With breathless anticipation of all the loveliness to come in the New Year, we draw back the curtain of 2022 to reveal our annual Business of Bliss issue, brimming with inspiration galore. You’ll meet eight energetic entrepreneurs who followed their hearts to success and lend encouragement to women wishing to do the same. The radiant home of New Orleans lighting designer Julie Neill shines with her bespoke creations, while Dr. Christine Millar turns her myriad talents to stitching stunning replicas of historical gowns. Romance blossoms throughout the pages, with handmade Valentine cards, charming papier mâché cottages, and luxurious European-style textiles that recall bygone eras. And, to chase the chill from these frosty winter eves, a soul-warming meal served before the hearth ends on a sweet note—the perfect segue into our heart-fluttering collection of sugary confections for Cupid’s special day.
