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.

Card Session at Church


I forgot to take my camera to our group card making session at church yesterday, but here is a picture of the card I started there and finished at home. I think these sessions are going to be lots of fun. We make at least one card for the church to send to members for their birthdays, get well, or sympathy and then we can make one for ourselves. I didn't get to stay very long because Larry had made an appointment with the owner of the house we are buying to go out and take pictures. Here is a link with those pictures. We fell in love with the house all over again. Our friends from Florida went with us and gave their seal of approval too! Hope you enjoy the pictures!
