those are really cute, and it sounds like you went to a lot of effort to make them very nice....i like that they are magnets too so she can actually do something with them!

Thanks!  It was hard to pick outfits, because there are SO many cute ones that I left out due to time limits.  If I had girls I'd want to make some of the outfits that didn't get printed for them to wear!  I imagined that she would play with them with the 5 and 3 year old grand daughters so I wanted them to be moderately sturdy.  That's also why I printed up Barbara (who wasn't mentioned in the conversation) and made 2 of each type of outfit (shots, capris, coats, suits, etc.)

well, the next time you are giving her a present you can make her more clothes for the dolls, on going gift! hehe

No, I like to rock n' roll all night and "part" of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1 till 3.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I have a feeling these would be one of the dreaded-types of on-going gifts!   Wink  I might be best off sticking with the one-time novelty-type gift with this one.   Smiley

Thanks!  Today's gift-giving day, so I shall see how they go over in a few hours.
