Gracie’s Fashion Tips ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Gracie

Hello friends! Even though it’s Camp Happy Heart, I figured that it would be fun to still incorporate some BABAD posts. I haven’t done enough of those lately. Anyway, since it’s Fashion Week, who better to feature than our resident fashion designer, Gracie? She’ll be giving some fashion tips. Handing this over to her now. Hey guys! I’m excited to give you guys some tips on how to style your outfits. Keep a simple color palette. This might seem obvious, but it’s a lot easier to put together outfits if the colors all match. I recommend having mostly neutral colors(like … Continue reading Gracie’s Fashion Tips ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Gracie

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

Farewell 2021

Hello friends! It’s New Year’s Eve! Can you believe 2021 will be over in about 9 hours? I CAN’T WAIT! I couldn’t think of a post to do today, but you know that song people always sing at New Year’s? I decided to make a lyric photoshoot of that. I looked up the lyrics, and the song is called Auld Lang Syne…I feel dumb for not knowing this. Anyway, it’s about two friends who meet up for a drink…of um, hot cocoa of course! I decided to let Sandy and Gracie model for this photo shoot. They’re best friends who … Continue reading Farewell 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

Hot Cocoa Party

Hello friends! Happy Monday! If I was doing my normal Blogmas posts we’d be halfway done by now. But we’re doing 31 days! So we’ve still got 18 days left! Today, the Small-Fry girls had a hot cocoa party. It was Cherie’s idea, so she’s taking care of all the hostess duties. Look at the hot cocoa station she made. There’s hot cocoa, mugs, toppings, and cookies! Sandy is a little disappointed that she isn’t in charge. The other Stone girls are just excited for hot cocoa. Oh, look! The first guest is arriving. “Welcome to our party! Feel free … Continue reading Hot Cocoa Party

Build a Bears Furever’s 4th Annual Halloween Fashion Show!

Hello friends! Can you believe it’s our fourth Halloween fashion show? I can’t! The bears had a lot of fun dressing up this year! They can’t wait to model their costumes for you all. First up, we have our first BAB, Brownie! She’s wearing the first-ever Halloween costume for the BABs! She’s dressed as a talk show host. I don’t really know why I came up with this, but I suppose it was genius to my 10 year old brain. Another costume from the inaugural Halloween Fashion show is this Miss America costume! It obviously used a different dress(was Rose … Continue reading Build a Bears Furever’s 4th Annual Halloween Fashion Show!
