I’ve always had a close relationship with my Dad and tell him I love him at every opportunity I get. I know that I’m lucky to have a close-knit family and I don’t take it for granted. Despite being a busy physician, he’s always taken every opportunity to support me in my various entrepreneurial endeavors, usually driving 4 hours one way to do so! Early on into my Soapmaking obsession, he and I would even make soap together. This photo is one of my less proud moments in hairstyles but still a loving memory. My Dad and I recreated the ‘Last Supper’ painting out of soap. That took a lot of precision work and he and I laugh about it to this day. Oh, and yes, that is the Baby Jesus, in a manger that my Dad is holding. We went all out on the historical religious theme out of soap and made a full nativity set that day as well (out of soap, naturally!).
In case you missed any of the Father’s Day Projects, here they are in order:
Day One: Army Soap
Day Three: Shaving Soap
Day Four: Vintage Baseball Soap
Day Five: Stay Tuned for Day Five (hint: it’s NOT soap!)
