A Craftunity

craf•tu•ni•ty. noun \ 1. An unfavorable set of circumstances now tolerable because of craftiness. 2. An opportunity for craftiness.

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!


  1. Oh no :( I feel your pain - I fell a little over a week ago and bruised my knees badly - that time of year I guess - you sure were in the right place and I LOVE your crafy crutches!!!!! :)

  2. I'm so sorry - -take care of yourself. Those crutches are adorable!

  3. These are so absolutely cute - I too hope you recover soon! xo

  4. Thanks for much for these comments ladies. Now.. I want to add a pocket to these babies... something to hold my cell phone since wearing pants with pockets has become a chore in itself. : )

  5. after hobbling 8 weeks on crutches last year, tho they were not nearly as attractive, I found a small backpack worked like a charm...sicne carrying a purse is nearly impossible.
    Good luck and hope you heal quick!
    Love the paper you chose! :)

  6. 8 WEEKS- oh your poor dear! After 4 days (and not even full days at that) I'm ready to get rid of these. The backpack is a great idea!

  7. ACK!! That's making lemonade from lemons. Hope you recover quickly!

  8. Aww, I'm so sorry to hear about your accident, but have to say your crutches are the classiest ever! I hope you'll mend quickly.
