    Oh this forum is SO bad.....

    For my wallet. Not only do I find all kinds of soaping stuff I want - it keeps making me want to expand into other hobbies. I decided to try polymer clay to make soap dishes, but there are so many other cool things I have seen on YT. I started learning to crochet to make wash cloths. Now I...
