    Hello Kim,
    I love the simplicity of board #2.

    The fact that it has birds grabbed my attention also

    For me, a too cluttered board does not work. I have to be able to really see each inspiring item to really appreciate it.

    I don’t think as clearly in a cluttered room…same principle applies.

    Great choices..thanks for sharing

    hey those pins on the grey and yellow one, are neat, I wonder if they’re the same type used to pin specimens down for dissection? If they are, I think this is a much better use for them!

    For me, most of the boards have too much stuff on them…a little overwhelming but I do love the gray and yellow board and the one with the teal, butterflies and birds.
    Thanks for sharing!!

    I wish I knew how to put a picture of it here :) so I could show it off!
    But I love all of these! I may just have to get inspired to do another one.

    Great ideas! I bought some supplies {years ago} for an inspiration board and never followed through with it. Now I want to get started! I’m including the link to this post on my site. Thank you.

    Love this post!! I always tear inspirational finds out of magazines and pin them on my wall. Right now I have two rows of sting up with nails and photos, cards and magazine clippings up with mini clothes pins.

    I love being surrounded by inspirational and beautiful things!

    My husband and I created a vision board when we were house hunting. I incorporate feng shui in my vision boards by assigning colors to the right area of the (bagua)board. In the center I cut out a house out of yellow foam board because yellow represents Family and health and is assigned to the center area in a Feng Shui bagua. We attached pictures and words of all that we were looking for in a home, nice neighbors, etc. We found a home, bought it and one day I realized this-we purchased a yellow home! And we have nice neighbors!

    These boards are all so creative, beautiful and fun. I have a bulletin board in my work space where I put ideas and things that I love, but I have not gone to this level! Thank you so much for sharing these… I’m now inspired to make my bulletin board as amazing as these.
