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.

What a Blessing!

Have you seen the new Christmas release from Layers of Color? I can't hardly believe the awesome news I have to share with you today -- I am the winner of the complete release!! What a tremendous blessing and I just can't thank Laura at Layers of Color enough. I am so looking forward to sharing my good fortune with other stamper friends from church at our next meeting! We're going to be able to make extremely lovely Christmas cards this year -- the design team at Layers of Color have extremely beautiful examples to get us inspired!
What an exciting way to start the morning -- finding wonderful news in my inbox! But blessings abound each day -- we just have to slow down and recognize them. Yesterday, I was blessed by a couple of birds playing on my fence; want to see pictures????
See those little curved pieces they are standing on? They look so cute hopping from one to the next all along the fence -- just like they are chasing one another! They act like that fence was made that way just for their pleasure! And on the next picture, my husband says that the uppermost bird is the female (bet you can't guess why!!)
Enjoy your day,
Betty
