Honestly so super wonderful. Seller was willing to work a custom piece that wound up being perfect. She was so friendly and willing to work with me. The item was great and wound up being one of the best presents this Christmas. Thanks!

Ris was fantastic to work with on getting this custom piece done for my [ivf] twins. When I opened my package, I appreciated how secure the item was. The item itself exceeded my expectations and looks like something I see in magazines. Great cause and glad to help a fellow ivf'er. I plan on getting more as gifts for baby showers or holiday gifts. Good luck on treatments!! :)

About

Making things to make a baby!

If you follow my Instagram (@rubybluestudio), you know I love to sew. Embroidery and cross stitch are my JAM. I first started stitching as a way to relieve the stress and anxiety I had about my parent’s divorce. When I would start getting anxious or sad, I would put on a new show on Netflix and start sewing something pretty. My brain could only keep 2 tabs open at a time so my worries would fade to background noise while I sat and stitched and watched Buffy kick vampire butt. It’s become one of my favorite hobbies and I highly recommend it!

My husband and I have known for quite a while that we would have a hard time becoming pregnant. We still wanted to give it the old college try tho;) So try we did, until last summer our doctor told us definitively that without IVF we don’t stand a chance.

If you’re unfamiliar with IVF, there are a couple things to know to start. First, it costs about a million bajillion dollars. Okay not that much. But really: $10k PLUS medications, anesthesia, blood work, ultrasounds, etc. Generally AT LEAST $15k, it can be upwards of $20-25 if you do a guarantee program. That’s where you pay for multiple cycles upfront and if you don’t get a baby by the end they refund at least some of the money. Sounds like a great deal (the refund part) but coming up with all that money up front is TOUGH. It’s all out of pocket. We’ve saved up as much as possible but still have a while to go.

So. It’s super expensive. Second, you have to do about a million shots. Okay not a million. But a lot. A LOT. And for someone super scared of needles, that’s been a tough mental mountain to climb. But my heart and soul and body and entire being longs to be a mother. So shoot me up and give me all the drugs. I can take it!

So between the mega money and shots this is going to take, my anxiety started to kick in and I turned again to my stitching. As I worked (and relaxed to the soothing sounds of Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson) I began to form an idea. And the more I stitched and thought about it, the more excited I became.

My sewing needles will help make super scary hormone needles a reality! Eek! But only with your help! Take a look at my listings or shoot me a message if you want to create something one of a kind! I'm excited to create something with you!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to customize orders, just send me a message!

Care instructions

A light dusting is all that's necessary to keep your hoop in tip top shape. Never remove your piece from the hoop or backing, it has been permanently mounted and attempting to remove it will ruin it.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All pieces come wrapped and ready to gift! If you are sending your piece directly to the giftee (rather than to yourself), I can include a note with your best wishes. Simply include what you'd like the note to say in the "Notes to Seller" section. Your special someone will receive a delightfully packaged, handmade, one-of-a-kind gift that will last indefinitely with a handwritten (by me) note from you. Best. Present. Ever. :)

Shipping

Shipping Times will vary. An delivery date estimate and tracking numbers will be sent to you when shipped.

Once I drop your package at the post office, it's in their capable hands. Ruby Blue Studio is not responsible for lost, damaged, or undeliverable packages. Please double check your shipping address!

International Shipping

I'm willing to ship internationally! Please contact me before purchasing so I can get you an estimate of shipping price.
