The Moment is Now

I spend so much time thinking about what next that I often don't notice what I am doing at the moment. I am working on relaxing my mind so I can be open to the flow. Seems like when I am creating something the hours in my studio fly by.

My creative process, great learning resources, and ways to help the planet by repurposing are the theme of this blog. You are about to enter "the world according to Jan." Hope you find it a-musing.

What A View

Kauai was the best. On the news they would report a cold front coming in which meant it was going to be 79 instead of 81. A two degree cold front can you believe it. I loved the beaches, the whales, the sun, and my friends I went with.

Back in Oregon it is 40 degrees and raining. Good to be home, but I can feel my tan fading already.

Happy Chinese New Year

In honor of Chinese New Year, I share some ancient wisdom.

If you can't find what you want at the Asian market, you are probably shopping at the "Wong Foo King" store. Good one huh? If you are scratching your head trying to get why this is funny, say the name of the store quickly.

I really do want you to go for a run

How cute is this dog? She is totally watching me today to see when we are going exploring. I can't open my sock drawer without her jumping all around and thinking we are going into the woods.
(This makes putting the laundry away a fun task)

Well she is just going to have to wait until I get some trashy tins made to put in a shop in JC. Give me a couple of hours and we will be a running through the trees.

Getting ready for Hawaii

Spent a couple hours last night getting new items onto my Etsy site. After a few hours, I realized you are going to Hawaii next week girl. What are you doing? You need to buy some new sun clothes, get the groceries for the hubby to eat while you are gone, and shave off that winter fur on your legs. So what did I do today? Spent way to long getting my credit card PCI compliance so I will be ready for fairs in March. Well, I still have a few days before I go and it is way too nice to go shopping today. Maybe a long run with the dogs.
