Skipping Stones Episode 9 “Graveyards and Goosebumps”

Hello friends! I really wanted to get this post up for you all. In September, I found this skeleton at Dollar Tree and I just knew it would be perfect for a sitcom like this. But then…life happened.

Now, these sitcoms typically take more work than can be done in a single day, but I desperately wanted to get this one up today. So it was about midnight last night, and I decided to start writing a short sitcom that maybe … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 9 “Graveyards and Goosebumps”

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

Breaking The Ice || A Hockey Photostory ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Hello friends! I’m excited to share today’s post with you. It’s about a pretty popular Olympic sport…Hockey! Now, I know virtually nothing about hockey. So, I asked my resident hockey expert Lizo a few questions, and she helped me to know some more about this sport. So thanks Lizo! I would have been completely lost without you. Anyway, enjoy…Breaking The Ice! (Cloud’s POV) I shivered, and not just because of the frigid conditions. I, Cloud Star Stone, was…nervous. Before you shake your head and say, “Well, that doesn’t sound like Cloud, he’s cool as a cucumber,” let me explain myself. … Continue reading Breaking The Ice || A Hockey Photostory ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022
