post No.640 our holiday window …

Things are feeling very festive around here at Urbanic these days. We just finished installing our holiday window and I kinda want to live in it!  Every year, my friend Em and I do it together as a little ‘kick off the season’ tradition. We were literally at the shop ’till 3am and she blew me away with her creative energy and vision for this winter wonderland. I’m so lucky to have her. Today we are crazy busy setting up for Cocoa and Cupcakes (our Christmas party tomorrow night). This year is going to be *a m a z i n g*.  Our line-up is off the charts!

See you there?

post No.627 cute things on my desktop

Hope you all had an awesome Halloween.  I had my hands full yesterday with our little skunk and breakdancer.  That being said, I’m taking a candy break right now from my workday! (hee hee!)  The two pictures below have been on my desktop for a while.  I actually have this exact gumball machine in storage.  I scored it from the Rosebowl last year with the intention of doing something cute with it at Urbanic. Now that I announced that info I really need to get on it. The other pic of the favor boxes is intriguing me.  I think it’s the color story … or maybe those black stripes behind the blue. I’m planning our Urbanic holiday party right now and going to experiment to see if this color scheme could work.  (will keep you posted on both!)
