End of the day – It’s Okay To Be Smart

Thursday, January 7, 2021

My apologies for the confusion regarding the soap carvings we are going to be doing next week! I had edited yesterday’s post and it didn’t update! Please send a couple of bars of Ivory Soap for next Tuesday. We are going to be making carvings for our Copper Inuit unit. Ivory soap is the best to use for carving. Bringing two allows for a spare incase there is a mishap with the first!
