Stella Ehrhart is 8 and in the second grade. But on any given day, she also may be Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Princess Grace on her wedding day, or Billie Holliday.

Stella decided to dress as notable women every day because they represent who she hopes to be.

Surprisngly, her biggest challenge is remembering who's next. Pointing to a picture of Sandra Day O'Connor, she has to ask:

Mom, was I her on Friday?

OMG -- The Shire General Store is the most charming creation by a little kid since Caine's Arcade.

Here's the intro to the Etsy listing:

"I am Paul Blazek, age 10, and I like to make things out of polymer clay with my brothers. I have 5 brothers but really only Caleb, age 8, helps so far. I like Lord of the Rings and my Dad reads it aloud to us almost every night."

Joshua Smith was determined to help Detroit ease its desperate financial burden. So he did what any industrious 9-year-old would do -- he launched a successful lemonade stand.

Joshua's new business, which he ran with his pals for five days last week, garnered more than $3,340 in donations, with "sales" pouring in from as far as Canada, South Africa, Uganda, and the U.K.

By Friday, he had received an award for outstanding achievement from the Detroit City Council, sold lemonade to members of the University of Michigan's men's basketball team, and been awarded a $2,000 college scholarship from the Rosa L. Parks Scholarship Foundation.

"I'm really happy that a lot of people supported me," Joshua said. "It was successful but tiring."

Detroit will use the proceeds from Joshua's stand to maintain a park and playground near his house.
