Ready to set some intentional resolutions for the new year? Then come join Bloomingdale staff for a night of mindful goal-setting and take time to craft your very own vision board! A vision board is a powerful visual tool to help create daily inspiration and remind you of your passions, dreams, and goals. Magazine clippings, stickers, pictures, quotes, and more can all be used to craft your vision board and help you make the most of the year 2021!
A vision board is a visual representation of the things you want to accomplish or acquire. People create vision boards to have a constant reminder of what they are working towards. Unlike an Action Plan, a Vision Board is generally not specific and doesn’t normally focus on the ‘how’. Instead, it focuses on the ‘what’. It is a powerful visual tool that you can use as inspiration for your journey toward the life you want to live. It can help clarify your hopes, dreams, and goals. It is a way to remind yourself of your passion and your purpose. Once the Vision Board is complete, it can serve as a helpful future resource that you can use over and over again to stay on track and motivated.
What You Will Need
A large piece of construction paper or poster board (Don’t have a poster board? An old cork board or regular printer paper works just fine!)
Old magazines, Internet pictures, pamphlets, etc. (Libraries often sell their old magazines for a small fee. Ask the neighbors for old magazines. Use the Internet by searching for a specific type of image or theme. Websites such as www.istockphoto.com or Google Images are great sites to explore.)
Pens, markers, pencils
Glue, tape, or other adhesive
Any other decorating tools you’d like to use such as washi tape, stamps, stickers, found objects, glitter, etc.
Vision board templates can be found at https://www.developgoodhabits.com/vision-board-templates/.

Book Event—Pictures on the Radio: Images by David Gilkey
Join ICP for a special book program honoring the work of David Gilkey, a celebrated conflict photographer who helped NPR bring vivid life to big and small stories with global impact before he was killed on assignment in Helmand, Afghanistan in 2016.
In a new book from powerHouse, Pictures of the Radio, Gilkey’s work is highlighted, showing images taken on assignments in Afghanistan, Haiti, Gaza, and other locations around the globe while he captured conflict, natural disasters and other critical stories. The book includes recollections of Gilkey in essays by NPR correspondents who knew and worked with him, including Jason Beaubien, Ari Shapiro, David Greene, Julie McCarthy, and Eric Westervelt.
During this special event moderated by ICP’s managing director of programs, David Campany, hear from the editors of the book—Quil Lawrence and Chip Somodevilla, and Ariel Zambelich, as well as Lynsey Addario and other colleagues and long-time friends of Gilkey, for an evening celebrating the work of this important photojournalist.
This event is free. Reserve your copy of Pictures on the Radio through ICP’s shop.
