Times are tough...but I do my best!

My dear friends, 
Although it is somewhat embarrassing to admit, since I have been unemployed my Christmas budget 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 *
Come in 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 above so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself.... Awaiting your response.Please respond with your desired size, and decoration color.

Happy Holidays 
Love ya, LeAnne

No really I just took them to my ward's RS Christmas party white elephant gift exchange.

They were a hit and Mary Jo ended up
choosing the box with these beauties inside. 
  She was not the one who ended up taking them home though.

The best gift of the evening was Becky's selection...
Yep, that's right. Of all of the gifts she chose the pregnancy test.

Uhhh, I think we all know the results of that test.

Anyway, fun was had by all.

I love white elephant gift exchanges.

Wanna know what I got? 

I ended up with this

I had just commented how much I loved this when she posted it on facebook, lucky me!
