This brings a new meaning to the term "Christmas Shoes"...

I received this letter and the accompanying photo from one of my friends yesterday. Yes, I'm serious. I just had to share it with my blog readers! Enjoy ~ Deanna

Dear family and friends,

Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for everyone as gifts. I hope you'll agree that it's a splendid idea and, should you wish to do the same for some of your Christmas gifts, I've included the instructions below:

You'll need four maxi pads for each pair of slippers. Lay two of them out flat. Wrap a single pad around the toe area of each flat pad to form the top of the slipper. Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part. the tops with whatever you desire: silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

Maxi 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: Regular, Light and Get out the Sand Bags.

I've included a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself. Let me know which size you'd like me to make for you.

Oh, my. I guess this could add a new dimension to being ready 'in season' and 'out'. LOL
