REVIEW:
Hours, no, days of fun!!!
I love coloring. Have loved it my whole life. It's calming, you create beautiful things, and you feel happier seeing the beautiful pictures in color.

I sat down to watch a movie, pulled out the coloring book and pencil crayons, and a couple hours later, couldn't tell you what happened in the movie. It just so happened to be National Coloring Book Day when I started this one, and that was cool too.
These intricate designs take a while to color. It's been over a month for me. I color for a bit, become more relaxed and at ease, then set it aside. I always came back to it when I felt stressed and needed a back from the norm.
Now, I've almost got the first page done.
Okay so I went a little overboard on the colors. The hubby said it was busy as heck, but like I said it was done in pieces and whatever felt good to me at the time. I will have to limit my colors in the next piece.
It was as fun as when I was a kid though. Time flew by, and I am okay with what came out. With coloring books for adults being a big thing right now, this is one people will definitely enjoy for its' designs, and that it will take you some time to get through. This is a great book for taking your mind elsewhere or nowhere at all. 

5/5

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

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…
