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

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!

DIY Picnic Table

Hello friends! Today is the last day of week one of Camp Happy Hear! I hope you’re enjoying so far, and I hope you enjoy today’s craft. “Candy, would you like to go on a picnic with me?” Sparkles asks. “Where?” Candy asks. “Um…outside? On the ground?” Sparkles replies. She isn’t sure where else to have a picnic. “I can’t be expected to sit on the ground!” Candy scoffs. “My pants are too fancy.” I know what would fix these guys’ problems…a picnic table! We’re going to learn how to make one in today’s post. Here are your supplies, popsicle … Continue reading DIY Picnic Table

DIY Weekly Schedule Board

Hello friends! Today we have a craft. Enjoy! Cali and Swirl wander around the main hall. “What do you think we’re doing today?” Cali asks. “I don’t know, why don’t we check the schedule?” Swirl suggests. “That’s not very helpful…” Cali starts. “It’s from two years ago!” “Hm, you’re right. We need something more accurate.” Swirl decides. What would really help these two is a schedule board! That’s what we will be making in this post. You will need a corkboard(I got this from Dollar Tree), a pen, some sticky notes, and a pair of scissors. I thought this corkboard … Continue reading DIY Weekly Schedule Board

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

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.
