Portfolio: Samples of our work
Dewi has been merrily toiling away in the fields of writing and editing for nearly a decade. Helping entrepreneurs find a distinct voice is one of the great joys of her work. She has degrees in both anthropology and nonfiction writing, but don't let all that fancy book learnin' fool you -- Dewi is happiest curled up watching old episodes of Mr. Bean with her kids.
Soap. Quick, what did you just think of when you read that plain little unassuming word just now? Too much pressure? No problem, letís try one more time: soap.
I'm guessing images of white or perhaps pale mint green bars floated across your periphery. Perhaps you even got a little crazy and conjured images of the liquid variety: the gelatinous squish of hand soap or the multi-hued bubbles of a kitchen sink full of suds.
But what if I told you that soap could evoke the salty-caramel aromas of a beach boardwalk on a summer day, the snap of a pickle, or the comfort of a hot bowl of mac-n-cheese - the perfect after-school snack on a chilly afternoon.
Sound crazy? Well maybe it is, a little. But here at LoveLeeSoaps, we believe that those little collections of suds and fragrances we use to get our bodies clean every day donít have to be pedestrian or mundane - they can be more than unassuming rectangles of nothingness.
The only thing that equals our unparalleled commitment to redecorating your daily clean-machine routine is our unparalleled commitment to high standards. Each LoveLeeSoaps creation begins with only the best soap bases and fragrance oils. And while you may find birdies, robots and all manner of whimsy in your soap dish, we promise that if you stick to LoveLeeSoaps, what youíll never find is sodium lauryl sulfate or other harsh foaming agents.
And because that bath or shower is not complete until youíre soft, smooth, and fully moisturized, LoveLeeSoaps also offers a delicious array of whipped body butters.
So whether youíre pampering yourself or putting together the best birthday, hostess, bridal or baby shower gift ever, look no further than LoveLeeSoaps for some good, clean fun. LoveLeeSoaps: putting the splash back in bath time.
Grace, not perfection.
Emily Ley likes to keep things simple. But when you're a busy wife, mother, and entrepreneur, sometimes "simple" becomes less of an actual possibility and more a lofty ideal.
Which is where Emily's motto comes in: "Grace, not perfection." Emily knows the unique challenges that face today's working mothers, and she has created a thoughtful, entirely new enterprise that allows women to organize and, yes, simplify their surroundings without sacrificing the beautiful details that make a life well-lived.
Timeless, feminine, refreshing
Emily has a style all her own, and she has the rare ability to assist others in achieving individual aesthetics that can become guiding principles for organizing life in both work and home. As you explore this blog, you will learn about Emily Ley Paper, which offers stationary and other paper goods as well as Emily Ley Creative. Emily Ley Creative consists of three main components, Making Things Happen, an annual conference designed to develop the skills and expand the minds of tenacious entrepreneurs, Making Brands Happen, the branding and design company Emily created with Laura Casey, and finally, The Stationary Academy, an annual conference for budding "paper-preneurs."
Build, build, build.
At the back of Emily's mind is always one, singular word: build. It is who she is and what she does. As a mother, she is building a life for her family. As an entrepreneur she is building her dream and watching her business grow. As a committed advocate for women striving to meet their own goals of success, she is building a foundation of knowledge to be shared with her sisters in entrepreneurship.
Emily Ley. Build a business. Build a life.

H.S. Chocolate Co.
What is it about chocolate, a smooth piece of rich chocolate, that has the ability to close eyes, unknot shoulders, and, let's face it, weaken knees? We're not talking about your run-of-the-mill, jillion-pieces-stuffed-in-a-shiny-bag convenience store grab. Bite your tongue! In our world chocolate is what it used to be, what it's meant to be. Decadent, silky, and handcrafted by people who remember peering through clean glass windows into a wonderland of confections -- each piece a gift to the eye as well as to the taste buds.
At H.S. Chocolate Co. we believe that chocolate should be an unforgettable, gourmet experience -- each bite, every bite. And as dedicated chocophiles ourselves, it is our pleasure to bring people good ol' fashioned chocolates with complex flavor profiles created by true artisans. Crafted by hand in small batches, H.S. Chocolate Co. confections are reminiscent of the sumptuous sweets of childhood but with just enough of a twist to delight sophisticated palates. We offer artisan candy bars, filled chocolates, and chocomels (flavored caramels dipped in chocolate -- they taste even better than they sound). Our treats blend classic and exotic flavors, and we always start with fresh, high-quality ingredients utilizing local purveyors whenever possible.
H.S. Chocolate Co., located in New York City, is owned and operated by MaryAnne Hoekstra-Shekar, a lifelong lover of chocolate who considers her sweet tooth a badge of honor. She has fond memories of spending time at her grandmother's small town cafe in Minnesota before and after school watching the magical creation of an array of delicious desserts. Many of the treats in the H.S. Chocolate Co. product line pay homage to MaryAnne's childhood and the memories of her favorite sweets.
So close those eyes, let your shoulders settle, and prepare to go weak in the knees. You haven't tasted chocolate until you've tasted H.S. Chocolate Co. chocolates and confections.
Thank you so much for visiting Lucky Lantern, Australiaís premier online boutique devoted to Japanese fabrics and craft supplies. My name is Michelle Jenkins and this site was born of my two greatest passions: sewing and the amazing Japanese aesthetic! When I found that I couldnít find a satisfactory range of Japanese fabrics to meet my sewing needs, I decided to open an online boutique to bring unique Japanese style to the devoted crafters of Australia!
Whether youíre looking for delicate jewel tones flecked with icicle-silver threads or bold primary colors dancing alongside an array of smiling animals, our fabric patterns will lend zest and charm to each and every craft project. Our fabrics are organized by colour, weight, theme, brand, and composition, so searching is a snap! We also offer a brilliant selection of adorable animal patches and stylish trims.
My husband often refers to my sewing room as the Time Machine, because once I cross that threshold to join my beloved machine and fabric stash Iím lost in my own beautiful universe and lose all sense of space and time. Can you relate? Then youíve come to the right place! Welcome to my world. Welcome to Lucky Lantern.
