3rd Annual Valentines for Empty Bowls

For the past 3 years I have teamed up with BookWorks to offer a fundraiser for the parent organization that facilitates Empty Bowls.  Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group.  I call my fundraiser Valentines All Around- I donate my time, BookWorks donates the space, everyone who attends donates $25 and we spend a day making Valentines to send to our families and friends.  All money collected goes directly to The Imagine Render Group.   From the fun of creating a special Valentine to the fun of receiving a handmade Valentine in your mailbox- it's Valentines All Around!

Here are a few photos from our day Feb 1.


  1. What a great combination: donating to a very worthy organization and making "heart notes" to share. I love the idea of all those cards going out into the world and landing in mailboxes and on bed pillows and at the breakfast table.

    Thanks, Margaret, for donating your time and your talent to this event, and to BookWorks for hosting it!

  2. What a wonderful way to spend a day. Thinking lovely creative thoughts with generous friends sharing their bounty so that we can share with those less fortunate as well as those we love. LOve all around x

  3. Love this... I hope I can participate next year!
