I love plants and flowers, but I hate paying $10 for a bouquet of flowers that will last a few days! As for plants, I have a lovely selction, but they're outside, because Oliver likes to eat plants. So, when I saw Jane Joss, I thought, perfect! Plants that don't die, can be changed seasonally, and Oliver can't destroy! Hurray! Read on for an interview with the women behind Jane Joss and a free shipping code!
Tell me some basic info about yourself.
Jane Joss is an alias for Alyssa & Joslyn Krismer. We are sisters-in-law, best friends, and both mothers of two. We started Jane Joss in January of 2009 and are having a blast!
What made you decide to sell on etsy?
It just seemed like the perfect fit for what we were creating. We were, at the time, completely clueless about selling handmade goods. When we were convo'ed about a custom order within 15 minutes of posting our first listing we knew we were in the right place!
Where do you get your inspiration?
Nature, of course, was our initial inspiration. Now that we have our basic designs created, fabric is our biggest inspiration. We love finding new styles, designs, textures, and color combinations.
What is your favorite music to craft by?
I have to admit I craft listening to the television!
When it's cold outside... it means I get to wear a great jacket!
When I'm hungry... I try to ignore it, then head straight for the kitchen.
When I need a boost... have a girls night out.
I wish I was/were... on vacation.
If I could give one gift to everyone I know, it would be... a book.
If I could have coffee with anyone, it would be... my grandma.
If you were an animal, what would you be? a cat. I love naps!
What's your favorite piece of your own?
A mother-in-law's tongue plant made from a striped green fabric. It is so fun and unique.
What are your favorite blogs/websites right now?
I honestly don't read online much, but we love Design*Sponge, BHG.com, and any blog that features us! I am kind of addicted to eonline. Oh, Joslyn started a blog for our book club!
