July 2021 Free Wallpaper and Playlist

We have spent the last two weeks in Kansas. Hot humid days filled with time in the best swimming pools, savoring melting popsicles, and the chaos and joy of so many cousins. This wallpaper is pulled from a little painting I have been piddling around with, painting glazes in layers with no clear intention or direction. Just enjoying the movement and relationships of the colors with that leisurely rhythm we all hope to find in summer days. The little rainbow at the bottom was painted by my three year old niece, Miss Lila.

Happy July friends!

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!

May 2021 Free Wallpaper and Playlist

Recently I have been holding things a little too heavily. I get wrapped up in the to-do lists that never end. The messes that seem to multiply of their own accord. I forget to stop and laugh. So this month we are leaning in to Levity. With this desktop design, I want to remember to sit and have a cup of tea and notice the world around me. I made it pink simply because it delighted me to have a pink teapot.

Be light friends.

“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.”

February 2021 Wallpaper and Playlist

Welcome to February friends! Our families’ theme for this month is “Poetry”. We are looking at all the ways the rhythms of our days are filled with the poetic stuff of life. Sometimes we overlook the beauty in the simplicity. This last week my kumquat tree that Tim gave me for my birthday had its first fruit ripen. Every morning I wake up to bright orange fruit on the tree in my bedroom windows’ sunshine. Holding one of the orange fruits in my hands – it feels like magic, like poetry. My wish for you this month is that you can savor the little bright moments fully.

Also, we have introduced a new monthly rhythm! Tim is curating a playlist for you all each month. This month is called “Poetry” and is filled with rich, romantic songs that are the perfect warm and vintage feel to your February. Check it out on Spotify!

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 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.

December 2020 Free Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

We have made it to the last month of this crazy year. I wanted to create a desktop that felt quiet…and peaceful. The snow flakes are made out of vintage fiber patterns. Making me think of that act of sitting and creating something slowly with your hands. Something to keep those you love warm when the slow starts drifting up. Love you friends. What a hard season it has been for so many. Take care of each other. Much love, Betony

November 2020 Free Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

We spent the last several days at my parents farm in Kansas. Living in the middle of the prairie, a few years ago their farm was devastated by a huge grass fire. Although everything is coming back in the way nature does, my father has spent the last three years strategically planting hundreds of oak trees. He is living out that famous adage “plant trees in whose shade you will never sit under.” November feels like that to me – a quieter, less assuming month that is about honoring and sharing traditions that will give back for generations to come.

October 2020 Free Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

Happy October! Here is a spooky-shadow-silhouette inspired wallpaper for your devices. Vultures, and bats, and spiders, Oh my!

Sorry to be a couple days slow. Had a Candy Land party to throw for a certain now 6-year old. Much love,

Betony

September 2020 Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

We just got back from a family trip to visit the coastal redwoods in Northern California for the first time. The minimal color palette of the forest, the smell of the needles and the fog, the peaceful immensity of the trees, all of these things have been resting in my sub-conscience and filling up my inner wells. Hopefully this forest-inspired wallpaper can bring a little of that feeling to your spaces as well. Thank you all for your continued love and care for our family and artwork. Happy September! – Betony

June 2020 Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

When we were kids, I remember going hiking in the Colorado wilderness and my dad teaching us how elevation maps worked. We would unroll the plastic coated guide throughout our adventure and watch how the landforms under our feet mirrored the fine lines on the map, leading us to new worlds.

June is a month when I want to get out and explore those landforms of the world. And maybe you are in a place where that is possible right now. And maybe you are not. But we can all still find little worlds to adventure into even if they are as small as a window box outside our door. It’s all about noticing – about how little steps can slowly climb a mountain.
