Nose to the grindstone

ImageWell…we have been in our new place for a little over two weeks and thankfully with a lot of hard work and dedication to get things done….it feels like home. We are already venturing out on our bicycles….however I am back in the hills again and certainly have to build my lung capacity again.

So now…no excuses…need to get started BIG TIME on Urban Hobo. This week I have been putting the finishing touches on our website. Now, I have to fill it with inventory….We must get to work!

You may…or may not know…Urban Hobo is about “Artful Edibles” and handmade whimsical gifts. Our handmade gifts can be anything from our handmade tin Christmas ornaments to funky art from recycled materials or even small canvas paintings that are bright and fun. All one-of-a-kind.

Now I am gearing up since I have several orders for crosses I am making. The one shown here is a painted black & white on tin with little charms that hang. All of these crosses are handmade so no two will be exactly alike. The cross is about 8 inches long and 4 ½ inches wide. I am also making some that are plain tin with hammered look. Since I have a bunch to make, I felt this was a good place to start.

I will also have these crosses made smaller to be used as Christmas ornaments! (I know… how in the world can I be talking about Christmas four months into the year???) However, I will be starting on ornaments soon as there are several craft fairs and bazaars we would like to participate in the fall during the holiday season. One must have a lot of inventory for these events!Image

If you are interested in one of these crosses as I begin to add them on my facebook page (Urban Hobo) and launch my website, please feel free to reach out to me via email shawn@urban-hobo.com. The crosses (like the one shown) will sell for $20.00.

Aloha…Bienvenida…Bienvenue…Benvenuti…Willkommen…Welcome!

 

One of my costumes for halloween as a child was being a hobo!Welcome to our new blog…Urban Hobo! I am so excited (along with Juan) to get this part of our adventure started. We are so excited about this new path we are taking. We’ve recently made the decision to relocate to Texas and for me it is coming home. No not exactly the same…as so much has changed in the last twenty something years here…but a familiarity of small town feel in a much bigger and more populated city!

Our goal is still to blog about “right-sizing” your life and living a simpler lifestyle (I know nothing has changed about me using a favorite word of the day). However, we really wish to embrace both local and throughout the southwest great “Mom & Pop” places you should check out. Still love many of the “box stores” out there, however, you can find some of the neatest gifts, clothing, eateries  and other cool products and services from “Mom & Pop” than you could in a large corporate retail/restaurant site.

This will also be the place where we will showcase some of the “artful edibles” and unique gift items we have AND…where we might be in the Southwest at a local art/fair/market event. We would LOVE to meet you!

If you have something unique you would like to share, I would welcome you to email me so we could share on future posts.

Juan and I are excited to be here on this new path….We’re so thankful you will be here to enjoy the ride.
