After reading about vision boards and dream boards yesterday, I decided to put together a dream board of my own to celebrate the New Year. Jamie Ridler Studios shows  Full Moon Dreamboards which resonated with me and are on the wavelength of what I had envisioned last night. There is great info about creating vision boards on Christine Kane’s Blog. My word for 2010 is create, with the intent of creating new work in mixed media, quilting, drawing, painting, photography, scrapbooking, book arts, and anything else that inspires me. The following words are important to me and are listed on an index card on the dream board:

Be Yourself

There are photos of family members including the cat who is trying to catch a mouse, and miscellaneous images that inspire me. Sponge Bob Squarepants is my favorite animated character - he has a sunny, positive attitude and always has fun no matter what he is doing. A favorite Sponge Bob song in my house is “It’s the best day ever, best day ever…” The background is a map of Connecticut and parts of surrounding states, with scrapbook papers filling out the edges of the 20 inch square foam core  board. Yes, I ironed the map on low heat and cut it out along Long Island Sound to fit inside the board. New York City is in the lower left corner.

Here is what tihe dining room table looked like when I was getting ready to prep the board. Looks like I have some cleaning up to do around here later as stuff seems to have spread out everywhere. This was a very empowering exercise and helped me to focus on what is important to me in the coming year.

Happy New Year!

    I like the different elements you used on this Mary! And the words are great. Is that a bookmark from the new Star Trek movie? I wanted to see that but haven’t yet, so maybe I’ll get the DVD now.

    Thank you for all the wonderful comments! I had so much fun creating this dreamboard and am hoping it will inspire me to create new work in 2010. The Star Trek bookmark says “To boldly go where no one has gone before” and I found it in my desk drawer some time ago. Happy New Year everyone!

    You make me smile! It took me a little while to find the time to sit down look at your blog… I’m so glad I did. After looking at your website, I feel very inspired to be creative. I look forward to quilting with you on Thursday. I hope the New Year has only brought more joy to your heart!
