Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – April 29, 2014

by Steven Dybvad

It looks like I’ll be running while standing in place in my cell for the next few days. Rain and thunderstorms all week, but bad weather has never stopped me in the past.
I finally finished up the last of my soap sculptures. Tuesday is when all large packages get shipped out from here, making it my last chance to get them home to my mother and grandmother for Mother’s Day. After painting them and covering them in an acrylic protective clear coat, they don’t even look like soap; they look just like little toys and trinkets bought from the store. I really enjoy my new hobby, I’m good at it, and it’s just another facet of my artistic skills. I’ve had several inmates ask me to make them things to send home to their own families, unfortunately I’ve had to turn them all down, because it takes up so much of my time that it’s just not worth it, unless it’s for one of my own loved ones.
