I’m Audrey Woollen and I’m owner and creative director of Urbanic Paper Boutique in Los Angeles, CA. My husband and I opened the shop in 2006 in our Venice neighborhood and have embarked on an entrepreneurial journey of being shop owners together. It has been quite an experience so far and in the midst of it all we brought 2 little guys into our family – so now there are 4 of us Woollens behind the scenes of our little store! This blog is about happenings in Urbanic, the products we carry as well as daily design inspirations and some bits of our family life. Hope you enjoy it and feel free to drop us a line at the shop if you are interested in purchasing any of the merchandise that we carry, have a submission or even just to say hello.

to say hi,
I like happy people because they always give good things to the world!
I had the pleasure of stopping by your shop, Urbanic, on my first visit to Venice last week. Totally gorgeous and made me happy. I am dreaming to opening my own shop here in Vermont. Your space was a total inspiration and joy. Hope to visit again soon! Rachel

Love your blog!
My fiance and I are planning our January wedding and our 6 month milestone of sending out save the dates just passed. We are excited to be hand crafting most of the wedding details and were very happy with the way these came out. Thought you might like to see a fun DIY save the date project.
Thanks for taking a peek.
I love you bridal lounge 🙂 what do you put in the gift boxes for the bride? They’re so pretty.
