You guys must have at least one little girl in your life that wears (or will wear) a size 4T-5T!
So as many of you know, I used to run a small handmade dress shop on Etsy (under GrowingUpwCharissa and minimooh). Charissa has long outgrown her love of wearing dresses, and I am finally ready to part with the remaining "originals".

To enter, you (or your minions) must submit a piece of 6x6 artwork to Rochester Contemporary Art Center (visit http://www.roco6x6.org/ for submission guidelines and form.) It is a unique (and free! minus shipping costs) opportunity to create something and have it displayed and up-for-sale at a real art gallery! So to enter:
1. Create a piece of 6x6 art.
2. Pack it up for shipping and then take a picture of the package.
3. Post your picture on my timeline, private message me the picture, or email me the picture.
4. Gain additional entries/chances by sharing this giveaway on FB and leave a comment here or on my FB page (http://www.facebook.com/mhjenniferho)letting me know that you did so.
Deadline is April 20th. The dresses pictured in the photo are the ones you will receive if you should win.

Zoloft Dosage, Try it. Tuesdays - "The Notebook" (Doodle Pillow)
My kids have been really into drawing these days. Buy generic Zoloft, So much so that they've set up their own little art gallery:
Their most frequent visitor:
The first thing they said to me after opening their gallery (which, of all 12 rooms of the house, they chose the living/formal/piano room) was: "Don't take them down okay Mommy?, after Zoloft. Just leave them there!"
Despite being in a not-so-ideal location, Is Zoloft addictive, their drawings are pretty darn cute (I am biased, of course) and always make me smile. So I decided to take their art a step further and create throw pillow covers from them, Zoloft images, hence, Zoloft brand name, this week's project:
A simple "envelope" style cover for a 16" pillow. This would make a cute Valentine's Day project for a grandparent, Zoloft Dosage.
- blue-ish and red-ish thread for the "notebook paper" look
- white fabric (a 16.5" x 16.5" square, a 16.5" by 11.5" rectangle, Zoloft wiki, and a 16.5" by 8.5" rectangle)
- embroidery thread and needle in your choice of color(s). Zoloft street price, Optional. I did not use these.
- your child's drawing
With the square (front) piece of fabric, Zoloft maximum dosage, use a pencil and draw a horizontal line across the width of the pillow, Where can i buy Zoloft online, 3/4" from the bottom edge.
From this bottom line, draw 21 more lines across the width of the pillow so that they are 1/2" apart.
Draw a line perpendicular to all the lines you just drew, 3.75" from the edge (this is your left margin rule), Zoloft australia, uk, us, usa.
Zoloft Dosage, With your blue-ish thread, stitch across all 21 lines. I set my stitch length to 5 (the longest stitch); With your red-ish thread, Zoloft duration, stitch down the left margin line.
Ta da. You've now completed your very own notebook fabric.
There are many ways to "transfer" you child's drawing onto the pillow, Zoloft from canada. You can embroider it on, Zoloft coupon, draw it on, or machine-stitch it on, which is what I did (since I don't own any embroidery needles or thread), Zoloft photos. This part is up to you, Zoloft Dosage. But here is how I did mine:
Position the original drawing under your notebook fabric and trace with a pencil.
Set your machine stitching to reinforcement stitching (2 or 3 stitches at a time).
Stitch along the traced image, Australia, uk, us, usa, lifting up the foot and pivoting to get around curves.
With the front completed, all that's left to do is putting together the pieces:
Take the two rectangular pieces of fabric and, for each, serge/zig-zag down one of the long sides (16.25" side). Turn the serged side over 1/4" and stitch down, creating a hem.
With right-sides facing one another, place the larger of the two rectangles on top of your front piece, lining the raw edges together. Pin in place.
Place the smaller of the two rectangles on top of your front piece (and overlapping the other rectangle), lining the raw edges together. Pin in place.
Straight-stitch down the perimeter of the square, 1/4" from the edge and serge/zig-zag all the way around.
Now turn your cover right-side out, stuff your pillow inside and...
Yay. A cute little pillow featuring the world's best art ;).
