The Broke Socialite's Goal #2,089 : An Inspiration Board

One of the life lessons that I learned in 2008 revolved around vision...writing and organizing my goals, hopes and dreams. This is sort of how this blog came to fruition. One of my goals this new year is to tap into my creative self and further mature The Broke Socialite concept. I've seen pictures, fabric, colors, textures that inspire me to strive for my dreams. For this reason, I have decided to create an inspiration board after reading (what else?) Isaac Mizrahi's How To Have Style.

My inspiration board will begin with the fruit of a fortune cookie that I got at lunch last week. It reads: "You will soon be involved in many gatherings and parties." For a girl who loves a soiree, this is a wonderful jumpstart!

I can't wait to share it!

If you're interested in creating an inspiration board, here are some great tips!

Do you have an inspiration board? How'd you get started? If you don't currently have one, how do you catalog your thoughts and dreams?

  1. OMG! Wow great minds think alike... I am also going to create an inspiration board for 2009. However my inspiration board will be for decorating my apartment. I want to make sure that I can incorporate all my ideas in my decor. The inspiration board is also a great way to cure buyer's remorse. Finally my goal is to start buying after the board is complete. This gives me enough time to save money. Great Post!

  2. What a great post! I have been wanting to create an inspiration board for months, ever since watching The Women (the only good thing I got out of that movie) but I wasn't sure how to go about it. Thank you for the reminder and for the tips!

  3. It's funny that you wrote this post. One of my goals this year is to create an inspiration board too. I'm a visual person so I need pictures, colors, textures, etc to feel inspired to start (and complete) projects.

  4. I love your inspiration board. I recently created a 2009 Goals Collage and put it on my refrigerator. It really is great to wake up every morning and see my goals laid out. Thanks for sharing....it's looks fabulous.

  5. I do have an inspriation board! I heart it! I just completed it earlier this week. My board consists of things I want to accomplish in the the first quarter of this year and the second quarter of this year. Finally doing some remodeling is at the very top of my list...I can't wait!
