I may be Ms. Bathtub, but I hardly ever take baths.. I do shower that is, so don't worry!

I am the director of the Bathtub Art Museum and also run my own printing card & novelties business under the name Red Bat Press. I live in the great bike fun-friendly city of Portland.

I'm always up for a good adventure; however anything goes here.

Clever ReUse

This weekend I went for a short walk in my inner North Portland neighborhood and discovered a carport roof made out of Nike display graphics.

This clever reuse was especially great to see because I used to have a job shipping those exact same grapics that are about 2 x 3 feet and mounted on board. These store display graphics would be changed out 4 times a year, and sent to 100s of stores - which equals A LOT of waste since the matierals are most likely dumped after use. I was happy to see something I thought would be thrown away put to some good use.
