The world of Jeanne Cassanova

Aren't these amazing?! While sourcing new items for my Jenn Loves page on www.furochic.com, I came across these miniature works of art by Jeanne Cassanova. I love the way each one is a world of it's own with sparkles, trinkets, vintage findings and little surprises. Each art corsage comes with a pin on the back to decorate your lapel, sweaters, bags etc... I like the idea of pinning one onto the outside of a fabric gift wrap to embellish a gift, and becoming a little extra gift to treasure. There will be 15 designs available by Feb 15th at www.furochic.com.

Happy New Year Everyone! I know it's January 20th but to me it feels like this is the day of new beginnings. A new president, a new hope, new inspiration, and a sense that anything is possible and dreams do come true! There's nothing more exciting than seeing history being made in a positive way that moves us to live our best life with an open minded attitude and compassion for others. So, I will take this opportunity to wish everyone success in love, life and all creative endeavours for 2009.

New website

I never thought I would be relaunching a new website so soon but as my business constantly evolves I find there is a need to rethink, and start fresh. The inspiration is my upcoming book, Wrapagami, published by St Martin's Griffen and in stores the Summer 2009. It is a book on the art of wrapping with fabric and features Furochic in action. More about the book later except to say that it was the most fun and satisfying creative endeavour I have ever done! So the site is almost done with a few new additions, I am now officially a You Tuber and Blogger. It feels good to take the plunge into the wonders of the internet.
