Day 319: November Desktop Wallpaper

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

Yet again, I have fallen behind on these posts. I know I say this every time, but my life is actually insane right now. Like, more busy than ever before, so you’ll have to bear with me, but I promise that this blog will be done by my birthday! At any rate, since it’s now November and I missed a couple of months, I decided to do a desktop/wallpaper pattern!

As always, I used the latest collection of Benjamin Moore colors chosen by Pottery Barn for every single color in this. A side note: I learned last night that the new CEO of Ben Moore decided to cut ties with Pottery Barn in order to finance better advertising, so while Pottery Barn will still recommend BM colors, they’re no longer officially affiliated. At any rate, I decided since all of November has us hungrily awaiting the end of the month’s Thanksgiving feast, I would use a turkey theme for this desktop. So I found a simple clip-art of a turkey and changed the colors, then changed the colors of everything else in the background. I chose to use American Typewriter as the font for “November” because, after all, Thanksgiving is an American holiday! I also added a little fall leaf to the calendar to mark when Thanksgiving day is, because I don’t know about you, but I always forget if it’s the third week of November, or what! Here’s the finished product:

As always, feel free to click on the above image to see it bigger and use it for your own computer! Here it is looking all snazzy on my desktop!

I think it turned out pretty good! I’m not sure if I’ll get turkey this Thanksgiving, but this sure makes me want some!

So, I thought I would just update you all on what’s going on in my life right now and ask you for your thoughts, prayers, positive energies, vibes or whatever you can give me! My hours at the paint store have been cut down a lot, to the point where I am forced to find a new job ASAP! I think of it as a good thing, because I really need to find something that’s better for me, health-wise, and that uses my degree more! But, I’m looking really hard trying to find something, so I’ve been traveling all over the place interviewing. I’m hoping to ┬áhave figured this all out by the end of next week, so please pray for a fast response from those I’ve interviewed with!! On top of all that, I’ve also got to figure out HOW I’ll get moved to wherever, what to do about my apartment, and until I find a job, how I’m going to pay for everything! Things are so crazy right now, but I have faith that it will all work out! So thanks to all of you… friends, family, and those who follow that I don’t even know… for being there for me!

Day 251(? days late): November Desktop Wallpaper

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

Since it is the beginning of a new month, I created another desktop/wallpaper for you to download and use! I somehow missed doing one for October… but hopefully this one for November makes up for it!

Like the last ones, I used the Fall/Winter 2011 Pottery Barn Color Collection for Benjamin Moore for all of the colors in this desktop. I found a line drawing of a cornucopia, so I decided to fill in all of the colors of that and use it as the main part of this one. I think it turned out really nice!

I really like this one! I feel like it really represents fall, November, and Thanksgiving! As always, feel free to click on the image to see it full size and use it as your desktop!
