ON THE COVER: In celebration of
reopening Retail on the Avenues, we
feature Beverly Kelly-Carfagno, Muddy
Creek Soap Company, Handcrafted &
Organic Soaps, Bath & Body Products.
Bev founded Muddy Creek after years
of buying handmade soaps at craft
shows due to sensitive skin. "I began
to research and study how to make
soaps. After my first attempt, I realized
this was my destiny! I would work on
soaps at night and weekends because I
had a full time job at that time. It was
also a way for me to relax and enjoy
something I loved doing," said Bev.
