HOW TO MAKE A BUTTERFLY VISION TREE TO HONOR VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY FOR VETERANS DAY 2010 by Joyce Schwarz,, business motivational speaker and bestselling author The Vision Board

by Joyce Schwarz, www.ihaveavision.org, email, thevisionboard@aol.com So you want to do something different this Veteran's Day to honor the active military men and women serving out country and of course the Veteran's in our lives or passed on? Well, we at The Vision Board Institute, www.visionboardinstitute.com were inspired by several articles we saw online on how children across the country created red, white and blue butterfly trees to honor Veterans. So we thought we would adapt this concept for something that you and your family -- or your team at work can do that goes a little bit 'beyond the board' as we say instead of the more tradiitonal dream board, vision board or treasure map to envision peace and gratitude to our troops.


1) We started by envisioning the gratitude that we have for our troops for keeping us safe. I personally thought about my dad's proud stories about serving in the air force and how excited he was when the World War II vets finally got a memorial! It was one of the great conversations of our life. And I could almost hear him kind of gruffly say Joyce you're not going to let go of perfectly good butterflies like they do at weddings are you? Nope dad, in this case I created a virtual tree over at www.scrapblog and then took a screengrab. But you could do the same at home with an old faux Christmas tree or with a branch you find in the park nearby. Or even a healthy plant.

  See a typical branch that could be used for your BUTTERFLY VISION TREE:

 TreeBranch to use as a the base for your Butterfly Vision Tree to honor Veterans and active military on Veteran's Day.

2) Next you can get a butterfly template online -- there are lots of free ones. If you have little kids -- you might want to get one of those that you color like this one above which is from freeprintablecoloringimages.com

OR see if you can find some that are red whie and blue online already or go ahead and cut them out of construction paper or if you don't have any construction paper use magazine pictures and a template or go ahead and be daring and cut them out free-hand they don't have to be perfect-- because everyone is different anyway. Image

Butterfly2 3) You can write your visions for peace or for safety or for hope and even your well wishes on any or all of them that you want. Or leave some blank so that as people visit you this week or this weekend, they can add there own visions of happiness and hope for our veterans, our active military and our country.


4) You could also cut print out the words HOPE or PEACE or LOVE and add them to your tree by cutting them up in strips.

5) Traditional wish trees in Asia often use old cloth that is cut into strips where the wishes are written on then tied in a knot on the tree branch --that's a fun way to do it too. And if weather permits is a great thing to do outdoors on the lower branches of a small tree or a bush -- just make sure you have permission from the gardener in your house!


Butterfly Vision Tree Created by bestselling author Joyce Schwarz, THE VISION BOARD book to honor veterans and active military on Veterans Day 2010. PLEASE SHARE THE VISION! for more info: www.visionboard.info

5) Tie a yellow ribbon around the tree -- we tied a virtual one.

6) Add some star decorations or maybe a bit of glitter and

7) Gather together and say your gratitudes (actual say what you ar grateful for) that isn't stuff -- like being an American citizen, like having a roof over your head like having troops that will protect us.

8) If you have pictures of active military or veterans who have served you might want to add them to the table scene you are creating.

9) Don't forget to take pictures along the way or video it so you can share it with the military and their families via the Internet or mail.

THANK YOU TO OUR TROOPS and may you always remember butterflies are FREE and we are too thanks to you !

This is the first in a series of Joyce Schwarz posts about going beyond the vision board to inspire you to realize that it's not about the board,it's really about your visions and the intentions behind and with them! Thank you for sharing the vision!
