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!

Getting "Green" For St. Patrick's Day (and a big RED announcement!)

I am SO excited to announce that I was chosen as the the Daily Windows Shades of Red Design Challenge Winner for the month of February!  In answer to their call for mixed-media projects, I created  "Le Cardinal Rouge" with textured strips of red Makin's Clay woven together, dusted with Intereference Jacquard Interference Red Pearl-Ex Pigment Powder, and layered over a piece of crackle patterned paper with bits of polka dot paper here and there, to create a background for a custom made cardinal made from scraps of red ribbon & trims, a Darice seed bead  & Judikins Diamond Glaze face, silk poinsettia leaf wing, Yasutomo Mizuhiki legs/feet wrap around a real twig.  Red velvet flowers from Creative Charms with faux crystal centers were the finishing touch of red.

First place prize is a bag of my choice from Daily Windows and $100!   I am so excited! 
Daily Window will also be having a March challenge - details will be posted at their blog:  http://dailywindow.wordpress.com/ Log in to find out more and check out their complete line of fabulous Daily Window bag options!  www.dailywindow.com
