I’m a firm believer in the power of visualizing your dreams, it’s something we’ve been raised to do since we were little. So for Christmas this past year I decided to make Vanessa a dream board. Usually, you’re not supposed to make dream boards for anyone other than yourself but I felt like I knew her well enough to accurately display her goals/dreams.
I felt that Vanessa needed this now because she had just graduated college and was now beginning a new stage in life. Some dream boards are focused on one single goal, but I decided to make this one broad. I went online and found a boarding pass template and customized it to show that she was boarding to NYC for the internship she’s been wanting. (Which she found out she got a few weeks later!!!yay!) you can find the template here. I then added pictures of her goals, travel, marriage, etc. And lastly, some pictures that accurately represented her style.
- Silk Fabric
- Fur Fabric
- Printed Photos (on photo paper)
- Magazine Clippings
- Decorative String
- Polaroid Cutouts
- Decorative Stickers
(All of the materials purchased were from Hobby Lobby)
Ideas for what to include on your dream board:
- Career goals
- Favorite color scheme
- Favorite fabrics (silk, fur, etc..)
- Current and attainable goals (graduation, internship, job, etc)
- Recreational goals (traveling, sports, etc.)
- Quotes that you’ll ACTUALLY follow (don’t just add something cheesy because it looks good, remember–this is a reminder for you)
- Milestones (marriage, family, etc)
- Future ‘souvenirs’ (for example, the plane ticket)
*To make the background fabric flowy and not so static I just loosely stapled it to the back. The rest of the materials were glued with a hot glue gun and/or posted with decorative tape.
Hope this DIY helped/inspired you to make your own, I would love to see pictures of how yours came out if it did 🙂
