Frugality, second (or third) generation (updated with photos)
We found out that Samantha was coming last Sunday night. By the time the package arrived on Tuesday, Dollygirl had already carved out an extra doll-space in her room, made a bed from a box, and contrived some Edwardian-inspired bedding.
She had previously borrowed a pair of pajamas from her doll-playing friends around the corner, so Mama Squirrel's nightwear services were not required. In fact, this is one doll setup that Dollygirl has managed almost completely on her own. (We do have the free downloaded patterns for "Samantha's Pretty Clothes.")
Samantha's homemade bedroom furniture includes not only the bed but a washstand (also from a box) with a Mylar mirror, and a nightstand from a plastic container.
I am very proud of my next-generation frugal-hacker.
