I have recently been searching the web for fun calendar wallpapers for my computer. Not that I really ever see it beyond turning my computer on and off, but its nice to have something fun or pretty back there! Plus a calendar can be really helpful, especially if I am booking my schedule and the only other calendar is on my phone (hard to look when you are chatting!)
Yesterday I found Smashing Magazine, which has a creative mission every month for Desktop Wallpapers. Then artists submit their work to the site, and all the wallpapers are then posted on the website for free download by anyone! How cool is that?? Also really cool, you can opt not to include the calendar, so then you can search all the archived missions and use them anytime of year! Check the ^ above link.
Perfect Desktop – this would be so handy, I am unorganized!
Rainy Day Penguin – this is on my desktop because I love penguins!
Days Go By

I am spreading the word about the contest at SimplyCreativeBoutique, a beautiful blog that always inspires me with the many projects she shares!
Leave a comment explaining what “Creativity” means to you, she will pick the winner on Sunday the 29th at 8pm EST. Head over here and leave your comment!
Here’s my answer:
“Creativity is any moment for me that makes time seem nonexistent, that makes hours turn into a block of time I am hardly aware of and utterly consumed by whatever art form I have decided upon for that moment.”
