Ugly Baby Interview +Giveaway

This morning, after a very busy but fun weekend, I was standing in the shower still half-asleep and wishing it wasn’t Monday. I realized I was all clean and so logically I got out, but what if there had been more to do in there? Imagine it, what if there was art to look at in the shower! Crazy idea, right? No, only half right. It’s a crazy awesome idea! It’s the idea from today’s featured summer show vendor Ugly Baby. They are the masters of unique shower art, waterproof art that can hang by a suction cup. This will be their 4th time at UCU and I’d say its time we got to know these lovely people a bit better.

Where are you from?

I am originally from Minnesota and Doug hails from New Hampshire but neither of us talk funny anymore.

What is your favorite part about Urban Craft Uprising or other large-scale craft shows? They are just so exciting. I'm excited just thinking about it. Knowing that hundreds of people who make things are going to all be in the same place. It's just neat. There's a really great energy at these shows and it's always great to see the huge crowds of people supporting the handmade movement. It just makes me like people more in general.

What sets your company apart from others who offer similar products?

I can honestly say that no one offers similar products. We invented Shower Art and we're the only ones who make it. So......if you want some...yer gonna have to deal with us.

What do you like best about crafting/creating your product?

I like that Doug and I are just basically trying to crack each other up in the process of making these. We create them upside-down and backwards to when we go to pop them out of the molds, there is always a big reveal where we're rolling on the floor laughing at each other.

What are you offering up to our readers as a Giveaway?

A set of nine postcards based on our favorite Shower Arts: This Goat Hates your Butt, Meet the Zombies: They Love each other and BRAINS, Ours is a love that Shall Not be Named, Zombie Love is Eternal, When I Grow up I Want to be Bacon, I Believe in Super Safe Sex, This Zombie Earned His Wings, I Support Gay Ninja Marriage and Double Hugz.

Hear that? You can share the shower art phenomenon with postcards! So fun, I might need a few. Leave a witty comment below for your chance to snag this awesome giveaway. Same as before, winners will be announced Friday and the lucky duck can pick up their prize at the summer show July 10 & 11
