idle hands are the devil's workshop...

...but idle feet make me awfully productive. i guess when you're not doing pesky things like walking (which, incidentally, i gave up for lent. because i am devout like that.) you can do lots of other things, like knit and sew and glue shiny rhinestones on EVERYTHING.

so that's what i've been doing. while on drugs. which is just as fun as it sounds, i promise.

here are some baby gift sets i've made in the last month, with the top two being finished over this past weekend. obviously walking is stupid and time-consuming, as it has clearly been hindering their completion. thus i do not miss walking at all. nope. not. at. all.




and here, as promised, are some pictures of my "injury accessories." the stock options were embarassing, so i had to pimp my ride as it were. initially i used your basic crafting rhinestones, but i soon realized that they were not nearly as resplendent as i needed them to be. so ariel took me downtown to the crystal store, where i will be moving in, to live forever, happily amongst the beautiousness.

they are so beautiful i want to fill a bathtub with rhinestones and climb in. i want to glue them in swirls all over my body and then suspend myself from the ceiling. i want to line them up in perfect sparkly rows and snort them in ways that would make hollywood proud.

Your love of rhinestones shames my love of rhinestones. SHAMES. However, the amount of time taken to type this correctly was greatly affected by the glue I've been using all afternoon to adhere said rhinestones. So I might win.

LOVE IT!! Wish I could think of a way to Rhinestone up my Mom's things. Poor woman's having a heck of time with her dentist these days. Maybe a pretty rhinestone case to put her pain killers in :)

I can safely say that no one has had a sexier broken foot than you.

I LOVE the colors of the first baby set.

But I LOVE the bunny ears in the second.

And I LOVE monkeys. :)

You are very talented my friend. Especially with your rhinestone goodness.

You need to stop hurting yourself... maybe you need to hire some famous hollywood hunk to carry you around all day. Send pictures.

You could totally market your injury accessories. I hurt for you and your leaking bruise. We missed you on Sunday. What a lovely pedicure, though.

Feel better. Your craftiness in a time of despair is inspiring.

Put. The Bedazzler. Down.

I am so envious of your talent AND style. Fabulous work, as usual. xo

Blogger jiggs said...

that is the most stylish set of crutches I have ever seen!

Blogger Moe said...

How is it that you can look hot while injured? I bow to your craftiness.

THAT is what you have finished in the past month! HOLY crap. You are a machine. I am totally giving up walking.

That said, I think since you will not be walking anymore, you need a pool boy to carry you around.

Did you steal those crutches from Lil' Jon? Nice.

How do you and fellow Rhinestonians feel about the BeDazzler? Is using it considered cheating?

Blogger Quirkalot said...

Just beautiful!! Your toes look amazing. You should be a toe model.
BTW, what was the song we sang at graduation? I know that by the end I was humming "Rain, rain go away", but we sang a duet, remember? I have lost my memory of most of the events surrounding my high school years.

I want a sock monkey!
Or at least a pattern for a sock monkey, please!

Blogger Nick said...

Leopard print everywhere!

Blogger Ćœbermilf said...

In your face, injury! You can't keep Miss Kendra down!

Blogger slappy said...

What, no rickshaw?

I nominate the west coast contingent of the jiggsblog to transport you around via rickshaw.

Blogger Sachi said...

Wonderful! Every drop if it!

Blogger miss kendra said...

i LOVE the rickshaw idea. it pleases me greatly.

also, knitty kitty- if you order the socks online at sockcompany.com they send you the pattern. i used three socks instead of two for this guy, but that's because i screwed up.

Perhaps I wouldn't have hated my walking boot so much if I'd bedazzled it.

Blogger MonkeyGurrrrrl said...

You are the Crafting Goddess. I bow to you, humbled by your yartastic beneficience. Really, those baby sets are AH. MAZE. ING. Makes mine pale in comparison.

AND, was your foot beautifully pedicured prior to your ... incident, or was that something else you took care of while giving up on the whole walking thing?

Blogger Nick said...

How come Slappy gets a reply but no one else does? What makes him so special?

Blogger miss kendra said...

i'm sorry nick.

i just thought the rickshaw was brilliant.

Anonymous Gwen said...

OMGmonkeygrannysquare!!! How did you DO that??

Blogger Ellen Bloom said...

As usual, your knitting and crochet expertise are faboo!

Love the pearlescent nail polish and the gimp-cessories!

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

I am frustrated, because I KNOW I commented here this morning, but now my comment is gone. This has happened before, and what the fuck? I said soemthing like you are beautiful, blue, bruised & bedazzled ... and that I love the baby stuff.

FUCK YOU NEW BLOGGER! I KNOW AMY CAMPBELL IS BEHIND THIS!!!!!!

A.n.y.w.a.y, I'll try to make it NOT about me for a change and say ...

nice sparklies. You have mad skillz.

p.s. Fuck you A.C. !!!!

Blogger Melina said...

I want stuff! I want sock monkey stuff! Or the fingerless gloves from before...I look at your stuff with greed!

PS. It's my birthday next Saturday. If you made me something, I would paint you a little picture for yours. Promise.

Blogger Nick said...

I'm going to kill Slappy.

Blogger anonymouscoworker said...

I think your cast should have rhinestones that say "Disco Stu".

Blogger Monkey said...

Oh Miss Kendra! How I've missed you! And to discover you're injured! The drama of it all. I weep.

(Is it wrong that I have feelings for your Sock Monkey?)

Anonymous Frank said...

You are so talented, even in your unwalkingness.

Blogger Melissa said...

If my crutches had looked like yours, I probably woudn't have hopped everywhere when I gimped up my knee.

Also, I totally squeed when I saw the sock monkey and bunny ears baby stuff. I wish I had the talent and patience to do that.

Blogger Glitzy said...

Those sets are gorgeous! Are the blue and red blankies crocheted?

Love the added glamour to the cast shoe thingy and the crutches. Very cool toe nail color, might I add.

Blogger Auntie Sassy said...

OH MY GOD! I bow to your glorious, masterful knitting skills. Those sets are amazing! I am especially fond of the Sock Monkey set, which should come as no suprise to you.

Also, on a side note, I think I might employ you to come and pimp my Kia. It could use some rhinestones and leapord print.

Blogger Tits McGee said...

OH!

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!

I love you so. Fucking. Much.

Blogger ladylinoleum said...

I need that bunny hat so that me and my stale peeps will match.
