Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

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 almost 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!

Scrap-Fx - awesome chipart albums - loved the castle shape! Some unique ones here - check them out! http://www.scrapbookingdirect.com.au/

Zucker Feather's!  WINGS!  So much fun! Need I say more?  www.zuckerfeather.com/ 

Little Yellow Bicycle had lots of eye candy - I was happy to see some really cool "boy" products too! See their products here www.mylyb.com/


Romanoff Products had a great assortment of colorful storage options - their colofrul booth was eye catching! Loved their little star shaped boxes with covers - just adorable!  www.romanoffproducts.com/



MercArt USA metalworking tools - I am always mesmorized when I stop at their booth - here's a peak... noticing that trend I mentioned?  http://www.mercartusa.com/
Shannon Fabrics - LOVED their cuddly embossed fabrics - loved the way they did their booth too!  It was very eye catching and really focused well on the product!  http://www.shannonfabrics.com/

There's still more to come...... will try to share again tomorrow!  

More from CHA!

I've got lots more to share from CHA Anaheim!  I'm a long time fan of The Robin's Nest.  They have great quality papers with glittered and embossed accents, and I love their "Dew Drops" embellishments - Now they have even more options in Dew Drops! More colors, more package sizes, and DIAMOND shaped Dew Drops!  Wahoo!  http://www.robinsnest-scrap.com/

May Arts Ribbon  is also a favorite of mine - and I thought these funky "terry cloth" square ribbons were really fun!  http://www.mayarts.com/


Halcraft had an interesting assortment of product on display - including these appliques which fit right in with that trend I mentioned in my earlier post about CHA! http://www.halcraft.com/


One of my favorite finds was the Animal Spirit Stamps by Earth Art International!  The artwork is amazing, and the detail on these stamps is absolutely breathaking!  http://www.earthartinternational.com/
Global Solutions (http://www.globalsolutionsonline.com/)  had a booth full of tempting pewter & silver charms and embellishments - and I loved their use of muffin tins to display them! 
Stay tuned..... later today I'll be posting more great things from CHA that caught my eye!
