Our intention creates our reality.
I’m all about intentional and purposeful living. You only are going to hit a target you are trying for right? One way people start to work on intentions is with a vision board.
Have you made on before?
Basically, a vision board is capturing words and/or pictures to visualize your intentions.
- HEALTH BOARD – Pictures might include running around with your kids, participating in a marathon, and types of food you want to eat.
- ORGANIZING BOARD – A focus on rooms or spaces you wish to organize.
- FAITH BOARD – Scripture, quotes, mission trips, volunteer projects you are wanting to participate in.
- FINANCE BOARD – A life debt free…..could be about how to get debt free or what life would look like debt free.
These are just a few ideas to focus on goals.
Some people use poster boards or cardstock.
I made a VISION BOARD BOOK from ……a thrifted children’s board book.
The purpose for this book was to put together a visualization of what the blog/business is – colors, branding, focus, purpose, partnerships, mission, etc. I absolutely loved the process. It really had me debating on what fits the business and what doesn’t.
Here’s what I used:

- Board Book
- Modge Podge (I used what I had but there is a matt finish as well.)
- Paint Brush or Foam Brush
- Paper Towel
- Small Cup

Here’s what I did:
- Cut out words and pictures that fit the theme of your board.
- Paint the Modge Podge onto the back of each picture, covering completely but in a thin layer, and place down on the page/board.
- Smooth the picture with your hand to remove any wrinkles, if needed.
- Let dry.
TIP- One recommendation, esp if you are doing a vision board book, is to add a background first. Cut out general background colors or textures, again from the magazine ads, to add more depth to your board. For example, I cut out some pictures that had a wood grain look to it. I first “glued” that down before I added pictures. It made the book have a jazzed up look.
Now, if anyone were to pick up the book, they could know exactly what our blog and business is about. Why is that important? It’s not like people are going to see it. That is correct however it really made me focus on what the blog is, and isn’t. I’ve always been focused on the mission and purpose, but this process just made it even more so. Plus, I felt pumped and ready to get to the specific work. Anything that didn’t quite fit……would have to go. Every decision has me thinking back to the book and the mission of the site.

Are you ready to start visualizing your goals this way?

I love this idea. I do a Vision Board Class at my art studio and I will suggest this as another method of manifesting their thoughts.

Michele, That’s so awesome. I think classes are a great way to go about making a vision board. Nice to do with others.
What a great idea, I used to make vision boards some years back. I like the idea of a book though! Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Hope to see ya next week!
