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!

The countdown is on!

Three weeks and counting to CHA! Just found out my friend and fellow Designer Becky Chabot will be able to join me at CHA after all - Wahoo! Designer Fashion Display items are almost complete. Busy working on items for Makin's Clay and Creative Charms booths, and I'll be demonstrating at both booths. My press kits are coming together. Looking forward to meeting up with people I met in Chicago and meeting new friends! Planning to attend the tapings of When Creativity Knocks, and see Carol Duvall's presentation (a long time dream of mine is to meet Carol!) It's going to be a whirlwind of a time.

My list of sponsors for the CHA Fashion Display is ever growing - and I'd like to officially say THANK YOU to the following companies for their support!

Terra Bella Finishes!

I just completed my two Designer Challenge projects for Terra Bella Finishes. Terra Bella supplied a TON of fabulous products for this challenge. It was like Christmas morning all over again when I opened the box full of Peasant Paints, Opulence, Metallic Gel Glazes, Varnish, Wood Texture, Gel Medium, Pure Color and more! These projects will be on the way tomorrow and will be displayed at CHA in February for judging. I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed every minute of working with these versatile, high quality finishes. If you are looking for new ways to add color, luster/shimmer, texture and depth to your artwork - check out their website!

I'm also busy working on my CHA Designer Fashion Display artwork. I'd like to express my thanks to the companies who have so far generously donated product for my artwork for this display!

I will share images of the finished display after CHA!
