We receive gifts all the time through out the day it might be a phone call, hug , some special item we had on our list. My gracious manner for the day is please don't forget to say thank you to the gift bearer. Here is a creative way to say thank you and hand deliver . Write your note on the shoe or a piece of paper to roll up and stick in the slipper. I have so enjoyed making these slippers . The pattern came from Stampington & Co. What a delightful pleasure to be on the receiving end of one of these slippers.
