Reverb 10.6 Made, Making, Make

Made Making Make Kaileen Elise

Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the "right stuff" to turn our dreams into reality.
(James Womack)

Reverb 10.6 - Prompt from December 6, 2010 (Gretchen Rubin)

Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

Slideshow & Other Videos. Yesterday I finished making a slideshow for my company's holiday party. We gathered at a swanky club downtown for a night filled with celebration. There were casino games, delicious drinks and screens hanging from the ceiling that displayed our slideshow memories.

I used my new MacBook Air with an external DVD drive to create and burn the disc. After crafting a number of videos recently, I've realized that I enjoy being part of the video-making process. Perhaps this is a new hobby to cultivate in the new year?

Bulletin Board Visions. I love collecting bits and pieces of inspiration from my favorite magazines. It's a delightful ritual that feeds my imagination and encourages me to look out onto the horizon. From these pieces, I build out vision maps that summarize where I'm heading.

Recently, I've taken to tacking everything up on a bulletin board that rests behind my desk at home — and since the start of December, I've wanted to craft a new vision board for 2011. I haven't cleared time for it yet, but I intend to very soon.
