It’s International Polar Bear Day & time for a “Craftitude Adjustment”

I didn’t have a plan for today’s blog post, and then I stepped outside . . . and drove my daughter to school in the swirling snow, up & down the hills, slipping and sliding as we went. Welcome back, Polar Vortex. It also happens to be National Polar Bear Day. Coincidence? I don’t know, but polar bears sure would love this weather. And then I decided it’s all in how you look at these cold, snowy days. So, I’m sharing a few crafty critters who take this weather in stride. It’s a “Craftitude Adjustment”!

These Snow Bunnies know how to make the most of it!

And when the day is done, it’s time for Penguin Dreams. (I’m guessing he doesn’t dream about a tropical island somewhere warm!)

Let’s take a vote. When do you think you think spring weather will arrive? Or, are you already enjoying warmer weather?

Happy crafting, bundle up and have fun!

    Cute, cute, cute.
    We’re having warmer temperatures off and on but won’t be long before Spring is here……………..I hope anyway. I’m getting new growth on my roses and the grass is beginning to turn green once again.
    Enjoy your weekend

      How exciting to see signs of spring, Colleen! I am wondering if my roses have made it through our winter, and it’s probably a few months till I find out. Enjoy your weekend, too, and happy crafting! Sharon

    The skiing penguin is hilarious! Spring should be there next week instead of in late March. You have had enough cold weather already. Time for some flowers and birds.

      Thanks for the warm wishes! I know you’d ship some of that sunshine up here, if you could. I’ve heard two forecasts today — spring will be here in mid-March or it will arrive mid-April. Who knows! Sharon
