Creating Vision Boards
This is a fun, take time for yourself workshop. We will briefly talk about the Law of Attraction and the process of creating a vision board. We will then spend the rest of the time making our vision boards and socializing. I will provide foam core boards, colored paper, glue sticks, some scissors, and a number old magazines. I encourage you to bring scissors, old magazines (that you are willing to cut up), quotes, personal or family photos, etc. that inspire, motivate and/or represent what you want to create in your life and anything else that you feel you would like to place on the board.
