OLW blog hop: vision board


Every single month when it’s time for another One Little Word blog hop, I say something to myself like, “How on earth is it … already?” I suppose I’ll spare you this time and just think it to myself.

Hello to those of you blog-hopping today! This blog hop is my favorite part of Ali Edwards’ One Little Word class. This month Ali asked us to create a vision board for our word (stillness is my word for this year).

“The board itself doesn’t impact reality; what changes your life is the process of creating the images – combinations of objects and events that will stick in your subconscious mind and steer your choices toward making the vision real.” ~ Martha Beck

Since I just created a very busy board in January that ended up being about the creative process and art and since last year’s vision board was just ask busy, I decided to keep this one simple. Sometimes the space between the words and images is important, don’t you think? This one comes mainly from images I was drawn to in the recent Crate and Barrel and J. Jill catalogs, with a bit of Oprah thrown in for good measure. 🙂 I find that I can’t seem to keep the search for stillness images in mind while I’m reading a magazine… I actually have to look through it twice!
Apparently, it’s true that I’m drawn to soft textures, comforting cups if coffee or tea, and sleep.

  5. Oh your board looks still and nourishing. There are times I miss catalogs just for the inspiration. Oprah is the only non specialized magazine I read do love it.
