Vision Board 2018

Vision Board 2018

Do vision boards really work? 

I was never one to create vision boards.  They were too woo woo for me.  But for some reason I decided to create one last year.  I was feeling  a pull to make some changes to Fizzy Party and take it to bigger places I knew it could go.  I felt I was playing too small and wanted to go bigger.  I was also feeling like the universe was telling me to embrace what I was hearing from friends, followers and fellow bloggers.  That I should go into coaching because I'm good at motivating, inspiring and encouraging people.   So a lot of what I put on my 2018 vision board was for a direction I thought I was going to take Fizzy Party and by the end of the year decided to go in a different direction.  And not go into coaching. 

Small Steps Every Day

I added this quote to the my vision board to remind myself that taking small steps every day would bring me closer to completing my goals.  To help remind me that even though it doesn't seem like I'm making progress, I really am. This came true. I took small steps every day and made big progress. 

Taking Fizzy Party on the Road

I feel so blessed that many of Fizzy Party's followers wish they could attend my parties and craft workshops and have asked me to please come to their state so they could be a part of them.  I had a vision of renting an Airstream  because they're so cool and taking a road trip around the U.S. hosting parties where my followers lived.  Having fun connecting with you all and of course documenting it on the blog and social media.  It would have been SO fun!  

ALT Summit 

Pic Interiors and Icing 

I had so many people telling me I'm good at encouraging, motivating and inspiring people, am a strong confident person and should teach about that at a conference. I had no idea what I would teach because I'm just being me.  I seriously thought about it but every time conferences called for speakers I didn't apply. I just didn't know what I would teach about.  ALT Summit was one of the conferences that was suggested to me as one that would be a good one for me to apply to. I never did. But I did apply to Pinners Conference and am speaking there in 2019! So in a way, this came true. 

Tassels and Tastemakers 

Pic Biz Bash 

I love Tassels & Tastemakers events.  I put this on my vision board because I wanted to throw a BIG bash like Tassels & Tastemakers. Renting a big space, putting all my styling skills to work and inviting a lot of people.  Friends, Fizzy Party followers, fellow bloggers. I could picture how fun it would be.  I knew it wouldn't actually happen because those kinds of parties are expensive.  But their events push me to keep throwing parties and work my way up to throwing a big one. 

Adopting a Black Cat or Two 

We had to say good bye to our baby in May of 2017. If your a pet lover you know how much of a loss this is.  We knew we eventually wanted more kitties but needed time. I put Jasper on my vision board to remind me of this sweet baby and that we would eventually fill our home with more kitties.  In July of 2018 we welcomed black cats Healey and Austin to our family.  

Party Party 

Pic Glitter Guide 

I added this picture to my board to remind myself to host more parties. And more FUN parties.  I love hosting parties because that means connecting with my friends. I didn't host as many parties as I wanted to because I was too busy trying to figure out which direction I would take Fizzy Party in. 

Retreat in the Woods 

When I put this picture on my vision board for 2018 I was sure I would be hosting a retreat in the woods in an adorable cabin.  That's because at the beginning of 2018 I thought I was headed toward taking Fizzy Party into coaching.  That didn't happen. I decided not to go into coaching.  I still think it would be a lot of fun to host a retreat of some kind in an adorable cabin. 

Beach Picnic Styled Shoot 

I can not find this picture again. I put this on the board to represent beach trips with my husband who works far too many hours.  We did make it to the beach a few times but not as many times as I had wanted.  

Beach Retreat 


Not only did I think I was going to be hosting a retreat in the woods at an adorable cabin but I also thought I'd be hosting one at the beach.  The beach is so relaxing and renewing.  This didn't happen either.  But wouldn't that be FUN! 

Celebrate Wins 

Darling Dozen

I put this photo on my board to remind me to celebrate my wins along the way.  To be thankful and grateful for all the opportunities that came my way. 

Always Sparkle 

Pic Oh Happy Day 

I had to add this picture to my board because it represents my inner energy, sparkly personality that shines through.

Set Goals and Crush Them 

Sam's Simple D├ęcor on Etsy 

I had to add this one to my board. Pretty self-explanatory. 

I'd love to hear in the comments if you created a vision board and if you feel like they work.
