Virtual Christmas Card Swap 2022 || The Twelve Days of Blogmas Day 1

Hello friends! Welcome to the twelve days of blogmas on BABF! To kick things off, I’m going to continue a holiday tradition…the virtual Christmas Card swap! I’ll also be sharing some photos I took, trying to get the perfect photo for the card. Enjoy the photos, and then I’ll share my card along with the rules to participate in the swap! This year, I decided to feature Rudy and Claire, since they’ve never been featured on a card before. I thought it was appropriate that these Christmas-themed animals were featured on a card. I thought this photo was fun, since … Continue reading Virtual Christmas Card Swap 2022 || The Twelve Days of Blogmas Day 1

Build a Bears Furever’s 5th Annual Halloween Fashion Show

Hello friends! Can you believe it’s time for the 5th annual Halloween Fashion Show? Every year, I try to improve upon last year’s Halloween Fashion Show. Sometimes I improve the photos, sometimes the setting… This year, the focus was on the costumes. Usually, I reuse the costumes from years past, and I’ve done a little of that this year as well. But… This year we’re doing Marvelween! When I made Cali’s Scarlet Witch costume last year, I had an idea. What if the entire Halloween Fashion Show was Marvel themed? Fair warning, this post has fewer costumes than normal. But, … Continue reading Build a Bears Furever’s 5th Annual Halloween Fashion Show

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!

Make Clothes With Me

Hello friends! Today I’m going to be making some clothes to kick off Fashion Week! This isn’t really a tutorial, but I thought you might like to see the bears get some new clothes. Firstly, here are my supplies. I didn’t end up using all of them. But anyway, I bought the bee socks and patriotic scarf from Dollar Tree with the intention of making clothes for this post. The other pieces are pajama pants that have been very worn out and are no longer wearable. Firstly, I used the bee socks to make a dress for Gracie. It looks … Continue reading Make Clothes With Me

L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Four {Series Finale}

Hello friends! At last, we’re at the end of L’Etudiant Etranger. This is my first completed multi-season photoseries! That’s exciting, right? Anyway, today’s episode is the last episode ever…so I really hope you enjoy! Days passed and I still hadn’t made my decision. “Are your things ready for the airport?” Clarice asked. “Adeline sweetie, I don’t remember if you’ve ever told me when you’re flying home. Is it soon?” “Oh, I am staying in the United States for a while. I love it here!” Adeline happily replied. I loved it here too, but was that enough to stay? I couldn’t … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Four {Series Finale}

L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Three

Hello friends! It’s time for episode three of L’Etudiant! I can’t believe we’re already almost done with this series. Also, I had promised to give you all the conclusion to our Star Wars saga this Star Wars day, and erm…that didn’t happen. I *promise* I’ll make it happen next year! Anyway, on with the continuation of Gisselle’s story! “You’re going to love our cousins!” Claire beamed. Today was aigre-doux*. Adeline was going to be meeting all the friends I’d made over the past year, and we were going to celebrate. But also, it was potentially the last time I’d see … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Three

L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode One

Hello friends! Are you guys ready to begin our first photo series of 2022? I am! This is the first of four episodes that comprise Gisselle’s return to France. You might meet some new characters along the way! I’m excited to wrap this series up. I really like how it turned out. Also, the lighting in these photos may be a little off. That’s because I’ve been a bit busy lately, and I didn’t have a lot of time to make this post. But otherwise, I’m happy with how it turned out, and I hope you guys are too. It … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode One
