Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

More from CHA

I've been going through the zillion photos I took at CHA and have a few more to share -

This is the Oktoberfest Beerfest Buffet table that I did with Becky Chabot for the Designer Tablescape Challenge. It was medieval themed - castle centerpiece, hand beaded fireworks, handmade bowls, "hammered metal" stamped beer steins made with Makins Clay which laced up like beer maiden dresses, our own brands of custom beers...... ALL of the tablescapes were amazing in their own way. A truly amazing amount of work went into each and every one. Bravo to all the Designers who took this opportunity to show their stuff!

Ana Araujo & When Creativity Knocks - New Craft TV Web Program!

Ana Araujo! How could I forget to mention Ana Araujo! Ana was at CHA promoting her exciting new WebTV program - When Creativity Knocks! It sounds like it will be a great success - Ana has lots of exciting ideas for the show and so far response from the public has been great. I was fortunate enough to have dinner with Ana along with a group of fellow designers. Ana is a true joy to talk with - I love the fact that although she is a crafting "STAR" - she is still "human" and has time to talk to up and coming designers! We love you Ana!

CHA!


What an amazing show! Summer CHA was very exciting - lots of fantastic new products on the way for the crafting community. It was nice to see some new companies with fresh and original designs and products. Over the next several days I'll be sharing images of some of my favorites.

CONGRATULATIONS to GlueArts for their CHA award for the new Glue Glider! It's an amazing new adhesive gun with lots of options - use a single piece or a whole strip - glides on like a dream.

SPAARK Limited has an amazing new line of "alterable" leather albums in a variety of sizes and colors - they are "soft" & flexible, and very alterable - they can be punched with a cropodile, stamped, inked, burnished with a burning tool...... I was honored to be asked to serve on their design team and look forward to creating unique cover art for their fantastic albums!
The Robin's Nest (http://www.robinsnest-scrap.com/) was one of the new companies I was very excited to find - they have an amazing line of papers, many with touches of "bling/glitter," etc (even the "masculine papers" like the fire pattern above has GLITTER!), and coordinating products with lost of unique texture! The image above is a sneak peak - I'll be sharing lots more about their products in my next post.
Thanks to Makin's Clay for a great experience also - I demonstrated in their booth and they displayed 14 projects at their booth which I had created with their products. It was an honor to be part of the Makin's Team at CHA!

Just a sneak peak at some of the projects I've been working on with the Makins Clay generously provided for Designers to work with! I'll be bringing these, along with several other projects, with me to present at CHA.




CHA here I come!

Just 4 days to CHA! Been crazy busy with prep-work, design work, etc. but it's all worth it. Looking forward to making some great contacts, seeing old friends, and meeting new friends!

Can't wait to see all the new products the manufacturers will be releasing. Eye candy, for sure.

I'll share some of my favorites when I get back next week!
