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.

Christmas Tag


I just realized that I forgot to post the tag that I made to go along with my Roses' decoupage project for September. I love this double sided ribbon with dots on one side and stripes on the other. Stamp from Stampin' Up.

The craft room is now officially a bedroom! It took a while but all my "stuff" is neatly organized and packed away. It will be like Christmas when I can unpack it all again. What will I be doing since I won't have my paper crafting??? Let's see, I've got to learn how to speak Spanish; some of you may remember a piece of Christmas cross-stitch that has been unfinished for many years and a stampTV member helped me locate a pattern -- I'll be taking that project with me and hopefully, I'll have a picture to show you one of these day of it all finished and beautiful! Beth Moore's "Daniel" bible study will also be traveling to Mexico with me; I had taken this course at church a few years back but know that there's so much more I can learn by going through it again. I mentioned that I wanted to organize my digis on my computer and of course, there's the time that I'm going to be spending by the pool and in the hot tub!!

I'll be leaving on Sunday morning, October 3. I'll still be connected to you all via the internet so you probably wouldn't even know that I wasn't still in Texas if it weren't for the fact that I look forward to being able to show you pictures from this lovely area where I'll the living the next couple of months.

Betty, this makes me so sad, but we need to just look at this as a new adventure and not something sad. I look forward to your pictures and I hope you will enjoy your new home....I assume you already have a place to stay since you are leaving on Sunday.

Betty, I am obviously behind the times. I haven't been on Stamp TV lately. Just too many other things going on. I do hope you enjoy your trip and you come back refreshed and ready to stamp once again. We'll miss your lovely creations. Lovely tag for Christmas. Love the ribbon. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! Hugs to you until we meet again in cyberspace!

Wow, that ought to keep you busy! I want to see your beautiful needlework when it is completed, please. Poor Dee signed up for a class for Spanish for Directors, and they cancelled it due to her being the only enrollee! LOL! Maybe I should just send her down to you? Hope all goes smoothly, my friend.
