Happy 2016, friends! If you’re anything like me, New Year’s Eve was spent in my PJs, and I didn’t quite make it to midnight. I think the highlight for us was the fake countdown we had on the deck at 7.30pm with sparklers, right before the kids went to bed. Tell me your New Year’s Eve was more exciting than mine?!
Anyhow, I have a little gift for you today, so even if you’re getting a bit lame in your old age like me, you can still celebrate the New Year in style.
Have you ever made a vision board? It’s a great way to keep inspiration right in front of your eyes in a really visual form. You could either use a magnetic board or a corkboard (perhaps covered in some pretty fabric or linen). Then you simply fill the board with images and words that inspire you. You might choose to display photos, paint swatches, pretty patterns, inspirational quotes, magazine clippings or more. Then put it somewhere where you’re going to see it regularly for creative inspiration.
I love the idea of putting positive words in front of me so I get an instant little “pep talk” every time I glance up from my work. So I put together some cute graphics to make a set of free motivational printables. Just download and print onto cardstock, then cut them out with a paper trimmer and pin them up on your board. You might choose to keep rotating your display throughout the year whenever you feel like a change.
I hope you love them as much as I do!
