Ho, Ho, Ha Ha

Beautiful Hand Made Christmas Slippers

I've been busy all day making Christmas Slippers so when the big day
arrives, my friends will have something festive to wear on their
tootsies. These are fairly economical and fit my tiny gift budget
perfectly this year.

Here's the instructions and supply list:

A box of Maxi Pads (you will need 4 per pair of slippers)
Tape or Glue
Little Red Bows (2 per pair of slippers)
Optionally little Snowmen or Santas or Christmas Decor

Lay out two pads, for the soles.
Tape or glue the other two pads around the lower sole, for making the
top of the slippers
Tape or glue the red bows in the center of the top of the slippers
Decorate with little snowmen or small candies or small ornaments, use
glue or tape to hold in place

These slippers have many unqiue features

  • Budget Friendly

  • Absorb Sweat from Feet

  • Built-in deoderant feature

  • Soft

  • Hygenic

  • Environmentally Safe

  • Non Allergenic

  • Disposable

  • Biodegradable
The really cool thing is, once the holidays are over you can remove the
red bows and decorations to recycle for next Christmas. Also,
when  you are cleaning up from New Year's Eve debauchery,
these slippers can be used to mop up spilled champagne or eggnog, then
tossed out.

Feel free to share this crafty idea with all your friends.

While volunteering at the hospital on the Flight Deck  today,
um, excuse me, The Mental Ward, I was assigned 10 female patients to do
Christmas activities with.

First we made the Christmas Slippers (above) then we waited for Santa
Claus , who was supposed to be making his rounds in the hospital. While
we were waiting,  I challenged the patients to come up with
some new Christmas Carols.

Here are their ten submissions:

Santa Claus still had not shown up to  visit the Flight DeckMental
Ward
, so I left my goofy charges to go find him.  


There he was, sleeping on the job,  in the maternity ward. 

I didn't have the heart to wake him up, since he was babysitting.
