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.

Projects for Ashton's Room


SEcond post today.......
This framed project was made by my daughter, Amanda, for her 6 yr old (almost 7!). He said that he wanted something with an outdoor theme, particulary deer. We knew that he really liked this stamp set of mine from Stampin' Up so it was pretty easy to choose what to make. Mandi has given it to him and he is so very proud of it!

Ashton's BeeBee wanted to make something for him too. I used blocks that were left over after I removed the stamps to mount on cling foam. Thought he'd like something with his name on it and continuing with the outdoor theme, I decoupaged some leaf punch outs on some smaller blocks. Don't know if he'll like the ribbons (although I think they're "boyish") but if he doesn't they can be removed and patched up with a bit of paint.

Thought you might want to see the little person we went to all this trouble for. He and his sister Brianna CAN be nice to one another "occasionally"! This is a card that I made for their mother to keep on her desk at work.

These are amzing projects. What a neat way to recycle those wood blocks...could see those used for Christmas decor on the mantle...but I do not have any blocks or a mantle. May be a good reason to unmount some blocks.
