Yeah I remember my parents made us a dollhouse when I was 5 or 6. I don't remember any of my other presents before the age of 8, but I loved that dollhouse! My dad worked in construction, so he saved all of the extra wood left over and put it together and then they got wallpaper and carpet samples and put them in. My mom painted everything and sewed a bunch of curtains, etc. It probably only cost them $20.00 to make, but it was my favorite!
Haha Quinn, nothing beats a car, right?? I might have to steal more of your ideas, the valentine idea was really sweet.
Almeeker, I only laugh because it sounds like something I would do. And my husband would walk in and roll his eyes "again??"
Cassie, did your husband like the "I love you because" thing? I liked your idea of putting them all in a box
Jhowar, it sounds like you are already pretty good at the homemade thing! What are you doing with puzzle pieces and glue?? I've been trying to think of something for awhile now and I still don't have any ideas haha
