Current Projects

I’m getting ready to make costumes for the middle school Spring musical. I can hardly wait to get the patterns and get started!

The play is based on a game called Grim Fandango (a guy who was a bit of a wise guy when he was alive is caught in a limbo-type place trying to work his way into heaven, but in order to do so, he has to help save other souls…not as heavy as it sounds). It’s in an old Hollywood type of setting. The costume pattern is for a 50s roller waitress (short circle skirt with tulle petticoat and a little hat), but we will be styling them to look like art deco bell-hops. The costumes are for the dancers.

I took Marcus Buckingham’s  The Strong Life Test for Women.

I learned that I am good at taking these tests and that they are pretty accurate.

Tell me what do you think?  Here are the results. . .

My Leading Role: The Caretaker:  I am acutely aware of everyone else’s emotional state, particularly if I sense they are feeling hurt or slighted. I am instinctively inclusive, always looking for ways to draw others into the circle and make them feel wanted, heard, and appreciated.

I can be heard asking . . .  “Is everyone okay?”

My best leading role quality: My open heart

My Supporting Role: Weaver:  I see the world as a web of relationships, and I am always excited by the prospect of connecting two new people within my web.

I am always thinking. . . “Who can I connect?”

My best supporting role quality: My genuine curiosity.

Yeah! I am a SuperStar!

A Vision Board – really?

Posted on February 23rd, 2012 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, The Happiness Project

This week is about progress.  Progress in our resolutions, but also progress in our journey to happiness.

Benjamin Franklin said:

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”

Here is an article from the June 2010 issue of O Magazine on how a vision board can change your life. Martha Beck says it’s way more than sticking pics of money or a Hawaiian beach on your mirror. You have to go deeper and let go mentally and emotionally.

“To really work, a vision board has to come not from your culture but from your primordial, nonsocial self—the genetically unique animal/angel that contains your innate preferences.” – Martha Beck

Here is a link to “My Vision Board” on Pinterest. . .

Here are some of the things that appeal to my animal/angel – the innate prefered destinations on my journey:
