Teaser

SHOULD BE READING


Parents the world over have expectations for their kids. Some want their kids to be straight-A students, or top athletes, or star musicians.My mom had great expectations--to see me at least graduate from high school (and believe me, that was a big expectation of the underachiever Kevin Leman back then.)

  1. Wow, he's come a long way then! So what do you think, can this book really transform a teenager in five days? Here's my Teaser from The Faerie Ring, and there's an author appearance and a giveaway, too!

  5. I think training your children to be respectful and responsible starts at infancy, not when they suddenly become teen-agers. However, if it works in five days, go for it. Fun teaser today.

  6. My condolences to his parents. I know how they feel as my ds almost dropped out before I could get him into a special school. Or rather, almost got kicked out.

  7. Five days? Will it transform mine into wanting to figure out what to do with his life? (He's 19...not much teenage time left....)

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…
