"What should you do to put your body to good use? Most people have no idea. A craftsman who borrows some tools will try to make the best possible use of them while they are available. Your body, too, is actually on loan to you for the time being, for the brief period left before it is taken back from you by death. Had you better not use it to practice the dharma while you can?" --The Day After You Die

I've just finished my first vision board. In fact, I couldn't even have started my diet & fitness program without one -- this is only my 2nd day.

What I did: 1. Bought a triptych (3-panels, the outer two wings can be folded in to center)foam-board at Staples. It was about $4, I think. 2.Collected several pictures from online sources, all showing old women in athletic activities, and printed them. 3.Used a restickable glue stick to paste onto the board. . . two of those pictures, a statement of my overall philosophy ("I am an athlete in training for the rest of my life"), a statement of the strategies I'm using for my program, a list of my trigger foods, a list of acceptable snacks, a chart of my goals for the current week, and my weight loss chart. All those went on the inside of the triptych. 4. On the outside panels I have two more pictures and room to add encouraging messages.

This board turned out to be fairly easy to put together and, since I used lots of bright colors, reasonably attractive. I will be using it every single day!

My goal is to complete my first collage by Jan 1, 2011.

My first step to that goal is to look for pictures and stuff the rest of October. I will find at least 1 per day.

That is super! I'll be keeping an eye out for it. I really love seeing each new creation and vision. Images are so powerful, even before getting glued onto or placed in a collage.

I made my vision collage and I just LOVE it! I can't wait to share it with you, however, it will be a few days before I can get it on a computer so I can share it. I will let you know when I do!

I'm going to get started on another one, soon! So much fun!

I really like the idea of doing a mini-book and displaying a different page each day.

I have started collecting images for a couple of "themed" collages. One for fitness, one nutrition, one motivation and one all words/quotes to inspire.

I'm going to concentrate on making each one the size of a regular piece of cardstock so I can place them in pocket protectors and put them into a book. Awesome idea~ emoticon

Wow I've learned so much. Spent much of the day browsing a seeing how others have done this. I did attempt a collage on a web site but it became so cumbersome... will try Picasa as others have mentioned. Although I don't have anything to show for my efforts I did make an attempt and am letting all I saw and learned to rest and work in me...onward... this is SO inspiring.

I have to confess that I didn't make the SoulCollage card. I did try though. I kept going through images and stuff just didn't feel right. I need more materials. But this always happens...I set a goal and it doesn't quite happen the way I planned. So I didn't make a SC card, but I did make another small monthly collage which is actually melding April and May together. I'd titled it my "Re-Ignition Plan". I posted it in my personal gallery, but I'm gonna go post it to the team gallery right now!

I'm also going to make one with ideas of rewards. I keep trying to set specific rewards for specific weights and am having such a HARD time since I don't know what I'm going to want/be in the mood for when that time comes, so I'm going to pick some things that I'd like and not let myself buy it/do it until I reach a goal of some sort. That will work for me. emoticon

I made my first Collage today, and I am so happy. It was difficult because I hadn't a clue where to start so I took the advice I read in these pages and downloaded 'Picasa' and when I finally got the hang of it ....I did it. It was very plain and simple, nothing to write home about but now I will be able to create a 'vision board' and lots more wonderful things.thank you everybody. emoticon

I've made a couple simple collages using PowerPoint. It's easy to move images and text around on the slide as long as you put each bit of text in a text box. The more text boxes, the easier. So instead of putting all quotes in one text box, put each one in a text box (that's if you're using words at all) and you can move them around easily.

Maybe you could tell yourself that it's not an assignment? Go to the team's Gallery links and check out the digital sites. Perhaps doing it online and not having to scissor and paste your collage will give you a different feel. When you're ready, Pris, give it a try.

It has been a very busy week since I have been back from spring break and it is as if I ran into concrete re-enforced brick wall laced with lead!!!!
Just now it dawned on me that maybe the reason I am having so much trouble visualizing my collage is that when I quit teaching elementary school many years ago, I swore off of doing bulletin boards!!! It is possible that deep down in this stubborn brain of mine, I am associating this assignment as a bulletin board!!!! emoticon

Collecting images is a good thing. I've put together three collages, but I still hunt. There's something therapeutic about looking for images. Trust me, I collected for months before committing to a piece. Take your time, enjoy the process.

I'm looking forward to seeing both your collages!

Oh dear me, I just found this thread! This month has been crazy and I haven't been on SP or on this team as much as I'd like to! Michelle, I can't wait to see your collage for your list. It'll be AWESOME, just as your list was. emoticon So I did a little bit of dabbling in Soul Collage a couple of weeks ago and I'd like to try it again, so I'm going to tell myself I'll make another card by next Saturday, April 3rd.

*hugs* Tamara

I am currently gathering images for my Spark List collage, so my goal is to have the collage completed by April 15th. This will be a poster board collage. Once its complete I'm going to start a digital collage, but I haven't decided on the theme for that one yet

OK, I'm game! I have my "poster board" already, and a few magazines, and haven't gone any further than that. So good idea!

By April 4th I will have my first vision collage complete.

Action steps:

Gather all materials into one place - By end of today, 3/21.

Choose and cut out pictures - By end of next Saturday, 3/27

Decide on layout and glue onto poster board - By 4/4

This is our 5th spring (at least, in my part of the world) since I started this team.

While perhaps not all of you are basking in the sunshine of spring, March heralds the seasonal shift into new beginnings. Fresh starts. New growth. Hope

Our team is mature; our commitment is Sparked; our hearts are encouraged (did you know the origin of "courage" is heart?); our goals are desired.

Now, we need to get all that from the inside out: Let's make your Vision Collage!

(Optional) To encourage accountability, and discourage complacency, I recommend creating a self-challenge, especially if you are making your first Vision Collage or feeling reticent about taking the next step.

You can choose any kind of timeline you want, from setting short- and long-term goals as suggested in The Spark (and Mini-Book), to making them up from week-to-week. You can start with one, or set several at a time. What you post can relate to any goal. Your heart's desire is the limit.

Self-challenge statements can read as simple as:

"By next Sunday, I will think about and decide upon one goal for my Vision Collage."

"By April 15th, I will find three images that inspire my weight loss."

Or be as time-committed as:

"I will find a digital collage website I like by next Saturday."

"I will make a SoulCollage® card Vision Collage for 'My Healthy Eater' by April 20th and journal about it by April 30th."

Personalize it. Share a little about your goal. Receive our support, validation, and belief in you.

Then, check back with the team under this thread as you go along, both for support and accountability.

If you surpass your goal, I'll even mete out an EXTRA emoticon !
