I am Linda. I have created The Jane Co, along with the insistence of my daughter Katie.

I have always enjoyed arts and crafts. In school, I took as many art classes as they would allow me to whether it was drawing, painting, pottery or photography. I would have to say photography is still my most favorite art form.

After both my daughters were born, I became interested in the environment. I started recycling and learning about better and cheaper ways to clean our home. I would cook from scratch. I even tried to make homemade…

I am Linda. I have created The Jane Co, along with the insistence of my daughter Katie.

I have always enjoyed arts and crafts. In school, I took as many art classes as they would allow me to whether it was drawing, painting, pottery or photography. I would have to say photography is still my most favorite art form.

After both my daughters were born, I became interested in the environment. I started recycling and learning about better and cheaper ways to clean our home. I would cook from scratch. I even tried to make homemade versions of popular processed items. My girls still give me a hard time about the pop-tarts I tried to make once.

I started to use hand-made soap. It was wonderful. It wasn't drying and harsh like commercially made soap can be. The smell was delightful. The bars seemed to last forever. My favorite place to purchase hand-made soap was from a vendor at the local Renaissance Fair. This past year, he wasn't there. Oh my, what am I going to do. There was another soap vendor, but I didn't think there's was nearly as good and a bit more expensive.

My daughter Katie, convinced me to make my own. So I did. It was an amazing process. Taking a bunch of oil and adding a nasty chemical (Lye) and ending up with a wonderful gentle bar of soap. Well, I couldn't just stop with one batch. I had to create more and more. I started giving it away as gifts but I still had ever growing soap supply. So, then my daughter Katie convinced me to start an Etsy shop to sell all my wonderful soap. You can also view my eldest daughter's Etsy shop at http://mesmire.etsy.com
