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.

Mailbox for Brianna


Last night I altered one of Target's mailboxes for my granddaughter's Valentine present. Didn't it turn out cute? Patterned paper, ribbons, some stick-ons, nesties and a butterfly punch were all I needed to make a really sweet gift. I'll find a cute little stuffed animal to put inside and it will be ready to go! I know she'll just love it!

Good news -- we received an offer on our house yesterday which we accepted. Praying that all will go well and that we'll soon be on our way to the next chapter in our lives -- retirement in the area of Lake Chapala Mexico!

Okay this is lovely, but now I feel really guilty. There are about 40 of these in the attic waiting to be embellished and I forgot about them. Darn it! Dee and I each came home with a bag full on the same day, a couple years ago. LOL. Brianna will just love this, Betty.
As for your news, it couldn't be better!!!!! I can't wait for your gorgeous photos of Mexico!
