Take a Look...Here we are...

This week the EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival is hosted by Edi from Memories for Life Scrapbooks ... There are two questions to this week's Carnival but I'm going with a little of both...

1) Show your face! I love to know the artist behind the work. Show us a picture of yourself and talk about your work, life...whatever. Interview yourself if you like.
2) Okay...so you don't want to show your face...show us your studio instead. Where do you create? Do you like it/want something different? What is your favorite part about where you create?
Our Faces:
Dave













Eileen
Happily married for almost 22 years and going strong...We have 2 wonderful boys and a really good bulldog...Enough about us...

We both create in our home studio(s)...My area is in our add on room (florida room as some people call it)...Combination play room and my studio...Dave's candle studio is the dining room and kitchen...He's very neat when he creates and always cleans up his mess, unlike me who has stuff all over my section of the room...
Dave would love to have a dedicated area to create his candles and store his supplies...One day he hopes to have his own factory, filled with Dave's Homemade Serenity Candles and all the stuff that goes into creating them...
Eileen likes her little studio although she wouldn't mind it being a bit bigger, like the WHOLE room with lots of storage, tables and workspace...
So here are pictures of ...
Dave's Homemade ...

Thanks for the studio tours, Eileen! I love seeing where you both create. And you weren't kidding - your husband is very neat. Somehow I'm not seeing the resemblance between your boys and you & Dave . . . they have much better teeth and hair :)

Great post!

wow - your house looks like the studio! And I'm guessing in Florida, you don't have a second floor. I don't either.... Love the bulldog!

I laughed so hard!

I like the photo of Dave with the candles; it shows the size of the candles in relation to his size--I had no idea that they were so big.

I think it is great that you can both work on these crafts...

Happiness...

"Tell everyone you know: "My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook." And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for th e way you feel—and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good."
