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.

Life at Lake Chapala, Mexico

Hello friends! We are enjoying life at Lake Chapala. We did have to leave our first rental and move into another causing us to be without internet service for several days. We have some wonderful friends here who helped us move and unload all our "stuff" with their truck. We are much more comfortable now in a pretty house on a quiet street. I am sharing a link that has pictures of our rental home. I'd love for you to take a look!

We were planning on taking our time to look for a place to buy here, but the Lord blessed us by leading us to the perfect house on our second day of house hunting. It wasn't even one that we had on our list to visit but we fell in love when we saw it! Hopefully I will have pictures to share soon. I had left my camera in our car when we transferred into our real estate agent's car so was not able to get any pictures. We are to call the owner today and make arrangements to go back again with camera in hand!

On Saturday I'll be meeting with a group of ladies from church to make cards. I brought some supplies along but don't have a good place yet to set up a craft area. I've only made one card since we've been here so I hope I haven't totally lost my touch. No one in the group has a Big Shot and embossing folders so I'll be taking those, along with some Nestabilities die cuts. I'm sure they will be enjoyed by all! Will try to remember to take the camera too so I can share a picture or two of our card making session.

Later, Betty
