Magical Memories ep. 1

Hello friends! Now, if you’re new here, I’ve probably been mentioning this series for longer than you’ve been around. Seriously, I keep talking about it, but I just haven’t gotten around to sharing it! I don’t really know why, but I’m changing that today. The gist of this series is I share memories about getting each of the Build-a-Bears. Now, at this point it’s been over a decade since I’ve gotten a lot of them, so I don’t remember much. But I’ll try to share what I remember about each bear. I’ll probably share 5-10 memories per post, though it … Continue reading Magical Memories ep. 1

Bella and Andy’s Wedding

Hello friends! Firstly, this post was supposed to be up on Tuesday, but it wasn’t. Anyway, I’d like to thank you all for being so understanding! I was feeling kind of bad for missing the post when I made my apology post, but then Corrie pointed out that in general, it takes a while before couples get their wedding photos back, and that made me feel a bit better. So, that’s what we’re going to say happened! The wedding still took place on Valentine’s Day, but it took a few days for Bella and Andy to get their photos back. … Continue reading Bella and Andy’s Wedding

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

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”

Stone Family Portraits {Christmas Edition}

Hello friends! Today’s post was really fun to make. The Stone family took family portraits. They do this nearly every Christmas. I think they turned out really cute!

Time for the props! Ooh, is that mistletoe? Lil Choc uses this opportunity to give his wife a sweet kiss on the cheek. “Ew!” Cloud gags. Time for individual photos! Here’s Lil Choc. Periwinkle. Chip Sandy … Continue reading Stone Family Portraits {Christmas Edition}

Trim up the Tree

Hello friends! It’s the last day of Thanksgiving week…which means it’s time to get into the Christmas Spirit! I wrote this photostory in a very similar style to the original Stone stories that I wrote. It was fun to return to my writing roots. Anyway, this is the story of the Stone family decorating for Christmas. Enjoy! (Cali’s POV) Cali tapped her foot along the floor. It was Saturday, two days after Thanksgiving. Normally, the Stone family put up their decorations for Christmas on Black Friday. And yet, there were no adornments of Holiday cheer that could be found. No … Continue reading Trim up the Tree

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!
