Back to School Portraits 2022

Hello friends! Can you believe the 2022 school year is already in full swing? I can’t! Anyway, the school-aged Build-A-Bears got together to take school photos. I always love doing this traditional post. I hope you like seeing these pictures! Here’s a picture of the whole group. We have quite a big group this year! Our only tenth grader in the bunch, Gisselle. The sixth grade class looks very similar to last year’s class. I think that the fifth grade is the largest. Azura is a new addition this year! Our fourth grade. Finally, our third grade class. Alright, now … Continue reading Back to School Portraits 2022

L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Three

Hello friends! It’s time for episode three of L’Etudiant! I can’t believe we’re already almost done with this series. Also, I had promised to give you all the conclusion to our Star Wars saga this Star Wars day, and erm…that didn’t happen. I *promise* I’ll make it happen next year! Anyway, on with the continuation of Gisselle’s story! “You’re going to love our cousins!” Claire beamed. Today was aigre-doux*. Adeline was going to be meeting all the friends I’d made over the past year, and we were going to celebrate. But also, it was potentially the last time I’d see … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Three

The Valentine’s Party

Hello friends! Happy Valentine’s Day! Want to see a fun party with the Small-fries? I sure do! (also for some reason this post literally took an entire day to make so please like it) Here’s a photo of the room before any party guests arrived. The refreshment table. There’s also this lovely corner filled with flowers and a guitar. Oh look! The first guests are arriving. The Caramel siblings snap a quick photo together. They’re all dressed up for the occasion. Chip and Sandy rush to greet them. “We’re your host and hostess!” Sandy smiles. “Not by choice…” Chip mutters. … Continue reading The Valentine’s Party

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

A Cozy Christmas Pajama Photoshoot

Hello friends! I’m not even going to say how many days are left until Christmas…it’s starting to stress me out… Today we have a cozy photoshoot of the Stones all dressed in their matching Christmas PJs. I think it turned out really cute, so let’s get started! First up, we have this nice group shot. Everyone looks so calm here! Then, we decided to get individual shots of all the kids. Chip went first, seeing as he’s the oldest. Sandy. Cherie. Cherry. Of course, these two had to get a photo together! Candy…is she sneaking a look at one of … Continue reading A Cozy Christmas Pajama Photoshoot

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

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”
