Getting motivated for 2012, SpyGirl style

The task:
"IFB Project #28: Create A Motivational Mood Board
For this week’s project, we are challenging our community to create a motivational mood board for your blog. Gather images, quotes, outfits, any little tid-bits of inspiration, and put them together so you can visualize everything you want to achieve for yourself and your blog in 2012. You can create a physical board, using magazines and a cork board (for example) or make a collage on your computer – we just want to see your vision!"

My version:
I lay open all the SpyGirl sketchbooks that I am currently working on, plus my big project for my next art exhibition in April - May in Santa Monica.
