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!

"Cow Country" Table Runner with Kunin® Group, Buttons Galore & More & Beacon Adhesives


I was happy to have the chance to be a part of the Kunin™ Group, Buttons Galore & More and Beacon® Adhesives Designer Craft Connection blog hop!   My felt package arrived and I couldn’t have been happier - our kitchen & dining room has a “farm animal” theme with cows, chickens and more as accents.  The cow patterned felt was a perfect fit!  Paired with BurlapFabric.com fabric, I was able to create a table runner for our table that fits right in with our country decor.  Be sure to follow the DCC link in the right column to see what other creative projects our designers are sharing.
