Dennyse Harris

Firmly believing in the importance of self-love, reflection, and reconnection, Dennyse Harris is dedicated to bringing women together in a beautiful, safe environment where they have the opportunity to build relationships, exchange ideas, grow, and rejuvenate. It’s her mission to promote empowering women through events that are engaging, fun, and inspirational.

Having worked as a manager in the travel industry for more than ten years, Dennyse enjoys exploring the world and has travelled to over 38 countries with her husband. After helping her young daughter battle cancer, Dennyse reset her goals in life and began following her love for art, and her desire to connect and promote the authentic, strong, and passionate women in her life.

A top life experience for Dennyse was attending a women’s retreat in 2014.  There she reconnected with her body, her mind, and her spirit. This experience planted the seed that has led her to where she is today—sprouting a variety of retreats and events that empower, inspire, and motivate women.

In her spare time, this busy spouse and mother of two can be found enjoying the great outdoors by ski, by foot, or by boat. She also enjoys painting, photography, and pottery, and can often be found attending workshops and completing courses for personal growth, knowledge, and inspiration.  www.ublossomretreats.com

Donna Clairmont

Donna Clairmont has been hooked on sewing since she was tall enough to sit behind a sewing machine. Her mother shared all types of crafts with her … from knitting and crocheting to ceramics and painting.  None of them, however, brought the same joy as sewing – turning sheets of fabric into various creations.

Despite loving to sew, Donna didn’t start her sewing career until the mid-2000’s, after gaining exposure of her sewing skills with ornaments and gifts that she and her daughter made and sold at craft fairs.

Responding to show requests for draperies and home décor, Donna opened Clairmont Custom Draperies & Décor in 2006.  Donna says, “If it’s made out of fabric and used in a room, I can express your style and give your space new life. Her company’s slogan says it all:  Express your style…one room at a time.”

Complementing her sewing, Donna offers hardware, blinds and other products related to window treatments.   www.clairmontdraperies.com
