October 2021 Free Wallpaper

Double double toil and trouble!! Welcome to the spookiest month of the year. Hopefully this wallpaper puts you in an October mood! I enjoyed weaving the connections between the imagery – delicate webs, to antique lace, to the glow of a candle, to the sliver of the moon I saw on my walk this morning. I particularly like how the iphone wallpapers coordinate with the desktop this time (that check pattern is very similar to my grandmother’s cloth napkins we used when we were kids!). Makes me feel a little nostalgic. By the way, in case you were wondering, our theme for this month is “Core” – like getting to the heart of things, and staying centered.

Happy Haunting everyone!

It’s August!! The whole world seems to be kicking off this month. We are jumping into the first theater projects in almost two years, our kids’ choir is happening again, we will start school up in a couple of weeks, and the kids don’t beg me to take them to the pool every day because they are tired of it. So many new projects are getting rolling and even though we are still struggling with how exactly to maneuver this crazy state of the world, it feels good to have some familiar. That being said, I have talked to so many friends who say “I am not sure how to do normal life” any more. And that’s it, isn’t it? We are hopping back into the flow, but we are changed. And that is OK. We are going to be OK.

Our theme this month is “Swing.” It’s the feeling of jumping back into the “swing” of things. It’s being able to stay centered in the midst of forces pulling against us. It’s the feeling of flying and then of falling, replayed on an endless loop.

Happy August Friends! You’ve got this.

June 2021 Free Wallpaper and Playlist

Our calendar this next month is filled with camps, road trips, summer projects, and family visits. And I couldn’t be more happy about it. Our pool opened yesterday and at 8 a.m. the kids were already in their swimsuits ready to dive in (even though it was only 50 degrees and didn’t open until noon ha ha ). I love the enthusiasm and lightness of June days. Our theme for this month is “Play” and that is my wish for you – that you wake up filled with excitement and that you find moments to just play. Happy June friends!

March 2021 Free Wallpaper and Playlist

March is here friends. Since fall, I have been getting up early each weekday morning at 6 and taking a very chilly walk around our park. I make myself a cup of cinnamon tea and bundle up in all my layers. The last three months have been very dark and very cold. But this morning, for the first time, it was just a little bit light out when I left the house. And by the time I got back the sun was fully up and the birds were singing. A change is coming.

If you have been around me for a while, you probably know how I feel about March. I truly dread it every year because something terrible always seems to happen in March (it’s those darn ides…). But this time I plan on squaring my shoulders and facing whatever the pruning brings. I am going to do my best to search out spring even if it isn’t quite ready to find me.

Our theme for the month is “Song”. It is about finding those moments of beauty and poetry amidst the end of winter and singing. Love you friends. Keep on keeping on.

This month’s playlist is themed “Song”. It is full of Irish sea shanties, ballads, and songs that make you want to get up and dance. Enjoy!!

January 2021 Wallpaper AND Playlist!!

It’s a NEW YEAR my friends – a chance for fresh starts, full of hope and anticipation. So many of us have longed for this last year to be over and we can see the light on the horizon. We aren’t where we want to be yet, because the voyage is long, but we have sighted land and now must stay strong to finish the journey. Adv on friends!!

And we have expanded our offering of monthly art! For years Tim and I have made themed mixes to celebrate each season. And we want to bring you all into the fun – for this year, along with my desktop designs, we will be sharing a curated Spotify playlist to help you welcome each new month. This month’s theme is “January”. Enjoy!! And Happy New Year!!!!!!!
