April 2008 Challenge Entry – Rainbow Trout Trio by ChitownCheryl

leave a comment »



8″ x 10″ print of my original watercolor, which popped into my head one day.

Printed on semi-glossy Sony photo paper, the print is signed by the artist…me.

The original was done using Winston Newton watercolors on Arches paper. It hangs in my husband’s den. It’s his favorite.

April 2008 Challenge Entry – Hop Into Spring Rag Quilted Pillows by SherryRenee

leave a comment »



I made these two rag quilted pillows out of a bunny print cotton fabric, a yellow flannel and a white vintage chenille. They are comfy pillows to lay on or cute just to sit on your bed or sofa.

Each square is stitched with an “X” to another piece of a lighter yellow flannel. The pillows measure approx. 25 inches around and they are stuffed with “Cluster Fill” polyster fiberfill. They have been washed once to start the raveling process and can be machine washed and dryed. The “Cluster Fill” is not suppose to clump up. Each seam has been triple stitched for extra reinforcement.

Rock Baby Onesie Personalized

Notes from the artist :
This little shirt is inspired by my baby who seems to love Justin Timberlake and Hanna Montana music. Every times it comes on in the car she stops yelling at me and starts dancing. So I designed her a shirt to celebrate that she is a rock baby. I love making things personalized for my baby, like burp cloths that match her blankets and shirts with her name on them.

April 2008 Challenge Entry – Bunny Burp by ClaireAndJanae

leave a comment »



These happy bunnies will hop into spring and hop into your diaper bag so you can clean up after a spit up baby.

These custom Made Burp cloths make a great gift. Cloth diapers make the best burp cloths around but they just aren’t that pretty so I pair them with my favorite fabric.

The Taggie keeps your cloth from walking off somewhere like all your babies socks (if you are like me.)

Philadelphia GROW Project

The mission of the Philadelphia GROW Project is to partner with families to improve the growth and nutrition of their children, to prevent hunger and food insecurity, and to promote the health of Philadelphians.

The Philadelphia GROW Project as three interrelated endeavors:

The GROW Clinic

Local and National Advocacy
The Philadelphia GROW Project works in tandem with the C-SNAP team regarding national advocacy. In Southeastern Pennsylvania, we work with families to provide individualized advocacy, while at the same time, we translate our findings from The GROW Clinic and C-SNAP Philadelphia into local reports for legislators and anti-hunger advocates.
