The Official Treasure Map of 2010 - Page 10

post #181 of 558
Oh, frames, tanyalynn that is such a great idea! Now see, why didn't you say that two days ago before I put the background colors down?
I may steal it for next year, though.

So...I still have a huh-YOOGE stack of mags to go through, but I had such a huge pile of already-cut-out stuff that I got sick of looking through, and went and did the background yesterday. I did it the same as I have done for the past 3 years. I was going to do something different, but at the last minute decided I was comfortable doing it the same.

So today I started sorting and weeding and placing, with the things I already cut out. And I went and got some photos printed. So if I leave the map like it is now, it's soooo crowded! I want more pictures and less words. I already talk too much IRL and I feel that the excess of words on the map feels "too talky".
Tomorrow, after I get back from CPR class, I will finalize it. Or maybe tonight I will drag it out again (it's under dish cloths to keep the cat from messing with it, or the wind if I have my windows open) and play with it like puzzle pieces again

I stole the tarot idea, btw; thanks for the inspiration

The light is shining on it so it's hard to see some of it.

Last years

I did the same exact layout b/c it worked for me. I'm sure one year I'll change it up. But this layout feels good to me for now.
I can't see the one from last year, but this year's looks great. I really like the red backdrop for it, and I think I might put red background (so that's it's peaking like a border) when I laminate mine next week.

Everyone has such great ideas, thanks for sharing!

Tell me how you do this? I've been trying to figure it out for years. Do you just use the laminate stuff you get at Walmart or wherever? Or do you have it done? Or do you have a laminating machine or something?
post #184 of 558
the laminating machines, some libraries might have them? I used one at the teachers resource center in town, they're better than the DIY contact paper. I have contact paper for place mats for the kids (we use their artwork)

DH wants to do one, too, but has NO time. Is it possible to create one for someone else?? (if we have discussed it and he *tells* me what he wants?)

No.
give him more time...let him build it between now and the 28th.
He might need the mercury retrograde to compell him.

Comments are welcome so don't be afraid to post on them if you want.

If you click on each picture and hover on them, I put notes on almost all of my images so you can read what my affirmation or meaning is for each one.

Yesterday and today have been emotionally challenging. DH has the boys, and is trying to get them to sleep. I can hear the youngest bouncing.
I'm having a hard time getting into the groove.
I am hoping with the help of some music and a candle things will get better.

Wednesday night felt soooo festive though. I agree IntuitiveJamie, it was like a holiday.

I feel big wonderful joyous things for this coming year.

The completed ones are SOOO pretty!

I have almost got the backgrounding done for mine. Already have some things cut out. Gonna go spend some time with my mom tonight

I always need some music on and just relax to work on mine Blue October is my FAV to listen to while doing my treasure map and it makes me do some deep thinking while im working too!

Pretty appropriate, i'd say!
and here is the last paragraph:
"Wherever crows are, there is magic. They are symbols of creation and spiritual strength. They remind us to look for opportunities to create and manifest the magic of life. They are messengers calling to us about the creation and magic that is alive within our world everyday and available to us."
That's awesome

Thanks for sharing pics mamas... I needed the motivation of seeing some completed ones. I'm finishing mine today. Going to take a refreshing shower & try to wash away the meh funk that is keeping me from being in the mood, light my favourite scented candle (it's called Uluru... very earthy and nice) and spread my stuff out on my bed to work. DH has been given strictest instructions to keep everyone away until I come out!

I love seeing the finished maps!

For those using the bagua layout, I found this site helpful: http://circle-of-light.com/fengshui/bagua-map.html
I don't think anyone has linked to it yet. Click on each section to see detail. It is helping me to get a good feel for each section as I contemplate where to place things. It's written for applying the bagua elements to your home, but easy enough to extrapolate to your map.

Just came home late last night from our incredible vacation I TM'ed last year!

Been totally out of it today, as predicted after a full travel day across multiple time zones.

I've been reading this thread to get motivated and "into" this year's treasure map, which I plan to do tomorrow.

Loving all the pictures of completed maps thus far!

I realized how powerful positive statements can be this morning when I woke up.

You see, one of the biggest "problems" in my life right now is back pain. I know it is because of being overweight, being on my feet a lot because of my job, and because the BiPap machine I use for my sleep apnea keeps me asleep, and I am in the same position all night long.

I am terrified of the chiropractor and just could not get myself to go to one, even though I wake up every single night in so much pain that sometimes I cry

So when I thought about doing a TM, this popped in to my head: My body can heal itself and my back is strong." And it was running in my head before I did my TM and then on Wednesday I actually put it on there.

And for the past three nights I have slept through the night with no pain. I have just a slight ache when I get up, which is like a 4 instead of a 10 on the pain scale. And I know these details because I keep a log by my bed

And I know it has just been three nights, but I have not been able to go through the whole night without waking up in horrific pain in months. Months!

So I am starting to really understand why people TM and how it can help. I did not really "get" it before, but the past couple of days I am getting it. I can't explain it, but it makes so much sense to me now.
post #197 of 558
Yep, that's how it can work, Bunnyflakes!

Love seeing the maps and hearing about others' progress!


Finished the gluing part of my map, letting it dry, doing the affirmations tomorrow. Feeling really good about how it came together, especially the money stuff.

But dh, who has been very patient all evening, has been reminding me that it is now 1 am Good night, all!
post #198 of 558
Very irritated because I could NOT get my trifold map idea to work . SO I just stapled it together and it LOOKS like what I had in mind, but doesn't fold up. I can live with that

Everything is glued on.. and there are spaces left to write my own affirmations. There are a couple of things I'd like to add, so I may print out pics for them and fill a few gaps Pictures upcoming after I'm finished
post #199 of 558
3 "panels" of my "bagua quilt" to finish gluing. Then to look for affirmations to write...
It's looking good, if I do say so myself.
