Upping the Ante

Desperate times call for desperate measures. At the beginning of December, after 3 weeks of hard work, I thought I was over the hump with potty training Lily.
NOPE. I was wrong. It's like switch went off and since the beginning of December she has not done you know what in the potty. Even Santa could not convince her that pooping in the potty was best.
So I have resorted to bribery. Starting with the lovely collection of Pet Shops as shown in the box below. One Poopy=one Pet Shop. How is it going? I bought this box in December and it hasn't been touched. Just sitting on a shelf in the kitchen for us to admire each day.
While walking the aisles of Target yesterday, Lily spied these silver sparkle glittery shoes, they are very similar to her big sister's. So, guess what got added to the kitchen shelf? Come on are turning three in less than a week.

Another lay out using the Epiphany Crafts Vintage Settings and the small epoxy tool. I could use this tool on every single lay out, I could, I tell you.
We had the opportunity to go to Cuba a few years back, it was AMAZING. I loved every moment of it. I will always remember how lovely the people were, the nicest I have met on my travels. I also recall always hearing music pouring on to the streets, no matter where we were. It is kind of tricky for Americans to get there, but if you ever get the chance you should go. I also should add that I always felt very safe.

Littlest Pet Shops! You could have gotten me to do ANYTHING with a Littlest Pet Shop bribe when I was a girl :) Hope the potty training is working!
