Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

A Blog for the New Year!

I have so many friends who have been blogging this past year that I have decided to join them! Olga, don't you dare say "I told you so!". I will be posting pictures of cards or other projects that I have made; or maybe just telling you a little bit about my day. I have a lot to learn about making this blog my own and will surely appreciate any suggestions you can give me. Looking forward to chatting with you here in 2010!
