Christmas Is Tight This Year...

This one is too funny to not pass on...


My Dear Friends,

It's somewhat embarrassing to admit, I'm not getting an annual bonus and Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes. You'll most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:
You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.
Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes:
(1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself.... Awaiting your response. It's crucial that I get the right size for each one of you.



Oh come on! LAUGH out loud with me! This is too good!

hahahaheheheh!!! That is too funny! Okay - I where a narrow, so I guess this means I need the slim, super longs... Of course, the super maxi would be really soft and cushy.

Enjoying getting caught up with you. I'm still having laptop issues - can't upload pics and everything freezes up on me after about 5 minutes. Arghh!!

Also, thanks so much for the butterly award! You're too sweet. I was aware of this, I was just having too many laptop issues to comment. When I'm back up and running I'll be sure and mention. Thanks, again!

Loved that Doris thing - I'm going to have to give it a try! Gotta go now before everything shuts down on me again....

Merry Christmas!!!
