Today was one of those days that I just needed to put down the paintbrush and spend a little time dreaming.  It was a beautifully sunny day, despite it being below -20 celsius!, and it was the perfect day to spend time working on a dream board.
I’ve had this blank memo board for quite awhile and it has been patiently waiting to be filled.  I have been wanting to fill it with cuttings that represent what I want Recreated Designs and, in turn, my life to become.  I am a very visual person and love to have things around me that not only remind me to keep working towards my goals but that remind me of how far I have come.One of my favourite quotes, that was perfect to start the board off, was this quote by Oscar Hammerstein… I wanted the board to be a reminder of everything that I love, that I hope my company becomes and of the faith that I have that they will come to pass.
To start off, I began cutting out pictures and words that resonated with me when I saw them.
 Here are some of my favourites that I found…
And my very favourite that seemed to sum up everything.  🙂Once I had a pile of cuttings I realized that there were not enough “spaces” to tuck them all in so added some additional lines with hemp sting.After the additional string was attached,  I played with all of the pictures and words until I got an arrangement that I loved.  This is what I ended up with… I hung the board in my work area and know, that each day when I look at it, I will be reminded of all that has been and all that will be with Recreated Designs!

I have 2 lovely thoughts, I would love to hear yours.

  1. I love how you clipped out words to give you some visual inspiration. I think there's something powerful in taking that in each day. 🙂

    • Thanks! I totally agree; there is something so powerful about seeing these every day and having them imprinted on your mind and spirit. Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂
