Colby asked me the other day "when are you going to change that picture on your computer, you've had it for years"  Yeah..guess that's the last thing I think about changing.

So I went out looking for some today and just didn't find anything cute.  Then this really awesome kit came across my inbox this week (it will be in the stores on Friday) and I took a little break and created a new desktop for my computer.

You'll have to ignore the glare, but I think it's super cute

Angie, is that one layout in double the width and computer spreads it out over both screens? What measurements did you use?  I have two screens too and it never occurred to me to do that.  I have one single picture on each screen.  I'll post it soon.

Here is my desktop currently.  

 

I LOVE this Amy!  I always wanted to buy that collection but wasn't sure what I'd use it for.  I love what you did here, so cool!

Thanks everyone..it's been fun seeing everyone's answers to these quirky questions.

 

Amy I cheated I used this site:  wallpaperfusion.com   Once I found one I liked I clicked on it.  It then saw the size monitors I had and told me the size layout to go across both screens.  I just downloaded 1 and  used that as a template.

Sounds sneaky! I may give that a try - the seamless look between the monitors is really cool.

I change my desktop often. Right now I have the Botanical Garden's Conservatory that was taken at night, not by me. It was taken by photographer Robert Benson. This is one reason why I go back to the garden and the conservatory. It's such a beautiful building. Built in the late 1800's (I think around 1892) and is still holding up.

I started using my desktop as a calendar.  It's the one place I'm sure look first thing in the morning!

That is super cute, Angie! I'm ashamed to say my 1.5 year old laptop still has the default lighthouse pic in the background, lol!

What a beautiful idea, Debby. I know how much you miss Pirate. I have a bulletin board above my desk, and that is where I have photos of my kitties that are over the Rainbow Bridge. I also have framed photos of my kitties as well.

I always have the last layout I've made as desktop background. This way, I can see if something is wrong on my layout before add it on galleries.

This really is what mine looks like ALL the time. I design marching band flags, props, etc. and my working files are always there where I can find them. I am ashamed and a hot mess. :( I have a pic of my grand ellen back there somewhere. Don't judge.

totally dumb question here: how does one get to the "desktop" on a Mac?! is that the same as "Launchpad"? (yes I've had a Mac for 2+ yrs and still don't know this - well, I put files in my "Desktop" folders but I don't know how to get there like I do with Windows. Weird, huh?!

You can also click on 'GO' on the top (go to or open finder) and then choose desktop, and you'll see everything that's on your desktop. HTH. If you have too much on your desktop it will slow your computer down. I'm guilty of this as well.

Hi Andrea, It's an Angelea Blanchard Collection and I'm pretty positive it's retired because I always wanted to buy it and now I'm mad I didn't! :(

Wow! I learned something new about you. My youngest dd, Jaclyn, was in Color Guard and Winter Guard all through high school. Don't be ashamed! It looks like you have a lot of files to keep track of and they are all in nice little rows!

I used to have a slide show on my desktop but ever since I converted over to windows 10 my desktop just has the windows logo. I should really do something about that, one of these days......

That is nice to know Jaclyn! Didn't you love it? I miss those days so much. Our family has been involved in the marching arts for many years. My daughters marched in high school, college and drum corps and both taught well after they were finished performing. I had my own independent winterguard for three years as well. My son in law still teaches at Phantom Regiment and my daughter designs flags and props as well. That was when I was younger and less tired. HAHA!!

Do you mean the Statue of Liberty and the bubbles, Andrea?   That was Marie-Christine and I was commenting on how cool it is!

I thnk she had a love/hate relationship with guard!! lol!! She loved her coach and performing but I think she hated practicing with band in August in Texas summer heat. Guard would pick up the part pretty well, band; not so much. I think she liked Winter Guard more - no band involved. lol!
