November is a Month to Remember - Plus a Free Download

Since November 11th is right around the corner, I thought that this month's desktop and phone wallpapers should honour the poppy, the universal reminder to remember. Remember those who gave their lives for our freedom, to honour the veterans still with us and to help us know that this was real life for many people. A real life that is harder for many of us to imagine today. This post also goes out to a dear friend Tish, who has helped me to remember better.

A Mid-September Free Treat

Welcome to September...or mid-September I guess. Sorry that there's no calendar with this month's desktop wallpaper. I figured since half the month is gone already, that it won't really be missed. 

Speaking of being missed, I've missed blogging! Even though I sometimes find it frustrating (especially those nights where I realize I don't have a post queued up for the next day), I've missed being able to share work, free stuff, inspiration and more with you! 

My goal is to get back to regular blogging next week.. and it might just be starting off with one post a week. Since I took the summer off from custom work and took time to slow down, things are now starting to pick up. Custom orders are officially back open (!!) and wedding consults have begun for next year. Plus, it's calendar time! I've been busy the last month working on the 2016 calendars for you guys, and am going to have a sneak peek of those for you in the next blog post! I'll also be covering how my summer went, in terms of the goals I had set for myself, and letting you in on what's to come for me and DZD this fall and winter. 

Below are two new wallpapers for you, one for your desktop and one for your phone. Hope you like them! I'll be back to the calendar ones in October (I can't believe it's so close to October!!!?! Time is going by too fast.) Just click on the photos to take you to my Flickr page, where you can download the images...or, if on your phone, just save the image to your gallery/camera roll, and upload to wallpaper from there!

Hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll see you next week!

Happy Canada Day everyone (or a little welcome to July for all you non-Canadians!)

I hope that summer is treating you all well. I've been finishing up my last couple custom orders, and really enjoying slowing down around here. We've had days of sunshine, and have been enjoying lunch on the porch with some laying out in the sun in the afternoon. The rainy days had me curled up on the couch with some movies. Some days, I feel like I'm not sure what to do with some of my time, but the calm, slow days have also allowed some great time. I've spent a lot of time with my nieces and nephews, bikes rides exploring lots for sale with Josh, and sunsets at the beach. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful town with the most amazing sunsets


Canada Day Special!

I've decided to celebrate Canada Day, and slowing down, with a little sale in my Etsy shop! Use the coupon CANADADAY to get Free Shipping on all orders over $15 (now through July 8th). 


Free Wallpaper Downloads

I hope you enjoy the free wallpapers this month! I thought some cheery bright colours, with some watercolour accents (of course!) and a little brush lettering would bring a little smile to your face. Hopefully it will make those office days go by quicker too. Just click on any of the photos to take you over to Flickr to download, or save the images to your computer or mobile device, and set as a wallpaper!

I've made two options for the phone download, depending on your app situation, and how busy you like your screen! Check them both out below!


Feel free to share the news around, but please direct your friends back to this post for them to download the images. It's very appreciated.

April Phone and Desktop Wallpapers - Free Downloads

Has your March been as beautiful as mine was? It's been so nice to finally have some temperatures above freezing, with lots and lots of sunshine! Such a welcoming warmth streaming in my windows, making for happier moments throughout the day. My cat has been loving it too, starting to spend more and more time outside again, after being cooped up for the last couple months. 

I'm sorry that I missed the monthly free desktop calendar and phone wallpaper downloads for the last couple months. I've been swamped over here, and the beginning of the months just slipped away from me. Before I knew it, the months were halfway over, and it seemed to late to give you a monthly calendar. My friend Dana sent me a little note in the middle of March, asking if the wallpapers were going to come back for the spring. Thankfully, I knew that I had time to get a new one painted, and here it is, all ready for you!

Like the last couple months downloads, I'm offering you TWO downloads. One for your computer, and one for your phone! Clicking the photos below will take you to Flickr, where you can download the file for each! (Once in Flickr, just click the downward pointing arrow in the bottom right corner of your window to download.) Or, you can just save the images at the top of this post for the computer wallpaper, and the bottom of this post for the phone wallpaper!


Do you have any ideas for what you would like to see for the May desktop and phone wallpapers? I'd love to hear your ideas! Share in the comments below!

August Desktop Download

We had a long weekend up here in Canada, so I'm a little late getting the August desktop calendar's up and ready for you guys! I've made two variations (after a request from my Dad), one with a black background and one with white. These are simpler, and leave lots of room for whatever desktop icons you have floating around, so it's not too distracting. I'm hoping to have some more pictures of other projects and pieces I've been working on up on here soon for you to check out! I'm even contemplating selling some of my original paintings. What you do ya'll think? Would that be something you'd be interested in picking up?

Click on the images to take you to Flickr, where you can download large sizes of these calendars!
