February Blog Train and Fan Freebie

Well...as I write this, we have survived the Polar Vortex that hit us this past week.  With the wind blowing yesterday, it was 40 below zero, but with the wind chill factor, it was 54 below zero.  I moved all of our horses into the barn Monday night getting ready for the "Big Freeze".  This was for me as much as it was for them.  Feeding them would be easier and faster for me, and I have one horse who gets meds twice a day for the next week and a half, so I surely didn't want to be outside in his corral to do this!  They sensed that something "bad" was coming and came in without much hesitation.  It was like Noah's Ark.  I think the barn cats liked the extra body heat, too!  If you've never been in this cold of weather, take an ice cube and squeeze it as hard as you can for as long as you can -- that's below zero weather.  Love my arctic gear!

The blog train this month is "Walk on the Wild Side".

 My FAN FREEBIE this month was with Valentine's Day in mind.  These colors are on the color palette, so you should be able to use them with other kits you pick up for the blog train.  Enjoy!

Oh, I didn't forget about the "Boo Update"!  I just took this photo yesterday.  I can't believe how fast he has grown!  He's almost 8 lbs. now at 4 months old.  With that raccoon tail and white hair growing from his ears, he is a very unusual looking kitty.  He's made quite an impression on friends and family though.  The first thing they say after their initial greeting  is "where's Boo?".  


If the weather is a bit chilly where you live,  take heart -- we're one month closer to Spring!
Happy Scrapping!

Thank you so much for the beautiful contribution to the blog train and fan freebie! Love the pic of "Boo"! Love black cats and have had 3 in my life, want another one but still have 3 cats, enough to feed right now, but am used to having 4 or 5 in the household, so who knows! I may end up with another black one soon. :D Hugs, Vicki

Fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing :) Here in South Australia this summer our top temp has been 47degC (112degF) .. while you have been freezing, we have been sweltering!! I couldn't survive where you live .. I hate the cold with a passion :(
47 deg was a bit extreme, but I still prefer the warmer weather! Keep warm!!

Thank you so much for these great gifts! I love your cat! I'm very partial to black cats. Of the 5 cats I've had as an adult, 4 have been black. There is just something about their personalities. With his size, tail and the fluffy ears I wonder if he is part Maine Coon. My daughter has one and he is HUGE!

Thank you for your beautiful kits! We recently had a week of mostly 20 to 25 below zero here (I live in northern part of Sweden) and I thought it was horrible! I hardly can imagine 40 below zero! Well when I think of it, when I was growing up, we had 35 below zero some days in the coldest winter days. As an adult I haven´t had to endure more than 25 below zero at worst.
So I really feel for you! I hope you now have better temperatures!
