Would you like to honor your mom or grandma or even your greatgrandmother today or this week or anytime of the year!

Then follow these 5 steps from best-selling author Joyce Schwarz,  The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life    from Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design.
 
 
FIVE STEPS TO CREATING A MOTHER'S DAY VISION BOARD!
 
1) Gather together some pictures of you and your mom together throughout the years either real photographs from old albums that are falling apart or scan some photos that you may have framed already.
 
Giftbox2 Giftboxlid1 You can use the inside top lid of a gift box as a 'shadow box' to make your Mother's Day Vision Board says Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD the secret to an extraordinary life, www.visionboard.info for free newsletter.
 
2) Make sure you have the following on hand -- a) a posterboard -- if you don't have one you can use a bulletin board or a corkboard or the inside lid of a box that may have held the robe you game mom for Mother's day! The inside lid of a nice box -- becomes almost like a Shadow Box for the Vision Board creation. You can also use an old shadow box you may have on hand.

3) You can do this with mom or grandma and your kids too. Sit down with some colored markers or crayons and do it together. Brainstorm some of the fun times you've had together with mom --here are some ideas a) going out to dinner on mother's day -- if you're going out today be sure to take a picture of mom with your family or you! Mom out gardening, mom doing some of her favorite things -- playng the piano, holding you as a baby or even finishing running her first marathon.
Tissuepaper
 
4) Paste the pictures on some colorful paper you line the inside of the box with -- maybe the colored tissue paper (pink or green or yellow that you wrapped that robe with. You can use tape or glue to hold the paper in place. If you want double up the adhesive tape so that it sticks without seeing the bits of tape. OR if you don't have tape make some glue. OR if you don't have either mix a tiny bit of flour and water together and it will form some glue for you just be careful to use just a dot of it so that it doesn't show through. BUT If it does -- don't worry you can cover that with a sticker or a little design from your kids or you. Or another picture.
 
Giftwinebox Hgtvbox Mother2 Mother1
You can use any box -- see the wine box at the left it would make a nice Mother's Day Shadow box once the wine is consumed at dinner or put on a shelf or wine cellar. See the HGTV box -- that is symbolic -- you can cut out pictures and put in flowers from the day or ribbons or whatever. And whatif you don't have any pix of mom -- well, consider doing a real nature-themed Mother's Day Vision Board with pictures of wild animals and their children like these Polar Bears and elephants. So much fun!
 
5) Pick a theme for your Mother's Day Vision Board: here are some possibilities: a) gratitude-- what are you thanking your mom for a) her guidance b) her support c) her understanding or d) just being there when no one else was.
 
a) But what if you and your mom don't get along perfectly -- don't worry most moms and daughters or sons aren't like the LEAVE IT TO BEAVER TV families of the 20th century.
 
b) If you feel more comfortable just honor your mom's heritage and her life -- include pictures of her mother and grandmother. a copy of a map of the country where her family is from such as Mexico or France or Hungary. And include pictures of your mom throughout the years -- a picture (or copy of one when she was a kid) or a copy of a wedding picutre or a copy of a picture of her holding her first grandchild etc.
 
PERFECT FOR NURSING HOME OR ASSISTED LIVING:
This kind of remembrance Vision Board is ideal for moms who are in the hospital or a rest home or in assisted living where her roommates and visitors and nurses and attendants can see mom in her prime.

How to create a personal Earth Day Vision Board by Joyce Schwarz

One of the most eco-friendly ways to celebrate Earth Day with your family, office mates and school class is to create a Vision Board.

HOW to create an eco-friendly vision board to celebrate EARTH DAY!

Blogger note, during the past few months, one of the most requested posts on this author's Amazon.com blog has been "how to create an eco-friendly vision board. So I've repeated and updated this step-by-step post in celebration of Earth Day 2009. ENJOY!

Good news, Joyce Schwarz, author,being contacted by various recycling organizations and foundation to set up workshops across the nation to show why creating Vision Boards is eco-friendly.

Shown above is Aras Baskaskas, $1 million CBS Survivor show winner who is featured in THE VISION BOARD by Joyce Schwarz talking about wellness and Yoga and the environment.
 
CARBON NEUTRAL:

 First we want to assure that the book itself --208 page, 4-color throughouts, hard cover, 100 color pix IS "carbon neutral". A quick check online shows that News Corps, who owns Collins Desing, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishing does buy eco-offset credits.  The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
REMIX: RECYCLING MAGAZINES & OTHER PRINT MATERIALS
 
Be assured by creating Vision Boards using images from old magazines and other printed material such as direct mail flyers, invitations, posters, wallpaper and even newspaper clippings, you ARE RECYCLING! 
 
There are several regional and national programs organized just to recycle magazines (more on those later, especially the ones from the MPA (Magazine Publishers Assn) and the City of New York.

SO TO START CREATING AN ECO-FRIENDLY VISION BOARD:

A) Gather old magazines, newspapers, printed materials including greeting cards, cartoons from newspapers, grocery circulars and catalogs in a large basket.

B) Be sure if you purchase any new background paper or materials that they are recycled too. Recycled posterboard is available but you may want to create your board using such eco-friendly materials as flax or organic cotton fabrics or even the back of old paintings or posters you already have on your wall--continuing the recycling circle.

C) Gather up found objects, paperclips, broken jewelry, ribbons from a birthday party or wedding shower, stamps and stickers from envelopes (you can re-attach with a glue stick later)

D) Be sure any paints or marker pens you use are also eco-friendly. In fact considering buying a whole pack of these and sharing them with your neighbors so that they can create an eco-friendly board too!
 
Or use natural materials. I've seen vision boards created with charcoal, withwaters colored by natural herbs & flowers and almost water-painted onto the board.
 
Or even consider painting (with eco-friendly paints) a large bolder or old board you find near your garage>

E) Consider making your own recycled hand-made paper from old paper --the back of old posters, the back of leftover wallpaper or even on the back of an old awning or window shade!
F) If you're framing your board, be sure to recycle an old frame that you have in your house or garage or to pick one up at a flea market or thrift store in your neighborhood.
 
G) Gather the raw materials together. Spread out an old blanket or tablecloth to cover the creation area (a table or an area of a floor or even do it outside on your patio).
 
H) Begin by making a list with your group of the Eco affirmations they would like to keep in the next year and for the rest of their lives!
 
Examples include:
I recycle everything I can.
I am recycling my kitchen scraps too now.
I turn off the water when I brush my teeth.
I have a filter for my tap water.
 I am simplifying my life.
I buy only what I absolutely need to live.
 I make my footsteps on earth as light as they can be.
I recycle for others when I see an opportunity.
 I make sure what I buy is carbon-neutral.

Pictures for your eco-board.

One of the fun ways to get the right pictures for your eco board is to make a list of those pix you'd like to see on the board such as: a) a home garden you are planting b) a method of composting you are starting in your group/family c) Past pictures of your family in the outdoors -- climbing or hiking or enjoying the earth at places you've visited --yes, even if they are near and part of your home town area. They don't have to be at an exotic location

TRAVEL -- another option is to gather some travel brochures at your local travel agency or from the travel section of your newspaper or favorite website and put those on the board planning on where you'd like to visit that IS eco-friendly.

VOLUNTEER WORK - do a bit of research and see what local groups need volunteers to help with eco-friendly work in your location. Make a call while you're creating your board -- don't wait until after the weekend or until tomorrow morning. Most groups have answering machines or voicemail or you can email them expressing interest. DO IT NOW1  Add a picture of the group's logo or pix of those past volunteers helping out humanity and the earth to your board.

DECORATE THE BOARD with natural embellishments, consider adding dried flowers or leaves, add a twig or sprinkle it with sand from your last beach visit (spread a layer of glue in a circle first and the sand will stick of course!

MAKE AN ECO-PLEDGE -- draft up an eco pledge that you type up or handwrite on a brown bag and put it on the back of your Vision Board to remind you of what your family is pledging to do that is eco-friendly for 2009 & beyond.

Set at least one day a month aside to catch up with eco-tasks like recycling, composting etc. Maybe you choose the 3rd Saturday of the month or it's the afternoon after church on the second Sunday. By setting a specific date you'll keep your eco-pledge and be living your eco-friendly live you envision on your EARTH DAY VISION BOARD!

Here is an example of how really visioning what you want out of life can help with your lifestyle decisions. ENJOY. Any questions, email: joyceschwarz@gmail.com or add your own comments to this blog post!


AN EXAMPLE OF LIVING AN ECO-FRIENDLY LIFE that a vision board solved for TV personality Aras Baskaskas the $1 million dollar winner of SURVIVOR

Today we are featuring the vision board created by CBS SURVIVOR $1 million winner, Aras Baskaskas when he was working with THE VISION BOARD author Joyce Schwarz with help by artist Annie Kaycora.
 
Note more info on Aras board is featured in THE VISION BOARD by Joyce Schwarz, Collins Design and you can sign up for a free newsletter at www.visionboard.info.

Aras vision became even greener during the creation process as he decided to design his future dream living and working environment which will feature both his planned Yoga retreat center and a living area too.
 
By creating the board Aras realized he wanted to combo his life so that work and living would be in more harmony versus having two locations for those parts of our lives as many people still do.

Take a look at Aras vision above and read more about it in THE VISION BOARD by Joyce Schwarz, www.tinyurl.com/visionboardamazon. The website for the book is www.ihaveavision.org.

Amazon Reviewer says THE VISION BOARD book Combines "THE SECRET" with a personal art project!

 Inspirational book that combines "The Secret" with a personal art project., March 24, 2009

By  Bond... James Bond "007.5" (Denver, CO) - 
Book2

What you ultimately think of this book may heavily depend on whether you think the book The Secret and the concept of the "Law of Attraction" is a highly credible law of nature, a harmless self-help approach, or a bunch of New Age smoke-and-mirrors sleight-of-hand mind-bending distortions of reality.

The "Law of Attraction" states that if you intentionally and consciously work to attract more of the things you want out of life and less of the things that you do not want, you can co-create your own reality.

 By envisioning your own personal vision of your life and creating a vision board as a visual aid, you help to add to the "good vibes" in your life and expel the "bad vibes" that you have been thinking and attracting. And then, over time, both good vibrations and bad vibrations become self-fulfilling prophecies.

Others have talked about this concept over the past centuries. Sometimes, it is referred to as fate, serendipity, karma. In Deepak Chopra's book, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence, he writes about synchronicities in life, how to have them work in your favor, and how vibration energy in one's body ties into quantum physics.

And prior to Deepak, there was Zig Ziglar's book See You at the Top: 25th Anniversary Edition, where he espouses weeding out one's own "Stinkin Thinkin" so that one can co-create one's own successes in life.

And before Zig was the whole Positive Mental Attitude craze and its endlessly marketed variations of that one concept.

Perhaps one of the earliest versions of this "ask and you shall receive" concept (of which the Law of Attraction is one of hundreds of corollaries) is a comment the French microbiologist Louis Pasteur, pioneer of the germ theory of disease, once made: "In the fields of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind." (Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.) I purposely adapted, with a generous dollop of artistic license, Louis' quote in its interpretation of "chance favors the prepared mind", just as many people have also interpreted the "ask and you shall receive" concept in countless ways.

 Except for Pasteur's quote, which was made in a purely scientific context, I see all of these as one long and varied continuum of interpretations that basically says that one must live life with goals, with vision, with defined values, with hope, with action, and intent. Otherwise, so many of us sleepwalk through large chunks of our lives.

This books helps to inspire, motivate, and instruct the reader in creating their own personal vision board.

As someone who has dozens of books that help me and inspire me to become better at oil/acrylic painting, stained/fused glass, and photography, when I first flipped through this book before proceeding to read it, it reminded me far more of an art instruction book.

In fact, the quality of the book's construction and richly colored photography of both amateur (made by non-artistic types) and professional (made by an artist) vision boards makes it as beautiful as some of my art instruction books.

 Because not everyone can be artistically inclined to create their own vision board by drawing, painting, or rendering their vision using graphics software, the book guides the reader in cutting out words and pictures from magazines to create a vision board that is basically an assemblage of collage, decoupage, and scrapbooking techniques.

 Most of the book focuses on what to include in your vision collage.
My one main complaint with the book is that some of the concepts are overhyped. To me, the book's subtitle of "The Secret To An Extraordinary Life", and the front-cover testimonial by Jack Canfield (also an author on the Law of Attraction) that "This book will change your life." present the material as something far more earthshakingly unique than I am willing to give it credit for.

In my opinion, hundreds of self-help books out there have helped countless numbers of readers just as much as they have been useless to other readers. Also, even though some people like the use of a visual aid to focus their thoughts, I prefer my visions, affirmations, and goals to be mainly in written form, in the format of a personal journal ....continued on www.amazon.com

MARIA'S IN THE PINK:

So we went online to see what Maria's been up to lately and guess what-- lots of great stuff. And we even caught her with PINK HAIR --really PINK HAIR -- look?


In the Pink -- stand-up comedian Maria Bamford shares one of her "Vision Boards" in Joyce Schwarz new book "THE VISION BOARD" set for publication, fall, 2008, by Harper Collins -- THANKS MARIA!



HERE ARE JUST SOME OR THE HEADLINES WE SAW ABOUT MARIA and where she is and what she's up to and yada yada yada. And if we're lucky the censors will be as kind to us at this blogging service as they were for the Minnesota paper who got her to talk about the wonder of her new PROSPERITY VISION BOARDS!
here's the link to that complete article:
Maria Bamford Manifests Her Destiny
Minneapolis City Pages, MN - Jul 15, 2008
Excerpt from article on Maria Bamford in the Minneapolis City pages.
In that article Maria explains she has:

"doing a lot prosperity consciousness. I have five prosperity boards going. Have you heard of that? CP: No, what's a prosperity board?
MB: Oh, my gosh! Oprah does it. Ok, let's say you want to have more trees in your life. You find a picture of a tree and put it on a poster board and put it in a place where you can see it a lot. You then manifest that tree, or maybe you just start noticing trees more.
MARIA MANIFESTS A  MICROWAVE.....
Maria goes on to explain in the Minneapolis City Pages article (note she's from Duluth originally) "So, here's an example of me manifesting something: I put a microwave on my first vision board. My sister walked by my vision board and said, “You want a fucking microwave?! That's ridiculous. I'll give you a fucking microwave!" Boom! Manifested!
Maybe the important part is showing people your vision boards. (YES MARIA AND THANKS FOR SHARING ONE OF YOUR BOARDS IN MY UPCOMING BOOK, joyce)
Maria goes on to say outrageously:
I went to a vision board weekend up an old nunnery in Montecito, and one old guy was cutting out pictures of hot ladies and guns and stacks of cash. I hope it's working out for him. If you want more pot, why not put a pot plant on a piece of paper? Maybe you'll get more.

So there is something not so new (more than 100,000 examples online) that is really perfect for making your Vision Board in a few minutes and updating your affirmations! It's called WORDLE www.wordle.net.

I could go on and on explaining how exactly to use it to create your Vision Board and/or affirmations for the day. Or how you can take screengrabs and print them out and glue to your vision board or place in your digital vision board creations but I'm not going to do that. Instead, I suggest you go over to www.wordle.net and read about this fun little app! IT"S FREE!

And to give you a peek at how it works --here's a poster I made to promo my book reading at 5 p.m. 3/13/09 @SXSW (South by Southwest) of what else THE VISION BOARD.
