Birthday party, part 4: More gifts!

I think this was Courtney's favorite gift of the lot. It was made for her by her Uncle Rob. It's doll bunk beds!

Isn't it awesome?! Here she was being shown the great points about it, apparently. ;)

One of those great points was this blanket. It was made especially for Courtney's American Girl doll, Marie Grace. It, and all the rest of the bedding, were made by Auntie Kris, who does a beautiful job with her embroidery machine.

So cool, huh?

Auntie Kris is also a quilter. Look at this adorable quilt she made for the other bed!

That bed set will be treasured forever, I bet! I think Courtney and Marie Grace were both pretty thrilled, to say the least.

Speaking of that embroidery machine, look what Kris made for Courtney's daddy:

He used to LOVE The Dukes of Hazzard TV show! :) So now he has his very own monogrammed towel set, in his favorite color! :)

I have one more special Courtney gift to show you. Although it seemed to take second place to the bunk beds at the party, I think it'll get lots more love when nicer weather comes! ;) Come back and see next time!

Love those bunks! Looks just like the ones me and my sister slept in a long time ago. The blankies I'm about to make for some American Girl dolls will not be as fancy as these! That embroidery is terrific too.

Thanks for the kudos, Grandma G.

You're welcome, Rob. Bet you could easily sell these if you made more! Hmm... I can see it now... custom-made for specific dolls with bedding personalized by Kris! Hotcakes, I tell ya! Nah, don't do it... Courtney's should be a one-of-a-kind. ;)

I've been looking for a little 'cottage industry' but there are already so many options out on Etsy. It's hard to put a dollar value on your free time. I was so glad that Courtney's mommy gave us this idea. I much prefer making something special over trying to buy something special.
It was fun spending a couple of afternoons thinking of her and all the hours she would spend playing with Marie Grace.

Fabulous embroidery! And what a cool set of bunk beds. I'm not showing these pictures to Charlotte, that's for sure!
