Want to know more about Urban Posture? Leslie and Sarah lay it all out for us - from their hobbies to their favorite crafts. We'll let them do the talking...

Who are the faces of Urban Posture? Leslie Poyzer and Sarah Wolfgang

Where do you live? Leslie lives in Brooklyn, NY and Sarah lives in good ole Des Moines.

Who do you live with - family/pets? 

Leslie: My roommate Sarah, not Sarah Wolfgang my business partner. :) I am not a pet person, there is an exception though and that is fish, but I haven't had a fish for several years now. 

Sarah: I live with my darling husband, Jacob, and our 10 month old son, Roy.

Leslie: Bake! Time in the kitchen is so relaxing to me and I also enjoy seeing the joy from the people I get to feed. I also love to knit, sew, make paper crafts, and watch Jane Austin, and BBC movies (really dorky, I know). 

Sarah: I'm constantly remodeling/re-decorating our house. I also play in my husband's band, Wolfgang. We are very involved in our church and spend a lot of time with our family. And, of course, lots of crafting!! Right now, I'm working on a Halloween custom for Roy. He's going to be an owl so his Daddy can go as Harry Potter. Jacob doesn't know this yet... ;)

What are your three favorite items to make?  

Leslie: In the terms of crafting it would be 1. knitted neck warmers 2. anything that involves paper, cardboard, and a hot glue gun 3. Christmas decor

Sarah: I don't think I have favorites - I really just enjoy the creative process. I'm the girl that loves figuring out how to make things and once the mystery is solved I kinda loose interest. I guess I'm always working on new wall art and furniture or decor.

If you could create anything else for Urban Posture, what would you make?

Leslie: Wallpaper, I love wallpaper and feel that there is a great need for more clean modern designs out there.

Sarah: Completely agree! We'd love to make Wallpaper....how do we do that?
