All things baby

This is a cute baby project that I did on commission not too long ago.  I am also going to show you a gift package that I did for a sweet new friend from Africa that just moved to the states this past year, soon found out she was pregnant, and has since had a beautiful baby boy.  I love doing baby projects. I can also do most of the baby items whether it is a baby coverlet, receiving blankets, bibs, changing pads, onesies I can embroider cute pictures on them or monogram and I use as many natural and organic products as possible.  Please email me if you are interested in doing an order today.  This is the set that was commissioned.

Bib set with sweet baby quilt. This quilt was designed for a boy but really could be used for either girl or boy. 

The next set is the gift set that I gave to my sweet friend for her son.  
 I have most designs that are   

   requested. I always try and have the client to choose something that is unique. This was a gift but I was sort of searching to see what she might like for her son. 

Baby receiving blanket with babies name embroidered on them.  To go with the onesies there are embroidered burp cloths.

Please email me if you have a special order, special request, for your next baby gift...

My new table just in time for the Holidays...

  I wanted a new table, more of a table that was a height for our daughter so she could easily get in and out of her chair with little help.  I love the PB table that is the farmhouse table so I decided to ask my dear husband to help me. We found a plan online at Knock Off Woods blog that was similar to what we wanted and drew out what we wanted. The next few days were spent going to Lowes, Home Depot and buying wood and paint. Between Lowes and Home Depot we got all of our wood, and even had it cut there at the store from our cut list. The table turned out fantastic. We did have to let it sit outdoors to get a bit worn looking and let the paint off-gas (we used low- no VOC primer and paints and it still had odor).  I wanted to share some pictures.

The reason I do this, is that it is time for the Holidays and decorating and Urban Organic
Studios is working in the workshop, overtime! Get your order in today. Please check out our Facebook page and . I am working on getting the cash cart on Facebook and setting up an ETSY homemade shop please think of me and order tell your friends and family when you need a personal home made gift.  God bless. 

P.S. I will be updating later with a cut list for our table as well as step by step instructions if you would like to make your own farmhouse table.

Thanks for visiting :0)

Colors of the Rainbow - in Gourmet Bibs

  I have a dear friend in San Francisco that I met for the first time.  Elizabeth and I have been friends on Facebook for some time now and met through a mutual friend at the time. You see Elizabeth and I have daughters who have physical challenges and special abilities.

  When I met Elizabeth and Becca for the first time we had visited San Francisco to see a Nutritionist for our daughter and while we were there decided to see if we could meet.  The girls were able to play and we were able to talk. Elizabeth had a need for Becca for bibs.  I can relate to this as our children face some challenges, one of those is in the eating arena. That is what we will call it, as it becomes an arena for food everywhere, all over the clothing, the floor and essentially anything in the remote area.

I found out from Elizabeth what she needed and she was so prepared she had a previous bib and I was able to determine what size. We put snaps on the back.  This was a custom bib for Becca with sweet colors like lollipops and hemmed with modern, decorative fabrics, and snaps on the back. I will post some pictures. I am thankful to Becca and her mommy for letting me be a part of making these sweet bibs and also being able to be creative with them as we did some embroidery of Beccas name and butterflies on the bibs for her. It was a blessing !

 Here are the Bibs in the making so you can understand the process. I only had the measurements of the previous bib that Becca was wearing. It was much too small for her. She needed something to cover her and not be able to get food on her clothing.

It started with fun colored towell's, and finding fabric to match for the border.


I wish I could post more these were really cute and fun to make so glad to be a part of making these,  If you have a need and would like some special needs bibs please feel free to email me.  I will send you more information on pricing and sizing requirements and the time required for the bibs.
