Oliver Blu Designs Blog

About us

Oliver Blu designs is owned and run by Christy Hodgson from her home studio in Apex, North Carolina. Christy has been designing custom stationery and wedding correspondence since 2002. Originally called BellaBlu designs, Christy expanded her company in 2007 to include a variety of handmade art, paper, and fabric creations, including a line of unique hand appliquéd baby clothing. In February of 2008, Christy was invited to join Martha Stewart on her daily talk show to demonstrate the creative process behind her original dog appliquéd baby bodysuits.

Inspired by the juxtaposition of fun, funky patterns and simple silhouettes, Christy’s love of animals is prevalent throughout her visual vocabulary. She holds a BFA in drawing and painting from The Ohio State University and an MA in advertising and brand planning from the University of Texas at Austin. Her professional career has included various marketing and management positions in professional services and the high-tech industry.

When she’s not designing or crafting up a storm, Christy keeps herself busy with her wonderful husband, Andy, their son, Oliver, and two cats, Stitch and Aidan.
