Tuesday night I was coming out of the hospital (of all places) after my meditation/yoga class. I was really relaxed and feeling pretty good... and actually thinking to myself that I was really relaxed, and feeling good. I wasn't even minding the cold so much. At that exact moment I took a step, slipped on some sheer ice covering the sidewalk and fell, hitting my knee pretty badly.
After hours of waiting in the ER I left with a knee brace, some pain killers and a set of torture devices (otherwise known as crutches). I laid around yesterday in pain, annoyed that everything seemed so difficult to do with the crutches... but impossible to do without them I decided that if I was going to have to use them, I might as well make them my own.
So I broke out the Mod Podge and 2 pieces of scrapbook paper in a pattern that made me happy and went to work.
These are now more my style.
One tip though... if you are going to podge your crutches. Make sure you either work on just one at a time, or are prepared to stay put for the duration of the drying time!
