Back to School Portraits 2022

Hello friends! Can you believe the 2022 school year is already in full swing? I can’t! Anyway, the school-aged Build-A-Bears got together to take school photos. I always love doing this traditional post. I hope you like seeing these pictures! Here’s a picture of the whole group. We have quite a big group this year! Our only tenth grader in the bunch, Gisselle. The sixth grade class looks very similar to last year’s class. I think that the fifth grade is the largest. Azura is a new addition this year! Our fourth grade. Finally, our third grade class. Alright, now … Continue reading Back to School Portraits 2022

Doodling with Azura || Collab

Hello friends! Today we have a doodling-themed collab with Maggie! It’s part of CHH…enjoy! Hey guys! It’s Azura, and in today’s post, I’m going to be doodling based on prompts that my friend Cherie gives me! I’m really excited…I can’t wait to see what I draw today! Your first prompt is…potato. Hm…that one’s a little tough…but I have an idea. Ta-da! A couch potato! Or should I say…a couch made from potatoes. Cute no? Okay, maybe it’s a little corny. But I promise my next drawings will be more normal. Your next prompt is makeup. I think that’ll be pretty … Continue reading Doodling with Azura || Collab

DIY Summer Signs

Hello friends! In order to have a great party, you need to have decor! In this post, I’ll be showing you all how to make a sign to decorate your party. You will need popsicle sticks, wood glue, and some sort of design to put on the front of the sign. Cut four even pieces of the popsicle sticks and then two pieces to go along the back. Glue the sticks together like so. Wait for the glue to dry. I waited about thirty minutes. Now the popsicle sticks are glued together. Now it’s time to add the design! I … Continue reading DIY Summer Signs

Oh No, The Power’s Out!

It’s a stormy day at Camp Happy Heart. The Bold Butterflies cabin is gathered in their cabin, not wanting to walk around in the dangerous weather. The power flickers out and the four campers are left standing in the dark. “Oh my!” Cherie shrieks. “I don’t like the dark.” Cherie thinks she sees a ghost in the window. She runs to her bed and hides. “I don’t like the dark…” Swirl goes over to comfort her friend. “It’ll be alright,” she pats Cherie’s shoulder. “We’re here with you.” “Yeah,” Cherry pipes up. “Nothing will happen to you if we all … Continue reading Oh No, The Power’s Out!

Spectating At The Bearlympics ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Hello friends! Today I have a fun little photostory about Cherie and Candy watching the Bearlympics. Enjoy! “The Bearlympics are pretty awesome, huh?” Cherie asks. “I mean I guess. They’d be better if I was in them.” “Oh really? What sport would you play?” Candy looks down in confusion. “I dunno.” “You could figure skate like Gisselle,” “Eh…I do like the pretty dresses. But I’m no good on skates.” “So I guess that rules out hockey with Cloud?” Candy nods. “You could try snowboarding like Waffle?” “Snowboards aren’t very fashionable.” “Well, you could join Cali on the slopes.” “Yeah…but I … Continue reading Spectating At The Bearlympics ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Swirl’s Secret Santa

Hello friends! Today it’s time for the Small-fry’s Christmas gift exchange! This story is essentially two parts, selecting the gift and then the exchange. It follows Swirl, so enjoy! I stared at the slip of paper in my hand. “Cam Johnson,” was written on it in green ink. “What on Earth should I get for Cam?”  You see, the name on the paper was the person I had to buy a gift for. This year, we decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange instead of getting a gift for every one of our friends.  I laughed at that idea. … Continue reading Swirl’s Secret Santa

Skipping Stones Episode 5 “Christmas Chaos”

Hello friends! Can you believe we’re already at episode five of Skipping Stones? I almost didn’t make an episode two after how much work episode one was, but I’m glad I’ve continued this series. Anyway, I wanted to make a Christmas-themed sitcom. This one is a bit shorter and simpler than the other episodes seeing as I have a tight schedule this month. It doesn’t have too much of a plot, more like funny anecdotes of Christmastime at the Stone household. Anyway, without further ado, I give you…Christmas Chaos! “I’ve got so many gifts to wrap!” Mommy looks over at … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 5 “Christmas Chaos”
