Rose Earl Grey Slippers

Just a quick post to share a recent project of mine. These are going in a slipper swap package. Hope the recipient likes them!

Also, I just need to mention a recent frustration and hopefully someone has a bit of advice to give. Our dog, Izzie has been potty trained for months now. She goes in and out of her doggie door as she pleases. Lately, it's been cold (relatively speaking of course, we're in southern California for goodness sakes!). Being the princess that she is, instead of going outside, she goes potty inside, right in front of the dog door. She does this at night while were sleeping and she doesn't wake us up. It's a lovely thing to wake up to in the morning, that's for sure! What can we do? She's fine during the day while were at work because the sun is out and its warmer. At night is a whole other story. Any suggestions?

My last final is tonight, and then I have another dance performance tomorrow night (I won't even mention how horrible the first one went last night). Then I should have more time to catch up on my "to-do" list. Hope you all are having a great week!


  1. Hey Ash! First off, congrats on your etsy sales! So close to 50!

    Secondly, I worke din the veterinary industry for many many years.., I have a few ideas for you.

    Make sure she goes outside to potty before you go to bed and give her treats when she goes!

    Try keeping her in your bedroom at night (or in a room where her bed is), dogs rarely soil their dens.

    If there is a rug in front of the door that she is defecating on, remove it.

    Treats treats treats for going potty outside! The idea is to make the cold worth the praise. :)

    Hope one of those things help, good luck!

  2. She's regressing subconsciously for attention lol!! Also I really like the buttons on those slippers.

  3. Nice slippers! Your swap partner must be thrilled. :-)

    Good luck with Izzie's training. I never had a pet and can't give you any advice but this: follow what the experts say!

  4. Those slippers are so cute!!

    You might think about crating her at night. It might seem mean, but she's just going to be sleeping anyway.
