December Dream Board - The First One

I heard of a Dream Board 2 years ago when I subscribed to O, The Oprah Magazine. It is supposed to reflect goals - more like a vision board - but I know better. For me, my Dream Board reflects the present and cherished memories of recently lived past. I do not live in the future, because that has ended up in vain and pain for me. Why bother?

eHow describes a Dream Board as:
"A dream board, also known as a vision board, is a way of displaying and reminding yourself of your goals. Visual representations often invoke more emotion than simply writing down or speaking your aspirations aloud. The process of creating a dream board is also what makes it special; spend time thinking about what your board should contain and how you would like it represented. When your board is finished, place it in a spot where you will see it on a daily basis, and spend time vocalizing the mantra you write on it."

Each month I'll bring you a new Dream Board. O'course, it will be posted at the end of each month as I'll spend the entire month making it - collecting memories. There will be a video showing you the decorations up close and also a detailed written description so you know what I used.
