A Mistletoe Wish for Christmas ~ A Hallmark Parody

Hello friends! We’re officially in the week of Christmas…guys, 5 days! Anyway, I’ve had this idea for a while. Like at least August. It was one of the things I was most excited about for the 31 days of Christmas!(Aside from Naughty and Nice) I’m really excited to share this with you all! Basically, it’s the BABs take on a Hallmark movie. Due to the nature of a Hallmark movie, this isn’t completely canon in the BAB universe. It’s got the same characters you all know and love though! Special shoutout to Issabelle and Maggie for reading through this and … Continue reading A Mistletoe Wish for Christmas ~ A Hallmark Parody

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”

It’s Thanksgiving Day. “You know…I didn’t have chaos on my … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 3 “Turkeys and Proposals Pt. 1”

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!

Adventures at Grandma’s House {Summer 2021}

Hello friends! So, I’ve been at my grandma’s house for the months of July and August! I of course brought the bears and took photos of them. (You may have noticed different backgrounds in some of my posts. This is why!) Anyway, here are the photos I took of them! As you can see, we had a blast. Here was where the bears stayed while I was at Grandma’s! On top of the dresser. As you can see, I brought Stella, Petal, Sandy, Mischief, Cherry, Cloud, Sparkles, and Chip. My grandma suggested that I make a small quilt for my … Continue reading Adventures at Grandma’s House {Summer 2021}

Late Night Ponderings ~ A Mischief and Sparkles Photostory

I’ve been at my grandma’s house for the past few weeks. There will be more on that later for sure, but that’s pertinent to this post for a couple of reasons. A) I’m not at home and therefore can’t do my planned posts, B) I’ve been on a roller coaster of emotions lately, C) the backgrounds and stuff are different than normal, and D) the first ever Sparkles/Mischief photostory was completed here at my grandma’s house and it’s made me really nostalgic for that time. I’m not entirely sure why I love writing about Mischief and Sparkles so much, but … Continue reading Late Night Ponderings ~ A Mischief and Sparkles Photostory

We’ll Be The Stars ~ Lyric Photoshoot

Hello friends! Today I have a photoshoot for you all, and I figured, why not add a song to make it more interesting? (that’s code for: I’m terrible at captioning photoshoots) Anyway, I took some photos of Stella along a starry backdrop. Then I realized…I’ve already done a Stella photoshoot during camp! Hehe, well this time I added Sparkles, so it’s not just a photoshoot of Stella. Anyway, enjoy! We are young, we are goldTrying things we didn’t knowLooking at the skySee it come aliveAll our fears became our hopesClimbed out every locked windowWe rode a lion’s maneAnd fell upon … Continue reading We’ll Be The Stars ~ Lyric Photoshoot
