February 2016 Workshop - Valentines

This month our "workshop" had a purpose other than book arts. Lorraine Miller-Wolf had us prepare Valentine cards for the Senior Nutrition Program home delivered meals, participants at the senior lunch sites, kidney dialysis patients and people living in our local board and care homes.

Lorraine brought some supplies and the rest of us did too.  Some of us had already made cards at home. We then spent the next several hours making Valentines. Here are the pictures. Need I say more?





And now for the results!




Lots and lots of cards.

Take a look at the February 14th blog. It shows the display of Valentine cards that have been part of the previous years' exchanges.

Valentine Display

NORBAG Valentine spirit is now on display in the kiosk at the Humboldt County Library. It is always wonderful to see the wide variety of exchange cards produced by our members and now everyone who visits the library can experience this show of creativity from previous years. 
















We would like to thank the Humboldt County Library for allowing us to maintain the displays in this kiosk, Lynne G for arranging them, and Dolores G for providing the photographs used here.

Valentine Making with Lorraine Miller-Wolf

Please join Lorraine on Saturday, February 13th for an afternoon of making beautiful, original valentines. This will be the 11th year that Lorraine has spearheaded this project. Let's try to help her break last year's record of 824 valentines that she gave to people receiving the Senior Nutrition Program home delivered meals, participants at the senior lunch sites, kidney dialysis patients and people living in the local board and care homes.


These valentines were made at last year's Feb. workshop

Feel free to bring your own supplies (suggestions are listed below). Lorraine will provide card stock, stickers, etc. for your use...along with some munchies! This is a perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day by sharing your creative talents with people who will definitely appreciate the cards they receive from you. If you are unable to come to the workshop but would like to contribute cards please contact Lorraine. Her phone number and email address are in the February newsletter.
