The Happiness Box Project Display at the Upper Merion Township Library

After two weeks of putting heart and soul, dedication, and hard work into my projects, I put up the display for my Happiness Box Project at the Upper Merion Township Library. I had the right amount of mementos and stories. I’m quite proud of how the display turned out.

When I first put my display up. However, as I was working and really looking at it from a distance, I wanted to change it a little. I wanted to put the spiritual story under the books because the story tells the importance of the books and pictures. I wanted it at eye level. I also moved the Rumi quote above the framed photos because I thought it went better with the spiritual theme.

This week I want to bring my DSLR to work and get better photos… I think I want to start including my photos of all the displays I’ve done into a portfolio. The photo Terry took of me in front of my masterpiece, I’m printing out for my makeshift Happiness Box for March 2019, since I am displaying the box in the display.

I am using an old box that Nan gave me for the makeshift Happiness Box. I used to collect treasures in it and some of the “treasures” are still there, but I relocated them to a junk drawer. The treasure box really works!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You must be experiencing a tremendous sense of completion to have your Happiness Box Project display finished at the Upper Merion Township Library. Congratulations! It makes sense that when you first viewed it from a distance you noticed that it required some tweaking. The final result is a colorful, attractive exhibit of which you can be proud! You’re right. The “treasure box” Nan gave you works well as an interim Happiness Box. Once again I applaud you for doing such a splendid job on your library display. I am sure it will inspire all visitors that pass by.

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend JM!
