Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for the ‘Baby’ Category

Unique Christmas gifts for babies can be a little difficult to choose. After all, safety is the number one thing that you need to consider. It should be a gift that encourages mental and emotional growth but it must meet all safety standards to ensure the child can handle and play with it safety. It’s vital there are not any small pieces that can break off and cause a choking hazard or anything else that could cause harm to come to the child.

There are many options available to choose from so, it’s up to you to make sure the one you select is suited for the child on your list. It’s recommended that you research the item you plan to buy and check reviews so you’ll know what you’re actually purchasing. Reviews can help you make a wise choice because you can see what others have to say about the item you’re considering purchasing.

To give you a head start on your shopping, below you’ll find a list featuring a few unique Christmas gifts for babies:

  • Musical learning toys
  • Blocks
  • Activity gym
  • Baby books
  • Wall clocks for babies room
  • Glow in the dark inchworm toy
  • Leapfrog learning toys
  • Baby Ernestine tunes
  • Baby mobiles
  • Rocking horse

Babies can’t tell you what they want but they do seem to be highly attracted to colorful items, music and sounds. It’s for this reason the items listed above have made it to the top of list for this holiday season. If it makes noise, attracts attention and it’s safe for babies, then you’ve probably found the prefect gift. Before you buy, take the child’s age into consideration. You wouldn’t want to by a newborn a toy designed for a year old baby and vice versa so, choose wisely.


Keeping in the spirit of upcoming Mothers Day, here are some of our favorite Mothers Day quotes:

# Biblical Quote
V. Honor thy father and thy mother:
that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God give the thee.

# Mother
Simply having children does not make mothers.

# Over my slumbers your loving watch keep;
Rock me to sleep, mother; rock me to sleep.
– Elizabeth Chase

# The hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
– W. R. Wallace

# Her children arise up, and call her blessed.
– Proverbs 31:28

# Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
– William M. Thackeray

# The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom.
– H. W. Beecher

# What are Raphael’s madonnas but the shadow of a mother’s love, fixed in a permanent outline forever?
– T. W. Higginson

# Mother always said that honesty was the best policy, and money isn’t everything. She was wrong about other things too.
– Gerald Barzan

# “Once in Royal David’s city”
Once in Royal David’s City
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her baby,
In a manger for its bed:
Mary was that mother mid,
Jesus Christ her little child.
– Cecil Frances Alexander

# A mother who is really a mother is never free.
– Honore De Balzac

# What the mother sings the cradle goes all the way down to the coffin.
– Henry Ward Beecher

# Never marry a man who hates his mother, because he’ll end up hating you.
– Jill Bennett

# An author who speaks about his own books is almost as bad as a mother who talks about her own children.
– Benjamin Disraeli

# Men are what their mothers made them.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

# The Mother-child relationship is paradoxical and, in a sense, tragic. It requires the most intense love on the mother’s side, yet this very love must help the child grow away from the mother and to become fully independent.
– Erich Fromm

# I demand for the unmarried mother, as a sacred channel of life, the same reverence and respect as for the married mother; for Maternity is a cosmic thing and once it has come to pass, our conversation must not be permitted to blaspheme it.
– Ben Lindsey

# In Psycho:-
“A boy’s best friend is his mother.”
– Anthony Perkins

# The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom.
– H.W. Beecher

# Let France have good Mothers, and she will have good sons.
– Napoleon I

# My mother’s influence in molding my character was conspicuous. She forced me to learn daily of chapters of the bible by heart. To that discipline and patient, accurate resolve I owe not only much of my general power of taking pains, but the best part of my taste for literature.
– John Ruskin

# All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
– Lincoln

# A father may turn his back on his child; brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies; husbands may desert their wives and wives their husbands. But a mother’s love endures through all; in good repute, in bad repute, in the face of the world’s condemnation, a mother still loves on, and still hopes that her child may turn from his evil ways, and repent; still she remembers the infant smiles that once filled her bosom with rapture, the merry laugh, the joyful shout of his childhood, the opening promise of his youth; and she can never be brought to think him all unworthy.
– Washington Irving

Do you want your baby’s nursery to have that personal touch store-bought items can’t offer? Want to have a project you and your family will cherish for years to come? Need to decorate a baby’s nursery on a budget? Why not consider decorating your baby’s nursery with hand-crafted items?

Instead of buying an expensive crib bedding set with lots of pricey add-ons, design your own nursery theme. Whether you are a novice designer or an experienced home decorator, designing your own nursery with hand crafted design is fun and easy.

Fabric stores today offer many great options for baby quilts. Preprinted fabric with fun characters and designs are a good place to start. Or, if you want a more traditional quilt, try a baby nine patch block style quilt. If you cannot find a fabric that suits your style at the store, try an online store or even e-bay for many great vintage and hard to find styles. Quilt and baby bed bumper patterns are also available at fabric stores or online. Choose a pattern that suits your level of style and expertise. By making a baby quilt, you are not only creating a great decorative quilt for your baby to enjoy in the coming years, you are also creating a family heirloom.

For wall hangings, consider using cut outs from your preprinted quilt fabric. Or, if you went the more traditional route with a block style quilt, make a few extra blocks to hang on the wall. Another option is to print out fun cartoon characters or even family pictures and frame them in hand decorated frames. Get a few vintage buttons or beads and glue them the frame for a unique look. Fabric covered frames or designs created by stenciling on the frames are other good items. Hang the pictures on the wall in a unique design to add even more flair.

Curtains or valances will be an easy addition, too. Purchase extra fabric when you are making your other projects. Or, consider using a solid color to highlight one of the colors in the quilt or other décor. Simple curtain and valance patterns can be found online or at your local fabric store.

Other personal touches could include handcrafted lampshades and pillows, faux finished walls or even paint a unique mural to match the theme of the baby’s room. The possibilities are endless when you put your imagination to work!

Decorate baby’s nursery in a one of a kind style with handcrafted art and décor. The investment you make now will be cherished for years to come in the life of your baby and your family. You can also find some great baby decor items over at UDO for yourself or as gifts!


What can be more special than a new little addition to the family?

The sonogram frames aren’t just for the parents-to-be; they make a great gift for grandparents, siblings and other family members and a spectacular way to introduce the new addition to your family. Do you have other children already? This would be a great way to help them feel closer to the little one growing in mommy’s belly.

Do grandparents live far away? You could send this as a “sneak preview” of their soon-coming grandbaby. The self-standing frame is perfect for Daddy’s desk at the office. The whimsical design and artisan handcrafted work that went into this piece makes it extra special for your baby’s first photo!
