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!

Cre8time Window Display at CHA

Busy, busy, like the bees...would definitely describe these past few weeks as I finalized preparations for the winter Craft & Hobby Association trade show in Anaheim! One of the projects was this window display for the Cre8time area on the showroom floor. My concept was to create a bright, bold, eye-catching display of a sunflower field of mixed-media flowers, and I'm happy to say that Ana Araujo and I succeeded! It was fabulous! I hand-painted the 3 backdrop panels, created 6 different patterned paper & mixed-media sunflowers, and made the Elmer's foam board picket fence, complete with crackle finish using Elmer's, and easily re-assembled thanks to Velcro! FloraCraft supplied foam for the base of the garden, as well as moss to cover our ground. Ana created fun mixed-media fabric sunflowers, recycled water bottle bees, and felt squirrels holding the "Cre8time to make the flowers" sign which she hand embroidered.
