Vision Board Your 2021
I have this thing about vision boards. Do I think they hold magical powers? No. But somehow - they seem to know. This is my fourth year of pre-new year's vision boarding and while it was my hardest (thanks 2020 uncertainty) I'm still hopeful that the things I hope I can work towards in the new year.
Making them is so easy I was able to make it into a one minute TikTok video you can find at Sock Bun Studios. But if you're here from Pinterest (there's been approximately 180 thousand of you so far in the last 30 days), I'm here to help!
First you need these things:
- A foam core poster board from Dollar Tree (seriously don't pay more than $1 for these) - cut in half
- Preferably a printer and somewhere you can edit the photos to the sizes you need - you'll need 4 regular pages filled with photos
- Glue - I use Mod Podge
- Foam paintbrush
Second, you need to think of your word that you want . Just make it one word that you can put right in the middle of your board. Past words I've used are; intentional, balance, content. Then you'll need to think of 5-8 other words that you want to work on - think of those as your resolutions list items.
Once you have your words, you need to find your photos. If you're not coming from Pinterest, here's a link to my board I have many of my quotes and photos for my boards.
You'll need to fill four pages of regular 8.5x11 paper to fill the board. Once you have that, print your pages and cut out your images and place on your board.
I prefer to put the word in the middle and branch out from there because your smaller words and the photos are what help you achieve the main word you've chosen. Once you have everything in place, make sure to take a photo so that as you move things around to glue down, you can reference back if need be!
Go ahead and then glue them down! The first year I used rubber cement but since I've used Mod Podge, which you'll need a foam brush for.
Here's a look back at my other boards for some extra inspiration:
(the 2020 board I forgot to chop in half, so this is a look at a full poster board sized vision board)
Happy vision boarding! I hope 2021 is the beginning of good things again for all of us. And until then, stay safe.
