This month's DCC Blog Hop theme Happiness!

Usually for the blog hop I create a crafty design with stepouts, this week was incredibly full and left me scrambling late this evening on what to do for the hop. Two months ago I opened a Bed and Breakfast in a heritage home in my very pretty city Fredericton, NB, Quartermain House B&B. This past week I hosted guests staying for UNB graduation, hosted a Red Hat special birthday party in the Parlor, helped host our local Women in Business and decorated for the ACFA Cat Show.

i also thought about how do I define HAPPINESS, creating makes me happy, it is an energy that feels like a big smile inside, creating to share for others to enjoy and so here is to a very special Happy week!

For each event I created food and decor. More than that though was the common thread through the creativity of this week, the people, the gatherings and the celebrations. There was laughter and smiles, hugs among friends, proud and beaming parents chatting across the table mixed with the aroma of fragrant French toast and rich coffee. There was HAPPINESS!

Two of our lovely Women in Business members modelling my "Shirt Tail" Aprons made from men's shirts, each with a story for a day of the week!

My simple wreath created with a foam wreath, ribbon and cardstock welcoming my visiting UNB graduate parents and their accomplished grads!

To HAPPINESS, to those moments, to that feeling, to those times that make our hearts & spirits sing! To the Joy, to life's celebrations! for more Happiness just hop along with our DCC, Designer Crafts Connection button in the sidebar!
