We are Rosalie & Douglas Gale: inventors of Shower Art - waterproof art you can hang in your shower with a suction cup. We've been making this nonsense since 2008 and (not to brag) have become the very best Shower Art makers in the whole Pacific NW. It wasn't hard. We're still the only people who make them.
This dynamic duo owns two retail stores in Seattle: Ugly Baby in the historic Pike Place Market and Monster in the Ballard neighborhood. Both stores sell the work of independent artists – Ugly Baby has a special focus on D.I.Y. craft kits & enamel pins (aside from the full Ugly Baby line) and Monster features the work of over 100 different Pacific Northwest artists.
Rosalie is currently obsessed with German board games, pattern design, reverse appliqué and free-motion embroidery. She focuses on managing the retail shops, payroll, accounting, ordering product, sourcing new artists and creating the wholesale offerings. She has attended or taught at every single Craftcation Conference and plans to attend or teach at every single one until they stop having them or she dies.
Douglas makes a boink-ton of memes and watches a lot of Star Trek when he isn't fulfilling his duties which include (but are not limited to) transportation, employee schedules, HR, manufacturing, website stuff and shipping. We get our money's worth out of him. He's also the baby in our logo. That's a picture of him on the day he was born. As his family says, "It was a rough day for your mother."
These are our current favorites. Basically whatever we've made most recently takes up the most space in our hearts - but these babies will fill our hearts forever. Or at least until we're sick of looking at 'em.
Someone threw these rocks through our window on two separate occasions. Were they they best days of my life? No. Decidedly not. Were they the worst? No - they weren't really that either.
In the spirit of trying to turn something crappy into something nice, these Rocks of Destruction are currently for sale for $1000 and $2000 respectively. If anyone purchases them, we will donate the full amount to Treehouse for Kids, a non profit in Seattle that supports children in the foster care system.
