We met on February 11 for an unusual workshop. Instead of learning how to make a structure or a new design technique, we made Valentines. Lorraine Miller-Wolf hosted her annual Valentine card making party with us. She collects cards from various groups and then delivers them to folks at the Senior Nutrition home delivered meals, senior lunch sites, dialysis patients and in convalescent and board and care homes.
It was interesting to watch our members making the cards. Some people are regular card makers and brought all kinds of materials to use: stamped and embossed cutouts, precut decorations and sayings, stickers and stamps. Others came and sat down carefully looking at all of the snippets of paper and attacked with scissors and glue. No matter which style, the cards are delightful.

We received a note from Lorraine who said she delivered 590 valentines made by several groups including ours. It was a delightful play day. And now, here are some of the cards we made (imagine a sound like TA-DA!).
