A friend of mine has been in a funk so I sent her these slippers I made.
Attached was my note:
Since this 'blue funk' has left you feeling depleted & lethargic, I wanted to make bedroom slippers for you as a gift. This way you can just 'chill' & enjoy your R & R sweetie in comfort. Love you to pieces!
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: Regular, Light and Get out the Sand Bags.
Well it was time to play with something new but actually I started the plant stakes & vases before the 'gals' were born. I was 'sprucing' up some of my plants as this 'Babe' truly has a huge case of Spring Fever! Seeds have all been started in the house to add o my already full garden. Since my house is FULL I had to carry my compulsive buying to the outside of the house. Never a gardener prior to moving into this townhouse, I have learned to LOVE it! Grab a Bloody Mary & Martha my black lab & we are so content to play in the dirt!
When hubby gets home we do as we call it "our daily plant walk" (what dorks!) & we see what new surprises we have for the day. Martha just hits the door when we tell her what we are going to do! The older we get I think we are more content with the small things & relaxing on the patio smelling flowers .................
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh life IS good!

Well it is only Friday & my intentions were to make dolls on Monday. Now that is some feet draggin'! With business slow I am sure most of you may feel a tad uncreative too knowing that your house is filling up with unsold work. I hang the gals in my garage & have a ton of nails so when they are full is when I start trading & giving them to 'buds' & family. Then I have room for more! ~sigh~
Wishing you all beautiful weekends.

Grandchildren are wonderful. ~sigh~ My oldest Lexi unfortunetly I do not get to see very often & I miss my Punkin'. When she was younger though I would see her a couple of times a month & every Sunday would be 'project day.' I LOVE making a mess & the projects were never small ones. She ADORED them as much as I did-we have always been VERY CLOSE in each other's hearts. Well this weekend I had my precious eldest granddaughter & it was a full day of projects. A great time was had by all!

Can I just say that it is a rare thing these days to find someone who is not only humble, but honest, caring, and willing to go out of their way to help, rather than hurt another individual? This would describe Kari Joy, an artist, and now friend I have just met through an artists' group on ebay. She has been gracious enough to allow me to create a post on her blog about my Painting a Pup a Day project. It is a project I started at the beginning of this year in which I will try my best to paint a dog each day (or every few days) and donate 10% to one of the various dog rescue groups I work with personally, as well as thru the group Art 4 Critters. If you would like to learn more about my project feel free to visit my Painting a Pup a Day Blog. Thank you Kari for being such a light to others, not only thru your work, but thru your friendship and kindness!
