Teaser Tuesdays

I found myself talking to her as if she was someone I had known since childhood. And, I reminded myself, she wasn't. I had only met her that evening. She still had ink stains on her hands.

  1. I've heard so many wonderful things about this author but I haven't read any of his books yet. This sounds like a story I'd enjoy.
    My Tuesday post features SIX STRINGS.

  4. I like the sentiment of knowing someone you only just met, its great when you meet people who give you that feeling. I wonder about the ink stains though, that makes me question whether this is a real or fictional person (because the ink could suggest the speaker just wrote this person into existence). Great teaser!

    Here are Mine.

  7. I wonder about the ink stains. Is that a bad sign? I hope not since I frequently have ink stains.

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…
