I had a really bad day at work yesterday and I happened to catch a yahoo mail list of "50 ways to keep from having your worst day at work". It came just at the right time! The higher power that sent it my way at just the right time channeled my frustration into something powerful, good and peaceful and I was reminded to breathe! I quickly made this piece (here is a close up for you) with a few of the "tips" on the list that were my favorite. It made me feel more connected, grounded and I quickly stretched it on canvas for my two co-workers. It helped remind me of the balance I need in my life....

Just wanted to share some exciting news with you!!!I am in the process of setting up a website at: http://www.mitziestyles.com/ ! This will help streamline my BLOG and shop. It has been keeping me super busy this summer!! Hope you have a chance to visit soon!
I've been working hard to design the site with Surreality Studio. We have the "shop" and "BLOG" buttons live and we are working to get the rest of the site up and running. It has been an amazing process and journey this summer! Thanks to Erik- my designer extraodinaire! I would love to hear from all my fellow flyers about your process and any tips or helps you might have!

Inspiration isn't just about being inspired to be creative. It's about that warm feeling you get that makes happiness bubble up inside and brings a smile to your heart.
We are so busy living our lives, that sometimes we don't notice the tender moments in the day.
It could be song lyrics that speak to you, a smile from a stranger, a friend reaching out just to say hi, a thank you from a co-worker or spending time with those you love. The catch is not having the moments (because they are everywhere in your day!) but recognizing those moments as inspired living and savoring them for what they are.
Take some time today to remind yourself to be inspired... find those moments that settle in your soul and take time to inJOY them....

I've always believed that happiness is a choice... yet happiness is a constant struggle for the human psyche.
To me, it is a matter of settling in, getting quiet with myself, searching my soul, reaching out to the me I strive to be...
The more I do this, the more I settle in. I'm trying to have more conversations with myself- interrogate my reality...
I've been playing with some of my mixed media pieces, digitally. This piece really spoke to a quiet place in my soul, so I added the words.
I hope you enjoy it and that it speaks to you and reminds you to connect with yourself today.

Sometimes I feel that life is a "frenzy" around me. Why does time move so fast?? In the blink of an eye your kids are grown, you've lost people important to you, and time has marched on. Change is a constant in the universe...
Like the butterfly, life is everchanging, a metamorphosis of time. Remind yourself to be still, to enjoy the moments worth enjoying, to connect with yourself and the air around you.
Be still in the wings of the butterfly...
