It doesn't mean that she doesn't care about you.
If I was going to give a special personal gift to my only niece and a friend wanted to go in on half of it or contribute some way...... I would prefer to just have it come from me alone.
The doll house may be handed down through her family and that makes it kinda a personal thing.
I wouldn't get offended if I were you. If you are that good a friends you should understand and let it go.

I dont want to burst your bubble , but yes,that was a snob and can happened for so many wrong reasons,maybe she change her mind about the present,and just run out of time.Maybe her christmas didnt went as planned.And yours did. Maybe and just maybe you yourself did something similar or around the same sort of thing and you dont remember.Being a christian doesnt mean theyre monks.

not all "christians" believe the same, unfortunatly. Perhaps some are more in tune to what they can do for the world without getting any of it on them!
Cleanlyness and all.
Shake the dust off of your sandles and look for another friend, miss We're judged by our works, and we shouldnt have to judge another for theirs. Keep your head up and find what you need to make you happy with who you are. Everything else comes natural.

she is not arrested or ill or anything else
I saw her in person on 23rd and she was going directly home to check that doll house for me
and she knew I had xmas presents for her
she also lied to me because she dropped off a food parcel to me and told me she is in a hurry because she has other food parcels to deliver to needy families
but when I went out to her car and the truck that her brother drove, both were totally empty [so their excuse that they were delivering food parcels to the needy and that is why they had to rush off was a lie]
she is deeply christian so the lies are a surprise - arent they supposed not to lie?

Have you thought that perhaps your friend had somewhere to go that was none of your business and used the food delivery as an excuse? Just maybe your insecurities come across stronger than you realise and this has put them off contacting you?

this woman is an ex smoker and I have never smoked and I was livid when I bought a sofa on ebay and it reeked of cigarettes so much I threw it away
I asked this friend to join in with my request tp write that ppl should declare if what they are selling comes from smoke free home and she pretended to be too busy and then later on told me she could clean such stench and I disagreed because the poisonous particles would still be there even if you managed to de stench it. if a child slept on that sofa it could cause cot death
