{May 19, 2013}   Spotlight Sunday for May 19th,2013/Day 19 of Reading Challenge

spotlightWelcome to my Spotlight Sunday! Every Sunday I put someONE or someTHING I love IN the Spotlight!

Anyone is welcome to use the idea on their own blog and spotlight whoever or whatever THEY choose, but if you do, please use my lovely graphic that my friend made somewhere in your post to show that the idea came from here! And I would love it if you left the link in my comments, so I could go check out what YOU spotlighted!

Today I’m doing a short and sweet update to bring some more exposure to a great website run by someone who used to sell Jewelry Candles when I was. (For those who are curious, I never specifically quit selling them, I just don’t push them anymore because I’m busy trying to get into doing Medical Transcription.)

Anyways, this woman has been making custom sock monkeys that are adorable as well as other items and trying to start up a business. Her website JUST went live yesterday and while there’s not much on there as of yet, she will be adding more and she will custom make the items however you like. Currently, she sells candles, tutus, tutu dresses, tutu headbands and custom sock monkeys with or without tutus. You can order the monkeys for girls or boys and specify the colors and patterns. I checked the site out yesterday because while I don’t have kids yet, I do have nieces and great nephews as well as a new great niece. I absolutely fell in love with all the different tutus and the headbands and the prices are VERY reasonable! Seriously….we have some stores in my area that sell tutus and the prices are always around $35-50 and I’m thinking, “I wish I could afford that!” The tutus on her site range from $10-15 and the tutu dresses from $20-22 and the headbands are $4! Not bad at all, right?!

So…you’ll probably hear more from me about this store in the future cause I expect to be a frequent customer as soon as I get some more funds coming in! 🙂

Go check out her site, Key to my heart creations, like her page on Facebook and spread the word! It’s a new SMALL business and we need to support small businesses!

Day 19-Favorite book turned into a movie

I have to go with “Hunger Games” here that I only read shortly before watching the movie, but I actually felt like the movie stayed pretty true to the book for the most part and I was satisfied with it. A lot of times, the movies change SO much about the book and it tends to make me aggravated but the “Hunger Games” movie didn’t change as much as some other ones out there. For instance, the “Harry Potter” movies….the ones I have seen are great movies, in and of themselves, but they are NOT true to the book. They change too much and it just frustrates me when people who have just seen the movies act like they know everything about Harry Potter when they can’t unless they have read the books! Ugh! Yes…geek girl problems indeed!

Okay, the sock monkeys are adorable!

I still haven’t read or watched Hunger Games . . . . I need to though!



OMG! Yes, you do! 🙂 Read the book first! 😉
The prices on the monkeys aren’t that bad either! 🙂
