Dueling Darlings – What Makes you Happy – Coffee

What makes you happy?  This is the inspiration for the Dueling Darlings Duel this month.  The two hosts:  Terry L for the Dazzlers and Tami for the Divas, took the inspiration from the fact that March 10th is the International Day of Happiness.  They brainstormed about what makes people happy.  The answer was COFFEE.

Each “team” receives the same kit from their host and the duel is to see what everyone from the two teams come up with, using their kit.

Because I love coffee, I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge.

What makes me happy:  Uninterrupted time in my studio
