Ugly Baby Interview and Giveaway!
Unique waterproof art ready for the shower! Come learn a bit about Ugly Baby and enter to win in their giveaway!
UCU: Pick a song that gets you in creative mood or you think would make a great addition to a "UCU Winter 2010 Soundtrack".
UB: Sadly, neither one of us really listens to music all that much. If you're accepting podcasts though, I'd recommend: Never Not Funny, WTF, Delicious Mediocrity, The Moth, This American Life, Radio Lab and Wiretap.
UCU: What’s one thing you wish you had known at your first craft show?
UB: My first craft show was in Renton. There was a hail storm. In April. We were outside. I think when I signed up for it, the lady who was organizing it said we would be sharing a tent. In my mind -- that was like a circus tent. I giant tent with places for you to go sit down and eat lunch. In reality it was a normal 10x10 tent. I learned a lot that day - like: Bring your own table cover so you don't have to dig an old yoga mat out of the car to put on your table.
UCU: If you have pets, introduce them and tell us a bit about them!
UB: We have one cat, Karma. If anyone is looking to own a really loud, annoying cat who sometimes stands on your head in the middle of the night and tries to eat big chunks of your hair -- all the while choking on said hair right in your ear -- please do let us know.
UCU: What item are you most excited to be offering at UCU Winter 2010?
UB: We've got a ton of our popular one-inch Shower Arts. We always run out of these but we invested in a bunch of new one-inch molds so we can make a huge pile of them at once. Super!
UCU: What day of show traditions are you bringing to UCU 2010?
UB: My tradition: Buying way more stuff than I should.
Doug's tradition: Flirting with the ladies.
UCU: If you could sum up your work in one word, what would that be?
UCU: What gift are you most excited to give this year?
UB: I like to pick one vendor and buy the majority of my gifts from them -- so my family and friends get all get introduced to something super cool all at the same time. Last year it was Estrella Soaps. Not sure who it will be this year.
UCU: What are you nibbling on as the snow falls this winter?
UB: We're making lots of soup in our crock pot this year. I'm actually in training for a Crock-Off we're having at work in January. I'm a shoe-in.
UCU: Favorite handmade item you have? It could be made by you, gifted to you or something you picked up.
UB: Gosh. I think it's probably impossible for me to pick a favorite. I have so many favorites. Most recently acquired was a tray of plush tater tots with different facial expressions by Scrumptious Delight. http://www.etsy.com/shop/scrumptiousdelight
