?

If you like the stuff I’m doing, you may want to check out Goddess Leonie’s Incredible Year Workbook. She says last year, some people didn’t buy it until late in the year and still got a lot out of it. It’s only $9.95 for the life edition.

  1. Rather than make a vision board per say, I took the section of wall above my desk, added a cork board and went on a print shopping spree on etsy and put together a goals and happy place work space. I do like your water color though, I've always loved water color, which is one of the things i think that drew me to leonie.

  2. Hi, there, new friend!

    I don't really have anywhere to put a corkboard or I might have done something similar.

    And yeah, water colors can be so much fun!

    Hi Ishtar! When I saw “ME-ING” on your vision board, I first thought of being yourself – being me. Funny that that came out of an IKEA catalog.

    I cut out pictures and words for a vision collage last year, but never finished putting the collage together. Maybe I'll revisit that. Thanks for sharing yours!

  4. Love it!
    When I read “me-ing” I thought “taking time for me”. What a wonderful way to describe it.
    “What are you doing?”
    “Me-ing.”
    “Oh okay, call me when you're done.”
    🙂

  5. Karen, do it!

    Monday's Child – I love that!
