Behold the Snow Bee!

Sometimes we just have to stop and applaud creativity. This is one of those times. Behold the Snow Bee! This snow bee is the creation of Amy Pollien. Notice it’s anatomically correct—representing all six legs PLUS antennae!

Click on the image below to see her blog with snow bee making hints (see comments). Take some time to look at her art while you’re there. She’s very talented.

Diane Davis is a creative graphic designer, textile artist and advertising designer who has been immersed in the arts as long as I’ve known her. That’s why she was top of mind when it came time to develop our new product line. Not only is Diane crafty, but she is a true professional. She is a problem solver, a great communicator, flexible and above all, knows how to have fun!

Here is a preview of her wonderful felt gift pouch creation, the blackbird.
