Rainy Weekend Projects.....

Hello All, Hope you are all doing well. I am getting ready to release some new Bath & Beauty products for my Spring/Summer Line-up and I decided on the final packaging designs last evening so I thought I would share some of them the beautiful handmade boxes with you. Yes, I made all of them which truly makes this so much more special.





Aren't they Lovely? I cannot wait for the product reveal also that will be coming in the next week or so!!

Until then, I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Many Blessings,

L Dawn Stanley

Spring time Goodness.....


I was trying out several different ideas for my "Bubble Bath Fizzies" and this is what I finally decided on for my Spring Release!!




I handmade the little Tea Cups from Cardstock and then stamped and colored the little Strawberries to go with the scent of these Wonderful little cups of Goodness. These are my Strawberry& Campaign Bubble Bath Fizzies that I am getting ready to post for sale!!

Wouldn't this be awesome to receive in your Easter Basket or given as a Special Mothers Days Gift?

On to my next packaging project!!

Happy Monday All!!

Crazy Weekend...

Well, it was a boo boo weekend for me. I tried 3 times to make the same simple recipe I have made in the past for my soapy cup cakes and all three failed. Either the base didnt turn out right or the frosting totally flattened!! I was so frustrated.....but, I will be the little engine that could and will try again later this week!!! I really think it had something to do with the Humidity as we got up in the 50's here this weekend! It started melting all the snow finally. We shall see and will keep you all posted at my success!!

On a brighter note I did manage to make a brand new soap loaf scented in Gardenia... the colors morphed on me but I kind of like how it turned out. I will be posting photos later this week as well.


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and now on to the "normal"  work week......

Have coffee in hand!!!

Busy Bee.....


My day job has been quite challenging with the recent storm so if I cannot post for a few days, please please forgive me!!

My latest conquest has been making lip balms....so many flavors to choose from...my favorite of course I cannot locate yet but searching I am.....I will find you raspberry!!!! I will say making the "Rolo" inspired balms are so far the absolute creamiest ( I mean who doesn't love caramel and chocolate?!?!?) I will be posting pics very soon so keep watching!!

Many Blessings!!!

Until next time.....

P.S. I forgot to mention, check out the new page tab linked to my Facebook....very exciting!!

Soap, Soap, Soap and more Soap...Yeah!!!

Hello All, well another successful bar of soap made. I absolutely love how this in the pot swirl turned out. I have watched tons of YouTube videos on this technique and was really very nervous to try it because I thought it would just meld together....but guess what?  It Worked!!!!!

This one is scented in Coolwater and my youngest son already has dibs on the first bar when it is fully cured in about 3-4 weeks!!!

Now I have to figure out some really "Cool" packaging for this one....hhhmmm, maybe a handmade box with blue waves?




Hope you all are having a wonderful week!!

Till next time,

Creativity at its Best!!!

Working on making my own packaging and labeling, This is the fun creative part!!

I have so many designer papers to choose from to make bath bomb and soap boxes that I just cant decide. I know ...such a dilemma right? Well, I think I have decided to do some seasonal boxes for an exclusive line I am getting ready to do this year and then pick one color for everyday products.

Now everyone knows my favorite color is green but the labeling in that color it going to be the tricky part!!! Ah Ha, I think I have that figured out as well.

I will post pics later once I get it all together.

Wish me Luck!!

Happy Hump Day All.

Its a New Year!!!

I love all things crafty and handmade. One of my passions is of course is making greeting cards, hand crafted photos albums, designer altered boxes of all types, hoarding designer papers and collections from all types of Vendors (like..Echo Park, Graphic 45, Heartfelt Creations....oh the list just goes on and on) but I have a deep down secret passion this year.

What is my deep down secret passion you ask? Well, making homemade soaps with tons of bubbles and creative designs and wonderful scents that make washing from your lashes all the way down to your toes heaps of fun. Large luscious bath bombs made with yummy butters and oils that nourish your skin. Bubble bath bars and bubble bombs that make bath time truly relaxing and rejuvenating and even fun for the kids......this is just to name a few.

So, my New Years resolution is to go back to my passions and start my business over again with a totally new positive outlook.

I have reopened my Facebook Page and will be listing all new bath treats for sale in the upcoming week. Watch for weekly posts and sale specials!! Every new product I make will leave you with a smile and warmth in your heart.

Hope to see you all there.

Many Blessings!!

Have a Fabulously Bubbly week everyone!!
