These burp rags are so adorable! I could see that in the picture, but in life, they really are stunning and the craftsmanship is impeccable. Good price, too! I would love to buy from this shop again! ❤️

About

We Bloom, We Blossom

Hello, my name is Mary Beth Stephens and I'm the owner of BlüteBaby. I have a passion for designing and creating. I can't remember a time in my childhood where I wasn't being creative or doing something artistic. I find it hard not to look at something and assess it by it's design and artistic qualities. I am fascinated by colors and textures, to me they bring depth, interest and mystery.

I started drawing at a young age using Richard Scary books as a guide. It was in high school when art made the biggest impression on me; drawing, sculpting and ceramics. In college I took many photography classes and really liked them, so I wanted to minor in art. Unfortunately I couldn't due to my course load and athletic scholarship commitment. From then on, I was always trying a new medium. I started painting furniture, before it became ever so popular! I made hand stenciled stationary and cards, aluminum can recycled art, drawings, paintings and helped friends decorate and design spaces in their homes.

I found sewing in August of 2015 and fell in love, passionately! I'm self taught and continue to learn on a daily basis. I love combining fabrics in an unique way.

My father was an artist of German decent. He was a very talented painter, wood carver and photographer. My father's father, my grandfather was very talented too, but I did not see him much because he stayed in Austria. I only saw pictures of his work. My father tried to bring his art to the forefront of his life, wanting success as an artist. But he was always met by the toughest obstacle; a lack of self confidence.

I am my father's daughter! I too have let that obstacle stand in my way in the past, but no more! I have a wonderful and supportive family. My husband Bill who never hinders my creativity. My beautifully brilliant compassionate daughter Ellie who makes me proud everyday. My imaginative, quick-witted bright son Mac who will make a name for himself one day. And my sister Kristina, who is the biggest and best cheerleader there is.

BlüteBaby is my dream. It has become my passion. I want to attain success, achievement and fulfillment. I want to make myself proud and I want to make my family proud.

I named this business to salute my dad's efforts as an artist and to signify that we as individuals will find ourselves on many different paths throughout life; some good, some bad. We start at infancy and bloom into children. From childhood we blossom in teenagers. From teenagers we flourish into young adults and begin to discover who we are and what we dream of.

Blüte is German for bloom... We start to bloom from the day we are born and continue to blossom everyday of our lives.

We Bloom, We Blossom Each and Every Day
Along, In Our Individual Ways
Our Path, We Dream... Aim with Desire
Let's Us Grow and Flourish... To Become What We Aspire
