Scaling Back for Christmas

My friend Linda sent me this as an email. I laughed for half an hour.

Christmas is tight this year, so 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.

Materials Needed:

* 4 Maxi-Pads (more for super-plush models)
* Tape or Glue
* Items to Embellish

You need four maxi pads to make a pair of slippers. Two of them get laid out flat in front of you, for the sole of the foot. The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top of the slipper. Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Now you have a pair of slippers you can embellish. Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, charms, beads, silk flowers, etc.

You can attach a gift card to your slippers with these descriptions:

* Slippers for the descrete woman (or man who is comfortable with his masculinity).
* Soft and hygenic.
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles.
* Built in deodorant feature to keep feet smelling fresh.
* No more bending over to mop up spills.
* Disposable, biodegradable, and environmentally safe.
* Comes in 3 convenient sizes: Regular, Light day, and SUPER Absorbent.

By the way, because of their absorbent nature, these are not especially good to use at the Y or other shower areas. Home use only is recommended.
