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

Hello friends! Today it’s time for one of my favorite posts of CHH…the band photoshoot! The bears all enjoy this event. Here’s a shot of the whole band.

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

Winter Bearlympic Opening Ceremony

Hello friends! With this post, I think I’m officially out of my blogging slump. (at least, I hope so…) Today we’re kicking off the 2022 Winter Bearlympics! The Small-Frys have worked really hard to make this opening ceremony special for you all, so I hope you enjoy. To kick off the ceremonies, a figure skater emerges onto the rink. She gracefully glides over the ice. Let’s see what shape she made! Oh! It’s a lovely heart! Now another figure skater appears. Let’s kick off the 2022 Bearlympics! Now, two of our athletes will be singing the national anthem from their … Continue reading Winter Bearlympic Opening Ceremony

Merry Christmas 2021

Merry Christmas friends! It’s Christmas day! Can you believe it? I can’t. Probably because it’s not actually Christmas for me…so normally Christmas day is the end of blogmas for me. I take photos of all my gifts and share them in a haul. But I still have another week of blogmas left! I’ll be doing a haul sometime within the next week. I chose to do this for two reasons. For one, I don’t want to *have* to blog on Christmas. I’ve blogged on Christmas for the past 3 years…I can take today off! And secondly, I want to keep … Continue reading Merry Christmas 2021

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
