Summer Popsicle Window at Urbanic post image

popsicle window | Urbanic I’m so excited to finally be able to share with you the pictures of our summer popsicle window here at the shop.  Our ever talented Melody Hansen came up with this creative idea and even figured out the mechanics of the install. (?!?!) She dreamt up the plan and gathered some images online. Oh Happy Day was a great source of inspiration! Together Mel and our crafty Cecily hand-made each one of these huge piñatas with the sweetest attention to detail. My job was to dip hundreds of popsicle sticks into paints in preparation to be drilled and  hung as a cascading back drop around the pops. My backyard, literally had 2 clothes’ lines full of revolving sticks. It was crazy, but admittedly  it was therapeutic.

New in the shop : The Pencil Factory post image

pp_pencilfactory It’s the little things that get us giddy with excitement around here at Urbanic - like PENCILS!   We recently got in a shipment of these Nashville assorted pencils boxes from The Pencil Factory and have become smitten with graphite delight.  Each set has an assortment of the 6 finest pencil varieties. We’re talking … bridge, carpenter, wax, no.2, round, and jumbo hex! Did we mention that they’re made here in the US, and each stamped beautifully with metallic gold foil? Okay that’s enough pencil talk for now.
