Plarn mats for the homeless

My mom and I were on the internet looking for some ideas to help out the homeless.  We came across a bunch of different links of people that use plarn (plastic yarn) that is made out of plastic grocery bags.  It takes a long time to make these mats but if I start now I think we can make a bunch.  I'm going to try and have these made up to donate to a homeless shelter by June 2011 and of course we can just keep making them and donating them as we get them finished.

I need all of my friends and family to PLEASE start saving all your plastic Wal Mart, Reasors, Target, etc bags for me!

Here is a video if you are interested in making them or want to see what I'm talking about.

October and November fundraiser

This is my latest creation, a rainbow scarf and hat!

For the months of October and November I am selling scarves as a fundraiser and all money is going to be donated to a family that I'm very close to, they are adopting some children and I want to help their adoption fund.  Everyone knows that adoption is close to our families heart since my brother Kylan and I were both adopted from Sout Korea when we were babies.  All scarves not sold will be donated to a local homeless shelter, if you are interested in helping me crochet scarves for the homeless this year I would love to have your help.  I'm also crocheting hats for the homeless and woul love help with that too, if you need yarn I have some to get your started.  Please email me at punkymonkeymissions@cox.net to place an order or to help with crocheting!
