The Lane Lab

The official #TheLaneLab #LuxuryLaneSoap #SoapBus blog with notes from the hub of my corporate empire. Stay up to date with our continually evolving brands.


It has been forever since I posted…I am currently working on re vamping my set up and re designing how things are run around here. 2009 was a year of great progress. ♥

Thank you for your patience as I have not been posting new listing on Etsy or ArtFire. I am still filling orders, but the new projects are staying behind to curtain for a little bit longer. Excited? I know you are.

You can find me on Twitter or Facebook for a more personal experience if you’d like. Be warned, I post a lot of science fiction, geekery and general coolness.

Girls Night Out Fundraiser ♥

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Last Saturday was the “Girls Night Out” event to raise money for the South O’ Brien School Playground Fund! The turn out was AMAZING! (200+ !!) I think everyone was completely blown away by how many people attended. I donated a $150 gift basket for the silent auction and I forgot to see how much it went for…Boo. I also donated 3 door prizes but I missed who won them! THAT’S how packed full the event ended up!

I really hope this event becomes annual…As it was really neat catching up with friends I haven’t seen in forever and meeting so many new people who live right here in Primghar! ♥

A huge huge huge thank you to everyone who stopped by my booth and said hello!

Bella, Jacob and Edward inspired Twilight Soap

♥ Bella- A romantic blend of silken shea butter and cozy rice flower with light touches of musk. Notes of ginger and white tea have been added to give this scent amazing warmth and depth.

♥ Edward- A cool and delicious blend of rich vanilla whipped up with refreshing wintergreen and natural spearmint.

♥ Jacob- A masculine blend of oriander and rosemary accented with amber, oakmoss and sandalwood. A warm and sensual fragrance, but casual enough not to overwhelm the senses.

This naturally Vegan soap was handcrafted in small, cold-process batches (from scratch!) with a skin nourishing blend of all-natural ingredients, including Shea Butter, Avocado and Almond Oils.
