IROQUOIS COUNTY -- Two Watseka girls turned playtime into a business. Kara Floriant and Megan Martell started Flotell's Bracelets. They make the jewelry and sell it. The money they make goes to the Iroquois County Animal Shelter.

They'll be selling those bracelets Saturday at an iCARe adoption event. It starts at 11:00 am at Pizza Hut in Watseka. Or you can order bracelets right off the girls' Facebook page.
