Potty Treat Jar

So I've been trying the treat/prize method for potty training my oldest daughter Allison. I was just getting the treats from places in the house, but after seeing my friends super cute one IN the bathroom I took this adorable container her Aunt made for awhile back& filled it up with candy& dollar store toys/party favor toys and put it on the back of the toilet so hopefully she will want to go more often! Even her younger sister thinks its cool& has dragged me to the bathroom to take her potty! Wish me luck that this method works better for me! I've done a chart, timer, putting on just panties, etc. She's just stubborn I guess!

My friend got a big glass jar with lid from Walmart but my daughter can't get this one open & it's just dang cute! She used an old bulk container, modge podged the lid& put some vinyl words on the outside! So perfect& great way to recycle!

Oh! She loves it so much she gives it a hug almost every time she goes in there& says, "I love my treats! They are so wonderful!" :) haha She's so darn cute!

Car Seat Cover Redo

Car Seat Cover

This featured project is by Becky Groll over at I Dream of Quilting 

She totally redid my car seat cover for me! She did a fabulous job! She makes everything look so easy;) I helped take some of it apart but the rest was all her! This is what she said: 

"My big accomplishment for the month of August has been to take apart a car seat cover and put in some new fabric.  The backing is new also.  It needed washed and when we did so, the backing was starting to fall apart.  I put a light green flannel on the back, so when we have to wash it again it will stay together (I hope).  This is not a difficult project.  Start to finish, it takes a couple of hours, but not hard.  The only part that is all new on the top of this is the polka-dot fabric."
