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.

Anniversary Cards

I've been busy making cards for my friend from church who is so good at remembering relatives and friends on their special days. We make a pretty good team -- she tells me something special about the person and I find a way to translate that to a card.

This couple is in the process of building a home. What makes this card special to me is that I used a picture from when we were building our home in Conroe, Texas. This is the house we lived in before moving here to Mexico.

This is another anniversary card. There's a family story behind the plate of cinnamon rolls!

Before I sign off, I want to leave you with another picture of the Vermilion Flycatcher. He likes to sit on the beak of this metal figure I have on the front porch. Only problem is, he poops on my porch!!!

What a wonderful way to celebrate special events !!! You are so clever.
Guess you could put a puppy pad under the wooden bird. lol
Iknow, Iknow, such a weird sense of humour I have. :)

Such great cards, Betty! You put so much love in each card. As for the sweet little bird friend, guess it can be a love/hate kind of relationship, with the poop, cause I don't think they make diapers that tiny. LOL!
