I first found out about Sweet Stellas through the blogging world. I joined her wonderful blog at and we instantly became friends. Before I knew Shannon had a shop, I become e-friends with her and she is one of the sweetest and loving people you will ever meet. When we later came to talking and she told me she had a shop, I was so excited. I went to check it out and I am mesmerized with her talent. What she can create for the consumer, is truly remarkable.

3. Ripley’s Believe it or Not: 

From the makers of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not franchise comes the new, just released Ripley’s Believe It or Not-Strikingly True hardcover book.  This book is over 250 pages and is a thick cased book of the strangest submissions around the world.  Ripley’s Strikingly True provides mind boggling stories, the most bizarre facts, interviews, and features all in one. It is the biggest compilation of the most awe-inspiring stories seen around the world.

I was beyond excited to receive this book as was my husband. We both love to read these stories and this book certainly did not disappoint.  We loved it so much that we are thinking of buying it for my father-in law for Christmas. The bright red encasing of the book was the first impression we got of the book. WOW! It is really a beautiful book- reminds me of a thick yearbook you get at graduation time. When you open the book up, it is indexed according to genre. Just to name the first few of the many topics covered:  bizarre facts about the world, animals, transport, feats, mysteries, food, science, and arts.

Ripleys was there every step of the way? Want to learn about the man who chews molten lead? What about the cat that can predict death? How about the vending machine that dispenses live crabs? Or the artist who paints portraits with burger grease? These are just about .1% of the many more tidbits seen in Ripley’s Believe it or Not -Strikingly True!  This book can be purchased on Amazon for $28.95. They also have a Facebook page seen here: =Ripley’s. Ripley’s is generously offering one reader their own book.
