A new day has adjourn – it’s the beginning of a New Year –
As we leave 2010 let us take the positive forward leaving the negative to fade into the past
 – it’s now history!
As we move forward many of us are thinking about our goals for 2011.
Over the years,  I have written my goals on paper, imprinted them visually in my mind,
putting the paper in a  ‘safe place’.  
I marvel at the achievements at the end of each year.
Today, I shall embark on a new journey –
the creation of a ‘Vision Board’

What is a Vision Board?
A Vision Board is a poster or cork board on which you paste images that you have torn out of magazines, or created yourself. The idea is to surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to achieve physically, mentally and spiritually for yourself, places you want to go and the quality of life you so desire. Most importantly, what you wish to attract into your life.  
'You control your thoughts; do not let your thoughts control you! '
As I say goodbye to 2010, I look at my ‘Quilt House’,
the windows that have been closed for the season,
I look forward to opening them with great Joy.

My Rottweiler, Bella, awaits my company, he loves the music, the smell of my candle and the whirring sound of the sewing machine. He loves the peace and tranquility of positive creation.
