Janus is the god of the doorway, and there is nothing closer to a doorway into a new year than the month of January. Both hot and cold depending upon where in the world you are, January is a month of extremes. January rings in the new year, and it is the Thank You month. In some cultures, it is still the Christmas season.
She comes first on the calendar and brings the year in with a steadfast personality. She is symmetrical and neat. She is so wise. She is also ambitious with a loyal nature. Very sensitive, but hardworking and steady. She is family focused and loves her children. She can be very reserved and are naturally soft and gentle unless provoked. She is very healthy, but gets cold easily.
She is romantic, but has difficulty sharing it and may become jealous because she is too quiet.
She makes a magnificent designer, inventor, financial guru or musician. She loves to learn, and she loves to teach. Because she is focused and critical of errors, she is a wonderful mathematician and is usually successful in careers that include finance. Oh, and she makes a wonderful aviator.
She can be wildly witty.
The January girl is pink, pink, pink.
Capricorn and Aquarius: The earthy goat and the waterbearer.
January babies are born under the beautiful garnet sky. The garnet is steadfast and true under duress.
The garnet is available in all the colors of the rainbow, although, a blue garnet is very rare. The garnet is a crystal formation that has been used throughout history as both a gemstone and an abrasive.
Some also recognize the emerald and the rose quartz as birth stones for the January child.
The versatile carnation is found in almost all standard floral bouquets, and it is a staple of most weddings, but it really belongs to the women of January. A pretty Dianthus in pink is also that flower for those January babies.
The Chinese bestow the babes of January with Prunus Mume; a plum.
The Japanese declare the Camellia to be the best flower for the January child.

What's New in March?
The cardinals are back in the feeder, even if only for a short time as they get ready to nest. They will show up here in droves in the next month or so. The doves on the other hand, have taken over the feeder and have run off everything from woodpeckers to blue jays. It’s spring and everyone is territorial. We had one hour influx of every robin and starling in the country covering the ground, and then they were gone just as quickly as they came.
Have been really busy with adding a lot of cool coffee mugs and such to my website, as well as designing the new Just Beachy line of home accessories. In addition, I have been working very hard to start putting things together to clear out of the studio. I will be getting rid of the majority of my polymer clay as I change brands, and I will be destashing a number of findings and other such stuff that I will never have time to use.
Spring Cleaning is afoot!
On other fronts, I am working on more thimble designs. I have not put Just Beachy on it as of yet but that is a consideration for later. There are still so many projects on the board, and so little time to do them.
Collectible Thimbles: I have added a number of new designs like shamrocks and hummingbirds, and the Mother’s Day 2017 thimble now has a matching coffee mug.
Hot Rod Mugs: I am working on transferring my hotrod mugs to the website. At this point, there are a few of them at my original Etsy shop, but not on my website yet. Getting there.
You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website. www.bluemorningexpressions.com
Until next month,
Julie & Blu
Things to Look Forward To:
Hotrod magnets: I am finishing up the hotrod magnets, and I have a couple dozen done, but not featured in the shop.
Leggings: Yes, I am doing some leggings too.
Print Pieces: I am working on a range of beach theme pieces that include pillows, towels, table clothes and more. In addition, I am doing a lot of floral designs for homes and finishing my hotrods.
