Who else wants a Vision Board?

Hey Guys,

I am so happy to share with you, my first vision board of 2017.

I put off doing my first vision board because I knew that we were going to dedicating a few hours of work time to make one late in January, so why not wait and do it on company time LOL! We had a “vision board party”, my entire team and I came together and had an amazing time designing our vision boards based on goals that we set for ourselves for the New Year. We had such a great time chatting and helping each other go through all of the magazines, the room was full of laughter, crafting, and candy all of my favorite things.

I am a HUGE advocate for vision boards, I have created at least one a year for the last 10 or so years and every year at least one of my goals manifests in my life and it is the most amazing feeling.
I strongly recommend doing your own vision board and place it somewhere that you will see it every single day.

Let me share with you why having a vision board is so important to me, a vision board is an amazing tool that you can use to help you visualize your dreams and goals. Because visualization is one of the most powerful exercises that you can do for your mind, having a vision board helps you to concentrate your thoughts on the goals that you have set for yourself with intent and images you are able to see and visualize your life and goals clearly.

Your mind is so amazing, if you concentrate on what you want in life you will get it. So if you focus on positive things you will attract positivity in your life. But if you focus on negative things you will get more negativity in your life. So focusing your mind on your goals should have a positive feeling behind them and seeing them in front of you every day will associate positivity and allow for them to start manifesting in your life.

“WHAT WE THINK, WE BECOME.” – Buddha

But don’t just think these things will poof and manifest out of thin air, there are some actions that you will need to take. Trust me I wish my vision board could magically bring me all of the amazing things but that is not how it works. You will need to take small steps to help you reach your goals. If you want me to go into more detail on how this works, please leave me a comment below.

Hopefully, me sharing my vision board with you will inspire you to create your own. If you want a step by step guide on how to create your own vision board, please make sure you are receiving my newsletters.

I hope your year is off to a great start, I know mine is.

Savvy DIY: Knock-off Wildfox Sweatshirt

Savvy DIY-Knock Off Wildfox

Hello everyone!

So have you all seen those super fabulous WildFox sweatshirts with the  glittery heart?  You know the ones that cost about $150.00 (CRAZY, right?).

Ever since I saw the Wildfox sweatshirt on this chick that I ran in to at UTC mall back in October I wanted one, but I am not the one to  pay $150.00 for an oversized cotton sweatshirt with glitter on it. I tried to find a cheaper version of the sweatshirt, but I had no luck. So I figured I am a very savvy and creative person, so how can I go about making one for myself? Well first and foremost I figured all I needed was an oversized cotton sweatshirt, some glitter and something to hold the glitter in place. So I set out on a mission to make it happen. First I went to Joanne’s Fabric, and of course picked the brains of the helpful employees in the store and they helped me come up with the process of how I was going to make this happen.

Apparently all I needed to make my own sweatshirt was only four items:

  1. Cotton Sweatshirt of my choice (I got mine from Walmart for about $5.00)
  2. Glitter in the color of my choice
  3. Large heart stencil
  4. Fabric Glue

And here is the process that I used to make my sweatshirt:

  1. I placed my sweatshirt on a hard flat surface, and made sure it was smooth and had no wrinkles.
  2. I placed my heart stencil on my sweatshirt were I wanted the heart to be, and then I taped it on to the sweatshirt so that it would not move.
  3. In a bowl I mixed my glitter and fabric glue to make a glittery paste.
  4. Apply the glitter paste with a large paint brush or sponge.
  5. Let  it dry for about 20 minutes or if you are inpatient like me use a hairdryer to speed up the process.
  6. If there are any bald spots in your heart after you let it dry for a while, go back in and fill them in with more glittery paste.
  7.  Now let it dry for a few hours
  8. Cut the neck of the sweatshirt so that it has that off the shoulder kind of look.

And there you have it a FABULOUS knock-off Wildfox sweatshirt.

I loved my sweatshirt so much that I had all of the ladies at work make there own, and they came out so fabulous!

P.S. I have also learned that I am not the only one who wanted a cheaper version of this sweatshirt and figured out how to make it. You can also find DIY for this sweatshirt on YouTube.
