Craft for Humanity: Crochet a Plastic Sleeping Mat for the Homeless

Creativity with a mission. While the creative process may feel good to us, it can also be useful to others.

Article from

These plastic crochet sleeping mats for the homeless are a project by humanitarian and environmentally concerned Dawn Warmbold from Arkansas that has warmed many hearts and bodies already. Dawn has found her mats to be in high demand.

The  sleeping mats are intended for people who are less fortunate, be that the homeless, or people in the third world.  These crochet mats are remarkable comfortable, and offer just enough to create a barrier between the ground and the body, to help retain body heat while sleeping.  It’s no problem if the mats get wet as they can easily be dried.

Before & after lofty living room makeover

Projects like this living room redesign by Alison Royer show that you can usually change anything if you just open your mind a bit. I appreciate all the details in this makeover — they do play a huge part in the new look — but it’s amazing how much a fresh coat of paint and those dark wood ceiling beams elevate the entire feel of this room to a new level of elegance.



Rosemary Olive Oil Bread

Recipe from

Rosemary Olive Oil Bread

1 cup warm water (100-110 F)
1 Tbsp. organic cane sugar
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped (or 2 tsp. dried)
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning (or pinch of each ground garlic, dried oregano, and dried basil)
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup bread flour + extra for kneading
1 egg, whisked + 1 Tbsp. water, for egg wash
dried rosemary, for sprinkling

1. In a large bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let sit 10 minutes to proof.

2. Stir in the salt, rosemary, seasonings, olive oil, and whole wheat flour. Add the bread flour and stir until the dough forms a ball. Knead on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes, adding more flour as necessary to prevent sticking, until smooth.

3. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl; cover; and let rise until doubled in size, about1 hour.

4. Punch down the dough and form it into a round loaf. Place it on a cornmeal dusted pizza peel or parchment paper; cover; and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, preheat oven (and pizza stone) to 400 F. Once the dough has risen, gently brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle with dried rosemary.

6. Bake on preheated stone for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.

Makes 1 round loaf.
