I Hope My One Word Intention for 2018 Inspires You #ACTION2018

Posted on January 12th, 2018 by & filed under ACTION 2018, Be Inspired, BubblrMedia, Everything Miz Meliz, I Love My LIfe, Intentional

I am going on a new adventure! Wanna come?

My intention is to thrive in every area of my life, just like last year, and all along my life’s journey.  I have always hoped to inspire you to thrive as well. This year is a little different. This year I am taking action. This year we move! Are you ready? I am! Let’s go!


It’s not a challenge, or a motivational plan. My intention for 2018 is to turn it on. To activate all the plans. To make things happen. I have been looking forward to this year for a long time. My focus has been on development and growth for the past decade and now I am ready to rock what I know and do the things I have been dreaming about.

 

My goal is to help people to realize their full potential and make their dreams come true by taking action.  #ACTION2018

I’ll use all the inspiration and motivation that got me this far to activate real change and acquire my core desires. If you are ready to do this too, awesome! If you aren’t quite there yet, I totally understand and I can guide you and support you at any point on your journey. We are all on our own path.

We will use the themes from the Daily Affirmations inspired by A Year in Bloom to keep us centered, energized, and filled with positivity and hope. These words, the card deck, the book, journal, and concept, all came from the intentions and challenges from 2017 and I am blessed and amazed at how much they are a part of everything I do. Thanks to the encouragement and support (and countless hours of help) from my best friend, Cindy Harrison, we will always have them to help us.

Cindy and I will be posting and sharing a theme for each week that we will use on our shows and incorporate in our classes, and on our websites, to unify and guide our groups and each other throughout the year. This past year we found this practice to be a wonderful way to grow our businesses as well as deepen personal relationships. We improved our self-care and brightened our outlook on life. We both feel strongly that we have all the tools we need to succeed and reach our dreams. The best part is, we want to help you do this, too!

I will keep striving to be my very best, healthiest, and happiest every day. But, more than that – – I will take action and make my dreams come true. I will take action and deliver my promises. I will take action and fulfill my destiny. I will execute the plans. I will take the initiative. I will make the first move. I am calling the shots. This is it. It’s time to activate and set the plan in motion. Let’s go! 2018 is my year of action!

I am wearing my Word for the Year on my #MyIntent MyIntent.org Bracelet as a Daily Reminder #Action2018

#ACTION2018

Be a part of it.

 

My goal is to help people to realize their full potential and make their dreams come true by taking action.  #ACTION2018

What I AM DOING

My intent is for MizMeliz.com to be a source of inspiration in 2018 and it will be my pleasure to deliver it to you through:

  • Product Reviews
  • Book Reviews
  • Author Interviews
  • Art and Entertainment
  • Event Coverage
  • Travel and Destination Highlights
  • Live shows and web series: See links to all the shows below!


“MizMeliz.com” ties together all of my passions and talents like a big bouquet of vibrant blooming flowers.

In 2017, my goal was to incorporate my love of creativity, inspiration, and connecting with people to make a positive impact. It was my intent to develop, grow, and shine, together! It was my hope for us to be at our best, healthiest, and happiest all year long! I believe we surpassed this goal. With all my heart, I believe my Year in Bloom produced a beautiful bouquet of flowers that represent every special moment that I will treasure always.

 

This year, let’s go on an adventure that takes us to the ends of the earth! There is nothing stopping us! Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” If you are dreaming of making a change, big or small, you can do it. I believe in you. I believe in myself and I believe in my dreams.

Paint with Heart – Smoke on the Water Thurs on Zoom @CindyArt0

Posted on August 31st, 2016 by & filed under ART, Events, Everything Miz Meliz, Paint with Heart

Paint with Heart presents: Smoke on the Water

…or more like a Lazy, Hazy Lake View.

Why I love Paint with Heart

Every week for the past four months, I have met Cindy online for a two (or more) hour art lesson. But it is so much more than that. It has been a way to develop our friendship while learning from each other. As the “show” gains popularity, one might think that it wouldn’t be as much fun for us because we are giving up our intimate down time we have enjoyed so much. But you know what – not at all. We love having more people to share and paint with. It is just as exciting as when we first began. Cindy comes up with new projects to work on every week. We are meeting people, being creative, and doing all the things we do best. This is our weekly chance to shine and sparkle! Come hang out with us and you will see what I mean! Our fun summer is coming to an end, but we have a lot in store for you for the fall and winter months ahead. ~Melissa Reyes

  • Let’s close this summer with reflections of special moments.

The #MandalaGuidebook a Review and Interview of Author Kathryn Costa @100Mandalas by Melissa Reyes

Posted on May 21st, 2016 by & filed under ART, Books, Everything Miz Meliz, Intentional, Mindfulness Guidance and Coaching

May 21, 2016

I want to write a syrupy sweet message of love and admiration for Kathryn Costa, as I know you would enjoy reading that as much as I would enjoy writing it, however as a book reviewer and blogger I am going to go straight to the review of her amazing new book, The Mandala Guidebook.

The Mandala Guidebook: How to Draw, Paint, and Color Expressive Mandala Art, by Kathryn Costa

13246091_10206221941562579_1465888781_nThis book could have made a beautiful coffee table book, or an instructional text book, however the author intuitively designed it to be a companion book. It seems to have been intended to carry in your book bag with your sketch book, adult coloring books, and magazines. At least that was the impression I got when I first opened the envelope and got my hands on the much anticipated guidebook by the influential and inspiring artist, teacher, mentor and, now author, Kathryn Costa. In my book bag it has traveled since that day.

Not your typical “how to draw” book, this colorful display of fine original paintings, designs, and drawings is breathtakingly beautiful and pleasantly enjoyable to peruse, gaze upon, and admire; while doing so one may gain inspiration and motivation to develop their own artistic skills and talents.

Aesthetically pleasant to hold and read, with it’s high quality pages and mesmerizing high definition photographs, The Mandala Guidebook is full of detailed instructions and in-depth information on what an artist would need to know to navigate their own mandala discovery. Deeply personal and thoughtful, Kathryn passionately shares her insights and expertise in The Mandala Guidebook, gently coaching and offering suggestions on ways that you can express yourself while enjoying the process of facilitating any level of participation in this ancient art form.

Clever, fun, delightful, and intensive, The Mandala Guidebook is the best introduction and go to manual for artists and art lovers at any point in their personal experience. Tapping into her background in Graphic Design, and over 15 years working with mandalas, Kathryn Costa brilliantly incorporates graphic design elements and principles gifting the reader with a visual literacy. As she brings them into the conversation, talking about what they see and what they can do, Kathryn demonstrates many methods offering a wide range of styles, techniques and mediums for creating beautiful mandalas.

Join Kathryn Costa for the Mandala Guidebook Launch Party

Mandala Guidebook Party Wall on Facebook: http://bit.ly/mandalaparty

I had the privilege to interview Kathryn Costa about the launch of The Mandala Guidebook on an online show that I co-host with my friend, Cindy Harrison. Sparkle and Inspire is a weekly live stream demonstration and step by step DIY class where you can watch and participate as I learn and create a decorative art project. Being a mandala artist myself, I love how we incorporate mandalas into every project. Kathryn’s influence shines through in every area of my life that has been touched by mandalas.

In the interview, Kathryn shares how she first came to know about mandalas and how she used them when she taught high school students. She explains how mandalas can create a bonding opportunity and that the idea of creating a circular design can bring people together and create community.

Kathryn describes how she was influenced by Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who discovered the significance of mandalas through his own inner work, when she decided to challenge herself and create 100 mandalas in 100 days. She explains how that experience was the starting point that has brought her to where she is now.

How I Sparkle and have been Inspired with taking Decorative Art Classes Online with Cindy Harrison

by Melissa Reyes

May 20, 2016

I have been playing around with arts and crafts most of my life, but I didn’t truly consider myself an artist until I met Cindy Harrison.

I was inspired to draw and color mandalas by Kathryn Costa, author of The Mandala Guidebook, and instigator of the 100 Mandala Challenge. I have been motivated and thoroughly enchanted with the creativity and peace that working with mandalas has brought me over the past six months.

I am an artist. I have a lot to learn, but I trust my ability and believe in my talent. Now, I have a mentor and a great friend in Cindy. We speak daily and she encourages me. We work together producing a weekly “show” on livestreaming video that is a virtual class. Anyone can watch and participate.

Cindy and I post the supply list and details for each project about a week in advance. You can see all the details and previous episodes on CindyHarrisonArt.com

 

Here is a favorite lesson on Decorative Art Tags:

Paint with Heart is a Free Online Art Class hosted by Internationally known Art Teacher, Cindy Harrison. Melissa Reyes is the co-host as well as the learner, who follows Cindy’s step by step instructions to create fun, usable, decorative art. Supply lists and descriptions of each project are posted online in advance so you can participate as you watch live when the show airs, or simply follow along with the video replays.

Please let me know if you would like to join us or is you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!
