Dream Boards

I went to the craft store yesterday and I’m amazed that I left minus only $30.00.  I am like a kid in a candy store & it is so hard to choose!  I left with some new paint, papers, foam board, fat quarters and stickers (it was a good sale!).










I needed to go because I’m working on some journal totes and needed interfacing


And I also wanted to work on a Dream Board, often called Vision Boards.  I have done these for years but can never get mine looking like those that I’ve seen as examples.  I can’t clutter my board ~ I suppose because my dream is simplicity.  I did add some “clutter” through painting the background first.  Well, painting sounds like I’m a real artist ~ I scribbled some paint on the board.




I used oil pastels to draw a vase with a few flowers (because that’s all I can draw besides a coffee cup and lightbulb!) and put a “yoga” lady in the center to represent me as a balanced foundation ~ because this is a DREAM board.


My flowers had hope, imagine & dream.






I added a cross charm, some ribbon on the edges (not shown here), lots of glitter and a “balanced” definition.  Also not shown here are the pictures and words around the center = my hopes for a future filled with abundance in authenticity, wholeness, dancing in the waves and creative endeavors.

What gets your creative juices flowing?


  1. That's a gorgeous dreamboard. I particularly like the colours you have chosen.

  2. wow i love your blog! I am your newest follower from Sunday Social :) Have a great day!

  3. My vision board looks nothing like yours. You obviously devoted time and focused on decor and beauty. Not, I. So, I guess you get my creative juices flowing, 'cause I'm now motivated to spend some time redoing mine. Yes, I think it's a great idea for me. Thanks so much.

  4. Thank you all for coming by and such kind words!
    Myrna you made me smile:) Thank you and have fun with it! My approach to everything creative is that there are no rules so enjoy!

  5. Glitter. I love things that sparkle :)

  6. i keep my art supplies well stocked, but I don't spend a lot money on this. I buy things on clearance, at rummage sales and at resale stores. I also hang on to broken pieces jewelery, buttons, interesting fabric scraps and things found in nature. Oftentimes an item or color scheme or texture will inspire an idea. I have lots of works in progress and find that putting something away for a while can evoke a whole new perspective. Jenny

  7. I agree Jenny ~ sometimes I need a break from it all to come back rejuvenated!

  8. Love your blog! I got chills up my spine because I have been wanting to really get into journaling -- the Carl Jung quote hits home for me. I am following you back from hop. I am your newest follower! I'm so happy to have found you!

  9. Welcome! I'm glad you are here too! You will have gorgeous journals with your talent!

  10. This is very cool! Nothing gets my creative juices flowing like music. I'm inspired by it daily.

    Thanks for stoping by my blog on my birthdday. I appreciate it!
