Hi, there! My name is Janet. Flossie’s Grand is the moniker under which I produce surface designs and illustrations. I’m a married, working mother who enjoys designing things, both professionally and at home.
Early mornings before everyone gets up, I’m sketching or working designs on my laptop because I enjoy the creative outlet. My house is often messy because instead of tidying or cleaning, I’m creating something like this “About” page when I should be doing dishes or putting away laundry. It’ll get done … eventually.
In memory of her
About the Name
Flossie’s Grand came about as I was trying to dream up a fun but elegant name for this site. My grandmother’s name was not actually Flossie but occasionally when she was getting a bit testy our family used this nickname. I got the impression she didn’t particularly love this moniker but it was a loving way for the family to let her know she was being a bit difficult or overreacting. (Which as any woman knows, we love to hear.)
As her granddaughter, I wanted to name this blog “Flossie’s Grand” in remembrance of her.
