Skipping Stones Episode 6 “Dances and Disorder”

Hello friends! It’s been a while since our last Skipping Stones episode, so I’m really excited to share the next one! This one is set at Camp and it’s pretty fun…enjoy! Campers gather around the schedule board. Sandy squeals in delight. Cloud and Mischief peek around the bears crowding the board. “What is it?” Mischief asks, not wanting to miss out on the excitement. “What’s going on?” Sandy steps away from in front of the board and points. “On Friday, there’s a camp dance! But only for the older campers. “See where it says ‘incoming middle schoolers and up’? That … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 6 “Dances and Disorder”

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

Easter Bible Photoshoot {feat. the Caramel siblings}

Hello friends! Happy Easter! I had a lot of ideas for this post, but ultimately I decided on this…a photoshoot of the rabbits captioned by Bible verses about Easter. I think this is a nice mixture of cute photos and a reminder of what today is all about. These guys are excited to share the resurrection story with you all! Swirl reminds everyone that every bunny is welcome here! Petal and Oswald remind you all that no bunny loves you like Jesus. From Matthew 28: 1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came … Continue reading Easter Bible Photoshoot {feat. the Caramel siblings}

The Disney Staycation ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Oswald

Hello friends! I feel like it’s been forever since our last BABAD post, but I guess it was only in January. Anyway, I decided it was long past time for another, so here you go! (fun fact, apparently that’s how I’ve introduced the last 4 BABADs.) I’m really happy with today’s segment. It’s one I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I think it turned out alright. Enjoy! “Are you okay back there kids?” “Why wouldn’t we be okay?” Oswald asked. “I still don’t know why you won’t tell me where you’re going.” “You’ll see,” The Caramel family walked … Continue reading The Disney Staycation ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Oswald

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

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!

A Day At Camp ~ Life at Camp

Hello friends! Today, Oswald is going to show you guys what a typical day here at Camp Happy Heart looks like! *yawns* Good morning guys! It’s a bit early. Counselor Teacup hasn’t even come to wake us up yet, though she’ll probably be in soon. It’s probably seven something. I like to sleep in, but some of my cabinmates(a.k.a. Cam) like to get up early and exercise. He falls back asleep really easily, but I don’t! It’s a little annoying. “Wake up kids! It’s time to get dressed and ready for the day!” Counselor Teacup announces. After Teacup leaves, we … Continue reading A Day At Camp ~ Life at Camp
