Dream Storming & Dream Boards

Kim Shaw, Jenny Aiello, & Susan Iida-Pederson

At the Kika Paprika's "Road to the Runway" event in Long Beach, CA this year guest speakers Susan and Jenny inspired us with their motivational seminar about how to live your dreams! It was such a hit we want to teach you how to do it too!


-Your best girl friends
-Coffee, Tea & Chocolate
-Magazines for cutting up
-Pen & Paper
-Glue sticks
-Poster Board (one per person or you can split it in two)
-Dreams & Imagination

1) Call your best girlfriends and tell them to bring stacks of old magazines.

1.5) Brew some coffee and tea and get the plates of chocolate treats ready for when they arrive!

2) After everyone has arrived get out your pen and paper and take a few minutes to put the "real world" aside. Ask yourself, "If I could do anything right now and there was nothing to stop me, what would it be?" Write freely! Next ask yourself, "What would I like to do, and what do I want out of life?" Write, write, write! Do you feel the adrenaline pumping?!

3) Begin sorting through the media you have gathered to find images to represent what you have written. Is it traveling to Hawaii? Look for a picture of a beach! Is it setting aside money to remodel the house? Find a photo of what the new addition will look like! Is it planing for a new baby? Find a baby photo! You get the idea.

4) Glue the images and words onto a poster board.

5) Share your boards with your girl-friends! Tell each other what you would like to do, where you would like to go, and discuss ways you can make that happen!

6) Post your dream board somewhere that you can see it every day. Either on your wall or in your closet. Remind yourself that almost anything is possible with a little planning and hard work! (I'm not sure if "winning the lottery" counts here!)
