A How-To… And a Smile!

Hey all!!! I got this in an email today and thought I’d share it with you. As I read this email I was very serious and concern was growing for my friend… This is what she wrote me:

“My dear friends, 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.”

….as you may have figured out…she is just as silly as I am! I loved this little home made joke and thought you might get a kick out of it too!!!

hee hee!!!!!!!!

Until next time…Happy (ahem) ‘crafting’

'Get out the sandbags' oh, that had me rolling! Now that I look at these, I get to thinking, how cool is that? And you know what, they might actually make good shoe insoles, wow, odor-free and cushy! I have a stash here I will no longer be needing and was just wondering what I could do with them. (The boys always thought it was gross I kept some in the glove compartment in case of a car accident, but they would make dandy bandages, too, lol.!)

Now I know what to get for those difficult people on my list.
