These women have been looking forward … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 8 “Girls Night and Candy’s Delight”

Oh No, The Power’s Out!

It’s a stormy day at Camp Happy Heart. The Bold Butterflies cabin is gathered in their cabin, not wanting to walk around in the dangerous weather. The power flickers out and the four campers are left standing in the dark. “Oh my!” Cherie shrieks. “I don’t like the dark.” Cherie thinks she sees a ghost in the window. She runs to her bed and hides. “I don’t like the dark…” Swirl goes over to comfort her friend. “It’ll be alright,” she pats Cherie’s shoulder. “We’re here with you.” “Yeah,” Cherry pipes up. “Nothing will happen to you if we all … Continue reading Oh No, The Power’s Out!

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.
