My Teaser:


On Wednesday morning, and about a dozen Vicodin pills later, I am able to shower and wash my hair in preparation for my mother's funeral. I wear a navy blue dress that my mother always liked on me, but I don't bother to blow dry my hair, knowing full well it will end up wavy not straight.

    Very sad. Such a strong contrast between the ordinariness of a Wednesday morning and the disconnection of a dozen Vicodin pills!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
